We run down the WWDC announcements, and John Gruber explains why Safari for Windows makes sense...

Here's a direct MP3 download of MBW 44.

Comments are open for your own thoughts on the WWDC keynote.

Merlin, you asked a Quicksilver...

Merlin, you asked a Quicksilver question during the episode:

To access the dictionary or thesaurus in Quicksilver just '.' on invocation, type the word you want to look up, tab and then type Dictionary (or thesaurus) and hit return.

It doesn't use the dashboard widget, but it functionally accomplishes what you were asking for. You have to install the Dictionary module for Quicksilver, but that's it.

As for why anyone would use the dashboard, I use five widgets. Weather (the default one), RPG for random password generation (a task I frequently need right now so it's perfect for the DB), the default calculator which I use more than anything else, Wikipedia (just because it's quicker than a web browser most times) and Delivery Status.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
