Lion "Production" Day One: Xcode snafu

Lion "Production" Day One: Xcode snafu

The last (hopefully) last step of my migration to Lion was installing the latest public release of Xcode. Again I hit some snags. On first (and subsequent) launches, Xcode crashes with some undefined references to the iPhone SDK private plugin. The issue was finally resolved by re-installing iTunes 10.5 beta. It was Xcode 4.1.1 and […]

Finally bit the Lion bullet

Finally bit the Lion bullet

I finally installed Mac OS X Lion on my main drive today. A wee bit earlier than my original plan of installing Lion only after iCloud comes out. The reason is that I’m starting a new project and I’d better make use of the latest tools and APIs that are available to me. It wasn’t […]

Chrome is a hog, switching back to Safari

Google’s Chrome may be the fastest browser to date, but it does so by making everything else runs slower. Why? It’s such a memory hog, eating up almost twice the memory as Safari for the same web pages. If you also run other applications on the Mac, I suggest you use Safari instead of Chrome. […]

Fixing Mac App Store Missing Screenshots Issue

You’ve just updated your Mac OS X applications screenshots in the App Store. You’ve waited for a couple of hours to ensure that Apple have refreshed all their CDNs with your new copy of the screenshot and then you start the Mac App Store application and lookup your app’s page. Then you saw your screenshots […]

News Anchor grumo

After listening the Mixergy interview with Miguel Hernandez of Grumo Media, I’ve decided to give it a shot and create an explanatory video of News Anchor. As you can see for yourself, the style is ripped off directly from a grumo. Hey, imitation is a form of flattery, isn’t it? ;-) Let me know what […]

Smart Playlists not Syncing to iPod touch

Recently I gave my 80GB iPod Classic (Generation 5.5) to my girlfriend to help her to concentrate more at work. Music does help tune out unnecessary distractions that is typical of a cubical-style workplace (and open plan workspaces are worse). That leaves me with the 1st get iPod touch that I also use to develop […]

Safari crashes randomly and XCode crashes persistently.PC: Seems like you’re having a bad Vista day. Wanna get Windows 7 instead?Mac: […]
