When I logged onto the Apple website last week to check out the new stuff, I was left looking at the “new” iPod nano for a while. The page has a photo with a few iPods and, among them, is one of the new clocks that incorporates the operating system removed from it. Specifically the Mickey Mouse one. I’ve always loved the original design of the most famous mouse of all time, so I thought it would be nice to copy it for use on the Mac. But, to be honest, I didn’t pay any more attention to it. In MacOSXHints they tell us how we can use Mickey Mouse’s clock in the Dashboard of our Mac , thanks to an old trick that if I’m not wrong is available from OS X 10.4.
We simply have to go to the page where the clock is, right-click on Mickey, select Open in the Dashboard…, and select the frame that I show after the jump (if we don’t do this, we won’t select the clock). Then we can make the capture a little bigger by stretching the corners and clicking Add at the top left. And that’s it, we can now enjoy the Mickey Mouse clock on our Mac.
