    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.

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

    Macworld
    27 Mar 2015 | 4:11 pm
    Lots of people are leaping onto the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom bandwagon. 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…

    Earlier this month, Apple began inviting a select number of developers to an Apple Watch development lab in Sunnyvale, California, located near the company's main Cupertino campus. Developers were invited to reserve a testing appointment to test their Apple Watch apps on actual Apple Watch devices to get ready for the device's April 24 launch.

    Pixar has released its Renderman command-line 3D-rendering tool for free, given that you use it for non-commercial purposes. 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.

  • Chrome for Mac no longer crashes when loading strings that can’t be named

    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.

    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…

    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…

    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…

  • Developers and the Fear of Apple

    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…

    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…
  • For Boot Camp Users, New Macs Require Windows 8 Or Newer

    21 Mar 2015 | 6:19 pm
    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…
  • OS X Users: 13 Characters of Assyrian Can Crash Your Chrome Tab

    21 Mar 2015 | 11:48 am
    abhishekmdb writes No browsers are safe, as proved yesterday at Pwn2Own, but crashing one of them with just one line of special code is slightly different. 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.

  • 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…

    Apple Watch hype has hit a fever pitch, but don't think the mania is over quite yet. The watch does not go on pre-sale until April 10, thus the noise should last at least another month before settling down. Meanwhile, MacBook owners  – including us at T-GAAP  – are embroiled in debating the merits of the latest MacBook versus the rest of the refreshed MacBook lineup.

    Since last Fall, all the attention of those who carefully follow what Apple does have been focused on Apple Watch, iPhone, Apple Pay and most recently a stunning new MacBook. From all the predictions from way back in 2010 until now (including some here at T-GAAP), Apple TV has made little progress from its hobby status. While Tim Cook and Company did announce a lower price at the last Keynote, from $99 to $69, Apple TV pretty much remains the same. While options (aka channels) have grown in number, the latest being CNNgo, the interface has remained the same for…

    Beautiful. Elegant. Practical. Gotta have one! These are descriptions of the forthcoming Apple Watch. But what makes the Apple Watch “Genius” is not merely its design, it is what it can do when paired with iPhone. During his most recent Keynote, Tim Cook reiterated that “Apple Watch was designed to work with iPhone.” In that one phrase is the entire philosophy of Apple Watch and why it was made. Apple Watch may cut the need to look at iPhone 100-150 times a day to 50 or less — because you’ll look at your Apple Watch to view…

Giving all my personal and company data to a Cloud owned by some other entity — whether Apple, Google, Microsoft or Yahoo! — has always made me nervous. Maybe I’m über-paranoid, or maybe I’m crazy like a fox. One thing I have appreciated about Tim Cook is his repeated refrain of being very concerned about Apple customer’s privacy. Unlike chief rival Google who makes money on information they collect via their search engine, email service and other online apps, Apple has claimed it will not…

    We all hide files on Macs and PCs. It could be those important documents, that secret project on AutoCAD that you’re working on. It could be serial numbers or notes you don’t want anyone reading. At first, you may think you don’t need an app that can hide files for you. Maybe you feel you have nothing to hide. Maybe. However, after using your Mac for a while, you may think differently. We all have something that we keep for ourselves, away from wandering you eyes. As a Mac user, I prefer to do this in a beautiful manner. I enjoy having the ability to use a beautifully…

    Keeping your site secure is a very important thing to do because you don’t want anyone to just get an access to your site and mess things up for you that you’ve built over the years. There’s many ways to do that, you can change the permalink to your login page, choose a strong password, delete the default “Admin” user, Password Protect wp-login.php and one of my favorite is to add Two Factor Authentication. I wrote about Authy many times, here, here and here. Authy is the best Two Factor Authentication app available on all devices and platform. Authy…

  • SolarCity Files Lawsuit Over SRP Gouging

    3 Mar 2015 | 8:12 am
    SolarCity: “Last Thursday, Arizona utility Salt River Project approved a new pricing plan designed to punish customers who choose to go solar. Under the new plan, SRP customers who generate their own power have to pay additional “distribution charges” and “demand charges” that other SRP customers do not. These discriminatory penalties add up to hundreds of dollars per year, and make a competitive rooftop solar business impossible within SRP territory. On Monday, we responded: we filed a lawsuit in federal court in Arizona, asking the court to stop SRP’s anti-competitive…

Lens distortion, which is the first panel in the sidebar, is corrected automatically, based on DxO’s database. The Perspective tool corrects vertical, horizontal, 4-point, and 8-point distortions. You can find the first three in other apps, as well (Capture One Pro 7, for example, has an identical perspective-correction tool); however, the 8-point correction feature in ViewPoint 2 is unique and offers dramatic…

That’s not because the programmer doesn’t want to be part of the service, but because Apple hasn’t approached them. Comcast acknowledged its non-talks with Apple yesterday in a letter it sent to the Federal Communications Commission as part of its effort to acquire Time Warner Cable. The letter is a response to a filing from Stop Mega Comcast, a coalition opposed to the deal. Apple Web TV service or not, NBC still hopes to…

    Flop Rocket, from developer Butterscotch Shenanigans, is a goofy side-scroller about some astronauts trying to take-off from a space game. Part Jetpack Joyride and part its own crazy formula, Flop Rocket is an incredibly fun and challenging arcade game for iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android where players have a distinct – if seemingly impossible, due to free to pay barriers – goal, in lieu of the common endless game mode. From the start, it’s apparent that this game is about space shenanigans, featuring two overzealous and random astronauts as they get pumped for their…

    Prepare to become addicted to yet another simple mobile game for iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android. Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire fits into the genre of endless survival in a way, and is very unique in many other ways. This arcade game from Nitrome succeeds in its simple but stylish pixelated graphics, enticing gameplay based on beating high scores, and a lack of free-to-play gimmicks that many other free mobile games suffer from. The player takes control of a mighty wizard who is actively defending a castle from invading warriors. Soldiers of varying shape and size drop down from…

    Age of Thrones is as infuriating as it is fun – and for good reason. This iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) and Android game from Nexrage Studios is a tactician’s strategic challenge. Based heavily in a medieval fantasy world, it is a sandbox tower defense game where there are practically no bounds on where you place your towers. In Age of Thrones, there seems to be specific allusions to the similarly titled Game of Thrones in world and style. Aside from this, this strategy game has its own unique story and style. There has been an era of constant war and chaos, and a lone hero must put…

World Zombination is an iOS game (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad) from Proletariat that does a pretty good job at keeping the infected at bay, save for a few weak points. The human team is slightly more tactical, and more closely lines up with the gameplay of a traditional tower defense game. There are squad areas where the player can place a variety of different units to hold off the zombie horde. These units…

    Apple will announce an update to its capital return program next month (likely in conjunction with its 2Q15 earnings release). Earlier this week, I took a closer look at Apple's quarterly cash dividend. Turning to share buyback, I expect Apple's board to approve a $35 to $45 billion increase to the buyback program, bringing total authorization to $125 to $135 billion. With Apple stock currently trading at a 13x forward P/E multiple, management will continue to look at buyback as an appropriate way to return excess capital to shareholders. Assuming the share…

Many were quick to point out Twitter CFO Anthony Noto also came from Wall Street in an attempt to frame Google's hire as evidence of the ongoing battle for talent between Wall Street and Silicon Valley. Instead, Google's hire deals more with paranoia than a battle for talent. Today's tech leaders are paranoid about becoming irrelevant.

Apple has repurchased $73 billion of its stock, nearly three times as much as the $27 billion spent on cash dividends. However, from a signaling effect, cash dividends may do more than share buyback in portraying management's opinions and views about future business prospects. Management included language in its financial filings that Apple intends to increase its…

    Apple's relatively nimble retail footprint will play a crucial role in selling Apple Watch. Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac reported yesterday that Apple is planning on setting up Apple Watch demo areas where 10 customers can receive personalized 15-minute demos. I suspect a decent number of Apple Watch pre-orders will likely take advantage of Apple's offer, and get a demo/fitting, since choice and comfort are important watch elements. It is conceivable that over the two week preview period starting April 10th, including launch…

The campaign is currently funded at 132% of its goal, but you can still pick up one for US$70 -- this is a product that's expected to retail for over $100…
