Apple’s Understanding of Games Is So Narrow It’s Screwing Itself

When most people think of Apple, video games aren’t the first thing to come to mind. Photo- or video-editing, of course, or some other type of creative work, but not gaming. That’s because of the way Apple designs and markets its products. Read More >>

Anjou Get a Lawsuit

Pears: the arch-goddess of the fruit pantheon, the inspiration of Cézanne, and to the untrained eye, dangerously similar to apples. As iPhone In Canada first reported, Apple has filed a notice of opposition against a meal planning app called Prepear for using a pear logo which is pear-shaped and pear-green.

I haven’t used an iMac in years, but when I unboxed the 2020 refresh of Apple’s 27-inch all-in-one desktop, I admit it: I smiled. It looks just like it always has (or at least the way it has for more than a decade): simple and streamlined, with the same floating aluminium-and-glass design, seriously giant bezels, and the Apple logo etched beneath the screen. It’s almost comforting how little has changed about the iMac in recent years, at least on the outside. Read More >>
