Apple's free My Photo Stream service will shut down on July 26th
Apple plans to shut down its My Photo Stream service on July 26th, 2023, the company announced on Friday. The free service has been available since the release of iCloud in 2011. You can use My Photo Stream to upload the last 30 days of images and videos - up to a limit of 1,000 - from your Apple devices to iCloud. My Photo Stream predates iCloud Photos and gave Apple users a way to access their images and video clips on more than one device. Notably, content uploaded to iCloud through My Photo Stream do not count against your iCloud storage cap, though they're not saved at full resolution.

In a support document spotted by MacRumors, Apple says My Photo Stream will stop automatically uploading photos to the company's servers on June 26th, 2023. At that point, your photos and videos will remain on iCloud for 30 days until the official shutdown on July 26th. Since every image and video uploaded to iCloud through My Photo Stream is stored in its original format and resolution on at least one of your Apple devices, you won't lose any cherished memories as part of the shutdown process. That said, if you want to have access to a specific image on a particular device, Apple recommends you save it to that device's Photo Library bef

Apple's AirPods Max are $99 off at Amazon
Apple's high-end, over-ear headphones may be a bit over the top, but they are one of the best pieces of audio gear for Apple enthusiasts. The catch is that you have to be willing to shell out quite a bit of cash for them, which is why we always recommend waiting for a sale like the one happening now ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. Apple's AirPods Max are $99 off at Amazon right now, bringing them down to $450. That's about $20 more than their record-low price, and most colors are on sale as well, making now a good time to buy if you've had your eye on them.

There's a lot to like about the AirPods Max if you get get beyond their price. They have a unique, comfortable design that's more attractive than most high-end headphones, and they have excellent audio quality. Those who like "natural" sound from their cans will appreciate what the AirPods Max bring to the table, and we like that they also support spatial audio. Active noise cancellation is similarly solid, and there's a button on the headphones that let you sw

Get Apple's vaunted AirPods for $99 just in time for summer

The second-gen AirPods can be yours for just $99 on Amazon, a solid $30 discount on the usual price. They're missing some of the features found on the next-gen models (such as Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking and water resistance), but remain fantastic earbuds, especially at this cut-rate price.

If you want those extra goodies, the third-gen AirPods are on sale for $159. That's a mere $10 discount, but may be worth the money for discerning listeners, as our pals at Macworld say the newer model offers better sound, longer battery life, and a more refined design.

Finally, if you're looking for the best possible audio (and stellar active noise cancellation) out of your Apple earbuds, the second-gen AirPods Pro are on sale for $199—a much more tangible $50 discount.

These are all fantastic products and all of them are going for fantastic prices right now. You won't be disappointed bobbing your head poolside with any of them. There's no indication when these sales will disappear, so don't miss out

Naughty Dog says its Last of Us multiplayer game needs more time in the oven
One of the most notable omissions from this week's PlayStation Showcase was anything from Naughty Dog. Many (including yours truly) expected the studio to reveal more details about its Last of Us multiplayer game, but we'll need to wait a little longer to learn more about that title.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Naughty Dog said "we're incredibly proud of the job our studio has done thus far, but as development has continued, we've realized what is best for the game is to give it more time." As such, it now seems unlikely that we'll hear much about the game during Summer Game Fest (where Naughty Dog offered a first peek at concept art from the project last year) on June 8th or on June 14th, which is the 10th anniversary of The Last Of Us arriving on PS3.

Love building weird vehicles in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom? Go play Besiege

It's called Besiege, and I'm willing to bet the mechanics of this little indie game inspired at least some of Zelda's Ultrahand functionality — that, and the way Breath of the Wild players made some of their own hacked-together vehicles to exploit the game's physics engine. Besiege was fully released in 2020, but it was available in early access for years before that. And its modular gadget-making action will look familiar to anyone who's spent hours sticking wheels and fans on carts in Hyrule.

Microsoft PowerToys adds Mouse Without Borders for multi-PC control

Both utilities are packaged within PowerToys 0.70.0. (At press time, Microsoft had published the release notes for version 0.70, though the utility itself balked at upgrading to that version.)

Mouse Without Borders has been around for a long time — since 2018, when it was originally released as a Microsoft Garage incubator project. Five years later, Microsoft has polished the app up to .NET 7 standards and brought it into PowerToys, which includes over a dozen utilities that Windows itself doesn't.

Mouse Without Borders may have some real benefits in a world where workers work from home on both a work and personal PC. The concept is simple enough. Provided that both PCs allow you to load the Mouse Without Borders app, you can simply mouse from one PC to the other. When you drag the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen, a PC with multiple monitors simply moves the cursor from one display to the next. With Mouse Without Borders, the cursor moves from one computer to the next. It's as simple as that. Furthermore, you can also share the Windows clipboard between PCs, even transferring small files (under 100MB) between them!
