Hackintosh: AMD or Nvidia for Final Cut Pro X? [...

If you’re looking to build a Hackintosh that can serve as a competent Windows gaming rig on the side, then a build powered by an Nvidia GPU is a good choice. In our most recent Hackintosh build, we paired an Intel i7 6700k with Nvidia’s fastest gaming GPU, the 1080 Ti.

The results weren’t all that surprising. Performance was good in a macOS environment even when using Nvidia’s beta web drivers. Performance was a lot better, though, in a Windows environment, where Pascal GPUs can really thrive.

If you’re interested in building a Hackintosh solely for video editing, however, then an Nvidia-powered GPU option might not be the best choice. Sure, Nvidia GPUs with their CUDA cores are generally superior for editing in an Adobe workflow,...

Review: The Amazing Hover Camera Passport

There are literally hundreds…if not thousands…of drones available for those who want to capture images taken from the air. The Hover Camera Passport (US$499.95) is something different; think of it as a camera that it happens to fly autonomously or under your control rather than a "normal" drone.

I was enthralled by this little drone when it first appeared as a self-crowdfunded pre-order item last fall. Apparently I wasn’t the only person who was excited about this device; it quickly went into production and is now sold exclusively at Apple stores. In fact, some Apple retail outlets are actually doing in-store demos of the Hover Camera Passport, as it’s safe to fly it indoors.

Let’s get some misconceptions out of the way. First, this is not competition to “semi-pro” drones like the DJI Mavic Pro or similar devices. It’s made to be a small and very safe aerial camera with limited...

We all know Google search is the best way to find news, concert clips, and funny cat GIFs, but when it comes to local happenings, it can be hit or miss. But a new feature baked into Google’s search tools on your phone is designed to fill up your social calendar.

In the latest update to the Google app on Android and iOS (as well as anywhere else you can find a search bar on your phone), you should begin seeing a new interface for local events. For example, when you search for “concerts this weekend” you’ll see a new Events tab at the top of your search results.

You’ll be able to quickly view events happening today, tomorrow, or next week, all presented in a calendar-style view that lets you easily see the date, time, and location. Tapping “more events” will expand the view to see additional dates, and you can tap again for more details or to buy tickets.

As he notes, these companies have become the most powerful firms of any kind, essentially inescapable for any consumer or business that wants to participate in the modern world. This brings us to two questions: 1. Of the five aforementioned companies, tell us one whose services you don't need for work and for personal use. (In short, the company that doesn't matter to you.) Here's a poll where you can cast your vote. 2. On the same note, which company's services and products you can't ditch (for work / personal use)?

The ‘iPhone 8’ will have to displace the iPhone 6S...

According to ScientiaMobile, the upcoming “iPhone 8” will have to displace the iPhone 6s to become the world’s most used smartphone. The research group’s “Mobile Overview Report (MOVR)” notes that the iPhone 6S was the most used smartphone model in the world despite the iPhone 7 launch in September 2016.

According to ScientiaMobile, the iPhone 6S became the most used in February 2017 and is now at almost 8% of all global smartphone browsing. In comparison, the iPhone 6 peaked in popularity a year earlier, February 2016, at 14.6%, 488 days after launch. 

Today the iPhone 6S usage continues to grow despite the iPhone 7 launch. The iPhone 7 user-base is still on an upward trajectory, ending March at 3.6%, earning third place among iPhones. Given the size of the iPhone 6 user-base, “the upgrade potential for the iPhone 7 and 8 is significant if Apple can retain customers,” says ScientiaMobile.

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, the iPhone 7 was the world’s best-selling smartphone model in the first quarter of 2017. The research group estimates that Apple shipped 21.5 million units and captured 6% marketshare worldwide in the first quarter (Q1) of 2017.

“The iPhone 7 is by far the world’s most popular smartphone model, due to a compelling blend of user-friendly design, extensive supporting apps, and widespread retail availability for the device,” says Juha Winter, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics. “The iPhone 7 Plus, with its bigger screen and higher pricing, shipped 17.4 million units for second place and 5% marketshare worldwide in Q1 2017. Apple today accounts for two of the world’s top five smartphone models.”

Strategy Analytics says global smartphone shipments reached 353.3 million units in Q1 2017. Samsung managed to get two models in the top five during Q1 2017. The Galaxy J3 captured 2% global smartphone marketshare and...

New case listing hints at a 10.5-inch iPad Pro intro...

Urban Armor Gear appears to be preparing a case for the rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro. A stock system at an Apple Authorized Reseller shared with 9to5Mac shows a UAG Metropolis Folio Case “for iPad 10.5-inch” in three color combinations, with availability listed as June 2017. So we may see a new model iPad Pro introduced at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference.

A 10.5-inch iPad is expected to target education and business sectors. The beauty of the new size of Apple tablet (if it’s a reality) is that it’s the same size as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro but with a resolution of 2,024-by-1,668 (compared to the current 2,048-by-1,536) because of a smaller bezel. This works well for Apple because it means 9.5-inch iPad Pro accessories like the Smart Keyboard can be used with 10.5-inch version.

Mafia 3 blasts onto the Mac tomorrow

By Ric Molina of MacGamer

Aspyr has confirmed the final release date for Mafia 3’s Mac version. It’s coming tomorrow, May 11, and it will support Apple’s Metal API (application programming interface).

Metal is a core graphics technology that gives apps near-direct access to the GPU [graphics processing unit]. This means faster and more efficient rendering performance across the system. Metal bypasses the OpenGL framework — which on macOS is slooow, dragging high-end Mac apps and games down in comparison to their Windows counterparts. Apple must ensure that Metal doesn't lose its momentum.

Here's how Mafia 3 is described: “It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for.

What you’ll find below is a case study offering potential solutions to address some of Apple Music’s problems, as well as ideas for future development. My process was guided by qualitative user research, Apple’s official Design Principles, and my own designer intuition.

To me, there’s always value in a project like this, value in identifying flaws in an existing design, as well as in prototyping fresh design approaches. Feedback like this is a gift to the Apple Music team. Hope someone there takes a look.

The Fifth Avenue Apple Cube has vanished

Gothamist:

The famed Fifth Avenue glass Apple Cube is no more, at least for the foreseeable future. Though the cube existed just yesterday, this morning tipster Josh Weiner spotted a gaping chasm by the GM Building where the monument to interminable lines for the Genius Bar once stood.

And:

Apple apparently spent $2 million to take down the cube to help facilitate its massive expansion at the 767 Fifth Avenue space—the store plans to swell from 32,000 to 77,000 square feet in order to accommodate more tourists and their unending questions about iPads. Apple has temporarily taken up residence at the former FAO Schwarz space inside the GM Building, so instead of being full of expensive toys for children, it is now full of expensive toys for adults, and also children.

Apple Support app updated to 1.1, adds new...

This could come in handy.

Apple has just released version 1.1 of its Apple Support app, the new version allowing users to schedule device repairs at Authorized Service Providers, not just Apple store Genius Bars. The integration greatly increases the number of service locations available to customers and is a welcome addition for users living in rural areas where the nearest Apple store might be hours away.

Such a change brings the app more in line with Apple’s web site, which began displays authorized repair providers as of December. The app offers users a list of repair venues that can be sorted by location, distance and available appointment. The scheduling process is identical to reserving a spot at the Genius Bar, with authorized facilities presenting open dates and times which can then selected by the customer.

In addition to the scheduling system modification, the app now supports Genius Bar reservations at Apple retail locations in China, Hong Kong,...

Design student imagines really cool new approach to...

A design student whose work was praised by Apple as the company turned him down for an internship decided to take the feedback to heart. When Apple told Northwestern Uni student Jason Yuan they wanted to see more growth and training, he decided to work on this by redesigning the iOS Apple Music app.

The project began with qualitative research – talking to users in depth about their approach to music and their experience of the app – and led to what proved to be a key insight …

Apple quietly acquires Beddit, may be looking to...

Sometimes Apple makes small-but-cool acquisitions.

Apple has snagged popular iOS sleep tracking platform and hardware maker Beddit. While specific details of the acquisition are unclear at this point, Beddit has updated the privacy policy on its website to announce the acquisition and note of a privacy policy change.

The Beddit iOS app’s description was altered on the App Store today to reflect that change in personal data collection policy that comes as part of the Apple acquisition.

Reddit offered the following change in description:

“Beddit has been acquired by Apple. Your personal data will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Apple Privacy Policy.”

Beddit also sells sleep tracking hardware such as its Beddit 3 Sleep Monitor, which is placed underneath a bed sheet for more accurate sleep tracking. The product is sold via Apple’s online store.

Apple has pursued sleep tracking as a feature for a while now. Since the...

The W3 Stand for Apple Watch practical, fun and...

Talk about your Mac mini. With the $16 W3 Stand for Apple Watch, you can turn your Apple smartwatch into the world’s smallest Mac. Well, not really, but the combo does offer that illusion. 

The W3 Stand is a silicone smartwatch stand that makes the Apple Watch resemblea miniature Macintosh; it’s even equipped with a floppy drive cutout. The Elago device is compatible with all Apple Watch series running watchOS 2 or higher.

The charging puck for the smartwatch slips into a recessed circular hole in the stand, and the cable tucks underneath. Then slid in the Apple Watch. The straps can be connected around the back of the stand to make the set-up look even more Mac-like.

Place your smartwatch on the stand to charge your watch. Sit it near your bed to easily access functions such as alarm clocks and messages. Plus, the W3 Stand conveniently supports Nightstand mode. Heck, the mode's green coloring...

The European Union is planning a new law to address what it describes as ‘unfair contractual clauses’ following a complaint by Spotify, Deezer and others.

While Apple was not specifically named in the complaint, Spotify considers it unfair that Apple takes a 15% cut of in-app subscription purchases, arguing that this makes it less competitive against Apple Music

Keyboard shortcuts are faster than reaching for the...

This is another skill I recommended in the first chapter of Dr. Macintosh (1989) and still recommend to this day. That skill is reducing your dependence on the mouse. 

Many of the things you do with your mouse can be done faster and easier with a keyboard shortcut.If you’re not familiar with keyboard shortcuts, look in just bout any menu in almost any application and you’ll see some. Take the Finder’s Edit menu, for example:

Memorize these keyboard shortcuts or at least memorize the ones for Cut, Copy, Paste, and Select All... 

I can’t remember the last time I opened this menu to use any of its commands. They’re so important and I use them so often, their keyboard shortcuts are embedded in my muscle memory. It would behoove you to memorize them all (or at least the four in the middle: Cut, Copy, Paste, and Select All).

Here’s another useful example: Instead of selecting the Icon, List, Column or Cover Flow view from the View menu, try using...

I tested Gogo’s in-flight Wi-Fi of the future and...

I hate paying for in-flight Wi-Fi. I use its terrible quality and high price as excuses to disconnect from the world and take a nap. But Gogo is about to ruin my life with its upgraded Wi-Fi, rolling out to airlines later this year.

I tested Gogo’s next-gen 2Ku internet system in its Airborne Test Lab, a Boeing 737-500 that flew a couple dozen journalists around Newark Liberty International Airport Tuesday afternoon. The lab environment combined Gogo’s upgraded modem with capacity from Intelsat’s high-throughput satellites, which aim to deliver up to 100 Mbps per airplane. On a mostly empty plane cruising at 30,000 feet, I was getting anywhere from 20-50 Mbps download speeds on every device I brought with me: a MacBook Air, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and iPhone 7 Plus. This will likely never happen to me again—both sitting in a seat with extra legroom on a Boeing 737 and the ultra-fast download speeds—and it was glorious.

Apple patent involves simplified audio navigation...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,644,983) for “simplified audio navigation instructions” that hints at future features for its Maps app for macOS and iOS and perhaps tweaks to CarPlay.

Compatible with the iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

According to Apple’s patent, a mobile device can be configured to provide simplified audio navigation instructions that can provide a reduced set of audio navigation instructions so that the audio instructions are only presented to the user when the user wishes to or needs to hear the instructions. 

You can enable the simplified audio navigation instructions or they can be enabled automatically. The instructions can be configured with rules for when to present audio navigation instructions. For example, the...

Apple Becomes First US Company To Top $800 Billion...

According to Bloomberg, "Apple became the first U.S. company with a market value of more than $800 billion as investors bet the next iPhone will spur a resurgence in sales." From the report: The stock rose 1 percent Tuesday to close at $153.99 in New York, giving it a market capitalization of about $803 billion. The shares have gained 33 percent since the start of the year, helped by a buyback program that Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook extended to total $210 billion last week, from $175 billion last year. Apple's rise to the top of the world's largest equity market highlights the emergence of mobile technology and the relative decline of the oil industry in recent years. Exxon Mobil Corp.'s value peaked in the fall of 2007, when oil prices climbed toward $100 a barrel. In November of that year, PetroChina Co. briefly became the first global company with a market capitalization of more than $1 trillion. Apple's revenue grew in the most recent fiscal quarter even as iPhone unit...

Apple buys the Beddit sleep tracking hardware/...

Beddit, known for its sleep tracking hardware and software, has been scooped up by Apple. The deal was quietly announced through an update to Beddit's privacy policy — as noted by AppleInsider.

Users were alerted to the change when Beddit updated its iOS app. The alert says: “Beddit has been acquired by Apple. Your personal data will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Apple Privacy Policy.”

Beddit's $149.95 3 Sleep Monitor (pictured) automatically tracks your sleep and works with the Beddit app on your iPhone or iPad to help you achieve better sleep. It’s completely ambient so there's no need to wear or charge it. The thin, flexible, and soft sensor is purportedly unnoticeable when placed under the sheet on top of the mattress.
