Duet Display second screen app for iOS and OS X now available

Earlier this week we detailed Duet Display, an app that'll turn your iOS device into a second screen for your Mac, giving you an extended display in situations when you need more screen real estate but don't have a monitor around to utilize. The app wasn't available at the time, but it didn't take long for it to drop, and as of now you can grab both the iOS and the Mac varieties, breathing new life into that old iPad.

Surface Pro 3’s latest ad takes jab at the MacBook Air

Microsoft rolled out its latest ad for the Surface Pro 3 over the weekend, and in it is the same tired theme we've seen before: comparison with an Apple product, in this case a MacBook Air. It's short and sweet at 30 seconds, and focuses on the features offered by the Surface Pro 3 ("...it has got a USB!") while a MacBook Air sits next to it relatively ignored. Festive imagery is sprinkled throughout, no doubt encouraging viewers to grab one for the holiday season.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro notebook is thin, it's transformable, and it would appear to be Microsoft's newest favored son as it does battle with the MacBook Air in Microsoft's newest TV ad spot. This device is thinner than the MacBook Air. It's able to bend backwards far enough to turn itself into a tablet. It's got a touchscreen. It's also very similar looking to the MacBook Air from afar - but they really couldn't be more difference, when it comes down to it.

The issue is said to affect both the 15-inch and 17-inch screen versions.

Word comes from the folks at Chitika where they show OS X 10.10 Yosemite being present on 12.8% of the Apple computers in their ad impression bin. With Mac computers selling at a rate 30% faster here in Apple's latest earnings report than they were last year at this time, an increased adoption rate of Yosemite over Mavericks is all the more impressive.

SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

The term “laptop computer” is a bit misleading. Sure, your Macbook might fit on your lap, but it’s definitely not designed just for that. A flat, metal bottom that gets noticeably warm when you use it for prolonged periods only leaves you shifting in your seat, or shoving a pillow underneath. The last thing you want is to leave the comforts of your favorite chair and head to a desk. The SlateGo wants to help end your warm-legged shuffle, but does it really work? Let’s find out!

Don’t hold your breath for a Retina MacBook Air this week

MacBook Air lovers may be crying out for a Retina display upgrade to their favorited ultraportable, but Apple will leave them wanting after Thursday's event, according to new leaks. A higher-resolution version of the MacBook Air, following its more expensive MacBook Pro sibling, has been rumored for some time now, with chatter back in July suggesting the pixel-packed notebook was headed into production imminently.
