The products that caught my eye at Expo include:
DiskWarrior 4, from
AlSoft: Earlier this month,
reviewed the latest version of the disk maintenance and repair tool, awarding it with a
Micromat: This application turns an iPod into a bootable diagnostic tool containing several Micromat utilities including TechTool Pro 4.
ArtRage 2, from
Ambient Design: There’s also a free version of this $20 painting app.
Toast Titanium 8, from
Roxio: I concentrate on the TiVo Transfer feature in this disk-burning utility (and also point you to
TiVoDecoder, an AppleScript that gets you around the 320-by-240-resolution restriction for exporting video from TiVo.
Toast 8, of course, was a
Best of Show winner
at Macworld Expo.
I also briefly mention another Best of Show winner, Axiotron’s
ModBook. In the time since I produced this video for
print subscribers, we got our hands on this tablet Mac—Jonathan Seff profiled it in the
last Macworld Video episode
as part of his
first look at the ModBook.
