A MacOS application to grab an argument and set system Clipboard as per argument text.
How it works?
Under the hood it’s invoking pbcopy as below:
if [[ -z "$1" ]]
osascript -e 'display notification "Nothing copied!" with title "Param2Clipboard"'
echo "$1" | pbcopy
osascript -e 'display notification "Parameter copied to the Clipboard!" with title "Param2Clipboard"'

It turned out to be part of PlantronicsHub software. I will disable to for a while an see how it will behave.
Another embarrassing problem with my MBP: when scrolling in e.g. Chrome, Safari or actually – any other window, there is annoying lag. When you scroll continuously, it’s more or less fine, but when you pause to read and then want to scroll, it stutters.
After a bit checking here and there, it turned out that if I increased keyboard backlight timeout from 5 seconds to 1 minute, the problem has been worked around!
