Bleeding Edge TV 501: How to upgrade RAM in Apple Mac Pro (late 2013)

In this episode I show you how to open up the new Apple Mac Pro (late 2013), remove the included RAM, and install your own in order to give it a nice RAM upgrade. It's not too hard at all, and can save you a bunch of money when compared to paying Apple for extra RAM when placing your order. As you can see, the Mac Pro RAM upgrade process just takes a couple of minutes, and doesn't require any tools. Super easy! Here's where I buy all my RAM.

Apple has these on backorder for about 8 weeks, but if you order a Mac Pro from B&H Photo, you should be able to get one shipped out much sooner, if not immediately, and tax-free.

Bleeding Edge TV 478: Sensus Touch Case for iPhone

We got a look at the Canopy Sensus Touch Case, and walked away impressed. The Sensus Touch Case gives iPhone users 10-point touch input along the back and sides of the device, which means you can do things like play games by swiping along the back of the iPhone, leaving the display free and clear of your fingers. You can also do things like snap images by tapping the side of the phone, or zoom in and out of objects with a slide of your finger. Expect to see the case launch later this summer, priced somewhere between $59 and $99.
