Sony PS4 Remote Play on OSX connected to a Dell U3415W
A couple of days ago the PlayStation Blog announced it's 3.50 System Software Update which included one of the best features released in a long time - Remote Play with support for PC and Mac! I took some time out today to check it out and I really like it.

Dell Vostro 1510 SSD Upgrade
Recently I spent a bit of time upgrading an old Dell Vostro 1510 laptop with an SSD drive. The improvement was quite decent though overall this laptop would not come out on top in any benchmark results even with this upgrade. That is mainly due to its graphics card and processor, however if you have one of these and want to give it a little boost and extend its usefulness then upgrading the hard drive to an SSD is worthwhile.

Adding extra USB ports to the Dell UltraSharp U3415W Curved Monitor
The Dell UltraSharp U3415W Curved Monitor comes with 4 downstream USB ports already, but what if you need more? Or what if the 3 ports that are inside the cable cover are just not enough and you don't like using that 4th external port, it is in an odd spot after all. Turns out you can cram a USB hub inside the cable cover and double the number of available ports that are hidden from view, check it out!

Use 'Separate Spaces' option in OSX to stop the second display switching desktops
At home I use my Mac in clamshell mode so I've never had a need to do anything on the second display, however at the office everyone who was not using an external monitor was given one now, so all of a sudden I had a second display to use. As soon as I connected it, I instantly remembered why I've been avoiding dual displays on a Mac - whenever you changed desktops on one, the second display would change its desktop too. This is very annoying if you use the second display to hold some reference material or a document while you work on the primary display. Luckily with Yosemite (although I think it was added in Mavericks) this can be changed.

Dell UltraSharp U3415W Curved Monitor Unboxing
So my previous monitor was getting a little small for the work I was doing and was also starting to play up a little, randomly turning off and back on after prolonged use. It was time to get a new one. Enter the Dell UltraSharp U3415W monitor. This thing is a beast! The box it came in is also just as impressive.
