'The Practice of Cloud System Administration...


The Practice of Cloud System Administration, Volume 2 is a look into IT gone bad in some companies, and how doing it right can salvage enterprise use of cloud computing. The authors make 11 statements about computers and their networks on the first page of the book's preface. They ask which statements are true. If you get most of them correct, you probably have only one reason left to read this book: It will challenge some of what you hold valid. However, you most likely will get numerous wrong answers.

In the early years of OS X, the Mac operating system was sold on a DVD. If a user forgot the administrator password, perhaps the simplest way (of several) would be to use that disc to set a new administrator password and regain control of the Mac. Nowadays, there is no install disc provided with OS X, and so an alternative method is necessary. John Martellaro explores just a few.

Report: Microsoft and Yahoo vie to become Safari’s...

Google Maps and YouTube are no longer bundled as default apps on iPhones and iPads, but there's one big place on Apple's devices where Google is still the default option: the Safari search bar. Microsoft's Bing, Yahoo (also Bing-powered), and the privacy-minded DuckDuckGo are all included as options, but Google has been the default for as long as iPhones have existed.

That may change next year according to a report from The Information (paywall). Apple and Google's search agreement is reportedly set to expire soon, and both Microsoft and Yahoo are already said to be talking with Apple Internet Software and Services SVP Eddy Cue about becoming Safari's default search option. This isn't the first time we've heard about...

Yahoo and Microsoft are courting Apple in hopes of becoming the default search provider for the Safari web browser, a report says. Apple renewed a mapping and search partnership with Google in 2010, but that contract is set to expire next year, which could give other companies an entry point. Both Yahoo and Microsoft executives are said to have approached Eddy Cue -- Apple's senior VP for Internet Software and Services -- about a potential deal.

Mac: Heckler Design Cliff Display Riser + Desk Drawer

Heckler Design’s Cliff ($75) is a display riser and desk drawer designed to hold a Mac monitor on top while storing its cords and various other office supplies underneath. Made of powdercoated steel, Cliff comes in three separate parts. The larger top piece contains three holes on the front, top, and back. All are placed in positions that will hide cords well. The two drawer pieces don’t actually connect to the steel piece with a notch or anything else — they’re completely separate pieces that slide on a desk or table using four feet.

Introducing “Twitter Offers”

Twitter:

Starting today (in the U.S. only), we’re beginning to test a new way for advertisers to connect with consumers on Twitter and convert them to loyal customers in their stores, on their websites and in their apps. This feature, Twitter Offers, enables advertisers to create card-linked promotions and share them directly with Twitter users.

There is zero chance I would ever use this. Anyone else interested in giving your credit card info to Twitter?

How to get 20 percent of everything in the App Store...

Gosh, I love this time of year.

It’s time to be with your family, copious amounts of eating, football and crazy deals on stuff. While everyone’s hunting for that amazing deal on Black Friday (just say no to Thursday shopping though, please) but there’s one deal in particular that I wait for each November: 20 percent off iTunes gift cards.

It should be obvious, but the benefits to iTunes gift cards are that they can be loaded onto your iTunes account and used for everything from apps, to music, to movies, to TV show, and the list goes on.

I spend about $500 per year on iTunes/App Store content, and it rarely goes on sale, so I stock up on enough iTunes gift cards to get me through the year each November during the gift card sale.

How much do you spend annually in iTunes?

Review: Heckler Design @Rest Stand for iPad (2014)

We first saw Heckler Design's @Rest nearly three years ago, when it was a $59 steel iPad stand. @Rest has recently received a redesign — the stand now has a slightly smaller footprint. It also lacks the adhesive pads seen in its prior incarnation, and loses two of the grips used to keep an iPad in place. Additionally, the rubber feet for the bottom of the stand now come already affixed to @Rest, rather than separately. @Rest is also now only $29. The rest of the stand's functionality remains the same. It has two separate viewing angles, 30 and 60 degrees, and an opening on both sides to run a Lightning cable through. @Rest comes in seven different colors, and we received the black-gray version of the stand. We'll keep this review brief, as @Rest is still very similar to its 2011 edition in functionality; refer to our past review for more details.{/exp:char_limit}

Car-hailing apps are on a never-ending quest to recruit more drivers to cultivate a reputation of reliability. Lyft, Uber, and other startups already rely

would have driven for Lyft before.

Driver Destination launched Tuesday as part of

Lyft’s Line carpooling service
. It lets drivers find one or two passengers to pick along their regular routes, like on the way to school or work, as an easy way to make money and reduce the number
of cars on the road. Drivers simply enter their destination and choose to see requests that are only along that route.

The latest numbers from market research company IDC reveal that worldwide tablet growth is expected to have significantly declined in 2014, with just 7.2% year-over-year growth compared to 52.5% in 2013. A contributing factor will likely be the iPad’s first year of decline as the tablet’s market share continues to fall because of a growing number of cheaper alternatives.

IDC finds that the slowdown in sales of both the iPad and the broader tablet market is largely unsurprising, given that tablets have a longer upgrade cycle that is closer to that of computers than smartphones. It was originally expected that tablets would be...

FCC pressures T-Mobile into showing actual speed...

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission this week reached an agreement with T-Mobile to ensure that customers receive proper information about the speed of their wireless internet connection, even if the user has a capped data plan. The carrier has 60 days to implement the changes outlined in the agreement.

The underlying confusion stems from T-Mobile exempting certain speed test services from a customer’s monthly data allotment on capped plans. For instance, a T-Mobile customer with an iPhone 6 could use the popular Ookla SpeedTest app to check the speed of his or her connection without using any data.

The issue is that, since certain speed test services are exempt from monthly data allotments, customers on...

Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Chris Caso raised his 12 month target price for Apple's stock from US$120 up to $135 on Tuesday in response to continued high demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. According to his research, demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is so high that Apple simply can't make phones as fast as consumers buy them.

The Mac Observer Spin: Demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus hasn't dropped off since their introduction in September, and we're just now entering into the busiest shopping season for the year. Apple's real problem this holiday season won't be selling iPhones, it'll be making enough to meet demand.

Apple stock ($AAPL) crossed yet another momentous milestone for its financials, hitting $700 billion market capitalization as the stock ticked over $119.65. At a pre-split price, this tallies $837.13. The stock last peaked in late 2012, when it topped out in the mid $650’s. That’s a $50 billion increase from two weeks ago.

Through 2013, the price tumbled over investor doubts about new product categories and Cook’s leadership. In recent months, though, $AAPL stock has returned and surpassed its 2012 highs. The reduction in shares due to Apple’s buybacks program has been more than offset than share price growth, off the back of the company’s strong earnings and forecasts.

Following news last week that Sony Pictures had decided to drop Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic, sources have told The Wrap that Universal Pictures will now be picking it up. Sony reportedly dropped the movie due to shooting scheduling issues around director Danny Boyle and newly attached star Michael Fassbender, however the picture now appears to be back on track with Universal’s involvement.

First Look: MOS Kick Stand + Tripod Mount

Made from solid steel and billed as "the world's smallest, pocket-size stand and tripod mount" for iOS devices, MOS's new Kick ($35) is a very low-profile option designed primarily for holding iPhones upright for photography purposes. Measuring around 2.8" long by 1.2" wide by 0.35" tall at its largest points, Kick includes a circular screw hole for attachment of a self-supplied tripod, plus a screw-tension adjustable groove that holds your iOS device. The groove is padded with three thin sheets of rubber, and can be tightened around the edge of your device if you want to hold it closer to 90 degrees than on a reclining angle. Kick also has a triangular keychain attachment point and a bottle opener on the sides, both a little on the sharp side for something you might toss into a pocket. While Kick can be used as a stand and does have enough weight and strength to hold a bare iPad Air 2, it's definitely on the fine edge of tablet compatibility, and best suited to smaller devices.{/...

Wristband Heads Off Password Headaches


Has software glut got you down? Do you reuse passwords because creating unique ones for all your online accounts would cause a memory overload? If your answer to those questions is yes, you may be interested in a bit of jewelry called the "Everykey," by a startup with the same name. Everykey is a wristband that, combined with software and the cloud, removes the need to remember the countless log-in credentials we use every day. What's more, it will work with electronic locks, too -- like car doors.

iPhone 6, 6 Plus owners cite easily scratched screens

Just as soon as “Bendgate” seemed to die down, a number of iPhone 6 owners are complaining that their screens are receiving slight surface scratches more readily than the screens of previous models, some alleging flaws in material and design.

According to AppleInsider, multiple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users have taken to Apple’s Support Communities forum to report issues with the handset’s display cover glass, which they claim is more prone to scratching than previous iPhone models.

The thread, now at over 103,000 views and 626 replies, started on Sep. 23 with user jake.underwood26 saying his iPhone 6 Plus exhibited visible scratching near the...

The Aaron Sorkin Steve Jobs biopic is now in Universal’s hands.

And Michael Fassbender is set to star as Steve Jobs.

Per AppleInsider and Variety, Following Sony’s surprise exit from Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s film about Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, Universal Studios has reportedly picked up the project with actor Michael Fassbender tapped to take on the lead role.

As rumored last week when Sony dropped backing for the project, Universal has taken the reins of the film based on Walter Isaacson’s biography “Steve Jobs,” reports Variety. A subsequent report claims Universal paid $30 million for...

This could be the reason you’re not seeing iCloud develop as quickly as it could be.

Per 9to5Mac, The Information has published a report that claims “deep organizational issues” within Apple are holding up iCloud development and complicating products. The cloud-based service, which helps keep data in sync between iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macs, reportedly lacks from a centralized iCloud team at the Cupertino-based company.

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was particularly keen on the idea of iCloud, a platform that he introduced shortly before his death in late 2011. Jobs had a particular interest in keeping photos, one of the most highly shared forms of media, in sync between devices. Yet, over three years...

In case you shook it off as NBD and forgot, Taylor Swift recently released an app called The Taylor Swift Experience to accompany her latest music video. Actually, it’s called "American Express Unstaged: Taylor Swift Ex...", because it’s so ridiculously AmEx-branded that there’s not enough room on the App Store for the full title to be displayed when you search for it.

Here’s my two-second recap of American Express’s Taylor’s app, for those of you who don’t want to bother downloading it:

  • 360-degree views of the rooms of the mansion in which Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” video was filmed
  • Tap on glowing doors to see more rooms
  • Tap on random objects to see them up-close (this is super boring, I promise)
  • Occasionally see Taylor Swift dancing with/throwing things at her guy

Think Retro: When Apple packaging made the hard sell

Today, every one of Apple’s products comes in a clean white box. They’re barely decorated, just a picture of the product that nestles inside and some apologetically light grey text tucked away in a corner detailing specs and mandatory regulatory information. It was not always thus; here’s the box one of my Newton MessagePads came in.

Yes, of course I kept the box.

For a child of the ’80s like me, that style of photography—moody, low-lit, with shafts of light picking out form and texture—is still desperately exciting. And even as a kid, I was excited about the idea of working, of business, of being productive, so the kind of language and lifestyle you see in the pictures was terribly beguiling. (I’d like to blame the ’80s for this too, with its emphasis on self-improvement and free market economies, but maybe I was just a weird kid.)

BlackBerry offering up to $550 for your iPhone...

Itching to “trade up” from your iPhone to a shiny new BlackBerry Passport? Thanks to BlackBerry’s latest promotion, you’ll be able to do just that. The program will let Passport buyers get up to $550 in credit towards the new device when they trade in an iPhone 4s or higher.

In order to get the full amount, you’ll need to trade a brand-new iPhone 6 (or presumably a 6 Plus, though it’s not specifically listed on the chart). The trade-in value for each device is actually much lower (ranging from $90 to $400), but shoppers buying a Passport will get a “top-up” worth an additional $150.

If, for whatever reason, you’d like to take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to wait just a few weeks. The program goes into effect on December 1st and runs through...
