Mac: Apple Mac mini (Late 2014)

While the big hit today in the Mac world was Apple’s introduction of the iMac with a Retina 5K Display, the venerable Mac mini ($499—$999) had a place in the spotlight as well. Apple’s diminutive little powerhouse gets a nice technology refresh and drops the starting price by $100 for an even better value for those wanting to dip their toes into the world of Macs. The update brings 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Thunderbolt 2, fourth-generation…

A visual tour of OS X Yosemite’s changes

CN.dart.call("xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:["top"], collapse: true});John Siracusa's gigantic review of OS X Yosemite tells you everything you need to know about the new operating system. The biggest, most noticeable change is the revised user interface, which has been redesigned in the image of iOS 7 even though it remains distinctly Mac-like.

When the first Yosemite Public Beta was released, we ran through a bunch of apps and compared them side-by-side with their Mavericks iterations to show just what had changed, and by how much. Apple continued to tweak the look of the interface throughout the beta period, addressing a few of our initial gripes.

Below is a comprehensive visual tour of Yosemite's new changes. Many of these screenshots are similar to what shipped with the Public Beta...

OS X 10.10 Yosemite: The Ars Technica Review

Aurich Lawson / Thinkstock

When the book is finally closed on the product line known as OS X, last year’s release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks may end up getting short shrift. Sure, it brought tangible energy saving benefits to Mac laptop owners, but such gains are quickly taken for granted; internal changes and new frameworks are not as memorable to customers as they may be to developers and technophiles. And while...

Apple to release iOS 8.1 on Monday, October 20th

You’ll have to wait until Monday for iOS 8.1.

Per the mighty iMore, Apple announced that it will release iOS 8.1, with full support for Apple Pay and features such as the return of the Camera Roll and the iCloud Photo Library.

After iOS 8 launched in September, many users were confused about the disappearance of the traditional Camera Roll and Photo Stream interfaces. Although photos weren’t gone, and simply moved to the collections tab, it seems as if Apple is willing to bring them back. Part of this could be due to the fact of making it easier to differentiate what photos and videos are actually using physical storage and what are using iCloud Photo Library storage, which will also come out of beta as of iOS 8.1. That means that whatever iCloud...

At today's media event, Apple introduced the all new iPad Air 2. The second-generation tablet features an ultra thin profile that's just 6.1mm thick, much thinner than the 7.5mm original iPad Air.

OS X Yosemite: New Notification Center finally gives...

Notification Center has been a part of OS X for two years: It was introduced in Mountain Lion and expanded upon in Mavericks. But with OS X Yosemite, Notification Center has transformed into something exponentially more useful than it was before. In fact, in Yosemite Notification Center is so different—and so much more useful than it was—that it probably deserves a new name. 

A supply of widgets

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start with the most fundamental of changes: With Yosemite, Notification Center no longer slides a Mac’s entire interface off to the left in order to pop out from the right side of the screen. Now, Dock-like, it slides in on top of the right side of your screen while you’re using it. The old approach was certainly dramatic, but I...

Apple updates desktop iMac line with “5k” Retina...

One of the big "tentpole" announcements from Apple’s event this morning was the long-awaited arrival of iMacs with "retina" displays. The flagship 27-inch iMac form factor has been updated with a high-resolution, high-DPI screen, and it's now known as the "iMac with Retina Display." It runs at a resolution of 5120x2880.

The updated iMac with Retina Display keeps the same external form factor as the existing iMacs, so externally, things are unchanged. However, the new internals include an updated LED backlight, an updated oxide TFT display panel, and an updated timing controller to push around the display's 14.7 million pixels.

Apple also says that although the display is brighter and denser than the 27-inch 2560x1440 panel on older 27-inch iMacs, the panel uses 30% less power thanks to the efficient LED design.

Like its littermate Dashboard, OS X’s Spotlight feature has been with us since OS X Tiger, way back in 2005. That entire time, it’s been a systemwide search feature parked at the top of the screen. But Spotlight in OS X Yosemite is different. Really different, with a new look, a new location, and a new set of data sources. This is not the Spotlight we’ve come to know.

Andrew Cunningham

CUPERTINO, CA—Apple has officially announced its new iPad Air 2 at today's media event on its campus at 1 Infinite Loop. The iPad Air 2 was inadvertently outed yesterday in an iBooks listing for the iPad user guide.

The new device is only 6.1 mm thin, and Phil Shiller told the audience, "In every iPad, there's been an air gap between glass and display. Now they've been bonded together. There's no air gap. Makes it thinner, and the images sharper."

The screen also has an anti-reflective coating," Shiller added, which "reduces reflections by 56 percent."

Apple releasing OS X Yosemite to the public today...

Yosemite is here.

Apple

CUPERTINO, CA—Today at a product event, Apple announced that it would be releasing OS X Yosemite to the public. The eleventh major release of OS X was announced back in June at WWDC, and Apple began sending public beta builds to interested parties in July. Though it includes other new features, the operating system's most noticeable change is its redesigned user interface, which echoes the overhaul Apple gave iOS 7 last year.

Yosemite's brighter, flatter applications and icons, its heavy use of translucency, and its switch to Helvetica Neue will be familiar to anyone with an iPhone...

Apple Pay is the most important thing to launch with iOS 8.1.

Apple

Apple has just released iOS 8.1, the first major update to iOS 8. The majority of the update's new features have already been announced, but for one reason or another weren't ready to be included in iOS 8 when it shipped last month.

In the update, Apple plans to add back the "Camera Roll" album in iOS 8 with 8.1, to help users find their recently taken shots. The new version will also include a beta of iCloud Photo Library. iCloud Photo Library offers users the options of either backing up their photos to iCloud, or using it as primary storage to clear up space on their devices, only downloading photos when necessary.

8.1 will also mark the formal release Apple Pay, the contactless payment system Apple teased when it unveiled the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September. The new...

According to Apple, more than 500 additional banks have signed on to support Apple Pay, as have dozens of additional retailers.

In store payments with Apple Pay will require the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, as they both include NFC chips, and the Apple Watch will also be able to be used to make in-store payments when it launches.

The iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 5s, and the newly released iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 can make online purchases with Apple Pay in apps that support it."Our team has worked incredibly hard to make Apple Pay private and secure, with the...

Throwback Thursday: If only I had OneNote when I was...

Today’s post was written by Jenny Hansen, a OneNote user and participant in the Microsoft Office Insider program. 

Students have returned to school in my Southern California neighborhood, which means my local Starbucks is filling up with the gadgetry of today’s college crowd. Laptops, tablets, smartphones, Livescribe smartpens…frankly, I’m jealous. The technology today is remarkable.

We didn’t have all this wizardry when I was in college. Studying would have been so much easier if I’d had the technology I take for granted today during my college years.

OneNote is my favorite tech tool. It allows me to keep all my notes, research and to-do lists in one place, neatly organized and easily accessible from wherever I am. I use OneNote to take meeting notes and action items, manage home improvement projects, track grocery lists and keep track of research for my writing projects. Whether I’m on my PC, Surface Pro or Android phone, everything...

Organize your Office 365 with the new app launcher

Nick Robinson is a senior product marketing manager on the Office 365 team.

American founding father Benjamin Franklin famously said, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” In order to yield your greatest results, organization and access to each tool you need to accomplish your goals is paramount.

iAd now tracking iOS 8 users' in-app browsing...

Something quietly introduced alongside iOS 8 has been the ability for advertisers to retarget iAds based on in-app browsing actions, a new report says. Apple is in fact said to be pitching this to advertisers as a way of circumventing the absence of mobile cookie tracking in iOS. In a given example, someone who adds a pair of shoes to a cart in a retailer's iPhone shopping app -- but decides not to buy them -- may later see an ad for that same pair of shoes from the same retailer, even in another app on his or her iPad. Tapping that ad might redirect the person to their abandoned checkout page...

This sound like the premise of a bar trick, but not so.

Why? Because data stored on flash drives has weight. The difference is almost infinitesimally minute, but it is there.
The extra weight comes from flash storage storing more data in memory. The transistors in flash memory distinguish between a 1 and a 0 by trapping electrons.

It explains that the app is currently set to track glucose levels using mg/dL, a value adopted in the US and some other countries.

Apple increased the middle and upper iPhone storage tiers when it launched the iPhone 6, moving from 16/32/64GB to 16/64/128GB. The current iPad Air has four tiers: 16/32/64/128GB.

Here’s why public WiFi is a public health hazard

Maurits Martijn, writing for Medium:

In his backpack, Wouter Slotboom, 34, carries around a small black device, slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes, with an antenna on it…Wouter removes his laptop from his backpack, puts the black device on the table, and hides it under a menu. A waitress passes by and we ask for two coffees and the password for the WiFi network. Meanwhile, Wouter switches on his laptop and device, launches some programs, and soon the screen starts to fill with green text lines. It gradually becomes clear that Wouter’s device is connecting to the laptops, smartphones, and tablets of cafe visitors.

On his screen, phrases like “iPhone Joris” and “Simone’s MacBook” start to appear. The device’s antenna is intercepting the signals that are being sent from the laptops, smartphones, and tablets around us.

Part of this is an education problem, teaching people how to be careful. But it’s foolish to think that any public WiFi connection is safe....

Apple TV has never followed a predictable update path. Officially unveiled alongside the iPhone in January 2007, it has had just two revisions to speak of during its lifespan, and aside from a quiet silicon swap last year, there hasn’t been any movement on the Apple TV front since March of 2012.

But the industry around it hasn’t been nearly as stagnant. In the two and a half years since the third generation of Apple TV landed, we’ve seen a veritable explosion of streaming devices and services, with various sticks and boxes all promising to deliver high-definition content to our televisions. Apple TV has kept pace by adding channels and occasionally refreshing its software, but there’s one main problem: All of these boxes, up to and including Google’s new Nexus Player, pretty much do the same thing. Sure, some have a slightly better selection of channels and others play...

On October 16, 2014, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals an invention relating to future iDevices and CarPlay that will be able to use seamless outdoor to indoor map transitioning. The mapping system could start with in-car navigation to a parking lot and then transition to an indoor parking map and eventually further transition to the inside your destination, be it the inside of a mall, a school, a convention center and beyond. In 2013 Apple acquired WifiSLAM and this invention likely borrows some of their technology.

Many sites, pundits and people think they have a sure grip on what's going to be announced later today at Apple's press event, which begins at 10AM Pacific time (1PM Eastern time) and is being held in Apple's own community town hall theatre at the company's headquarters. This generally means a smaller affair and a strictly press-only audience, and on tap for the event is the expected announcement of new iPad models. But what else is likely to happen?

Apple to disable another Health feature as UK and...

Apple has decided to disable one of the features of the Health application, specifically the blood glucose tracking capability, until it can issue a fix for issues reported by users in the UK and Australia, CNET reported tonight. The feature will apparently be removed through an incoming software update (perhaps iOS 8.1, or possibly 8.0.3) while the company prepares a patch to remedy the problem.

While it’s true that the HealthKit framework supports measurement standards for both the United States and abroad, a bug that exists in the current version prevents users from manually entering or viewing blood glucose levels using anything other than United States measurements (mg/dL, or milligrams per deciliter) within the actual Health application. The UK and Australian...

It's pretty clear that Apple's HealthKit is going to reset the bar for success in this space, and Fitbit will lose its hard-won share if it doesn't jump on Apple's late-to-the-party bandwagon.

A San Jose police officer used Apple’s Find My iPhone service to track down and rescue Melissa Vasquez, a woman who had been trapped in a 500-foot South Bay ravine for 17 hours. According to a report by KGO-TV, officer David Cameron is to thank for locating the stranded driver. After Vasquez was involved in a car accident, OnStar reported her location to the police, but they were unable to find any evidence of the car or driver.

When Cameron, who says he’s known around his department for being a bit of a “tech geek,” searched her house, he found her iPad and realized that he could use Find My iPhone to locate Vasquez’s cell phone. Vasquez’s tablet was locked using a passcode, but it took Cameron only three guesses to...

Report: Apple will stop carrying Fitbits in its...

A new report suggests that Apple may stop selling Fitbit devices online and in their retail stores sometime soon. According to Re/code, who originally reported this story, the Fitbit dismissal will happen to make room for its own soon-to-launch wearable, the Apple Watch. Fitbit’s lineup of wearables track steps, workouts, and other health metrics, which the Apple Watch will also do.

Apple has yet to comment on this report, so it’s unclear why Apple is targeting Fitbit specifically—currently, the Apple Store carries other third-party wearable devices from Nike, Jawbone, Withings, and other brands. However, it appears that Apple and Fitbit may have had a rocky relationship as of late. Last week, Fitbit announced that the company had no current plans to integrate its fitness...

Apple’s Silicone Case for iPhone 6/6 Plus: Good...

Any case produced by Apple itself has to survive a fair amount of scrutiny. After all Apple makes the device the case is protecting. It has to work well in every way, from the out of box experience, to putting it on the device, to protecting the device it covers. Not surprisingly, Apple's iPhone 6 Silicone Case does stand up to scrutiny, assuming you're looking for a case that doesn't claim to take extreme punishment.

Report: Christian Bale in talks to play Steve Jobs...

Variety reports that sources have confirmed actor Christian Bale is in talks to play the role of Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography of the late Apple co-founder. Variety adds that insiders believe Bale will begin filming for the biopic this spring.

Bale, who can next be seen in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” is still negotiating for the Travis McGee pic “The Deep Blue Goodbye” at Fox. Sources tell Variety talks have taken longer then expected because Bale was not interested in doing a sequel while Fox wanted one.

Insiders say Bale would likely shoot “Jobs” in the spring and follow it up with ‘The Deep Blue Goodbye.”

The film,...

Mac Apps With OS X Yosemite-Specific Features Begin...

Ahead of tomorrow's media event that will likely see Apple previewing OS X Yosemite one last time ahead of the software's public release, apps that contain support for Yosemite-only features have begun hitting the Mac App Store.

PCalc, a popular calculator app for Mac, for example, has been updated with full support for OS X Yosemite, offering a Notification Center Widget and Handoff capabilities.

The arrival of Mac apps with Yosemite support suggests that the new operating system will be debuting shortly after the upcoming media event, possibly arriving as soon as tomorrow. Apple has seeded three separate Yosemite GM candidates, suggesting the software is nearing completion.

OS X Yosemite introduces a system-wide redesign that brings a flatter, more modern look to OS X, with a heavy emphasis on translucency. The update...

HBO Go Will Go It Alone

HBO Go might just go it alone, according to CEO Richard Plepler, who made the remarks at Time Warner's investor day event on Wednesday. "In 2015, we will launch a standalone, over-the-top HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them," Pleper said.

There are rumblings that Netflix will be reporting some nice earnings, which is probably excellent motivation for HBO to go after the cordcutting crowd. This is very exciting news for me personally, because I've been calling HBO customer service about once a month for like a year now and BEGGING them to let me pay directly instead of having to give more money to the Cable Service Which Must Not Be Named. It doesn't take long, but it looks like I'm going to get my way on this.

Hopefully my crusade for the last two seasons of The Muppet...

Apple accidentally leaks next-gen iPad Air 2, iPad...

The next-gen iPad information you wanted came a bit ahead of schedule.

According to The Verge and 9to5Mac, Apple accidentally revealed both of its new iPads: the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 on its web site. An official user guide for iOS 8 in the iTunes Store has apparently had its screenshots updated ahead of schedule; both new iPads are pictured, and the images reveal each will have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Aside from the addition of Touch ID, it seems these latest iPads will look nearly identical to their predecessors. 9to5Mac first spotted the premature iPad screenshots. The full-resolution image is still sitting on Apple’s servers.

Actor Christian Bale is in talks to play the leading role in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic being produced by Sony, reports Variety. Leonardo DiCaprio was originally in talks to play Jobs, but withdrew from negotiations earlier this month.

Penned by Aaron Sorkin, the Steve Jobs biopic was originally set to be directed by "The Social Network" director David Fincher, who was said to be in talks with Sony earlier this year, but the director title went to Danny Boyle instead, who also directed the hit movie "Slumdog Millionaire."

When David Fincher was still attached to the project, he reportedly...
