I just purchased a phone from this ebay seller and when it arrived it was as good as new!

It’s worth keeping an eye on these guys. The 2 specials below have sold out but they now have Apple watches for $189.

Quicksilver is one of my favourite apps for accessing documents quickly and doing all sorts of tasks. I use it almost every time I want to open a new app, open a document or find a folder.  I also use Devonthink to store all my files.  I am converting over to a paperless office. (Hopefully I will write an article about this someday!) If you are a Quicksilver and Devonthink user here’s how to add your Devonthink database to your Quicksilver catalogue so that all the PDF files in Devonthink can be accessible to Quicksilver.

If you want to upgrade your SSD drive this week is a good time to do it. Ebay have a ‘20% off tech’ sale. You can find Crucial SSD drives in there that work great in any Mac that takes a normal 2.5″ SATA drive. That’s all iMacs, all Mac Minis and most (but not all) Macbooks.

Enter the code ‘powerup’ at the checkout to get 20% off before December 27.

Crucial 1TB  $415 – 20% = $332

Crucial 500GB  $232 – 20% = $185

Crucial 250GB $139 – 20% = $111

These are a steal!

This post if for WordPress users. In this post I reviewed several blogging apps and found them all lacking. Since then Blogo has had a few updates and it’s evolving into a very useful app! You can check it out here.

Today I discovered a major bug using Illustrator with Apple High Sierra 10.13.1.  Illustrator is stuck on the ‘hand’  tool.  This renders illustrator completely useless because you can’t do anything at all.  A quick Google search discovered that lots of other people have discovered this problem in all versions of Illustrator and also InDesign. I am using Illustrator CS5  which is an old version so I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to resolve this problem. Thankfully there was a simple fix.

Dragon 6.0.7 was the most usable and bug free update of version 6 yet, but with the release of High Sierra, some issues have arisen.

It’s been a little over 12 months since version 6 was released and if Nuance’s previous release schedule is anything to go by we should be due for Dragon version 7 very soon.  If you are thinking of buying Dragon, you really want to buy at the end of a cycle, not the beginning of a new version. It tends to take about a year for all the bugs to be ironed out and I know of soem people who are still waiting to purchase version 6. Given that Nuance have released a new version in September 2015 and 2016,  we might have expected an update by now. It might be advisable to buy soon before version 7 is released.

That said – there have been some issues with High Sierra.  If and when those are resolved, that could be a good time to purchase version 6.

Buying guide: Wait a little bit longer for the High Sierra problems to be resolved then purchase version 6 before Nuance release a version 7.

The new purchase price is US$225 (or AU$475), but you can get it on special if you search.

According to Nuance Dragon 6.0.8 is compatible with High Sierra.  But in High Sierra the ‘scratch that’ command doesn’t work. The correction window doesn’t work either. These are pretty crucial to an everyday user of Dragon. So unless you absolutely need to be running High Sierra, I’d suggest you stick with Sierra and run Dragon 6.0.7 until those issues are resolved.

According to Nuance Dragon version 6.0.8 is compatible with High Sierra 10.13. Unfortunately High Sierra (10.13)  still has some unresolved issues with Dragon so  I suggest you stay with Dragon 6.0.7 and OS X 10.12

 

UPDATE 2/2/2018: See this post for a fix to this bug.

If you plug an Android phone into your computer the Photos app will open like it does with an iPhone, but it may not see the photos on your Android Phone. This happened for me on my Nexus 5X phone and I needed to give the phone permission to share the photos with my computer. Then all the Photos appeared for me to import in the Photos app. Here’s how to do that. Continue reading ⟩
