comment Mirror number of unread mails in title bar
Not 100% sure what this does but it looks as if it takes quite some time for more than just a few messages. Also, it seems to return the total number of unread messages (?) which is not what I need.

Does not work for smart mailboxes or at least I did not have any luck with it.

Your script shows the number of messages in inbox not from the folder specified in Mail.app settings.

comment What are pros and cons for MacPorts, Fink and Homebrew?
As a remark on the differing number of packages: Homebrew decidedly does not include packages for programming languages which have their own packaging system (rubygems/pip/cpan…) or for software for which an arguably more appropriate OS X installer is available (MacTeX). Also, duplicates and older versions are not in the default repo but includes in alternate tap repos. Compare this to macports, which, eg contains an IPython port for all included Python versions. It is kind of a different philosophy which naturally increases the number of packages in macports.

comment Phone-only mode on iPhone
@DanJ True (I was aware of that in general but not in detail – thanks for the link btw) but I am exactly concerned about those few apps which may indeed run indefinitely. Those who have (maybe mistakenly) GPS activated while running in the background or are somewhat listening for incoming connections like in the Skype example. These are the ones which I fear may drain the battery without giving me a chance to find out that they are actually doing so.

And I would have to close all background applications manually as well to extend the battery life as much as possible…

comment The iPhone is over 3 times more expensive than the iPod touch, how much more margin is Apple doing on the iPhone?
If the design costs had already been recouped with the iPhone by the time the iPod touch was released, then why did the price for an iPhone not drop similarly once this was achieved? That’s not really a good argument. The iPod touch could have a completely different design and still it would be sold for way less than an iPhone. (At least that’s how the market works currently.)
