A Better Finder Rename

We know that Finder is a necessity for every Mac user.  But have you ever wished that you had a better finder rename feature on your Mac, that would actually save you time, and help you in your quest for organization?  I have good news for you:

This app is a great option and most complete renaming solution for Finder.  It’s very easy to use, following the drag and drop method, and is a very friendly interface.  Now there are no excuses for you to start organizing your files, photos and MP3 files with their proper names.

This is an application that every Mac user should have and if you have a large number of pictures or music files, this application is a must for your own good.  It will be the best $19.99  that you ever spend on your computer!

Customize Your Mac Mug for Mac PowerPC

I know this post has nothing to do with applications or set up but I found some info on the internet and I really think it’s a cool idea that I wanted to share with my readers.

This could be a perfect weekend project with the family, just to get together, or could also be a very nice and personal gift for someone you like!

On this blog we always look for the cheap/cheapest way to do a task and I admit that sometimes the word cheap sounds pejorative but honestly we need to get over it.  Who doesn’t like a deal???

All you need is a ceramic mug (I found my on dollar store for $1.25) and a Sharpie pen (or other permanent marker).

  • Now you have to channel your inner artist and draw something on the mug.  I tried a few of the apple software logos and ended up using the “Finder” logo.  Once you’re satisfied with the drawing, you put your mug in the oven at 350º for 30 minutes.

And after 30 minutes you remove the mug and let it rest until it gets cold and is ready for you to use for your beverage of choice.

  • Warning:  It won’t last forever.  We recommend hand wash only.  Do not put in the dishwasher.

Now it’s time for all of you to take this project and make it PowerPC friendly!  Send me any photos of your customized mugs and we will try to make an art galley of those inspired by mac!
