How To Rebuild Spotlight Index in OS X To Solve Mac’s Storage Hogging Issue

Dark Mode

Spotlight Search is one of the best things about OS X and with Yosemite it got even better. It can do calculations, conversions and even look up movie information for you.

The Notification Center’s Today view is the new Dashboard. It started with iOS 7 and made its way over to Yosemite. We’ve told you what widgets in iOS 8 are and how they work. It’s the same story on Yosemite. Dashboard widgets on OS X used to be (and for some, still are) a way […]

When buying an Android device, if we are getting an external SD card mount facility to hold 32 or more gigs of data, we don’t even look at the internal storage. Well why would you? You can save all your music and videos onto your external SD card and save the internal SD card space […]

Safari

Chrome is the best desktop browser out there, there’s no denying that. The amount of features, extensions, and now Chrome apps certainly make it a must-have.

How to Get the New Gmail 5.0 Material Design on Android Kitkat

Gmail 5.0

One of the things I love about iOS is its updates. Unlike Android, when Apple has one, it’s across all of its most recent devices. For the not so lucky Android users, it can be months of wait. Most of the time, they have to just live with the older versions. But what’s good is, […]
