Social networks are great time wasters and they usually don't do much good to your professional career. Except for LinkedIn which offers a great way to build up your CV with recommendations and helps finding valuable contacts.

Apple Remote puts your Mac to sleep

Isn't it annoying that you have to get out of bed to put your Mac to sleep after watching a long movie?

Well, if you have the remote at hand you can simply press and hold the play button to put your Mac to sleep.

Unfortunately you can't wake your Mac the same way.

Doodle your Logo like Google!

‘Google Doodle’ is the buzz word these days. Whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day or any other important date, Google doesn’t miss out doodling for them. For readers who don’t know what Google Doodle is all about, here is a little piece of information on what it is, how Google started it, what kind of response are they getting from the people all across the world and how you, as a business owner can embellish your logo on different occasions?

We all know the literal meaning of the word ‘Doodle’, which means aimless drawing. Google, the most successful internet giant started doodling in the year 1999. Their first doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin on ‘Burning Man Festival’, which bagged a lot of popularity. So later on, in 2000, they assigned an intern, Dennis Hwang in their own company to take charge of this department named ‘Google Doodle’. His first doodle was created in 2000 for ‘Bastille Day’ and he’s been designing doodles for Google ever since.
