So what are you waiting for? Take advantage of this fantastic offer now!
Tired of seeing this window pop up, and having to enter your password every time you use an app? But don’t want to open up all your apps for use?
Here’s a nice and easy fix for you, launch the Keychain Access application (/Applications/Utilities/Keychain Utility) locate the entry relating to the application you want to always allow. In this case, it’s Microsoft Messenger for Mac, double click on the entry to bring up the details window:
Now, select the “Allow all applications to access this item.” click on the save changes button, and enter your password when prompted. You should now find you will no longer be prompted to enter your password when using this application.
NB: The above method comes with it own pit falls, obviously this will now allow anything to have access to this keychain data without prompting you. Bear this in mind when you are authorising items.
If you are a keen believer in protected device usage (which you should be) and you employ a strict security regime including a strict firewall policy, you may find yourself constantly having to allow access to stock applications such as iTunes. This is because these applications are ‘codesigned’ to ensure the firewall only lets them through if, they have not been modified in anyway. So if you have installed any iTunes plugins, or modified iTunes in anyway, you will find this pop up will appear each time despite which option you choose.
To stop this for coming up, you will either need to reverse the modifications to iTunes or obtain a self sign certificate and sign it yourself.
If you’d rather reverse the modifications (Recommended) launch a terminal window (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and type in the following:
codesign -vvv /Applications/iTunes.app/
This will return one of the following results:
(Which actually suggests iTunes has not been modified, so if you get this at this stage – this tutorial will not help you)
Or you will get the following (particular files may vary):
So as you can see, the codesign application suggests the signed version of iTunes has been modified, therefore it’s no longer ‘signed’
To resolve this issue, launch a finder window location iTunes in your Applications folder, right click on it and click show contents. Now remove each of the files listed in the terminal window. It’s worth noting that removing the wrong files from this folder may well prevent iTunes from working all together. So you may want to either back them up somewhere or simply leave them in the ‘Trash’ until you are happy.
If you would prefer to leave iTunes in it’s modified state, then you will need to follow the Code Signing Guide over at Apples website
If the latest rumblings are to believed, Apple are to release a black unibody MacBook.
Sure, this Is not brand new on the Apple scene. However unlike the old black plastic one, this one is going to be black unibody .. Just like the silver ones available currently.
In my opinion, I think its a smart move! Im sure it will look fab in black!
All of you lucky ‘MobileMe’ members (me included) will be pleased to see this arriving in their inboxes over the next few days…
Dear MobileMe member,
We’d like to share some exciting news with you about iCloud — Apple’s upcoming cloud service, which stores your content and wirelessly pushes it to your devices. iCloud integrates seamlessly with your apps, so everything happens automatically. Available this fall, iCloud is free for iOS 5 and OS X Lion users.
What does this mean for you as a MobileMe member?
When you sign up for iCloud, you’ll be able to keep your MobileMe email address and move your mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.
Your MobileMe subscription will be automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After that date, MobileMe will no longer be available.
When iCloud becomes available this fall, we will provide more details and instructions on how to make the move. In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about iCloud.
The MobileMe Team
Personally – I can’t wait for this to arrive… Along with my copy of OS X Lion of course
