Our promise

We make this promise to our readers: to get onto this site things written about here have to:

  1. Be non-obvious, perhaps making use of features that are hidden, obfuscated, secret, experimental, or simply not very well known;
  2. 2. Make the most of OS X's built-in tools although recommendations of apps are made to fill a deficiency in the OS X or iOS feature set.

Unlike other Apple blogs we also promise not to repeat stuff you've already read elsewhere.

We also promise to provide a [Via] or hat tip [H/T] link to fellow bloggers or news services if we learned about a story or tip from them. We consider this fundamental to a fair and reasonable system of blogging and journalism.
