Interface Builder hidden gem?

Michael McCracken: “If I read this right, it means the door is open for easy automated access to bindings and maybe a way to make editing bindings easier.”

SubEthaEdit 2.5

The cool, collaborative text editor SubEthaEdit has been updated to 2.5—with a bunch of AppleScript enhancements (and more, of course).

One feature to expect in Leopard

Dustin MacDonald: “What will we see in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard? Windows Virtualization? Full Screen Applications? Don’t count your chickens, but I do want to point out one subject that apparently a lot of rumor sites have overlooked: resolution independence.”

…and statistics

ridiculous_fish: “The latest ‘OS X is slow’ meme to impinge on the mass psyche of the Internet comes courtesy of one Jasjeet Sekhon, an associate professor of political science at UC Berkeley. The page has hit digg and reddit and been quoted on Slashdot. The article and benchmark is here. Is there any merit to this?”

WebnoteHappy 1.0 released

MacHappy: “It is finally done. I’ve been feverishly working on WebnoteHappy, a bookmark manager with integrated note taking and tagging for Mac OS X, for the past few months.”

Congratulations to Luis!

Sandvox 1.0 Released

Karelia Software: “We did it! We’re now shipping Sandvox.”

How NetNewsWire 2.1 Reads Feeds

On I write about how NetNewsWire 2.1 reads feeds. The short answer: if you use NewsGator syncing, it downloads feeds from NewsGator. If you don’t use syncing, it downloads feeds from the original sources, just like always. You choose.

But of course I go into more detail. (Plenty more! I may be in a long-winded mood.)

Peppermint style for NetNewsWire

ollieman: “mint is pretty much the best thing to happen to websites since sliced bread. In addition to the wonderful features it sports, it’s also got one killer look. And I like that look a lot, so much that I decided to pay it an homage.”

Mac users

Rob Manuel, Mac switcher: “Mac users are better looking.”

Okay, maybe not the developers, but the users, sure. ;)

Red Sweater Blog: “Then I spotted a call to ‘CGPostError.’ Well, that’s interesting. A well-defined error reporting mechanism? The results of which the developer never sees?”
