Direction and focus are both crucial in business presentations. One of the issues when using a laptop connected to a big screen is that you need to be within arms reach of the keyboard to page through your presentation. Sometimes this setup is neither practical nor desirable. For instance, suppose you want to direct a presentation standing beside a big screen at the front of a room. Sprinting back and forth to your laptop or winking awkwardly at a co-working to page forward can break the flow of a presentation. AirServer installed on your laptop solves this problem by giving you the freedom direct your presentations how you really want to.

Apps we can't live without: Default Folder X Software success is fleeting—for every program such as BBEdit that becomes a software staple, you can find countless applications that are all the rage for a year or two and then either stop working or fade in popularity. Longevity is especially rare for software that tweaks your Mac’s features and interface: Whenever Apple releases a major OS update, it renders some of that third-party software incompatible or irrelevant. In other words, it’s tough for system-enhancement software to stay both compatible and compelling.

Guest writer and High School Principal David Mahaley is using this approach and offers his insights, and observations from educators in his school. With the integration of the iPad into the instructional environment, teachers and students have discovered many new ways in which the device can expand and enhance the learning environment.

AirServer and Reflector One of the coolest features available to iPhones and iPads has been the ability to mirror your devices display to your television using an Apple TV. AirPlay has been around even longer, which let you direct a video or audio stream to your Apple TV or (in the case of audio) to an AirPort Express with attached speakers. However, in Mountain Lion, Apple went a step further and allowed supported Macs to also be able to mirror their displays to the Apple TV. Unfortunately, in what many consider to be an incredible oversight, Apple never went the opposite direction and allowed iOS devices and Macs to mirror their displays to other Macs. Some might consider this overkill, but it’s an excellent way to capture gameplay video from an iOS device and it’s also helpful in a classroom or work environment when Apple TVs aren’t readily available. Enter AirServer and Reflector.
