The sweet smell of fame and success: Doug McIntyre

For more than a hundred years the high cheek-boned and tapered-waisted have flocked to Southern California seeking wealth and fame, but mostly fame.

Apple and Facebook are at each other's throats over who exploits user data more

Apple CEO Tim Cook (left) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. AP; Francois Mori/AP In a letter to pro-privacy nonprofits on Thursday, Apple accused Facebook of collecting "as much data as possible" while showing a "disregard for user privacy." Facebook shot back saying Apple is abusing its dominance to "self-preference their own data collection." Apple's letter was defending the delayed rollout of a privacy feature that will require users to opt in to being followed by ad-trackers on apps. F...

MacBook Air M1 review: The right Apple Silicon Mac for most

Reviewing hardware is an act of minutia. Occasionally something new or potentially earth-shattering comes along, but on the whole, it’s about chipping away.

Apple’s as guilty of this as anyone, of course. That’s just the nature of a 12 to 24-month product cycle. Every refresh can’t be a revolution. Every so often, however, a game-changer c...
