comment What changes have been made to bash in Lion?
@John I tried u="$(whoami)"; echo $u on 10.6 and 10.7, with the same result. Post the script source, that way you'll get decent answers. Also, to address your main question, the latest system upgrades for 10.7 and 10.6 will have the same version of bash anyway, ie. 3.2.48(1)-release

comment OS X Terminal equivalent of Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right
Of course, ESC ^ is great when you do need it, it's only annoying when you wanted to do something else entirely :)

comment What tiny thing in iOS 5 makes you smile, or has caught you off guard?
As Steve Yegge skillfully pointed out in his leaked google+ post, Accessibility is really important, and doesn't really mean what we tend to think it does... Accessibility is every way that humans interact with computers.

Just tap the right arrow on the copy | cut selected text menu, and there's the define option, or tap left to go back.

@Styfle - "a lot of good Accessibility features that no one knows about" ... ironic that accessibility to the accessibility features is so poor.

comment How can I bypass Textmate asking for my password every time I save a file?
@WaleyChen /Users/MyUsername/ is equal to ~ your home directory, everything below it, ie. rails_projects should have permissions set to you, if not, you can change it with chown username filename

If you haven't already, I think you should ask Bose support too.

comment OS X Lion - download once and install on multiple computers
... and what about the software licence? I think you mean "you only need to download Lion once."

We should re-open this now that OS X Lion is retail.

I've updated the answer to put this more clearly, I hurried to get the thing posted with the pics and didn't think about wording properly.

comment How can I find the owner of an obstinate iPhone?
Thing is, if the owner tries to recover it, they'd ask the police first. But infer what you will from the lack of sim card and then decide what to do. The other thing is, at this stage you don't know if it's stolen, giving it to a charity just causes problems for someone else down the line, if that's the situation.
