Ben Ubois, creator of the popular Google Reader alternative Feedbin, has released its source code on Github. Ubois lists his reasons as wanting help from the community, desiring greater transparency, and ensuring that the service will survive even if he loses interest. However, on Hacker News, Ubois was quick to point out that he was comfortable open-sourcing Feedbin precisely because the service is making money. While the backend software is now technically free, the service still costs $3 per month. follow link
Two Shortcuts for App Exposé
If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.
