It’s time for a new iMac, and here are 9 improvements we’d like to see

Thu, 2019-03-21 06:00

The current iMac design is positively ancient, by computer design standards. The 27-inch Retina iMac, with its slim design and 5K resolution, was launched in the fall of 2014. It was really only a small tweak on the existing “slim unibody” iMac that dates back to 2012, itself only a thinner version of the unibody iMac design that goes back to 2009.

The basic look and physical features of the iMac have barely changed in a decade.

It’s a testament to the elegance of the design that it’s still desirable after all that time, but it’s well past time for a change. This week, Apple updated the iMac line with new internal hardware, but it the design and features remain fundamentally unchanged.

Get a 128GB 9.7-inch iPad for the retail price of the 32GB model

Wed, 2019-03-20 15:02

Apple may have just released flashy new versions of the iPad mini and iPad Air, but there’s still nothing wrong with the regular ol’ 9.7-inch iPad. It’s the lowest-priced tablet in Apple’s current lineup, especially with a big $100 discount that Amazon is currently offering on the 128GB version with Wi-Fi. That discount drops the price down from $429 to $329, which is essentially the retail price of the entry-level 32GB model. That means you’re getting a lot more space for a reasonable price.

You can also find this deal at Walmart, where the space gray, silver, and gold models are all available for the same priceRemove non-product link.

Google’s Stadia service could shatter the barriers of Mac gaming

Wed, 2019-03-20 15:00

Did Google just save Mac gaming? The Mountain View company never mentioned Apple during the reveal of its Stadia game streaming service at the Game Developers Conference yesterday, but Stadia sounds all but tailor-made for Mac users. A service that let you stream games from a remote server straight to your browser! The ability to play the latest games without needing to invest in fancy eGPUs, graphics cards, and yes—even PCs! Even in 2019, so much of this still sounds like science fiction.

I love my Mac, but necessity compels me to keep a massive PC running at home so I can play graphically intensive games like The Division 2 or Devil May Cry 5 when they release. As we all know, many of these games never come to the Mac at all. If Stadia works as well as Google implies it will, I’ll never have to feel too guilty about using only a Mac for gaming ever again. Google itself would handle all the heavy lifting; all I would need is a browser.
