OWC USB-C Dock
If you have a USB-C equipped computer, then you really need to check this out!
I've been a notebook junkie since the early 1990's when Windows 3.1 and Windows 3.11 for Workgroups was all the rage. Back then, I started out with an 8088 and did my best to make the hardware stretch as far as it could. I did more with underpowered, but more affordable hardware, than most people considered prudent... but it was what I could afford, and it was what I had to do to get the job done. My desire was not just to do more with less, but to be able to do everything that a desktop PC could do, but I wanted to do it with a unit that I could also take out and about with me.

Apple’s Mid 2017 15″ MacBook Pro
Its new. Its controversial; but is it up to the task..?
Introduction
I’ve been a Mac since Apple dropped the PowerPC chip and embraced Intel. I have said many times that I bought my first Mac to be a Windows machine, largely because the hardware itself was so powerful and so elegant. To be honest, it took a while for me to be won over by OS X and macOS. However now, it is my OS of choice; and the Mac… well the Mac is still my go to computer eleven years later.

Should I Upgrade or Not..? – Part 1
Based on the information at hand, here's my take on Apple's announcements from 2017-09-12...
Apple announced three new iPhones (six, if you count the different sizes), two new Apple Watches (one with cellular and one without) and two new Apple TV's the other day (again, if you count the different storage sizes). There's a TON of debate going on regarding the new devices; and like EVERY OTHER YEAR that Apple announces new iDevices, the same argument starts: is the upgrade worth the cost?
Like EVERY OTHER YEAR, the answer is likely going to be the same – it depends on where you're upgrading from.

Substantiated Rumors for iPhone Tuesday
The following iPhone rumors were confirmed by a leaked, final version of iOS 11...
I'm not one for Apple based rumors. Especially since many of them wind up being nothing but hot air. The only ones that end up having any substance to them are ones like those I'm going to relate to you, below. They come from a credible, internal source – Apple itself. And while its possible for Apple to change their minds and change the names and such before Tuesday 9/12... at this point it's likely too late.

Immediately Speed Up Windows 10
Make an instant impact on your Windows 10 PC's performance with this must do tweak
If there's one thing that I know, and know pretty well, it's that Windows machines nearly always operate below their potential. Windows has a tendency to be a bit of a memory pig. One has only to look at Windows Vista and the performance hit that its version Aero brought to the OS to realize this is the case, and that in the last 10 years SINCE Windows Vista, things haven't changed too much. Unfortunately, Windows performance hits have just changed their area of impact and haven't been completely eliminated.
Thankfully, this doesn't have to be the end of it. You can have a well performing Windows machine without spending an arm and a leg; and that's important. To be honest, just because you spend a lot of money on a Windows computer – like on a Surface Book, Surface Laptop or Surface Book – doesn't mean that you're going to get a lightning fast machine. Depending on the hardware's specs – and the way you have it configured – even the expensive ones can suffer from poor performance. If your PC is also maxed out as far as the amount RAM is can support, this is even a bigger problem, because, while more RAM can always make things better, your PC has all that it can handle.

Unboxing the Mid-2017 15″ MacBook Pro
This is the unboxing for Apple’s Mid-2017 15″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. The new unit its VERY thin and VERY light; and VERY lacking in available expansion ports. At least it has four (4) USB-C ports on it instead of just the one that you get on the 12″ MacBook.
The biggest story here, I mean, aside from the lack of expansion ports and of course the new Touch Bar in place of the standard row of function keys is the new device’s size and weight. As part of the overall review, I’ll be comparing the new MacBook Pro to two different models – the Late 2013 and the Mid-2009.

Microzon Introduces Digital Assistant Corlexa
Or is that Amasoft introduces digital assistant Altana..? I'm confused, man...
In a very surprising move, Microsoft and Amazon have agreed to a partnership where their digital assistants, Cortana and Alexa respective, will begin sharing information by the end of this calendar year, 2018. This will enable each digital assistant to leverage the unique abilities of the other in an unprecedented collaboration and data sharing initiative between the two Seattle, Washing based computing giants.

How to Fix Windows 10 Memory Leaks
Windows 10 can sometimes use more RAM than it actually needs. Here's how to resolve that issue...
Introduction
Ove the years, I've noticed that the more you do with your computer, the more RAM you need. Now, that statement likely isn't surprising for anyone. I mean, it makes perfect sense. If you wanna do more, you're gonna need more – RAM, processing power, hard drive space – you're gonna need more. It's really just that simple.

Top Privacy Settings for Windows 10
In light of all the new malware out there, you should check and update your Windows 10 privacy settings...
Introduction
If there's one thing that really gets my dander up, its malware. Saying that it drives me a bit nuts is an understatement. I work too hard to keep my PC running as fast and efficiently as it can. I don't need some random jerk ruining my work simply because they want to make a quick buck.
All that being said, Windows is one of the biggest malware traps in the world. It runs on nearly every enterprise PC ever deployed, and runs the majority of consumer PCs as well. There are some things that you can do to protect yourself, though; and quite honestly, you should do them. I've run into malware before, and its not fun. If you want to protect yourself, follow the advice I've given in those two linked articles. You can further protect yourself by adjusting some privacy settings in Windows 10.
