Struggling to get through the day so you can do it all over again tomorrow, then indulge in some form of turkey product on Thursday? We feel your pain, and if you’re sick of sifting through all the early Black Friday promotions in search of some real news, then look no further -- here’s the bits and pieces that are shaking loose from the newswire for this Tuesday, November 22, 2011.
The smartypants who design the brains inside each of Apple’s iOS devices--the iPhone, iPad, iPhone touch, and Apple TV--have announced a new processor scheme with far-reaching implications not only for Apple’s überpopular consumer lineup, but for MacBooks, as well. And those designers aren’t Cupertinians.
Are you ready for Black Friday? Apple sure is, with the company announcing on Tuesday that “every gift list has its day” -- and that day is this Friday, when the company’s online store offers special one-day only discounts.
We’ve got three words for you today: Short work week! For our U.S. readers, Thanksgiving is this Thursday and many folks have an extra day off on Friday, which means you’ll have a longer weekend at play than you will working three days this week. (Our apologies to those of you who don’t get to enjoy that scenario. We feel your pain.) But there’s still plenty of news floating around the interwebs, and we’ve collected some of the best stuff for you to read on this fine Monday, November 21, 2011.
Whether you require some help in the kitchen, need to keep the kids entertained, or just want some talking points to pull your family out of that awkward political conversation, here’s a list of apps to help you enhance (and survive) Thanksgiving.
We're moving into the thick of the holiday season with Thanksgiving just around the corner, so get your fat pants ready. But before you can find yourself in that sweet couch food-coma, you're gonna have to make it to your dinner destination, and we've got some cranberry-jam-sweet deals on apps this week.
The end of the week is here, and most of our U.S. readers are ready to dive into the last full week of November with a light workload thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday (not to mention next Friday’s Black Friday insanity). So let’s head into the weekend with a couple of fun new iPad apps that harken back to a kindler, gentler era, ruminate on 2012 Apple products and brag about our U.S. carrier on this Friday, November 18, 2011.
Donna Summer put it best when she said that love is found on the radio. And sure, in this generation we've got stations like Pandora and Last.FM, but those stations ask us to dictate what it plays. The radio's best feature was just that: the way it could spontaneously change our moods based on the next song the DJ'd decide to play. With that, here are three free apps to help take you back to that time before the iPod was permanently tethered to your car stereo and you kicked the good ol' FM radio to the curb.
Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire arrived in the hands of early adopters this week, and we were among those who preordered following the announcement seven weeks ago. Now that it’s safely arrived in our hands, we’ve started poking, prodding and yes, tapping the Kindle Fire to give MacLife.com readers a quick look at this new budget-conscious, seven-inch Android-based tablet.
A good pair of headphones can make you feel the music instead of just hearing it. But any hip-hop producer can drop 808 beats so low that you feel them in your gut, and any headphone manufacturer can artificially pump up the bass to make their tiny speakers sound bigger than life. That doesn’t mean your headphones are good—it means you’re not listening to the music as it was produced and leveled. The Shure SRH940 headphones aim to balance the scales and change the game.
