Oculus Rift: Another example of the Mac's gaming deficit

Oculus Rift: Another example of the Mac's gaming deficit

Surprised Oculus punted on Mac support? You shouldn't be. The Mac has a huge gaming deficit. And it's getting worse.

Last week Oculus VR chief architect Atman Binstock said that the company put the brakes on Mac and Linux development in favor of focusing on Windows. Oculus is the maker of the Rift, a forthcoming VR headset expected to ship in the first calendar quarter of 2016.

Oculus is focusing on Windows initially for the same reason that legendary thief Willie Sutton supposedly targeted banks: Because that's where the money is. But this underscores an important point. OS X has always been at a disadvantage compared to Windows when it comes to gaming, and efforts like this underscore just how much of a disadvantage Macs continue to have against Windows PCs.

On the Apple Watch and Morse code

On the Apple Watch and Morse code

We communicated across wires in dits and dahs, once. Why can't we use it to communicate across Apple Watches?

When I first learned you could transmit taps on the Apple Watch, I immediately started to wonder about its potential as a device for sending Morse code. My grandfather was (and my dad still is) a longtime ham radio operator, and while I never learned Morse to either of their satisfaction, I've always had a fascination with the dots and dashes of years past.

After spending some initial time with it, I'll admit: The Apple Watch isn't a perfect device for communicating in Morse code. The taps you can send are limited to short "dit" buzzes, with no proper way to send the lengthier dash "dah". But I still love the idea of using tap-based communication — and it makes a whole lot more sense to me to try playing with Morse's pre-established taptic language over trying to re-invent the wheel, so to speak.

President Obama's first personal tweet sent from his iPhone

President Obama's first personal tweet sent from his iPhone

U.S. President Barack Obama just sent his first tweet, from his first personal account, and he did it from his iPhone.

The President's new account is as personal as anything named after an office can be — @potus, an acronym for President of the United States. But it's an account that will have tweets posted exclusively by the President, which is different than the long-running, team run, @BarackObama account. The interesting thing for all of us here, of course, isn't so much the first tweet as the first Twitter client: Twitter for iPhone.
