Don't fret over Black Friday and Cyber Monday having technically come and gone, retailers are still discounting products far and wide for the holiday season.

It may sound far-fetched but you can actually get similar performance out a MacBook Air as an M1-powered MacBook Pro, with some fairly straight-forward modifications. You simply need a P5 (pentalobe) screwdriver and some inexpensive thermal pads. Some may be curious as to why the MacBook Air doesn't already have... Read more...
Around this time last year, there was much hoopla over Apple's first Macs with the company's home-grown Apple Silicon, dubbed the M1. Almost immediately, rumors swirled about what the follow-up, rumored to be called the M1X, would have in store. Never mind that at the time, Apple released a power-efficient champion... Read more...
Alder Lake and benchmark leaks have gone hand-in-hand, and that continues to be the case now that Intel has launched its initial batch of 12th Gen Core processors. The leaks keep coming because there are more Alder Lake CPUs on the horizon, both on the desktop and the first mobile/laptop parts. Regarding the latter, a... Read more...
At long last, Apple is embracing the right to repair movement by graciously allowing owners of certain iPhone models to fix their own hardware without interference. This raises the questions, has hell finally frozen over? Not so fast—my initial reaction to the news is that this is a double-edged sword. Let me break it... Read more...
Tim Sweeney has never been once to mince words. He is especially outspoken as the chief executive officer of Epic Games and there is no disputing how he feels about the industry at large, or about Apple and Google specifically. Those two entities have been known to draw his consternation (as well as lawsuits), and in... Read more...
Right to repair is one of those topics that's surprisingly contentious even though it really shouldn't be. The arguments against the idea that customers shouldn't be unfairly restricted from repairing their own devices are few, weak, and really only serve to support disgustingly-unethical business practices. This... Read more...
Apple is launching a subscription services for small and mid-sized business with up to 500 employees.

Apple certainly raised eyebrows when it announced its departure from Intel for its CPU needs, instead opting to go with its own home-grown silicon solutions.

The biggest and burliest version of Apple's iPad family is the latest generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, released earlier this year.

When consumer virtual reality made a resurgence with the launch of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, many people dismissed it as a short-lived gimmick, with widespread comparisons to the brief hype period surrounding 3D TVs. Those people have not been paying attention to the last two decades' determined efforts to use... Read more...
Today's smartphones and smartwatches heavily emphasize health features, with heart rate monitoring, sleep diagnostics, step counters, and the so forth. Relatively soon, however, Apple may add a new feature to its iPhone and Apple Watch devices—crash detection, which would then dial up 9-1-1 for you if you're in an... Read more...
Historically, teardowns of Apple's MacBook Pro laptops have not gone all that well, to put it nicely. Apple has not exactly been a champion of the right-to-repair movement, and more like a begrudging participant. Is the new MacBook Pro with Apple's upgraded M1 Pro and M1 Max processors any different? We'll have to... Read more...
We can see the shiny tips of the pitchforks and the glow of torches already, so let's begin by saying this—we're fully aware people aren't lining up to buy Apple's new MacBook Pro laptops strictly to play games (if at all). Be that as it may, Apple chose to compare its revamped MacBook Pro models to PC gaming laptops... Read more...
It's almost impossible to remember a time before the Apple iPod. You know, back when we carried around cassette decks for running or walked cautiously holding our CD players (so they wouldn't skip when playing back our favorite mixes). Then came the Apple iPod, and it revolutionized the industry. It also ultimate made... Read more...
Here in the early going, benchmark comparisons pitting Apple's latest custom silicon against other hardware are a mixed bag of results. That's how it will probably go when the revamped MacBook Pro 16 and 14 laptops hit the street—how they fare will depend on the application. One that appears to favor Apple's newest... Read more...
Well now, that didn't take very long at all—Apple's revamped MacBook Pro 16 and 14 laptops with their fancy new M1 Pro silicon is hot off the assembly line, and already discounted! We're not talking about a gigantic savings, mind you, but to be reduced before they even release to retail? Sure, we'll take it. There are... Read more...
It can sometimes be difficult to live up to lofty expectations, and Apple definitely piled the hype on its latest MacBook Pro models, powered by its next-generation M1 Max and M1 Pro custom silicon. But will the upgraded MacBook Pro lineup ultimately buckle under the weight of a mountain of hype and expectations?... Read more...
I have a confession to make. When it comes to Apple products, I like some of them. A lot. Like the iPhone lineup (I'm currently using an iPhone XS Max), and the AirPods Pro. Perhaps more controversial, I'm not bugged by the notch, not at all (though I understand why some people hate it). But I'm also not blind to the... Read more...
Did you miss Apple's livestream today? No worries, we have you covered with the highlights. If you haven't already, check out write-up on Apple's new and highly hyped M1 Max and M1 Pro silicon, which serves as a primer for its upgraded MacBook Pro laptops introduced today. The latter is the focus here, as well as... Read more...
It was a little over a year ago when Apple announced plans to inject its Mac systems with its own custom Apple Silicon based on Arm, kicking Intel and its x86 chips to the curb in the process. What was said to be a two-year transition plan began in earnest with the M1 system-on-chip. That's officially a last-gen part... Read more...
