Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

iCloud is not for me, I don't use it for anything. Instead I use Dropbox, Fruux and several other apps over which I have complete control to accomplish things the way I want them accomplished. If I can buy an app direct from its developer, I always do, even if its available at the MAS. It's very unlikely from what I've heard so far that I'll be upgrading to the next system, I'll stick to Lion, sync my iPod Touch and iPad from iTunes and leave it at that.
