Do you feel like you’re always behind on all the tasks you need to accomplish? Jeff Porten examines the Getting Things Done system with an eye toward using your Mac to help organize your life. Also this week, Adam and Jason Snell of Mac Publishing submit an RFP – request for proposal – to spur Macintosh developers to create a collaborative writing environment. Plus, Apple announced another banner quarter with a $472 million profit, Adam and Tonya talk about computer book publishing on the MacNotables podcast, and we announce upcoming changes to our back end systems.
