Low End Mac updated its article on using a Windows keyboard with your Mac to include a change in OS X 10.7 Lion and later - the return of remapping keyboards separately. Thank you to Robert Smith for bringing this to our attention. (Until today, I'd never used a Windows keyboard with a Mac running anything higher than OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.) http://goo.gl/3veofP

My oldest article on #LowEndMac was a company memo I wrote six months before launching Low End Mac, explaining why moving from Mac to Windows 95 didn't make sense. http://goo.gl/ppElU1

Migrated our old article cutting through the 56k modem hype with links that work (mostly in the Internet Archive). If you still use dial-up or want to remember those days, it's a good read. #56kmodemhype http://goo.gl/EmnpQe

Looking back at Low End Mac in 2014. Lowest income since we incorporated in 2001, lowest calendar year site traffic ever, worst month since mid 1998. On the plus side, traffic is growing and donations have kept us going. Thank you for your support! http://goo.gl/rJN0sM

Want to use a PC USB keyboard with OS X 10.0 through 10.3? Free uControl system pref lets you remap Cmd and Opt keys where Apple intended them. #LowEndMac http://goo.gl/rSAZ25

Can the iOS 8.1.1 update free 500 MB on your iDevice that's already running iOS 8.1? Maybe... ‪#‎LowEndMac‬ http://goo.gl/dVGM2a
