Apple s newest computers will no longer have to bear the title of the first MacBooks not to receive Consumer Reports coveted seal of approval.After working with the company over the holidays to address irregular battery life tests ranging from an extremely inconsistent 3.75 to to 19.5 hours, the publication has re-run tests to much better effect.The new tests were run after Apple issued a fix to update what it referred to as an obscure and intermittent bug triggered by the publication s policy of turning off browser caching for testing.The move, which the site implements on all the laptop it tests, is designed to simulate real world browser use by loading different pages.With the updated software, the three MacBook Pros in our labs all performed well, with one model running 18.75 hours on a charge.We tested each model multiple times using the new software, following the same protocol we apply to hundreds of laptops every year.

We re coming up on one year since the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive were released, and whether you re a diehard fan or an ongoing skeptic there seems to be one important question everyone wants answered: How are sales?After all, everyone loves a meaningless battle between two corporations.Oculus has been tight-lipped about sales figures though, and HTC hasn t been much better—only confirming in November that sales were much higher than 140,000.And so we turn to Epic founder Tim Sweeney, who held a lengthy interview with Glixel this week.He doesn t give hard numbers, but does say that PC-oriented VR a.k.a.not PlayStation VR or mobile solutions like GearVR has sold around half a million headsets.
