A freelance starter bundle for the thrifty Mac contractor

Posted by on Jun 21, 2011 in Apple | 0 comments

If you’re just getting started out as a freelancer, the sheer volume of advice out there about what software to pick up can be intimidating. Luckily, there’s a new Mac software bundle that actually acts as a really good one-stop shopping solution for new freelancers.

Here are the eight apps contained in the bundle, which is available for just $50 for another 9 days:

  • 1Password: One possible cure for all the rampant hacking of major sites and services going around is keeping incredibly complex, different passwords for each of your online accounts. But that’s almost impossible to remember. So use 1Password, which lets you store hundreds of distinct logins in one place. Just make sure the master password and PIN you choose to keep all that info safe is solid. 1Password is also great because it plugs into iOS apps to sync your login data across devices.
  • Billings: Time-based billing is a chore that no freelancer enjoys, but apps like Billings at least make it easier than if you’re doing it using templates in Word, for instance. Billings has awesome time tracking tools that integrate into your Mac menu bar or can be operated with hot keys, and an iPhone app that syncs info with the Mac version.
  • TextExpander: Thanks to keystroke shortcuts, customizable abbreviations and one-click coding shortcuts, this is the text editing tool that becomes the default mail composer, form-filler and report preparation tool for many a Mac freelancer.
  • LittleSnapper: Take screenshots, send clients design samples, and save website effects that you want to recreate yourself. If you’re building a design inspiration scrapbook, you no longer have to depend on scissors and magazines. Annotations and tags make keeping your screenshot connection organized and highly searchable.
  • WriteRoom: Distraction-free writing is a bit of a trend, and freelancers who do a lot of writing appreciate the benefit of being able to shut out the many demands for attention that a computer brings with it. WriteRoom is a solid distraction-free writing client that’s been around for a while, and you can sync with an iPhone client, too.
  • Radium: Some people can work without a background soundtrack, but I am not one of those people. You might have jumped to something like Pandora, or the hot new kid on the block,, but if you prefer the set-it-and-forget-it ease of internet radio, Radium is a good OS X front-end with a huge database of available stations.
  • Arq: Backing up your data is key when you’re a freelancer, because no one but you will be responsible for preserving your documents in most cases. Arq is an OS X client that plugs into Amazon S3 cloud storage (which you have to sign up for separately) to keep your offsite backup needs taken care of.
  • Alarms: This is a small utility that mostly resides in the OS X menu bar, syncs with iCal and can remind you about just about anything you need to do during the day. It offers drag-and-drop simplicity, so drag URLs from your browser or a file you need to work on from the finder, or just about anything else to bring up the reminder creation screen.

The total cost of all these apps taken alone is somewhere around $300, so if you’re a new (or experienced) freelancer looking to pick up a complete toolbox without straining your gray matter or your wallet, this is definitely a no-brainer.

Apple continues to blur the line between pro and consumer

Posted by on Jun 21, 2011 in Apple | 0 comments

Final Cut Pro X arrived in the App Store today, and though it’s one of the most expensive apps at $299.99, it’s also topping the Paid and Grossing app charts right now. That’s because it’s a relative bargain compared to Final Cut Pro 7, which was only available as part of the $999.99 Final Cut Studio suite. That kind of price drop will not only help encourage pro customers to upgrade, but it should also convince some pro-sumer customers to step up to the big leagues.

This is only the most recent example of Apple bringing significant price cuts to once expensive software. Mac OS X 10.0 cost $129.99, for example, while even a family pack of Snow Leopard was priced at only $49, and a single user license was just $29. Lion, which is said to be coming in July, will cost $29 for a copy that can be used on multiple Macs associated with your Apple ID. Windows still starts at $79.95 for entry-level upgrade pricing, and can cost as much as $219.99, depending on the edition.

But pricing isn’t the only difference. Windows also divides its software product offerings, making clear distinctions between tools it thinks consumers need vs those that professional users would want. Apple has always done a good job of steering clear of such defined lines, and although it does offer an OS X Server variant of its software, that product is much more clearly designed for a very specific use than Microsoft’s “professional” grade operating systems.

Apple also seems to be gaining ground in the enterprise thanks in part to its refusal to target professionals specifically. BlackBerry tried that strategy, and while it worked well for many years, mobile companies now appear to be following Apple’s lead, realizing that the new path to the enterprise is by convincing individual users of the value of your product, and not necessarily by selling to corporate IT. Apple doesn’t ignore business, but it definitely doesn’t unduly prioritize that market, as evidenced by the decision to stop selling Xserve late last year.

$300 is still a lot of money for a consumer to spend on a single application, don’t get me wrong. But Final Cut Studio once cost $1300. To say that it isn’t more likely that hobbyists or pro-sumers will drop the cash to take their craft to the next level than it was four years ago just isn’t realistic.

Some might claim that the disappearance of Final Cut Express, Apple’s mid-range offering between Final Cut Pro and iMovie actually indicates the distinction between pro and consumer applications is getting more defined. But Final Cut Express was priced at $199, just $100 shy of the new Final Cut Pro X, and it didn’t incorporate the same audio and color correction tools of the newer application, plus it carried a lot of limitations that made it pale in comparison to the full Final Cut Pro product.

And that’s the key: Apple isn’t narrowing the gap between pro and consumer by leaving out features and dumbing things down; it’s making things easier, certainly, but it’s also just making them more affordable. It’s the smart move for a workforce that is becoming more and more contract-based, where freelancers often have to source their own tools in order to impress potential employers and win contracts.

Apple is already a company that knows how to make a tool that everyone can use. Now that it’s increasingly becoming one that also knows how to make tools that everybody can afford, there are even fewer barriers to the potential heights it can reach.

Expert: True Retina Display doesn’t make sense for iPad 3

Posted by on Jun 21, 2011 in Apple | 0 comments

The latest rumor about the iPad 3 is that it will get a higher resolution display, with Reuters claiming that it might even be five or six times the resolution of the current iPad, which has a 1024 x 768 screen. Not so fast, says DisplayMate, a company that specializes in display calibration, optimization and testing. Even an iPad with 2048×1536 resolution, which would boast four times the pixel density of the current model.

While it would undoubtedly represent a marketing coup for Apple to be able to say the iPad 3 has a true Retina Display, DisplayMate says it would also come with a considerable cost — such a device would require “significantly more processing power, more memory and battery power,” and the screen’s “display brightness efficiency” would be much lower.

DisplayMate says that because of the typical distance at which users typically view their iPads, which it claims is 15-18 inches away, it can actually get away with achieving the same Retina Display silky smoothness with only a 240 pixels-per-inch (ppi) count, instead of the 300ppi entry point referred to by Steve Jobs when the iPhone 4 was introduced. Even so, the resolution required would be “overkill,” says DisplayMate, but there is another way.

Apple can still improve the iPad’s screen without making unnecessary sacrifices by compromising with a 1600 x 1200 display resolution, according to DisplayMate. That would achieve a 206 ppi, which would still represent a huge improvement over the existing screen, without nearly as much of a cost in terms of resources and battery life. DisplayMate says that scaling apps designed for the existing iPads shouldn’t be a problem at that resolution.

Apple gains a marketing coup by creating an iPad with quadruple the resolution of the current model, and I have little doubt that’s what we’ll eventually see. The company is already putting resources that support such a display in its OS, after all. But it’s not something Apple has to pull out of its hat at this point, given the competition so far, and making less dramatic changes that preserve the iPad’s other key selling features (speed and battery life) is a much more likely development for the iPad 3.

In fact, Apple introduced Mac book air in 2008 and that was in a Mac book world expo. The initial cost of that old matchbook was $1,800 at the launch time. However, this price dropped in April 2009 and that was to $1200. The new Mac book version would be a scaled down model from the earlier Mac book model.
