Future Macs may sport even more haptic technology — Future Macs may sport even more haptic technology, or haptics, a tactile feedback technology that takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user. The Magic Mouse 2 already does this to some degree, thanks to its Force Touch technology.

SpamSieve — I mentioned this software yesterday and today I see a full review of it on Macworld: “C-Command Software’s SpamSieve has been around since 2002 and is hands down the best spam filtering software for Mac. Unlike the brute-force filters on servers, SpamSieve learns from your email. If you get lots of emails that contain certain words, SpamSieve learns that these are normal, and sends them to your inbox. However, if spam gets through, you just select one or more messages and press a keyboard shortcut to tell SpamSieve that they are spam; the app learns from that too. And it’s incredibly accurate…” It costs US$30 (about NZ$45).
