I’ve came across the problem that i cannot create a new virtual machine of Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 on my new Mac Mini. The problem I experience is that there is no option on the install screen prompting me to »Install OS X Using the Recovery Partition«. The screenshot below shows this option.
Well, that thing looks promising.
If you – like me – copy image files regularly to an external HD, you might also have come across the problem that sometimes the file references are created but the eventual copying of the file contents failed.

When you use the location of the user in your app and want also your iOS8 users to be able to enable using their location, you have to explicitly ask the user for it using this or this selector. There are two problems connected to that:
Provisioning an iOS app for in-house distributione is damn complicated. As my efforts to do so were eventually successful, I decided to prepare this comprehensive tutorial documenting my best practice approach for future reference.
I had the problem that my RSS feed was broken due to HTML that appeared above the XML declaration.
[UPDATE] You can now try out the Car UI yourself in Safari on your iPad.
Well, the title says it all: »A New Car UI: How touch screen controls in cars should work«. I am not convinced that car user interfaces should work exactly that way but I have to admit that the user interface of this prototype is intriguing.
In a recent iOS project for the iPad, I wanted to open a popover view from a bar button in the navigation bar. However, tapping somewhere on the navigation bar would not dismiss the popover view but (depending on where I tapped on the bar) open an additional popover view or even navigate to another view controller.
You can easily create animated GIFs from the command line in Mac OS X (or Linux) using ImageMagick. To figure out if ImageMagick is installed open the application Terminal from the Utilities folder in Applications, type ‘convert’ and hit ‘Enter’. If something like »Version: ImageMagick 6.6.9-3 2011-04-04 Q16« and lots of options appear, ImageMagick is installed and you can proceed. If not,
you can install it using MacPorts (look for ‘Mac OS X Binary Release’). install it using homebrew or MacPorts.
