Apple Store now in Philippines

I received an email from Apple today and I was surprised that there’s an Apple Store in Philippines Apple Online Store.  Woohoo!!!

 

I started using Macbook months ago and I’m really excited that they now ship Apple products in Philippines and the catch is the shipping is free when you order more than PHP 3,000.00.  Another thing is if you are an eligible student or a teacher you can get discounts on Apple products.

 

 

A while ago I tried to compare the price of the Apple Online Store and JR.com where I ordered my Macbook.  I looked at the price of iMac 24” which I am planning to buy for my room and a difference of $47.00 that you’ll pay extra when you order through Apple store and have it delivered in the Philippines.

 

Not bad at least I don’t have to carry it from Dubai to Philippines. 🙂

 

 

Mac OS X Softwares Free Downloads

Versiontracker.com is a site that shows all Mac OS X Softwares that you can download for free but not everything though (some are shareware).  But most of the softwares that a newbie like are mostly here.  I just downloaded Yahoo Messenger for Mac and I installed it fine compare to the software that was directly downloaded from Yahoo site, there is an error that shows.

This is just a tip from a Mac newbie user like me!

Learning Mac: How to Capture Screen in Safari Web Browser

I was used to capture screen with Windows OS by just using Print Screen button then paste it to MSPaint and voila you can save it, but with Mac OS I have to search to do this simple screen capture.

For you newbies of Mac OS like me, here’s how to capture a screen image in Safari Web Browser:

1. Press command + shift + 4.

2. Select the area of the screen you want.

3. The files go to desktop, and you can use the Preview application to convert the captured image to PDF & PNG.

If you’d like to capture the whole screen, use command + shift + 3. Read More

Eagerly waiting for my MacBook

macbook.JPGLast week, I’ve finally decided to buy a Macbook to replace my Dell Inspiron 1500 (my 2nd laptop).  It took me at least 2 years to decide and finally I have decided to switch to Mac World.   

I was kind of hesitant about the idea of buying the Mac but my buying impulsiveness won over.  I bought it through JR.com and it costs me $1,479.99, its $20 cheaper than when you buy through Apple.com – but the shipping is a bit expensive, it costs me almost $40.  So, to lessen the expenses, I used my affiliate link so I got a 5% discount.  It’s a good deal, don’t you think so?
