Reverse Scrolling on the Mac

Recently, Apple released their new operating system, 10.7 Lion. With this upgrade came many new features including full-screen apps, system-wide auto save and the most controversial feature: reverse scrolling. On an iOS device, to scroll, you take two fingers and push up to scroll down, and down to scroll up. Sounds confusing, but it is incredibly intuitive. It's like moving a piece of paper. So Apple figured because they sell two multi-touch mice, it would be a great idea. However, to most, it is confusing. Many bloggers have reported they couldn't get used to it as fast as the iPhone. In my opinion, I could get used to it very fast. I went to the Apple Store before I saw the Harry Potter movie, because at my mall they are in the same place. After using the Magic Mouse and Trackpad and getting used to the initial "oh yeah, it's been changed" it just became second nature when scrolling. Especially in Final Cut Pro X, going through the timeline was very smooth. To those of you who have 10.7, give it a chance. But if you can't get used to the change, you can change the scrolling direction in System Preferences under Mouse. If you want to get 10.7, you can buy it in the Mac App Store for $29 or the Apple Store on a USB drive for $59.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

LG V20 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I showed up to the T-Mobile store on launch day of the Note 7. I waited in a line of 7, which the T-Mobile folk claimed was the most they'd ever seen for any launch. I intended to the get the blue one, but I settled for the silver one. Afterwards, my experience was alright, this is it. This is the phone I intend to keep for a while. And it was just alright.

When I first switched from the iPhone 6 Plus I had, I intended my next phone to have more useful features. Sure, the iPhone was great, but there was nothing special about it. So the next phone I got was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Had it not been for the lackluster battery life, it was great. I loved the S Pen, I thought the IR Blaster was convenient as hell, and I just felt like I could do what I wanted with the phone. After a few months I wanted to find a suitable replacement, and I went for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. That was great too, better battery life, still had the IR Blaster, but it was noticeably slower. Then I got …
