Ultra-powerful iMac Pro revealed, plus faster MacBooks and macOS High Sierra!

The new iMac features the next-generation compute core and up to 16GB of on-package high-bandwidth memory.

There were reports the new iPad would ditch the home button and there were also reports of a bezel-free device, aside from the top of the display where the FaceTime camera sits but alas, not this time. Also, the MacBook Pro's ports have Thunderbolt 3 (TB3) technology built in, which takes advantage of the faster throughput with TB3 drives and peripherals like external 5K displays.

To see how what the Radeon Pro 570 could handle, I set the iMac display to the highest possible 3200 by 1800 pixel (you can go higher with a third party utility) and the Unigine Valley benchmark to Ultra high quality and 8 times anti-aliasing. Now they're 43% brighter and can now produce up to a billion different colors, which you're sure to notice.

Houston Astros place ace Dallas Keuchel on disabled list again
But another impressive streak is still alive: Dallas Keuchel has yet to suffer a loss this season through 11 starts. Likely knowing this well in advance, the Astros sent back down Guduan to call up Dayan Diaz from the minors.

Clearly, iMac Pro is the most powerful Mac you can own - until at least Apple decides to update the display-less Mac Pro in 2018.

"The latest iMacs start at $1,099 for the 21.5" models and$1,799 for the 27" models. The Kaby Lake-based MacBook Pro series was much asked for and Apple did deliver it during the recent WWDC 2017.

Even the much-neglected MacBook Air range gets a modest speed boost with a faster Intel processor - though the company barely gave it a mention.

FDA Requests Reformulated Oxymorphone Product Removed for Abuse Risk
Opana ER (oxymorphone hydrochloride) was first approved by the FDA in 2006 for use by people with moderate or severe chronic pain. The move follows an FDA advisory committee vote of 18-8 in March concluding the drug's risks were greater than the benefits.

Another thing that's stayed the same is price: The MacBook will still start at $1,299 - which will get you a model with a entry-level Core m3 chip and 256 GB of storage - and reach up to $1,949 as you go up the specs ladder.

There are a number of updates in this new version of macOS.

There will also be a new Drag and Drop feature, allowing you to move text, photos or files from one app to another, and Apple has also redesigned the App Switcher to make changing apps quicker, requiring just a swipe. Apple did not specify if these have been updated, either. It also automatically blocks those annoying autoplay ads and prevents advertisements from tracking you across the web - features we've been hoping would be standard in browsers for a while now.

Did Donald Glover Announce The Final Childish Gambino Album?
And while this is sad news no matter what way you spin it, don't lose total hope. Donald Glover has explained why he is planning to call time on Childish Gambino .

Most of the products announced by Apple have been pitched squarely at the professional end of the market. Mail will use less disk space and offer split-screen viewing for easier composing. That means it should feel a bit clickier and more responsive than before. It offers faster performance and better security with crash protection and built-in encryption. They're high value customers for Apple and its third-party ecosystem, as they buy not just computers but gear and software to cover their workflows - or gaming setups. Comparing Windows apples with Apple pears is hard as the value to users lies in the combination of software and device integration, and not just the hardware itself.
