Finder View Options HIG Abuse?

I was adjusting the icon view of my desktop today when I noticed some behavior that doesn't seem quite right. I typically keep things arranged by name (the last checkbox). The first checkbox is "Snap to grid." Checking the "Snap" checkbox dims (and de-selects) the "Keep arranged by" checkbox. Shouldn't these two items radio buttons […]

Madden 2007 on the Wii

I just read the preview and I'm excited! The use of the controller seems to be pretty great. Oh when oh when I can get my pre-order in, dangit?

I Despise Pirates Ownership

And this just about sums up why using only the past few days as evidence.

Scorecard 1.0 - an application a year in development (well, in calendar time, if you get the drift…) is now available. I've worked with Brad on this project for quite some time, and have been using it for months to keep track of my golf statistics. It works beautifully. There really are no comparative products […]
