Option-Click in Scroll Bars for Jump Scrolling

In Mac OS X in general, and thus in most native Mac OS X applications, hold down the Option key and click anywhere in a window's scroll bar to jump to that spot (rather than scrolling one screen). If you like this behavior, you can make it the default in the Appearance preference pane. For "Click in the scroll bar to:" select "Jump to here."

 
 

Dropbox for iOS Now More Photogenic

Send Article to a Friend

Dropbox, the freemium cloud storage and sync service, has released version 2.0 of its free Dropbox iOS app, featuring a fresh new design, easier photo browsing, and the capability to upload files to a specific folder. The redesigned app offers a new, minimalist icon and a streamlined interface.


The stand-out new feature is the Photos tab. In it, you can see all your photos stored in Dropbox and flick through them in full-screen mode, without having to dig through folders. If storage space on your iOS device is cramped, this feature could be a godsend, since it makes it easier than ever to keep at least a subset of your photo library in the cloud.


 

CrashPlan is easy, secure backup that works everywhere. Back up
to your own drives, friends, and online with unlimited storage.
With 30 days free, backing up is one resolution you can keep.
Your life is digital; back it up! <http://tid.bl.it/code42-tb>

Yet another useless feature for those of us who tend to keep Location Services turned off most of the time in order to preserve battery life. Why must app makers insist on disabling certain features without Location Services on, when it should be the choice of the user whether one's data is geo-tagged? There are about a dozen apps in my Location Services list which have Location permanently turned off, as I can see no reason why my location would ever be needed, except for data mining by the app maker/advertisers.
Now if we could only get photos out of Dropbox & into IOS Photos for use in iMovie, etc!
