Avatar_MollyONeilMost of the time I can find what I want on the Internet, then there are those other times when it's just too overwhelming. This week I thought I'd list some PC and Mac website to narrow down your choices and hopefully make your surfing better. Both Mac and PC users can view all these sites.

Mac Users

myfirstmac.com

Mac Everything Site My favorite Mac site. This site lists helpful Mac websites (lots) and its own Tips and Tricks, Getting Help, The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs and more. There are also many topics on the site for beginning and experienced Mac users. This site has everything a Mac user could wish for.

PC's

You can find phone numbers for large corporations, computer history and news, a computer dictionary and tons of computer help - and it makes sense. There are some things for Mac users too.
