A 50% savings! – Click to MacZOT

Keep your kids safe while they surf the net!

BumperCar: the Mac OS X Web browser just for kids. Offering unparalleled content-control and customization features, BumperCar is the most powerful Web browser for concerned educators and parents on the Macintosh.

BumperCar earned a prestigious Best of Show award at MacWorld San Francisco and garnered rave reviews in the press. Now, the all new BumperCar 2.0 runs on the same engine as Apple’s Safari, and adds a host of new features for both home and educational use!


New in Version 2.0

BumperCar 2.0 has been completely re-written using Apple’s WebKit allowing for enhanced stability, speed, and compatibility. We’ve also designed new homepage options for a wider age group of children. Safety settings are now available across all accounts on the computer, so a parent who is logged in can change their childs account settings without logging out. This is just a few of the hundreds of improvements to the new BumperCar 2.0!

The BumperCar Start Page

BumperCar’s start page is attractive, and encourages children to explore a collection of kid-friendly sites. Browse the Internet by clicking on any of the categories, or type a destination in the Address or Search fields. Children may also guide the bumper car into the Tunnel of Mystery to be teleported to a kid-safe site. BumperCar can be configured to be in either a Home, School or Pre-School setting, with personalized features appropriate for each location.

Filtering
Forces Google (and other popular search engines) to use their Safesearch features. This reduces objectionable content when a child visits these necessary sites.

Blocks profanity
If a page contains a curse word, BumperCar will detect it and redirect to a built-in page. The profanity list is completely customizable.

Prevents use of personal data
This checkbox allows parents to specify the information that children should not be allowed to type in a Web browser window… a child’s name or home address for instance.

Whitelists
Children can only access the sites that are listed on an approved list of websites. The age-appropriate whitelists in BumperCar are easily modified to include the websites of your local school, church, or to reflect your child’s individual interests.

Blacklists
To quickly and easily block a particular site, simply add it’s URL to a blacklist.

Full support for ICRA (Internet Content Rating Authority)
Filtering of pages whose publishers have self-rated their content.

Limits time the child can spend online
Prevents use during certain hours, (bedtime), and limits the total number of hours your child can spend online per day.

Reviews & Awards

BumperCar 1.0

"…A web browser with the purpose of restricting access to websites of questionable content and still…the most entertaining web browsing experience we’ve experienced yet"
– AppleLinks

BumperCar 2.0
"Easy to use; reliable; excellent safety, security, and filtering features."
– Macworld Magazine

"My daughter and I found a bunch of great kid-friendly sites and have added them to the ‘white list.’ As a parent, I have local control of the sites she visits instead of handing over control to a remote group of people that I don’t trust to do my job of being a parent."
– Mark Frauenfeldere – BoingBoing founder (and father of two)

HoudahSpot – Powerful Searching

Retail Price: $14.95

ZOT! Price: $9.95 a 33% savings

Download HoudahSpot Here

You really wanted to love Spotlight. We all did. Really did.

Now you may. HoudahSpot leverages Apple’s Spotlight engine to bring you a powerful, fast and easy to use desktop search tool.

Here’s why we at MacZOT think it’s worth the money:

  1. You’ll start playing with it and seeing different search results that you hadn’t though of searching on before, and that makes you understand what’s on your machine more.
  2. You can do a search based on file size, and see which applications / documents / folders are taking up a lot of room. When we searched on of our machines based on file size, we found 20 GB of mp3 files we had removed from their normal location during a file backup. This itself was worth it.
  3. Getting your query thought out and entered before SpotLight begins searching is the best. It’s annoying to have your machine slow down while the search starts. It can even be distracting.
  • Download HoudahSpot using the "Try" button above
  • Try the query based on size
  • Get your own copy

You can’t beat the MacZOT price.

Features

HoudahSpot is a file search tool based on Apple’s Spotlight technology. It enables users to quickly create and store powerful search queries.

Easy to use

HoudahSpot has been designed from the ground up with ease of use and convenience in mind. You will feel right at home. We feel it is not the user who needs to be educated, but the software that should be made to the user’s need.

Powerful

With HoudahSpot you may search by name, contents, date, type or any other file attribute. It all starts with a basic query form. Take it from there to pinpoint the files you are looking for. Create complex queries by combining criteria using boolean operators.

Fast

HoudahSpot leverages Apple’s powerful and fast Spotlight engine. It does not waste this engine’s horsepower to run searches before you are done entering criteria. The search starts only at your command.

Live results

Search results remain up-to-date as long as they are on screen. Create a new file and it instantly shows up in the searches that match it.

Two-paned query window

The top half of the query window allows you to express search criteria. The bottom half defines the search scope.

Three-paned results window

The top half of the results window lists the file matching your query. This list may be sorted at wish. The action menu enables you to open files, reveal them in the Finder, move them or trash them.

In the bottom half you will find a column based file browser. The left-most column shows the siblings of the currently selected search result. To the far right is a larger view of the currently selected file.

Hot keys

HoudahSpot may be configured to start up as soon as you log in to your Mac. It is then ready to jump to your service at the press of a simple key stroke.

Query stationeries

You may save your queries for later reference. A query set up with a few basic criteria and a search scope might serve as a starting point for future searches.

Saved searches

Saved searches are much like smart folders. When saving a search its run state and result sort order are saved along with the query. A search saved while running jumps back to life as soon as it is opened. HoudahSpot comes with 2 such predefined searches: ‘Applications’ and ‘Recent Documents’.

 

Templates

Queries saved to the template directory always are readily accessible from the ‘Template’ menu. You may assign keyboard shortcuts to up to ten templates. Templates may be used as stationeries or as smart folders.

Good-looking!

Requirements:

HoudahSpot requires Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.5 or later with Spotlight enabled.
