Todos’ job is simple. Todos doesn’t do more than it says. Like its definition in Spanish, Todos will show you everything. Todos shows you all your applications in a complete dock.

Click any application in Todos and it will instantly launch. Todos will fade away after application launch. Perhaps you don’t want it go go away so fast? Just hold the command key and click. Todos will open the application and remain displayed. Don’t forget to stand back and wow at all those cool icons for all of your applications. OS X has beautiful icons, why not see them more?

Aquamac EMacs – An Editor for Text, HTML, LaTeX, C++, Java, Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP, and more

Emacs is a text editor of legendary power and configurability, but it also has an enormously complex user interface. One advantage of it is: no matter what operating system you run Emacs on, you’ll always get the same interface. The big problem: if you use a number of applications on your Mac, one of them is Emacs, you’ll have to switch gears when you switch to Emacs.

Aquamacs is better.
We support the standard Mac user interface that you’ve come to love. For instance, in addition to traditional Emacs shortcuts like C-x C-f (open a new file), Aquamacs understands Command-O. Aquamacs behaves like a modern application on Mac (or Windows) when it comes to selecting, copying, pasting texts within Aquamacs or in between applications. Aquamacs offers nice, smooth fonts. Asian input methods work. It’s easy to install and runs out-of-the box with no configuration. And all is built on GNU Emacs, so you can use your favorite Emacs packages! Check the Features section if you want to know more.

Think – Help you concentrate

Look around your screen right now. It’s okay, we’ll wait.

At this very moment, applications are fighting for your attention. Between chat windows, Finder windows, Web browser windows, and everything else, it’s amazing any of us can concentrate at all. As it has become easier to multitask, we’ve become more likely to have two dozen windows on the screen at any given moment. Innovations like Expose makes finding what you want in the sea of visual stimuli easier, but they’ve done little to remove those distractions.

Focusing takes concentration, and concentration takes energy. You can only concentrate on so much at a time, and you can’t create more energy. What we need to do is change how we work.

Let’s limit our attention to one application—any application—at any time. Let’s make it easy to change focus when we have to. Let’s allow ourselves to bring other apps up quickly if we need them, but put them out of sight again just as quickly.

Let’s rediscover how to focus, and get back to thinking.
