Using your WD External Hard Drive with MAC

When you connect your Western Digital External Drive to your Mac laptop you'll notice that your Mac can only read the contents of the WD drive, which is basically a couple of folders containing softwares and the instruction manual of the WD drive.
You won't be able to store folders/pics/docs or whatsoever in your WD, not even to alter the contents of your external drive.
in order to set up your WD drive and make it ready for use.. you have to choose among 3 options, but  remember, there are pros and cons for each choice !

Option 1: Format your WD drive with fat32
with this option you can use your WD drive with both OS MAC and Windows. this choice formats all the data stored in your WD drive "you can copy these data into your desktop and add them back again to your WD drive later on", of course that's if you really need those data, other wise just skip it ";0"!
All what you have to do is: Click on your Macintosh HD icon and locate your Applications folders, and from the Applications folder select Utilities/Disk Utilities that will show a popup windows, select your Passport Drive, and choose the erase tap located on the right side
your volume format should be MS-DOS (FAT). it should take seconds to erase your drive.

Pros: You'll be able to use your WD drive on both Windows and Mac OS.
Cons: The maximum file size per file is no more than 4GB otherwise it wont be saved & lt's not really a big deal!

Option 2 : Format your WD drive with Mac Os Extended
Follow the same steps as illustrated in Option 1 except that the volume format here should be MAC OS EXTENDED instead of MS-DOS(FAT).

Pros: size is not an issue."you can save a file sized more than 4GB"
Cons: it'll work solely on your Mac perfectly, but unfortunately you wont be able to use your WD drive with windows!!

Option 3: use a third party software
If I were you I would definitely skip this option ;/

KOR Water's

If you have to choose among those KOR hydration vessels which one do you like the most?

2- KOR ONE the limited edition.
3- KOR Delta 500 mL "New".
4- KOR Delta 740 mL "New".

For me I like the design of both KOR ONE and the Limited Edition. but most likely I'll purchased the limited edition one.

Each vessel comes in four colors (Blue, Green, Orange, and Pink). it also contains 5 KOR Stones in the cap of the vessels with motivation message and you can also create your own personal KOR Stone and add your own words as a reminder of what inspires you each time you drink from the vessel.

The Core of KOR "KOR is an elemental expression of the word "core", which refers to the central, innermost ,or most essential part. Every person has core values, a core personality, and core aspirations. Some understand their core, others search for their core. To use, Water is at the core of physical life. The Kor Logo both resembles a water drop and is inspired by the Chinese concept of yin-yang, which desribes two opposing and yet complementary aspect of any phenomenon. Graan and blue side of the KOR water drop join to represent the dualistic relationship and balance of earth and water." For more info ClickMe

Steve Jobs VS Adobe Flash

I always wondered why my iPad does not support flash games! like for example playing Facebook games on my iPad without the need to download it from the Apps store! or even checking some of the website that requires flash!
Steve Jobs explained 6 reasons for Apple not to support flash on their iPads, iPods, and iPhone. after reading the "thoughts on Flash" article, it makes sense for me now to realize why my iPad does not support flash and I kinda agree with Steve!

1- Openness: rather than using Flash, Apple has adopted open standards like HTML5, CSS, and Java Script because they believe any standards pertaining to the web should be open. On the other hand, Adobe's Flash products are only available from Adobe and controlled entirely, hence flash is a close system.

2-Full Web: Adobe has repeatedly said that Apple mobile devices cannot access “the full web” because 75% of video on the web is in Flash. What they don’t say is that almost all this video is also available in a more modern format, H.264, and viewable on iPhones, iPods and iPads.

3- Reliability, security, and performance: Flash having the worst security record in 2009 highlighted by Semantic. Flash is not performing well on mobile devices!

4- Battery Life: to achieve long battery life when playing video, mobile devices must decode the video in hardware! decoding the video in software consumes to0 much power!

5- Touch Screen technology: Flash was mainly designed for PC and Mice, not for touch screens using fingers. most of flash websites will need to be rewritten to support touch based devices since Apple's multi touch interface on the iPods, iPads, and iPhones does not use a mouse.

6- Painful experience with third party.
