Crocs Shipping & Handling is 5 times the product price

My son has some new crocs we bought at a Crocs store in Florida. The clerk was very sweet and switched the straps so he could have a different strap color. But, we didn’t know the rivet on the strap was broken until we had left the area.

I was happy to find replacement rivets in a 4 pack available on the Crocs site. I couldn’t find them anyplace else, and $.99 seemed like a fair enough price.

When I went to check out, I got some serious sticker shock. $4.99 for shipping and handling may make sense when you buy $20 shoes, but a $.99 pack of replacement parts?!

How to remove beta Xcode now that XCode has been released

How to uninstall beta versions of Xcode from your Mac.

Xcode

Now that iTunes 10.5, iOS5 and the new Xcode have been released, it is worth mentioning that to uninstall any beta installation you had, you should use the uninstaller.


sudo <Xcode>/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all

Where <Xcode> is the directory where you installed the beta Xcode.

I usually install the different versions into different directories (/Developer, /Developer5b3 etc).
