  • Mac for beginners

    For those who are new to computers, or those who have previously been using PCs and are new to Mac, the graphical user interface–or GUI–in OS X may be somewhat unfamiliar.  

    The problem with being unfamiliar with something is that you may be reluctant to experiment. And experimentation is a good way to learn.

    This series of tutorials is aimed specifically at the beginner; at the person who is new to Macs or, perhaps, completely new to computers.  

    Each author explains–in easy to understand terms–how to get started with a range of applications that will familiarise yourself with some of the functionality of a Mac.

  • Paperless icon2

    There's no reason to have cabinets full of paper cluttering your office, when all of that data could be saved on one hard drive and be infinitely more useful. Most of us have already started going paperless in some ways, since so much of our communications and documents are digital-first already, but you've still got to do something with all the paper documents you already have.

    In this series, you'll learn everything you need to go paperless. There's tutorials on scanning documents, letting your computer recognize the text in your scanned documents via OCR, organizing the scanned documents with Evernote and more, and editing the resulting PDF documents in a wide range of popular apps.

    Paper doesn't have to be a menace anymore. Here's the tools you need to make your paper documents as useful as your digital-first documents.
