Lost in Harmony is a stirring musical adventure...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Given the constant juggling act that is my schedule—as a freelance writer and work-at-home dad to a four-year-old—I tend to gravitate towards iOS games that I can play for moments at a time. Quick in, quick out: it’s tough to find focus for much more.

But with Lost in Harmony, I got comfortable in bed one night, plugged in headphones, and played through the entire hour-or-so main adventure in one run. I could have enjoyed a couple of levels and saved the rest for another time, but honestly, I didn’t want to put it down: Lost in Harmony is a uniquely gripping rhythmic...

March was an amazing month for Mac games

By Ric Molina of MacGamer

I just witnessed an amazing month for Mac gaming. And I just had to share it with you. Because the final days of March brought so many exciting news and games to the Mac platform it's hard not to get excited.

As always, all new releases and upcoming Mac games can be found here, but I rather give you a quick summary of the most exciting games. The games I personally can't wait to try. In March 2017, the Mac platform saw the following releases:

X-Plane 11: X-Plane 11 is the most detailed, realistic, and modern flight simulator around. It includes a refined user interface, 3-D cockpits, and more. This all...

External Link: Comcast to Offer Cellular Service in...

Everyone’s favorite cable and Internet provider, Comcast, has announced that it is entering the U.S. cellular carrier market with its new Xfinity Mobile service. Xfinity Mobile will use Verizon’s network and will offer unlimited data, talk, and text for $65 per month by the middle of 2017. Xfinity X1 subscribers with top-tier packages will be able to get service for $45 per month. Signups will be restricted to customers in Comcast’s current service footprint, and initially limited to those with Xfinity broadband service. We had originally attributed the recent wave of unlimited wireless plans to competition from T-Mobile after the FTC prevented its acquisition by AT&T, but insider knowledge of Comcast’s plans could offer an alternative explanation.

External Link: Panic in the iOS Professional Market

Software developer Panic has released its report on 2016. While the company had a great year highlighted by the release of its first game, Firewatch, co-founder Cabel Sasser commented that “iOS continues to haunt us.” Panic killed its Status Board app last year and, despite a significant investment in pro-level apps on iOS, is now refocusing on macOS. “Trying to do macOS quality work on iOS cost us a lot of time for sadly not much payoff,” Sasser wrote. That’s troubling news for Apple, which has spent the past two years pushing the iPad as a professional-level platform.

Several tech companies agree to a $5.3 million...

Several tech companies — including Twitter, Yelp, Instagram and Foursquare Labs — have agreed to pay a consolidated $5.3 million to resolve a putative class action pending in California federal court accusing them of violating user privacy through their apps that took advantage of an iOS feature that uploaded details from users' contact lists, reports Law360.

The settlement agreement was filed earlier this week in a San Francisco federal court. Not counting attorney's fees, the settlement will be provided to qualifying claimants, defined as anyone in the U.S. who downloaded and used the apps between 2009 and 2012. In addition to the companies previously mentioned, Kik, Path, Gowalla and Foodspotting are all involved in the settlement.

Interested in building a Hackintosh? Your GPU...

Jeff Benjamin, writing for 9to5Mac:

I’m currently in the process of building a new Hackintosh rig for 2017, so imagine how surprised and happy I was to hear that Nvidia is working on beta drivers for its GPUs with the latest Pascal architecture. Up until today, I had just settled on being relegated to a Radeon RX 480, or a Maxwell-era Nvidia card.

And:

With today’s announcement, the Hackintosh just got exponentially more appealing. Nvidia’s announcement is positive for a variety of reasons: there’s the prospect of using an eGPU setup with a MacBook Pro, along with future prospects of Nvidia cards powering future Mac Pro hardware.

As I’ve mentioned before, if you do decide to build a Hackintosh, start here.

YouTube won’t allow ads until videos hit 10,000 view...

Starting today, we will no longer serve ads on YPP videos until the channel reaches 10k lifetime views. This new threshold gives us enough information to determine the validity of a channel. It also allows us to confirm if a channel is following our community guidelines and advertiser policies. By keeping the threshold to 10k views, we also ensure that there will be minimal impact on our aspiring creators. And, of course, any revenue earned on channels with under 10k views up until today will not be impacted.

How to dictate instead of typing in macOS Sierra

You can use your voice to enter text with macOS Sierra with its Dictation feature (which is different from Siri). Choose the Apple menu () > System Preferences, click Keyboard, then click Dictation. Turn on Dictation and choose from these Dictation options:

  • Choose whether to use Enhanced Dictation, which lets you use dictation when you're not connected to the Internet.
  • Choose your language and dialect. Some languages, such as English, have multiple Choose the keyboard shortcut you will use to start start dictating.

Cell phone depreciation takes the smallest bite out...

What is your cell phone worth? We all know how much we paid for our phones, but what is it worth today? Like cars, cell phones depreciate as soon as you buy them.

Depreciation data from tech-buying site Decluttr.com shows that Apple’s iPhone models depreciate at a slower rate than the rest of the competition. The Samsung Galaxy S7 lost 50% of its value after just one month on the market. In comparison, the iPhone 7 only lost 34% in the same time period

Newer iPhone models hold their value better as each version is released. The HTC One M9 lost 65% in value in just the first month of being released, making it the biggest depreciator. In fact, HTC performed the worst out of all brands overall in the Decluttr study.

Western Digital announces My Passport SSD, drive...

This could be interesting.

Hard drive manufacturer Western Digital on Thursday announced its My Passport SSD, its first portable SSD with a built-in USB-C port.

While the USB-C connection does require a bundled USB Type-A adapter, when connected to either USB-C or USB 3.x, it can hit speeds of up to 515 megabytes per second. The drive, unfortunately, is not Thunderbolt 3-compatible.

The drive includes Western Digital’s proprietary backup software as well as a WD Security app that can be used to lock the drive with 256-bit AES encryption. It can, of course, also be reformatted to use with Apple’s Time Machine feature.

Design-wise the drive is said to fit in the palm of the hand, but be engineered to survive drops up to 6.5 feet.

The My Passport SSD will be available in 256 gigabyte, 512 gigabyte, and 1 terabyte models with prices around $100, $200, and $400, respectively. A launch date has yet to be revealed.

Rumor: Next-gen, modular Mac Pro may not be...

As dead sexy as the idea of a revamped Mac Pro might be, it might not see the shelves until 2019.

Current rumors have Apple designing a modular Mac Pro, albeit Apple has stated that it won’t be available in 2017. The rumors point towards a design that might not be available until 2019.

Citing anonymous “people and sources who know their stuff”, OSNews’ Thom Holwerda writes that Apple’s decision “seems to have been made only in recent months” following professional user response to the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the lack of Mac Pro updates.

Holwerda also points out that issues with LG’s UltraFine 5K display pushed Apple to invest in its pro hardware. LG eventually resolved those issues, but a new Apple branded pro display is coming alongside the module Mac Pro according to the company.

Apple is also rumored to be integrating the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil closely with macOS in such a way is a neat idea on its own regardless of the Mac Pro...

Apple wants to make sure you don’t drop your iOS...

Apple has applied for a patent (number 20170095043) for a “woven display” tether that would keep you from dropping your iPhone or iPad. The tether could also display useful info and be used for an Apple Watch band.

The patent involves a woven fabric includes light transmissive fibers woven into the fabric to provide a visual display. The fabric may be used as a tether to releasably connect a portable electronic device to a user. The light transmissive fibers may transmit light to convey data to the user, as well as be used as part of the housing of an electronic device.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that modern portable electronic devices may be carried by a user or they may be removably attached to the person of a user by means of straps or other tethers which may be decorative tethers. These tethers prevent the user from dropping or losing the device and function as a convenience to the user. While useful for such purposes, these tethers are generally decorative...

More than a year after introducing a virtual assistant in its Messenger app, Facebook is launching M to the masses. While it was originally conceived as a bot that users would chat with, M now only offers a set of suggestions that are supposed to help with the conversation being carried out.

For example, when users are chatting about getting together for dinner, M will suggest that they create a shared plan that will remind them of the engagement as it approaches. The assistant will give them suggested stickers to react to conversational turns, along with prompts to transfer money, share location, start a poll, or get a ride from Uber or Lyft.

Twitter is suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and alleging the government is misusing an investigative tool as part of an internal witch-hunt to uncover who is behind a Twitter account critical of the immigration service.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in California, comes on the heels of a report that visitors to the U.S. could soon be routinely asked to hand over email and social media account passwords to the immigration service.

In its lawsuit, Twitter says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have demanded it hand over information regarding the @alt_uscis Twitter account.

iPad as a 'Mac buddy' could benefit Apple...

In writing for OS News Thom Holwerda says that, in addition to a new Mac Pro and an iMac Pro, Apple is said to be exploring additional Retina MacBook Pro models without the Touch Bar, and other pro-oriented features, such as hooking an iPad Pro up to a Mac to use it as a Cintiq-like device.

My take: I can’t imagine Apple removing the Touch Bar entirely from MacBook Pros — unless there’s been major outcry against this feature. On the other hand, positioning the iPad as a Touch Bar for desktop Macs, as well as a drawing tablet could help sales of both Apple computers and tablets in a double “halo effect.” (You can currently use your iPad for such a purpose with the Duet Display.)

Such a move would mean added functionality for the iPad. It would also add some serious touch screen features to the Mac without the desktops or laptops having built-in touch screens,...

‘So-Called’

From a New York Times report by Alan Wong:

President Xi Jinping of China is not expected to be strolling the
manicured fairways of the Trump International Golf Club on
Thursday, sizing up his approach shot.

Mr. Xi is known to be an avid soccer fan, bent on transforming
China into a great power in that egalitarian team sport, but the
Chinese Communist Party maintains an ideological contempt for golf
as a rich person’s game.

That view, among others, places him at odds with President Trump,
who owns more than a dozen golf courses and whose so-called Winter
White House, the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., charges
more than $200,000 for membership.

Describing Mar-a-Lago as “the so-called Winter White House” is pernicious at best, and I would argue it’s downright outrageous. No news organization, let alone one...

Rumor: Modular Mac Pro may not ship until early 2019...

When Apple revealed on Tuesday that the current Mac Pro will not see a major update and instead an all-new modular Mac Pro is being developed, the company stopped short of saying just when that decision was made and how long ago the new project started.

Apple said the modular Mac Pro won’t be available in 2017, but didn’t explicitly promise the new machine would be ready next year. OSNews managing editor Thom Holwerda believes the project actually started “only a few weeks ago” and won’t be complete as soon as we may expect.

Dumb refrigerator, meet Smarter FridgeCam

I'm beginning to think that there are some real advantages to the "Internet of Things". Just last night I was getting ready to cook a pasta dish, took some garlic out of the crisper bin, and was disgusted to see that it was quite green and fuzzy. Spoilage is a bad thing, as is not knowing when you're running out of items in your refrigerator. A new smart device from Smarter called the FridgeCam (US$149, available for pre-order) wants to take your old fridge and turn it into much more than just a hiding place for fuzzy garlic.

Smarter FridgeCam and an unusually clean refrigerator...

Instead of spending a lot more money on a connected refrigerator like those made by most of the major appliance manufacturers now, the idea is that you can give your current fridge a dash of intelligence with the addition of FridgeCam. It attaches to the door of any refrigerator, letting you see inside the fridge from anywhere with an internet...

Apple Taken To Court For Refusing To Fix Devices

Australia's consumer watchdog has begun legal action against Apple over claims it refused to repair iPads and iPhones previously serviced by third parties. From a report on BBC: It alleges that Apple made "false, misleading, or deceptive representations" about consumers' rights under Australian law. The case follows complaints that users were "routinely refused" repairs after an error disabled their devices. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) began an investigation after users complained about Apple's so-called "error 53", which disabled some users' devices after they downloaded an update to their operating system.

Malwarebytes: New iOS ‘malvertising’ pushes ‘free’...

Malwarebytes Labs reports that it's discovered a new scareware campaign targeting iOS users. The campaign pushes a “free” VPN app called My Mobile Secure via rogue ads on popular Torrent sites. 

According to Malwarebytes Labs, the page plays an ear-piercing beeping sound and claims the device is infected with viruses. Tapping the Remove Virus button opens the Apple App Store to download the app … and that’s when things go downhill.

According to the developer profile the company is a market research panel designed to understand the trends and behaviors of people using the mobile Internet. Malwarebytes Labs says this should be a red flag when applied to a VPN product, whose goal is to precisely anonymize your online activity by encrypting your data from your ISP, government, bad guys, etc.

When it comes to malicious adverts there’s a preconceived notion that malvertising mostly affects the Windows platform, and the bad guys seem to be taking advantage of that...

Nvidia debuts Titan Xp GPU, announces beta Pascal...

Nvidia has announced its $1,200 Titan Xp GPU [graphics processing unit], as well as news that new beta Pascal drivers are coming next week for the Mac. The company says it pushes more cores, faster clocks, faster memory and more TFLOPS than its predecessor, the 2016 Pascal-powered Titan X.

Stats for the Titan Xp include: 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4 Gbp; 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz; and 12 TFLOPs of “brute force.” Nvidia says its making the GPU open to the Mac community with new Pascal drivers, coming later this month.

What's more, according to 9to5Mac, Pascal-based GPUs will be Mac-enabled via upcoming drivers. This means that you will be able to use a GTX 1080, for instance, on a Mac system via an eGPU setup, or with a Hackintosh build.

The current Nvidia beta drivers require macOS...

Clips arrives for the iPhone and iPad

Apple has released Clips, a new app that allows iPhone and iPad users to create “expressive videos.” It lets you combine video clips, photos and music into videos to share with friends through the Messages app, or on Instagram, Facebook and other social networks.

Clips also introduces Live Titles, a feature that lets users create animated captions and titles using just their voice. Effects including comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters.

Clips lets users create multi-clip videos on iPhone or iPad without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools, according to Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. Touch and hold a single button to shoot live video and photos, or add them from the Photo Library. Then add artistic filters, speech bubbles, shapes or emoji. Users can also add full-screen posters with animated...

The app also lets you stitch together several clips from your camera roll “without timelines, tracks, or complicated editing tools.”

Like other mobile video editing apps, users will be able to record video or take photos from within the app, and then stylize them with text, filters, speech bubbles, and emoji. You can also add elevator music as a soundtrack and create animated backdrops.

iMac rumors: Power to spare, late October release

Rumors are always suspect, especially when they're from a blog that few have heard about. But when those rumors coincide with what we'd all like to see and they're from a site that has a track record of finding references to unreleased Macs with macOS versions...well, they're worth spreading around. That's the case with a rumor from Pike's Universum, which cites a "little bird" that is "usually pretty accurate" as the source for details about the expected Pro-level iMacs that Apple hinted at early in the week.

The specs sound juicy!

Intel Xeon E3-1285 V6 processor as a top-end CPU choice. The processor hasn't been released at this time, but might be similar to the E3-1280V6 with integrated Intel HD Graphics P630.

Pebble owners are a devoted bunch, having crowdfunded the first big cross-platform smartwatch into existence and seeing it become the template that rival smartwatch makers would follow. But now that Pebble has been acquired by Fitbit and is presumably nearing the end of its life, Pebble users fretted that their watches would cease to work once Pebble dies. That’s not the case.

Pebble just rolled out an iOS and Android update that frees its watches from cloud-based online servers. That means when Pebble goes offline, your watch will still work. You’ll also still be able to install firmware updates sans server, including language packs, and side-load apps onto the watch.

Review: Apple’s $329 iPad is for people who have...

Andrew Cunningham

Apple isn’t shy about admitting it: the biggest feature of its newest iPad is the price. At $329, it’s $70 cheaper than the iPad Air 2 used to be, $270 cheaper than the smaller iPad Pro costs now, and $170 cheaper than the initial starting price of the iPad back in 2010. It’s a big shift, especially after a year-and-a-half where larger and more expensive iPads were Apple’s main focus.

That’s apparently where the users are. Apple told us that the iPad Air 2 was its most popular iPad, and it had been since its introduction in October of 2014. It was the most popular with enterprises, the most popular with small businesses, the most popular in schools, and the most popular with people who were new to the iPad altogether (more than half of all iPad Air 2 buyers were picking up their first iPad). And even after the introduction of the iPad Mini in 2012 and...

The reviewers seem to agree the app provides fun and promising editing features, but most also noticed the user interface proved to be a little too difficult or confusing.

Microsoft ranks highest in overall satisfaction in the J.D. Power 2017 U.S. Tablet Satisfaction Study, doing so for the first time since the study’s inception. With an overall satisfaction score among tablet owners of 855 (on a 1,000-point scale), Microsoft’s achievement is largely due to its top rankings in the features and styling & design factors, according to J.D. Power, a consumer insights, advisory services and data and analytics.

In features, Microsoft is the highest performer in three areas: variety of pre-loaded applications; Internet connectivity; and availability of manufacturer-supported accessories. Microsoft Surface users have the highest incidences of accessory use, which underscores the device’s versatility, according to J.D. Power. 

These accessories include a stylus (48% vs. 27% industry average); physical keyboard (51% vs. 14%); and mouse (27% vs. 6%), all of which have higher satisfaction....
