Noted OSX:Turning Off Ads in Parallels

Parallels, a division of Citrix, on Mac OSX is my preferred choice for Windows emulation. I’ve tried VMware Fusion but found it slower, less reliable and kind of flaky.

With a single keystroke, I can see the contents of the last 30 copy/paste actions, use the arrows to move between them and then […]
