Fixscreen: AppleScript to fix Fast User Switching Color Bug

Well over a month ago, I reported on the color profile problems I was experiencing on my new iMac. Basically, whenever I enabled fast user switching and actually switched between accounts, my color profile would change off of the nicely calibrated settings to some odd profile that wasn't even in the...

Mac mini Core Solo: The good stuff and a peek inside

Despite my previous two posts on the topic, there are things to like about the Mac mini, and so I've decided not to return the machine. I still think it is overpriced and I also maintain that the Front Row performance over Bonjour is shoddy at best. However, if you keep all your media on the Mac...

Mac mini Core Solo: Not a good switcher machine

I'm getting a lot of comments on last night's review of the Mac mini Core Solo, and a lot of Mac faithful are saying that the review is too harsh, that I'm being too negative, and that the majority of the problems would appear to be software glitches, not hardware. They wonder why I am currently...

It may surprise you, based on my initial and following response to the news of the new Mac mini, that I acquired one for myself. My initial reactions were largely in response to the elevated price of the entry level model in comparison to the new features offered. Nevertheless, I like the mini as a...

Front Row and iPhoto Updates too...

I saw Dave's post about the updates, and so I launched Software Update and found a few that he didn't mention: Front Row Update 1.2.1 and iPhoto update 6.0.2. All I have to say is: bonjour! Update: looks like Dave got the iPhoto update in there in an update to his post while I was writing this...

This week's Diggnation on Macs

*sigh* That was a funny episode. I just finished watching the latest episode of Diggnation, the video podcast associated with Digg. Usually the show is amusing, but this week cohosts Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht hosted the video podcast in a bar in front of a live audience and the ending became very...

Who knew that the new movies in the iTMS would *really* be yesterday's big news?

Yesterday morning, I posted a prediction that proved incorrect. Apple didn't announce movies in the iTMS to be the big announcement of the day. Nevertheless, I feel that the Academy Award Nominated Short Films appearing in the iTMS yesterday actually ended up being the biggest news of the day. As I...

Apple Special Event Chatcast Extavaganza

Scott'll be posting any news we glean from today's event, nicely and neatly in a separate post for those of you who detest our chatcasts, and Engadget has Ryan Block on the scene, but for those of you who love reading us ramble on, drooling over the day's announcements and being as snarky as snark...

Academy Award Nominated Short Films point to movies to be the announcement of the day

Here's my thinking: This morning in the iTMS, along with some Bravo shows, we received some Academy Award Nominated Short Films. Short films? So what? We already have Pixar shorts! you retort. Ah-ha! See! These are non-Pixar films in the iTMS. The first. Kevin Rose of Digg fame didn't post...
