Displaymate tests find plausible, reflectance-based...

If you were ever wondering why the iPhone lacked a much-anticipated sapphire coating, the answer comes down to reflectance.

Per Raymond Soneira, Displaymate has published tests results concerning sapphire’s reflectance on assorted devices, the numbers standing for themselves.

According to the tests, the new iPad Air returned a result of 2.5 percent screen reflectance, the lowest that’s been measured by the citing, making it extremely unlikely that Apple will ever use Sapphire, with its 8.0 percent screen reflectance, on future iPhones.

The much lower 2.5 percent reflectance improves screen readability, image contrast, and color saturation in ambient light by almost 2:1 over the best existing mobile displays, a major innovation and enhancement for mobile displays that are almost always used in...

Apple may have gotten a pretty quick leg up in the NFC market.

Per AppleInsider and the Wall Street Journal, Apple CEO Tim Cook, in a recent interview today, stated that Apple Pay received more than one million registrations within the first 72 hours.

“The early ramp [of Apple Pay] looks fantastic,” Cook said in an interview with WSJ managing editor Gerry Baker.

Cook referred to recent revelations that Merchant Consumer Exchange retailers like Rite Aid and CVS are now blocking Apple Pay, characterizing the situation as a “skirmish” that will ultimately be decided by consumers “over...

Twitter is a public company now, which means it’s beholden to shareholders who may not use or even understand the service. Those shareholders get scared by numbers that don’t mean much to the average Twitter user, like monthly actives and ad revenue per timeline view.

The social network reported its third-quarter earnings on Monday, and at first glance, everything looks great. Twitter is definitely making money: The company pulled in $361 million, up 114 percent year-over-year. Ad revenue is up. Timeline views are up. More users gravitated to the network. But Wall Street isn’t happy. Twitter continues to add new users at a snail’s pace—just 13 million worldwide last quarter, and only 3 million of those newbies are in the U.S. Timeline views per monthly active user slid 7 percent to 636 views, and Twitter expects that...

The fate of iPhone's sapphire screen looks...

New iPhones with scratch-resistant sapphire glass seemed like a sure bet just a couple of months ago, but a new analysis suggests that new screen material was always a long shot.

As DisplayMate's Raymond Soneira wrote, sapphire isn't just expensive and difficult to manufacture. It also has nearly double the reflectance of glass, making the screen harder to read in bright sunlight. It's also a brittle substance that's more prone to shattering than glass, despite its scratch resistance.

Xsan with NetStor NA381TB

Forums: Hardware

Good Evening.
I would like to understand the possibility to build a low cost Xsan system using an hardware chassis called NetStor NA381TB
You can see a presentation of the item here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuqfVN_bliI

As you can see, with a MacMini and a thunderbolt connection, i can have up to 96TB storage in Raid, using an Areca card.

My question is the following:

Until today i've always used fibre channel switches (Qlogic or Brocade).
If i mount 1 or 2 atto FC card (dual or quad port), can i build an Xsan system with 4 or 8 clients connecting directly the optical cables from the Fibre Channel cards of the chassis to the clients?

Thank you very much for your time

#BREAKING: FTC sues @ATT for deceptive & unfair data throttling (promising unlimited data & then slowing speeds).

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has announced that it is suing AT&T for “deceptive and unfair data throttling”. The FTC’s announcement seems to target AT&T’s practice of lowering data transfer speeds for customers with unlimited data plans versus customers with tiered data plans now offered. From the FTC’s press release:

“AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances, it has failed to deliver on that promise,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. “The issue here is simple: ‘unlimited’ means unlimited...

4 key takeaways (and 1 non-news tidbit) from Apple...

Apple doesn't make a habit of revealing major news at other company's conferences, but that doesn't mean Tim Cook's appearance at WSJD Live had nothing noteworthy to speak of.

A solid-sounding start for Apple Pay

Apple's new payments service launched on October 20, and Cook said users activated 1 million credit cards in the the first 72 hours. The number sounds impressive, and Cook said the early ramp-up looked “fantastic,” but keep in mind that Apple sold 39 million iPhones...

The network opened its Twitter kit to developers ahead of launching Fabric last week. Already tens of thousands of developers around the world are using the tools, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said during Monday’s third-quarter earnings call. Early launch partners are putting the new tools to good use, reaching more than a billion iOS and Android users already, Costolo said. So...

There’s new Apple hardware out, and the people at iFixit are once again doing what they do best: disassembling the living crap out of it and posting pictures. This time, they’ve carefully torn down a new Retina iMac into its component pieces, and the images are illuminating.

The Retina iMac’s construction is essentially identical to the previous non-Retina iMac. There are no screws here: the thin aluminum body is glued to the display with a long strip of custom-cut adhesive. Prying that away gives you access to the machine’s internals, but then you’re left with the conundrum of how to get the machine back together when you’re done—the factory adhesive strip isn’t very reusable once it’s been removed...

The report says that the iPad Air 2 costs Apple $275 in materials, with the screen making up the largest share with costs around $77.

This culminates to a very similar bill-of-materials to the last iPad Air, which IHS estimated was worth $264 in components. This leads to an implied profit margin of 45 percent, but obviously there are more things that have to be accounted for than parts alone...

We write reviews when a great new app comes out, but there are also older ones that we think worthy of recommendation, and How to Cook Everything is one of those.

I’m a decent enough cook, but not an instinctive one: I follow recipes to the letter. If it says to put something in the oven at 170 degrees for 15 minutes, you’ll find me carefully setting the dial and starting a timer, not casually spinning the dial to roughly the right temperature and glancing in ten minutes later to decide that’s good enough.

But there are times when first I need to decipher exactly what the instructions mean. What’s the technical difference between dicing and chopping? Is sautéing the same thing as frying? And what exactly does it mean when it says ‘prepare the chiles’?

If you find yourself empathising with these types of questions, How to Cook Everything may just be the...

Apple’s annual report, filed today, confirmed the obvious: music sales through its iTunes Store have declined. The company did not give a figure, noting only that the drop was more than compensated for by growth in app sales, but a recent WSJ report put the decline as high as 14%.

Growth in net sales from the iTunes Store was driven by increases in revenue from app sales reflecting continued growth in the installed base of iOS devices and the expanded offerings of iOS Apps and related in-App purchases. This was partially offset by a decline in sales of digital music.

The fall in music downloads was of course the primary motivation behind the company’s largest acquisition, the purchase of...

The Retina iMac and its 5K display…as a gaming...

"What's gaming like on the retina iMac, Mother?" "PRODUCING 4K SCREENSHOT TO DEMONSTRATE."

A few weeks ago, Apple updated its iMac desktop line with "Retina" displays—an Apple marketing term used to denote LCDs with a pixel density high enough that individual display elements are invisible to the unaided eye at typical viewing distances. On Apple’s iPhones, the "Retina" moniker means a PPI of at least 300; for MacBook Pro portables, it means about 220. The new iMac’s 27" 5120x2880 LCD panel has a PPI of 218, putting it just below the 15" MacBook Pro’s 220 PPI.

Those numbers translating into a stunning screen is unsurprising, and now that I’ve got one on my desk to play with, I’ll absolutely add my voice to the chorus of other reviewers saying that the new iMac looks amazing. I haven’t yet attached a colorimeter to the display and gone to town—that’s coming in the next few days—but here’s the color space information right out of the box:...

I purchased a Samsung 4K television (a UN65F9000) for our family room and was super-excited to buy a late-2014 Mac mini (Macmini7,1, model A1347) to complete our entertainment center. The problem is that the Mac mini’s anemic GPU can’t drive a 4K display at a fast enough refresh rate to play smooth video, which is a bummer.

I’ve used a Mac mini connected to a 1080p panel in my living room for years, and it’s always worked great. A Mac mini is great in a media center computer, there’s nothing like having a real web browser for watching live streams and video podcasts and VLC media player is the de facto standard for playing every video CODEC known to mankind.

Microsoft copying more trackpad gestures from OS X...

Microsoft has had a great idea for making the next version of Windows better for power users: copy more trackpad gestures from OS X … 

The Verge pointed us to a Windows 10 keynote demo at TechEd Europe, where Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore introduced the innovative new idea.

With Windows 10 we’re adding support for power users in a touch pad, where multiple finger gestures — which all of you power users learn — can make you really efficient.

Among the gestures demonstrated were exposing the desktop, which Microsoft does with three fingers down, in place of OS X’s thumb and finger spread; swiping between full-screen apps (three fingers instead of the default four in OS X); and Mission Control– sorry, Task Viewer (again, three...

First look: Apple iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3

Apple is heading into the holiday season with what it says is its "strongest holiday product line up ever." The arrival of the new iPads certainly helps to underscore the point. Most expected that Apple would bring the popular Touch ID feature to both models, while processor upgrades were also in the cards. With leaks increasingly taking some of the surprise out of Apple's product launches, it still managed to keep a few things secret until it took the wraps off the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3....

Hands On: Elegy for a Dead World (OS X, Windows)

Elegy for a Dead World is a collaborative effort from Dejobaan Games and Popcannibal that aims to challenge the normal conventions used to define video games. Crowdfunded successfully--including being a Kickstarter Staff Pick--the game itself raised a little over $72,000 or about 150 percent of their goal. They did it by promising to produce a game unlike anything players have seen before. This mentality has not gone unnoticed, earning the game accolades at such industry events as Independent Games Festival 2014, Game Developer Conference, and IndieCade....

Ma noted during his own interview at the WSJD conference this evening that Alipay has grown to become the third-largest payment system in the world behind Visa and MasterCard. When questioned about whether Apple...

Apple CEO Tim Cook clarified the recent decision to quietly remove the iPod classic from sale earlier this year during a talk tonight at Wall Street Journal’s WSJD Live conference. According to the executive, some parts needed to manufacture the device were no longer available, and the cost of engineering a new version that didn’t require those parts wasn’t worth the effort due to low user demand.

The device vanished without a mention from Apple’s website last month...

T-Mobile CEO John Legere said tonight during a talk at Re/code’s Code/Mobile conference that demand for the iPhone 6 Plus was higher than was originally anticipated, with the larger model grabbing about 45% of orders. He said initial expectations put demand somewhere in the ballpark of 20-25%.

This unexpected level of demand may have contributed to the supply problems may customers have experienced, and Legere says it will still be a while before iPhone shipments are able to meet demand again.

Legere also said that only about 100,000 people took advantage of the carrier’...

Stand back, people! It's dangerous! The embers, of course, had been hot for some time already before the blaze flared sky-high a few months ago. Now, the conflagration appears to be completely out of control. Need proof? Two words: Debian fork.

Fan Mockup Shows Apple Watch Interface for iPhone

Lucas Menge has put together an amazing mockup of what the Apple Watch interface might look like if it was brought to the iPhone. In addition to posting a video to YouTube (below the fold) demonstrating the concept, he posted source code to GitHub (via TechCrunch). The video shows how one could use the interface to browse your apps, zoom in and out of all those icons, and launch apps, too. In addition, he also used the increased screen size of his iPhone to add text labels for each icon, something left off the Apple Watch in the preliminary looks Apple has given us. It's very cool and makes you think about what might be coming down the pike from Cupertino.

The first issue was that of racial equality and his admiration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s efforts to promote equal treatment for all.

Cook moved on to slam the state of Alabama, saying that “our state and our nation still have a long way to go before Dr. King’s dream is a reality.” He said that Alabama specifically had taken “too long” to begin making changes and that its...

Paris / New York

Vimeo:

Paris & NY, like many large cities, have a lot in common ; transport, infrastructure, national monuments. I wanted to explore not only these comparisons but also the differences, in order to expose the beauty and individuality of each. What you cannot deny is the vibrancy and explosion of character each city has and I thought split-screen with timelapse would be a good way to help convey this.

Turns out, it’s an ad for British Airways but it’s still a fun thing to watch especially when you consider the effort that had to go into pre- and post-production.

But does he cheat a little bit at the end with the “LOVE” sculpture? Isn’t that in Philadelphia?
