Apple’s New iPad Air 2 Available for Online Order

Apple promised the iPad Air 2 would be available for purchase on Friday after unveiling it at a special media event yesterday. The company kept its word and added the new tablet model to its store late Friday morning.

The Mac Observer Spin: You can buy a brand new iPad Air 2 now, but without a firm release date we won't see long lines outside Apple's retail stores like we have with previous iPhone and iPad launches.

The last time we reviewed an APC USB battery pack was all the way back in 2007 — the $70 UPB10, which was capable of recharging the first-generation iPhone twice, and came with a wall adapter for recharging. Today, the company is offering a sleeker 5000mAh version called M5BK ($40) and the 10,000mAh model M10BK ($60), both substantially redesigned and shipped solely with micro-USB recharging cables.

Apple releases iTunes 12.0.1 update

Along with the release of its OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating system yesterday, Apple also turned loose iTunes 12.0.1 to the public.

The new version, which now features a red icon, is “designed for OS X Yosemite” and according to AppleInsider, along with the usual performance boosts and bug fixes, brings a redesigned interface with translucent elements borrowed from Yosemite.

In addition, users can now activate Family Sharing, a feature that lets customers share music, e-book and app purchases with up to five family members. Family Sharing was introduced with iOS 8 and is now available through Yosemite.

Other tweaks include dedicated icons for music, movies and TV shows, a seamless browsing experience when switching between your library and the iTunes Store and the addition of a Recently Added category that aggregates all newly added content.

Finally, iTunes 12.0....

VirnetX files for rehearing of tossed Apple verdict

Patent holding firm VirnetX has filed a motion with the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, requesting a rehearing of a September decision tossing a $368.2 million verdict against Apple, and asking it to reinstate a District Court's damages award in full. In a press release, VirnetX says the decision was "contrary to the patent statute and Supreme Court precedent." It also asserts that it should receive damage payments on the basis that the District Court properly construed the claim term "secure communication link."...

Apple Drops Mac mini Server from Product Lineup

Goodbye, Mac mini server. Apple quietly discontinued the server-ready version of the Mac mini on Thursday as it rolled out updates for its other Mac mini models.

The Mac Observer Spin: The end of the server package isn't a big deal considering you can now buy a new Mac mini for even less and install the server software package through the Mac App Store.

The Sanlitun Apple Store in Beijing, one of the company's most important in China, was witness to a "low-key" iPhone 6 launch Friday morning, says the Wall Street Journal. As close as an hour before store opening, just a handful of people had lined up, even less than the 24 security guards Apple had on site. The line grew to around 100 people by launch, but composed entirely of preorder customers with assigned pickup times. People without preorder reservations simply waited for their turn to get in line....

Tide Starts to Turn Against Gamergate's Women-...


Backlash against the #Gamergate movement escalated several notches this week, thanks to high-profile newspaper reports and a public statement from the Entertainment Software Association. "Threats of violence and harassment are wrong," the ESA said. "They have to stop. There is no place in the video game community -- or our society -- for personal attacks and threats." Though #Gamergate purports to focus on ethics in gaming journalism, it's become known primarily for misogyny, harassment and threats of violence against women.

OS X 10.10 Yosemite Review

An anonymous reader writes: With the release of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, Ars Technica has posted one of their extremely thorough reviews of the OS's new features and design changes. John Siracusa writes that Yosemite is particularly notable because it's the biggest step yet in Apple's efforts to bring OS X and iOS together — new technologies are now being added to Apple's two operating systems simultaneously. "The political and technical battles inherent in the former two-track development strategy for OS X and iOS left both products with uncomfortable feature disparities. Apple now correctly views this as damage and has set forth to repair it." Yosemite's look and feel has undergone significant changes as well, generally moving toward the flat and compact design present in iOS 7 & 8. Spotlight and the Notifications Center have gotten some needed improvements, as did many tab and toolbar interfaces. Siracusa also takes a look a Swift, Apple's new programming language: "Swift is an...

Twitpic to Shut Down on Oct 25 After Failed Buyout...

Twitpic, the Twitter-based online photo sharing service, will be shutting down on October 25 following a failed move to find a buyer for the company. Twitpic chose to close its business after the social network service Twitter threatened legal action over what it saw as a trademark violation in the company's name.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's sad to see a company like Twitpic go, and it would've been nice if they'd chosen an option that didn't involve shutting down their business to resolve the trademark issue.

Apple posts reminder & streaming link for Oct 20...

If you’d like to listen in to Apple’s Q4 earnings call at 2pm PT on Monday, Apple has now posted the link for the live audio stream: www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/earningsq414. It will also remain available for replay for around two weeks afterwards.

The webcast is available on any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or above, as well as any Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or later. Windows users can also listen in so long as they are running QuickTime 7 or later.

Apple’s revenue guidance is quite broad at $37-40B, with a gross margin of 37-38%. We’re unlikely to learn anything specific about iPhone 6/Plus sales, as Apple generally doesn’t break down the numbers by model, but the overall sales figures will give us a good steer.

Everything you need to know about iCloud security

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the latest thing that hundreds of millions of people will likely be dragged into using for the purposes of securing their private information. It’s necessary, and will be irritating to most people, despite their having seen some of the endless reports of sites being cracked and passwords being revealed—whether the passwords were stored in clear text, or using an unsophisticated encryption method that allows crackers to easily test common passwords against the stolen information.

Making 2FA as painless as possible while preserving its improved security is a challenge: most people already have trouble managing passwords, and this adds another layer. Apple’s approach before a few weeks ago wasn’t bad; it just wasn’t implemented as throroughly as it is now. However, Apple and others have kept a very large loophole to avoid breaking...

The iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner than the original Air, adds Touch ID, M8 motion-sensing chip and an AX8 processor that Apple says is 40% faster than the previous model. It also has camera and wifi improvements, and is available in gold … 

The iPad mini 3 is essentially identical to its predecessor bar Touch ID and the gold color option.

Pre-orders for both devices begin today, with the iPads going on sale “late next week” – most likely on Friday.

Following Apple's decision to cease development on its own pro photo organizer and editor Aperture in favor of a forthcoming hybrid photo manager aimed at consumers and pro-sumers called Photos (which will also -- eventually -- replace iPhoto), Adobe has seized on the opportunity to try and lure Aperture and iPhoto users to its own more advanced photo organizer, editor and manager known as Lightroom 5. After publishing a written guide to the process of converting Aperture libraries to Lightroom in August, the company has now codified the procedure in a new free plug-in....

Xsan 4

Tags: Xsan 4

OS X 10.10 Yosemite includes Xsan 4.

There are some changes to how to set up Xsan and compatibility between versions of OS X and Xsan.

If you upgrade your Mac to 10.10 then it is incompatible with Xsan 3. Officially, you can NOT have Xsan 3 (10.9) clients on a 10.10 Xsan, and, vice versa, 10.10 (Xsan 4) clients will not work on a Xsan 3 based SAN.

I’ve done some basic testing with Xsan 4 and it does away with the Xsan Admin app, all setup is done in the Server.app. Also, it depends on Open Directory (and DNS of course). If there is no OD set up then it will create one (same with DNS). Therefore, join your Xsan controller to your OD or risk creating a new master OD.

To configure the clients you export a config profile and install it on the clients, or enrol the Xsan controller in MDM (Profile Manager, for example) and push out the...

An oral history of ‘The Wonder Years’

Rolling Stone:

Though it’s been off the air for more than 20 years, The Wonder Years is one of those shows whose legacy has remained untarnished; you don’t hear many people looking back and saying it doesn’t hold up.

Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous late Sixties, the ABC show focused on a suburban family — in particular, the growing pains of youngest son Kevin, played by Fred Savage. It may be the story’s universality that’s accounted for its ability to stand the test of time, or simply that, because the show only ran for six seasons and faded away before it burned out, the series retained a level of consistent quality throughout.

I haven’t watched it since it was originally on but I remember it with great fondness.

Sporting subtle refinements like a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a beefed-up iSight camera, Apple’s second iPad Air isn’t a dramatic leap past the first iPad Air. But that’s not a surprise. When you make the most popular tablet, there’s really no reason to reinvent the wheel every year.

The "Apple SIM" allows AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or EE support without switching SIM cards.

Andrew Cunningham

Apple's iPad announcements today focused overwhelmingly on the iPad Air 2's thickness, its screen, and its internals, but it and the iPad Mini 3 got some other quieter upgrades too. One such upgrade is a new "Apple SIM," a SIM card that allows the cellular models to switch between multiple mobile carriers without changing the actual card. At launch the card supports AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and UK carrier EE. Though Apple is still selling Verizon-compatible iPads, the US' biggest carrier remains conspicuously (though perhaps not surprisingly) absent from the list.

One thing Apple is emphasizing with the SIM is that it can be used to secure short-term data commitments, rather than the regular monthly charges most...

Apple Posts ‘The Evolution of Retina’ Video

Apple posted the 30 second spot called "iMac with Retina 5K display - The Evolution of Retina" to YouTube Thursday. Like the other videos released today, this one was unveiled during the company's "It's Been Too Long" media event. The spot starts with the original iPhone 4with Retina display, and flips through subsequent generations of iPhones, iPads, and Macs to feature a Retina display, each showing a little bit more of the same high-resolution video than the one before it. It's a very clever illustration of just how much bigger Apple's iMac with Retina 5K display is than everything else around.

Google on Wednesday announced three new devices in its Nexus line: a tablet, a phablet, and a streaming media game player-cum-Android TV device, all of which run Lollipop, the latest version of its Android OS. Lollipop lets users sync content from phones to tablets to TVs and use it seamlessly. It has a consistent design across devices so transitions between tasks are more fluid and content responds to users' touch or voice. The Nexus 6 phablet is from Motorola; the Nexus 9 tablet is made by HTC; and the Nexus Player comes from Asus.

Hands on: The new 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina...

We live in a high-resolution world—our phones have been shooting HD video for years, and 4K-capable cameras are finally within reach of regular consumers. And now Apple’s new iMac with Retina 5K display will let you push those pixels with maximum efficiency. With a native resolution of 5120x2880 pixels, this iMac shows a ridiculous amount of detail in everything you look at.

In the hands-on area at Apple HQ, I saw the new 27-inch iMac editing 4K video in pixel-for-pixel resolution, with enough room left on the screen for all of Final Cut Pro’s toolbars and controls. Final Cut Pro wasn’t even running full screen—in the photo below, notice the Dock still hogging some space along the bottom. Not bad.

Apple Introduces iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Apple has introduced iPad Air 2, the thinnest and most powerful iPad ever. The new iPad features an improved Retina display for enhanced contrast and richer, more vibrant colors, and better cameras for taking stunning photos and videos. Available in gold, silver, and space gray, iPad Air 2 and the new iPad mini 3 offer Touch ID and — in the U.S. — Apple Pay. “iPad is a magical piece of glass that runs more than 675,000 apps specifically designed for it, and is thin and light enough that you can comfortably hold it all day; the new iPad Air 2 is packed with amazing new innovations, weighs less than a pound, and at just 6.1 mm is the thinnest tablet in the world,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPad Air 2 has a new Retina display with anti-reflective coating, second generation 64-bit A8X chip, all-new iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, faster Wi-Fi and LTE wireless, and includes the revolutionary Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor.”

Apple makes iPad Air 2 carrier-agnostic with new...

It’s not as flashy as a gold patina and not as thrilling as a Retina iMac, but the capabilities of the SIM card in the new iPad Air 2 are every bit as major as Apple’s other announcements on Thursday.

When you buy an iPad Air 2 with Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, you won’t have to confine yourself to one carrier for your data plan. The new Apple SIM lets you choose a carrier and a plan on your iPad, and you can switch service at any time. If you’re in the States, you can choose from the majors—AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile—and you can switch to a different one if you’re traveling. Unlike traditional smartphone data plans, iPad cell service is pay-as-you-go, but before Apple introduced its new SIM card, you had to pick a carrier and stick with it.

Quartz:

Perhaps the most interesting news about Apple’s new iPad Air 2 tablet is buried at the bottom of one of its marketing pages: It will come pre-installed with a new “Apple SIM” card instead of one from a specific mobile operator.

It’s early, but it’s easy to see how this concept could significantly disrupt the mobile industry if Apple brings it to the iPhone.

That small announcement could be the shot heard round the telecom world.
