Fedex/Apple Pre-Sign Authorization Doesn’t Work

I ordered a new Apple wired (not wireless) keyboard for the office and I got myself one of those new Magic Track Pads via the Apple Store online. I am a big trackpad user on my laptop and I often find myself missing the features on my excellent but now somewhat limited Logitech MX mouse.

Hope To Never Need Gmail’s Priority Inbox

Last night, Google’s Gmail announced priority inbox. I love the concept and I think it can be incredibly useful. But I hope I never have to use it on a daily basis. As many of you know, I have email OCD. There are fewer people who reply to emails as quickly and efficiently as I

I Go Through Mice Like… Next Up, Logitech M500

I seriously go through too many computer mice. Today, I got my new mouse – possibly considered a downgrade from what I had beforehand, the Logitech MX Revolutions – I got the Logitech M500. It is basically the same mouse with two main differences: (1) It is corded, not wireless. (2) It is missing the
