Mac20Q Podcast 16 Stefaan Lesage
Stefaan tells us about his data plan for his iPhone and it is not unlike the plan I have here in Spain. 200mb download each month.
He does video podcasts for a Dutch language web site called itutorpodcast. If you can understand Dutch go and check it out.
Stefaan uses Final Cut Pro on his Mac Pro and he has a MacBook Pro too. We discuss a few things about iLife 09 and in particular iMovie. He makes movies for the family from footage shot by the family and uses ScreenFlow to make his screencasts. He told me about a recent upgrade to ScreenFlow which I had not downloaded at the time of the interview. I have the upgrade now but still have not had time to get using it.
He uses a Time Capsule to make back ups and give some wifi in the house. Stefaan also has a Airport extreme to provide more wifi coverage. For the back up end of things he wants to buy a Drobo for the storage.
For a favourite application is called Billings made by Market Circle, he uses it for tracking time for the purposes of making invoices for his business. Best of all it is not an expensive application to buy. I like to use one called Accounts by Nano Software from Australia. Billings does custom reports, which is a very useful feature.
We came to the conclusion that getting software for the Mac is not a problem at all, most apps are cheaper, better and prettier on the Mac Platform
Stefaan also has an AppleTV despite there not being much content available on iTunes here in Europe. He uses it for showing photos and also for films that he has ripped himself.
Things is one of the applications he uses on his iPhone and his Macs, to organise himself. I compare it a little with using Evernote to organise myself.
Dashboard gets a mention. I use for the world clocks and Stefaan uses the conversion tools. I also have a colour utility called ColourJack.
