Have you tried the new ChatGPT 4o – Omni?

The new ChatGPT app is here and is set to revolutionize how you interact with AI. It reminds me of the computer on Star Trek, where you can activate and interact just by using your voice. The app comes with a fresh, user-friendly design that makes chatting with ChatGPT smoother and more intuitive. With faster response times and an offline mode, you can get the answers you need, even without an internet connection.

The Apple Vision Pro is designed to blend the digital and physical worlds seamlessly. Imagine having virtual screens, interactive 3D objects, and immersive environments right in your living room. Whether you’re watching a movie, playing a game, or collaborating on a project, the Vision Pro promises an experience that feels incredibly real and engaging.


One of the coolest aspects of the Vision Pro is its versatility. It’s not just a device for entertainment; it has the potential to revolutionize how we work, learn, and interact with the world.

RealityScan, a free 3D scanning app, developed in collaboration with Quixel, that turns your smartphone photos into high-fidelity 3D models—in the most accessible way possible.

Capturing real-world assets for digital experiences has traditionally been complicated, technical, and labor-intensive.

Mac App: Presentify for Quick Annotations

Presentify is a Mac App I discovered last month and I’m loving it. Presentify allows you to quickly annotate, highlight or spotlight your cursor. Whether you are creating a screencast, presenting in Teams, or just chatting over slack, Presentify provides a way to quickly highlight and communicate an idea without having to switch or juggle tools, apps, or settings.

Why is this important? Unlike Zoom which has the ability for everyone to annotate on a shared screen, Teams, Webex, and Slack Huddles do not have the ability. When walking thru a concept, sharing a story, or reviewing prototypes, Presentify allows you to quickly annotate in the context of the conversation and save time, making it easier to share an idea or communicate feedback.

Highlighting your cursor – you can control the color

After activating the app, you have a simple tool bar where you can quickly select 1 of 3 colors, which you can customize, select freehand tool, arrow, shapes, text or erase what’s on screen.

Hitting the / key allows you to display Shortcuts and see the current keyboard setting or you can customize the keys within your preferences.

Cost $5.99 – 1 time fee

Quickly Remove Backgrounds with macOS Monterey

Using a Mac with the M1 chips is allow Apple to create and expand its features to make it easier for everyone to do more. A simple example, you can now right-click on any image, in the Finder, select Quick Actions and Remove Background. After a couple of seconds, the image will appear in its silhouetted format.

Growing up with Photoshop and learning how to create an alpha key, this just makes me smile because anyone can now isolate an object in seconds.
