Still waiting…. My name is Erik. My wife's name is Carey. I don't even have a "Carrie" in my phone's contacts, yet… that's how Siri insists on spelling it. So much for the "contextual" suggestions and autocorrections. I can't remember the last time I wanted to type "Erik" or "Carrie."

Sometimes it's just one tab ("Downloads"), sometimes it's two or three. Rarely is it ever more than one window. I leave them minimized almost all the […]

Unregistering iMessage

You can now Deregister and Turn Off iMessage if you switch to Android or something…

One time it essentially corrupted my Mail (I had to "restore" old accounts from Time Machine because Mail had lost track of all the accounts - the emails themselves were still there, of course), and the […]

PIxelmator 3.3

Pixelmator 3.3 is out. Unfortunately, you still have no clue what your foreground and background colors are…
