Change iCal and Address Book skin

Lion brings a new look to the Address Book and iCal. Since I’m not a real fan of the new skin, I was glad to hear that a little tool from 16-year old developer Fredrik W. called Lion Tweaks, is able to change it to the regular Apple Aluminum look. You can grab a copy here or download it directly from here. There are a lot more tweaks inside this tool, so see please check it out!

Using Eclipse in Fullscreen Mode under Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Since the recent OS update enabled fullscreen applications, all I wanted to do was using Eclipse in Fullscreen mode. But since the most recent eclipse release does not support this feature it seemed impossible. But now Alex Blewitt came to the rescue. In his recent blog post he describes what is necessary to make eclipse fullscreen compatible.  So go ahead and read it here or open Eclipse > Install New Software > Add “” and install the extension. Thanks Alex!
