15 Things You Didn't Know You Could Do With Your Macbook

Your iPhone and Macbook get along better than you might think.

If operating systems were books, then the Macbook (and OS X in general) is the mystery genre, with Steve Jobs the Sir Conan Doyle, Sherlock and Moriarty all rolled into one. Known for its simplistic, minimalist design, the Macbook achieves such streamlined sleekness by not telling its users about half of the features accessible to them, leaving their owners to flounder helplessly when one of these unknown services goes awry and they must venture onto the forums in order to try and find a fix - or indeed, even an explanation. That is why lists like these exist - the last bastion of hope against unintuitive user interfaces that are able to be operated only by Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, and the other genius inventors of history (who probably would never have used a Macbook). For mere mortals like ourselves, we must look to the signposts in the silicon valley to make our way, cautiously, through our own laptops or personal computers. Fret not, little one, for What Culture shall be your guide in showing you how to get the most out of the beautiful silver screen sitting at your desk. The journey shall be long, but it shall be rewarding. One more unto the breach, dear friends.
