  • Well, Hal­loween is nigh upon us, so maybe it's time for a scary story. Cir­cle the camp­fire, crack open the marsh­mal­lows, and pre­pare for a tale of unmit­i­gated horror. Okay, not really unmit­i­gated hor­ror — let's try "mild dis­com­fi­ture" for size. I had [...]

    Let's talk about Mobile Device Man­age­ment, and why it's increas­ingly becom­ing some­thing that you can't ignore if you're using an iOS device in business. When Apple rolled out Pro­file Man­ager in OS X v.10.7 it added a sorely-needed com­po­nent to iOS — [...]

  • So, for those of you who watched the WWDC keynote, and jumped for joy when the new Cal­en­dar inter­face was revealed. I have some more good new. They fixed Con­tacts as well. Not sure what prompted the rever­sal, but I for one am [...]

  • This com­ing Wednes­day, May 15th, we're going to be doing a pre­sen­ta­tion of POSLavu at the Apple Store on State Street.   We don't tra­di­tion­ally do a lot of pub­lic pre­sen­ta­tions; partly because we're too busy scur­ry­ing hither and yon work­ing with [...]

  • Some of the most inter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tions that Seth and I have with clients and fel­low IT admin­is­tra­tors are all about secu­rity; more par­tic­u­larly the chal­lenges that come with bal­anc­ing strong pass­words with pass­words you can actu­ally remem­ber, and how to man­age [...]

  • While copy­ing a pretty gar­gan­tuan amount of data from one drive to another today, I noticed that in Moun­tain Lion, the default cre­ation date of a folder that's in the process of being copied is Jan­u­ary 24th, 1984. This, as any rea­son­ably nerdy [...]
