Quicksilver, a free, open sourced launchbar application has added support for Mac OS X Lion in the latest update.QuickSilver allows you to set your own shortcut/hot keys to launch other apps, windows, delete files – pretty much anything. The purpose of QuickSilver is to speed up your workflow.
This is the first major update for the app, which was made open-source years ago by original developers Blacktree Software. In addition to Lion support, the update also includes over 40 new feature additions, fixes and changes. Among those changes are automatic plugins updates and a brand new logo.
Quicksilver offers multiple interface choices, from a menu bar to a transparent bezel that hovers over your desktop. Its other features include a task viewer, a shelf for storing frequently accessed files, and a clipboard history. Quicksilver is a fantastic addition for anyone looking for alternative ways to launch applications from the Dock or to hunt through the Finder for files.Recent updates fixed many crashing and localization issues, and also updated Quicksilver to a faster default compiler.
The search function is very quick and powerful in Quicksilver and once you have found what you are looking for you can apply a number of actions like simply launching it, emailing or moving. What’s more Quicksilver adapts to the file it finds, so if it’s a document you will get to modify or send it, and if it’s an email you will get to email or copy it.
Environmental watchdog groups in China on Wednesday released a report detailing a 5-month investigation on electronic suppliers that they believe are used by Apple. According to the report, accessory manufacturer Kaedar Electronics and printed circuit board maker Unimicron have allegedly been discharging waste water and harmful gas from their plants in the Chinese city of Kunshan.
Yesterday, China’s Catcher Technology, announced it would shut one of its manufacturing plants in the Suzhou province after it was ordered to cease operations due to environmental issues connected with the factory.
Chinese regulators forced the closure after local residents reported bad odours being pumped out of the plant, after the company issuing an emergency bulletin on Sunday.
Catcher said the shutdown will impact October sales by a fifth, assuming plant improvement works are completed and approved by regulators by the end of the month. The company had sales of T$21.8bn ($725m) last year, with analysts expecting an increase to T$37.1bn this year. Its stock fell by nearly the daily limit of 7 per cent on Monday.
Since 2007, more than nine people have suffered or died from cancer in the village, which has a population of fewer than 60. Apple declined to say if the companies named were in fact its suppliers, but company spokeswoman Carolyn Wu, responding to the report, said, ‘Apple is committed to driving the highest standards of social responsibility throughout our supply base.

Mac/Android: Skitch, one of the most popular screen capture tools was just bought today by the company that owns popular note-taking tool Evernote. What does that mean for us? The full version is now free (a $19.95 savings) and there’s a new Android app.
It looks like the Skitch Android app is more of a photo-taking and annotation app rather than a screen grabbing one, unfortunately (Android really could use easy screen grabbing).
But the completely freeness of Skitch on the Mac is very nice—no more ads, trial versions or restrictions. Plus, if you’re an Evernote user, now you have a more streamlined experience working with screen captures: drag them from Skitch into Evernote or drag photos from Evernote to Skitch where you can annotate them. Evernote promises much more is to come too
