  • Apple rolls out first public beta of macOS 10.14 Mojave

    I am tempted to try this, I mean there isn’t much super intreasting in this release but I really wanna try goth mode but I don’t know if the beta’ishness of this release is worth it.
  • New 5K iMac GPU configurations at least double best performance of MacBook Pro

    No build to order GPU upgrades on the highest iMac though! I got the highest option when I spec'ed my machine up and I am running the last gen with the 395x, hmm now I no longer have the newest model, but still not too shabby since I up spec'ed and have been rocking this for 18 months. 
  • AT&T, Verizon join firms pulling millions in ads from Google, YouTube over hate, terrorist...

    Isn't this just laziness on the advertisers part by not actually doing the work and specifying what content they want to market alongside and rather treating it to much as blanket advertising and sponsoring any video?

    I thought the whole point of this form of advertising is that you can target better than traditional advertising, but a lot of these companies don't seem to get that and just pour money into the system then complain when there advertising is linked to content they don't like.

    I watch a lot of youtube and it's a certain type of content, I see adverts for stuff that is just so irrelevant to me it's silly. I listen to a lot of metal and rock and I get a lot of adverts for pop music, surely it's just someone stupid doing the marketing assuming someone anyone watching music videos on youtube needs to see there advertisement...

    If this is not the case.. then this is simply the problem youtube needs to solve, better tools for targeting advertising so advertisements don't get linked to the wrong content. Also this would increase the value of their ad business so seems silly they wouldn't do this.

  • Rumor: Apple's new iPad Pros could debut next week, with or without an event

    I have a maxed iMac I bought at the end of 2015, it's a great machine and I am somewhat happy that they haven't upgraded it yet, since I shelled out so much for it and I waited and waited through a few revisions until I felt the time was right.... I am not sure if I bought a machine that was a little above what I needed, but then again.... I use this machine for everything, the screen is great, it's my TV in my room and it also games pretty well, I hooked it up to an Xbox controller and boot camp and the games play really well and certainly better than an Xbox 1 or PS 4 etc.... I've never done anything on the machine that was slow or I wished was somewhat different or had more power, although going around an electronics store today, it was crazy some of the nice windows machines out there that were a third of the cost!

    I have an iPhone and this iMac, I am now thinking of adding something portable, I don't want to fork out the expensive prices for an Apple laptop, when I have this iMac here, so am thinking an iPad Pro is a good choice, which is silly is I am mostly looking to use this in my own house, even likely mostly in the same room as the iMac, I find myself using my iPhone a lot in bed, or when sat in my room and I want something with a bigger screen to bridge the gap.

    What is kinda disappointing is the fact I have all this power in the iMac just sat there, it's a shame there isin't a device that I can use to stream all this processing power to something more portable, particularly as I said, I will be using it in a very close distance from the actual iMac.

    I have been waiting for this iPad update since I started thinking about this last year, it will be a bit disappointed if it's just a simple spec bump without an event, the tablet market is crowded, Apple could do with doing something a bit better here or dropping the prices a little bit.

    The 12 inch iPad pro is a beast, but I am not sure if it is a little big to hold, so i'm liking the idea of something a little bigger screen than the standard iPad, with smaller bazels, hope we see that! 
  • 'Hello again:' Apple sends invitations for event on Oct. 27, new MacBook Pros expected

    Hmmm I love Apple annoucements.... haha but I a really hope they don't annouce much in terms of iMac's.

    Hoping for just a spec bump this year. Just bought an iMac 27", i7, 32gb ram, 1tb ssd and 4gb 395x graphics and hoping it doesn't get anything that makes it outdated too quickly! Planning to keep this machine for 5 years +
