Aether ham radio logger
Open Reel Software recently unveiled Aether, a new application designed to log ham radio sessions. Aether provides tools to quickly and easily log contacts while on the air, as well as organize, search and track contacts after the fact. Features include instant search, automatic callbook lookup, serial rig control, cocoaModem integration and more. Aether is available for $40 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
Synium Software has introduced CleanApp 3, a new version of the uninstaller and system management tool, as a public beta. The tool allows you to delete cache files, applications and other items wasting drive space. The new release is fully compatible with Leopard and features a completely redesigned graphical user interface. The logging service has been rewritten for maximum performance and the app now leverages launchd. CleanApp 3 uses less memory and CPU than CleanApp 2, and there is a new Status Display that visualizes all logged tasks.
