Mac Tune Up Giveaway

August 24th, 2009 @ 9:35am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I was converted from PC to a Mac in 2007 and I haven’t looked back. The transition took a bit of time (mostly because of my nerves and I was paranoid I’d lose all data in a big fiery mess) and I’m not sure I would have taken the plunge if not for the support […]

John comes from a proud line of Macintosh users and in 2007 he converted me into an Apple fan girl — and I haven’t looked back. Recently we needed to upgrade our arsenal (you know since having a Powerbook, Macbook, and iMac just wasn’t enough) and were on the market for a shiny new Macbook […]

New MacBook and MacBook Pro from Apple

October 14th, 2008 @ 1:59pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’ve had my MacBook since early 2007 and although switching wasn’t easy (for someone who grew up on Microsoft… and who doesn’t do well with change) I shut down my Frankenbox PC that very day and it hasn’t been fired up since. Today Apple announced their new 13 inch MacBook and 15 inch MacBook Pro, […]

I’ve been using Firefox for about four years and they recently unleashed Firefox 3 which touts: Increased security, wicked-fast loading times, heightened security, and new UI improvements, including default themes for different operating systems and new download manager [wiki] not to mention basics like tabbed browsing and spell-checker.

June 19th, 2008 @ 11:53am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I started doing screencasts in a professional capacity last year and since then the tools have become much easier to use and I’m finding folks are really receptive to the “quick tips” I’ve been offering.
