07/02, 12:34pm

Sometimes, we want to engage our mind, while at the same time turning it off.

Hands On: OmniFocus for Apple Watch

07/02, 10:30am

It's not even an app. The actual app is OmniFocus 2.5.3 for iOS, it's just when you get that, you get this.

You'd be mad to, with the iPhone on your person or two feet away from you, but you could -- and it's a remarkable example of what can be done on the Watch right now.

Editorial: Pardon? You don't like Apple Music?

07/01, 5:52pm

It's not compulsory to like anything, and the world would be a dull place if everybody thought the same way. Plus, there are criticisms you can make of Apple Music's launch, its various limitations, and how iTunes 12 is still complex, some of which we delved into earlier today. Only Apple Music is getting a bad press primarily for being good, and for doing what you'd expect a streaming music service to do. It has honestly been criticized for being fun. Damn those Apple people, how dare they make something fun? Don't they know music is serious?

07/01, 4:24pm

There are moments in the past each one of us wishes have gone differently. From an embarrassing scene we can't live down, to the regret piled on from a missed opportunity, we're reminded how fleeting time can be in hindsight. For some of us, these moments repeat in our minds as we attempt to find a scenario in which all the right things are said and done to alleviate the pain they cause. Bracket Games dives into this character flaw in Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition, a piece of interactive fiction centered on a family in the midst of a turning point. But is it worth reliving harsh times in order to grow, or is Bracket Games setting players up for a lifetime of hurt?

Hands On: iTunes 12.2.0 (OS X)

07/01, 4:07pm

It's been called over-complicated, it's been called confusing, but it's also been called the place where you keep all your music by nearly everyone in the civilized world. That last has now changed: it's the place you get to almost all the music ever created in the history of the world, and then some. Okay, maybe no,t but we had -- hang on, let's check -- 9,692 songs yesterday and today we have (counts on fingers) 30,000,000, give or take the Beatles. The new iTunes 12.2 for Mac brings some minor changes, and one massive one with the introduction of Apple Music to OS X.
