The most immediately useful addition is this one: “View your Office and iWork documents directly in the note [...]

In one of the more visually hilarious moments in the current legal wrangling between Samsung and Apple, Samsung has submitted parts of Apple’s deal with HTC to the judge involved in the Samsung v Apple case.
Notice anything weird about it? The document is seriously worked over by some paralegal’s Sharpie.
Granted, not all of the 143 pages in the document are marked out, but there are a lot of [Read More...]
We’ve all accidentally saved over a crucial file and lost something important, and that’s exactly what the Versions feature of Mac OS X aims to prevent by providing a history of a documents life.

There are two ways to deal with paper documents. Fire, or… scanners.
Even in 2012, people still insist on giving us paper: bills, receipts, even business cards (!) all come printed on dead treeware, and all remain completely useless, unsearchable and easy to lose.

The signatures on Apple’s founding contract

A folder in OS X Lion has been discovered by Mac OS X Hints that uses iCloud to automatically sync stored documents between Macs. While iCloud stores your saved documents from Mac and iOS devices on iCloud.com, Apple has yet to implement a polished, Dropbox-like way to let users sync iCloud data between desktop machines.

George Pelecanos is a novelist dubbed by Stephen King as “perhaps the greatest living American crime writer.” Pelecanos has a new book out called “The Cut,” the first in a series. To get the sufficiently creepy ambiance just right, the writer rode around Washington, D.C. on a bike using his iPhone shooting video and taking pics in back [Read More...]
