- muttley: I remember ages ago I tried to get someone to buy an island with all of Google's money and establish a new country
- muttley: Except Google Island would be oddly boring and no-one would socialise - except for the civil servants who would have obviously fake "fun" during mandatory periods in the very prominent yet empty common areas
- muttley: Facebook Island would be chaotic and everyone would be out partying so much they wouldn't realise that the civil servants were rummaging through their stuff selling it to third parties
- muttley: Everyone on Apple Island would be very good looking and most stuff would just work perfectly. Except if you ever tried to step off the path you'd be tasered. And fat people would mysteriously disappear.
- hitherto: muttley: on Twitter Island all conversations would be mercifully short, but everyone would be yammering on about so much stuff you'd have no real idea of what was going on...
- hitherto: The other problem with Facebook Island: there'd be a very inviting-looking landing dock for you to reach the island, but a 30% chance that it's actually mined and will blow you to smithereens when you try to land.
If you’ve ever been annoyed at the large gaps between volume settings on a Mac, help is at hand:
If your keyboard has volume keys, [to] change your volume by smaller increments, hold down the Shift and Option keys as you press [them].
This trick also works for brightness. Meanwhile, shift alone also does something: you can temporarily toggle the “Play feedback when volume is changed” setting.
One thing I haven’t found documentation for (although I’ve not looked particularly hard for it) is that holding option with a function key brings up its preference pane. For example, option + brightness opens Keyboard, while option + volume opens Sound and option + Exposé opens, well, Exposé.
[Edit] I’m told this works on 10.5 as well, while option + key works back to 10.3.
Which is kind of weird.
What i think they mean is that they have a bunch of pre-letterpresed cards, printed with a design which you can slot your photo into. Your photo is then digitally printed over the top of the letterpressed card. Not sure how they could scale it otherwise…
If you watch the video of the keynote, about 22 minutes in is the introduction to the letterpress feature, including the video that’s embedded in iPhoto ‘11. That shows cards which take a photo as an insert on the inside.
Still, it’s an interesting choice of addition to the things you can print from the application.
