You can install the pstree command using either Homebrew (my personal favourite), MacPorts or Fink and you'll get a command-line, tree view of processes on your Mac. To install with Homebrew it's just: brew install pstree Once you have Homebrew on your machine.

Workaround Probably the simplest / safest option is to 'flatten' the PDF before sending it, by printing it to a new PDF. After completing your form in Preview, go to the Print menu (cmd+P) and use the PDF drop-down in the bottom-left, selecting to Save as PDF... to generate a new, 'flattened' PDF. Flattened simply means that all annotations (including ...

I understand you don't want to install Windows. However, thats what all Mac-users at our company do (with vmWare fusion).

I believe I have discovered the real reason why this happens and the cleanest work around (version 8.2 doesn't fix this for me). Why this happens: The issue for me was tracking speed (and mouse acceleration!) reverting to the OS X default and not using Intellipoint settings. After trying to learn AppleScript for 2 hours to hack around the issue and adjust ...

A Mac My NAS of choice is an old Mac. In my case, I had an old MacBook that wouldn't hold a charge anymore so I rigged up an eSATA connection to my 2TB external drive. The advantages to using an actual Mac over a true NAS system: Uses first-party AFP on HFS for optimal compatibility. In particular, it supports Spotlight and fast file searches ...

I've used RoaringApps' Compatibility Table, which seems fairly comprehensive. However, their servers seem a bit bogged-down at the moment. (edit - as of July 26 - it's still very slow to use)

Looks like it's not fully compatible. When you reboot your Mac, Intellipoint doesn't start when OS X boots. You need go to System Preferences and open the Intellipoint preference pane. I'm waiting for Microsoft release new version of the utility. A few links with the same issue on the MacRumors and InsanelyMac forums. I've got a temporary solution: add the ...

Drobo FS The Drobo FS is my new favourite NAS. I've run a Netgear ReadyNAS and a PC-based NAS in the past and neither touch the Drobo FS for simplicity, speed and reliability. The ReadyNAS suffered from poor RAID performance, especially on reboots when volumes needed to be scanned. And the power supply in it was really lame. And the PC-based NAS was just a ...

ZFS is a filesystem, what has "copy on write" feature, so you will get a backup in every save - fully transparently.

Do you have an original (aluminum backed) iPhone? If so then yes, unfortunately Apple recessed the headphone jack and you do need an extender. If you have an iPhone 3G, 3GS, or 4, then you shouldn't need to, as the headphone jack is flush with the device.

If money isn't an issue, or one that you can wrestle with, then I don't think there is really any better tool for this than OmniGraffle by the Omni Group. It doesn't come with interface elements by default, but there is a freely-available extensive library of options on their site Graffletopia.

Two ideas I can think of. First, dual boot with OS X 10.6, which still supports Rosetta. The other is to obtain a copy of Snow Leopard Server, which had a license which allowed you to run it in a virtual machine. (The license for normal SL did not allow you to run it in a VM. Lion and Mountain Lion changed the license to allow it.) Then use Parallels ...

Microsoft has released a new version of Intellipoint: version 8.2. Although the site says it supports support 10.4 to 10.7 only, I tested it and it seems to work on 10.8. All bugs and problems that I know about have been fixed since version 8.0. Here's the download link: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/wireless-mobile-mouse-4000-limited-edition ...

You can not install older OS X versions on newer models, the old OS X version are missing the required drivers for hardware not even available when the OS X version was released. I see several options: You may (legally) install 10.6.8 Server in a VM (Parallels or VMware) though. The latest MacMini supporting 10.6.8 is the MacMini4,1: Apple Mac mini "Core ...

Freenas using generic hardware I love the ability to grab an old computer, fill it full of cheap hard drives, and install Freenas on a CF card or USB drive. Software RAID is reliable. A key point, if any of the hardware dies, the RAID array can be rebuilt when the software is installed on new hardware, unlike some proprietary solutions (NAS or RAID cards) ...

Snow Leopard could run on early 2011 machines because those machines were originally released with Snow Leopard. However, since yours is a Late 2011 model, a build of Snow Leopard that is compatible with your machine's hardware has never been engineered and thus would not work. If you look at the kbase article, you can see that all the Late 2011 model ...

You get the following alert box: "We could not complete your purchase. OS X Mavericks cannot be installed on this computer." You then get two options. The first button is Learn More, which takes you to the system requirements page, and the other button simply says Ok. Nothing gets downloaded.
