Griffin PowerMate Bluetooth for OS X: Twist & Scrub

Griffin PowerMate Bluetooth for OS X:  Twist & Scrub
According to Griffin, its PowerMate knob and button gained a “dedicated user base.” I don’t know whether that’s one thousand or one million users, but apparently that base is dedicated enough that Griffin was compelled to release an update to the PowerMate Bluetooth, which now connects to OS X 10.8+ computers via NFC.

OpenEmu OS X Multi-System Emulator: It Just Emulates
When I first saw OpenEmu, it was already able to play games from different previous gen systems, but it had this experimental streak to it. Four years later, it has put its wild days behind. The new OpenEmu is a suave and streamlined application that looks and behaves like a native OS X program.

Filedrop Wireless File Sharing: Dropbox Lite
A couple of months ago we found out about Instashare, an app that lets you transfer files from an iOS device to an OS X computer and vice versa. Filedrop is a lot like Instashare, but it has a couple of significant features that make it seem like the better of the two.

Logitech Solar Keyboard K760: One Keyboard to Rule Them All
If you’re like me, you probably tend to use all of your OS X and iOS devices simultaneously, which is one reason why I like the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K760. It doesn’t have a numeric keypad, but this single keyboard will work with all of your devices.

PopClip for Mac: An iOS Feature That Lion Forgot

PopClip for Mac: An iOS Feature That Lion Forgot
OS X Lion borrowed several features from iOS, like the Home-Screenish Launchpad and the annoying “natural scrolling,” which many of us have disabled. The necessity of any of those new features is debatable, but developer PilotMoon found an iOS trick that still makes sense in a desktop UI: the contextual menu that pops-up when you highlight text.

Flutter for Mac Lets You Pause and Play Via Hand Gestures, No Kinect Required

Flutter for Mac Lets You Pause and Play Via Hand Gestures, No Kinect Required
Until today the things we’ve seen that bear name Flutter are plain stupid – one of them intentionally so, but still. A new program for OS X devices is out to change that. Flutter for Mac lets you control playback on iTunes and Spotify simply by raising your hand.

Real Racing 2 for OS X Gets iPhone Steering, Costs 13x More Than iOS Version

OS X Lion Coming to a USB Drive Near You
I have been playing around with OS X Lion on my MacBook Pro for the last few days, and naturally I also upgraded my wife’s computer to the latest edition.

OS X Inception: Simple Finder Version

OS X Inception: Simple Finder Version
Yes, it’s true that Inception was a complicated movie. I enjoyed it a lot and watched it a few times. Each time, you pick up a few more details, plus that fight scene in the hotel was simply incredible since no CGI effects were being used.

Selfcontrol Internet Blocker: for Those Who Lack Said Trait

Selfcontrol Internet Blocker: for Those Who Lack Said Trait
There are already a several programs and browser extensions that can block access to the Internet for a set amount of time, but what makes SelfControl stand out is that it is ruthless. Designed by Steve Lambert, once SelfControl’s timer is set, it is set – quitting the application, restarting your computer or even deleting the damn app will not reset the timer.

Mac-in-the-Box

Mac-in-the-Box
The guys at 1 Block Off the Grid needed a high-end Mac to run Adobe After Effects, but instead of buying an expensive Mac Pro, they decided to build their own computer. Normally that would be nothing to write home about, but the 1BOG staff really put the hack in Hackintosh.

Megaman Effect: Best Mac App Launcher Ever

Megaman Effect: Best Mac App Launcher Ever
I don’t how else to say this, but the MegaMan Effect is a very…Windowish application, but I sure am glad it’s available to us Mac users. When it’s turned on, every app that you launch gets the Mega Man II level boss introduction.
