Xsan file system uses several logical storages to distribute information. The two main classes of information appear on Xsan: the user data (such as files) and the file system metadata (such as folders, file names, file allocation information and so on). Most configurations use different storages for data and metadata. The file system supports dynamic expansion and distribution of both data and metadata areas.

Xsan is based on the StorNext File System made by Quantum Corporation.[2] The StorNext File System and the Xsan file system share the same file system layout and the same protocol when talking to the meta data server. They also seem to share a common code base or very close development based on the new features developed for both file systems.

Apple Figures Out Where Steve Jobs Got It Wrong

My big takeaway last week, when Apple launched the iPad Pro, was this: Apple just admitted Bill Gates was right and Steve Jobs was wrong. You see, years ago Steve Jobs went on about how the early Windows tablet, which was designed for work and had a stylus, was stupid. Steve was not a fan and pretty much dissed the entire tablet idea and then again dissed the whole idea of a stylus when he launched the iPhone. Well, Tim Cook effectively gave Jobs a royal raspberry with the iPad Pro, which is basically the Apple version of the Windows tablet.

Xcode’s iOS simulator reports 2GB RAM for iPhone 6S...

Developer Hamza Sood built a demo app that would display the amount of memory reported by difference iDevice simulators.

Hamza Sood

Apple doesn't talk much about its SoCs beyond basic "chip X is Z percent faster than chip Y" comparisons—this is unfortunate, since Apple's new chips are typically as fast or faster than the best high-end chips from Qualcomm and Intel when they're released. One place where Apple has historically been stingy, though, is RAM. Even last year's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus shipped with 1GB of memory, at a time when comparable Android phones were shipping with 2 or 3GB.

That may be changing for the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, according to some sleuthing by developer...

Xcode confirms 2 GB RAM for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s...

Hamza Sood has cleverly used asset catalogs with the Xcode 7 GM to confirm the rumors around the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro RAM specifications. It confirms that the iPhone 6s has 2 GB of RAM, up from 1 GB in the iPhone 6, and the iPad Pro has 4 GB RAM, a 100% increase from the 2 GB in the iPad Air 2’s A8X chip.

Not much of a surprise but Xcode confirms 2GB of RAM for the 6s (and 6s plus), and 4GB for the iPad Pro

Opinion: It’s time to give movies and TV shows the...

I don’t plan on subscribing to Apple Music when my free trial of the service runs out. It’s not really something I care to pay $10 a month for. I’m not an avid music listener; I sometimes put some hip hop on in the car, but that’s about it. For me, paying $10 every month for access to a large library of music that I don’t plan to use to the fullest extent just isn’t worth it, and I prefer to own what music I do listen to.

I also hate the idea of subscription software, like Adobe’s current Creative Cloud offering. Like my music, I’d rather own my software outright than pay a monthly fee to have access to it. The same is true for just about every other subscription service that’s out there.

So it might surprise you to find out that I think Apple should get into the TV and movie subscription business. What’s more, I’d be willing to pay every single month for access to that service. Why the difference of opinion on this topic? Keep reading and find out.

Can We Trust Apple To Make a Good Games Console?

An anonymous reader writes: The Apple TV took center stage at the company's recent press event. It's getting its own operating system, better support for watching movies and listening to music, and full integration with Siri. All to be expected. But Apple is also pushing for the device to become a hub connecting mobile gaming with your TV. This article questions whether Apple has the chops to become a serious contender in living room gaming. Quoting: "[T]he subtext was clear: Apple thinks it can take on Nintendo for third place in the console market. The problem is, even while it's parading game developers on stage, it's still not clear if Apple actually wants to take on the console market. The inconsistency within the company when it comes to games is painful to see, and shows no sign of abating any time soon. ... The iPhone is the largest games store on the planet, and it's managed by a company whose attitude to the medium is 'go write a book.' That hasn't stopped magnificent art...

Thoughts on the cost of an iPhone

Like clockwork, once a year around this time I join a lot of other Apple geeks in pre-ordering the latest and greatest iPhone. I'm happy with my iPhone 6 Plus, but since I do a lot of photography with my phone -- some of it rivalling or surpassing what can be accomplished with a DSLR -- I wanted to upgrade again.  

I didn't go for Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program, simply because it looked like I would actually have to leave the house and drive to an Apple Store on pickup day, and I didn't feel like hassling with AT&T on changing my plan. For a while I thought about dumping AT&T for a carrier that would pay off my contract to switch, in particular T-Mobile. But instead I finally went the easy but expensive route of purchasing the device outright with "no contract required". 

That got me thinking about how much the iPhone actually costs me each year. In this case, opting for a 64GB iPhone 6s Plus at $849 is counterbalanced a bit by the $330 (or more) I will get...

Rose Gold a hot seller as iPhone 6s preorders start

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus preorders started early Saturday morning, and as usual throngs flocked to Apple’s website to reserve theirs as soon as possible. Despite some reported website glitches, however, customers snapped up the new rose gold iPhone models quickly, pushing shipment dates back for several 6s and 6s Plus configurations.

According to MacRumors, shipping times for 64GB and 128GB Rose Gold 6s Plus models for T-Mobile “slipped to 2-3 weeks very soon after pre-orders began.” A quick look at Apple’s online ordering page for the iPhone Saturday morning suggested that iPhone 6s Plus models are harder to come by than standard 6s models. Most iPhone 6s Plus models won’t ship for at least 2-3 weeks as of this writing, while the lead time for for many Rose Gold 6s Plus configurations now sits at 3-4 weeks.

How, when, and where to preorder the iPhone 6s and...

It seems like just yesterday that Apple announced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus with 3D Touch, 12-megapixel iSight cameras, and Live Photos. Oh, wait, it was the day before yesterday. Well preorders for the pair of phones begin tonight (or, on the East Coast, very, very early in the morning). We hope you don’t have to work on Saturday.

Apple’s website isn’t the only place you can preorder a new phone. The Apple Store app for iOS is often a faster and smoother way to place an order, in our experience, and Apple recommends that route, too. The major four carriers are also fighting to help you buy an iPhone (and sign up for one of their wireless plans). Usually big-box retailers like Best Buy and Target are on board with early orders, but for now they only have “coming soon” landing pages.

5 things Apple really got right in Apple TV 4’s tvOS...

Apple TV’s user interface has been through more changes over the past 8 years than any other Apple OS — the rare Apple UI that has seen more major changes than the devices it runs on. As improbable as this might have seemed for a “hobby,” fixing the Apple TV was one of the last topics Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs discussed with biographer Walter Isaacson: “I finally cracked it,” Jobs said about an upcoming Apple TV UI. “It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine,” apparently indicating that complex remotes would be a thing of the past. But after Jobs passed away, the Apple TV received only a couple of modest tweaks — improvements, but modest nonetheless — as Jobs’ mysterious “simplest UI” apparently remained unused.

Netflix Move Prompts Premature Antivirus Software...

Netflix reportedly is in the process of dumping its antivirus software and placing all its faith in an alternative solution to protect its more than 60 million subscribers from online nastiness, a move that prompted one pundit to pronounce the death of antivirus software yet again. Such dire pronouncements have been made for years, and they're likely to be made for many years to come. "Antivirus persists, so I think calling it dead is not prudent," said Jason Brvenik, the principal engineer in Cisco's Security Business Group.

As Apple plans major AirPlay overhaul for iOS 9...

While Apple hasn’t detailed the changes publicly, the company is planning what appears to be a major, undocumented overhaul of its AirPlay protocol with iOS 9 that should make the framework for streaming video and audio content between devices a much smoother experience for both users and developers. It is, however, breaking many screen mirroring apps in the process and forcing developers to scramble to implement workarounds ahead of the launch of iOS 9 on Wednesday and the new Apple TV in the coming weeks.

Perhaps the best example of these apps is...

If you haven’t caught Apple’s September keynote yet or just want an easy way to watch Apple unveil its latest and greatest products, you’re in luck as Apple has now made the stream available on YouTube.

Just two days ago Apple unveiled gold and rose gold Apple Watch Sports, the new Apple Watch Hermes collection, new Sport and Classic Buckle straps, the 12.9″ iPad Pro and an updated iPad mini 4, the all new Apple TV and tvOS, and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Not to be outdone by iOS 9.1’s set of new emoji, watchOS 2 GM, released this past Wednesday following Apple’s press event, includes a little surprise of it’s own. Alongside a bunch of new watch face colors, dig into the animated emoji offered on the Apple Watch, and you’ll find 26 new options, ranging from faces sporting sunglasses, to sick faces, and even a few sets of clapping and fist bumping hands. Check out the gallery below to see them all in action:

Hermès‎, Apple Watch and corporate branding on Apple...

Many people are freaking out over the Hermès‎ Apple Watch, as if it were the first time a non-Apple corporate logo had appeared on a consumer product. "Can you even imagine Steve Jobs approving of a Hermes-branded 'Apple' Watch?", Brian S. Hall asked on Twitter. Yes, actually. Because much stranger partnerships have happened. 

The HP iPod

The HP-branded iPod was announced in January of 2004 at CES. Initially available as a 4th generation iPod, the iPod+HP shipped with an HP logo on the back and was distributed and supported by HP (Apple did not support the iPod+HP). Eventually, HP-branded iPod photo, shuffle and mini were available. It was discontinued in...

Sprint and T-Mobile remind you about their iPhone 6s...

If you’re looking to pick up an iPhone 6s for less than its $650 suggested price, Sprint and T-Mobile are eager to help.

Both wireless carriers are leasing the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with monthly installment plans that are cheaper than those of AT&T and Verizon. They’ll also save you money over Apple’s new installment plan .

Here’s how it all breaks down:

T-Mobile Jump On Demand

With T-Mobile’s iPhone 6s deal, you pay $20 per month for the hardware with no money down, or $24 per month for the iPhone 6s Plus. After 18 months, you can either give the phone back to T-Mobile, or pay another $164 to buy the phone outright. (This would bring the total payment to $524, which is still $125 cheaper than full price). Either way, you’re free to leave T-Mobile at that point. You can also sign up for a new...

Storm8's chief strategy officer is keen on iOS...

Terence Fung, chief strategy officer at the Storm8 mobile gaming network, is predicting big things for iOS 9 and the new Apple TV.

He told AppleWorld.Today that iOS 9's ReplayKit is a "great move" for Apple. Games can leverage ReplayKit to record video of their content, and allow the user to quickly edit the video within the app and share it online.

With ReplayKit, developers will be able to offer users the ability to screen record gameplay or other apps automatically or manually with a single tap. Users will then be able to share recorded content through an iOS share sheet directly to social networks and video sharing sites. Apple pauses all incoming notifications and anything that might ruin the gameplay video experience, and only users will have access to the recorded videos.

"ReplayKit is another...

iOS 9.1 beta brings a taco emoji to iPhones at long...

iOS 9 isn’t even officially out, but already Apple is seeding the iOS 9.1 beta to developers and the public. The most exciting new feature by far is new emojis, including a taco, burrito, cheese wedge, unicorn, and a middle finger.

And it’s about time. If emojis are eventually going to replace words as our preferred communication mode, they need to get more expressive. We need more food types, more hand gestures, and more animals to fully convey our emotions. (Still no avocado though—what gives?)

OK, OK, so maybe you’re not into emoji. The iOS 9.1 beta also brings support for the iPad Pro’s Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, plus the ability to provide Siri with voice examples so she always understands you....

Poll: With preorders starting tomorrow, what iPhone...

Preorders for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus start tomorrow 12:01 AM PT with general availability from September 25th, so its time to decide what size, color and storage capacity you will be buying for this iPhone generation. The iPhone 6s features 3D Touch pressure sensitivity, an upgraded 12 megapixel camera, 4K video recording, Live Photos, a faster A9 chip, improved Touch ID and more. Like last year, the difference between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus is the larger screen (5.5 inch versus 4.7 inch) and the inclusion of optical image stabilization on the larger model.

The iPhone 6s costs $199 for 16 GB, 64 GB for $299 and 128 GB for $399 on contract, with the iPhone 6s Plus $100 more at each level. New for this year is a rose gold option, so that’s another choice to consider alongside silver, space gray and gold. With that in mind, what iPhone are...

Opinion: Does the iPhone 6s justify an upgrade from...

A few weeks prior to the launch of the iPhone 6s, I wondered whether an S model could really continue the blockbuster sales success Apple enjoyed with the iPhone 6. Based on what we knew then, it seemed like it might be a tough sell. And at the time, it seems many of you felt the same way: in our poll, only 29% of iPhone 6 owners said they would ‘definitely’ upgrade.

But my view now is that Apple may have...

NuStand 360 for the iPad is useful but outdated

If you're like me and are still holding on to your first generation iPad then the NuStand 360 by NewerTech is for you. Though I was a skeptic at first, it only took a few minutes after taking the NuStand 360 out of the box to realize the benefits this stand can offer. 

There is some simply assembly using only using one screw (and a screwdriver is included), then popping on the silicone blocks that correspond with your generation of iPad. After assembly the only thing left to do is snap in your Apple tablet and enjoy. 

I can see the benefits of the NuStand 360 in an office setting, but the NewStand 360 shouldn't be limited to a desk. In fact, the NewStand 360 is the perfect stand for using your iPad in the kitchen. 

The kitchen is where my iPad lives. However, I am constantly irritated with the botched angles and flimsy support of other stands. The NuStand 360's...

This could be interesting.

A number of users who had the chance to test the first public beta of iOS 9.1 on Thursday, along with the GM version on Wednesday, have stated that the operating system allows for a set-up process for voice customization with Siri. A new “Hey Siri” feature coming to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, thanks to a built-in M9 motion coprocessor, enables the phones’ always-on functionality.

Although unconfirmed by Apple, the discovery in iOS 9.1 suggests that Siri will be able to begin detecting specific user voices and determine whether or not the owner of the iPhone in question is...

In addition, others on social media also indicated that Bank of Scotland is supporting Apple Pay as of Friday. No official announcement has been made from any of the three banks, nor Apple.

Apple Pencil could be a big hit — or the next Ping

Several folks are poking fun at the Apple Pencil, an US$99 stylus Apple has made for the upcoming iPad Pro. Is our favorite tech company onto something or will the Pencil disappear in quiet ignominy like Ping, the ill-fated, software-based, music-oriented social networking and recommender system?

After all, when Steve Jobs first announced the iPhone in 2007, he asked the audience: "Who wants a stylus?" Then he answered: "Nobody wants a stylus, so let's not use a stylus."

Collective intelligence company, Unanimous A.I. ( gathered a group of male and female smartphone and Apple users together to use their collective knowledge on the topic to forecast the success of the Apple Pencil. Their verdict — which they kindly shared with AppleWorld.Today —  is that it will be a flop this year. ...

Siri causes laughter when it interrupts White House...

We’ve all accidentally activated Siri at one time or other, but one journalist managed to do so at a particularly embarrassing time: while a question was being asked during a White House press briefing.

Siri did, though, manage a rather apt response to the question, which was about President Obama’s failure to persuade Republicans in Congress to sign an agreement about Iran.

I’m sorry, I’m not sure what you want me to change.
