Best mouse pads for gaming or business

A great mouse mat is a must for gamers, reducing wear on wrists during hours of intensive play. Many modern ones use chemical coatings or specially engineered surfaces to improve sensor accuracy or reduce drag?a boon if you?re doing repetitive motion that requires high accuracy.

(Don't mistake mouse mats for the smaller mouse pads, once an absolute necessity in the era of mechanical mice. Because optical and laser mice can work on so many different kinds of surfaces, the humble mouse pad has largely disappeared.) 

Plenty of mouse mat manufacturers exist, but few provide clarity or consistency in describing their products. For example, most don?t report how much friction you?ll encounter when using their mats with the most popular mice. To help you find the best mouse mat for your needs, we?ve tested several from a few different companies that represent a range of surface types (metal, plastic, or cloth) and usage cases (business or gaming).

Agents of Mayhem review: Not-so-super heroes

Saint?s Row?s Achilles heel was always combat. It hid this fact by peppering each game with a handful of absurd weapons, from a recliner that fired missiles to the Dubstep gun to the iconic purple dildo bat?still the weapon I most associate with the series.

But even armaments that creative couldn?t hide the fact that combat was often a by-the-book affair. Enemies were brainless, and each encounter involved simply trying to get through it as fast as possible without dying. It?s telling that most of the memorable moments in Saint?s Row had nothing to do with combat, be it the Tron-esque ?Deckers Die? mission, singing Biz Markie in a car with your friends, or an Aerosmith-backed rocket ride into space.

Best gaming keyboards of 2017: Our picks for the top budget, mid-tier, and RGB boards

Choosing a gaming keyboard is a matter of personal taste. One person could be into Cherry Browns and white backlighting. Another might favor Razer Greens and a rippling RGB glow. Gigantic wrist pads, compact shapes, numeric keypads, macro keys, volume controls?a plethora of keyboards exists because everyone wants a different mix of features.

To help you sort through the many options, we?ve sifted through the latest and greatest planks to come up with our top recommendations. All of these are mechanical keyboards, and for good reason?they?re simply more comfortable to use over the long haul. But we?re open-minded, so if we encounter an alternative that works well, you may see it appear on this list. We?ll keep updating it periodically as we test new keyboards.

Which backup method should you use ...

Which backup method should you use for making constant archives of your data?

You've probably heard it dozens and dozens of times: It's important to back up your data. Apple has Time Machine to help you get on a regular backup routine, but are there other methods you should be using?

Different backup methods use different frequencies by which they push updates to an archive. When evaluating these methods, ask yourself: How many copies are made? How and where is the data stored? How securely is data locked away, both physically and with encryption? And, often the most important, how recent?

Here are a few popular methods for consumer backups

  • File synchronization services: These services, including Dropbox, typically monitor particular designated areas of your Mac's storage device and update changes immediately.
  • Local backup software: Apps like Time Machine perform backups on a regular interval, which can sometimes be selected.
  • Internet-hosted backup services: Services such as Backblaze can perform continuous backups, but may not be as up to date as a syncing service.

Why do these backup methods act so differently? It has to do with the computational effort to index files without burning up so many CPU cycles that your system slows down.

This multi-mode modem?it supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G?is capable of speeds up to six gigabits per second and supports most of the exciting new technologies expected in the first wave of 5G mobile products. That means millimeter wave support, stand-alone and non-stand-alone modes, and simultaneous connections to 4G and 5G networks.

How to shift an email address from one Apple ID to another

You can?t merge two Apple ID accounts, those hubs of your iCloud, iTunes, and other Apple online identities. However, you can shift an email from one Apple ID to another if the email isn?t one issued by Apple.

This is often useful if you?re going to lose access to an email address?leaving a job, for instance?or if you were maintaining multiple accounts, and want to settle on just one. It can also be very useful if you had Apple IDs registered in different countries and want to migrate to a single one in a country you?ve settled into it.

There?s a set of warnings and limitations to consider, too:
