  • hoping iCal in Snow Leopard has a similar UI to the iCal in Tiger. So much more useful in the Tiger ver. #
  • Another tip I tell new Mac users is to set the print dialog to expanded by default – Apple, why isn't this the default? http://bit.ly/7Sxio #
  • Looks like Snow Leopard will be shipping this Friday. *ALL* Mac users should get this. $29 is nothing for an OS upgrade. #
  • Snow Leopard *will* speed your Mac up, make it more reliable and it will be more secure. MS still hasn't figured out how to do that yet 🙂 #
  • Wish the Apple store would have told me a Signature is required for delivering my laptop. I would have given them my work address. #
  • The Levenger Margin Pad Backer has become a must have for my workstations. It's so useful for quick notes and todo's http://bit.ly/14nNug #
  • All the refinements in Snow Leopard: http://bit.ly/laHuu #
  • Errr… that Snow Leopard refinement link s/b: http://bit.ly/NKupx #
  • AP NEWS: Michael Jackson's Death Ruled a Homicide http://bit.ly/2ldR2U Propofol isn't something you get from Walgreens. http://bit.ly/lKZcC #
  • So nice to have my laptop back. Everything but the screen, HD and DVD drive is new. It even smells, and feels like a new machine 🙂 #
  • RIP Sen. Kennedy – you will be missed… #
  • If you have a Mac laptop, BUY the AppleCare! It's about the only extended warranty that consumer reports recommends. #
  • My recent experience with AppleCare was stellar. Told them what was wrong, and they said they would fix it for free. Highly recommended. #
  • TextExpander: Now on your iPhone. Pretty neat app, with great possibilities. http://bit.ly/EZvRS (via @smokingapples) #
  • Mac devs are going crazy trying to get their apps compliant for Snow Leopard. Apple is shipping a month early. #
  • RT @SmokingApples: Camtasia for Mac released: Professional screen recording made easy http://bt.io/981 bg: this looks good.. #
  • Apple releases a slew of Mac OS X 10.6 knowledgebase documents: In anticipation of a fe.. http://bit.ly/ZzcQB #MacFixIt (via @mac_fix_it) #
  • My Snow Leopard shipment originated in Middletown, PA, left at 1p, and is already in NJ. I didn't think FedEx pkgs. left until after 5p. #
  • It feels like almost all my 3rd party apps have had an update in the past week. What changes do Mac devs have to do to work with Snow L. ? #
  • It looks like Snow Leopard's "Text substitution" competes with TextExpander? I hope Smile On My Mac does a comparison. I love TextExpander #
  • CRAZY SOCIAL HACK: Credit unions falling for low-tech social engineering hack http://digg.com/d312FzN (via @Jason) #
  • Snow Leopard is in the house! Time to upgrade the laptop!! #
  • Install of Snow Leopard shows port 80 traffic to swscan.apple.com – probably getting the latest incompatible SW to shove aside. #
  • Snow Leopard Install: "Less than a minute" remaining has been showing for about 5 min. now 🙂 #
  • Snow Leopard: Argh! Spotlight is re-indexing the drive. Can't really test the speed increase until that's done. I'm impatient. #
  • Snow Leopard: One thing I notice right away is that the icons in the menu bar have much less space between them. More room for more icons. #
  • Snow Leopard: Much, much "snappier" – Launching Safari is very fast, as well as task switching. Just wish all my 3rd party apps worked. #
  • Snow Leo. reports disk sizes in 'base10' math, which is what HD manuf. always report in. Leopard reports in base2. Less support calls now. #
  • Hard to believe but true about teen suicide…Paul Saffo tells shocking truth: http://bit.ly/11kwyY (via @SteveLeveen) bg:Very Sad indeed.. #
  • The performance of Snow Leopard makes it feel like I just upgraded my computer with faster hardware. It's that good. (2nd gen. MBP) #
  • Snow Leopard seems to handle VM much better. I usually have a huge swap by now, but it is still less than 120MB. Usually it is 3GB by now. #
  • Heads-up ti all SuperDuper users RT @dnanian A quick debriefing at Shirt Pocket Watch re: v2.6 – http://www.shirt-pocket.com/blog #
  • Oh man, the GMEN need some wide receivers – Eli is ready. Steve Smith burned the d-backs, and dropped the ball on a post route. #
