how to make better use of your disk drives in macos

i have an older solid state disk drive (ssd) in my mac pro that is decently fast but is a paltry 160gb in size. i could go about getting more disk space by either buying a new and larger ssd, backing up my current ssd, and then restoring the data on the new ssd. the larger the ssd, the larger the cost. especially when comparing it to the considerably less expensive and traditional hard disk drives (hdd), where i could buy much more capacity at a fraction of the cost.the other way i could increase capacity is by simply attaching another disk drive (ssd or hdd) to my system and be done with it. here we show you how to use the added disk drive more efficiently for your day-to-day tasks on macos.not all data is the samedepending on what you'll...

nintendo labo review: through the eyes of a child

as a grown-up in his mid 30s, i am just about as far as you can get from nintendo's target market for labo. this is, for all intents and purposes, and exercise in imagination with your nintendo switch as the assistant.so instead of getting bogged down in the technical aspects of how this all works, which is the way someone like me appreciates nintendo's latest creation, i asked my kids to share their thoughts. they are, after all, the ones who have been playing with these kits every waking moment since the kits arrived almost a week ago.see at amazonvery much worth the work you put into it.cailet - age 12when i first opened this big box, way bigger than the nintendo switch, it looked like a lot of work. you have to put together dozens of li...

marzipan: what you need to now about the rumored new xkit

apple has a problem. the teams working on its apps increasingly have to develop and maintain features across ios and macos. sometimes that causes work to go more slowly than anybody would like. sometimes it causes a lack of feature parity that nobody likes.that problem is echoed throughout the third-party developer community as well. it results in fewer mac apps with fewer features updated less often. or not at all.so, what to do? the answer, it seems, may be 'marzipan'.currently, ios apps use the uikit frameworks and mac apps use the older app kit frameworks. photos, which launched cross-platform, was implemented using the seemingly one-off uxkit for mac, and wasn't exactly an ideal execution.other companies were using web apps, electron ...

the future of mac hardware should be more flexible

changes are a-coming to the mac line. project marzipan — if reports are to be believed — will allow ios developers to build mac versions of their apps without breaking a sweat. this has fed the recurring rumor that macos and ios are on some sort of collision course to be merged into something altogether new, but apple ceo tim cook splashed some cool water on that tale in an interview with peter wells for the sydney morning herald:we don't believe in sort of watering down one for the other. both (the mac and ipad) are incredible. one of the reasons that both of them are incredible is because we pushed them to do what they do well. and if you begin to merge the two ... you begin to make trade-offs and compromises.so maybe the company wo...
