How To: Get your MacBook Pro to sleep in OS X Lion

Pre-OS X Lion, all I needed to do to put my 2008 MacBook Pro to sleep was close the lid. However, since upgrading Lion, I’ve noticed that it never really seemed to go to sleep anymore, especially when plugged in to a power source.

New transparent display means everyone at Starbucks will know you’re looking at porn

I know from watching countless hours of bad TV and movies that the future of touch displays is transparent sheets of glass that magically let you throw and resize images, all the while making annoying beeps as data readouts cascade across them, but I always thought we were still a good 15 years off from that. But check out this pretty sweet video of Samsung’s new 14 inch Transparent OLED Display Notebook, which appears to be very close to the future depicted in Minority... Read More
