If like me you’ve been running Windows 7 under boot camp on a MacBook Pro you may have noticed a sound issue with the Cirrus chipset.
Basically, volume is significantly reduced from the speakers *unless* you switch on sound enhancements and “volume normalisation”. If you do this you get significantly louder sound coming from the speakers.
The issue with this fix is that audiodg.exe starts taking up CPU cycles
Cirrus have released updated drives that fix the issue and enable louder sound without having the enhancements enabled.

This is a neat trick to access your Dropbox account from any webdav supporting app.
All you do is ensure Webdav is installed and enabled on Windows Server, point IIS (if you’re using Windows) to a copy of your Dropbox folder and setup security so you have to login.
Now all you do is access the URL from your webdav app, login and you have read/write access to your dropbox files.
Ideal for accessing Dropbox from Pages, Numbers or other iWork for iPad apps!
If like me you like a lot of crappy eye candy in Windows and run WindowBlinds then you may have come across an issue where context menus (the ones that usually appear when you right click the mouse in the app) appear blank. Turn WB off and they are fine.
There’s a simple fix.
Open WindowBlinds, go to SETTINGS, then PER APPLICATION tab. Add in the EXE of the app you’re dealing with and under ADVANCED FEATURES click the “Enable if menus appear blank in the application” option
OK all the dialogs, apply the changes and re-launch the app.
Just a quick post to help anyone that’s getting this. If you’re running Titanium Developer on OSX for iPhone development and you’re seeing a “Loading…” for the SDK dropdown that appears to hang forever, there’s a simple fix.
Delete the project, NOT the folder just the entry in Titanium then re-add it.
Worked for me
Bought an iPad keyboard dock today, here's a quick review.
Makes typing easier, you make less mistakes and have more screen space available. It's great when remote controlling a "real" computer using Logmein etc.
It's very stable, the combination of dock and keyboard means you can sit it on the arm of the sofa without fear of it toppling off.
There are dedicated keys for brightness, volume, home and spotlight.
You realize instantly that the iPad should have come with two connectors, one on the bottom and one on the side. I don't care about this "hold it anyway you want" business - they should have included a landscape and portrait dock connector.
Lack of UI support for key controls/shortcuts within apps is immediately obvious. Yep it's great if you're in an e-mail and editing or using Pages etc but you can't tab/scroll through e-mail lists or Safari using the keyboard.
That's it so far....
