There are few feelings in our tech-driven worlds as good as discovering something new. Am I right?
A new series to indulge in, a new Youtube channel to waste away the hours, and of course, new music to make the [insert verb here] to work and back bearable.
But how do you discover new, GOOD, music, legally, and for free? Well that’s the tricky part.
Yes you can troll Youtube, or subscribe to your heart’s content on Soundcloud. But at the end of the day, that’s a lot of energy used for music that, well, might not actually be that great.
So sit back, relax, and let Clark Dinnison, Creator of the Noon Pacific App, do the all the hard work, and send you a mixtape every week of the hottest and best tracks from music blogs around the world. Continue reading
Zshoosh up your Mac with a simple screensaver that emulates the iOS 7 lock screen.
This was originally built by BodySoulSpirit and is now working in collaboration with Little Endian Game Studios.
The screensaver is really gorgeous to look at, and will definitely earn a double-take from the lookey-loos of your Mac tomorrow…
Download the .screensaver file and open to install it.
Even I am a bit skeptical about that title…How can you make lights fun?
Also, again? Was it ever fun?
Chinese company Yeelight has managed to create an LED light bulb.
Good for them right?
Nope, good for you!
The LED light is 100% controllable from your iPhone through Low-energy Bluetooth and an app.
Why exactly would you want to control your light/s with your smartphone? Let’s take a look shall we…
After physically installing the light bulb, which is like installing any other light bulb by the way, go ahead a download the app from the app store.
When it comes to choosing software to keep your Mac clean, tidy, and performing well, one really has to be careful with what you choose.
If the product is not over-priced or does nothing for you, it’s probably riddled with malware or even worse…
But Mac Myriad takes this very seriously, and so without any hint of a doubt, can happily recommend, Clean My Mac.
Mac Paw has been building some pretty amazing software for quite some time now, but their flag-ship app without a doubt, has to be, Clean My Mac. So much so, that it’s just undergone a huge face-lift with the release of version 3.
When we learned about the Personal Hotspot feature in iOS so many years ago, we were over the moon to have it.
But having the kind of feature that lets you share your mobile data with pretty much any other device you want, does come with some drawbacks.
And the biggest drawback? Your mobile data gets used, and very much abused by your sharing device/s as an unlimited data connection.
How many times have I rejoiced, having the quick and easy solution of getting data on my Mac by connecting to my iPhone? Countless!
How many times have I sworn at my Mac in the same instance, since the machine drained my mobile data thanks to a quick and dirty App Store update, DropBox sync, delayed iTunes download from late-night gaming the night before? See above for answer!
Mac Myriad is extremely proud to be able to bring one of our very first speakers of the original Mac Tech SA group, Daniëlle Nel, who will be wow’ing our guests next week with amazing tips, techniques and tricks on wrangling the latest in Final Cut Pro X.
