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.

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.
