Suggested March 2024 Speck’s Presidio Cases Offer Scratch And Drop Protection For Your New Macbook Pro

Apart from the colorful array of iPhone case offerings Speck is known for, they’re also fabled for their popular transparent MacBook Pro cases, which are built to prevent scuffing across your computer’s metallic surface while you travel with it.

Speck is now announcing a new breed of Presidio-based transparent cases for the all-new 2024 MacBook Pro at CES 2023, which for the first time, brings as much as four feet of drop protection to Apple’s premium notebook computers thanks to the company’s patented Impactium material.

Speck’s Presidio cases have been available for the iPhone for quite some time, and we went hands-on with the Grip series of the Presidio case lineup, but the transparent cases allow you to see through the case material to get a good view of the precision industrial engineering Apple is known for as it lurks inside the case.

Like all Speck MacBook Pro cases in the past, they will be of a two-piece snap-on design. One half covers the keyboard side of the notebook, while the other half covers the display side of the notebook. When closed, the case provides 360º protection of the computer, which keeps it safe in your bag, or if it accidentally gets knocked off your desk somehow… (rowdy kids?)

Presidio Clear for MacBook is made with Impactium Clear, a dynamic transparent material that absorbs and disperses shock upon impact and protects MacBooks from drops up to 4 feet. Impactium Clear is co-molded into a raised edge around the perimeter of the case that also provides a secure, no-slip grip, so you’re less likely to drop your device. The case’s dual-layer, two-piece design easily clips onto the MacBook.

Speck’s Presidio case for the 2024 MacBook Pro will come in both clear and onyx color options, with the latter being a darker ‘smoked’ option for those who aren’t much for the clear alternative. It will be available for the 13-inch variant of the computer beginning in February of this year for $99, and options for all other models of MacBook will be released throughout the calendar year for approximately the same or similar price.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Speck case without the UV protection that it has built in, which resists the yellow colorization that can occur in similar cases due to aging and Sun exposure, so that’s a plus too.

Speck brings new iPhone cases too

In addition to the new cases for Apple’s 2024 MacBook Pro, Speck says updated Presidio Show cases are coming to the iPhone case lineup as well.

The black version of the Presidio Show is already available on Speck’s website and looks great with the Jet Black iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, but additional color options are coming in the future that compliment Apple’s other smartphone colors, including: Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver.

Thanks to the Impactium material, these cases are good for drops of up to 10 feet, all while giving you a clear window into the precision device being cradled within. Their UV protection, which is built into the transparent material, also helps them to resist yellowing over time.

Presidio Show was thoughtfully designed with the new iPhone 7 & 7 Plus in mind. The case features Speck’s Impactium Shock Barrier around the perimeter that provides 10-foot drop protection while the completely clear back shows off the phone’s design. Presidio Show comes in black, and will soon be available in gold, rose gold and silver, to perfectly match the different colors of the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus. 

The iPhone 7 version of the case will set you back $40, but the bigger brother version for the iPhone 7 Plus will cost you $45.

10 Fixes For Macbook Pro Overheating (Tips To Prevent It)

It’s natural for a MacBook Pro or any Mac to become warm during normal use. But, if your MacBook is running very hot, it’s probably not okay.

There are many possible reasons out there. In this article, I’m going to show you some common causes, along with practical solutions on how to fix the MacBook Pro overheating issue.

I’ve been using MacBook Pros for ten years and have experienced this problem many times even on my new MacBook Pro. Hopefully, you’ll be able to solve the overheating problem by applying some of the techniques listed below.

But first…

Why Does Mac Overheating Matter?

Nobody is comfortable working on an overly heated computer. It’s a psychological thing: We tend to be worried and panic when it happens. In reality, the main consequence is that your hardware (CPU, hard drive, etc.) can get damaged when exposed to constant overheating. Typical symptoms of this include slowdown, freezing, and other performance issues.

Even worse, your MacBook could shut down automatically if the temperature is really high. This can be both a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that it protects your hardware from potential damage. The bad thing is that it can cause data loss.

How to Know Whether Your MacBook is Overheating or Not?

Frankly, there is no definitive way to know if your MacBook is just getting hot or overheating. The best way is to trust your instincts. When your Mac warms up to a point that makes you uncomfortable, it’s probably overheating.

Another way to quickly validate your judgment is by looking up the CleanMyMac Menu. You’ll know if it shows a “High disk temperature” warning.

When your Mac is overheating, CleanMyMac pops up this warning.

By the way, CleanMyMac is a fantastic Mac Cleaner app that allows you to free up memory, remove unused apps, disable unnecessary login items, plugins, etc. which could help ease overheating issues and improve the overall performance of your Mac. Read our detailed review for more.

You might have been told to use a third-party app such as iStat or smcFanControl to monitor your Mac system stats, CPU temperature, or manage fan speed. Personally, I think that’s not a good idea for two reasons. First, they may not be accurate as you think. Here’s what Apple officially said in a support ticket:

“…these utilities are not measuring the external case temperature. The actual case temperature is much lower. Never use third-party applications to diagnose possible hardware issues.”

Secondly, fan speed control software actually has the potential to damage your MacBook. Because your Mac knows how to adjust the fan speed on its own when needed, manually overriding the speed setting could cause problems.

MacBook Pro Overheating: 10 Possible Causes & Fixes

Please note: the solutions below apply to a Mac that is still operational when it heats up. If your MacBook Pro shuts down itself due to overheating and won’t turn on, wait for a couple of minutes until it cools off and then restart the machine.

1. Your Mac’s Got Malware

Yes, Macs can get spyware and malware. Although macOS has integrated security protection against malware, it isn’t perfect. Plenty of junk crapware and phishing scam software targets Mac users by bundling useless apps or redirecting you to fake websites. Apple names a few here. While it’s unlikely they cause serious system issues, they will tax your system resources, which can lead to overheating.

How to Fix It: Remove Malware.

Unfortunately, this isn’t as easy as it sounds because it’s unrealistic to manually review each app and file you’ve stored on your MacBook Pro. The best option is to use an antivirus software like Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac.

2. Runaway Apps

Runaway apps, in other words, are third-party apps that demand more system resources (especially CPUs) than they should. These apps are either poorly developed or caught in a loop, which can drain battery power and CPU resources. When that happens, it’s just a matter of time before your MacBook starts overheating.

How to Fix It: Pinpoint the “Culprit” via Activity Monitor.

Here’s how it works:

3. Softer Surfaces

How often do you use your Mac laptop on a pillow or on your bed? What’s comfortable for you may not be wise for your MacBook. It’s a bad idea to put your Mac on a softer surface like that, as there will be inadequate air circulation under and around the computer. Even worse, because the fabric essentially absorbs the heat, it will make your Mac even hotter.

How to Fix It: Adjust Your Computer Habits.

Remember, sometimes the best solution is also the easiest. Place your Mac on a stable work surface. The four rubber feet on the bottom will ensure there is enough air circulation to dissipate the heat your Mac generates.

You may also want to get a laptop stand (recommendation: Rain Design mStand Laptop Stand, or this X-stand from Steklo) to elevate your MacBook Pro and cool it off better.

Also, check the “Pro Tips” section below for more tips.

4. Dust and Dirt

Similar to softer surfaces, dust and dirt in your Mac — especially in the fans — will make it warmer. This is because Macs rely on vents to dissipate heat. If the vents of your MacBook are filled with a lot of stuff, it’s bad for air circulation.

Don’t know where the vents are? On older MacBook Pros, they’re located in the hinge area right under your display and above the keyboard. The old Retina MacBook Pro also has vents on the underside.

How to Fix It: Clean Fans and Vents.

First, you can use a little brush to remove dust and dirt. You can also use compressed air, but be careful as it might damage your Macbook’s components. Be sure the compressed air doesn’t spit out any water.

For those of you who are using an old MacBook Pro, you can also consider opening it up and cleaning internal components like fans and CPUs. This video shows how:

5. Web Pages with Flash Ads

How many times have you visited news/magazine websites like NYTimes, MacWorld, CNET, etc., and noticed your MacBook Pro fans run faster almost instantly? I experience this all the time.

How to Fix It: Block Flash Ads.

Unfortunately, by the time I wrote this guide, I noticed some big news sites learned this trick and blocked their plugin, asking visitors to remove it in order to view their content…ouch! You can find the best ad blockers from our other guide.

6. SMC Needs to be Reset

SMC, short for System Management Controller, is a chip in your Mac that runs many physical parts of the machine including its cooling fans. Typically, an SMC reset helps resolve hardware-related issues, and is harmless. See this Apple article for more indicators that your SMC might need to be reset.

How to Fix It: Reset SMC on MacBook Pro.

It’s quite easy and it takes less than a minute. First, shut down your MacBook and plug in the power adapter, which puts your Mac in charge mode. Then hold Shift + Control + Option on your keyboard and press the power button at the same time. After a few seconds, release the keys and turn on your Mac.

7. Spotlight Indexing

Spotlight is a convenient feature that allows you to quickly search all the files on your Mac. When you migrate larger files, or your MacBook gets upgraded to a newer macOS, it might take a while for Spotlight to index content on the hard drive. This might cause your MacBook Pro to become hotter due to high CPU usage. How do you know if Spotlight is under the indexing process? This thread has more.

How to Fix It: Wait Until Indexing Completes

Unfortunately, there is no way to stop Spotlight indexing process once it starts. Depending on your hard drive usage and other factors, it may take up to several hours, so be patient.

By the way, if you have folders that contain sensitive data and you don’t want Mac to index them, you can prevent Spotlight from doing so. Learn how from this Apple tip.

8. Fan Control Software

As I said above, using fan control software to change the speed of your MacBook’s cooling fan is a bad idea. Apple Macs know how to adjust the fan speed automatically. Manually controlling the fan speed could cause extra issues, even damage your Mac, if done inappropriately.

How to fix it: Uninstall Fan Speed Software/Apps.

Removing apps on a Mac is usually very easy. Just drag and drop the app to Trash and empty the Trash. In rare cases, you may need to manually clean up the associated files.

If you have some apps to remove, you can also use CleanMyMac, as the Uninstaller feature allows you to do so in batch.

The Uninstaller feature in CleanMyMac

9. Fake MacBook Charger

A normal charger for a MacBook Pro includes three main parts: AC power cord, MagSafe Power Adapter, and MagSafe connector. It’s always good practice to use the original ones that came with your Mac. If you bought one online, it could be fake and might not work well with your MacBook Pro, thereby causing the overheating problems and other issues.

How to Fix It: Shop from the Apple Online Store or Local Retailers.

It’s often not so easy to spot a fake MacBook charger, but this YouTube video shares a few awesome tips. Check it out. Also, try to avoid shopping from online marketplaces, other than the official store, for Apple components. Don’t be lured in by lower prices.

10. Bad Computer Habits

Every computer has its own limit. You should know what your MacBook Pro is and isn’t capable of. For example, if you are holding a 2024 model MacBook Pro with a spinning hard disk drive, chances are it won’t be powerful enough to deal with too many processes at the same time. If you run photo/video editing software as well as other apps simultaneously, it won’t take long for your Mac to heat up.

How to Fix It: Know your Mac and Treat It Nicely.

Pro Tips to Prevent MacBook Pro from Overheating

Final Words

I hope you find this troubleshooting guide helpful. For Apple fans, MacBooks are like our working partners. Overheating issues aren’t good for your computer, surely you’re not happy about them.

Fortunately, the problem doesn’t occur for no reason. I’ve shown you then of those above, and their respective fixes. It’s unrealistic that you’ll implement all these solutions, and it’s very unlikely you’ll have to do so. However, they should give you some clues about what might be causing your MacBook Pro to run hot.

Macbook Pro With Retina Display Review (Mid

A little evolution, a little revolution. Apple has a track record of making significant design decisions, particularly when it comes to dropping “old” technology from its products or adopting new, and the reworked MacBook Pro with Retina Display is no different.

At first glance, then, it’s familiar from the persistent design of the previous model (which stays on sale, of course, with updated Ivy Bridge processors and NVIDIA graphics). None of the Air’s wedge-like taper, with new Pro instead resembling a flattened version of before. Both base section and lid have been trimmed to get the thickness down to 0.71-inches, with some casualties along the way.

Most obvious of those is the optical drive. Just as Apple led the way in ditching the floppy drive from its desktops years ago, now the DVD burning SuperDrive has been relegated to external (and optional) peripheral. Priced at $79, it connects via USB and works with not only the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display but the MacBook Air and Mac mini. As design decisions go, it’s one not only do we think most will approve of, but that fits in perfectly with Apple’s growing emphasis on digital content delivery.

The other sacrifice is an ethernet port, now dropped in favor of a second Thunderbolt port. This leaves the new MacBook Pro reliant on wireless connectivity, unless you think ahead and bring the new $29.99 Thunderbolt to gigabit ethernet adapter. Expecting that to be included in the box is, perhaps, over-ambitious, even with a new flagship notebook, but it’s something we imagine most users Pro may find themselves needing at some point, and is a little tougher to stomach than the absent optical drive.

While it may look like a flatter Pro of old, Apple has in fact done some significant reworking to achieve the 4.46 pound notebook. Half of the ports – the two Thunderbolt, a USB 3.0 and the 3.5mm headphone socket, along with the redesigned MagSafe 2 connector – are on the left, while a second USB 3.0 along with HDMI and an SDXC card slot are on the right. Long-time Apple watchers will have noticed some unusual additions there, and indeed the MacBook Pro with Retina Display breaks some conventions.

HDMI is a welcome inclusion, as is the much-requested upgrade from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 (Apple bucks convention and keeps its USB ports white, rather than the blue we’ve seen on PCs). Thunderbolt’s huge throughput and a growing number of adapter cables – not to mention native peripherals – means the two ports can turn their hand to many things, not least Mini DisplayPort, DVI, dual-link DVI and VGA, with a FireWire adapter due in July. It’s worth noting that, although there are potentially three display connections, the new MacBook Pro can only support two external monitors (at up to 2560 x 1600) plus its own Retina Display panel.

The MagSafe 2 connection – which, as in MacBooks from before, uses magnets to hold the power plug in place and thus shouldn’t drag your notebook off the desk if you stumble over the cord – has grown wider and flatter. It’s the only way Apple could accommodate it in the new design – the last-gen MacBook Air has the old style, but can fit it because of the blunter-edged wedge profile – which means if you want to use an existing power supply you’ll have to throw in a $10 adapter. Apple has also returned to its older cable style, with the cord sticking straight out of the plug.

It’s inside that the biggest changes have taken place. The new MacBook Pro with Retina Display is resolutely not intended to be opened up by the end-user, and Apple has used that disclaimer to squeeze in components with a focus on space-saving rather than subsequent accessibility. Much of what heft is left is battery, with the 95-watt-hour li-poly pack considerably larger than the 77.5 Wh of the previous-gen model. As in the MacBook Air, neither RAM nor SSD are user-upgradable, with the former soldered to the mainboard.

Cooling has become something of an obsession among Apple’s engineers, and the new MacBook Pro is evidence of a new strategy for both quiet and effective heat dissipation. Air is sucked in through the hinge section and then funneled through to gills on the sides of the notebook, driven by a newly-designed asymmetric fan with unevenly-spaced impeller blades. That unusual blade design, Apple says, helps to reduce the tonal impact when the fans are spinning.

In practice, it’s a different type of noise to before: not necessarily quieter, but less intrusive. You still hear the fan spool up when doing heavy-duty processing, such as video exports, and the base can become warm – though not hot – to the touch at those times, but it cools again quickly.

The large glass trackpad and black, backlit keyboard are as on the previous model, and just as easy to use: the former is silky-smooth and responsive, and the latter provides a good amount of travel and spring.

Trace Offers Excellent Tracking Protection For Chrome And Firefox

Privacy is the most looked at feature in web browsers by modern internet users. Most websites track you online to provide you with relevant suggestions on products that you can buy. Not just that, your information can be used to track your internet behavior and it can be used against you. Most of the tracking is done by fingerprinting your device or by other relevant methods. In this post, we’ve covered a Google Chrome and Firefox extension called Trace that can help you maintain your privacy while you are on the internet. It lets you browse online without leaving a trace!

Trace extension for Firefox & Chrome

Trace is a simple extension that was built to improve privacy-centric features on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It comes with some essential protection features that everyone should have enabled on their devices.

Fingerprint Protection

A fingerprint is a unique hash produced by your browser. Since the hash is unique, it can be used to track an instance of a browser. Two prevalent forms of browser fingerprinting are Canvas Fingerprinting and Audio Fingerprinting.

Canvas Fingerprinting is a method of uniquely identifying browsers by hashing an image produced by the HTML5 Canvas element. To overcome such form of fingerprinting, Trace will randomize the Canvas hash with every request. Which renders canvas fingerprinting as useless and makes it impossible to track you.

Web Request Controller

This is a feature that will track each web request that passes from your browser. It will try to remove known tracking files, URL parameters, and block tracking servers. It will by default work for all websites, and you can whitelist any exception If you want.

Network Information API

This API in your browser can expose network information such as speed and other details. Enable this feature if you want protection against network information tracking. Once enabled, this will return same value every time making it difficult to track for websites.

WebRTC Protection

Websites have access to your local IP information by default. Its combination with public IP can be used as a unique identifier for tracking you. You can easily enable this feature from settings to prevent such tracking.

Google Header Removal

This is one tricky feature. While you access some Google’s services from Chrome, some extra headers about your Chrome installation are sent along with every request. This feature will remove such headers from requests, precisely: X-Client-Data, X-Chrome-UMA-Enabled, X-Chrome-Variations, and X-Chrome-Connected. This feature does come with a caution note saying that this might cause strange behavior on some Google services.


The extension comes with a good Statistics page. This page lets you view the extension in action. It lets you view how many requests were blocked today and their break up in different categories. It will also show you the number of records it is currently blocking from the uncached regular blocklist. While you can delete statistics, you can also export them as CSV, XML or JSON files for further processing.

Trace is a good extension to have on your browser. Most of the features work fine and can prevent a lot of websites from tracking. But a few of them come with caution too. And then there are some experimental features available as well. The development is still on, and we expect the tool to be more polished and refined very soon. The extension also provides relevant information and links where you can check if the protection is working or not.

This is a highly customizable extension for Web Browsers so you might face a few tricky technical terms. But I can assure you that the program does very well in explaining them to a normal average user. Go here to download Trace.
