Apple is well known for producing expensive products. Part of it is brand recognition, part of it is market forces, and part of it is reputation. If you want an Apple device, you’ll likely need to spend some money. But you can get what is essentially a new device for at least fifteen percent less […]
Just recently, news came out that Apple was being sued over their MacBook Pros. Some lawyers have filed a class action lawsuit about the reliability issues in the keyboards attached to the current model of MacBook Pro. These keyboards have anecdotally shown themselves to be unreliable and prone to failure or malfunction based on the […]
When Mac apps misbehave, sometimes you need to force them to shut down. This can happen when the app enters an infinite loop, crashes, hangs or otherwise ceases responding to user input. While it’s never an ideal way to close an application, it doesn’t generally hurt to force quit Mac applications. While it does rip […]
Augmented reality apps, or AR apps, have the potential to make a big splash in the technology world.
As the corporate use of private data grows, consumers are more and more interested in protecting the content of their sensitive communications. Many messenger apps offer end-to-end communication, but email remains the most popular method of communication.

By providing an easy way to hide information from prying eyes, modern cryptography algorithms allow private communications, online banking, and digital shopping to take place all across […]
Two years ago we wrote about Wrike’s project management software, and how useful we found it. They’ve expanded their offerings since then, so it’s time to take a look and see what Wrike can do today.

There was once a time when CPU clock speed increased dramatically from year to year. In the 90s and early 2000s processors increased at incredible speeds, shooting from 60 MHz Pentium chips to gigahertz-level processors within a decade. Now, it seems that even high-end processors have stopped increasing their clock speeds. Dedicated overclockers can force […]
