  • iPhones Panorama Mode

    I’m lucky enough to be in Key West this week work on some improvements at our store here. The temperatures are a bit cool for Key West this week, but at least I wasn’t around for the blizzard that hit Vermont earlier in the week. While I’ve been down in Key West I’ve been mixing up work and play, and have been taking advantage once again of some amazing features on my iPhone. I continue to be...

  • Managing Your Apple ID

    Too many times when I am helping customers I get a blank stare when I ask for their Apple ID. Some quickly look through scraps of paper while others just start guessing. You Apple ID is the personal account you use to access Apple services like the App Store, iTunes Store, iCloud, iMessage, the Apple Online Store, FaceTime, and more. It includes the email address and password you use to sign ...

  • Rosa Parks

    Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an African American civil rights activist, whom the U.S. Congress later called “the first lady of civil rights”, and “the mother of the freedom movement”. Rosa Parks is one of my heroes that grace my wall by my desk in Vermont. I have this photo signed by Rosa in a place of honor. What a brave, strong and persistent woman! O...

  • Black History Month - Sojourner Truth

    Sojourner Truth was one of the most famous nineteenth-century black American women. She was an uneducated former slave who actively opposed slavery. Though she never learned to read or write, she became a moving speaker for black freedom and women’s rights. While many of her fellow black abolitionists spoke only to blacks, Truth spoke primarily to whites. While they spoke of violent uprisings, she...

She earned the nickname “The Negro Motorcycle Queen.” On her tours, Bessie Stringfield traveled through Brazil, Haiti and parts of Europe. Her next destination was...

    We are celebrating Black History Month all of February and today we will honor the memory of Frederick Douglass, a former slave that devoted his life to the abolition of slavery. Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass became one of the most respected orators and intellectuals of the time, advising Presidents on abolishing slavery, women’s rights and other topics. Frederick Augustus Washington B...

  • Apple Re-Paves The Street

    After several quarters of top-line revenue stagnation, Apple rebounded in the holiday quarter by returning to growth and posting their best financial results ever. That is a statement in and of itself. Apple has posted some pretty spectacular numbers but this was the best. Apple reported revenue of $78.4 billion and net quarterly profit of $17.9 billion, or $3.36 per diluted share, compared to ...

  • Customize Your Toolbar

    Many Mac users don’t realize just how customizable their Macs are, and a part of the Mac interface that’s simultaneously among the most useful and the most overlooked is the toolbar that appears in every Finder window. By default, the toolbar contains buttons for navigating back and forth, changing the view, arranging the files in the window, performing a variety of actions, sharing the selected...

  • ThunderUSB

    I will be getting my new MacBook Pro which will sport four Thunderbolt 3 ports and I am going to need to connect various things to my new Mac. Actually, I really only have my display because I have gone wireless with keyboard, mouse and printer. Back at my Vermont office, though, when I get back I will have a USB scanner, a USB keyboard, a USB backup drive and a display to deal with so I thought...

  • Certified for Safety!

    People are buying more and more technology online these days, and given the time of year, I think the topic of this article will be very timely. It also has to do with many of the things I’ve been writing about regarding electronics and electrical safety. In recent years there’s been a proliferation of tech companies (and random people on sites like ebay.com and amazon marketplace) selling all kin...

  • Use Tabs in Apps in Sierra

    We’ve all become accustomed to opening web pages in separate tabs in Safari, Google Chrome, and Firefox. In OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple gave us the capability to open different folders in tabs in Finder windows, making it easy to work in multiple folders with limited screen real estate. In macOS 10.12 Sierra, Apple has gone one step further, building tab support system-wide so you can open windo...

  • Filter Mailboxes in iOS 10

    If your e-mail load is like mine or just someone who’s an organization freak ( OK, also me ) then you will love some of the filtering features in iOS 10. I use my phone exclusively at times so being able to better navigate through my Mail app helps a lot. Apple has enhanced the Mail app in iOS 10 to help you filter your email and focus on what’s important. The filters are like searches in that all...

  • Clickity Clack

    You know, the weird thing is that the only class I ever got an “F” in was typing class. Now, I can type as fast as most people and actually the lessons in typing class served me well as I do not have to look at my keyboard and I use all ten fingers. I have been fascinated by ergonomic keyboards for some time. This started way back when Small Dog got its start at my house in Warren. About a yea...

  • The All New MacBook Pro

    After weeks of anticipation and months of speculation, Apple finally announced updates to the MacBook Pro lineup. Before we get into the details let’s pause for a moment of silence. Apple has officially eliminated the optical disk drive from the entire computer lineup by removing the entry-level MacBook Pro 13in 2.5GHz which hadn’t been updated since 2012. The new MacBook Pros offer some pretty...

  • Enter the 3rd Dimension and Push!

    I got my first experience with 3D Touch or Force Touch as it was known then on my Apple Watch. I noticed that Grace was able to answer calls on her watch like Dick Tracey but for some reason I could not. So, I called Apple support and learned the difference between a tap and a press. Apple took this one step further with when Apple first unveiled 3D Touch in iOS 9 with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus...

  • Working Together

    In a direct challenge to Google Docs, Apple has introduced collaboration to the iWork suite of apps. Pages, Numbers and Keynote now support collaboration through iCloud. You can use iWork collaboration with these devices: A Mac with macOS Sierra and Pages 6.0, Numbers 4.0, or Keynote 7.0 or later An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 10 and Pages 3.0, Numbers 3.0, or Keynote 3.0 or lat...

  • How To Enter Emoji On Your Mac

    I remember the first day I got a new computer, ok a new-to-me computer. It was a hand-me-down PC of sorts. I think it ran some DOS operating system and the screen was always orange. AOL had just come out and I loved nothing more than the sound of my modem and the eventual entry into a chat room where I learned things like :-) was a smiley face and :-P meant I was sticking my tongue out. Fast-fo...

  • iPhone 7 Plus Camera Review

    I was fortunate enough to get my hands on and receive the new iPhone 7 Plus on release day. I skipped the iPhone 6s when it came around so when the 7 was announced I jumped at the chance to upgrade and I haven’t regretted it once. Despite the suggestions from my co-workers I’ve yet to drop my phone into a glass of water…perhaps that review will come in a future issue. For now, I’ll still be playin...

Apple fixed an issue that impacted some of the early adopters downloading the update so it is now safe to upgrade. You will be glad that you did!

  • What's Hot in macOS Sierra

    This coming Tuesday Apple will make the latest macOS available for everyone to download. There’s a lot in Sierra to be excited about and I thought I’d recap a few of the new features as we approach the official release date. As always, make sure you have a current Time Machine backup before hitting that download button next week. Sierra brings new capabilities to Siri. It’s been no secret with m...
