Get more of OS X Finder with TotalFinder app

tf-logoI am learning my way on the Apple world, till now the experience is positive, but there are some things that I miss from Windows.

Finder would be the equivalence to Windows Explorer in Windows, and you use it for everything related to file management too. But I was missing some specs that I really found useful in Windows and it was the right click context menu with the Cut, Copy and Paste option. For some reason Apple decided not to include the Cut command on a right click and limits you to use the Command X key combination to Cut some files and then paste them to another location.

Retina MacBook Pro, how to manually switch video cards and save battery

Retina MacBook Pro, how to manually switch video cards and save battery

73486I purchased the latest MacBook Pro retina in November 2013, its the 15″ version which has two video cards on it, an Intel Iris and an Nvidia 750M if I recall correctly.
Its nice to have two video cards because you can do more graphic hungry stuff without having to use another computer, but there are times where you really need as much battery as possible, and you don’t want any application to trigger the power hungry Nvidia 750M. (more…)

My first days with the MacBook Pro Retina (late 2013)

My first days with the MacBook Pro Retina (late 2013)

IMG_7203 (Copy)As you might have read some time ago I decided to switch to Mac, I`ve been a Windows user for 17 years now and I support them, configure and manage them for work. I wanted to have the experience of OS X on Apple hardware first hand and so I purchased a Mac Book Pro Retina 15″ which was announced in October 22nd Apple event and I received last Friday.

My first impressions are great, its an incredible well built machine. Its design is really beautiful and on the inside it seems to be very powerful. I opted for the Quad Core 2.6 Ghz. version with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD drive. I am really happy till now although I didn’t have the opportunity to do much with it. (more…)
