#1: Get TinkerTool

It has a whole mess of useful tweaks in it and it’s free. Just get it, you won’t be sorry:

#2: Use Go -> Go to Folder to jump to Finder folders

Shift-Command-G for quicker access, use Tab for auto-complete of folder names. Works in Open/Save dialogs but is case-sensitive there for some reason.

1/4 Of HDTV Owners Do Not Realize They Are Not Watching HDTV March 1, 2007

If you didn’t understand what the title of the article meant, you’re probably one of the people’s we’re talking about. According to AZ Central:

Anyone who thinks consumers understand high-definition television should consider a recent survey by Leichtman Research Group.It concluded that close to one-half of the 24 million households with HDTVs don’t actually watch high-definition programs because they haven’t obtained the necessary hardware from their cable, phone or satellite operators.

And about one half of those viewers – about six million – don’t even realize they’re not watching HDTV. Bruce Leichtman, the market research firm’s president, figures the confusion is partly because the consumers spend so much money on the set they can’t believe they’re not getting what they paid for. “This is cognitive dissonance,” he says.

Attention: If you have an HDTV you need to an HD antenna or a HD capable cable box or an HD satellite dish. Something. If you don’t, you are not watching HDTV. Also, not every channel is going to magically be in HD if you buy an HDTV. For pete’s sake! —MEGHANN MARCO
