A little while ago, Apple released MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar, a new method of interacting with the computer. The Touch Bar lives above your keyboard, replacing the function keys with contextually-aware software buttons that can trigger specific actions. There’s been some hemming and hawing about whether this constitutes a good features, but unless […]
For many high-end users, Apple’s most recently laptop release has been a source of frustration. The new MacBook Pros, released back in October 2016, have been widely seen as disappointing. Mediocre hardware updates, along with limited battery life, fewer ports, and a hard cap on available RAM all contributed to the general impression that this MacBook Pro […]
With the release of the new MacBook Pro, Apple has finally made the switch to full USB-C. Macbook Pros will feature only USB-C ports that run the Thunderbolt 3 protocol, meaning they’re fast as heck and you can finally plug in a cable any which way you like. The downside? You’re gonna need some USB-C adapters […]
Apple’s much-ballyhooed “Hello Again” event last Thursday was promising. With the release of new Touch Bar-enabled MacBooks, Apple fans finally have something to be excited about. And yet, if there was an emoji that best described the general reaction to Apple’s new releases, it would be the dude rubbing his chin skeptically. What gives?
If you’ve been following Apple’s releases lately, you’ll undoubtedly notice that emergence of the “Pro” moniker. From the iPad Pro to the MacBook Pro, it appears that Apple is designing its products for professionals — at least that’s what the name implies. But there’s something else to consider, especially in light of the 9.7-inch iPad […]
Trying to decide which MacBook is right for you? If you’re in the market for a new Apple laptop, picking between the brand’s great offerings is an enviable position, but, without a doubt, it can be tough to make a final decision.
During the WWDC in the summer of 2012, Apple unveiled its newest versions of its MacBook lineup. The 13-inch version was a combination of power and portability, and the 15-inch model packed just as much of a punch as the 13-inch notebook, but the extra screen space gave you just a bit more real estate […]
If you have a relatively old MacBook, the chances are that you’ve been typing away at the keys, smudging the screen and gliding over the trackpad with some pretty disgusting things on the tips of your fingers. But how do you clean your dirty MacBook? (I’ll admit that there are probably those among us who keep […]
Across the United States, college students and their parents are filling dorm rooms and backpacks with the essentials, but do you (or your college student) have the right gadgets for school?

Amidst the hype surrounding the unveiling of iOS 9 and watchOS 2.0 at last week’s Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple also gave us a preview of what to expect from the next version of OS X as well.

One of the reasons that I love Apple computers so much is that they are quality products that continue to perform at a very high level for a long period of time. They are not only dependable and durable, but also extremely easy to use and maintain. But over time, all computers – no matter the brand […]
Now that the Apple Watch and the new MacBook have shipped to customers, the fervor that surrounds new Apple products is likely to die down – at least for a little while. But the Cupertino-based company is far from finished releasing new products this year, that much is certain. From the devices that we know […]
One of the more interesting new technologies that Apple developed while designing the Apple Watch is Force Touch. This is the ability of the Watch’s touch screen to sense just how much pressure is being applied to it and respond with different options accordingly. Press lightly for instance to make menu selections or launch an app. […]
A few weeks back Apple announced a beautiful new edition to their laptop line-up in the form of the new MacBook. This stunning laptop, which comes in three different colors, is the thinnest and lightest Mac ever, and features a 12″ Retina display, as well as an innovative new trackpad. While on the surface, this […]
It’s not that this comes as a surprise. After all, anyone who has used the Retina MacBook Pro knows that the possibility of going back to a non-Retina device is practically nil.
