Watch the video. Not all will be fooled by this, but it’s clever. Beware.

My review of iBank 5 is now up at Macworld.com.
I don’t use anything like this to manage my finances anymore, but if I did, iBank 5 would be the ticket. Great application.
No possible reason I’d want to overtalk this other than to simply say that Pete Seeger has passed and that he was a regular contributor to the life of my son from the 4th grade on. What a remarkable man and what an amazing experience for my son. Incredible how accesible Mr. Seeger was. What a joy to have met and known him.
Good night sir, and Godspeed.
Remember all those concerns about the cheesy new version of iWork? Remember how Apple was moving backwards. Remember how much crappy these apps were supposed to be?
Now, try to remember how often Apple updated those old versions of iWork when they were on a DVD and you maybe saw new features added to the app once every 2–3 years.
As Dan Moren notes in his Macworld article on these updates, this update does not mark the complete return of all the features available in the previous version of iWork ’09, but it is an indicator of things to come. Which appear to be many and good.
My review of VIPOrbit is up at Macworld.com.
Great little app created in part by one of the original developers of ACT!. While it’s definitely a first gen product, meaning I saw a few glitches here and there, overall it’s a fantastic app that, as it grows, should become an amazing tool for managing your relationships. I highly recommend it.
My review of QuickBooks 2014 for Mac is now up at Macworld.com.
This, sadly, is still the same-old same-old from Intuit. It’s not a bad product, it just doesn’t add anything of super-duper value to the product.
And nope… no file level compatibility with the Windows product… Although it is a little better at getting your accountant’s changes updated to your live data without having to send the entire data file back and forth between you and your accountant.
The Ruins of Detroit is a sad, but beautiful photo essay about the city of Detroit created by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Hard to imagine that Detroit was once a city of such amazing architectural beauty.
Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension.
The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at some point, the volatile result of change of era and the fall of empires. This fragility, the time elapsed but even so running fast, lead us to watch them one very last time: being dismayed, or admire, making us wondering about the permanence of things.
Photography appeared to us as a modest way to keep a little bit of this ephemeral state.
Crazy thing about these photos is how they all look like every building was abandoned in the middle of the day due to some sudden, catastrophic event.
