How many times have you pressed Command-C, only to realize that you forgot to paste the last thing you copied? And now it’s been copied over, so it’s no longer in your clipboard, and if you still want to paste it somewhere, you gotta go find it and re-copy it first. Sure, it’s a simple mistake, but the consequences can range from annoying to disastrous, depending on what you’re working on at the time. But what if your clipboard had the same DeLorean-like time-traveling capabilities of Apple’s Time Machine?
Support it, know it, love it. Without a community of open source developers, we wouldn't have alternatives to often very pricey software, and in some instances we wouldn't even have software made with the features we want! This week's Free App Friday celebrates you, the open source developer, and you, the open source user. Keep on keepin' on, and enjoy these three free Mac apps.
I have five Macs in my house, and I want them all to have the exact same iPhoto library -- but I don’t want to have to download pics from my camera or iPhone five times. I’d like to be able to merge the libraries every few months, but that sounds like a pain. Short of overwriting each computer’s iPhoto library every time one of them changes, is there an easy way to keep my pics in sync?
Recent Mac owners who rushed to get the latest and greatest computers with Thunderbolt on board have likely been disappointed to discover there’s nothing available yet to plug into them -- but that’s all about to change, as a video out of Japan reveals a new Blackmagic box in use with two of the ports.
Awesome name, awesome (yet familiar) concept: Trucks and Skulls is a physics puzzler, monster truck rally–style. Direct your monster trucks into skull fortifications, smashing them into little bits to gain big-time scoring. Trucks travel the “screamstrip ramp” when you drag the green wheel back with your finger or mouse. The distance back and angle of the wheel determine your truck’s speed and trajectory. Then you let go, and your trucks smash into skull forts and defenses, destroying everything in sight.
My iPad 2 is better than my old PC laptop in many ways, except one. As a businessperson, I still need to work with Microsoft Office files on a daily basis. What do I have to do to edit Office files on my iPad? And is it possible to sync them back when I’m done?
If you love Portal 2, but have been finding it hard to truly express your feelings then this may just be the opportunity you've been waiting for.

If you’ve ever needed a simple utility just to keep multiple pairs of folders or files in sync, chances are you’ve discovered File Synchronization, a small app that does exactly that. Thanks to a big update this week, the Mac OS X app is even more useful, with automatic synchronization and big speed increases.
While we’re all impatiently waiting to see exactly which day in July Apple chooses to uncage OS X Lion, the company isn’t standing still, releasing an update to the Developer Preview 4 released to WWDC 2011 attendees on June 6 -- and it’s not the final version quite yet.
If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, a number of Apple's competitors must be blushing in the wake of WWDC 2011. With Cupertino's unveiling of iMessages -- a service that may sound all too familiar to users of RIM's BlackBerry messaging service -- and a number of system tweaks for iOS that mimic the features offered by a number of apps available via the Cydia App Store, it appears that Apple is paying close attention to what their business rivals have been doing.
As stoked as we are to see these great perks coming to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users this fall, we feel there's a few more tricks that Apple could learn from the other guys. Here are five of our favorites.
