  1. Essential Mac apps for summer breaks

    After seemingly endless lockdowns, many of us will have forgotten how to go on holiday. Many of us have spent the last year glued to screens, in endless Zoom meetings, so it’ll be tempting to leave tech behind for a bit - almost spot on…..but don't leave all of your tech behind.
  2. Must have MacBook and MacBook Pro accessories

    As a professional musician, I’ve spent a huge chunk of my working life on the road touring. I’m in my late 50s, so remember (or sort of remember) the time before mobile phones. A tour managers nightmare. Think herding cats - one tour manager I worked with even used to round us up at airports with a megaphone. Rock n roll.
  3. Getting the most out of your MacBook battery

    Thanks in part to ever increasing processor efficiency, the battery life of Apple's MacBooks improve with each new model release. However, the battery life of your brand new machine will inevitably start to fade over time, and you’ll find yourself with less working time between charges. It’s worth knowing what conditions could shorten (or even damage) the life of your battery, and it certainly pays to maximise your battery runtime with ‘good practice’ OS settings for your your MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.

  4. How to migrate data between Macs

    It’s best to think of replacing your existing Mac as moving house – hopefully not as traumatic, but it’s a half decent analogy! How big is your house, who lives there, what do you use it for and how much stuff do you have (and how much stuff do you want to take with you)? Like your house, your Mac may have accumulated piles of redundant data you can’t even remember, and equally have things in it that you use every day that you just take for granted. So how do you use it?
