Mac mini RAM upgrade kits undercut Apple

It would appear that the Mac mini from late 2018 is quite a bit more versatile, hardware-wise, than most other Apple products. Today the folks at iFixit revealed they'd been working on a set of RAM stick replacements for those delivered with the most recent Mac mini release.

Pocket Casts 7 update finally makes queuing easy

Pocket Casts 7 update finally makes queuing easy

Sure, there's a bunch of other stuff in the update, but that ability to put another episode after the episode that's playing - that's all I wanted. This app now has a dark mode - essentially the entirety of the app, by default. That'll be a whole lot nicer for the ol' battery life than the all-white layout that was the app since the beginning.

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

Normally I'd never say an all-in-one machine was "versatile" in basically any respect - they're supposed to be made to be easy to use, primarily. The ASUS Zen AiO seems to be something different. I've not yet gotten my hands on one, so I'm not certain how well it lives up to its claims, but it would appear that it's designed to look nice at the same time as it offers easy access to its innards - that's pretty rare.

How to Delete more default Windows 10 apps

Microsoft is gradually allowing the deletion of more default apps in Windows 10. This comes after many, many years of presumption that the most major operating systems in the world would come with a catch. If you downloaded or bought an OS from Microsoft or Apple, you'd be getting the apps they wanted you to have. Now, that trend might be fading.

These AOC displays have no frame

There's a new display in town from AOC, and it comes with what AOC describes as a "frameless" body. This is part of the V2 Series of frameless monitors - again, AOC's term, not ours.

Each of the monitors has a Full HD IPS display panel with AMD FreeSync tech under the hood and what AOC calls a "true zero-edge design".
