Advanced VoIP: Making and Receiving Landline Calls on a Mac

In the last article on VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) I looked at how easy it is to set up a normal “land-line” telephone number using a SIP provider together with a fantastic, lightweight app—Telephone—from the Mac App Store.

In this article, I’ll examine the Telephone app. I’ll cover how to customise it, how to improve the quality of calls, how to assert a different geographic presence and how to reduce telephony costs.

Back to the Mac Podcast, Episode 10

This podcast was a collaboration with Dr Richard Harkness. It was the tenth podcast that I recorded and edited for publication by Alex Arena.

Back to the Mac, or BTTM, ran for a total of 26 episodes, most of which have been lost to internet history. It was good fun whilst it lasted and we had an average five-star review from seven listeners. I’m not sure how many more we reached.

I rescued this episode from an old, portable hard drive.

Wunderlist 2: Get Things Done

This article first appeared on iPhone.Appstorm, a popular Envato website reviewing iPhone apps. The site was subsequently sold to a new owner and, a number of years later, the article was lost. I have republished it here for reference.

It seems almost impossible to believe that just three years ago we didn’t synchronise much data between devices. Until recently, most people used just one computer to do everything. Ok, maybe two: home and work, but the fact remains that syncing data normally involved a physical device such as a USB drive.

Of course, Apple users had MobileMe to synchronise contacts and calendars between their Mac and iPhone, but this was before Apple’s Reminders app existed. Despite a whole App Store packed with countless task managers, none allowed the wireless syncing of data until 6Wunderkinder shook things up with Wunderlist and its cloud syncing across different devices. Now they’re back with Wunderlist 2 on the iPhone, but the landscape has changed, so how does it stack up?
