MacNotables #1224: Ted Landau Dives Into The Library Folder and Likes The Samsung Verdict

Ted Landau approves of the Apple v. Samsung verdict, and tells us why. Then, Ted shows his rebellious side when he explains why it is OK to go against Apple’s wishes and explore the OS X Library folder. With a little caution and a little understanding, it can be very useful to know what is in the folder that Apple wants you to to avoid. Ted tells us what’s hiding there and what you can do with it.
