Yosemite network problems

I’ve successfully updated two macbooks to Yosemite, and I’m quite happy so far. The only problem I got, is that one of the two (an old late 2008 macbook) stopped seeing other devices on the network. Even from the Airport utility, it continues to look around without seeing the Time Machine connected to the network. […]

I purchased an awesome 24″ LCD Monitor by Asus, I didn’t spend much (except for the Apple Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable). The problem with OS X, is that once you have such a wonderful display you want to use it fully, and the Apple operating system works against you. In fact, by default the […]

I always found Dashboard pretty useless, and I just notice it exists when by mistake I press some key which switches the desktop to it. So, here is how to get rid of it; I write this post mainly for future memory for myself. From this article: $ defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean YES $ […]

Yesterday I noticed that when I close the lid of my MacBook Pro the light in front of the case was not indicating that the computer was going to sleep normally. Still the fans were running and when I opened the lid, I saw that it was not resuming from sleep properly, presenting a strange […]

After installing OS X Lion I tried to burn a DVD in my macbook, and it turns out that this is what I get using Disk Utility: I tried several DVDs (DVD+R, DVD-R, different brands, and tried to burn at different speed), with no luck. Also it refuses to read movie DVDs. But it can […]

When I first had to use OS X I had hard time with some things that weren’t working as expected. I thought they were usability bugs, but of course don’t try to argue about that with a veteran Apple user, because “you’re ugly and stupid, and that’s the way it should be! And OSX has […]

If you are an objective MacBook user you may think that those laptops tend to overheat. In case, you may give FanControl a try. If you are an Apple Fan, then it’s just correct that your keyboard is on fire.

Dear Apple, dear Sony, dear stupid "international" company willing to sell me stuff through internet... the fact that, in this period of my life, I am living in Germany and I own a German credit card, doesn't mean that I can perfectly understand German. So why there is no way to change the language in […]

There are a couple of cool features in GIT that may not be well known by everyone, depending on which platform you are using. For example on Linux it is quite common to have the bash completion working, while in Windows msysgit comes with a cool prompt which displays the current branch and some status […]

If you are working with the Android Development Toolkit (ADT) for Eclipse you may have noticed that the sources for android.jar are missing. The Android SDK comes without the sources, and even if you manage to download the source code for the Android library, the ADT does not allow you to attach the sources to […]
