How Safe Is Your Computer During The Airline Ban?

''

Air travel – especially long flights – can bring out the best or worst in people. Being cooped up in your seat for hours and hours on end can leave you bored and easily annoyed. Parents with young kids in tow are even more stressed out as traveling on a plane with toddlers, for instance, is a likely recipe for disaster. Fortunately, electronic gadgets like tablets and computers make air travel a little bit bearable for most of us. It can keep both the young and the old entertained as our destination gets nearer.

The most recent electronics airline ban (refers to any electronic gadget that is bigger than the usual smartphone device) requires travelers from eight North African and Middle Eastern countries to check in their electronic devices during travel to the United States. And just a couple days ago, the U.K. also imposed the same security measures.

The United States announced a new rule that bans bigger-than-a-smartphone electronics from the airline cabin on certain flights to the United States including laptops, tablets and cameras. The rules apply to

The Edge Of An Apple Macbook

Mac users are usually long-time Apple users. From using the bulky old Macs to the more modern and sleek Macbook Pros, they have established a strong bond between them and their device. No one will argue that Macbooks are great. And they are also built to last a long time, unlike most Windows PC. Older Mac models and newer Macbook pros, they all do the same job. Mac users do not feel that they need to continually make an upgrade because their device still works.

But while the majority won’t trade their Macbooks for a Windows PC anytime soon, a growing number of Mac users are actually considering of making the switch from Mac to Windows because of lingering hard drive problems.

There are lots of things that Apple needs to fix, but one of the most glaring right now is the product line. Sure, we’re on the usual annual cycle of iPhone upgrades. We’ve seen new iPads in recent memory. But what about the Mac? The venerable computer that used to be Apple’s core product is now just

Reboot Your Macbook Pro

Technology is continually progressing and computing updates are constantly released to refine computer features for a smooth computing experience. There have been many creative names given to the operating systems of android smartphones while Windows OS remained in the backseat and did its thing, there has been little talk regarding Apple iOS much more that of an update.

And over the years, the lack of updates and new releases from the Apple’s Macbook line is a cause of concern for Macbook users who are wondering when they can upgrade their computers to match their growing computing needs. The Apple computer line is also not immune from various iOS issues. Let’s take the macOS Sierra, for instance, which made its debut last year and a couple of issues you immediately face once using this operating system.

Before installing macOS Sierra, uninstall or disable any antivirus software on your Mac, as that may be causing issues.

Press the power button on your machine while holding down the Shift key on your keyboard. Boot your Mac into Safe mode, then try installing

Protecting Your Server From Hackers

''

Most businesses, offices, and organizations have now gone digital. It means that most processes are no longer done the usual pen and paper way but rather computerized. Important company or business records or files are encoded on a computer for ease of use and convenience. You can just pull one up when you need it and no longer need to sort through piles of documents to get what you need.

No matter how convenient this advanced technology has made everyone’s life, it also has its flaws. Computer servers are at high risk of hacking. Hackers will do their best to steal important data for profit or mess with a server’s system to show the world how unstoppable they have become.

Even big companies like Apple have server issues. And Apple will not sit around and put at risk the safety and security of their users and their data.

A new report today from The Information shares that Apple found potential security issues with at least one server early last year. Apple purchased the server from Super Micro Computer and

Is There A Reason To Rejoice Among Macbook Pro Users, Or Not?

Apple users are a loyal bunch. They stick together and have likely started with an Apple computer as their first computer. Even though the company has not released a new computer line for a while now or even issue regular updates to existing ones, MacBook Pro users continue to use their Apple computer as they wait for the next big thing that Apple has to offer.

There is a buzz in the tech world about a possible MacBook Pro release early this year but since it is almost the end of the first quarter, people are geared up for a possible release in April.

We’ve had a long wait for the new Mac Pro. The current Mac Pro model was announced at WWDC in June 2013, shipping that December, and, for a top-of-the range system, the Mac Pro is looking pretty long in the tooth. In addition, many of the Mac Pro’s traditional creative professional audience (videographers, designers, photographers) have hung onto their ancient Mac Pro towers that predate the 2013 redesign because their old Mac Pros, which could be

Leaving Your Lover: This MacBook Says Goodbye

As a long time Mac-enthusiast website, we have seen a lot of trends come and go. Certainly, as Macs tend to be somewhat “viral” in terms of their use, while, at least in my opinion, an “Opinion Leader”-platform, there are always fresh things to talk about. While Macs are certainly solid, they are prone to issues, and are about as far from flawless as you can get. So having seen a ton of Mac news since the dawn of time, there’s something about PC World’s “How To Switch From A Mac To A PC” that actually gets the interest a rollin’ But why would one switch from the classic Mac to Windows? The PCWorld writer has some interesting thoughts:

My beef with Apple is the lack of polish I’ve been seeing in the software over the past few years (don’t get me started on the state of iTunes), and the amount of trouble I’ve had personally with the hardware since investing $2,700 for my current laptop. My workflow has been plagued by graphical glitches, slowdowns, and occasional refusal

MacBook Pro: On The Outs With Apple?

What would your take be on a computer that had not been updated or upgrade in 1100 days? Would it be one of sadness, knowing that the writing is on the wall, knowing that sometime soon the machine would be lost to the ages? Or would it be a “wait and see”-approach for a machine that just hasn’t been out of the dark for almost 3 years?

The choice is certainly yours, but it’s not like CEO Tim Cook is passionate about the machines. How does this sound?

As usual, it was followed by a Q&A session during which Cook addressed questions from attendees who were interested in Apple’s plans for the future. One talking point was Apple’s apparent neglect of creative and professional users, who are worried the company is giving up on them.

Cook reassured investors this wasn’t the case. “You will see us do more in the pro area,” he said. “The pro area is very important to us. The creative area is very important to us in particular. You can expect to see us do more
