SSH (or Secure Shell) is a great service to enable on your Mac at home or work. This useful tool not only enables the ability to remotely access the command line interface of your Mac, but also to remotely access your files through a secure FTP (SFTP) connection, which gives you the ability to transfer files at will. Read on to find out how to transfer files between your own computers over a secure network connection using any modern FTP program.
If you frequently use iTunes or even an Apple TV, you’re probably familiar with Apple’s free Remote app for the iPhone and iPod touch, which lets you control those devices. If you’re wondering why the App Store favorite hasn’t been updated in eight months, it turns out the reason is that it’s developed by one lone dude -- and he’s busy with another project for the company.
It's an age-old problem. You left home thinking you had saved the most
recent version of a document to your flash drive or to your MobileMe
account, but when you access it at work your "blah blah blah"
placeholders are where your charts should be.
The meeting's in
ten minutes. What do you do? Recreate the missing charts from memory?
You wish. Luckily, FeelHome's got your back.
Our entertainment-center remotes are like tribbles; they look warm and
welcoming at first, but we swear they keep multiplying to the point of
overrunning the living room. We spend more time swapping between
clickers than actually pressing buttons… so we’ve replaced them all
with a single, universal device: Logitech’s Harmony 900. And it does
more than just duplicate the original remotes’ controls--it adds new
features. We had one significant setup problem, but after we corrected
the issue, the Harmony 900 excelled.
Even though tons of us use Google Docs or some other cloud feature,
there's always that annoying moment when you want to work on something
and realize you created it and saved it to your work computer. Or you
stayed up late working on something at home, then get to work and
realize you don't have access.
LogMeIn solves that problem and
with the launch of LogMeIn Pro2 for Mac Beta, they've made it a snap
for those of us on the Mac end of the equation.
Controlling a Mac is typically accomplished by sitting by the computer,
mouse and keyboard in hand. But what if you want to access your Mac
from another part of the house? Maybe you need to check on the progress
of an encode without having to walk into your home office. Or you’d
like to help your child understand how to work an application down in
the playroom without leaving the study. Or you’ve just broken your leg
and you wish you didn’t have to move from the sofa to control the Mac
you’ve turned into a media center.
