Okay. Once a while, I steal good ideas from my sister. So this time it was the dock. But it was good, most of my colleagues rounded near at the first glance itself, my dock where my iPhone finds itself happy right next to my palm. Being choosy pays, we get attention; or look at this case. I did spend time to get the one for me, not any ‘random picks’ came across some which are striking and indeed serves best. Okay, so I thought why not share it up here for those iPhone dock seekers! Obviously there are many manufacturers around, most of them flooding designs sometimes hard to choose the right ones from the pile. Here I bring you my best picks.

The Enduring Appeal of a Mac: Why Are These Computers So Popular?

Apple brought out the first Mac computer in 1984, and since then these iconic computers have developed a growing following of enthusiastic fans. After using a Mac, many people decide that they would never going back to using a PC. But why are these computers so popular, and why are so many people prepared to pay higher prices for a Mac? Here are five of the most important reasons.
1. Build Quality
One of the things that has made Macs so popular over the years is the build quality. Many Mac owners will tell you that these machines are built to last. Apple takes its design very seriously, and above and beyond being beautiful products, Macs and MacBooks are seen as very tough. Of course, they don’t last forever, and if you find yourself saying “I need to sell my Mac and buy a new one”, it could be time to trade up for a new model. However, in general, you should not have to buy a new machine too frequently.
2. OS X
OS X is claimed by Apple to be the most advanced operating system in the world. It certainly has a huge appeal for Mac users, who love its simplicity of use combined with its powerful features. What’s even better, Apple regularly updates its OS, and it has recently started charging a very small price for an upgrade. So if you are still using Snow Leopard, it won’t cost that much to upgrade to Mountain Lion, and you can then enjoy a whole new OS without having to spend a fortune.
3. Secure
One of the most important benefits of a Mac is that it offers greater protection than devices running on Windows. Viruses targeting Macs are almost unheard of, and Apple claims that you do not need to invest in any antivirus software for your Mac as it will stay protected. This has been debated in recent years, but many Macs still run without using any antivirus software, which can help to save you money.
4. Seamless Integration
Because Apple designs both the hardware and the software, users get to enjoy all of the benefits that this seamless integration brings. Macs very rarely crash, and, as Apple likes to say, ‘everything just works’. Many users find this to be true, and it makes the whole experience of using a computer a lot more enjoyable.
5. User Friendly
Most Mac users would tell you that they find Apple’s way of doing things much more user friendly. When using a PC, sometimes it can be difficult to know how to solve a problem or even perform basic functions. However, with a Mac things are a lot more intuitive even if you have never used one before, making it a pleasure to use.

A Different Type of Personal Computer
Macs offer computer users with a very different experience compared to a PC, and despite being a more expensive option, Apple has a large and growing fan base for its computers. Even though tablets and smartphones are changing the way that people access computers, the Mac still has a long life ahead of it, and will be popular with fans all over the world for many years to come.
