Why must SteerMouse be "reconnected" every morning? Why can't it automatically poll to see if it's still "connected" and reconnect if it is not? The software works fairly well - and is a bit less confusing than USB Overdrive - but this "reconnect" thing is annoying.

Mac OS X Lion Looking forward to: Mission Control (Spaces Done Better?) Gestures Auto Save (not much) Versions (a little) Resume (nice) Don't really care about: App Store LaunchPad Full-Screen Apps (care a little) Mail 5 (eh, whatevs) AirDrop (isn't this just the public drop box?) FileVault

Held a MacBook Air 11″

In a word: want. Screw the iPad.

Stupid Flash

Adobe stinks. And no, clicking "RETRY" does not help.

Got a Magic Trackpad

My friend, co-worker, and partner Dave has been raving about his Magic Trackpad. I'd finally heard enough and picked one up through a friend who also raved about his when I inquired. Initial impressions? Eh. I like that I can use the thing while reclined, as a sort of "magic remote control," and I hear […]

Adjusted to Mail

I ditched Entourage in favor of Mail back in November, and despite some early frustrations, I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. I now know where to put my cursor so that a backspace or forward space won't remove those bizarre quoting lines Mail uses. I've come to find tremendous joy in pasting […]

Spotlight Save Failure

Really, Mac OS X? You can't find a file with the word "shaft" in it on the Desktop? Really?

Drobo Post Still Getting Hits

It's interesting to me that this Drobo post from late 2008 is still getting hits. But, then again, the information is pretty good and still relevant, so in that regard not surprising at all. The point of this post? Just to point that out and to say that my Drobo continues to hum along just […]

Where are the New MacBooks?

I know at least four people who are waiting on the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros to be announced and released. They're not in a rush - they just don't want to buy a computer and have it replaced by a better computer at the same or even a lower price a week or two […]

I haven't seen anyone point this out yet - since Mac OS X 10.6.6 double-clicking an unknown file now presents this dialog box to the user: Hmmmmmmm.

The App Store is Here

The Mac App Store is here and I've downloaded Twitter (yay Tweetie 2.0! Boo that it doesn't do anything with the tweet: JavaScript!). There seem to be three ways to handle the transition: Here's a decent way to handle it: charge customers for the next version now at a discount. If they want to get […]

When Safari Crashes…

… and it doesn't happen frequently, mind you, but when it does, why does it often take minutes for it to be able to reconnect to websites? Other things can connect - I can ping sites in Terminal - but Safari sputters and refuses to connect to even for seconds or even minutes sometimes.

Susan Kare Original Mac Prints

Oooooh, awesome! I'm thinking that one of these and of course one of these at a minimum. And since I'll likely find a way to acquire those, those who love me might want to look at this or this in the 17" x 22" sizes... Very cool, anyway. Even if I don't have the wall […]

Kiwi Twitter Client

Downloaded Kiwi the other day for Twitter. I'm still using Tweetie because it handles multiple accounts quite nicely and in a compact interface. Not a fan of Kiwi, and don't care about themes. Tweetie works well but I'd really, really, really like to see Tweetie 2.0. I know that may not occur given that the […]

A friend needs a Mac laptop (and not the Air). The last MacBook release was May of 2010. The last MacBook Pro release was April 2010. According to the Buyer's Guide lists both as "don't buy" right now. It's awfully close to Christmas… and today's announcement is from iTunes (about the Beatles I'd guess)… so […]
