teleport lets you use a single mouse and keyboard to control several Macs.
Simply reach an edge of your screen, and your mouse teleports to your nearby Mac, which also becomes controlled by your keyboard. The pasteboard can be synchronized, and you can even drag & drop files between your Macs.
Version 1.1.3 only works on OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion and possibly SnowLeopard. It is only available in English.
You can however still get teleport 1.0.2, which works on Leopard and SnowLeopard with Intel processors, and is available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Danish and Czech.
And if you have an older system or you’re running on PPC, you can still get teleport 1.0.1, which is fully compatible with 1.0.2.

Finding Ways to Use Big Data to Help Small Shops – NYTimes.com.
Brian Janezic, 27, was in the equipment room of one of the two Auto Wash Expressself-service locations he owns in Tucson, going through his cleaning supplies and vending machine items to determine what to reorder, when it hit him. “We have machines that automatically size and wash a car, mix chemicals, activate pumps, turn on lights — and here I am still counting inventory by hand.”

TidBITS: You Can’t Escape Gmail.

Of course, the same is roughly true of other large mail hosting firms, so although the mail you send isn’t likely to allow these companies to target ads at you better, it’s far from being a private communication between you and the recipient.
FileMaker Inc. has released an update for FileMaker Pro 13 (see the release notes here). Among the list of improvements to FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced is the extended functionality of the FMP URL protocol to include support for calling a script to run in FileMaker from within a web viewer.
This is a big deal
Working with the web viewer is now a two way street. You set the web veiwer from FileMaker, and now you get data back from what is going on inside the web viewer.
Previously this capability was only available in FM Go or if you happened to be running FileMaker Pro with a file hosted on FileMaker Server. By removing that constraint, this opens up a lot of possibilities for developers to extend and improve the solutions we build.
In this article, we will show why being able to comminucate with a web viewer is a big deal. (cont.)
