Must have Mac add-on – Quicksilver

with one comment

An entrepreneur just turned me on to a great tool for Mac OS X called Quicksilver.  The plugin provides a very fast Spotlight-like search function but with a more slick and speedy interface.  It does a bunch of other stuff too, but right now that basic functionality is great and meets my needs.

Now my control (Quicksilver), option (Ubiquity), and command (Spotlight) keys are all taken!  Hope I don’t need to install any more plugins that need those hotkeys :)

Getting organized across umpteen platforms (hopefully) using Tungle

with 2 comments

One thing that I’ve been delaying is finding a good solution to keep my contacts and calendars synced across my home Mac, work Mac, MS Outlook (in my work VMware Windows VM), Palm Treo, and Blackberry.  Admittedly I haven’t done a great deal of research on the best way to do this but I decided to go out on a limb and sign up for a Tungle account today.  I’m hoping it will do at least some of what I’m asking.  The big win would be if it could somehow get my Palm Treo back in the loop with regards to the address book.  A few months ago the Treo dropped the address book and I can’t for the life of me get it to sync again with my Palm Desktop on the home Mac.  Expect a review of the service once I get it up and running.
