Mac Vs PC Users [Infographic]

Are you a Mac or PC user? How true is that for you? After reading I feel that most of them are pretty true. I’m a hybrid to be honest. For 9 hours on weekdays I will be using Window Laptop, but 5 hours on weekdays and 12 hours on weekends I will be on my Macbook Pro.

But of course, I’m measuring myself as a Mac user, because I will most definitely hope to use my Mac for work if I could. Some of them are pretty true for me.  Let us know how true is this infographic is to you!


Multiple users account on your iPad with this hack [Video]

iPad is not a laptop/desktop replacement, but alot of iPad users are really using their main machine lesser and lesser. Of course it is due to the snappy iPad, fun Apps and it is just so simple.

Family iPad? How to manage?

I recently bought my mom an iPad 2, and she is loving it. Not only loving it, but she is already a gamer! So one of the issues in iPad is that although it is kind of a family iPad, thus everyone is sharing it. But it doesn’t not have any account to differentiate the users.

iUsers – Ability to add users to iPad!

For example, I like to read on flipboard, iBooks, tweet and check my emails. But my mom do light gaming, Facebook and watch video. So one of the problem is I can’t customize the home screen according to my liking.  Not anymore. Pedro just release a new cydia hack for jailbroken iPad users – iUsers. You can now have users account on your iPad just like any Mac or PC.

Pretty cool yeah? Do check out the demo video below and let me know what you think about it?

New iMacs are pretty fast! Macworld have done a benchmark on the new iMac 2011 it is faster than all previous iMacs and are almost as fast as Mac Pro 2010. It is just a wonder that you can have such a powerful machine and a 27 inch screen pack together in such a neat package!
