Switch to Mac: Virtual pilots and their HOTAS

Fun for PC switchers in this week's Switch to Mac: How well do PC joysticks work on the Mac?

Flight simulation has been a fascination of computer programmers since the earliest days of graphical user interfaces. Those invested in the hobby get expensive joysticks and throttle rigs — accessories that work just fine on the Mac.

Playing the waiting game with the new MacBook

Want a new MacBook? Be prepared to wait, because you can't just walk in to an Apple Store and walk out with one.

I can understand why demand has outstripped supply so radically for the Apple Watch: It's a brand new product category for Apple, and they're taking it cautiously. I'm less clear on why that's also the case for the new MacBook.

MacBook (2015) Review

For any MacBook owner who has ever looked longingly at an iPad, Apple has made your dreams a reality. For a price.

When The Terminator first arrives in our time, he's naked. The lesson to be drawn from that is this — you can have the future right here, right now, You just can't have anything extraneous along with it. So too, the new MacBook

Every few years Apple likes to redefine what it means to be a laptop. The company has done it with plastics and metals, and even with envelopes. Drives have come and gone and so have ports. With this latest MacBook, the first to bear just that simple name since 2011, even the constants of screen, keyboard, and trackpad have changed. They've gone Retina, butterfly, and Force Touch respectively. They've each of them once again become the state of the art. It's whether or not those changes ultimately benefit the customer that remains in question, or more accurately — what kind of customer? That's what this MacBook review seeks to find out.

MacBook vs. MacBook Pro vs. MacBook Air in pictures

The new MacBook sports not so much a radical redesign as a radical refinement.

Apple's new MacBook represents nothing more nor less than the next stage of evolution of the laptop, at least how Apple imagines it. With a 12-inch screen, it should be slightly smaller than both the 13-inch MacBooks Pro and Air, but it manages to be much smaller, thinner, and lighter, all while packing in a high-density Retina display.

How to set up and use Force Click on the Mac

The 2015 versions of the MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro come with Apple's all-new Force Touch Trackpad, and that comes with Force Click.

A Force Click lets you not only click like you would on a traditional, mechanical trackpad, but press harder to engage a second click, or a range of pressure-sensitive clicks. For example, click on an icon and then Force Click to get a QuickLook, or click on a word and then Force Click to get a dictionary definition. All of this comes enabled by default on the new MacBook and on the 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro but you can toggle it off or back on in System Preferences.
