Facebook is waiving the fees of donations for up to $500,000 worth. Donate to your favorite charity today! (Source: Facebook)
Do You Want A Cool Mac Background?
Back in October, Google released a Wallpapers app for Android. The Wallpapers app had beautiful, scenic pictures for users to use as a screensaver. The struggle was that these were only available for those Android users…until today. Now, Mac users are finally able to download the app and use the photos as screensavers on their computers.

Life Hack: Calendar Notifications
If you have found that your iPhone is giving you spam like calendar notifications, you’re not alone. In the past few weeks, many have found that they are getting annoying, irrelevant notifications from their Calendar, all linking back to Chinese email addresses. Many have been tweeting Apple saying the notifications had been inviting them to various sales and they did not sign up for any of this. If you are one of the people encountering this problem here’s what to do:
- Don’t decline the invite – this shows the sender you are an active account
- Change your iCal settings – signing in through iCloud, change your settings to get event invitations emailed to you. This means they won’t be sent as an annoying push notification.
We hope this solves your iCal frustration. (Source: Mashable)
