After recently fixing the "chaiOS" bug, Apple now has to contend with a nasty bug that will crash any Mac or iOS device that receives a single Indian-language character specific to the Telugu language. The bug doesn't affect every app - many third party apps are unaffected - but it's a major pain in the butt.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Mac: Apple used to boast that its Mac computers were a virus-free utopia, but that was before hackers and criminals decided to focus their efforts on the operating system. Now, your Mac is just as vulnerable to viruses as any Windows PC, and a new report reveals that hackers can get access to your computer through an entryway that you might think would be better protected: The Mac App Store.
Mac: Software updates are usually a good thing. They can bring new features and important security updates to whatever device you're using with little to no effort on your part. If you have a Mac computer, however, you're probably sick and tired of seeing that same "Updates Available" notification pop-up on your computer every day.
macOS: Freedom, the cross-platform app that blocks distracting websites, just got even more powerful. Now on macOS, and soon on Windows, Freedom can block desktop apps.
Mac: When it comes to email clients, there are a ton of options out there. For the past week, I've been using Boxy.

Mac: Whenever I'm out and about with my laptop, usually at a cafe or co-working space, I'll notice some peculiar connectivity issues. My Mac will often connect to an ISP-provided connection rather than the hotspot on my phone or the Wi-Fi in the building, as though it had a preference for one over the other.
Mac: If you're an avid Mac productivity app user, you know the cost of buying software can get a little out of control. Setapp, which was previously in beta, is a $US10 ($13)/month subscription service that gets you access to 61 different Mac apps.
Windows/Mac: The high-flying Aerial screensaver is one of my favourite things about the 4th generation Apple TV. It looks so cool I often find myself watching it instead of catching up on my Netflix shows. Here's how to get it on your Mac or PC.
Windows/Mac/Linux: A few months ago, Opera launched its own free, built-in VPN, but you could only get it if you manually enabled it in the dev version of the browser. Now, it's available for everyone in the stable version of Opera.
