    There is a very easy and fast way to get Internet Explorer on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion and Lion. Ridiculous as it sounds, some websites such as corporate intranets, HR and banking sites still require Internet Explorer to access them and IE is no longer available for Mac. Of course, you can always trick sites into thinking you are using Internet Explorer on Mac but some sites can’t be fooled and it doesn’t work as well as running IE on a Mac. Here we show you an easy way to get Internet Explorer on any Mac using OS x 10.7 Lion or above which takes no more…

    23 Mar 2015 | 3:06 pm
    Lucas123 writes Benchmark tests performed on the 2015 MacBook Pro revealed it does have twice the read/write performance as the mid-2014 model. Tests performed with the Blackmagic benchmark tool revealed read/write speeds of more than 1,300MBps/1,400MBps, respectively. So what's changed? The new MacBook Pro does have a faster Intel dual-core i7 2.9GHz processor and 1866MHz LPDDR3) RAM, but the real performance gain is in the latest PCIe M.2 flash module. The 2014 model used a PCIe 2.0 x2 card and the 2015 model uses a PCIe 3.0 x4 (four I/O lanes) card. Twice the lanes, twice the speed. While…

    The very name Nisus may bring you back to the 1990s and if it doesn't, then one look at the software possibly will. That's cruel: it is nothing less than fantastic that Nisus has survived where so many other word processors have died, crushed under the force of Microsoft Word. So this version, Nisus Writer Pro 2.1 should be celebrated. It's just that there is something a tiny bit old about how it looks and feels....

    Nothing digital really exists unless it exists twice. For all that we have these great interconnected cloud services, there is still a hard drive holding on to our data somewhere and all hard drives fail eventually. They're like politicians in that respect: they go on until they fail. Carbon Copy Cloner is a way to make failures annoying rather than fatal to your work. It backs up any or all of your files and it also optionally creates a separate and bootable hard drive....

It's free-to-play with advertisements, though an in-app purchase unlocks all the possible Zoids and removes the ads. Long story short we found it to be a cheerful time-waster with a boppy soundtrack, and we're really bad at it....

Jim McKinnon joined Goodyear as an IT intern for the company’s England subsidiary and spent the next four decades working his way up to vice president and CIO. McKinnon, who retires this month, isn’t ending his 40-year career on cruise control—instead he’s been in a pedal-to-the-metal drive to change IT at Goodyear. I grew up a working-class boy.

Since the Office for iPad announcement last March, we’ve worked hard to bring the power of Office to every person, across every platform and device, so people can get things done on their terms. This substantial increase in distribution has naturally brought some changes in the way people use Office, including how and when they need a subscription to Office 365.

Note that it’s not a standalone tool, but requires Autodesk’s Maya or The Foundry’s Katana to create the actual 3D models. But this should excite any student of the 3D arts, as Renderman was used to create visual effects for The Lord of the Rings series, the Star Wars prequels, Titanic, and of course, Pixar’s own animated films. Read the full article at TidBITS, the oldest continuously published technology publication on the Internet.

NBC and parent company Comcast are not part of the negotiations, and according to a new report from Re/code, that's because Apple has not approached Comcast about a partnership. Earlier rumors about the streaming television service suggested NBC's absence from the upcoming package was due to a falling out between Apple and Comcast, but on Thursday, Comcast said that wasn't true in…

  • How Lightroom works: Where it keeps your images and presets, and how to back up

One reason is licensing and pricing—for $150 you get a stand-alone copy with a perpetual license or you can subscribe to it, along with Photoshop, for a slick $10/month. Another reason for Lightroom’s popularity is that it’s a superb alternative to the soon-to-be-dead Aperture.While Lightroom is light years easier to use than most editors, it works in a unique way and, as such, has several pieces and parts. This begs (legitimate) questions such as, “Where are my pictures?”, not to mention “Where are my…

  • Yes, the 2015 MacBook Air supports 4K displays at 60Hz

    Andrew Cunningham
    24 Mar 2015 | 12:10 pm
    When the new MacBook Pros and Airs were announced, we reported that both systems were capable of driving 4K displays at a refresh rate of 60Hz. In our head-to-head comparison of the two systems, we did it again. But in the last few days a number of readers have pointed out that Apple’s tech specs page for the new MacBook Airs claims a maximum resolution of 2560×1600. Apple's support page the new MacBook Air doesn't support 4K, but rest assured: it does. Apple We were fairly sure that Apple’s spec page was incorrect, but to get a definitive answer we dove into the still-nascent 4K display…
  • Chrome for Mac no longer crashes when loading strings that can’t be named

    Dan Goodin
    23 Mar 2015 | 12:30 pm
    Users of Google Chrome for Mac are no longer vulnerable to strings of foreign-language characters that for more than six weeks triggered crashes each time the browser attempted to render them. The forbidden three-character string was reported in February on Google's official Chromium developer site. To prevent her Mac-based version of Chrome from crashing before the bug report could be posted, the author uploaded the enigmatic string here. Sure enough, when opened with most versions of Chrome for OS X, the characters caused the tab to crash and display the familiar "Aw, Snap!" error message.
  • Review: The 2015 MacBook Air’s once-trailblazing design is showing its age

    Andrew Cunningham
    22 Mar 2015 | 12:00 pm
    The current design of the MacBook Air was a big deal when it was unveiled back in 2010. Its construction and design were a major improvement over previous Airs, it was Apple's first Mac to go with solid-state storage across the lineup, and it came with a price drop that made them palatable to people who otherwise would have just bought a vanilla MacBook. The MacBook Pro soon imitated the Air by getting thinner, moving to standard SSDs, and dumping stuff like FireWire and the optical drive. And the new MacBook takes the qualities of the Air—thin, light, minimalist—to their logical…
  • Report: Apple plans a new Apple TV box with an app store and SDK

    Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple is working on a streaming-only TV service for the Apple TV that involves channels from ABC, CBS, Fox, and a handful of others. Today, a report from Buzzfeed's John Paczkowski indicates that we may finally see a new Apple TV set-top box this summer at the Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference and that the upgraded hardware will ship with a new app store and SDK that will let developers do more with the device. As is often the case with Apple rumors, people have been talking about the possibility of an Apple TV app store for…
  • 13-inch Broadwell MacBook showdown: Should you go Pro or get an Air?

    Andrew Cunningham
    18 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    The 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch MacBook Air were once very different computers that served very different needs. One was bulkier but pretty fast and user-serviceable, while the other was thin-and-light to a fault, arriving with anemic low-power CPUs and GPUs, slow hard drives, and no easy means to upgrade. In the last two-to-three years, that gap has narrowed substantially. The Air has become more powerful and less compromised, while the Pro has slimmed down and dumped features like user-replaceable RAM and its Ethernet jack. Both use Thunderbolt 2. Both use modern dual-core CPUs…

  • Instapaper 6.2 Adds Speed Reading, Textshots

    Federico Viticci

    Nice Instapaper update released today: the app's extension has been sped up (again), Instant Sync has been added (it uses silent notifications on iOS to fetch new articles in the background), and you can now get through your read-later list with speed reading. I've never been a fan of speed reading, but I like how Betaworks integrated it as a feature inside Instapaper. The extension is much faster in the new version, and it seems to be on par with the speed of Pocket's share extension. Along the lines of integration, Instapaper 6.2 also lets you generate textshots for Twitter directly from…

For those who haven't been following the news, Periscope is a company that Twitter bought before the rise in popularity of Meerkat, a live streaming app. Periscope also lets you live stream video from your iPhone, but, according to early reviews, it's cleaner, faster, and obviously more integrated with Twitter's social graph – which was unceremoniously cut off from Meerkat. Mat Honan has a good story on Periscope: Fire up the app, launch the camera, and the app tweets out a message (if you want it to) that you…

    The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a charming, funny, intelligent adventure that tells a lighthearted story. Wonderfully rendered, it is an homage to the point-and-click adventures that came before it while forging its own ground. Challenging without being frustrating, it encapsulates the best of the genre, while only suffering from a few of the classic games’ flaws. For players (like me) who didn’t play the original, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 does a handy job of getting you up to speed (after a slightly confusing/thrilling opening where a character plummets to the earth and has to…

Apple recorded it, and it’s now available as both video and audio. I thought it was fun and fascinating. And I’m kind of proud that it got flagged as “explicit” — but that was Bill Gates’s fault.  ★

  • Amazon Makes Even Temporary Warehouse Workers Sign 18-Month Non-Competes

    John Gruber
    26 Mar 2015 | 11:45 am
    Spencer Woodman, reporting for The Verge: The work is repetitive and physically demanding and can pay several dollars above minimum wage, yet Amazon is requiring these workers — even seasonal ones — to sign strict and far-reaching noncompete agreements. The Amazon contract, obtained by The Verge, requires employees to promise that they will not work at any company where they “directly or indirectly” support any good or service that competes with those they helped support at Amazon, for a year and a half after their brief stints at Amazon end. Of course, the company’s…

  • New flash storage tech promises tenfold capacity increase

    Peter Cohen
    28 Mar 2015 | 9:13 am
    A new breakthrough promises much better solid state disk (SSD) storage capacity. Could future a MacBook sport multiple terabytes of storage? Both Intel and Micron have announced the development of 3D NAND, a new form of computer storage that promises dramatically increased density compared to the flash storage found in today's Macs. In 3D NAND, layers of flash cells are stacked on top of one another to increase storage density. Planar NAND, the technology now used, is pretty close to its density limit, according to a new report on Wired. When you cut through the technical language, the net…
  • How to fix the headphone jack in your iPhone: The ultimate guide

    Allyson Kazmucha
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:55 am
    So your out of warranty iPhone has a busted headphone jack. If you'd rather fix it on your own instead of buying a new iPhone, you've come to the right place. The symptoms of a broken headphone jack are similar in all models, and can include audio cutting in and out or no audio at all. In some cases, loud speaker audio won't work because your iPhone thinks headphones are plugged in when they're really not. If any of these issues sound like something you've experienced, we'll walk you step by step through the repair process. We'll also link you to all the parts and tools you'll need to get the…

  • Is the Apple Watch a Useful Medical Device? (Video)

    Roblimo
    26 Mar 2015 | 11:18 am
    Let's kill the suspense right away by answering the title question, 'Probably not.' For one thing, according to interviewee Alfred Poor, the Apple Watch is in no way linked to the Apple Research Kit. Dr. Poor is editor of the Health Tech Insider website, so he follows this kind of thing more carefully than most people. And the Apple watch is not the only device mentioned in this video (or transcript, if you prefer reading to listening). If you want to ruminate about the possibility of direct mind control, for instance, you need to know about the Thync, whose vendor calls it 'A groundbreaking…

    Soulskill
    25 Mar 2015 | 5:15 am
    An anonymous reader writes: UI designer Eli Schiff has posted an article about the "climate of fear" surrounding Apple in the software development community. He points out how developers who express criticism in an informal setting often recant when their words are being recorded, and how even moderate public criticism is often prefaced by flattery and endorsements. Beyond that, the industry has learned that they can't rely on Apple's walled garden to make a profit. The opaque app review process, the race to the bottom on pricing, and Apple's resistance to curation of the App Store are…
  • Apple Doubles MacBook Pro R/W Performance

    Lucas123 writes Benchmark tests performed on the 2015 MacBook Pro revealed it does have twice the read/write performance as the mid-2014 model. Tests performed with the Blackmagic benchmark tool revealed read/write speeds of more than 1,300MBps/1,400MBps, respectively. So what's changed? The new MacBook Pro does have a faster Intel dual-core i7 2.9GHz processor and 1866MHz LPDDR3) RAM, but the real performance gain is in the latest PCIe M.2 flash module. The 2014 model used a PCIe 2.0 x2 card and the 2015 model uses a PCIe 3.0 x4 (four I/O lanes) card. Twice the lanes, twice the speed. While…

    For anyone using Windows 7 by way of Apple's Boot Camp utility, beware: support for Windows via Boot Camp remains, but for the newest Apple laptops, it's only for Windows 8 for now. From Slashgear: This applies to the 2015 MacBook Air, and the 13-inch model of the 2015 MacBook Pro. Windows 8 will remain compatible, as will the forthcoming Windows 10. The 2013 Mac Pro also dropped Boot Camp support for Windows 7, while 2014 iMacs are still compatible, along with 2014 MacBook Airs and 2014 MacBook Pros. For those who still prefer to run Windows 7 on their Macs, there are other options. This…

A developer has discovered a hack in Google Chrome which can crash the Chrome tab on a Mac PC. The code is a 13-character special string which appears to be written in Assyrian script. Matt C has reported the bug to Google, who have marked the report as duplicate. This means that Google are aware of the problem and are reportedly working on it.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook on Twitter today shared Apple’s opposition to a controversial new law in Indiana while calling on the governor of Arkansas to veto legislation before it becomes law. Both laws relate to religious freedom protection but have been criticized as enabling LGBT discrimination. Apple joined a crowd of companies publicly opposing similar legislation passed by the state congress in Arizona last year before its governor decided to veto the bill rather than signing it into law. Apple has championed diversity and equality through participation in initiatives like the annual…

  • Should the New MacBook’s Single Port Scare You Away?

    Dann Albright
    27 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Apple recently revealed the new MacBook, and it’s a jaw-dropper. Available in silver, gold, and space gray, the new machine features a full-width keyboard, a modern 12″ chassis, a new Force Touch trackpad and a glorious Retina screen while being lighter than an 11″ MacBook Air. But it also has only a single port. Was this a blunder? Or a sign of the future? USB-C Interestingly, the port that Apple chose to include on the MacBook is USB-C, the most recent iteration of the venerable connection technology. Before the new MacBook, Macs (and pretty much everything else)…

    25 Mar 2015 | 6:30 pm
    In terms of money, Apple is on top of the world right now, pulling in more cold, hard cash from punters than ever before. But money isn’t the be-all and end-all, even for companies who live and die by the amount of profit they make. Apple in particular has built its business on the back of innovating, and it’s in danger of losing its reputation as being the company that goes into areas where others fear to tread. Tim Cook and co. need some fresh ideas. And we’re to help. Innovative Ideas For Apple Apple has become rather boring of...Read the full article: 10 Intriguing Ideas…

    Take control of your Mac’s Time Machine — from custom backup times to finding out where those 2 GB of new files are, the right apps can give you power and knowledge Apple’s own tools just don’t provide. Apple’s Time Machine is pretty simple to set up and easy to restore files from (unless you want to back up to an unsupported NAS), but that simplicity comes at a price: a lack of control.

    After following Apple retail for 14 years, I’ve reached a happy ending, and am gracefully backing away from the crazy world of following the company and its stores. No more stories or analysis, or flying out to far-flung locations to join overnight crowds,waiting for the excitement of new store opening (NSO).

    Although Apple’s Monday special event was intended to formally present Apple Watch, it seemed to be more about the company’s retail stores, which will bear the brunt of additional inventory, sales and traffic handling tasks to get the product out to buyers. In fact, employees at some stores will struggle to handle 10 separate streams of people flooding into their stores after the watch debuts. The event began with CEO Tim Cook giving a quick retail segment review, and showing photos of the new West Lake (China) store and the Apple watch display table. He announced that the…

    I was at a customer's office the other day helping to set up their new Mac system. It was a busy construction company and they needed help getting wireless scanning operational. I noticed that they were using Adobe Reader for their PDF files, so I introduced them to "*Preview*":https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201740. Once I set the Finder to open PDF files with Preview instead of Reader, I showed them how to access the scanner to scan documents right from Preview. As I had them practice this, I noticed that much of their scanning needs were for documents that they would print out, sign,…

    With all the headlines these days about data breaches, hackers, and spyware it is understandable that the safety of your information in cyberspace is on everyone’s mind these days. When we hear about companies such as TJ Maxx, Target and, most recently, TurboTax (hmm…companies that begin with the letter “t”…) getting hacked and potentially losing critical customer information, it can make consumers hesitant to use a lot of this brilliant new technology.

    I have been doing more onsite installations and lessons down here in Key West. So many times as I start to help a customer we run into the password roadblock. I was at a customer’s home yesterday and needed to set up her email and iCloud account. I asked for the administrator password for her Mac and she went to a little pile of sticky notes and tried to find the right one and the scene was repeated for each password we needed. I then proceeded to show her Keychain Access and I could see the light bulb hovering above her head as she understood the value of this app from Apple. Mac OS X…
  • App Review: Tetris Blitz

    12 Feb 2015 | 12:47 pm
    2014 marks the 30th anniversary of the most important technological development of all time: Tetris. There are probably many of you out there that will insist that the Macintosh computer was the most important tech release of 1984, and I will grant that it is a close second, but I am still standing behind the classic tile-matching puzzle video game. For those of you who don't know, Tetris is a very simple game in which any of seven different blocks, which are every possible combination of four smaller square blocks that have adjoining sides, fall from above and your job is to move them…

Then it syncs back to the Doxie app running on your Mac or iOS device, letting you save scans, share them, or send them to the cloud. The IRS has even gotten with the program: It accepts scanned receipts. So there’s never been a better time to overthrow the tyranny of paper. [Read on Six Colors.]
