Kiwi vs MailPlane vs Your Browser for Gmail on the Mac

I’m kind of a sucker for Gmail apps. I really like Gmail, but I also like the look and feel of a desktop app. That’s when Kiwi for Gmail (formerly Gmail for Mac) was launched on Kickstarter, I was quick to jump in. I was hoping for something amazing, but I got something good instead. Kiwi […]

SimCity BuildIt Is As Amazing As I Remember

Back in the late 90s early 00s I remember playing SimCity. I spent hours building my cities and watching them get distorted by fire, tornadoes, and aliens. Then yesterday, I downloaded SimCity BuildIt and I’m addicted once again. SimCity BuildIt is available on iOS and Android and it’s pretty much the same game as I remember, […]

From Verizon to T-Mobile – My Review

We’ve been on T-Mobile for a few months now and I have to say that we’re pretty happy. Sure, T-Mobile isn’t the perfect carrier, but then again, all carriers have their flaws. Price The first thing we love is the price. T-Mobile is quite a bit less than Verizon. The amount of money we’re saving […]

Chromebook. A Six Month Review

I’ve had my little Chromebook for about six months now and I have to say that it’s a great little laptop if you just need to browse the web and check email. Really, my feelings haven’t changed much since my first Chromebook review. This laptop would be great for my mom. It works well for email […]

A Rundown of Mac eMail Applications

The Mac has no shortage of email applications, however I haven’t yet found one that can tear me away from Gmail’s web interface. What I’d love is an email client that integrates seamlessly with Gmail and Mac, doesn’t cost too much, and just works. However, that doesn’t exist currently. For now, here is a roundup of […]

Marxico Brings Markdown to Evernote

I’ve been getting more and more into using markdown to take notes do to the simplicity. However, the biggest issue I have is that I haven’t found a good app that’ll keep all my notes together and synced across multiple platforms. I’ve been using Stackedit for a few months now, but that was until I […]

Hello Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite

I couldn’t resist the urge to upgrade to Yosemite, so I did. The download took forever, and the install maybe a half hour, but in the end, it was worth it. My initial impressions are that a lot has changed. The new UI will take a little getting use to. It’s amazing how much it […]

Impressed with Apple TV. I should have got one long ago.

I’ve been looking at digital media players for quite some time now. I love the idea of them, but they all seemed to be missing a feature or two. Eventually my wife made the decision for me and got me an Apple TV. And it’s amazing! The Apple TV is often referred to as a media player […]

Android apps for Chromebooks are one hot mess.

I was excited when they said that Chromebooks were going to get real apps, Android apps, and today they released a few. I quickly downloaded Evernote and it turns out it’s very rough around the edges and not ready for users. The first time I tried to download Evernote, it failed. Second try worked. First launch […]

uBar brings a Windows like Task Bar to Mac and I kinda like it.

Ever wanted the Windows Task Bar on your Mac? Mac people will say no. Switchers will say yes. Either way, uBar brings the Windows Task Bar to Mac. I hate to admit it, but it is kind of awesome. Lets get past the Windows vs Mac thing and talk about productivity. uBar allows me to see what […]
