Calibre is what iBooks for Mac should have used for a starting point. The developer of Calibre is to be commended for essentially creating the Swiss Army Tool of eBooks and now documents as well. Kudos to all the hard work!

I think the only quibble I have is that Calibre looks rather dated. Deep inside where it counts, it is sleek and fast. It can handle anything I throw at it, but I can't help but wince slightly at its appearance.

Please, please, please let shallow folks like myself have our cake and eat it too -- please update the look of Calibre or give idiots like myself simple options to skin it.

It is incredible software and with the way Apple has managed to drop the ball everywhere with iBooks for Mac, I think Calibre has a very long, bright future.

I've been using MPEG Streamclip since I purchased my TiVo just before Christmas and it has been part of my workflow to work with documentaries off cable television. I use KMTTG to decrypt the television shows into MPEG files and then I used MPEG Streamclip to edit out the commercials. It wasn't always the most precise editor but for freeware with the flexibility that it has, who can really complain? However, it suddenly stopped working about a month ago. I can still open up MPEG files from my TiVo in it, but the video window is blank while the audio plays fine. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could try or do?
