I posted something from Tim at Pandora about an increase in the fees internet radio stations are going to have to pay. It is worth a read and supporting if you use Pandora or similar and want to support them.
I really liked Readiris PRO11 but a number of your readers have had poor experiences in the past, primarily based on the number of pages scanned at a time. I reviewed a number of the SmileOnMyMac apps this week which completed their portfolio. I like them all.

    AppleNews – none, but got me thinking. Why should there be news every week? What are we expecting? A new iPod every two weeks, an upgrade to AppleTV already. Just because a lot of bloggers and podcasters want their to be news for their content is no reason for Apple to create something just for the sake of it.

    Projects – nothing really, finishing of the wedding movie which is really bad, a total waste of a great camera and good technology. Have been doing a lot of editing etc of my pictures, so haven’t taken any new stuff this week.

    My Blog – I posted something from Tim at Pandora about an increase in the fees internet radio stations are going to have to pay. It is worth a read and supporting if you use Pandora or similar and want to support them. I signed up with prMac which is a pretty cool way of getting you Apple news.

    Reviews – I really liked Readiris PRO11 but a number of your readers have had poor experiences in the past, primarily based on the number of pages scanned at a time. I reviewed a number of the SmileOnMyMac apps this week which completed their portfolio. I like them all.
