New MacBook Pro could have USB-C with MagSafe feature

New MacBook Pro could have USB-C with MagSafe feature

USB-C might be great and the future of connectors, but for MacBook owners, it's somewhat of a step backwards. Apple has long had a reversible port and while the USB-C finally makes that a standard everywhere, it lacks one particular MacBook feature: MagSafe. That is pretty much what fans of the MacBook Pro are dreading in Apple's upcoming press event, but famed KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo might offer them some reassurance. According to him, while the MacBook Pros will indeed use UBS-C ports only for power, they might also include a "MagSafe-like" adapter.

Hated MacBook? The new MacBook Pro will make you howl

Apple's MacBook Pro is long overdue a refresh, but the hotly-anticipated update could bring pain to those unready to embrace new connectors.

How Apple’s next MacBook Pro could be the most flexible laptop ever

Apple has been tipped to be speaking with Foxconn startup Sonder, a company which creates some of the strangest keyboards in the world. The keyboards Sonder makes don't look significantly different from Apple's current MacBook Pro and iMac offerings - just so long as their keys keep their standard characters. Sonder's big differentiator in keyboards is their ability to switch keys at a moment's notice using E-Ink technology.

Apple responds to Ireland tax allegations (plus a few Brexit facts)

Apple responds to Ireland tax allegations (plus a few Brexit facts)

Apple responds to allegations from the European Commission which suggested that the company was receiving illegal tax breaks from Ireland. In this letter, penned by Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company suggests that the EU is retroactively applying rules which should not apply to their taxation situation. Apple has their European base of operations in Ireland, having set that base up back in October of 1980, and has expanded throughout Ireland (and greater Europe) since. The European Commission suggests that Apple's way of paying taxes in Ireland is "illegal under EU state aid rules."

The Wolfe empowers Macs and MacBooks for gaming, VR

Laptops and notebooks are great for portable computing, but when you need the heavy artillery, you hare mostly out of luck. Unless you have one of those high performance gaming laptops that are so heavy and hot (literally) they might as well be desktops. Or you can back this Kickstarter almost ominously named the Wolfe, which gives Macs, MacBooks, or really any computer with a Thunderbolt 2 or 3 port, the graphics processing power to drive games as well as virtual reality experiences.

This desk changed my life

This desk changed my life

The following is an Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk Review - with a couple of Ergotron add-ons. Earlier this year it was apparent that my working situation was not going to be able to work any longer. I had neck pain as well as upper and lower back pain from the less-than-optimal working conditions I was providing for myself. I decided to seek out the folks at Ergotron to take some of their products out for a spin. I told them my situation and we decided that it'd make sense for me to test out several items: the WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk, Neo-Flex Underdesk Keyboard Arm, and the LX Dual Side-by-Side Arm for monitors.
