There are a couple of "secret" projects I am working on this year and I am thrilled that the first one is out in the public now: Der Übercast — an accident in the German tech podcast airspace.

derubercast-logoDer Übercast is a cooperation with my nerd friends and now co-pilots Andreas Zeitler (MacOSXScreencasts) and Patrick Welker (RocketINK) and our joint attempt to shake up the concerningly boring German tech podcast scene.

You can expect us to talk a lot about Mac, iPhone and iPad, but certainly also about the wider Apple ecosystem and technology overall. While we are generally trying to be helpful, it is also not unlikely that it'll all end up in a lot of non-sense sometimes.

We are very excited that we have successfully pursuaded some non-German speaking friends like Merlin Mann, Federico Viticci, Stephen Hackett or David Sparks to talk a little Deutsch for us. Just these snippets are worth tuning in for. Here is a little teaser, but you'll hear those features over the upcoming episodes.

Our intro episode and the 1st proper one covering "Wearables" are live now. So if you are German-speaking check us out on our Der Übercast site, our iTunes podcast feed and follow us around on Twitter and other places.

FWIW, also Apple Germany thinks we are "New" (that's correct) and "Noteworthy" (yippie!)

Paul Boag is a veteran OmniFocus user and has always made an effort to share how he uses the application. With the OmniFocus 2 Beta he recorded a new screencast that takes you through his setup.

As Chris Bowler in his recent "The Right Mix" post noted, in particular how Paul uses his goals as folders is a very neat idea that makes you evaluate a project twice as you file it into your structure.
