Cool Shit: Netflix has Launched in SA

In what was the most chilled launch in history, Netflix kind of just appeared in South Africa. I would imagine some techie just got an email and flicked a switch and that was that.

The time for Netflix and Chill is NOW! You get a 1 Month free trial to see if it actually works.

Compared to the US version, some shows are missing, but do you really care? ShowMax is the bastard child of DStv so we can give that one a skip.

Oh, one note, you’ll be charged in US Dollars because our currency is about as stable as your mother in law.

Apple’s Magic Trackpad 2 and Magic Keyboard 2 Are Beautiful

I don’t care much for the Magic Mouse but wow, the Trackpad and Keyboard look so good!

They have build in lightning ports for charging so no more AA batteries. They pair automatically when plugged in with a Lightning cable, a handy feature.

The Trackpad has Apple’s Force Touch (Still a terrible name) build in bring that feature to existing MacBooks as well as iMacs.

New toys do not come cheaply though:

Magic Keyboard is available starting today for $99 (US). Magic Mouse 2 is available starting today for $79 (US). And the Magic Trackpad 2 is available starting today for $129 (US).

I suppose I better start saving because I think those will look great on my desk.

All iMacs Now Come With Retina Displays

Today Apple announced that it will be including 4K displays in the 21.5 inch iMac and 5K displays in all of the 27 inch iMacs.

In Apple’s own words:

 The updated iMacs also feature more powerful processors and graphics, two Thunderbolt® 2 ports and new storage options that make the high-performance Fusion Drive even more affordable.

Sounds like a good update all around!

iPhone 6S and 6S Plus Drop Test

This makes me so sad. There are millions in the world waiting for the new iPhones and then you get some asshole that gets them on the first day and ruins them.

I’m impressed at the beating they took! Still sad in the end.

Someone Made a Hardware Emoji Keyboard

Tom Scott is one of my favourite Youtubers. He always seems to come up with something random or something “you might not know.”

This time he has made a massive keyboard with an individual key for every different emoji!

Check out his video embedded below or click here to see it if you’re on Apple News.
