8 Developer

  • rjackson See Profile's most recent triumph is a Dashboard widget that will check to see if you have an IM waiting. It's a thing of beauty.

  • Gomez See Profile has written several handy utilities (including the wildly popular DSLR IM Checker) and has kindly provided the source code for some of them. You can find them on his iDisk.

  • k0fcc dba Joey Stanford's pride and joy is the Freenet / Entropy Controller. Check it out at VersionTracker.

  • Johnny See Profile was best known for his AppleScripts until the release of his Jumble Helper which has earned him the people's ovation and fame forever.

  • tmpchaos See Profile has (somehow) managed to write a dashboard widget ( »This still needs work ) that gives access to ATM.

Apple has one hidden away in their developer pages:

OS X System Overview

by JJ See Profile

Apple has posted a guide explaining the differences between OS X and Windows, particularly in terms of the Aqua user interface, from a developer's point of view. It can be found here. This document might also be of interest to Windows "power users" who want an overview of the conventions of the Aqua UI.

    Under certain circumstances (usually once per year) members of the Apple Developer Connection (ADC) with "Select" or "Premier" memberships (which cost money) will get a 'Hardware Discount' which expires on a given date and must be used before that time or forfeited. This discount can be used on one system*. The discount off of regular Apple Store prices is about 10%-20% depending on the sort of computer. To check the prices on a given item, go to this page and then click the "ADC Hardware Purchase Program Store" link.

    From time to time an ADC member with a discount will be in a position in which the discount expires before the member plans to purchase a system. In such a case the discount can be transferred to another member, and that member can be an "online" (i.e. free) member: he or she needn't be a Select or Premier member. The member with the discount transfers it to the other's account, then that person purchases the system through the ADC Apple Store (link above). Student members get a one-time hardware discount, but it cannot be transferred.

    *From Apple: "A system is equivalent to one (1) CPU with one (1) monitor; one (1) desktop; or one (1) portable. If you are purchasing peripherals (monitor, cable, iPod, etc.) you MUST order all items at the same time as your system purchase."
