My Mac Feels Delightful Again

The term “delight” is often used to describe the feeling some users get when using iOS, whether that feeling is from the touch user interface, the apps, or something else. I often get that feeling when using iOS, too. While I prefer using the Mac for a variety of reasons, the feelings of delight on the Mac were less frequent for me – until recently. Changing up one of my main tools has brought that feeling back in spades. For you, it might be a different tool entirely.

MacTrack Legal Registration is Open!


We’ve all been there – you finish a legal conference with a feeling of euphoria. You’re invigorated, full of tips and ideas to implement in your practice, and are excited about all the friends you’ve made who are “your kind” of people.

Wait a sec – you haven’t experienced a conference like that yet? That means you haven’t attended MacTrack Legal, an annual legal technology conference held at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. The conference is geared toward lawyers who use Apple devices. This year the conference will have a special focus on iOS.

Apple discontinues its own photo printing service, recommends third-party Photos Projects apps instead →

Benjamin Mayo writing for 9to5Mac:

Apple is discontinuing its Photo Print Products service, which has been integrated into iPhoto since its launch in 2002. The service expanded from simple prints, to albums, photo books, and calendars.

Maybe I’m a dinosaur, but I used this service every year to make a Mother’s Day calendar for my wife and our daughter’s grandmothers. The story does mention some third-party apps that include Photos Projects extensions, so this isn’t a complete loss. Still, I’m sad to see it go. I hope the third-party solutions are as elegant as the Apple solution.


Add a Folder to the Sidebar in DEVONthink for Easy Access →

Jim Neumann, for the DEVONtechnologies blog:

Drag this folder to the Favorites section of DEVONthink’s sidebar. This will give you quick access to the group.

The post at the link talks about how to use DEVONthink as a “read it later” service, but that’s not what caught my eye. I had no idea you could add folders to the Favorites section of the sidebar. You can do it by either dragging a folder onto the word “Favorites” in the sidebar (I couldn’t drag it directly to the spot I wanted among my favorites – it went to the bottom automatically), or by right-clicking on a folder/group, and choosing “Add to Favorites.” I still learn something new about DEVONthink almost every week, and I’ve been using the program for several years now.


DEVONthink adds iCloud sync →

Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, writing for the Devonian Times (the DEVONtechnolgies blog):

Sychronization via iCloud was the no. 1 feature request on our list. And here we go: DEVONthink 2.10 and DEVONthink To Go 2.6 let you keep your databases in sync via iCloud and without entering anything except for the optional encryption password. No messing around with sync store names, server addresses, or login credentials. Add the iCloud sync location, check off the databases you want to sync, done. It can’t be any easier.

This is the feature in this update that will get most people excited, assuming they have enough iCloud space. But some of the other features, such as improvements to syncing on both platforms, are just as important. There’s a pretty good list here, so check out the full post.
