Apple's earnings call this quarter revealed news that was very much in line with the trends we've been seeing from the Cupertino company in years past: For the most part, device sales were up, but sales of the iPad continued the downward slide we've been seeing for a while. Yet in the face of such dire news, research firm IDC (via MacRumors) shows that Apple still maintains a healthy lead over its competitors in the tablet market.

For specifics, Apple currently holds a 26.9 percent controlling share. Samsung continues to hold second place with a 17.2 share of the market based on 8.5 million shipments, but both of the tech giants have been feeling the pain as numerous other tablet manufacturers have been filling the market with inexpensive, easily obtainable models.

Consider Lenovo, for instance, which jumped from a 3.3 percent share to 4.9 percent or ASUS's impressive 13.5 percent growth from last year. "Other" tablet manufacturers who aren't big enough to make the list take up much of the rest of the slack for a full 37 percent share of the tablet market.

"As we indicated last quarter, the market is still being impacted by the rise of large-screen smartphones and longer than anticipated ownership cycles," said Jean Philippe Bouchard, IDC research director for tablets, in the report. "We can also attribute the market deceleration to slow commercial adoption of tablets. Despite this trend, we believe that stronger commercial demand for tablets in the second half of 2014 will help the market grow and that we will see more enterprise-specific offerings, as illustrated by the Apple and IBM partnership, come to market."

If you've ever had any doubts that the so-called iWatch is going to be a success, consider the "evidence" amassed by perennial prankster Jimmy Kimmel last night. In the video below, Kimmel's team pesters passersby on Hollywood Boulevard and tells them to check out Apple's upcoming smartwatch, and for the most part, they all respond enthusiastically. The catch? It's just a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo slapped on the back.

"I like that it has an Apple insignia on the back," one person said. "If it's Apple, it's good, right?" Plenty of people thought so, even though the watch Kimmel's team was passing around lacked the ability to do anything besides report the time and date. It was especially appealing, one person said, because the numbers were so easy to see.

Funny stuff, but it's likely just as much a testament to the quality people expect from Apple products as it is a reflections of their willingness to buy into the Apple mythos. Indeed, at least one of the people had a response that Apple might do well to heed in designing the final product: "It's very lightweight and it's kind of old school, but still in style." Sounds like something I'd like to wear.

Kimmel also took the opportunity to poke some fun at the upcoming iPhone 6 units, which are widely rumored to feature much larger screens than we've seen on the device in the past. " "They make the bigger phones, and then in two years they'll release the iPhone mini, which is the size of the phones we have now," Kimmel said. "And we'll wait in line for like three days for it because that's how we are."

OmniOutliner Pro is all about structure. It’s like a combination of a word processor and the list- and table-making capabilities of Excel. In fact, if you commonly use Excel as a simple list-based database, you’ll find OmniOutliner a more powerful dedicated option. Likewise, if you want to create long documents that depend on a rigorous application of structure, such as technical documentation, OmniOutliner is a great option.

OmniOutliner Pro can be used for virtually any list-making or long-document task.

Version 4.0 features a redesigned interface and is now Mavericks-only. As with previous versions of OmniOutliner, it’s easy to create consistently styled outlines. Unlike the outliners built into word processors, there’s a strong focus on keyboard commands, which, for the professional writer, is a huge advantage. Features such as Focus View (which lets you display only the current row and all its “children”) are great when you’re working on a lot of information.

OmniOutliner Pro is powerful, but the features in the Pro version are probably not worth the extra $50 over the regular version. Pro allows you to export files in .docx format, for instance, but the regular version exports in Word-readable RTF. 

The bottom line. If you need an outliner, this is the one to get. But consider whether you really need the Pro version.

The Omni Group

Contact:

$99.99

Requirements: 

Intel-based Mac, OS X 10.9 or later, 55MB disk space
