The Mac – or “Macintosh” if we’re going back to 1984 – is the first computer to effectively market a graphical computer to the masses, all delivered by Apple (or, at the time, Apple Computer).
The Mac has gone through several stages of evolution and iteration since 1984, including the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro, Performa, Power Mac (including the G4 Cube!), iBook, and more. It remains one of the most popular computers you’ll see in business, schools, and homes today.
Apple is making it clear that 32-bit apps on the Mac are going away and the future will be 64-bit only. So how to you tell if your Mac has a 32-bit or 64-bit processor? Read on to learn how.

In this episode, Bryan and Jeff discuss Mac keyboards, and what they like about clicky, long-throw keyboards, including the Azio Classic Retro BT keyboard Bryan just reviewed. They also go through a thought experiment on whether Facebook could ever earn our trust on privacy by radically reshaping their policies. They cap the show with a look at how Apple manages to be profitable and green, both.
PDFpen 10 and PDFpen Pro 10 for the Mac are out with support for watermarks, headers and footers, and improved selection features. The Pro version also adds batch OCR support.

I love cool type tools, so I have to assume Will Shipley created Textlicious specifically for me. Textlicious is an iOS extension that lets you use styled text in iPhone and iPad apps that typically don’t easily support anything other than plain text. Apps like Twitter, Facebook, and Messages, for example. It includes several styles such as italics, bold, script, and more. Textlicious is US$1.99 on Apple’s App Store, and there’s a Mac version available, too.
