I didn't realise there was an option there, must have been on by default when I set it up, but yes it's there on both machines under recent items selecter, thats' weird it's not showing on your Air then?
I gather you are using either PB4 or DevGM?
Do you get all the other new features working, Personal Hotspot, Phone calls from your Mac etc?
Another silly question probably, but you have paired your phone to the Air haven't you?

Anyone managed to get HandOff working with a mid-2011 11" air? Do I need to pair with Btooth on my iPhone first? Works fine on my iMac, but not the Air.

I don't even have the option to turn on HandOff in the Air pref panel. But checking system prefs shows that it does have the correct BTooth to work with HandOff.

I am running Yosemite Beta 3 on the Air (but also on the iMac)

Hi +Allison Sheridan - thanks for the link.

I have already done that, and can confirm that the Air show the correct version.

But I still can see the option to turn it on in system prefs.

Hi, Yep it says 0x6

...I wondered if it was just a beta thing, but then the iMac is running the same Beta 3

Why Apple's streaming went so wrong...
Add a location to your Tweets. When you tweet with a location, Twitter stores that location. You can switch location on/off before each Tweet and always have the option to delete your location history. Learn more. Turn location on. Not now. Turn off location ...

Hi - Anyone using MarsEdit with WordPress? I can post new posts, but editing existing posts is causing an error when trying to send the changes back to WordPress. Any ideas?

The issue was being caused by a security setting server side. Siteground had to whitelist something their end, but all working now.

Hi Don,

Thanks for the second part of WordPress - Just one quick question... I have the Jetpack / Publicise option set-up on westyblog.com exactly as you do. My question is around how Facebook choices an image when it cross posts, and, more importantly, why it doesn't resize the image to fit in the Facebook image box for the post.

It looks awful - Seems to pick up part of my site banner image...

App Suggestions  - 
 
Not a show suggestion, but a head-up for a great app that has removed all my loyalty cards from my wallet and stored them for me. The free Stocard app: http://www.stocardapp.com/download

It's the only one I have found so far that can be made UK specific.

Surely this is how Passbook should work?!
No more plastic cards! Stocard is a free app for Android and IPhone that stores all your loyalty cards on your phone.

Thanks Don!

Although very much a Work in Progress – I am pleased to announce that WestyPhotography now has a WordPress blog. As usual, Don McAllister’s Screencastsonline is very much to blame…  Not only did Don set-up his own WordPress site recently – and great it…
