Drag & Drop feature introduced in Gmail

Just like Outlook or any other Email client, now you can drag & drop files to attach in Gmail . Before April 15, 2010 to attach a file we had to click on Attachments, then browse all the way to select files and attach them. Now its the talk of ancients, now post April 15, 2010 you can just drag files and drop them to your composing Email and it will get attached.  Once you drag the files over the browser with Gmail, it will give a prompt of ‘Drop files here’ which once done, should attach the file to the Email. This was one of the most awaited feature of Gmail by users. The limitation of this feature is that it is enabled and will work only on Firefox or Chrome as of now. IE users hope a better tomorrow which should come soon. For more details, you can visit Google blog. Some other resources are DNAMail , TechieBuzz , findithow and LivBit .   Buzz

Twitterific for iPad - $4.99 for Pro, Regular account- free

The terrific twitter client for for iPad We have been seeing this application on Mac since long time, now Twitterific has launched version for iPad. Largely the same interface as we've seen in prior iterations, and it makes the transition well here. Again, as usual, columns are easy to navigate and the sheer volume of information never seems cumbersome, although we find it pretty annoying that you have to switch to portrait mode to click on links, photos don't get their own formatting (relegating you instead to the site), and there doesn't seem to be a way to follow a public conversation thread - but ya, it's free and great for multiple simultaneous feed navigation.

To Disable quarantine pop up after downloading an application

When you download an application from internet, it gives a prompt to open or go to the website once the downloading is complete. Following this post you can get rid of annoying prompt. Before I start I would rather recommend that if you are new to Mac don’t disable it unless you are well versed with the behavior of Mac Operating system and its functionality. If you are smart enough to manage, then lets move ahead. All you have to do is type the following command on terminal screen. defaults write LSQuarantine -bool NO This command stops the quarantine message that you get after downloading is complete. Activation and deactivation of this feature is almost same. All you have to do is change the last section of this command from ‘NO’ to ‘YES’, as mentioned below: defaults write LSQuarantine -bool YES I have tested this on two iMacs, please let me know if you face any issue is executing it.
