Mac and iOS developers are some of the nicest people around, and this year’s example of that is how Mike Piatek-Jimenez of Gaucho Software has organized numerous other developers to donate their entire sales for a single day — 20 December 2011 — to charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. So, if you’ve been thinking about buying any of the apps participating in Apps for Water (many of which are discounted, too), why not do it on 20 December 2011 as a way of helping the hundreds of millions of people around the world for whom clean drinking water isn’t a given? Kudos to Mike and the other developers participating in this promotion!
Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder
Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.
