Do you want to use your Windows Phone under macOS Sierra? You are in luck – there is now a fix.
Last week, Apple unveiled three new MacBook Pro models – an entry-level 13″ model with traditional function keys, a more powerful 13″ model with the new Touch Bar, and a 15″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. What kind of performance can we expect from the new models?
With the Late 2016 refresh, Apple has dropped the words “with Retina Display” from the names of its MacBook Pro models. Retina displays are standard across the board on all MacBooks. What’s new is the Touch Bar, which replaces the dedicated row of function keys that have been present on Mac notebooks since the 68040 […]
After a year and a half, Apple has finally updated the 13″ MacBook Pro, dropping “with Retina Display” from its name and finally discontinuing the last non-Retina 13″ MacBook Pro, which has been with us since April 2012.
After a year and a half, Apple has updated the 13″ MacBook Pro, dropping “with Retina Display” from its name and adding some new features – most notably the Touch Bar.
October 2016 – Yes, in moderation, beer is good for you. It can help you sleep better, increase bone density, help prevent kidney stones, and help you avoid diabetes and dementia, among other health benefits.
October 21, 2016 will go down as one of the biggest cyber-attacks in the history of the Internet – perhaps the biggest ever. We’re going to learn a lot from this one, and we need to be sure to take steps to avoid it happening again.
If you’ve been following the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 nightmare, you know it’s given Samsung a serious black eye. Kudos to Samsung for doing the right thing and recalling the entire production just weeks after its introduction.
Apple and Samsung have had an interesting relationship over the years. On the one hand, Apple buys a lot of components from Samsung Electronics. On the other, Samsung is a leading competitor in the mobile market. Some might call them frenemies, others see it as a symbiotic relationship.
The personal computing revolution started in 1974 with the 2 MHz Intel 8080, Intel’s first 8-bit CPU capable of addressing 64 KB of memory. (The earlier 8008 from 1972 could only address 16 KB.) But there was a parallel path, a new CPU family that Motorola launched in 1974.
Believe it or not, word processing predated the personal computer revolution by over a decade. In 1964, IBM combined its Selectric typewriter (1961) with a magnetic tape drive in the IBM MT/ST, making it possible for the first time to edit text without having to retype everything.
The personal computing revolution began with the Intel 8080 CPU. This 8-bit CPU was introduced in 1974 at 2 MHz and was the heart of the first kit computer, the MITS Altair 8800. But it was the far less costly 6502 CPU that drove the home computing market.
Mac users have had networking since 1984 using Apple’s 230.4 Kbps LocalTalk hardware and AppleTalk protocol. However, there was an older networking standard with roots at Xerox PARC (which also inspired the Mac’s look and feel) known as ethernet that was destined to become the networking standard.
The following collection of articles is adapted from postings by Scott L. Barber, an all around Mac geek, on our Quadlist email list circa 1998. Although a few of these are specific to 68040-based Macs, most have much wider application (or, at times, much narrower), and in some cases these look at technologies long since […]
