Customers demand that companies monitor the way their goods fail, good products go through rigorous processes in which possible problems are analyzed and troubleshot whilst still in-factory, but…what do you do when your device fails? Here is how to restore your Mac OS.
Surely everyone has heard the infamous phase “Have you tried turning it on and off?” Over and over, it starts to make us wonder if such a trivial solution to what seems to be a complex problem really is the way to go.
