How to bring the bold fonts back to iOS 7

One of the many visual changes made in iOS 7 over that which came before it is to the font. Slimmer, lighter, and altogether more delicate, there are as many who hate it as there are who love it. For many, a legitimate concern is that the new font is more difficult to read. It doesn't matter how nice it may look if you're strugging to read what's written. Fortunately, a little of the pre-iOS 7 font can be brought back to life. Here's how.

How to export your iWork for iCloud files for compatibility with Microsoft Office

When it comes to desktop publishing, Microsoft Office has long been the staple, the standard in the space.

While files may naturally save in Apple's native format, getting an Office compatible copy takes just a few clicks. This is especially important for users of Windows PCs where there is no option to run native iWork files. Here's how to do it.

Enjoy buying movies and TV from Google Play? Here's how to watch them on your iOS device!

If you use an iPhone, an iPad or an iPod touch, then there's a strong possibility you already get your online TV and movie fix from iTunes, Netflix or Hulu. But, what about Google Play Movies and TV?

Retina MacBook Pro battery life sucks? Here's how to fix it!

You buy yourself a shiny new MacBook Pro Retina, and it comes with a pretty healthy claim on battery life. Especially, taking into account all those pixels that are being pushed around on that gorgeous display. You may also, like me, have noticed over time a pretty sizeable deterioration in your actual battery life. For example; this morning my 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina was showing 2 hours 43 minutes remaining on an 80% charge, and I've been struggling to get much over 3.5 hours total usage before needing a wall outlet. But, a bit of searching around and I found a couple of solutions that should see your battery life return to normal.

How to hook up an Xbox 360 controller to your Mac

I like playing games on my Mac, but as a console gamer at heart, I much prefer the joypad to the keyboard and mouse. In particular, racing games like Dirt 2 -- recently acquired as part of the awesome Feral bundle -- just don't feel right to me controlling them with a keyboard. Not to mention the immense discomfort I'm feeling after a session. The solution; hooking up a controller. And, since the Xbox 360 controller is common, not that expensive, and easy to connect, that's the route I went. So, lets show you how you can do it too.

How to use multiple Apple ID's with one computer and iTunes

Many families share one computer and in turn, may back up and sync more than one iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with that one computer. If everyone in your household all shares the same Apple ID for purchases in iTunes, it's normally not an issue. But what if that's not the case and you all want your own Apple ID's for iTunes purchases and you don't want mom's cooking apps mixed in with dad's finance apps? As it happens, you can set iTunes up to separate Apple ID's quite easily.

It'll take a little bit of effort to set up but once you're done, none of your apps, music, tv shows, and movies will be intertwined nor require you to authorize all accounts in the same iTunes library. Here's how.
