Xprove is a browser-based review and approval system targeted for producers, editors, and facilities. Clients don’t need additional software or licenses. You can have as many clients on a project as you like. I guess you could send large files to a client with some of the many services that lets you do that: Upload [...]
Tedium is a new web-based GTD system. You can access your lists from a modern browser on all platforms. Simple interface, but maybe too simple for my taste? Not sure yet. I think the tasks should have had more importance (in style), and the buttons under them be less visible. But I must admit they [...]
Today I saw this: Geocoordinates from Wikipedia for Google Earth. It has coordinates for Google Earth for 52 175 English Wikipedia entries. So when you tarvel around in Google Earth, you get lots of clickable entries from Wikipedia. Very useful! Which reminded me of something I thought about this summer while driving around Norway with [...]
A little break from macs, web and the digital world: Medecins Sans Frontieres publishes a list every year of the Top ten under-reported humanitarian stories of 2005. Congo, Chechnya, Haiti, India, Sudan, Somalia, Colombia, Uganda and Ivory Coast. People dying, and (almost) no press coverage. There’s also a Flash version. If you live in Norway, [...]
Songbird is a new media player for Mac, Windows and Linux, built on the same platform as Firefox. Beta is out now. Looks promising! Wonderful icons and website (let the world be beautiful!). Watch the screencast to have an idea of what it does. I just imported the whole iTunes library. Wicked fast and no [...]
I just bought a iPod Nano and an Nike Sports Kit for it. I’m going to use it for running and bicycling, and I’m thrilled by it already. A full report coming soon! So when I heard about Tangerine, an application that scans my iTunes library and figures out the BPM – Beats Per Minute [...]
You need Adobe After Effects and this cool tutorial from Creative Cow.
The old OS war… But when a Larry writes something as utterly stupid as this, he gets a birthday present like this.
Silicon Color announces that they have been bought by Apple. This is good news. FinalTouch is a program for color correction of movies. It’s typically used in high end environments where specially trained people do color correction on programs before airing them: Fixing color temperature in pictures, making cuts better by suiting the color of [...]
Apple has a list of several thousand widgets for Dashboard on Apple.com. And now you can add thousands more. All by yourself. First, download the new Amnesty Generator from Mesa Dynamics. It’s a small app for OS X. Next, head over to Google and check out all the so-called Google Gadgets. These are small pieces [...]
Buzz Image shows how to make special FX for movies. You get to see the original shots, the shots used for the FX, and the final composites. Including huge movies like “Brokeback Mountain” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Aviator”. Kate Winslet about to get her left foot removed. Notice the cool [...]
Yes, it’s only 81 days for christmas. If you need something different this year, head over to Fugitivetoys. Cool stuff. And even if I haven’t shopped at them (yet), I immediately like a shop with a blog – called the Hideout – where customers can comment, a community (or forum if you like) and their [...]
Fireflies, originally uploaded by BURИBLUE. …and this is what you get. Amzingly cool photo by Toby Keller (“Burnblue”). Put your camera on a tripod, and open the shutter for 323 seconds. Yes. 323. It must have been very dark when shot. But look at the great colors. And the fireflies seem to have been flying [...]
