Apple has responded to environmental objections to its planned $950M data center, arguing that the proposed development is necessary, would meet projected demand for the next 10-15 years, and would pose no risk to the local environment.

Although Apple was initially given the go-ahead for the center, construction had to be delayed when appeals against the decision were filed. The planning body, An Bord Pleanála, asked Apple to respond to five concerns, and Business Insider has now seen a transcript of the company’s oral response …

QuickShift can help reduce Mac Desktop clutter

QuickShift is a brand new tool from Growth Beats designed to reduce desktop clutter. Personally, I’m a neat freak so my Mac Desktop is pretty well organized. However, my wonderful wife’s Desktop has dozens, perhaps hundreds, of files scattered everywhere. Looking at her MacBook screen makes my head hurt — especially when she’s having a technical problem and calls for her hubby’s assistance.

If you’re like my wife, QuickShift could make your life much easier. The app will automatically launch each time you log-in. When you first launch QuickShift, you’ll be prompted to choose (or create) a Home folder for storing files. Next, you must add folders to use the tool effectively. The easiest way is to use the Add Folder option, which is the first item in the grid (it appears when you haven’t selected any item to move or copy). 

(Why are you asked to select the Home folder? Apple’s guidelines are designed to...

ADATA’s Charge/Sync 2-in-1 can possibly reduce the...

Cables, cables, we all got cables. Between our iPhones, iPads, Macs, and (for some folks) Android gadgets, too darn many cables. Since a truly wireless world is still some time away, you can possibly simplify your life with ADATA’s Charge/Sync 2-in-1 cable.

Fully Apple MFi (“made for iPhone’) certified, the approximately 40-inch long charging/cross-device data syncing cable comes with both Lightning and MicroUSB ports that are compatible with both Apple and Android devices. One port can charge iOS and Android together (hey, we can all get along). The front side is for the iPhone, the back side for a Samsung phone.

Each cable supports a 2.4A current, which means charging is relatively fast. It took about an hour to charge my iPhone 6s Plus from 20% of battery power to 100%. (If you use the cable with 2A charger then you can charge your phone faster.)

Warren Buffett’s $1B investment in AAPL sees stock...

The billion dollar AAPL investment Warren Buffett’s conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway disclosed in an SEC filing a fortnight ago seems to have gone a long way toward restoring investor confidence. Fortune reports that the stock has climbed 9% since the disclosure, taking it back above the $100 mark.

Buffett tends to have that effect on stocks—for example, when the company disclosed a stake in Kinder Morgan in February, shares shot up 11%. Apple’s rise in the past few weeks is no doubt partially the cause of Berkshire Hathaway’s disclosure.

AAPL’s share price dropped sharply after the company’s Q2 earnings report revealing a substantial year-on-year fall...

Fashion Friday: ‘The Power of Ten’ T-shirt

Over the years, I’ve collected lots of nifty T-shirts from trade shows I’ve covered — mainly the late, lamented Macworld Expos held in Boston, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Paris. Over the next few weeks I’ll be “modeling” some of the items in my collection.

Today I’m pictured wearing a T-shirt celebrating the launch of Mac OS X. In the 1990s Apple was trying to determine a operating system strategy as the original (and revolutionary) Mac OS work was getting a bit long in the tooth. 

After the Copland project was cancelled in 1996, bought NeXT (the company founded by Steve Jobs after he left Apple) and its NeXTSTEP operating system. The technology would serve as the foundation of OS X and facilitated Jobs return to the company he helped found. 

The first version of Mac OS X debuted in 2001. But it wasn’t until Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar) rolled out on Aug. 23, 2002, that the operating system seemed truly polished.

Apple Not Allowed To Open Stores In India

ffkom writes: Reuters reports: "India has said Apple Inc must meet a rule obliging foreign retailers to sell at least 30 percent locally-sourced goods if it wishes to open stores in the country, a senior government official told Reuters. A change in legislation last year exempted foreign retailers selling high-tech goods from the rule, which states 30 percent of the value of goods sold in the store should be made in India. However, Apple's products were not considered to be in this category, said the official, who has direct knowledge of the matter." Now just imagine what Apple stores in the U.S. would look like if 30% of their offerings had to be made in the US... "They did ask for a waiver but didn't provide any material on record to justify it. The decision was taken only after a thorough examination of their application," the source said. Apple planned to open at least three stores in India by the end of 2017. Separate sources said Apple talked with the Indian government about...

Patent Troll VirnetX Wants To Ban FaceTime and...

An anonymous reader writes: Earlier this year, patent troll VirnetX won a court battle with Apple to the tune of $625 million. Now, the company wants to increase the damages award by $190 million. Law360 reports: "At a post-trial hearing Wednesday, Texas technology company VirnetX argued that although an injunction blocking Apple's popular video chatting and messaging features, along with a virtual private network on demand feature, may seem like a harsh remedy, it is necessary because of the irreparable harm Apple's infringement caused the company. VirnetX also asked the court to increase the jury's damages award by at least $190 million, arguing that Apple has been the 'poster child' for unreasonable litigation tactics." VirnetX also wants the court to block FaceTime and iMessage entirely. "Meanwhile, Apple argued that in light of U.S. Patent and Trademark Office decisions rejecting the four patents-in-suit, an injunction would be inappropriate, as would any ongoing royalty based...

If Apple wants to compete with the Amazon Echo and Google Home, it doesn’t necessarily need a brand-new product. Instead, why not just slap a more powerful microphone and an onboard speaker into a next-generation Apple TV?

VentureBeat, citing an anonymous source, says that Apple’s rumored Amazon Echo competitor “may” just be a refreshed Apple TV. Besides a mic and speaker, the new box would probably need a more powerful processor if it’s going to process voice queries quickly and accurately.

In a hearing in Galway, Ireland on Tuesday, Apple fielded concerns from locals regarding a planned data center that is shaping up to be the country's largest consumer of electricity, with some estimates placing usage rates surpassing Dublin's entire daily supply.

Apple considered buying Time Warner

iTunes and services chief Eddy Cue proposed the idea of Apple bidding on media conglomerate Time Warner at the end of last year, according to the FT.

I’m not really surprised by this. Apple is looking for ways to enter a tight market, perhaps a purchase would be the right way to go. By the sound of the story, it was only a suggestion–Apple looks a lot of proposals, but they don’t pull the trigger on all of them.

The report also said:

The report adds that Apple plans to ramp up spending on original content to “several hundred million dollars a year” in order to better compete with rivals like Amazon and Netflix, both of which offer a growing number of exclusive TV series.

This also makes sense to me.

Patent troll wants Apple to shut down iMessage and...

For some companies, winning $625 million from Apple is not enough of a reward.

On Wednesday, VirnetX asked a Texas judge to order Apple to shut down iMessage and FaceTime while their patent case goes to appeal. Previously, VirnetX was awarded $625 million in the case after it convinced the jury that Apple committed patent infringement. If the judge grants the injunction, Apple will be forced to either suspend iMessage and FaceTime or find a last-minute workaround to the patented technology.

One of the patents in question involves establishing secure communications through Internet domain names. In asking for the injunction, VirnetX argued that although forcing a company to shut down two of its most popular services may seem excessive, it’s necessary because the infringement has done “irreparable harm” to VirnetX.

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior VP of Internet services (including iTunes), brought up the idea with Olaf Olafsson, Time Warner’s head of corporate strategy, in late 2015. However, the proposed bid never went anywhere—the discussions were so preliminary that Apple CEO Tim Cook was not involved, according to the reports.

Marcel Lehel Lazar, 44, is not a hacker in the technical sense of the word. He’s a social engineer: a clever and persistent individual with a lot of patience who a Romanian prosecutor once described as “the obsessive-compulsive type.” By his own admission, Lazar has no programming skills. He didn’t find vulnerabilities or write exploits. Instead, he’s good at investigating, finding information online and making connections.

Along with Google, Apple and others promoting voice-activated artificial intelligence systems to young children, the company could now face multimillion-dollar fines. "This is part of the initial wave of marketing to children using the internet of things," says Jeff Chester, executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy, a privacy advocacy group that helped write the law. "It is exactly why the law was enacted in the first place, to protect young people from pervasive data collection."

Apple is looking towards a means of charging its cars, whenever they may happen to debut.

The company is rumored to be in talks with several charging station companies about their underlying technologies.

The talks are largely unsurprising given that Apple is widely believed to be researching and developing its own electric vehicle, which could enter production by 2020.

The charging firms themselves are reportedly treading carefully and limiting they information with Apple, which may wind up being a competitor in the next decade.

It is unclear whether Apple would want its own proprietary technology, such as Tesla Motors’ Supercharger network, or design a system compatible with offerings from other market players.

New iPhone 7 schematics suggest similar dimensions,...

There are a pair of new iPhone 7 schematics circling the Internet today, depicting the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch SKUs of Apple’s next-generation flagship phone. The 4.7 inch iPhone 7 drawing appears pretty much as expected, resembling the iPhone 6s by and large with repositioned (and larger) rear camera and redesigned antenna lines. Similar three dimensional schematics surfaced two weeks ago.

The measurements listed indicate the 7 will be a tad thicker at 7.2mm excluding the camera bump, compared to 7.1 mm for the iPhone 6s, but a 0.1mm difference is effectively nothing and effectively impossible to notice by humans. (Sadly, these schematics show that the new iPhone 7 camera will indeed protrude from the rest of the casing).

Report: Apple considered buying Time Warner last...

The Financial Times is reporting that Apple considered a buyout of Time Warner late last year, with Apple executive Eddy Cue raising the idea at a meeting with Time Warner’s head of corporate strategy, Olaf Olafsson. The idea of bid was very much tentative and did not enter serious negotiations involving Tim Cook, according to the report. However, Apple is still interested in acquiring media company talent and sources indicate the company is ramping spending on original content: “several hundred million dollars a year”.

Apple has long been rumored to want to launch a skinny cable subscription service for internet television, in concert with its Apple TV set top box. At Startup Fest earlier in the week, Tim Cook said he wants...

PV150 Power Bank provides extra juice to your iOS...

ADATA Technology’s PV150 Power Bank provides extra juice to your iPhone or iPad — and looks good doing it thanks to its leather-textured exterior. (The exterior is actually made of plastic, but sports leather textures and stitching.)

The smooth streamlined body — available in black, white, or blue — also provides some extra “grip-ability” and even feels good to the touch. It’s also small enough to slip into a small bag or purse. Of course, appearance, size, and texture would be useless if the PV150 didn’t pack some punch. It does, thanks to its 1000mAh battery, single 2A input for faster self-charging, and a 2.1A output so you can charge your gadget more quickly. 

My tests showed that the PV 150 Power Bank, when fully charged, could recharge my iPhone 6s Plus about four times before needing to be recharged itself. It took about an hour to charge my phone from near death (10% battery power) to 100%. A full charge of...

Review: Burkley hardshell leather MacBook Air case,...

I’m not normally one for hiding Apple’s gorgeous designs away inside cases, but my 11-inch MacBook Air is used almost exclusively when I’m out and about, so it does normally live in a TwelveSouth BookBook case to keep it safe on its travels. I adore that case, so persuading me to set it aside for an alternative would not be an easy task.

But I was very taken with the leather iPhone and iPad cases I recently reviewed from NY-based Burkley, so I decided to give one of the company’s snap-on leather MacBook Air covers a try. It currently offers these for the MacBook Air only (both 11- and 13-inch) – though it does also have a non-snap-on variation for the 12-inch MacBook.

Burkley likes to mix up its leather offerings for each product, with the Antique Camel Leather I liked last time not available for the MacBook, so I tried the Special...

Pixelmator 3.5 Canyon brings new selection tools and...

Photoshop is the gold standard of image-editing apps—and it’s priced to match, with a $10/month Creative Cloud Photography Plan the cheapest way to buy it. On the other end of the price spectrum, Preview comes free with OS X and lets you do ultra-basic edits like cropping and simple color adjustments, and Photos is an image organizer that has some good editing capabiltiies too. In the middle—right in the sweet spot, I’d argue—is Pixelmator, a $30 standalone app from Pixelmator Team that was just updated to version 3.5.

Pixelmator 3.5 Canyon (available in the Mac App Store) is a major update to the image editor, and it’s aimed at making the app even easier to use. It’s got a new Quick Selection tool that attempts to recognize what you’re trying to select, and a new Magnetic Selection Tool that goes even further by snapping to the edges of an object in your image.

There’s a smarter Auto Selection tool and a brand new Magnetic Selection tool to accurately and quickly cutout objects from a scene in a photograph. There’s also a brand new Retouch extension for the native OS X Photos app, integrating refined brush-style edits into iCloud Photo Library. Video demo after the break …

All drop-tests should be done this way: iPhone 6s vs...

Drop-tests are always fun to watch, but I’ve always felt that the reliability of most of them is suspect simply because there are so many variables.

Most involve someone dropping a phone by hand, and the distance is often as imprecisely measured as ‘waist height’ or ‘head height,’ making it hard to be sure both phones experienced exactly the same force. Dropping a phone from a hand can result in differences in initial angles, and releasing one side of the phone a fraction of a second before the other can impart a rotation to the device. In short, most drop-tests are more...

Ye gods! You're a deity in Black and White 2

By Aaron Lee

If you've ever wanted to be a god, Black and White 2 from Feral Interactive gives you the chance. It's a $19.99 sequel to the real-time strategy sequel for Mac OS X 10.9.5 or higher. It's a fun, addicting game, though not without flaws. 

In Black and White 2, which cleverly combines elements of different game genres, you reprise your role as a powerful deity in search of a following. You return to the once idyllic world of Eden, where the discovery of weaponry and warfare has tainted the world. With the help of your gigantic Creature that you raise from infancy, you must earn the respect and worship of the natives. 

How you choose to do that, whether through nurturing them or terrorizing them, is up to you. You can choose to restore order by building a harmonious city for your flock — or by waging war on non-believers. Heck, you can even toss your own followers at their enemies if...

Why you Need to Experience a Nile Cruise

Forums: General FCS Discussion

Nile Cruise holidays seem best in all over travels, from the positive side we offer the opportunity to travel in Nile Cruise with the 5 star comforts of hotel. The benefit is that you’ll trip and visit temples with hundreds of new tourists according to a trip timetable, neglecting much air pollution and noise where dozens of boats are traveling along each other which are really surprising. Another big thing about Nile Cruise trip is a low cost travel. This way you don’t have to carry lots of money with you during your Nile Cruise trip. You will get highest enjoyment with our cruise timetable and benefits of the many activities offered.

Peter Thiel, Gawker, and Freedom of Speech

Jason Willick, writing for The American Interest in defense of Peter Thiel:

It’s also not clear what policy response Gawker’s outraged
defenders would recommend. Put caps on the amount of money people
can contribute to legal efforts they sympathize with? That would
put the ACLU and any number of advocacy groups out of business. It
would also represent a far greater threat to free expression than
a court-imposed legal liability for the non-consensual publication
of what is essentially revenge porn. If Marshall and others are
worried about the superrich harassing critics with genuinely
frivolous lawsuits — as, yes, authoritarian characters like
Donald Trump have attempted to do — they would have more success
backing tort reform measures to limit litigiousness overall than
attacking Thiel for contributing to a legitimate...

Opinion: Wouldn’t it be nice if the new MacBook Pro...

Earlier this week it was reported that an upcoming MacBook Pro refresh would bring a thinner design, Touch ID support, and an OLED touch bar above the keyboard. One of the longstanding requests by MacBook users, however, has been an option for cellular connectivity and now it looks like we might be one step closer to that coming to fruition. As noted by PatentlyApple, Apple has recently been granted a patent for a MacBook with cellular connectivity.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard whispers that Apple is working on MacBook with cellular connectivity. In 2011, a MacBook Pro with 3G connectivity and a SIM card slot from 2007 was put up for...

  • Foxconn managed to reduce workforce by 60,000 people at one plant in Kunshan, China. How? It gave their jobs to robots

In India, it’s required that any company wanting to set up a retail location must sell at least 30 percent locally sourced goods, but reports claimed that because of Apple’s “cutting-edge technology,” it would be able to circumvent this requirement. According to a report from Reuters today, however, that is not the case.

Apple will have to sell at least 30% locally sourced goods if it wants to open up retail outlets in India, a senior government official tells Reuters.

Apple will open three retail stores in India before the end of 2027, reports FactorDaily, quoting an unnamed “source familiar with the decision.” The retail stores will reportedly open in Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai within the the next 18 months. According to the report, each Apple Store will be spread across 10,000 square feet and will be located at high street locations of the three cities. The stores, for which Apple executives are searching for real estate, will need an investment of $3 million to $5 million (Rs20 crore to Rs33 crore) each. 

A legislative change in India last year made foreign retailers who sell high-tech goods exempt from the 30%-...

Not surprisingly, the long-rumored “Apple Car” will most likely be an electric vehicle — or at least a hybrid auto. According to Reuters, Apple is investigating how to charge electric cars, talking to charging station companies and hiring engineers with expertise in the area, according to “people familiar with the matter and a review of LinkedIn profiles.”

The article says it’s not certain whether Apple would want its own proprietary technology, such as Tesla Motors' Supercharger network, or design a system compatible with offerings from other market players. Still, Apple reportedly hired at least four electric vehicle charging specialists, including former BMW employee Rónán Ó Braonáin. In January, Apple hired Nan Liu, an engineer who researched a form of wireless charging for electric vehicles and this month Apple hired former Google charging expert Kurt Adelberger.
