TunesKit — Make offline backups for Apple Music content

Streaming is the most popular and accessible way to listen to music yet the number of competitive services can be daunting. For Apple fans the best experience is clearly Apple Music as it was designed primarily for iOS and MacOS. The trouble with music streaming however is that you are heavily dependent on internet access and DRM restricts access to certified devices. There are however third party services that get around the stringent security of the Apple Music protected .m4p music files so you can keep backups and play music on unofficial media players. Here we review TunesKit Apple Music Converter for MacOS.

The future of VR is Open — HDK2 review

Virtual Reality is the biggest new venture in computing with the long awaited release of consumer VR headsets last year. The big names in VR at the moment are the VIVE, Oculus RIFT and PlayStation VR. These consumer headsets are remarkably expensive for first generation tech and being an early adopter is a big gamble when the direction of VR may change dramatically in the next few years. Platform and exclusivity wars are an additional hinderance for VR with Oculus or PSVR the culprits so far. Not all is doom and gloom however as there is a OpenVR standard for VR development called OSVR. Open standards for VR development are what will make VR flourish as content is not restricted to a given headset. Here we review an alternative HMD that is not constrained to platform or modification rules, keep reading for the what, how and why you should be considering the OSVR HDK2!

Best accessories for the touchbar MacBook Pro with USB-C / Thunderbolt 3

The MacBook Pro 2016 has finally arrived! Although it has received it's fair share of criticism there is no denying that Apple's new machine is still the best laptop you can buy. Since using the new MacBook Pro with TouchBar I have to say I personally love it and find it very useful yet it certainly is not an essential feature. The move to USB-C is also a welcomed move as only Apple are willing to take the risk of dropping legacy ports for the adopting the new standard. Here I have compiled a top five accessories list to complement the new MacBook Pro 2016.
