About

MacUseful.com is a new website dedicated to providing useful tips and information for Apple Mac computers. On occasion it may include helpful things to do with Android (where it relates to interacting with a Mac) and/or an iOS device such as an iPad or iPhone, or possibly even Apple TV where appropriate.

steve-profile-wetaThe site is independently operated by Steve Brown, an ex-IT consultant (who now works in healthcare) who has over 25 years experience in the IT industry, primarily in a Microsoft environment but also programming in Java and Linux system administration. And that’s one of the nice things about macOS really, it’s UNIX basis makes it extremely powerful, and pretty secure (although not completely impervious these days!).

Steve also operates a site for Mac Software Reviews which as the name implies contains articles about all sorts of Mac software. So, whilst Steve is perhaps something of a ‘fanboi’ it is worth pointing out that currently his mobile phone is a OnePlus 6 and his tablet is a Google Nexus 7. That’s because Steve likes to choose the right tool for the job, bearing in mind such things as cost and ease of use. In that vein, you won’t find any blinkered ‘Apple is the best’ information here, unless it actually is.
