How To Fix The Problem Of Icons Disappearing in Your Mac’s Dock

Sometimes certain icons in your Mac dock will just disappear. For example, the Firefox icon might disappear and you’ll see a blank space with just the Firefox name instead of the icon. I’m not sure why this occurs, but it’s some form of corruption to the dock settings file, so you’ll need to reset it. To do so, just do this: Use Spotlight and look for terminal. Launch it, and run the following commands. rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist killall Dock There you

How To Rotate Images or Pictures On Mac OSX

I was trying to rotate images on the Mac, and was getting annoyed at the apparent lack of functionality to do so. In Windows, you could rotate images in Explorer and in Windows Preview after you’ve opened up the file. On Mac OSX, the Preview app doesn’t come with the “rotate” buttons visible by default. What you need to do is to right-click on the Preview menubar (like in the screenshot), and select “Customise Toolbar”. There, you’ll find the elusive

It also comes with 3G capabilities, a microphone, headphone jack, and speakerphone? I bet it won’t be long before someone figures out how to use Skype or some other VOIP service with that. On the other hand, one thing I can be sure of is that Amazon’s Kindle and the other ebook readers are

RadTech Bluetooth Mouse BT600 Review – The Best Bluetooth Mouse For Mac?

My new RadTech BT600 Bluetooth Mouse came today! It’s a full-sized, 5-button Bluetooth laser mouse, with a standard form factor. It looks pretty good, with a professional-looking box, and has a nice design and finishing. The reason why I was looking for another mouse was that I was using a Apple Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, but it was frustrating me more than anything. For one, the Mighty Mouse is a gunk and dirt magnet. Everywhere you lay your fingers on it

Best Macbook Sleeve Review – What’s The Top Sleeve for Macbooks?

Here was the situation: I had a new 13″ MacBook Pro (the unibody ones) and no case to carry it around with because the MacBook sleeve that I ordered hadn’t arrived yet. I did not want to place it in my bag naked, because there were keys, pens and who knows what else that would scratch it. I also didn’t want to buy a MacBook case from the Apple store because I knew I could get a better variety and
