So your Mac keeps rebooting itself when you're right in the middle of your work, and when it restarts, it's giving you some scary dialog boxes about sending reports to Apple. Unfortunately, there are lots of things that could be causing your problem, from bad third-party software to a misbehaving USB device. Fortunately, there are numerous resources to help you figure out what's going on, and we're going to discuss some in today's Quick Tip.
One of the less-touted (but still cool!) new features of iOS 9.3 is the ability to sync PDFs into iBooks through Apple's iCloud syncing service. In today's Quick Tip, we'll talk about how you'll enable that, where you can view those PDFs, and how to add new ones to your devices!
Today's Quick Tip is about emailing groups of people on your iPhone or iPad without having to type in each person's address every time. First off, how do you do it?

Have you ever wondered about those weird sites listed as "frequently visited" within Safari on your iOS device? How do you delete them? And even better, how do you prevent the crazy places you've been from showing up there? Helping you keep your friends' respect is the subject of this Quick Tip.
Today is Pi Day. While some people might say that Tau is more relevant than Pi, it's still Pi Day. With that in mind, you may want to wish your friends a happy Pi Day. And while that's cool, it's even cooler to wish them a Happy π Day (OK, well, it may or may not be cooler to do this, but it's definitely geekier!). We'll show you how to get the π symbol by adding a Greek keyboard to your iPhone.
Recently we discussed using Audio Hijack's experimental Low Latency Mode to be able to hear your own signal while recording your podcast. Today we build upon that and use Loopback to allow your Skype or Hangouts guests to hear not only your audio but any theme music or other audio snippets you might want to play.
You have probably seen suggestions on how to construct a more secure password.

We've got some security tricks for you here, all about what you can do if you accidentally leave your Gmail or iCloud account logged in on a computer that you don't trust.

Preventing mischief is the subject of today's Quick Tip.
