Reducing complexity and boosting creativity with...

Architects have the unique challenge of balancing creativity and business needs to create something beautiful—and profitable. While the profession is known for vision and creativity, bringing a building to life also requires extensive planning and coordination. The assembly, tracking and accounting of nuts, bolts, beams and every other material needed—can make or break a project.

Tools that ease project planning and let architects and staff focus on the creative work are essential. Ian Butcher, owner of the small architectural firm Best Practice Architecture and Design, knows this well.

For Ian, becoming an architect was a near-lifelong dream. Naturally, it was the artistic side and not the business side of the profession that captivated him. “I grew up in the suburbs. All I knew were suburban houses and strip malls. But in 8th grade we went on a field trip to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Our group was so large that we entered through the freight elevator. When...

Scott Photography evolves with Office 365

In an era of filtered perfection and disappearing selfies, Louis Scott has made a living by photographing the authentic, “raw” versions of his subjects. The mission of Scott Photography (located in San Antonio, TX) is to help individuals and businesses grow through the art of portraiture.

Since founding his business in 2012, Scott has depended on Microsoft Office for operating his business. Whether it’s a corporate client in need of headshots for the employees who make their product possible––or an aspiring actor, hoping to be the next big thing––Office helps Scott to always be ready.

Scott has also taken more time for personal projects as his business grows. He created the Human Uniqueness Project, which includes The Firefighter Initiative—portraitures of firefighters in day-to-day life, rather than in the acts of heroism that characterize their work. The Firefighter...

From 9to5Toys:

You may have noticed that Apple introduced, upgraded and announced a slew of new products this morning. Amidst the craze of today’s moves was the unveiling of new Apple Watch Bands, including the much sought-after Nike Sport. You may recall that up until today, this popular band was only available with the Series 2 Nike+ model.

The bad news for consumers? Apple continues to charge rather outlandish prices for its official watch bands with prices topping out at $689 for the...

As we illustrated with the recent UK increase in app prices, the net price is actually almost identical in both countries. The same is true of most of Apple’s hardware.

Apple's latest iOS app is designed to help iPhone and iPad users get social with videos—though it isn't a social network itself. The company's new Clips app lets you add filters, emoji, and animated text to short videos. Think of it like a mashup of Snapchat and iMovie.

The videos can be one clip or multiple clips. Apple says the new app will make it quick and easy to create multi-clip videos “without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools.” Like other apps, you touch and hold a button to shoot live video or add photos, then you can add filters, speech bubbles, emoji and other items afterward. There are also stock music options, animated backgrounds, and text.

In addition to the Nike Sport band, which comes in three colors, Apple also introduced three new colors for its regular $49 Sport bands, a new $49 wide-stripe nylon band in six colors, and three colors for the $149 leather classic buckle option, complete with new buckle design.

Apple iPad is a Faster, Cheaper iPad Air 2

Say good-bye to the iPad Air, it's just the iPad now. From a report on CNET: Apple announced on Tuesday morning that it will be dropping the price of the 9.7-inch iPad by $70. The tablet's A8X processor will be getting an upgrade too, jumping over to the A9 chip used in the iPad Pro. The upgrade will replace the iPad Air 2, but the iPad Mini 4 will live on, starting at $399. The updated pricing will start on Friday, at $329 for the 32GB model and $459 for the 32GB WiFi with cellular service model. It's Apple's cheapest iPad, after the company decided to replace the iPad Mini 2, which started at $269. Although Apple's iPad is leading the tablet market, it's still a tumbling one as demand takes a decline thanks to people holding onto their tablets longer.

While we’re still waiting for a fresh iPad with barely-there bezels to make an appearance, Apple has returned to its roots with a new 9.7-inch model simply called iPad. And if you had previously balked at buying an iPad Air 2 because the price was too high, you might want to take notice.

Apple hasn’t technically added a new model to the iPad lineup, but it has bolstered the low end. Gone is the aging iPad Air 2 (as well as the whole Air branding), and in its place is a new model that looks exactly the same, with a 9.7-inch retina screen, Touch ID, 32GB or 128GB of storage, and the same color choices (silver...

Maybe I had my hopes too high, but today’s Apple announcements disappointed. A new 9.7-inch iPad. A (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. A new Clips app for iOS devices. All well and good — but underwhelming.

Where are the new iPad Pros? Where are the new iMacs? Why is Clips iOS only and not available for macOS? On the bright side, my credit card can remain in my wallet.

Guess we’ll just have to hope that my AWT compadre, Steve, is right and that Apple plans an April 4 special event at its new Apple Park headquarters. However, April 4 is less than two weeks away, so chances are increasing that, if such an event is coming, it will be held later in the month.

Last year Apple did away with the 16GB and 64GB versions of the device and adjusted the pricing. Now the 128GB model is the only version available, but it now costs what the 16GB version did when the device first launched a year and a half ago. In addition…

Apple just made upgrading to an iPhone 7 a philanthropic decision by adding a red special edition to the lineup. The new red aluminum finish, which is available to order for both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in-store and online on March 24, is a fundraising effort for the Global Fund. Apple will contribute a portion of red iPhone sales to the fight against AIDS and HIV.

The two new red iPhones will come in 128GB and 256GB storage variations and start at $749 in the U.S. Apple will sell the special editions in more than 40 countries by the end of March, with Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, and Turkey to come in April. If you live in the U.S., U.K., or China and are part of the iPhone Upgrade Program, you’ll be able to snag an unlocked red iPhone with AppleCare+. In the U.S., the 128GB iPhone 7 will start at $37 a month with the ability to upgrade every year.

The iPad Air 2 was very slender; 6.1mm and 0.96 pounds. The new iPad is relatively bulky, measuring at 7.5mm thin and weighing 1.03 pounds …

The company's new mainstream 9.7-inch tablet, called simply "iPad," includes an Apple A9 SoC (not an A9X), but its most exciting feature is its starting price of $329, $70 less than the previous starting price of the Air 2. The tablet will be available to order starting March 24 and will begin shipping next week.

At that price, it actually appears that you take a step back from the design used for the Air 2 and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. At 1.03 pounds (469g) and 0.29-inches (7.5mm) thick, the tablet is actually almost identical in size to...

Apple today announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition in a vibrant red aluminum finish, in recognition of more than 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED). This gives customers an unprecedented way to contribute to the Global Fund and bring the world a step closer to an AIDS-free generation. The special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone will be available to order online worldwide and in stores beginning Friday, March 24.

I have to say, those are some gorgeous looking iPhones.

Apple today announced a brand new app called Clips that allows users to combine video clips, photos, and music with animated captions and effects into creative videos that can be shared through the usual social networks.

While the functionality is very similar to video and photo editing features in apps like Instagram and Snapchat, it doesn’t appear Apple is competing directly with those apps as Clips will allow users to share directly to Facebook, Instagram, and elsewhere.

If you make your way over to the Apple Store site this morning, you’ll see something like this:

According to Apple’s System Status page, the site went down for maintenance at 3a PT (early Tuesday morning). There are no media events scheduled for today, so this could be a site update.

But conjecture abounds, with most of the focus being on speed bump updates of the existing iPad line. Though there are some who suggest an updated iPhone SE, a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro, and a few other goodies.

Keep your eyes peeled, folks. My bet? This ain’t just...

Patent report: shape-changing iOS screens, wireless...

Future iPhones and iPads may have screens that can dynamically change their shape. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,600,070) for an “user interface having changeable topography.”

According to the patent, an iOS device would have a flexible display with a portion that would raise or lower depending on user interaction. Portions, or nodes, on the display could raise to offer the tactile feel of buttons, keys, even a scroll wheel.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “The user interface can have a shape changeable surface that can selectively alter according to an input so as to provide changeable topography of the user interface. The surface can include individual nodes that can raise above or lower below the initial surface. 

“Alternatively, the surface can include a shape changeable material that can change the shape of portions thereof into discrete shapes above or below the initial surface. Alternatively, the surface can include...

Apple Announces iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition

Apple today announced a new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition on its online store, following a scheduled "maintenance" break this morning.

The new color option has white front bezels, with the back described as having a vibrant red aluminum finish. Cupertino says the model is in recognition of more than 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED), which it says gives customers a way to contribute to the Global Fund and "bring the world a step closer to an AIDS-free generation".“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today's lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch,"...

The Apple Store is back up and Apple has just announced a new cheaper iPad, going on sale Friday for $329. The product replaces the iPad Air 2 in the lineup and is simply called ‘iPad’, available in three colors with 32 GB storage.

The $329 iPad features older internal components to enable the lower price point, featuring an Apple A9 chip although the 9.7-inch Retina display is brighter. It does not support Apple Pencil or include a Smart Connector like the ‘iPad Pro’ line. Apple has also increased the storage capacity on iPad mini …

Apple Debuts New 9.7-Inch iPad With A9 Chip to...

Apple today announced it is launching a new 9.7-inch iPad equipped with an A9 chip and a brighter Retina display to replace the iPad Air 2, which has been discontinued. The tablet, which Apple is simply calling "iPad," is Apple's new entry-level model at the 9.7-inch size, starting at $329 for 32GB and $429 for 128GB.

The new 9.7-inch iPad is similar in many ways to the iPad Air 2, which had an A8X chip and started at $399, but slightly thicker and heavier with a faster A9 chip and a brighter Retina display. Another difference is that the new 9.7-inch iPad does not have a fully laminated display or anti-reflective coating per its tech specs.

Beyond the A9 chip, those specs...

Japanese website Mac Otakara had claimed that Apple would release a 7.9-inch iPad Pro, but other analysts had disagreed, and it turns out the rumor was indeed incorrect, at least for now. Apple has also introduced a new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad and discontinued the iPad mini 2 as part of its tablet lineup refresh...

Technologist Lou Miranda points out new golden age...

It’s an article that ran roughly nine months ago, prior to the release of iOS 10, but it makes some good points.

In the article, technologist and author Lou Miranda points out that the iPad Pro was handicapped by the software available at the time, namely iOS 9. Upon its initial introduction, the original iPhone had great software, but was handicapped by slow hardware.

Miranda then offers the following very relevant points:

Apps can only be as powerful as the operating system they’re running on, and iOS 9 is limited by its support for very old devices with very slow CPUs.

The key here is that iOS can only get as powerful as the slowest hardware that it supports.

Miranda points out that, as of now, we’re entering a golden age for mobile computers, thereby allowing the iOS to start peaking what it can do. The same argument can also be made for the Apple Watch and watchOS, which means there will be next to no limitations as to what the device can...

The fatal flaw in Apple’s Magic keyboard and mouse

Apple’s Magic keyboard and mouse don’t support multiple Macs.

Like many of you, I have a home office setup with a monitor, speakers keyboard and mouse. When I need to get some work done, I plug my MacBook into power, monitor, speakers and I’m off the races. I prefer wireless peripherals because it’s two less cables to plug in.

The problem is that Apple’s latest keyboard (MLA22LL/A) and mouse (MLA02LL/A) took a huge step backwards in functionality because they don’t support multiple Macs. That’s right, you can’t switch between Macs without have to re-pair Apple’s “Magic” peripherals – every time. This defeats the purpose of having wireless peripherals!

I’ve used every incarnation of the Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and...

Apple may have something to learn from secretive...

Duan Yongping may have figured out how to beat Apple at its own game in the Chinese marketplace.

The reclusive billionaire founded both Opposition and Vivo, the twin smartphone brands that dealt the world’s largest company a stinging defeat in China last year. Once derided as cheap iPhone knockoffs, they leapfrogged the rankings and shoved Apple Inc. out of the top three in 2016 — when iPhone shipments fell in China for the first time.

Jongping stated that he was able to beat Apple in the region given that Apple didn’t adapt to local competition. Oppo and Vivo employed tactics Apple was reluctant to match, such as cheaper devices with high-end features, for fear of jeopardizing its winning formula elsewhere, Duan said.

“Apple couldn’t beat us in China because even they have flaws,” the 56-year-old electronics mogul said. “They’re maybe too stubborn sometimes. They made a lot of great things, like their operating system, but we surpass them in other areas.”...

Drobo has been on a roll over the past two years, adding 7 new products to its line of storage appliances in that time. Today, Drobo released the Drobo 5N2 NAS, billed as the fastest 5-bay Drobo NAS yet. At $499 for an "empty" device that can be filled with a mixture of 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs, the Drobo 5N2 offers a bump up in performance for connected home users, media professionals, and small businesses.

Image showing paired 1Gbps Ethernet ports, internal battery-backed cache

The device comes with two 1Gbps Ethernet ports that can be bonded for twice the throughput, also acting as redundant ports in the case of a router failure. The processor in the device has been upgraded to provide increased speed and throughput as well. The 5N2 can handle a 64TB volume size, and the device can be set up to create a smaller backup volume for use with Time Machine or other backup solutions.

Apple has come under fire in New Zealand after it was revealed that it had paid no tax whatsoever in the country for the past decade, despite selling more than NZ$4.2B ($2.96B) worth of products in the country. The NZ Herald said that the company’s tax arrangements had been criticized by parties across the political spectrum.

Green Party co-leader James Shaw said Apple was not paying its fair share. “It is absolutely extraordinary that they are able to get away with paying zero tax in this country. I really like Apple products – they’re incredibly innovative – but it looks like their tax department is even more innovative than their product designers,” Shaw said …

If you’re a fan of science fiction (good, bad, and somewhere in between), you should download the COMET TV app for the fourth generation Apple TV. Some of the content is good, while some is incredibly cheesy, in a it’s-so-bad-I-can’t-stop- watching way—but, hey, it’s free.

COMET TV is an American digital broadcast television network owned by the Sinclair Television Group subsidiary of the Sinclair Broadcast Group and operated by the MGM Television division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The network focuses on science fiction with some supernatural, horror, adventure and fantasy series and films, sourced mainly from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film and TV library.

In addition to the app, COMET TV will continue its broadcast offerings to customers in over 100 markets as well as online.

A transparent Mac within the decade? Maybe

I'm not sure we'll ever see this on a Mac, but Microsoft and Jinha Lee, a MIT graduate working at Samsung on TV interfaces, developed a prototype of a "transparent" computer that lets you reach "inside" and "touch" digital content. 

Lee told the BBC that allowing folks to interact with machines in the same way they do with solid objects could make computing much more intuitive. In fact, he thinks transparent computers will come into general use within a decade.

The SpaceTop 3D system consists of a transparent LED display with built-in cameras that track the user's gestures and eye movements. It consists of a clear-glass display that allows input using voice control, touchless motions and eye-tracking.

You place your hands behind the screen to scroll or type just as you would with a regular computer. However, you can also raise your hands up to grab and manipulate the virtual 3D elements.

Nintendo’s new Switch offers the best of both worlds when it comes to gaming hardware. It’s a home device that you can easily drop into a dock and play HD games on your television, but it’s also a portable system that can be played anywhere you are, or even propped up with a kickstand for on-the-go multiplayer showdowns.

However, if you’re a parent, that sort of approach adds another layer of difficulty if you’re concerned about screen time limits, or want to keep your kids away from mature content or online communication. If you can’t rely on the hardware being played, let alone stored in a single place, how will you keep an eye on how it’s being used?

Apple's Online Store Down for Scheduled '...

Apple's online store has been taken offline for a scheduled "maintenance" break between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time. The extended downtime is fueling hopes that fresh hardware will be available when the store is brought back online, as has been the case many times in the past.

Apple traditionally invites the media to Special Events to unveil new products, but it does not have one planned for today. Accordingly, any additions or changes to Apple's online store today are likely to be minor, and a press release would be an appropriate medium for sharing the announcements.

Lending credence to this theory is that 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time happens to be exactly when Apple typically distributes press releases.

DoorDash will start delivering food via robots In...

DoorDash is putting a small fleet of six-wheeled delivery robots into action for the first time in Redwood City, California following weeks of tests. The robots, built by a company called Starship Technologies, are about the size of a golden retriever and roll around sidewalks with relative ease. They’ll be used to lug food from restaurants to customers on short-distance orders, spanning anywhere from one to two miles.

This is starting on Thursday. I think it’s cool as hell—I’m going to give it a try for sure.

Apple Music has reportedly broken the 24-hour record for album streams with Drake's More Life. The newly-released (March 18) album reportedly registered 89.9 million single-day streams on Apple’s music streaming service compared to 61.3 million on Spotify for the first day of availability on both services.

Though having premiered on Beats 1 radio, the release was distributed non-exclusively across all major streaming services. Which makes the streaming figures interesting, as Apple Music has about 20 million subscribers as compared to Spotify’s 100 million.

The big technology story in New Zealand this weekend is about Apple's tax bill. Or rather, the lack thereof.

A Game Boy Emulator for the Apple Watch

Since getting an Apple Watch last fall, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of content. To help address this, I made my own game a few months ago (a 3D RPG), but obviously it still didn’t address the bigger issue. An idea I had was to port an existing catalog, and emulation made perfect sense.

Very cool.

Google Maps Lets You Record Your Parking Location,...

Google Maps has received a neat feature that will help users remember where they parked. "This appears as a new menu option when you tap the blue dot, and will place a 'P' icon on the map so you can find your way back to your spot," reports Ars Technica. From the report: Google had already introduced its own proactive parking saving feature via Google Now, but it had worked by tapping into your phone's sensors and making a determination that you had most likely parked at a given spot. Sometimes, you might see this information appear when it was unwarranted, however -- like if you got off a bus or exited a taxi, Google says. The new feature in Google Maps requires a manual entry, but this is actually a bit of an advantage over the guessing done by Google Now, because it allows you to input more information about your spot. Like Apple Maps, you can add notes about where you parked -- something that's helpful for jotting down cross streets or which floor of a garage you're on, for...

The oddly creepy Bixby logo from Samsung

Today's news is seemingly all about competition:

  • Apple's possibly announcing new products tomorrow morning, as the online store and some other services are shut down from 3 AM - 8:30 AM ET. Could it be new iPads or Macs? Or just maintenance?
  • Apple's buddy SoftBank apparently yanked a $100 million investment from Essential, the new smartphone startup created by Android creator and ex-Apple employee Andy Rubin
  • Microsoft wants Mac users to switch to Surface so badly that it has created a migration tool to speed up the process
  • Siri is going to get even more competition in the AI realm, this time from Samsung's Bixby

Rumor: ‘iPhone 8’ to have a ‘water drop design

Add this to the “iPhone 8” rumors (which number about 2,042, by my count): it will have a “water drop” design that harkens back to the original Apple smartphone to celebrate the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, according to ET News.

Quoting unnamed “industry sources,” the article says Apple will adopt a 3D glass material on the back case of the iPhone 8 that gives its body “gentle, rounded” curves around the top, bottom, left and right edges. 

My take on the rumors: Apple will do this only IF it fits it with any other design plans for the iPhone 8. The company isn’t one to do things simply for nostalgia.

'Sorry, I've Forgotten My Decryption...

Thomas Claburn, reporting for The Register: The US Third Circuit Court of Appeals today upheld a lower court ruling of contempt against a chap who claimed he couldn't remember the password to decrypt his computer's hard drives. In so doing, the appeals court opted not to address a lower court's rejection of the defendant's argument that being forced to reveal his password violated his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination. In the case under review, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania held the defendant (referred to in court documents as "John Doe" because his case is partially under seal) in contempt of court for willfully disobeying and resisting an order to decrypt external hard drives that had been attached to his Mac Pro computer. The defendant's computer, two external hard drives, an iPhone 5S, and an iPhone 6 Plus had been seized as part of a child pornography investigation.

Video tip: How to password-protect zip files in...

In today's video tip, we'll show you how to use the macOS Sierra Terminal app (found in Applications > Utilities) to password-protect zip files. Zip files can be easily created without password protection in macOS Sierra by simply right-clicking a file or folder, then selecting "Compress". If you want to make sure that only people with the correct password can open a zip file, follow the instructions in this video:

The command for zipping and password-protecting a folder is:

zip -er [path and name of zipped file] [path and name of folder to be zipped]

The Terminal command for zipping and password-protecting a single file is:

zip -e [path and name of zipped file] [path and name of file to be zipped]

Unzipping is as easy as double-clicking the zipped file and entering in the correct password.

Samsung’s announcement of its new upcoming Bixby personal assistant for its Galaxy S8 has once again started the chatter about Siri vs Alexa vs Google Assistant vs Bixby. If you were to read the latest comparisons, you might get the impression Siri is a bit behind the other guys, mainly because Amazon Echo is doing well as the first real standalone speaker product for a personal assistant, and Google Home is following closely behind with its new ‘Assistant’. But with what’s rumored to be in store for iPhone 8 from good sources, I think Siri and Apple’s standalone Siri speaker product will have some big advantages.

About That Purported 10.5-Inch iPad

Business Insider, back in November:

Apple is preparing new iPads for a launch in March, Barclays
analysts Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn wrote in a note
distributed to clients on Friday. The analysts cite supply chain
sources spoken to during a trip to Asia.

“New iPads in March — Bezel-less [like the upcoming iPhone] — We
expect the 9.7-inch to move to a low-cost model, a refresh of the
12.9-inch pro and a new 10.9-inch, which is likely the same
physical size as the 9.7-inch but with a borderless screen,” the
analysts wrote.

A March iPad launch lines up with predictions previously made by
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

10.5-inch iPad next year, along with a...

Earlier this year, we learned that Andy Rubin, creator of the Android operating system, has built a new company called Essential. The company was reportedly working on a "high-end smartphone with a large edge-to-edge screen that lacks a surrounding bezel." It appears things aren't chugging along so smoothly. From a report: Andy Rubin, a co-creator of Android, lost out on a $100 million investment from SoftBank as Apple deepened ties with the Japanese investor, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. Rubin's company, Essential Products, is reportedly planning to release a new high-end smartphone this spring, and SoftBank planned to market the phone in Japan, the Journal said. But Apple subsequently agreed to commit $1 billion to SoftBank's Vision Fund, a move that "complicated" SoftBank's investment in Essential Products, the Journal reported Monday. Apple did not directly block the deal, the Journal said, though Rubin's premium phone would be released ahead of...

Apple's upcoming 2017 iPhone will feature a design that's similar to the original iPhone, according to industry analysts who spoke to Korean site ETNews [Google Translate].

The site says the iPhone will use a "water drop design" that's an homage to the original iPhone, with a rear curve that is both gentler and rounder than existing metal case edges.

Apple is said to be using a three-dimensional glass material on the back of the iPhone 8 to make it more closely resemble the deeper curves on the case of the original iPhone. It would, of course, be much larger than the first iPhone, with rumors suggesting a 5.8-inch display, and it would undoubtedly be much thinner.

The likely outcome will be that like Obama, Trump will lose the house in the next election, and that the Republicans will be forced out of power over the next four to eight years, all for an avoidable, repeated mistake.

But now we’re not so sure—maybe an event will happen in April, after Apple Park opens, or perhaps Apple will just update the product mix in the Apple Store without a press event at all.

Despite making $4.2 billion in sales in New Zealand since 2007, Apple pays no taxes in that country, the New Zealand Herald reports. Apple has paid $37 million on that income, but the money went to the Australian Tax Office instead of staying in New Zealand. On that same sum, taxes in New Zealand would have totaled $357 million, but since Apple’s New Zealand operations are run out of Australia, the company is able to take advantage of a tax…

Improving patient health through collaboration,...

Today’s Microsoft Office 365 post was written by Dennis Giles, director of Unified Communications for Advocate Health Care.

Traditionally, hospitals concentrated on taking care of patients while they were within the walls of the building. Today, there’s a new model for healthcare, one in which hospitals and healthcare systems look beyond the facility itself, helping patients avoid hospital stays and ensuring the best possible long-term outcomes. That new model requires a new way of thinking about patients and how a healthcare system operates to most efficiently care for them.

As one of Illinois’s largest hospital systems, Advocate Health Care faces special challenges. We aim for excellence in all that we do, but providing the same high level of service across our entire organization of 37,000 associates is no small task. We decided to enhance our ability to share best practices and promote teamwork among our facilities by giving all employees underlying...

Developer gets a Game Boy emulator running on the...

Gabriel O'Flaherty-Chan

If it's sufficiently fast and has a screen, someone will eventually get an old-school game emulator running on it. Over the weekend, iOS developer Gabriel O'Flaherty-Chan made that happen for the Apple Watch with a Game Boy emulator he calls "Giovanni."

Named for the leader of Team Rocket from the original Pokémon games, Giovanni runs Game Boy and Game Boy Color games on the Apple Watch Series 2 (the Series 1 hardware is presumably capable of the same performance, though the original Apple Watch is likely too slow). O'Flaherty-Chan used the existing Gambatte emulator as Giovanni's core and then added Apple Watch-friendly controls. There's room for the select, start, and B buttons at the bottom of the screen; you tap the right side of the screen for the A button, while the left side of the...

Apple Online Store Going Down for 'Maintenance...

Apple has updated its System Status page to indicate that its online store will be "updated and unavailable" due to "maintenance" tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21, between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time (or the equivalent in other time zones, such as between 3:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time).

The timing of the downtime will naturally stir speculation given that Apple is rumored to launch new products as early as this week. Moreover, Apple commonly issues press releases at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time, which is exactly when the so-called "maintenance" update is scheduled to be completed.

Last week, a well-known research firm that requested confidentiality told us that, based on their own sources, it expects Apple to announce new...
