RealCADD Not To Be Forgotten

Often many users interested in affordable professional-grade CAD programs on the Mac overlook this French-made program.

It is Mac Universal and cross-platform and works also on Windows XP and Linux. RealCADD also supports RBScript which enables the end-user to create their own tools.

KnowledgeMinor (yX) for Excel

We were interested to learn about this new Mac product for Mac Excel users. KnowledgeMinor (yX) in partnership with Intel and Microsoft has released a major new data mining application for the Mac. 

KnowledgeMinor (yX) takes advantage of multi-core processors on your Mac and extreme parallelization to achieve data mining speeds more than 600 times faster then previously. Frank Lemke, the creator said, “Speed is always a big factor in data mining. Our previous product KnowledgeMiner was quite remarkable but (yX) for Excel amazed even us with its speed. We want to thank Microsoft and Intel for their help in developing this product”. (yX) is one of very few applications that currently take advantage of multiple cores on the Mac and the only Mac data mining application to do so.
