Google Domains Invitation

August 19, 2014

I requested an invite to Google Domains back on June 25, 2014. Just earlier today I received the invite code.

The first thing I would do is transferring a domain name that I procured through Google Apps some years ago. It was registered through Godaddy, as it was the only available option.

Apple seeds OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 Build 14A329f to developers.

OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 1.0 Build 14A329f

Most of the known bugs from the previous builds have been addressed. It has been stable enough to be used as the main OS on my MacBook Pro.

Random Pick: iTransfer Pro

iTransfer Pro

I often need to upload files from my iPhone or iPad directly to the web server. I have been using iTransfer (ad-supported version) for quite some times. I purchased iTransfer Pro considering how much I have been using the free/ad-supported version; the $3.99 price tag is worth it. iTransfer Pro is both iPhone and iPad optimized.

iTransfer Pro supports:

  • FTP/FTPS/SFTP
  • Network Drives
  • Dropbox
  • Box
  • SkyDrive
  • GoogleDrive

Compact Flash card slot; check!

SD card slot; check!

xD card slot; check!

SmartMedia card slot ……. (Does anyone remember that?); check!

USB port; check!

CD/DVD slot; check!

Um, Isn’t it the “Save File” symbol?

None of the photos I took using my current cameras at theirs native resolutions can fit in a Floppy disk anymore.

Amazon Local Register Secure Card Reader

August 15, 2014

I received the Amazon Local Register Secure Card Reader late Friday, August 15, 2014. The iPhone app for Amazon Local Register still needs a lot of work; it is sluggish and awkward to use. Amazon will definitely fix these issues.

Amazon loves using all cardboard packaging for its own products; environmentally friendly I supposed.

Amazon and Square Card Reader

Amazon’s card reader is much larger than its Square counterpart. I find it slightly difficult to install on an iPhone 5s with the case from Apple.
