The Real World 12″ MacBook Review for Power Users

Apple’s all-new MacBook has been reinvented in a compact 12-inch form factor that closely resembles an iPad Pro at first glance.

Magic Mouse 2: Why I Love It

We’re taking the Apple Magic Mouse 2 for a spin with a review from a mouse lover (not that kind!). Pointing devices have come a long way since the one- or two-button clunkers of the 1970s and 80s.

No New Microsoft Office For Mac?

I like Microsoft Office. Don’t hate me just yet. I like it better, more times than not, than iWork and OpenOffice. As the months have rolled on from Microsoft releasing Office 2013 for Windows, Redmond has decided to give our aging Office 2011 a little love.

Colloquy For iOS Makes You Love IRC Again

I have been a avid daily user of Internet Relay Chat (IRC) since the 1990s. Back then, we didn’t have words like “Googling” in the dictionary, and sending a “tweet” was reserved for the birds (literally).
