Apple may just have accidentally announced the month their Mac Pro releases

TwitterFacebook

Oops. Apple may have inadvertently announced a more precise launch time frame for its upcoming desktop powerhouse, the new Mac Pro. 

As noted by MacRumors, the Mac Pro section on Apple’s webpage has a little “Notify me” link. Previously, when you clicked on that link, you’d get a window saying the Mac Pro was “Coming September.”

This is no longer the case, as Apple has now changed that bit to say “Coming This Fall” — but it does instil hope that the new Pro will come sooner rather than…

IHOP annoys everyone again with another name change

TwitterFacebook

So we’re doing this again, huh, IHOP?

A year after the restaurant chain caused a stir by changing its name to “IHOb” to tease its new burgers, and experienced some pretty hilarious burns as a result, it’s right back to teasing a new name. 

But, this time, no one’s having it.

On Monday, IHOP shared the following tweet:

It’s hard to make sense of this because the chain actually reverted back to its original IHOP name only a month after the June 2018 “IHOb” stunt, even shuttering its “IHOb”…

TwitterFacebook

Let the speculation begin.

As expected, Google announced more details about the next version of Android, tentatively called “Android Q,” at its annual I/O developer conference.

Standout features in the software update include support for foldable phones and hardened privacy controls. All good things, but what everyone really wants to know is what the Q will stand for.

If Google follows past Android naming…
