Here’s The Latest And Greatest OS X Yosemite Has To Offer

The batch file rename feature is definitely welcomed

From MacStories:

A batch renaming option has been added to the Finder in Yosemite: if you need to rename multiple files at once, select them, then choose “Rename [x] Items…” from the contextual menu. This will open a modal dialog with three options to batch rename files: Replace Text, Add Text, and Format. The first two are rather self-explanatory: one replaces a string of text found in the filename and the other can append or prepend text to the filename. Format is more advanced, as it lets you pick a format name with index, date, or counter to be placed before or after the filename with an option for a custom format as well.

Dope feature, especially for all my blogger folks who use pictures in their posts. If you didn’t know, for SEO juice, you should rename all your pictures to include the title of your post and/or keywords

…You’re welcome

Homeboy: Sounds Like My Kind Of Home-Security Camera

The Homeboy is a Wireless IP home-security camera that runs on a rechargeable battery that lasts for three months on a single charge. It streams video clips to the cloud when it detects movement, and can connect to you (and your ‘posse’…not joking) iPhone for monitoring while away.

The name alone is why I am here for this. I can see it now “Yo, I need to check in with my Homeboy to make sure nobody has copped anything from house…Son”

Yaaaasss
