WebDAV – dock shortcut

I wanted to build on the Mac Staff Home- dock shortcut by utilising WebDAV. This version is better because it allows you to use a single dock icon to connect to all your shares at once (as per your WebDAV setup). It also means the shares are available off campus.

eBoard Solutions

update (8 March 2012): The new Apple TV released this morning provides 1080p HD – it also runs on iOS5.1. The current process will not work with the new Apple TV or iOS5.1. If you update your Apple TV to iOS5.1 you currently will not be able to use the device as an eBoard. FireCore will undoubtedly release a […]
