Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

This week I'll make like a toggle switch and flip-flop. First I said the AppleCD 300 was impossible to find, then I heard from a bunch of people who had seen them and my local dealer had some, but this past week I've received agonized requests asking what strings I pulled to buy one. Sorry folks, I didn't pull any strings other than lining up early. The drives are shipping, though clearly many dealers don't have them. If it's any consolation for those of you waiting, I like my AppleCD 300 a lot.
