iAntivirus Simply Finds That MalwareiAntivirus Simply Finds That Malware

There have been many takes on Mac antivirus software over the years. Some people still refuse to believe that Apple’s prized computers can get infected, but the reality is that the Apple world is less secure than you might wish. ClamXav is a great app if you’re looking for some extra protections from the dangers out there, and it really works its hardest to keep your Mac safe. Our own Jorge Rodriguez reviewed this fine app at the beginning of this year, saying that “it feels trustworthy”.

Your Say: How Do You Stay Up-to-date?

Three Ages of Reading on the Tube by Annie Mole

Decades ago my great-grandmother said that a day she didn’t learn something was a wasted day. That’s even more true today.

The rate of change of technology, software and techniques is incredibly rapid. How do you manage to keep up?

Formal education is still important, but struggles to remain up-to-date. And more and more educational institutions are making their material available online, for example through iTunesU.

The Tuts+ Network and other blogs offer more current education, but without accreditation. Podcasts, YouTube channels and other video streaming sites also contain educational material, and forums are also often educational.

And books remain an excellent source of educational information, and are handier still now they are often available electronically and as audio books.

So how do you maintain your education? How do you make the time? And do you have any hints for us?

Together We Are by Mommy Peace

Eye-teasing motion graphics. Heart-moving music. They are a powerful combination, the two mediums complement one another.

You can post video or motion graphics on VideoHive without audio and customers will appreciate your work. However, video and motion graphics truly come alive when the right music is added.

Which is why more VideoHive authors are choosing to collaborate with AudioJungle authors. They are taking advantage of the amazing professional music already available on AudioJungle to help take their VideoHive projects to the next level.

By collaborating, VidoHive authors can use and promote AudioJungle tracks and AudioJungle authors can in turn promote VideoHive products in their item descriptions and portfolio profiles. These clever authors are marketing and promoting each other’s work. Here’s how you do it!
