I have to admit, one of the most used features of my Windows 7 PC at the office is the drag to hot zones feature. Where by moving an applications window to a predefined area of the screen performs a specific action. For example, dragging the window to the top of the screen maximises it.
If you have a Mac, and an iPhone then M.H.A. have the perfect application for you! Airlock is a bluetooth device proximity sensor, which once linked to your iPhone will automatically lock your mac when you walk outside of the predefined radius. Not only does this work on the iPhone but it even works with the iPod touch.
The ever so nice chaps over at MacUpdate are offering a nice winter bonus.. For a limited time they have reduced the price of two of their popular software offerings.
One of Snow Leopards less useful and more annoying features is it’s over helpfulness when plugging in devices such as the iPhone. Automatically starting iPhoto like a Jack Russell tugging at your trouser leg wanting to import your camera roll’s contents. Each time I find my self closing the application down mutter “If I wanted you I would have clicked on you GRRR!” So I decided enough was enough, and disabled the feature. Now, you would expect there to be a checkbox inside the iPhoto application. You may be surprised to know that it’s actually inside a separate application if you launch the Image Capture application (from you applications folder) with your iPhone or camera connected you should see an option in the bottom left hand corner of the app, which is similar to Windows “What to do when” app. Here you are able to select an application to launch when Mac OS X detects the connection of the device. Or do what I do, and select do nothing! Don’t worry – it wont stop iTunes from launching! Just iPhoto.
Which is where Rowmote came in.
