Use Alfred to find and call phone numbers via FaceTime

Tweet this! Share on FaceBook

Continuity is great. Calling or taking calls from your Mac is even more awesome. However, you were only able to call a contact from your computer if you look it up with Spotlight.

I am an Alfred user. Even with the Spotlight revamp in OS X Yosemite, Alfred is still the best productivity tool when it comes to launchers and workflows on the Mac.

Calling a contact on my Mac was pretty cumbersome. Until today. I had to search for it with Alfred, hit ENTER to reveal the details, arrow down to select the phone number, Hit ENTER again to copy that number and then copy it into Continuity Keypad.

Yes, I know the commercial is annoying, but the idea behind this product is awesome.

Bluesmart is a carry-on with some extra features that may help you when you’re on the move. Connect it to your iPhone and it will tell you how much it weights, where it is, it will track you trip data, lock itself if it gets lost or stolen.

Besides that, you can use the built-in charger for your iPhone and iPad. No wonder the Indiegogo project has raised over $1.3 million.

Microsoft was not able to fix Office apps, so Dropbox did

Tweet this! Share on FaceBook

Working with Microsoft Office files from Dropbox may result in some really big issues. For example you could end up losing your edits if your friend opens the same documents and works on it in the same time.

Microsoft didn’t fix the problems, so the Dropbox Business team released a workaround.

Funny how the Dropbox video shows an OS X-like interface, but it hides the Apple logo in the upper left corner.

Tweet this! Share on FaceBook

Apple has just released a new TV spot for the holidays. I think the one from last year was much better and it had a nice hidden plot to it. As we all know, Apple has received an Emmy Award for it.

The new one is not bad, but they could have done it better. The call it “The song” and it shows the story of a girl that sets on to make a duet with her grandmother’s old recording. At the end se presents the song to her granny on an iPad mini.

What do you think?

Apple highlights iPad apps with new TV Ad and page

Tweet this! Share on FaceBook

The new TV Ad for iPad Air 2 is a fast-paced video of some of the ways you can use your iOS device. As a commercial, this is nothing you will remember tomorrow, so maybe that’s the reason Apple has created a new page on their website to highlight some of the apps.

They’ve chosen some great apps related to arts, music and education. Most of them are free.

Is it just me or Apple should change their Advertising Agency? We’ve seen no memorable ads lately and this may hurt their sales in the long run.

This is a pretty interesting story about a woman who got robbed. A young boy had stolen her iPhone and she managed to get it back using Find My iPhone.

There are two things that you need to learn from this: make sure you have Find My iPhone or Prey. And second: try to call the police, too when you’re following a thief.
