50+ and 25+ Ah batteries: Macbook External Battery & Car Adapter Charger from MikeGyver

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/06

Wow:

  • 52800mAH Ultimate External Battery for Macbooks
  • 26000mAH Macbook External Battery & Car Adapter

That’s (nah Triad) 50+ and 25+ Ampere hour of battery capacity.

Which is the similar to what car and motor cycle batteries can hold.

Reminder: check for PCIe SSD upgrades – via: How-To Upgrade the SSD in your MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro, boosting size & speed | 9to5Mac

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/29

Need to check this out in the summer: see if there is PCIe SSDs available for my Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro.

Newer-generation 13″ and 15″ Retina MacBook Pros use newer SSDs with faster PCIe connectors. As of early 2015, no third-party SSDs are compatible with this standard, but we’re expecting to see options hit the market closer to the middle of the year. Some Retina MacBook Pro SSDs will apparently be capable of achieving speeds in the 1.2GB/second range, compared with the 700-800MB/second speeds of stock drives.

Intermittent but frequent OS X pauses may be from iCloud syncing | MacIssues

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/21

fseventer is a great tool for investigating Mac OS X file system events. Like many low-level tools, it requires admin privileges.

This is apparent through the use of the tool “fseventer” which monitors what files on your hard drive are being accessed.

Mac OS X: Open a Terminal at Folder from Finder / Open Finder at Folder from the Terminal (via: StackOverflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/06

Thanks User Chris Page – Stack Overflow for answering on StackOverflow:

  • How to open a Terminal from a selected Folder in the Finder
  • Hoe wo open a Finder at the current Folder in a Terminal

Some quotes of his answer:

As of Mac OS X Lion 10.7, Terminal includes exactly this functionality as a Service. As with most Services, these are disabled by default, so you’ll need to enable this to make it appear in the Services menu.

System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services

Enable New Terminal at Folder. There’s also New Terminal Tab at Folder, which will create a tab in the frontmost Terminal window (if any, else it will create a new window). These Services work in all applications, not just Finder, and they operate on folders as well as absolute pathnames selected in text.

In addition, Lion Terminal will open a new terminal window if you drag a folder (or pathname) onto the Terminal application icon, and you can also drag to the tab bar of an existing window to create a new tab.

Finally, if you drag a folder or pathname onto a tab (in the tab bar) and the foreground process is the shell, it will automatically execute a “cd” command. (Dragging into the terminal view within the tab merely inserts the pathname on its own, as in older versions of Terminal.)

You can also do this from the command line or a shell script:

open -a Terminal /path/to/folder

This is the command-line equivalent of dragging a folder/pathname onto the Terminal application icon.
