Christian Bale said to be 'first choice'...

Director David Fincher is considering Dark Knight and American Hustle star Christian Bale as his "first choice" to lead in Sony's Steve Jobs biopic, says The Wrap. Fincher is alleged to have met with Sony's Amy Pascal recently to discuss the possibility of his directing, but insisted that he would only direct if Bale can play Jobs. Fincher and Pascal previously collaborated on the remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Bale reportedly hasn't been approached yet, but mainly because he's said to be taking time off with family after finishing his role as Moses in Ridley Scott's Exodus....

Flappy Bird May Soar Again


The mobile game Flappy Bird seemed dead and buried, but a tweet from its creator suggests it may yet rise from the ashes -- perhaps not quite like the phoenix. In response to a Twitter user asking whether the game would return to the App Store, Dong Nguyen responded, "Yes. But not soon." Indie developer Nguyen released the game last May, having created it in just a few evenings. It suddenly surged in popularity at the beginning of this year, with many gamers becoming fans of its quirky graphics and simple yet difficult-to-master game play.

Tor Project: Fake Tor App Has Been In Apple's...

itwbennett (1594911) writes "For the past several months Tor developers have unsuccessfully been trying to convince Apple to remove from its iOS App Store what they believe to be a fake and potentially malicious Tor Browser application. According to subsequent messages on the bug tracker, a complaint was filed with Apple on Dec. 26 with Apple reportedly responding on Jan. 3 saying it would give a chance to the app's developer to defend it. More than two months later, the Tor Browser app created by a developer named Ronen is available still in the App Store. The issue came into the public spotlight Wednesday when people involved in the Tor Project took to Twitter to make their concerns heard. Apple did not respond to IDG News Service's request for comment."

Former iOS SVP Scott Forstall demoing Twitter integration at WWDC 2011

While we’re all looking back at our first tweets as Twitter celebrates its eighth birthday with its special First Tweet page, I thought it’d be fun to take a look at Apple executives’ first tweets as well; the only catch is that Apple’s leadership isn’t exactly very social.

While you won’t find Jony Ive talking design or Craig Federighi dropping hints about iOS 8 and OS X, there are a few Apple execs adding to the conversation on Twitter including Tim Cook.

First up is Eddy Cue, Apple’s SVP of Internet Software and Services, who had a rather big announcement for his first tweet in early 2007:

Several inertial sensors built into the unit and camera track the player's orientation and movement. With a twist of a player's head, for instance, the game world rotates to match that perspective in real-time.

Oscar winner Christian Bale is David Fincher’s...

The Wrap is reporting that David Fincher is eyeing Christian Bale as his ‘first choice’ to play Steve Jobs. The Sony movie, written by Aaron Sorkin, is aiming to start filming by the end of the year.

While Steve Jobs is a long way from Batman, Bale has been considered a prime contender to play the tech superhero since the project was first announced due to his physical resemblance to the Apple co-founder.

Bale has not been approached to play Jobs yet, as the actor is taking a brief break from the business to spend time with his family since wrapping the role of Moses in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus.” The Biblical epic is expected to have Bale back in the awards conversation.

Earth Narrowly Missed Solar Blasts in 2012


Enormous solar blasts, which possessed the potential to wreak havoc on electrical grids and satellites, barely missed Earth in 2012. The near-misses, revealed by researchers Wednesday, would have been akin to the 1859 Carrington Event, the largest solar storm ever recorded. While there were no satellites to cripple back then, the storm knocked out telegraph systems across the U.S. A study from 2013 estimated that a Carrington-esque storm would cost the global economy more than $2.5 trillion.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's one thing to file a class action lawsuit against Fitbit when you personally suffered from the Force rash. The main plaintiff in this case, however, didn't. Maybe there was a better way for him to handle his disappointment with the company.

Xsan Permission Propagation

Forums: Troubleshooting

Hello,

Within my environmentw we have:

A 70Tbs Xsan volume running v3.0, two 10.8.5 MDCs on Xserves, combination of Promise E&J raids, four Qlogic 5600 switches and another Xserve used as a fileserver sharing out folders from the Xsna volume.

I have noticed when I propogate ACL permissions with full read/write, from the root folders, down our folder strucutre, the permissions don't trickle down all the way.

Ex: I have a folder structure with ten folders and within the last folder, there are files. Via Xsan Admin, the files lack ACL rights because the last (tenth) folder doesn't have proper rights. Though, the above folders (1-9) do have the ACL rights. 

Is there any type of bug within Xsan where permissions stop tricking down at a certain point?

Thanks.

External Link: First Apple Dealer to Close

When the fifth Apple II rolled off the assembly line in 1977, it went to Team Electronics in Minneapolis inside a leather case festooned with an Apple logo (mysteriously lacking a bite mark). That makes the Team Electronics store, which eventually became Twin Cities institution FirstTech, the first and oldest continually operating Apple reseller. Alas, FirstTech is calling it quits, citing pricing pressure from national resellers after Apple recently loosened restrictions on minimum prices. FirstTech has already closed its Rochester, Minnesota store, which opened just months ago, and will shutter its Minneapolis headquarters on 29 March 2014. A TwinCities.com report by TidBITS contributor Julio Ojeda-Zapata has the fascinating details, plus a video excerpt from the “Welcome to Macintosh” documentary with background on how FirstTech came about and its historical importance in the Apple world. “And it all started in Minnesota,” the video notes.

Have you ever wondered what the most popular colors are in each category of the iOS store? We did.

What we found was very interesting.

Before you design you next app icon, take a look at the color palettes below.

First Apple Retailer, FirstTech, to Shut Down

FirstTech may not be a familiar name, but it holds a special place in the history of technology because it was the very first store to sell Apple's personal computers. Time marches on, and now the Minneapolis-based retailer is closing its doors after more than 35 years in business, and will be taking a little bit of the glory days of the personal computing frontier days with it.

The Mac Observer Spin: Smaller companies can't compete with retail and service providers working on the national level, so they're slowly dropping off the map. It's sad to see independent retailers close shop, and it's sad to see the very first Apple II retailer go out of business.

EA Patches Flaw, Blocks Apple ID Phishing Scam

The gaming company EA has fixed a security flaw that let hackers use one of its servers to stage a phishing scam to trick victims into revealing their Apple IDs. Hackers used known issues in a years-old version of a Web calendar module as their hook into EA's servers.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's great that EA acted so quickly to shut down the phishing scam. It isn't so great that they still had a version of WebCalendar from 2008 with known security vulnerabilities sitting there ready and waiting for hackers.

Smartphone manufacturers are expected to continue their battle for pixel-pushing dominance in 2014 with new cameras of 13 megapixels and beyond, but according to one insider, Apple is currently expected to sit out on the megapixel race this year to concentrate on other ways to better images from its next iPhone.

Amazon raises Prime pricetag to $99

Back in February, we wrote about rumors that Amazon might be raising the cost of its Prime service as much as $40. Amazon decided to split the difference rather than alienate all its customers by only raising the price by $20, but it seems that was enough to rile up a lot of Amazon Prime customers into threatening to stop paying for the service. An email was recently sent to current subscribers to notify them of the change which included an explanation for the price increase;

“Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million. We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies and TV...

iPhone tips: Fight off the battery blues, Part 1

Battery life has always been the bane of any mobile device user, and the trend continues to this day. As handheld device manufacturers add new capabilities, more demands are placed on the battery which offsets at least some of the improvements in battery technology. Other technologies like Bluetooth LE have been developed to reduce the drain on batteries, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle plus not every device has this capability yet. Inevitably, any time Apple updates iOS there will be nearly as many people saying that their battery life was shortened as people saying it was improved. Why is this? The plain answer to the question is that every iDevice out there is different. Some people leave their iPhones at the stock settings, some customize them...

China Mobile sold over 1M iPhones last month,...

Photo: readwrite.com

China Mobile announced that it sold 1.34M 4G handsets in February and that “most of them” were iPhones. China Mobile chairman Xi Guohua was relatively non-committal on the numbers.

It’s just been getting started for one or two months. So far it’s hard to tell how that will affect our business [...]

We are happy with the progress as we are still building our 4G network and the coverage is only available in some major cities.

Analyst estimates of likely sales had varied widely. Most had predicted at least 15-17M sales a year in China as a whole, however, suggesting that 1M in a month on what is by far the country’s largest carrier may be somewhat lower than anticipated … ...

FirstTech, the first Apple reseller, closing its...

Before there were Apple Stores, before big box retailers like Best Buy, there were the mom and pop computer shops. It’s where you’d go to buy your first Apple computer, where you’d get supplies like floppy disks and perforated computer paper (one long sheet of paper, perfed into individual pages, sprocket feed holes on the side). More importantly, it’s where you’d go to get your questions answered, buy your software (or find shareware), and get your computer fixed. And now they are closing.

World’s first Apple reseller to close this month,...

Via TwinCities.com, the first ever Apple authorized reseller is going to end business after over 36 years of trading. Located in Minneapolis, Team Electronics (which later changed its name to FirstTech) was shipped Apple’s first batch of computers in the late 1970′s. It has sold Apple devices for more than three decades, celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2012.However, on March 29th, the shop will close due to shrinking margins.

Product manager Fred Evans says that the company has been outstripped by national distributors who often sold machines below cost.

These vendors have “basically been willing to sell the computer equipment below cost to go after the national service business,” he noted. It...

In an unusual move, Apple is sending out "critical security update" reminders to users running OS X 10.9.x if they haven't yet updated to 10.9.2, which fixes an SSL/VPN vulnerability. The reminder, which can appear as a notification on the user's desktop or as an update in Software Update (handled through the Mac App Store), emphasizes the importance of the 10.9.2 update, which also brought new features and other improvements on board. Apple may choose to similarly warn iOS 7 users who haven't updated yet, even though adoption has -- as is typical for both platforms -- been strong....

I’ve always been a voracious reader. When I was a kid, I spent a good amount of time reading every single Hardy Boys book I could get my hands on.

This piece on the true nature of Franklin W. Dixon, whose name was on the cover of every one of these books, was crushing. Not just because Mr. Dixon was a complete fiction, but because of the appalling treatment of the people who actually did write these books.

There have been moments, as an adult, when I’ve thought about rereading one of the books, perhaps The Tower Treasure, which was the very first one. But after reading the linked article, not so much.

Resize Image Lets You Scale Images Quickly on iPhone

Resize Image is a handy little free app for your iPhone. It's exactly what it says on the tin, you can scale images down from their current size, either by file size or by pixel measurement. Bonus: You get to determine what those pre-set sizes are, so if you need something particular just adjust the preferences. As noted in an iTunes review, this is great because you don't have to send full size iPhone photos over iMessage/MMS. Second, this is fab for those working with a blog platform or other web service where you want to send a smaller version of your picture from your phone instead of having to email it to yourself for further jiggery-pokery on your computer. It's ad-supported, but the US$1.99 IAP removes them if you prefer. [Via TUAW]
