Vemedio has released version 1.2 of Instacast for Mac with a new architecture for synchronizing podcasts between your Mac and iOS devices. By sending smaller bits of data, this new scheme ensures that all your devices are synced with the same state while also saving on network traffic, storage requirements, mobile data charges, and battery power. You’ll need to update to version 4.5 of Instacast for iOS to continue syncing your podcast subscriptions to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. ($19.99 new from Vemedio and the Mac App Store, free update, 7.0 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
