I typically start every work day by creating a list of the things I need to accomplish that day. Once something I did in the Notes app, I eventually moved to just using a page in a notebook. As new things pop up I add to that list, ultimately ending in a jumbled mess of a list with things crossed off and others written in the margins and inevitably that one thing that accidentally slips through the cracks.
Mac: Recently we told you how to clear off your cluttered Mac desktop. But if you just want your Mac to stop saving your screenshots to your desktop, commenter Jägs has a solution. Just enter a couple of commands into your Mac's Terminal app, and your computer will create those images in a different folder.
After recently fixing the "chaiOS" bug, Apple now has to contend with a nasty bug that will crash any Mac or iOS device that receives a single Indian-language character specific to the Telugu language. The bug doesn't affect every app - many third party apps are unaffected - but it's a major pain in the butt.
Mac: Apple used to boast that its Mac computers were a virus-free utopia, but that was before hackers and criminals decided to focus their efforts on the operating system. Now, your Mac is just as vulnerable to viruses as any Windows PC, and a new report reveals that hackers can get access to your computer through an entryway that you might think would be better protected: The Mac App Store.
Mac: Software updates are usually a good thing. They can bring new features and important security updates to whatever device you're using with little to no effort on your part.

Mac: When it comes to email clients, there are a ton of options out there. For the past week, I've been using Boxy. Originally launched in late 2015, the company put out version two this time last week, which adds a lot of new features to the original product while maintaining the stuff people loved about the company's initial offering.
Mac: Whenever I'm out and about with my laptop, usually at a cafe or co-working space, I'll notice some peculiar connectivity issues. My Mac will often connect to an ISP-provided connection rather than the hotspot on my phone or the Wi-Fi in the building, as though it had a preference for one over the other.
Mac: If you're an avid Mac productivity app user, you know the cost of buying software can get a little out of control. Setapp, which was previously in beta, is a $US10 ($13)/month subscription service that gets you access to 61 different Mac apps.
Windows/Mac: The high-flying Aerial screensaver is one of my favourite things about the 4th generation Apple TV. It looks so cool I often find myself watching it instead of catching up on my Netflix shows. Here's how to get it on your Mac or PC.
