Disinfect Your Keyboard

Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:

  • Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
  • Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
  • Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
  • Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.

Month of Apple Sales: Getting Around to It -- We're tired of the childish "Hey, look at me while I break this!" Month of Apple Bugs project, so here's a constructive alternative: four weekly "Month of Apple Sales" offers on our Mac-specific Take Control ebooks throughout the month of February.

First up is the Getting Around to It sale, in which we invite you to consider the state of your New Year's resolutions after a month. If one of them was to bring your Mac up to date with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, we're giving you a good reason to spend some of the slow, early months of the year upgrading to Tiger and coming up to speed. That way, you'll be in a position to watch Leopard's release and first few months of upgrades from the safety of Tiger's stable and mature vantage point. The reason? A whopping 60 percent discount on the following big bundle of 7 ebooks, giving you over 700 pages of essential information about Tiger for only $22 (normally $55).

  • Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger
  • Take Control of Customizing Tiger
  • Take Control of Users & Accounts in Tiger
  • Take Control of Syncing in Tiger
  • Take Control of Passwords in Mac OS X
  • Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac
  • Take Control of Your AirPort Network

To take advantage of this discount, just purchase from the Month of Apple Sales: Getting Around to It page.

And yes, if you want the bundle but already own one of these books, feel free to give your extra copy to a friend. Stay tuned for next week's sale!
