TUAW Tip: endo's keyboard shortcuts rock (

Aug 29th 2007 5:33PM #1: To my knowledge, no, and that isn't entirely Adriaan's decision. From what I've heard from developers, Google Reader doesn't have any kind of API to allow synching with it, so developers can't build those features even if they wanted to.

endo can, however, sync over the web, using a specific service for endo or even a .Mac account.

That said, I still do exactly what you're talking about. Every now and then I export an OPML from NetNewsWire or endo and upload to Google Reader for reading when I'm on the go, which admittedly isn't very often. Sure I run into the occasional dupe when reading headlines between the two, but sync isn't quite as crucial to me here. It could be an option to try out if you're interested in endo.

Install applications on your iPhone without hacking (

Aug 28th 2007 4:01PM You have to install the Launcher app so you can use more than 2 or 3 extra apps.

You also have to install the Community Sources package to get all those extra apps to install. Then the list will really explode.

iPhoto 7.0.2 update available (

Aug 28th 2007 3:27PM While this hasn't eradicated the constant mds process spike issue every time iPhoto starts, it has dropped the CPU usage from 100% to around 25%.

Google celebrates its first year of WiFi (Download Squad)

Aug 28th 2007 1:03AM My wife and I are thinking about moving to Chicago next summer. That would rule.

Why, hello there. (

TUAW Talkcast #4: Best of the Week & more - Join us tonight! (

Aug 23rd 2007 11:44PM That's a great idea actually, Bill and Mike. One of the possibilities I wanna kick around the brainstorming table is dealing with stuff *other* than what we've already blogged and read about. Maybe only touching on the really, really big stuff - if there is any - and then doing something completely original for the talkcast to bring it more value.

Nik and Lisa are both great folks too - I've been working with them over at Download Squad and they rock the house.

DVD to iPod minus the aggravation (Download Squad)

Aug 23rd 2007 1:37PM Handbrake couldn't rip Finding Nemo and a few others I tried. Underworld was one I think.

Greatascent: Highrise meets Address Book in web and desktop 2.0 harmony (

Aug 23rd 2007 1:15PM Highrise is a lot more than an online address book though, it's a correspondence manager. The idea is that you forward some emails you have with specific people to Highrise so you can keep track of who said what and when. I use it, for example, to keep track of certain conversations I have with developers and other 3rd parties. Toss Highrise into a team environment and things get even more interesting - every member of your team can forward correspondnece the have with a company or individuals, and the entire team can see a history of the discussion.

You can also create todos, notes, tag contacts to help organize them and so much more.

iPhone Software version 1.0.2 (

Aug 21st 2007 8:43PM Developing new apps and adding features to a device as complex as a mobile phone isn't like updating a little AppleScript. This is really complex hardware and software, and it takes time to make sure things run reliably.

As I've been covering here in the past, I'm willing to bet heavily that true iPhone applications and an SDK for developers are going to land right along with Leopard in October. Folks have been digging up code, references and other hints that make this a real possibility, though it admittedly is nothing but speculation for now. We'll just have to wait and see.

iPhone Software version 1.0.2 (

Aug 21st 2007 8:41PM @John Sample: I'm pretty sure they sell anti-Apple tin foil at :)

@Matt Massey: I only use Macs so I can't verify this, but I thought iTunes allowed you to sync your photos to a folder in Windows, or possibly Photoshop Albums. There might be other options that I'm sure you could find at Sorry I couldn't be more help.
