Steve Sande’s hands-on review of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro

4 hours 13 minutes ago
Dennis Sellers and I decided that since we both had experience with the earlier iterations of the iPad Pro that we’d write separate reviews of the new 12.9-inch version. Both of us have the Smart Keyboard Folio, cellular+Wi-Fi, and seemingly have the same goal in mind — be able to use the iPad Pro as our “laptop” of choice.

360Audio 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound Earbuds: “Designed to sound like a full home theater system”

4 hours 13 minutes ago
Let’s face it; no matter how good the earbuds or earphones, they just can’t compete with a surround sound system like you find with a home theater system. That’s all changing with the new 360Audio 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound Earbuds ($64.99), bringing that home theater experience to earphones with new technology that reproduces sound the precise way it was created.

Dennis’ take on the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro

5 hours 13 minutes ago
When Apple hyped the 2018 iPad Pro as a computer that has outsold almost all other laptops, the company begged reviewers to test drive it as a notebook replacement. Is it? For many people, yes, but for a lot of folks, no, it’s not likely to kick your MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro to the curb.

The first time you use your Apple Pencil 2, you’ll need to pair it with your iPad Pro. If you have an iPad Pro 11-inch or iPad Pro 12.9-inch (third generation), attach the Pencil to the magnetic connector on the side of the tablet.

Review: Vinpok Split 15.6-inch USB-C Touch Screen Monitor

1 day ago
Compared to a few years ago when Apple started building Macs with USB-C ports, there are a ton of USB-C accessories available now. One unique accessory I recently saw on Indiegogo was the Vinpok Split, a very thin and light USB-C 15.6-inch touchscreen monitor for use with USB-C laptops like the MacBook line. In this review, I take a look at this lightweight portable monitor — and you can still get a deal on it as a “super early bird” backer of the campaign for just $199.

How to make your hard drive icons show up in macOS Mojave

1 day 6 hours ago
Apple apparently thinks that you’d prefer not to see the icons for your Mac’s built-in hard drive or those of any external drives on the desktop of macOS Mojave (and most of its predecessors). However, I want those icons on my desktop. Here’s how to make ‘em visible:

Thank you, veterans

We’ll take a moment from the regular flow of news and reviews to honor those who have served in our armed forces over the years. "If ever proof were needed that we fought for a cause and not for conquest, it could be found in these cemeteries. Here was our only conquest: all we asked was enough soil in which to bury our gallant dead." ~General Mark W. Clark. These words are inscribed on a wall at the Visitors Center at the American Cemetary in Normandy, France.
