Over the years, one of the top websites other than TUAW for getting hints about Mac OS X was Macworld's Mac OS X Hints. Now a post by former Macworld blogger Rob Griffiths is paying last respects to the site 14 years after it first went live. The site is still online, but as Griffiths notes, it has...

I can't say I was surprised when IDG World Expo's Paul Kent broke the news to us at TUAW that Macworld/iWorld 2015 was canceled and that the longtime Mac lovefest was on hiatus. It's kind of like having a good friend who has been ill for a long time, getting thinner every time you see him –...

Water and technology don't mix. If you drop your iPhone in a lake, pond, toilet, or martini, there's a fantastic chance it will end up being completely destroyed. Many of the little electrical bits inside the device don't take kindly to be drenched, especially if it leads to a short. However, as R...

Owners of Apple's iPhone 5s either seem to love its Touch ID fingerprint reader or hate it with a passion.

I certainly didn't start my career with plans to become a blogger and editor at one of the world's most active Apple websites.
