    Safari cmd-w tab behaviour

    Hi folks I am confused in Safari 4.0.4 (6531.21.10) on 10.6.2 as to the behaviour of cmd-w when i have tabs open. Sometimes it does as i want it to it shuts the tab, but often it wants to shut the whole window with multiple tabs in it. I can't seem to make any sense of when it does each...

    Google Wave

    Anyone else get into the wave? It is kinda fun, and I can see it has potential - not sure it is the email killer yet, but it is a step in the right direction, and email really needs to be replaced in my opinion. This video explains hwo it works in an amusing but somewhat NSFW way (uses...

    Safari 4 final - i miss the top-tabs!

    It is an odd thing, I hated them at first, the way the tabs were at the top of the window, but I got used to it real fast. Also it saved a little screen space, which is precious on my 13" macbook. Now back to the 'normal' tab display it looks...wrong. What do you folks think? Any chance...

    New find: the daily mash

    Someone sent me a link to this website yesterday and I've been in stitches ever since. Its an onion-like fake news site, but with a British spin and a foul mouth. WARNING - the site features bad language you might find offensive or not want to view at work. The Daily Mash Brown Demands New...

    NB - available only in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France and Spain, sorry those elsewhere This is yet another invite-bet, for an ad supported music streaming app. Its not bad I find, a short ad every 4-6 songs so far, and a very decent sized catalogue of music streamed in decent...

    Hey all. My parents are having an odd issue with their wireless, and I'm lost I think. They have ADSL connected via a Netgear DG834G v2 adsl modem/router/g wireless access point. My folks have two old 12" aluminium powerbooks, a 1ghz and a 1.5 ghz i think, both on the last 10.3 increment. A...

    Anyone installed iPhone 2.2.1?

    Before I take the plunge, has anyone installed this yet? Any problems? It is the first update available since I got the phone so I am not sure if the updates have the same occasional problems as system updates.

    Process 'Inkjet' has high VSIZE

    In Activity monitor I have a process called 'Inkjet', a child process of cupsd that shows over 2gb in VSIZE. Now my Activity Monitor mastery is somewhat limited, but I take it VSIZE is the amount of virtual memory a process uses. I have an A3 photo printer to which I print pretty large...

    My experiences on the dark side (PCs)
