These goggles could change your mind about cheap VR [Reviews]

Apple hasn’t shown much enthusiasm for diving into virtual reality in the past, but all signs are pointing to a renewed interest.

Facebook videos are about to get extremely intelligent

Facebook is upping its game with video.  Soon, Facebook will be able to automatically identify friends in videos and tag them. Better yet, it’ll store this information so when you want to find that moment again, you could find the video by searching for your friend’s name and then jump straight to when they appear […]

Should Android makers really be worried about iPhone SE? [Friday Night Fights]

The iPhone SE is finally starting to sell out after making its official debut last week, greeted by glowing reviews from fans and critics. It’s the best 4-inch phone money can buy, but is it enough to win over the millions of consumers buying affordable Androids? It certainly has the looks, and with the same internals […]

Apple veteran Bill Atkinson talks about the early days of Macintosh

I’m a sucker for hearing ex-Apple employees talk about the company’s early days. In particular, it’s fascinating to find out more about the development of innovations like MacPaint and the Mac graphical interface, as well as speculate over who was really responsible for the Macintosh’s creation. On this week’s episode of the Triangulation podcast, tech broadcaster Leo Laporte interviews […]

Here’s how Steve Jobs answered a question about government snooping in 1981

Waze will now nag you about how fast you’re driving

We expect navigation apps to warn us about gridlock, give us the best routes, and tell us how long our drives will be. But Waze is rolling out a new speed-limits feature that, while useful, might come off as a pain at first. The crowdsourced traffic app now includes limits information for thousands of roads, […]

Apple is making a TV show about apps with Will.i.am

The next piece of original video content coming out of Cupertino is going to look more like a big iPhone ad than a TV show. Apple revealed today that is working with Black Eyed Peas singer and failed tech visionary Will.i.am to create a new unscripted TV series that’s all about apps. Also joining the […]

What Apple product launches say about Tim Cook’s leadership

A cynic would call it greenwashing, but the most surprising thing about Tim Cook’s “Loop you in” event was what it said about how he’s running Apple. When Steve Jobs was around, Apple’s product events were about the products, and little else. Yeah, Jobs would often start with corporate issues, but he usually boasted about […]

Apple Music is about to become the music service for EDM fans

If you’re a fan of EDM (that’s “electronic dance music” for the older Cult of Mac readers out there!), Apple Music is about to become your best option for streaming music — courtesy of a new deal Apple has signed that will let it bring thousands of rare DJ mash-ups, remixes, and mixtapes to its […]
