@cbowns That's why I ran Aaron back in the day, but I like the Leopard look better than the iTunes look.

via Twitterrific in reply to cbowns

Why aren't there any hacks to bring brushed metal to Leopard, like there were to get rid of it from Panther?

@danielpunkass Maybe there should be an indicator on the old reviews from people who didn't buy...

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

@ddribin Yeah, that's kind of strange. NSWindowController and NSViewController do.

I'm happy with nearly every piece of Mac software I've bought. Some of the iPhone apps are great, but I wish I could return 2/3 of them.

PCalc works pretty well, but I don't like the button arrangement. I'd prefer a more HPish layout.

via Twitterrific

@stevenf OmniFocus, Air Sharing, WeatherBug.

@sethdill Not personally, but DropDMG talks to it so I have to stay up on the latest versions.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

Do the 30 formats include DiskDoubler? It used to be able to handle those, but support was removed several versions back.

via Twitterrific

I guess StuffIt 13 didn't sound very good. Do the compression improvements mean you have to upgrade to 2009 to expand archives?

via Twitterrific

@mhenders They don't even put the "8" in the name. :-(

via Twitterrific in reply to mhenders

Why does a renaming engine need to be database-backed? http://www.publicspace.n...

@ShawnKing Usually when something like that happens, the sender was in your address book. Check the log. http://tinyurl.com/j6zeq

Trying Stack Overflow.

@fraserspeirs Right. With the other reading, you wouldn't be able to download content from Flickr, NNW couldn't download feeds, etc.

via Twitterrific in reply to fraserspeirs

@fraserspeirs Doesn't 3.3.3 refer to code, not media?

via Twitterrific in reply to fraserspeirs

What happened to VersionTracker's developer interface? It seems much less capable than before.

via Twitterrific

My cookies still show up in Safari's preferences, but all the Web sites have forgotten me.

via Twitterrific

Still no find-within-page at the iTunes store. If only it were a Web page...

via Twitterrific

@danwood Select "All level n rows" in the drawer. Apply style.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

Air Sharing says it's iPhone.local, but it actually uses the the phone name in iTunes, like DataCase. Unlike DataCase, fails if ' in name.

via Twitterrific

Overall, the Air Sharing interface is very nice: landscape support, pinching the file list, remembering scroll position.

via Twitterrific

Air Sharing: Froze with 400K Web archive, Bonjour name doesn't work, uses WebDAV so no auto-show in the Finder's sidebar. Good help, though.

via Twitterrific

@mgrimes Any areas where DataCase is better than Air Sharing?

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes Right. I'm just tired of switching. FileMagnet, MobileFinder, Files, DataCase, Air Sharing,...

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes Is it just a matter of time before all these apps support the same formats?

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@danielpunkass How can the door be opened when Apple controls FairPlay?

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

@gruber To me it sounds like the opposite of stilted: informal, kiddy.

via Twitterrific in reply to gruber

And is a physics genius the person you'd ask for music recommendations? Oh well, I guess it's like 64-bit highways.

via Twitterrific

I'm sure they could come up with another localized filesystem hack so that a .app wouldn't be necessary. :-)

via Twitterrific

@Twitterrific The other annoying thing about the alert is that it opens the page in Safari, instead of in the nice built-in browser.

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

@Twitterrific Bad Apple. How about doing what Exposure does? Or put it inline (like The Deck) instead of an alert?

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

Surprised that Apple chose to dilute their Genius brand. Or do they plan on replacing the real-live geniuses with an expert system?

via Twitterrific

Right now: go on a trip with a little MacBook drive, buy some content, if your disk fills up you have to make a backup or throw it away.

via Twitterrific

@georgedick I think in practice people wouldn't re-buy often. It's a safety net that would encourage sales.

via Twitterrific in reply to georgedick

@Twitterrific Can you explain, or is that covered by NDA?

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

iTunes should let you re-buy content for free, as with iPhone apps. Who wants to store and backup GBs of HD content locally?

via Twitterrific

@Twitterrific I don't see that mentioned in the list of new features.

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

@Twitterrific Stop alerting me about your other great iPhone apps, which consist of yourself and your premium version.

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

@dsandler So that it can show the appropriate RTF file depending on your language.

via Twitterrific in reply to dsandler

@cbowns Yeah, not sure why I need to update QuickTime to play the new video content. DRM goodness? iTunes itself works, however.

via Twitterrific in reply to cbowns

@fetjuel That was sensible once upon a time. Using the Symbol font was a pain, and it messed up searching.

via Twitterrific in reply to fetjuel

Hey, I don't need to restart after installing iTunes 8.

via Twitterrific

@fetjuel The ASCII ones aren't real inch and foot marks.

via Twitterrific in reply to fetjuel

The Nike+iPod uses curly apostrophes and double quotes instead of actual minute and second marks.

via Twitterrific

Today I learned that even adding an address to Exchange's safe list doesn't mean it won't mark messages from that address as spam...

via Twitterrific

Fetch, Interarchy, and Transmit: only Interarchy tries to show the progress of uploading a folder, but its display/estimates are buggy.

via Twitterrific

@peternlewis I've been getting that since yesterday trying to update apps.

via Twitterrific in reply to peternlewis

Color issues solved, but I think there's an OS bug here. http://tinyurl.com/5wpc5f

via Twitterrific

Why doesn't the color in Aperture's Viewer match the color in Full Screen?

via Twitterrific

@danwood I'm not usually a fan of HTML e-mails, but yours look great.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

Phone line down. This would be a good time to have NetShare.

via Twitterrific

@joconor No. This was a crash report from a customer using 9.0.x.

via Twitterrific in reply to joconor

Another crash due to Flash.
