There hasn’t been a properly new Mac Pro for a very long time. The original Mac OS X workstation for creative professionals — video editors, commercial photographers, 3D animators — was released in 2006, and the giant cheese grater suffered a ploddingly slow upgrade cycle that meant that plenty of its former fanboys jumped ship to iMacs, MacBooks Pro or Windows boxes. But the Mac Pro is back, it’s better, and now there’s actually no reason not to buy one.
Windows 8.1′s recent update was a subtle but effective boost. Windows Phone‘s 8.1 power up follows the same cues. It’s not mind-blowing, it’s not world-changing, it’s nothing to jump around and scream about, but it turns Windows Phone into something it’s never quite been before: an OS that’s totally good enough.
Dennis Muren is one of the founding team members of Industrial Light and Magic, Lucasfilm’s effects team since the days of A New Hope. With eight Academy Awards to his name, Giz AU had the chance to sit down with Muren at Lucasfilm in San Francisco to talk about the special content available on the Blu-ray releases, as well as what it was like to invent an entire special effects industry.
Matthew Wood is a 21 year veteran of Skywalker Sound, tasked with bringing all six Star Wars films up to a 6.1 channel audio mix for the Blu-ray release. We spoke with Wood about the process of remastering audio, working with Ben Burtt, and how some very Australian sounds became the ‘voice’ of the Geonosians.
With the release of Star Wars on Blu-ray this week, you’ll find three collections in stores to choose from. Only the nine-disc complete collection comes with any bonus content, and while some may want to avoid buying any prequel EVAR, owning unseen footage like Greedo’s real dialogue or a wampa attack on the Hoth base might make this unmissable. We went hands on with the extra content to see what’s what.
Sonos has been loved by network audio streaming freaks for years. But its products have generally lived outside the realm of the more casual buyer. Now Sonos is updating its branding and introducing the Play:3, a smaller unit that still packs plenty of punch. At $419 RRP it’s also in the right place to steal a lot of attention from the iPhone docking market.
While the 3D Wimbledon broadcasts didn’t make it to Australian televisions, Sony and Hoyts got together to bring the Men’s Final to a few Australian theatres. As someone who attended a Wimbledon final in the flesh exactly 10 years ago, I thought I’d head along to see how close big screen 3D tennis gets you to the real thing.
McTiVia, a new set-top box now on sale in Harvey Norman stores, is looking to take the world of computer screen sharing and VPN geo-location tricks and make them as casual as using any other standard set-top box. With drawcards like easy access to Hulu and Netflix and an easily portable form-factor, McTiVia is hard to ignore.
iPhones are fragile beasts, but you don’t just want to put any old cover on a beloved companion. iCoverLover is an Aussie site that’s offering a pretty cool selection of options, and offered at uber cheap prices. We can’t vouch for quality, but the range looks worth a click.
