Apple's transition to its own processors: What to expect

Sat, 2020-06-13 13:00

Bizarre internet 'dot' glitch lets you watch ad-free YouTube vids and bypass paywalls

Fri, 2020-06-12 10:43

But they might not know this crazy trick: If you add an extra “dot” immediately after the “.com” but before the slash, you can avoid ads on YouTube and other videos and even bypass free article reading limits on many sites.

As first discovered by Redditor unicorn4sale, the trick has been proven to work on YouTube and several news sites that offer a limited number of free articles before throwing up a paywall.

How to open ancient Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents in macOS

Fri, 2020-06-12 07:00

Apple has put the Mac versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote through some major revisions over the years. Early versions gave way to the “iWork ’09” suite in 2009, a major update and technically numbered version 4.

Readers sometimes write in wondering how to extract documents they haven’t opened in years but never went through the ’09 update. Unfortunately, earlier versions of Pages are just obscure enough that they aren’t found in any of the major open-source and other software apps that can pick the lock on nearly every outdated format and all modern ones.
