A look back at Apple's last 12-inch laptop

The new MacBook isn't Apple's first 12-inch laptop. Look back at Apple's last 12-incher. I'm really looking forward to the new MacBook for a whole host of reasons. The 12-inch Retina display is one of them. For Mac users of the current era, 12 inches sounds like an odd size — everything's either...

Hey Apple, Macs need less crappy webcams

Hey Apple, Macs need less crappy webcams

Apple needs to step up its game with the built-in FaceTime cameras in Macs. They suck. Apple laptops are popular with podcasters and video conferencers. Why do so many of us buy external cameras? Because the FaceTime camera built into the Mac is mediocre at best. I love my 15-inch Retina...

USB-C is a standard, and that means standard battery packs and displays for MacBooks!

USB-C is a standard, and that means standard battery packs and displays for MacBooks!

One of the benefits of Apple including USB-C on the new MacBook is that it's a standard connector. Since USB-C is also how the new MacBook will charge, that means any battery extender made for USB — as long as it's within the proper power range — will work just fine. The same holds true for...
Enough with this USB-C brouhaha

Enough with this USB-C brouhaha

Controversy surrounds Apple's decision to use USB-C in the new MacBook. Is it one interface to rule them all, or is it just another port we'll see on future Macs? Apple's glitzy new MacBook is a pretty amazing piece of engineering and design that polarizes Mac users more than anything I can...
