Unbound for Mac

Apple’s iCloud Photos is a popular option for Mac and iOS users, but I’m sticking with my folder based organization. There are some good options for iOS when using Dropbox to manage your photos, but you are left with a sub-par viewing experiencing on the Mac, though.

Fountain Pen Review

Today, the Lamy 2000 is a piece of history. It fits in the same conversation as Charles and Ray Eames’ iconic lounge chair, Dieter Rams’ Braun wrist watch, and Sori Yanagi’s perfectly weighted flatware — timeless products with an infinite life and a market defining form factor.

Magwear Magnetic Wristband

There is nothing worse than losing a screw when working on a project. I happened to lose one the other night while taking apart a 2009 MacBook Pro. The Magwear Magnetic Wristband is designed to eliminate lost screws. It includes a 1.25″D x .25″ Neodymium magnet. Neodymium is one of the most powerful magnets on the planet. It can easily be attached to your drill, wrist, or even your belt. It weighs less than 3 ounces, so it won’t weigh you down much. When you take out a screw, drop them in the tray, and then, they are easy to find when you need to put them back in.

Group Text+

Group Text+ has immediately found a spot on my iPhone home screen. You can create pre-set iMessage groups, share pre-set snippets, and even share GIFs through the Giphy built in search. At just $1.99, this app is great for iMessage junkies. It can save you from the embarrassment of including the wrong person in a new group message. It also includes an iOS 8 extension for sharing from others app.

PhotoSweeper 2.0

Smartphones make it a little too easy to take a ton of photos. My biggest problem is that I take too many shots of the same photo without ever going back and picking the best one. PhotoSweeper 2.0‘s aim is to help fix that problem. It can scan your library and group similar ones together so that you can eliminate the ones where your eyes are closed or someone isn’t smiling. It supports iPhoto, Aperture, Adobe Lightroom, as well as folder based image libraries.


MilestonePod is a really interesting device for runners and walkers. On first glance, it looks basic. It doesn’t look high tech at all. By design, it’s simple. It’s attached to your shoe, and it’s always tracking your runs/walks. You can then sync the device over Bluetooth to their iPhone or Android apps. There is no start or stop button. You simply get moving, and the device tracks your steps. At $25, MilestonePod is a really in-expensive fitness tracker for runners of any kind.
