Boinx Mouseposé 2

Boinx Mouseposé 2, the new version of the Mac OS X tool for highlighting your Mouse during presentations and for helping you find your Mouse pointer on large screens, now speaks for itself.

Literally. Using AppleScript and Speech technologies, Mouseposé 2 takes you on a tour of itself. The Talkthrough feature can also be used to create self running demos or trainings of other applications with AppleScript support. Mouseposé 2 also adds a start/stop animation and a blurred edge for even more elegant presentation and visualisation of Mouse clicks.Mouseposé 2 can!

Listen and watch as Mouseposé 2 takes you on a tour of itself, highlighting the most important switches and settings and showing you what it can do. Based on AppleScript and Speech technologies, these 'Talkthrough' tours can be created by anyone for any application that supports AppleScript for demo or training purposes.

Slightly Weird First Few Posts!

Just in case you're wondering, the posts on the blog to date won't necessarily be typical of "My Own Reality" posts. It's just that I'm currently recording a screencast on Flock which should be published tomorrow. I needed to create some posts for the screencasts so I thought I'd leave them in place for posterity. I'll post the links to the screencast once it's ready or you could always subscribe to ScreenCastsOnline and get it "hot off the press" - Subscribe in iTunes

OSX Fake ScreenShot Contest

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I am starting to get really pumped up for WWDC, now just under a month away. Why? Well, I’m definitely expecting some new hardware from Apple. Mac Pros seem pretty likely. But what I’m really anticipating is the first sneak peak of Mac OS X Leopard, or 10.5. - Announcing the Fake Leopard Screenshot Contest

Looking forward to seeing the results of this!
