mac&egg Skool – Explanations of Technical Terms

Having no basic technical knowledge of your own equipment can be annoying. After all, knowledge is power and technology is known to do what we want. At mac&egg Skool we therefore explain in simple terms and avoiding phrases like “You must know this” and “Who does not know that” the essential terms in dealing with Apple products and their surrounding accessories.

Too cool for skool?

We always try to find an example that does not come from the technical environment. After all, the structures used are usually already known from another area and occupied only with a groovy English-language term.

Do you have to learn something here? No. But you will, because it is interesting. 😉 And if you still have questions -> -> we are there for you.
