List of Macs That Will Run Yosemite

Apple said OS X Yosemite would be released this fall, and with the company's latest media event set for Thursday, there's a good chance we'll have a better idea when to expect the big update to finally roll out. The big question is whether or not your Mac can take advantage of Yosemite's new features. Read on to see if the soon to be released version of OS X will run on your Mac.

IDG cancels 2015 Macworld/iWorld event, announces “...

I wish there was better news, but it’s been some time coming…

Per iMore, IDG, the parent company of both Macworld magazine and the Macworld/iWorld conferences, announced on Tuesday that the conference is “going on hiatus”, and that the 2015 event will not happen. Macworld/iWorld has struggled in recent years with the loss of Apple as a keynote partner, with the company around which the conference revolved opting to focus more on their own events and putting significant capital into WWDC.

IDG’s MacIT Mac-focused enterprise technology conference will continue, but the larger Macworld/iWorld is no more. IDG is likely working to rework the conference, but that it’s going on hiatus doesn’t bode well for Macworld/iWorld’s future. It’s a blow to have the January-duo of CES...

Analyst claims delays will limit second-gen iPad Air...

Apple will announce a second-generation iPad Air at tomorrow's press event, but 2014 shipments of the tablet will be hampered by production delays, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. "Of the new products, we think the market will be more interested in iPad Air 2. However, as the poor yield rate of anti-reflective coating cover lens has delayed mass production, we estimate 2014 shipments of iPad Air 2 of 7- 9mn units, lower than the 12mn units of the then-new iPad Air shipments in 2013," he writes. "We thus expect iPad Air 2 to contribute less to the supply chain than iPad Air di...

Facebook and Apple Now Pay For Female Employees To...

Dave Knott writes: While freezing eggs has become an increasingly popular practice for career-oriented women, the procedure comes at a steep price: Costs typically add up to at least $10,000 for every round, plus $500 or more annually for storage. Now two Silicon Valley giants are offering women a game-changing perk: Apple and Facebook will pay for employees to freeze their eggs. They appear to be the first major employers to offer this coverage for non-medical reasons, both offering to cover costs up to $20,000. Tech firms are hardly alone in offering generous benefits to attract and keep talent, but they appear to be leading the way with egg freezing. Advocates say they've heard murmurs of large law, consulting, and finance firms helping to cover the costs, although no one is broadcasting this support. Companies may be concerned about the public relations implications of the benefit – in the most cynical light, egg-freezing coverage could be viewed as a ploy to entice women to...

Rumor: Apple to announce next-gen 27-inch iMac with...

There’s a lot of predictions as to what will be announced at tomorrow’s Apple media event.

With any luck, some of them will be right.

Per AppleInsider, ever-reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a note stating to expect a highly-anticipated 27-inch iMac with Retina quality display that will ship before the end of 2014, as well as a next-generation iPad Air that could see limited initial supply.

Kuo expects only a 27-inch Retina iMac model to take the stage this week, though a 21-inch version is in the works and could debut in the second half of 2015. The analyst says Apple started on the 27-inch offering prior to the 21-inch because developing two different sized high-resolution panels is a demanding task....

Apple

Gather 'round, friends—it's time for another Apple media event. Tomorrow the company will take the wraps off its next wave of new products, one that's expected to include new iPads and Macs as well as news about the public release of OS X Yosemite.

Last month's unveiling of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch was held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, a larger space that Apple uses mostly for announcements that it considers capital-I-Important. The October event is being held in its small town hall auditorium on its campus at 1 Infinite Loop.

Bono sighed, then said:

Oops, um, I’m sorry about that…This beautiful idea. Might’ve gotten carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania. Touch of generosity. Dash of self promotion. And deep fear that these songs, that we’ve poured our lives into the last few years, mightn’t be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there.

GT Advanced COO Sold Stock After Missed Apple...

GT Advanced Technologies COO Daniel Squiller sold off US$1.2 million in company stock in May and put a plan in place to sell an additional $750,000 over the following months leading up to the company's October bankruptcy filing. The timing of the sales came after GTAT failed to meet milestone points in its sapphire glass production for Apple, and could raise some eyebrows because company CEO Tom Gutierrez was selling off his stock, too, including 9,000 shares the day before the iPhone 6 was introduced.

The Mac Observer Spin: Coincidence or not, Mr. Squiller's stock sale could be seen as a problem because he was very much in a position to know that GTAT's deal with Apple was going south.

More than two-thirds of some 200 IT decision makers in companies with five to 1,000 employees said a spam incident in the last year had severely disrupted their business operations -- or halted them entirely -- in a survey GFI Software released last week. Those incidents can disrupt business in a number of ways, said GFI General Manager Sergio Galindo.

Apple to join Facebook in paying for female...

NBC is reporting that Apple will offer female employees up to $20,000 to cover the costs of freezing their eggs if they want to defer having children until later in their career, following the example of Facebook which recently introduced the same employee benefit.

Fertility specialists advise that women who want to freeze eggs in order to have children later in life should freeze at least 20 eggs, which will typically take two rounds of treatment at a cost of $10,000 each. The $20k fertility benefit offered by both Apple and Facebook should cover this – though there can be storage costs on top amounting to several hundred dollars per month.

The move is likely to be a controversial one, seen by some as a means of supporting women who want to advance their career to a senior level before taking time off for children, and making a tech career more appealing...

Getting in tune: 6 apps for tuning your guitar

If you play guitar or another string instrument, one of the thankless tasks you do before you play—and in between songs—is getting your instrument in tune. There are several ways you can do this: You can have another instrument—preferably one that doesn't go out of tune—play a note, and then tune your other strings to that one. You can use a tuning fork for one string, and tune the rest of your strings to that. Or you can buy an electronic tuner that you clip on your guitar.

But if you have an iPhone or iPad, why not use an app? There are lots of apps that can help you tune your guitar, or other instruments; here are five of them. 

Guitar Toolkit

Besides the tuner, Guitar Toolkit comes with a metronome, chords, and scales.

8 reasons why Lightroom should be your go-to photo...

Even though Photoshop is so incredibly popular its name is a verb, it’s not for the faint at heart. Now that Adobe offers both Photoshop and Lightroom (plus other nifty goodies) for $10/month via its Creative Cloud Photography Program, a dirty little secret is creeping out of the image editing bag: it’s easier to edit images in Lightroom than in Photoshop. Brace yourself and consider the following major advantages.

Powerful database with nondestructive editing

Unlike Photoshop, Lightroom doesn’t edit your original images. Instead, it creates a catalog (database) of the images you tell it about through the import process. The images aren’t squirreled away into some mysterious package file either, like in iPhoto. They live wherever you want them to on your hard drive.

Apple just released new phones, a new version of iOS, and teased its new watch and payment system, but the company isn’t done yet. Apple has a few more
surprises in store at a media event on Thursday in Cupertino.

Well, at least we hope there will be a few surprises. A steady stream of leaks indicate that we’ll see new iPads—as is expected from Apple at this time of

Users of Windows and OS X environments generally subscribe to being on divisive teams, but if you catch people on their own terms in a quiet, safe place, you may very well hear their want of a feature or two from the "other side".

The Subtle Developer Exodus From the Mac App Store

An anonymous reader writes: Milen Dzhumerov, a software developer for OS X and iOS, has posted a concise breakdown of the problems with the Mac App Store. He says the lack of support for trial software and upgrades drives developers away by preventing them from making a living. Forced sandboxing kills many applications before they get started, and the review system isn't helpful to anyone. Dzhumerov says all of these factors, and Apple's unwillingness to address them, are leading to the slow but steady erosion of quality software in the Mac App Store. "The relationship between consumers and developers is symbiotic, one cannot exist without the other. If the Mac App Store is a hostile environment for developers, we are going to end up in a situation where, either software will not be supported anymore or even worse, won't be made at all. And the result is the same the other way around – if there are no consumers, businesses would go bankrupt and no software will be made. The Mac App...

∞ Macworld Expo goes on hiatus

Very sad news today for the Mac community:

“We are announcing today that Macworld/iWorld is going on hiatus, and will not be taking place as planned in 2015. Our MacIT event, the world’s premiere event for deploying Apple in the enterprise, will continue next year with details to be announced in the coming weeks.

I remember back in 1994 as one of the original members of MacCentral that one of our main goals was to attend a Macworld Expo. I grew up in my profession writing about all the great products released at the expos over the years. This is a sad day.

Since 1985, Macworld events have brought together a community to celebrate the incredible innovations that Apple has brought into the world, shining a spotlight on the developers who add value to the user’s experience in infinite ways. As Apple products and the related ecosystem have changed, so has the...
