Wondering how the regular AirPods compare to the AirPods Pro? Adam Engst ended up with both, so he let them compete for his attention—his conclusion might surprise you. If the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented you from going cycling with your friends, you’ll want to read Julio Ojeda-Zapata’s review of Zwift, which lets you go on virtual bike rides with friends from around the world. Notable Mac app releases this week include URL Manager Pro 5.4, SoundSource 4.2.4, Firefox 78, SEE Finance 2.1.6, and Timing 2020.7.
