At the Core: My iPad sketchbook dilemma

At the Core: My iPad sketchbook dilemma

This past weekend, I participated in the MIT Mystery Hunt, a delightfully zany three-day puzzle competition that asks its hunters to solve all manner of crosswords, ciphers, logic puzzles, rebuses, and more. Though my team expressly goes in with little interest in winning the hunt, it's a great...

New to the Mac? You have questions, we have answers

A lot of the customers I help at the store I work at on the weekends are new to the Mac platform. There are three main reasons they switch: They are tired of the problems they're having with Windows PCs, they have an iPhone or another Apple device that they're happy with, and they have friends,...

What we want to see from Apple in 2015

With 2015 right around the corner, there's lots we could wish for. We could wish for the moon—or at the very least, a hoverboard prototype to show up at CES 2015. But as much fun as it is to wildly speculate on pie-in-the-sky ideas, we're going to travel a bit closer to Earth for our 2015...

How to view websites on your Mac that require Internet Explorer (or a PC)

Once upon a time, the Mac and the Internet did not always get along. Long before Safari came along, Netscape and Internet Explorer were busy waging a war to define the future of browsing — a future that didn't often include the Mac.
