Replace your DVD with an HDD Macbook Pro

Hi remoters,

After 2 months of waiting, my HDD support cammed all the way from China, so i will explain you the steps and what I did with my macbook pro.

1. DVD = i don´t use it too much

2. SSD (solid state disk) = i just bought it and it´s just 128 GB and quite expensive

3. ND (normal disk) = it´s 500 GB and i had to change it with the 128 GB SSD because it´s faster.

4. SSD + ND = 2 disk in one laptop….quite cool no?

Here you have some pictures with the steps that I followed.

See hidden files MAC

Hi Remoters, Application Method The application method is probably the simplest. With a simple application such as Houdini, you can at the click of a button hide or show files or folders. As well as this it also enables you to quickly hide folders on your hard drive so they are hidden from view. This works very well if you want to hide your “important files” from people, and don’t want to use the password protect folder method. Preference Pane Method Another simple method of hiding files is using a special preference pane called Secrets. I posted about earlier. It enables you to show and hide folders using one of the many options, within the program. It also has a whole lot more, to enable you to access the deepest parts of your operating system. Terminal Method Probably the hardest to do but uses the least amount of work and has the most potential to go wrong, that is the Terminal Method. If you open up terminal (Applications > Utilities) and type the following: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder This will show you all of the hidden files and folders on your operating system. If you want to reverse the command replace TRUE with FALSE. Personally my favourite method is to use the secrets pane, I find it is the quickest method of them all. To conclude if you want to use these commands I suggest you don’t change anything. Like my parents said, look with your eyes and not with your hands. I seriously don’t recommend you change anything at all, other wise there would be dire consequences for you system. If you want to learn more about these sort of tricks I recommend, Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual or Mac OS X Unix Toolbox. Both develop this skills further and have lots of other types of tricks like this. Thanks for following, Contact us: Support@itremotesolutions.com

10 best RSS Readers in the Mac App Store

Hi Remoters,

¿Do you like to read the newspaper? I am sure you do that´s why today I will give you some details about the best RSS Readers in the App Store.

 

1. Caffeinated

Caffeinated is a well designed and elegant reader which has attracted very good reviews in the App Store. The layout shows each news feed organised into categories with the news displayed in the main window. Bookmarks can be created for your favourite articles, and it’s possible to share items with various social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Like many such applications, a Readability mode lets you view the full article in a stripped-down layout without ads.

More details: App Store Link

2. Fresh Feed

Fresh Feed focuses on simplicity. The application sits in the Mac’s menu bar and is updated in real time. Just click the icon to view a list of news, and on individual news stories to view in Safari. The Pro version can synchronise with Google Reader and also read out the news titles. Watch out Siri!

More details: App Store link

3. Mixtab

Mixtab is an eye-catching RSS news reader that organises topics in a rather stylish way. The app uses “tabs” which in this context are simply top-level menus menus that show feed collections. You can create new tabs and organise them however you desire, as well as customise the content within and choose an overall theme from a selection of built-in templates.

Mixtab also works in Lion’s full screen mode, and is probably one of the most pleasant ways to read the news. It requires you to create an account with Mixtab, but it takes just seconds to set one up.

More details: App Store Link


4. MobileRSS

MobileRSS has been available for the iPhone and iPad since July 2011, and the Mac version has almost identical functionality. The app is simply a Google Reader client so you need to have a Google account to use it, but it synchronises perfectly and has lots of sharing options such as posting to Twitter and Instapaper. There are multiple view layouts and you can even download full articles for specified feeds to read later.

More details: App Store Link

5. NewsBar

NewsBar is a little unusual amongst the Mac RSS readers, because it shows the news in a semi-transparent sidebar on your desktop screen which is updated in real-time. There are dozens of useful features such as single-click to pop-up and read, or double-click to open the full story in the browser, as well as optional synchronisation with a Google Reader account, plus favourites, a customisable interface and much more.

More details: App Store Link

6. NewsFire

NewsFire is quite old now and hasn’t been updated for some time, but it has a very functionality and uncluttered interface that contains just the most essential features. You can’t synchronise with Google Reader unfortunately, but as a very basic RSS  reader which does exactly what it says, it’s a pretty decent application.

More details: App Store link

7. NewsRack

NewsRack uses a tabbed interface and thumbnail previews of each story (something that many readers don’t have) and just like most RSS apps, NewsRack can synchronise with your Google Reader account (but this is purely optional). It’s not the cheapest RSS reader but it has most of the key features covered. Interestingly, it can also be extended with AppleScript, so anyone that likes to tinker in such things might espeically enjoy NewsRack.

More details: App Store Link

8. Reeder

Reeder has the honour of being many people’s favourite RSS reader and is consistently popular on the iPad, iPhone and Mac. It requires a Google Reader account to work but that’s easy enough to set up. Feeds are displayed in a list and organised in topics of your choosing such as Technology, Sport and so on, and it has all the usual options to mark feeds (or individual stories) as read, or to “star” them as favourites.

There’s plenty of sharing options in Reeder and Readability is also supported. Select an article headline and you’re taken to the original story inside the app itself, or you can view the original in Safari. A great little news reader indeed, and one that’s become deservedly popular.

More details: App Store Link

9. RSS Menu

RSS Menu it’s quite unique because it doesn’t have its own application window, but as the name suggests it uses a systemwide drop-down menu instead. This means it’s easily accessible from any screen on your Mac – even in full-screen mode. Whilst some people might prefer a more traditional windowed approach, RSS menu does its job well as a handy news reading application.

10. RSS Ticker For Google Reader

RSS Ticker For Google Reader not only presents RSS news feeds and syncs with a Google Reader account, but it has a rather nice ticker that constantly scrolls feeds across the title bar in the chosen space, much like a rolling news channel. There’s also a more traditional list view layout to view each story in more detail. The usual options are present, such as being able to star favourites and showing the number of unread items in the application’s Dock icon.

I use Pulp the app but I strongly recommend each one of this apps.
