Is it Possible to Run PC Programs on MAC?

While the concept seems impossible, PC programs can actually work on a Mac. Back in the day that may have seemed almost taboo and unheard of, but now many Mac users have the ability to operate PC software with ease. This has become even truer since 2006, when Apple transferred their line of Macs to Intel processors. Because of the switch in processors, this enables Macs to have almost the same structure as PCs. Fortunately because of this, there are certain software packages that one can purchase to enable Mac users to run PC programs. Here are a few of those software packages that can help you run PC programs on your Mac.
1. Parallels Desktop
2. VMware Fusion
3. Apple Boot Camp
4. CrossOver Mac
All 4 of these software packages can be purchased online, and many electronic stores may also have them for sale. These software packages guarantee …

You can scroll through a document such as a webpage by swiping up and down on your trackpad. You can turn pages by swiping back and forth. To zoom out, simply pinch.
Full-screen apps take advantage of your large iMac screen, or make better use of the screen on your Macbook. This gives a simplified, much …

Why Macs Have a Different Operating System Than a PC

The story behind the Apple OS is fascinating. Traditionally, Apple used Motorola CPUs, but later migrated over to Intel CPUs. Apple hasn’t made much information available about installing the MacOS on non-Apple products. In fact, one computer developed by Psystar resulted in a lawsuit from Apple because they didn’t like their operating system to be installed on non-Apple computers.
The lawsuit was surprising to many computer users, because the very fact that anyone would create a clone to run their operating system should be considered a compliment of their design.
Most Mac-users would never consider buying a clone, so market shares would never be moved away from Apple products anyway. But one can understand that there is big business in keeping your products unique. But it could be argued that money isn’t made from selling hardware – whereas the big bucks are earned by selling more software.
In that regard …

Agile Development, a Growing Trend in Software Design

Agile development is a growing trend in the software industry. The methodology has started to become widely adopted both in corporate environments as well as with the independent contract developers.
Agile software development aims to provide stable direction of a project throughout the entire course of development. Agile development accomplishes this via regular swing of work, known as stories or iterations, at the end of which a development teams must deliver increment of software. This process is in contrast to older methodologies such as the waterfall method.
The waterfall methodology usually creates an environment where teams only have a single chance to get each element of a project correct.
The term agile development was coined in 2001 and was introduced in the Agile Manifesto. The methodologies behind agile development advocate stringent project management and the process encourages iterative analysis and modification throughout the life of a project. Because agile development …
