Confessions of a former gamer

Maddy Myers' recent column for iMore, A salute to iOS gamers, or how to stop intimidating your non-gamer friends, comes at an interesting time. Because it's an issue I've been wrestling with myself for quite some time. For almost a decade, I wrote a column for Macworld magazine called "The Game...

NSFW: Why Mark Zuckerberg needs to shut up about Apple

NSFW is a weekly op-ed column in which I talk about whatever's on my mind. Sometimes it'll have something to do with the technology we cover here on iMore; sometimes it'll be whatever pops into my head. Your questions, comments and observations are welcome. Mark Zuckerberg apparently thinks...

What 'MacKeeper' is and why you should avoid it

Literally every time I work in the computer store, we'll get a customer whose Mac is plagued with problems they don't understand: Their Mac is acting slow. It crashes. And more. And in more cases than not, we find that they've installed a program called MacKeeper. Removing MacKeeper fixes the...

NSFW: Imagining a new Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad

I'm an unabashed fan of mechanical keyboards, so you might assume that I don't like the new tech in the MacBook, but you'd be wrong. I love it. I want to see it everywhere, especially on the desktop. I'm smitten with two parts of the new MacBook: The keyboard and the new trackpad. I'd love to...

NSFW: Putting things in perspective

We're only a few hours into Apple Watch pre-order day, and already I want to put my fist through a wall. New Apple product releases have become a sadly predictable affair in watching people desperately trying to get their place in line, only to be disappointed when things don't go their way. I'm...

NSFW: For the love of old things

I like to surround myself with old Apple gear. There's something to be said for having a sense of history. I like to surround myself with older computer parts. The keyboard I'm writing these words on was manufactured 20 years ago. My last mouse lasted me nigh on a decade. When I have a few free...

The part of the Apple TV experience that really sucks

The Apple TV channel authorization experience is horrible, and it's all the content providers' fault. Setting up an Apple TV for basic streaming and iTunes access is ridiculously easy: Plug it in, turn it on, then hold your iPhone or iPad to the top of the Apple TV. The Apple TV copies Wi-Fi and...

NSFW: 'Power Users' need to shut up

I've had quite enough of "power users" who think they're too good for the new MacBook. I've been using a Mac for 30 years. I got my first one in 1985. I sell Macs on the weekends and write about them during the weekdays. I am, by any definition, a "power user." Yet I detest that term, and I...

NSFW: Don't throw out the Aperture baby with the bathwater

Just because Apple's pulling Aperture from the Mac App Store doesn't mean you have to pull it from your workflow. Apple sent out an email to Aperture owners this week reminding them that as soon as Photos for OS X goes into general distribution, Aperture will no longer be available for purchase...
Emotional terrorism and censorship

Emotional terrorism and censorship

Speaking up for yourself is hard enough. When others try to silence you through threats of violence and intimidation, what should be the appropriate response? A game developer announced plans this week to withdraw from exhibiting at the upcoming PAX East game conference in Boston, Mass. Giant...
