iOS 8 Introduced Wi-Fi Calling and iOS 9 introduced what's called Wi-Fi Assist. They're two distinctly different features. The first has no downside, but the second could, and it's turned on by default in iOS 9. John Martellaro explains.

When you install Google Chrome, you're not just getting a browser. Google's automatic update software gets installed behind the scenes on your Mac, without your consent. John Martellaro explains why it's there, how to manage it and how to delete it if you don't need it.
We've recently written some tips on how you can have more freedom when working with your OS X Dock. But what if you need the opposite: to lock it down?
