How to uninstall Samsung Smart Switch from your Mac
I had a need to install Samsung's Smart Switch app on my Mac this weekend to transfer files over from an Android phone. That's when I discovered how horribly incompatible Android and Apple devices really are and just how terrible Samsung's software is. They don't follow the standard way that apps that run on a Mac get uninstalled, preferring the Windows style approach instead. Boo. This is how you get rid of Smart Switch from your Mac if you happened to (probably accidentally) have installed it.

Importance of cleaning the internal fans and heatsinks in a MacBook Pro
A few days ago I decided to give my MacBook Pro's internal fans and heatsinks a clean, but before I did that I decided to collect some data on temperatures before the clean out. I knew my Mac has been running hotter than usual lately, I just didn't know how bad it was. I've not cleaned its heatsinks or fans ever since I purchased it back in 2012 (4 years now).

Struggle to get the Simplecom USB 3.0 hub working at full speed on a Macbook Pro
I got one of these USB 3.0 hubs recently because I needed to transfer large amounts of data between two disk drives. What I thought would be a painless exercise ended up wasting hours of my weekend time.

Stop Photos.app opening when connecting an iPad or iPhone to your Mac
OS X 10.11 El Capitan has a great new Photos app to replace iPhoto, but it has one very annoying feature. Every time an iPhone/iPod/iPad is connected to the Mac, Photos opens and asks to import photos from the connected device. There is a way to switch this off however.
