How many times have you said to yourself, "I REALLY should backup my files"?

Put this worry to rest quickly and painlessly with SmartBackup!

“Extremely simple, surprisingly powerful”
Matt Witmer –

SmartBackup – Spotlight Powered Backup

Quickly and efficiently perform lightweight backups of your personal files. Speed is primary since you are only backing up files that you have added to your system, and not ones that came with your Mac OSX install DVD.

Supports Lots of Hard Drives

SmartBackup supports backing up to any kind of hard disk, partitions or network sharepoints. It works with your iPod, USB drives, iDisk, AFP, NFS, SMB, WebDAV.

Make Your Own Backup Rules with Spotlight

Files found during a Spotlight search can be backed up or excluded.

Then just tell SmartBackup exactly what you want to backup. You make the rules!

“Backup all files changed during the last week."

"Backup purchased music only out of the iTunes library."

"Exclude all files with a red label.”


Keep Your Backup Clean  with Smart Archiving

SmartBackup lets you archive deleted or changed files in a time-stamped way. That way the backup stays clean and changed or deleted files are neatly kept in an archive where they are stored sorted by date and time of their removal.

Pro Flexibility: Headless Mode

Unix tasks are easy, like running backups via ssh or cron. SmartBackup even allows you run backups from the command line.

Easy Automation with iCal or Automator

Backing up is simple and can be automatic – you don’t even need to remember to do it. Put SmartBackup on autopilot and launch it using iCal. If more sophisticated tasks are required, like mounting sharepoints before backup, you can include SmartBackup easily in Automator workflows using the included Automator Action.

Ready for Leopard and Intel Macs!

SmartBackup is a “universal binary” that runs natively on PPC and Intel based Macs. SmartBackup supports MacOSX 10.5 Leopard.

System Requirements:

  • - Intel or PPC Mac-

    Normally: $34.95

    ZOT Price: $17.48

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Imagine reading a year’s worth of your favorite blog at 35,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean – on your way to Hawaii!

    Web Devil is a tool for downloading web sites for offline browsing, extracting web site content, helping to maintain web sites for content authors, and more. It also has filtering capabilities, so it only downloads what you want, and has a simple to use interface. Just enter a URL and it downloads the content with a single click. It contains several powerful tools for downloading and processing web content with ease, including an URL and e-mail extractor, batch URL downloader, incremental downloader, and more.

    On a plane trip to your favorite destination, Hawaii perhaps, you have plenty of time to catch up on your reading, but NO INTERNET. Fortunately, you won’t need a connection, if you pick up today’s application – Web Devil 6.5.

    With Web Devil 6.5 you can download any website to your computer and read it while you are offline. You are offline once in a while, aren’t you?

    Okay, maybe you aren’t, or you don’t expet to be. BUT, whether it’s because you are on an airplane zooming along at 35,000 above the Pacific Ocean or whether you have lost your connection due to bad weather, technical difficulties, etc. there are sometimes when you will find yourself living your life offline.

    Yes, hard to believe that you might find yourself without a connection, but it does happen. In fact, it happened to me while on vacation in Canada just a few weeks ago. No connection in my condo!! I could hardly believe it.

    How about if you just asked yourself this question: “How would I use Web Devil, anyway?”

    Well you could download it right now and find out. Go ahead, click the Try button at the top and it will begin downloading directly to your computer, and you’ll be up and running in less than 3 minutes. Or read on…

    Or maybe you’d download a website that you just never find the time to look at while you are at work, but which you’d have lots of time to read on the subway during your commute home.

    You know, you could even download some select pages from so you would have your thanksgiving recipes all ready to go when you get to your grandma’s house (who doesn’t have DSL, yet). Just pop open your laptop at the kitchen counter, and voila, you are ready to get cooking.

    I bet you could find all kinds of cool ways to utilize Web Devil, but I’ll leave that up to you.

    And just so you know how really versatile this application is, I’ll tell you about a few more features which make this application really useful…

    • Clean User interface – Simple, intuitive user interface makes using Web Devil pure pleasure.
    • Customized download options- Use filters so you download only the parts of a website you want.
    • Incremental Downloader- A handy tool for downloading sequential URLs on the same site. For example, if you had URLs on a remote server which were all the same except for a single number, you can use this tool to get them all in one easy stroke.
    • Media Viewer & Sorter – View and sort your freshly downloaded media files right in Web Devil!

    It doesn’t get much simpler than this folks. Just enter a URL and Web Devil downloads the content with a single click. Really, it is pretty cool! But I don’t need to convince you, download it and try it out for yourself. You have until midnight Pacific time to decide if it is worth the amazing ZOT price of $17.48.

    Web Devil requires Mac OS X, version 10.3.9 or later. PowerPC and Intel based Macintosh computers are supported.

    Web Devil 6.5 changes (since 6.4)

    AceReader Pro – Speed Reading Software

    Normally: $49.95

    ZOT Price: $24.98

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    AceReader Pro is a must for anybody who is serious about improving both their reading speed and their comprehension.

    In today’s fast-paced information age, it is more important than ever to be a proficient reader. AceReader will help you and your children read faster while maintaining or even improving overall comprehension.

    AceReader helps you break two major bad habits: Subvocalization (pronouncing the words in your mind while you read), and Re-Reading/Regression (letting your eyes wander back to re-read the text).

    But that’s only the beginning. AceReader will also help you: Reduce Your Eye Fixation Time (time spent when your eyes are focused on a single point), Expand Your Eye Fixation Zone (ability to read a wider text width when your eyes are focused on a single point) and Increase Your Re-Fixation Speed (ability to reposition your eyes at a rapid rate).

    When you master the art of speed reading, the process itself becomes something like watching a movie. You’ll be equipped with the ability to absorb far more material in a shorter amount of time.

    **SPECIAL OFFER: Today’s discount applies to both AceReader Pro and AceReader Pro Deluxe. The deluxe version allows up to 5 users, and builds in a number of extra features including Game Editors, Drill and Drill Text Editors, Readability Stats, a Spell Checker, and more. Check out the macZOT special offers page for details by logging in to your macZOT account!

    A Few Reasons Why You Need AceReader:

  • Proficient Reading = Proficient Learning. Once you unlock your reading potential, you will unlock your ability to learn everything more proficiently.
  • Better grades in school. Teach your children skills that will pay benefits through high school, college and into the workplace.
  • Better performance on the job where reading skills are more and more important.
    More hours in your life as your reading speed increases.
  • Better quality of life as your reading, understanding and retention grow year after year.
  • Real Users Say:

  • “As a speed reading instructor for Certified Learning Centers, I have evaluated many software programs over the years. However, once I found AceReader Pro, I knew I didn’t need to look any further. The program is easy to follow, allows the user to adjust a wide variety of parameters, and reinforces all the techniques critical to becoming an efficient reader. In short, AceReader Pro is a must for anybody who is serious about improving both their reading speed and their comprehension. We have selected AceReader Pro as the software to use in our courses.”- Miriam Ruff, Certified Learning Centers, Silver Spring, MD
  • “Dear AceReader Executives: North Park Academy began incorporating AceReader into our curriculum on a weekly basis last year to much success! The students truly enjoy the “competition” to increase their own reading skills while the teachers can see the results, too. Many students have increased their speed and comprehension by 200 – 300%! We will continue to use AceReader because it works for both the younger and older students.”- Jeff Drozda, Indiana State Senator, COO of North Park Academy, Indianapolis, IN
  • “Acereader Pro is a great buy! As a Reading Specialist and Ed Therapist, I am constantly looking for good tools that I can use in my practice and recommend to parents and students for use at home. Acereader Pro is always at the top of my list. It is a fun, easy to use, kid and parent-friendly, customizable, no-nonsense, workhorse that actually helps improve reading speed and comprehension in as little as 10 minutes a day. I have used Acereader as part of the Bernard EASE reading fluency program for the past six years in private practice, clinics, and school settings, and it just keeps getting better. Kids can’t wait to get to the computer and parents are amazed at how easy it is to use. I have recommended Acereader for kindergartners and lawyers alike! Whether you have a child who is just learning to read or need to get through volumes of text more quickly Acereader is worth the money!”- Alison O’Fallon, Los Angeles, CA
  • “I wanted to let you know that your program ACE READER PRO has been a great help to me. I have been able to increase my reading speed from less than 250 WPM to over 650 WPM. I purchased the program when I was in my second year of law school. Reading faster with greater comprehension helped me finish my law school homework in a timely manner and was especially helpful in getting me through the bar exam. I have used other speed reading programs but I like the Ace Reader the most. Some of the other programs have canned reading. I like the Ace Reader better because you can read any material as long as you can get it on your computer’s clipboard. The results from your Program are fantastic. I plan to practice more speed reading, my goal is to read 1500 WPM or more. Thanks again for your great program.”- Jon Dowat, Attorney at Law, Aurora, IL
  • “I wish that everyone knew just how great this program is for children with visual perception, dyslexia, or other problem. Now with the auditory help, even children with audio perception problems will benefit from the program. Now that my daughter has the ability to sound out words, I know that we will be able to use this program to increase her word perception and speed. I purchased the program last year and am very pleased. I am mentioning this program to all of the homeschool groups that I think would love to know about your program. I am most likely going to purchase the voice add on program. I do want to thank you for developing a program that we can use at home. We would not be able to afford the visual perception help at a visual facility. I also plan to contact our county school district to inform them of this program. Keep making these tools, they are needed! A proud mom of a reading dyslexic child!”- Sharon Yarbrough, South Carolina
  • “Interactive Information wrote: “Being in charge of software selection for a school district is a big chore. Our schools reading scores were down very badly and we were searching for a solution through adding software. We found AceReader on the Web and tried the demo version. It took only a few minutes to come to a decision to purchase it. Since using it daily on a computer with 4th-8th grade students, we see a HUGE improvement in only a 2 week period. By using this piece of software we can see immediately by charting the graphs just how each student is doing and this is recorded as actual grades in the Reading Teacher’s grade book. Another nice feature is that you can use this on one stand alone computer and it goes so quickly you can get a lot of students on it and tested in a short period of time.”- Kevin Gallion, Illinois
  • “I am thoroughly pleased with my new tool, and have been outspoken about it to my friends ever since my wife ordered it for me. (yes, I wore out my 30 day demo first….:-) Terrific concept, and adaptable to your own personal reading preferences. Congratulations to the creator’s of the program. In my small opinion, you did a wonderful job.”- David Dundale, Georgia
  • “I find that reading faster is helping in graduate school. Your speed reader is easy to use and allows me to read the materials that I need to study for class. I am sure that using your program will help me get better grades. I liked being able to download the program so that I could get it immediately. Thanks for having a good service.”- Randy
    Hobson, Illinois
