Ugh. A new malware targeting macOS. Just the way you want to start off the new year.

I’ve been a huge fan of Extensis since long before Mac OS X. In particular, their font manager, Suitcase Fusion, has been one of only two tools I consider mission critical beyond the essential Adobe apps I use.
The recently released Suitcase Fusion 8 doesn’t turn font management on its ear like version 5, 6 and 7 did—but it does greatly improve the experience for designers in lots of little ways.Read more “Suitcase Fusion 8: The best font manager, reborn”
Read more “A (much) better window manager for macOS”
Apple introduced a window-snapping feature a while ago, it’s lame. They also added a split-screen feature, which works but is extremely limited. Most users who want a window manager for macOS typically settle on BetterSnapTool ($3), Moom ($10) or SizeUp ($13). All three are great products. But in my opinion, all three do a little too-much for my taste, and in some cases cumbersome to use. It’s not that they’re terribly expensive, it’s that they’re terribly expensive for the simplest parts that I actually want to use.

I’ve been experiencing issues when I visit certain websites lately. Specifically, a few Mac-based sites like MacRumors, iMore, 9to5Mac and a few others. The problem is the sites load incredibly slow or fail to load completely—requiring me to reload the page two or more times. I’m running macOS Sierra and using Safari.
I switched to the Safari Technology Preview browser, and that helped a little bit, but not much. Pages still weren’t loading completely.Read more “Mac Websites Walk of Shame. Shame. Shame.”

If you have an old MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro laying around collecting dust, and you’re tech-geek, you can experiment with Google’s Chromebook experience without actually buying one.
OWC is accepting pre-orders for their Thunderbolt 3 Dock, due to ship in February, starting at $280 (depends on the length of the Thunderbolt cable you want included). The Dock is obviously in response to Apple’s latest MacBook Pro announcement I wrote about yesterday.Read more “The best way to add the ports you need to the new MacBook Pro”
