Which Is Best, A MacBook Air Or MacBook Pro? Both Models Compared Side-By-Side

You might think Apple’s relatively small laptop selection would make choosing a model easy. For some people, that’s true, but for others the tight range of options and prices makes for a difficult choice. A consumer with $1,200 could end up looking at both versions of the Air and the 13-inch Pro. I think all of the MacBooks are a good choice, but the reasons why are various. I’ll help you sort through the clutter and decide which MacBook is for you.

5 People Who Might Google You & What They Might Find

It was only 15 years ago that the best you could do to find a person online was look for him on ICQ and hope you find his name. If you managed to do that, you were actually nowhere nearer to knowing anything about this person, except for the fact he owns an ICQ account. If you were very brave, you might have requested to add that person to your contacts, just to see what happens.

Use This Gmail Trick To Receive POP Emails On IMAP-Only Devices

Why isn’t POP extinct yet? Good question! Unfortunately, some mail providers (most notably ISPs) still aren’t supporting IMAP. You’re stuck with POP.

It only takes Google’s thousands of servers half a second to query approximately 50 billion indexed pages, it takes you significantly longer to scan only the first page of search results. On top of that, you are likely to digress and open irrelevant sites.

Race Against Rising Lava & Collect Diamonds: Call Of Carlos for Windows Phone

It’s unusual for me to find a platform game that I would call fun (see my review of ilomilo for more on this), even more unusual that I should return to it again and again. But that is exactly what has been happening with Call of Carlos, a free Windows Phone game that features a jumping diamond miner, his versatile pickaxe and some fast-rising molten lava! Surely it can’t be the promise of virtual riches as Carlos collects the diamonds, so what is the attraction?

A Perfect Operating System? Getting Windows Style Features In OS X

Bring the best features of Windows to OS X. You did not read that incorrectly. Many Mac users won’t admit it, but there are some pretty nice features in Windows – particularly Windows 7 and later. Maximizing apps in a way that isn’t seemingly random, resizing your windows by dragging them to a particular side or easily hiding notification icons are just a few things Microsoft’s brought to the desktop that Apple hasn’t got around to (yet?)
