BlogZot returns!

MacZOT's previous blog-based marketing experiment was a success, so today they launched a second one, BLOGZOT 2.0 on MacZOT.com, centered around SubEthaEdit from CodingMonkeys. MacZOT and TheCodingMonkeys will award $105,000 in Mac software depending on the number of bloggers who link to the promotion, earning a free copy of the app in the process. I've used SubEthaEdit before and its handy in multi-user development environments, but it can also be used as a text editor, although I won't be giving up BBEdit any time soon.

Anyhow, we'll see how the promotion works out this time. Best of luck to the TheCodingMonkeys and MacZOT teams!

Found this neat little uninstaller app today: AppZapper. Additionally, they're engaging in a cool viral marketing strategy whereby the app is available on macZOT! and may eventually be free if enough bloggers link to it. I applaud this creative approach and hope the developers reach their goal.

Upcoming BARTsmart Features

The next version of the BARTsmart BART Widget is under development. The next release, slated as version 1.0, should include the most requested features: bike indicators and Fares.

Also, while I expect that the widget operates fine on Intel-based Macs like the MacBook Pro, I haven't tested it in this environment yet. Version 1.0 will be fully certified and tested for use on Intel Macs.

If there's another feature you'd like to see, drop me a line or leave a comment here.

MacBook Pro Performance Analysis

At Macworld Apple released new Intel-based desktops and laptops, the new iMac and MacBook Pro systems. Since these systems are quite different than their predecessors I set out to guage their performance by performing a number of performance tests. I've posted my results online here: MacBook Pro Performance Analysis.

Also, the story is on Digg. You can help me make the front page!

Macworld '06

I'm heading to Macworld, which is pretty easy as it is right in San Francisco... just a brief jaunt up Mission St. to Moscone Center. If you're heading to Macworld be sure to take BART and download my BARTsmart BART Widget!

Happy Holidays!

I'm taking a vacation so no new BARTsmart development will happen for a while. However, I'll still post news articles as stories develop. See you in 2006!
