Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

TidBITS Quoted in New York Times about (RED)

Send Article to a Friend

I may not be an expert in humanitarian issues, but my commentary about the (RED) project in the Staff Roundtable section of Mark Anbinder's news piece "New iPod nano Sees (RED)" (16-Oct-06) apparently caught the attention of journalist Michael Wines. In the Week in Review section of the 22-Oct-06 edition of the New York Times, Michael quoted me, writing: "'Call it capitalactivism or activicapitalism, but it would seem to be a new breed of convergence,' the technology expert Adam Engst wrote in TidBITS, a weekly Internet newsletter."

Although I suspect this will be the first and only time I'll be quoted in an article that leads with Madonna and talks about former president Bill Clinton, I rather like being in the Week in Review section, since it fits with my philosophy that the most important news and opinions are those that survive their initial burst of exposure to be recorded subsequently for posterity. So, thanks, Michael!
