Single Time Machine Backups

Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.

Marco Arment’s Mega Review of Portable, Closed Headphones

Send Article to a Friend

Overcast developer Marco Arment wants to find the perfect pair of headphones, and in the service of that quest, he has acquired and reviewed 19 pairs of portable, closed headphones to identify the best in that category. Surprisingly, the oft-derided Beats Studio, which Arment credits for popularizing high-end headphones, wasn’t the worst of the lot. The winner in both sound quality and comfort might surprise you, as it was one of the least expensive models tested.favicon follow link

It may have been one of the cheapest when he wrote the review, but it jumped from $200 to $330 right around the time the review was posted.
