    The iPad mini isn’t receiving any update

    The writing is on the wall. The iPad mini 4 is probably going to be the last iPad mini ever. Apple just announced iPad updates during its WWDC keynote. Both the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models are receiving major updates. In the meantime, the iPad mini feels like the neglected device in the iPad lineup, and it’s now probably on life support.

    Plot twist: the MacBook Air is still alive

    The MacBook Air just won’t die. While Apple introduced a thinner, lighter MacBook Pro last year, people still want a new MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro is roughly as heavy as the 13-inch MacBook Air, but it’s still more expensive. That’s why customers still love the MacBook Air. Instead of killing the MacBook Air altogether, Apple is keeping it around as it still sells fine. Read More

  • The LittleBits Code Kit is an easy way to play (and learn) with Arduino

    The LittleBits Code Kit is an easy way to play (and learn) with Arduino

    I’m not a fan of educational toys. They’re usually either too educational or too toy-like and, in the end, kids get little education and little fun. The Code Kit from LittleBits has changed my mind. The Code Kit is very specifically targeted at classroom learning for grades 3-8 and costs $299. Why?

According to a new report from Axios, the Apple executive could be planning to leave the company really soon. Saint John was the head of global consumer marketing for Apple Music.

  • HoloKit is like Google Cardboard for augmented reality

    HoloKit is like Google Cardboard for augmented reality

    The revelation behind Google Cardboard was that if you put your phone close enough to your eyes, it’s basically a VR headset — but it’s not quite that simple for mixed reality setups like Microsoft’s HoloLens. Or is it? HoloKit is an extremely clever DIY solution for a quick and dirty augmented reality experience with a bare minimum of equipment. Read More
