Apple adds another ball to juggle, said to enter feature film business. With hardware updates lagging, OSes to finish, are there too many balls in the air, or is Apple able to juggle 'em all? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

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.

Today's MacUpdate Promo offers 70% savings on AweEraser for just $8.99. "AweEraser is a secure Mac data eraser. It can securely and permanently erase data from hard drive/storage media, permanently delete Mac files, wipe hard drive, and erase already deleted data under Mac OS. It also offers tools to help you batch remove applications on your Mac and clean up browsers histories, caches, privacy, etc."

  • "iPad Pro: The Missing Workflow" ["But the best news is that Apple has, finally, some competition when it comes to User Experience. For example, tablets that run Microsoft or Google software let users slide the current window to show portions of another one below, making it easier to select parts of a document and drop them into another. (Come to think of it, the sliding Notifications 'drawer' on the iPad and iPhone isn't too far off.) This competition might spur Apple to move the already very successful iPad into authentically 'Pro' territory."] Monday Note 1:22 PM
