Ubercaster; GarageBand

In brief: Ubercaster gets a final release date, tutorials introduce podcasting with GarageBand, a website converts work documents, and MacSpeech announces a TopXNotes bundle. While the Ubercaster beta is still active, ERS has already decided on an April 4th date for the retail program. In the time remaining before the end of the beta, users will be able to pre-order a license key for $10 off the $80 regular price. Ubercaster is designed to streamline the podcasting process, including tools for preparing, recording, editing and distributing a show. The program requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 and will run on both Intel and PowerPC platforms.

Creating podcasts with GarageBand

macProVideo.com is selling a new video tutorial, "GarageBand 103: Podcasting in GarageBand." The product guides users through necessary steps, such as recording and editing, but then extends to concepts such as DSP processing and using images and URLs. Also present are sections on publishing through iTunes or iWeb, and conducting interviews through Skype. Using a coupon code cuts 10 percent off the video's $30 price.

File conversion website expands

Advanced Computer Innovations is expanding its Instant Online File Conversion Service to support Microsoft Office 2003 XML documents, among several other new types. The ACI website promises to convert numerous graphic, text, database and spreadsheet files, many of which may be in obscure or outdated formats, such as Navy DIF or Samna Word Plus. Should strict conversion not work, ACI can still attempt to extract material into a generic text file. The cost for the service is $10 per megabyte, plus another $1 per file, with a mininum order price of $9.

MacSpeech promotes TopXNotes bundle

Running through to March 22nd, visitors to the MacSpeech website can receive a discount on a bundle of Tropical's TopXNotes or TopXNotes iPod along with ScriptPak for TopXNotes. By using the coupon code "TOPXNOTES," the combined software is $20 off the regular cost. TopXNotes helps organize and display notes, and with the right version, synchronize with an iPod; ScriptPak adds voice control by installing scripts and macros into iListen 1.7 or later.
