Limited Edition Code Black Drone + HD Camera: Pre-...

We mentioned the Black Hawk Drone with SD camera deal a couple of weeks ago. It sold out almost immediately, and it got a name change to Code Black Drone, but there's a pre-order available for the HD version for just $89, $10 less when it ships (and it will retail for $199 outside of our deal channel). In any event, Code Black Drone is a cool looking quadcopter with an onboard camera, an HD camera in this case. The pre-order deal has only two days left, so if you want one for yourself or as a gift, grab it now.

The overhauled design of iPhone 6 has slowed third party accessory makers to a crawl. We’ve seen a variety of docks and ultra-thin cases from smaller outfits, but name-brand companies are taking an exceptionally long time to bring iPhone 6/Plus accessories to market. Originally released for the iPhone 5/5s, Logitech has retooled its Protection+ case for iPhone 6:

Protection+ for iPhone 6 uses shock-absorbent polymers in each of the corners of the case to better absorb the the force of drops and bumps. This corner protection along with an inner TPR layer and impact channels (seen along the backside), work...

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare - You Won't Need...


Activision Blizzard has released a new entry in the popular Call of Duty series. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition, which was developed by Sledgehammer Games as part of a new three-year development cycle for the franchise, brings the action to the near future with a greater emphasis on the multiplayer experience. However, its worldwide debut was not without controversy. It wasn't about what the game offered -- instead, all the buzz was about what gamers thought they might be missing, namely the Zombies mode.

Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple...

An anonymous reader writes Citing the need to abide by a law combating "gay propaganda," a memorial dedicated to the late Apple founder Steve Jobs has been torn down. This comes on the heels of new CEO Tim Cook coming out as gay. "In Russia, gay propaganda and other sexual perversions among minors are prohibited by law," ZEFS (a Russian group of companies that originally erected the statue) said, noting that the memorial had been "in an area of direct access for young students and scholars". "After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was taken down to abide to the Russian federal law protecting children from information promoting denial of traditional family values."

An Apple-1 from the Computer History Museum.

Seg

On December 11, Christie's Auction House will put up an original Apple-1 Personal Computer, which was sold out of Steve Jobs' Palo Alto, California, garage for $600 back in 1976. Christie's estimates that the computer, sold to Charles Ricketts, is worth between $400,000 and $600,000, “the highest estimate yet for an original Apple-1 offered at auction,” the auction house wrote in a press release.

An Apple-1 specialist was hired by Christie's to see whether the Ricketts Apple-1 had suffered any deterioration. He was able to run “the standard original software program, Microsoft BASIC, and also an original Apple-1 Star Trek game” on the vintage computer. It will be sold along with two...

Critics chafe as Macs send sensitive docs to iCloud...

Representing a potential privacy snare for some users, Mac OS X Yosemite by default uploads documents opened in TextEdit, Preview, and Keynote to iCloud servers, even if the files are later closed without ever having been saved.

The behavior, as noted in an article from Slate, is documented in a Knowledge Base article from December. But it nonetheless came as a surprise to researcher Jeffrey Paul, who said he was alarmed to recently discover a cache of in-progress files he intended to serve as "temporary Post-It notes" that had been silently uploaded to his iCloud account even though he had never intended or wished them to be.

"Apple has taken local files on my computer not stored in iCloud and silently and without my permission uploaded...

Hands On: DragonBox Elements (iOS, Android)

Geometry is often thought of as a branch of mathematics that kids either "get" or "don't get." If children are unable to master the basic Euclidean elements in elementary school, they often struggle with more advanced geometric concepts in middle and high school. This can put them further behind their classmates in subjects like geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. What is a parent to do when their child isn't grasping these important problems? DragonBox Elements by developer WeWantToKnow has offered a creative solution....

The Retina iMac on my desk, driving my pair of 27-inch Thunderbolt monitors.

Lee Hutchinson

I’m at the end of my time with the Retina iMac now that our Senior Applemeister Andrew Cunningham is back from his nuptials. He’ll be finishing up our coverage of the device, but I wanted to touch on a couple of final points with the big Mac before I send it on its way to the East Coast. We’ve received several variations of the same question submitted to our feedback form: does the Retina iMac operate at 60Hz in its native 5120x2880 resolution? And if so, how is that even possible, given that DisplayPort 1.2 doesn’t have the bandwidth to support that resolution and refresh rate?

To answer the first question: yes, the iMac’s display runs at 60Hz, even when driving all 14.7 million pixels of its native 5k resolution. Apple directly verified this when I asked; the company also...

NPR:

Tom Magliozzi, one of public radio’s most popular personalities, died on Monday of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 77 years old.

Tom and his brother, Ray, became famous as “Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers” on the weekly NPR show Car Talk. They bantered, told jokes, laughed and sometimes even gave pretty good advice to listeners who called in with their car troubles.

I don’t know a thing about cars but listened to the show simply because Tom and Ray were so entertaining.

If you have the latest Mac and the latest iPhone or iPad running Apple's latest OSes, and if you have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on, the new Continuity features work like magic. What powers that magic? A wide range of network options, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE), peer-to-peer Wi-Fi, regular local networking, and iCloud/iMessage. Each aspect of Continuity actually picks and chooses from these connectivity options, sometimes using more than one.

We looked at Continuity while both iOS and OS X were in beta. Now that they are out, we've gone back and tested what the released version can accomplish. I think this is a complete list of what the current version of Continuity can do, as well as a couple of similar features that Apple...

The new iPads are out.

That doesn’t stop the rumor mill speculating about the next generation of the tablets.

Per AppleInsider and Macotakara, the latest rumblings surrounding the anticipated release of a larger, education-focused iPad next year suggest the device may touch down with Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 in its crosshairs, sporting a super-slim form factor, enhanced audio, and a slightly more compact 12.2-inch display.

Macotakara has cited its own sources as saying that iPad maker is specifically designing the device to play into the same markets as Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3, but adds that the company may choose to employ a slightly...

Apple Senior Vice President of Retail Angela Ahrendts narrowed down the time frame for the Apple Watch launch: spring 2015, which is later than "early 2015" the company originally said. She shared that tidbit in a video message for retail employees.

The Mac Observer Spin: March is better than July, but not as good as February. It'll be interesting to see if Apple can keep the excitement around Apple Watch going long enough to push through with big sales.

Apple plans Apple University in China, bringing Jobs...


Tim Cook speaking at a conference in China

Apple is seeking to cement its business position in China for the long-term with an expansion of its Cupertino-based Apple University program to the region, according to a person with knowledge of the plans. Apple Vice President and Dean of Apple University Joel Podolny is currently interviewing candidates for a new Dean of Apple University position for China, according to the source.

Started in 2008, Apple University is an extensive and growing program within corporate Apple that trains mid-level employees and managers on the decisions made by Steve Jobs and other key executives throughout the company’s resurgence. Jobs created the program alongside former Yale School of Business Dean Podolny in order to keep the culture of Apple alive well beyond the lifetime of executives key to Apple’s early success.

An iPhone-shaped memorial to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been torn town in Saint Petersberg because current CEO Tim Cook has publicly announced he is gay. The company that funded the memorial, ZEFS, decided to remove the six-foot tall memorial because of Mr. Cook's sexuality, and as a reaction to reports of NSA spying.

The Mac Observer Spin: Tearing down the Saint Petersberg Steve Jobs memorial was a sad move, and shows just how far some people still have to go before they'll be able to accept people simply for who they are.

Defining a Hero: Why It Matters That Apple's...


Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced he is gay. Typically, when a CEO's personal life becomes a major issue, it is a bad thing. I do think this will have an adverse impact on Apple's sales, but I also think it will have a beneficial impact on the world -- and after some soul searching, I applaud Cook's taking this action. I'll share my thoughts about why a CEO doing something both controversial and potentially heroic is a good thing. CEOs often run into trouble when their personal life takes center stage. Steve Jobs was particularly aware of that.

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.

Retry is a maddening retro-styled side-scroller from juggernaut mobile developer Rovio. You may have heard of Finnish developer Rovio before—they created a little franchise called Angry Birds. But since then, they haven’t produced much outside of that original bubble. Retry should reassure critics that the Rovio team is more than just physics puzzle creators enamored with cute birds and pigs.
