Peter Nixey: Dear Apple, let’s talk about photos →
This this this. peternixey: We’ve been managing our photos together for almost a decade now. Things were nice and simple at the start and we both knew what to expect from each other - I pulled my photos off my camera on the computer, imported them into iPhoto and arranged them. Life was good. But then you came and…
TarenSK: DOJ admits Aaron's prosecution was... →
tarensk: The DOJ has told Congressional investigators that Aaron’s prosecution was motivated by his political views on copyright.

What to install on your new Mac (and learn to use)
Here’s my setup. These should all be easy to find via Google. These are all login items on my Mac: Boom = makes your speakers louder. $10ish. HyperDock = lets you move and resize windows much more quickly Alfred = very fast launcher for apps and docs. (Replaces Quicksilver, which I used to use.) TextExpander = text substitution. There are now some great free alternatives if you...

A quite secure asynchronous way to send a password privnote = secure page. You type in a message, send me the auto-generated link, I click and read the message, and poof: the message self-destructs a minute after I open it. An even more secure, verging on...

Is this the best tool like this? It’s certainly the most delicious’d.
Email tools I want
It should be easy to switch into these inbox views: Sort out emails sent from machines. This should be clear from email headers. I should be able to choose a “people only” view and a “machines only” view. Emails from my contacts; emails not from contacts—and also “emails from my top contacts” (with a slider to choose how many of those contacts). The most...
Is Down for Everyone or Just Me down for everyone, or just me? Specifically: when I put in MacApper.com, it responds “Huh? doesn’t look like a site on the interwho.” But that certainly is (was?) a site on the interwho! Rats.

This looks handy. Could it compete with King Dabbleboard?
Which hosting providers (and media hosts) screw...
Simple idea for an experiment. Register a trademark (or pick one you already own). Put the same piece of content on a bunch of hosts that uses the mark in order to criticize it—for example, if Wiklerpedia were trademarked, I could put up a bunch of sites that say “Wiklerpedia sucks! Boo Wiklerpedia!” Put my Wiklerpedia hat back on and send cease-and-desist letters to...
