Essential Apple Podcast 24: HDMI Issues, 4k TV and a Dose Of Barry.

A new superstar of the podcasting world is born as our very own Bazza takes over hosting duties for the week.

It's another week of Apple news, HDMI woes and Karls got a fancy new 4k television.

STM Atlas iPad Pro case

The 12inch iPad Pro is a wonderful piece of kit. It has fast become one of my favourite pieces of Apple technology. However for the longest time it basically remained the iPad I kept at home. Both the cost of the darn thing and the insurmountable size of it made me nervous of taking it with me when I hit the road (in my case this is usually public transport as I sold my car last year). However with the recent addition of the Atlas iPad Pro case I have started to feel more comfortable taking this monstrous device out with me.

A new update is out with new features exclusively for paying customers.

Bring Back The Best Games Of YesterYear With Retro Gaming On Your Mac.

Gaming on the Mac is a strange beast. Take a look at some top tier games and you'll find an array of information telling you what isn’t compatible, rather than what will work. I'm looking at you X-Com 2. Running a system a couple of years old will stand you in good stead especially since Apple hasn't updated some product lines in over 300 days, but even then if you don’t have the top of the line model you may be struggling with some of the most demanding  games.

Apple Releases New Apple TV Remote App

Finally, some might say, the promised Apple TV Remote app has been released to the general public after being part of the iOS 10 developer Beta since WWDC.
