Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

 
 

Jeff Carlson Talks About Ive Talking to Time

Our own Jeff Carlson wasn’t pleased with Time’s profile of Jony Ive. In a post on his blog, he describes the article as “ill-informed puff,” pointing out how the author, John Arlidge, compares Steve Jobs to a god, calls an assistant a “tech-head,” and lacks key knowledge about Apple. “I really do wish I knew why such high-profile, information-rich interview opportunities like this one are squandered by big magazines,” Carlson said.favicon follow link

The answer is in the prior article... Says Ive, “We’re surrounded by anonymous, poorly made objects. It’s tempting to think it’s because the people who use them don’t care..." Time is one of those uncaring businesses. Remember they are selling advertising, not magazines or information. If advertisers paid for space, the opportunity wasn't squandered.
