    Apple’s Siri has some cute little Easter Eggs built in to her programming that let you ask her all sorts of inappropriate questions and get back some mildly amusing, PG-13 answers. But what if you want to see what Siri would sound like all grown up? And drunk? Well, now you can, with Mouthy (free […]

    I don’t mind paying for iOS apps if I really want that app, and I know that I will be using it. You know, like Sim City 4 for the iPad… However, there are some apps that are rather too expensive for me, so I just wait till they are offered on discount or when they go free, which is bound to happen sooner or later. For today, here are some (normally) paid iPhone apps free for today. As of this writing, these apps are free, but they will soon go back to their normal price tags, so hurry up!

  • Five things Apple should fix in the next Apple TV update

    Macworld
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:21 am
    Apple TV got a software update last week that didn’t exactly blow our hair back—the icons got a new, flat, iOS 7-and-8-ish look, and we got Family Sharing support, a new Beats Music channel, and that’s about it. The new icons are pretty and all, but the experience of actually using the Apple TV didn’t noticeably improve. Here are five suggestions for Apple to make the next Apple TV update a real upgrade.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

  • iPhone 5 battery replacement program allows third-party displays

    1 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Apple is now allowing people to participate in its iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program even if they've had their phone's display fixed using third-party components, according to a notice on the company's private website for service providers. The company's previous position was that it wouldn't replace batteries in phones that may have seen damage, and as such it required broken displays to be fixed first. If someone fixed a display on their own, though, Apple would deny them a new battery....

    As previously reported, Apple will launch the second-generation iPad Air, and possibly the iPad mini with Retina display, with an option for a gold color -- to match the options available for the iPhone 5s and new iPhone 6 family. The gold color, first introduced last year, is said to be the most popular color for the iPhone 5s and caused severe shortages for the gold model during its debut. The next iPad models are also expected to gain the latest A8 processor, improved graphics and Touch ID....

  • External Link: Pebble Cuts Prices, Adds More Features

    1 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Until Android Wear and the Apple Watch announcements, Pebble was probably the hottest smartwatch company on the scene. Now, with big-name competition, Pebble is slashing prices of the original Pebble by $50 to $99 and the Pebble Steel by $30 to $199. The company is also adding background sleep and activity tracking to its smartwatches. Its new marketing campaign pokes fun at Apple’s SVP of Design, Jony Ive, saying “Breath, Jony.

    The glass Apple Store cube at the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue isn’t just a New York City landmark — it’s as iconic as any product Apple has released, if not more so. But what you may not know is that the actual store, underground, was an unused basement for 40 years. New York Magazine tells the story of how Steve Jobs and real estate developer Harry Macklowe worked together to turn an unwanted basement into one of retail’s greatest success stories. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on the Internet.

  • External Link: Debunking the Bendable iPhone 6

    30 Sep 2014 | 12:18 pm
    Much has been made of claims that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are prone to bending in people’s pockets. Consumer Reports, which drew attention to antenna issues in the iPhone 4, put both phones to a “three-point flexural test,” the same test that Apple uses. While Apple reportedly only tests with 55 pounds of force, Consumer Reports found that the iPhone 6 didn’t deform until it reached 70 pounds of force, and the iPhone 6 Plus held up even better, deforming at 90 pounds of force. While the iPhone 5 is much tougher, deforming at 130 pounds, the iPhone 6 still exceeds even Apple’s…

MacRumors has confirmed that activating that option after upgrading to iCloud Drive deletes all iWork documents stored in iCloud. However, iCloud documents that cannot be accessed by iOS, like those in Preview and TextEdit, appear to not be affected. Just another reason to hold off on upgrading to iCloud Drive until Apple works out the kinks. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on…

    Vogue editor Robert Sullivan today published a profile of Apple's Jony Ive, documenting his rise from a small London design firm to become one of the most recognized and respected designers in the world. The life-changing moment happened when Ive met Steve Jobs and the two "just clicked." Ive talks about feeling a little apart, like Jobs. "When you feel that the way you interpret the world is fairly idiosyncratic, you can feel somewhat ostracized and lonely"—big laugh here—"and I think that we both perceived the world in the same way." In his time at Apple, Ive has led design efforts on a…

The new option would bring the iPad up to color parity with its iPhone models, which have been offered in three colors since last year's iPhone 5s. New versions of the company’s 9.7-inch iPads, anticipated to be unveiled this month, will include gold as a choice of color for the rear metal cover, adding to the silver and gray available for the lighter iPad Air, the…

The Start menu and taskbar, interface elements that are familiar to all Windows users, are placed front and center in Windows 10 in an effort to make the OS "familiar, compatible, and productive," according to Microsoft's head of operating systems…

    Pebble hasn't flinched as it faces down Android Wear and the upcoming Apple Watch.Instead, the smartwatch startup has shown its scrapper side with lower prices and further refinements to its software. The plastic Pebble now costs $99, while the metallic Pebble Steel costs $199—both down $50 from their original prices. (Best Buy is currently selling the Steel for $170.)To coincide with the price cuts, Pebble is releasing its second firmware update in less than a month, allowing the watch to track fitness activity and monitor sleep in the background.

  • Call the plumber: How to teach Siri about your relationships

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Twitter follower Tom McM posed an expectedly short question along these lines: How can I teach Siri about my relationships? All my followers are good people and therefore not the kind of folks who would invoke Siri simply to drone on and on about their domestic problems. Given that, what I believe Tom is asking is how to get Siri to respond appropriately to your “Call my little snuggle lumps” requests. By way of background, Siri can respond to requests based on how you’ve labeled people in your life. But it can’t do that unless these folks appear as contacts on your device. So if you…

Pokemon TCG Online [Free (HD)] is a full-fledged iPad version of the Pokemon card game. As I also mentioned earlier today, it's pretty good. No word yet on whether or not this will ever come to the iPhone, but judging by other full-fledged CCG's like Hearthstone [Free (HD)] and Magic 2015 [Free (HD)]... I'm not sure how hopeful to be. If nothing else, it's just really awesome to see more "real" CCG's coming to the App Store. Stay tuned for…

    Earlier this month, Sony announced their intention to bring the LittleBigPlanet series to mobile platforms with Run, Sackboy, Run! The game is a side-scrolling auto-runner that features plenty of unlockables and even the ability to unlock special items in the console versions of LittleBigPlanet. Sony is no stranger to mobile tie-in games that connect to their console big brothers, but thus far none of their mobile offerings have been particularly strong on their own. I was really hoping Run, Sackboy, Run! would break that tradition. Late this past Friday, Run, Sackboy, Run! soft-launched in…

So, if all goes as expected, Pokemon should be available to download at 11:00 PM Eastern. I've been playing the soft launched version of the game since it hit the Canadian App Store, and I dig it. Having no prior experience with the Pokemon card game at all, it's been an interesting learning experience…

    Kārlis Dambrāns On Tuesday, eBay announced that in 2015 it would be splitting off its PayPal unit into a separate, publicly traded company. Investors lauded the move, sending eBay's stock price up nearly eight percent on the day, as of this writing. PayPal has been an enormous player in the online payments and mobile payments sectors, but for years eBay's CEO John Donahoe resisted the clamor from investors to split PayPal into its own company. But after conferring with the company's board of directors, eBay has now changed its tune. eBay acquired PayPal back in 2002, and it has been the…

OS X 10.10 has been available to developers since it was unveiled at WWDC in June, and the release of a proposed "Golden Master" build suggests that Yosemite's fall release date will come sooner rather than later.

    Vogue has published an in-depth profile of Jony Ive today, revealing details of Ive's friendship with Marc Newson, his passion for handcrafted objects, and the design process of the Apple Watch. From the article: Five years later, a disenchanted Ive was about to leave when Jobs returned to reboot the then-floundering Apple, which happened, by most analyses, when Jobs enabled Ive. By Ive’s account, the two hit it off immediately. “It was literally the meeting showing him what we’d worked on,” Ive says, “and we just clicked.” Ive talks about feeling a little…

    Apple today notified registered developers that Mac App Store submissions are now open for OS X Yosemite apps. Apple repeated its previous statement that Yosemite will be made available to customers "later this fall", but it may arrive as early as next week. By comparison, Apple notified developers to submit their OS X Mavericks apps last year on October 15, with Mavericks becoming available to customers a week later on October 22. Add powerful new functionality throughout OS X Yosemite with app extensions, explore the innovative new Swift programming language, and take advantage of advances…

  • Built for iOS 8, DateStamper Lets You Apply Date Stamps to Photos

    30 Sep 2014 | 10:11 am
    Photo shot on iPhone 6 and modified with DateStamper (vibrancy effect). When I was a kid, my parents used to take a lot of pictures. Family gatherings, vacations, Sunday road trips, our dog growing up. They weren't photographers by any means – they just wanted to document our lives and create memories. They useddisposable Kodak cameras most of the time – lots of them. Before smartphones and when “cellphones” meant this, those thousands of pictures collected in dozens of photo albums are the ones that stuck around to this day. They haven't been lost in a cloud backup.

  • Vogue: A rare look at design genius Jony Ive, the man behind the Apple Watch

    MacDailyNews
    1 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    “I first catch sight of Jony Ive across the Apple campus, in a plain Dodger-blue T-shirt and white painter’s pants, in conversation, nodding. The head Apple designer, who brought you the iMac and the iPad and now, the Apple Watch, has a nearly shaved head and a tightly trimmed beard,” Robert Sullivan writes for Vogue. “He’s not tall, not small, and looks as if he might be a formidable rugby opponent—though even from a distance he comes across as open and amenable, less likely to tackle you than to do what he is doing with a colleague at this very moment, which is…

Some snippets: Don Melton: I wrote that blog post a couple of years ago after I retired about how Sunday is a work night for everybody at Apple. Nitin Ganatra: Right.

    “Apple re-uploaded its Apple Watch introduction video to YouTube today with a few small changes to the design of the device,” Mike Beasley reports for 9to5Mac. “It seems the company’s initial renders of the watch were not as accurate as they could have been, as the new version—which also appears on Apple.com now—sports a noticeably smaller screen,” Beasley reports. “The change, which was spotted by an eagle-eyed 9to5Mac reader, was likely made to bring the watch seen in the video closer in line with the real device.” Beasley reports, “The images…

    1 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Taking potshots at Apple seems to be the in thing today. From Samsung making ad after ad after ad to #Bendgate tweets (from brands and “common” people alike), it doesn’t look like Apple’s going to get a break any time soon. Especially with its big mistakes with iOS 8. Now, Pebble has entered the arena of poking fun at the UK’s most popular brand, taking things to its home page, no less. The product of Kickstarter, Pebble was one of the first to enter the smartwatch market. One has to admit that their homepage is funnily snarky. But I dare say that the same thing…

    Don’t look now but there’s another massive vulnerability on the loose and this time it’s your Mac that’s under fire. Shellshock, the newly-discovered vulnerability affects Mac and Linux machines by allowing an attacker to inject code directly into your machine. This vulnerability is one of the worst found yet, as it has the chance to affect not only webservers and desktop machines, but even smaller web-connected devices like Wi-Fi cameras, security systems, and any other Internet-of-things devices running web-enabled bash scripts on them. There is a fix, but before getting to that,…

    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.

  • Steve Ballmer Bans Apple Products for Clippers

    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…

    Apple released OS X bash Update 1.0 for OS X Mavericks to fix a vulnerability in the bash UNIX shell. “Shellshock” is believed to be much worse than the Heartbleed vulnerability that was discovered earlier this year. PC Magazine wrote about two scenarios that can make OS X vulnerable to the Shellshock bash bug: For example, Bash would be exposed if a user turned on the remote login capability for all users, including guests. But that is an action that “is probably not the most secure thing to do anyway,” Erwin wrote, as it would open up the computer to other possible…

    OS X Yosemite is almost ready. Per Macworld, Apple on Tuesday released the golden master candidate of its forthcoming Mac OS to members of its AppleSeed developer program. The GM version of an OS is typically the final product, though the developers who’ve been beta testing Yosemite since June still have time to find a few more bugs. Apple also opened up the Yosemite beta to the public for the first time in 14 years, so a lucky million Mac users got the chance to take Yosemite for a test run. Apple revealed Yosemite, OS 10.10, at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference nearly four months…

    In spite of some nifty new hardware, the iPhone 6 Plus may in fact generate a lower frames per second rate than the iPhone 6 or iPhone 5s handsets when it comes to rendering 2D and 3D graphics at its native resolution. Per AppleInsider, a set of GFXBench 3.0 GPU benchmarks published in an initial reviews of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus showed moderate to significant GPU improvements over iPhone 5s across the board.

    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…

    Dan Provost, Studio Neat: On Apple’s website, they claim that in time-lapse mode, “iOS 8 does all the work, snapping photos at dynamically selected intervals.” When I first read this, I thought they were doing something super fancy, like monitoring the frame for movement and only snapping a picture when something changes. On deeper reflection, this would be a bad idea. Time-lapse videos look best when they are buttery smooth, and dynamically selecting intervals in this fashion would create a jittery and jerky video. So what does Apple mean by “dynamically selected…

Sometimes the rider and the elephant work together (the ideal in classroom settings), but if they conflict, the elephant usually wins. After reading Haidt, I’ve stopped thinking of students as people who simply make choices about whether to pay attention, and started thinking of them as people trying to pay attention but having to…

    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…

  • Apple Fixes Shellshock In OS X

    30 Sep 2014 | 5:42 am
    jones_supa (887896) writes Apple has released the OS X Bash Update 1.0 for OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion, a patch that fixes the "Shellshock" bug in the Bash shell. Bash, which is the default shell for many Linux-based operating systems, has been updated two times to fix the bug, and many Linux distributions have already issued updates to their users. When installed on an OS X Mavericks system, the patch upgrades the Bash shell from version 3.2.51 to version 3.2.53. The update requires the OS X 10.9.5, 10.8.5, or 10.7.5 updates to be installed on the system first. An Apple…
  • 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…

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).

    Directly touching the screen is a very easy access method for most people, and has many accessibility benefits, but for others it’s brought new accessibility challenges.

  • Apple Irish subsidiaries investigated by EU over ‘state aid’

    Kenny Hemphill
    30 Sep 2014 | 10:46 am
    Apple may have to pay back millions of dollars it received in ‘state aid’ from the Irish Government, if it is ruled illegal under EU law. The European Commission has issued a preliminary report on ‘sweetheart deals’ which saw the Cupertino company base its international headquarters in Cork. Launching a formal investigation, the EU said the deals, the first of which ran between 1991 and 2007, constituted ‘state aid.’ Under EU law, if state aid interferes with competition in the free internal European market, it’s illegal. EU competition commissioner,…

    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…

The iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest, and also the thinnest, iPhone Apple has ever made. Together with the iPhone 6, it re-defines the iPhone completely – if you want a ‘regular’-sized model, you’ll have to make do with the previous generation 5c or 5s, both of which are still on sale. Alongside the new iPhones, Apple announced the Watch, a timepiece designed to connect to your iPhone and which can perform all…

    Apple Watch announced on September 9, 2014. Showing all three editions: Watch, Watch Sport, and Watch Edition It was a day steeped in history, on the very stage where Steve Jobs originally announced the Macintosh in 1984, and the iMac in 1998, Tim Cook mentioned Steve on stage for the first time since his death two years ago. 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. Of that history, 2007 springs to mind. When doing the rumour roundups ahead of Tuesday’s event I was…

The last couple of months have reminded me of the lead up to January 2007, and maybe even more early 2010. The Apple rumour game, and arguably the world of technology were very different back then though. As I sat on the concrete floor outside a conference centre in San Francisco on a frigid January morning in 2007 I remember discussing what Steve Jobs would get up on stage and announce later that day, Digg…

    17 Sep 2014 | 6:11 am
    Predictive text, also called QuickType, is a way to complete words when typing on an iPhone or iPad. The device tries to predict which word you are typing and gives you three possible options to tap to finish the word.

    Gestures on the Magic TrackPad are all well and good, but they are a bit limited. In this episode, I take a look at creating custom gestures using BetterTouchTool (BTT). You're only limited by your imagination as BTT includes support for a wide range of actions as well as custom keyboard shortcuts. As well as the Magic TrackPad, you can also use it on your Magic Mouse, MacBook TrackPad or even the Leap Motion Controller. I also include a short video snippet of the leap Motion Controller in action, being controlled by BetterTouchTool gestures.

    Bendgate is far from over. After we ran a story about two school boys bending a display unit right inside an Apple Store, others took it as inspiration to do the same. Redditor IanBro shares a disturbing story where even parents are engaging in these types of activities with their children. The situation is getting so serious that store managers are actually forced to call the police. Not just at the Apple Store IanBro decided he’d get himself the all-new iPhone 6.

    It’s hectic at Apple. We’ve known this since forever. Headlines that go “the truth about working at Apple” have filled the Internet over the years. But two former Apple managers are giving a whole new meaning to 24/7. Don Melton, former director of Internet Technologies, and Nitin Ganatra, former director of iOS Apps, sat down with Debug 47 to do a podcast about how it was to work at Apple.

    There’s a post up on Reddit that involves an iPhone 6 dropped in cheese dip and a couple that wants it exchanged at the Apple Store, despite being completely responsible for the damage. It’s unclear if the phone no longer works properly, but it seems the duo are bent (pun intended) on having it swapped for a new one. “I dropped my husbands new iPhone 6 in a bowl of cheese dip today,” writes the OP, adding, “and I'm pretty sure he wants a divorce now.” As expected, the cheese puns started co...

  • PSA for parents: Apple recommending inappropriate apps for kids due to App Store bug

    Jordan Kahn
    1 Oct 2014 | 7:12 am
    If you use the Kids sections in the App Store for finding appropriate apps for children, you might want to be careful until Apple fixes a bug that’s currently displaying the wrong apps for kids. Specifically, the “Kids” category under the App Store’s Top Charts section is currently displaying apps that should go in the main “All Categories” section. That means that the All Kids, Kids 5 & Under, Kids 6-8, and Kids 9-11 categories are currently displaying many apps that are inappropriate for kids (pictured above).  The bug appears to be iOS 8 only, and is present in App Stores…

  • Vogue interviews Jony Ive, discusses the Apple Watch: ‘Isn’t that fantastic?’

    Benjamin Mayo
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    Vogue has published a new interview with Jony Ive, covering the life of the designer from his beginnings to the present day. Whilst many of the stories are simply retellings of previous interviews, the piece discusses Ive’s relationship with Marc Newson and — most importantly — Ive comments on the new Apple Watch. Apparently, Sullivan (the Vogue interviewer) was allowed to see the watch several weeks before the September 9th public unveiling. When Ive shows it to me—weeks before the product’s exhaustive launch, hosted by new CEO Tim Cook—in a situation room that has us…
  • The secret behind the time-lapse function in the iOS 8 Camera app

    Ben Lovejoy
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:20 am
    People these days have short attention-spans, so although time-lapse videos can be very appealing, most of us would probably prefer to watch one for 30 seconds rather than ten minutes. Thanks to a clever feature which Apple simply refers to as “dynamically selected intervals,” almost any time-lapse video you shoot in the default Camera app in iOS 8 will end up as 20-40 seconds, whether you shoot for 10 minutes or two hours … The secret was revealed by Studio Neat, the people behind the Glif tripod mount for the iPhone. Turns out, what Apple is doing is quite simple, and…

    Benjamin Mayo
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:40 am
    The iPhone 5c is often criticised in light of its beefy powerful cousins, acting as a bit of a laughing stock for the technology industry. However, it is often reported as one of the top phones by sales volume in many countries (usually beating out Samsung’s offerings). In fact, for August the iPhone 5c was the best selling smartphone in the UK, even outselling the iPhone 5s, according to Kantar World Panel. The iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in Britain in August with 8.9% share, outselling the flagship iPhone 5s with 7.6% and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 6.0%. Normally, Apple…

One of the most powerful ways to navigate your Mac uses finger gestures and BetterTouchTool (BTT), and one of the newest input methods for Mac or Windows is the Leap Motion controller.

  • 7 Handy Tasks QuickTime Player Performs for Free

    Mark O'Neill
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    When it comes to the wide variety of apps and tools available on a Mac, QuickTime Player is often overlooked. It can’t hold a candle to VLC’s usefulness and is usually opened by mistake when you click on a .MOV file. You’ve probably changed the file association so QuickTime never gets used, so you’ve probably overlooked its bounty of useful features. QuickTime is better than you think, and performs many tasks you’d expect from premium software for free. You might think differently about this bundled freebie once you’ve seen what it can do!

  • Book Reveals Genesis of Fifth Avenue Store

    Gary Allen
    29 Sep 2014 | 1:23 am
    The Fifth Avenue Apple store in New York City is arguably the most iconic retail space in the world, and a new book describes how it was the collaborative creation of two great—and sometimes contentious—personalities: George Macklowe representing real estate and Steve Jobs representing technology. The store’s success was nearly immediate, since it attracted 50,000 visitors a week after it opened in 2006, and generated $1 million in daily. Macklowe sparked the idea for an Apple store on the plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue, and “pestered” former VP…

    27 Sep 2014 | 2:23 am
    After working 10 months to obtain construction permits for a landmark retail store in downtown San Francisco, Apple is now trying to convince the city that seven tulip trees need to be removed from the side of the building before construction can begin. But even with a company promise to eventually replace the trees after the store is finished, officials of the city’s Department of Public Works were skeptical of the proposal during a hearing earlier this week. Apple intends to demolish a large existing building on a corner parcel overlooking Union Square, and construct a huge,…

This year’s debut of the two iPhone 6 models created overwhelming crowds, with hundreds in line at smaller stores and almost 1,900 people by one count at the high-profile Fifth Avenue (NYC) store. The lines were divided by store staffers into two camps: those who had purchased on-line and came to pick up their iPhone 6, or walk-ins. That latter category, supplied with cash by mystery men,…

  • Apple Kicks PayPal Out The Door Because of Samsung Partnership

    ernie@apple-investor.com (Ernie Varitimos)
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:55 am
    Holy crap Batman, PayPal was cut out of Apple Pay due to Samsung partnership, Bank Innovation says PayPal (EBAY) was in the running to be a prominent partner in Apple’s (AAPL) rollout of Apple Pay, but talks were scrapped earlier this year after the payments company struck a similar partnership with Samsung (SSNLF) for the Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner, Bank Innovation reports, citing sources close to the matter. The sources say Apple was “furious” at PayPal’s partner choice, with one person saying, “Apple kicked them out of the door.” Apple ultimately…
  • Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Cleared for China Sales

    ernie@apple-investor.com (Ernie Varitimos)
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:21 am
    Apple shares were up 64 cents yesterday, or 0.6%, and closed at $100.75. Evercore raises AAPL price target to $125, Jeffries holds at $110. Apple gets the all clear to sell the iPhone 6 in China, starting October 17th, after winning approval from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Apple had to convince the Ministry that the iPhone didn’t have backdoors that allowed the US government to gain access to user’s data. It was only two weeks ago that Tim Cook assured everyone in an open letter on the Apple website, that security and privacy was a number one priority.

  • Leak Indicates China Getting the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on October

    27 Sep 2014 | 6:19 pm
    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.
  • Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto Are Competing for Your Car Dashboard

    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…

  • EasyEnvelopes for your envelope printing needs

    Terry White
    28 Sep 2014 | 9:01 pm
    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.

  • Apple lowers the price for iCloud storage

    Terry White
    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…

    Because I’m a tech fan with a vested interest in keeping competition alive and well, about a year ago I offered Samsung some advice: start copying Apple again. Obviously Samsung are big fans of my work. At the time – and until recently – Samsung has been taking a beating by the reviewerati for a lack of…whatever the reviewerati thought Samsung had been contributing to the consumer electronics market before 2013. Disappointments included stifled yawns at the release its flagship Galaxy S shartphones and the Galaxy Gear series of wearable devices that no one knew they wanted,…
  • “Peak iPad” Is Inevitable, So Dry Your Eyes

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:05 pm
    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…

I give Apple a little bit of shit for the way they trot out 26 3rd party developers during their keynotes, but Jesus Christ if Google did not just bore the shit out of people. 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…

    Just in time to counter the news about Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10 operating system (via the BBC), Apple today launched a "golden master candidate" for OS X Yosemite. That means that development of the system is largely at an end, and that from now on Apple will chiefly occupy itself with squashing lingering bugs and honing rough edges. And if you want to jump in, you can. The release of the golden master candidate also marks the launch of the fourth public beta.Specifically, the build for the developers is Build 14A379a; the build for the public beta is Build 14A379b.

We last reported on the rumors way back in January, and now a new report from Bank Innovation (via MacRumors) claims all that work came to naught. In fact, the veteran Internet payment company apparently signed a deal with Samsung to power its own fingerprint payment system for its Galaxy S5 units.Apple apparently made the decision to end the talks.

    By the time Infinity Ward released Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, Call of Duty’s style was well-established: the single-player mode should be bombastic, jingoistic, and cinematic, while a robust and quick-paced multiplayer portion comprises the bulk of the experience. But it also depends on an eager player base and densely populated servers. Unfortunately, Aspyr’s Mac port, released three years since, has neither.Aspyr’s Mac version of Modern Warfare 3 supports cross-platform competitive multiplayer, but its benefits have been blunted by the passage of time.

    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.

These days, HTC smartphones are highly regarded, even if they don’t happen to sell as briskly as their Samsung counterparts. That said, it’s rather interesting that HTC has reportedly hired Paul Golden, the man behind Samsung’s rather clever and…
