Figleaf lets you generate print covers for audio CDs

Say hello to Figleaf, a solution for quickly generating and printing inlets/covers and backcovers for audio CDs.

Figleaf reads the tracklist from MP3 folders or from the CD Remote Database; you'll need a CDDB aware application to get the tracknames from the CDDB. For emusic albums it will automatically get the cover from emusic; otherwise, it will search Google or other search sites for the cover.

Figleaf, made with the REALbasic editing environment from Real Software Inc., generates the title and playing time for each track. If possible, if will retrieve the album title and artist name, as well as the cover image. It can generate an inlet and a back cover for standard CD jewel cases.

The application automatically sizes the font to fit the full tracklist, according to author Thomas Hassan. However, with some fonts and certain CDs (such as those with very long tracknames), you may get less than desirable results. Figleaf prints the artist and album on the front cover, or, if you wish, the image only. It can optionally print cropmarks and borders. With Figleaf, you can add notes, and even have the app calculate the total playing time.

However, Figleaf doesn't print to CD Inlet stationery like Avery or Zweckform. It's designed for "plain paper and scissors only," Hassan said. Figleaf is shareware and costs US$14.50 to register. The basic standard layout is available for unregistered users; any additional options need a valid registration. It's now available for downloading.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
