Continuity Keypad adds a beautiful phone dialer to OS X Yosemite

By Timothy Reavis on Nov 13, 2014

Out of all the features that Apple introduced with OS X Yosemite, Continuity is one of the most convenient and useful. With its ability to handoff apps between devices, make and receive phone calls, and send SMS messages from the desktop, Continuity has become one of the most-used features of OS X Yosemite. But despite its newfound call-handling features, Yosemite lacks a dialer for quickly making phone calls to numbers not in your address book, and that’s where Continuity Keypad comes into play.

Sword-slashing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance hits Mac App Store

By Christian Zibreg on Sep 25, 2014

TransGaming, which specializes in video game portability technology, on Thursday released Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in the Mac App Store.

Originally developed by Kojima Productions and Platinum Games, Revengeance is technically still part of the Metal Gear universe, with one notable change: instead of the hide-and-seek approach that the original Metal Gear Solid popularized more than a decade ago, Revengeance files as a hack’n’slash game that puts you in the shoes of a cyborg ninja named Raiden.
