Macs have long been the go-to choice for creative professionals. Still, even with that legendary legacy it’s easy to see that there are a few relatively common features that haven’t quite found their way into the latest Mac. Many users find a solution by adding various accessories, such as a drawing tablet or secondary display. However, I would argue there is a better choice—the iPad. The

We'll take a closer look at each, along with some of the new services and software Apple unveiled today.       Watch Series 6 It's hard to believe we're already up to Series 6 of the Apple Watch.

This year has brought us a ton of Apple products. That’s not surprising. What is surprising is Apple announcing moving away from Intel’s x86 processors to its own custom ARM-based silicon. There is a lot to unpack here, especially for consumers who generally don’t need to know much about processors beyond, “Is this one faster than my old computer?” I’m not even saying most people need to understand the exact nuance between Apple and Intel silicon. A lot of this is

My twelve-year old son is a budding manga artist and, last year, we purchased a tablet and pen for him just as school-from-home was becoming a reality. He took full advantage of his new gadgets, drawing his favorite characters from Naruto and Demon Slayer and creating his own.

Unique tech is good. At least in my opinion. We have tons of typical laptops, tablets, and smartphones already available, making anything that can be the right tool for the job extremely valuable. It also might lead to someone finding a new, better way of working. The Microsoft Surface Book 3 is one of those unique devices, this time taking a distinct spin on the trend of convertible laptops/tablets. It even tries to punch up a bit by

If they don’t, then it’s less of a revelation, but still quite good. To determine where I fell on

Apple has been very busy. We’re only halfway through June and already it has launched what feels like a year’s worth of new products, including the latest models of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. And while I’ve tested the MacBook Pro, and can confirm that it is indeed excellent, I still contend that my favorite computer isn’t really a computer at all. It’s the 12.9" iPad Pro.
