While many computer makers have been more than eager to adopt Thunderbolt to their computers, Microsoft has remained as one of the few that have not, citing security issues as one of the reasons why.

There are many third-party gaming controllers out there in the market today that will work with iOS devices, but if you’re looking for devices that will ensure compatibility, that’s what the MFi certification is for.

When it comes to laptop design, most of the time, the emphasis is placed on what we can actually see. This means that usually, designers tend to focus on the material used to make the laptop, the thinness, and also how sleek it looks by using more rounded corners.

When sending emails to multiple users at once, it is more common than not that you’ll end up getting pinged by the same email the entire day as users hit “reply all”.
