  • Three days with Apple's new Mac Pro: incredible speed that will accelerate with time

    If I had a nickel for every time I have heard "and it will get faster" when programmers do something…over the last 30 years.  Heck, I'd be happy if touch ID would just work everywhere the System asks for a password.

  • Apple to face class action over MacBook butterfly keyboard

    Have a 2016 MBPro. Never had a problem with keyboard previously and I take care of my laptops. Regularly dust aand vacuum it. Occasionally you get a sticky key that sometimes gets better with vacuuming or blowing it oout. However, keyboard is repeating on a's and some o's, which is extremely annoying. I'd take it in for a keyboard replacement, but think I will just hold out a little longer and trade in for a 16". This is the most trouble I've ever had with an Apple laptop. I like the keyboard, just not the lack of longevity, and the difficult replacement.

  • The best alternatives to Adobe InDesign for iOS and Mac

    One thing you *do* give up and will definitely miss if you used ID and switch to Affinity is automation. It has none, at this time. And if you do a lot of page layout with repetitive tasks, you will miss this even more.

  • Mac page design app Affinity Publisher comes out of beta

    For me, the big omission in this release is the fact that there is no automation. No applescript support, no javascript. Where page layout programs like Indesign can really save you time is when you can automate the process by scripting… Hope they get around to this soon. Who wants to keep doing repetitive tasks over and over manually? "Nobody"
