I whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.
I have heard countless tales of woe from hither and yon regarding lost songs and playlists after “upgrading” to the latest version of iTunes and / or activating the awful Apple Music service. I’ve read people crying on Facebook and complaining on Twitter and have received my fair share of frantic emails from family members […]

I prefer to run first thing in the morning.* I like being up and at ’em before the rest of the world and I know that if I wait until the end of the day I’ll find some excuse to be lazy instead. Right now I’m living in an area without adequate street lighting, and […]

Mac Pro-tip: Pressing ⌘ and + will make the font larger in just about every program you use. (And ⌘ and – will decrease the font size.)
It’s a silly little tip that almost everyone knows. But if you don’t know it, it’s a godsend. (It’s a little depressing to admit that your eyes are getting older, but …)
I have about 40,000 photos, which makes iPhoto impossible to use. I don’t mean, “It’s difficult for me to use.” I mean, “I can’t use it at all.” It crashes on me constantly; And on the rare occasions I am able to even open the application, its performance is too unbearably slow and unresponsive to […]
If you include solo albums by John, Paul, and George, and things like Wings and the Plastic Ono Band, I’ve got over five hundred tracks in my iTunes library that I consider the work of The Beatles. I love The White Album indescribably, but even I don’t want to hear Rocky Raccoon ten times in […]
The only really annoying thing about the holidays is that most radio stations play the same ten or so songs over and over and over again. No matter how much you love the song, nobody wants to hear Baby, It’s Cold Outside five times in the same day. You’ve got plenty of Christmas music in […]
If your hard drive is low on space, a good place to look for things to jettison is your iTunes library. Lots of music files are large because the songs they contain are very long — Alice’s Restaurant Massacree clocks in at over eighteen minutes! — or because they’re encoded using AAC or the Apple […]
Depending upon the size of your iTunes library and how you have your playlists configured, you could have a bunch of awesome songs that you are either hearing over and over and over again, or that you’ve not heard in ages. Those are both terrible situations, of course. You want to have a happy medium. […]

* I’m excluding games and Facebook.
Here are the five apps I use most frequently on my MacBook Air:
