    Curved monitor for photo editing?

    Does anyone use a curve monitor for photo editing? I'm thinking of replacing my dual 27" monitor setup with a single 4K 32" curved monitor. Does anyone have issues with photo editing on a curved monitor? With a looming stay-at-home order in our city, everyone in my family will be going to school...

    Macrium Reflect, stand-alone Backup, and when Windows Repair Fails- "Unscheduled System Restore"

    https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree I started using Macrium Reflect several years ago after making 512GByte FAT-32 disks that could dual-boot DOS and Windows XP for working on embedded systems.

    Chromebook woes ...

    I only post this thread to let you all know about something rather annoying and potentially catastrophic: My Acer Chromebook CB3-431, a 14" model with a really nice case and screen, started acting up a while ago. Twice before, it had ended up with a damaged OS already, and recovery took...

    MacOS: Is Safari tied to the operating system or is it independently installed & upgradeble?

    Configuring 2019 iMac for Photo and Video Editing

    My 2011 21.5-inch iMac with i7 chip, 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD is beginning to slow down but still works. However, it can no longer be updated to the latest Mac OS. Given its age, it's probably time to replace it. But my budget is not unlimited and cannot handle a completely maxed out 2019...
