One of the unwelcome side effects of Apple's success in the last five years has been the scourge of sneaky software that sleazily sidles into your Mac. It often changes your search engine, puts ads over your web sites, and makes your computer perform poorly.

Chanukah has crept up on us this year (yes, it starts the evening of December 6th) so we’ve quickly put together our list of top 10 tech gifts for 2015.
Hey everybody! Apple just announced a big pile of stuff. Here's what they had to say:
Singing the Praises of T-Mobile
Some of you know that I frequently sing the praises of T-Mobile. No, their network isn't as extensive as Verizon's or AT&T's, but it is so much cheaper, and never more so than when you're traveling internationally.
Or, more specifically, on my wrist. I confess that I was an Apple Watch skeptic; I don't wear a watch, and I didn't really feel the need to start, since my iPhone does a perfectly capable job of keeping the time, and I always have it on me. But every time Apple would demo the watch during one of their presentations, I'd find myself oohing and aahing. Then I'd go back to wondering what I'd possibly need it for.
So, Apple had a big event this week. What do you need to know?
As of January 1, you can no longer throw away a computer, keyboard, cable box, fax machine, or MP3 player – by law, all these items must be recycled.
Here’s our list of the top 10 cool tech gifts for this holiday season. They range from stocking-stuffer size (and price), to things that are definitely a splurge.
First off, a few of you have been asking us if it's cool to go ahead and upgrade to iOS 8 at this point. The answer is yes.
It's a big week -- the iPhone 6 starts shipping (and appears in stores, not that you'll be able to buy one) on Friday the 19th, and we'll have lots to say about that soon. And today, Apple releases iOS 8, the new operating system for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
