First you need to install Apple Developer Tools from the CDs that came with your Mac. Next browse to Applications in the Finder. Control-click on Mail and select Duplicate so you have a backup. Control-click on Mail...

Microsoft Consumer Products, Efficiency &...
I don’t get it why people using the latest builds (technology previews, in MS parlance) are boasting about running Win7 and Office 2010 on a Netbook. These people are boasting that the next-generation of products for consumers from Microsoft are now efficient enough to run on a netbook. Both Vista and Office 2007 should’ve been efficient enough to run on a netbook from the very...

Things I Can Improve on My Thesis
I’ve had the opportunity to work on a mini project for a partner of one of the world’s largest remittance companies. This gave me better insight on the many aspects of my thesis that my ‘mates and I have not considered given the nature (domestic remittance), the lack of experience working with competent people running an actual remittance business and of course, access to the...

Will anyone pay for anything? →
Guy Kawasaki’s Garage Ventures holds a conference called Revenue Bootcamp. It dicusses what ‘young people’ (high school to recent grads) are willing to pay for on the Internet. Highlight: They seldom click on any kind of advertising, and they never buy anything because of the advertising. Yep, I want this generation to age damn quick so that all the dotcom companies stop...
