  • AppleScripts – Edit your iTunes Play Count

    You might ask, why would I ever need to edit the play count of a song? That’s a valid question and this function is probably reserved for the more anal iTunes user but let me give you an example. Sometimes I begin listening to an artist through a ‘Best of’ Album. After a while I realise that I LOVE them and I decide to graduate to their studio albums. Now…

  • Is your Mac fan being loud? Try This

    Reset your SMC (System Management Controller) and PRAM (parameter random-access-memory). Sounds hard and scary but its really not, its just a bit mysterious.

Here are 5 tips to get you on your way to a wonderful iTunes…

  • The Forgotten Apple Dashboard

    It’s strange that Apple doesn’t advertise this nifty feature of its operating system anymore. It is still very much integral to the working space of an apple machine and it still makes its presence on the keyboard. There’s even a whole section of the apple website dedicated to its ‘widgets’ http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/ – there are 100s to downloads (admittedly some are not very good but many are brilliant).
