Meanwhile, Flying Mac has announced that FarFinder and WebJimbo, their Macintosh remote access products are now on sale. Electronista has reviewed the Able Planet Sound Clarity Wireless Headphones, favoring the comfort of wearing these headphones but found that when moving out of the signals "sweet spot" a hiss was introduced.
The Everything Bundle includes activation codes for all of Limit Point Software's products including, Mailings, Blue Crab, iForm and FTPortal for $69. Buying all of the applications separately would cost around $285 meaning customers are getting everything at a 76% discount. The promotion will run until the end of December.

Flying Mac is offering a $10 discount on both FarFinder and Webjimbo. FarFinder is on sale for $25 and is a tool for accessing a Mac's files from anywhere on the internet through the use of a web browser. Webjimbo is on sale for $20 and allows users to access, search and edit their Yojimbo data from any web browser or an iPhone/iPod touch.
Electronisa's review of the Able Planet Sound Clarity Wireless Headphones gave the accessory a four out of five stars, pointing out that the headphones are comfortable to wear, have support for two separate audio sources and comes with a nice carrying case. On the con side it was found that the audio could become hissy when the user wasn't in the wireless sweet spot.
