Your old 2012 MacBook Pro will soon be officially “obsolete”

Apple will soon move another MacBook to the official "obsolete" list, a list where old Apple products go out to pasture. Once a device has been added to the obsolete list, Apple no longer offers support at their official Apple Store repair desk. Older devices that'll soon be moved to the list of obsolete hardware can still be fixed now - until that day comes.

Apple OSX support cut for SteamVR; Windows and Linux remain

This week Valve made clear they're not in a position where it makes sense to continue supporting Apple's OSX for their SteamVR platform at this time. They've suggested that the SteamVR platform will continue to receive support, but all support will be focused on Windows and Linux.

This Photoshop CC update is radical, and I can’t wait

This Photoshop CC update is radical, and I can’t wait

Photoshop CC's most magical feature is about to get a big update. That's Content-Aware Fill, and it is easily the most important feature added to the software in the past half-decade. I use this feature constantly - especially when it comes to editing photos of gear for review. (Gotta get that dust and hair out of there before it hits the home screen.) Now it's getting much, much more versatile.

Adobe patches Creative Cloud bug that was deleting Mac data

Over the weekend, a very nasty bug hit the Mac version of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. Bugs that cause constant app crashes are annoying, and can drive a person mad after a while. However, when your software starts deleting files that you've spent minutes or even hours crafting, it's a serious issue. And that's exactly what started happening to users.

FF XIV for Macs pulled from sales, lengthy apology issued

Square Enix may have just launched its biggest update to Final Fantasy XIV, but what could have been an almost perfect release has been marred by performance issues on a single platform: Macs. Now while this may sound almost like the situation with Warner Bros. and Batman: Arkham Knight for PCs, Square Enix is doing something differently and, to its credit, perhaps more satisfying. Producer Naoki Yoshida has provided a rather detailed account of the blunder that happened and, unusual in this business, has taken sole responsibility for the fiasco.

Hack puts OS X Yosemite on a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2

Macs and OS X have a reputation of being the preferred hardware and platform of designers, but quite ironically, there is not a single official Apple computer that comes with an integrated Wacom display. Perhaps Apple considers it unnecessary because Wacom's Cintiq displays work perfectly with Macs anyway. But there is still a class of people that want to get the best of both worlds, like this latest hack that puts Apple's latest operating system inside a Cintiq Companion 2 tablet, though not everything is fine and dandy just yet.

North Korea’s Red Star Linux goes for a Mac OS X look

North Korea’s Red Star Linux goes for a Mac OS X look

It seems that even the somewhat "traditional" North Korean tech aesthetics is getting an update. Thanks to a former lecturer at Pyongyang, we are getting a glimpse of what the officially sanctioned operating system of North Korea, Red Star Linux, now looks like, almost half a decade since the OS was first leaked outside the secretive regime. Apparently, like the rest of the tech world, the Linux-based OS has moved away from a Windows 7, nay Window XP even, look towards a more stylish OS X.

“Unprecendented” new strain of iOS, OSX malware discovered

Just when you thought only Windows received the bulk of horrifying viruses and crapware, here comes WireLurker, a new family of malware, not even just a single one, that targets both Apple's desktop and mobile platforms for maximum reach. Palo Alto Networks, the cybersecurity company that discovered and reported this situation calls this an "unprecedented" type of malware, at least as far as iOS and OS X are concerned, hinting at the developing, or rather worsening, situation when it comes to malware and hackers' abilities to infiltrate our computers.
