Macstock Conference & Expo and MacBBQ come to the heartland this June

If you're within range of Woodstock, IL and interested in learning and talking with other Mac users, check out Macstock. And if you have time, come to the MacBBQ too!

Midwesterners don't get too many Mac events to call their own, so it's fortuitous that Macstock is happening. It's a one-day event scheduled for June 20, 2015 from 8:00 to 3:00 PM, taking place at McHenry County College just outside of Woodstock, IL (hence the "Macstock" name).

How to send animated and standard emoji on the Apple Watch

How to send animated and standard emoji on the Apple Watch

The Apple Watch brings a brand new set of animated emoji for you to share with others.

Though your Apple Watch has access to the same standard emoji that are available on the iPhone, it also offers special animated emoji via the Messages app. Since the Watch is designed for quick communication, sending an appropriate face or hand signal is sometimes much easier than dictating a message if the quick reply response you want isn't available. Even better, if the person on the receiving end doesn't have an Apple Watch, they'll still be able to receive animated emojis. And if you decide you'd rather just send a regular old emoji, you can do that too!

MacKeeper has critical security flaw, says researcher

A security researcher has discovered a critical problem with MacKeeper, the controversial software for the Mac.

I've already said my piece about MacKeeper — I don't think Mac users need it, and the developer's aggressive marketing tactics leave a bad taste in my mouth. If you need more evidence that you should stay away from it, MacKeeper is now the target of a new zero-day vulnerability security advisory.

NSFW: Apple's benign neglect of the Mac App Store

NSFW: Apple's benign neglect of the Mac App Store

A new Mac app shot to the top of the App Store charts by selling fewer than 100 copies. What does that say about the state of the Mac App Store?

Sam Soffes recently released Redacted, a $4.99 Mac app that makes it easy for you to pixelate, blur, or add black bars to images. If you already have an image editing app that does this, it's no big deal, but it's a handy utility for people who need that capability and nothing more.

I doubt Soffes was expecting to burn up the Mac App Store charts when he released it. But that's exactly what happened.

Best Apple Watch apps for hitting the gym!

The Apple Watch is a great workout companion at the gym, especially when paired with the right apps.

While an iPhone stocked with fitness apps has always been a decent gym companion, having to hold it during a workout when accessing information can often be inconvenient — especially since most exercises require two hands. But thanks to the Apple Watch, it's easier than ever to track and manage workouts right from your wrist. Whether you're learning new yoga poses, trying to bulk up and need to count and track reps, or just need a great interval timer, there's something for everyone.

These are currently our favorite Apple Watch apps when it comes time to hit the gym!
