Dwele's "Subject"

Detroit’s Dwele (who you may know from his work with Slum Village) has released his first solo album, “Subject.” His lyrics and themes are not radically divergent from those of other R&B artists, but the overall sound is far more interesting than standard Top 40 fare. His use of overdubbing is reminiscent of Marvin Gaye’s. Good stuff.

It lingers . . .

A few minor UI gripes:

  1. Hold Shift while clicking on a Finder window’s toolbar display toggle widget (the Tic-Tac shaped one in the upper right). Handy dandy. Now try this in any other application with a toolbar. It doesn’t work. Phooey.
  2. Depress Command while clicking the display toggle widget in the Finder. Nothing. Try it in Mail (or OmniWeb). Neato.

These are surely not the biggest of UI problems, but they are inconsistencies that ought be corrected. Supposedly, the Cocoa and Carbon frameworks did at one point behave identically, but this was broken before the initial 10.0 release.
