PSA: Bitcasa ending unlimited cloud storage, data...

The (almost) free lunch promised by Bitcasa of unlimited cloud storage for just $99/year is coming to an end, and the company has also informed users that they will need to manually migrate all data to a new backend by 15th November or it will be deleted.

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...

Tim Cook talks Apple Pay, Apple Watch and security...

On the final day of Tim Cook’s four-day visit to China, he told state news agency Xinhuanet that Apple Pay was top of the list of things the company wanted to take to China.

“China is a really key market for us,” said the CEO. “Everything we do, we are going to work it here. Apple Pay is on the top of the list.”

Cook said that Apple would be working to understand the steps needed to bring the new service to China before meeting with local carriers, banks and merchants …

Cook also said that people would find the Apple Watch to be a must-have product.

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.

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.

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.

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:

First Look: Apple iPad mini 3

Unlike the iPad Air 2, Apple's iPad mini 3 ($399-$729) has hardly changed at all when compared to its predecessor. The new tablet adds Touch ID and a gold color option with a white face, and now comes solely in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities. And that's about it. Nevertheless, we'll still be putting the tablet through its paces and giving it a proper review — though it will be much shorter than our usual reviews for new Apple devices. iPad mini…

The switch itself has had something of an identity crisis over the years, with Apple originally debuting it as a rotation lock when the iPad was first released, then later unceremoniously changing it to a mute switch before finally giving users…

While a 10W power adapter would theoretically require longer charging times, iFixit’s recent teardown confirmed that the iPad Air 2 contains a smaller battery than its predecessor, suggesting a possible…

GPNE lost its patent infringement lawsuit against Apple on Wednesday,after which the iPhone and iPad maker promptly called the company a patent troll - a term it was barred from using during the trial. GPNE accused Apple of designing its mobile devices around its years-old pager patent and asked the court to bar the use of "patent troll" in the proceedings.

The Mac Observer Spin: The only win GPNE got out of this trial was keeping Apple from calling it a patent troll in court. Turns out that was a pretty short lived victory.

Mark Zuckerberg Wows Chinese Crowd with 30 Minute...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg went on a major charm offensive in China by giving a 30 minute interview where he answered everything in Mandarin Chinese. That was clever, for sure, but even more clever was posting a video of the interview to Facebook. The interview was at Tsinghua University in Beijing, where the university announced Mr. Zuckerberg was joining its School of Economics and Management Advisory Board. Again, clever. As noted by Wired, Facebook is banned in China-and boy, oh boy, did his Mandarin performance have this particular crowd wrapped around Mr. Zuckerberg's finger. Clearly he's taking a long view on entering the world's largest market, and this was a smart step in that campaign. Wired also noted that Mr. Zuckerberg learned Mandarin in 2010 as that year's self-improvement goal. I'd love for any Mandarin speakers to offer up their thoughts on his performance in the comments. The full video is embedded below. It may require Flash.

GTAT Announces ‘Amicable Parting’ of Ways with Apple

GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) announced an "amicable parting of the ways" with Apple. GTAT announced the deal in court filings, though Apple itself has yet to comment.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple appears to be going to great lengths to keep the terms of its agreement with GTAT-terms the sapphire maker called "oppressive and burdensome"-secret. It would seem that Apple cut this new deal with GTAT solely to keep those documents sealed after the judge overseeing the bankruptcy told Apple he was inclined to unseal everything.

TMO Daily Observations: 2014-10-21

Apple launched Apple Pay, and there are a couple of ways to set it up. We walk you through it all. We can also send and receive SMS text messages from our Macs and iPads (in addition to iMessages), and we walk you through setting that up. Then we spent some time wondering why in the heck Apple didn't turn it on by default, though taking phone calls on your Mac was.

Following yesterday’s roll-out of Apple Pay in the U.S., a number of users are reporting that the service also works with standard NFC terminals in other countries, provided of course that the user has registered a credit card or debit card from a participating U.S. bank. NFC terminals that accept VISA payWave or MasterCard PayPass cards will also apparently accept payments from an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus setup for Apple Pay with a U.S. card. Although…

First Look: Alpine Headphones

Best known for its in-car audio systems and high-end iPod/iPhone integration units, Alpine has entered the iPhone/iPod headphone market with a new pair of headphones named... Headphones ($300). The industrial design is obviously Beats-influenced, with a mostly plastic frame and glossy metallic accents atop heavily padded, diamond-shaped earcups. What's extremely unique about Headphones is the role Bluetooth plays here: rather than using the wireless…

How to Enable Apple’s SMS Relay on your Mac or iPad

When Apple announced iOS 8 back at WWDC one feature was met with great applause: SMS Relay. This allows users to send and receive not only iMessages from their Macs but also regular Text Messages (i.e. the "green bubble" messages we send to our Android-using friends). When iOS 8 was released and the feature wasn't there, we all waited for Yosemite. When Yosemite came out we realized we needed to wait for iOS 8.1. Now that you have those two installed (you must for this to work), there are just a few more steps to follow, but they're pretty simple.

Review: Misfit Flash Fitness + Sleep Monitor

Flash’s tracking capabilities are all contained within the disc, which isn’t much bigger than a quarter. The disc can be inserted into a sport band to wear Flash like a watch, or into a clip, to attach to clothing or a keychain. Flash uses a common coin cell battery that Misfit claims will last up to six months. Simplicity is the name of Flash’s game: upon pressing the disc once, a ring of 12 lights will briefly show a user how much…

The Mac Observer Spin: I want to believe Apple is totally going to get this right, but I also didn't think Apple would get it so wrong as to remove the ability to make phone calls from your phone, so for now I'm sticking to my 24 hour rule and waiting to see how others do before upgrading myself.

News: Apple working to cut music subscription prices

A new report from Re/code reveals that Apple is working to get the price of its subscription music services down to as low as $5/month. Apple was reportedly asking the labels to cut prices to pave the way for a cheaper Beats music subscription, and is suggesting that top iTunes buyers spend about $60/year on music downloads, which equates to about $5/month. On a $5/month subscription model, the music labels would therefore not lose any revenue as…
