Bankrate: Americans prefer cash over mobile payments...

Cash is king this holiday season; seven in 10 Americans plan to use either cash (39 percent) or a debit card (31 percent) for most of their holiday purchases, according to a new Bankrate.com study. Twenty-two preferred credit cards and three percent said checks over mobile payment systems such as Apple Pay.

Millennials are the most averse to credit (48 percent favor debit cards and 36 percent prefer cash). 18-29 year-olds chose debit cards almost twice as much as older adults.

Mobile payments aren’t popular among any demographics. Just 14 percent of U.S. adults who use a smartphone or a similar handheld device plan to use services such as Apple Pay or Android Pay even once this season, including 19 percent of millennials, according to Bankrate.com. Among those who don’t plan to make mobile payments, the top reasons were “not secure enough” (36 percent) and “other payment methods are more convenient” (31 percent).

On iFixit and the Right To Repair

Jason Koebler writes: Motherboard sent a reporter to the Electronics Reuse Convention in New Orleans to investigate the important but threatened world of smartphone and electronics repair. As manufacturers start using proprietary screws, offer phone lease programs and use copyright law to threaten repair professionals, the right-to-repair is under more threat than ever. "That Apple and other electronics manufacturers don't sell repair parts to consumers or write service manuals for them isn't just annoying, it's an environmental disaster, [iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens] says. Recent shifts to proprietary screws, the ever-present threat of legal action under a trainwreck of a copyright law, and an antagonistic relationship with third-party repair shops shows that the anti-repair culture at major manufacturers isn't based on negligence or naiveté, it's malicious."

Apple officially acquires Faceshift, the company...

Earlier this year a rumor began floating around that claimed Apple had acquired Faceshift, the company behind the motion capture technology used in Star Wars. Now, TechCrunch reports that the acquisition has become official and Apple has acquired the Zurich-based Faceshift startup.

Apple has not directly confirmed the acquisition, but issued its standard statement regarding its purchasing of smaller companies. “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” the company said.

This isn’t the first motion capture startup Apple has acquired. Over recent years, the company has acquired PrimeSense,...

Earlier this year, MacRumors uncovered some evidence suggesting Zurich-based real-time motion capture firm Faceshift was acquired by Apple, and as of today, that acquisition has been confirmed by Apple in a statement given to TechCrunch.

"Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans."

Prior to being acquired by Apple, Faceshift worked with game and animation studios on technology designed to quickly and accurately capture facial expressions using 3D sensors, including Faceshift Studio software with plugins for Maya and Unity. The company was also working toward consumer-facing software like a Skype plugin that would support real-time avatars for...

The Samoan pipeline

California Sunday Magazine:

Over the years football coaches have found on the island a ready inventory of large, big-boned, and nimble Samoans, with the kind of solid base that football coaches love: massive from the waist down but still able to move their feet. Samoans’ facility with footwork is often attributed to tribal dances and the common practice of going barefoot. Their love of combat is derived from a fierce warrior culture that goes back hundreds of years.

With an upbringing that stresses hard work, discipline, and devotion to authority, both heavenly and earthbound, Polynesians have come to be considered the ultimate clay from which to mold a football player. It is as if a childhood of gentle obedience translates into a passion for ferocious violent contact, the kind of collisions that resonate through a stadium and electrify the crowd.

If you are a football fan, the men of Samoa are familiar to you. Even if you’re not a fan, it’s an interesting...

13 movies you can watch for free on YouTube right now

Daily Dot:

When a movie’s license expires or the work ceases to be owned by a corporation or a private individual, it’s essentially a public good and is freely distributable. Thus, while you can always briefly find studio classics like All About Eve, The Palm Beach Story, or Rebecca on the site, posters are often breaking copyright laws to do so, and the films are likely to be removed as quickly as they went up.

Luckily though, you don’t have to commit a crime to watch good movies for free—and maybe get a bit of a film history lesson in the process. All you need to know is what to watch and where to watch it.

There are some great movies on this list and they run the gamut from screwball comedy to film noir to scifi to horror.

Reeder 3 now available for iOS with iPad Pro...

Popular RSS client Reeder has today released the third major iteration of its app on iOS. The availability of Reeder 3 for iOS follows the release of Reeder 3 for OS X back in September alongside the launch of El Capitan. Reeder 3 introduces a handful of new features and capabilities, including support for new services, interface tweaks, and more.

First off, the update adds support for using Instapaper as a sync service. Instapaper joins services like Feedbin, Feedly, and Feed Wrangler as services supported by Reeder. The update also introduces a Safari View Controller, meaning that you no longer have to exit the Reeder app itself to view links. Instead, they will open directly within the app, making for a much more seamless experience.

Reeder 3 also adds support for Split View multitasking for iOS 9 users, as well as support for iPad Pro. 3D Touch support is also now supported for iPhone 6s and...

Twitter announces native video support for its...

Twitter today announced that it is rolling out a highly-welcomed new feature to its Twitter Kit developer tools. The company announced in a blog post that users will now be able to watch full-screen Twitter videos and GIFs without having to open up a webview or leave their app.

Essentially this means that Twitter for iOS now will play back videos and GIFs full-screen with the native video player on iOS that we’ve all come to recognize and use over the years. Twitter notes that the feature is live on iOS now and will come to Android soon. This feature should make the entire video viewing process more seamless for the user as they will no longer have to remember to go back to whatever app they were using before clicking the video link that opened another app.

Twitter appears to be rolling out the update over-the-air, so there’s no work that needs to be done on the user/developer of things. Twitter says this feature is supposed on the latest version of Twitter Kit on...

The Godfather Trilogy – $10 on iTunes


The Godfather stands alongside classics like Citizen Kane in the ranks of the greatest American movies of all time. Director Francis Ford Coppola and author Mario Puzo adapted Puzo’s 1969 novel with an incredible degree of skill, patience, and emotional depth. It’s an old-fashioned gangster film that offers a probing look at the American dream. Marlon Brando invests the centerpiece role with the essence of his knowledge of what’s right. The movie contains so many great scenes and so much memorable dialogue–from its opening line, the heavily accented, “I believe in America,” to the final shot of a shutting door–that it’s impossible to name its finest moment. it was the high-grossing film of all time until Jaws, and it won three Oscars, including Best Picture.

You lucky US-based readers can grab the trilogy for only $10 on the iTunes Store. Don’t wait – no telling how long this deal will be available. If you’ve never seen these movies, I can’t recommend them...

Feature Request: How Apple can better optimize iOS...

Feature Request is a new regular 9to5Mac series where authors offer their opinion on how to improve popular hardware or software products.

Before Apple even announced the oft-rumored iPad Pro, it unveiled a new version of iPad software, iOS 9, that included several new features that seemed perfect for a device with a larger screen. Sure enough, those features foreshadowed the launch of the larger, 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Zac did an excellent job last week of highlighting some of these enhancement that are great on the larger-screened device.

As Zac noted, iOS 9 includes a handful of really nice optimizations for iPad Pro. These include things such as Picture in Picture support for video and FaceTime calls, Split View and Slide Over multitasking, an enhanced keyboard, and more. While these features truly shine and...

Google Drive for iOS updated w/ 3D Touch support,...

Google today has updated its Drive app on iOS with a handful of notable new features and enhancements. First off, today’s update to Drive, which bumps the app to version 4.4, adds 3D Touch support for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users. Now, pushing with more pressure on the Drive app icon will bring up two options, one to quickly upload photos and another to quickly search the contents of your Drive.

Next, the update adds the ability to receive push notifications whenever a new file is shared with you. Also, searching through Spotlight in iOS will now bring up files you have saved in Drive, allowing you to easily jump to it without first having to open to open the app.

Finally, version 4.4 of Google Drive for iOS adds support for Split View and Slide Over multitasking on iPad and iPad Pro. While these features...

Notable apps and app updates for November 24, 2015

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS, tvOS, and Mac OS X:

iOS Apps/Updates

mix1009 has announced Photo Cleaner 1.0. It’s a $2.99 app that deletes the video portion of Live Photos to reclaim space on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices. While the new Live Photos feature of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is fun to use, Live Photos can take up twice the storage space of regular photos. Photo Cleaner deletes the video portion of the new photo format, leaving only the still photo, reclaiming storage space.

Hollywood’s biggest turkeys of 2015


Once upon a time in a land called Hollywood, casting a big star was an investment that paid for itself in box office returns. That financial fairy tale is now pure fiction: The biggest box office flops of 2015 include vehicles fronted by Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Johnny Depp, among others.

Topping the turkey pile is Bill Murray’s Rock The Kasbah, an offbeat and off-color comedy in which a washed-up tour manager (Murray) finds himself in Kabul trying to turn a young Afghani woman into a TV singing competition winner. The fish out of water story was universally panned by critics and flailed like an asphyxiating goldfish, grossing just $2.9 million on an estimated $15 million production budget. With a dismal 19% return on production costs–and just an 8% favorable rating on Rotten Tomatoes–Rock The Kasbah leads our list of 2015′s biggest flops.

How many of these flops did you contribute to by not going to see them?

Facebook Tests Tools to Make Breakups More Bearable

Facebook last week announced it was testing tools that will let people manage their post-breakup life on its pages. "Today social media means that you are guaranteed to run into your ex, and he or she might very well be wrapped around a new partner," relationship expert Wendy Walsh said. "Research has shown that those who don't disconnect electronically have a harder time getting over a breakup," she told TechNewsWorld. The tools, available only on mobile devices, are being tested with some users in the United States.

This is particularly useful for watching TV later at night, or anytime you prefer to use lower volume levels so as not to disturb others — it enhances detail such as spoken dialogue, while softening music and other loud background noise.

Estimates show iPad Pro will sell more in first...

Apple bloggers aren't the only people fixated on the success or failure of the iPad Pro; investment analysts also keep a sharp eye on supplier reports to estimate how many of the device will be sold. Last week, KGI estimated that Apple would sell about 2.5 million iPad Pros this quarter, and this week, RBC Capital Markets predicts the number will be closer to 1.7 million devices by year-end

Ben Lovejoy at 9to5Mac figures that the 1 million per month sales rate of the iPad Pro means that about 3 million of the plus-sized iPads will be sold in the first three months of sales, exceeding "total sales of the Microsoft Surface tablet range." 

RBC also says that Apple will make about US$200 profit on each iPad Pro, which means that the Pro should generate total profits for the 1st...

Black Friday. It's enough to make you go crazy, pull out your wallet (or just use Apple Pay), and spend the nest egg. At least you can stretch the nest egg a little bit further thanks to these deals from a number of companies. Let's get started.

Well, you can! Gazelle is offering everyone 10% off on everything in the store between now and Monday, November 30. Just use that link in the first...

Review: Apple Pencil is the best iPad writing tool...

Aside from its larger 12.9-inch display and faster A9X processor, the iPad Pro stands out from all other iPads to date thanks primarily to a new accessory: the Apple Pencil. For now, the Apple Pencil can only be used with the iPad Pro, and offers quantifiable differences in both good and bad ways compared with third-party styluses that have previously been sold for iPads.

While Pencil is not required to use the iPad Pro, it’s especially interesting because it’s Apple’s first official solution for handwriting, drawing, and precision input on iPads beyond finger touches and gestures. By contrast, Apple’s Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro is the company’s second or third typing solution for iPads; the company offered an official solution for physical keyboard input on iPads way back when the original iPad launched in 2010 with the...

File this under Neat Hacks I’ll Never Do: Developer Hamza Sood tweeted a short video showing the Apple Pencil being used to “peek” and “pop” a note in the Notes app, a 3D Touch gesture that’s only officially supported on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

As explained by 9to5Mac, Sood jailbroke the iPad Pro to hook iOS to interpret pressure data from the sensors in the Apple Pencil as pressure data for the 3D Touch feature, that normally comes from your fingers pressing on the iPad screen.

Apple TV expands App Store categories beyond games...

Apple TV users should notice several new App Store categories when browsing for new content on tvOS. After initially launching without a dedicated categories section live in late October, Apple pushed the new section to new Apple TVs without a software update earlier this month. The latest expansion brings the total number of tvOS app categories to seven, up from five initially, which should further improve new app discovery.Apple first added two categories in early November: Games and Entertainment. The additional categories (via iDownloadBlog) gained since include Education, Health & Fitness, Lifestyle, News, and...

iFixit takes apart the Apple Smart Keyboard

Whenever Apple releases a new product, you can always count on the folks at iFixit to get one and tear it down. The latest teardown focuses on the new Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro.

iFixit found that the Smart Keyboard is water- and stain-resistant mostly because of the “high tech fabric.” It completely covers the keyboard, leaving no gaps or spaces. This means that in order to get underneath the fabric, cuts and tears need to be made, making a teardown irreversible.


Once the fabric is removed, you can see that Apple uses the key switches similar to those found in the...

Video: iOS 9 hacked to bring 3D Touch Peek and Pop...

Intrepid iOS developer/hacker Hamza Sood is back, this time with a cool hack to bring 3D Touch to the iPad Pro. By hooking relevant parts of the iOS system code via a jailbreak, detailed here on GitHub, iOS turns pressure data from Apple Pencil into pressure data for 3D Touch interactions. This is neat for two reasons: iPad Pro does not normally support 3D Touch (a feature currently exclusive to iPhone 6s) and its an unorthdox use for the Apple Pencil sensors, which is generally focused on drawing and sketching. You can see the video of the hack in action after the break …

This is all possible because the Apple Pencil reports...

iFixit sacrifices an Apple Smart Keyboard for science

Oh, iFixit. We love what you do, even if you do make Apple angry from time to time. But today’s teardown of the Apple Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro was really more like doing surgery knowing full well that the patient was going to die on the operating table.

Like watching an operation on progress, this teardown isn’t for the squeamish. Since the Smart Keyboard is water and stain-resistant, Apple put everything inside a microfiber lining of some sort, forcing the teardown experts at iFixit to pull out the tech knife almost immediately. That’s when you know “this is gonna hurt!”

The horror... The Horror...   Image via iFixit.

The top layer that covers the keyboard appears to be nylon. iFixit found that the dome switches used in the keyboard are identical to those in the 2015 Retina MacBook, but that the company added a stiffening...

T-Mobile gives existing customers 3 months of...

If you’re tired of all the sweet incentives wireless carriers offer to new subscribers, T-Mobile’s new deal may come as a relief. The carrier says it will offer three months of unlimited LTE data to all postpaid customers who’ve signed up by November 23.

The one big catch is that users must not disable Binge On, T-Mobile’s new unlimited streaming video offering. With Binge On, certain streaming apps such Netflix and Hulu limit video quality to 480p, but don’t count against users’ data allotments. Subscribers can disable Binge On at any time, but then they’ll lose the unlimited LTE giveaway for everything else.

SwiftKey, the popular third-party keyboard app for iOS, has today been updated with a few changes and tweaks that users of the app will certainly welcome. First off, the update adds a new dynamic theme for the keyboard. Called “Bubble Gum,” this new keyboard design offers light blue keys with pink keys. Every time you tap on it, pick, blue, and yellow bubbles float behind the keyboard.

Bubble Gum is the second “dynamic theme” SwiftKey has introduced on iOS, following “Shooting Stars” earlier this year. “Bubble Gum” is available under the “Design” tab in the app for $1.99.

Today’s SwiftKey update also refreshes the settings screen interface with a completely new design. The company says it’s now “easier than ever” to find information like usage stats and change your keyboard theme.

Teardown Shows Off the Guts of the iPad Pro's...

Following teardowns of the Apple Pencil and the iPad Pro itself, iFixit today completed a disassembly of Apple's new first party Smart Keyboard accessory. The teardown of the keyboard doesn't provide much in the way of surprising internal revelations, but does give those interested a closer look at the accessory's conductive fabric, dome switches underneath the keys, and underlying circuit board powering the device.

iFixit first noted the "high tech fabric" lining the outside of the Smart Keyboard, guessing that the fabric could be nylon due to its tactile similarities to a windbreaker. Once peeled back, the stripped away fabric reveals a row of dome switches beneath, along with a stiffening weight placed in the spacebar for a more...

iFixit posts teardown of Smart Keyboard, finds...

The extremely cool cats at iFixit tore into Apple’s new Smart Keyboard recently and found some interesting stuff inside.

The teardown, which was published today, reports that Apple used a conductive fabric as well as a key design borrowed from the 12-inch Retina MacBook.

The device uses multiple layers of fabric and plastic to keep it water and stain-resistant, repair firm iFixit noted. This includes microfiber, plastic, and what iFixit calls a nylon layer — in marketing, Apple refers to it simply as polyurethane.

The firm found that the keys themselves use the same switches found in the 12-inch MacBook as well as a stiffening...

Danish man reports severe burns from Apple Watch...

Update: Apple said it had examined Mr Mouritzen’s Apple Watch and found no evidence it had caused his reported injuries. Additionally, the company noted that the damage to the Apple Watch band is external and there are no active electronics in the band that could have caused the band to heat up.

Danish news site Ekstra Bladet reports that a man received severe burns from his Apple Watch, and has been waiting for several weeks for the results of an Apple investigation. Photos accompanying the report (below, not for weak stomaches) seem to show two long burn marks on the wrist of Jørgen Mouritzen, together with what appear to be burn marks on the strap.

Mouritzen and a witness to the event say that they are both certain the heat came from the Watch...

How I’m handling my depression (using an app)

Pete Smith:

I’m very lucky to have a fantastic family and a some seriously good friends despite the fact that I have neglected our relationships at times. They are, without exception, highly emotionally intelligent and can empathise with my current situation.

The key thing that I am doing differently right now is talking to those around me. I am trying to maintain a constant dialogue about my progress so that I cannot simply slip off the radar and assume the bad habits I desperately want to avoid. But like I say, I’m not great at asking for help so even though I know how approachable my circle is, that’s no guarantee that I’ll vocalise it when I begin to slip.

With all of this in mind, the following seemed a great solution to me.

Smith has created an app that will help him and his friends and family be aware of his depression and reach out to them in times of trouble. It’s an interesting idea and he is looking for input. If you or someone you know...

On Monday, Square began rolling out its new contactless reader to 100 local businesses in 20 U.S. cities, including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Boston. The new reader is able to accept Apple Pay and other NFC-based transactions, as well as process chip card payments. Business can order their reader now on Square’s website for $49.


First announced in June, Square’s contactless and chip reader connects wirelessly to the Square Stand mobile register or any iOS or Android device running the Square point-of-sale app. After the cashier finishes processing inputing the transaction, a green light flashes on the reader to indicate it’s ready to accept your contactless payment. You can use your Apple Pay-enabled iPhone or Apple Watch to pay by tapping your device...

Qube crowdfunding shows demand for low-cost Wi-Fi...

Philips Hue light bulbs are amazing — you can get them to produce just about any color, controlled from your iPhone. But besides being expensive, they also require a hub to be able to talk to your device. Qube is an Indiegogo project with 27 days to go that seeks to bring the price of Wi-Fi connected LED bulbs down to a reasonable amount — $19 per bulb — and make it all work without the need for a hub.

The campaign launched last Thursday and is now over 200% funded. In addition to the low cost and Wi-Fi, the Qube has Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth Smart built in so that just being near the bulbs with a Bluetooth device can turn on a light. That capability also makes it possible for Qube bulbs to shut off automatically when they don’t detect people in the house.

The team promises IFTTT compatibility, and also plans to have an...

TMO Background Mode: Interview with Parallels’ John...

John Uppendahl is the vice president of communications for Parallels, the company that's famous for its virtual machine software for the Mac-called Parallels Desktop. I chat with John about what this product does, its evolution, the different uses by customers, how it has enabled five million customers to have the Mac they want yet launch and use Windows apps completely transparently. Or even multiple different copies of OS X. John Uppendahl also talks about the ever growing solutions that a virtual machine system provides, including the brilliant Parallels Access iPad app that "applifies," with native touch gestures, an interface to a Mac running apps in another operating system. You'll enjoy the infections enthusiasm of this interview.

New Tech Targets Enterprise Ransomware

SentinelOne last week introduced an addition to its behavioral solution designed to address the problem of ransomware scrambling files on a computer. Ransomware has been a scourge not only for consumers, but for the enterprise, too. The malicious software can be particularly nettlesome for enterprises because they have to protect so many endpoints -- phones, tablets, laptops, desktops and servers. The company has a security scheme that uses a client app on each endpoint device that watches for malicious behavior and counters it.

Square's new card reader also accepts Apple Pay

Square is the choice of many small business owners who need to accept credit cards for payment. Now the company is beginning to replace its old "swipe" card reader with the new Square Contactless and Chip Reader, meaning that consumers will soon be able to pay with Apple Pay at local businesses.

The company is rolling out the new reader to 100 small businesses to begin with and is taking reservations for the new $49 box for the rest of its customers. Instead of a tiny mag-stripe reader that plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone or iPad — which will still be available for free, by the way — the Square Contactless and Chip Reader is a 2.6-inch square white plastic box with a slot on one side for chip (EMV) cards and a built-in NFC payment reader.

It’s battery powered or can be plugged into the Square Stand USB Hub for those who use Square’s point of sale system. The portable unit can be hand-carried to...

Fitbit adds automatic exercise tracking for Surge...

Fitbit Charge HR and Surge users no longer need to worry about whether they’ve remembered to log a workout beforehand.

With a new software update, both fitness wearables can record exercises automatically. The so-called SmartTrack feature can discern some specific activities such as biking, running, and the elliptical without any input. Other activities are filed into broader categories such as sports (covering basketball and tennis, for instance) and aerobics (for cardio-kickboxing, Zumba, and dance classes).

Users can set up SmartTrack through Fitbit’s companion app, defining the type of activities they want to track automatically, and how much active time it should take before Fitbit starts counting. By default, Fitbit triggers exercise mode after 15 minutes.

Review: Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is simple...

It’s been quite a while since Apple Watch came out (7 months!) and finally Apple has released an official dock accessory that might be worth a look. Maintaining typical Apple style, this watch dock is very simple…

There’s really not much to it at all. Inside of the box, you’ll find the dock itself and a 2-meter Lightning cable along with some simple documentation. The good news is that the magnetic charging puck for Apple Watch is completely integrated into the dock. You’ll use that Lightning cable and a power block, which does not come in the box, to hook everything together and charge your Apple Watch.

I’ve been using the app for a few days leading up to the launch and, for what it is, I quite enjoyed the experience, which essentially mirrors what you get from the new wordpress.com.

Mozilla wants to reduce the number of little-used features in Firefox in order to move faster when it comes to rolling out new stuff. To that end, Firefox will lose two features in the near future, but to hear Mozilla tell it, only a few people will actually miss them.

First up is tab groups, a feature first introduced in 2011 with Firefox 4 (back when those version numbers truly mattered). The idea behind Tab Groups was to take a bunch of webpages and group them together kind of like app folders on your smartphone.

Review: Phiaton BT 330 NC Headphones

If a headphone plays music on an airplane and nobody can hear it, does it make a sound? Though it’s not something we often think about, portable headphones have to do more than just put music in your ears — they also have to keep noise out. With the on-ear BT 330 NC ($199), Phiaton promises to actively remove 95 percent of ambient noise from the space between its drivers and your ears. While we think they have done a pretty good job in this respect, we wouldn’t recommend the BT 330NC as your only set of cans. BT 330 NC pairs 40mm drivers with active noise canceling, and the headphone uses Bluetooth 4.0.{/exp:char_limit}

How to use the Apple Watch in Nightstand mode

When your Apple Watch is charging and on its side, you can use it as a nightstand clock and an alarm clock. In Nightstand Mode, the smartwatch displays the date and time, along with the remaining charge. If you set an alarm, it also appears on the watch face. To turn on Nightstand mode:

  • Place your Apple Watch on its side.
  • Connect your Apple Watch to its charger.
  • After it begins charging, your Apple Watch will automatically go into Nightstand mode.

When your Apple Watch is in Nightstand mode and you aren't using it, the display turns off. To see the display again, tap it, press the Digital Crown or the side button, or lightly nudge your Apple Watch.

The alarm on your Apple Watch is different than the alarms on your iPhone. You need to set or adjust an alarm for Nightstand mode from your Apple Watch:

Developers can still schedule apps for release during these dates, but they will need to be submitted and approved beforehand. Other iTunes Connect functionality, such as access to analytics data, will remain available.

In the post on its developer website, Apple notes the record downloads, revenue and active customers for the App Store.

Because of your incredible apps, the App Store crossed 100 billion cumulative downloads. Revenue from the App Store increased 25% year over year, and the number of transacting customers grew 18%, setting a new all-time record. We want to thank...

TopXNotes is THE Mac OS X tool for 'power user...

Is there such a thing as a "power user" note-taker? Sure there is, and he/she is the user for whom Tropical Software developed TopXNotes, an US$39.99 note pad utility for the Mac.

Sure, Mac OS X comes with a Notes app. But it's a weenie tool compared to TopXNotes. Think of TopXNotes as a collection place where you can put info stuff you need to remember, but can’t. 

With the Tropical Software solution, notes can be as long as you need them to be, and you can customize the style, size, color and highlight color. My favorite feature is QuickNotes, where you can tag any note as a "QuickNote" and have it accessible without having to bring TopXNotes itself to the front of your work screen.

The customization options for your notes, categories and groups are extensive, and you can set your own groups and categories. If you’re unsure how to enter some information, there are templates for common, basic types of info...

The Logic Pros: Making MIDI FX in Logic’s complex...

In this week’s episode of The Logic Pros, we will be taking a user-friendly look at Logic’s mysterious and powerful MIDI Environment. Along with what seems like a countless number of possibilities, tools, MIDI FX mods and more, the Environment has an interesting little item known as Touch Tracks that can do some pretty amazing things once it’s set up properly:

The Environment is certainly more for advanced users, and it isn’t recommended to go poking around down here without expecting some wacky things to happen to your input path and with the way Logic starts to behave in general. Having said that, there is a whole plethora of things that can be done: creating alternate MIDI routing paths and other interesting custom...
