CloudConvert easily converts hundreds of file types...

Usually, when you have a video file on your iPad or iPhone, the file can play on that device—why else would it be there? But occasionally you’ll run into a need to convert a video file, like I did recently, and when that happens CloudConvert gets it done right on the same device, no computer necessary. CloudConvert can handle more than just video files, but that’s where my story begins.

Rule No. 1 about Fight Cam...

I recently set up a Motorola Focuss66 wireless camera in my kids’ playroom. They spend a lot of time in this room where imaginations run amok, laughter is contagious, and inevitably fighting erupts. The psuedo-brawls always seems to erupt shortly after my wife or I walk out of the room, leaving us to decipher the crying and bruises to figure out exactly what happened.

But new data suggests that the rate of Android switchers in the U.S. was steady last quarter, implying that international users are the ones who made the jump to iPhone in record numbers.

China accused of protectionism through new...

The NY Times reports that the Chinese government has adopted a set of supposed cybersecurity regulations on western companies selling technology to banks. These requirements are so absurd that it would be impossible for companies like Apple to comply.

The Chinese government has adopted new regulations requiring companies that sell computer equipment to Chinese banks to turn over secret source code, submit to invasive audits and build so-called back doors into hardware and software, according to a copy of the rules obtained by foreign technology companies that do billions of dollars’ worth of business in China.

The paper reports that while the regulations are so far limited to sales to Chinese banks, they are merely the first in a series of new cybersecurity policies expected to be introduced in the coming months...

Mac Pro Vault stuffs 48 top-of-the-line Macs into...

What do you get when you stick 48 Mac Pro units in the same spot? A data center cabinet from CyberLynk's Mac Pro Vault that is near pornographic in the amount of raw Apple computing power it can hold.

Mac Pro Vault cabinets can hold up to 48 computers.

The new Mac Pro cabinets are part of the company's colocation service that began with Mac Mini Vault in 2010 and now extends to the 2013-era Mac Pro units. The first Mac Pro Vault cabinet was up and running in late 2014 in the company's Milwaukee data center. CyberLynk plans to have Mac Pro cabinets roll out to its second data center in Phoenix by mid-2015.

Microsoft launches revamped Outlook mail app based...

Microsoft announced plans today to launch a new app for its Outlook email service on iOS. The app is based on the Acompli software that the company purchased in December for $200 million. The app includes “email triage” features found in the old app as well as new features to help appeal to a wider audience, such as the ability to toggle threaded conversation views.

The Outlook iOS app will also support mail from third-party services beyond Microsoft’s. iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo email accounts can be plugged into the app, and attachments can be added to messages from cloud services like Google Drive and Dropox.

Acompli-based Outlook for iOS, Android promises to...

Microsoft has updated its Outlook clients for iOS and Android today. The clients—a stable release for iOS, a preview for Android—work with Exchange, Outlook.com, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, as well as standards-based mail.

Redmond has had Outlook clients for the mobile platforms before, but these have been front-ends for the Outlook Web App, Microsoft's HTML front-end to Exchange. The new client is something new: it's based on the Acompli e-mail and calendaring client. Microsoft bought the then 18-month old Acompli late last year for an estimated $200 million.

Announcing the app's availability, former Acompli CEO Javier Soltero, now on the Outlook team, said that Acompli users dip into the app for, on average, 24 seconds at a time. Much of the time, they perform what Microsoft calls e-mail triage: deciding whether an e-mail should be deleted, flagged for follow-up, or merely marked as read. Similarly, meeting invitations can be quickly accepted,...

Both companies shipped 74.5 million handsets during the quarter, though Samsung still outsold Apple in terms of the annual total by a hefty margin. Those quarterly sales gave both companies an equal marketshare of 19.6%.

There's a GHOST in Linux's Library


Patches for GHOST, a critical vulnerability in glibc, the Linux GNU C Library, now are available through vendor communities for a variety of Linux server and desktop distributions. Qualys earlier this week reported its discovery of GHOST, a vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely take control of an entire system without having any prior knowledge of system credentials. Qualys security researchers found the GHOST flaw and worked closely with Linux distribution vendors in a coordinated effort to develop a patch for all affected systems.

How Facebook is using autoplaying videos and ad tech...

Scrolling slowly through News Feed, you’ll see a slew of videos. Some are from your friends. Others are ads from brands you like. All of them play automatically. Facebook now sees 3 billion video views a day, a fun fact that could have a huge effect on the network’s bottom line.

More than 50 percent of American Facebook users who visit the network daily watch one video per day, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said in the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call on Wednesday. (It counts as a view if you watch a clip for three seconds or more.) And as Facebook decreases the number of ads it shows, it has to make sure the ads you do see are high-quality, ones that you’ll actually respond to. The network is now commanding 335 percent more money for fewer ads based on the power of its ad targeting tech, which hooks into a level of detail about you that only Facebook (and maybe your best friend) has access to. Video ads, which...

Tech-Savvy Cubans Build Their Own Private Internet


Because Cuba's government makes it difficult for all but a handful of Cubans to access the Internet, people in Havana and other parts of the country reportedly have linked thousands of PCs to create an informal network known as "StreetNet," or "SNet" for short. The network was built with commercially available equipment. The PCs are connected by WiFi antennae and Ethernet cables strung across streets and over rooftops. SNet's main uses appear to be sharing gossip and news, accessing popular TV shows and movies, and playing online games.

How America got addicted to road salt — and why it’s...

Vox:

There are huge benefits to salting the roads. One 1992 study found that spreading salt can reduce accidents by 87 percent during and after a snowstorm.But road salt also comes with major downsides: Salt is corrosive, chewing through cars, trucks, concrete, and steel bridges. Worse still, when all that salt dissolves and washes away, it steadily accumulates in rivers and streams. Other times, moose and elk get attracted to the salt and wander onto roads, raising the risk of crashes.

We have similar issues here in Canada with road salt and its affect on cars and the environment. That last sentence came to light for me while riding my motorcycle in the Banff National Park. I came around a corner and there was a herd of massive elk in the middle of the road, licking the salt off the pavement. It created a very high Pucker Factor, to say the least.

Shortly after, instructions appeared on GitHub showing how to install the San Francisco font from the Apple Watch onto a Mac with OS X Yosemite since Apple changed the system font from Lucida Grande to Helvetica.

Unfortunately (but unsurprisingly), it appears that someone (Apple?) has forced that project to be removed from GitHub citing copyright issues since Apple owns the San Francisco font and distributes it only for use with Apple Watch,...

How one of the best films at Sundance was shot using...

The Verge:

Plenty of amateur films have been shot using iPhones, but by all reports, this is the first movie at the Sundance Film Festival to be shot almost entirely on an Apple device. It was a decision that indie writer and director Sean Baker made to accommodate the film’s small budget. But you’d never guess the camera, to look at it: Tangerine was shot in a widescreen, 2:35:1 aspect ratio, and its camera zooms through the streets of LA with a fluidity you’d never expect from a handheld device. And yet despite his camera of choice, Baker says the iPhone made for a good partner. “It was surprisingly easy,” Baker says. “We never lost any footage.”

Another interesting story about the functionality and versatility of the iPhone.

USA Today:

On Jan. 28, 1985, at A&M Recording Studios in Hollywood, following the American Music Awards, more than 40 artists gathered to record a song Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson had written to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa. Most of that show’s winners — including Cyndi Lauper, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, the Pointer Sisters, Kenny Rogers and the Jacksons — participated.

This was a pretty big deal at the time. Part of the magic is that they managed to keep the whole production a complete secret until the song was released.

The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don...

HughPickens.com writes: Five years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad and insisted that it would do many things better than either a laptop or a smartphone. Will Oremus writes at Future Tense that by most standards, the iPad has been a success, and the tablet has indeed emerged as a third category of computing device. But there's another way of looking at the iPad. According to Oremus, Jobs was right to leave out the productivity features and go big on the simple tactile pleasure of holding the Internet in your hands. But for all its popularity and appeal, the iPad never has quite cleared the bar Jobs set for it, which was to be "far better" at some key tasks than a laptop or a smartphone. The iPad may have been "far better" when it was first released, but smartphones have come a long way. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and their Android equivalents are now convenient enough for most mobile computing tasks that there's no need to carry around a tablet as well. That helps explain why iPad...

Following a dismal day for the market yesterday which saw Apple down a few points ahead of its earnings report—it was soon back on the rise in after hours trading—both Apple and the Dow are climbing this morning largely due to those record numbers yesterday. Hovering around 7.5% higher since opening this morning and occasionally crossing 8%, Apple is positioned to cross its previous record high shortly.

In terms of Apple’s market cap, the company added nearly $50 billion overnight...

Universal Pictures has announced that principal filming of the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle is now finally underway. The announcement confirms that the movie, dropped by Sony back in November, will still follow the original three-act structure based around three keynote presentations.

Universal Pictures today announced that principal photography has commenced in San Francisco on Steve Jobs. Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.

Surprisingly, Universal says that the final product announcement will be the iMac, in 1998, rather than the...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

I never expected to spend $25 in Candy Crush Soda Saga. Actually, I never expected to spend $25 within any mobile game, least of all something like Candy Crush Soda Saga. But here we are a couple weeks later, and now I have to collect my iTunes receipts and sheepishly forward them to my editor. (Sorry, boss!)

Tim Cook insists iPad prospects still rosy despite...

Apple’s press release yesterday noted “all-time record revenue from iPhone and Mac sales as well as record performance of the App Store,” while remaining silent on iPad sales. The reason? The slide continued last quarter, with year-on-year sales down 18%, and a reduction in average selling price meaning revenue was down 22%.

Tim Cook acknowledges that the switch to larger-screened iPhones mean the iPad is being squeezed from both sides.

There’s probably some level of cannibalization that’s going on, with the Mac on one side and the phone on the other.

It’s also undeniable that people upgrade their iPads less frequently than their iPhones–Cook putting the number at “somewhere between” the 2-year cycle of the...

Where to get the perfect custom iPhone case

Your iPhone case says a lot about you—a Speck CandyShell, for example, tells the world that you’re fun, bright, and quirky-yet-practical when it comes to protection and usability. TwelveSouth’s BookBook, on the other hand, says you love books—even fake books.

So, here’s the question: If your iPhone case is a window to your soul, do you really want to settle for something mass produced and inherently un-unique, when you could spring for a custom case? If the answer is no, you’re in luck: Thanks to a myriad of custom case-makers, personalized cases are relatively inexpensive and easy to come by.

Apple didn’t just set a new record for the company when it beat every forecast in the Q1 results announced yesterday, it set a new world record for the most profitable quarter of any company in history, says credit ratings giant Standard & Poor’s. Its net profit of $18B far exceeded the previous record of $15.9B, set by oil company ExxonMobil back in 2012.

With such huge numbers difficult to grasp, there have been various attempts around the net to put the numbers into perspective.  TechCrunch expressed it as a profit of $8.3M per hour. Reddit user Cal00 noted that Apple made more from the iPhone alone that Google and Microsoft made from their entire product ranges–combined...

Apple made all the money last quarter—its $18 billion in profit is not only the best quarter Apple’s ever had, it’s the best quarter any company has ever had, and a jaw-dropping 74.5 million iPhones sold is a big reason why. But record-shattering $74.6 billion revenues weren’t the most interesting part of Tuesday’s Q1 2015 earnings conference call, in which Tim Cook took questions from analysts about the rest of Apple’s plan for success, and how to keep this momentum going.

The company posted $18 billion in profit (on $74 billion in revenue), the largest quarterly profit by any company, ever. The previous record was $16 billion by Russia's Gazprom (the largest natural gas extractor in the world) in 2011. Apple sold 74.5 million iPhones last quarter, along with 5.5 million Macs and 21.4 million iPads.

Until today, Russia’s Gazprom (the largest natural gas extractor in the world) held the record at $16.2 billion in a quarter.

Apple now holds the record: $18.04 billion in profit, fiscal Q1 of 2015.

For reference, that means Apple makes around $8.3 million dollars per hour in profit (24 hours a day).

This was a company written off as all but dead less than 20 years ago.

Tim Cook: The Apple Watch ships in April

Ars Technica:

Apple CEO Tim Cook dropped a rare bit of product news on the company’s Q1 2015 earnings call: the Apple Watch begins shipping in April.The Apple Watch will start at $349 for the aluminum Apple Watch Sport model, though starting prices for the more expensive stainless steel and gold models haven’t yet been revealed.

About the time frame we expected. As we get closer to a sales date, I find it interesting how many people I hear are at least interested in seeing the Apple Watch with an eye towards buying it.

The Mac Observer Spin: If you don't need Flash Player on your Mac, don't install it. Flash is an ongoing security headache that doesn't seem to be improving despite Adobe's constant updates.

Cook confirms Apple Watch will ship in April

It’s not a specific release date, but the Apple Watch now has a slated month for its release.

Per Macworld, Apple CEO confirmed that the Apple Watch will begin shipping in April. Cook dropped the news on Apple’s quarterly earnings call Tuesday afternoon, saying Apple Watch is “on schedule” and will ship in April. The company reportedly hasn’t publicly committed to a date because Cook and co. are still working on the device’s battery life.

According to recent reports, Apple is aiming for 19 hours of mixed active and passive use, but isn’t sure it can nail that goal for the first generation of Apple Watches.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
