<p><span style="font-size:17px">Pilots love iPads; just take a look at any commercial airliner and you're apt to see the pilots carrying iPads equipped with Electronic Flight Bag applications.

Apple’s Dictionary is cooler than you think

<p>Apple's Dictionary app for the Mac isn't sexy. Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, doesn't show it off during press events. That privilege is reserved for Dictionary's bigger siblings, like Mail and Safari. But don't be fooled, Dictionary is super cool and helpful. In this post I'll highlight useful things Dictionary can do.</p>

Preparing for the Apple Watch

<p>During a recent earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the Apple Watch will ship in April of 2015. While we wait, fantasizing about our lives as Dick Tracy, there are a few things we can do to reduce setup time once the device is in our hot little hands (or on your hot little wrists, as it were).

Alfred Remote Adds Star Trek-like Efficiency To Your iPad or iPhone

<p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px"><a href="">Alfred for Mac</a> (free with optional <a href="">"Powerpack"</a> purchase) is one of my favorite applications for one simple reason: usefulness. Alfred lets me launch apps, find files, control iTunes and so much more with simplicity and tremendous efficiency. </p><p>Now, Alfred's developers have released a companion app for the iPhone and iPad called <a href="">Alfred Remote</a>($4.99, universal for iPhone and iPad).
