When purchasing via Kagi prices are now set in Euros instead of US dollars, bringing them into line with the prices for licenses purchased via PayPal (although take note that single-user licenses purchased through PayPal are still cheaper than those purchased from Kagi, due to Kagi's higher fees). Prices are set in Euros but you can display them in any of over a dozen local currencies and pay in the currency of your choice at the checkout. Visit the new Kagi store here.

Synergy gets 5-mice rating from Macworld

Synergy has been awarded a coveted, 5-mice rating in the August 2005 issue of Macworld. Synergy leads the article, titled "50 Mac Gems":

There are many iTunes controllers and information displays out there, but none works as well as Synergy. It provides systemwide hot keys for playback and volume control; a snazzy, translucent informational display (track, artist, album cover, and so on) that fades in and out at the start of each track (or at your command); and optional playback controls -- which you can customize with downloadable button sets -- in the menu bar. (The playback controls also provide a menu that lists playlists and recent tracks.) The latest version of Synergy features support for Growl (a global notification system for OS X), as well as the ability to launch AppleScripts or other items on track or status changes (€5, about $6 at press time).
