Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Shit! [via] Even when they’re just proving rumors true, Apple manages to surprise. Nevermind that it’s one inch more than expected; announced a week before the press event?! Yes, they’ve done that before (for a MacBook Pro iteration, I think? not sure), but if a 24-inch iMac isn’t worthy of a Steve Jobs mention… in a “It’s showtime” keynote…

 

Droooool.

 

Good heavens does it look huge in photo.

Oh, and the Mac mini specs have been bumped (again). But who cares today?

You know how Safari slows down Quicktime and Flash animations when a window isn’t active, and you can’t watch YouTube videos while doing something in another application? Star Performer (from the developer of must-have CoverFlow) is a SIMBL plugin that makes Safari believe a given window is still in the foreground.

It seems to break my Safari, though (it loads, but won’t open any windows at all, which, uh, makes it a bit unusable) so I can’t really recommend it; better live with the developer’s post-scriptum: “Interesting – recent Webkit nightlies no longer throttle background video.” (Meaning that future versions of Safari won’t have this behavior anymore anyway.)

I just solved the mystery of the disappearing Desktop folder: I’ve grown accustomed to using Quicksilver to move files from my desktop to where they should be stored; it seems that Quicksilver will occasionally (very — it’s only happened twice so far) move the desktop instead of the selected files for some reason. I think I’d have noticed if the QS windows showed it had selected the Desktop folder, so I think it’s really a silent bug.
