Christian Selig is Apollo’s lone developer and at the center of the fight taking over Reddit. | Image: Christian Selig ‘Reddit has plugged its ears and refuses to listen to anybody but themselves. And I think there’s some very minor concessions that they can make to make people a lot happier.’ Christian Selig did not mean to be the face of a revolution. All the Canadian developer wanted, really, was to be able to keep working on his app. But that app, a Reddit client called Apollo, has become the central figure in an all-out platform war. The short version of a long history goes like this: in April, Reddit announced new terms for its API, the tool through which…
Macworld I get it. You’re excited and/or angry about the $3,500 headset Apple might sell you next year if you’re in the right country. It’s worth getting excited about. But in terms of real-world, right-now impact, the surprise winner of the WWDC 2023 keynote is… wait for it… the Mac! I would never have imagined it beforehand, but it’s true: Apple’s Mac announcements on Monday were huge news, despite being overshadowed by shiny future products and platforms that won’t let anyone do anything until 2024. MacBook Air +2 While I’m acting all contrarian-like, let me double down.

The legendary soccer player has said that he will be signing a deal with Inter Miami in MLS, fresh off of winning the World Cup last year with Argentina, and the club confirmed the news with a not-so-subtle tease on Twitter. Having arguably the best player in the game is a big coup for both the club and the league — but also for Apple, which has MLS streaming rights for the next decade. The announcement comes after much consternation about where Messi would land following a stint in Paris; rumors placed him returning…

Apple’s ongoing push into financial products and services, including its new high-yield Savings account with Goldman Sachs, could spell trouble for regional banks trying to retain deposits amid the banking system’s recent distress and rising interest rates. Apple Card users can easily set up and manage Savings directly in their Apple Card in Wallet. Lyle Niedens for Investopedia: Last month, Apple extended its foray into finance by launching a high-yield savings account allowing Apple Card users to store their daily cash rewards in a Goldman Sachs savings account offering an annual percentage rate of 4.15% — more than 10 times the national average. In recent weeks, some bank customers have grown skittish about depositing money in the U.S. banking system,…
Macworld Macs may be a far less tempting target for malware and viruses, but they’re not immune from attack. Even if you don’t care about adware or being used as means to infect users on other platforms, it’s still possible to fall victim to ransomware, or password theft. Accordingly, good antivirus for Mac software will protect your Mac on all of these fronts. It’ll catch malware that’s still spreading or in circulation; block ransomware; protect older systems with out-of-date software from security vulnerabilities; prevent your Mac from acting as a carrier for malware aimed at other operating systems; and keep infected files off of any virtual machines you’re running. As to the question of which Mac antivirus software you should choose,…
