John beat me to it. I'd been planning this video for a while but, yesterday, he hit the Daring Fireball publish button on his thoughts about the rumored new MacBook before I could even get mine online. And, they were great: So if all these reports are true and Apple is coming out with a new entry-level portable with a 13.3-inch display and reduced bezels, the footprint of the device should shrink a bit too. That's why the current 13.3-inch MacBook Pro has a smaller footprint than the current 13.3-inch MacBook Air (11.97 × 8.36 inches vs. 12.8 × 8.94 inches). So maybe it's something obviously distinguishable from the current MacBook Air, even while the lid is closed — sort of a middle ground between the MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook. Something that keeps the Air's traditional teardrop-shaped profile, but noticeably thicker and larger than a 12-inch MacBook. If that's the case, I'd also expect modernized ports (USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 only?), and a … [Read more...] about Apple’s next entry-level MacBook: What is it and… why?
Entry level video game jobs
With iPhone cameras shooting incredibly high-quality video these days, it's a shame to leave all that footage sitting in your Photos library.

If the potential cost of video-editing software is holding you back, then have no fear. We've gathered together a list of the best free or cheap apps you can use on your Mac. For advice on the hardware side of things, see Best Mac for video editing. iMovie Price: Free Buy: Apple Mac Store A great place for anyone to begin dabbling in video editing is Apple's own iMovie.

100. Hotline Miami (2012) Platform: Microsoft WindowsHotline Miami is violent—really violent—but in a way that makes it ooze atmosphere: pulsing neon, pumping electronica, and blood splattered on the walls, and the floor, and you. You play as a thug fighting his way through room after room of men with guns and knives and every other murder-tool you can think of. You're not timed, but you must move quickl, because every room you enter requires mowing down enemies in a matter of seconds — lest the hail of bullets leaves you as the one splayed on the ground.

TowerFall (2013) Platform: OuyaOne of the only games to make buying an Ouya worthwhile (at least until it came to Steam and PS4 in 2014), TowerFall proved that multiplayer gaming could thrive on the couch, not just online. Inspired more by Super Smash Brothers than Street Fighter, this 2D arena fighter takes fighting games and … [Read more...] about The 100 Greatest Video Games of All Time

Last year, the answer to the long-standing question of how much smartphone can one get for their money changed in all the right ways. With handsets like the ASUS ZenFone 2, the Moto G, and the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, one can have a truly decent smartphone for less than $199. ZTE USA, the Chinese mobile company's state-side arm, has clued itself in on the matter.Priced at just $115, the ZTE Avid Plus runs Android Lollipop and features a 5-inch, 480 x 854-resolution LCD screen with DragonTrail glass for protection against scratches.This resolution is quite low for this screen diagonal, and the visible pixels won't make for a very immersive multimedia experience, but hey, you get what you pay for! The 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera setup isn't particularly impressive either, but it will certainly do the job of capturing a scene or landing a selfie.The smartphone is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB (4GB or less available to the user) … [Read more...] about ZTE USA’s $115 entry-level Avid Plus smartphone headed to T-Mobile and MetroPCS
