Weekend Highlights: Apple's Friday surprise is a "multi-year partnership with Opra Winfrey" to "create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world"; WSJ cites sources claiming Apple will stay with less expensive LCD screens for future iPhones "as consumers balk at iPhone X price tag"—more in our Apple/Macintosh section; Gene Munster thinks Apple is about 5 years behind Netflix and further ahead with original content than we think; Bare Feats compares Direct X on Win 10 vs Metal 2 on macOS 10.13.5; Lory Gil reviews Airfoil for Mac; Jonny Evans ponders whether or not Apple has a hidden meaning behind naming the next macOS after a desert; GrayKey, a thorn in Apple's side, finds workaround to new security measures; Apple releases four (1, 2, 3, 4) advertisements called "Behind the Mac", some find the sudden focus on Macs "strange"; Apple "most awarded brand" at AICP Awards.
