With Rich pretty much out of commission this week and my very last minute preparation for Source Boston underway, this week’s post with be a short one. Plus I need to install the current Mac OS X patches and reboot all of the computers in the house. That little bouncing icon is finally going to get it’s way. On that note, has anyone out there ever looked at the viability of polluting the Apple downloads? Every time I click one of these I am always uncertain why I trust it or how I could verify the contents if I really wanted to. But at the moment, that sounds like too much work to investigate. Perhaps I should simply remain happy and ignorant of the process.

  • Rich: Pass.
