iPhone 6 Plus and Nexus 6 compared: is Google’s...


TechCrunch

TechCrunch went hands-on with Google’s newest smartphone, the Nexus 6, and took some time to compare it to the iPhone 6 Plus. In the photo above, you’ll see that the two phones share near identical dimensions, though the Nexus still manages to pack a larger 6.22-inch display space into the same body.

The Nexus is actually a bit bigger than it looks in the photo, though the perspective makes it a little hard to tell. When compared spec-for-spec, the Nexus comes in at 6mm taller, 5mm wider, and 3mm thicker than the iPhone. It’s not a huge difference, but the Nexus display is still noticeably bigger than the iPhone 5.5-inch screen. How?

Triple-core iPad Air 2 pegged as 55% faster than any...

Geekbench results for the iMac with Retina 5K Display have hit the web and show that when it comes to 64-bit processing, the 4.0 GHz model of the new all-in-one comes out ahead of the lowest-end (3.7 GHz) Mac Pro. Of course, the rest of the Mac Pro family handily beats the iMac in the same category.

The extra power is almost certainly dedicating to keeping things running smoothly on the impressive new 5K display.

Meanwhile, on the mobile side, new...

Early iPad Air 2 benchmark suggests tri-core CPU,...

The iPad Air 2 in profile. Its new A8X chip is stacking up pretty well.

Andrew Cunningham

Apple's iPad Air 2 contains a new chip called the A8X, an SoC that's faster than the A7 in the original iPad Air or the iPad Mini 2 and 3 and the A8 in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple would only say that the chip's CPU is about 40 percent faster than the A7 and that it has a GPU that's 2.5 times faster.

We haven't gotten our hands on an iPad Air 2 review unit yet, so we haven't been able to test out these claims. A test from Primate Labs' Geekbench Results Browser sheds an interesting light on the subject, though: the result in question shows a three-core processor with 2GB of RAM, double the memory of any previous iOS device. Assuming the scores are accurate, the A8X could outdo the A7 in some tasks by as much as 66 percent.

Rumor: A8X processors allegedly feature three cores...

While Apple has yet to reveal the exact specifications of its A8X processor, it seems to feature some sexy tech traits. Per AppleInsider and Gizmobic, a new benchmark purports to show the horsepower of the CPU, revealing a triple-core processor with 2 gigabytes of RAM.

The purported details on the A8X chip claimed to show a new “iPad5,4″ model. Based on Apple’s IPSW files available to developers, that model would be a LTE-capable iPad Air 2.

A separate test focused on RAM speed also appears to show that the iPad Air 2 has a full 2 gigabytes of RAM. In contrast, the A8 CPU found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is a dual-core processor with 1 gigabyte of RAM.

The benchmarks published represent an out-of-date testing tool...

Definitive guide to beer glasses

A nicely crafted beer is a thing of beauty, but if you’re pouring it into just any old grimy pint glass, you’re not letting that brew reach its true potential. The right glass is key to getting every last boozy drop of pleasure.​

A lot of people don’t realize that the shape of the glass you drink your beer out of can affect the way it tastes. In general, beer glasses are designed to enhance the kinds of beers inside. Always drives me nuts when I go to a bar and ask for a specialized beer and it comes in the “wrong” glass.

Notes on Xsan4 By wrstuden

Notes on Xsan 4
As others have noted, Xsan 4's administration model is notably different from the model in all previous versions of Xsan. Here are some notes I have on the changes.

We have coined a new term, "Activation." "Upgrade" and "Migration" are two ways of taking the base operating system and configuration from a previous OS to Yosemite. "Promotion" is the act of updating Server.app to Server 4.0. We coined a corresponding term, "Activation," to describe taking an Xsan 3 or 2 configuration and moving it into Xsan 4. SAN Activation happens after Upgrade or Migration and also after Server Promotion. Activation happens first on the previous Xsan Primary MDC, and then happens on the other MDCs.

Xsan 4 no longer directly manages clients. We ran into too many issues where SAN operations would fail because one client was off-line. To address this, Xsan 4 uses ldap to store the SAN configuration. Now instead of having Xsan Admin update (push) the configuration...

In the September quarter, Apple sold 12.3M iPads, versus 14.1M in the year ago quarter. While lower than last year, iPad sales were slightly above Wall Street’s expectations.

A few months back, we weighed the pros and cons of shrinking Apple's Mac Mini. Shrinking the computer has the obvious benefits of making it smaller and thus easier to fit in more places, but we feared it would come at the cost of upgradeability and reparability. A smaller Mini would need to solder more parts to the motherboard to save space, and it could give up niceties like the second 2.5-inch drive bay that make it a nice mini-server.

When Apple updated the Mini for the first time in two...

New Mac mini restricts RAM and storage upgrades, but...

Mac mini fans recently rejoiced after Apple updated the storied compact Mac after two years without a major overhaul. But for DIY types, the new Mac mini is a mixed bag offering both heartache and promise.

The teardown experts over at iFixit recently took apart the base model 2014 Mac Mini with a 500GB hard drive and 1.4GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 processor. The DIY site found that upgrading the Mac mini’s RAM is now pretty much impossible, but adding an internal SSD at a later date just might be doable.

iFixit tears down late-2014 Mac mini, offers...

The grand masters of the hardware teardown have cracked open Apple’s new Mac mini and found both positive negative things about it.

Per 9to5Mac, the mighty iFixit has completed a teardown of the new Mac mini and confirmed something that’s been a point of contention: the RAM is soldered into the logic board and can’t be upgraded, so you’ll have to pay Apple’s price when you initially purchase the machine.

Getting access to the inside of the new Mac mini is more difficult than it used to be …

The twist-off bottom cover of the previous model is gone, with a new plastic cap needing to be levered off. Beneath this is a plate with three tamper-proof screws.

iFixit identified these as TR6 Torx, and said it was the first time it had ever seen these in use. The company’s Torx drivers only...

Apple may, for a second time, have to adjust the ratios of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus production to more equally favor the Plus, sources tell Digitimes. Earlier this month the company is said to have noticed that global demand for the Plus was stronger than expected, and adjusted accordingly. After last weekend's launch in China, though, the company is said to have discovered strong demand there too. Chinese wanting a regular iPhone 6 can reportedly buy one without much trouble, but face a long wait if they opt for the bigger phone....

How to Enable Apple’s SMS Relay on your Mac or iPad

When Apple announced iOS 8 back at WWDC one feature was met with great applause: SMS Relay. This allows users to send and receive not only iMessages from their Macs but also regular Text Messages (i.e. the "green bubble" messages we send to our Android-using friends). When iOS 8 was released and the feature wasn't there, we all waited for Yosemite. When Yosemite came out we realized we needed to wait for iOS 8.1. Now that you have those two installed (you must for this to work), there are just a few more steps to follow, but they're pretty simple.

Chinese carrier offers pocket upgrades to iPhone 6...

Dutch carrier KPN might have done it first as a publicity stunt, but Chinese carrier Unicom is seemingly offering pocket enlargements as a serious but publicity focussed service for iPhone 6 Plus buyers, reports Ubergizmo.

It is offering in-house pocket enlargement to customers who pick up Apple’s largest iPhone ever. China Unicom has actually hired a group of tailors to provide this service at many of its stores across the country.

If you own a 6 Plus, how are you finding its pocketability? And if you’d been offered a pocket upgrade when you collected it, would you have taken advantage? Let us know in comments.

Flash uses a common coin cell battery that Misfit claims will last up to six months. Simplicity is the name of Flash’s game: upon pressing the disc once, a ring of 12 lights will briefly show a user how much…

Kickstarter Puts Kibosh on Tor-Based Router Funding


Kickstarter on Friday suspended a crowdfunding campaign for Anonabox, a portable networking device designed specifically to run Tor. The campaign for the privacy-minded router, which launched earlier last week, was wildly successful. In just a few days, it reportedly garnered more than $600,000 in pledged funds from thousands of backers. The Kickstarter goal for the $45 device was just $7,500. By Thursday, however, an acrimonious debate had arisen over some of the project creators' claims.

While yesterday’s iPad numbers don’t look great – down 12.5% year-on-year, the third successive quarter in which sales have fallen – Tim Cook remains upbeat about the product, stating that it “has a great future” and that its long-term prospects are more important than “individual 90-day clicks.”

Quartz‘s Dan Frommer pulled together some of the things Cook has to say about the device, and while you’d clearly expect Apple’s CEO to put the best possible spin on things, he makes some reasonable arguments … 

First, argued Cook, the numbers are not as bad as they seem. The drop over the full 12-month period,...

Apple not only announced record profits for Q4 results and smashed through its own revenue guidance, but out-performed even the most bullish of analyst estimates with earnings of $42.123B. The highest analyst estimate in yesterday’s Fortune roundup was for $41.8B.

The consensus analyst expectation for earnings per share was $1.32, against the actual 20% climb to $1.42, aided by Apple’s stock buyback program, which now totals $68B of the $90B target announced by Apple … 

iPhone sales were 39.272M against analyst consensus of 37.89m, Mac 5.52M against estimates of 4.83M and iPod 2.62M versus expectations of 2.32M....

Apps to discover and learn more about classical music

Classical music is proving to withstand the tests of time, so you might be wondering how an app can help get you more in touch with this rich, inspiring art form. Sure, you may already consider yourself a classical music buff, but there’s always more you can learn about how orchestras work, or how certain classical works are constructed. Or perhaps you enjoy classical music and want to immerse yourself into the genre some more, but you don’t know where to start. Maybe you have kids, and you want to introduce them to classical music in a fun way.

I looked at a number of apps—and some books—that can help you with any of those scenarios. Whether you’re a novice to the genre, or a seasoned musician, you’ll find something that will help you discover and learn more about great music.
