There are about a million different photography apps out there, right? Maybe 2 million? Now most of them are primarily for the iPhone and everybody seems to have their favorite and iSensei is no different – except his choice is better and it’s called SNAPSEED. It’s a sweet piece of work that puts most of the photo apps to shame, in our most humble opinion. One of the nicest things about it is that it has an iPhone app, iPad app and a Macintosh program so you can really get a feel for using it frequently in different environments. What makes it so great, you ask? Good question, little ones! Read the rest of this entry
Does your battery feel sluggish and rundown? Just can’t seem to hold a charge anymore? Well, why not try Calibrating?!
If your battery is showing signs of shorter run times, you may want to calibrate the battery (ideally once every 1-3 months).
To calibrate the battery, follow these instructions:
- Fully charge your MacBook.
- Once fully charged, leave it plugged in for at least another 2 hours.
- Remove the MagSafe power adapter, and use your computer until you get the battery level warning message.
- Ignore that message and keep running your notebook.
- Eventually the machine will go to sleep.
- Do NOT plug it in. Instead, let it sleep for at least 5 hours.
- After the time has passed, plug it back in, and let it fully charge.
- Once fully charged, your battery has been properly calibrated.

DAY ONE Journal
This is an excellent journal/diary-type app. I find myself using it almost daily and I’ve never been able to keep up doing that, analog-style (e.g. paper). This is super clean and attractive, which makes entries easy to do. Password protected (yes!), it has all versions: desktop, iPhone/iPad, and they can all sync via DROPBOX (you DO have Dropbox, right?! For more info, click here). Lots of functionality, but all to the point of journaling. No extraneous features or noise to get in the way.
