    “Microsoft last week surprised the tech masses when the company unveiled a futuristic holographic headset called a HoloLens,” Yoni Heisler writes for TUAW. “The device is a prototype for the time being, but nonetheless got many folks in the tech world excited.” “Engadget was compelled to ask why Apple isn’t delivering in the excitement department the way they used to,” Heisler writes. “Cutting to the chase, the Engadget editorial bluntly asks, ‘When did Apple become the boring one?'” “Has Apple, in fact, become boring?

In an interview with The Telegraph, Woodside states the company had plans to include the finger-sensing feature in the Nexus 6, which was launched late last year, but due to Apple's poaching of "the best supplier" for the technology and other suppliers not meeting quality expectations, Motorola decided to remove the feature before launch. “The secret behind that is that it was…

    One of the things that has certainly helped Apple be successful is making both the hardware and the software that runs its devices. Because of this, issues of compatibility have always been less problematic on Macs than they have on PCs. But when 2007 rolled around, and Apple introduced the iPhone, Apple no longer controlled the users’ end-to-and experience. Using this device depended on not just hardware and software, but also a mobile phone network. Sure, using a Mac on the Internet has also depended on ISPs (Internet service providers), but Internet access contracts are simpler, and…

  • Apple readies fix for Thunderstrike bootkit exploit in next OS X release

    Dan Goodin
    24 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    A fix for the Thunderstrike proof-of-concept bootkit attack has made its way into a beta version of Apple's OS X, according to a just-published report. The new fix may indicate that a patch isn't far from general release. The exploit was dubbed Thunderstrike because it spreads through maliciously modified peripheral devices connected to a Mac's Thunderbolt interface. When plugged into a Mac that's booting up, the device injects what's known as an option ROM into the extensible firmware interface (EFI), the firmware responsible for starting a Mac's system management mode and enabling other…

One part of his proposal in particular has garnered attention: Chen thinks net neutrality rules in the US should force Apple and Netflix to make apps for BlackBerry hardware. Net neutrality proposals generally focus on Internet service providers, banning discrimination against Internet content and applications. Chen wants makers of software to have to follow neutrality rules as well. While BlackBerry makes its own messaging service available…

    Google has just updated Chrome for iOS to version 40, and the new browser adds new things from both Google and Apple's ecosystems. On the Google side, Chrome 40 is the latest of the company's iOS apps to pick up the new Material Design aesthetic introduced in Android 5.0. Other iOS apps like the Google search app and the Google Maps app had already picked up Material Design in iOS, so the UI may already be familiar to you. On Apple's side of the fence, Chrome 40 adds support for the Handoff feature introduced in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite—Chrome for iOS users should now be able to bounce…
  • Report: HomeKit uses AppleTV as a smart home hub, sometimes [Updated]

    Andrew Cunningham
    14 Jan 2015 | 10:22 am
    Apple announced its HomeKit smart home framework back at WWDC in June of 2014, but since then Apple has been relatively quiet about it. The company finalized the licensing requirements for its partners back in October, and the first certified wireless chips reportedly began going out in November, but there has been little official news. Some companies with HomeKit-enabled products were at CES last week, though, and they were able to reveal a few functional details. One of the things that HomeKit will enable is centralized control for multiple smart home devices, something you'll be able…

  • Legacy TestFlight Service Shutting Down on February 26

    Federico Viticci
    26 Jan 2015 | 9:41 am
    Apple has informed developers that the legacy TestFlightApp.com beta testing service will shut down on February 26: The services offered at TestFlightApp.com will no longer be available after February 26, 2015. To prepare for the TestFlightapp.com closure, developers and team leaders are recommended to transfer their testers to the all-new TestFlight Beta Testing in iTunes Connect. The legacy TestFlight website has continued working in spite of Apple's acquisition of TestFlight last year and subsequent integration in iTunes Connect. Apple is providing developers with instructions to migrate…
  • Twitterrific 5.9 Brings Media Improvements

    26 Jan 2015 | 7:03 am
    Multiple images in Twitterrific 5.9. In my in-depth look at Twitter clients for iOS from December 2014, I noted Twitterrific’s fantastic support for iOS 8 extensions and thoughtful design touches, but lamented the app’s lack of integration with modern Twitter media features. In particular, Twitterrific didn’t support multiple images in tweets and animated GIFs; compared to Tweetbot, Twitterrific didn’t have inline playback for popular third-party sharing services such as Vine and Instagram either. With today’s 5.9 update, The Iconfactory has considerably improved…
  • From System 1.0 to OS X Yosemite

    Federico Viticci
    25 Jan 2015 | 7:52 am
    From Steven Troughton-Smith's fascinating (and successful) attempt to write a Mac app capable of running from System 1.0 all the way up to Yosemite: The more I dug into it, the more I came to the conclusion that Carbon was probably one of the most important things Apple did in building OS X. Even today it provides source compatibility for a huge chunk of the classic Mac OS software base. It kept the big companies from ditching Apple outright when they were needed the most, and gave them a huge runway - 16 years to port perhaps millions of lines of code to OS X while still being able to…
  • App Developers: Try TestFlight

    Federico Viticci
    23 Jan 2015 | 5:59 am
    From the Supertop blog (makers of Castro and Unread): Shortly after iOS 8 was released, Apple opened this new beta testing service to iOS developers. When compared to the previous testing process, it is a major improvement and I am grateful to the team behind it. It is a sign that Apple cares about third party developers and about helping us improve the quality of the software we provide. In the past few months, I've been testing about 50 apps with TestFlight, and, as a user, I think the system is way better than the old days of beta testing with Hockey and the original TestFlight. I don't…

    MacDailyNews
    26 Jan 2015 | 3:30 pm
    “Microsoft’s Windows OEM Pro and non-Pro revenue both fell 13% Y/Y in FQ2,” Eric Jhonsa reports for Seeking Alpha. “The Pro slowdown is blamed on slowing business PC sales, academic discounts, and ‘mix returning to pre-Windows XP end of support levels,'” Jhonsa reports. “The non-Pro decline is due to unit growth coming from cheaper hardware that Microsoft [for which] is providing discounted license fees.” Jhonsa reports, “Commercial Windows volume license revenue fell 3%.” Read more in the full article here.

    “Microsoft last week surprised the tech masses when the company unveiled a futuristic holographic headset called a HoloLens,” Yoni Heisler writes for TUAW. “The device is a prototype for the time being, but nonetheless got many folks in the tech world excited.” “Engadget was compelled to ask why Apple isn’t delivering in the excitement department the way they used to,” Heisler writes. “Cutting to the chase, the Engadget editorial bluntly asks, ‘When did Apple become the boring one?'” “Has Apple, in fact, become boring?

    “It’s been about 2 ½ years since Apple joined the dividend paying universe. Since then, it’s slowly lifted the quarterly dividend to its current level of $0.47 per share, which corresponds to a yield of about 1.7% at current prices,” Dave Dierking writes for Seeking Alpha. “That puts it a little shy of the S&P 500’s current yield of 1.9% and I think Apple can do much better.” “Management was right to focus on buying back its own shares given how inexpensive they were priced in the open market. With Apple’s stock price having risen…

Since then, Samsung has maintained its lead — in shipments if not profits — by offering a wide range of phones.” MacDailyNews Take: Certainly not in profits.

  • Is 2.5 Hours of Battery Life Enough for Apple Watch?

    Kraig Becker
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    As we get closer to the nebulous “early 2015″ release date for the Apple Watch, nuggets of information about the new product have started to slip out to the public at last. While the exact ship date for the device remains a mystery, inside sources have given us hints as to what to expect in terms of battery life and overall performance from Apple’s new wearable. A report published late last week indicates that the first-generation Watch will face some of the same challenges of other smartwatches, most notably in terms of battery life, which could be as low as just 2.5 hours.
  • Apple Doesn’t Like Pot: Marijuana iOS Apps Keep Getting Rejected

    Marijuana for medical purposes has been legalized in many states. From Alaska to Washington, there is a total of 23 states (plus DC) where medical marijuana is legal. Unsurprisingly, other sectors have dipped their toes in the niche. App developers, in particular, have been quick to create software that cater to pot users. From how to cook marijuana to locating marijuana dispensaries – there is a wide array of apps available. But it seems that Apple doesn’t like pot. In a report by The Denver Post, it was revealed that Apple has been rejecting Marijuana iOS apps; else, it has been…

    As the Apple Watch release draws ever nearer, the hype continues with tidbits coming out left and right. Developers have the “fortune” of having access to the WatchKit API, of course, but there really isn’t much we know about what apps will be available, much less what these apps can do. That doesn’t mean people can’t create mockups of possible apps for the Apple Watch, does it? NimbleBit, the studio that brought us awesome games like Tiny Tower and Pocket Frogs, is currently at the head of the pack with its mockup of an Apple Watch game. Called…

  • Analysts highlight extremely strong iPhone sales in China over last quarter

    Chris Barylick

    The Chinese marketplace apparently loves the iPhone 6. Per MacRumors and Financial Times, according to analysts from financial firm UBS, China accounted for 36 percent of iPhone shipments in the most recent quarter, compared to 24 percent for the U.S. The analysts also compared the numbers to 2013, noting that a year before China accounted for only 22 percent of shipments with the U.S. at 29 percent. Creative Strategies analyst Ben Bajarin concurs with the UBS report, believing around 2 million more iPhones were sold in China than in the U.S. during the quarter. With the upcoming launch of…

    This seems a bit unsavory. Per a lengthy post over on Reddit, a user under the handle of “Unagi33″ has given a detailed description as to how Apple may be censoring their iCloud email. The story goes through the user’s transition from Gmail to iCloud-based email, initial problems the user experienced and a description as to how the user, who’s studying for the bar exam, sometimes needed to include porn site addresses in emails to friends as a means of offering advice. The iCloud mail, for its part, apparently censored and/or deleted the emails linking to adult content,…

    26 Jan 2015 | 1:56 pm
    Gus Mueller: Apple is your favorite aunt or uncle, who isn’t talking about crazy future ideas, but is instead showing you how to hold a pencil correctly, or a tie your shoe. Something you can do today. Apple isn’t flailing about trying to grab onto whatever it can so, yelling out for attention. Apple is solid, reliable, dependable. And I think that is why we’re seeing so many people reacting to Apple’s software quality lately. You expect Microsoft not to deliver. But we expect Apple to. And lately, it really hasn’t felt like they’ve been doing it. Good…

    John Gruber
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:35 pm
    Charles Perry, analyzing App Store revenue numbers: To provide some context to the results, you may be familiar with the Pareto distribution. It’s the origin of the classic “80-20 rule” that’s used to explain so many phenomena that obey a power law. “Twenty percent of the people in an organization do eighty percent of the work.” “Twenty percent of the population control eighty percent of the wealth.” You hear these types of statistics a lot, but they’re usually not very accurate. Often, they are useful as a first estimate at best. So I didn’t actually expect App Store…

    The Photos section of the iCloud website has nabbed a couple of new features today. Users now enjoy new email sharing options, as well as a manual zoom slider. The new zoom slider appears in the top left corner of the Photos app, and enables you to do exactly what it implies: zoom in and out on the selected photo. Additionally, if signed into an iCloud email address, users will have a new email sharing option located in the upper right hand portion of the screen, represented by an envelope.

  • How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

    Rene Ritchie
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:53 pm
    Once you've posted a photo using Instagram, the incredibly popular social photo network, you're kind of stuck with it in its tiny, locked down form. Instagram doesn't even let you save it easily — you need to screenshot it or resort to a third-part ripper if you want to preserve it locally after-the-fact. What Instagram does let you do, however, is set it to save a high resolution "2048x2048" version of the final, filtered photo to your camera roll. (I put that in quotes because it really seems to vary, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes higher.) All you have to do is enable it. How to turn…

    26 Jan 2015 | 12:02 pm
    We live in a modern era of Mac development, but behind that there's 30 years of legacy dating back to the original Mac in 1984. It's easy to ignore the millions upon millions of lines of code that have been written for Mac operating systems from System 1.0 forward, but you do so at the peril of forgetting just how flexible and elegant a framework Apple had developed over the years. Recently Steven Troughton-Smith — who's best known for his iOS development work — decided to delve into the process of making "classic" Mac OS apps in a modern programming environment.

    12 Jan 2015 | 10:37 am
    See more at Mac Sage I’ve now had my iPhone 6 four months and I’m ready to give a balanced review. First, it should be noted that 4 months ago I upgraded from an iPhone 4s. My philosophy with Apple products in general has evolved from a “got to have the latest” mentality into a “I will upgrade when the improvements are significant” mentality. In the past 5-8 years, Apple has provoked me to upgrade it’s products on roughly a ever-other-generation schedule. And the trend seems to be towards an ever-widening gap between upgrades.

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…

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.

One might think that a polished commercial desktop offering designed for that specific lineup of computers might have less rough edges than a free open source one. Actually there's plenty of motivations to choose otherwise. A redditor asked about this trend and got some very interesting answers. What are your reasons?Read more of this story at Slashdot.

The magazine was launched in the USA in late 1985 where similar success followed. Ian Westwood, Group MD of Dennis Publishing, said: “MacUser has…

Notably the quarter only includes about a week and half of iPhone 6 sales, it’s unknown how much detail Apple will go into about the success of the launch so far—at last week’s media event the company failed to give any numbers.

  • Apple Launches “Free on iTunes” – Free Downloads for Everyone

    Softpedia News (Filip Truta)
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:50 am
    After axing 12 Days of Christmas and then iTunes Single of the Week, two well-liked promotions tied to the iTunes Store, Apple has fired up its generosity engines once more and launched a new section called Free on iTunes. Don’t get your hopes up for AAA games making the list. It’s just songs and TV shows for now, and apparently the full-length TV episodes are not all free. Which is particularly disappointing, considering that this section touts itself as an all-you-can-get area. What's avai... (read more)
  • This Is What iPad Pro with Stylus Looks Like – Renders

    Softpedia News (Filip Truta)
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:25 am
    KGI’s Ming Chi Kuo kicked off a rumor this month saying that Apple would deploy a stylus alongside the 12-inch iPad Pro, a larger version of the company’s flagship tablet computer that remains to be confirmed. “Coupled with its unfavorable cost structure, high selling prices may turn consumers off if the 12.9-inch iPad is always bundled with it. We therefore expect the stylus to be an optional accessory before sufficient user feedback is received,” Kuo said in a research note. It makes sense... (read more)

This here article shows you how to stay away from adware material. What is adware, anyway?

Like this ridiculous rumor about the iPhone 7 sporting a joystick behind its home button, for instance.

    Mike Beasley
    26 Jan 2015 | 3:09 pm
    Last week Apple posted a video showing how the calligraphy mural painted at one of its upcoming Chinese retail outlets was created just days before that store opened to the public. Today the company has posted a new video of a second mural, this time at its new Chongqing location. The store features a unique cylindrical entrance, and Apple commissioned two artists—a China-based painter and US-based photographer—to collaborate on the artwork. From the Apple Retail site: To celebrate the opening of the new Apple Store retail outlets, we have invited international artists from Chongqing to…

  • Get Some Work Done: The Best Writing Environments for Mac OS X

    Bakari Chavanu
    6 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    When tackling writing projects, you need the best writing environment possible to get the job done. Fortunately for Mac users, there’s no shortage of writing tools available for long and short form writing projects. A good writing environment provides cross-platform access, collaboration features, and multi-format support. In addition, you may want to use a program that can assist you with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming, drafting, to final edit. Scrivener ($45) For long form writing projects, such as manuals, research papers, and books, I prefer to work…

    Install (almost) any free Mac app by typing four words and hitting “Enter”. With Homebrew for Mac you can install thousands of programs with just a few keystrokes, and update them all with just a few more. If you’ve spent any time looking into cool things to do with the Mac Terminal, you know that your Mac is missing a bunch of the commands many Linux distros come with out-of-the-box: WGet, for example.

  • Mac OS X Yosemite, From The Perspective Of A Linux User

    Danny Stieben
    22 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    It’s been a while since Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” has been released into the wild, so we have a pretty good idea of how it performs. Mac OS X is also sometimes used as the poster child for a clean and elegant interface (most of the time, anyways). As a Linux writer, it’s my duty to make comparisons not only amongst Linux distros, but also against the competition. With Yosemite out and a new wave of distro releases out, it’s time to make the comparison between Yosemite and and these new releases. Which performs better? Which looks better?

    Once research is done, there are six main things every blogger needs to do: Write Format content Write Add images and embeds Write! Publish to a CMS Writing is key to the process, in case you didn’t notice, so any tool designed to make blogging easier needs to really focus on the writing experience. You only need glance at Desk for Mac ($30) to see developer John Saddington, himself a longtime blogger, understands this.

  • Apple Offered Ahrendts Strong Incentives To Join

    Gary Allen
    23 Jan 2015 | 7:08 pm
    A new financial filing shows that Apple made extraordinary financial offers to Sr. VP Angela Ahrendts last year, hoping she would quit her job at Burberry, move back to the United States and take control of the company’s most visible operations, the on-line and retail stores. At the time, Apple says that Ahrendts was among the highest-paid executives in the UK, and so they assembled a combination of Apple stock grants, an annual salary and bonus, relocation expenses and even an unusual severance package to lure her to the company. Ahrendts joined Apple May 1, 2014 to provide the…

    In a unique duplication of a high-profile store design, Apple is reusing the glass cylinder entrance architecture of the Pudong (Shanghai) store for the Guotai Plaza store now under construction in Chongqing (China). Last month workers dismantled the huge steel structure that has been covering the entrance for nearly the past year, revealing a 30-foot tall glass structure that will lead to the underground store. The entrance is set in a plaza and surrounded by tall buildings, a setting similar to the Pudong store, but on a smaller scale. The architecture was first revealed by IFO in July…

    The visuals teams at Apple’s retail stores are installing new wall graphics that extend a Web campaign that spotlights artistic applications for iPad, iPhone and Mac. While store graphics have frequently mirrored the design and colors of Apple’s Web pages, this seems to be the first time a specific promotional campaign has spanned both the Web and retail stores. In this case, the “Start something new” Web page appeared on-line in Japan last week, and has since been extended to apple.com in other countries. “Every piece in this gallery was created on an Apple…

    That’s my brand new Late 2014 MacBook Pro above and on December 22nd at around 8:30PM I got a spinning beach ball cursor. It happens sometimes. However, it seemed that more than just the current app was having issues so I did a force reboot and that pretty blue display you see above is all I saw from that moment forward. Normally in a case of system corruption you can hold down a variety of keys to bypass the internal drive and boot up either from the built-in recovery partition or an external/network drive. However, none of the usual keys worked. Holding down Option, D, R, etc. did…

I was amazed to find that many of those “antiques” are still in use by pre-schoolers in a couple of local private schools, and they are learning from them. It says something for our Apple technology. That said, many of us will be getting new computers or iPads or iPods for the Holidays. What will you do with the old ones? Think about passing that “old” iMac on to a youngster who could…

    As the poet said: “There’s an app for that!” Sure there are LOTS of apps out there but which one should you choose?

It learns that I like it cool when I sleep and warm in the morning. It reduces your carbon footprint by only providing heat or cooling when you need it. While it is super easy to install and…
