Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

Audio Hijack Pro 2.9.12

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack Pro 2.9.12, a fairly significant update to the audio recording program. According to the release notes, the new version no longer requires relaunching Safari in 32-bit mode to capture audio as long as Instant On is installed, can capture audio from Google Chrome and Firefox with no additional setup, and can record to the WAV audio format. A number of minor bugs have also been fixed, and preliminary support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion has been added; currently the app requires Mac OS X 10.6.0 or later. ($32 new, free update, 6.2 MB)

Here's hoping this upgrade works w/ OS 10.6.7.

There's no reason to think it shouldn't, given that 10.6.7 is the most common version of the OS out there right now. (And it does here.)
