How To Batch Resize Photos - Mac Picture Resizer

If you've got a big batch of photos, resizing all of them can become quite tedious. You can resize those pictures one by one using a simple graphics editing application, or you can find an application that will let you resize a big bulk of pictures in one go. I like that last idea better. If you also like that idea, and you're looking for a batch image resizer for Mac, then you don't need to look very far because you already have one installed in Mac OS X. Free! Macs come with a built-in application called Automator that allows you to batch resize images on your Mac. You don't need to download and install any third-party applications. Automator is a very useful application that lets you create automated workflows for repetitive tasks, and functioning as a a Mac picture resizer is simply one of the things that it can do.

If you want to learn how to resize a batch of images on your Mac using Automator, then here is a video tutorial that will teach you how:

Buy A Wireless iPhone Charger - Philippines

Looking for where to buy a wireless iPhone charger in the Philippines?

I was at the Rustan's Department Store in Makati today and I was looking at some products displayed in this little tech corner that they have (it's right across Lacoste, and it's not a very big area so it's pretty easy to miss), and I saw that they are currently carrying the Powermat wireless charging systems.

powermat wireless iPhone charger

powermat iPhone receiver case

The Powermat is basically this pad that lets you charge a device by simply placing the device on top of it. But your device needs to have a Powermat receiver in order for it to get power. This receiver looks just like those protective cases for mobile devices. So you just attach your device to the case, and you'll be able to charge it without a power cord.

These were the following Powermat products that I saw were available at Rustan's:

Receiver Case for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS ... Php 3,895
A receiver case for your iPhone so that you can charge it on a Powermat.

Powermat 2X Mat with Powercube ... Php 8,549
This one does not come with a case for the iPhone. It's just a charging mat with space for 2 devices. It comes with a Powercube, which you can attach to compatible devices so that you can charge them on the Powermat.

Powermat Wireless Charging System for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS ... Php 6,999
This one is a bundled package that has a small Powermat that has space for one iPhone, and comes with a receiver case for the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Powermat already has a charging system for the iPhone 4, but Rustan's does not carry them yet as of this post.

*Prices may change. I also don't know how long they'll be carrying this product.

Watch this video to see how the Powermat works:


You can learn more about the Powermat by going to the Powermat website.

So are there any iPhone users out there in the Philippines who want a wireless charger for their iPhones?

Touch Screen iMac Spotted At Auto Convention

This touch screen iMac that you will see on the video was spotted at the Philadelphia International Car Show 2011. This of course is not an official Apple product (at least not yet, and I don't know if it ever will be), but one that's been modified to turn the iMac display into a touch screen.

Here is the video (skip to 1:42 if you want to see the touch screen iMac right away):



So what do you think of the touch screen iMac? Would you want one?
