Radar: Spotlight doesn’t find files if first criteria is file format

While working on my talks for Mobiconf next week, I was looking for a specific file. There I got stumped because Finder wouldn’t show me any files matching my search criteria. Oh well, another day another bug report. This one is nice because I could easily demonstrate it with a screencast.

Dismissal Completion Handler

While working on an additional section for my book, I encountered a tricky situation. Pause for a moment and ponder how you would solve this: You present a modal view controller.
