  • iPad Air 2 proves rugged, but battery life disappoints

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:18 pm
    The iPad Air 2 is still tough. My old iPad 2 got dropped several times over the nearly four years I used it, and it’s still in fine fettle, now handed-off to my wife. Other than a small scratch on the aluminum back, there was never any discernible damage caused by the unintended trips to the floor. However, since upgrading to a new thinner, lighter iPad Air 2, I’ve wondered whether it would prove as robust subjected to similar indignities, especially after the “bendable iPhones” flap last fall, given that the 6.1 mm thick Air 2 is even thinner than the iPhone 6. A couple of…

  • First Apple Watch health IT apps bring important messages to the wrist

    17 Apr 2015 | 2:09 pm
    Many of the first Apple Watch health IT apps will give doctors faster access to critical information and ease communication between health care providers, while other apps will attempt to get patients more engaged with their health. Don’t expect doctors to glance at their wrists to view X-rays or a patient’s chart, though. Given the Apple Watch’s screen size, functions that involve text messages work best on the device. “Doctors get that the watch is a tool to help them deal with information overload,” said Michael Nusimow, CEO of drchrono, which makes EHR (electronic health record)…

    If you’re buying a new 12-inch MacBook and scrambling to find cables that work with the laptop’s new USB Type-C port, you have more options than Apple’s pricey cables. MacBook users can instead buy less expensive USB Type-C cables from third parties. The new MacBook also can work with third-party USB Type-C chargers, a big change from the company’s proprietary MagSafe chargers, which are used for other MacBooks. The MacBook has just one USB Type-C port, and MacBook owners may need to buy a range of cables for charging and connections to monitors or external peripherals. “Your…

    Wireless keyboards for the iPad come in all shapes and sizes. Some duplicate Apple’s Smart Cover approach by only covering the screen when it’s not in use. Others forgo attaching to the iPad, letting users decide which case to use. And some keyboards offer complete protection. Such is the case (forgive the pun) with the Zagg Folio.The Folio is available in black or white, complete with a faux-leather back to add an appealing flair to its otherwise mundane plastic housing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    The Securities and Exchange Commission launched an informal investigation on Thursday into the details of the Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) notorious $1.3 billion iPad project, which was supposed to give every child in the nation's second-largest school system an iPad loaded with Pearson curriculum. The Los Angeles Times said that a source inside LAUSD confirmed that the commission was asking questions about how the bond money that was set aside to fund the program was used. The iPad program met many roadblocks since its inception in 2013, and recent allegations of…

    Shipping dates for most Apple Watches have slipped into May or June at this point. According to an internal Apple Store memo obtained by The Telegraph, the high demand combined with Apple's initial supply will keep the watches from being sold in brick-and-mortar Apple stores until at least June. Apple will still allow customers to come into Apple Stores and try the watches on—we came away generally impressed by the experience last week—but the memo from Apple retail head Angela Ahrendts says that actual orders will need to be placed online "through the month of May."

LAUSD also asked for a “multi-millon dollar refund” for software that had already been delivered, according to local public radio station KPCC.

    Andrew Cunningham

    As Apple's laptops have become thinner and lighter, they've also become more tightly integrated. The tradeoffs here are the same as they've ever been: lighter laptops that take up less space are obviously desirable, and manufacturing practices like bonding glass directly with LCD panels improve display quality beyond what would normally be possible. The downside is that you can do increasingly little to repair or upgrade these laptops yourself, and iFixit's teardown of the 2015 MacBook shows that it's even harder to work on than recent MacBook Airs and Pros.

About two hours and 9 minutes into the podcast, both Gruber and Stern began lamenting the poor performance they saw with third-party Apple Watch apps.

  • Apple Leaves Chinese CNNIC Root In OS X and iOS Trusted Stores

    timothy
    9 Apr 2015 | 8:31 am
    Trailrunner7 writes When it was revealed late last month that a Chinese certificate authority had allowed an intermediate CA to issue unauthorized certificates for some Google domains, both Google and Mozilla reacted quickly and dropped trust in CNNIC altogether. Apple on Wednesday released major security upgrades for both of its operating systems, and the root certificate for CNNIC, the Chinese CA at the heart of the controversy, remains in the trusted stores for iOS and OS X. The company has not made any public statements on the incident or the continued inclusion of CNNIC's certificates in…

  • Survivors gather for 20th anniversary of Oklahoma City bombing

    19 Apr 2015 | 4:10 am
    By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - When Priscilla Salyers attends Sunday's anniversary ceremony for victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, she will be thinking how far she has come in fighting depression and survivor's guilt. She and hundreds of other survivors will bow their heads at the 20th Remembrance Ceremony at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, marking the day a cargo truck with more than two tons of explosives blew up, killing 168 people.

  • Life or death? Boston bomber's trial turns to sentencing

    19 Apr 2015 | 4:03 am
    By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is set to return to court on Tuesday for the next phase of his trial, when prosecutors will argue that he should be sentenced to death for his role in the deadly attack in 2013. In sharp contrast to the guilt phase of the trial, when lawyers for the ethnic Chechen defendant did not contest that their client had killed three people and injured 264 in the bombing, the next four weeks are expected to feature emotional testimony from both sides as Tsarnaev fights for his life. The question of whether Tsarnaev,…

  • My Work Here is Done

    Gary Allen
    27 Mar 2015 | 8:19 pm
    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). I began this Web site as simply a way of celebrating the fun of grand openings and the close friendship of the people I met when I arrived in a new country or city. My first overnight camp-out was with my son Devin on the sidewalk in front of the epic Palo Alto store in…

  • More Streams of People To Fill The Retail Stores

    Gary Allen
    11 Mar 2015 | 12:47 am
    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…

    Despite the Apple stores’ award-winning architecture, their revenue generation and employment opportunities, a group of Manhattan (NYC) residents is circulating a petition to block the opening of the future Upper East Side Apple store, calling it “the wrong store in the wrong place.” The residents say the store will create a “serious disruption” for their quiet residential community, with long lines of customers on narrow sidewalks, overnight camp-outs for new products, delivery truck congestion and street vendor food carts crowding the area. They are pursuing a…

    The Market Gets Into Spring Today Apple blasted off at the open and never looked back. And Apple wasn’t alone, every major market joined in on the party. The reason the market got boosted was most likely due to a positive economic report in the PMI Services Index beating expectations. This was welcome news after a long line of dreadful economic reports over the past few weeks. This is of course the first full week of April, and in many eyes it’s also the first full week of Spring. And that means warmer weather, opening day in Major League Baseball, the Boston Marathon and an end…

    My brother and T-GAAP colleague wrote an article yesterday, “Over / Under: Angela Ahrendts out by June?” We have never in our four year history seen such a lightning rod for positive and negative comments about the same article. Mark was called brilliant and an idiot at the same time (funny because sometime I think he is a brilliant idiot — but that’s another story).  In all seriousness we at T-GAAP are very aware that the problem with the Apple Watch launch isn’t solely due to Angela Ahrendts’ new way of launching a fashion item via the…

    The amazing Apple Watch was once available to own starting April 24, 2015. Now the watch is only shipping to customers who have pre-ordered the device on April 10th. Yesterday Apple removed their 04.24.2015 date stamp on the Apple Watch’s home page, replacing it with "The Watch is coming." According to The Telegraph, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Retail and Online sales, Angela Ahrendt, sent out a letter to Apple retail employees explaining the watch will not be available until June. Using corporate speak, Ahrendts is in CYA…

    The new MacBook was supposed to be in the hands of tens of thousands by now. When Tim Cook showed off this bad-boy laptop at the March 2015 special event, all I could think was — hmmm, my MacBook Air is now looking rather clunky (it's only a mid-2013 model heaven’s sake!). Apple’s attention to detail is impressive: the new Force Touch trackpad, butterfly individually lit LED keyboard, retina display, smaller size and most of all the weight — only 2lbs! In addition to all that goodness comes a choice of three stylish…

What I discovered yesterday during my try-on appointment was that the Apple Watch experience was vastly different compared to any other time I’ve stepped into an Apple retail store to check out a new product. I showed up to my appointment about 30 minutes late, but I was told that was not a problem, and an Apple…

Another Apple product, largely overshadowed by Apple Watch, was also launched. Or was it? The all-new MacBook was to be available for purchase – not just pre-order – on April 10th. Friday morning, I gathered in line at Portland, Oregon's downtown Apple store.

In fact, employees at some stores will struggle to handle 10 separate streams of people flooding into their stores after the watch debuts.

    Despite the Apple stores’ award-winning architecture, their revenue generation and employment opportunities, a group of Manhattan (NYC) residents is circulating a petition to block the opening of the future Upper East Side Apple store, calling it “the wrong store in the wrong place.” The residents say the store will create a “serious disruption” for their quiet residential community, with long lines of customers on narrow sidewalks, overnight camp-outs for new products, delivery truck congestion and street vendor food carts crowding the area. They are pursuing a…

  • Android vs. iOS: Revenue Per User Won't Catch Up and That's Okay

    Mike Oertli
    3 Apr 2015 | 8:43 am
    The metric of choice for comparing iOS to Android is average revenue per user, or ARPU (spoken phonetically exactly as you'd guess). This is fine, it is certainly technically accurate, but it isn't exactly relevant for most of the discussions where it is used as ammo. It's like comparing the average revenue per user of all car buyers vs. only Ferrari* buyers – it tells you what you already know.Notice how I didn't say Hyundai vs. Ferrari, that would be a hyperbolic falsity, I specifically said all cars because that's much more aligned with the reality of Android.

Contrary to popular belief, there is minimal inconvenience. For any site or service that you care about, the benefits outweigh the cost by several orders of magnitude.It's worth taking a look at who all supports it and noticing the pattern that that so many "old dogs" (companies that are huge and have been around for a long time) don't support it, but newer companies do.

Voice is fine, video has its place too, but there is nothing today that can replace the rapid and highly private aspects of text-based messaging – no headphones required. Given this, it is no surprise that iMessage has been a hit, but other cross-platform apps have been even bigger hits (judging by user count). WhatsApp, Telegram, Hangouts, and others are all trying to be the go-to app for messaging.This isn't a roundup or definitive review.

The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

What CloudFlare supposed to do is to protect your site from malicious attacks and make it faster by caching it’s content, but I honestly didn’t see any changes what so ever, but I kept it installed because they do have one great thing that I use which is their DNS management, it’s really easy to use and control, but other than that, CloudFlare felt like just a service that my traffic go through with no…

    Bomb after bomb this is how Apple dropped the last three iOS updates to the jailbreak community. To be more specific iOS 8.1.3, iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3 patched all exploits which were used by TaiG 8.2, Pangu 8.3 and PP jailbreak teams for their respective jailbreak 8.2/8.3 tools. For some of you these teams don’t look too familiar or wondering where are the old teams that used to create jailbreak tools like team evad3rs. Well we don’t know but last year out of nowhere we started seeing a rise of some Chinese jailbreak teams who started giving quite fast jailbreak capability for every iPhone,…

Even though some are for a small period like FlappyBird but some will have much longer period to be more exact years. One of these games that I’m talking about is Hay Day. Even though there were other apps similar to this like FarmVille from zynga, this farming game is quite addictive. Developed by Supercell and launched in 2012 Hay Day and another app generate $30 million/month and in 2013 occupied 4th place in top games for the most revenue generated worldwide.

    There are lots of people who critic Apple devices but if we take a closer look at every iPhone we will see an impressive piece of engineering and design. But like everything it has also its drawbacks and the only drawback is limitation. Not by design or hardware, but by software. If you are devoted to the Apple brand you will surely know about what I’m talking about. But to make thing clear, Apple doesn’t want users to install apps from 3rd party sources, they say that this way they will protected their users, but this limitation is like a double-edge sword because for users it will be…

He says the total first-batch shipment should be about four million pieces, with one million of them allocated to the US market.

The company, according to its website, “brings revolution to mobile photography” and introduces “amazing new features on handsets, tablets, and ultra-books.” In 2014, LinX said it had “successfully developed” miniature multi-aperture cameras designed for mobile devices. The camera modules are nearly half the height of a standard mobile camera and are capable of “creating stunning color images and high accuracy depth maps,” the company claims. The LinX…

  • Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions Review

    Patrick Garde
    17 Apr 2015 | 2:36 am
    Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is a perfect example of when a movie (or TV show, in this case) shouldn’t be made into a game. I’m not saying that there are no good examples of when this works, Star Wars Battlefront and Republic Commando are my two favorite games, ever. However, Star Wars Rebels is a phenomenal show while the game based on it, aside from a pretty legitimate intro cut scene, is just okay. It is a simple side-scroller that may be considered ordinary. Obviously, its target audience is aimed at young ones. It’s just unfortunate that it lacks creativity. Star Wars…

    Fast & Furious: Legacy is a beautiful game for iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android from Kabam that’s based on the popular movie franchise, The Fast and the Furious. Just like the other free-to-play racing games, it is divided into different segments which might test your patience. Nevertheless, this movie tie-in video game is decent enough to play. In Fast & Furious: Legacy, I began as a “driver” in Tokyo, and I was being chased by a couple of relentless police officer. Sadly, I wasn’t actually driving. In the first of the four game modes, Street Race, you simply move your vehicle…

    Silly Sausage in Meat Land has a fun and unique game mechanic. This free-to-play game for iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android from Nitrome provides an enjoyable gameplay experience although the freemium elements may bother some. Silly Sausage in Meat Land is an iPhone game about a dog named, you guessed it, Silly Sausage. Silly Sausage must travel through Meat Land, which has surprisingly little meat in it, collecting gems. Due to the title, I wondered why our canine companion wasn’t scooping up meat products, but gems fits the greedy payment model. Silly Sausage traverses the…

    13 Apr 2015 | 1:29 am
    Mr Jump is a small game with a big heart, and even bigger jumps. From 1Button SARL comes the undeniably simple, and yet incredibly frustrating, Mr Jump. This iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) game puts the players in the hands of a blocky man as he jumps across different environments, attempting to reach an end point. Beside a couple of advertisements, everything this iPhone game has, from its art direction to the gameplay, is flawless. Mr Jump is similar to just about every endless running game out there, except that each stage has an end, and each stage is very different from one another.

  • Apple's Watch Strategy Embraces the 80-20 Rule

    Neil Cybart
    17 Apr 2015 | 8:32 am
    We are starting to get early reads on how Apple Watch pre-order mix is trending and there are a number of surprises. It is obvious why Apple will not disclose Apple Watch revenue data. By knowing which Watch collections are selling and at what price, it would be easier for competitors to reach conclusions on customer preferences. Using early pre-orders reports and a few long-standing theories, the Apple Watch will likely be loosely guided by the premise behind the 80-20 rule, where approximately 80% of Apple Watch profits will come from 20% of…

    After spending time with Apple Watch, it became abundantly clear why people will like the device: it's new and cool. A device that can fit into one's life, but still seemingly blend away when not in use, shares many similarities to the iPhone. While coolness may not be enough to use as the conclusion of a 5,000-word product review, and it certainly won't cause the general public to run out to an Apple store and spend $400+ on a watch, it will lead to imagination. Apple Watch's long-term success will depend on…

This past Friday, the general public had its first chance to find out what Apple meant as Apple Watch try-on appointments were rolled out.  I selected one of the first time slots at my local Apple store as in many ways I was more interested in the way Apple had set up these try-on appointments than actually trying out the device. Needless to say, I ended up learning quite a bit. While I have some constructive criticism and…

    Apple Watch reviews were published yesterday. The majority of reviewers thought the Apple Watch was a great device and has potential to be a game changer in how they use technology. The problem is that unless you read every review, you wouldn't have known that. Instead, the collective conclusion from the web yesterday was that the Apple Watch flopped with early reviews. There were 21 Apple Watch reviews published, but the 4 reviews that were more critical of the device got the most attention, leaving the 14 glowing reviews behind. Meanwhile, most of the important features of…

Today it is a watch. Tomorrow it will be something else. Next year it may be completely different. After years of development, the next phase of Apple Watch has arrived with preorders beginning on Friday.

While Apple is still working on implementing an official solution to this problem, a new workaround allows for many accessibility features to be enabled right now.Yesterday, Darcy Burnard tweeted that VoiceOver could be enabled on demo units at the Apple Store by asking Siri to "Turn on VoiceOver". I have since confirmed that other accessibility features, such as zoom, can be enabled in a similar manner, though I will focus on…

As Nathan notes, "she has taken over several of our Apple products." Whether it's her iPod Classic, iPhone 5, MacBook Air "pillow", Time Capsule, or iPad 2, Yoko seems perfectly at ease with all of her technological buddies.
