  • "Draining Apple's Bulging Bags of Mad Money: Over the past few months, the call from Apple investors to issue a dividend has been steadily gaining in volume. The company gave in this week, promising $2.65 per share. While under the leadership of Steve Jobs, Apple preferred to keep its wallet stuffed, but at this point, spending billions on dividends and stock buybacks will still leave the company with plenty of walking-around money."  MacNewsWorld 8:25 AM

  • "One thing about Lion I find annoying is that if you have open documents which are already saved, or just applications with no open documents, and you give the Shut Down command, Lion will reopen all of them after the next boot. I can understand doing this if your documents were unsaved and you had a power failure, but the Shut Down command is actually issued by you, the user. In the past you would be warned about not saving, and you would then save. Perhaps there's value in not needing to, but I don't understand the value of opening documents that were already in a Saved state when Shut Down was issued. I already have a specific set of Startup Items established in my User preferences. Is there some way to turn this feature off?" MacInTouch 11:13 AM
  • "Amy Boynton asks if there's a way to turn off document locking. Fortunately, there is, though you'd never guess where that option is found.
