Hands-On By William Gallagher Friday, July 20, 2018, 08:06 am PT (11:06 am ET) BetterTouchTool is a venerable app that has always brought countless tools to any Mac with a trackpad. Add it to a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, though, and you could become a fan of that little OLED strip. AppleInsider checks it out. As good and useful as that trackpad on your Mac is, it's idle most of the time. BetterTouchTool turns it into hard-working assistant that with a tap or a gesture you can have launch apps, change brightness, swap Spaces and make windows snap to the sides of your screen. This utility has been providing all of this to Mac users for years but now it works with Apple's Touch Bar —and it makes that underused technology shine.Works with any Mac Whatever Mac you've got and whether you use a trackpad or a mouse, BetterTouchTool offers you more control. It's ridiculous what you can do with this app. You're used to tapping and dragging on your trackpad but BetterTouchTool can tell … [Read more...] about BetterTouchTool is the app the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar needs
Feature By Malcolm Owen Thursday, July 12, 2018, 10:38 am PT (01:38 pm ET) Apple's MacBook Pro refresh on Thursday revealed Apple has incorporated True Tone technology into a Mac's display for the first time. AppleInsider sheds some light on the color management system that aims to keep the image the same for the user, wherever they are situated. The announcement of the 2018 MacBook Pro line included a number of changes to the notebook lineup, with the main changes including support for up to 32GB of memory, 8th-generation Intel Core processors, and up to 4TB of SSD storage. Other important changes include a new quieter keyboard, the use of the Apple T2 chip for enhanced security, and the addition of "Hey Siri" support. As part of the updates, the display also received some attention. Alongside the 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide color gamut support, the display also uses Apple's True Tone technology, marking its first appearance in an iMac or MacBook display. What is True … [Read more...] about What is Apple’s True Tone technology on the 2018 MacBook Pro, and why does it matter?
Review By Mike Wuerthele Friday, February 23, 2018, 09:37 am PT (12:37 pm ET) The IOGear USB-C Compact Docking Station with Power Delivery Pass-Thru is a port-replacement peripheral for USB 3.1 type C gear, but isn't ideal for Apple's entire portable line. The IOGear USB-C Compact Docking Station with Power Delivery Pass-Thru is intended for USB 3.1 generation 1 Type-C gear like the MacBook. Given the Thunderbolt 3 spec, it can also be used on the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro, and the 2017 iMac line. We tested it on a 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro, a 2016 MacBook, and briefly, a 2017 20-inch 4K iMac. The GUD3C03 has a plethora of ports absent from the MacBook and Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro. Three USB 3.0 type A ports and a 2.5mm headphone and microphone jack are on one thin side of the assembly. The next side has a HDMI port, a VGA port, Gigabit Ethernet, and a Mini DisplayPort. One more rotation brings a microSD card slot, a SD card reader, and the USB-C power pass-through port capable of … [Read more...] about Review: MacBook users should consider the IOGear USB-C Compact Docking Station, MacBook Pro owners need not apply
