Apple’s laptops and computers in general are made out of aluminum. This is more or less the standard choice of materials for a lot of electronics these days, but according to a patent discovered by Patently Apple, it seems that Apple could be interested in exploring other materials, such as titanium.
With our smartphones and tablets being able to connect to the internet using cellular connectivity, we actually have to wonder why such a feature isn’t as widely-available in laptops. There are cellular-capable laptops, but oddly enough, they aren’t as common as one might think even though the benefits of such devices are pretty obvious.
Microsoft and Apple’s rivalry dates back decades, even though Microsoft did help Apple through a tough time when Microsoft’s then-CEO, Bill Gates, bought $150 million worth of non-voting shares of Apple, and also gave them free-access to use Microsoft Office on Apple’s Mac computers.
Apple’s MacBook laptop design has been kept more or less the same for several years now, and while it is a nice design, it would be good to see Apple shake things up a bit. We have been hearing rumors that a redesign could be on its way, and now a new report from Bloomberg has revealed a potential “new” feature.
When Apple brought Touch ID over to their Mac computers, many had rightfully figured that it was only a matter of time before Face ID was also introduced. After all, some of Apple’s Mac computers do come with built-in webcams, so why not fit the Face ID components under there as well, right?
We have been hearing rumors that Apple could be planning on redesigning its MacBook Pro, but what about the MacBook Air? Apart from changing up the bezels for the display, the laptop has still pretty much maintained the same design and form factor. That could change either later in the year or possibly 2022.
Intel is typically associated with PCs. The company’s processors are almost always the default choice whether it comes to custom builds or premade computers. However, in the recent years, we’ve actually seen AMD on the rise, plus there is also Apple’s new direction in which they will be ultimately ditching Intel’s processors for their own custom chipset.
The vast majority of laptops out there still use LCDs as their display of choice. There is a reason why, and that is because LCDs are cheaper to produce, especially at larger sizes. This isn’t to say that OLED laptops don’t exist, but LCD is still a much popular configuration. However, Samsung is hoping to change that, and then some.
If you happen to use Microsoft Edge as your browser of choice, you’ll be pleased to learn that Microsoft has recently issued an update to the browser. This update will introduce a new security feature where if it detects that you have a password that has been compromised, it will warn you about it.
Intel got very exciting for investors earlier this month when it announced that it managed to woo Pat Gelsinger to take on the position of CEO starting next month.Gelsinger has, in turn, managed to convince legendary chip designer Glenn Hilton to come out of retirement to work on a new CPU project. The news traveled fast going through Sina.com (in Chinese), but I spotted Ian Cutress’s article in English.If you’re […]
When it comes to PC cases, we’ve seen some pretty outlandish designs that aren’t necessarily practical, but they are pretty cool as a concept. However, we think that this might have taken the cake because the folks at RTKFT have teased what appears to be a pair of sneakers powered by NVIDIA’s RTX 3080 GPU while using some of NZXT’s PC components.
Ever since Apple has done away with Touch ID on its iPhones (for the most part), there have been multiple rumors suggesting that Apple could actually be looking to bring the tech back through an in-display sensor. If the rumors are to be believed, it could actually happen with the iPhone 13 this year.
Not a fan of Apple’s macOS operating system but like the new M1 hardware that accompanies it? Then maybe installing a different operating system could be the answer, and no, we’re not talking about Windows. Thanks to the team at Corellium, it appears that they have managed to get Linux up and running on the M1 powered Mac mini.
Samsung, just like Apple, makes their own mobile chipsets, which in turn are used to power their smartphones. Now it seems that Samsung could be following in Apple’s footsteps by launching a series of Exynos chipsets that could be used to power computers, similar to what Apple has done with the Apple Silicon.
The problem with laptop screens is that it forces us to look down. Also, given their size, there are a lot of times when we find ourselves having to adjust the angle of the screen to suit our sitting position. However, Microsoft is hoping to change that by creating a laptop display that can adjust itself automatically.
Thanks to the Rosetta 2 translation software, Apple’s M1-powered Macs can run x86 based software. Obviously having native software would be ideal, but at the same time, we suppose we’ll have to give developers more time to create native M1 apps. That being said, it seems that some are wasting no time in doing so.
If you want to disable the Windows 10 login screen so that you can startup your computer faster, here’s what you need to do.
Monitors come in varying refresh rates and they’re usually set to a particular refresh rate by default, but did you know that you can actually increase or decrease your monitor’s refresh rate?
For a while now, we have been hearing rumors that Apple could finally give the iMac a brand new design. While there’s nothing wrong with the new design, it does feel a bit dated, especially with the massive bezels and the huge chin at the bottom. The good news, for those who are a bit sick of this design, is that Apple will be making some drastic changes soon.
To help deal with the initial shortage of native apps developed for the M1 chipset, Apple has allowed users to install iOS apps on M1 Mac computers. Even though iOS apps aren’t necessarily optimized for laptops or computers, it still helps to fill a void, even if it is temporary.
