It is nice to see people working together and focusing on the positives. A huge thanks to Apple! Apple is dedicated to supporting the worldwide response to COVID-19. We’ve now sourced over 20M masks through our supply chain. Our design, engineering, operations and packaging teams are also working with suppliers to design, produce and ship face shields for medical workers. pic.twitter.com/3xRqNgMThX — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) April 5, 2020

Have You Tried Vivaldi?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

A few weeks ago I was introduced to a new browser I had never heard of before: Vivaldi. I have been known to like alternative browsers (iCab, Flock) and was excited to see what this new browser was all about. Within a few moments – I was sold. Without any extensions – I could capture entire page and is something that instantly saves time. I also use that functionality when helping clients debug an issue or show them some new development. So far – so good! Next Up – the ability to view tabs in splitscreen. Wait a second –… Read More »

Most Preferred Network on Your iPhone

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I recently ran into an issue where my iPhone would seem to always try and connect to the one network I did not want to use anytime I left the house/came back. After I had enough manual switching – I finally took a look and learned how Apple orders the networks to join: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202831 and then looked at my settings. I noticed that my preferred network had “Auto Join” set to “no” and “Auto Join” set to “yes” for the slow network I had grown to hate. If you have the same issue – go to your WiFi settings on… Read More »

Disable the Cache in Safari 11

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

With Safari 11 – we lost the “Disable Cache” in the Safari Developer menu. If you are a developer – you know this comes in handy when debugging any CSS/JS changes. After spending a few days frustrated – it was time to find a solution so I could disable the cache (permanently). If you are looking for the same solution – look no further. Using the command line: rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari ; echo > ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari That will remove the current cache forever and replace it with a file (not used to do any caching). You are welcome.
