Ask the MB: Computer Background Images

Ask the MB: Computer Background Images
Q: What do MBs have for a desktop background on their computers?
--Don


A: A picture of either a.) their kid(s), b.) their pet(s), c.) their wife, or d.) all of the above.

Just messin' with ya! Don, we're glad to see some understand an MB communicates even with his computer's display settings. Custom or design-y backgrounds are the equivalent of over-accessorization, like simultaneously wearing a necklace, watch, earring, and ring. Focus on things that matter: time invested in choosing a picture of a sunset is better spent finding a killer pair of shoes.

(Top: Choose "None" on Windows. Bottom: Choose "Solid Colors" on Mac, preferably a neutral.)
