Applications :: Fastest RSS Reader?

Jan 29, 2009

I have around 10 RSS feeds, and have NewsFire set to update every 5 minutes, and it didn't seem to want to update all the RSS feeds. So I just cut it back to like every 30 minutes, and it still doesn't seem like it updates. Like it'll alert me with one update in about 2 hours, and then when I manually update it, like 20 things pop up!

I checked each site and they are all updating on the same time slot, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Is just 10 RSS feeds too many? That would seem weird to me...

Applications :: Looking For A Mac RSS Reader Like An Offline Google Reader'!

Jun 2, 2010

I just tried NetNewsWire, and Vienna, NNW is nice but Google Reader has a great feature that these both are without.

In GReader, when I mouse over or scroll down it marks that one article as read. No pushing buttons, clicking next, nothing. Just read.

I want to be able to pre-download all of my current unread items, AND the pictures. Gears for GReader does NOT download the pictures. I have a lot of picture only feeds, like lolcats, that I would like to let build up for a week and then on my long plane ride home, check out.

In NNW I can smash the space bar and get this accomplished, but I'd rather just scroll through, or at least have the option to.

I don't really like the look of Vienna, it's too unpolished, NNW is a tad better and has better options for like the prefs.

It would also be interesting to be able to give specific instructions, or adjust certain settings on a per-feed basis. Such as filter out cartain keywords (Without using a service such as feedrinse).

I hat vienna because once I click on a feed, it marks everything as read. That's bad for me as I sometimes just open a mega feed and read one or two items. I have maby 20 or 30 feeds, but usually get 2-300 new items a day. Most are junk like Joystick, but I like to sit down and go through the important ones while im taking a break or eating lol.

I know you can't but it'd be interesting to allow some feeds to auto queue an embedded movie, let me view it offline (or off my VPN.

Applications :: Whats Fastest And Best Video Converter For Mac

Apr 13, 2010

Looking to encode all my video DVDs etc, for my library. I have an Apple TV, PS3, iMac (2Ghz Core 2 Duo) and iPhone. I have been using Handbrake which is great, use the Apple TV preset which plays on all the devices listed I have. However I'm just wondering if there is a paid for, or free program that is faster or better in any respect for converting? I know H264 is CPU intensive, so is Handbrake going to be the best and fastest anyway?

Applications :: Finding RSS Reader Software For The Mac

Aug 28, 2010

I read a lot of blogs for my business for research such as marketing tips, product releases new, etc. I've always tried to figure out the best way to keep up with the multiple sites and either just browse the sites or use services such as Twitter or Email Newsletters I've talked to PC users and many of them suggested using RSS Feeds and I recently got Pulse for both my iPad and iPhone and it's been wonderful. I like the design and how it works but the only problem is a limit of 20 feeds. This covers many of the feeds but not quite all that I want to subscribe to.

What is a good option for using on the Mac? For web browsing I use Firefox, Safari, and Chrome and for email Thunderbird. If I'm correct these offer options for RSS feeds. How do these compare to other feed readers for the Mac. Are web based/cloud versions better? I"ve heard of options such as Google Reader.

Applications :: Ultra Fast PDF Reader?

Oct 2, 2010

I've got a PDF of a large map that's 23MB, 150" x 130". I cut out segments as needed using the select tool in Preview, copying and pasting it to a new document, which I save as a PNG. Not the most elegant solution, but it works. The trouble is, Preview chokes on it. Zooming is slow, and it takes 15 seconds to copy a selection, and another 15 to paste it into a new image. I've made 5 individual maps so far in this session, and Preview is using 1.44GB of RAM. Is there another tool that would be faster for cutting up a large PDF? It has to stay a PDF in the large form, because it has searchable text I use to find the region needed.

Applications :: Where To Download Adobe Reader 7.0

Oct 25, 2007

A family member of mine needs Adobe Reader 7 (because they have an old iMac that can't be upgraded to Tiger) and I can't find it anywhere, not on the Adobe site or [URL}. Does anyone know where I can get it?

(PS- the reason they need it is because Preview somehow got deleted and they don't have the OS X install disks.)

Applications :: QR Code Reader For Mac OS X That Utilizes ISight

Apr 15, 2009

I've been using Optiscan as a QR Code Reader on my iPhone. I'm looking for essentially the same type of program, except it will be on my MacBook Pro (or any other Mac desktop/notebook) that uses an iSight Camera. There are programs that generate QR Codes, but I am looking for one that does specifically reading. It can do both, or any combination, but the reading must be included. I preliminary Google search brings me close, a lot of possibilities (mostly in Japanese, which i do not read). But ultimately I have found nothing. I was hoping someone could direct me towards program.
