Need some help setting up repeating tasks in Omnifocus?
One of the great features of Omnifocus is the ability to have repeating tasks. Instead of ticking off a task and manually recreating the same one, as soon as you finish the task and tick it off, OmniFocus can be instructed to immediately recreate the same task for you. This is really useful for tasks you have to do repeatedly. Take the simple example of paying your rent – you can create a task each month that says “Pay rent” but this can be simplified by making the task once and setting it up to be a repeating task that shows up at the beginning of every month
PaperPort Notes by Nuance Communications does a lot of stuff…
It does text, drawing and voice to text. Oh yeah and it’s free.
The folks from Nuance Communications, the provider of Dragon voice recognition, have released their free iPad notes app – PaperPort Notes. A notes app that has a little bit of something for everyone. The app is light enough to be happy with it if you where to only use one notes capture method while still offering all the options without complicated endless menus to go through.
PaperPort Notes has the concept of a pile of pages of paper, inside of grouped stacks. Each page can be treated as an individual enhanced page so you aren’t stuck with one note type through the whole group of pages.
I was in Lake Worth Texas last week on a business trip and the Holiday Inn Express I was staying at actually had decent WiFi!
I was actually able to watch Netflix’s on my iPad without it stuttering.
It should be a crime that a hotel can charge you 15 bucks a day for a dial up connection claiming it’s “high speed internet”.
This is what the well dressed tech hipster is wearing this winter.
Winter is finally in full effect here in Toronto, with a couple of very cold days in the past week that gave me the perfect opportunity to test a pair ofMujjo touchscreen gloves. These gloves are woven throughout with silver-coated conductive fibers to allow them to work with capacitive screens, like the ones on your iPhone and iPad, and their unique design makes them better suited than most for the task.
You no you want to…
Writing with the Cosmonaut is satisfyingly firm and perfectly controlled, and it glides over the screen perfectly. I can’t really describe the gliding feel any better: it’s just perfect. When you use it for the first time, you’ll notice this immediately. (100% of the people in my household did.)

I’ve been looking for a simple writing app that will sync between my Mac and iPad. I think I’ve found it.
There is not a single thing you can change about Writer. Want it to be a different color? Too bad. What a different font? Fat chance.
The difference is full featured versus focus. It’s something that Hog Bay got right the first time with Writeroom — don’t bother with features, make the main feature the lack of features. Writer takes that thought process to the next plateau and does a really good job of doing so.
