Facebook's chat service is quite possibly one of the most attractive features of the Billion dollar enterprise. As opposed to other chat services such as MSN messenger, Facebook allows you to chat with users without having their email ID and also without downloading any software; it works through your web browser. So to use this -
1. You'll need a facebook "username". Go to your facebook profile and it'll be in the url in the format 'http://www.facebook.com/your_username" where 'your_username' is your username.
2. Now open iChat from the applications folder in your mac or search for it on iChat.
3. Now press command-comma(,) to open iChat preferences.
4. Go to accounts within the preferences window and add a new account.
5. Fill in the following details -

There are some of us, who like to keep our files and folders organized by labeling and color coding the, be it the virtual ones ( on computers ) or even the physical one. Mac provides such an option to color code them which they call "labelling". So to do so, simply select an file or folder, right click on it and choose the color you want in the 'label' section. And thats it. Done.

It is no secret that the "Mighty Mouse" ( Apple Mouse before Magic Mouse ) was widely appreciated for its 360º capable scroller and its squeezable buttons on the side until people noticed that the scroller wasn't as sensational as one might imagine. As much as it hurts to say this, the mighty mouse was a rather flawed design. The scroller has a tiny space running all around its periphery which allowed small particles to go on and stick to the scroller thus damaging its scrolling capability. For example, I get many emails ( and I myself have experienced this problem ) that the mouse is scrolling only in one direction or, more often than not, none.
So how do we fix this ?
Perhaps some fancy solution ? Opening it up and rearranging something ? Not at all. Your best bet is to turn it upside down, press it down hard on a piece of paper and roll it back and forth vigorously for about 10 seconds. Turn it back up. Scroll a few times and use your new mouse.
