"You may have noticed that iOS 5.1 changed the behavior of the lock screen camera compared to it's predecessor, this has caused some confusion as to how it works compared to iOS 5."

Oh I like this update and how it improves the camera access, what are your thoughts?

So, How Do You Get a Job With Apple?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Talk" @ 04:00 AM

"For some people, getting the chance to work for Apple seems like one of the coolest jobs on the planet. Being surrounded by everything Apple. Super discounts on iMacs. Talking to customers about how incredibly magical the products are. If that all sounds awesome to you then go ahead and disregard the fact that it's easier to get into Harvard than to get hired by Apple. Here is Cult of Mac's first-hand look at how the Apple hiring process plays out."

Surprisingly the blogger from Cult of Mac got pretty far in the process. I found this an interesting read, especially in that he actually was given an interview after they knew he was a writer for Cult of Mac. If you are planning on getting a job with Apple, or at least exploring it as an option, this does offer some good tips. And if you are just curious, its worth the read.

Find Out How Podcast

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 10:00 AM

"For some time, Apple has given the Designated Family Tech Support Personnel among us a small reprieve with its "Find out how" selection of tutorial videos. While they don't really tackle inevitable questions like "was deleting ~/Library/Keychains a bad idea?," they serve as succinct primers for The Way of the Mac and Apple's various apps and services."

You can still go direct to Apple and view the video series, or you can head on over to iTunes and download a podcast. Just search iTunes for "Apple find out how" and you will get the list of nine podcasts that include iWork '09, MobileMe and iTunes.

Home Theater and Your Mac Mini

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Desktops" @ 10:00 AM

http://www.tuaw.com/2009/08/21/tuaw...i-home-theater/

"The Mac mini has always been the perfect form factor for a media center appliance (often called a Home Theater PC/HTPC). It's extremely small, almost completely silent and it can easily blend into an existing electronics shelf - or be hidden away completely."

This is a pretty complete article if you are interesting in setting up your Mac Mini for your home theater. It covers the hardware you have available, software choices, software settings and even remote options. The perspective is from someone that has just gone through the setup process, so at the very least it can help you avoid some of the pitfalls you might have encountered.
