Manually Join a Wireless Network

With a laptop and a few bucks in your pocket, nearly any coffee shop can be your remote office, thanks to wireless Internet access. Mac OS X is smart about wireless networks, asking if you want to join one when you’re in range if you’re not already connected. You can also choose a network manually, as follows.

  1. Click the AirPort icon in the menu bar.
  2. Choose a network to use; the icons to the right of the name indicate whether a network requires a password and show the signal strength.
  3. In the dialog that appears, enter the network password and click OK.

Hold down Option and click the AirPort menu bar icon to view a host of technical information about the networks, such as which protocols they use, transmit rates, and types of security employed.

Christina at Computer World shows you the differences between the new MacBook and the older MacBook models in this short video! Although the new MacBook has a slick new retina display, there are a few changes that you may want to be aware of before purchasing the new model (for example, it doesn’t have a CD drive, similar to the MacBook Air!)

Summer Computer Tips!

Although we don’t like to think it, computers can be sensitive, especially to hot weather. To keep your computer (and your lap!) cool, try a computer fan like the Zefyr 2! We have them at Computer World and they work wonders!

Here’s a video of Christina demonstrating how easy the Zefyr 2 is to use! It’s the perfect computer accessory for a hot and sticky summer!

There’s Always Space On The Dashboard

Dashboard is automatically assigned a Space in Mission Control. If you like using Spaces (alternate Desktops) to control screen clutter, you might want Dashboard to relinquish its automatic assignment so that you can use that Space for something else.

You can uncheck the Show Dashboard as a Space option in the Mission Control preferences, but it won’t open up another Space. Even if you never use Dashboard, its Space is permanently reserved.
