This week we have a couple of big leaks out of Apple that give us a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming iOS 13 and macOS 10.15, including the impending death of iTunes as Apple splits the iconic music player up.

Apple has released updated 2019 MacBook Pros with faster processors and upgraded keyboard, and we talk about what's changed and how much they cost.

We also go over the keyboard woes Apple has experienced, along with the new Keyboard Service Program. Apple will now replace your faulty keyboard up to 4 years after purchase.

Finally, I answer your questions about the OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone, how my Tesla Model 3 is holding up, how to pick between older flagships and new mid-range smartphones, and more!

3dr solo drone

It’s no argument that one of the biggest gadget sensations right now. That’s understandable, what with the cool-factor combination of flying a radio-controlled craft and the ability to record footage from places you’d never be able to take your DSLR. Be it for casual fun or business purposes, they’re fun toys (or tools, depending on how you look at it.) Just be sure to be aware of your local laws regarding the flying of drones.

2016 Nissan GTR Gold anniversary

This is the 2016 Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Gold Edition. No, when looking at the Premium model, the Anniversary edition isn't any faster, but like the gold Apple Watch Edition, it's much more exclusive than the standard offering. In fact, Nissan will produce just 30 of these for the US. The color is a special hue that they're calling "Silica Brass," and other details include a color-matched VIN plate, and a plaque inside the vehicle that commemorates this edition. Aside from that, you'll find all the goodness here that you find in the rest of the 2016 GT-R lineup, including all-wheel drive, build-in driving recorder, 3.8-liter 550 horsepower twin turbo V6 engine, and 11-speaker Bose audio system with noise cancellation. For for pricing, but you can be sure it'll cost $1,000 more than the $101,770 Premium edition, plus a $1,595 destination charge.

Apple CarPlay zombies

The following article is a sponsored post by AutoAnything.

When the undead rise up and take to the streets, it will already be too late for you to upgrade your vehicle’s power and efficiency. So, while the zombies are still safely nestled in their graves, it’s time to think about how to prepare your vehicle for escape.

Ask yourself: can your car tell you where you need to go and get you there in the fastest and most efficient way possible? Can you control your in-cabin features without taking your hands off the wheel? Chances are you answered no. Fear not, fellow future zombie heroes! We have technology on our side, and with the brains of Apple CarPlay and the brawn of a power programmer, our vehicles can be completely zombie-proof in no time.

2015 Chevy Volt

GM is set to debut the next-generation Chevy Volt at the North American International Auto Show, which is just over five months away, taking place in Detroit in January 2015. The 2016 Chevy Volt will be the first redesign for the game-changing electric car, and details are obviously scarce since the company is going for the element of surprise. However, this morning they gave us a peek at the next design. Above you see what appears to be the rear liftgate, lit up by a sunset. My wish list? As a Chevy Volt owner, I'd like to see the 2016 model pick up a 50-mile electric range, 50 miles-per-gallon in range-extending mode, and a redesigned battery pack that will allow for three seats in the rear. We'll know more in a few months!
