Skype Privacy Settings

I use Skype on one platform or another every day. I use it mainly on my Mac, and occasionally on my Nokia E71 via Skype for 3 (if out and about) or Skype’s own Symbian client (if wifi is near). On rare occasions I’ll use Fring, because it has the most fluid chat functions. It […]

MacJournal

I have just bought the latest MacHeist nanoBundle2 (after I found that there’s a $2 discount to existing MacHeist members) and MacJournal came as part of the bundle.

I’ve been tempted by Delicious Library for a while now and thought it an excellent time to buy it. Luckily, I heard about MacHeist, who, at the time of writing, are offering Delicious […]
