What is new about the MacBook Air? It is not just cosmetic improvements but newer applications. Here is a list of apps that you will LOVE to get for your MacBook Air.
It’s like this, you see, Hulu can see where you’re accessing their site from by your IP address. That is the address of your computer and whenever you access a site they know where you are. They might not look because they’re usually not interested, but in the case of Hulu, they are interested and they can block all IP address that are not in The USA. So if you try to watch Hulu outside The USA you get that little pop up message saying that they’re really sorry.
If you’re looking for a vpn for your Mac I suggest 12vpn. I’m using their lite service which has certain limitations but I think its great. First and foremost it’s the cheapest. It’s only about 20 kuai a month (conversion rate as of 2010). 12vpn is great for Mac users in China – their office hours are based on HK time so I assume their based in HK. Anyway, it’s good to have a vpn services that is just for those of us located inside the great firewall.
Auto update – Apple has always been known for its ability to fight off malicious malware and now it is able to update silently and automatically. This is an important function since in the past coders were able to trick users with update notifications and having them download malicious malware.
So in order to prevent that from happening, innovative developers have come up with a solution known as vpn (Virtual Private Servers). A ipvanish is meant to protect your system, as well as your network from being compromised. In other words, you don’t want anyone to have unauthorized access to your system or network. That will help keep your data safe as you work.
Finally, remember to still continue to back up your data yourself. Even though you may have the data stored on your local computer and the cloud drive, it is always good to make regular backups of all of your data to an external hard disk. If the cloud storage provider every goes out of business, loses a server, or just simply accidently deletes your data, you could lose it all.
In conclusion, I have realized that there is nothing that is truly free in this world. If a site says they are totally free, I haven’t found it. But I have found a couple that got pretty close.
