Happy Black Friday! Here’s hoping none of our readers got pepper sprayed or even shot at today while out scrounging for the best deals they could find on their favorite electronics and other merchandise. We’ve been safely ensconced here at MacLife.com World Headquarters gearing up for “Phase Two” next week with Cyber Monday, the unofficial shopping day sequel to the festivities that are going down today, Friday, November 25, 2011. Let’s be careful out there!
The gaming industry is about to come grinding to a cacophonous, all-encompassing halt for the next few days, but luckily we got all of the gaming news and announcements we need to hold us over until the holiday is over.
In this week's Law & Apple, the legal adventures of Apple seem to be stickier than cranberry sauce, but at least one major slice of the courtroom pie is going Cupertino's way this week. Also on the roster, HTC pins a lot of wishes, including a $300 million purchase of another company, on a set of complaints filed against Apple. It appears, this time, that Apple gets the better break of the legal wishbone.
Sit down and dig in to another week of Law & Apple. And don't be shy about going for seconds, either. It's Thanksgiving tomorrow, after all.
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.
Imagine every feature you could ever want from an iPod dock. Go on, make a list. Ours includes AirPlay, solid sound quality, an iPod charging dock, and a reasonable price tag. This is good news for the iW1, which includes all these features and a boatload of others we didn’t even know we wanted.
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.
It took me at least 40 minutes to figure out what the hell was happening on-screen when I started playing Monsters Ate My Condo. It’s not that this match-three puzzle game is all that difficult to understand. My bewilderment was mostly a result of the colorful, sensory-overload madness of it all, as flashing lights, combo meters, and animated text chaotically cluttered the screen.
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.
Introduced alongside iOS 5, Cards allows users to produce and mail made-to-order letterpress greeting cards with nothing more than an iPhone or iPod touch. Sounds pretty slick right? Well, it would be – if it weren't so rough around the edges. Unfortunately, from start to finish, Cards feels only a little better than half-baked, and that's more than a shade shy of what we've come to expect from Apple.
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.
