comment How to stop OS X from switching input method (keyboard layout) automatically?
Have also just noticed that for some applications, it is not even possible to select "British - Microsoft" e.g. Preview, QuickTimeplayer. Other applications like firefox and itunes work fine (although they do still keep switching back to swiss german)

Naah. zamzar is useless at recognising spaces even at 600 dpi, will try another tool for conversion.

Looks nice, but I don't really want to have to pull my camera out when I want to scan a doc. I can see how that might be nice if you do not have a scanner or are out and about with your phone though.

Have rescanned at 600dpi, am just waiting (forever) for zamzar to send me the converted doc....I guess when it's free you cannot expect too much, but nearly a day!? Too long

i'm on a quadcore imac with 4gb of ram, with not much running, so i'd be surprised...i am unable to spot a pattern as to why it occurs, it's very annoying though

comment iMac keyboard alternative
It is not an exact duplicate. First line of other post "it does not need to be wireless". My criteria "wireless". ffs.

comment Need a non-Mac keyboard alternative for Mac users
Personal annoyances with that particular keyboard are - No USB ports - No right hand Windows key (astonishing considering this is an MS product) - The zoom control is pointless unless you reconfigure it as a scroller - The space bar is awful, the curved design makes it really hard to press - It is not wireless - I would prefer a volume knob like you get on the freebie Dell keyboards

comment howto open new firefox window without toolbars, tabs, addins etc ? (shortcut rather than javascript)
Yes but I'm lazy and want it to happen with one shortcut if possible. :) plus this won't get rid of the main menu bar.
