Even if I type bladiebla.com it is still Bing-ing my address; need to prefix it with www.
Really? I have a problem with history whereby if I visit one URL of one website once, it will be the first result for autofill, instead of my bookmark that I have had for ten years and which is in my history over 4,000 times. GO SHOVE A RAKE IN YOUR EAR, SAFARI. I mean, who on Earth thought this was a good predictive system by any stretch of anyone's imagination?!
3. The Archive Utility works at my end though, don't know what happened t your end. Could it be a 'change-of-icon'?
I've been changing its icon since Leopard and this is the first time it has just refused to work. And it's just an icon, too!
4. Is that screendump Launchpad? Does it, in your opinion, work 'faster' than regular folder list in the Dock? I never understood why we are having two options to start an application, other than creating the iOS look that is.
Yep. I had myself an Applications folder Stack before I popped on the first DP of Lion, and I said to myself, "Self, give it a go." I got rid of that Stack and tried Launchpad instead, and I have been ever since. My only complaint is folders staying open after you've opened an application within them. That's just stupid. I don't like that in iOS, either.
As far as changed usability in this regard, instead of having to scroll the Stack, I just have clicking to do. All of my applications fit onto one screen in Launchpad, so there's no swiping or looking around to do. Everything is one or two clicks away. And while I don't use all of the Apple applications frequently enough to necessarily "warrant" them receiving "one-click" status (I use HandBrake more than many, for example), I just like how they look. So they're all right there.
I guess I can see how some people might want folders inside folders in Launchpad (maybe), but it's interesting to note that Apple already has that system in place in iCloud-referenced files on iOS. You can see folders within folders, and that's a key feature to make beautiful and intuitive before they're able to switch the desktop fully to multitouch. Yeah, I know, paranoia about "hiding the filesystem", but Apple won't be doing that on the desktop. I mean, they certainly will, given that it's far easier for regular people to understand that the files such-and-such application sees are the files it can open. But if you want to see it, you won't be prevented.
5. Damn, sometimes OT discussions are better than the actual article LOL
Well, there's truly not much else to say on this.
Guy worked there, doesn't anymore, wasn't fired, is okay with not working there. No drama. And since we covered the fact that he can't legally do jailbreaking anymore and how his work will probably prevent most jailbreaks in the future entirely, this may be the first thread in a good long while that has actually wrapped up before puttering out.
