External Link: How to Revert to iTunes 11

If you hate iTunes 12 and long for the relatively halcyon days of iTunes 11, then Macworld’s Chris Breen has your back. Borrowing a tip from Jacqui Cheng, formerly of Ars Technica, Breen has outlined seven steps for going back to the previous version of iTunes.

External Link: Backblaze on OS X 10.10 Yosemite...

Cloud backup service Backblaze is back with more analysis, this time favoring operating system upgrades over hard drive statistics. Backblaze’s Adam Nelson found that it took four days for 21 percent of Backblaze users to adopt Yosemite, while it took a whole two years for the same amount of users to upgrade to Windows 8. Nelson posits a few theories for the disparity, including locked-down corporate computers, a lukewarm reception for Windows 8, and the fact that Yosemite is free.

Kantar: iOS market share outgrowing Android in...

The latest data from Kantar Worldpanel shows that iOS market share is just outgrowing Android across the five largest markets in Europe, growing 1.5% year-on-year against Android’s 1.4%, but dropping 3.3% in the USA.

iOS market share now stands at 32.6% in the USA and 15.4% across the top 5 European markets … 

It’s worth repeating our usual disclaimer here: Apple has never chased absolute market share–which includes a huge range of low-end Android handsets–instead focusing only on the smaller market for premium devices. Apple sales can be growing strongly while at the same time losing market share as the overall size of the market increases thanks to sales of...

Apple CEO Tim Cook made an appearance at the WSJD Live conference, and Apple Spotlight has listed some of the most interesting tidbits from that interview. Cook said that Apple Pay activated over one million credit cards in the first 72 hours, that Apple stopped making the iPod Classic because it could no longer obtain the parts for it, and he again hinted at future TV plans by comparing the current TV experience to living in the 1970s. Not mentioned in the summary was Cook’s hint at an Apple Pay partnership with the e-commerce giant Alibaba.

With Ampy, You'll Get a Charge Out of Exercising


While some people are vaguely aware that movement can be converted into electrical energy -- think wrist watches or emergency crank flashlights -- a new Kickstarter project has created Ampy, a small, wearable battery pack that can harness the kinetic motion of common humans and release it back into smartphones, smartwatches and other USB-powered electronic gadgets. If you walk about 10,000 steps, cycle for one hour, or run for 30 minutes, you can generate about three hours of smartphone life.

NewerTech Headless Mac Video Accelerator

It's almost Halloween, so of course something with "Headless" in the title is attention-getting. NewerTech has announced a new video adapter, the Headless Mac Video Accelerator. If you have a Mac that runs in "headless" mode (meaning without an attached monitor), when you do have to log in for something, all of the video rendering is done by the CPU; since there's no monitor connected the graphics card doesn't get used. This is why headless Macs feel even slower than they actually are, with the CPU doing all the rendering on top of regular tasks it really starts to lag. NewerTech's adapter is basically a mini DisplayPort plug that goes nowhere, but causes the computer to think a display is attached, triggering the video card so now remote logins are more responsive. It's available now from OWC for USD $19.99, and works with all Mac Pro models from Early 2009 on through the mid-2010 (the latest model before the revised black cylinder), and Mac minis from June 2010 up to the late...

The Mac Observer Spin: Seems like CVS is confusing "cannot" with "won't," because their NFC credit card terminals are clearly capable of supporting Apple Pay.

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 deal only keeps the photo archives and domain alive, and for now it looks like that's all it will do.

The Mac Observer Spin: The collapse of Twitpic is unfortunate, and it's a pretty safe bet it won't be coming back in any form because Twitter offers its own photo uploading feature. The upside is that procrastinators can still export their Twitpic images since the site is staying online for now.

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.

Bricks of Mouse Guard will include minifig mouse heads in gray, brown, reddish brown and tan, along with The Black Axe, Trisam's flagon, Lieam's sword, Kenzie's staff and lantern, and Aynslee's flagon. Alice is a master LEGO builder, and her work is truly impressive. I can't wait to see her Bricks of Mouse Guard in the flesh - or plastic.

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:

With the removal of the side switch from the new iPad Air 2, Apple has added separate mute and rotation buttons to the iOS 8.1 Control Center to replace the missing functionality, exclusive to the new device. 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…

News: GT Advanced announces settlement with Apple

As was reported Wednesday, GT Advanced Technologies has now officially announced that it has reached a settlement agreement with Apple. The announcement reveals GT will retain ownership of its production, ancillary, and inventory assets in Mesa, Arizona. GT will also be given four years interest-free to repay Apple $439 million – money that the company will earn by selling its sapphire furnaces. Although GT is leaving the sapphire production business,…

News: iPad Air 2 ships with 10W power adapter

Our initial look at the iPad Air 2 reveals that Apple is bundling a 10W/2.1A power adapter with its newest iPad model – a step back down from the 12W/2.4A unit that has been included with the last two generations of full-sized iPad models. 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…

Pixelmator for iPad Hits Apple’s App Store

Pixelmator for the iPad, first shown off during Apple's iPad Air 2 launch event earlier this month, hit the App Store Thursday morning. The image and photo editor has been available on the Mac for some time, but until now hasn't been an option on the iPad.

The Mac Observer Spin: Pixelmator has the potential to out-Photoshop Photoshop on the iPad. That's pretty big.

Apple Wins GPNE Patent Lawsuit, Calls Company a...

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.

Apple plans to drop support for SSL 3.0 for Push notifications following the discovery of the Poodle SSL 3.0 security flaw. The Mac, iPhone and iPad maker will transition to TLS on October 29, and is warning developers to update their apps to support the more secure protocol.

The Mac Observer Spin: Heatbleed, Shellshock, and Poodle are all big security risks in SSL, so its good to see Apple and other companies actively moving away from supporting the older security protocol in favor of TLS.

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.

First Look: Apple iPad Air 2

The Wi-Fi version of the new iPad Air 2 ($499-$829) officially arrived in stores today, and as expected, it has simultaneously reduced the thickness and increased the power of Apple's full-sized iconic tablet. An 18% reduction in thickness was achieved by bonding the new Air's screen directly to its now anti-reflective front glass, as well as by shrinking the battery inside -- enough to drop the run time from last year's model. Apple has updated both…

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.
