iMovie 10.0 Sucks

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.

So I've got this unusual problem. Safari on my Mac Pro will not load (or, or any other URL). It's not the computer (and a messed up Hosts file or something), because other browsers work. It's not the installation of Safari or the OS, because a guest user account can access […]

The Day Hell Froze Over

We argued with Steve a bunch [about putting iTunes on Windows], and he said no. Finally, Phil Schiller and I said 'we're going to do it.' And Steve said, 'Fuck you guys, do whatever you want. You're responsible.' And he stormed out of the room." - Jon Rubinstein Steve wasn't always right.

Is Apple’s Maps Improving

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 Outdated info?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.
