windscribe pro: a great vpn at a great price

Windscribe Pro is a good VPN for securing a connection over open Wi-Fi, but what really sets this service apart are the extra features. It also has good speeds, and a very good price. For well over a year, the company has been working on a new app design, dubbed Windscribe 2.0. The refresh has already rolled out on mobile, but has yet to hit the desktop of either operating system. We’ll update this review once the app changes, but there’s so much to offer with this service we got tired of waiting and decided to plunge ahead. SECURITY, SOFTWARE, AND SERVERS Windscribe is based in Richmond Hill, Ontario and was founded by Yegor Sak and Alex Paguis. The service offers 59 different country connections (plus a “Fake Antartica” connection) with more than…

apple media sharing limits explained and why you should use plex instead

Apple has implemented multiple kinds of sharing for media—apps, music, audiobooks, movies, and TV shows—but imposes limits across a few directions, ostensibly not to reduce piracy, but to limit the reach of any particular purchased item. Some of this–maybe all of it–is at the behest of copyright holders that require Apple to meet certain terms to offer the media at all. If you BYOM (bring your own media) to any of Apple’s software that manages, plays, and shares it, you’ll feel these limitations, depending on with whom you share and how you’ve set things up. The better alternative if you have a lot of your own stuff to share among a family, including on the go and geographically dispersed? Plex. (It’s obligatory and morally necessary for me to point out that none of…

the switch to apple silicon: will the touch bar survive?

The arrival of Macs running Apple silicon isn’t just about faster, more-power-efficient processors. It’s also an opportunity for Apple to reinvent Mac hardware using lessons learned from the iPhone and iPad. Apple can take this time to also reconsider some Mac hardware decisions of the past decade, most notably the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro. While some users swear by it, the Touch Bar generally seems to have been received with indifference or scorn. Updates over the years have done almost nothing to improve it, making me wonder if even Apple has truly embraced the thing. By the end of this year, Apple will begin rolling out those new Macs. Sooner or later, the Intel MacBook Pro will be replaced with a model running on Apple silicon. Here’s the big question:…

stay in shape with the iphone and apple watch

While we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, rules about going out have loosened up. But experts agree that the best way to protect yourself is to limit your interactions with other people. If you like to exercise in a gym, that could be difficult—and the main reason why you don’t want to go. But there are lots of apps that can help you get a complete workout at home, and Heath & Fitness is one of the most popular categories on the App Store. If you take a look at the listings, you’ll see that nearly every app is free—or so it would seem. In reality, the vast majority of fitness apps are only free to download but require an in-app purchase subscription be useful. Many don’t even function…

the mac never left, but it’s about to have a comeback

There’s never been a more exciting time to be a Mac user. And I say that as someone who’s been one for nearly 30 years now, ever since my dad brought home a Macintosh LC in 1991. I lived through the transition to PowerPC, the dark years of the nineties, and the move to both Mac OS X and Intel processors. Through all that time, the Mac has remained my workhorse. But in recent years, it often seemed as though the old stalwart had been overshadowed by the flashier iPhone and iPad lines, relegated to an afterthought in Apple’s mind. After this year’s WWDC, however, the Mac is looking more like the Apple product that’s poised to have a huge impact. As we consider the calendar of the next couple years, there is…

how to set up family sharing on your iphone, ipad, or mac

Apple introduced Family Sharing way back in iOS 8, but we wouldn’t be surprised if you ignored it so far. It allows you to share iCloud storage and purchases, but that comes with some caveats that have made it undesirable for many. The biggest problem is that, if you share iTunes and App Store purchases, then every purchase from every family member is always charged to the “organizer” account—family members literally have no way to make any purchases on their own. While Apple should definitely address that shortcoming, there are now far more reasons to enable Family Sharing than even a year ago. Apple’s new subscription services—Apple TV+, Apple News+, and Apple Arcade—all support Family Sharing at no additional cost. Apple Music can be shared for an extra $5 per month,…
