Apple’s mail client has an annoying limitation: If you want to export mail messages as
.emlx you have to do it one by one, i.e. dragging one message at a time from the Mail App’s window to a Finder window. It won’t let you drag several messages at the same time.
However with a small script this limitation can be circumvented easily. (This is Part II of the other Mail Export post.)
With OS X El Capitan (10.11) the Finder has gained a handy new feature, called Delete Immediately… .

The new iOS 9 opened the door for third-party content blockers for Mobile Safari. A couple of days ago the first blockers appeared in the iTunes Store and the list is growing longer.
The “problem” is that almost all of them receive great customer ratings in the store. In no time I had downloaded a bunch of them (too many…) and still didn’t know with which one to go. In the absence of unbiased comparisons I made a little comparison myself.Continue reading Quick Comparison of some iOS Content Blockers
Mail Drop is a new Yosemite features that drew relatively little attention.
Mail Drop is super useful. It allows to send huge (really huge) attachments just as if they were normal, small attachments. It does this by uploading the attached file to a third-party server (i.e. not the SMTP server).

(This depends on whether a mail client or web mail is used on the receiving side, or on the settings of the mail client.)
This allows to avoid problems like these: Continue reading OS X: Understanding and Configuring Mail Drop

This little Action is called “Delete”. We all know that deleting files can quickly become boring. “Delete” brings back some variation and joy to the otherwise monotonous duty of file deletion. 😉 Continue reading LaunchBar Action: Delete
A keyboard layout file sits between your physical keyboard and the operating system. It tells the computer what should happen when you hit a certain key on the keyboard, for example the key labeled “Z” or the combination of shift (⇧), option (⌥) and 7.
Most common usage of keyboard layout files is to make language specific physical keyboards work as you would expect. If you bought, for example, your MacBook in France chances are high that the upper left letter keys are labelled “A” and “Z”, and not “Q” and “W” as on an US keyboard. And indeed, if you hit the upper left letter key on your French MacBook it’ll type the letter “A” into your text document. Continue reading U.S.-TF: A Custom Keyboard Layout for OS X
