I've never used Keyboard Maestro. I like FastScripts, and use it quite a bit, but perhaps someone has an example of how they use Keyboard Maestro that will resonate with me. Do you use Keyboard Maestro? How? Someone, sell me on it. I'm interested, I just don't think it'll fit.

Lucy Li’s Golf Swing

She's 10, and qualified for the U.S. Women's Publinks championship.

FastScripts can now employ a background process to fire scripts if you enable a secret preferences setting: defaults write RSScriptingPreferSeparateProcesses -bool YES Sweet. No performance slowdown in several days of using it.

‘Arrested Development': Why Netflix's Revival Failed That's not the case with Netflix shows, which—thanks to the binge-viewing phenomenon—the conversation around appears limited to a narrow timeframe immediately after the release of the full season.

"A genius working alone," he says, "is invariably ignored as a lunatic." The second sort of specialist is a lot […]

Otellini on being asked to produce the chips for the original iPhone: The thing you have to remember is that this was before the iPhone was introduced and no one knew what the iPhone would do… At the end of the day, there was a chip that they were interested in that they wanted to […]

You know, I still haven't read more than about 20 pages of the Isaacson book on Steve Jobs. I read or listened to too many bad reviews, like this one, or this one, before I started the book, and had lost almost any interest I had in reading it. I will some day. When I'm […]

U.S. Now Paints Apple as ‘Ringmaster’ in Its Lawsuit on E-Book Price-Fixing According to the Justice Department, that e-mail is part of the evidence that Apple was the “ringmaster” in a price-fixing conspiracy in the market for e-books, a more direct leadership role than originally portrayed in the department’s April 2012 antitrust lawsuit against Apple […]

Why Marissa Mayer was really right, even if you hate hearing that fact. As I researched photography as a business and career, a funny thing happened. I realized that digital photography wasn’t making being a professional photographer easier or more lucrative, it was making it tougher. That’s because I wasn’t the only person who picked […]
