Whenever we install an extra operating system or known as O/S inside our Mac, on startup, we can choose on which to boot. This is crucial whenever we feel like to choose over other O/S for some emergency use.

Firstly, we will have to prepare a Mac that has more than one operating system. For this instance, Windows and Mac.

Next, hold down the Option key (alt) before pressing on the power button. Keep the Option key hold even after you release the power button.

Soon not long after that you will be prompt with a menu for you to select which operating system to boot into. Enjoy!

How to use spoon and fork to eat rice?

The main dish in Asian’s food are usually served with rice, which acts as the main food chain in our lives. But of course, it’s not perfect but I would also like to share on how you can eat rice with both fork and spoon.

Normally, with rice in front of us during mealtime, we can eat with either fork, spoon, chopsticks or even fingers, but of course it will be covered in later times.

To start with it, first is to have one of your hand to scope almost half of the spoonful of rice. (I’m a left-hander).

And of course to ensure everything is in place, it’s best to support with a fork on your other hand.

With that said and done, you are now ready to have your first taste of the rice. Enjoy!

How to use w850i’s camera?

 The W850i is an absolute all-in-one entertainment gadget i assume. Not to be a fanboy myself (trying to hide it) but of course I would like to share with you some of the function of operating the 2.0 Megapixel camera inside this handphone. Really a lot of nifty function, that I didn’t found in the W810i though.

Here’s the White version of W850i.

To start, kindly slide down your phone to unlock the phone.

And then select camera from the menu.

With the camera selected, you are almost ready to go with shooting spree. But wait,  there are a lot of hidden tools beneath the softkeys. Which, to reveal it, press on the 0 (zero) on the dialing keypad, and there will be indication written on the lcd screen of the phone.

As indicated on the help screen, it did said something about extra button on the top of the phone. But where is it? Note the extra “bumpy” area at the side.

Both of it are button which one of it activates the Flashlight on the fly.

While the other one lets you select what kind of mode you want to shoot, be it, normal, panorama, frame (you can shoot with props around your face, eg. cage) or burst mode (shooting a lot of pictures at a rapid speed). Enjoy!

How to use mouse with wheel?

Out of so many great inventions for computers, there is one that we can never live without. Mouse. And here I would also like to share with you, in case you have a mouse with wheel, that you can click on it.

Here is a typical mouse that you can find on the market, priced around the range of RM10 to RM50.

For righthanders, this is how you normally access to the mouse.

With the second finger (cloest to thumb) resting on the left click of the mouse, the fourth finger (closest to pinky finger/where people usually wear rings, i think)  lay rest on the right click of the mouse. And for the mousewheel, you can leave the rest of the job for the middle finger.

So how do we normally use the mouse? With a limited space around a table, most of the times. We try hard to reach ‘hard to reach’ areas and stretching our arms unnecessarily.

To avoid such strains, kindly hold the mouse up from the table and then place the mouse closer to you and continue browsing. This will then ensure total enjoyment without much stress on the palm and your arm.

For the mouswheel, which are used for scrolling, you can actually use it for clicking. Which, for normal website browsing, clicking on it will bring up this unusual icon on your screen…

Which you then are able to maneuver  the website like the mighty mouse from apple, vertically  or horizontally or both at the same time. That’s about it. Enjoy!

And one worthy note on the red LED on the bottom of the ‘ballless’ mouse, it’s really harmful for the eye which it’s best to avoid your kid to look directly into it. Peace.
