Workflow favorite: GrabUp + PHP Directory Lister

Select a portion of your screen, upload to image hosting service, copy unique URI, paste in an email or instant messenger conversation. We have all exercised the same redundant process of sharing screenshots. Right? Some people utilize dedicated screenshot applications like LittleSnapper or Skitch to manage screens locally which also integrate features like uploading via […]

What you’ll find in my Leopard… and what you won’t

I had made plans for a proper break-down concerning the features, changes, and updates for Apple’s latest feline incarnation – 10.5 Leopard. Ultimately, I decided that there had been far too many of those posts that I couldn’t justify one of my own. Rather, I’ve decided – with proper motivation from a few individuals – […]

Controlling multiple Macs, locally and remotely

For anyone who owns more than one Apple computer, the thought of controlling two or more machines at the same time is surely something many people think of.

In an attempt to reinvigorate the classic After Dark screensavers, UNEAYsilence has compiled a Flying Toasters screensavers clone from way back when computer geeks wore pocket protectors, Windows was the de facto operating system, and cool […]

Practice safe computing, use a clone

Backup, backup, backup! The three most commonly uttered words from any experienced computer user to more care-free users. After moving to OS X as my sole computing solution, I mistakingly adopted the mantra that Apple products were rock solid, unwavering, trouble-free dream machines. For the most part – during the better part of my Apple […]

Blogging with TextMate

An exhaustive day of coding deserves a little down time reading through feeds, visiting favorite blogs, and taking a few minutes to address certain items on the virtual to-do list. One such task – which I have now crossed off the list – is acquainting myself with the integrated blogging bundle packaged into TextMate. So […]

My Dream App well under way

Phill Ryu – a recent recipient of the Apple Design Award – spearheaded a new movement for the Apple community in hopes of developing select users “dream apps”. The notion behind My Dream App is simple: thousands upon thousands of OS X users have ideas, yet lack the expertise or skill-set to code those very […]
