review: blackmagic egpu – quiet, beautiful, and limited in scope [video]
the blackmagic egpu is an external graphics enclosure sold exclusively (for the time being) at the apple store. it’s a notable product for several of reasons. first and foremost, it’s the first time that apple has sold an external graphics enclosure in its store. this makes sense, considering that macos was recently upgraded with official egpu support in version 10.13.4 back in the spring.another reason to take note is that the blackmagic egpu is the first external graphics chassis to include official support for the lg ultrafine 5k display (hands-on), a monitor that apple recommends as a replacement for its now discontinued thunderbolt display.but perhaps the most appealing feature of the blackmagic egpu is its silence. blackmagic advertises its ultra quiet status right on the product packaging, and it’s not joking, this enclosure is extremely low noise.with a launch alongside highly anticipated new macbook pro hardware, the blackmagic egpu is now available exclusively at apple stores. is this the egpu that you should consider for your mac? watch our hands-on video for the details.synology rt2600ac: the airport extreme replacement.specificationsall-in-one designultra-quiet ≅18dbbuilt-in radeon pro 580 with 8gb of gddr5 memorytwo thunderbolt 3 portsfour usb 3 portsone hdmi 2.0 port85w of power delivery for full speed macbook pro chargingbuilt in psuofficially supports lg ultrafine 5k display via thunderbolt 3thunderbolt 3 cable (0.5 m) includedpower cable included...

full 2018 macbook pro teardown shows off bigger battery, new t2 chip, more
though ifixit offered us a brief glimpse at the new macbook pro keyboard last week, the site is back today with its full teardown of the 2018 13-inch macbook pro with touch bar. while the internals of the new macbook pro look similar to last year’s on the surface, ifixit says there are a few things worth noting…sylvania homekit light stripfirst and foremost, ifixit highlights the new macbook pro’s bigger battery. while apple isn’t expecting any improvement in battery life, the battery itself is now arrayed into six cells instead of five – a notable feat considering the actual weight of the macbook pro has not changed:at 58.0 wh, this battery has gotten a significant boost over the 49.2 wh unit we found in our original 13″ touch bar teardown. turns out that extra ‘oomph’ comes from a slightly bigger battery—arrayed into six cells this time, instead of five. it’s also heavier, weighing in at in at 232.7 g, versus the old battery’s 196.7 g.and yet this macbook pro’s total weight hasn’t changed one iota. we’re not sure which parts of this device have been on a diet, but it does look like apple shaved some mass off the top case.through the teardown, we can also see that apple has made the speakers on the device a bit bigger, with a comparison to last year’s model showing that the new ones are “longer and narrower, bumping right up against the logic board.”ifixit notes that the “lone piece of happy repair news” is the trackpad, which is replac...

full 2018 macbook pro teardown shows off bigger battery, new t2 chip, more
though ifixit offered us a brief glimpse at the new macbook pro keyboard last week, the site is back today with its full teardown of the 2018 13-inch macbook pro with touch bar. while the internals of the new macbook pro look similar to last year’s on the surface, ifixit says there are a few things worth noting…sylvania homekit light stripfirst and foremost, ifixit highlights the new macbook pro’s bigger battery. while apple isn’t expecting any improvement in battery life, the battery itself is now arrayed into six cells instead of five – a notable feat considering the actual weight of the macbook pro has not changed:at 58.0 wh, this battery has gotten a significant boost over the 49.2 wh unit we found in our original 13″ touch bar teardown. turns out that extra ‘oomph’ comes from a slightly bigger battery—arrayed into six cells this time, instead of five. it’s also heavier, weighing in at in at 232.7 g, versus the old battery’s 196.7 g.and yet this macbook pro’s total weight hasn’t changed one iota. we’re not sure which parts of this device have been on a diet, but it does look like apple shaved some mass off the top case.through the teardown, we can also see that apple has made the speakers on the device a bit bigger, with a comparison to last year’s model showing that the new ones are “longer and narrower, bumping right up against the logic board.”ifixit notes that the “lone piece of happy repair news” is the trackpad, which is replac...

apple removes qanon fringe conspiracy theory application from the app store
an app meant to keep readers informed about the qanon conspiracy theory has been removed from the app store. as first reported by nbc news, the “qdrops” application would send users alerts for new developments in the theory, but was pulled by apple on grounds of violations of its app store guidelines…sylvania homekit light stripqdrops, developed by a “husband and wife team” from north carolina, originally launched on ios back in april and peaked at no. 10 of all paid applications in the app store and no. 1 in the entertainment category. the app was available for $0.99, which means apple was taking a cut of all sales.following inquires from nbc news, however, apple removed the application on sunday. in a statement, a spokeswoman explained that while the app store supports all points of view, this app violates the app store guidelines:“the app store has always supported all points of view being represented, as long as the apps are respectful to users with differing opinions and the quality of the experience is great,” apple spokesperson stephanie saffer said in a statement.“we have published clear guidelines that developers must follow in order for their apps to be distributed by the app store, designed to foster innovation and provide a safe environment to all of our users. we will take swift action to remove any apps that violate our guidelines or the law — we take this responsibility very seriously.”nbc explains that the fringe qanon theory has gained tra...

review: upstaa’s instant standing desk is a neat affordable option for macbook users
early standing desks didn’t really get much traction. few people wanted to be standing all day, so it was only when adjustable sit-stand desks came along that they increased in popularity.apple is so committed to them that it is ensuring that every employee at its new apple park campus has one, a discreet button moving them between sitting and standing positions.we’ve reviewed a couple of sit-stand desks, but nice ones aren’t cheap – a problem dutch company upstaa set out to solve …nordvpnif you’re trying to do a sit-stand desk on a budget, there are a couple of different options open to you. the first is to buy a complete desk, with prices starting from below $200. that sounds great, but you do tend to get what you pay for. most of us spend a long time sat at our desks, and we want something that looks and feels good.the second option is a conversion system of some kind. but decent ones still cost a few hundred dollars – such as the one we reviewed back in 2013 – while cheap ones look cheap. even the amazon basics one, which costs $179, isn’t exactly stylish.what upstaa provides is a simple-to-assemble stand that converts any conventional desk into a standing desk within a minute or so, looks good and costs a relatively affordable $175.the bad newslet’s start with the bad news: if you use an imac or an external monitor, upstaa isn’t for you. it’s designed purely for use with a laptop.look & feelupstaa is made from wood – birch – and comes in four ...
