comment Inexpensive AC charger for iPod 3rd gen / 4th gen
Thanks. I think you're right; I was under the impression that Apple devices did fancy, nonstandard things that made them not work with standard USB chargers. However, I bought a cheap Zune charger for $5 and it works fine on an iPod Touch 3rd gen.

comment Concisely starting Mac OS apps from the command line
Thanks @mankoff! Smells great - once I've tested it and it works I'll mark the answer accepted. Much appreciated.

@calevara, thanks - @mankoff is right; it's about length.

comment refresh Preview from command line
Skim does what I want; thanks. It still likes to bring itself forward during the refresh, but I can work around that. Skim also affords much more effective AppleScripting than Preview (you can tell it to refresh directly).

comment refresh Preview from command line
@Martin, thanks - I got that to working. The one remaining problem is that the window order is twiddled; I'd prefer for it to remain exactly the same.

comment refresh Preview from command line
Thanks; that would be partway there certainly. Is it possible to tell Preview to refresh but not come to the front? How does one figure out what AppleScript hooks are available for an app (or is that a new question I should ask)?

Oops, looks like I didn't read the meta question carefully enough. Here's another meta question dealing specifically with whether this question is on topic: meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/108/…

OK, but the link to the meta discussion would be helpful: meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/103/…

Here's a thought experiment: what if the OP were having trouble transferring his photos from a Nikon D90? Would you consider it on-topic then?
