Evernote For iOS, macOS Gains Dark Mode Support

Dark mode is a useful feature in apps because it helps reduce the overall glare that you get from an otherwise mostly-white interface.

Dark mode is something that we’re starting to see more these days as options within apps and services.

Apple Takes Down Some Of Trend Micro’s Apps For Mac

When you install a security app on your computer, chances are you are trusting that it will keep your information safe from malware, hacks, and busybodies.

Apple Wants To Teach You Photo Editing Over The Phone

Learning to use technical software can be an intimidating experience, which is why when companies offer users the chance to go for some free lessons, it’s not a bad idea to take them up on their offer.

Back in 2007 with the launch of Mac OS X Leopard, Apple introduced a “Back to My Mac” feature which basically allowed users to access files stored on one computer from another, which in a way acted like a roundabout way of cloud storage.

When you click on a button, a link, or an item on your computer, chances are you are doing it with your mouse.

It is generally thought that a computer fresh from the factory is pretty much as secure as it gets, before software is installed and it is connected to the internet.
