We’ve all faced the difficulty of moving a file from our Mac to our iPhone. There’s iCloud, Dropbox and a host of other services to help us tranfer these files, but there are no solutions as elegant as the concept devised by interaction designer Ishac Bertran. His idea for proximity-aware devices and a seamless drag-n-drop transfer is detailed in an article at Fast Company. You can get a glimpse of how the file transfer would work in the Vimeo video embedded below.

Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.5, addressing a variety of fixes. The popular donationware disk cloning and backup utility migrates entries in its private keychain to a new keychain that will comply with the Gatekeeper security feature in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Should a system dialog ask you to grant access to a keychain item, be sure to click Allow. The update reverts to automatically running a scheduled task upon waking your Mac if the task’s run time occurred during sleep (which was built into the app in versions before 3.4.4), but you can contact the Bombich Software Help Desk for guidance on a hidden setting that automatically skips tasks missed during sleep. Other fixes include more consistent Growl notifications in OS X 10.7 Lion, ensuring the last choice in the preset configurations menu is retained, and correctly rescheduling taks configured to run weekly or monthly.

Apple needs to get on board with this technology to keep pace in the video and movie industry. The next MacPro workstation needs to be able to use type of technology in the market place. It is scary that Apple doesn’t even consider it important to have a presence at the NAB show when this type of technology is being previewed to the world. Adobe is all over it. The industry is making a switch to Adobe Premier 6.0 and Avid Products because of the FCP changes. Finalcut Pro is a incredible product designed around the core OS features. Most average users have little understanding of this beyond their every day workflows with a given application. Hopefully the next MacPro creates and audience again for Finalcut Pro and Apple’s design applications. Reference the Fusion Blog report.

The new Smoke is aimed at users of Apple’s Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer who want high-end editing and finishing tools in the same package. Smoke 2013 will cost $3495 when it ships in the fall, down from $14,995. This isn’t Autodesk’s first price-cut for Smoke. It was initially a Linux-based finishing system that cost between $45,000 and $90,000 (thought those prices did include hardware).
The new Smoke user interface combines track-based editing that Autodesk says uses industry-standard editing conventions. Alonside this is the ConnectFX node-based compositing system. This sits inside the timeline for high-end effects and advanced compositing without leaving the editorial environment.
