Since the start of the war, millions of people have fled Ukraine, mostly to neighbouring European countries. And of course, the Ukrainian economy is suffering too as a lot of businesses have been unable to keep working. … Read More Russia’s “special military operation” is a massacre and a criminal act against humanity.

DEVONthink To Go 3.0, the knowledgebase manager for mobile users gets supercharged

Since a week or so, there’s now DEVONthink To Go 3 and it’s totally different. After playing with it for a week, I’d say it is on par with the Mac version.… Read More DEVONthink To Go 3.0, the knowledgebase manager for mobile users gets supercharged
