Some cars you marry. Others you just take for a fling. Members of the latter category may try to fool you into thinking they belong in the former. Comfort and safety features may abound, from heated leather seats to a heated leather flat-bottomed steering wheel to blind spot alerts to parking assist and beyond. Take a good […]

If your Mac is running slow, a good place to start troubleshooting is in Activity Monitor, a utility built in to every Mac.
I usually interact with vehicles I drive by touching some surface inside said vehicle. Yet when I twirled my finger in the air or waved my hand, the BMW 750i xDrive knew exactly what to do. The Bavarian Motor Works has a reputation for jamming all sorts of technology into its vehicles, and the 7-series is where new ideas first […]
My apologies to people who don’t want to read a fanboy account of Apple. This isn’t that. This is a narration of the facts, and just the facts. I keep track of issues that crop up with my out-of-warranty Apple products. My MacBook Pro is 6.5 years old. My iPod Touch is 3.5 years old. […]
Few vehicles stand out as international icons in their class. I enjoyed a week with one such icon, the 2016 Range Rover Diesel, HSE. First impressions This tall, wide vehicle looks ready for business with its tall stance, nearly upright windshield and elevated ground clearance.

Disclaimer: The 2016 Fiat 500x Sport I test drove came with the little blue pill pre swallowed, it seems, and I didn’t get the attention the lucky […]
Why is your computer so slow? That might be the wrong question to ask. Sometimes it isn’t your computing device (computer, tablet, etc) that’s at fault. Our computing environments grow ever more dependent on fast Internet connections. This is especially true if much of what you do occurs online and not on your own computer. Many people clued […]
Few automakers seem to earn loyalty for a range of vehicles. But there’s one that gains customers for just about every product in its lineup: the sedan, the compact, the sports coupe, the crossovers. For a week, I drove the bad boy of the bunch: Subaru’s 2017 WRX. It’s the one Subaru whose appeal (and whose audience) […]
