Leopard's Disk Utility will create AES-256 disk images.

Considering that AES-128 is regarded by the NSA as good for 'Secret' or lower data, is currently uncrackable, and AES-256 is much more than twice as hard to crack - well, this is probably sufficient for most people ;)

1.5 adds backup features, and full volume vaults. This last feature works really well - the volume mounts just like any other on your Mac, even though what's really going on is that it's a sparse image on the disk (I think !).

In any case, this goes some way towards answering the criticism that most of these features are in the OS already - Sure, but Knox makes using them easy.

Whatever - I got Knox in a bundle with PathFinder, so I'm happy :) !

Some people seem to have a problem with this developer - not me. I find his software elegant and intuitive, and XTorrent is no different.

It's got to be the fastest way to download stuff you want - open Xtorrent, start to type what you're looking for (it auto-completes/guesses what you're saying), and there are your torrents, easily identified by quality.

If you download TV shows weekly like me, Xtorrent is a must as it has support for torrent RSS feeds.

The best just keeps getting better. Try dragging the tabs in the preview window - it's just so slick it's sick !

Wow - $200 ? Aperture has way more features and power, and only costs an extra $100.

I might have bought this at $100 - but they've overpriced it.

First impressions were not great - the interface is very modal, I wasn't able to drag and drop images out of iPhoto (you have to use the Load command, which is not even in the File menu), the preview loupe is just a blurred enlargement, you can't manually arrange the images - you're just left at the mercy of the automatic alignment.


The results are astounding ! I threw some of my most difficult panorama source images at it and it produced output that's better than I currently have (made with the excellent DoubleTake). You don't need to manually adjust anything, it just works. It takes quite a long time to work it's magic, but I suppose that's because it's doing quite in-depth analysis.

It's a bit unstable (still beta though), and the interface is not Mac like enough - but I would still consider buying this because the results are so good.

I have a 2K Quicktime movie that does this. (

Although Locomotive is an excellent, on-click way to get a working Rails system on your Mac, I just found that mine was eating up over 600Mb of real memory, and over 3.5Gb of VM ! There must be a memory leak in one of the components somewhere, so beware.

Please don't post Windows UI screenshots here. Argh, my eyes !
