The concept of scalping is buying high demand items and then flipping them for a huge markup. This is based on the extremely high demand for certain items that are either difficult to get or are limited in nature. This is the case for the Sony PS5 in which Sony is struggling to try and meet the demand of the market right now, creating a space for scalpers.
If you own an Apple Watch, did you know that you can actually use the Apple Watch as a secondary display for your phone’s camera? This means that if you’re trying to take a group photo using the back cameras and not the selfie camera, you can use the Apple Watch’s display to frame your shot and trigger the shutter remotely.
The Apple Watch can read our heart rates continuously throughout the day. This is useful to try and gauge your overall heart health. Now it seems that Apple wants to expand on the Apple Watch’s health monitoring features as thanks to a patent discovered by AppleInsider, it seems that the company is now looking at the potential of continuous blood pressure monitoring.
From what we can tell, Apple’s ambitions for pressure-sensitive displays on their mobile devices are pretty much dead, even when it comes to wearables like the Apple Watch where it first debuted. However, it could possibly continue to live on in Apple’s computing devices like the MacBook Pro.
The graphics in our video games these days are getting better and more realistic, where at a glance, they could be easily mistaken for the real thing. This is what happened to a new station in Oregon where they were sent in a photo from Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 and uploaded it thinking it was real.
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that in 2021, Apple could finally introduce redesigned MacBook laptops. It was speculated that this would be the M1 (or M2) based MacBooks, but it turns out it will also apply to Intel based MacBooks. This is according to @L0vetodream who has in the past been pretty accurate with their leaks.
Apple had not too long ago expressed their willingness to allow game streaming services on their mobile devices, but there was a caveat in which they also required developers to submit their games to the App Store if it were also available on the game streaming service. Apple claims that this is so that they can review the games to ensure it abides by their terms and conditions.
One of the chief criticisms that we saw when Apple launched the M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro is that while the innards have changed, externally, they’re still the same. It’s not necessarily a bad thing that Apple has kept the design since it works rather well, but at the same time, many expected Apple to come up with something new for its new chipsets.
In the past, we’ve come across many patent troll related lawsuits, where a company that owns a patent that is vaguely similar to a technology or product used by another company will sue that company over alleged infringement. The goal is to try and get these companies to quickly settle the matter instead of fighting a long and drawn out court battle.
If you are having a tough time getting your hands on Sony’s PS5 console, then you have scalpers to blame. This is because according to a report from Business Insider, it appears that a UK based scalper group calling themselves CrepChiefNotify have managed to nab as many as 3,500 units in total and are reselling them at premium prices.
According to the official specs listed by Apple, Apple’s new M1 powered Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro will only support anywhere between 1-2 external displays. This is versus the Intel-powered variants that can support more, but is the limit of 1-2 displays true? It turns out not really.
In order to help deal with the lack of native apps, Apple allows macOS Big Sur users on its M1 computers to run iPhone and iPad apps. While it might not necessarily be optimized for a laptop’s dimensions and UI, the idea is that it will bring about functionality and usability until more native apps arrive for the M1 chipset.
When it comes to financial services, obviously these companies are here to do business and there is no such thing as a free lunch. However, for those who have been using Google Pay to make instant transfers, you will now have to look forward to paying a 1.5% fee (minimum of 31 cents) per transaction.
With Apple’s new M1 Mac computers, users can choose between 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Now obviously RAM plays a role in determining the performance of a computer, but the question is, is it worth spending that extra $200 to upgrade from 8GB to 16GB? In a video uploaded by Max Tech, he shows the difference between the two RAM configurations on the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
