How much space do you need on your Time Machine Drive…?

On of the most facinating, useful and equally powerful feature of Leopard, is Time Machine. I’ve been using Mac for over 3 months now and Time Machine for about 2 months. With this background, let me explain my usage rates. I had a lot of data in my PC. Close to 200 GB of data, which I migrated to my mac when I bought it. Took me about 2 days (or more?), and after a month or so, I purchased a new 1TB Western Digital hard drive for 179...

Usability and Visual Studio 2005

Usability and Visual Studio 2005

People always hate when things don’t work as they expect. This doesn’t have to apply for software products. You bang your TV, when it suddenly turns black and white. You shake your remote when it doesn’t work even though you know that the battery is dead. Usability is a great area.

Mac Vs PC – Part II

Mac Vs PC – Part II

A month ago, I blogged about my first experience with my mac. As a sequel to it, in this post, I’ll blog about features that I think I miss as I migrate to Windows and things I miss if I migrate back to Windows… First thing I missed was… It’s close to a month with my mac and I’ve not restarted it.

Voice of a Mac Switcher…

Voice of a Mac Switcher…

Whoa,What a huge headache I had with Windows Vista… If anyone could remember, I blogged about my experience with my Dell Inspiron/Windows Vista a year ago. As you might see, my first experience was not very satisfactory. My review was more of a rant about Vista.
