Sep 1, 2014 - 1 Comment

Customize the iOS Dock and change it

The iOS Dock sits at the bottom of our iPhone, ipod touch, and iPad home screen, intended to hold the most commonly used apps for quicker launching. While it’s well known that you can customize the apps that are contained within the Dock, what’s lesser known is that you can actually reduce the number of apps visible from the 4 default, down to 3, 2, 1, and, if you really want to, 0 apps.

Sep 1, 2014 - 4 Comments

What if the Edvard Munch expressionist classic The Scream was really a reaction to a broken iPhone screen? What if A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte was modernized for the 21st century, what would that Sunday afternoon look like now? What if The Card Players were actually just two guys staring at their iPhone screens? And what if The Last Supper by Da Vinci was filled with the apostles fiddling around on their Apple gear?

Aug 31, 2014 - 4 Comments

Terminal in OS X Typically Mac users will retrieve the screen resolution of connected displays through the Displays system preference panel in OS X. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that approach, it’s easy and quick, but because it uses the graphical interface of OS X it’s not necessary helpful for scripting purposes or remote management through Remote Login and SSH connections.

Move Files While Keeping Permissions Intact with “Paste Item Exactly” in the Mac OS X Finder

Aug 28, 2014 - 6 Comments

Finder Cutting and pasting files within the OS X Finder is an easy way to move files and folders around on the Mac, particularly for Windows converts, but by default the cut and paste function changes permissions and ownership during the file move process. For the most part that is desirable, but if you are logged in as an administrator and are modifying another users files or folders, even the Guest user, you may wish to preserve file ownership and user privileges (permissions in unix-speak) when moving the documents around. OS X makes this simple through a hidden function called “Paste Item Exactly”, it’s a somewhat advanced feature in terms of need, but it’s accessible easily through the Edit menu.

Aug 27, 2014 - 3 Comments

Safari icon Safari Bookmarks default to saving their names as the title of a webpage or website. That means if a site has a long title, the bookmark name will be equally as long. For accessing bookmarks through the Bookmarks menu that isn’t too big of a deal, but when you’re using the Safari Favorites Bar, long names become truncated and often meaningless, thus renaming them can be a good idea.
