    For anyone who creates music, BUY Logic it's a freaking steal for $200 bucks!
    It's an unbelievable deal. 
  • Avast antivirus harvested user data, then sold to Google, Microsoft

    Ohhh snap!!!

    That is why I don't download Avast or any freebies. I wondered if CCleaner does the same thing by selling the infos to 3rd parties?
    The "Freebies" aren't the only ones who do this.  the Paid companies often do the same thing.  this is usually hidden somewhere in the depths of the user agreement. 
  • Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro is built to blaze through pro workflows

    It’ll still be a massive shitpile of adapters on a regular desk. Hate this mentality of theirs. Is it really asking for too much to expect some actual USB, Ethernet or other kinds of ports to REDUCE the number of adapters?
    It does have a USB port.. It does have an Ethernet port, It has all those things in Thunderbolt 3 which means Apple can meet every person's needs including FireWire.  You don't need adapters. You can purchase a USB C to USB cable and you're good or purchase a USB C to Ethernet cable. Thunderbolt 3 with USB C port is the best thing Apple Did.
  • The Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro is well implemented, but serves no useful purpose

    The touch bar is a gimmick to try to appease/fool those who want a Mac version of a Surface or Surface Pro combing of an iPad/Touch Screen Mac.  I was surprised they didn't bring it to the wireless keyboard and until it's function is seen on a all Macs it's just a gimmick.  I will agree it is well implemented. 
  • Apple officially discontinues AirPort router product line, available while supplies last [...

    I highly recommend the Netgear Orbi. It is an absolutely fantastic wireless "mesh" router system and worth every penny. 
    It may be a great router but it suffers from he same thing most of these new ones do.. NO ETHERNET PORTS.  I live in a small apartment and I'm limited on my power plugs.  To plug in two things now instead of one (router plus ethernet hub), but if you opt for a standard router that looks like a a miniature helicopter, it takes up too much space.  Would love something in the form like an Orbi that has 4-5 ports on it!  Oh wait.. that's my Extreme!  My Extreme is fairly new granted not as fast as the Orbi, but it works and it's fast enough for me!  Mesh is more for people who have houses, who will run an ethernet bridge off one of the mesh routers, plugging it in where it's convenient and calling it a day.  otherwise the rest of us are stuck with a hideously big drone looking wireless router.  This was the beauty of the Airport.   I for one was hoping (and still have a slight bit of hope) that Apple was going to do a wireless router/NAS which they had in Time capsule but something a but something that could hold like 4/5 drives.  Now this is something I would love to see. 

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's not a better system.  They just don't find MY needs.
