Strafe: a game reveling in retro-graphics FPS glory

Strafe: a game reveling in retro-graphics FPS glory

Back in November of 2014, we first saw the face-blasting pixel-blood glory that was the first "sneak peek" at the game Strafe. Here in January of 2015, the Kickstarter has begun, and the glorious mix of old-school graphics and new-world humor has been revealed. Even if you have no interest in investing in a game before it's released, even if you're not planning on playing any gore-filled first person shooters any time soon, you absolutely must watch the "banned commercial" this group has created to push their product.

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

A designer by the name of Michelle Vandy has begun using her nose to do her job on her computer. Instead of using her arms, wrists, and fingers to tap into graphic design, she's rigged up a tripod, a stand, and an Apple Magic Trackpad to construct what may be the world's first "Nose-pad." Without the use of this Nose-pad, Vandy might otherwise have had to give up on design altogether, entering a different working field where she'd not have been able to use her talents to such a fine degree.

Apple delivers first ever automatic software update to Macs

Apple delivers first ever automatic software update to Macs

There are bug fixes and there are bug fixes. And then there are bug fixes so severe that they need to be plugged up immediately. But no matter how fast software providers try to patch up things on their end, bad users habits sometimes mean that these patches don't get downloaded or applied immediately, if at all. That is why Apple is making use of a feature it already had launched two years ago to deliver a critical bug fix to Mac users without them having to lift a finger.

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

The MacBook Air hasn't changed in a massive way for the past several years. It hasn't really needed to. Apple's PC sales have done exceedingly well in the recent past - since the MacBook Air was launched, really. Now it might be time for a new design in the form of tiny feature changes. The first - and perhaps largest - of these is a click-less TrackPad. This wouldn't be a big deal in a PC - the "tap to click" feature has been in play for several generations - but for Apple computers, it's relatively new.

There are some studies that claim that productivity is increased manifold by a second or more monitors. Whether you buy that or not, it might be pretty handy at times to have that setup as well.
