Knightwise.com is a website with hacks tips and tweaks for cross platform geeks. The home of the Knightwise.com cross platform podcast that makes technology work for you and not the other way around. A place to go for all geeks who slide between Mac, iOS, Android, Linux and Windows offering an essential mix of hacks, tips, howtos and tweaks spiced up with a dash of geek culture.

What is our philosophy? In our daily lives, on the internet, whether we want it or not, hundreds of new inventions, thousands of websites and millions of bits of information engulf us as the tsunami of progress sweeps along the shores of time. You have the choice: Be washed away on by the virtual surf or turn technology into a tool that works for you.

Here at Knightwise.com we think that YOU are the most important element in the technology that surrounds you. Technology should enable you and not lock you in to some vendor or product. That is why we focus on cross platform solutions that work on any operating system or mobile device you might be using, making YOU and what you want to DO the focus of our content. We dont believe in fanboys, we dont believe in vendor lock-ins and we dont believe in brands. We cater to the geeks who slide from operating system to operating system, free their data and communications and let technology work for them instead of the other way around.
