Mac 101: An introduction to keyboard shortcuts in Safari for Mac

More Mac 101, tips and tricks for novice Mac users.

A long time friend of mine, who is also a long-time Windows user, has recently bought a MacBook Air. Like any transition, it’s not been without its hiccups. But he’s really pleased with with his new purchase. He’s also a first time user of Safari, so I’ve been showing him a few keyboard shortcuts to make browsing the web a lot easier.

There are many helpful keyboard shortcuts to be found in Safari. Some simple ones are opening a new tab by hitting the command key (cmd) and T, so cmd+t. Another one is jumping straight to a bookmark by hitting cmd and a number key correspondingly assigned to your bookmarks (more details here). For instance, If BBC News is your third bookmark, hit cmd+3 to jump straight there.

Black Friday 2013: Roundup Of Best Apple Product Deals

Black Friday deals are upon us as you read this, and it’s the ideal time of the year to get a bargain on your coveted products. While almost everything gets a discount this Friday (and for a few days to come), it’s quite a fact that Apple’s offerings are some of the most sought after ones. Now, the good thing is that the fruit company, in keeping up with the Thanksgiving tradition, puts their products out on discount almost every year, but at the same time, they don’t do it much for newer products (especially the new iPhones). Still, there are deals that you’ll be happy to score, and we’re listing down some of the best ones in town.

For the sake of ease, I am going to break these down by product instead of by retailer.

Drobo Mini rocks storage and speed in a small package

Take the ever-expanding storage capabilities of Drobo BeyondRAID storage, throw in some Thunderbolt, and put it all into a small box and what do you have? Drobo Mini (US$649 MSRP, available for much less online).

To pack a lot of RAID-protected storage in a small space, Drobo chose to use 2.5″ SATA laptop drives as the standard. There are four bays for drives in the Drobo Mini — it comes empty, and you add drives of any capacity to fill ‘em up. You can mix and match capacities, or even drop 2.5″ SATA SSD or hybrid drives into the box for more speed. At this point, those 2.5″ drives only come in capacities up to 1 TB, but as capacities increase in the future you’ll be able to easily hot swap the “old” drives for more storage.
