TaskPaper and WriteRoom

Download TaskPaper here…
Requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later

For Mac users who want an easier way to make lists and stay organized. TaskPaper is a simple to-do list that’s surprisingly adept. Unlike today’s complex organizers, TaskPaper is just about you and your tasks.

“For the most part, the applications that are specifically designed for project organizing are way too complex, with too much horsepower to really be functional for 98 percent of what most people need to manage.” — David Allen, Getting Things Done

Today’s task managers have evolved into complex database-like applications, TaskPaper provides an alternative that harkens back to simpler (and faster) times. With TaskPaper you just type your tasks. As you type, TaskPaper recognizes and automatically formats projects, tasks, notes, and tags. It’s this simple:

For Mac users who want an easier way to make lists and stay organized. TaskPaper is a simple to-do list that’s surprisingly adept. Unlike today’s complex organizers, TaskPaper is just about you and your tasks.

Play Screencast

Flexible task management that works with you

TaskPaper doesn’t force a particular system on you; it provides you with basic to-do list elements and then you use them as you see fit. Other programs can’t match the flexibility enabled by TaskPaper’s text based interface. Text is the most clear and compact way to display and manage your tasks on a computer.

Focus on your most important tasks and to-dos

TaskPaper’s powerful filtering system makes it all work. Filtering lets you to keep thousands of tasks in a simple text file and then focus on a select few when the time is right. TaskPaper’s filter system is simple, you can focus on a particular project or tag with a single mouse click, but it also supports an advanced query language when you need it.

Reviews

“It’s a very simple, but intriguing and original concept. I’ve been using it for a few weeks, and it’s definitely worth a look.” — John Gruber, Daringfireball.net

“Chances are you’re looking for something with a good interface and that ultimately helps you be more productive; Hog Bay Software’s TaskPaper 2.1 satisfies both requirements”
— Dan Frakes, Macworld.com

“Because, friends, TaskPaper is just about fiddle-proof, and, frankly, I know a lot of people who could benefit from that today.” — Merlin Mann, 43Folders.com

“TaskPaper’s strength is that it lets you focus on crossing out those tasks instead of building a self-referential web of unfinished business which separates you from the cold, harsh reality of all the work you need to do.” — Scott McNulty, Tuaw.com

“Don’t buy TaskPaper if you’re looking for a sophisticated personal information manager, because it’s nothing of the sort. All it can do is manage smart lists for busy people, but it does this very well indeed.” — Giles Turnbull, MacUser 5/5 Rating

“Taskpaper is awesome software; great balance of structure and free-form. Lists!”
— Jack Dorsey, Twitter.com

Download WriteRoom here…
Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later

For people who enjoy the simplicity of a typewriter, but live in the digital world. WriteRoom is a full-screen writing environment. Unlike the cluttered word processors you’re used to, WriteRoom is just about you and your text.

“But if, when it comes right down to it, full screen is your holy grail, and the ultimate antidote to the bric-a-brac of Word, then you must enter the WriteRoom, the ultimate spartan writing utopia.” — Virginia Heffernan, New York Times

A creative place to sit down and write

Walk into WriteRoom, and watch your distractions fade away. Now it’s just you and your text. WriteRoom is a place where your mind clears and your work gets done. When your writing is complete, exit WriteRoom and re-enter the busy world with your work in hand.

Finish your novel, short story, or blog post

With so much e-mail and information pouring in, the digital life we lead can sure be a blur. If you’ve found it getting harder to focus on the words you want to write, if you’ve forgotten how great it feels to really write distraction-free, then let WriteRoom help you rediscover your muse.

For authors writing, and nothing more

WriteRoom is not Microsoft Word. It won’t generate a table of contents, it won’t place borders around your documents, and it doesn’t have an animated paper-clip looking over your shoulder. Instead WriteRoom just provides the essential features required to get words on the page. Stay focused with WriteRoom’s distraction free environment. Stay on track with word count. Stay safe with autosave. You just type, and WriteRoom will do its best to stay out of your way.

Furnish to your liking


Your WriteRoom can stay green-on-black, or you can choose your own colors, fonts, and page layout. Scale up your text for easy reading. Show the scroll bar all the time, or only when you need it. Even features like spell-checking and rulers are there if you want them.

Reviews

“But if, when it comes right down to it, full screen is your holy grail, and the ultimate antidote to the bric-a-brac of Word, then you must enter the WriteRoom, the ultimate spartan writing utopia.” — Virginia Heffernan, New York Times

“Unlike practically everything else in our digital lives, WriteRoom’s minimalist interface implies a truly flattering proposition: It’s you, not the software, that matters.” — Jeffrey MacIntyre, Slate

“Green text on a blank, black screen, with a square, blinking cursor. This was how most of us wrote on a computer in the early 1980s, and it’s resurfacing a quarter of a century later.” — Rob Pegoraro, Washington Post

“WriteRoom’s minimalist interface also frees you from the nagging urge to fiddle with margins, fonts, and other settings, leaving you with nothing to do but write.” — Nathan Alderman, MacWorld 4.5/5 Rating

“It’s a primitive application, to be sure — I suspect completely by design — but it may be just what the doctor ordered if you need to get your head out of your butt and put some words on the page. I can see myself spending a lot of time in WriteRoom.” — Merlin Mann, 43Folders.com

    Malware on my Mac

    All successful, and most plausible, malware attacks on Mac OS X have occurred in the last 2 years with the last quarter of 2007 being particularly prolific. Market penetration and overall sales of the Mac OS X system have directly mirrored development of malware, a phenomenon also demonstrated with other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows. Based on this data there is no reason to believe the trend will not continue as Apple continues to increase their market share.

    The concept of the economy of scale has historically meant that malware authors have not previously considered the Mac a viable target. This protection is being eroded by the increase in size of the Mac user base.

    IDC analyst Chris Christiansen is warning Mac users of the growing threat.

    

"Most Mac users take security too lightly. In fact, most are quite proud of the fact that they don’t run any security at all," Christiansen said. "That’s an open door; at some point it will be exploited."
    http://www.macnn.com/articles/07/12/31/mac.os.x.a.growing.target/

    “Apple users, your days of worry-free web surfing could be numbers. A Mac internet security and privacy software maker has discovered what is believed to be the first professionally crafted in-the-wild malware targeting the Mac Operating system.”
    http://www.scmagazineus.com/Trojan-targets-Mac-users/article/58290/?source=PSGL1SCM1001&gclid

    A new Trojan attack has been linked with illegal copies of iWork ’09
    http://www.macnn.com/articles/09/01/22/trojan.linked.with.iwork/

    Following the discovery of a trojan linked with copies of iWork ’09, the security firm says it has now found a variant, attached to pirated versions of Photoshop CS4.

    Malware On Mac OS X – Viruses, Trojans, and Worms
    A white paper on the history and future of malware and how it can affect the Apple Mac OS X platform.
    http://www.macforensicslab.com/ProductsAndServices/index.php?main_page=document_general_info&products_id=174

     

    OS X without FileDefense installed:

    When you run an application without FileDefense installed in the operating system, the application essentially has free reign over your personal documents. It is free to read them, write to them, or delete them. There are no restrictions for what an application to do to any or all of your files. For example, if a sinister programmer so chose, he or she would be able to write a program that corrupts all of your personal files in seconds so that they are beyond repair. Or perhaps a program may chose to silently relay your personal data to a network destination of its choice without you ever knowing. This is why viruses and trojan horses can be so devastating when they get loose – there are few safety nets in place for when an application is run. Traditionally, opening an application is like letting it loose on your system

    OS X with FileDefense installed:

    When you have FileDefense installed, every single file an application opens is questioned and brought to your attention, thereby limiting the damage it can do if it is malicious.

    If you do not yet trust an application,
    every file the application is trying to access (along with what it is trying
    to do to that file) is presented to
    you in a dialog, giving you the control to decide whether you want to allow
    the application to be able to access the document in question. You can even
    run a destructive virus with confidence that the damage it can do is limited.
    As soon as it starts accessing your files you will be alerted about it, and
    you will be able to force quit it and remove it from your system, all by simply
    choosing Kill to force quit the application, Allow
    This
    to restrict file access to one file only, or Allow
    All
    to give the application free reign to access the file.

    Malware on my Mac

    Traditional virus protection works by keeping a list of known malware and then scanning your hard drive for files that are known to be the same as the files in their list. Virus protection vendors who use this approach then create updates as often as possible for new viruses.

    This approach means that the system can only find files that it knows about, it will not stop any new infection.

    FileDefense is different – it uses an active defense approach.

    SubRosaSoft.com Inc created FileDefense in 2007 and have been distributing it since then. The software keeps an eye on all the programs running on your computer to make sure that they are only touching the things they are supposed to.

    If a new program is loaded onto your Mac and it tries to access files without your permission then FileDefense will stop that program and ask you if you trust this program.

    Active defense means that your system is protected from new malware before the anti-virus companies have time to design a new update.

     

    FileDefense used in 3 basic scenarios:

    Scenario 1:
    In this scenario you have just installed an application from a source you trust thoroughly, perhaps you have been using their software for years and it is a well reputed company. In this case you would normally click Allow All so that unnecessary dialogs do not appear asking you whether you want to allow the application to open specific files. FileDefense protection will be disabled for this application because you trust it.

    Scenario 2:
    In this scenario you start running some software from a source that you do not yet trust or distrust. Perhaps it is some peer to peer filesharing software. In this case you would click Allow This repeatedly for each file it attempts to access so long as you are happy to trust it with whichever files it is accessing at the time. You would continue doing this, and so long as the application does not try to access anything that you do not want it to access you could allow it to run normally, with it being able to open only the files which you have previously clicked Allow This for. If at any time it tries to access a new file that you have not granted it access to (even days later), a new dialog will appear asking you for your choice before it will be allowed to access that document. This effectively allows you to sandbox an application so you know at all times exactly what it is capable of doing based on the parameters you have set.

    Scenario 3:
    This scenario starts of the same as scenario 2. You run some software that you do not yet trust or distrust. However in this case, after clicking Allow This several times, it starts to open some files that you do not think it should need access to, and you question why it would want to be accessing those files. Perhaps a peer-to-peer application starts to read your private documents that should be completely unassociated with it. In this case it is accessing your personal files and you start to feel suspicious, you choose the Kill option to force quit the application, and then either do not run it again or perhaps contact the author for an explanation behind the application’s behavior. If the program did turn out to be malicious then you can be sure that any data that it did read or write is completely limited to the files that you granted it access to. And since you did not allow it to access any of the files that are precious to you, you can rest assured that the data contained in those files is still private and safe.

    System Requirements:

    FileDefense is programmed to run on the following minimum specification:

    • Apple Macintosh G4 800 MHZ or faster or an Apple Macintosh Intel computer
    • Mac OS X Tiger version 10.4, Leopard version 10.5, or newer.
    • 512 MB of RAM

    “Spyware on my Mac?” A ZOT Interview with MacScan.

    Why did you develop MacScan?

    MacScan was initially created as we saw a void in the Macintosh security market for programs that focused on user privacy and security. By offering a detection program for spyware such as keystroke loggers, trojan horses, dialer applications and backdoors, we here at SecureMac work hard to ensure users stay protected against the latest threats to their Macs.

    Does Spyware/Malware Exist for the Mac?
    The truth is that Macs running OS X are susceptible to spyware and malware, just like any operating system is. Spyware is any piece of software that can spy on the user, despite if it gets into the system automatically, or if it is manually installed. MacScan exists to address spyware, malware, and privacy concerns on the Mac, and it was first developed back when there was a rise in spyware being created for OS X so as to be a proactive approach to security as well as a utility to help users remove the spyware infecting their systems.

    The DNSChanger Trojan Horse has been the most widely reported piece of spyware for the Macintosh; once installed on a system, the user’s DNS servers are set to malicious servers sending all data through them. Web traffic being returned to the user are infested with ads injected in the webpages requested.

    Does all Spyware for the Mac require administrative passwords?
    No, just like any piece of software, the installation can be installed at the user level without the need for authentication or administrative permissions. Advanced spyware programs can take advantage of security holes to gain higher access or even wait until the user authenticates for another task and elevate its own permissions.

    What types of spyware are most common on the Macintosh?
    The single most common piece of spyware to affect OS X is the DNSChanger Trojan Horse, followed closely by keystroke logging programs, which can record everything you type on your computer, from websites you visit, to credit card numbers, or passwords for your business. Other trojan horses are also prevalent. Other forms of spyware include dialer applications that can use your phone line to dial long-distance numbers, commercial spyware sold by companies for businesses or households to spy on their users, and remote administration programs used maliciously.

    How is MacScan unique from other Mac security apps?

    MacScan has two very unique features to it. The first is the quick and simple malware detection for the Macintosh. The second is the ability to scan and remove Blacklisted Tracking Cookies without deleting all of the cookies stored on the computer, thus losing saved usernames or passwords. Both the spyware definition file and the tracking cookie blacklist file are updated frequently and are free.

    As MacScan has evolved over the years its privacy features have grown as well. The internet clutter cleanup feature supports all major web browsers for fast cleaning of web files and surfing history.

    ATTENTION WEBMASTERS: Monitor websites and servers for changes or failures

    “…a feature-rich tool that’s ideal for Webmasters who need to monitor a variety of Internet services.”
    – Matt Vance, Macworld

    Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks servers for changes or failures, and notifies you via e-mail, sound, speech, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important server goes down or recovers. Developed in Cocoa, it is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive interface.

    Simon is very versatile. It can be used to monitor your own website and servers, track your clients’ servers, communicate on arbitrary ports, run custom scripts for monitoring and notifications, and much more.

    “Simon constantly monitors the content of critical pages and shows me the changes that have been made. Quality control is very important to me: usability, reliability, design, that’s what people pay me for! In Simon I also find those qualities — and this feels good to me. … Simon adds another reliable and highly customizable layer of control and feedback! I also appreciate the fast response when contacting Dejal. The developer knows what he’s talking about!”

    - Holger Hubbs, web/print/information design, unimpossible.net

    Central to Simon is the Monitor window. It enables you to see at a glance the current status of all of your monitored websites, servers, and applications. In addition to a colorful status icon and up-time percentage, the tests table displays how long ago the last change and failure occurred, and when the next check will occur. But that’s not all. This window also displays further statistics about the tests, and tables listing recent checks (including the check duration and a bar chart), changes (including the text that changed), failures (including the error description), and notifications (that can occur for changes, failures, and recoveries).

    “I searched high and low for a product to monitor my server, and Simon was the only product that worked flawlessly. Simon is also great at monitoring changes on other sites; handy if you want to be the first to see new content on seldom updated pages.”

    - Gord Lacey, Owner, TVShowsOnDVD.com

    For more information and screenshots, please visit the Dejal Simon website.

    The ZOT price is offered for the ENTERPRISE LICENSE of Simon which retails for $195.00. This allows an unlimited number of tests – perfect for webmasters and professionals. If you have more modest needs, check out the Basic or Standard licenses.

    An interview with Voila Developers

    What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    There are a lot of features unique in Voila in comparison to the other capturing tools on the Mac. We think the best amongst is the ability to have a free hand capture; since this really saves the user a lot of time and allows him to capture just the area he wants.

    Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    Our research diverted us to those users who were looking at a capture tool that would enable them to quickly explain things graphically and amplify it further by adding quick annotations on the Mac platform. Basically they were looking for a SnagIT counterpart on the Mac and we thought we had the potential and the bandwidth to come up with a capture and annotation tool that would surpass all the other capture tools in the market.

    What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform?

    Mac is more about the User Interface and user appeal. Designing the user interface and logos on the Mac is always challenging and in my opinion one of the most interesting aspects as well.

    What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    Some of the features that I think users would love to use in Voila are:
    1. Free Hand Capture
    2. Capture in different shapes
    3. Callouts, Arrows, Lines, Shapes and Sprays from the Tools section
    4. Edges, Skew and Filters from the Effects section.

    What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    Well, there are a lot of these. Making Voila feature rich is our main objective and we have a lot of features lined up for the upcoming releases-the main ones being providing more ‘Share’ options and adding a few new tools. We need your opinion on making Voila compatible with Tiger OS.

    What would you like a user to ask you?

    "Do you have other products for my Mac and iPhone?", would be a good one. Yes, we have Web2 Delight – using which you can download and transfer your favorite videos and photos from internet to your iPods and iPhones. Read more details from our site Global Delight

    What should I ask that I’m forgetting?

    "Do we need Voila on Tiger OS?", would be perfect at this time. We need your opinion on making Voila compatible with Tiger OS. Voice your thoughts for this blog post.
