Even though the device is not yet available, an early unboxing gave us a hands-on look at Apple’s upcoming 12-inch Retina MacBook this morning, and now Geekbench results from the device have emerged giving us a look at what kind of performance we can expect from it.

First 12-inch MacBook unboxing video hits

If you’ve been hankering for an early unboxing video of Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook, you’ve got it.

It’s in Vietnamese.

Still, it’s an unboxing video, a bit early and it shows the new 29-watt power brick, 2-meter charging cable and brand new USB Type C connectors.

The company appears to have eschewed the longer power cord that it includes with its other notebook, though the power brick does feature interchangeable plugs. Also gone are the flip-up winding posts that have long adorned Apple’s power bricks.

The charging cord itself appears somewhat thicker and stiffer than those attached to Apple’s MagSafe connectors. The UCB type C plugs look like larger versions of the...

Google Goes Crazy for Chromebooks


Google has announced two new budget-busting Chromebook computers, a tablet/notebook convertible with a full swivel screen, and a Chrome computer-on-a-stick. The Haier Chromebook 11 and the Hisense Chromebook both are available for preorder for $149. The Asus Chromebook Flip will hit the market this spring with a $249 price tag. The Asus Chromebit will be available this summer for less than $100. "Chromebooks ... could and should put increasing pressure on lower-end PCs and laptops," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

Apple wants TV networks to “handle the responsibility and cost of the streaming infrastructure” for its web TV service, Re/code reports. While Apple wants to launch its service in the fall, the streaming issue is “one of many unresolved questions,” with executives reportedly hesitant regarding the demand. It’s still too early to tell if this issue could push back the proposed autumn launch, but Apple has been pursuing…

Accessible Apple: April Newsletter

===Accessible Apple===

By: Alex Jurgensen

Hello, and welcome to a new edition of the Accessible Apple newsletter. For those of us in the blind community, I have to sadly report that our cry for equal access to the new Mac OS and Newton has gone unanswered for yet another month. What's up with that, Apple?

Well, I guess that wasn't a surprise. I mean, it was them after all that changed APIs so much that the Alva Access Group decided not to update Outspoken (1). I'm really beginning to lose hope that someone will write a screen reader for the new Mac OS. At this point, the only way I could see the Mac becoming accessible again would be if Apple were to write their own screen reader in-house, but we all know that'll never happen!!!

In other news, there have been a number of exciting developments in the Assistive Tech world since I wrote last month's newsletter. It appears that most of the industry isn't waiting for Apple to catch up accessibility-wise and...

Homeless Canadians brought to tears by the mean...

CBC:

Usually a “mean tweets” video ends in laughter, but this one ends in tears.

A new campaign by the non-profit organization Raising the Roof features people dealing with homelessness reading the mean things people have said about them on social media aloud.

The goal? To get people to see that those who have nowhere to live are human beings too.

Having been homeless myself for a period of time, I felt the pain these people went through as they read these cruel and pointless tweets. If you can help, please do. If you can’t, leave these people alone.

Surface 3 Targets Windows-Loving Prosumers


Microsoft has raised the curtain on its new Surface 3 tablet, targeting users who want a robust Windows tablet at an iPad price. Up to now, those looking for a full-featured Windows tablet had to spend $799 for a Surface Pro 3, but some customers will find their needs can be met with the new $499 Surface 3. "It allows Microsoft to continue to market and promote all of the innovations of the Surface Pro 3 and have a go-to product for those who aspire to get a Pro model, but it's not in their budget," noted Directions on Microsoft's Wes Miller.

Apple’s apparently trying to create the snazziest, most “jewelry counter-style” experience for Apple Watch buyers. As such, sources are saying that the appointment-only process will accommodate walk-ins using a system similar to one recently instituted at Genius Bars worldwide.

Back in February, Apple rolled out a new Genius Bar “customer journey” aimed at enhancing the experience for customers walking in without appointments. Instead of just being left to wait around for one’s name to be called, Genius Bar walk-in customers are now asked for their cell phone number, given a time estimate and then encouraged to leave the store...

Apple’s Lisa Jackson on the company’s green...

For almost two years, Apple Inc. ’s efforts to go green have been the responsibility of Lisa Jackson, who was hired to oversee the company’s sustainability initiatives after she stepped down as head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

She sat down with Jeffrey Ball, contributing editor at The Wall Street Journal and scholar-in-residence at Stanford University’s Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance, to discuss Apple’s commitment to renewable energy and why a recently announced solar deal is a good one for shareholders.

Apple is one of the few companies that is transparent about its environmental commitment. Sadly, this is the reason that the press goes after Apple more than other companies—Apple makes all the information available, while the others hide it.

WSJ likes Samsung Galaxy 6 more than iPhone 6

Joanna Stern:

A better camera, sharper display and faster charging put Samsung’s new flagship phones ahead in the smartphone race.

Since the dawn of the smartphone wars, there have been basic truths about Samsungs: They’re made of flimsy plastic, their cameras can’t keep up with the iPhone’s, and their modified Android software is ugly and intolerably cluttered.

With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which arrive at U.S. carriers on April 10, none of that is true anymore. I am not afraid to say it: I love Samsung’s new phones, maybe even more than my own iPhone 6. Like a child who just found out that Santa isn’t real, I have spent the past week questioning everything I know.

I like Joanna and respect her opinion a lot. I still don’t like the way Samsung does business though.

Pandora CFO confirms Apple Watch integration, says...

With more than 81 million active users, Pandora is a heavyweight in the music streaming industry. It is bigger than Spotify, which has 60 million active users, and iTunes Radio, a less popular streaming service that Apple introduced alongside iOS 6. With Apple now owning Beats Music and reportedly working to revamp the service, the competition in the streaming music business is now more intense than it has ever been.

Speaking to Fox Business, Pandora CFO Mike Herring said that, despite their rival relationship, the company still is a close partner with Apple.

Pandora, which owes part of its success to the popularity of its iPhone app, has a “frenemy kind of relationship going on” with...

This week on Wearables Wednesday I'm doing a review of the second iteration of a tracking device that works with an iOS (and Android) app to help you find lost items. Back in the TUAW days, I reviewed the first version of TrackR; now TrackR bravo is available for pre-order (US$29.99).

The Beast of Turin awakens and it’s very, very angry

Autoweek:

This unbelievable Fiat S76, the so-called Beast of Turin, is the one surviving example of a pair of speed-record contenders the Italian automaker built before WWI. Its gargantuan 28.5-liter inline-four was capable of providing an impressive 300 hp — enough to propel the car to 116 mph, and a one-mile land speed record, in 1911.

Plus, it spits hellfire and sounds meaner than anything an army of 10,000 Carlo Abarths could have ever dreamed up.

Watch the video above if you don’t believe us.

First of all, turn your volume down.

Pandora CFO points towards upcoming CarPlay...

Apple and Pandora could be teaming up where CarPlay is concerned.

As part of a wide ranging interview with FOX Business Network on Tuesday, Pandora’s chief financial officer Mike Herring broke the silence on upcoming compatibility with Apple’s in-car infotainment solution, saying the streaming service will “definitely be in CarPlay.”

While Herring failed to produce a timeline of availability, he is the first company official to comment on Pandora’s CarPlay plans. Pandora was a glaring omission when Apple announced CarPlay one year ago, and the streaming Internet music giant has yet to make its way onto Apple’s in-dash system.

Incorrect search policy

Forums: Troubleshooting

Hello,

we had some air condition failure recently in server room and sadly our hard drives overheated and turned off. Lucky us it was the only piece of hardware that turned off.

There was no damage to our hardware but XSAN admin reports "Incorrect search policy" next to MDC2.

We have three metadata controllers and only this one is being affected. We have open directory (master on mdc1 and replicas on mdc2 and third metadata controller).

In server app on mdc2 open directory service is turned off and any attempt to turn it on will result in "on/off" switch sitting in "on" status for about a minute and afterwards returning to its "off" state.

In server app of mdc1 and mdc3 i can see open directory running normally and both servers are reporting that mdc2 is running replica. Im unable to bind any clients to mdc2...

India's Tussle With Internet Freedom


The Supreme Court of India last week struck down a law that curtailed the freedom of online speech. The law permitted arrests for posting "offensive" content online. The highest court in India ruled that Section 66(A) of the Information Technology Act was unconstitutional, and in its ruling said it had no hesitation in striking it down. The court had examined the legality of the law, which made posting information considered grossly offensive or menacing in character punishable by up to three years in jail.

The limited selection of CarPlay apps has not grown much since its launch, with one of the most prominent hold-outs being Pandora. In a recent interview with Fox Business, however, Pandora CFO Mike Herring said that the company plans to add CarPlay support soon. “We’ll definitely be in CarPlay,” Herring said in the interview.

In the past, Pandora has told us that it is in “frequent discussions” with Apple about various topics, although it has denied supporting CarPlay. The interesting idea with Pandora for CarPlay, however, is that Apple has to sanction which apps gain support for its in-car offering. CarPlay already supports iTunes Radio and with...

If you were planning on writing a function for the Apple Watch, now’s the time to begin.

Apple has officially invited all third party developers to submit Watch apps to the App Store. This means any of the 1.2 million apps can now submit updates including Watch apps (using the WatchKit framework), beyond the select partners Apple rolled out last week.

As a reminder, Watch apps come bundled as extensions inside normal iOS apps. This means customers can update the apps in the iPhone ready for the Watch’s release on the 24th. Apple is pointing developers to the submission reference guidelines for more information on this process.

Review: VERT Wearable Fitness Monitor

Mayfonk Athletic's VERT Wearable Fitness Monitor ($125) is a fitness tracker with one very specific application — jump measurements. Most notably, vertical jump measurements. VERT is a small sensor which comes with a charger and a VERTbelt, which stretches out to be worn across the waist. A clip on the belt allows the VERT to be worn on your person during athletic use. The charger connects VERT on one end and plugs into a USB port on the other side. While the VERT sensor itself displays readings, the free Vert app should be downloaded to gain full use of the accessory, as it connects to VERT using Bluetooth 4.0.{/exp:char_limit}

Zero G for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: Stick your phone...

Zero G Prototype. Photo for Apple World Today by Steve Sande ©2015, All rights reserved.

There are a lot of iPhone cases on the market that use nano-suction material to affix the case to the iPhone, `but this is the first case I think I've seen that uses nano-suction to let you stick the case on just about any clean, flat surface. The Zero G case from Mega Tiny Corporation is currently in a Kickstarter campaign for funding, and if the pre-production device I reviewed is any indication, this could be the wooden stake to put through the heart of selfie sticks.

Why? Well, imagine you want to take a photo with some friends. Instead of pulling out the selfie stick and looking like a total fool, you just walk up to anything with a flat and clean surface and slap the iPhone onto it. It sticks, you take the photo with the self-timer, and then you pull...

Desk version 1.3 adds features, squashes bugs

Developer John Saddington is one very busy guy. About a month ago he released version 1.2 of his popular Desk text/Markdown editor for OS X (US$29.99) to the Mac App Store, and now he’s just finished version 1.3. What has he added to Desk in just a month?

First, Saddington added post formats for WordPress and Tumblr, two of the popular blogging platforms supported in Desk. At the present time, those formats include text, photo, quote and link, and he plans on adding additional formats in the future.

There’s also a Typewriter Mode now. What’s Typewriter Mode? The current line of text that’s being written is always at the bottom of the screen, with the rest of your blog post scrolling above it. It’s actually quite useful!

We have just set up XSAN (version 3/Mavericks) with 7 users.
All the users have joined the "Workgroup" by default and all work perfectly well.
We have an 8th client who we can mount as a computer in the XSAN share list, but we cannot add to "Workgroup". Both XSAN Admin (3.1) and Server (3.2.2) advise that user already exists, which is not the case.
We've attempted to remove the computer and add again with no luck.

Today is World Backup Day -- a once-a-year reminder for everyone to assess their backup solution and ensure their data is being saved properly. While many people use a local storage option like a hard drive or NAS to backup their computer files, the conventional backup advice suggests you should also have a secondary backup online in case of fire or theft, which could destroy your local backups. To help you find an online backup up provider, we profile some of the most popular services for archiving your files online.

Apple to hold Q2 earnings on Monday, April 27th

Apple’s most recent profit report will take place on Monday, April 27th.

The Q2 earnings report will take place at 2 PM PST/5 PM EST, and audio from the call will be streamed on Apple’s website.

In Apple’s previous Q1 earnings call, CEO Tim Cook detailed a record holiday quarter for the company with iPhone sales breaking the 74 million unit mark driven by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Additionally, last quarter saw another milestone as Apple shipped its one billionth iOS device, and the company saw over US$74 billion in revenue.

Stay tuned for the full report as it comes in and, as always, let us know what you think in the comments.

The folks at Todoist have released Todoist 10 for iOS, their most ambitious update yet. The changes further solidify my decision to go all-in on Todoist, and make me feel confident that I'll keep my promise to 5by5's Jordan Cooper to not use another task manager for 12 months. Why? Because data entry is so easy now, it's almost equal to the speed of using paper and pen. Here's my look at Todoist 10 for iOS.

First look: Todoist for iOS gets smarter and better-...

Some people get a thrill from checking items off a hand-written to-do list. Others prefer to manage their lives with feature-packed digital calendars. I am both, and when I discovered Todoist earlier this year, it seemed like the best of both worlds: the ease of managing tasks in a centralized app combined with the simple pleasure of marking tasks off when you finish them. Now Todoist is even better with a facelift that delivers a new look and even more helpful new features.

The popular task management app on Tuesday rolled out a brand new version for iOS that sets the stage for a dramatic, platform-wide overhaul. Some 4 million people use Todoist to add 510,000 projects daily, and share an average of 52,000 tasks a day across millions of projects. Todoist founder and CEO Amir Salihefendic told me his team has been working to make the task management tool’s mobile apps as powerful...

Apple denies any infringement, and says that Ericsson is in any case demanding unreasonable amounts.

In an attempt to up the ante, Ericsson called on the U.S. International Trade Commission to block imports of the iPhone into the country, and the ITC has now agreed to carry out an investigation, reports PC World.
