I use Apple hardware and Mac OS X since the age of dawn but work doing Android development using Eclipse Intellij-IDEA. Used to be a .NET/C# guy.

I do some Objective-C when time permits (never lately) and always experiment in Xcode when it's not crashing.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not The Crow like my picture might suggest :)

I have lived in the sunny Spain near Madrid for over eleven years, but now I live in San Francisco, CA.

I'm currently working for 8tracks.com where I do mobile development.

comment Can I move the top menu bar?
It's not an issue for a lot of users, so there's nothing to resolve. It's been designed to be there and will probably remain there until they decide to come up with something different. It makes a lot of sense to be there, it's not a big deal, you can get used to it in one day and it really doesn't make you less (or more?) productive. It's an easy to hit target area. Even if you'd love to move it, you can't on OSX, you so you have to adapt or just install other OS, but it will not be "resolved" per se.

The point is, if you don't like the way OS X does things, you just use something else as opposed to leaving pointless rants that nobody really cares about :)

@javadba so different that Ubuntu linux also went with the same approach.

comment Best keyboard mapping approach to make a Mac work like Ubuntu?
About 2-3 years ago when I used all three (VMware, Parallels and VirtualBox), the first two were really faster and more advanced in terms of features than VirtualBox (but not "free"). For simple things, VirtualBox was ok (i.e.: running a simple Win XP app) but for serious stuff, I recommend trying either of the others. I liked stuff from both. I always felt Parallels was faster, yet more intrusive and buggy, but haven't used them in a while. Also Parallels tends to update every year and charge you for that, very close to subscription :) (and releases were buggy so people were unhappy). YMMV

@GeorgeKatsanos I am not sure exactly what you mean, but the host OS determines what the action is. In the case of VMWare and Parallels, their drivers used to be "clever enough" to do the right thing (i.e.: cmd+C would do copy in the virtual OS too). But I haven't used either in a long time!

comment Can the 2013 13" Macbook Air drive an external 4k monitor?
There's your tag. Regarding the question, I think that the MBA 2013 has Thunderbolt 1 and you need thunderbolt 2 to drive 4k, but I'm not sure yet.

comment Problem with ssh agent
Whoa, old question. As far as I can remember, the ssh key files must not have any sort of extended attribute or the ssh client refuses to take them, but this should be tested on a modern system.
