It was discovered on Friday that AT&T is dedicating the new multi-carrier Apple SIM included with the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 to its network, forcing buyers to obtain a new one when switching to another carrier, while Sprint Stores will not supply the card at all.

New Uses For Old Power Macs

Over at designboom we get a look at another use for the slightly-less-than-current hardware: Furniture! Klaus Geiger couldn't find it in his heart to forsake these aluminum beauties, and found a way to keep them around. After scooping out the insides (and in some cases creating drawers), he added some wood or some glass and ended up with some really nice looking pieces. I love the wood and metal combinations, and having one of the wheeled carts would be super useful at my house. It's also really nice to see the office furniture made of old towers. I have to give props to Klaus for finding another use for these machines, even though the insides are not so useful, the outsides are still very pretty.

Apple Pay is Soaring While Competitors Crash and Burn

Large companies have large ambitions. When powerful tech companies come crashing into people's lives with products that give them pause, they naturally turn to a safe oasis. It's that human element, an Apple strength, that makes the company's products alluring. This week, Microsoft and Amazon were reminded of that while they watched Apple Pay become a warmly embraced product.

These are the real stories behind some of the most...

Huffington Post:

Manganese black. Yellow ocher. Vermilion. Ultramarine. These pigments sound delicious. Their names are so sharp and elegant, it’s as if the terms emote more meaning than just color. We can smell logwood, taste cochineal, touch mummy brown. There is just something (quite scientifically) alluring about a perfectly saturated glob of paint or an electric mound of powdered hues, especially when its name is so tantalizing.

The uniqueness of the names undoubtedly prompts those amongst us, who obsess over the various pink, purples and blues, to wonder where the terms come from. We learn the origin stories of famous paintings in art history course after art history course, but it’s rare to read about the birth of Madder red or mauve. How did the colors in Vincent van Gogh’s “Irises” or J.M.W. Turner’s “Modern Rome” come to be?

I never really thought about it but of course it’s true; these artists had to make their own paint and would of course create...

AT&T confirms it locks iPad’s new Apple SIM card...

AT&T has confirmed in a statement that the new universal Apple SIM card in iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 becomes locked to the carrier after being activated on its network.

It appears AT&T might be the only carrier locking the SIM card after activation, as Apple confirms in a support document that “AT&T dedicates Apple SIM to their network only” with no mention of other carriers. The support document also confirms that “Sprint Stores will only carry iPads with legacy Sprint SIM cards (not Apple SIM cards).”

When Apple launched its iPad Air 2 earlier this month, one surprise was the company’s decision to include a new universal SIM in the cellular version of device. The Apple SIM, preinstalled in...

External Link: Secrets of the iPad Air 2

The tinkerers at iFixit have torn apart the new iPad Air 2 and discovered that it contains NFC hardware, which in theory would allow for physical Apple Pay transactions. Whether that ever happens or not, rest assured that your iPad Air’s Smart Cover is compatible with the new model. However, it appears that the battery is slightly smaller than the previous generation, and early reports indicate that battery life has suffered for it. If you had hopes of repairing your own iPad Air 2, forget it: just about everything inside the iPad Air 2 is glued in place.

Users who activate Apple’s own SIM card to use an AT&T data plan with the Wi-Fi + Cellular models of iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 are finding the SIM will lock itself to AT&T, and can no longer be used by another network. Though it appeared the SIM card would be interchangeable between AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile — though not Verizon — it’s not the case with AT&T. The issue was confirmed by Re/code through AT&T spokesman…

Apple

The multi-carrier Apple SIM in the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 lets US customers purchase data from either AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. But it turns out that if you want the option of switching carriers, you'll either have to avoid AT&T or acquire another SIM card.

When you set up cellular data on a new iPad with the multi-carrier SIM, you'll get this screen, which lets you choose a carrier:

Hands On: Tomb Raider (OS X, Windows)

Last year, Square Enix published a new take on a fan favorite character that made a debut on the PlayStation back in 1996. Under the development of Crystal Dynamics, Tomb Raider was rebooted to reintroduce the origins of Lara Croft. Rather than rely on some of the typical tropes associated with the character, the development team added a depth and human touch that was welcome in the series. Earlier this year, the game was ported to OS X by Feral Interactive, giving Mac owners a chance to experience Croft's new story....

Editorial: In defense of the new $499 Mac mini

After the release, we came out pretty strongly against Apple's new $499 Mac mini. We thought it to be underpowered, and despite some minor improvements, generally a step backwards. Time has passed, tempers have cooled a bit, and we've given it a second thought. While we're not saying that its a must-buy, there are some good use cases for it, and in some instances it trumps the 2012 model....

difficult to tell what accounts for all that money. But now we know: It’s not music.

A teardown of Apple's iPad Air 2 turned up a surprise: an NFC module.

According to iFixit, the NXP 65V10 NFC Controller is the same one that Apple uses for Apple Pay in its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The same chip also appears inside Apple's iPad mini 3, iFixit found in its teardown of the smaller tablet.

Apple Pay lets users check out at retail stores by tapping their phones against a payment terminal, but that feature isn't currently available to iPad users. While some reviews speculated that the new iPads simply lacked the necessary NFC chip, iFixit's teardown proves otherwise.

Re/code team takes Apple Pay on a test drive

[VIDEO] Re/code put together a review team of four people, two on the east coast, two on the west coast, to put Apple Pay through its paces.

Our overall conclusion: Apple Pay worked smoothly and quickly in all but a very few instances. But the number of physical and online stores that accept it at launch is still very small. Plus, some common things slow it down, like the need for signatures and debit-card PINs in some stores, its lack of support for loyalty cards, and cashier confusion. So it’s far from a complete replacement for your wallet and credit card, at least not yet.

This simplistic conclusion is only skin deep. The real value of the review is watching Apple Pay at work, with a separate video for each team member. To get you started, here’s Katie Boehret from...

Bitcasa was able to offer low-cost “infinite storage” because it figured that most users would have only a relatively small proportion of unique content. As I mentioned in my comparative review:

The company estimates that most people have no more than 25GB of unique content on their computers, the rest – music, movies, etc – being content held in common with other people. For that data, Bitcasa stores only one copy of the file, with the rest of our backups containing...

In as much as I grouse about Visa and MasterCard (also known as the “Dark Sith Overlords of Ever-Climbing, Interest Monster Debt”), this might come in handy. Per 9to5Mac, Visa and MasterCard have published a list of banks and financial institutions that will support Apple Pay in the United States “in the coming weeks,” while MasterCard has its own list of supported banks arriving in the coming months. The mobile payments service officially launched on Monday, October 20th and currently supports cards issued by Bank of America, Capital One, Citi Bank, Chase and Wells Fargo Bank. A full list of banks coming soon from...

Former Apple retail head Ron Johnson raises $30M for...

Ron Johnson, who headed up Apple’s retail operations for almost 12 years, has raised $30M in funding for an intriguing-sounding online shopping service due to launch next year, reports the WSJ.

The new company is called Enjoy, and Mr. Johnson says its goal is to change the way people buy and use the “things that matter” in a world in which consumers start their shopping online [...]

Johnson is not giving much away about what Enjoy will offer, but said that it’s designed to help bridge the gap between offline and online shopping for more complex and expensive products.

Enjoy aims to help shoppers develop a connection with new products, in the way that Apple Stores let shoppers try its products. For example, Mr. Johnson said it is hard for customers to understand the capabilities of a new product like a GoPro...

What a difference 30 years makes for image...

It’s more a picture than anything.

Over on Things of Interest, someone overlaid the original Apple Macintosh, which was released in 1984 and shipped with a black-and-white 512 x 342 display. Fast forward 30 years to the release of the iMac with Retina 5K display, which ships with a 5,120 x 2,880 display with support for millions of colours. That’s an increase from 175,000 pixels to more than 14.7 million – an 8,400% increase. 80 of the original Macintosh displays fit within a single Retina 5K display.

The stats are astounding, but to really put things in perspective, take a look at the image below, showing the original Macintosh display overlaid on a promotional image that Apple has been using to showcase the massive size of the new iMac’s display. Click the image to link to the full, relatively massive original image.

Developer says Apple sent them pornographic image...

Apple’s developer guidelines on explicit content

An iOS developer said Apple demonstrated that their app could be used to surf for porn by sending them a screenshot containing a pornographic image. Carl Smith shared the story of the rejection of Wave, an app for browsing Instagram and public images, in a blog post.

It turns out Apple thought the best way to tell us our app could be used to surf porn was to surf for porn using our app. Then send us some pictures and say take a look at these! Except they said, “Please see the attached screenshot for more information.” So with no warning [...]

They sent us a picture of a guy masturbating.

The explicit image was attached to an email rejecting the app on the basis that the process for flagging inappropriate content was inadequate … ...

The Week in iPhone Cases: Belt, pouch, or bumper?

Belt, pouch, or bumper?

This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases has something for every occasion, whether you need a holster to use while working out, want a wallet case for buying a quick snack at the nearest convenience store (that doesn't accept Apple Pay), or are in the market for a general-use case to use while relaxing at home.

The Buddy Pouch

The Buddy Pouch (iPhone 6 Plus; $26) is a lightweight, belt-free pouch specifically designed for runners.

5 ways Facebook’s Rooms stands apart from the...

Facebook’s long-rumored anonymous app is here, shattering common beliefs about what Facebook and anonymous apps are like. Rooms for iOS is a throwback to the Internet communities of old,
when people used pseudonyms to comment but were as well-known as pub regulars.

Rooms is clearly different from apps like Secret, Whisper, and Yik Yak. It’s more community-oriented than the current crop of anonymous apps, which are
centered on the self: This is what I think. This is what I desire. Those missives aren’t conversation-starters, though comments are allowed. They’re
one-way streets.

You Should Play: Crush enemies in the mysterious...

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.

Endless action games are such a perfect fit for mobile devices, as they typically offer short sessions and a strong urge to keep playing until you dominate your friends on the leaderboards. There's no shortage of such offerings on the App Store, and in my view, the more peculiar or abstractly these games are presented, the better—like Super Hexagon or Impossible Road, which are both starkly designed and immensely enjoyable experiences.

smaxp writes In 2007, Sony's supply chain lessons, the network effect from the shift to Intel architecture, and a better OS X for developers combined to renew the Mac's growth. The network effects of the Microsoft Wintel ecosystem that Rappaport explained 20 years ago in the Harvard Business Review are no longer a big advantage. By turning itself into a premium PC company with a proprietary OS, Apple has taken the best of PC ecosystem, but avoided taking on the disadvantages.

Apple's stock on Thursday hit a new all-time closing high, reaching $104.83 per share at the closing bell. While many are waiting to see if the company can close the week at that level or higher, others -- including activist investor Carl Icahn and CEO Tim Cook -- believe the stock remains undervalued. AAPL also set a new intra-day high of $105.05 during trading, and is up slightly from its close at this writing in after-hours trading. Stronger-than-expected iPhone numbers and the coming holiday season has helped fuel the rise....

Microsoft Smart Watch Sneak Peek

Apple has announced a smartwatch we'll get to see next year. Google has released Android Wear to create Android powered smartwatches, and Samsung has one too. When you think of big tech companies, the only one left who hasn't gotten in on the action is Microsoft. Well Owen Williams took a crack at designing it, and I think he got pretty close to what Redmond would theoretically release. I think it'd be four quadrants of color like a Windows logo, but otherwise I think he nailed it. I think it would be called the Microsoft Windows Mobile Wearable Edition For Wrists (since Microsoft is just at good at naming as numbering). See it below:

According to the numbers, which were compiled by looking at the most popular ranked or featured bundles, most of the bundles have an average of 3-4 apps and can save users about $5.64.

Eighty percent of bundles in the store reportedly contain five or fewer applications, while about half of all bundles contain just two or three apps. Apple allows up to ten apps per bundle.
