Why I played games as a guy: The power of the online pseudonym

Why I played games as a guy: The power of the online pseudonym

When I was in high school, I played CounterStrike as a guy.

A very specific guy, in fact — a friend of a friend who'd given me his Steam login information because he didn't use his account. I didn't even realize that I was logging hours on borrowed time; around 2006, the account's owner changed his password and locked me out for good. After all, it had never really been "my" account – and as far as the Steam gameplay records were concerned, I was never even the one playing.

At the time, this type of login exchange didn't seem so strange; digital game marketplaces were relatively new, and I was used to loaning my friends physical copies of games and systems. Now that I had to create a Steam account of my own, though, I ran up against a brand new problem: did I have to game as myself?

Activity app: Challenges and leaderboards please!

Activity app: Challenges and leaderboards please!

Health and fitness are their own reward... but there's nothing like shoving those rewards in the faces of your friends!

The Apple Watch has a built-in Activity app that tracks the calories you've burned, the brisk activity you've engaged in, and the frequency of your standing up and moving around. Do well and you're rewarded with an achievement. It's a great way to motivate people, and a type of gamification that feeds us the same sense of accomplishment we get when we solve a puzzle and make it to the next level. In classical terms, it's us against ourselves.

Some people, however, aren't as self-motivated or self-disciplined. Some people are competitive and they don't just want to do well — they want to do the best. That's where challenges come in.

iPad Air 2 review: Six months later

Apple's iPad Air 2 has been in our lives for six months now. Here's how it's faring.

We've had just over half a year to test and use Apple's latest iPad — to feel out if the company's tablet is settling in as a valued device in our lives, or just another paperweight. Here's what the iMore team had to say about the iPad Air 2, six months later.

Should you get a stylus for your Apple Watch?

Should you get a stylus for your Apple Watch?

No. You don't need a stylus for your Apple Watch.

Seriously, folks. I've had three different people email me to ask to do a roundup of the best styluses for Apple Watch since the device's launch, and all I can kind of do is shake my head.

NSFW: Learning and unlearning, Taptic panic

NSFW: Learning and unlearning, Taptic panic

Something interesting happened to me this past year: My Mac ceased to have any use for me as a document scanner. The iPhone took it over.

Now, in fairness, I don't do any really high-resolution scanning. For me scanning is pure utility: Needing to legibly digitize real-world documents. But it's an evolution. And so much of how we use our devices is about evolution.

How to create and manage alarms on Apple Watch

Alarms on your Apple Watch are separate from your iPhone alarms, but they can work together.

Just like your iPhone, your Apple Watch comes with a built-in Alarms app to keep you from missing — or sleeping through — anything important. The two can work together quite nicely, or you can choose to just use one device's Alarms app. Here's everything you need to know.

How's your Apple Watch battery life?

How's your Apple Watch battery life?

Apple said the Apple Watch should last you through the day — so is it?

The currency of mobile devices is battery life. Every feature from the lightness of the hardware to the brightness of the display to the data being transferred has a price paid for in power. Watches are even smaller than phones, which means they have less energy to begin with and have to pay even more attention to efficiency. That brings us to the Apple Watch and for some of us, the battery life we've experienced during our first full week of using it.

Six Apple Watch features we'd love to see on the next iPhone

Six Apple Watch features we'd love to see on the next iPhone

The Apple Watch is something new, and that means it's filled with fresh and interesting ideas — ideas that could be something great on the company's next iPhone.

Apple has been working on its smartphone for over a decade, and iterating on that work going on eight years. Come this fall, we'll almost certainly see a new generation of iPhone models — let's call them iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, to stick to pattern — with iOS 9 to go with them.

The Apple Watch, in contrast, has undergone related but distinct development for just about four years now. It's Apple's signature hardware — but wearable — and more importantly, it's iOS, rethought for the wrist. Jony Ive, Kevin Lynch, and the teams working on the Watch have come up with features that could be, with the proper translations, just as compelling in the hand with your iPhone. Here are our top six we'd love to see brought over from Watch OS to iOS this fall.
