Democrats, who mounted an unsuccessful effort to block Senate confirmation this month of Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, have slammed the president's fellow Republicans for holding the hearings.

Democratic Senator Patty Murray, who had asked Republicans to postpone the hearing while the Senate is in recess ahead of the Nov. 6 congressional elections, criticized "the shameful partisan path they have taken on what has always been a bipartisan process." She accused the Republicans of a "mad dash" to secure confirmation.

Mac mini: Does a recent report mean we’ll see new models next week?

Macworld - Wed, 10/24/2018 - 12:30

The iMac is a direct descendant of the very first Mac, and it’s often the computer that longtime users think about when they think about the Macintosh. The iMac’s all-in-one design is popular and iconic.
