OCZ files for bankruptcy

Kristian Vättö for Anandtech:

OCZ has just issued a press release announcing their filing for bankruptcy, which was expected since Nasdaq had halted the trading of OCZ stock earlier today. OCZ has had financial issues for quite a long time and it was just a matter of time before the inevitable happened. While OCZ did try to change its course by reforming their product portfolio when Ryan Petersen, the former CEO of OCZ, stepped down, it seems that the efforts weren’t enough to make the business profitable.

Such a shame. I’ve owned several OCZ products over the years and have always been a fan.

Multiple Vaults in 1Password 4 for Mac

An often-overlooked feature of 1Password 4 for Mac is Multiple Vaults:

Each vault can be assigned a custom icon, colour, and password. It even has its own sync settings, which means you can sync your primary vault with iCloud, for example, and a work/team vault with a shared Dropbox folder.

I’ve recently started a new job and use this function on my work Mac, it’s just great. Keeping my work-related passwords separate from my personal ones means I can keep everything compartmentalised, ensuring I don’t litter my own 1Password vault with server logins and intranet sites that I really don’t need outside of work.

It’s by no means completely fluid and is only applicable on 1Password for Mac, but it works very well indeed.

Feed Wrangler service down

Mike Evans reports that the Feed Wrangler service has been down for over 24 hours:

FeedWrangler has disappeared. For over 24 hours there have been no RSS feed updates and the feedwrangler.net website has been dead. This isn’t the first time there has been an outage since many of us migrated from defunct Google Reader last July. But the disturbing thing about this breakdown, apart from the long period, is that there is absolutely no news. Twitter isn’t broken and FeedWrangler developer David Smith has been ominously silent for over four days.

I sure hope everything’s ok. Feed Wrangler is very much a one-man operation so to not hear anything from it or David could indicate something more concerning than just a service outage.

Update: He’s ok!

iCloud Photo Stream limit removed

From the Apple Knowledge Base:

There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload to My Photo Stream over time, but iCloud limits the number of photos that can be uploaded within a given hour, day, or month to prevent unintended or excessive use.

Via Bradley Chambers

Update: maybe not. Seems the description is very ambiguous.
