The best remote access app for the Mac and iOS, Screens, just updated to version 4 (free upgrade). While version 3 was still my go-to app for accessing remote Macs from iOS and my laptop, Screens 4 shows they are not stopping.

Six Colors: Apple updates MacBook »

Apple announced a new color for the new MacBook lineup, as well as a processor bump and better battery life. The new color, Rose Gold, matches the other devices that sport the same color. Jason Snell, Six Colors, explains the other small changes, including the CPU and graphics updates, the lack of Thunderbolt 3, and the “real-world” performance you might feel with this new model.

For anyone considering a new MacBook as their new computer, this is probably an update you’ll welcome with open arms (and wallets).
