Apple is now discontinuing the space grey Mac accessories

This week, Apple decided to discontinue the space grey Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad with all three products still being listed for sale, but like it did with the HomePod the product listings say: “While supplies last”, in pretty small text.

Parallels has released an […]

This new Microsoft ad mocks the MacBook Pro touch bar

Back in the 2000s, Apple had a series of very famous adverts pitting the Mac against the PC and those adverts lasted a few years and Apple didn’t really do any of those adverts again, but in the mid 2010s Microsoft started the conflict again when it launched the new Surface line, comparing iPads and MacBooks to its 2-in-1 touchscreen PC and the latest advert aired over the weekend, during […]

Apple’s Mac sales grew by 16% in 2020

According to a report from Canalys Apple managed to ship 16% more Macs in 2020 than it did in 2019, but as the report point out it is still behind its main PC rivals, such as Dell, HP and Lenovo.
