02/18/2014, It has always been something of a fantasy to think that Apple could one day release a MacBook laptop with touch controls, similar to what Microsoft has done with Windows 8 hybrid devices which has the ability to transform itself from a regular laptop, to a tablet of sorts. Maybe one day Apple might embrace such design, but in the meantime an Apple patent has revealed plans for something that […]
02/13/2014, When it comes to making a purchase decision, there are many factors taken into consideration, like price, design, features, and so on. Then there are some who take it even further by making their decision based on where the product is made, whether it is made by workers who are working in good conditions (e.g. not sweat shop workers or mistreated workers), and also if there are conflict minerals being […]
01/22/2014, When you have the undivided attention of one of the richest man in the world, who also happens to be an outstanding philanthropist as well as the co-founder of a company called Microsoft, the last thing you want to do is commit a faux pas. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon did. Gates was on the show to talk about his various philanthropic activities, notably the […]
01/17/2014, When it comes to geeks and their computers as well as mobile devices and personal electronics, I guess there is just one way of putting it – you can never have enough power ports or battery life! Having said that, working with a notebook is cool, especially when you are not limited to the confines of an office. The thing is, notebooks do run on battery power, and battery power […]
01/09/2014, Are iPhones considered to be gateway devices to other Apple products? There’s an argument to be made for that but as it stands, it seems that thanks to a recent study conducted by Forrester Research, they have found that Apple products account for about 8% of global business and government spending in 2012, but expects that those numbers should hit 11% come 2015. Interestingly enough, the study did not mention […]
12/18/2013, One of the ways we would be able to tell that our webcams are active, regardless whether used as a microphone or as a webcam, would be a light on the device that basically lets us know that it is on. Unfortunately it would seem as though there are ways to go around disabling that, as researchers from the John Hopkins University have shared in which they demonstrated how hackers […]
10/11/2013, Apple was rumored to introduce a new MacBook Air at this year’s WWDC, and introduce a new MacBook Air is exactly what the company did. It looks like the MacBook Air 2013 will soon be out with the old as a new report indicates Apple might be considering offering a redesigned MacBook Air sometime in 2014.
07/31/2013, Let’s face it, while the MacBook Air is certainly a decent computer that is fast and portable, it can hardly be called a gaming machine. In fact running Diablo 3 on it saw temperatures on my computer shoot up to 90C! Well at the same when there’s a will, there’s a way, right? It seems that one particular MacBook Air owner decided to see if it would be possible to […]
07/29/2013, Another day, another bug. It has only been a little over one month since Apple released the 2013 MacBook Air at Worldwide Developers Conference. The refreshed lineup doesn’t come with any major design changes, but it does come with Intel’s all new Haswell processors. Users have reported a couple of bugs in the past as well, some complained that their new MacBook Air would repeatedly and unexpectedly drop the Wi-Fi […]
07/25/2013, There have been many reports recently that consumers are shifting away from conventional computers such as desktops and laptops towards tablets. The market is said to be in a steady decline. However, according to a new Digitimes report, Apple may end of moving four million MacBook units in this particular quarter. What’s baffling about this report is that in the same quarter last year, Apple managed to move four million […]
07/18/2013, Being a student is definitely fun – you are young, full of fresh energy and ideas, and not only that, most places that you go out tend to have this thing called “student discounts”, and it would certainly lighten the load on your wallet (and subsequently, your parents’ bank accounts, too) in the long run – at least for the few years that you are at higher learning institutions trying […]
07/18/2013, It was near the end of last month when Apple acknowledged that their MacBook Air 2013 model does indeed suffer from Wi-Fi connectivity issues, and right before July came about, we were informed that a certain update to fix this niggling and irritating issue is being tested by Apple, with selected users invited to jump aboard the testing bandwagon, too. I guess it is with a huge sigh of relief […]
07/14/2013, A number of 2013 MacBook Air users are complaining that volume fluctuates on its own when they're watching videos. This issue is likely to be fixed through a software update.
06/30/2013, Apple is testing the 'MacBook Air WiFi Update 1.0.' It has also invited a select group of users to do tests and provide feedback on this update.
