Tech Preview: Rethinking The New MacBook Air (2018)
  |  @   |  

Keyboard shot of the MacBook Air 2018.

A mere fortnight ago, GoD’s The Drill Down podcast dug deeply into the toys that Apple showed off during its Fall hardware event. The long-awaited MacBook Air and the surprising new form factor and functionality of new iPad Pro were the showstoppers; and while both have received generally favorable reviews, something doesn’t quite sit right about the new laptop.

Perhaps it’s the form factor, which is only moderately refreshed. Or perhaps it’s the fact that since 2015 we’ve seen the  MacBook 12″ as a successor, or “heir to the old Air,” so to speak, with its improved slender wedge shape, its extreme battery life, and its incredible portability. The new MacBook Air ups its direct predecessor in the categories — it’s clearly a better computer than the previous version — and people have been waiting for the Air to come back with Retina display, TouchID, and the larger track pad — all necessary standards on modern MacBook computers.

World Of Warcraft Chronicle, Vol. 2
By Chris Metzen, Matt Burns, Robert Brooks, Peter Lee
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 14, 2017

While there have been tons of video games over the years with deep lore and history, few can lay claim to the size and mass of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft universe. Last year, we were given a deeper look into the history of the game’s world Azeroth with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 1.

Now, Blizzard Entertainment and Dark Horse Publishing are getting ready to dive back in with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 2. While there have been many novels and comics to spawn from the rich history of Warcraft, retired creative director and father of Warcraft lore Chris Metzen with the Chronicle series gives us a more revealing peek into the lore from the man himself. Volume Two like before will also feature art by fan favorites Peter Lee, Joseph Lacroix, and Alex Horley. Metzen is joined once again by Matt Burns and Robert Brooks in authoring.

In 2015, IDW Publishing launched an ongoing comic book series for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, based on the works of Douglas Adams. This was to be a lead-up to the BBC America television series of the same name, which debuted last year. After the first miniseries, the TV show’s executive producer Arvind Ethan David, who had been serving as co-editor on the comic, took over writing duties for the next arc “A Spoon Too Short,” with art by Ilias Kyriazis and colors by Charlie Kirchoff. This next wave also had the distinction of having Max Landis, the television show’s writer and executive producer, on board as executive producer.

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Fates Warning’s third album, the progressive metal masterpiece Awaken the Guardian. In celebration of the occasion last year, founding (and current) guitarist Jim Matheos reassembled the album’s classic line-up, including singer John Arch, for two festival shows. Now, the entire recordings from those shows have been compiled for an upcoming CD/DVD and Blu-ray titled Awaken the Guardian Live, and Metal Blade Records has released a preview of it.

Check out the preview of the upcoming live release (video and streaming audio) here below of the song “Fata Morgana.”

The Awaken the Guardian Live Blu-ray and 2-CD/1-DVD are available now for preorder now, and will released on April 28, 2017. Metal Blade is also offering some limited edition variations.
