Corkboard for your clipboard

Corkboard is your clipboard’s buddy

BD25D282-ABD0-4F98-99FF-47576822A27F.jpgSometimes Command-C and Command-V just aren’t enough. You’re working on a project and want to capture a bunch of text, pictures, or code, and then paste it into the project you’re working on. Using the Mac clipboard, you’re toggling between open applications, cutting and pasting like there’s no tomorrow. Wouldn’t it be nice to capture all of that information into one place, then pull it out when you’re ready to use it?

Corkboard (from Ayluro) does exactly this — you press a hot key or click a menu bar icon, and a transparent “corkboard” appears. You can either paste or drag-and-drop items onto the corkboard, then hide it. If your machine crashes, or if you need to restart it, no problem — the items that you’ve pinned to the corkboard are there. When you’re ready to use those items (text, sound, pictures, etc..), just open Corkboard and drag them into the receiving app.

Corkboard accepts many types of media, and Ayluro has created a framework so other applications can work seamlessly with Corkboard. It’s currently a time-limited beta (download here) with an introductory price of $12.99. Developer Jonathan Grynspan expects the app to leave beta in early 2009. Give it a try!

MacBook Air SuperDrive super hack makes it work with any computer

MacBook Air SuperDrive super hack makes it work with any computer

513F4977-5EE4-4034-AEF7-903DD9EE0777.jpg

As tnkgrl mentions at the outset of this hack, the MacBook Air SuperDrive is a nice little slice of hotness, retailing for a mere $99, and doing the whole external drive thing with Apple’s sense of style. Unfortunately, it only works with the MacBook Air due to a proprietary IDE to USB bridge, as tnkgrl discovered. For a mere $9 she was able to find a replacement part, and after pushing some internals around she had her slef a Mac mini and HP Mini-Note-friendly USB disc drive. We’ve all been laboring under the assumption that Apple needed more than the standard USB power draw, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that she was able to pull this off with a regular part, and we demand Apple start selling $108 SuperDrives-for-all immediately. Er, please?
