Life Pro Tips: Three-Finger Dictionary Lookup

Probably every reader of this little blog has the dict.cc plugin for OS X’s dictionary app installed. I just realized that you could do a dictionary lookup for words in nearly every OS X application with your fingertips.

How to pair Amazon Fire TV remote with Apple MacBook

I have an Amazon Fire TV with its sleek remote control and like the simplicity of both the Fire TV and the remote.
