No, that was not a mistake. Yes, it is called the iMac Pro. And yes, it comes with a 8, 10 or 18-core Intel Xeon processor. It can also be configured with up to 128 GB of RAM and up to 32 GB of AMD’s newest Radeon Pro Vega desktop-class GPUs. Incredible.

The age of traditional TV is dying quickly as millennials are choosing to watch programs online instead. It’s obvious: paying separately for TV to watch shows that you can anyway catch online is redundant. As big cable TV providers suffer, YouTube made its own cable TV replacement. But is it worth it?

In an overnight store make-over, Apple announced many new products. The biggest one that caught everyone’s attention is the Product(RED) iPhone. It is the first time Apple announced a red iPhone, and it seems to be a popular colour choice.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in Product(RED) look really good. It isn’t a “jet” finish but is a matt finish similar to the Matt Black iPhone 7, and has a darker shade of red versus other Apple Product(RED) products. It is only available in 128 GB and 256 GB models and can be purchased starting 24th March. Other than that, it is a standard iPhone 7/7 Plus.
Should you buy it? If you like red, consider it. But know that if you are coming from a black iPhone (or obsess over the darker shades), the white front won’t look as impressive. But if you want to make an impact in funding for an AIDS-free generation, definitely get it.
Apple also announced a new 9.7” 'iPad' which replaces the iPad Air 2. It has the A9 processor but it heavier and thicker. Apple also scrapped the 16 GB iPhone SE, upgraded storage options for the iPad mini 4 and announced a new app called ‘Clips’ that seems to be inspired by Snapchat.
