iPad-mini

Although you probably wouldn’t usually call it a PC, the iPad is a personal computer. And it’s currently dominating the PC market. During the fourth quarter of 2012, every one in six PCs sold was an iPad, according to research firm Canalys. When you include the Mac as well, more than a third of worldwide PC shipments during the holiday quarter were from Apple.

With tablets included, worldwide PC shipments increased 12%  [Read More...]

The iPhone 5′s been on sale for almost five months now, but there are still plenty of apps that have yet been updated to take advantage of its larger 4-inch display. They don’t get blown up automatically, either, so they sit in the middle of the screen and look silly.

As is often the case, a tweak is now available for jailbroken iPhones that solves that. Developed by  [Read More...]

Valentines-Day-Gift-Guide-App-Store

Struggling to find a gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day? If you get really desperate, you could always buy them something from the App Store. Seriously. That’s what Apple’s suggesting with its new Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, which features a collection of apps and games suited to music lovers, writers, photographers, foodies, and more.

I suppose gifting an app or game isn’t such a bad idea if you’re buying  [Read More...]

Even though Android has been dominating the smartphone marketshare, the tablet wars are a completely different story as the iPad is clearly the most popular device while all Android tablets are struggling to gain significant usage.

In a new report from the Chitika Ad Network, Apple’s iPad now accounts for 81% of U.S. tablet web traffic. The iPad is so far ahead of the Android tablets, that even if you combined the top  [Read More...]

BB-Z10-in-hand

BlackBerry — previously Research in Motion — launched the new BlackBerry Z10 last week, the first smartphone to run the company’s new BlackBerry 10 operating system. Originally set to launch in late 2012, the Z10 has been a long time coming for BlackBerry fans, and it’s a hugely important milestone for the Canadian company.

Many see this as BlackBerry’s last hope of survival in today’s cutthroat smartphone market. It’s been rapidly losing  [Read More...]

CoM - BluRay

After a day filled with productivity, there’s nothing quite like winding down with a good movie. It’s a time for you to escape, to dream, and to wonder about what’s possible in life – and in fiction. But if you’ve been looking for something to play Blu-ray technology on your Mac, you’ve probably been looking for a while – and without much success, either.

Thanks to Cult of Mac, you’ve  [Read More...]

alienblueappupdate

I could get lost in Reddit for days. It’s beautiful. It’s horrible. If it weren’t for Alien Blue my Reddit binging would be confined to my desktop, but alas, they make a hell of an app that feeds my addiction on the iPhone too.

To make things even better (or worse), Alien Blue just received a major update this week that makes browsing Reddit from your iPhone more alluring than ever. They’ve  [Read More...]

jollyfy-1

 

Some have the mad iPhone movie-making skillz of an Anderson or a Scorsese. Others, not so much. If you fall in the latter category, don’t worry — just jam some fancy graphics in there with the free Jollyfy app and you’re good to go.

It’s a pretty simple process. Fire up the app, pick a theme (the app’s App Store page says there are hundreds to choose from) and start shooting.

iOS6111beta

iOS 6.1 has only been available to the public for a couple of days, but Apple’s wasting no time getting some new bug fixes tested. Apple just seeded iOS 6.1.1 to developers. The update can be downloaded from Apple’s iOS Dev Center.

Right now it doesn’t look like there are many surprises in the iOS 6.1.1 beta for U.S. users as it mostly contains some improvements to Maps for Japan.

Here’s the notes  [Read More...]

hex-cabana

 

Back when I lived in SoCal, I was fixated with the coast. The sand, the surf, the sailboats. In fact, I often sailed out of Oxnard, a sleepy seaside burb just north of Los Angeles, which also happens to hide Mac-friendly bag-maker Hex.

Makes sense, then, that they’d launch the nautically themed Cabana collection, a heavily striped gathering of MacBook carriers and cases, and even an iPhone case. And nothing says  [Read More...]
