We’ve put together a brief video walkthrough and tutorial that showcases how to use the new AirPlay Mirroring feature in OS X Mountain Lion. To follow this tutorial, I’m assuming that you have an Apple TV on the same network as a Mac connected to the same network.

Did you know that you don’t need any fancy 3rd party apps to send audio only to your Apple TV using AirPlay on OS X Mountain Lion? Apple has included an extremely simple way to enable audio only output to your Apple TV right from Mountain Lion’s sound preferences.
This allows you to do things like stream Spotify, and other apps outside of iTunes, which don’t feature built-in AirPlay audio toggles.

Did you know you could share more than just documents with the new Documents in the Cloud feature on Mac OS X Mountain Lion?
Indeed, you can share nearly every file type across multiple machines using the new Documents in the Cloud feature. All you need to do is drag a file into the iCloud TextEdit folder and all those files will be almost instantly shared across multiple Macs running OS X 10.8. It’s sort of like a dumbed down DropBox experience.
An awesome new feature has made its way to TextEdit in OS X Mountain Lion: A brand new interface that allows you to save documents directly to iCloud, and access them via any iCloud enabled Mac running Mountain Lion. It’s appropriately entitled: Documents in the Cloud.
Take a look at our video walkthrough as we explore this great new feature inside… Read More...
If you get that error message while trying to create a USB boot disk for OS X Mountain Lion, then don’t worry, your boot disk is still completely usable.
I figured I’d make a post about this issue, since I’ve seen a lot of the same questions going around the web.
The answer to this issue is to simply proceed and ignore the error message. If you’ve taken a look at our step-by-step USB boot key guide for OS X Mountain Lion, then you will see that I too received the Restore Failure Could not restore — Invalid argument error, yet still created a successful USB boot disk.

I’ve never been much of a fan of plain jane iOS screenshots, they just look unattractive to me. Thankfully there’s a handy way to spiffy up your screenshots, and you don’t have to fire up Photoshop in order to do so.
Screentaker is a Mac App Store app that allows you to frame your iOS screenshots with iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad frames that are much more like product shots. Not only will this make your posts or your app advertisements look more appealing, it can also save you loads of time… Read More...
Something tells me that not everyone takes advantage of OS X’s wonderful Hot Corner functionality. Hot Corners allow you to perform specific actions when you drag your mouse corner to any one of the four corners on your screen.
I like to use the “show desktop” action and assign it to my bottom left-hand Hot Corner. This allows me to move files to and from my desktop with ease… Read More...
