Customers wait in line outside Maxfield in Los Angeles (via CNET)

Despite the fact that Apple’s own retail stores won’t be carrying the Apple Watch on launch day, a handful of boutiques across the world will get a few models to sell starting tomorrow. Customers have already started lining up outside these locations in the hopes of getting their hands on one of the few launch-day watches available to the public.

Researcher Discloses Methods For Bypassing All OS X...

Trailrunner7 writes: For years, Apple has enjoyed a pretty good reputation among users for the security of its products. That halo has been enhanced by the addition of new security features such as Gatekeeper and XProtect to OS X recently, but one researcher said that all of those protections are simple to bypass and gaining persistence on a Mac as an attacker isn't much of a challenge at all. Gatekeeper is one of the key technologies that Apple uses to prevent malware from running on OS X machines. It gives users the ability to restrict which applications can run on their machines by choosing to only allow apps from the Mac App Store. With that setting in play, only signed, legitimate apps should be able to run on the machine. But Patrick Wardle, director of research at Synack, said that getting around that restriction is trivial. "Gatekeeper doesn't verify an extra content in the apps. So if I can find an Apple-approved app and get it to load external content, when the user runs...

ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Battery: $49.99

Here's a deal on a killer gadget called ZeroLemon SolarJuice-it's a 20,000mAh portable charger for your iPhone, iPad, or Android devices, and you can charge it using the on-board 1.2W solar panels. I think that's super cool. 20,000mAh is a ton of power, enough to charge your iPhone 6 more than seven times. If that's not enough, it has a built-in LED flashlight. This thing retails for $100, which is a good price, but through our deal you can get it for $49.99.

Take Your Apple Watch Face and Love It!


Apple is known for fantastic product design, but it's not known for customization. The first iPhone hit the world nearly eight years ago, and yet our "customizable" home screen options are limited to the organization of app icons and some wallpaper choices that can produce color tints through translucent layers. So all of us future Apple Watch owners likely will have to settle for a handful of Apple-developed watch faces. I've been hoping for months that Apple would let third-party designers rethink how to show time through watch faces.

YouTube Marks 10 Years of Nondisruptive Revolution


YouTube on Thursday celebrated its first full decade. It was 10 years ago to the day that cofounder Jawed Karim uploaded the site's first video. It was a humble beginning: a 19-second clip of elephants, with Karim declaring that the pachyderms have "really, really long trunks." In fairness, it may have been in keeping with other notable firsts. In speaking for the first time on a telephone, Alexander Graham Bell said, "Mr. Watson -- come here -- I want to see you." Thomas Edison's first phonographic recording was "Mary had a little lamb."

Throwback Thursday: Apple QuickTake 100

APPLE QUICKTAKE 100 DIGITAL CAMERA. PHOTO ©2015, STEVEN SANDE

We decided to pass on the Wearables Wednesday column yesterday since you’re all probably getting your fill of a certain wearable, but there’s definitely time for a Throwback Thursday.

Today, rather than showing you some of those old Mac magazine ads and articles, I’m showing you one of the favorite toys in my “Museum of Antique Technology” — the Apple QuickTake 100 digital camera.

This camera was first introduced to the public in 1994, and I recall being thrilled by it when Apple took photos of WWDC attendees and printed out MacWorld Magazine covers with our pictures on them. Between the slowness of transferring the images to the Mac and the dreadful crawl of the color printer they were using, it took well over an hour to pick up my photo…

The QuickTake 100 is widely believed to be the first successful consumer digital camera,...

Review: Zagg Pocket Keyboard

Zagg's Pocket Keyboard ($70) is a foldable Bluetooth keyboard designed for use with smartphones and small tablets, such as iPhones and iPad minis. A small ledge flips out to hold the device during use; though as a Bluetooth keyboard it could conceivably be used with a larger iPad, the keyboard ledge won't accommodate an iOS device that large. According to Zagg, Pocket Keyboard takes up more than 85 percent of a desktop keyboard's typing space. The tri-fold keyboard charges using an included micro-USB cable — Zagg makes no claims regarding expected battery life.{/exp:char_limit}

How to get your Apple Watch tracking number from UPS...

This tweet from Adam Christianson gave me hope, however.

Hands on: Phorm takes the awkwardness out of thumb-...

The Phorm case, from Tactus, adds a tactile layer to the software keyboard when you’re holding your iPad mini in portrait mode and engage the switch on the back—supposedly being able to “feel” the keys will make it easier to type.

Yeah, right, I thought.

I admit it, I was skeptical. I pictured bulging bubbles right on top of each letter, having to mash those bubbles with my thumbs, and seeing my iPad mini’s battery life suffer, because of course a case with an on/off switch requires power, right?

Wrong. I was wrong about all of it.

First of all, Phorm uses no power. The switch on the back is purely mechanical. The case, which completely encloses your iPad mini without adding too much bulk or weight, has a thin, double-layered membrane over the screen, and a tiny reservoir built in to the side of the case that holds a small amount of liquid. The switch on the back is...

Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit of Skycure are working with Apple for a fix; but, for now, the only workaround is to simply not be in range of such a malicious network.

You can learn how to perform Digital Touch, customize your watch face, set up Apple Pay, configure the activity tracker, and a lot more. There’s also information on how to properly clean the bands. If you bought an...

Four things we'll hear about the Apple Watch...

Now that the shipment notices have made it out to the pre-order crowd and we're all anxiously following the progress of our Apple Watches from Harrisburg, PA (or wherever...) it's time to set some expectations. Based on past rollouts of new, groundbreaking Apple products, this is what we'll probably hear a lot of this weekend on websites and social networks:

1) "The battery life on the Apple Watch is awful!"

Of course it is, when you're trying to load every known Apple Watch app in existence and have been fiddling with the Force Touch screen and Digital Crown ever since you took it out of the box. Trust me; when I got my first Newton MessagePad back in 1993, I obsessed over trying to get it to understand my handwriting. I went through AAA batteries like they were peanut M&Ms. Later, when I began using the device like it was designed to be used -- like a note-taking tool, calendar, and address book -- my battery life seemed more reasonable.

World Happiness Report ranks Canada 5th

CBC News:

Canadians are a relatively happy bunch — the fifth happiest in the world, according to new data from the 2015 World Happiness Report released Thursday.

The report issues a score on a scale of zero to 10 based on Gallup World Poll data collected from people in more than 150 countries between 2012 and 2014.

Researchers then analyze the “life evaluation” data to rank countries, ostensibly providing a comparative overview of people’s “subjective well-being” in each.

For all of our myriad problems and issues, Canada is still a great country. Read the story for the list of the top five and where the US placed in the report – both very interesting.

The phone wouldn't install the update, and connecting it to iTunes presented error 53 when trying to update the phone. After that, the phone entered a reboot loop, which rendered it unusable. Error 53 isn't mentioned in Apple's list of numerical error codes, and Genius Bar employees also seem unaware of it. So far, the only fix has been to replace the phone.

We’ve been bombarded by the images and ideas of the Apple Watch transforming the way we communicate and use apps in our daily lives, whether it’s receiving notifications on our wrists, paying for coffee, or interacting with loved ones. So much emphasis has been put on the Apple Watch as an essential part of our everyday routine, yet for many of us, there’s something we do all the time on our phones that has barely been shown in marketing materials: Play games.

Yes, games: Of course there will be games for the Apple Watch, and from our conversations with creators, developers are excited about the opportunity to develop for a wearable device. “Entertainment apps are important in addition to utilitarian ones, reminding users that the device is fun as well as functional,” says Mathieu Nouzareth, co-founder and CEO of FreshPlanet, which is bringing iOS puzzler BoxPop to Apple Watch.

Website, Google Doc crowd-sourcing Apple Watch orders

If you’re breathlessly refreshing Apple’s order status page in an attempt to figure out if your Apple Watch will arrive on Friday, take a breather.

Tracking one’s Apple Watch order has turned into a national pastime here in the U.S. as eager pre-orderers try to figure out if they’re in the first first batch of Apple watches set to arrive in two short days. Apple’s “We’re working on your order” email, sent earlier this evening to some customers, has brought things to a fevered pitch.

An aside: It’s curious that Apple doesn’t use Touch ID to authenticate users of its Apple Store app attempting...

Unpacking Apple’s ‘We’re working on your order’ email

We’re not sure what they mean yet, but Apple just sent out an email that says “We’re working on your order” to many people that pre-ordered an Apple Watch.

The email’s subject line begins with “Your Apple Watch Order” followed by your order number and looks like this:

I received the email above at 8:02 p.m. PT this evening, but there’s no rhyme or reason to it, unless it means bad news.

I ordered three Apple watches on April 10 and haven’t received an email for the earliest two orders:

  • 42mm Sport (Space Gray) – ordered at 12:11 am – status: “Processing Items”
  • 38mm Sport (White) – ordered at 12:12 a.m. – status: “Preparing for...

Android Wear’s Low-Power Ambient Mode

Josh Lowensohn, writing for The Verge on Google’s latest update to Android Wear:

Two other changes Google’s made in the update impact what you see
on screen, and how you interact with it. One is a new low-power
mode for the screen when you’re not actively looking at it. It
allows apps to ambiently display just a minimal amount of data,
usually in black and white, without a gesture to turn the screen
on. Google already does this for your watch face, but is opening
up the feature for apps too. This is especially useful for things
like shopping lists, fitness apps, and music controls, Chang says.
Developers will now be able to tweak how often the information you
see gets updated in the low-power mode, but it could ultimately
mean less fiddling.

This is a significant difference between Android Wear and Apple...

The era of Apple Watch notifications tapping on our wrists is almost upon us, and with it will come the inevitable rush from some developers to annoy the crap of us. Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet urge them to not mistake what they want us to know for what we want to know. They also look at Samsung's seeming fall from lofty heights in the smartphone market, and they discuss some of the cool looking Apple Watch apps already available.

Apple notifying early Apple Watch pre-order...

In an email blast sent out this evening, Apple has began notifying early Apple Watch pre-order customers of their order progress with a vague message that reads “we’re working on your order.” The email appears to only be sent to pre-order customers with first wave April 24th to May 8th delivery dates that have not yet been charged and have orders still processing, suggesting recipients should not expect launch day deliveries.

Earlier this week Apple began charging some pre-order customers as orders updated from processing to preparing for shipment. While it’s unclear until Friday, it seems to email blast is targeted toward customers that have launch day delivery ranges that haven’t seen order updates and likely won’t see Friday deliveries.

Google Goes Wireless with Project Fi

Google announced Project Fi on Wednesday, dipping its toes into the wireless carrier business. Project Fi is a U.S.-only service that is built on top of two networks, Sprint and T-Mobile. Google's hook is that devices can use whichever network is strongest, and the company is offering inexpensive and flexible bandwidth pricing-but you'll need to have (or buy) a Nexus 6 to be an early customer.

The Mac Observer Spin: Project Fi is very compelling on a cost-basis, and it's likely to be very competitive in terms of bandwidth. For bonus points, you'll be helping Google fill in what little they don't about what you are doing, where you are going, who you are with, and how you live your life.

The last crop of Apple Watch Guided Tours is ready...

The last of Apple's Watch Guided Tours are now available for your viewing pleasure. The trio of tours cover the standard Apple Pay, Activity, and Workout apps. 

For those of us who use Apple Pay on a regular basis with our iPhones, the process appears to be a bit different. The Watch is brought up to the pay station, the user presses the button on the side of the Watch to display the Apple Pay app, then brings the face of the Watch down to the contactless reader until a beep is heard confirming the transaction. It looks way too easy, and not having to dig a phone out of one's pocket or purse will be a nice touch.

The Activity app is going to be a handy tool for those who don't have a current activity tracker like a Fitbit. The app can be set up to remind you to stand up every so often, and goals can be set based on a calorie goal you wish to reach. All along the way, a circular "meter" showing your...

I didn’t think I needed this setting any more to upload photos to iCloud. Isn’t iCloud Photo Library just supposed to do all that for me? If so, what’s the point…

How to clean out your drawers and do something good...

Apple is committed to environmental responsibility on a corporate level, but what happens to its phones when they land in the hands of customers? Are consumers equally as committed to using and disposing of their devices in a responsible way? If you want to do something good for the Earth today on Earth Day (and beyond), then take a small step by recycling or reusing those old iPhones, iPads and Macs that are not being used. Below we present a few reasons why you should recycle and then explore several ways you can repurpose those older Apple devices. If you have your own ideas, please share them in the comments.

Why Recycle

According to the EPA, mobile phone owners in the US get rid of millions of phones each year. While many are resold on eBay or handed down among friends and family, a large percentage are shuttered in drawers or dropped in the trash can.

These abandoned phones represent a huge loss of...

Review: Adonit Jot Script 2

Adonit's new Jot Script 2 ($75), also referred to as Jot Script 2 — Evernote Edition, is a slightly slimmer version of Adonit's previous Jot Script. Whereas the prior Jot Script used a single AAA battery, Jot Script 2 recharges via an included USB-powered charging dock. According to Adonit, the rechargeable battery should last anywhere from 20 to 50 hours of use, depending on device — it's said to get up to 30 hours of battery life when used with an iPad Air 2, which is the device we used for testing. Indeed, the Bluetooth Jot Script 2 offers full iPad Air 2 functionality, and though the stylus is said to work with any app, Adonit has offered a list of preferred apps to get the best out of Jot Script 2's abilities.{/exp:char_limit}

Glenn and Susie are joined by Jeff Carlson and Joe Kissell to discuss our experiences with Photos. From hidden maps to blown broadband limits, it hasn't been the smoothest of rides so far, but we love the editing features and especially the speed compared to iPhoto. Now Apple just needs to make sharing a little easier to understand, especially for families. (iCloud Photo Library versus iCloud Photo Sharing versus My Photo Stream...little help?)

Man fires 8 gunshots into his Dell

“I just had it,” Lucas Hinch, 38, told The Smoking Gun (via Ars Technica). Apparently the PC had thrown up one too many blue screens of death in recent months, so Hinch took it into an alley, loaded up a 9mm Hi-Point pistol that he’d purchased on Craiglist, and let the bullets fly.

Priceless.

iOS bug sends iPhones into endless crash cycle when...

There's a bug in Apple's iOS 8 that allows nearby attackers to send apps—and in some cases the iPhone or iPad they run on—into an endless reboot cycle that temporarily renders the devices useless, according to researchers who demonstrated the attack Tuesday.

The exploit uses a standard Wi-Fi network that generates a specially designed secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate to exploit the bug, according to the researchers, who work for Israel-based Skycure. The encrypted communication causes whatever apps happen to be connected to the booby-trapped Wi-Fi network to crash. The vulnerability was introduced in version 8 of the Apple mobile operating system.

After sustained connections to the malicious signal, the OS itself will crash, in some cases in a way that causes the devices it runs on to spiral into a repeatable reboot cycle. Making the attack particularly vexing, even if users know the endless crashes are generated by the Wi-Fi network...

The MacBook Review

12-INCH RETINA MACBOOK. PHOTO ©2015, Steven Sande All rights reserved

By this point, you’ve probably read several reviews of the new 12-inch Retina MacBook. The first round were written by reviewers for the major newspapers and magazines, and this second wave is being provided by those of us who spent our own money to purchase one of the machines.

I’m no stranger to spending money out of my own pocket for untested technology. My first Mac was one of the first 512K models, I ordered one of the first MacBook Airs sight unseen, and iPhones and iPads have all been pre-ordered without a clue as to what the actual device will be like. Fortunately, Apple has a good history of delivering solid, if not exactly inexpensive equipment.

I needed a laptop when I heard about the MacBook, since AOL took back my 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro when it shut down TUAW. The timing was right, so I ordered the 12-inch MacBook just after placing...
