    RSS client Reeder 3 releases public beta for OS X Yosemite




    We know the developer behind the popular RSS client Reeder has been working on a version 3.0 update for OS X 10.10 Yosemite as we last saw a teaser in April. Today users get the first chance to try out the redesigned RSS service reader as the first public beta for Reeder 3 has gone live. The updated version sports a user interface designed for Yosemite and beyond, more themes for making reading comfortable, and even a few OS X El Capitan features. Reeder says the new version will be available as a free update to current Reeder 2 customers when it’s completed.

    For now, anyone can try out the public beta of Reeder 3 for Mac. The app works with many popular post-Google News RSS services including Feedly and Feed Wrangler as well as read-it-later services like Instapaper, a new addition to the app, and Readability. Reeder can also be used as a local standalone RSS client without syncing features.

    Aside from the visual refresh including a new icon and added themes, the new version also includes features like private browsing and better smart folder support.






    Reeder users running OS X El Capitan either in developer beta or public beta will appreciate support for Apple’s new San Francisco system font. Reeder 3 also supports El Cap’s new split-screen feature when using two full-screen apps side-by-side.

    Reeder 3 public beta requires OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later. You can grab the public beta for free from reederapp.com, and Reeder 2 is available for $9.99 in the Mac App Store. You can buy the current version and update to the new version when it’s complete.

    OS X 10.10.5 closes DYLD vulnerability, fixes bug and performance issues




    Apple on Thursday released the finished version of OS X 10.10.5, a maintenance update for Yosemite that mostly concentrates on bugfixes and security issues, including the DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE privilege escalation exploit.

    The update also solves Mail compatibility problems with some email servers, and quashes a Photos bug that prevented importing GoPro videos. QuickTime Player should once again be able to play Windows Media files. Across the OS, Apple has made various performance improvements.

    The DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE vulnerability allowed an installer to gain root access without entering a password, from which point it could insert further software such as adware.

    OS X 10.10.5 can be downloaded via the Updates tab at the Mac App Store.

    The release will likely be the last major update for Yosemite, as OS X 10.11 – El Capitan – is due to ship sometime this fall.

    How to Show All Possible Screen Resolutions for a Display in Mac OS X





    Though it’s generally recommended to use the ‘Default for display’ screen resolution option, Mac users who connect their computer to an external display or TV may find it helpful to be able to see, access, and use all possible display resolutions for a particular screen. This can be particularly useful if a display is either showing at an incorrect screen resolution, or if you’d like to use a specific resolution that is not shown in the available ‘Scaled’ resolutions list of OS X.


    Reveal All Possible Screen Resolutions for a Display Connected to a Mac

    This works to reveal additional screen resolution choices for any display connected to a modern Mac, it also applies to all modern versions of OS X:

    Open System Preferences from the  Apple menu in OS X
    Click on “Display”
    Under the ‘Display’ tab, hold down the OPTION / ALT key while you press on the ‘Scaled’ button alongside Resolution to reveal all available screen resolution options for the display
    Choose the resolution desired from the complete list of available screen resolutions, then close out of System Preferences as usual







    You must hold the Option key when clicking on ‘Scaled’ to reveal all possible screen resolutions for the external display(s), and if you have multiple external displays in use on a Mac, you’ll want to hold the option key when choosing “Scaled” and selecting a resolution for each connected display.







    For example, here’s the default selection of “Scaled” resolutions shown on a particularly 24″ external display connected to a MacBook Pro:







    Now after holding down the OPTION key while clicking on the “Scaled” radio button, many additional screen resolutions are revealed as available to use:








    Though these additional choices become available, they may not necessarily look right, and they may not render correctly, so just because they’re shown as options does not necessarily indicate you should use them for that particular screen.

    Note this does not apply to Retina displays, where changing the resolution is a bit different and is only offered in scaled views rather than numerical resolutions anyway.

    As mentioned above, sometimes this trick can be necessary to be able to select the proper screen resolution for an external display, which, although it’s pretty rare, can present itself as an improperly set screen resolution, usually at a lower resolution than what the display can handle. If you encounter that problem, sometimes simply using the Detect Displays feature after disconnecting and reconnecting the screen to the Mac can be sufficient to have the external display find and use the proper screen resolution.

    Setting Wallpaper from the Command Line in Mac OS X




    Ever wished you could set a Macs wallpaper image from the command line in OS X? As a matter of fact, you can change the desktop background picture from the terminal, which can be useful for a variety of situations ranging from inclusion in a setup script, to remote management, automating, or whatever else you can think of.

    Of course, for most Mac users, you’ll set wallpaper from OS X System Preferences or by right-clicking on a picture somewhere in the file system, which is undoubtedly the fastest and most efficient means of changing the Macs desktop background, but for those who like to be a bit more hands on or who need to know how to adjust desktop background pictures from the command line, read on.

    To change the desktop wallpaper from the command line of OS X you will use the osascript command, which is actually just the command line front end to AppleScript, as you’ll see with some basic applescript in the syntax:

    osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to set desktop picture to POSIX file "/path/to/picture.jpg"'

    For example, to set a picture on the desktop called “cabo-san-lucas.jpg” as the wallpaper:

    $ osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to set desktop picture to POSIX file "~/Desktop/cabo-san-lucas.jpg"'

    There is no confirmation, the wallpaper will just change instantly.

    If you’re looking for some snazzy wallpaper to use for this, browse through our wallpaper collections here, there are many nice ones to choose.

    One potential hiccup with this approach is with multiple monitor setups, where the primary display wallpaper will change but the secondary display will not. There’s almost certainly a lengthier workaround for multi-display workstations, so if you happen to know the proper AppleScript syntax feel free to leave a comment with the details.

    Is using the terminal and osascript method to adjust wallpaper any faster than changing the background wallpaper the traditional ways or using “Set as Background” in Safari? For most users no, but the command line approach offers a few benefits that the other options don’t include, notably the ability to easily script a change of the desktop picture, and the ability to change the background wallpaper image remotely through SSH, which can be helpful in networked environments (or even for pranks).

    Browse Many Images Easier with Split View in Photos for Mac OS X




    The standard viewing window of Photos app in Mac OS X shows a series of thumbnails for each image, and if you double-click on any particular image it gets larger and takes over the app. If you wish to view the next picture, most users will click on the back button, then double-click on another picture, and repeat that process. It turns out there’s a quicker and debatably better way to browse through multiple images in Photos app quickly, and it’s by using the Split View option.

    Split View places the primary picture into focus on the right-side of the Photos app display window, with a split panel of thumbnails of other pictures in the same gallery visible on the left side. Simply clicking on another picture on the left split thumbnail view makes that picture open on the right side.

    You won’t find the option available instantly in Photos app on the Mac, but here’s how you can access the split screen thumbnail view quickly in Photos for OS X.

    Open Photos app if you haven’t done so yet
    Double-click on any image to open it as the primary focus in Photos app as usual
    Now look in the Photos app toolbar and click on the little split view icon as shown in the screenshot to instantly switch to Split View





    Here’s what Split View looks like, note the thumbnails on the left side from the same gallery / event, shown alongside the currently active image in Photos app:







    With split view you’ll see thumbnails for all other images within that same gallery, which usually means other photos imported from the same date or event. Click on any picture to make it the focal point of Photos app while maintaining the split screen view.

    You can also hover over the left or right of an active picture to reveal subtle backward and forward arrows, and using those you can navigate beyond the current date or event and skip into the next one in the Photos app library, with the thumbnails on the left side automatically updating accordingly.

    Split screen view is useful enough that once you start using it, you’ll likely keep using it in Photos app, as it does offer a simpler way to navigate through many images in the library. Of course, if you don’t ant to see Split View anymore, just click on the toolbar button again to disable it instantaneously.

    Had to replace Hard drive cable and lost OPSYS (yosemity).
    tried to clone HD using Snow leopard opsys. with no result.
    Thinking- Bios might be programmed to accept only original yosemity.
    If so, would it help to clear BIOS by shorting CMos??
    Would appreciate any HELP.

    Right, I would like to move this to a more appropriate forum, rather than having it tagging onto the end of a completely unrelated thread. Can you tell me what type of Mac it is you have?

    But, in short, Intel Macs do not have a BIOS. They use a system called EFI instead, along with OpenFirmware. If your hard drive is not working after changing a cable then I would suggest that either the cable isn't seated correctly, the hard drive is damaged or corrupt, or you have 'damaged' something else inside your Mac.
