It is officially proper English to call compliant people — including Apple fans — “sheeple.”

The wordsmiths at Merriam-Webster revealed “sheeple” as the newest entry in the dictionary this morning. And according to the definition, Apple fans are a prime example of sheeple in the real world.

Jan20January 20, 1985: Apple builds on the triumph of its previous year’s “1984” commercial for the Macintosh by… debuting another Super Bowl ad which has gone down in history as one of Apple’s biggest stinkers.

Called “Lemmings,” it’s an ad for the then-new Macintosh Office, which depicts blindfolded business men falling to their doom. It doesn’t go over well.

The new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar might not be the most useful tool for professionals quite yet, but it’s quickly becoming a perfect playground for retro gaming. Two new hacks bring classic games Pac-Man and Lemmings to the Touch Bar.

The MacBook Pro’s tiny OLED display seriously limits gameplay, though: You can barely make turns in Pac-Man, but it still looks better than Doom on the Touch Bar.

Get a peek at the Touch Bar gameplay in the videos below.

Don’t Starve This Adorable Bunny In Eets Munchies [Review]

By

Eets Munchies

I play a lot of games about getting one thing and maybe getting three other things along the way if I can (or feel like it). I just reviewed one Wednesday, in fact. But it’s a solid premise, and as long as getting all those things isn’t boring, developers can keep making them until everyone’s thumbs fall off.

Eets Munchies by Klei Entertainment
Category: iOS Games
Works With: iPad
Price: $2.99

Developer Klei Entertainment’s first mobile title, Eets Munchies, is another “one and maybe three” game, but it’s also a clever puzzle title that is equal parts Lemmings and Rube Goldberg. It’s the latest in Klei’s debut series, and it’s interesting to see the company go back to the cutes after its recent dalliances with hyperviolence in games like Shank and Mark of the Ninja.

Don’t let the adorable graphics fool you, though; once you really get into it, this game is to difficulty as cake is to delicious flavor.
