Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

 
 

Beam Photos Between iOS Devices Using iPhoto

Maybe they put it in the $5 app and not the free one as an enticement to buy the $5 app?

But if you need the $5 app, you won't be able to rely on being able to use it with any particular person, which will significantly cut down on the utility of having the feature at all.
