While Microsoft has apparently put a lot of effort into making the release of the free upgrade as error-free as possible, problems are still surfacing despite attempts by the software giant to minimize issues, including extremely slow download speeds for a number of updaters....

    Although Apple CEO Tim Cook remains "bullish" on the future of tablets, Apple and the market generally for tablets is declining as consumers continue to favor large-screen smartphones for tablet-like functions, and as companies struggle to figure out what the replacement cycle for the still-popular devices is or should be, says research firm IDC. According to Apple, it sold 11.2 million iPads (with shipments of 10.9 million) in its fiscal third quarter, down from 13.7 million sold in the previous quarter....

  • iPad Market Share Falls Below 25% as Tablet Market Continues to Decline

    The latest numbers from market research firm IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker show that Apple remains the largest vendor in a declining tablet market, shipping 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter of 2015. While the iPad continues to be the best-selling tablet, its worldwide market share fell below 25% as Apple faced increased competition from low-cost rivals Lenovo, Huawei and LG. Samsung continued to be the second largest tablet vendor with 7.6 million tablets shipped in the second quarter and 17% market share, a 12% year-over-year unit decline. Lenovo, Huawei and LG Electronics…

AT&T has since responded, arguing that data throttling doesn't harm customers, the company is being prejudged and that its First Amendment rights are being violated in a response first found by The Hill (via Ars Technica).

If you're somewhere you can listen, be sure to turn it back up- the controls for that are in the lower right corner of the video stream.

    With the new Grand Tournament card expansion on the horizon, interest in Hearthstone [Free] has started to spool up from people who either haven't played much of the game or only dabbled in it previously. One thing I've seen both online and in conversations with friends of mine, is a general level of overall dismay towards getting involved in the game now because of how much the card pool is expanding and the concern that they're never going to win if they "don't have all the good cards." It's a valid concern, but not one that should stop you from giving the game a try, because in collectable…

Developed by Jay Tholen, this is a point-and-click adventure game that has you playing as Dropsy, a clown who can't speak – but he can hug. Dropsy has to clear his name after a circus fire seems to implicate him, but the game is otherwise in an open world, where it is possible to pursue different parts of the story at your own leisure. This game has been floating around for a while now, and I've been intrigued by how it seems to combine a creepy clown with a…

Made by ex-AAA developers out of Madison, apparently the game had been floating around the midwestern games scene, and I somehow missed it until I got an email about it a couple days ahead of launch. And holy heck, do I wish I had seen this sooner, because Prune is a gorgeous and unique experience. It's not really like anything you've played, in that it's a game about tree pruning. You draw a line from the base provided in order to draw the tree upward, from which it starts sprouting branches. Now, to help it grow,…

    Joe Mullin
    27 Jul 2015 | 6:32 pm
    It's been two years since filmmakers making a documentary about the song "Happy Birthday" filed a lawsuit claiming that the song shouldn't be under copyright. Now, they have filed (PDF) what they say is "proverbial smoking-gun evidence" that should cause the judge to rule in their favor. The "smoking gun" is a 1927 version of the "Happy Birthday" lyrics, predating Warner/Chappell's 1935 copyright by eight years. That 1927 songbook, along with other versions located through the plaintiffs' investigations, "conclusively prove that any copyright that may have existed for the song…

    While most people tune in to Apple's WWDC keynote to figure out what's coming in the next version of the company's operating systems, the event is a developer's conference. Apple genuinely uses WWDC to introduce a lot of new technologies that end users will never experience directly. So with the exception of big news like Swift, the company generally does this in later, non-public talks and through the software released via its Developer Connection. This year was no exception. While some things, like app thinning, found their way into the keynote, most technical details were buried for…

    Dan Goodin

    A bug in the latest version of Apple's OS X gives attackers the ability to obtain unfettered root user privileges, a feat that makes it easier to surreptitiously infect Macs with rootkits and other types of persistent malware. The privilege-escalation bug, which was reported in a blog post published Tuesday by security researcher Stefan Esser, is the type of security hole attackers regularly exploit to bypass security protections built into modern operating systems and applications. Hacking Team, the Italian malware-as-a-service provider that catered to governments around the world, recently…
  • Apple disables App Store reviews from devices running iOS 9 betas

    Andrew Cunningham
    22 Jul 2015 | 8:03 am
    As of yesterday, when the fourth developer beta of iOS 9 was issued to testers, those running a prerelease version of the operating system can no longer leave app reviews in the App Store. Negative app reviews left by beta testers is a perennial problem for app developers (as highlighted well in this post over on MacStories), and it's nice to see Apple taking steps to fix it even though OS X El Capitan beta testers can still leave app reviews as of this writing. Up until now, users testing new iOS versions could leave bad reviews for apps that didn't work correctly under the new OS. The…

    Adario Strange, reporting for Mashable on Apple's usage of Snapchat for Apple Music: In a fairly unprecedented move, Apple has taken its promotional message to a competing software concern: Snapchat. The company's brief Snapchat story takes us to Los Angeles, where Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe (sporting an Apple Watch) goes behind the scenes of Beats 1 L.A. After a few scenes of Lowe DJing in the studio, he throws it to his colleague, DJ Julie Adenuga, to continue the music program in London.

    Great story by Charlie Warzel for BuzzFeed on Christopher Hills, Apple-certified Final Cut Pro editor who overcame the difficulties of using touch screens and modern software thanks to Apple's Switch Control: Maybe most important though — at least for Hills — it’s about a feeling of liberation that’s hard for any company to measure in an earnings report or tech specs sheet. “These tools have allowed me to come out of my shell and make my own way in the world,” he wrote in an email to BuzzFeed News. “From communication and environmental control, to…
  • Spatial Interfaces

    28 Jul 2015 | 6:04 pm
    I believe the best software is an extension of the human brain. It lets us think naturally, and conforms to us, not the other way around. Translation of information should be the computer’s job, not ours. It’s what we built these digital slaves for. A great Spatial Interface meets our expectations of a physical model. Designed for human beings, it supports a mind, living in the dimensions of space and time. They are Interfaces that are sensible about where things lay. Like a well designed building, they’re easy to traverse through. One space flows into the other, without…

  • Top 5 Time-Saving Apple Watch Tricks

    Justin McGee
    29 Jul 2015 | 2:00 pm
    The Apple Watch truly sets a new standard for wearable technology, both in form and function. This watch was designed to look great on your arm, but it was also designed to save you time. When you have your Apple Watch strapped to your wrist, you minimize the amount of time you need to spend on your iPhone. The watch frees you from constantly reaching down into your pocket to fish out your iPhone. In some respects, the Apple Watch replacing your iPhone for certain tasks seem strange, but the Apple Watch really complements the phone and makes it that much more easy to use. It does a great job…

    It is hard to believe, but Apple Music has been streaming songs for a month already. During that time, the service has been much maligned, with critics, many of whom say that it has a long way to go before it catches up with competitors like Spotify. Still, in just four short weeks Apple has managed to already garner more than 10 million subscribers, many of whom are no doubt taking advantage of the generous three-month free trial period. If you’re one of the early adopters who singed up to see what Apple Music is all about, you’ve probably already made up your mind as to…

    I wish! Seriously. People who run, jog, or work out at the gym know all too well how the default Apple earbuds suck for these activities. They don’t fit comfortably. They are more prone to falling out. The cable gets annoying. While there may be other brands that manufacture earphones specially designed for sports activities, it would be nice to have Apple wireless earbuds that come with the iPhone. The money you’d otherwise spend on wireless earbuds from other brands can be put aside for the “new iPhone/iPad fund”. Well, here’s a bit of hope if you’ve been…

Apparently, Reddit and imgur user “wowbobwow” was able to get Mac OS 6.0.1 running on an Amiga 500 computer. This was achieved by using an emulator called “A-Max” that allowed Mac ROM chips to be run on the Amiga. Once this was done, the Amiga was able to execute the Mac code on the computer’s Motorola 68000 processor, which was the same processor shared by the Macs and Amigas of that era.

A new industry report from Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri, revealed in a recent note to investors that he can no longer find evidence that Apple is working on such a device for 2015. The note has Arcuri nixing the idea of the smaller handset so as not to cannibalize sales of refreshed 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models widely expected to launch this fall. “I think one of the reasons is because the iPhone 6 has sold so well,” Arcuri said. “And they said, ‘Look, why would we want to cannibalize?

But increasingly, Apple has secretly eliminated features or functionality in order gain a financial benefit. It appears this has happened again with the iOS 8.4 release.

That's not to say it's a failure — experts estimate Apple has sold between three and five million of them, and we may get more detailed sales information during their earnings call, tomorrow. But many major app developers are still missing from the Watch's catalog, and Apple doesn't have a good way of roping them into the new section of its ecosystem.

If Apple moves forward with this type of technology it would be a complete 360 on its previous direction to not monetize everything they know about customers. Tim Cook has even said multiple times that companies are targeting consumers on multiple fronts and that he's completely against using customer information in this manner and it's not the kind of company he wants Apple to be.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

They're pouring resources into getting kids to code, setting up internships, and even establishing mentoring programs for underrepresented groups. But experts say they're still failing to root out their own internal biases when making hiring decisions. "That bias shows up in recruiting, with companies drawing from the same top universities, where black and Hispanic graduates…

    iPad Quarterly Sales (Q112 – Q215) On Tuesday Apple will announce the results of its third fiscal quarter of 2015. Apple’s third quarter is traditionally the weakest throughout the year as the back to school period looms and so do the iOS device lineup refreshes.

As a quick reminder, in fiscal Q314 Apple had revenue of $37.4 billion and net income of $7.74 billion. Net income represented year over year growth of 12.29%.

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:07 pm
    iPhone 6 – Apple’s biggest phone yet? On Tuesday January 27th, Apple will announce the results of its fiscal first quarter of 2015. Way back in October 2014, Apple told investors to expect total sales somewhere in the range of $63.5 to $66.5 billion—representing, at the midpoint, 15% growth from fiscal Q1 2014. But that seems conservative according to some analysts. Onlookers have been pining over the iPhone sales numbers, which with a full quarter of iPhone 6 sales seem to be mind blowing—but who really knows? In addition, we know iPad sales are likely to continue a decline…

  • Apple Music has 10M new subscribers but will they stay ?

    Scott Paterson
    28 Jul 2015 | 3:19 pm
    According to many popular sites it is being reported that Apple Music has already reached 10 million subscribers ( Appleinsider ). This is of course an artificial number as none of those customers have yet to pay a penny for the service as it is free for the first three months of use. The question I guess then is how many people will pay to use it beyond the trial period. My own experience so far is that I will continue to use it as I am finding the new music recommendations far superior to Spotify and the fact that the whole family can use it at the same time ( for a small increase in cost )…

Perhaps it was a bunch of irretrievable photos lost when your hard drive suddenly and inexplicably died ? Or maybe it was your lifetimes collection of music or movies, carefully downloaded and collated onto that 4TB external hard drive connected to your desktop computer that you hadn’t noticed had been accidentally deleted ?

    Last night my MacBook’s iTunes was updated with the latest release ( 12.2.1.16 ) and when it restarted I was prompted with the invitation to Join Apple Music trial. As I had already signed up I ignored this prompt and clicked through to iTunes assuming it was some sort of error, however what I noticed then was the For You and New sections at the top of the iTunes window were now missing. Restarting iTunes didn’t resolve this, nor did logging out of the the Store and back in again. After a number of attempts to recover the missing sections I went into the iTunes Store and clicked…

According to documents filed with the city of Cupertino, Apple’s new headquarters will feature a visitor’s center with an observation deck.

    “It was just right there,” he told Ars. “It was hovering, I would never have shot it if it was flying. When he came down with a video camera right over my back deck, that’s not going to work. I know they’re neat little vehicles, but one of those uses shouldn’t be flying into people’s yards and videotaping.”Some drone owners are morons.

    29 Jul 2015 | 12:08 pm
    Om Malik:Whether it is the fear of carrier overages, or just the preconceived notion that WiFi is faster, most of us continue to log into WiFi expecting it to be blazing fast. But it isn’t really true, both from my personal, anecdotal and totally unreliable point of view and from a data-backed view. Most of the popular public WiFi platforms like Starbucks WiFi, Xfinity, hotel WiFi and a whole lot of others are quite slow compared to a good LTE connection—especially Verizon, which is pricey but reliable.This is so true.

    IDC provided data today showing that although Apple's iPad continues to be the market share leader in the tablet market, its share has dropped markedly over the past year and the overall market for tablets is declining. This year, Apple shipped 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter (ending June 30), while the number for 2014 was 13.3 million units.
