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.

O2 Clarifies UK iPhone Data Limits

The UK cell carrier O2 will not enforce a "fair usage" policy on iPhone data plans, the British newspaper The Telegraph reports. Although I could never nail down precisely what "fair usage" meant in this context, the Telegraph writes that O2 was planning a 200 MB per month limit (see "iPhone Launch Set for UK and Germany, with Murky Data Plan," 2007-09-20). That limit has now been lifted, and the contract terms on the O2 Web site changed.

The O2 head said, "Customers find 'unlimited with limits' confusing," which shouldn't be a surprise. Verizon Wireless just settled with the Attorney General of New York over the firm's advertising its cell data service as unlimited, while limiting customers to 5 GB per month and restricting permitted activities in certain ways.
