Still writing addresses for your mailings by hand? It’s time-taking, inaccurate and not professional. And it can turn a nightmare if your mailing list is large. We know a better way.

Mail Factory is an office tool for designing and printing envelopes, postcards, address and shipping labels on your Macintosh. It’s flexible, intuitive, comes with ready-made designs, and gracefully automates correspondence.

Mail Factory Home Edition is specially designed for home users. It is great for small quantities of letters and what is more important that it saves you money on those advanced features, which you may never need. It doesn’t feature mail merge functionality and supports less address sources. But if these are critical for you, you can always upgrade to the full version at developer’s site.

Mail Factory Home Edition helps to:

  • Send a greeting to your friends and relatives.
  • Design special event postcards.
  • Decorate your mailings with a special look.
  • Prepare party invitations.
  • Avoid that chicken scratch you call your handwriting.
  • Don’t waste envelopes anymore when preparing your correspondence.

That’s all, you’ll be entered to win a copy of MemoryMiner. Even if you purchase it, you’re still eligible to win.

Winner of a Macworld 2006 Best of Show award, MemoryMiner is a Digital Storytelling application that is a fantastic compliment to the iLife suite. It lets you zero in on the stories depicted in your photos by linking them to each other based on people, places and time. Using simple drag and drop actions, you specify who is in the picture, where the picture was taken and when. You can then browse through your photo collections using a visual search filter which lets you filter by specific periods in a persons life, where people over lap, by places, or by time. MemoryMiner Best of Show

Memory Miner

MemoryMiner helps you get the most out of every effort you put into creating your libraries. For example, using portions or a full address or city/country, the application downloads maps from the web, and plots the location of a person’s photos on a world map. It uses the intersection of a photo’s date and the birth date of a person to create icons representing people at different stages of their life. It uses the selection markers you make to display your photos as slideshows using the famous “Ken Burns” pan and zoom effect.

Drag and drop audio, video, documents, or URLs from the Media Browser onto your photos and add text annotations to add depth and context to each photo. In this way, you get the very most out of your photos, particularly those rare photos from a generation or two ago.

You can then automatically publish your stories to the web (via .Mac or FTP): MemoryMiner create a gorgeous interactive presentation using HTML and Flash.

Click to download BlogAssist

BlogAssist helps weblog and website editing by making HTML markup easier. It adds a menu to the right-hand side of the menu bar that contains a list of operations that can be performed on text.

There are two handy ways to use it. You can simply select and copy some text into the clipboard, choose a suitable operation from the menu, then paste the result in the desired location. The text will have been transformed like magic. For example, copying hey and choosing Bold will result in <b>hey</b> – the HTML tags for boldface text, wrapped around the original text.

Alternatively, show the floating BlogAssist window (new in version 2) and drag text to one or both of the Values fields, choose an operation from the included pop-up menu, then drag the formatted HTML from the Result field. This window includes a convenient preview of how the HTML will be rendered in a web page.

[Floating window]

BlogAssist comes with several useful operations, including web and e-mail links, bold/italics/strikethrough/etc, LiveJournal tags, and more. But you aren’t limited to those – you can easily add, change, or remove them as desired.
