The Most Annoying Sound in the World

Audible bell. Not a sensible default, in the sense that it grates on my senses. First thing I do is rush headlong into Terminal.app’s preferences and change it to Visual bell. Can be found via Settings > Advanced.

Visual Bell FTW

Really? Advanced?

Keeping CES in Perspective

This American Life, unsurprisingly, timed the release of “Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory” perfectly in light of all the attention the tech media is lavishing upon the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

I love new technology as much as the next geek, but it is easy to lose sight of what goes into putting those shiny objects in our hands year after year.

As is wont for This American Life, they have produced a well-spun yarn that tackles a difficult issue from a variety of angles. Well worth the listen.
