I'm still working on the problems explained in this post: Safari 7.0 in Mavericks Cannot Load iBooks Store, Twitter.com, PayPal.com. I created a new admin account called "Test" that works fine. When I say "fine" I mean I can do these things, which I cannot do on my account: Load both PayPal.com and Twitter.com in […]
I know now what I'll be doing for the next few hours.
There are far, far too many reasons to list here, but suffice to say I'm very glad Apple doesn't delete iMovie 9.0.9. Whoever built iMovie 10.0 and thought it was good deserves to be kicked in the SD card slot.
These two articles came in handy today: OS X: Reset Accessibility Access List OS X: GUI Scripting - Accessibility Access Controls After upgrading, I was having an issue wherein FastScripts was not functioning with my Mail scripts. I have some scripts to change the account from which I'm sending an email, and they rely on […]
So I've got this unusual problem. Safari on my Mac Pro will not load twitter.com (or twitter.com/iacas, or any other twitter.com URL).

In case you didn't know: When you’re in a web browser, and want to type .com, just tap and hold the . button to the right of the space bar, and you’ll see a popup menu which lets you choose from a number of top-level domains: as you can see below, I can choose from […]
It's true. Eric Chemi, head of research for Bloomberg Businessweek, pulls an amazing stat. iPhone sales in the last year exceed all revenue to Microsoft, Amazon, Comcast, or Google. The iPhone alone outsells Coca-Cola and McDonald's, perhaps the world's two most famous brands, combined.
Just pull to the left to reveal the timestamps. Khoi has more.
Does anyone have any experience with Screens? I'd love to try it out, but at $19.99, it exposes one of the flaws with the App Store - there's no real way to demo the application.
The comments here are about 50/50. I've not had too many problems with Apple's maps, but just today in San Antonio it failed to properly identify the location of a Texas Land & Cattle. It was off by several miles. Outdated info? No - the place has been here for years.
This about sums it up.
