  • Logitech Option+ settings app & driver will support Apple Silicon

    Review: IMHO
    I have no relation, other than satisfied customer.

    I've used mouse customization software Steermouse for years. 
    Initial license is $19.99, but updates have been free for years. A single license works on multiple machines.

    It lets me customize buttons on my mouse and tune other settings. It is able to have by app settings.
    It has worked on many different mice, including Logitech's MX Master 3, and many Apple Macs, including the M1.
    I much prefer it over Logitech's mediocre stuff. A good clean interface. It's an essential tool for me.

    He provides regular updates and follows macOS evolution, including Monterey. I'm hoping he'll add iPadOS.
    On the rare occasion I needed help, he was responsive.

    Logitech support has been patchy, at best, and Mac marginalized.
    e.g. Buying MX Master 3. PC and Mac versions are the same price, but Mac version doesn't have
    a USB dongle and you can't buy a working one. "PC" version has the dongle and works just fine on Mac and iPad. Boo!
    I never bother with Logitech's software.
  • Future Apple devices may have invisible buttons and sliders

    hide and seek software is bad enough!
    hide and seek hardware?! Please.
    stop this crap.
  • Apple acquires popular weather app Dark Sky

    My reaction is: I hope Apple doesn't &#&$ it up. Or worse yet kill it.

    This is my favorite complication on the Watch infograph modular.

    Apple should learn from the compact display of a lot of information

    In the center, it gives you:
    current conditions, temp, cloud cover,
    temp low high
    next sunrise or sunset

    all at a glance

    I love it. Apple- if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Works on mine, same model.
    Requires Catalina.
    No, it does NOT require Catalina. It does work on Mojave 10.14.6. I can confirm.
    Tested on 2 machines:

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

    It works on both, so far. 

    Obviously configuration voodoo is at work. That's the problem with unofficial hacks. Nothing's guaranteed

    No need to up (down?) grade to Catalina. works on my Mojave 10.14.6. 
    Nice nostalgia, but nowadays I rarely reboot. Just close the cover to lock screen. Unlock with Watch - usually.
    Sounds different from the classic Mac. Not as deep and clear. HiFi? ;-)

    as for no keyboard light at login. You probably have filevault enabled. The only solution I've found is turnoff filevault. I'd also love a fix
    that allows both. 

    I have a strong password and weak fingers. I need to see what I'm typing in a dark room. Especially since I usually unlock with watch or touchID.
