Apple Buys Advanced Database Company FoundationDB

Apple has acquired FoundationDB, a company that developed advanced database technologies designed to crunch large amounts of data more swiftly and efficiently. FoundationDB announced on its website that it would no longer offer its product for download, and Apple issued its standard boilerplate statement it uses to confirm corporate acquisitions without actually confirming them.

Everything Facebook announced at F8

What's in an Apple Name?


Apple has chosen some iconic names in the past, like the "iPod" and "iMac." Apple even managed to take "iPad" -- which was widely panned for evoking a feminine hygiene product -- and transformed it into the popular lexicon of children and Wall Street analysts alike. However, Apple does far more than give big and bold names to products -- it even names key features. For instance, when Apple introduced a sharp new pixel-dense screen, it did something incredibly smart -- it gave the feature a special name -- a "Retina" display.

Podcast: The Apple TV is a rumor to watch

Both Glenn and Susie use their Apple TVs every single day. So we're excited about the prospect of a hardware refresh—which, let's face it, is long overdue, especially if Apple TV is destined to be a HomeKit hub, and to get advanced features like Siri. We've got some ideas for the rumored Apple streaming TV service too.

Later, we turn to the topic of what Nintendo's move into mobile gaming means for Nintendo fans, as well as people who haven't bought a Nintendo product in years. And it seems like iOS 8.3 will be out very soon, so we recap what we're expecting there, and the iOS 8 bugs that still, well, bug us.

Just a day after the last Apple TV channel refresh, CNNgo has added more news content to the set-top box lineup. The new channel appears to require an active cable subscription to view live content, but on demand news content is available without authenticating a subscription. This marks the first time content from CNN has been available on the Apple TV.

CNNgo joins ABC News, Bloomberg TV, CBS News, CNBC, PBS, Sky News, and WSJ Live in providing news content on the Apple TV in the United States.

The channel is organized by the Featured front page, Live TV for cable subscribers, Shows for seeing everything CNN offers, and Must See for viewing news by categories like politics and entertainment as well as top news and many other sections.

Facebook turns Messenger into a shopping platform...

Facebook’s mission of connecting the world is really about connecting everyone to Facebook, even when you’re not actually using the network. At the company’s annual F8 conference for app developers, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced new tools that will bring the apps you use, the news articles you read, and even your clothing purchases directly into Facebook.

Messenger as a platform

A key piece of Facebook’s efforts is Messenger, the stand-alone messaging app that now has more than 600 million monthly active users. The company’s new Messenger Platform lets you install and use third-party apps directly inside Messenger. When a text, photo, video, or sticker just won’t do, you can now bring apps like Giphy, JibJab, Ditty, and Magisto Shot into Messenger to send song clips, GIFs,...

Social Prenup: They get your consent or you take...

Social media and smartphones have made relationships somewhat complex these days. No longer can you just go out on a date with someone; now you'll most likely take a selfie or two of yourself and your squeeze-du-jour, and if things get a little frisky, you might take some photos for "private sharing." Of course, when you break up you just hope that that other person doesn't use those intimate photos and videos for nefarious purposes. Having a little "legal insurance" to protect yourself is the idea behind Social Prenup, a new app that's the brainstorm of a guy named Jason Partovi who enlisted the help of a group of lawyers to make sure the app was legally binding.

The idea is that you make a legally binding agreement with that other party with Social Prenup before you start snapping photos or shooting video. Once the agreement is signed digitally, you or the other...

External Link: Pixar Releases Renderman Free for Non...

Pixar has released its Renderman command-line 3D-rendering tool for free, given that you use it for non-commercial purposes. Note that it’s not a standalone tool, but requires Autodesk’s Maya or The Foundry’s Katana to create the actual 3D models. But this should excite any student of the 3D arts, as Renderman was used to create visual effects for The Lord of the Rings series, the Star Wars prequels, Titanic, and of course, Pixar’s own animated films.

Review: Filters, a new photo editor for iPhone with...

Mike Rundle, an independent designer and developer, is today releasing Filters for iPhone ($0.99), a visual effects photo editor. Rundle’s integrated development workflow, both writing the code and designing the interface, shows through in his work. This is how Filters describes itself.

You don’t take photos with Filters. You transform them. Filters has over 800 ways to transform your photographs including fully adjustable authentic vintage film recreations, hand-painted textures, vibrant colored gel overlays, special multi-effect adjustments (Shine, Luna, Color Boost, Intimidate and Smart Fade) as well as standard image adjustment tools like brightness, contrast, color temperature, exposure and more. All features are included with nothing extra to purchase.

The app features over 800 different image effects presented with some of the best UI design I’ve seen. However there’s no getting away from the fact Filters...

How-To: Decode Apple’s Tech Specs pages before...

Buying a Mac is designed to be easy. Apple has a handful of different models, each generally available in good, better, and best configurations. You’re supposed to start with the specific Mac model that fits your needs, pick a configuration that has the price and features you want, and walk away happy with your purchase. (Better yet, do your research online and save money after ordering from Amazon, or use the product guides off to the bottom right of this page.)

One thing Apple tends to downplay are tech specs — important numbers and acronyms that nonetheless confuse many people. Look carefully on Apple’s web site and you’ll find that there’s a Tech Specs page for every Mac Apple sells; they’re the keys to making an informed Mac purchase that will be right for your current and future needs. My latest How-To is here to walk you through each of Apple’s specs with...

Wearables Wednesday: The watch is the computer with...

It’s Wearables Wednesday here at Apple World Today, the day when I talk about the latest in the wearable technology -- regardless of whether or not it’s from Apple. Wearables are an emerging market, so we’ll look at both what comes out from Apple, what works with our Apple devices, and even keep an eye on the competition.

Today I’m focusing on a rather interesting crowdfunding campaign called Neptune Suite. There’s no compatibility with Apple at all — it’s an Android-based system. So what makes the Neptune Suite worth bringing up on an Apple-centric website?

It’s the design. The Apple Watch is clearly designed as an accessory to an iPhone, with the smartphone providing the bulk of the brains in the duo. Not so with the Neptune Suite; it all...

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...

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.

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...

Apple has reportedly acquired database company FoundationDB, according to a new report from TechCrunch. The report cites sources and notes that the company is no longer offering downloads of its main database software product after posting the following notice to its website:

Obama Lauds STEM Progress at White House Science Fair


President Obama on Monday announced $240 million in new pledges from private businesses, schools and foundations across the country for STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math -- education. The president also announced that a national goal set four years ago to provide 98 percent of Americans with high-speed wireless Internet has been reached ahead of schedule. The occasion for the announcements was a formal gathering at the White House after Obama met with more than 35 teams of student exhibitors at the White House Science Fair.

Nice Canadians

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.

Tip of the Day: Browse your mailbox while composing...

Although the iOS Mail app is great for its general simplicity in letting you view, manage, and send emails, the “single-window” design of iOS itself has traditionally created a workflow limitation that desktop mail users don’t normally encounter — the ability to flip back over to your mailbox to look things up while you’re in the middle of composing an email. Until recently, the only way to deal with this would be to save…

Trade Group Files Lawsuit to Stop FCC Net Neutrality...

USTelecom, the trade group that represents service providers impacted by the Federal Communication Commission's recent changes to preserve Net Neutrality, filed a lawsuit on Monday in hopes of overturning the new rules. The organization claims the FCC doesn't have the legal authority to regulate an open Internet and shouldn't be allowed to impose regulations outside of its purview on Internet service providers.

The Mac Observer Spin: ISPs said they planned to fight the FCC's Net Neutrality plans, so it isn't any surprise at all to see a lawsuit from an organization representing their interests showing up.

Survive: Escape for Atlantis -- iPad and tabletop...

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.

Did I mention the neighboring explorers who are trying to commandeer your boats?

This week we're looking at Survive: Escape From Atlantis from Stronghold Games, comparing the tabletop version and the iPad version. Survive is a family-friendly competitive game for three to four players ages eight and up. It takes about 45 minutes to play.

Survive has been a staple in my home for a couple of years now, and I was eager to try the iOS version when it was released. Spoiler: It's really disappointing. But let's start by focusing on the good. First, Survive for...

Over at 9to5Mac, Mark Gurman has a fascinating article about how Apple is training Apple Store employees to provide personal fashion and styling advice to customers in conjunction with the upcoming launch of the Apple Watch. It’s worth a read for insight into the psychology of fashion sales, and to compare to how you’re treated if you go to check out Apple’s new wearable. The real question is if Apple will require that employees’ monochromatic t-shirts color-coordinate with their Apple Watch bands.

How-To: Rearrange and hide Apple TV channels to...

As the current Apple TV continues to add countless new and sometimes unfamiliar channels to the home screen, the out-of-the-box experience grows increasingly complex for new and existing users. The Apple TV home screen consists of colorful rectangles that represent various content providers for serving up entertainment over the Internet to your television, but actually finding something to watch can prove difficult and intimidating for even a seasoned Apple TV owner. 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.

Apple TV’s user interface is meant to simulate an iPhone or iPad home screen with apps being channels and the theme optimized for the living room, and you can customize the app arrangement on your Apple TV similarly to your other iOS devices. While you cannot...

Using iMovie, Tally 2 and Audubon Birds to count and...

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.
