  • News: Griffin unveils Twenty, an AirPlay amp

    Apple’s AirPlay technology for streaming music (and video) to compatible devices first appeared back in September 2010. But, generally speaking, using AirPlay requires that you purchase compatible speaker systems, or Apple devices (like the AirPort Express) that can send AirPlay audio over a 1/8-inch (3.5mm) cable or S/PIDF optical output, which you can in turn connect to powered speakers.

  • News: Select and copy text within Quick Look previews

    Quick Look is a delightfully simple way to browse the contents of the files on your Mac without launching their parent apps. (Select a file, press the space bar, that's it.) But if you’re looking at, say, a PDF or Word document, Quick Look can frustrate, because it doesn't provide any way to select and copy text; if you find a snippet of text you’d like to copy and paste, you still need to launch the parent app. Unless, that is, you know a secret shared by Keir Thomas (author of the excellent Mac Kung Fu).

  • News: One Last Kodak Moment? Kodak Intros Wi-Fi and Hybrid Cameras

    Kodak has certainly seen better days in its impressive 131-year history; by now, you've probably heard the rumors that the company has fallen on hard times. It's a sad fact, but this year's CES may mark the last camera announcements for the company as we know it.
