ExpanDrive is another excellent app that uses MacFUSE. I use ExpanDrive to connect to my MediaTemple (gs) GridServer. Instant File Server. Works Excellent!
I learned of ExpanDrive through John Grubers post at Daring Fireball.
ExpanDrive: Ridiculously simple SFTP and FTP drive access on your Mac.
“ExpanDrive gives you perfectly transparent access to open, edit, and save files with your favorite programs, even when those files are half a world away. Transparent means that you don’t even notice you’re operating on a remote server—files act like they’re on an USB drive you plugged directly into your own computer.”
If you’ve ever wanted to mount your iPhone as a drive without having to jailbreak it you’re in luck. Allen Porter’s iPhoneDisk or, Disk for iPhone, is a MacFUSE based filesystem that allows you to read and write files on your iPhone. It uses the MobileDevice API (like iTunes) to access the filesystem of the iPhone over USB. You can find out all about Allen Porter’s iPhoneDisk Google Code Project HERE.
I ordered my Charge Tee from SimpleBits the other day as a birthday gift to myself. I can’t wait to get it and charge forward with all my future projects while wearing it.
Several nights ago our family went to see BOLT in 3D and we had a great time. I didn’t know what to expect from the 3D experience, but RealD 3D is AWESOME! One of the highlights of the movie for me was the Pixar short Tokyo Mater. I highly recommend this Disney/Pixar film to anyone with kids and those that love 3D movies.
I was looking over my FontShop newsletter yesterday and was happy to find a new font, Katarine. I love it.
“Katarine starts with the simple structure of a face like DIN or Trade Gothic, but ends up being much warmer, thanks to its soft finish. A full range of figures, small caps, ligatures, arrows, and even banners of various styles are all included.” - FontShop

So, I just got back from the Apple Store Aspen Grove to pick up a new iPhone Stereo Headset. All the staff where great and I’m happy to have a new headset. I love the smell of new plastic goods. Time to plug these in and slip into auditory bliss for a while.
