Use a Binder Clip to Store Sunglasses on Your Car's Visor
Grant Siders sends in a neat new binder clip trick:
This is my idea of a DIY binder clip sunglasses holder for the car, It was based on the binder clip car mount, but i used a smaller clip, no rubber band, and clipped it to my pop-down sun visor. I bent in one of the binder clip wings to keep the sunglasses in place.
Make iCloud Act Like Dropbox On Your Mac
Speedbump31 makes iCloud more useful for Mac users running Dropbox:
You can create your own iCloud-styled "Dropbox" by creating an alias of the
~/Library/Mobile Documents/folder. Put it on your desktop and call it "Dropbox" (or whatever you want really).
Now, any documents you place inside of that folder will automatically be synced into all of your other Macs that use the same iCloud account.
