Apple Wireless Keyboard

Just a quick note about the new Apple Wireless Keyboard: It is notably more compact than its wired counterpart. More “laptop-like.” More “couch-top” like. This clearly was thought out as “hey, if we’re going to do a wireless keyboard, then what are people going to want to do with it?”

Clearly they’re going to want to sit on their couch and operate their Apple HDTV with it…

Ah, well that’s what I want to do anyway. With the addition of a trackpad, this would be a no-brainer.

It may be just me, but TextMate appears to be the crashy-est program in my arsenal of web development tools. It seems to regularly occur when bringing up dialog boxes, such as a find/replace box. This is starting to bum me out at close to 1 AM as I try to finish my homework…

Happy April Fool’s Day everyone!

Many have suggested over the years that WebKit should be abandoned in favor of Gecko, the browser engine with second-place market share according to studies like the Net Applications Survey.
