If you're getting an error code -49 when exporting a movie from iMovie, turn off Time Machine temporarily.

Correct me where I'm wrong. There's a strong biological component to homosexuality in human beings. Nature (or "choice") plays a small role.

What to Do When Xcode Beachballs: Shift+Ctrl+Alt+Cmd+Period Love it!

At first glance you might think "gee, I need to get some of those shoes!" But in reality, I'm again reminded of a study where people jumped from various heights onto a bed of cushioning below. The cushioning was the same, but when told the cushioning was firmer, they'd land more softly, and when told […]

A good article: Designing the Packaging-Free Future | Wired Design | What has impressed me about Apple for the past ten years is that they're relentlessly reducing packaging while almost simultaneously improving (or at least maintaining) the "unboxing experience."

Holy cow. This makes Parker on Leverage look small time.

Pebbles are Shipping

Pebbles are shipping! And here's the review from The Verge. I don't know when my two will ship (I have an arctic white and a jet black coming), but I hope they ship soon. 🙂

Alternative Browsers

BTW, since I mentioned Safari yesterday, I've looked at other browsers that still exist for Mac OS X. I'm hoping the comments can fill with others. Of course, many people know about OmniWeb. Camino is still around, as is, oddly, iCab. Those are the first three that sprang to mind, but I imagine there are […]
