This is my main workhorse still. One of these days I’ll get around to replacing it, but no other computer has been so solid and so helpful. I’m looking forward to a retina monitor and better battery, however there’s not much wrong with this Early 2009 desktop-grade machine. It’ll probably become my local media host when I upgrade.
NuGuard KX iPhone Case
I’m not one to use a case to cover my screen, and this one offers great protection with an open face side. Great case for my iPhone 5.
I really didn’t care for all those .ds_store files. Asepsis just does one thing; it keeps them from happening. If you normally view hidden files, but you don’t care for those files adding up, this is for you. I use dropbox to sync files on servers, and this keeps those .ds_store files off the server.
RadarScope is the best radar app by a long shot. It is not a “weather” app. No temps, no “friendly” explanations. Instead, this app gives you raw radar feeds usually no more than 2 minutes old. It also gives different layers and readings of radar, not just the “composite” you see on weather apps. After a little usage, you can start to predict the minute that rain will show up or get heavier or stop. Sometimes, that’s rather important.
I’ll give this an honorary mention because for nine years, my first Mac chugged along without complaint. It took a lightning strike to finally get the machine to go into recycle, but what an absolute workhorse. I’d highly recommend any Mac Mini for the specific jobs they do.
I’ve given up on Evernote. Of course, that’s because I was using the free account personally. Even so, for when we were using a paid account, it was bloated and constantly adding unnecessary areas. Evernote Food? Really? Done. Working with Quiver now.
