Oh great! Yet another acronym to learn.

June 9th, 2007 · 1 Comment

We will find out Monday if Sun CEO and long-hair Jonathan Schwartz was overly optimistic, or right on the money. At a Sun event on Wednesday, Mr. Schwartz said “This week, you’ll see that Apple is announcing at their Worldwide Developers Conference that ZFS has become the file system in Mac OS X.” What does […]

File Format Redux

June 7th, 2005 · 1 Comment

In my earlier post about file formats I said: There was a day when every word processor had its own format. The reason developers did this was to “lock” you in to using their software. The idea was that once you had all your documents stored in their proprietary format, you would have to keep […]

What’s in a file format?

June 3rd, 2005 · 5 Comments

There has been some talk about file formats among our users and users of other word processors lately. I’ve seen a lot of explanations about what the different formats are and their relative benefits. Since we know a little about this stuff, I thought a little explanation of the major formats might help the conversation. […]

LinkBack and Apple

March 8th, 2005 · 3 Comments

Several people have asked how Apple feels about LinkBack. We actually talked to several different people at Apple about this last year. They basically felt like LinkBack would be useful and they encouraged us to go for it. Getting Apple to be actively involved in LinkBack, of course, is a whole other matter. The primary […]

Macworld loves us?

February 7th, 2005 · 1 Comment

The latest issue of Macworld has a review of Nisus Writer Express. (sorry, not online yet.) We got four mice, which is excellent! (And a great improvement from our last review.)

Nisus Writer and Pages

February 1st, 2005 · 4 Comments

Some people have asked about my reaction to Pages. So here it is: Pages is a simple to use application for creating great looking layouts, but it doesn’t have much in the way of actual writing tools.
