A few weeks ago the hard drive of my MacBook Pro said good bye. I think by now it is the 3rd hard drive that died. This time I ordered a SSD. All the people I know who has one, recommended it. And since I learned that besides the immense speed the durability of the hard drive is supposed to be much better, I am looking forward to it.
And now I decided that I will re-build my MacBook from scratch. I think I will keep all my files, like photos and music on external hard drives. Basically I need to because the SSD will just have space for 240GB. I will just focus on the most important files, like CV, invoices, my letter design, tax reports and stuff like that. But besides that what do I need? What kind of apps, tools, add-ons should I get?
Best video tool? Still VLC? Best browser? Chrome? Plugins?
Is Alfred still the best launcher/finder?
Some things are set, like Spotify, Dropbox, Skype, AirFoil. And Pocket! I just love it. Do you have any suggestions? Keep in mind that it would be cool if these tools work on iOS and Windows (work) as well. That’s why I like Pocket so much. And I still use Notesy, Dropbox and Notational Velocity (NVault) for my note keeping.
Is there a good easy way to synchronize videos from the MacBook some how automatically to an iPad? Like an automator script, where new videos in a certain folder are automatically synched? Any idea? And watched videos get deleted on my iPad? Still nothing, huh? Thanks in advance.
