About this episode:
You Mac nuts all remember the wonder that was Delicious Library, not? It set the scene for an era of Mac Apps that were developed with an eye for detail and looks.

As for it's purpose? It's a wine management app. You can store references, actual bottles you own and tastings in it, and there will be an iPhone app for it soon. Have a sip!

Screenshot based on Wikipedia article.

Timeline 3D offers for a great way to display... wel... events! But these aren't the dull grey timelines one had to make in school. These aren't the numbing presentations where all the stuff just turns into one big pile of dates and facts.

Timeline 3D will offer you a visually stunning overview of all your timelines. With the various export features, this app will deliver you the goods, for teachers, writers, business people or students.

This episode is brought to you by Bee Docs. Again, we all know that I only review applications I personally find worth reviewing, so I dearly appreciate it when developer goes ahead and sponsors the show anyway. That said, be sure to pay a quick visit to the site of beedocs at www.beedocs.com. Visit the site not just for dowloading the demo of Timeline (which you'll need to win a free license in the episode) but also check out all possible areas where Timeline 3D really shines (education, at work, for writers and businesses).

2008-10-17 :: Frank De Graeve
Length: 34s

Usability:

If ever there was a thing that attracts me the most in Mac software, it's clean UI design and usability.

It's this thought-out approach that a lot of Mac devs have on their software. It's often the little intrinsic details that get me excited about an app. You actually 'want' to start working with it just for the sheer fun of it.

This weeks app is no different. Except,... I also need to work with it instead of just 'wanting' to work with it.

NLMA 046 Systemtrash interview Leo Laporte

2008-10-07 :: Frank De Graeve
Length: 27s

What's this all about?

A few years ago I cohosted this vidcast called Systemtrash. It has podfaded by now, but I had a series of interviews with some very famous people in the podcastosphere (Leo Laporte, Ze Frank, Marshall Kirk McKusick, Adam Christianson,..).

Looking back I realize that those were the beginning days of podcasting. Ze hadn't even started to do his 'The Show' series, the TWIT army just had it's first few shows to listen to. Adam practically was the only real Mac-related show in town. And I'm glad I had the opportunity to talk with these people.

Hopefully you'll enjoy these intermissions of the show. Rest assured, a 'true' NLMA episode will be coming really soon, but do keep me posted if you enjoy these interviews.

NLMA on hiatus

2007-07-05 :: Frank De Graeve

Hello there, loyal listener.
I’m afraid I have some sad news for you. These past few months have been really, really good for NLMA. The number of subscribers reached over 2000 a couple of times, sponsorship went well, NLMA’s were great and available in abundance.

Helas!
None of this could stop me from putting NLMA on hiatus. There is a time in ones life where he just doesn’t have time enough. This is one of those times. The reason for this sudden lack of time is the approval of the constructionplans for our home. We can now start building. I’ve decided to help out in that construction as much as possible (as if I even have a choice, financially I mean). So there you have it.

Do not despair, however (or please do, and feed my ego):
NLMA will be back! I just don’t know exactly when. I might even throw in a couple of episodes from time to time.

So thank you, thank you for all the feedback, enthousiasm, and devotion for this show. 
I seriously couldn’t have done this without you listeners.

So long and thanks for the...

My main brawl with open source applications in the end always boils down to the same thing. They're ugly and often not very intuitive. I'm going to get mail about this one, I know... but I'm right! I just don't see an open source operating system getting the same level of consistency as OS X for instance. And the advantage of a consistent OS is that apps that run on that OS naturally inherit that consistency. But once in a while I'm wrong. And boy am I glad I'm wrong about this app.

This episode is sponsored by the nice people of Plasq. Don't know who that is? Yes you do... They make the coolest, most innovative-and-funny-at-the-same-time app out there: Comic Life. Go and check it out at Plasq.com. It's a super cool comic book creation app. You might go and say 'why would I make a comic book?'. Well don't see it as just a comic book creation tool, it's a new and original way of distributing your pictures, and it's fun to work with it, but I won't talk about that now... I'll have to review them one of these days. Thanks for supporting the show you people. …

Length: 21s

Some people know a winner when they see one. Some computer/digital lifestyle companies know a great OS feature when they see one. And then go and implement it in their OS. Features such as CoverFlow, Dashboard, we're all clear on which company I'm referring to here. Anyway, apparently they sometimes forget to include a specific feature. I still don't know whether I like that or not.
