Was working along yesterday, put a file into Dropbox and went to get the link and…
Wait… no contextual menu?!
I dug around a bit and found this video.
Don’t know why the contextual menu plugin would have disappeared in the first place but the video got my rolling again.
I started using Google Drive awhile ago because my colleagues were. Easy to use applications that have the collaborative features we were looking for.
I didn’t install the Mac client for Google Drive that syncs the contents of your Google Drive to the local machine. About two months ago I did.
Shortly after that I noticed a weird thing that started to happen.
I would be happily typing along in some application and the application would move to the background. Click on the app or use the command keys to move the app back to the front…and it would happen again.
It was driving me crazy.
One day I was typing merrily along and it happened…again. However, this time I noticed the Google Drive Icon in the menu bar flash at the same time the foreground app moved to the background!
Sure enough that was the problem. Set Google Drive to ‘pause’.
John Gruber recommended this application for the iPhone. I picked it up and loved it. Check out this story from Lifehacker.
Not new information as ‘The Loop’ was revised back in the fall of 2013. See initial review here by Apple Insider. See the review I’m referencing here.
‘The Loop’ is powered by something called ‘Glide’ from ‘Glide Creations’. I guess I’m just confused as I thought this was something that was released but the web site doesn’t seem to indicate that’s not the case.
Came home to my personal machine showing this on screen:
I guess it wants me to buy more ink.
Cameron Beccario created a map of the surface winds on Earth. See here.
Just added a map of ocean currents. See here.
Fascinating…make a great ‘live’ desktop.
Ran across a post about IFTTT (If This Then That) over at TidBITS. See here for the full article.
Really interesting given the focus on the ‘Internet of Things’.

A couple of good reference pages for Mac OS X and keyboard shortcuts. I’m posting these because I have had several requests for information about these. Also, people seem surprised that you can create MORE shortcuts for an application via System Preferences.
