They also look at why Sonos and IKEA have announced a partnership, and what Apple’s purchase of Pop Up Archive might mean. Then they fall down the rabbit hole of TextArc.
Feral Interactive announced Tuesday it was bringing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to the Mac. Better yet, the company is adding in support for Metal 2, Apple’s graphics API. Deus Ex is a cyberpunk-themed action-role playing franchise, with Mankind Divided being the most recent installment. It was released on PC in August, 2016. In this installment, players are Adam Jensen, an augmented covert agent. I loved the original Deus Ex, and am delighted to see Mankind Divided come to Mac. It’s going to be released December 12th for US$59.99/£39.99/€49.99 on Steam and direct from Feral Interactive. There’s a Deluxe Edition version, too, for $89.98/£64.98/€79.98.
As anticipated by the beta development cycle, Apple’s patch notes specify bug fixes in this release.

The short version of what this company does is making it possible to transcribe, organize, and search audio files.
Check out this crazy-cool invention called Inception Drive by Alexander Kernbaum of Stanford Research Institute (SRI), the same organization that developed Apple’s Siri. It’s an actuator, but one that uses a pulley-within-a-pulley to produce an infinitely-variable transmission. This technology could be used to make robots move more efficiently, and perhaps even make them safer. While Mr. Kernbaum’s focus is robotics, his invention could be applied to any number of uses where things move, and that’s just way cool. The IEEE Spectrum has more on the invention, including the video below. I love how Mr. Kernbaum is casually hanging out in a hallway with demo models of something that could change the way humanity’s machines move.
Kromtech said the user data was exposed—rather than hacked—most likely by misconfiguration of a MongoDB database.

Apple has a new spot called iPad Pro – Markup. It shows the same young woman featured in the What’s a Computer? spot. In this commercial, she’s sitting around with her iPad Pro talking to a friend with FaceTime. She snags a screenshot, marks up the screenshot, and then sends it to the friend in iMessage while continuing the conversation. It’s all fluid, natural, and easy. It ends with the tagline, “A new way to markup instantly.” On the one hand, I’m not sure how many kids can afford an iPad Pro. On the other, I think this delivery speaks perfectly to young people, and that’s entirely the target market.
