In today’s edition of Deals & Steals, we found a brand-new 12-inch rose gold MacBook for $400 off. We also have great deals on a Logitech universal remote bundle, a surprisingly stylish router and a cheap smartphone.
You’ve got yourself a new iPhone 5 and are looking for something that just won’t show it off – but will show it off with style. You also want to offer it some protection at the same time and have it stand out from the crowd.
If that’s what you’re looking for, then look no further because the latest Cult of Mac Deals offer will leave you and your iPhone 5, well…glowing. We’re offering a limited quantity of Glow Gel Combos to our continental US readers for only $24 – and they won’t last long at that price.
Did you know Microsoft Excel was release on the Mac before it was released on Windows? Pretty cool when you think about it—Microsoft launched its first attack on Lotus 1–2–3 through the Mac. Well that was in the late 80s-early 90s and 25 years have passed and Excel has only gotten more sophisticated and powerful. Most people who use Excel know the basics of formulas and spreadsheets, but like most apps the real power and treasures lie just below the surface.
DVDs haven’t, contrary to popular belief, gone the way of the dinosaur or the dodo—people still want video on DVD to watch and share with others. Even if you don’t want (or need) to burn the movie to a physical disc, the format is still pretty handy.
As much as iDVD wasn’t the greatest thing about iLife it worked, but we all know that iDVD has been rather neglected by Apple of late. So, what are you going to do if you need to make a great DVD and iDVD just isn’t cutting it for you? How about today’s deal—Wondershare DVD Creator.
Yesterday we offered the deal on learning PowerPoint—Learn Microsoft PowerPoint 2011 For Mac [Deals]—which is great, but you still need to have great looking presentations. Ever notice how most PowerPoint presentations look pretty much the same? Sure a few stand out, but most, well, you know they came from the same stock templates everyone uses.
Which is where Slidevana for PowerPoint comes in. A great template/layout pack of professional designs that will make your presentations stand out.
How well organized is your Documents folder? How about your Dropbox folder? Could you find that proposal you were working on? How about those images for the website you started for a client that was put on hold and it now a hot priority?
Right, exactly. Sure we have Spotlight (Or better Alfred) and we all try to keep things organized, but sometimes “life” gets in the way of keeping things together. This is where iDocument comes in.
There’s something about a really well-edited photo that just “pops”. And then there are the photos that have had creative filters applied and you just see the image in a whole new way. You know it’s not magic right? You know that all it takes is practice, the right image, and…the right software.
Sure, iPhoto is pretty good and Aperture is powerful, but neither of them are really designed for effects (or layering effects), which is where FX Photo Studio Pro comes in. Part of the Cult Of Mac Deals FX Photo Studio Pro is usually $40 in the Mac App Store, but you can get it for $20 now!
How do you organize all of your images? Not just the photos, which iPhoto is okay at doing, but screenshots, wallpapers, mockups, all the rest of the stuff? If you’re like me, you probably have either everything in your Pictures folder or in a cascade of folders on your Mac. I think we should be smarter than that, shouldn’t we?
Turns out, it’s not all our faults. There haven’t been great apps for organizing your existing images, without actually making them less accessible. Then came Sparkbox, things changed, and we’re happier. Which is good, because Sparkbox is today’s deal—Sparkbox – Cult of Mac Deals.
Photoshop Elements 10 is the Photoshop for “regular people”, sure Photoshop is awesomely powerful, but Photoshop also awesomely complex. So we have Photoshop Elements for “the rest of us”, but working with photos is still a pretty complicated and (potentially) daunting task. Hey, I’ve been there. Lots of “good” photos that you want to make “great” but don’t really know how to tap into all the power and features of Elements to get that done. That’s where a video course on Photoshop Elements 10 from Udemy comes in. Regularly a course like this (8 hours of content over 90 lectures) is $49, but now you can get it for only $19.
