Re: Mozy or iDisk or DropBox .... ?

Thank you everybody for your kind replies. I do have an external hard disk already (actually two) and I also do practice the "keeping it at a friend's house" scheme. But paranoid as I am I'm looking for something that backs up continuously and automatically to a remote server -- just in ca...

Mozy or iDisk or DropBox .... ?

Hello everybody -- more and more I feel the need for a remote backup service, just in case my house burns down. I signed up for the 60-day-test period of Apple's iDisk and I have been a user for some time of DropBox's free 2 GB. But 2 GB is by far not enough for me. I would need about the 20 GB that...

Re: Best s/w for starting Uni.

I am a writer/journalist so I don't know how helpful my advice to you is ... 1. I use Scrivener for almost everything that has to do with typing something into the computer. S is extremely flexible, it is rocksolid and should you ever run into a problem: the forum here is very responsive, I would sa...

Re: WWDC - Snow Leopard

Trust me, so do we. Just because we are generally speaking more liberal and tolerant doesn't mean that we are intellectually more curious.

Re: WWDC - Snow Leopard

I am in the process of doing a lot of research an American intellectual life and I (as a German) can't say I find it superficial. Quite to the contrary.
Yes, the "American Way of Life" seems appallingly materialistic and vulgar at times. But, please, where are we Europeans different?

Re: Note Syncing in Mac OS X from iPhone/iPod Touch

I have the same problem and havn't found any solution either. The disadvantage of Evernote is that you have to be online to be able to sync. There are a number of note taking apps but none of them has the convenience of Apple's Notes. There is a new app out called Documents To Go (by DataViz). It se...

Re: Motivating myself while waiting to hear...

Live with it. This comes with the profession. Take it as part of it all.
That's what I tell myself. I am waiting too.
I watched a movie in the middle of the day just to kill time until the phone rings.
Best,

Re: Help! Software for web based research needed..

Thank you everybody. I have looked into the recommended apps and also discovered some others. The one that I like best is called DevonThink.

Do any of you have any experience with this seemingly complicated program?

As to my budget: I am willing to spend a maximum of 100 Euros.

Thanks again,

Help! Software for web based research needed..

Hello everybody -- I have been offered a deal to write a non-fiction book. Fantastic! And very, very intimidating... Writing a non-fiction book is an entirely different matter from writing an article or fiction as I usually do. And the deadline will be late this Fall. Up to now I have done all my wr...

Re: Notebooks for iPhone

I have purchased TextGuru, Syncbooks, WriteRoom and Notebooks (all for the iPhone/iPodTouch). Notebooks suits my needs best. It may not be as elegant as WriteRoom but has the functionality and stability that is necessary for me as somebody who makes his meager living by writing. It supports copy and...

Re: I finally got an iPod Touch. OMG. OMG!

I bought an Ipod Touch a few weeks ago. It's fantastic. I I always have it with me in my pants pocket. If you are looking for word processing: check out TextGuru and Notebooks which both have copy&paste and sync quite easily.

Re: ScrivNote for iPhone - feedback requested!

Thank you, xiamenese. I just checked the Scribbler website and there is no syncing planned at this point. Quick and easy syncing is really what I am looking for.
