  • PCalc and the Everything Calculator for iOS 8

    I never thought I'd use a complex calculator app such as PCalc, but, following an iOS 8 update and praise from Dr. Drang and Jason Snell, I reconsidered. PCalc is now on my Home screen and I'm using it on a daily basis for all kinds of calculations and conversions. I've written about my modest calculator needs before: I'm no engineer, I've never been good at mathematics, and all I need to do with numbers typically consists of simple operations and conversions. Living in Italy but working with people based in the United States, I have to convert Euros to Dollars and metric units to the system…

    It sure was big news when former Microsoft CEO (and employee number 30) Steve Ballmer bought the LA Clippers. Prior to him, the Dallas Mavericks’s owner, Mark Cuban, was probably the only “techie” owner in the league. (I could be wrong, though.) Source Now, in a probably not-so-surprising move, the new owner of the LA Clippers has placed a ban on Apple products for the team. It seems that he doesn’t want the team using anything Apple, and that he has expressly said it. In spite of Steve Ballmer and Microsoft parting ways, not without a little friction, it is clear…

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:53 pm
    Apple released a patch Monday for Shellshock, a serious software vulnerability disclosed last week, although the company had said it posed no risk to most users.

It is prevalent in Unix and Linux systems. The flaw in Bash, which has been present for two decades, could allow an attacker to take complete control of a computer if the software is remotely accessible. An attacker could append malicious commands into a CGI (Common…

    The European Commission today announced the results of its formal investigation into Apple's tax arrangements in Ireland, accusing the company of receiving illegal state aid from the country, reports The Wall Street Journal. In its findings, the regulatory body stated that deals between Apple and Ireland struck in 1991 and 2007 helped Irish authorities "confer a selective advantage upon Apple" that resulted in a lowering of its tax liability. The Commission also added that Apple's increase in sales for its business in Ireland appear to be inconsistent when related to comparable operating…

Andrew Cunningham jonathan: perhaps AndrewC should have to use OS 9 for a day or two ;) LeeH: omg LeeH: that's actually a great idea The above is a lightly edited conversation between Senior Reviews Editor Lee Hutchinson and Automotive Editor Jonathan Gitlin in the Ars staff IRC channel on July 22. Using Mac OS 9 did not initially seem like such a "great idea" to me, however. I'm not one for misplaced nostalgia; I have fond memories of installing MS-DOS 6.2.2 on some old hand-me-down PC with a 20MB hard drive at the tender age of…
  • After Consumer Reports flex test, new iPhones “not as bendy as believed”

    Cyrus Farivar
    28 Sep 2014 | 9:11 am
    The iPhone 6 Plus has already become scarce. Megan Geuss After reports began to surface that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are far more bendable than their predecessors, Consumer Reports promised it would put the new handsets to the test. As of Friday evening, the results are in: "Our tests show that both iPhones seem tougher than the Internet fracas implies." How exactly did the magazine come to that conclusion? Using an Instron compression test machine, the researchers applied a "three-point flexural test... in which the phone is supported at two points on either end, then force is applied at…
  • Apple working on “Shellshock” fix, says most users not at risk [Updated]

    Apple has responded to concerns about “Shellshock,” a pair of vulnerabilities in versions of the GNU Bourne-Again Shell (bash), issuing a statement that the company is “working to quickly provide a fix” to the vulnerability. However, a company spokesperson said that most Mac OS X users have nothing to fear. In an email to Ars Technica, an Apple spokesperson provided the following statement from the company: "The vast majority of OS X users are not at risk to recently reported bash vulnerabilities. Bash, a UNIX command shell and language included in OS X, has a weakness that could…

  • PCalc and the Everything Calculator for iOS 8

    Federico Viticci
    29 Sep 2014 | 12:21 pm
    I never thought I'd use a complex calculator app such as PCalc, but, following an iOS 8 update and praise from Dr. Drang and Jason Snell, I reconsidered. PCalc is now on my Home screen and I'm using it on a daily basis for all kinds of calculations and conversions. I've written about my modest calculator needs before: I'm no engineer, I've never been good at mathematics, and all I need to do with numbers typically consists of simple operations and conversions. Living in Italy but working with people based in the United States, I have to convert Euros to Dollars and metric units to the system…

    So it’s not like us to make fun of Apple, but we don’t mind making fun of things – even those that we like. One simply cannot ignore an iPhone 6 bending. It could be a flaw in the design. It could simply because the phone is so thin. We don’t know, although Apple has stated that there have been only 9 users who have complained about BendGate. We’ve also read about a theory that there is a media plot behind BendGate. What we do know is that there are some funny BendGate tweets that you may (or may not) find amusing. Here you go.

    It sure was big news when former Microsoft CEO (and employee number 30) Steve Ballmer bought the LA Clippers. Prior to him, the Dallas Mavericks’s owner, Mark Cuban, was probably the only “techie” owner in the league. (I could be wrong, though.) Source Now, in a probably not-so-surprising move, the new owner of the LA Clippers has placed a ban on Apple products for the team. It seems that he doesn’t want the team using anything Apple, and that he has expressly said it. In spite of Steve Ballmer and Microsoft parting ways, not without a little friction, it is clear…
  • Why iOS 8 Failed to Impress

    Brian Meyer
    25 Sep 2014 | 5:21 am
    iOS 8 has been with us for just under 1o days now, giving everyone enough time to install it and get our feet wet. While Apple calls this their biggest update to iOS since the app store, the truth is that the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile OS is lackluster at best. iOS 8 seems hastily thrown together and overall not ready for a full release, especially with a good chunk of features not working until OS X Yosemite is released. For those working with a Windows PC, that means what you see is what you get. iOS 8 seems to have missed the mark, and here are the major reasons why iOS 8 failed…

    Yesterday, we reported that Apple was getting ready for the iOS 8 update to iOS 8.0.1, and indeed, they released it. While many perhaps were expectant that the iOS 8 update would make the performance of their iPhones better, the result was quite the opposite. Source Instead of being satisfied, many iPhone 6 users who updated to iOS 8.0.1 got a huge headache instead. And who can blame them? The iOS 8 update was full of glitches, with users not being able to connect to their mobile networks.

  • Consumer Reports puts iPhone 6 handsets through bend-test paces, comes back with results

    Chris Barylick
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:59 pm
    The Internet has exploded with images and videos of bent iPhone 6 Plus handsets as well as a viral video of someone deforming the handset with his bare hands. And, with that, Consumer Reports sprang into scientific action to perform actual tests that seem to indicate that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets may be tougher than currently rumored. Per Consumer Reports, the publication used what’s called a “three-point flexural test,” in which the phone is supported at two points on either end, then force is applied at a third point on the top—you can see the testing for yourself in our…
  • Opinion: Why the iPhone 6 camera is only 8 megapixels

    Chris Barylick
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:41 pm
    By Bob Snow The iPhone 6 camera has the same 8 megapixel count as the 5s and this has spec-happy geeks bashing the phone. There are compelling reasons for going lower and I will try to lay them out. Small sensors can suffer when they have a high pixel density. The sites that gather light become very small and they typically sacrifice low light performance. Low light performance gets traded off for higher resolution and even this becomes an issue with small sensors. No matter how high the resolution of the sensor, lens resolution comes into play much more when the sensor is small. If the…
  • Opinion: Flexibility Under Stress

    Chris Barylick
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:11 pm
    By Bob Snow The new iPhone 6 Plus appears to have a problem. There have been a number of reports of the Plus deforming under a relatively normal mode of use. The phone, when placed in a front pocket for a length of time and stressed, can bend and not return to its original flat form. This is not a problem that can be simply dismissed, nor is it the end of the world. Apple knows how to benefit from the emotion and hype in the lead up to such an important introduction. The downside is that any negative publicity about the product gets similarly amplified. Take a deep breath and let’s look…

    It’s important to have the right tool for the job. That can be said of pretty much anything, and now I’m saying it about headphones. There’s a widespread belief that the more money you spend on audio technology, the better the product will be. It’s true to an extent, but the rise of MP3 or AAC audio on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has complicated matters. That’s compressed, digital audio on a device that’s not exactly built to push out quality sound. So, despite how much money you pay for headphones, you’re fighting a losing a battle.

It’s a great sign for Apple that it doesn’t revere his public statements as immutable truths. That’s from like page one of the book Ways People Get Apple Completely Wrong. Apple never treated Jobs like a deity whose word was The Truth — neither before nor after his death. He was almost infamous for it. Wired itself ran a list of such statements back in 2010.

You already know them and their wonderful products, and I’ve expressed my admiration for them here on my blog many times. They’re assembling a Cocoa all-star team up there. There’s probably more concentrated Cocoa talent at Omni than anywhere other than Apple itself.  ★

    See more at Mac Sage I’m excited about Apple’s new iPhone 6. I will probably upgrade my iPhone 4s in a few weeks when they become available. I’m not sure about the iPhone 6 Plus. I don’t think I want to be carrying around a small iPad mini in pocket. I am especially excited about the new 8MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture and the ability to capture 1080p HD and 60-fps and 240-fps for slow motion video. (I wish the 240-fps worked at 1080p, but sadly it’s only at 720p.) I am also eager to see how well the video stabilization works. The disappointment for me today…

    See more at Mac Sage I’m getting more and more calls and emails from friends and family regarding startup problems with their Macs. This seems to be especially true for the iMacs. So I’ve put together a list of the best ways to fix these problems. If your Mac hangs on a white screen or just won’t start up normally, there are a number of things you can do to try to fix the problem. It should be noted that if you have a hardware problem (e.g., bad hard drive, bad memory, bad power supply, etc.) these fixes won’t help. If you have a hardware problem, the best course of…

    See more at Mac Sage I remember fondly my first animation class when I was eight years old. There was the excitement of creating a story with inanimate objects and bringing them to life with a Super-8mm camera. I also remember how agonizing it was to wait for the film to be developed so I could view the fruits of my labor. If only I had an iPad and iStopMotion back then… iStopMotion ($9.99) is a well-design app for the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad. The interface is simple and intuitive, allowing young and old animators alike to get to the task at hand. You can use either the front…

    I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery. Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 iMacs and my MacBook Air. The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen iMac when I'm sat at home or from my MacBook when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G). The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all. Once that was all…
  • Siri: workaround Content Not Available error

    11 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    A few weeks ago, a number of people started reporting having trouble with Siri. Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working. Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it. All you have to do is delete the middle name of the person in *your* contact card where it is stored as a relationship. I'm not sure why that works; it shouldn't, but it…
  • Older browser behavior changes in Google search

    4 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    As of August 29, 2014, Google has decided to intentionally break old browsers. They say it's not a bug, it's by design here, even though Google's support page says it accepts Safari 4 as a fully supported browser. If you want Google searches to go back to the modern style, you need to change your User-Agent string. For Safari, enable the Develop Window and use an option in there that works. Internet Explorer 9 (Windows) works, for example. [crarko adds: I don't have an older system active at the moment to try this. It's inevitable that older software becomes obsolete, the same way older…

  • Building Apps In Swift With Storyboards

    samzenpus
    29 Sep 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Nerval's Lobster writes Apple touts the Swift programming language as easy to use, thanks in large part to features such as Interface Builder, a visual designer provided in Xcode that allows a developer to visually design storyboards. In theory, this simplifies the process of designing both screens and the connections between screens, as it needs no code and offers an easy-to-read visual map of an app's navigation. But is Swift really so easy (or at least as easy as anything else in a developer's workflow)? This new walkthrough of Interface Builder (via Dice) shows that it's indeed simple to…

    First time accepted submitter chasm22 writes EU Regulators are apparently set to accuse Apple and the Irish government of entering into several sweetheart deals that left Apple with lower taxes than what it legally owed. If the ruling is upheld, Apple could owe billions in back taxes. Interestingly, it seems that the Irish government would actually get the extra money and suffer little for its part in the scheme.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Ars Technica speculates that licensing issues may be giving Apple pause: "[T]he current [bash] version is released under the GNU Public License version 3 (GPLv3).

Through the certificate-based authentication protocol, Web services and Internet users first authenticate one another ("shake hands") using a TLS/SSL certificate, encrypt Web communications end-to-end, and show a padlock in the browser to signal that a communication is secure.

    19 Sep 2014 | 4:33 am
    Welcome to the brand new iOS 8, which became generally available just yesterday. As always, users who are champing at the bit for new features have upgraded right away, and users who are more conservative and risk-averse are waiting for 8.0.1, which is sure to have less bugs. This is always true of any large upgrade of any software, and iOS is no exception. But if you’re eager to try out new features, here’s what you can expect in iOS 8 in terms of accessibility … General Articles Fantastically, there are several people writing knowledgeably about accessibility so I shall…

  • Bendgate helps Apple?

    Mike Flaminio
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:11 pm
    A curious take from Apple Insider's Daniel Eran Dilger: <blockquote class=quote>HTC also jumped at the opportunity to take a potshot at Apple, claiming its One M8 flagship was &quot;designed to withstand the most demanding environments. Like your pockets.&quot; However, when Consumer Reports tested the 5 inch HTC One M8 against Apple's new phones, it held up worse than either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, which has both a larger display and is significantly thinner (7.1) than HTC's phone (9.35mm). HTC's flagship bent at 60 pounds of force and cracked open at 90, while the…
  • Consumer Reports takes on iPhone bending

    29 Sep 2014 | 8:09 pm
    Consumer Reports: <blockquote class=quote>The reports stated that Apple applies 25 kilograms (slightly more than 55 pounds) of force to an iPhone 6 Plus to test flex. What does 55 pounds mean in context? Using our Instron, we found that it's approximately the force required to break three pencils. Consumer Reports' tests pushed the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus much further than 55 pounds....</blockquote> Consumer Reports is always happy to jump on the viral destruction of electronics.

    Erika Adams for Racked: <blockquote class=quote>In keeping with Apple's impossibly secretive ways, the company does not disclose specifications for its new devices before its big events. If case manufacturers want to have new iPhone cases ready to sell by launch date (which, this year, was 10 days after the announcement), they'll have to rely on leaked specs, inside sources, and, ultimately, a costly gamble on measurements not officially confirmed by Apple. If they guess wrong, the manufactured cases become worthless and the company eats the cost.</blockquote> It's a big gamble…

    Apple has moved quickly to address the “Shellshock” bug, releasing an update to OS X Mavericks overnight and it should pop up soon in your App Store update section. Patches were also released for the Lion and Mountain Lion OS X. Developers were also greeted with the first build of iOS 8.1 with a build number of 12B401.

    After we went live with the Morning News Friday, Apple went live with iOS 8.0.2. By now many of you have likely updated your iOS devices anyway, but if not hop to it! Whilst not related to the update, it seems you can now no longer downgrade to iOS 7 from iOS 8. Cult of Mac reports that this is because Apple has stopped signing iOS 7.1.2. The effect of that is that iTunes will no longer accept restoring to that

Well Apple has had enough of that and has told the Wall Street Journal that a grand total of 9 people had complained so far about bending. That really doesn’t seem a lot with over 10 million phones sold. In addition to the statement to the Wall Street Journal, Apple took the unusual step of inviting the press, including Josh Lowensohn from The Verge, in to see how they

    We should be telling you all about iOS 8.0.1 this morning, the update Apple released overnight. Sadly there were some pretty big bugs in the update that for some users meant they lost their phone connection and it broke touch ID. It seems iPhone 6 owners in particular were affected. Needless to say, once those issues started Apple pulled the update. The update was intended to address the HealthKit issues, which had prevented a number of health and fitness apps being released with iOS 8. Now if you were up burning the midnight

We have seen previous reports that this will happen in October and it now seems the Commercial Times is also saying October for the iPad Air. That in itself would not be all that newsworthy, however as Cult of Mac also notes they are also saying that new iPad Mini is at least 3 months away. This delay is being put to down to a desire to differentiate between the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPad Mini.

    The conspicuous absence of detailed specifications in Apple’s launch information has left a vacuum that industry blogs are only too happy to fill. Aside from how long its battery lasts, we’d all like to know exactly how sharp the Watch’s screen will be. And there are two approaches to working it out: look at the pictures, or investigate the display panels available. China-based NPD DisplaySearch took the latter approach, but we fear they neglected the former. We can’t be sure, since we lack a Chinese reader on the MacUser team, so we’re reading Display…

    Apple has long touted the thinness of its devices as a strength, but in the case of the iPhone and iPhone 6 Plus it may literally be a weakness.

The problems appears to be particularly acute where tight trousers are worn. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are affected, according to posts on forums and social media. ‘The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus chassis is milled from a solid piece of aluminium alloy whose composition is secret.

There were also glimpses and references to an Apple of the past; an image of the original mouse, a picture of the first iPhone, and of course a performance from U2.

Macklowe sparked the idea for an Apple store on the plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue, and “pestered” former VP…

    A store clerk leaked training and procedural documentation that indicates the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be landing on Chinese store shelves on October 10th. Here’s the google translation of the Chinese version of TechWeb. In another report by TechWeb the iPhones will appear cheaper through the magic of initial subsidies, starting at 5288 yuan or $863 for the iPhone 6, the same price as last year’s iPhone 5s, with the iPhone 6 Plus starting at 6288 yuan ($1026). Chinese customers will pay lower up from costs, then spread the rest of the iPhone cost over the length of the contract.

    27 Sep 2014 | 8:40 am
    Perhaps you’ve heard about Apple’s play to get into our cars…a system called CarPlay. The way it works is that auto manufacturers outfit cars with a kind of dumb terminal that knows how to present iOS apps to the driver. The dumb terminal is that big display panel most auto manufactures use for lame GPS Navigation systems and some car controls, like climate control and maybe even your audio system. In general, the most implementations from auto makers totally suck. Apple brings improved functionality, a better interface that includes voice control, and the flexibility of…
  • Apple On Top Of iOS 8 Bugs – Exposes Our Dependence

    27 Sep 2014 | 7:37 am
    When I perform an update from Apple, on any device, whether it’s my iPhone, iPad or my Mac, my expectation is that things will be better, not broken. The worst thing about a failed update is not knowing what the problem is, and how to fix it. The thought of being without your iPhone for some in determinant amount of time is daunting. My iPhone is an anthropomorphic appendage to many, including myself. Anxiety, pure anxiety is the only way to explain it. How did we (err…me) become so dependent on a piece of technology, and is this dependency going to grow in the future? I think so.

BernsteinBernstein anal-ist Toni Sacconaghi declared last week that Apple’s first week sales of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might disappoint due to supply constraints. Mr Sacconaghi has been covering Apple for many years, and he is consistently wrong with hist predictions and analysis. He was particularly wrong about his latest advice that Apple would not be able to seek nearly as many iPhones as investors hoped. Sacconaghi estimates that first weekend shipments would be more in the range of 7-8 million units. What was the actual number? Over 10…

    Label or Envelope? I have a Brother Color Laser Printer and a Dymo LabelWriter. I love both devices, but when it comes to mailing something in an envelope I could either print a label or print right on the envelope. As with a lot things, i’m usually in need of one or the other as I’m walking out the door. I think for a minute, which is going to be the fastest and take the least amount of setup. The Dymo definitely wins for packages, but an envelope could go either way. Also it’s cheaper and less wasteful to print on the envelope. I remembered the good ole days of Mac OS 9…
  • Not enough space to install iOS 8?

    Terry White
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:01 pm
    Now that iOS has OTA (over the air) updates we’ve become spoiled. Each time a new system update comes out we can just tap the update button without having to plug in our iDevices into our computers. However, when a major iOS update comes out like iOS 8, it’s a lot larger than a dot release and therefore it has to download and take up space on your device during the installation process. In many cases people just don’t have that much free space available. iOS 8 weighs in at over 1GB of space and requires just over 5GB of free space to do the install. If you like to keep lots…

    It seems like there is always someone out there trying to scam the honest guy. Sadly, you know that some people are being taken in, otherwise these low-life characters would move on to something else. The ‘Microsoft tech’ scammers have been around for a long time now, but their phone calls seem to be escalating. I’ve been getting 4 or 5 calls a week from them. Their scam is to tell you that your ‘Windows’ computer is infected and is sending out malware, but they can fix it if you just follow their instructions. Sure I will. If you follow their instructions, you…
  • Apple lowers the price for iCloud storage

    14 Sep 2014 | 9:01 pm
    Everybody gets 5GB of FREE iCloud storage just by creating an account. For most people this is plenty of space for the few documents and applications they use that sync to iCloud as well as for backing up an iOS device such as an iPhone. However, if you have LOTS of images and other data on your iOS device or have more than one iOS device that you’d like to backup or you wish to take advantage of the NEW iCloud Drive, then 5GBs probably isn’t going to cut it. I had upgraded from 5GB of iCloud storage to 25GB of iCloud storage (5GB free plus 20GB of paid storage) which was costing…

    A few days ago my Magic Trackpad started misbehaving. Had some ultra cheap batteries in it, so they got the blame. New Eveready Golds in place, it seemed to be okay – for a while. Turned off Bluetooth, then turned it back on using my Wacom tablet. Completely rebooted my iMac. Trackpad was finally okay, but now my Logitech K750 solar keyboard was misbehaving. Turned it off, then back on. Checked the settings. F-keys wouldn’t work at all. Worse yet, it was like the down-arrow was stuck. Open a window in Safari and it wanted to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. ?????

    JT
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    I admit that I’ve been cooly analytical about most of Apple’s recent product announcement. Part of that may stem from the fact that it’s usually pretty clear what Apple will be announcing based on their refresh cycle; part of it may be that every detail of Apple’s upcoming products are called out by intrepid bloggers months ahead of time. The end result is that there are usually few surprises remaining by the time Tim or Phil take the stage for the official announcement. Yesterday, Cook’s “One more thing” brought back a feeling I haven’t felt watching an Apple event in a…

    Apple announced its 3rd quarter earnings last night and despite posting the most aggressive earnings growth since 2012, your troll headlines center around the decline in iPad sales for the second consecutive quarter. I’m not going to say Apple wouldn’t want the 15 million unit sales every quarter, but the plateauing of the iPad is inevitable. The reasons are pretty straightforward. Smartphone : Necessity :: Tablet : Luxury For everything that’s great about iPads, they are still “tweener” devices, which is why a certain contingent of clueless tech pundits couldn’t…

    I’m sure my readership is all broken up about Samsung’s latest earnings guidance, which is warning that the company’s operating profit has dropped 24% YoY to a 2 year low. Just in case you thought the anticipated $7.1 billion in operating profit was one of those “YoY anomalies”, that figure is also down 16% from the previous quarter. It appears that pundit-dubbed “innovation” combined with a budget-busting campaign of negative advertising and flagship BOGOs haven’t been enough to keep the bends from continuing to bubble up through the…

So what did they announce? I think the most successful part of the presentation was what they didn’t announce, namely a Google-branded instant paperweight à la the Nexus Q or the Nexus 7. Then again, they did talk a lot about their current crop of shartwatches, but at least there’s a bit of distance…

    If you pop on over to Apple’s Watch pages on the company website and start browsing around, you’ll notice the interstitial ads are a bit more sultry, dare we say steamier, than usual. I can just see the tagline now — “Don’t kiss me yet. First, send me your heartbeat.” With no release date nailed down for Apple’s newest product category, we’re going to have to wait a while, presumably, before we see any commercials for the Apple Watch start hitting the airwaves. But if the above is any indication, Apple’s adverts are poised to go down an…
