Simple Passcode or Complex Passcode

Your iPhone’s sleek operating system, iOS, makes the incredible computing power hidden in the device easy and intuitive to use, but any system can be vulnerable to external attacks, so Apple introduced a sequence of characters that the user must type each time he or she unlocks the iPhone from the lock screen. This sequence is called passcode which prevents any unauthorized access to the device. To protect their iPhones users can choose between a simple passcode or complex passcode. (more…)

Airbar Touchdown

We have already posted about the iPad as a second display for a MacBook. The contraption is interesting and reliable but cumbersome and requires an iPad in addition to the MacBook. Besides, working with two displays is a skill to learn and you risk to developing a divergent squint in the process. But tethering a tablet is not the only option. Really, I do not know why Apple is so touchy about touch screens, but their reluctance leaves the door open for other innovating companies. (more…)

Duet Display

Additional display for a laptop is not a must-have for most of the time, but now and then, additional screen space will do for multitasking. Like editing videos and checking e-mails at the same time, or displaying some service technical info when overclocking or coding. If you got a standalone display, no problem: you just plug it in and go ahead. But if your only other option is a tablet, it is a tricky thing to do. The most popular interface for tethering both devices is Wi-Fi. But the wireless connection is unstable at the very least and the interchange between windows on the two screens is slow. The wired connection is much more reliable and developing the relevant iOS app was just a question of time. And a team of ex-Apple engineers now offers Duet Display, a nice app to tether your iPad to a MacBook Pro. (more…)

Apple File System: Everything You Need to Know

First things first, so let’s talk about what the Apple File System (APFS) is and what it means for computers performance. We all know that our files are saved to the storage device, a hard disk drive or a solid state drive or flash drive, whatever. But the computer ‘sees’ it not the way we do. First it divides any file in little pieces and then stacks it on ‘shelves’ or sectors of the drive. The file system determines how large these sectors can be. Going on with the shelves metaphor, imagine bookcases too shallow or narrow to house large thick volumes, but fit for booklets. (more…)
