Hebrew Voice Of Siri Sues Apple For Using Her Voice Without Permission

There are a variety of voice options for users to choose from when it comes to Siri.

Steam To Drop Support For macOS 10.10 Yosemite In 2019

For the most part just like iOS devices, Apple’s macOS devices tend to be pretty well supported. For example my 7-year old 2011 MacBook Air has been on the receiving end of major OS updates right up until macOS High Sierra, which was the last major update my laptop was capable of receiving. That’s a pretty long period of time for support.


Microsoft Office Update For macOS Introduces Dark Mode

A couple of months ago, Microsoft announced that the upcoming update to their Office suite of productivity apps on macOS would soon gain support for dark mode, which is one of the features of macOS Mojave.

Latest macOS Update Hints At AMD Vega GPUs Coming To More Macs

Last month Apple officially released their MacBook Pros that used AMD’s new Vega GPUs. At the moment these are the only Mac computers that are using it.

Chrome’s Dark Mode For macOS Will Arrive Early 2019

One of the features of Apple’s macOS Mojave update is that it introduces support for dark mode. This means that when applied, some apps will take on a darker theme that might be easier on the eyes when used in a low-light setting. Unfortunately this isn’t applicable across all apps as developers will need to support the feature as well.


Apple’s CEO Says There Is No Place For Hate On Their Platform

Social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have come under fire the past few years for apparently not doing much to curb hate speech from making their rounds. There have been instances where it took these platforms longer than they should to remove such content, and Apple wants you to know that they do not stand for it.


How To Force Quit Apps On Mac

From time to time, programs on a computer can suddenly stop responding for no explicable reason. It can be hard to pinpoint a reason as to why a program stops responding as it could be due to a bug in the software; software and hardware conflict; a system/driver error; or maybe your computer simply does not have the resources to support the running of the program.


Evernote For iOS, macOS Gains Dark Mode Support

Dark mode is a useful feature in apps because it helps reduce the overall glare that you get from an otherwise mostly-white interface. Even Google has found that dark mode actually helps with battery life. The good news is that if you’re an Evernote user, it looks like dark mode has finally made its way onto the iOS and macOS version of the app.


Microsoft Office For macOS To Get A Dark Mode

The concept of dark and light themes aren’t exactly new and we have seen that applied to websites and apps in the past, although in recent times, it seems that there is a greater call/demand for such features. macOS Mojave introduced a dark mode which is applied across the OS and native Apple apps, but it did not necessarily apply to third-party apps.


Luna Display Converts Your iPad Into A Second Display For Your Mac

Given the size of the largest iPad Pro, it’s not surprising that more people are starting to think of these tablets as potential laptop replacements (depending on your needs). Their size also means that they are great to double up as a secondary display, especially if you work outside with a Mac laptop.


Group FaceTime Spotted In macOS 10.14.1 Public Beta

One of the features that Apple finally introduced in iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 Mojave is group FaceTime.

It was unclear what the reason was for the delay, but it seems that we could be back on track.


Google Working On Dark Mode For Chrome, But Only For macOS

Dark mode is something that we’re starting to see more these days as options within apps and services. For example YouTube has a dark mode for both the desktop and mobile app, and now it looks like Google Chrome could soon be getting the same treatment. However the catch is that for now, it appears that dark mode for Chrome could be a macOS-only feature.


New CSS Attack Freezes Macs And Restarts iPhones

A newly discovered attach will cause a Mac to freeze and an iPhone to restart if the device visits a webpage with specific CSS & HTML. This bug doesn’t affect Windows and Linux users so it’s something that iOS and macOS users only have to keep an eye out for. It was discovered by Sabri Haddouche who is a security researcher at encrypted messaging app developer Wire.


Apple Takes Down Some Of Trend Micro’s Apps For Mac

When you install a security app on your computer, chances are you are trusting that it will keep your information safe from malware, hacks, and busybodies. So you can imagine the irony when it was discovered that some of Trend Micro’s apps were actually doing the opposite, where it was found that some of the company’s apps were actually storing and exporting the browser history of its users.
