Friday Favorite: ShareTool

Another Friday Favorite, our weekly opportunity to get all sloppy over our most-loved applications. If you have an always-on Mac at home, a decent upstream connection and another Mac anywhere outside of your home network, you might find ShareTool to be as useful as I do. It allows you -- with an...

Turn your iPhone into a wireless drive with DataCase

One feature of many other handheld devices is the ability to use the device as a portable flash drive to move data between a couple of computers. The iPhone doesn't have that ability now, but will on July 28, 2008. That's the day that DataCase will be available in the iTunes App Store for $6.99....

MDNS and caffeine: How I got Bonjour running on my iPhone

See this picture? It's a picture of my iPod touch. But here is the interesting thing. The picture you see is actually a screen shot from my iPod touch. As you can see from the iPod logo, it has no on-board camera. Instead, it's subscribed to a Bonjour service on my iPhone and using its camera...

Bonjour for Windows 1.0.4 released

Apple has released a new version of Bonjour for Windows, 1.0.4, just in case you're zero-configuration networking with any Windows PCs in the area.

Alleged OS X worm creator disappears

I'm not sure if you've been following the story of "Infosec Sellout" (it's a tough one to follow), but apparently the anonymous Mac hacker has given up blogging about OS X security-- his blog has been deleted and renamed on Blogspot. Just recently, he made headlines by claiming that he'd developed a...

Picnic offers Bonjour shared folders

Picnic appears to be an interesting tool for small Mac networks where users need to share files. It allows you to "create shared folders of files which are automatically synced between all user's accounts using Bonjour." This could really make it easier for small businesses or workgroups to share...

Google's Summer of Code is a really cool, really massive project focused on open source that first started back in 2005. It functions on a pretty simple concept: the company gives out grants to student developers (this summer they brought on 900 from a list of 6,200 applicants) to work on open...

Sticky notes are great, but sticky notes that can have reminder alarms, be sent to other Macs via Bonjour, sent over the web and SMS, archived and more - are better.

TUAW Tip: Copying to iTunes

This tip might seem obvious to some, but I had a friend (a part-time switcher who bought a Mac mini last year) try to copy "Battlestar Galactica" episodes from his PC to his Mac mini. His solution was to manually copy the file from one Music Library to the other, then double-click the file...

Front Row and iPhoto Updates too...

I saw Dave's post about the updates, and so I launched Software Update and found a few that he didn't mention: Front Row Update 1.2.1 and iPhoto update 6.0.2. All I have to say is: bonjour! Update: looks like Dave got the iPhoto update in there in an update to his post while I was writing this...
