Marcel Bresink has released TinkerTool 4.9, updating his under-the-hood customization system utility to support OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The new release also adds a setting to disable the rubber band effect that occurs when scrolling beyond the end of a view in both Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion, adds a setting to prevent unused applications from quitting automatically under Mountain Lion and Lion (covered more in depth by Matt Neuburg’s “Mountain Lion is (Still) a Quitter,” 2 August 2012), and enables TinkerTool’s icon to be replaced using the Finder.

Disinfect Your Keyboard
Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:
- Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
- Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
- Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
- Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
- Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.
