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.

Google Serving Itself DMCA Takedown Notices on Chrome Videos?

Send Article to a Friend

Update: It's all working now, so take a look at the videos to get a sense of what Chrome can do. -Adam

So I decided that even if Google's new Chrome Web browser is available only for Windows right now, I should take a look through the feature videos to get a feel for what's forthcoming for Mac users.

"One box for everything." Sounds great. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Gee, I wonder if Google served itself a DMCA takedown notice on the Tolkien reference.

"New Tab page." I'm in favor of that. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Hmm, perhaps Chrome's tabs are a bit too kinky for YouTube.

"Application shortcuts." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Grr...

"Dynamic tabs." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Oh, never mind.


Maybe I'll try again in a few minutes.
