Note Taker HD App for Doodlers

I love to doodle and when I discovered this app, I was in Heaven!

Obviously there are more ways to use this productivity app like actually taking notes in a meeting or at school. (At least that’s what you should keep telling yourself and your boss.)  It works great with PDF files and is cheap by comparison to other similar apps.

Go draw me something nice would ya?

Keep Your Mac Healthy With Disk Doctor App

Recently I purchased a refurbished 2012 Mac Mini from Apple. I maxed out the memory (you can do that with the older ones…) to 16GB and connected it to my favorite monitor. I thought it would fly, but alas after updating to the latest Yosemite OS it was slower than expected.

That’s when I called the doctor.

Disk Doctor is a cheap, useful utility that works to keep your Mac happy and healthy.  Mainly it’s useful for managing hard drive disk space, and recovering space lost to garbage files we all accumulate.  Well worth the price of a latte, and it lasts longer.

Launched this week after a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Mohu Channels offers up something that hasn’t previously been available. The small device takes your over air TV channels obtained by an over air HDTV antenna (my preference is the Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna or Curve 50 Designer HDTV Antenna at my location), your streaming media subscriptions (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon, Sling TV, Prime Instant Video), and any webpages (Google, Amazon, GoMohu, etc…), and puts them into an onscreen menu as seen with satellite and cable services.


Be set FREE with FREE HDTV - Save $1,200 per year! Click to buy a Mohu antenna!


There’s no subscription fee for this all-in-one channel guide. Once you buy the device, you’re set!


Mohu Channels and it can be connected to any TV that has an HDMI port. In addition, there’s a USB 2.0 port on the device that allows you to add an external USB drive (flash drive or larger) to store apps and media.


Currently available only on the Mohu website, Mohu Channels is $149.99 – a one time purchase for this great cord cutting tool! Watch for my video review of it very soon.

Cut the cord on cable and dish bills with the Mohu HDTV antenna!

Sling TV Deals with 3 Month Subscription

The Sling TV app for Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick became available today, and with that launch, so did the Sling TV deals for Roku and Amazon streaming devices.

On the Amazon site the hottest deals are the Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick, and the Sling TV app.

A link on each product’s page allows Amazon shoppers to go to the Sling site to purchase a 3 month subscription to Sling TV service; prepaying for the service, which unfortunately is not refundable if you don’t like it.

Once you pay for your subscription after setting up a Sling TV account, you get a unique Amazon code to use on the Amazon site at checkout. If you put an Amazon Fire TV Stick in your cart and enter your code, you get the Fire TV Stick for FREE!

You also have the option to get the Amazon Fire TV at 50% Off with the same promo code, but you can’t buy more than one device.

Fire TV deals

Soon after Amazon’s Sling TV deals showed up this morning, Roku got into the game. Roku offered similar deals on the Sling TV site, but not on their own website at the time of this writing.

Roku Deals at Sling

Links to both the deals pictured can be found at the bottom of the Sling website’s homepage. You can also find links to the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick deals on the Amazon website.

Sling TV Deals

After using Sling TV apps on both my Amazon Fire TV Stick and Roku 3 today, I can say I’m impressed with the service.

While the channels aren’t all my favorites (I’d love to see Bravo and FX join the mix) and it would be fantastic if at some point we could choose our own channels individually – say a basic package with a choice of 10 channels from say 100 basic offerings – it’s still a nice package for live TV that’s not obtained via an over-the-air HDTV antenna.

Cord cutting affords you the freedom of choice. Today, I choose Sling TV with a Mohu HDTV antenna, and I’m happy and saving money. I may change my mind, but the beauty of it is that I’m not locked into a contract, so I can.

Sling TV deals will continue and the service will evolve.

How exciting is that?
