Gadget Ogling: A Microsoft Marvel, an Eensy Keyboard...


Microsoft had a major surprise up its sleeve for those awaiting details about the Windows 10 launch: its holographic headset, HoloLens. Billed as a new way to interact with technology and the world around us at once, it overlays holograms onto what wearers see in front of them. They might, for instance, play a version of Minecraft that's constructed across a kitchen table and chairs, or have a Skype conversation with a screen seemingly hovering in front of them as they stroll across the floor. It is blisteringly impressive.

Digital music: can you hear above 16-bit/44.1kHz?

MacObserver:

Right now…companies like Neil Young’s Pono are telling people that audio files encoded at a bit-depth of 24-bits or a sample rate of 192kHz sound better than the 16-bit, 44.1kHz versions of the same audio on playback.

This difference between 16-bit/44.1kHz audio and anything greater than that has been tested (a lot… in double-blind tests) and we have yet to find any human that can reliably notice that difference.

Now just sit back and wait for the audio geeks to refute this article.

Leatherman Wins At Watchbands with Leatherman Tread

There has been a lot of talk lately about watches and watchbands now that we know Apple is headed into that market. Even before Apple launches it's offering, Leatherman has already conquered the watchband with the Leatherman Tread. And if you still aren't convinced you need to wear a watch, that's ok. First and foremost this is a bracelet, and if you want to include a watch, you can. Each link is an individual tool such as a hex drive, screwdriver, box wrench, and of course, the bottle opener (built into the clasp). It starts shipping this summer, with the timepiece coming in the fall. Since the links are user adjustable, it's possible to pop off the cutting hook and hopefully you can now, at long last, get through TSA with a Leatherman.

Zenwalk Linux - A Walk on the Quirky Side


The developmental path and sketchy developer website may cast an unfavorable impression about Zenwalk's trustworthiness as a serious computing platform. The ho-hum impression when first running the live edition does little to encourage users to take this Linux OS for a stroll. Zenwalk Linux becomes a bit more impressive once you get beyond the awkward first-time experience, but it comes with a number of problems that might be prohibitive for a new user looking for an all-purpose Linux OS.

What is the best hard drive?

Backblaze:

It was one year ago that I first blogged about the failure rates of specific models of hard drives, so now is a good time for an update.

At Backblaze, as of December 31, 2014, we had 41,213 disk drives spinning in our data center, storing all of the data for our unlimited backup service. That is up from 27,134 at the end of 2013. This year, most of the new drives are 4 TB drives, and a few are the new 6 TB drives.

Wow. That does not look good for Seagate.

Travel Back to 2004 and Meet the ‘Palette Pad’

Yesterday I wrote up the Mountie, a device that clips your smaller mobile display to the side of your "main" display, either a MacBook Pro or an iMac. It turns out this idea is a long time coming. Our own Adam Christianson had a conversation in 2004 about the (then) current Apple Studio Display and how so much space was used in programs like Photoshop by palettes and other panels that took up a lot of space. Adam was pondering a smaller screen that could work in conjunction with the main display, maximizing the space available for work on the larger screen. He talked this over with Jeff Rutan who then created a concept of what this "Palette Pad" might look like. At the time things like power and attaching to displays and video sync were tough nuts to crack, so the concept sort of died until 2010 with the release of Air Display which brought it closer. Now that the Mountie exists, teaming it up with Air Display might actually make Adam's vision a reality.

TSA: 2,212 firearms found in carryon luggage last...

TSA:

2,212 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags at checkpoints across the country, averaging more than six firearms per day. Of those, 2,212 (83 percent) were loaded. Firearms were intercepted at a total of 224 airports; 19 more airports than last year.

There was a 22 percent increase in firearm discoveries from last year’s total of 1,813.

The TSA has often been rightly derided as “security theater” but this catalog of various weapons confiscated from traveler’s carry on luggage is a little bit terrifying. And I will likely read too much into the fact that, out of the top ten airports for gun catches, eight of them were in the South.

Review: Lenmar Maven Battery Case for iPhone 6

Lenmar's Maven ($100) for iPhone 6 packs a 3000 mAh battery into a matte two-piece hard case. The iPhone 6 is installed and removed through a top slider piece. Maven features a forward-facing speaker port, and when the case is turned on, it enables users to sync and charge the iPhone. There's no button coverage on Maven, but there is a slight lip for screen protection. The camera hole is also probably slightly larger than it needs to be. Lenmar has printed the charging directions on the inside of the case, which is a thoughtful touch. {/exp:char_limit}

An interesting piece over on The Verge discusses one of the iPhone’s chief strengths: being able to take a good picture with almost no fiddling with the controls and being able to take a clear, sharp picture on the very first attempt. This contrasts with the author’s description of his “routine of setting proper focus and steadying myself” and his realization of gadget envy in this regard.

The author then goes on to state that “I saw more iPhones in the hands of CES attendees than I did Android phones across the countless exhibitor booths. From the biggest keynote event to the smallest stall on the show floor, everything was being documented with Apple’s latest smartphone, and it all looked so irritatingly easy.

Terrible news for anyone who has ever been bored on an airplane: the company behind SkyMall, that in-flight catalog you disdainfully flip through after you’ve suffered through all the available episodes of The Big Bang Theory, has announced its inevitable bankruptcy filing.

Why do we say “inevitable”? Because SkyMall is packed full of actually useless garbage that no human being would conceivably buy, even in a late-capitalist boom cycle. Thankfully, a legion of loyal Internet fans has done the noble work of archiving these inexplicable items:

This free app is for two kinds of people: Blind folks, and sighted folks who want to help them. If a blind person needs help identifying something—say, the “sell by” date on a carton of milk—they can start up a live audio-visual connection and aim the iPhone’s camera at the object they need help with. Sighted folks—volunteers who download the app—will be alerted that help is needed, open Be My Eyes on their iPhone, and see what the camera’s aimed at. Then they can answer the blind person’s question. It's a pretty incredible app, with a great purpose.

Whether you’re a touch-typist or a hunt-and-pecker, you simply can’t access the full power of your fonts with just your keyboard. Even the first Macintosh was designed to encourage font finesse, and today’s Macs go even further by providing deep access to the thousands of characters and advanced features in modern fonts—if you know where to look.

Thankfully, you don’t need an expensive design application from Adobe or Quark to find and use this font magic. Apple’s apps, like TextEdit, Pages, and Keynote, include a floating Fonts window that’s packed with features we’ll explore here. But if you find yourself using these features often, then a third-party utility such as PopChar 7 (which is celebrating its 25th anniversary!) will make your character-finding tasks even easier and a lot more entertaining.

Many of these devices will connect directly to users' iPhones via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi—no separate hub device required—for unified voice control through Siri. They'll also be able to connect with an Apple TV, allowing for Siri voice controls when users are away from home.

Apple doubles Tim Cook's compensation after...

Apple is clearly happy with CEO Tim Cook’s performance, as his compensation keeps going up and up and up. In 2014, his pay package was valued at $9.22 million, more than double what the company offered him in 2013.

Cook’s actual salary was $1.75 million last year, but he also took in $6.7 million in non-equity incentive pay, according to a Thursday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In 2013, Cook made $4.25 million.

But it was retail chief Angela Ahrendts who made the most of any Apple executive in the last fiscal year. The company recruited Ahrendts from luxury retailer Burberry in May and paid her to relocate from the United Kingdom to the States. Apple gave the exec $70 million in stock grants in the last fiscal year, $37 million of which was compensation for Burberry stock she gave up to take the Apple job. Ahrendts’ annual salary...

XSAN 4: smb share does not let me read/write files...

Forums: Troubleshooting

Good Evening Sanity users.
I recently setup an Xsan 4 Full yosemite 10.10.1 with OS X Server 4.0.3
The MDC1 and 2 are properly configured as DNS and OD master and Replica

Every workstation access to the San with an "Edit" user with ID 502
The resharing in AFP and SMB is done by a simple local user named "share", always with ID 502. No special permissions. The simplest of the simplest.

The network resharing in SMB connected from a Mac works flawlessly. I can mount the Volume, read and write everything without issues.

The network connection from a windows machine is causing me troubles.
I can access the Volume with the user "share"
I can see all the files
I can access and create folders, and also delete folders (if empty)
BUT
I canNOT copy files inside the Xsan volume, not to...

Missouri Law Would Require Photo ID for Apple Pay...

Joshua Peters (D) from Missouri's state House of Representatives thinks smartphone-based payment systems like Apple Pay aren't secure enough, so users should be required to show a photo ID when using their iPhone to make credit card payments in stores. He's so sure of this that he presented bill on Wednesday that would require Missouri retailers to check photo IDs when making smartphone-based payments.

The Mac Observer Spin: I appreciate lawmakers wanting to reduce the risk of credit card fraud, but in this case the Missouri bill is off base. Instead of protecting shoppers, it could convince them to use their plastic card instead, which is inherently far less secure, and could expose their personal identification to criminals, too.

Apple to Support some Non-HomeKit Devices Through...

Apple looks to be positioning Apple TV as more of home automation hub than previously thought because the company plans to use the streaming media box as a bridge between HomeKit and non-homeKit devices. That support means more devices without official HomeKit support can be part of your smarthome setup, but with some big limitations.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple TV looks like it really is shaping up to be Apple's HomeKit hub, just like TMO's Kelly Guimont predicted.

The Mac Observer Spin: Another day, another critical Flash security exploit-or two. Flash is riddled with serious security issues, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better despite the ongoing updates Adobe releases. If you don't need Flash, then get it off your computer.
