Apple’s Productivity Shortcomings (And How to Get Around Them)

So by the title, you might think I’m not a fan of Macs. You’d be wrong. I converted from a PC over two years ago and have been glad every day that I did so. Macs do *almost* everything better, and without the headaches of PCs. And the fact that you can go into an Apple retail store and get all kinds of help, most of it free, just seems to make using a Mac a no-brainer. But notice I did say that Macs do almost everything better. The one thing that is harder using Mac-native tools is personal productivity. And being that this is my profession, that’s a bit of a big deal for me.  Please read the rest of this post at the new home of this blog, here.  Thanks for visiting!




  1. You need to try Daylite,

    Your going to love it!!! Works for Mac only. I was getting desperate trying to find something and I just switch to it a few months ago and couldn’t be happier, it has a little bit of a learning curve but it’s very powerful and it syncs with your iphone.
    I believe there’s nothing out there as good as this (even for PC’s).
