Calculate Linux Provides Consistency by Design


Calculate Linux 14 is a distribution designed with home and SMB users in mind. It is optimized for rapid deployment in corporate environments as well. Calculate gives users something no other Linux distro makes possible. The Xfce desktop session is customized to imitate the look of the KDE desktop environment. This design approach goes a long way toward making Calculate Linux a one-distro-fits-all solution. Individual users or entire departments can fine-tune user preferences and features without changing the common appearance or performance.

How Sony, Intel, and Unix Made Apple's Mac a PC...

smaxp writes In 2007, Sony's supply chain lessons, the network effect from the shift to Intel architecture, and a better OS X for developers combined to renew the Mac's growth. The network effects of the Microsoft Wintel ecosystem that Rappaport explained 20 years ago in the Harvard Business Review are no longer a big advantage. By turning itself into a premium PC company with a proprietary OS, Apple has taken the best of PC ecosystem, but avoided taking on the disadvantages.

AAPL hits all-time high, may close week at record...

Apple's stock on Thursday hit a new all-time closing high, reaching $104.83 per share at the closing bell. While many are waiting to see if the company can close the week at that level or higher, others -- including activist investor Carl Icahn and CEO Tim Cook -- believe the stock remains undervalued. AAPL also set a new intra-day high of $105.05 during trading, and is up slightly from its close at this writing in after-hours trading. Stronger-than-expected iPhone numbers and the coming holiday season has helped fuel the rise....

Microsoft Smart Watch Sneak Peek

Apple has announced a smartwatch we'll get to see next year. Google has released Android Wear to create Android powered smartwatches, and Samsung has one too. When you think of big tech companies, the only one left who hasn't gotten in on the action is Microsoft. Well Owen Williams took a crack at designing it, and I think he got pretty close to what Redmond would theoretically release. I think it'd be four quadrants of color like a Windows logo, but otherwise I think he nailed it. I think it would be called the Microsoft Windows Mobile Wearable Edition For Wrists (since Microsoft is just at good at naming as numbering). See it below:

Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs because the Steve...

It’s confirmed: Christian Bale, who transformed into a remarkably entertaining comb-over enthusiast in American Hustle, will play Steve Jobs in the upcoming bio-pic based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography, aptly titled Steve Jobs. The news comes directly from Aaron Sorkin, who’s writing the screenplay for the new movie.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin told Bloomberg Television. “He didn’t have to audition.”

And thus another Steve Jobs movie has a leading man. Noah Wyle did a fine job with Jobs in Pirates of Silicon Valley in 1999. Then Ashton Kutcher kutchered up Jobs in last year’s ...

Batman will be playing the part of Steve Jobs.

And he didn’t even have to audition.

Per Bloomberg, actor Christian Bale didn’t have to audition for the role of Steve Jobs in the coming biopic of the Apple Inc. co-founder, according to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin told Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang on a coming edition of “Studio 1.0.” “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”

Sorkin, whose screenplay for “The Social Network” won an Academy Award, is working on an adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography “Steve Jobs” for Sony Corp. The film will begin shooting in the next couple of months, Sorkin said.

The writer is known for his fast-paced dialogue in shows such as TV’s “The West Wing” and “The...

Ello makes its ad-free promise a legal one, too

It’s one thing to say your social network will never be like Facebook, it’s another to enshrine that promise in legal documents. Ello, a social site whose
claim to fame is an anti-ad manifesto, is doing just that by filing to become a public benefit corporation.

A benefit corporation is a company that chooses to be socially conscious of how its decisions affect not just shareholders or investors, but also its
customers, employees, and the environment. Ello won’t get any tax benefits for being a do-good social network, but the charter the company filed prevents
current and future investors and owners from ever profiting from ads or user data.

Apple 1 Sells At Auction For $905,000

Dave Knott writes One of the few remaining examples of Apple Inc's first pre-assembled computer, the Apple 1, sold for $905,000 at an auction in New York on Wednesday. The final price outstrips expectations, as auction house Bonhams had said it expected to sell the machine, which was working as of September, for between $300,000 and $500,000. The buyer was The Henry Ford organization, which plans to display the computer in its museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Only 63 surviving authentic Apple 1's were listed in an Apple 1 Registry as of January out of the 200 that were built. The auctioned computer is thought to be one of the first batch of 50 Apple-1 machines assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Job's family garage in Los Altos, California in the summer of 1976. It is also believed to be one of only 15 that still have functioning motherboards. That's a bit more beastly than the original price.

Apple Wins GPNE Patent Lawsuit, Calls Company a...

GPNE lost its patent infringement lawsuit against Apple on Wednesday,after which the iPhone and iPad maker promptly called the company a patent troll - a term it was barred from using during the trial. GPNE accused Apple of designing its mobile devices around its years-old pager patent and asked the court to bar the use of "patent troll" in the proceedings.

The Mac Observer Spin: The only win GPNE got out of this trial was keeping Apple from calling it a patent troll in court. Turns out that was a pretty short lived victory.

Apple Is Confusing Tablet Leadership With Awesomeness


The new super thin iPad Air 2 is starting to get tepid reviews, most of which begrudgingly call it the "best tablet" in the market, while admitting it's boring. Instead of talking up all the great things about how it makes their lives better or fun, the focus is starting to turn to the glaringly obvious annoyances about what it doesn't do well at all. These criticisms aren't coming mainly from Apple haters -- they're coming from Apple's friends. "The best tablet needs to work harder," said one. "Is 'better' enough?" asked another.

The Mac Observer Spin: Heatbleed, Shellshock, and Poodle are all big security risks in SSL, so its good to see Apple and other companies actively moving away from supporting the older security protocol in favor of TLS.

Apple announces end to SSL 3.0 support on October...

Sometimes you’ve got to drop back and punt.

Per the Apple developer web site and AppleInsider, Apple announced on Wednesday that it will be removing support for the SSL 3.0 protocol on its Apple Push Notification server.

Apple will be switching off SSL 3.0 support in favor of the more secure transport layer security (TSL) protocol on Wednesday, Oct. 29, noting developers will have to build in support by that time to ensure uninterrupted push notification service continues.

Apps currently using both SSL 3.0 and TSL will not be affected by the change, but those using just SSL 3.0 will need to be updated.

The cool cats at iFixit have torn down the iPad 2 Air and found some interesting stuff inside.

Per iFixit and AppleInsider, the new tablet comes with a 9.7-inch laminated touch panel, A8X SoC, 8MP rear-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Touch ID fingerprint reader. The shell was also redesigned, seeing the deletion of the orientation lock/mute button and minor aesthetic modifications to the speaker grille and volume control buttons.

The teardown finally put a number on battery capacity, with the Air 2 sporting a 27.62 watt hour, 7,340mAh dual-cell unit, down from last year’s 32.9 watt-hour configuration. According to Apple, that will get you about 10 hours of continuous use per charge, or 9 hours on the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

iPhone assembler Foxconn is apparently hoping to move beyond its relatively low-margin work into more profitable high-end component manufacturing in order to take a bigger slice of revenue from Apple, reports the WSJ.

Apple Inc.’s major assembler Foxconn is in preliminary discussions with a provincial government in northern China for an investment in a new factory that would make high-end screens for iPhones and other mobile devices, people familiar with the talks say.

Foxconn already manufactures some iPhone components, but currently only low-margin ones like metal casings and cables … ...

Greater China includes both Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Review: Pixelmator for iPad out now, a desktop-class...

Announced during Apple’s October event, Pixelmator for iPad ($4.99) is an important stepping stone in the iPad’s history. The Mac app is regularly featured by Apple as an exemplar app in the Mac App Store and it is clear Apple wants to use Pixelmator as a ‘trophy’ app in the same way. No doubt this app (aside from games) is one of a handful that will directly benefit from the A8X performance gains.

I tested the app on an iPad Air, although the app technically supports all the way back to iPad 3, even some operations on the Air felt slow. I would be a bit cautious if you intend to install it on one of Apple’s older tablets.

As a 1.0 release, the depth and breadth of this app is staggering. There are a myriad of effects, painting brushes, color adjustments and other features to help edit and create images. The vast majority of the Mac app’s...

Cashiers don't understand Apple Pay and it...

Apple Pay is so easy to use, it’s almost not worth writing about. It’s laughably fast and stupidly simple. So simple it’s confusing the heck out of clerks and cashiers nationwide.

Here’s how it works: You walk up to the kind of payment terminal where you would normally swipe your credit or debit card. You notice a little icon that looks like a sideways Wi-Fi symbol—that means you can also use contactless payments, like those tap-and-go Mastercards that no one uses. That’s your clue.

So instead of swiping a card, you hold your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus near the terminal, your default Apple Pay card pops up on the screen, you smugly put your thumb on the Touch ID button, and boom, transaction completed. It took me approximately 17 times longer to type this than it does to actually make a payment.
