Stop freaking out over the 12-inch MacBook Air’s missing MagSafe port

A new report has recently revealed more details about one of the most interesting products of the year, the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air that is expected to offer a super-slim design and lack a huge number of ports that laptop users have come to expect. In fact, many people have been surprised by the first renders of the 12-inch version, which only show two connectivity options for the device including a multi-purpose USB-C port and a headphone hack. What really seems to be freaking people out, though, is the potential lack of a MagSafe adapter. More →

Video: Microsoft fires shots at Apple yet again in its latest ad

Microsoft is back to its old tricks again. The company still seems to be holding a grudge from back in the days of Apple’s “I’m a Mac” ad campaign, and it targets Apple every chance it gets in its various advertisements and marketing efforts. Last week, Microsoft informed us that its cheap $100 Lumia phone and a bunch of bundled accessories and services are a better buy than Apple’s iPhone 6, and now Microsoft is back to convince us that Lenovo’s latest ultra-thin Windows laptop is a better machine than the MacBook Air.
