I explain, once again, the biggest security hole on Mac today. And, this time, why you need to watch out each time you get a new Mac, too.
Be very careful how you install Seagate’s drive diagnostic software on Mac, even if downloading from their own web site.
For at least a full month, I made a conscious decision to cease all social networking. I was busy trying to build a product, but I also learned some things about how and what I was social networking about. I learned some nifty things about what I missed, and what I should not miss doing [...]
Every once in awhile, a WordPress plugin just deserves a shout out. Today’s is Login With Ajax. It got my largest donation to a WordPress plugin yet. What the plugin does, is converts the WordPress registration (wp-signup) and login (wp-login) processes. As the name implies, it converts them into AJAX instances that run on the [...]
If you install the latest Java update, released yesterday, on OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion, it will not only delete the Java web-plugin, but it will delete something you didn’t expect… Java Preferences.app. Apple did make note of this, in the security descriptor notes for the update, but nowhere in the notes [...]

Today I had to help yet another confused/frustrated person deal with the fact that they, unaware to themselves, possessed multiple Apple IDs. I personally have four Apple IDs that I have to juggle. Apple’s iTools/.Mac spawned one (which I’m now stuck with because of the iTunes Store purchases being tied to it… iTunes and iTools [...]
To my surprise, it appears that Neat Company has made the latest version of NeatWorks, Neat 4.0, free software. NeatWorks (now apparently renamed just Neat for Mac) is great software that I rely on daily. It is designed to work with a select few scanners, but can provide Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for any TIFF [...]
TiVo Stream is a $129 add-on for your TiVo Premiere. It is a hardware H.264 encoder that gives your TiVo the horsepower to sling live/recorded television to your mobile devices in real time. $129 is not cheap. It’s the cost of a Slingbox (and a higher-end model, at that). You can get an old Slingbox [...]
