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.


Airfoil 4.7.5

Send Article to a Friend

Rogue Amoeba has released Airfoil 4.7.5, which restricts searches to your local network to prevent possible issues with Back to My Mac and iCloud. The update also fixes an issue with failing to open a DVD in Airfoil Video Player, prevents a crash if the Transmit button gets pressed exactly as an output disappears, and provides some small improvements for Retina displays (a full Retina display update is yet to come). ($25 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 10.6 MB, release notes)
