I Love to See Others in Our Community Developing New and Creative Products

A few months ago I wrote about Corey Davis’s awesome “Word Connect” app available for iOS and Android. Today, I found out that he has published an iBook entitled “Flight – A Multi-Touch Book”.

Flight! tells the amazing story of how humans learned to fly. Through the use of pictures, drawings, interactive photos, and video, it describes the exciting history and unbelievable stories of how kites, gliders, hot air gallons, airplanes, helicopters, rockets and the Space Shuttle were created. Flight! will teach and entertain young minds (as well as old).

Flight! A Multi-Touch BookThe book is available for pre-order on the iBook store and costs $2.99. As you can see from the screenshot, I have pre-ordered my copy.

OneNote Now on Mac and Free

When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.

Happy Podcast Birthday to MacOSKen

Tomorrow the MacOSKen podcast will turn eight years old. The first show was five minutes long and recorded on January 26, 2006. Was Apple even around in 2006? MacOSKen is the first thing I turn on and listen to each and every weekday morning.

I want to wish a happy podcast birthday to my friend Ken Ray and his awesome MacOSKen podcast.

TUAW: This is the most important Mavericks keyboard shortcut you’ll discover all day

Mavericks’ new Control-Command-Space bar shortcut came up once again during conversation in the TUAW chat room this morning. Once again, I was surprised that this cool little trick isn’t universally known.

As a public service announcement, we’d like to continue to spread the word about this delightful shortcut. Get yourself over to any text entry field on your Mavericks Mac and give it a try by pressing Control and Command together and then tap the space bar. The resulting pop-up provides easy access to smilies and emoji that you can drag to your favorite app.
