Have you been wondering what I’ve been up to?

by Doc Coleman May 15, 2017 Announcements

It has been a while since I’ve been able to post a new review to this blog. I have been extremely busy and I have had little time to order my thoughts on the subject of technology. So what have I been doing? I’ve been writing. Specifically, I’ve been writing and editing, and publishing, a novel. My first novel, but not my last.

Happy 4th Birthday, Nifty Tech Blog!

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor February 1, 2014 Announcements

That’s right, four years ago, on February 1st 2010, the first Nifty Tech blog post went live. While technology has come a long way since that first post, it is remarkable how so many of those early posts are still relevant today. For years is  long time in the technology industry, but I don’t think we’ve had a single Nifty Tech pick that has gone by the wayside. If anything, most of the products have managed to improve since the original reviews. And while things have been slow in the past year, we’re not done yet…

Limited time offer for FX Photo Studio!

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor April 27, 2013 Announcements

I’ve been lax in dealing with my correspondence of late. Personal matters have driven a lot of things to the side, including this blog. So, when I came across an e-mail from MacPhun telling me that their app FX Photo Studio was going to be free in the iTunes store for just one day in April, I figured that I had missed an opportunity to share this with you. Well not quite. FX Photo Studio, is available FREE TODAY. FX Photo Studio is a photo manipulation app that boasts 194 different photo effects. We haven’t looked at it before as a potential review, but we will be considering it in the future. But if you want to check it out for yourself, today is the best time to pick it up. Just head to the iTunes Store and get your copy for iPhone or iPad before the price goes back up.

UPDATE: Whoops, it turns out I did miss the free day, but MacPhun was so happy with the numbers they got, they have kept FX Photo Studio at free and they are hoping to get 10 million downloads by the end of May.

Support the Staff’s latest endeavor!

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor October 9, 2012 Announcements

Yes, it’s been a while since our last review went live. Sometimes it gets like that, with new revisions coming out right when you think a review is ready, or discovering some problem that knocks a promising candidate right out of the water. And sometimes, life gets in the way. This post is about some of that life.

If you’ve ever taken time to visit our Meet the Staff! page, you’ll know that both Scott and I write fiction in addition to writing tech reviews. We’ve each had our own projects from time to time. Now we’ve got a new project  where we’re both going to be participating. It’s not a Nifty Tech project, but I thought I’d share it with you and let you decide if you are interested.

Are you going to Balticon?

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor May 18, 2012 Announcements

I am!

I’m going to be a guest again this year at Balticon 46, and if you’re going to be there, and you’re a Nifty Tech Blog reader, I’d like to meet you! While you can find out all about Balticon at their web site, Balticon.org, there are a lot of panels and programs to sift through to find what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for me, I’ve put up my Balticon itinerary over at Swimming Cat Studios. I’ve got twelve panels this year, plus a reading of my fiction on Monday.

See you at Balticon!

Technical Difficulties.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor December 20, 2011 Announcements

We are sorry for the problems with the previous post “I’m bringing Nifty Back” giving a 404 error. We’re working on the problem, but WordPress doesn’t seem to be behaving properly at all. We apologize for any inconvenience.

UPDATE: The problem is fixed now. Seems to have been a small issue with our permalinks, but we have it all sorted out.

I’m bringin’ Nifty Back.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor December 20, 2011 Announcements

This blog has been quiet for a while, but I wanted to assure folks that it hasn’t gone away. Scott and I have both had to take time away from Nifty Tech to pursue other projects. We had set a pretty steady pace, but with all the demands on our time we weren’t able to sustain it. But the Nifty Tech Blog isn’t quite dead yet. We are in the process of gearing up again, and you will have an opportunity to contribute to the success of the blog.

An unexpected turn of events.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor February 14, 2011 Announcements

Friends and Neighbors, I was in the midst of putting the finishing touches upon today’s review, when I began suffering several bouts of painful gastric distress. It has been very distracting and has eaten up my time this evening. The upshot is that today’s review will be late as I need to get to sleep and hopefully recover from this malady. I will have the review finished and out to you as soon as I am physically able.  I am most sorry for the delay.
