Should You Buy an Intel Mac or Wait?

Apple launched what very well may be the last Intel iMac this week, and while we haven’t had nearly enough time with it for a full review yet, early benchmark results reveal an absolute beast of a machine (even if our review unit is loaded with enough stuff to bring the price up to a whopping $4,500). If your old iMac…Read more...

Choice Finally Comes to 5G Laptops as Mediatek Start Making Modems

macOS 11.0 Big Sur preview

I honestly can’t remember when I first started writing about the mobile creep in macOS. It has happened little by little, update after update. My earlier fears that it would fully surrender to the influence of iOS have thus far not come to fruition, but the iPhone’s operating system continues to be the clearest indicator of future desktop updates. It’s clear, of course, why one of Apple’s OSes would   borrow so liberally from another. The iPhone has been top dog at the company for well over ...

Apple 27-inch iMac review

At its first virtual World Wide Developers Conference back in June, Apple unveiled a huge piece of news about the future of the Mac. After years of rumors, the company finally confirmed plans to wean itself off of Intel processors in favor of its own in-house ARM-based chips. Apple noted that the process would be a gradual one, taking around two years to transition the entire line. It was a rare peek behind the curtain for the company, owing to the fact that it needed to prep developers ahead...

Apple updates the iMac with new Intel processors and a better webcam (the verge)

Image: Apple Apple is announcing updates for both the 27-inch and 21.5-inch iMacs. It’s updating the processors inside to Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake processors and also switching out the webcam to a higher-resolution 1080p HD sensor instead of the low-res 720p found in other Macs.

Apple will start making its own chips to enable iPhone apps to run on future Mac computers. But developers say pulling that off may not be so easy. (AAPL)

Apple announced in June that it will start making its own chips for future Mac computers, enabling its laptops and desktops to run iPhone and iPad apps. But that will pose a challenge for Apple's iOS developers, who are used to creating apps centered on touch-based interactions and smaller screen sizes, developers say. Apple isn't the first to tackle the challenge of creating an app ecosystem that works seamlessly across mobile and desktop — Microsoft has made attempts at this as well. Overall...

Microsoft, Amazon back a SoCal company making microchips specifically for voice-based apps

Microsoft’s venture capital fund, M12 Ventures has led a slew of strategic corporate investors backing a new chip developer out of Southern California called Syntiant, which makes semiconductors for voice recognition and speech-based applications. “We started out to build a new type of processor for machine learning, and voice is our first application,” says Syntiant chief executive Kurt Busch. “We decided to build a chip for alwyas-on battery powered devices.” Those chips need a different...

Apple’s 27-inch iMac gets a processing and graphics boost

Apple sold a lot of Macs last quarter — a record, in fact, for Q3, jumping a full 21%, year over year. Given the state of the world, with most office workers moving to a remote setup, there’s little surprise the company’s desktop and laptops moved at such an impressive clip. For that reason alone, there’s probably no better time to offer a substantial refresh to the company’s perennial favorite all-in-one. This morning, Apple took the wraps off the latest version of its 27-inch iMac. The cha...

Apple sees growth in Mac and iPad sales owing to global work from home restrictions

Apple had a strong June quarter, and Mac and iPad sales, aided by the global shelter-in-place rules, were a major contributor: iPad revenue grew, sequentially, by over 50%, while revenue from Macs increased by over 30% in the same period. iPhone sales, meanwhile, grew marginally over last year, but fell down by as much as nearly 9% compared to the March quarter. The Services category, which had done really really well for Apple in the March quarter, more or less remained unaffected, as Apple loo...

This chart shows how a Microsoft acquisition of TikTok for $50 billion would stack up against tech's largest deals ever (MSFT)

Microsoft is in talks to purchase TikTok, the massively popular video app that's owned and operated by the Chinese company ByteDance. The purchase talks come amid threats from President Donald Trump to ban the app in the United States. Trump says the app funnels user information to the Chinese government, and must be operated by an American company to ensure the safety of user information. The cost to purchase TikTok could be as high as $50 billion, according to a recent valuation reported by...

“Made in America” is on (government) life support, and the prognosis isn’t good

Intel and Boeing, two of the pillars of American industry.

Buying Arm would give Nvidia firepower against rivals, but a merger would face intense 'regulatory and customer backlash,' analysts say (NVDA)

There's more speculation that Nvidia would buy Arm, with the Financial Times reporting on Friday that the chip giant plans to offer more than $32 billion for the chip design company. Such an acquisition would definitely expand Nvidia's reach in the semiconductor market, giving it more firepower against rivals Intel and AMD, veteran industry analysts told Business Insider. But such a deal would also face intense regulatory scrutiny, they said, and could hurt Arm's relationship with existing cus...

Big Tech's CEOs wrapped themselves in the flag and warned about China. Here's why their patriotic appeal was meaningless, misleading, and should be ignored.

In the congressional hearing Wednesday into antitrust concerns in the tech industry, the four CEOs who testified all touted their companies American roots, and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg warned of competition from China. The appeal to patriotism and nationalistic sentiments is a familiar tactic; the tech companies have used it repeatedly in recent years as they've come under increasing scrutiny. But it also has a long history — giant companies routinely tout their all-American roots and the th...

So it isn't a surprise that Google sees the web as key to the future of software. Front and center are web apps, interactive websites with the same power as conventional apps that run na...
