Avoid Simple Typos

If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.

Jeff Carlson Talks About Ive Talking to Time

Send Article to a Friend

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.
