Mac OSX Lion Tech Tip: Fullscreen Support for Browsers and Cocoa Apps is Available!
Bill Malchisky    

Currently, Lion's Fullscreen support is limited to Safari, iLife apps (e.g. GarageBand), and some of the standard Apple provided OSX tool at the moment. I prefer to have apps that do not take-up the full screen unless I specifically request it, as with document editing programs. That has been one of the benefits of the Mac environment and in one way what distinguished itself from Windows. What is the benefit of Safari full screen on a 27" monitor? Most Windows machines do not come with such a monitor by default, so iMacs have a clear advantage here. The difference with simply maximizing a window and getting Fullscreen support is that the application is designed to use all of the space on your monitor--in theory.

Having stated that, Apple is moving in this direction. At the current time, Chrome and Firefox are not enabled for Fullscreen mode. Additionally, Cocoa apps are not able to do so...  till now!

Enter Maximizer. This is a SIMBL plugin providing Fullscreen support with Cocoa apps that are not currently supporting Fullscreen. Plus Chrome and Firefox support. Carbon apps are excluded currently. The application is in beta, so read the caveats on the page. Be mindful of the support email link on the page, as the developer wants to make it better. So if you see any anomalies, or worse, do send a note with the simple requested support info.

One great aspect of being in the tech space, individual developers creating solutions to fill a void in the marketplace...and much faster than larger enterprises ever could. Great to see such ingenuity.

Two quick notes:
1) If you are curious about Apple's hits and misses with Fullscreen support in Lion, here is a good article;
2) Recall from yesterday's post that Fullscreen does not allow for proper real estate management in a dual-head configuration, leaving the other display with a linen background; presuming Apple will address this in a future release.

Linux Bash Bug - Shellshock - FINAL FIX RELEASED: Get Patched (AIX, Mac Too)
Mon, Sep 29th 2014 6:13a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Author's Note: Thank you to the ICS community for their tremendous support of my first Shellshock post. For those that read it early, you received critical information 14-72 hours before many sites released their stories. Several readers were fully patched before big names tweeted the issue. You were well ahead of the curve. Shellshock stories released over the weekend proved outdated and incomplete. This post provides better information faster. I am grateful for your support.

Linux Bash Bug - Shellshock - is Real: Get Patched (Mac Too)
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 6:13a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
This is ugly, but fortunately you just have to update to a fixed Bash version and your fine (for now). No need to reboot your system either. Red Hat is out early on this and escalated this appropriately. Their first round of updates got all but one exploit permutation, so they re-issued another bug identifier and are working to close it soon. Their initial timeline: Red Hat announced the bug on 14 Sep, had a proposed upstream patch seven hours later (0500h 15 Sep), backported it to Bash 3.0, [read] Keywords: domino apple application bug centos enterprise linux mac red hat redhat security ubuntu

After three years of working with IBM, I am proud to make the first public announcement of the beta milestone of a new IBM community feedback continuity tool entitled, Voice of the Partner. ICS is behind this at the highest levels and there is a strong desire within IBM to make this a success. Imagine that as a partner you have a tool where you can input ideas and concerns to IBM and receive a response in a meaningful way, that also ensures continuity of feedback throughout the issue's life [read] Keywords: ibm community

IBM’s Lost Art of Installation is Costing Them Revenue
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 3:12p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Preface - As I started this entry in June and in doing research to articulate the point, the case for installation simplicity grew dramatically. This post commences by illustrating the present state, how IBM did better previously (and still does with a different product), three customer examples of revenue impact, and closes with an offered solution for the present state.
