How the new MacBook Pro made me rethink the Apple Watch

How the new MacBook Pro made me rethink the Apple Watch

When the Apple Watch launched, I eagerly bought into the hype and ended up with the wearable on my wrist. It was easily the best wearable I’d ever tried (I’d sampled plenty of Android Wear devices with Nexus handsets ahead of then, and no thanks).

Now that new MacBooks Pro are here, I’m confident I’ll never buy another Apple Watch.

Don’t expect an iPhone SE successor in 2017

Don’t expect an iPhone SE successor in 2017

Earlier this year, Apple released the iPhone SE, featuring the iPhone 5's looks and several components from the more advanced iPhone 6s. It was meant to be a slightly more affordable model for those still wanting a 4-inch display, but avoided being seen as a cheap, entry-level device like the iPhone 5c was. Unfortunately, if you're among the users that the iPhone SE appealed to, it looks like Apple has no plans for a refresh in the first half of 2017.

Apple USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 prices cut amid MacBook Pro dongle outcry

Apple USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 prices cut amid MacBook Pro dongle outcry

Today Apple cut prices of USB-C accessories of all sorts, citing a need for legacy connections to older devices by professionals. The MacBook Pro is meant to be a professional notebook, and as most accessories have not yet moved to USB-C, dongles are needed. Apple suggests today that they've seen the need for this, and are therefore cutting costs to USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals throughout the Apple Store.

One of the few developer crews still working on Pokemon GO mapping of monsters is FastPokeMap, and today they're back in business.

iPhone 8’s “one more thing” may be a 3rd phone

Apple is said to be planning something big for the release of iPhone 8, and one possibility is the addition of a third phone to the lineup.

The SD slot had to die, Apple’s Phil Schiller insists: Here’s why

The SD slot had to die, Apple’s Phil Schiller insists: Here’s why

Apple's decision to go all-Thunderbolt 3 with the new MacBook Pro is still, a week after the event, causing controversy, and now Phil Schiller has waded in to make the official argument. The decision to drop USB Type-A, HDMI, and other ports in favor of the multi-functional - but decidedly rarer - Thunderbolt 3 has seen many pro-users up in arms, but it's the absence of the SD card slot that has many truly fuming. According to Schiller, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, it's a slot that'd had its day.
