WWDC high points, games sale, US politics and Apple


Dr Mac’s high points from Apple’s WWDC — Apple held its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) last week in San Francisco. It may well be the greatest show on earth for Apple fans, at least since the demise of Macworld Expo (officially on hiatus, but we all know what that means). Over the course of this year’s two-hour keynote, Apple previewed major updates to all four of its platforms: iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS. Here are Bob LeVitus’ high points

Ten games — Many modern Mac gaming classics can be had for just a couple bucks apiece, and even new games have significant markdowns. Macworld has gone through the lists and picked out 10 great deals for 10 totally great games from the Steam Summer Sale, ensuring you get awesome experiences without breaking the bank. In fact, all but two of these games are less than $10 apiece, and the pricier games still see huge discounts from the standard prices.

Republican Nancy Pelosi expresses disappointment; Clinton and Warren weigh in — Engaging in a bit of political posturing this week, US House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered a – surprisingly condescending – takedown of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s fundraiser for House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican candidates. Hillary Clinton’s tech platform backs Apple’s positions on encryption, privacy, innovation, patents, education, but Warren, also a Democrat [and a very worthy one, too], criticises Apple’s retail dominance.
