If Apple would just add eSATA already, the BlacX could be fast, too.

@wooliegeek That about sums it up. I prefer reliable. Speed is not critical since I'm usually copying to/from a notebook drive, anyway.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to wooliegeek

@rentzsch None that I've found except using a BlacX instead. :-(

@rentzsch I've traced freezes to the NewerTech Voyager.

Not very smart of iTunes to try to sell me MobileMe when it's already syncing a MobileMe account with my phone.

I'm aware that it has all sorts of design flaws, but Scripting Bridge is pretty sweet for controlling your own app.

@danwood For me, at least, disk image passphrases are much longer, so being able to toggle is helpful. The frameworks make it hard, though.

So what's the deal with MacMerc? It's still down.

Just got an e-mail from someone wants to download the Jaguar version of @dropdmg.

I definitely prefer the look of the 2G: (more) flush screen, non-dust-attracting back, matte side buttons. 3G[s] more comfortable to hold.

iTunes forgot which mail accounts had syncing disabled.

@fab1An iPhone app icons used to move to different spots on the home screen each time you updated.

...and GPS. So they're doing well. iPhone 3.0 wishlist: SDK and App Store improvements, even better camera, better carrier.

via Twitter for iPhone

My wishlist from when iPhone 1.0 was released: stable home icon positions, SDK, better camera, copy/paste, record audio/video, more storage.

@danielpunkass Good point. IE 8 is the funnest browser ever.

@littleknown I'm not sure. Do many people use Safari Win? Or Opera?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to littleknown

Not a single area in which Firefox is better than IE: http://tinyurl.com/mj38ly

So far the only problem with iPhone OS 3.0 is that it no longer likes to auto-acquire my WiFi network.

Updated to OmniFocus touch 1.5. It's nice to be able to search!

via Twitter for iPhone

I have so many files, with so much variance in size, that I wish SuperDuper showed progress by the number of files instead of by GB.

via Twitter for iPhone

Really liking the Google auto-complete suggestions in Safari 4.

via Twitter for iPhone

@retrophisch Maybe you just look like you know where things are.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to retrophisch

@leebennett Yes, I believe they got swept in the 96 finals.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@tbridge Let me know when you find one that's awesome. :-) I expect them to do everything in their power to fleece me.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tbridge

@leebennett Yes, AT&T is actually being nicer than they had to be.

@mgrimes I haven't configured any special default, and it always shows the tab bar unless I hide it using the View menu. Same as Safari 3.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes Do you mean if you had the tab bar hidden prior to opening the second tab? That seems reasonable to me--consistent with toolbars.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes I'm not seeing that. In what way are they adjusting the window size?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mgrimes

Happy to see the Safari tabs back inside the window.

Got a scare when the Finder reported that some of my AppleScripts were saved in data-fork format. Turns out the Kind field is wrong.

Thanks for the links to Choosy and Highbrow!

Wondering if there's a good way to click a URL in Mail and have it open in a non-default Web browser.

@justin Do you have the FileMate one, too?

Aperture can't seem to import files with tildes in the name.

via Twitter for iPhone

Today is log download day. Current tool of choice: Transmit. Works great, but files on my server shouldn't be called "their stuff."

@jamesthomson I'm glad your friend had his say, too. That's the elephant in the room, IMO.

@marick Yes, and We gets bonus points for being written first.

@fraserspeirs This particular build (precompiled SQLite and PCRE, no docs or unit tests) took just over 4 minutes on the old drive.

via web in reply to fraserspeirs

@leebennett It's still considerably slower than a desktop drive, though.

via web in reply to leebennett

@leebennett I had been using a 5400 RPM 500 GB drive, which is about the same as a 7200 RPM 320 GB one. But now there's 7200 RPM 500 GB.

via web in reply to leebennett

SpamSieve's build time reduced 35% after switching to 7200 RPM drive.

@danielpunkass NSPredicate is (probably) slow and not type-safe. But soon we'll have blocks!

@fraserspeirs NSFastEnumeration barely helps readability because with macros you can write: foreach(FKUser *, user, self.contacts)

Spot-checking the built on my 12-inch PowerBook. I can't believe how dim screens used to be.

That's odd: these spammers actually seem to be using GNU Mailman. So I got the monthly reminder and unsubscribed.
