If you’ve ever had a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro’s battery disappear at random it can be a disconcerting feeling. This is often accompanied with the battery menu having an “X” through it and saying “No Batteries Available”, a very sluggish Mac, and even after a reboot or not the Mac will often have fans running at full speed despite nothing unusual showing up in Activity Monitor. To top it off, the MagSafe charger light typically is not lighting up, [Read More...]

Spreecast has been used by a bunch of big organizations and famous people â€” a few standout [Read More...]
Tickets to Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference have sold out quickly in recent years â€” last year it took less than two hours â€” and this year is likely to be no different. With that being the case, a lot of developers are going to miss out. But they’ll still be able to catch up on WWDC sessions, but Apple is posting all of the videos online.
This isn’t the first time the [Read More...]
You’ll have to think pretty different to enjoy this movie.
The time has come. Funny or Die’s Steve Jobs mockumentary featuring Justin Long has arrived. iSteve is available for streaming in non-Apple-friendly-Flash on Funny or Die’s website. The “biopic” lasts about 80 minutes.
