Slate is free and very powerful, and it does exactly what you want. I answered this in a previously asked question, but I'll summarize my answer here: When you plug in your secondary monitor, Slate automatically detects the new monitor, and all of your windows will be moved and resized just the way you like them. You can define custom positions and ...

OmniGraffle from The Omni Group might be just what you're looking for. It's a commercial application but it's significantly cheaper than Illustrator. I've been using it for a good few years now as a better alternative to Visio, mainly to draw network diagrams, however I did use it a few times also to draw app icons, etc. It supports exporting to PNG, SVG ...

I've personally used Sophos (Standalone version) and found that it causes high-memory utilization and some other file-system issues. (Updates on this one will bring your internet speeds to minimum). I find avast! much better. It's free and covers most basic of the environments. The only caveat is the the first scan takes longer (~55 min for me). I've also ...

Again, not what you want, but I prefer HippoRemote to the other iPhone-as-software-mouse suggestions because it doesn't require a server app to be running on your computer; you are allowed access to the computer via IP address by logging in with your user ID and you can choose to either have the app retain or erase that information. The pay version of the ...

I highly recommend Keynote for this. Whilst Apple haven't perfected importing all the functionality of PowerPoints yet, the exporting works flawlessly and you can create great presentations on Keynote.

You could create a Yahoo pipe that filters your RSS feeds for those specific keywords. Then create an RSS feed of the pipe's output. Use that to create a Feed Channel trigger in IFTTT that texts you, emails you, notifies your iphone, etc. It’s a multilayered approach, I admit, but I think it could work for you if you don’t mind using those services.

I highly recommend the app SelfControl: http://selfcontrolapp.com You can use either a whitelist or a blacklist of websites and you can set it for a specified time limit. It's great for either blocking the sites you know will tempt you, or allowing only certain sites you know you'll need. You can also edit the hosts file at /private/etc/hosts to block ...

Another option is to create ~/Library/KeyBindings/, save { "a" = { "s" = (insertText:, "λ"); }; } as ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict, and quit and reopen applications to apply changes. That prevents you from inserting a, but you might replace a with another key combination like ~a (option-a) or \Uf704 (F1).

The answers that others have given are probably the way you want to do this, but if you really wanted to intercept and inject keystrokes, check out how Karabiner (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook) does it. Here's the interesting bit: https://github.com/tekezo/Karabiner/tree/master/src/core/kext It would be pretty involved to adapt their code and do what you ...

Most of the text macro tools available on the Mac will be able to trigger scripts (Applescript, shell scripts, etc.) as well as perform standard expansions based on the input and context. I like to start my expansions with the semi-colon since I know I will rarely accidentally trigger an expansion in my normal typing, and it's an easy key to hit. For ...

For iPhone there is Rowmote and man more (just search for Mouse) - if you find them in the iPad-AppStore they work. Also you may take a look at AirDisplay it can make your iPad to a second Monitor but also it gives you the abillity to have a touchscreen Display.

Remote Mouse is a free app downloadable from the iOS App Store, which can act as a trackpad, "Wiimote" style controller, or keyboard. You also have to download the Remote Mouse Server app from the Mac App Store onto the Mac you wish to control. This app DOES NOT work as a mouse in the traditional sense. The closest feature to a mouse that is offered is ...

Remotemouse There is a app named remotemouse in the app store i personally have used this app so you can try it. Its easy to use as mouse. Hope this will help you.

To the best of my knowledge, the answer is no. Of course, without trying out every single mouse app in the App Store, I can't be 100% certain. I can tell you that I've been a long time user of Mobile Mouse. They have about the best mouse/remote control app I've found. They put a lot of effort into trying to get the app to work like a real mouse, and ...

I do not know how to disable the navigation bar on Safari for iOS. However, applications exist for iOS that may satisfy your requirement.

I have never personally used it, but it is free. Amtel ...

The simplest way I know uses Preview. Open both photos with Preview, position their windows side-by-side (flush) in front of your desktop and then use Preview's "Take a screen shot" command with the "from Selection" option. Select around the perimeter of both photos together and it will create a montage for you.

In your case probably the mdfind will do great job. It is not a GUI but a Terminal command, and it will search everywhere and everything. Once found you can triple click on the line (to select it) and Right Click and use the "Reveal in Finder".

"QuickTime on Mavericks" is not QuickTime anymore - it is "AV Foundation". QuickLook and QuickTime Player are based on this "new QuickTime". "AV Foundation" comes from iOS, was implemented for Mac OS X too and does not offer extensions (and will never) like codecs / plugins. As Apple says: anything else than MPEG-4 (H.264) is old stuff and must be ...

I had some kind of similar question here. I decided to go my own route, because basically everything from big companies is specific to their environment. And even though it required some work, I ended up with a solution I am quite happy with. I have a Mac Server and a DynDNS service. I have a Madsonic Instance running, which is a fork of Subsonic. ...
