I need to know which key does the symbol--a slanting line with a dash to its top left indicate? its the first symbol in the finder toolbar at the top, for the new smart window shortcut.

that is the option (alt) key
why didnt you just try the possible combinations, viz, option + cmd + N, control + cmd + N and see which one worked?
would have been easy enough to figure out.

I saved some triggers in quicksilver for itunes, for search artists and ratings and some others, used the control+option+command keys+the number keys, but they dont seem to work...itunes plug-in is installed and activated and also the triggers are activated...any help..changing the key combination also doesnt help..

Also if i save documents in textapp, there is no other option to save directly to the location of my choice, they r predefined, any way around this?

Hi,

I am having trouble with syncing Nokia 6280. I have Macbook pro 13'' (the latest model) with Snow Leopard. iSync version is also latest, 3.1 I guess.
I checked in Apple discussion forums, no solutions posted. When I connect via bluetooth, i could browse the files and stuff, but I couldn't sync my contacts... it asks me to add the device and when I did, it just quits *unexpectedly*.

I tried various other solutions I found find from google searches including the ones listed for Noka 6300 and Nokia 6230i ( they are similar it seems...)

Does anyone face a similar problem??

wow this whole thread changed! Where's Ayush or Goobi? Are they like gone?
Anyway, I just bought a external HD and started using it with Time Machine. It is a My Book Home Edition 1TB. I wanted to change my settings so it backs up once a day, not once a hour. Is that possible?

@Artemis:
Some must have software for mac:
1. Transmission
2. iWork 09, especially Keynote
3. Candybar for modding the system themes
4. smcFanControl, totally awesome app to control system fan
5. Tweetdeck
6. Perian, you can't live without it
7. Handbrake
8. Skype
9. Audacity
10. Aperture, although iPhoto does fine
11. VMWare Fusion if you need it
12. Growl

I would not say 70deg is normal when only there is 30% Cpu usage. I am using around 40% and my temperature is 60C

Have you tried Nokia support? They release a plugin for iSync that's supposed to work with their phones. I don't know if it works for the 6280, though.

I have checked in Nokia forums, Apple forums and posted in Apple and nokia forums. Seems iSync 3.2 and Nokia 6280 have a match made in hell. I will wait for the current developer release which is due to be released after testing in a short time to see if it fixes this issue.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me a place in New Delhi where I can upgrade the hard disk of my Mac Mini?

Any idea how much it would cost to upgrade from 80 GB to atleast 120 GB?

You gotta do that on your own sonny. Just pop the hood and plonk a new one in. iFixit.com should do the trick. In the meantime, chew on some carrots will ya.

^^ You have to buy official HDD which will cost $$. Unless you're good with the Apple Store guys in which case they'll do it for free. Trust me, do it at home. It's easy.

@aryayush,

I just came to know about *plex*. Its awesome. However, I would like to know if it could play subtitles ( .srt, .sub) etc... if found ?? or could it download those info too??
I currently use isubtitles if I watch with itunes, otherwise directly with VLC.
thank you.
