The Lenovo re-introduction of IPS in 14-inch models after almost a decade of absence is a farce

A decade ago, Lenovo had top-notch IPS displays with (back then high) DPI of 133 in some of their laptops called FlexView and FFS.

The IPS ThinkPad history is this: Read the rest of this entry »

Running OS X Lion 10.7 on VMware Workstation 7.1.4 and 8.0 (via: How to Install Retail OS X 10.6 under VMware Workstation or Player – InsanelyMac Forum)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/10/14

This might not be strictly legal, but it is supposed to be possible to run the retail OS X Lion 10.7 under VMware Workstation 8 (or VMware Fusion 4) and VMware Workstation 7.1.4 (or VMware Player 3.1.4) on a regular PC (if that PC Supports VT) running Windows 7 x64.

Since Apple MacBook still don’t come with a TrackPoint (and having suffered from RSI, that is about the only pointing device I can use) there are only two options for me:

  1. Go the route described above
  2. Use an external USB TrackPoint keyboard with a Mac
    (traveling with a huge external USB keyboard, I’d look like my long time friend Mark Miller from DevExpress, who also suffered from RSI)
    (boy I wish there was a wireless ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard)

SwitchResX helped me switch my Mac machine to 1360×768 and 1888×1062

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/12/24

A while ago, I got involved in Mac programming again after more than a decade of absence.
It felt like a warm reunion.

A Mac Mini Server serves as a development machine: it is about the same price as a regular Mac Mini, but packs 2 HDDs which for me is more useful than one HDD and a DVD player.

However, living in the Windows world for a long time long, and having had RSI in the DOS era almost two decades ago, I had a few wishes for using it.

The first was keyboard wise. The second is custom resolutions. Read the rest of this entry »

Nick Hodges | The End of the Chow Line

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/07/30

From the comments on Nick’s excellent post (that instantly made me feel hungry <g>):

If you find your developers bringing in their own equipment to work then you know there is a problem.

That reminds me of this story: Read the rest of this entry »
