Sublime Text

I’ve been using Sublime Text  for a while now. I really am enjoying this text editor. I do all programing/coding in Sublime Text that I don’t do in Xcode or at the Command Line.I’ve switched from using Coda which is also a great text editor too. I actually still use it for some coding work here and there. Why I like Sublime Text is because of the time it takes to start up. It’s  extremely fast and has become my go to editor when needing to edit something really quickly.

 

 

iTunes 11 Looks Funny

So iTunes 11 was released yesterday and I upgraded as soon as it was ready for download.

It’s totally different as it has been totally redesigned. My firm impression of it was just ok, as I really don’t like change too often. Though it looks cleaner, just not a big fan of the default layout. If you’re like me don’t fear you can get the status bar and sidebar back. Check out this from TUAW on how to get your beloved iTunes layout back.
