System Monitoring your PowerPC

It’s important to check on how your computer is doing during the day.  This might sound strange, but to make sure you are not abusing the limits of your Mac we selected some online software that you can use to better understand how your memory, processor, network, battery, etc are being used.  With these programs, you are able to open or close more apps without worrying about having to force quit.

This will be the last post of 2012.  Happy New Year and see you in 2013.  🙂

Organized (widget) for Mac PowerPC

Some people don’t use their dashboard very often and disable it because it uses some memory ram to run all those widgets, but sometimes there are nice widgets that could help your day by day browsing, getting news or just using the computer regularly.  In fact, Apple was really smart to set up a location (like a desktop) for all your favorite widgets.  To take it a step further, there is a great widget I came across entitled Organized.  It’s a simple and fast way to check your calendar, events, world clocks, notes etc. All in a single widget.  If you like the idea, you should just visit the developer’s web site to gather more information.  It’s free to use and installation (and uninstallation) of this widget is VERY easy.
