I recently found myself faced with a 2.5″ NTFS formatted laptop hard drive from a 5 year old laptop that wouldn’t cooperate and would constantly fail so I decided to try and recover what I could from the drive by running SpinRite, a great application from Steve Gibson of Gibson Research that I have used successfully […]

Performance issues with VMWare Fusion 6.01 running on OS X 10.9 Mavericks resolved by fine tuning App Nap options

Waiting in line is one of the many memorable events at WWDC. I’ve met several people from all over the world.
