  • At Gizmag, we often review brand spankin' new devices that sit on the cutting edge of technology. Other products we review are little more than incremental updates. And then there's the 2014 MacBook Air, a device that gives new meaning to the word "incremental."
  • Earlier this week we took a look at how the new 13-in MacBook Air compares to the same-sized MacBook Pro with Retina Display. But we don't want to leave the 11-in Air out of the fun. Let's see how its features and specs compare to the Microsoft Surface Pro 2.
  • Back in 2012, Montreal-based entrepreneurs Marty Algire and Corey Velan released a product known as the FixMeStick. It's a bootable USB device that detects and eliminates viruses in PCs ... and now a Mac version is in the pipe.
  • Apple's 2013 was, as the old song goes, a very good year.
