Time Capsule ready to ship
In brief: MacNN has reviewed PDF2Office Professional, Daylite Productivity Suite, and a look back at Macworld part 2. Pre-orders of Apple's Time Capsule external storage device are "prepared for shipment," Quark has launched a community-based website for designers, Arizona's home listings are set to appear on Apple's iTunes Music Store & Homebuyer's iPods, and IK Multimedia is offering a two-for-one deal on qualifying IK plug-ins.
MacNN has reviewed PDF2Office Professional by Recosoft, a PDF document conversion and data extraction tool. The software converts PDF documents into fully editable Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, RTF, AppleWorks, HTML, and other files by recreating the original construction and layout of the document. PDF2Office automatically forms paragraphs; applies styles; regroups independent graphics elements; extracts images; creates tables; and processes headers/footers as well as endnotes/footnotes and columns/sections.
MacNN has also reviewed Daylite Productivity Suite by MarketCircle (icon shown at right), an application designed to help businesses stay on track and deliver on time. The software provides shared calendars, manages projects, offers contact management, and includes email integration.
MacNN posted yet another review, taking "A Look Back at Macworld Part 2." The review continues with a look at applications that users may want to investigate further, as chosen by news editor Galen Wood among the top contenders for the best small business applications.
