I’ve been on the lookout for a Google Hangouts desktop app for the Mac and there are actually few decent choices out there. First off, I don’t want to run a Chrome extension and I don’t want to have to keep Gmail open in the background. That works for some, but it’s either out of sight, […]
I have to say that the WordPress Mac app is pretty nice, but it’s also the same as going to WordPress.com and logging in. Seems like it’s mainly a fancy stand alone browser. It’s got a nice clean interface, works quickly, and does a great job at reducing clutter. The only big issue I see at […]
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.

I can find all the Mac OS install disks except the one I want.
I was all excited to install Mavericks, but sadly, it didn’t go well. Mavericks would kernel panic after a few minutes and then it’d restart the machine. The only way I could get the machine to work was to boot into safe mode. While in Safe Mode, I was able to use the machine and look […]
Ever get a Visio document and wonder what’s inside it? There are a few paid programs on the Mac that view Visio documents, but they are a bit spendy when you just want to see the file. Instead, grab LibreOffice. Checkout LibreOffice LibreOffice is a full office suite and it has the ability to read Visio files. It may not be prefect, […]
