What's the Problem with Google Glass?
I remember listening to music on my iPhone one morning in the salty, rust-tinged gym at the Dolphin Club, one of the oldest swimming and boating clubs in San Francisco. An elderly man in a Speedo tapped me on the shoulder. “We don’t do that here,” he said, pointing to my headphones as I removed them. “The Walkman effect,” a term coined by the music scholar Shuhei Hosokawa in 1984, refers to the disconnection between a person using headphones to listen to music and her surroundings.
This is perhaps the most useful keyboard shortcut you can learn, and it's very simple. When you want to move back to a program that you have already opened, instead of moving the mouse cursor down to the program's icon on the tool bar, just Command-Tab to bring up the panel displaying all open programs and while holding down the Command key keep tapping that tab key until the desired program is selected and then let go of both keys.
Command-Shift-Tab = Switch to the previous program
If you accidentally go past the program that you were looking for while tapping on the Tab key then hold down the Shift key (while still holding the Command key down) and tap the Tab key again and the selector moves backwards to the previous program.

The 10 best places to eat and drink in Adelaide
Adelaide’s restaurant and bar scene is suddenly exciting again. In the 1990s, the city led Australia with innovative, adventurous dining, but then the inspiration stalled.
Adelaide still had the best food market in Australia – in fact one of the best in the world, with the Adelaide Central Market. It still had one of the best “eat streets”, Gouger Street, which remains a mecca for polyglot dining. It had great coffee houses, such as Lucia’s in the central market.
But in the past year, driven partly by new, relaxed licensing laws which has brought a swarm of new wine bars and cafes, Adelaide is glowing again as new chefs and restaurants hit winning formulas and rake in the customers.
Here are the best of them – and some old favourites.
