VLC media Player
VLC is a free and open-source video player for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix. It is an alternative to other video players such as YouTube, Hulu Plus, and Netflix. VLC can play most videos formats supported by the operating system it is installed on. It can also play videos from external storage devices such as a USB drive or external hard drive. VLC can also play videos from the Internet using HTTP streaming. The video files can be played using either the built-in player or through an application that is installed on the system.
VLC can be used to watch video files stored on remote servers or uploaded to other sites such as YouTube. VLC is also useful for viewing video files stored on local computers and uploading them to other sites such as YouTube.

It can be sorted and stored in a drawer for display on the desktop, so the drawer replaces the original messy icons, such as screenshots, documents, etc. The drawer location appearance can be changed to be highly personalized, and the files in the drawer can be dragged and dropped to such as emails becoming attachments, etc. So the drawer can not only be seen, but also can be used to hover the mouse scroll on the drawer, very convenient to find the application, the drawer opens as if the phone clicks on the folder, at a glance.
Alfred is very well regarded as Mac productivity powerhouse. With Alfred you can even implement a variety of operations without a mouse, including starting a variety of files, network operations, its UI interface is easy to use, and not through the command to achieve, is the developer and keyboard Liu children’s shoes of the artifact, compared to the previous similar software – Pack and Power is completely the rhythm of the second kill.
How to use Alfred
This is the most basic, option+ space activation, enter keywords to start searching, by default will match the installed application, I also set the search Safari bookmark. If it can’t be matched, then options such as Search Google will appear, directly triggering the opening of the browser to search engines. Unlike Spotlight, which searches for various types directly, Alfred has to type an extra space or single quotation mark to indicate that it searches for file names. In actual use, I think this is more convenient and faster, Alfredis almost a second result, and spotlight in the rapid feedback of the result at the same time, there is a gradual increase process. In terms of the actual search effect on files, Alfred’s fuzzy search for file names is OK, but it is not as powerful as Devonthink even the content of the file. Of course, the toughness of DT is also the result of your indexing, each with its own expertise. Spotlight feels centered and supports file content search, but it’s still not as thorough as DT. By the way, DT is on sale these days, you can see here. It is estimated that many of the keyboard streams are called geek, so Alfred supports direct “>” after opening the terminal to execute the command line. Alfred also lovingly supported the integration with 1Password.

VirtualBox is an open source virtual machine software that runs on the Mac platform, you can use VirtualBox to run Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems, powerful, and support running multiple operating systems simultaneously in multiple virtual machines. VirtualBox is a so-called “managed” hypervisor (sometimes referred to as “Class 2” hypervisor). While “bare metal” or “Type 1” hypervisors can run directly on hardware, VirtualBox requires an existing operating system to be installed. Therefore, it can run with existing applications on that host. For the most part, VirtualBox functions identically on all host platforms and uses the same file and image formats. This allows you to run a virtual machine created on one host on another host with a different host operating system; For example, you can create a virtual machine on Windows and run it under Linux. In addition, virtual machines can use the Open Virtualization Format, which is easily imported and exported to the industry standards created for this purpose. You can even import OVFs created with different virtualization software.
