Adam & Tonya Discuss Working Together on MacNotables -- In the most recent episode of our group MacNotables podcast, we did something a little different. Since only Tonya and I were on the line to talk with Chuck Joiner, we ended up discussing what it's like to work with one's spouse in the Mac industry and how we divvy up the various tasks involved with running TidBITS and Take Control. For instance, Tonya takes care of the financial end of things, whereas I'm the network administrator. Since we hadn't prepared for the topic, it ended up being an extremely unusual and far-ranging conversation. We frequently receive comments from people who are surprised we can work together, or who can't imagine what it would be like to work with a spouse, but for us, it's just how our lives work. Give it a listen! [ACE]
Springy Dock Tricks
If you drag a file and hover over Dock icons, various useful things happen which are similar to Finder springing. If it's a window, the window un-minimizes from the Dock. If it's a stack, the corresponding folder in the Finder opens. If it's the Finder, it brings the Finder to the foreground and opens a window if one doesn't exist already. But the coolest (and most hidden) springing trick is if you hover over an application and press the Space bar, the application comes to the foreground. This is great for things like grabbing a file from somewhere to drop into a Mail composition window that's otherwise hidden. Grab the file you want, hover over the Mail icon, press the Space bar, and Mail comes to the front for you to drop the file into the compose window. Be sure that Spring-Loaded Folders and Windows is enabled in the Finder Preferences window.
