Afraid of your new HomePod leaving unsightly rings on your wooden furniture? Grovermade’s new accessory may be the solution you seek.
Today, Oregon-based tech accessory manufacturer Grovermade launched the latest addition to its line of beautifully designed desktop solutions. Called the HomePod Stand, it’s essentially a base that sits underneath your shiny new HomePod, keeping the silicone away from your finished wood while also displaying it securely and attractively.
The stand sits underneath your HomePod like a coaster would, but don’t be mistaken — it isn’t a coaster, at least according to Grovermade:
The problem was straightforward: Apple has admitted the HomePod leaves a white ring on naturally finished wood, the same type of finish on our wood products. There are some easy fixes. You could use a wool felt pad, basically a glorified coaster, to solve the problem. But it didn’t sit right with our team. It was too easy. It felt more like a bandage than a real soluti…read more

Boot Camp Apple drivers won’t install on your Windows partition on your Mac? Here’s the fix!
Are you needing to install Windows on a partition on your Mac? As much as Apple tries to make it as simple as possible, sometimes errors do occur. Once such error is the ”Boot Camp is unsupported on this computer model” error. This is an error that occurs when you try to install the Apple provided Boot Camp drivers whilst running Windows.
The cause of the error
Force the installation of the Apple drivers
The cause of the error
The reason why this error occurs is because Mac you are using to run the Windows partition on is no longer supported by Apple (i.e. they say it’s too old!). Luckily for us, we can ignore what others deem as obsolete and force the installation of the drivers for the Apple specific hardware installed to run things like the camera, Wi-Fi, and bluetooth radios. Here’s how!

Apple has submitted a proposal to Unicode for emoji that will ”better represent individuals with disabilities.”
There may be a whole new set of emoji headed to your phones, tablets, and computers! Apple has submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium for emoji that would ”better represent individuals with disabilities.”
In it proposal, Apple points out one in seven people has some form of disability and suggests that emoji should better reflect that:
The current selection of emoji provides a wide array of representations of people, activities, and objects meaningful to the general public, but very few speak to the life experiences of those with disabilities. … Adding emoji emblematic to users’ life experiences helps foster a diverse culture that is inclusive of disability.
Some of the proposed emoji include the sign language gesture for ”deaf,” a person in a wheelchair, a prosthetic leg, and a service dog. You can check out the full list of proposed emoji — …read more
After processing fees, you’re looking at $89.95 for a year of movies.
MoviePass came under some heat earlier this month when it was discovered to be tracking its users’ location more closely than originally believed, and likely in an attempt to gloss over the bad press, the company’s lowering its subscription fee for new members.
For a limited time, you can sign up for MoviePass for just $6.95/month instead of the regular $9.95. MoviePass says this is ”limited time” offer, and it’s only available for new subscribers.
MoviePass bills memberships annually, meaning you’ll pay $89.95 all at once upon signing up (that includes a one-time $6.55 processing fee). A MoviePass membership lets you see one 2D movie every day for the entirety of your subscription, meaning you could theoretically pay $89.95 and see one movie in theaters every single day.
Even if you’re not at the theaters at every waking hour, this is still a pretty sweet deal considering most movie tickets cost around $10 – $…read more
