Re: Apple says sorry for MacBook throttling

Only rumors! But we should expect to see substantially more and diverse hardware in 2H18 from Apple. Don't pull the trigger on that iPad yet! :thumb:

Re: Anyone have a Ipad Pro 10.5?

Don't have a 10.5" model, but I have a 9.7" iPad Pro. The thinner bezels look great on the 10.5, and the A10X chip is still plenty fast for whatever you throw at it. That being said, it is widely...

Re: Dryer Sheets?

I've got a washer/dryer unit, so can't use dryer sheets. That concept doesn't exist in the UAE anyway, so liquid is the way to go. :banana:
