Thanks to my birthday a few weeks back, I had some gift cards to various retailers. I decided to put a couple of them towards stuff for my Playstation 3:
- Dualshock 3 Controller – Now I have two controllers, for whenever my wife wants to make a fool out of herself or when I have company over.
- Playstation 3 Charge Base 2 – Instead of having USB cables lying all over the place, I purchased a charge station to keep the cable clutter to a minimum. Added bonus of not having to turn the PS3 on in order to charge the controllers.
The controller I have in my possession right now. I had to order the charge base and will probably get it later this week.
Looks like Mac users who have the latest OS X 10.5.3 update and either an iPhone or iPod touch can now sync their contacts between Address Book and Gmail.
This sounds great, except for the fact that you must have an iPhone or iPod touch to do this. I agree with Daring Fireball, why is Apple and/or Google limiting this feature to computers that sync with iPhones and iPod touches?
If you need to clear your entire print queue in Mac OS X for whatever reason, there is a simple terminal command you can type to do the job.
- Launch Terminal
- Type cancel -a -
All print jobs in the print queue should now be gone!
I have only tested this in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. I assume it will work in 10.4 Tiger as well.
Apparently Bank of America just did some upgrades to their online banking web site. Thanks to Firefox 3, I feel even more secure now:
The site identification button now shows up green when I log into my online banking page. They also now use 256-bit encryption.
It will be much harder for Bank of America customers to by mistake log into a phishing site, especially if they use Firefox 3.
The Firefox 3 updates keep on coming. After 5 beta’s, there is now Release Candidate 1 as well.
Firefox 3 is light years ahead of Firefox 2. I cannot begin to describe how numerous the improvements are, especially for Mac users. The awesome bar alone is worth the upgrade in my opinion, nevermind when you throw in the massive improvements in memory management and performance increases.
For a great review on Firefox 3, check out this article at Mozilla Links.
It completely and utterly leaves Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera in the dust. I seriously have fits when I am forced to use another web browser now.
