It can be a bit of a pain trying to print from you iOS devices or an Android phone.  Apple have helped by introducing Airprint,  but not all printers support Airprint so in some ways this has made the problem worse.  Yet again Google have come to the rescue. Google allow you to set up any of your printers as a ‘Google cloud printer.’  Here’s how.

One of the most popular posts on macintoshhowto is this 6 year old article on how to clean an Apple mighty mouse. It’s had over 200 comments!

Here’s a video so you can see what it looks like.

Apple recommend rubbing a piece of paper over the top of the scroll wheel, but I find turning the mouse upside down and running it round in circles is much more effective. The paper must be new and clean. An old piece of paper doesn’t work.

I’ve been using this method 2-3 times a year for 6 years and my Apple Mighty Mouse with scrollwheel is still going strong.

I have lots of ‘subscription’ emails arriving in my inbox. Some I have subscribed to, some I am not sure how I ended up being subscribed. I just found a great tool for unsubscribing from them all in one go. It’s called unroll.me and here are the results, I unsubscribed from 54 email lists!

An article at theatlantic.com

I just read a fascinating interview with Tristan Harris, former Google employee who worked on Google Inbox about the way these companies manipulate us rather than serve us with their software. A must read if you use facebook or any messaging or email app.

Tab Launcher is a great little app that sits on the side or top of your screen. It’s like a manilla folder where you can put commonly used files. It makes accessing them much quicker.  The great thing is you don’t have to actually move the files into tab launcher.  Your files stay exactly where they are but this is an easy way to access them.

Apple AirPods can only be turned off by putting them back in their carry case.

In this recent review of the Apple AirPods I discovered that when you put your iPhone into flight mode the Apple Airpods continue to transmit high levels of EMF. So next time you board a flight or enter an area in a hospital that requires you to turn your phone off, be sure to put your AirPods back in their case, not in your pocket.

Lots of people have commented on the possible increase in EMF exposure from Apple AirPods, but how bad are they? I’ve done some measurements with a field strength meter.  Here is a graph to give you an idea.

When you use the new Apple Airpods on a mobile phone call a you are getting approximately 10 times the EMF than if you were just holding the iPhone up to your ear and talking.   We already see these levels on wifi devices.  The difference is that the Apple AirPods are in your ear, not on the table, and they remain there for long periods of time. They are constantly transmitting at this level – they never turn off.

My new Apple Airpods arrived a week ago.  I must say they are a bold piece of hardware and they have evoked very strong emotions of love and hate within me. In many ways they are a beautiful piece of engineering and design and on the other hand they are a complete failure in some important ways. I love them and I hate them and here’s why.
