iPhone 4 is dropping my dad's calls where 2G didn't. Free case won't arrive until September (after 30-day return period). Nice camera.

Ultimate Status Bar is one of the more useful Safari 5 extensions. http://ultimatestatusbar...

@jablair Are there any xattrs on your test file?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to jablair

@fraserspeirs True, although the Mini makes it easy to get at the hard drive.

@bsneed Thanks for the link. I hadn't heard of Gity before. (Been using GitX.)

@jackholt Snow, distortions, flicker, sometimes half the picture blacks out. http://bit.ly/av4j9Y http://bit.ly/d8t5gZ

Seems even less likely that Apple will fix the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adapter now that they no longer sell a 30-inch display.

Any Mac devs updated to vBulletin 4 and liking it?

via Tweetie for Mac

Odd that you can't order an iMac with a Magic Trackpad but no mouse. Not that I would. Might > Magic.

Apple is finally marketing SSD as faster.

via Tweetie for Mac

@jimcorreia But that's better than pinching. :-)

via Tweetie for Mac

I guess Apple wants us to drop support for Tiger.

@siegel Smaller pixels is a problem if you want to use a two-display setup. The DPIs could be wildly different.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to siegel

@ccwells Yes, it's weird, but I've yet to hear of a better way to rate a product that's the best but that doesn't work for certain users.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to ccwells

@danielpunkass Well said. Jobs is immensely talented, but he's not the solution to every problem that Apple has. Best to deploy sparingly.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@ccwells I found the statistics unconvincing. CR itself said it loved the phone but for the antenna, so not much disparity to call out.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to ccwells

@ccwells Part of this shift is that Apple decided to fight the media instead of responding to its customers.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to ccwells

Notable that, unlike AnandTech, Jobs did not mention a grip-test comparison with the 3GS.

via Tweetie for Mac

I wouldn't be likely to call AppleCare if it already sounded like a widely known problem, c.f. Mossberg's review.

@retrophisch The tunnel-within-a-tunnel seems so long ago…

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to retrophisch

@pilky They're in the NSFileAttributes category.

@kch What problem are you trying to solve? For spam, if you've already read it on the phone you could delete it from the phone.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to kch

@kch Could be. If Mail doesn't think the messages are new, it won't apply the rules (including @spamsieve). As always: http://bit.ly/bZOKHZ

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to kch

@retrophisch Oops, I was thinking of Word. In Apple Mail you need to hold Control.

@luciuskwok Zeroing and restoring your SSD is not enough. And you can recondition the free space without reformatting. http://bit.ly/d3fPhO

@rentzsch Considered them but was not impressed, though I like most of the rest of FogBugz.

Odd how changing the search engine for one window in Safari changes the default in the preferences.

via Tweetie for Mac

Looks like this USB hub is dead. Too bad it's the one built into my display.

via Tweetie for Mac

@StephenFleming Yeah. Online ordering kept instructing to go to the store. And even then had to order and come back the next day. Odd.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to StephenFleming

@swgs Tried that many times, but the Web sites report a vague error and suggest going in to the store. Same with ordering by phone.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to swgs

Can't believe how hard Apple is making it for my dad to upgrade to iPhone 4. Has to got to the store in person twice, and none are nearby.

via Tweetie for Mac

I don't understand these vacation e-mails that are sent 4 months after the fact.

via Tweetie for Mac

@cabel I have a bunch from 2003 that are still open.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to Cabel

@pilky Yeah, I've been doing the new nibs in IB 3, and it's much more pleasant to use. Time to convert everything else over.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to pilky

@pilky As I recall, IB 3 was buggy for several of those years, so I was in no hurry to upgrade. I prefer stable tools to the shiny.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to pilky

@cortig It was working fine for me until recently. Time to write some shell scripts...

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to cortig

@pilky 1. The version of RBSplitView that I'm using. 2. Work to update lots of localized nibs and re-key the the .strings files.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to pilky

Looks like Interface Builder 2.5's menu bar editor is broken in Xcode 3.2.3 and/or Mac OS X 10.6.4.

via Tweetie for Mac

The iPhone is a lot more impressive than the mini microwave pizza.

via Tweetie for Mac

Entourage should not allow you to add the Junk category to address book contacts and then auto-assign it to messages from those contacts.

via Tweetie for Mac

@dnanian Would a clear coating on it be such a compromise?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to dnanian

@siracusa Basically they're redefining the problem as AT&T's fault.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to siracusa

Well, maybe that explains why my 3GS so often shows 4-5 bars and yet I can't make calls.
