This is too cool!

Just installed the new Apple OS – Mountain Lion – on my four year old MacBook Pro.  Then I noticed a new icon on the Dock – “Notes.”

And what does it do, you ask?  I can now open a new note, tap the fn key twice, and dictate a message. Whatever I say gets transcribed into text. Then I can message or email that text to whomever I want.

What is a “giclee” print?

The word was literally invented a few years ago by a guy in the printing industry. It sounds good … Fancy … Professional … Special somehow … And – of course! – Expensive.

The invention is derived from a French word which means “nozzle.” And – hey! – it sounds great.  But the truth is – “giclee” is nothing more than another word for inkjet.
