Check out Stefaan Lesage’s post over at iTutorPodcast.com to learn how to sync your contacts and calendar! I discovered a flaw in Apple’s implementation of Safari Keychain Syncing to iOS – your super secret good strong passwords are only as secure as your 4 digit code. Check out the Spibelt to carry your phone and keys while you exercise. Trello at trello.com might help you keep a small team organized.

#453 Dot Me Domain, Mac Boot Up Key Modifiers, Enable Remote Mac Screensharing Audio, PortraitPro, Taming the Terminal 14

Make sure you get to Macworld | iWorld in time to see me do my Tech Talk on Thursday March 27th! And early bird registration ends on 28 February so be sure to sign up early. Interview from New Media Expo with Nataša Dukanović about the .Me domain name. In Dumb Question Corner, Yadiel Sotomayor asks about key modifiers during boot up and I explain each of them as outlined in Apple knowledge base article HT1533 and tell you what problem they solve. In another “Dumb” question, Slau asks if there’s a way he can control a Mac remotely but actually be able to hear the other Mac’s audio, and I found the solution at bionoren.com. I do a review of PortraitPro from portraitprofessional.com which allows you to “improve” portraits like the pros (spoiler, I liked it enough to buy it). In Chit Chat Across the Pond Bart takes us through Taming the Terminal Part 14, where he explains how to create aliases and prompts.
