  • Monitor Roundup: The best external displays to use with your Mac

    I wish there were more smaller hiDPI displays available - after owning two 27" iMacs and a 21.5", I prefer the latter, especially with the availability of 4K resolution now. Unfortunately, the only 4k display at that size is the LG sold only by Apple, and it's a bit of an odd duck, since it's USB-C rather than Thunderbolt 3. On top of the lack of a FaceTime camera, there's the bewildering decision to put USB-C ports on the 4K display that only run at USB2 speed - anything that isn't hamstrung by the speed (Wacom tablets, keyboards, etc) would still need a USB-A to USB-C adapter, for which you get no benefit at all; should have just put USB-A ports on it.

  • NBC's cash-strapped 'Breaking News' app & social media feeds to shut down this week

    The abject ignorance being exhibited here is galling, and obviously comes from people who have never actually used the app (and one who apparently used to, but made an incorrect assumption after the NBC purchase).

    As the story states, the most recent reviews on the App Store are mourning the loss of the app because it pulled from many sources around the world, and didn't editorialize at all. It didn't just link to NBC after the purchase - how could it, when it was literally a Breaking News app? NBC didn't break every story domestically, let alone world-wide, so relying on NBC wouldn't have made sense.

    I will certainly miss it, as it was a consistent source of world-wide news that I otherwise would not have seen.

  • Class action suit accuses Apple of selling Macs without needed dust filters

    I had this happen with both a 2009 27" and a 2014 5k, fortunately had AppleCare on both. Happened in two completely environments, neither dirty.
