Apple Watch and the costs of custom faces
Unlike products from other vendors, Apple Watch won't allow for custom watch faces, at least not at launch.
This has led to the typical angst seen before any major Apple product launch, where the culture of the company and the limits of resources clash with the expectations and imaginations of customers everywhere. Whereby everywhere, I mean the internet.

The Health app for iPhone lets you customize what kind of stats and data you want to see at a quick glance.
You can collect all kinds of data inside the Health app but if some of it is more important to you than the rest, you'll want to make sure that's what you see on your Dashboard, which functions as the main view in Health.

How to get gigabytes back from Steam
Have you used Valve's popular Steam service to install and play games on your Mac?
If so, you may be wasting a lot of hard drive space. Steam makes it easy to download and play great Mac games. Steam hides your downloaded games, though, which makes it easy to waste dozens or hundreds of GB of hard drive space. Here's how to reclaim it.
I just ran DaisyDisk on my Mac and discovered that I have more than 100 GB of files dedicated to Steam. I don't play most of those games. Can I just delete them?

Why I'm going with the 42mm Apple Watch
The Apple Watch comes in two sizes: 38 and 42mm. I'm going big. Here's why.
If you haven't seen an Apple Watch in person, you're missing out. Aluminum Sport, stainless steel Watch, or gold or rose gold Edition, they're all built spectacularly well — this isn't your other vendor's smartwatch. They're also, regardless of whether you go 38mm or 42mm, quite moderately sized. The small isn't too small and the big isn't too big. That means most people will have a choice as to which size they want to get. I found myself in just that position and, ultimately, here's why I decided to go big.

How to assign Force Click on OS X
For now there's only one way to assign Force Click actions on your Mac, and only one kind of action to assign.
Sure, that makes un-assigning Force Click the same as disabling it, but Force Touch and Force Click are brand new and Apple has only just begun experimenting with them. No doubt other functionality, and third party app implementations, will follow.

How to adjust Force Click firmness on OS X
Force Click, as the name implies, requires you to put a little "force" behind your click.
By default, Force Click requires a "medium" level of intensity to activate. Apple gives you the option, however, of switching to "light", which makes it easier to engage, or "firm", which requires you to put even more muscle behind it. Whether you're having a hard time triggering Force Click, or you're triggering by mistake, there's likely a setting that's perfect for you.

How to enable or disable Force Click on OS X
Force Click lets you perform a "deeper"-feeling secondary trackpad click to initiate additional actions.
With a Force Click, you can do everything from bringing up Quick Look to Look Up, preview maps and websites, and more. If you like the way it works and feels, it's on by default and you can leave it that way. If you'd rather turn it off, however, and use your Force Touch trackpad more like a traditional trackpad, you can easily do that too. And if you later change your mind, you can turn it right back on.
