There are a couple of things you can be sure about with Christmas: you've procrastinated from buying for too long to get a good card, but that's okay -- there are no good cards anyway. Certainly, none that say precisely what you want. We're British, so we secretly long for a range of cards with messages like "Happy Holidays to an entirely adequate uncle" and we've always been disappointed. Until now -- while Cardsmith 1.0.1 is really meant for less curmudgeonly people than we seem to be today, it still helps you create personalized cards for any occasion. It just happens that there's a big one coming.
This is a world premiere: One More Thing becomes the first-ever MacNN podcast to do a live link-up via satellite to another podcast. Oh, yes. It's possibly not worth all the effort and the transatlantic cost but we've done it now. We're joking, obviously. Otherwise, we have about a pixel's worth of information to say about the PC Does What? adverts, we have a lot to say about Apple TV and we bluff about how expert we are on fashion. It's relevant!
It's been available for a few weeks now, but today we used Apple Pay on the Tube, London's Underground train network. We did it using our Apple Watches, and we will never do it any other way again. Well, not until the next previously-unimaginable technology comes along. For now, though, that's it: try it once, and never go back. It is as simple and as obvious as that.
The first time you use this feature of Evernote for iOS, you will go "wow!". Unfortunately, before you finish using it for the first time, you will also go "oh." For Evernote is practically magical in how it will scan a business card, and cull every last detail off it -- and then it's surprisingly bad at what it does with that information.

A-DATA technologies has introduced the 'Turbo Series CF 350X', touted as the world's fastest CompactFlash card. Aimed at professional photographers and digital imaging professionals, the card offers peak 52MB/sec read and 47MB/sec write speeds, and comes in both 8GB and 16GB sizes. The card's speedy transfer rates are made possibly by utilizing the dual-channel UDMA 0-5 and MDMA 0-4 modes of high level digital cameras and only ussing original SLC (single level cell) flash memory. Priced at $80 for the 8GB card, and $210 for the 16GB version, both are shipping immediately.
A Sprint employee has allegedly posted an internal memo on SprintUsers citing that the telecommunications giant is imposing a 5GB bandwidth limit on transfer, or 300MB per month in off-network roaming. According to the employee, the limits would see service on July 13th, and would apply to both PAM and data card plans. The note seems to indicate that Vision and PowerVision packages would still retain their respective limits, unsusceptible to the 5GB limit.
The long-awaited NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT upgrade for Mac Pros has been released. The graphics card features 512MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory, uses the PCI Express interface, and includes two dual-link DVI ports, and is capable of driving up to two 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays. It requires a Mac Pro (bus speed 1.33GHz) with PCI-Express. The card is priced at $280 and can be purchased as a standalone, user-installable item or as a build-to-order option for Early 2008 Mac Pros through the online Apple Store. Controversy ensued when Apple introduced this upgrade card as an option available exclusively to newly purchased Mac Pros in January. At the time, users presented research that shows the cards should be backwards compatible. Apple is now making the kit available, in supported fashion, to all Mac Pros with a bus speed for at least 1.33GHz.
