A pain medicine that potently activates a receptor vital to a healthy retina appears to help preserve vision in a model of severe retinal degeneration, scientists report.
(Credit: Apple) The next 6 months should see a stream of cool products from Apple. Boring doesn't leap to mind. Last year saw the introduction of the 12-inch Retina MacBook and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Both groundbreaking. (I say that as an everyday user of both.)The Apple Watch also became available in that [...]
Despite killing the Thunderbolt Display without a replacement this week, Apple is still working on a successor --?one that will reportedly have its own separate integrated graphics card, likely to push a high-resolution Retina displ...
Apple seems to be constantly evolving its technology, and the Macbook Pro is no exception. Macbooks without retina display available are vanishing from store shelves, and this is no accident. Perhaps because Apple thinks people want Macbook Pros with the highest resolution, the tech company is keeping its older creations under wraps. Show More Summary
Apple’s 2016 retina MacBook, running on an Intel “Core-m” processor, starts at $1,299. In the waning years of the previous decade, the PC market groped for a new hardware “paradigm.” Unfortunately, what it came up with was the so-called Netbook, a machine that was very slim and light, but also badly underpowered.

Best story of the year. A 7-year-old Chicago Cubs fan had his right eye surgically removed following the discovery of retinoblastoma, a malignant tumor on the retina that is almost exclusively found in young children. Beckham stated he was taunted relentlessly by other kids because he had a missing eye. “This kid just started calling him a […]
Though speculation and rumors have been mounting that Apple could introduce a new high-resolution Thunderbolt Display with its own discrete graphics card, a new report pours cold water on those hopes, saying such a device will not be seen at this month's Worldwide Developers Conference -- if ever.
To call Apple's Thunderbolt Display long in the tooth would be an understatement. It's so old that the first Retina display Macs were still a year away when it was new, and it's now easy to get a 4K display for less. At last, though, it looks like Apple might be ready to give its standalone screen an upgrade... Show More Summary

The current $999 (!) Thunderbolt Display is showing its age to put it mildly, now significantly overshadowed by Retina MacBooks and iMacs in terms of screen resolution and quality. Reaffirming earlier reports, we have heard that stock...Show More Summary
