One of the benefits of being the Macworld editor in charge of iPod and iPhone accessories is that I get to play with lots of gadgets. On the other hand, too often that means seeing the same basic product over and over...and over. So it’s refreshing to see interesting (and useful) products from vendors who are making an effort to think outside the box. In this video, I show you seven recent products that have stood out from the steady flow of me-too add-ons.
The iPod has become so popular that a lot of people have forgotten about a rich and free resource for music—radio. No, not just the radio you accidentally hear when searching for your car’s Defroster switch, but Web-based as well as terrestrial radio. In this Macworld Video I look at ways to listen to and capture radio that streams across the Internet.
Macworld Expo is a place where developers often release new software. In this video, we’ll look at two programs: PhotoPresenter 4, a tool that lets you create animated slideshows; and PDF2Office for iWork, which lets you covert PDFs to Pages- and Keynote-formatted documents.
Everyone wants to work faster. In this video, we’ll look at a pair of products from the show floor that can help you work more efficiently with your keyboard. We’ll look at iKeysToGo for the iPhone and KB Covers’ new OS X Shortcuts Keyboard Cover for Mac notebooks.
