Revisions for Dropbox. Gives you easy versioning for your Dropbox files. I’ve wanted something like this for some time now.
Syndicate: an rss button for Safari. Daniel Jalkut’s Subscribe to Feed hasn’t worked right for me under Yosemite so I’m trying this one out. So far it has some nice features.
Apple filed a patent for using a USB-C connector as an universal connector including thunderbolt. No idea if that means they’ll do it. But it is interesting given some were predicting this.
- 41The story about a rumored MacBook Air with a single port has generated a lot of discussion the past few weeks. My favorite discussion was over at Ars and is still ongoing. I'll skip the discussion of the Air itself. While it seems like an odd design to me, I wouldn't put it past Apple…
Nice review of the Das Keyboard 4 Pro. I look at these every few years but I tend to use a lot of keys in my setup. I loved at old Northgate keyboard I used to use. I still like the keyboards Apple had before its current chicklet keyboards. I have a few of those stashed away.
Oluseyi on Tech is Dead. Really insightful analysis on how the whole tech business but especially Apple has changed. Analogy is probably car enthusiasts even as working on cars becomes tied to diagnostic computers and fewer and fewer things people can fix. The Apple Watch feels so alien to many of us because it’s Apple’s first steps outside of the general tech market. (I’d say it bridges the worlds, but definitely isn’t just tech)
Nice tips for finding untagged files at the command line.
Dan Moren over at Six Colors lists a few really good fixes for Notification Center. First let us set a time out for notifications (presumably either by app or global) The add the oft requested “clear all” button. Finally a sort feature.
“Silver” brings Apple’s Swift language to the .NET and Java worlds. It brings the language not the Cocoa libraries though. Sounds like they added exceptions to let Swift work with .NET or Java better. (Personally I think Apple should add exceptions too, but I know people at Apple really don’t like exceptions and use them just for a very limited set of errors)
You can turn Spotlight indexing for network drives from the command line. Thought more people knew about this. Well worth doing if you have a shared set of drives but don’t use OS X Server.
