Dr. Cleaner: A Great App To Speed Up Your Mac

Own a Mac and ever wished that you could speed it up with maybe just a simple, easy and uncomplicated mouse click? Well, that is exactly what Dr. Cleaner could do for your Mac.

Available for a free download on the iTunes store, with several great reviews, Dr. Cleaner gives your Mac a performance boost by freeing up plenty of disk space and by also clearing up your Mac’s memory, two vital processes that can affect your system performance.

Here’s a quick overview on how Dr. Cleaner works to get your Mac running faster than before.

Disk Clean

    • Purges useless cache files that typically build up over time
    • Empties out temporary download locations
    • Deletes browser cache and unnecessary files related to iTunes downloads
    • Cleans out your trash (files in trash are otherwise still using disk space!)
    • Completely removes all traces of an app that you want to uninstall

    Memory Optimizer

      • Purges unused memory and makes it available to your Mac’s processor
      • Frees up unnecessary memory used by recent files that you are done with
      • Gives you an easy memory monitoring app to analyze your Mac’s memory usage

      While advanced Mac users who run routine maintenance on their Mac’s will not find Dr. Cleaner doing anything revolutionary, amateur Mac owners will definitely benefit from giving it a quick run. Dr. Cleaner can be particularly useful for those who do not have any idea about how to delete junk like cache files, system files, log files and binary junk off their Mac.

      Dr. Cleaner, available for a free download at iTunes, is only designed to delete files that will not affect your OS’s native functioning. It will also not delete your personal data automatically. As for memory cleanup, the program is intuitive enough to only free up that memory that you don’t use anymore.

      For instance, when you finish watching a movie and close the movie app on your Mac, remnants of that program will still continue to use your Mac’s memory for a period of time. Dr. Cleaner will free up such redundantly used memory.

      On iTunes, Dr. Cleaner has over 1,000 ratings, with an average of 4.5 stars out of five, which is very impressive. Mac users from around the world have lauded it for its simplicity and efficiency, often citing that it is a quick one step solution for speeding up a Mac that might have slowed down unusually.

      While Dr. Cleaner can provide quick and easy speedups for your Mac, more troubling performance issues could warrant slightly more elaborate fixes, as described in this very detailed 21 step Mac speed up and clean up  guide on the net.

      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

      Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

      Does technology have all the answers?

      This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

      Creating technological solutions transparently

      This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

      Technology as the connecting tool

      Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

      “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
