So you have been a Macbook user for over a year now. It’s a good laptop, isn’t it? But we bet that even if you have been using it for a long time, there are still a couple of things that you didn’t know your Mac can do. These features are usually hidden but really cool. Want to know some of them? Here is a list!
Speak to you. Yes, your Mac can talk! Simply find the terminal app and launch it. Type in what you want your laptop to say and it will do it. If you are tired but want to continue reading a novel, you can place the e-book on the terminal and your Macbook will read the lines to you.
Catch a burglar. Are you leaving for a few days and worried about your home? You can use your Macbook as a security camera. The camera installed on your Macbook is more than just for FaceTime and taking selfies. It can keep a watch over your house while you’re out. Just download a spy cam application like EvoCam or SecuritySpy. You can even have view on your iPhone. Other apps take a picture if someone meddles with your Mac, so they’ll be put off and you’ll know who it is.
Access another Macbook’s screen. This feature is helpful if you need to help somebody about a trouble they are having on their Mac. Well, you might not know it, but all Macs have the built-in ability to look at, and take over, somebody else’s Desktop. It doesn’t matter if your are using an Apple Macbook Air and your pal’s using a Pro. As long as you’re both on the internet and running OS X 10.5 or later, it’s going to work. All you have to do is log in to your iChat and start a chat with your friend and get them to choose ‘Share My Screen from the Buddies’ menu.
Zoom in anywhere. If you are struggling with diminishing eyesight and want to take a closer look at one part of the screen, there’s a feature for that. Mouse over the part of the screen you want to magnify, then press Control while scrolling up. Encourage your friends to buy Apple macbook air in Dubai so they can be as cool as you are!
