Semper fudge.

It’s a good thing the TikTok team had an analog watch module to fall back on after Apple changed the iPod nano form factor. If they decide to keep doing the whole modular watch thing, they should at least be able to change up the form factor to something a little less clunky. So that’s a blessing in disguise, right?

De-dupe “Open With…”

A few weeks ago, I started seeing multiple entries for Pixelmator in the “Open With…” area of my Finder’s contextual menu. And while I thought it was weird, I didn’t find it too annoying. So I just ignored it.

Then, last night, I saw multiple entries for Simple Comic when I was trying to open a compressed file in another app. So I did a little digging and found this simple one-line fix over at IT Pixie:

Just copy & drop that into your terminal app of choice and let it run. Once it’s all done, Control + Option + Click the Finder icon in your dock and select “Relaunch”. Once the finder comes back, “Open With…” should be all clean.

I’m mostly saving this here for my own benefit, but maybe it’ll help at least one other person out there.

CMD + Conquer

When I started over at WP Engine earlier this week, a brand new MacBook Air came into my possession. It’s very pretty and lightweight and I kind of love it more than any other computer I’ve ever owned. So much so that I made the decision to break with my normal tradition and keep this hot little number sticker free.

That declaration only lasted about a day and a half tho…

Why? Well, I just came across the Command Bamboo Back from Grove. And I really want it. Like in a bad way.

It’s not a traditional sticker tho. It’s made out of real bamboo. And the shape carved into it actually changes that (somewhat ubiquitous) glowing Apple logo into something that I love so much that I put it on me forever.

Anyhow, they’ve got a bunch of clever and novel designs over there. If you’re looking for something a bit different, do yourself a favor and browse around their shop.

Omnibar? Wunderbar!

Since I’m downright stubborn about switching to Chrome, I was really happy to see that someone had tried to emulate its location bar with Safari Omnibar. It’s got a little way to go still, but it’s got enough promise for me to keep it installed.

Now all I have to do is break my habit of hitting CMD + L followed by a quick Tab to get me to the search field and I’ll be golden.
