Unveiled this week is the Cupertino firm’s vision of how touch and notebooks can co-exist, and it’s a very different interpretation compared to the 2-in-1’s and convertibles we’ve seen in Windows land.

The Apple Tax – A concept of economics

The Apple Tax – A concept of economics

For those who’ve been monitoring consumer technology long enough, the term ‘Apple Tax’ will be familiar. It’s a phrase coined in the late aughts to cleverly describe the high price tag of Apple devices, like the Mac.

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.
