Apple releases first OS X 10.10.3 build to developer...

It’s the previews and betas that let you know about the cool stuff coming down the pipe…

Developers got their mitts on build 14D721, the first preview build of OS X 10.10.3 on Thursday. The new build featured the first sample of Apple’s forthcoming Photos application, which replaces iPhoto for Mac.

Apple offered a preview of Photos under embargo to select publications ahead of Thursday’s beta release. Initial impressions make it clear the application is yet another marriage between iOS and OS X, including icons and a general look and feel borrowed from the native Photos application for iOS 8.

In the release notes, Apple states that Photos for OS X automatically organizes a user’s photo library, and includes comprehensive editing tools. Users can also store both photos and videos in the cloud using iCloud Photo Library, accessing them across devices.

Virtual Reality a Sports Training Game Changer


Quite a bit of buzz broke out recently in sports circles when a Stanford quarterback was caught on ESPN sporting an Oculus virtual reality (VR) face mask. Not that VR is totally new, but fans want more out of their athletes and the sight of such a souped-up technical edge on the field was a novel thrill. But that thrill won't be novel for long as VR is headed for mainstream use in all sports from pro to little league and T-ball levels -- and when transformative training shows up in a few teams -- it invariably spreads to others.

Swatch looking to release smartwatch to compete in...

It’s been a while since Swatch was considered hip and/or cutting edge, but the company might be seeing something in the wearables market.

Swatch Group AG announced plans to start selling a smartwatch within the next three months, potentially pitting the Swiss maker of colorful plastic timepieces against the debut of the Apple Watch.

The device will communicate via Near Field Communications and won’t have to be charged, Chief Executive Officer Nick Hayek said in an interview. The Swatch smartwatch will also let consumers make mobile payments and work with Windows and Android software, he said.

Analysts stated that the market for such timepieces, which enable phone or data communication, will probably reach about US$10 billion in 2018, Citigroup Inc. analysts forecast last year, with half of the market coming from traditional watch wearers switching to the devices.

You Should Play: Rearrange comic panels to help...

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.

We've seen loads of games based on comic books, many more styled to look like comics regardless of heritage, and even a couple set in comic-panel worlds—Sega Genesis favorite Comix Zone comes to mind. But Framed tries a different approach: it's a game designed to mimic the flow and structure of a comic book or graphic novel. It builds mechanics from the placement of the panels themselves, which is incredibly clever.

metadata network required?

Forums: Troubleshooting

Hi all,

So i have xsan server and clients connected only to the corporate network, and was wondering if xsan requires a separate metadata network to function properly. Corporate network is of course gigabit and reliable cisco enterprise switches. Reason why I had to skip on the metadata network is because client machines and xsan locates in different buildings, therefor setting up a separate private network would be a challenge. Not to mention it would not be as reliable as corporate switches. Would i bet able to get away with using just 1 ethernet for each device?

With Insider Help, ID Theft Ring Stole $700,000 In...

itwbennett writes The Manhattan District Attorney's office has indicted five people for using personal information stolen from around 200 people to fund the purchase of hundreds of thousands of dollars in Apple gift cards, which in turn were used to buy Apple products. "Using stolen information to purchase Apple products is one of the most common schemes employed by cybercrime and identity theft rings today," District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in a statement. "We see in case after case how all it takes is single insider at a company—in this instance, allegedly, a receptionist in a dentists' office—to set an identity theft ring in motion, which then tries to monetize the stolen information by purchasing Apple goods for resale or personal use," he said.

Editing with Photos for OS X, Apple’s iPhoto (and...


CN.dart.call("xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:[], collapse: true});

The writing has been on the wall for Apple's older photo editing apps for some time now. Apple announced back in June of 2014 that both the consumer-level iPhoto app and the pro-level Aperture app would be replaced by a new app called Photos for OS X (which may have began life as iPhoto X). The app is an offshoot of the Photos app for iOS, and early demos of the app showed that it used the same icon and a similar interface.

Photos for OS X wasn't ready in time for the Yosemite launch, but today Apple released the app to developers and some members of the press as part of the first preview build of OS X 10.10.3. Rather than being available as a separate app, Photos will be downloaded and...

Twitter's plan to boost growth: Videos,...

Expect to see Twitter move fast and try not to break anything this year as it attempts to add new users and make more money without angering the people who love it just the way it is. Things have to change. Despite Twitter proving that it can sell ads with the best of them, the company’s lagging user growth is a sore point still.

Twitter grew its user base by 20 percent in 2014 over 2013. Solid, right? But when you dig into the actual numbers, Twitter is faltering: The network added just 4 million monthly active users in the fourth quarter, up to 288 million, despite efforts to make signing up and using the service easier than ever. The network also lost 4 million MAUs in the fourth quarter due to trouble with the rollout of iOS 8, Twitter Chief Financial Officer...

The history of measles: A scourge for centuries

LA Times:

Measles has been a scourge for centuries, afflicting millions of people. It has been blamed, in part, for decimating native populations of the Americas as Europeans explored the New World. In modern times, before a vaccine was developed, nearly every American contracted the virus, with its telltale skin blotches and fever. Measles was declared eradicated in the U.S. in 2000, but has staged a comeback as the inoculation rate has dropped. Here’s a history.

Many people think of measles as an innocuous childhood disease but it’s actually incredibly dangerous and sometimes deadly.

The town where everyone got free money

Vice:

Between 1974 and 1979, the Canadian government tested the idea of a basic income guarantee (BIG) across an entire town, giving people enough money to survive in a way that no other place in North America has before or since.

For those four years—until the project was cancelled and its findings packed away—the town’s poorest residents were given monthly checks that supplemented what modest earnings they had and rewarded them for working more. And for that time, it seemed that the effects of poverty began to melt away. Doctor and hospital visits declined, mental health appeared to improve, and more teenagers completed high school.

Damn Canadian socialists.

Under Armour purchases My Fitness Pal, Endomondo to...

When one of the largest fitness attire companies on the planet starts to look into wearables, people take notice.

Under Armour has apparently shelled out $560 million to buy two fitness apps, giving it access to a mountain of data about health enthusiasts that it hopes will help it to sell more sportswear.

The company will pay US$475 million to buy MyFitnessPal, a HealthKit-integrated app that helps people lose weight by letting them record what they eat and count calories. It will also pay US$85 million for Endomondo, an app from Denmark that lets people track their activity, whether that’s running or doing gymnastics.

Combined with the fitness services it already owns, Under Armour says the deals give it access to “the world’s largest digital health and fitness community,” with 120 million registered users. And the more people log and share what they do, the more...

Lumoid to allow customers to rent Apple Watch before...

If you’re on the fence and hesitant about buying an Apple Watch, you might be able to rent one first.

A gadget rental outfit called Lumoid plans to rent Apple Watches as part of its wearable rental program for consumers, said, Aarthi Ramamurthy, the company’s founder and CEO.

Lumoid will roll out a waiting list on its website later this week for consumers looking to get their hands on the device when it begins shipping in April.

Although details about the Apple Watch are still emerging, pricing rumors have the watch retailing for between US$349 for the Sport model and US$5,000 for the gold edition.

“Before breaking the bank on the smartwatch, consumers should be able to try it out,” Ramamurthy said.

At present, Lumoid lets customers rent up to five wearable devices for a period of seven days. At the end of the week, if the customer decides not to make a...

Photos for OS X brings easier navigation and more...

Macworld:

Providing many of the features found in its mobile sibling, the Yosemite-only Photos for OS X offers an interface less cluttered than iPhoto, improved navigation, simpler yet more powerful editing tools, the ability to sync all your images to iCloud (though it doesn’t require you to), and new options for creating books, cards, slideshows, calendars, and prints. I’ve had the opportunity to take an early look at Photos, and this is what I’ve found.

This is the developer preview but, in my experience, it’s pretty stable with few true glitches or bugs. Keep in mind, this is not (yet at least) a professional Aperture or Lightroom level app. But, that being said, it’s still pretty good.

Google has access to Twitter like everyone else, but the process of crawling the network for tweets is a painstaking one. But later this year, Twitter will make it easier for Google to show tweets in search results now that the two companies have reportedly patched up their relationship.

The agreement isn’t official, but Bloomberg reported Wednesday evening that Google and Twitter are working on a deal that would let Google plug back into Twitter’s firehose of data. The search engine had access to the stream from 2009 to 2011, but was cut off after Twitter began tightening access to its API. Twitter allows Bing and Yahoo access to the firehose, so it’s not surprising that Google is being allowed back into the fold.

Choosing the Metadata Network on Xsan 4

Forums: Troubleshooting

Good Evening Xsan Admins.

I would like to share with you an experience i had configuring a brand new Xsan 4.
I have my two Mdc, configured in the DNS as the following:

mdc1.xsan 192.168.0.100
mdc1-private.xsan 10.0.0.100
mdc2.xsan 192.168.0.101
mdc2-private.xsan 10.0.0.101

The metadata network is the 10.0.0.x, so the hostname is set to the public one, the mdc1.xsan with 192.168.0.x
The Open Directory is created properly, and so the Xsan, with it's volume comes up nice.
Unlike the Xsan up to Maverick, during the creation of the Xsan, it doesn't comes up the selector of the Metadata network, and in the fsnameserver file, the IP showed is the 192.168.0.100 and 101: the public one.

If Google’s mapping vehicles seemed a bit strange, Apple may have their own making the rounds.

A number of minivans with what appears to be camera equipment and a LiDAR sensor mounted to the roof that have appeared around California in recent weeks could be part of a new Apple project, as at least one of the vehicles is registered to the company.

The minivans sport an X-shaped frame mounted to their luggage racks, with dark recesses that likely house cameras at each corner. The California Department of Motor Vehicles confirmed to San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX that a blue Dodge Caravan spotted with the equipment was leased to Apple.

Along with the cameras, a pair of spinning cylindrical devices fitted to the front and rear look to be LiDAR sensors. LiDAR is a laser-based technology used to make high-resolution maps, and also forms an integral part of the sensing systems on...

After the court handed down an injunction following an original suit filed in January of 2014, a US District Judge in San Francisco ruled this week that Typo will have to pay the £567,303, or approximately $860,600, fine for violating the injunction and continuing to sell the product.

AAPL stock was selling at a split adjusted $12-14 a share in early 2007 so if he would have done quite well if it hadn’t been illegal.

Not everybody was impressed with the iPhone in its original form. Microsoft’s then CEO Steve Ballmer dismissed it in a famous rant after the launch:

Reuters: HealthKit pilot programs rolling out in...

Reuters tonight reported that it recently polled 23 of the nation’s top hospitals and found that 14 of them have already launched the first stages of programs built on Apple’s HealthKit software in place, or have plans to do so in the near future.

These programs will allow doctors to monitor patients with chronic medical conditions and alert them at the first sign of a problem, giving users the ability to take preventative action rather than reactive. These programs will likely be expanded to include data collected by the Apple Watch when it debuts later this year.

Apple has put together a team of experts to act as liaisons between the company and its...

Dazzling Results

Juan Pablo Vazquez Sampere, writing for Harvard Business Review, “We Shouldn’t Be Dazzled by Apple’s Earnings Report”:

But one thing has changed. Apple used to revolutionize
industries, announcing record sales numbers because it had
introduced a new technology, feature, or product that we had never
imagined but that, when we saw it, we all instantly wanted. That
Apple seems no longer present. In this instance, all Apple has
done is copy a feature for its own best customers. While that’s
very effective for today, it does not solve the problem of
tomorrow for a company that competes on serial innovation.

That one feature he’s talking about is the larger display sizes for the iPhone 6. I’ll reiterate that Apple has never been a company that serially produced revolutionary product after revolutionary product. Their revolutions...

JavaScript, PHP Top Most Popular Languages, With...

Nerval's Lobster writes Developers assume that Swift, Apple's newish programming language for iOS and Mac OS X apps, will become extremely popular over the next few years. According to new data from RedMonk, a tech-industry analyst firm, Swift could reach that apex of popularity sooner rather than later. While the usual stalwarts—including JavaScript, Java, PHP, Python, C#, C++, and Ruby—top RedMonk's list of the most-used languages, Swift has, well, swiftly ascended 46 spots in the six months since the firm's last update, from 68th to 22nd. RedMonk pulls data from GitHub and Stack Overflow to create its rankings, due to those sites' respective sizes and the public nature of their data. While its top-ranked languages don't trade positions much between reports, there's a fair amount of churn at the lower end of the rankings. Among those "smaller" languages, R has enjoyed stable popularity over the past six months, Rust and Julia continue to climb, and Go has exploded upwards—...

Darkwater

Matt Gemmell:

There’s a lot of misunderstanding out there about mental health. Some people are up, some people are OK, and some people are down. Everyone gets down from time to time. Pull your socks up, and get on with it. Hold it together.

It’s reasonable advice – as long as you’re just feeling down.

For some people, though, down doesn’t cover it. They can’t just get on, because their feet can’t find the bottom.

There’s a predator down there. That’s the truth. Black as pitch, and silent in motion. It can see perfectly even where no light penetrates – in fact, especially there. It’s surprisingly warm to the touch, but it can drain all the heat out of a room in moments.

As one who suffers from depression, Matt’s piece really hit home for me.

Google's Android team has advised outside security researchers that it will no longer fix security bugs found in Jelly Bean or earlier releases, despite the fact that "pre-KitKat 4.4" software powers the majority of active users' devices currently accessing Google Play. Meanwhile, less than 0.1 percent of Android users have received Android 5.0, and those who have report an "unfinished/unpolished" experience.

Now Google has released Chrome Remote Desktop for iOS and you can do it for free. You'll do it, too: try this once and you will forever keep finding other reasons why it's incredibly useful. It's fantastic when you forget a file, for instance, and can now just find and email it to yourself from afar. And it will save your soul, your sanity and yo...

A new lawsuit filed against gyroscope and accelerometer supplier for Apple, InvenSense, accuses the company of failing to tell investors about the concessions it made to secure a recent deal. InvenSense parts are used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; executives should have warned investors, the suit alleges, that Apple was given a "sweetheart deal" that would hurt profits. "Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...

Whatever it is, though, it's happening and you cannot stop it – not even with an application like this: but if PhotoWatermark can't prevent the copying of images, it can help photographers and artists considerably by adding identifying text to your image...

Sales of Macs look to be way up, iOS devices are selling much better in a key foreign market, and Apple's suppliers are flourishing -- all signs that point to better-than-expected quarter....

Siri controls will always work while an iPhone or iPad is on the same network as a HomeKit device, but until now it wasn't fully clear how remote operation might work. The Apple TV must also be a third-generation model running at least v7.0 firmware or newer. Notably, remote operation without Siri -- using the vendor app for a HomeKit product directly -...
