I rarely utilize video as a medium for sharing on this site. But if I did, I would use SublimeVideo. The hosted service provides universal playback of videos in any browser on any platform. SublimeVideo provides a beautiful HTML5 player with fallback to Flash (for older browsers). The only task you have is providing the […]

The spinning [OS X] beach ball of death would often pop-up whenever I started a new iA Writer document. I fired up Console.app to see if there were any hints as to what may be causing the temporary hang and found the following: 11/22/11 11:07:35.566 AM librariand: items added to file://localhost/Users/Hermes/Library/Mobile%20Documents/ mobile documents not enabled […]

iA Writer and WordPress publishing

iA Writer has some magic joojoo. I use this no gimmicks focused writing tool at work to record meeting notes and brainstorming sessions. I’m playing with a publishing flow (for this site) which will allow me to compose my thoughts within iA Writer and publish directly to the site using a few handy keyboard shortcuts. […]

Not so hot Amazon Kindle Fire

I submitted an order for the Amazon Kindle Fire yesterday and cancelled the order shortly after. On paper, the Kindle Fire is intriguing. The $200 entrance fee provides direct access to all things Amazon – Video on Demand, audio, shopping, books and magazines. It’s a bad game player, a bad app platform, a bad web […]

Last week I preordered the iPhone 4S (along with over 4 million others). One 16GB for Syl and a 32GB for myself – both in white. The processor bump and Siri is pure awesomeness. Period. I can honestly say that any experience I had with [the previous] iPhone 4 Voice Commands were purely accidental. Comparing […]

SimpleShare: 5GB for quick sharing + collaborating

What do CloudApp, Droplr, TinyGrab and GrabBox all have in common? Each provide a simple integrated interface for quickly sharing files or links across any medium – email, Twitter, Facebook, etc. – without worrying about a measly 25MB attachment limit. Even better? Most services offer a web interface which provide information like: Downloads / view count […]

Unstandard Theme, WordPress 3.0+ ready

Finally. Neglected but not forgotten, the Unstandard WordPress theme update is available for download. The jump from version 1.2.1 to 2.0 includes a complete re-write and supports post thumbnails (no more fiddling with custom fields), custom backgrounds and nested menus. The design has been modified slightly but still includes multiple color options as child themes […]

Supplement your backup routine with Disk Drill Pro

Cleverfiles was kind enough to provide three licenses ($250+ total value) for 5THIRTYONE readers. To find out how to claim a license for yourself, continue reading after the jump. You need to probably should check out Disk Drill (Pro). I’m saying this because I’ve used the utility a handful of times to successfully recover deleted […]

Post SSD install, the MacBook [Pro] Air not-so-thin

A couple of days ago I said I would share my thought post install. After swapping the factory installed Hitachi 7200 RPM hard drive with an OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD, all I can say is wow. The overall improvement was immediately apparent after the startup Apple logo appeared then quickly disappeared moments before the […]

I’m still sitting at work checking off work tasks but I can not wait to get home. Delivery Status just confirmed delivery of my soon to be installed OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD. The peppy little SSD should transform my MacBook Pro into an entirely new notebook – right? After a short period with the […]
