Ah, Carrot. She's our favorite of a wide array of choices for robot overlords, and the mascot for the Carrot series of apps. If you weren't aware, we had checked out Carrot To-Do a while back, which is a productivity app that keeps you productive with a strange mix of death threats and achievements. Currently, there are quite a few Carrot apps, and they're planning to add more to their collection, but today we'll take a look at Carrot Weather, because maybe your meteorologist should be a murderous robot.

Latest MacBooks drop Windows 7 compatibility in Boot Camp

03/20, 5:30pm

Apple's traditional zeal to push users forward extends even to its support for a rival platform, as the latest MacBook refreshes -- the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, 13-inch MacBook Air, and the forthcoming MacBook -- now require Windows 8 or later to work with Boot Camp, Apple's tool to create a dedicated Windows partition for users who need the compatibility. The company first dropped Windows 7 with the latest Mac Pro in 2013.

Hands on: Swing Tail 1.0 (iOS)

03/20, 1:11pm

Swing Tale by FDG Entertainment is 100 levels of adventure for an unnamed cyclopean creature from whom tentacles suddenly sprout to grab onto things and swing its bouncy spherical body around the world. That may sound terrifying, but it's actually all quite adorable. We enjoyed the personality of the game, and playing around with the physics inherent in the use of tentacles as a means of transportation.

Hands On: Downcast 2.8.28 (iOS)

03/20, 10:42am

Devices come and go, generally every two years when your cellular plan comes up for renewal, but a good utility app transcends hardware. Downcast by Jamawkinaw Enterprises is one such app for this reviewer. We first downloaded it back when Apple spun Podcasts off into a separate app, which we didn't find very intuitive at the time. Downcast is very intuitive, and we've never looked back.
