First, I use CrashPlan for all my work and family computers (which I mentioned before, here). Unlimited backup to the cloud for up to 10…
QuickBooks on a Mac
The only thing I haven't yet moved over from my Windows PC is QuickBooks, because it uses a different database for the Windows and Mac versions. Since my accountant doesn't use a Mac, I'm worried about compatibility. Then again, I don't remember the…
