Review: Dodocase for iPad 2

P5293756-640x480

The first accessory every iPad 2 owner buys is one of Apple’s Smart Covers. But as elegant as the Smart Covers are, they do not offer much in the way of protection – my iPad already has a number of alarmingly deep scratches on the back from being in my bag with my keys and camera.

But the size …

Review: Things – a stylish task management app for OS X

Things, a task-management application for OS X, debuted this year at Macworld after a lengthy public beta. Despite being Cultured Code‘s first foray into the world of task management apps, Things is an extremely polished, attractive app – but does it actually make you more productive? UI & Design Cultured Code really nailed the visual presentation of Things: The UI is very “mac-like” and looks very nice. Features are easy to discover and UI elements are easily identified. The list view Things uses to display your tasks feels as though …
