Here is a handful of products I’ve shown him that you might also consider bringing along as you embark on a new semester.
A funny thing happened at the end of Apple’s Mac Studio event. Instead of announcing new models of the 27" iMac and Mac Pro—which is what we were all expecting—Apple announced a new Mac Pro, and that was it. What happened to the 27" iMac? Well, not only was there no new model, but Apple discontinued the existing generation and removed it from its online store. The unexpected move sent a clear signal that the Mac Studio with separate

Even working at 4K resolution can amount to around 741.6GB for an hour of RAW BMPC 24 footage. So, whether you prefer to shoot in compressed or uncompressed formats, it’s safe to

Maybe you’re an IT or data professional running servers, or a small business owner looking to protect your POS, computers, and
Apple is all in on the M-series chips. At the “Spring Loaded” event on April 22, Apple revealed multiple products that contain the M1 processor.

For a Kansas-born Midwesterner, Austin Gilmore’s resume reads more like a “What do you want to be when you grow up?” wish list than an actual CV. His job history includes time as a TV and movie producer, actor, animator, author, board game designer, toy maker, and art director—just to name a few. He helped create the Emmy-winning TV miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys, produced the New York Times bestseller, The Explorers Guild, and toured the world as a band documentarian. On top of all that, Gilmore is a wildly talented illustrator. His new
Springtime is all about cleaning and, while you’re busy folding clothes, organizing drawers, and dusting shelves, your computer is slowly suffocating. It’s easy to overlook cleaning your PC, but you shouldn’t put it off for too long. If left powered on, a computer will slowly build up dust, which can impede airflow, resulting in higher temperatures and possibly hardware failure.
