Today I just couldn’t keep the truth suppressed anymore! Having concealed it in the sea of silence, confusion, and surprise for long, I thought I should now vent out what had been churning within.
A couple of months ago, I was peeved by the sluggishness of my MacBook Pro. So horribly the laptop was running that I decided to take the help of utility software to remove the cached data and speed up the notebook. One of my friends suggested me to try MacKeeper.
I used the tool to remove the junk files and unnecessary apps. And much to my surprise, my MBP returned to normalcy. I upgraded the software, and I have consistently used it since then. Thoroughly impressed by its performance, I suggested it to my family and friends, and they have found it truly appreciable. But that is my personal experience. More after the jump:
MacKeeper for Mac Review
Most Proficient Cleaning Tool
Right from the day one, I have found this cleaning tool very effective. But its latest version has gotten smarter and automatically optimizes and monitors your Mac’s RAM while you are performing your daily tasks. And when you scan your notebook, it provides accurate information showing exactly what you need to do to get rid of unnecessary data.
You can use the advanced option of Memory Cleaner to set up automatic cleanup. Then, you will be able to run Memory Cleaner from the menu bar quickly.
To ensure junk files are neatly eliminated, the app has inbuilt specific tools designed to take control of different types of cache. For instance:
- Binaries Cutter: It enables the app to scan your apps and locate the files designed for other platforms. When detected, these files are marked for removal. And the ones, which have been designed for the platform that your macOS uses, will remain untouched.
- Languages Cutter: It assists the Mac software in scanning your system and your apps for different interface languages that waste disk space.
- Logs Cleaner: It scans your hard drive for system and user log files that hog disk space.

- Smart Uninstaller: It lets you get rid of the unnecessary apps, their widgets, preference panes and plug-ins. Hence, you are able to completely remove any apps from your Mac.
- Duplicates Finder: It lets you find file copies with different names.
The tool is very effective in discovering junk ﬁles including temporary caches, logs, unused language packages and legacy application parts which take up a lot of hard drive space and slow down your Mac. Apart from perfectly scanning your computer and finding out all the redundant files hogging storage or killing performance, the app does a great job of cleaning them up fast. That means you don’t have to spend a lot of time in searching what ails your device and what’s needed to be done to cure it off.

Therefore, it’s imperative to be extra cautious and offer the essential shield to the confidential data.
To ensure your computer has the much-needed safeguard to thwart the nefarious design of hackers, MacKeeper now provides trusted protection for the camera and microphone of your Mac.
The security software monitors all third-party app attempts to access Mac’s camera or microphone. As soon as it detects any unauthorized attempt to access the webcams and microphones on your computer, it immediately alerts the user.

The newest version of the Mac optimization tool keeps adware at bay. For those unfamiliar, it’s the sort of software that automatically displays or downloads advertising material like banners or pop-ups when a user is online.
Hence, with the adware protection onboard, you will be able to browse web not just securely but also be able to prevent those sensitive and unnecessary ads from ruining your user-experience.

While iOS 11 didn’t receive much attention at Apple’s Fall 2017 Keynote, the company did announce a few new updates to its mobile operating software. Namely, a new Portrait Lighting mode and AR optimization for the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
Portrait Lighting Mode
Portrait Lighting mode is a new feature added to Portrait Mode that automatically applies studio lighting effects to photos taken with an iPhone. Like Portrait Mode, the feature allows for a shallow depth-of-field effect, but also adds five different lighting “styles.”
It uses the proprietary Apple image signal processor installed on the A11 Bionic CPU to recognize an environment, create a depth map, and separate the subject of a photo from the background. The system then uses machine learning to create what Apple calls “facial landmarks,” allowing it to add lighting contours to various regions of the face. This all happens in real time.
Portrait Lighting will be restricted to the rear-facing, dual camera on the iPhone 8 Plus. On the iPhone X, however, it will be available on both the rear- and front-facing cameras.
Like was previously predicted, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X are the first mass-market smartphones optimized for augmented reality experiences. While iOS 11 will introduce augmented reality on the software side (via the ARKit development toolset), the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X all have hardware-side tweaks to better the overall AR experience.
For example, the A11 Bionic CPU in the iPhone 8 lineup and the iPhone X is powerful enough to handle world tracking and environment recognition in real-time. The Apple-designed graphics processing unit and image signal processor are also built from the ground up to optimize AR content.
The cameras on the iPhone 8 Plus are also specifically tailored for AR by way of individual calibration and new gyroscopes and accelerometers for much more accurate motion tracking. The iPhone X’s rear-facing camera module shares these upgrades, but also adds new capabilities for developers to create AR content specifically for its front-facing TrueDepth camera suite.
Verizon Wireless has been throttling video feeds from Netflix over the course of this week, with the carrier claiming it is part of a temporary trial of system to optimize traffic from video streaming services without impacting quality, though customer reports seem to suggest it is a bandwidth cap on Netflix content.
AppleInsider – Frontpage News
Netflix launched a speed test tool a while back in part because ISPs have been caught in the past doing shady things with Netflix traffic. The fast.com speed testing tool this week revealed Verizon has started throttling Netflix, and users report YouTube is also affected. So, what gives? Verizon says it’s just testing some “video optimization” technology, whatever that means.
Using the Netflix speed testing tool, users of Verizon’s LTE network appear to be limited to 10Mbps.
