I’m a big fan of computers that I can take with me everywhere I go. For most people, the smartphone in their pocket is the most active computer that they use for pretty much everything. Not me, though. I use my iPhone mostly for notification of emails, messages, social media, some YouTube and Netflix (mostly sitcoms), and starting recently, reading books.Read more
It was only a matter of time until I published a post dedicated to the issues I’ve been having with my 2017 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
Seeing the trend of people having issues with the MacBook Pro that’s been going around the web, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
It wasn’t too long ago when MacBook Pros were the best in the industry. I had the luck of enjoying the glorious days with my 2015 MacBook Pro. It didn’t fail once. I thoroughly enjoyed that device until the day I gave it back.Read more
The initial ride of having only USB-C ports on MacBook Pros since 2016 is over. However, the dongle situation is not. In addition to dongles, you may want to pick up a handful of other accessories for your new (or existing) MacBook Pro to keep it safe and clean. Here are 3 must-have 2018 MacBook Pro accessories that I highly recommend.
Let’s start with the protection of your new MacBook Pro or MacBook Air 2018. I personally do not like putting any hard case on my laptop. I had one on my MacBook Pro 2015 model, but I didn’t really like it. Here’s why:

And finally, when I got rid of the case altogether, there were signs of wear thanks to the hardcover shell. I regretted putting that on my MacBook Pro a lot.
So, after I got the 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, I opted for a sleeve.Read more
Years ago, I purchased a Kindle Paperwhite from Best Buy during one of my trips to the United States. I was hoping to get back into the habit of reading. It didn’t work. I was not carrying it with me everywhere and I found it cumbersome to buy books on Kindle (with a non-US credit card) or download and upload PDF copies of what I wanted to read. I eventually sold it.
Years later, I’ve found the joy of reading again. Nothing trumps the proper feeling of opening a printed book and smelling it as you turn the pages. But let’s be realistic here: I’m not an avid book reader and in order to actually finish reading a book. I had to be practical.
I had to use something to read the book that I’d carry with me all the time. I had to have access to the book when I was unexpectedly stuck in traffic, waiting at the doctor’s office, or simply bored. The one thing that I knew I’d always have with me, the one thing that I’d remember first to bring with me no matter where I went, was the iPhone.Read more
