A lot has been said about Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro refresh . Thanks to industry leaks, we can expect thinner bezels, a new design, greater port variety, and much more. But the webcam? No one seems to be talking about that — and that is a problem. You see, Apple likes to say its MacBook Pro laptops are the best in the biz. They have professional-level performance thanks to the new M1 chip , pro storage speeds on their megafast SSDs, and pro longevity thanks to their top-notch construction. But since when is 720p a pro webcam resolution? Back when Apple was still making MacBooks with butterfly keyboards, I bought a 2015 MacBook Pro because I wanted something more comfortable to type on. I got it in 2019 and a crummy webcam was an acceptable price to pay for avoiding my own personal butterfly hell. Little did I expect that two years later, Apple would still be pumping out $2,000 laptops with the same low-grade front-facing camera that it has been using for close to a … [Read more...] about The next MacBook Pro better not have a measly 720p webcam

Fortnite developer Epic Games continues to make power plays in its quest to become a true superpower.

If the word “metaverse” sounds like something out of science fiction media, that’s because it quite literally is.

Stop us if you've heard this before: John McAfee has been accused of a crime. This time it's because he allegedly pocketed $13 million from people who, prompted by McAfee's tweets, wanted to profit from the cryptocurrency boom of 2017 and 2018. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a press release on Friday that McAfee and the executive adviser of his cryptocurrency team, Jimmy Watson, "exploited a widely used social media platform and enthusiasm among investors in the emerging cryptocurrency market to make millions through lies and deception." Which is the legalese way of saying McAfee and Watson were accused of lying on Twitter, convincing people they should invest in the booming cryptocurrency market, and then pocketing nearly $2 million between the two of them. FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. described it as "an age-old pump-and-dump scheme." McAfee and Watson were also accused of using Twitter to promote Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) without … [Read more...] about Feds Accuse John McAfee ‘Crypto Team’ of Fraudulently Pocketing Over $13 Million

Alopecia is a common autoimmune skin disease that causes sudden hair loss as a person’s immune system attacks their hair follicles. The most common cause of alopecia is said to be severe stress, and it affects as many as 6.8 million people in the U.S. alone. Hair loss usually begins in small patches and can occur on the scalp, and in some cases, the eyebrows, eyelashes, face, and other parts of the body. The condition, which has no cure, can result in total hair loss, called alopecia universalis , which may prevent hair from growing back. The extent of hair loss and regrowth varies from person to person and can happen throughout a person’s life. The condition can cause psychological and emotional distress.
