Review, facefarm on iPhone
In brief: MacNN has reviewed Macware FontLibrary, facefarm.com has announced iPhone compatibility for its free face matching service, and Aleratec has introduced its new DVD/CD Disc Repair system. Matterform Media has closed its technical support until further notice, and Belltech Systems has released a beta version of its Web-based diagramming application. MacNN has reviewed FontLibrary from Macware ($60), a collection of 100 font families that comes with a license to use the fonts on five different Macs with ability to print all of the fonts. The collection comes with a font manager that both installs and organizes the fonts, which contain True Type and OpenType styles.
Faceform comes to iPhone
Facefarm.com has announced iPhone compatibility for its free face matching service. The service allows users to upload their faces, after which all contacts automatically receive them without the need to manually download or update files. Subscribers receive free software that automatically updates the contacts in Address Book as well as on a compatible cellular phone with new faces whenever they are available.
Aleratec debuts DVD/CD Disc Repair system
Aleratec has unveiled its new DVD/CD Disc Repair CG that removes most light, medium, or heavy scratch damage from any media DVD or CD. The company says the "commercial grade" disc repair system handles most damaged discs in as little as five minutes, and includes two 500ml bottles of finishing solution as well as repair pads and a 3 1/2-inch disc holder. The system is priced at $525, with refill kits available for $200.
Matterform Media has informed customers that, due to a serious family hardship, the company is unable to provide technical support for its products; the firm is offering a 30-day money back guarantee on all software license purchases, however, to compensate for the lack of support.... Belltech Systems has released DrawAnywhere.com 0.9 Beta, a Web-based diagramming application designed to help users draw professional quality Flow Charts, Process diagrams, and more.
