My early 2008 Mac Pro was really showing its age, frequently slowing down and frustrating me in my consulting and web design business. But I was able boost its performance and extend its useful life with a modesty priced hardware addition: installing a SSD (solid state drive) to hold the OS X and Applications directories. Here’s how I did it.
My review of the Epson WorkForce 845 All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer which replaced my aging Kodak ESP 7 All-in-One Printer.

Which pocket digital camera is the best? That’s easy: the one you have with you. My personal choice is an iPhone 4S because I always carry it with me. And if I want to ensure a steady shot, I use a tripod and remote shutter release. This is how I set it up.
My check-in at the Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston brought unwelcome news. Because of Hurricane Irene two weeks before, the hotel needed work on their electrical system the next day — with the power off in the hotel from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on a Saturday! The hotel made no attempt to contact me before I showed up. They made it worse by fumbling the customer service follow up.
