All of those are solid tips, but the fourth option could use some clarification. Each model of machine has fans that spin at a different rate. For example, older MacBooks have different fan speeds than new MacBook Airs. 3500 RPM won't always be the magic number.

Apple's goal is to be incredibly efficient internally. Some machines only have one fan, some have two and all of them are clocked differently based on the components of the machine you are using.

A Clear Alternative to DSL and Cable: CLEAR 4G WiMax

Hey guys. Really awesome look at Clear. I had researched it previously but it looks like they've really bumped up their service since then.

I noticed you mention their 4G Home and Mobile plan and that you aren't tied down by a contract. I'd love to try that, but I can only find that plan with a contract at the price you mentioned. Am I missing something?

"The 8GB model costs $250 less than the 8GB, 3G-less version of the iPad, yet offers Flash support and multitasking."

Apple doesn't make an 8GB iPad. oops.

I'm an evernote junkie. Syncing all of my notes to all of my devices is great. One thing that has bugged me lately as someone who switched from safari to chrome, is the terrible chrome plugin. The safari clipper is amazing. The plugin they have built for chrome to grab websites into my notes is terrible. I'm using evernote less and less these days.

I tend to rearrange smaller pieces all the time. I like to shuffle up my art on the walls as well. Gives me a fresh feeling.

Also, link the to first picture? Love that space. Need to see more.

if it were 326 ppi it would be retina. 300 dpi is just plain old print resolution.

Love those floors and the light and airy feel. Love those barstools as well. I really want to see more of what I'm guessing is the kitchen through the doorway in picture 4. Full tour coming soon?

Anyone know where that chair is from? Love it.

Love this simplistic style. Did you shoot that desktop wallpaper? It's a nice shot. Maybe have a link?

@mariyaodessa Those wire chairs were designed by Bertoia for Knoll in the 50s. There is supposed to be a pad on it that you sit on. Not exactly a new fad. I like the side chair more than the diamond chair, but to each his own.

This is easily one of my favorite spaces featured on Apartment Therapy. I'm currently looking for a space to downsize to. My place right now is about 1000 square feet. I would love to get into a loft around 500 or 600 sq. ft. so I can live in one of my dream neighborhoods. Seeing your 500 square foot space with both a fully functional kitchen and outdoor space gives me hope. Hopefully I can find its LA counterpart.

Is that an old wooden crate as your bedside table? It's a little hard to make out because of the light, but I love it. Also, I love your use of old doors around your space. I've got a thing for old doors and windows as well.

I agree with the previous two commenters. I'm all for getting clutter off the desk, but if I have to get up out of my chair to reach around my monitor, I might as well keep all of that stuff on my shelving unit next to my desk.

This seems like a perfect hot or not poll. Definitely not.
