I've been using Firefox for the past six months or so because I don't like Chrome, but Chrome still has the technology edge in several cases. This looks to be bridging at least some of that gap. It would have been better if it happened three years ago, but late is better than never.
He probably doesn't want to screw over the next democratic candidate, though.
Meh, maybe the wording is wrong, but it's still an annoying thing for Apple to do. The hardware supports it, and the tweak to make it work is trivial--you just enter the hardware identifier into the kext.
I'm normally one that rolls his eyes when I hear this term, but I think in the case of Yosemite, there's definitely an instance of planned obsolescence. Handoff requires Bluetooth-4.0 (BLE). This is fine. Any Mac that has BLE should work with the feature. And they do...except for the mid-2011 Macbook Air. Luckily, there's a hack you can do with a hex editor and mucking about with kexts. Do so, and the feature works flawlessly. It's ridiculous that Apple would do this.
Cycle through windows: Command + `
Move cursor to beginning/end of line: Command + Left/Right
Case insensitivity: You can enable this, but there might be repercussions
Green plus: Only maximizes windows in Yosemite. Schizophrenic behavior is gone. The original idea was that it would resize the window to be exactly as large as it needed to be in order to show all its content, but it was often confusing.
I disagree that they're the best-feeling keyboards, but they're certainly the nicest non-mechanical keyboards I've ever used. (I would personally hate a silent keyboard.)
Leopold and Filco make some very solid Cherry-based keyboards (and in Leopold's case, some Topre options). They come in ISO variants, IIRC.
Higher actuation force and loudness are the primary reasons most Model M users like their keyboards. Sounds like it's just not for you. (Personally, the Model M isn't loud enough for me.)
Chances are that most people looking to buy a Model M aren't "most people". I've never heard of one damaging a modern computer.
Came here to say this. The Model M is great because it's an inexpensive mechanical keyboard, but the Model F trumps it. And what trumps that are IBM's beamspring offerings. I'm typing this on a Displaywriter Keyboard I modified to output via USB. It's not the easiest solution for a nice keyboard, but on the plus side, it's fully programmable, has doubleshot keys, and is the closest I've been able to find to the feel of a Selectric. (On the downside, it's nonstandard, gigantic, and expensive.)
Probably because Apple's business model isn't based around being as sleazy as possible. You buy an Apple product. With Facebook, you are a product.
While I'm sure that most iOS users don't have this enabled, it is possible to have a complex password to unlock. With Touch ID, I think they should make it mandatory, since it would be a much rarer event that people have to enter it.
IIRC, iOS asks you if you want to auto-download when you set up the device for the first time.
I blame the new layout (first time here in months). I couldn't see the other comment. My bad!
