Question from Winforums

Question: There are many third party products to clean and enhance Windows performance.  I’m a new user to Mac, what is available to achieve these results on a Mac?

Answer:  The answer is you don’t need any.  There are third party tools available, but you don’t need to run them.  Mac’s don’t fragment nor have a registry which might require cleaning.  I would recommend however, and application removal tool like App Cleaner instead of draging the application to the trash.  This will ensure removal all associated files.  Otherwise, just let your Mac run its course.

Education and Technology

Digital Textbook Initiative in CA: Financial Impact, Learning Impact, Closes the Digital Divide gap, etc.

Digital Divide: Defined as those that have or do not have access to technology. When one uses technology, the quality and quantity of usage greatly matters. Government and business should address this cooperatively. This trend is noticeable in our own communities. Thoughts on what we (you, me, community, schools, govt, business) can do the decrease the gap that exists. Should this be of any great concern to us?
