The era of Macintosh Malaise is what I call the period from 2012 – 2019, and includes many of the Mac computers sold during this time period. The following is a list of what I call Carson’s Compromised Macs.
It was 20 years ago that the entire world was bracing for what was supposed to be one of the biggest disasters in the history of the world. Now we face another bug that could bring your Mac to its knees.
Sad. Disappointed. Frustrated. Those are the words I would use to describe my feelings about “Throttlegate”, the recent revelation that Apple has indeed been slowing down older iPhones that have worn batteries.
Twenty years ago today, Dan Knight began an odyssey. Using a Macintosh Centris 610 and Claris Home Page, he set out to make it easier to support low end Macs. Little did he know, April 7th, 1997 was a day that would change his life and the Mac Web forever.
What happens when an iPad Air and iPad Air 2 have a baby? You get the new iPad. The new 9.7” iPad that Apple recently released is a product that I am happy Apple has released. Even though I don’t agree with many of Apple’s recent decisions (including the discontinuation of the 32 GB iPad mini), […]
Today’s Mac computers are amazing. They’re sleek, slim, extremely powerful, and filled with features like iCloud, AirPlay mirroring, Notification Center, and so on.

One of the things that we computer nerds have always loved is tinkering with our machines. We have always enjoyed opening up our computers and expanding their capabilities. Unfortunately for us, the expandability of modern Macs ranges from limited to nonexistent.
Apple has created a lot of successful products in its time, but they haven’t always hit home runs. Today we’re looking back at machines that many of you will remember, some of you won’t, and those that do would probably rather forget: the x200 series.
Remember the old days, back when Apple used names for its computers? Well I sure do, and I have a lot of fond memories of machines with names such as Performa, Centris, and Quadra. Sure the names were meaningless, but it made the machines sound that much more important.
What happens when you take a MacBook Air’s logic board, a 2012 MacBook Pro’s hard drive, and shove them into an iMac’s case? You have a modern day Mac Classic without the charm and without the sub-$1,000 price. You’d also get a lot of people like me asking, Why?
