Watch Pac-Man Running on MacBook Pro Touch Bar [Video]



New 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro units with Touch Bar may lack ports, have poor battery life or suffer from graphics issues. However, for the enthusiasts who use the machines for fun, these problems seem to be not important.

What’s even more interesting is that the game is playable!

Last week, an application called Touch Bar Piano was released. This app turns the Touch Bar into a piano. Who knows, maybe this is tiny OLED panel is indeed a huge improvement.

Below you can watch a short video showing the old-timer running on the MacBook Pro Touch Bar.

Bell also notes that the Touch Bar itself is a useful feature.

Doom runs on pretty much everything… but can it run on the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar?

Side note, as ridiculous (ly amazing) as Doom is running on the Touch Bar is… the HUD is equally great

Apple unveiled the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro at the media event on October 27th. Currently, the company is shipping the devices to first lucky owners.

iPhone 7 Beats Galaxy Note 7 in Real-Life Speed Test [Video]



Apple’s iPhone 7 is faster than the Galaxy Note 7 in real life. The results of the recent speed test performed by PhoneBuff prove that the newly-released phone is much better at opening apps, editing videos, and keeping open games and applications active in the background.

PhoneBuff performed a test consisting of a set of typical everyday tasks. The final result of the iPhone 7 is 1 minute 40 seconds, whereas that of the Galaxy Note 7 is equal to 3 minutes 14 seconds. This difference becomes even more surprising if we take a look at the specs of both devices. Apple’s iPhone 7 features an A10 Fusion chip and 2GB of RAM, while the Galaxy Note 7 has an Exynos 8890 CPU and 4GB of RAM.

Currently, the iPhone 7 is available for purchase on several markets, while the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been paused due to the problem with the exploding battery of the device.
