Of all the hundreds of ways of organizing information, a flexible, smartly linked wiki is one of the most modern, useful, and efficient. VoodooPad lets you easily whip up personal wiki pages including text, images, and more. If a word or phrase on a page needs further explanation, select it and click the Link button, and VoodooPad creates a whole new page for you to expand on it. Once you’ve created a page, any time you type the associated word or phrase, VoodooPad automatically links it to its page. Pages can have aliases, too--secondary words that link to the same place. For example, if you have a page about Apple, you can create an alias for AAPL (Apple’s stock market ticker code), and then every mention of that AAPL will also link to your Apple page.
If you're a fan of desktop clients for Twitter, it's likely you're a fan of Tweetbot. Whether it's on your iOS device or your desktop, Tweetbot is one clean piece of software. Unfortunately, Twitter's latest wave of API changes has made it so that Tapbots, the engineers behind Tweetbot, can no longer support the alpha version of the app that was available to us until just a few days ago. Tapbots says they'll once again release Tweetbot for Mac sometime in the near future, but if you're just now looking for a Twitter client, or your Tweetbot Alpha no longer works, here are a few alternatives. They may not quite fill the void, but until Tweetbot is re-released, they'll work pretty well.
A text editor is not a word processor--the role of TextWrangler is to slice and dice words and spaces (and code) with great power and flexibility, not to produce finished, gussied-up documents. And none of the new features in version 4.0 makes TextWrangler any more suitable for designing cute party invites.
Losing a loved one is hard. Sometimes, all you’re left with is a few items, handed down so you might look upon them and remember the good times you once had together. But in the case of Tiny, the tech-head protagonist of Tiny & Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers, an heirloom can mean so much more than fond memories. It’s a matter of legacy, and even magical power. Also, it just happens to be a pair of old underwear.

When I was a kid, I discovered something amazing: detangler. You spray some on your hair, and voilà, a comb will run right through it no matter how tangled it was. To my knowledge, this product hasn’t been invented for headphone cables, and that’s a darn shame. But Jays seems to have solved the tangled cables problem anyway with the a-JAYS Four. These earbuds sport a flat rubber cable that just doesn’t tangle. I really tried, too. I balled them up and shoved them in my pocket, let them roll around in the bottom of my bag, never used a carrying case -- I even wore them in bed a few times. The cable is just wide and flat enough to resist knotting, and it simply doesn’t catch on itself when you ball it up. There’s no need to wrap or coil the headphones on anything. Just pull them out of wherever you stashed them, give ’em a shake, and they’re ready to go, untangled.
