Trackpad Problems

I have talked to people that have problems with the trackpad on their MacBook Pro being too sensitive and just generally not working well. If you are one of these people or know someone who is then this article might provide some relief.

BusyContacts

In a previous article I covered BusyMac’s BusyCal application. I want to present BusyCal’s other half (and in my opinion the better half) BusyContacts. As you might have guessed, BusyContacts is an Apple Contacts replacement, and a very good one at that.

The Option Key

The Option Key (⌥ ) on the Mac is like a “Swiss Army Knife” modifier key. In the old days it was referred to as the “Open Apple” key. This is a great article on ways to use the Option Key.

Alert Volumes

In keeping with my previous article on adjusting and eliminating system sounds you might want to give this article a read. Especially if you need to adjust sound during presentations. Can’t count how many times I have seen people’s systems sounds (and screen savers!) interrupt their presentations.

I just got tired of the look and wonkiness of Apple’s Contacts and iCal applications. So, I have ventured out into BusyCal and BusyContacts and am very glad I did.
