The new ad focuses on one of the new features introduced to iMessage in iOS 8, the ability to instantly send audio messages quickly and easily. The ad humorously highlights how voice messages can be used to better communication with friends, with examples pointing out how voice messages are good for sarcastic comments, singing and saying hard-to-spell words instead of typing them.

    If you’re in the business of creating screencasts or Mac-based video demos, there’s a very good chance that you’re already using Telestream’s $99 ScreenFlow. With the latest update, the app is sure to gain a new group of supporters—iOS developers. And it will because Apple is encouraging these developers to submit app previews—video captures of their apps in action. It happens that this latest version of ScreenFlow not only lets you capture video directly to a Mac running Yosemite from an iOS 8 device that bears a Lightning-connector, but also lets you add touch…

  • YubiKeys by Yubico provide two-factor authentication by USB

    27 Nov 2014 | 10:54 am
    I’ve written a few times about two-factor authentication (2FA), where a password (something you know) is paired with a second item, like a device-generated token or one-time code sent via SMS (something you have). A password can be stolen or sometimes extracted, so a second factor makes it substantially more difficult for someone who lacks physical access to you or your stuff to break into one of your accounts. This restricts attackers from accomplishing wholesale attacks across thousands or millions of accounts, unless 2FA is badly implemented or attackers find an exploit. While Apple has…

    Carter Dotson
    28 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    Framed [$4.99] feels like the first half of what should be a really good game. It's a title with a great premise: rearranging comic book panels both in order and rotation so that the protagonist in the scene makes it to the end without getting detected by cops or falling to their doom. The cops in the world of Framed were not the academy's best and brightest students, as they don't even turn around for the protagonist running through doors right behind them. "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" is the motto of the Framed Police Department, but good for the characters in this game, all…

    We're entering that time of year where publications start giving out their "game of the year" awards to various games. And, well, most of them will totally ignore mobile games. But one of the first GOTY lists has come out and a mobile game is number one, and it's a bit of an unexpected inclusion: 80 Days [$4.99] by Inkle was named Time's Game of the Year. It being a bit surprising to be in a mainstream publication – albeit not a gaming-specific one – is not a function of the game's quality (which is excellent) but that it wasn't one of those games that hit the mainstream.

  • iWork ’14 review: Still waiting for that great leap forward [Updated]

    Iljitsch van Beijnum
    27 Nov 2014 | 4:00 pm
    When Apple released the 2013 edition of the productivity suite formerly known as iWork, it represented a radical departure from iWork '09 and earlier versions. The "iWork" moniker disappeared along with upfront costs for many, and those were only two of the 2013 update's many changes. Things only move forward from there as the 2014 iteration doesn't backtrack, so those hoping for the old iWork to rise from the ashes will be disappointed. However, Apple isn't plowing full steam ahead in the new direction either. This year's updates don't break much—if any—new ground. Rather, they add…
  • Report: Microsoft and Yahoo vie to become Safari’s default search option

    Google Maps and YouTube are no longer bundled as default apps on iPhones and iPads, but there's one big place on Apple's devices where Google is still the default option: the Safari search bar. Microsoft's Bing, Yahoo (also Bing-powered), and the privacy-minded DuckDuckGo are all included as options, but Google has been the default for as long as iPhones have existed. That may change next year according to a report from The Information (paywall). Apple and Google's search agreement is reportedly set to expire soon, and both Microsoft and Yahoo are already said to be talking with Apple…

    Joe Mullin
    21 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    More details are now public about the deal Apple reached in June to settle claims that it engaged in price-fixing in the e-book market. That settlement was approved by a federal judge on Friday. It's an unusual one, in which Apple essentially bets the outcome in its class-action lawsuit on the outcome of another case. In 2011, Apple got sued in a class-action case, where a class of e-book buying consumers was ultimately joined by attorneys general of various states. The Department of Justice also came after Apple for price-fixing, and the government won that case in 2013. Apple has…

    It would be a stretch to say that iOS 7.1 made the iPhone 4 feel fast, but the update improved the phone's performance as much as could reasonably be expected for then-three-and-a-half-year-old hardware. It took what had been a disappointing update and made it usable. Jump ahead to iOS 8, an update which did pretty much the same thing to the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2, and other hardware based on Apple's aging A5 chip. App launch times slowed. Animations got choppy. Performance became inconsistent. It was the update that made them stop feeling "fast enough," which makes Apple's decision to keep…
  • Cisco expects to pay $188M to Rockstar, the Apple-owned patent licensor

    Joe Mullin
    19 Nov 2014 | 12:35 pm
    Cisco is preparing to dole out a serious chunk of cash to settle its patent lawsuit with Rockstar, a patent-holding company created out of the ashes of Nortel, a Canadian telecom. The $188-million pre-tax charge was revealed in CIsco's most recent earnings call, and first reported on Monday by the IAM Blog. Rockstar, which was created by a group of big tech companies including Apple, first sued Google and its customers in October 2013. In January, it sued several cable companies, saying their cable modems infringed Rockstar patents by using the DOCSIS standard. Cisco intervened in…

  • The Effect of an App Store Feature

    Federico Viticci
    28 Nov 2014 | 8:35 am
    So, with almost 2500 downloads you are no. 128, and just 2k more gets you to no. 4. Wow. When you look at this, it’s not really that much top-heavy as I thought. It seems that with decent media exposure you can get pretty consistent number of downloads and chart ranking. Aleksandar Vacić's new app, Run 5k, was featured by Apple, and he posted detailed numbers about the effect of Apple's feature. It's easy to guess that an Apple promotion on the front page of the App Store may help with downloads, but Aleksandar has actual numbers, and it's interesting to look at his graphs to…

  • Importing Photos in iCloud Photo Library on iOS with Correct Dates and Metadata

    I'm in the process of importing five years of photos into iCloud Photo Library following an upgrade to the $0.99/month iCloud plan, and I wanted to share a quick tip about the experience. For years, I stored photos in Dropbox thanks to a combination of CameraSync and Hazel, which allowed me to try various photo management services that had desktop uploaders such as Everpix and Picturelife. Each time I wanted to try a new service, I could simply download their desktop app, point it to my Dropbox folder, and let my Mac mini handle the upload. After the sad and premature demise of Everpix, I…

    Earlier this week, analysts from International Data Corporation – also known as IDC – announced some surprising sales figures for the iPad, and the tablet market in general. The company, which specializes in market research and analysis of consumer technology, reported that for the first time ever sales of Apple’s tablet are expected to decline when compared to the previous year. Furthermore, that trend seems to have extended to other tablet manufacturers as well, as sales growth in the tablet space has slowed dramatically, falling from a high of 52.5% last year, to just 7.2% in…

    On the average, how many Apple devices do you have? I’d wager that you have quite a bunch and that you are no stranger to a cable spaghetti situation. Some get used to it. Others get irritated. If you own a MacBook Pro Retina, you might as well make sure that everything is nice, clean, and as crisp as can be, right? And that includes NOT having a mess of cables plugged into your laptop. Of course, you can always choose to avoid plugging in several things at once, but if you can’t help it, there’s a pretty sleek solution: BRACKET. BRACKET is a Kickstarter project based in…

    When it was first introduced as part of iOS 3 back in 2009, Messages was a simple app designed to enhance communications between iOS devices, without compromising the ability to send standard text messages to other types of devices as well. In those early days, it was a bare-bones app, lacking in features and polish, but over the years Messages has continued to be refined, and gain new functionality to the point that it has grown into a robust platform that millions of users depend on every day. With the release of iOS 8 back in September, the app received a nice upgrade, with some…

    Apple may be shedding the iPhone 5c in 2015. Per MacRumors and Taiwan’s Industrial and Commercial Times, Apple is slated to discontinue the iPhone 5c in 2015. Production of the handset is said to be stopping in the middle of the year, as Apple suppliers Wistron and Foxconn will look to wind down production of the device. The news follows a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this week which noted that production of the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 4S would end later in 2015 after promotional plans. Originally released as a lower-cost option last year, the iPhone 5c is…

Its popularity comes from the convinces factor of not having to press down completely on the trackpad every time. However, tap to click tends to be annoying for new users, who may find themselves selecting texts or applications when not desired.

    For any avid YouTube watchers, 1080p was what made the difference between a good video and a great one. But now YouTube has integrated video quality beyond measure. After 1080p comes 1440p and finally 2160p, also know as 4k, Ultra HD, and UHD. The upgrade to 4k seems great, but is it really? Although, the jump from 1080p to 2160p is noticeable, most people will not be able to experience the true clarity of 4k videos unless you have a retina display monitors or a 4k Display Monitors. Mixed in with the slower downloading speeds and older graphics cards not being able to support it. This brings…

And it is worth knowing a little bit about the mysterious, conflict-driven cultural process whereby HTML5 became a “recommendation.” Billions of humans will use the Web over the next decade, yet not many of those people are in a position…

  • iPhones and iPads led the way in mobile shopping on Thanksgiving

    Joseph Keller
    28 Nov 2014 | 6:57 am
    Online sales during Thanksgiving were up this year, with iPhones and iPads grabbing a large percentage of online shopping on mobile devices. Overall online sales were up 14 percent over 2013, with iOS devices alone counting for a quarter of all sales. iOS devices also had a substantial lead in mobile site traffic. From TechCrunch: Yesterday, the average order value on iOS devices was $118.57, only $23 more than on Android devices. But iOS led the way in bringing more site traffic at 36% versus 16%, and in what may be the real killer stat, iOS devices alone accounted for over one-quarter of…

  • Getting Java client apps to run the way you want

    16 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    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…

    Frankie70 (803801) writes Apple invested more than $1 billion in an effort to make sapphire one of iPhone 6's selling point. But the iPhone 6 was released without the sapphire screen. GT Advanced Technologies, the small company chosen to supply Apple with enormous quantities of cheap sapphire, declared bankruptcy a month later. Recent documents from GT's bankruptcy proceedings, and conversations with people familiar with operations at Apple and GT, provide several clues as to what went wrong. GT said that to save costs, Apple decided not to install backup power supplies, and multiple outages…

"The promotion, which starts Monday, promises as much as $550 to iPhone owners who trade in their handsets in favor of BlackBerry's Passport.

    22 Nov 2014 | 6:29 am
    An anonymous reader writes: On Friday a U.S. federal judge approved a settlement in the Apple ebook price-fixing case that could see the technology giant paying $450 million. $400 million of that would go to the roughly 23 million consumers thought to be affected by the price fixing, and the rest would go to lawyers. Though the case is now settled, the dollar amount is not necessarily final — an appeals court still has to rule on a previous verdict. If the appeals court finds in Apple's favor, then the total settlement drops to only $70 million. If they find against Apple, then it's the…

    New submitter lazarus (2879) writes Apple is falling in line with the European Commission's request that app sellers do more to stop inadvertent in-app purchases. Following Google's lead, Cupertino has removed all instances of the word "free" within its iOS and Mac app stores (with the exception of its own apps, like iMovie), and replaced them with the term "Get." The new label clarifies what users can expect when downloading an app. Apps previously labeled as "Free" will now have a "Get" label. If those apps include in-app purchases, a small gray "In-App Purchase" label will appear below the…

    Apple users continue to adopt the latest iOS version on their iPhones and iPads, but the spike recorded by Apple as of November 24 may also be attributed to a growing install base of new-generation iDevices. iOS 8 has been steadily adding point after point for the past few weeks. Deployed in September alongside the iPhone 6, the firmware is supported not only on cutting-edge iDevices, but also on the older generation of iPhones, iPads, and even iPod touch players.

    Few CEOs have ever been as involved with their company’s products as Steve Jobs was. The man used to barge into meetings or into testing labs, slam or praise others’ ideas, and even chip in some of his own. His signature is often found in the fine print of Apple’s patents applications, among other illustrious minds that helped conceive, develop, and build the iconic iDevices spawned by the Cupertino company. Three years after his death, Jobs’ legacy continues through inventions approved by th... (read more)

    Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath first debuted on the original Xbox in 2005 to praise from critics and today the game has officially arrived for iOS devices with some new additions and enhancements specifically for the smaller screens. Developed by Oddworld Inhabitants, Stranger’s Wrath is the latest installment in the franchise despite being first released on the original Xbox almost 10 years ago. The title foregoes the side scrolling puzzler gameplay that made the original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and follow up games in the series popular when released on PlayStation in the late 90’s.

    Android might have the sheer weight of numbers, but when it comes to ecommerce, it’s iPhone and iPad owners retailers want to attract. Online shopping data compiled from Thanksgiving shopping yesterday showed that despite iOS devices in the US being outnumbered almost two-to-one by Android, it’s iOS devices that dominate online purchasing. iOS accounted for a quarter of online purchases, compared to less than 7% for Android devices. Average order value was also higher, at $118.57 compared to Android’s $95.25 …  The data was compiled by IBM’s Digital…

    Steve Jobs may have passed away more than three years ago, but he is still having patents awarded today as applications work their way through the system and old patents are renewed with updates. MIT Technology Review notes that of the 458 patents credited to Jobs, almost a third of them have been awarded since his death in October 2011. Since his death in 2011 from pancreatic cancer, the former Apple CEO has won 141 patents. That’s more than most inventors win during their lifetimes.

  • I Think My Mac Has A Virus! 3 Ways You Can Tell

    Justin Pot
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Is your Mac acting kind of…weird? Whether you’re seeing adverts you can’t explain, or your system is unreasonably slow, you might think the problem is malware. And you might be right (but probably aren’t). Back in 2009 my co-worker Jackson asked whether Macs need virus scanners. The common consensus at the time was “no”, but Macs have grown in popularity since then – and not surprisingly, so has Mac malware. This doesn’t mean you should panic: widespread Mac infections are still rare. Odds are your Mac is clean, even if it seems otherwise. What Is…

    Job announcements for two new positions within Apple’s corporate retail team indicates the company is sharpening its focus on relationships with customers and employees, to include updating the existing Net Promoter and other survey programs. The position descriptions don’t provide any clues why Apple has become more interested in customer and employee feedback.

    Even with 22 stores in the greater Los Angeles area, Apple’s retail team has been on the search for the perfect flagship store location for years, and now they may have found it. Incredibly, a tipster says the company has signed a lease for “several hundred thousand square-feet” of space inside the historic Broadway Trade Center in the city’s downtown, which lately has been blooming with redevelopments. The Downtown Examiner Web site says the leased space will constitute an Apple “campus” with offices, residential space and retail areas for both Apple…
  • Inside Store Employee Culture: The Clap-Out

    Gary Allen
    10 Nov 2014 | 1:54 pm
    It may be difficult to understand—or even believe—that there is close-knit employee culture beyond the shiny products on wood tables inside the Apple stores. But in fact, there is. The hiring, training and management of employees stresses a team structure, and tends to create a close group of workplace colleagues, if not outside-work friends. So when an employee decides to leave the job, it’s a significant event, if only because he/she is moving on to a higher-paying job. This video appeared on YouTube showing the last exit for an unnamed employee at the Rio Shopping (Spain) Apple…

    Apple has taken the next step to merge its on-line and retail store customer support systems, apparently hoping to filter out unnecessary Genius Bar appointments for trivial and non-Apple problems, but without solving the on-going congestion caused by walk-ins without appointments. According to insiders, as much as 30 percent of store visitors are bound for the Genius Bar, where 350 appointments are managed daily at typical mid-sized stores. As outlined by 9to5Mac, under the new support system, when you visit the main “Support” Web page and navigate pages of advice and…

    A French government privacy agency has warned Apple to adjust the video surveillance systems at four of its retail stores, saying they are too intrusive by constantly watching employees beyond the public retail space. The Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) said if the company doesn’t comply, it could be subject to fines. The involved stores are Opéra, Rosney 2, Bordeaux and Parly 2 stores. Every Apple store around the world has a video surveillance system to protect the company’s assets and employees.

However, they are not without their problems. The tablet can withstand ordinary wear and tear, but dropping it can result in serious long-term damage. This is particularly true in the case of cashiers who are swiping thousands of items for several hundred customers each day. A sudden jolt or a jostled elbow could result in the cashier dropping the tablet or dinging it with some kind of can or…

Lares What Vintage really is Vintage is a term that’s typically used to describe things that are between 20 and 100 years old, and is a word that is often applied to clothes, furniture, and more. Originally used to describe the year of an aged wine, vintage is now often referred to as “retro,” and rarely used to discuss wines, except amongst sommeliers. While vintage used to be used primarily for clothes and wine alone, vintage has taken on an entirely new culture over the past ten years.

    When it comes to the question of security for video conferencing, one often comes across two extreme and opposing attitudes among managers. A lot of them truly undervalue the importance of secure video conferencing and believe that their business is too mundane and far beyond the scope of anyone outside their organization’s interest. This type of manager would not hesitate to use Skype or regular chat to hold meetings and share confidential company information. On the other hand, one just as often meets managers who are paranoid about conducting meetings of any importance online, who are…

The great thing about a loving spirit is that the more you give the more you have to give. Share your love and helping hand with: Family—Yours: Help with the Thanksgiving meal Preparing the Thanksgiving meal is an ordeal. All of that good food didn’t magically appear.

  • A New Microsoft Attitude?

    Phyllis Evans
    11 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    This past week Microsoft updated Word, Excel and Powerpoint for the iPad and iPhone and gave everyone a nice bonus. When they first introduced the Office apps for iPad and iPhone, you needed a paid Microsoft Office 365 subscription to do anything other than view documents on your iDevice. Sorry, I don’t need the upgrade to Office 365. My Microsoft Office 2011 works just fine, thanks. Along with the new updates, Microsoft dropped the 365 subscription requirements and added support for Dropbox. You still need a free Microsoft account, but that’s not a big deal. Start a document on…
  • If You have an Apple TV, you don’t need a Chromecast

    Terry White
    9 Nov 2014 | 9:01 pm
    One of the things that Apple TV has been used for a lot is to mirror the display of a late model Mac or iOS Device. I was actually curious about the Chromecast when it came out, so I ordered one. The idea behind it was that once you connected it to your HDTV you could display any tab/window from the Chrome browser on your TV. There are a couple of advantages to this approach. You could keep working on your laptop in other tabs or applications while the content from that one tab streamed to your TV. It didn’t dawn upon at the time that I actually already had this capability with my Apple…
  • Assign Ringtones for Contacts in Yosemite

    Terry White
    26 Oct 2014 | 9:01 pm
    I’m a fan of assigning ringtones to my contacts. However, this task is one that until now always had to be done on the iPhone itself. To make matters worse Apple buried the Ringtone assignment under the Edit button instead it being a pop-up menu like it used to be (in iOS 5 or 6). Also since Apple still won’t let us assign ringtones to groups of contacts, it’s still very much a “manual” one-by-one process. With Mac OS X Yosemite it gets a little easier. Because of the new continuity/hand-off features between iOS 8 and Yosemite, your Mac will now ring when your…

    OS X is a descendant of a long lineage of UNIX operating systems, from which it inherits its incredible stability and enhanced security. However, the past two weeks have uncovered numerous bugs in a core piece of software relied on by many UNIX operating systems, OS X included: bash (Bourne-again shell). It turns out that these bugs have been very long standing and can be exploited in numerous ways to provide unchecked access to a computer (in some cases remotely) with an afflicted version of bash installed. Due to the surprise and scope of this vulnerability, many have dubbed it…

The constant news of war and people killing each other in the name of religion, territory or riches is simply senseless. You know that I have often predicted in my annual prognostications that this would be the year of confirmed alien contact. But let me tell you, if I was an intelligent alien, I would stay way, way away from this planet. War is barbaric, uncivilized and the case can be made that wars do not solve…

    Something that has been in the news lately (or at least the online news articles) is the topic of privacy on the internet with regard to how government agencies and other commercial entities are trying to keep tabs on people’s browsing habits. Complete anonymity online is nearly impossible, as you are tagged by the address assigned to you by your internet service provider (ISP). Your browser is also being tracked by where you go, what sites you visit, and this information is being logged and sent to companies that track consumer habits to better advertise to those particular consumers.

Automatic is a tiny device you plug into your car’s data port and links to your iPhone or Android (download at Google Play) through an app. It provides all sorts of fun information about your driving and your car. At first I thought my 2007 VW Rabbit wouldn’t be smart enough to contain the proper hardware to make this work, but Automatic actually works with most cars that have sold in the US since 1996.
