Ipad and mac are brands of Apple

GIS Kit, finally something good for the iPad

Finally I see a really attractive application for iPad oriented to the capture of GIS data in field. The tool has potential for many things, and leaves in diapers other applications I’ve tried like GaiaGPS, GIS4Mobile, ArcGIS for iPad and GISRoam; the latter is powerful but unfriendly to work and more focused on the analysis

PC Magazine, moving to the digital version

It has been long time the English version of this magazine had made his retirement, and although announced it in the Spanish version, supermarkets sideboards continued showing copies. Finally, after a couple of months of asking I have come to accept that Televisa finally had stopped production in printed format and I feel that in

Blogsy for Blogs from an IPad

It seems that I finally found an acceptable application for IPad that allows writing a blog without much suffering. Until now I had been trying BlogPress and official WordPress, but I think that Blogsy is the chosen one as more or less friendly WYSIWYG editing. While I must solve the service with images hosted in

Gaia GPS, for capturing routes with GPS, Ipad and mobiles

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. I’ve downloaded an application for the iPad that has left me more than satisfied in my need to do GPS tracking and then view it online or with Google Earth. Gaia GPS is an application that costs just $ 12 but is very

Ares, a CAD alternative for Linux and Mac

There haven’t been many aided design solutions that go beyond Windows. ArchiCAD had been rather lonely on the Mac, AutoCAD now has decided to enter this market, and Ares is another interesting alternative. Its name does not sound us like AutoCAD, with the shadow made by that P2P downloadable program and what remind us the

How to capture iPad’s screen

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. We live in times of fast-foods, everything is on the way, modular, scalable and with relative relevance. So much, that we learn things at flight. After nearly six months of using the Ipad, it occurred to me how I could make what on

The other side of the iPad

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. A family afternoon, there’s nothing like this for liberating pressures. I wanted to make this post to keep balance with my daughter’s pictures with the Ipad, or they will fight for it. This is sky’s other side, the best photos I have taken

AutoCAD WS, the best of AutoDesk for web

AutoCAD WS is the name with which landed the Butterfly Project, that after AutoDesk’s many attempts wanting to interact with the Web, ended in the acquire of the Sequoia-Backed Israeli Company, who had been working PlanPlatform to interact with DXF / DWG files through the web. It is one of the most promising applications of

Ipad, my 27 favorite applications

Playing, playing with this tablet I proposed to stop using the laptop at the beginning of next year. My uncertainty whether it will really be possible led me to search the basic tools that will replace what I do – and don’t do – in my routine. It is just interesting Apple’s operating model with

AutoCAD returns to Mac

There is no doubt that the Mac’s world is better, but our doubts for moving were always: and what do I do with AutoCAD? Who would have believed it, when, after 1994 AutoCAD R13c42b was the last version we saw half running on PowerMacintosh. 18 years later AutoCAD returns for Mac. Just this year it

Zagg, the best complement for the Ipad

One of the main problems of adapting to an iPad is the keyboard. There will be those who become accustomed, but after a month I came concluding that these reasons prevent me: On one side my fingers are too fat and operate the keyboard results complicated. 25 years later I value my typing course as

Read these, while I return

I’m traveling, reviewing reports and planning my vacation. I leave you with Future X, the character created by my son; it was done with a 3D program for children which sound like Plopp… $ 19 worth when you have a creative child. By the way, I recommend a couple of interesting reading. Does it apply

Best of 2008 Technologies

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Checking PC Magazine, I find an article that lists the best 100 products of 2008. Right now that Pizza Hut in this town has wireless, here I leave the summary. Now they are sorted by category, although it must be admitted that it
