So I’m about 24 hours in to using my Verizon iPhone and I love it. I was on a call yesterday during traffic hour and I drove from Hollywood to Sherman Oaks without a single hiccup.

So I was poking around in the latest Snow Leopard build and I found something really pretty cool in Disk Utility. There’s now a NFS Mounts menu item on the File menu and it presents you with a really nice looking NFS mount manager.

There is a know incompatibility between the HP Color Laserjet printer drivers and Adobe’s Actobat 8. Adobe has included a workaround in the print dialog. In the print dialog, click on the Advanced button toward the botton on the left.   In the Advanced Print Setup dialog, choose Postscript Options from the list on the left. Then, you’re going to...
