If you would like to change your Xcode environment to use the Allman indention style (opening curly braces go on a new line), simply run this command from terminal:
defaults write com.apple.Xcode XCCodeSenseFormattingOptions -dict BlockSeparator \n

OK, as I’m sure some of you are already well aware, but just to reiterate: Macs are Cool.
As a Windows guy for the past twenty years or so, I’ve been using Macs more and more lately. I purchased one of the new 17-inch MacBook Pros recently, and I’ve really been enjoying the capabilities.
I’m a fan of VMWare as well. It’s a great product that allows you to run other operating systems in a virtual machine, which makes it great for me when I need to test software on some other OS.
I’ve been running Windows 7 on my MacBook under VMWare, and although it is certainly useable, the performance hasn’t really been blowing my hair back, so I decided to try using Apple’s Boot Camp to run Windows natively on a separate partition.
After setting up Boot Camp, I booted back into OS X and when I ran VMWare, I discovered it had the capability to virtualize my boot camp partition under OS X! This means that when I want the raw speed, I can boot into native Windows, but otherwise I can still launch the same OS under VMWare on OS X.
That’s just cool.
Apple has updated the MacBook pros with the latest Intel i5 and i7 processors this morning.
The 15 inch MacBook pro is now available with an 2.4 or 2.53 GHz i5 or a 2.66 GHz i7 Processor, and the 17 is now has the 2.53 GHz i5 processor.
