Apple Revives MacBook Series With A Serious Focus On Thinness

Posted on March 9, 2015 4:50 PM by Rob Williams
Apple MacBook (2015)

Apple’s previous MacBook series didn’t have a big focus on thinness, and for the most part, I guess we could have called it standard fare – the “entry” of the MacBook world. When the series was shelved in 2011, it wasn’t clear if it’d ever make a return; or, if it did,…..

CHERRY DW 3000 Wireless Combo Stock Shot

Here’s a CHERRY-infused product that’s a bit different: A wireless mouse and keyboard combo that does not feature CHERRY’s mechanical switches that we’ve come to know and love. Instead, the DW 3000 has two goals: To be wireless, and to be simple. But is it possible that this combo is a bit…..

2016 Honda Civic Type R - Angle

The Honda Civic may be known to most people as a rather prosaic, even boring, automobile. That, however, is without reckoning or acknowledging that the Civic actually has been a long-time contender in the “hot hatch” and sporty coupe markets for decades.

Does anybody remember the iconic BMW M1? The M1 was a Lamborghini-designed BMW mid-engined supercar from the late 1970s. It was BMW’s attempt to enter that rarefied marketplace occupied at the time by Ferrari and its 512BB, Maserati’s Bora, and Lamborghini’s own Countach.

Leaner, Meaner Gen 2 Audi R8 Debuts in Geneva

2016 Audi R9 - Angle

The Audi R8 is, I have to say, one of my favorite supercars. It’s got the perfect size (lots of supercars, even the ones I like a lot, are far too big), handsome styling, and a V10 that at full howl reminds me a lot of Formula 1’s glorious “V10 era.” The fact that it has…..
