How to refresh the tiny tab icons in Safari when they start disappearing
Monday, 16 September 2019 12:00

The wee little icon that appears for most websites in Safari tabs when you have Safari > Preferences > Tabs > Show Website Icons in Tabs enabled is called a favicon. These micro-badges can help you identify a site by icon, instead of by tab name or other details.

Sometimes these tab icons and the similar ones in the bookmarks list go missing. You’ll see a generic globe symbol or even something that looks broken. A few years ago, I provided advice to reset the state of favicons, but Apple changed Safari’s storage of these little drawings in the interim.

MSI's GE65 Raider Review: A little thick, but a lot fast
Monday, 16 September 2019 11:00

MSI’s GE65 Raider is proof positive of how far gaming laptop performance has come. Just two years ago, a top-end gaming laptop would run on a quad-core 7th-gen CPU. The GE65 Raider doubles the core count with its 9th-gen Core i7-9880H chip.

Real-time ray tracing support? The GE65 Raider has that, too, with its full-power GeForce RTX 2070.

All this, mind you, weighs just over five pounds. This much power at this weight comes with a compromise, though, which we’ll get to later. First up, the full specs:

PDF Expert 7 review: Must-have document utility for iOS now offers pro subscription
Monday, 16 September 2019 10:00

There was a time when buying software meant using it as long as you’d like — that is, assuming one could avert their gaze from the allure of upgrades with cool new features or OS compatibility fixes. However, modern developers have found in-app purchases and subscriptions to be a more sustainable form of revenue in the long run.

Although I prefer the old way of doing business, companies like Readdle have found a way to successfully evolve from paid apps to subscriptions without raising the ire of longtime users who helped get them this far.

Free is the new paid

After debuting on iPad in 2010, PDF Expert has lived up to its name as the premiere iOS app for working with PDF documents on the go. And there’s absolutely no reason not to own it now, because version 7.0 of the app is free. That’s right, no more up-front purchase, nor in-app upgrades.
