Review: Late 2016 15 Inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

0

With all the popularity of the iOS platform in recent years, the Mac platform has taken a back seat in Cupertino. To a certain degree, Apple’s implied forecast of the future – that iOS and non-traditional OS’ will succeed traditional desktop OS’ such as macOS — is correct. As more and more things move to the web, there becomes less of a need for something like a Mac. That said, there are still key things that while they can be done on a more mobile device or tablet, doesn’t mean they should or that such a scenario will be “the best”. Whatever…

The Macbook Pro is upon us and Michael has his paws on one!

Then we wrap up with our review of Tyranny, the story-rich…

B3 Podcast – Episode 19: Samsung’s Swan Song

0

More Samsung Note 7 woes are discussed, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones have arrived, Yahoo cozies up with the F.B.I., Michael tries to lure Nathan onto an Apple device yet again, and we review “Virginia,” the mystery thriller adventure game by Variable State. If you still have a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, you’re living life to the very fullest, dangerously, and on the edge. Just don’t attempt to board a growing number of international flights. It’s another magical journey through the twisting, winding paths that sweep their way through the minds of two of earth’s greatest carbon life forms,…

New MacBook Pros are here.

15 inch The Pro-est of the pros, the 15-inch has all the power you could want. Core i7 processors with base speeds of 2.6/27 GHz (Turbo up to 3.6 GHz) up to an optional and upgraded base 2.9 GHz (Turbo up to 3.8 GHz). To be fair, though, the CPU upgrade has rarely been worth it in modern times on Apple’s laptop range. RAM is firmly planted at 16 GB with no upgrade option – a bit disappointing given the $4,000+ plus one could build to order. GPU options come in the form of AMD Radeon 450 or 455…

Image Credit: Android Central It’s all pretty self explanatory…. now that all the proverbial cats have been let out of their respective bags, what are you rating as your top device going into the winter 2016 season? Or if picking a “top” is too much to ask, what are you looking to purchase next?

Review: Ubiquiti networking

0

There are a multitude of wireless routers, hubs, and switches aimed at the consumer market. And while the higher end may have enough features to please even more picky power users and “techies”, there’s something to be said about choices, particularly prosumer choices. One such company that falls under that category is Ubiquiti. They’ve been around for awhile to be fair. But, over time they’re continued to build upon the previous generation’s successes and keep moving forward. The team over at Ubiquiti was nice enough to send over a nice assortment of goodies including their Gateway/firewall, 8 port switch, Cloud…

B3 Podcast – Episode 18: Gears of War 4 Review

0

This week (there’s another podcast coming, don’t worry) Nathan and Sir Michael the third review and reflect on the latest hit AAA game, Gears of War 4. We laughed. We slammed our fists in anger (much to the chagrin of fellow library attendees). We even embraced one another and cried through the scary moments (Nathan cried more than Michael) All in all, it was a blast. TL;DR – we reviewed a thing –> Gears of War 4.

Also, we talk about iOS 10’s poor encryption, Samsung “fixes” 1 million Note 7’s (unlike their exploding washing machines), record labels are suing again, drilling holes in your iPhone 7, and the phenomenal YouTube growth of Zoie Burgher, the scantily clad and controversial Twitch streamer.
