If you have anything other than a BIOS key that activates Windows 10 on one of your computers, you will want to read this. This includes Pro upgrades and/or upgrades from previous retail versions of Windows.
Apple, for some reason, stops Boot Camp support early for Intel-based Macintosh computers. I frankly don’t understand it. It’s so easy to support newer Windows versions, as the burden (much like Linux) gets absorbed into the kernel.
Windows 8 is the first Windows with free antivirus. But, what if you want to augment its free antivirus, with more free antivirus? Here’s your game plan.

Long story short, rather than doing something productive, I’m undoing a mess created by the near-final beta of Trend Micro for Windows 7. I was installing the betas in a random pattern across the machines, to find out which one would give me the most headache. And, we have a winner! Long story short, some […]
A few people have emailed me asking for the driver to fix Windows 7 sound on newer-model MacBooks (2008 and onward). Luckily, I already found it and have posted it over on CentralGadget.com… jump over there at the link below. MacBook Having Windows 7 Audio Trouble? We’ve got your driver fix… – CentralGadget.com
