Tests confirm 2015 MacBook Air can support 60Hz 4K...

Your brand new 2015 MacBook Air WILL be able to officially support external monitors with resolutions up to 2,560-pixels-by-1,600-pixels, tests have shown that the slim portable can actually drive an external 4K display at a full 60Hz.

The cool cats over at Ars Technica tested the early 2015 MacBook Air with a Dell P2415Q 24-inch 4K display and found that the Air correctly identified the attached monitor at 4K resolution, switching the user interface into HiDPI mode.

Subsequent refresh rate tests confirmed that it was running at 60Hz, and the publication said that interface components were “more than smooth enough for desktop use.” Problems cropped up when...

Belgian IT firm lets you preview Apple Watch through...

This might be ridiculous.

Or it could be amazing.

A Belgian IT company called Underside is allowing you to try on the Apple Watch via augmented reality. Simply print a special wristband, attach it to your wrist like a watch, then point your phone at the paper watch, and through the magic of augmented reality, becomes an Apple Watch.

Tapping on the screen lets you cycle through different watch and band combinations.

You can get the app on the Underside web site.

Step Aside Calendar, Fantastical 2 for the Mac is...

When Fantastical was first released it brought with it a fresh take on the Mac's Calendar thanks to its easy to use drop down menu view and natural language event entry system. Where the original made a great addition to Apple's Calendar apps, Fantastical 2 is an excellent replacement and shows just how much power you can pack into a minimalist interface. Is Fantastical 2 right for you? Read on to find out.

Fantastical 2 for Mac is a full calendar replacement

Fantastical 2 for Mac (currently 10 dollars off at $39.99) is now available, and it embraces OS X Yosemite with a nice, warm hug. The software, which I first reviewed way back in 2011, has grown quite a bit in the last four years. Fantastical 2 includes a full calendar window, a detachable menu bar calendar, a Today widget for Notification Center and so much more. Fantastical has received steady attention and development, and it shows. Here's my look at this great calendar app for Mac.

Looks

Old (Left) and new (right). Larger month view, bolder colors, flat as a pancake

Right away, you'll notice the bold new color scheme. Its predecessor's dark background is gone, and the software's trademark red is nice and bright. Fantastical 2 has adopted Yosemite's "flat" aesthetic, giving it a modern, up...

Developers and the Fear of Apple

An anonymous reader writes: UI designer Eli Schiff has posted an article about the "climate of fear" surrounding Apple in the software development community. He points out how developers who express criticism in an informal setting often recant when their words are being recorded, and how even moderate public criticism is often prefaced by flattery and endorsements. Beyond that, the industry has learned that they can't rely on Apple's walled garden to make a profit. The opaque app review process, the race to the bottom on pricing, and Apple's resistance to curation of the App Store are driving "independent app developers into larger organizations and venture-backed startups." Apple is also known to cut contact with developers if they release for Android first. The "climate of fear" even affects journalists, who face not only stonewalling from Apple after negative reporting, but also a brigade of Apple fans and even other journalists trying to paint them as anti-Apple.

Alternative energy!

We’ve got two iPhone accessories this week that power up the phone through alternative means—one through hand-cranking, the other through solar. Also: A bunch of new Apple Watch gadgets to enjoy.

Calypso Crystal

The $69 CalypsoPad is a kind of slightly plush viewing stand for your iPhone 6; it’s made of soft Italian leather and embedded with magnets to hold your phone in place at a gentle viewing angle—and it also holds your charging cord in place for easy access to power.

Over-the-Air Tinkering Keeps Tesla's Model S New


Tesla CEO Elon Musk last week said that the company's line of high-end electric cars will get some autonomous driving capabilities via an over-the-air software update this summer. The new features will let drivers give their vehicles control of certain tasks on major roads, possibly even highways. Other software updates for the Tesla S, including Range Assurance, Trip Planner and new safety functionality, already are rolling out. "Tesla is one of the only automotive OEMs that can offer this sort of update," said IHS Technology's Egil Juliussen.

AAA road safety campaign shows real videos of...

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has put online video clips from real car crashes caused by 16-19 year old drivers using smartphones while driving. The videos, which show both the view through the windscreen and a view of the driver, are designed to make real the dangers of distracted driving.

None of the crashes featured in the above clip feature injuries, but almost 3,000 people a year are killed in crashes involving drivers in this age-range, the majority of them caused by the driver being “inattentive or engaged in some other non-driving-related activity.” A further 383,000 people a year are injured.

Researchers at the University of Iowa examined carcam footage from 1,691 crashes involving drivers aged 16-19 to determine the cause. Distracted driving was found to be the cause in 58% of crashes, with 12% of them due to using a phone while driving. For crashes involving the car leaving...

Manage Mount Volumes in Xsan 4

Forums: Troubleshooting

Hello everybody.
I have a question, maybe it's simple.

I actually have an Xsan 4 with a first Volume 1 created and regularly mounted on all my 8x clients connected.

Now i have to add a second volume with a new array, but some clients will have to mount only the first, some clients only the second, and some clients both volumes.

Now that the Xsan Admin is gone, how can i manage the mount of multiple volumes using the new profiler system?

Thank you very much for your time

We experience Canadian nice as soon as we reach customs. The US border guards are gruff and all business. The Canadians, by contrast, are unfailingly polite, even as they grill us about the number of wine bottles we’re bringing into the country. One year, we had failed to notice that our 9-year-old daughter’s passport had expired. They, nicely, let us enter anyway. The niceness continues for our entire trip, as we encounter nice waiters, nice hotel clerks, nice strangers.

We are generally nice people.

You're on an island that's sinking beneath your feet. Jungle, stone and sand are being consumed by the hungry ocean. Only a few rowboats stand between you and freedom on stable, neighboring islands. Rowboats and sharks. And whales. And giant sea serpents.

Many of the channels require authenticating an active cable or satellite subscription to unlock full access while others are interest-specific likes sports or culture.

Every year since 1998, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society have hosted the Great Backyard Bird Count. The four-day event encourages bird watchers around the world to count and identify the birds they see. The crowd-sourced data is compiled and used to examine the distribution and abundance of birds worldwide. We recently set up a bird feeder in our yard and decided to participate in the annual event this year as part of our homeschool activities.

Capturing the birds using the iPhone Camera app

While my older kids ventured out into the cold winter woods to spy the rare birds, my younger set preferred to watch the bird feeder and count from the comfort of our kitchen. We needed to count all the birds we saw for 15 minutes, which posed a challenge as our birdfeeder is quite busy, even during the winter. As a result, we had to introduce some technology into the process to assist in the counting...

Instagram and an upset indie dev

Today, Instagram announced an app called Layout from Instagram. It’s described as “a new app that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image.” In 2012, I released an Apple Editors’ Choice app called Layout that lets you combine multiple photos into a single image. It was even named an App Store Best of 2012 app. Is it just me, or does it seem insincere for Instagram to release a similar app with the exact same name only differentiated by the inclusion of their company name? Do you think they’d be okay with me releasing an app called “Instagram from Juicy Bits?” Neither do I.

This happens way too often, but I don’t think there is a way to stop it.

Our favorite OS X launcher – Alfred

The Sweet Setup:

Being the new kid on the block can have its advantages, but only if you know how to leverage them properly. Our favorite — Alfred — is able to do just that when compared to LaunchBar, Quicksilver, and even Spotlight.

What Alfred does best is incorporate different features from its competitors and implement them in a distinctive, easy, and understandable way — all while offering more power for advanced users to take things further.

I’ve used Alfred for years and agree with this review. Even in its free version, it’s a great launcher but the Powerpack is well worth the price for power users.

Apple Pay stickers, decals now available to merchants

Apple on Monday updated a section of its Apple Pay website, adding a new feature that allows businesses to order Apple Pay decals for merchants.

Clicking the link to order decals takes merchants to a new Apple Pay Supplies website where they can sign up to receive an Apple Pay kit that contains window and register decals. In the kit, there are glass decals in two sizes, register decals in two sizes, and an application tool. Businesses can order up to five kits using the online tool, but larger decal orders require placing a phone call to Apple.

Kits are available at no cost after a company, name, email address, and shipping address are entered.

Rumor: Apple Watch to see initial supply constraints...

The Apple Watch may see supply constraints before launch, but Apple should be prepared for them.

This is what one source has indicated, as Apple has seen similar issues. When the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debuted last year, Apple struggled to keep up with consumer demand for months.

That may happen again with the Apple Watch. One person familiar with Apple’s internal logistics shared this week that with all of the new technology introduced in the Apple Watch, the company has faced production issues with the wrist-worn device “at every stage of the development.”

This source said that while there may be some yield issues...

Several years after Steve Jobs’ untimely death, journalists — particularly ones who previously interviewed or covered Jobs — are still combing their archives for underreported facts or quotes that might justify new books on Apple’s enigmatic CEO. Naturally, the overlap with earlier works is significant, as new authors repeatedly acknowledge leaning on Michael Moritz’s (Return to) The Little Kingdom and Owen Linzmayer’s Apple Confidential 2.0, among many others. But there’s still an opportunity to bring new details to light, which is why Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli’s Becoming Steve Jobs (...

How a lousy football game birthed a bastard and led...

.

Ken Baumgartner – 6’1”, 205 pounds, with a penchant for doling out punishment – was not the kind of guy you wanted to see angry. Baumgartner was a left wing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. More specifically, he was their enforcer; a man paid literally to inflict pain on opponents. But in 1992, the target of his aggression was not another player; nor was it a coach or referee. It was a videogame producer at Electronic Arts named Michael Brook.

‘Hi, I’m Ken Baumgartner,’ he said flatly by way of introduction. As a lifelong hockey fan, Brook already knew who he was, and indicated as much with a tiny flinch of a smile. Despite the recognition, the thuggish enforcer felt compelled to further introduce himself:

‘I’m the guy you gave a zero rating to for Intelligence.’

External Link: Connecting a 1986 Mac Plus to the Web

The Mac Plus debuted years before the World Wide Web, but that didn’t stop Jeff Keacher from figuring out how to get his 1986 model online. Using MacTCP, MacWeb, a Raspberry Pi single-board computer, and a custom proxy, Keacher was able to connect his Mac Plus to the modern Web. It works about as well as you might expect — with the Mac Plus taking minutes to load a Web page — but it goes to show that anything is possible.

Under Italian law, finalizing the probe lets prosecutors ask a judge to hear the case at trial. Prosecutors claim Apple dodged its full tax bill from 2008-2013 by having its profits in Italy booked by Irish subsidiary Apple Sales International, reducing its taxable income base.

Why I am buying the Apple Watch before I even see it

People are eyeing the Apple Watch for a variety of reasons. Its luxury appeal, its newness, and its utility as a smartwatch and fitness tracker are among the selling points of the device. My interest in the Watch does include its usefulness as a smartwatch and fitness tracker, but there are three other reasons that compel me to pick one up on day one.

Social Acceptability

The first reason is social in nature. I spend a fair amount of time in the company of other people where it is awkward to pull out my phone. I volunteer at a nature preserve where I help with summer running events and provide gear in the winter to individuals and families who wish to ski on the premises. I hate missing an important email when I am volunteering, but feel it is rude always to pull out my phone. This same uncomfortable situation arises in other social situations, such as dinner dates or meetings,...

Analyst: AAPL on Track to Hit $1 Trillion Market Cap

Cantor Fiztgerald analyst Brian White thinks Apple's future is so bright that he raised his 12-month target price for the company's stock from US$160 up to $180, which would put its market cap up over $1 trillion. He said the launch of Apple Watch, iPhone growth in China, and the iPhone and iPad maker's potential with its rumored electric car will all help to push the stock value higher.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple seems to be the darling of Wall Street and most analysts are very optimistic about the company's future. Topping the trillion dollar market cap mark would be huge for Apple.

One of the great things about technology is the way it has democratized the publishing world. Today, anyone can publish an ebook on iBooks and Amazon, whether as a freebie or a commercial book.

Creating an ebook isn’t difficult. If you’ve written your book in Pages, you can export to EPUB–the format needed for iBooks–direct from the app. There is also the excellent Calibre app (featured in our How-to guide), which will convert just about any file format to any type of ebook.

But as I found out when I came to create my own ebook, generating an ebook that looks attractive on all of the different devices available is a rather tougher challenge. That’s the job the Mac app Vellum claims to do, so I put it to...

Apple has in the past not looked kindly on companies offering MagSafe adapters for their products, but with a magnetic connection for audio rather than power, and Apple starting to move from MagSafe to USB-C, perhaps a new Kickstarter campaign might make it.

Magzet is a two-part magnetic kit for 3.5mm audio connections. One half is designed to remain in the audio socket (and cleverly manages to avoid cutting sound to the speaker when there’s nothing connected to it), the other attaches to your headphone jack. Once in place, it breaks away cleanly like MagSafe if you walk away from the device while still wearing your headphones.

Becoming Steve Jobs co-authors Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli told the NY Times that the public image of Steve Jobs got stuck in the pre-NeXT days, when he was younger and more hot-headed, because he chose to limit media contact after rejoining Apple.

I felt that the early stereotype of him as half-genius, half-jerk from birth had stuck around — it was set during his early years at Apple, and it had lasting power mainly because after 1987 he restricted press coverage.

There was, say the pair, nothing out there to portray the ways in which the post-NeXT Steve–Steve 2.0–had matured, echoing comments by another...

AUSTIN—Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine hasn’t even been widely released yet, and it’s already stirring the controversy pot. Early reviews have called it cynical (and similar in tone to Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs), Eddy Cue spoke out against this “mean spirited” film on Twitter, and rumors of Apple employees walking out of the theater have been circulating since the film’s premier earlier in March.

But in quiet a meet-and-greet with the press the day after the film’s first screening at the South by Southwest Film festival, director Alex Gibney said he didn’t set out to make a negative film—he just wanted to get a better understanding of the world’s fascination with this man.
