How To Scroll Horizontally (Left and Right) in Mac OS

H

This is something new to me, and something that I know doesn’t work in Windows XP. I was programming on my Macbook, when all the long, horizontal lines of code started bugging me. I had to click on the horizontal scrollbar and move the focus left and right, and I thought to myself, “Isn’t there a better way to do this? Let’s just see how smart the Apple developers are...

How To Restart The Dock In Mac OS When It Crashes

H

Just the other day I was running a whole load of applications on my Macbook Pro, and I saw my memory usage and CPU usage spike up (it was due to a couple of Adobe AIR applications – Mac OS tends to be bad at running Flash and AIR). And right about then, I had leave, so I had to put my Macbook to sleep. Later, when I tried to wake up my Macbook, I found that my dock had disappeared and I...

B

I wanted dual monitors with my Macbook Pro, but it isn’t possible without buying a graphics splitter like the Matrox DualHead2Go or Matrox TripleHead2Go. Problem is, there’s a problem with the new unibody Macbook Pros with these splitters – apparently the video output doesn’t work that well. I think it’s still possible though, but I didn’t want to risk it. So I...

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

B

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...
