macOS Sierra has landed: here’s what you’re getting

While we’re still waiting for a refreshed MacBook line, Apple has gotten the Mac ball rolling with the official release of macOS Sierra. Available as a free update, for those who already own the previous El Capitan version, of course, the latest version of the operating system formerly known as “OS X” closes the gap between desktop and mobile even further. From talking to Siri to being able to share clipboard content between Mac and iPhone or iPad, the latest version of Apple’s desktop OS is perhaps, somewhat ironically, also the most mobile.

Logitech K780 Multi-Device keyboard types on Windows, Mac, or Smart Devices

You can work from a tablet or a smartphone if you need or want to, but the catch is that typing on an on-screen keyboard isn't exactly comfortable or fast for most of us. Logitech has a new keyboard that is designed to allow you to type on multiple devices that will make typing as fast for your smartphone or tablet as it is at home on your PC. That new keyboard is called the Logitech K780 multi-Device Wireless Keyboard.

macOS Sierra launch date revealed, Siri front and center

To say that Siri is the star of the upcoming new macOS release is perhaps an understatement. Even Apple’s macOS Sierra page dedicates no small amount of space to the feature. Of course, that’s not the only new thing in the new OS version and you will soon be able to experience all of those first hand, for free if you already own El Capitan, when you upgrade to Sierra in two weeks’ time.

New Macs expected in October, iPad Pro enhancements in 2017

Apple’s fans have been bemoaning the lack of new devices from the company’s Mac portfolio but, if insider sources are to be believed, that languishing will soon come to an end.

And it doesn’t stop there either, as Apple is also said to be working on software improvements that will make the Apple Pencil a lot more useful and widespread on iPad Pro apps.

The Wolfe empowers Macs and MacBooks for gaming, VR

Laptops and notebooks are great for portable computing, but when you need the heavy artillery, you hare mostly out of luck. Unless you have one of those high performance gaming laptops that are so heavy and hot (literally) they might as well be desktops. Or you can back this Kickstarter almost ominously named the Wolfe, which gives Macs, MacBooks, or really any computer with a Thunderbolt 2 or 3 port, the graphics processing power to drive games as well as virtual reality experiences.

Disney brings Aladdin and other 16-bit classics to PC, Mac, and Linux

Disney brings Aladdin and other 16-bit classics to PC, Mac, and Linux

If you're like me and grew up in the 16-bit era of video games, then you'll probably remember Disney's collection of platformers fondly. Those games not only showed that good movie tie-ins can exist, but also what good platformers are made of. Make no mistake: Disney definitely had a hot streak back in the mid-90s, and now through its partnership with GOG.com, we can relive a few of those memories on PC.

Sonos Controller gets tap to play on Android, adds Bandcamp support

Review: Bear notes app for Mac

Review: Bear notes app for Mac

A new app has caught the attention of Mac users far and wide -- it's called Bear, and it promises to be the only notes app you need. Getting your hands on Bear isn't easy, at least not right now, as it is still in beta and rolling out to interested users in limited batches. If you're waiting for your own download link, be patient -- Bear is absolutely worth the wait. Apple's own Notes app looks positively archaic in comparison.

Even Apple is having a tough time selling PCs, says IDC

Even Apple is having a tough time selling PCs, says IDC

The term "PC" is hardly something anyone, especially Apple, would use to label its Mac computers. After all, it popularized the Mac vs PC ads. But for the sake of statistics and to show that everyone is affected by the PC slump, that is exactly what market analyst IDC did. Labels aside, IDC's figures do reveal how even Apple, whose Macs have traditionally done better even in the face of the PC market's decline, is having some number problems when it comes to shipments. Not exactly welcome news at a time when analysts are predicting continued slowdown of iPhone sales.
