I knew it was going to be funny. John Gruber:
Bottom line: Not a single shred of evidence has been revealed indicating that Apple has misstated a single fact about this entire saga.
Seriously? So we’re supposed to understand that Apple just suddenly and unrelatedly decided to start “working with” SecureWorks, that company whose most prominent representative publicly accused them of lying and bullying and whatnot — all that just a few days before the same representative and his friend said they would demonstrate all their claims. Yeah, Apple was just dying to work with them. And that doesn’t mean, at all, that they just threw some money at them to get them to shut up. And that’s not at all why they decline to comment any further on what that collaboration actually is, either. Right.
I’m not surprised, per se, that Gruber would fail to see that point of view. But I’m still disappointed.
Hurray for Google Blog Search. I’ve finally been able to fix my Cocoalicious, which had stopped functioning because del.icio.us moved its API to https, just as I was beginning to use it as preparation for the podcast that has no name yet but will definitely not be called a podcast. (And I entered my links in it for a week before I realized it very discreetly said it was working in offline mode.)
Turns out you have to dig into Keychain Access and change some stuff. It looks to me like Cocoalicious stores your password in the keychain for http://api.del.icio.us and then somehow tries to use it on https://api.del.icio.us — I have no idea how come it reportedly still works for some people, but at least it’s an easy enough manual fix.
Import del.icio.us bookmarks to Yojimbo. Anyone brave enough to wrap this all in pretty AppleScript? I’d love to be able to import my del.icio.us bookmarks at the end of my podcast pre-production workflow. (Displaying the pages in Cocoalicious is too slow.)
