Re: Programs you said goodbye to

So I must conclude that the track changes corrections made in Pages are perfectly readable as track changes corrections in Word. Wow. I know many of us have been wary of relying on Pages to do this with PC Word users in case something goes wrong. If it really does work, that could be huge. Just pro...

Amazon Prime rocks, yea, verily. Makes buying a single, cheap-o book a no-brainer, really, which might be why I'm almost drowning in a sea of books. Ah, happiness.

It's not the graphic, but the placement. I had to look long and hard for it as well. So long as you're not trying to keep bandwidth down, I, too would recommend elevating the prominence of the link. I mean, once November is over and you've finished your 50,000 words, you should. Until the end of Nov...

The problem isn't that there's not a market, but that Keith is just one guy, and a guy who's supposed to be writing right now, not coding. He made the app for his own writing needs, and does not hesitate to point users to other software that might meet their needs better. This indicates a philosophy...

Spaces rocks. I love having my work in one window, and still keep my email and browser open, neatly arranged, and completely out of the way. And what's even cooler? I can have Scriv (or WriteRoom) open in full-screen mode and still switch to another desktop-space-thing. I love, love, love it. Quickl...

Apple won't be changing their hardware specs for a while; until then there's no real risk of hardware being incompatible with older OSes. But even still, looking at the list of software that anyone would consider even closely critical will have updates out very soon, probably within the month. More ...

Indeed, there may be only one voice, but it sounds so, so, so, so much better. I don't need much choice; I just want to hear my own writing aurally before I start to polish, and right now, neither Vicki nor Victoria are cutting it (nor are Bruce, Fred, Junior, or Ralph, natch). I'm sure there's more...

One feature I hope to be killer for me is the better voices. I've had the computer "read" back to my my own work and it's better than nothing, but worse than a real human. But with a real human, I sometimes interrupt to interrupt and say "what I really meant to say here was..." w...
