Review: QNAP TS-251A NAS is a great choice for a...

On paper, the QNAP TS-251A looks like a well-specced network attached storage device for home use (buy it here for $319), featuring a dual-core processor and ample 2 GB RAM. It even has a HDMI port and bundled IR remote, so you can plug it into a TV and use it directly.

There are a hundred different features you can use a NAS for but I’m focusing on what I use: backup and a TV shows / movies server. I am looking for units that are easy to use and maintain with enough performance to handle multiple video streams at once, as I use my NAS to provide content for every television in the house. Here’s my hands on with the QNAP NAS and how well it handles media and backup tasks …

Apple made a big deal about the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cameras, but since the announcement of the devices there’s been debate about just how much better the cameras actually are. Our own Jeff Bejanmin has noted of some of the differences with the camera, and now Consumer Reports is out with their analysis of the changes…

See how iPhone 7 Plus’s 3GB RAM performs against...

Apple never comments on the amount of RAM it adds to its mobile devices, but it’s now well-known that the iPhone 7 Plus, with its 3 GB of RAM, has the most memory of any iPhone ever. Only the 4 GB-equipped 12.9″ iPad Pro bests the iPhone 7 Plus in this regard.

It’s largely speculated that the added RAM is there to help out with image processing in concert with the iPhone 7 Plus’ iSight Duo camera. Of course, this is Apple, so many questions remain that will likely go unanswered, but it seems like a logical explanation.

The standard-sized iPhone 7 still has 2 GB of RAM, which, after the dramatic performance differences yielded the last time there was a big RAM increase, may make some people think twice about buying the smaller version. But after an admittedly unscientific test or two, the amount of RAM probably shouldn’t be the top item on your priority list....

macOS Sierra (which I almost forgot comes out tomorrow!) includes a new feature for developers to use tabs in any windowed app. You probably already use tabs in your web browser and Finder gained tabs in a recent OS X update, and macOS Sierra makes using tabs in other built-in apps like Text Editor possible.

Byword is a well-known text editor for the Mac that I personally use to draft stories and edit text for work when I’m not writing in WordPress in Safari. The latest update now lets you collect multiple Byword windows into a single Byword window with tabs just like Safari or Finder.

Apple joins RE100, announces supplier clean energy...

Apple has joined the global renewable energy initiative RE100, reaffirming its commitment to reaching 100% renewable energy worldwide and pledging to work with the initiative to drive clean energy into the manufacturing supply chain. RE100 is a collaborative, global initiative of influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity, working to massively increase demand for - and delivery of - renewable energy.

Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president for Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, announced the membership today during remarks at Climate Week in New York City, and shared additional progress the company is making toward its clean energy goals. 

"Apple is committed to running on 100 percent renewable energy, and we’re happy to stand beside other companies that are working toward the same effort,” she said. “We’re excited to share the industry-leading work we've been doing to drive renewable energy into the manufacturing supply chain, and look...

Apple working on a fix for a Lightning EarPods glitch

Apple is working on a fix for an issue that can cause the new Lightning EarPods for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to stop working properly, the company told Business Insider

The issue, which doesn’t happen consistently, happens after you've left the EarPods plugged into the iPhone 7's Lightning port for a few minutes. Audio continues to play, but the volume control dongle stops working, meaning you can't adjust the volume, activate Siri, or answer calls. It's unclear if the problem affects third-party Lightning headphones, according to Business Insider.

Apple again shows commitment to renewable energy...

 Apple has announced a partnership with Arizona utility Salt River Project (SRP) to create new renewable energy generation to power Apple’s new global data command center. The photovoltaic solar power plant will feed clean power into SRP’s grid that supports the Apple facility, producing up to 151 million kilowatt-hours a year.

Four years ago, Apple committed to power its data centers with 100 percent renewable energy. Since 2009, Greenpeace has benchmarked the energy performance of the IT sector in its annual Clicking Clean report, which is due out at the end of September. 

“Apple has taken another important step to deliver on its commitment to powering its corner of the internet with 100 percent renewable energy. This deal once again shows that renewables are not just good for the environment, but good for business,” says Greenpeace Senior IT Analyst Gary Cook. “Greenpeace will be updating our analysis of who is winning the race to build a renewably powered...

The moment Apple releases a new product, we get to work taking it apart. Last year, the Apple Watch gave us a unique challenge: a new tri-point screw smaller than any we’d seen before. We got it open by improvising with a diamond file.

Then we took precise measurements and created a new CNC-machined tool. Good thing, because the iPhone 7 uses the same screw.

The iPhone design team is completely outclassing Samsung on repairability, but you’re going to need some new tools.

Apple Watch Series 2 hit stores on Friday and I’ve spent the weekend testing its new features. From outdoor cycling and swimming in the ocean to comparing it to the first-generation Apple Watch, I had my own list of questions I wanted answered and I’m mostly happy with my experience.

I used the first-generation Apple Watch every single day since April 2015 and reviewed it in May 2015 after a couple of weeks. For me, the original Apple Watch was a tremendous improvement over my Pebble and basic digital watch with features like Siri, iMessage and Apple Pay plus a design that was good enough to continue with Series 2. A year in, I fully realized how effective Apple Watch can be as a fitness tracker which is where much of the focus on Series 2 exists.

Several commendable users are complaining that their iPhone 7 Plus handsets are making a "hissing" noise especially when they do some heavy weight work. Some users note that this issue extends to the iPhone 7 as well. BusinessInsider reports:Stephen Hackett, cofounder of podcast network Relay FM, tweeted that his iPhone 7 Plus "makes terrible noises when under load," and shared an audio clip of the noise. TechCrunch writer (and former Apple employee) Darrell Etherington responded that his "brand new, just-unboxed [device is] doing the same thing right now." It sounds like the problem isn't affecting all devices, and it's not immediately clear what's behind it. Hackett said on Twitter that Apple will be replacing his device with a new one, which suggests it's a defect rather than just an unexpected quirk of the new smartphone's design. There's some speculation out there as to what's causing it - but nothing concrete yet. Engadget's Jon Fingas suggests it could be "coil whine," a...

So the top brass at Samsung Electronics Co., including phone chief D.J.

They pushed suppliers to meet tighter deadlines, despite loads of new features, another person with direct knowledge said.

Safe to say that it didn’t work out so good for them. Still it’s hard to tell if the battery problem would have been caught even without the tighter deadlines.

The research group says it’s important to note that this data doesn’t represent sales of the newest iPhone, but measures users who have received their phones and have started using apps. This year, many people decided to order online to avoid long lines which means these users will have to wait a couple weeks to get their hands on their new phone. Given that Apple is expected to sell 13 million phones this weekend, beating the first weekend of the “6S” models last year, these...

The iPhone 7's sleeper hit feature is its...

Rumor has it that next year’s iPhone will have an OLED display, but the iPhone 7’s LCD display is more impressive than anyone expected.

The iPhone 7’s screen looks exactly the same as the 6 and 6s—it’s the same size and has the same resolution. But DisplayMate’s new iPhone 7 shoot-out, which compares the new phone to the iPhone 6, turned up a bunch of neat details.

YouTube find: iPhone 7 laps the Samsung Galaxy Note...

OK, we've got another video for you. We know that the iPhone 7 can survive a deep dunking in the cold Columbia River better than the Samsung Galaxy S7; in this video, the iPhone 7 goes head-to-head with a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in a speed test. David Rahimi of PhoneBuff has done similar tests with older iPhones, showing how the iPhone 6s nudged out the Note 7 in terms of real-life speed opening apps and performing similar tasks. 

Spoiler alert: it's not even a contest. The iPhone 7 goes all the way through the test suite twice before the Galaxy Note 7 finished the first "lap". At least the Galaxy Note 7 didn't explode during testing...

I'd love to see a similar test with the iPhone 7 Plus -- with 3GB of RAM -- against the Note 7.

Another video from So Bad So Good dunked the iPhone 7 in the ocean…

Top new Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 features...

Along with the iPhone 7, I was able to go hands-on with both new flavors of Apple Watch: The Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2.

Apple Watch Series 1 doesn’t contain much new in the way of features, but it does come with a faster processor, which makes it worth considering. Series 2 is a larger upgrade, but depending on how you use your Apple Watch, it might not be large enough to warrant an extra $100.

Whatever the case may be, both new watches are much better than the notoriously slow original Apple Watch, which Apple no longer sells. Another thing that flew the coop with this latest update is the somewhat confusing Apple Watch Sport nomenclature. Now, it’s just Apple Watch, and you can get it in either Series 1 or Series 2.

Watch our hands-on video for an explanation of the new Apple Watch and a look at several of its new features....

YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has made a wildly popular video (over 1.5 million views) showing just how waterproof the newest iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S phone are. The results are incredible, with both phones surpassing their IPX7 (iPhone 7) and IPX8 ratings. The two phones are put into a hole-riddled paint can, then lowered into the Columbia River for 5 minutes at various depths.

If you don't want to watch it all the way through, the iPhone 7 did survive at 35 feet (10m) for 5 minutes, although it had a bit of water damage. The Galaxy S7 did not survive.

Pull 'em apart, and they automatically link up to your iPhone. What other features do they have?

Apple may sell 100 million new iPhones by year’s end

Apple may sell up to 100 million iPhone 7s by the end of the year thanks to better-than-expected initial sales, likely a direct result of rival Samsung's recall of the Galaxy Note 7, according to a report from South Korean analysts.

Korean component vendors for Apple expected a volume of 80 million to 85 million units, but this has jumped by between 17-25% to over 100 million by the end of the year, said IBK Investment & Securities analyst Lee Seung-woo. "The order to stop using the Galaxy Note 7 and continuous incidents of them exploding in the US likely have leaned US consumers towards the iPhone," said Lee, in a note to clients — as noted by ZDNet. "It is indisputable that the Galaxy Note 7 incident has become a huge...

My iPhone 7 Plus is emitting noise from its logic...

Stephen Hackett, writing for 512 Pixels:

As my iPhone 7 Plus was restoring from iCloud, I thought I noticed some sound. After picking the device up from my desk, it was clear the sounds are coming from back of the phone, possibly from the CPU. It seems to get worse if the iPhone is under load. It’s loud enough to be heard even if the iPhone is just sitting on the table. I don’t have to put it up to my ear to hear it.

Follow the link if you want to hear the hissing for yourself.

I’ve heard from several other people with similar experiences, and others who are saying past iOS devices have displayed this issue. I’ve handled more devices than most, and haven’t come across this.

I’m not saying this is some widespread problem; I just wanted to share my experience with others who may be having it too.

I’ve never heard of this sort of thing before. The only self-moving part inside the iPhone is the taptic engine, and that wouldn’t make a hissing noise. Is...

10 cool little things to try in iOS 10

This is a nice little collection, definitely worth a read. My favorite is to tell Siri:

Show me pictures of my cats

Obviously, you’ll want to replace “my cats” with something that makes sense for you. This was a bit hit-or-miss for me, but I like the direction. Asking Siri to search for cats worked flawlessly for me. Other searches were way off or prompted Siri to turn to the web, which was not what I intended.

But this one also worked flawlessly:

Show me pictures of food

I had no idea I took so many pictures of stuff I like to eat. And now I’m hungry.

Comment: Can Apple persuade a long-time wired...

I’m personally still very happy with my ultra-pocketable iPhone SE so I have no plans to buy the iPhone 7, but with Apple touting a brave new wireless future, I thought the launch would make an opportune moment to decide whether or not it was time for me to make the switch from a wired world.

Those who know me are often surprised to find that I wasn’t one of the first to switch to wireless headphones. I have a well-known aversion to wires, even going so far as commissioning a bespoke desk to hide them away out of sight. But while I’ve tried a few wireless headphones over the years, I’ve always come back to my wired Bowers & Wilkins P5 …

NeXT-era Steve Jobs photos

This is a small collection of 8 NeXT-era photos, each with a detailed caption. I thought these were worth a look.

My favorite is this one, taken in Palo Alto in 1986.

Here’s that caption:

NeXT design director Eddie Lee said that Steve had a way of “smiling shit at you” when he was getting mad. His head would go down and he’d make this sort of uncomfortable half smile, and you knew you were about to get crushed. Decisions in early team meetings such as this one were fraught with tension because the team was writing its business plan as it went along. One pivotal decision made was to build both the hardware and the software for the NeXT computer, a vastly harder prospect than their original idea to build only software. While still shaping every detail...

Fantastical calendar app gains updated iOS 10-style...

Even if you love Apple’s built-in Calendar apps on iOS 10 and watchOS 3, Fantastical for iOS and watchOS is the best way to view a streamlined list view of both your upcoming appointments and scheduled reminders. I use both apps but Fantastical is my primary calendar (and you can sort of remove stock apps now).

Over the weekend, Fantastical for iOS was refreshed with a much-needed iOS 10 update that supports the new iOS 10 widget styles. Before iOS 10, widgets could be any size which made Fantastical’s month calendar widget very useful, but it didn’t fit iOS 10 without an update.

The iFixit iPhone 7 Plus teardown

A few things really struck me while making my way through this teardown of the iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone cover/display flips to the side, like opening a book. Good to know this if you ever plan to open yours.

The edge of the iPhone cover is rimmed with a caulk-like adhesive, which acts like a gasket to keep liquids out, aid waterproofing (water-resistancing?)

The iPhone is filled with lots of tri-point screws, similar to the ones used inside the Apple Watch.

Finally, I found this to be an incredibly good looking design, at least to my untrained eye. Good stuff.
