Try Out This Cool Growly Notes App On Your Mac

Growly Notes

Anybody remember free form database apps? Nah, me neither, but there was a time when they were all the rage on a Mac.

Such clever tools disappeared because nobody wanted … Continue Reading »

Uh Oh. Music Is About To Change. Again!


As much as I hate to admit it, I have a dwindling collection of 33 1/3 albums and 45 singles which date back to farther back in the last century than I care to admit.

A Mac Pro Level Paint, Draw, And Image Editor For $6 (hurry; or don’t)

Paint Pro

Far be it from me, a graphic designer wannabe, to rag on a Mac app that tries to be more than it is and fails, despite a price tag that should tell you what you’re getting probably won’t be praiseworthy.
