Showdown! Four Apple Watch calculator apps face off

My first wearable device other than a regular old wristwatch was a Sinclair Wrist Calculator. Over the years, I had other calculator watches from Casio and the like so I naturally got excited about the idea of having a calculator on my Apple Watch. Fairly quickly, I had four — PCalc ($9.99, also PCalc Lite for free), CalcyCalc ($0.99 launch price), CalcBot (free with in-app purchases) and CALC (free with in-app purchases). This is a quick look at these four...

I respect any accessory developer who attempts to solve a legitimate problem, and admire developers who find smart ways to solve multiple problems simultaneously. Unlike many competing Apple Watch stands, Griffin Technology’s new WatchStand thinks past the initial challenge of mounting your watch, and also includes a place for your iPhone to rest on your nightstand. As you’ll see in my guide to the best Apple Watch stands and docks, it’s impossible to find a combination Watch and iPhone stand at a lower price: normally $30 via Amazon, WatchStand is ...

LEO THE NORWEGIAN FOREST CAT. PHOTO BY GEERT-JAN NILSEN

It's been a few weeks since we've had our feline friends gracing the Saturday "front page" of Apple World Today, but earlier this week we received an email from a Norwegian reader, Geert-Jan Nilsen, with a link to this beauty.

GJ let us know that Leo had just rebooted "her" MacBook Pro after updating to the latest OS X 10.10.4 beta. Do I sense a bit of impatience in her face while she's waiting for the update to finish?

Leo's a Norwegian Forest Cat (AKA Norsk Skogkatt), a breed of cat that's perfectly adapted to the cold winters of Norway. She certainly looks warm in all that fur!

A racing legend on mastering America’s greatest track

Wired:

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, founded in 1909, is the world’s oldest permanent motorsport facility. It’s changed a lot since the early days—pavement instead of bricks for a racing surface, new stands and administration buildings—but the track is essentially the same. It still has corners banked at 9 degrees, 12 minutes, and those corners are the same radius they were a century ago.

More than that, the track is still a magical, ghostly place, eerily alive with death and life. Stand on the front straight and stare into Turn 1—it looks like a tunnel, or maybe a wall of asphalt—and you feel the echo of death and time in your bones.

I’ve watched this race every year since I was eight years old and I was lucky enough to drive my motorcycle on it for a charity event. It really is a amazing place.

Great expectations: An Ars reader wishlist for iOS 9

Last weekend we published a short wishlist of things we’d like to see in iOS 9. Some of it was fairly basic, some of it was more involved. Some wishes were new, and others have been around for years. Some things seemed like a safe bet, and others were more farfetched. But software is never done, and hey, we can dream.

Many of you had desires beyond what we asked about, and we’ve gathered some of the most interesting and frequently requested features here. Like our original list, your requests are a mix of plausible and implausible, simple and complex. But all of them would be interesting additions that would make iOS more useful.

Review: Kanex USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter...

Adapters for adding thicker ports are nothing new for Apple’s modern line of notebooks. Even the high-end Retina MacBook Pro decidedly excludes a direct Ethernet connection, and Apple’s MacBook Air and new ultrathin 12-inch MacBook are especially too thin for a wired connection to the Internet without relying on an adapter in the middle.

While modern WiFi is fine for most everyday situations, even Apple acknowledges that a wired connection is necessary in some instances. To remedy this, it sells a $29 USB Ethernet Adapter and a faster $29 Thunderbolt to Ethernet Adapter. The 12-inch MacBook has neither port, however, additionally requiring Apple’s $19 USB-C to USB Adapter to work with the slower adapter.

Fortunately with USB-C being a new industry standard, accessory makers like Kanex are ready with solutions like the...

Nearly a month after the Apple Watch officially went on sale, gold Edition models have begun arriving for non-celebrity customers who placed the earliest online orders. As expected, the Apple Watch Edition’s white external packaging is nearly identical to the cardboard box for the stainless steel Apple Watch, save for the box noting the color of the 18-Karat gold casing and unique band on the side.

Inside the box, however, the items are a bit different. As we’ve noted before, the Apple Watch Edition includes a colored leather-covered box that integrates the MagSafe charger. The Edition also includes a color-matched cleaning cloth with the word Edition embossed into the material. The...

If everything goes according to Uber’s master plan, pretty soon you won’t have to sit through having to make small talk with a human when you take one of their rides.

The ride-sharing giant has set up a research and development outpost in Pittsburgh, and its first project has already driven itself off the lot for a test drive. Uber now has an autonomous car.

The modified Ford vehicle spotted in the wild had an Uber logo on the side and a large Back to the Future-looking device on top when it was first spotted driving around Pittsbugh on May 13. Uber quickly confirmed that the car was the work of the company’s Advanced Technologies Center to experiment with the use of robotics in transportation.

As I noted in yesterday’s review of the Nomad Stand for Apple Watch, I wasn’t initially certain that the Apple Watch needed a dock, but actually using a Watch changed my mind: just as the Apple Watch Edition’s custom charging cases hinted, it’s best to keep metal or metal-accented Watch bands from rubbing against nightstands during charging, and even Apple’s fluoroelastomer Sport Bands tend to flop around when the Watch’s charging puck is connected. My guide to the best Apple Watch stands and docks spotlights many potential solutions, some of which are a lot more compelling than others.

Report: iOS 9 will be optimized for older devices,...

We're just a few weeks out from WWDC, and new details about Apple's next-generation operating systems continue to surface. A new report from the well-sourced 9to5Mac details a handful of features, the most interesting of which is a note about support for older devices. We had assumed that Apple would include support for some devices based on its aging A5 SoC—the fifth-gen iPod Touch, original iPad Mini, and third-gen Apple TV are all still being sold, after all—but the report indicates that we can expect an update for out-of-production devices like the iPhone 4S (the iPad 2 isn't mentioned by name, but the implication is that it will be supported as well).

If true, this would be the longest that Apple has ever provided software updates for any one iPhone model. Normally, iOS releases support four iPhone...

WALTR: Transfer and playback unsupported formats on...

MY thanks to WALTR for sponsoring The Loop this week. WALTR is the first Mac app in the world to allow users transfer and playback unsupported formats such as MKV, AVI, FLAC & more – directly from the native Videos/Music app.

iTunes is the only option Apple gives us for loading media onto our iPhone, iPad or iPod touch from our Macs, and it limits the audio and video file formats we can upload. That’s a thing of the past thanks to WALTR from Softorino. This awesome Mac app lets you upload a long list of file formats — such as MKV, AVI, MP4, CUE, FLAC, APE, ALAC, OGG, AAC, AIFF and WAV — to your iOS device without ever touching iTunes. Just fire up WALTR, connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac via USB, and drag files to convert and upload them so you can watch or listen on the go. It really is drag-and-drop simple, and file transfers are surprisingly fast.
 
No iTunes required; No jailbreak required; No need to worry about 3rd party converters;

Samsung’s S6 is a sales disaster

In the month since the phone’s launch, however, the response has been lacklustre. The Korean news outlet Yonhap News Agency reports that the device has seen 10 million shipments so far. For comparison, Samsung’s previous model, the S5, shipped 11 million units in the same time frame a year ago — the year in which Samsung’s sales collapsed. These are shipments, not sales, so the number of devices sold could be even lower.

I guess you can’t copy and be successful forever.

There’s a building in China that looks almost exactly like the USS Enterprise from Star Trek. Drone footage shows how a relatively conventional-looking building from the ground dramatically transforms into a regal starship when viewed from the air.

Lest you think this is visual trickery done via Holodeck or CGI, the starship/building is clearly visible on Google Maps.

Apple's streaming TV service might not be...

Apple’s long-rumored streaming video service could be slipping away once again, as the company reportedly struggles to get TV programmers on board.

Apple wanted to launch the service in the fall with roughly 25 channels, priced around $30 to $40 per month, unnamed industry sources said in March. A new report from Re/code says Apple has hit a couple of roadblocks.

The biggest hurdle involves local broadcasts from networks such as ABC, CBS, and Fox. Apple is reportedly intent on carrying these networks, but the negotiations for streaming can get complicated because the networks don’t own all their local stations. Some markets rely on affiliates or a franchise system, which leads to rights issues and the need for...

How accurate is the Apple Watch’s step counter and...

CNET:

There’s no doubt that the Apple Watch can do a lot of things. It can be used to communicate with others, view notifications from an iPhone and even pay for items with Apple Pay. It’s also a dedicated activity tracker that can measure active calories burned, active minutes, the number of times you stand throughout the day, your daily step count and distance traveled.

We’ve been testing the Apple Watch over the past few weeks, and focused on those final two metrics — steps taken and distance traveled — to see how it stacks up against the competition.

This is an important question for those who want or need to have accurate tracking. Good to see the Apple Watch scored so highly and that Apple has done a good job in making sure the Watch works as advertised.

Apple put a lot of fixes and changes into its Watch OS 1.0.1 update.

It might need a few more.

A number of users as well as independent testing have reported that the Watch OS 1.0.1 updated has caused some Apple Watches to track heart rate sporadically, in some cases with an hour or more between readings, according to complaints on Apple’s support forums, and verified by AppleInsider’s array of tests.

The Apple Watch owners first cited complaints about the issue on Wednesday, noting that Apple officially states that the Watch should take a reading every 10 minutes outside of the Workout app. In some cases the...

For the first time in several years, Apple is changing up its annual iOS and OS X upgrade cycle by limiting new feature additions in favor of a “big focus on quality,” according to multiple sources familiar with the company’s operating system development plans. We first reported in February that iOS 9, codenamed “Monarch,” would heavily feature under-the-hood optimizations, and we’ve now learned that Apple is taking the same approach with OS X 10.11, codenamed “Gala.” Sources have revealed additional new details on how Apple will optimize the new operating systems for improved stability and performance, add several new security features, and make important changes to its Swift programming tools for developers…

Rumor: Apple looking to integrate public transit...

Apple Maps could be reborn with mass transit directions built in.

New rumors have stated that Apple could introduce bus, subway, and train route navigation to Apple Maps.

The rumors have focused on larger icons for mass transit facilities along with a Transit view alongside the Standard, Hybrid, and Satellite/Flyover views, and a trip-planning feature. Apple is also reportedly using autonomous robots to map out large buildings, a feature that may or may not be part of iOS 9 Apple Maps.

Apple has apparently been working on acquiring assets that would allow Maps to coordinate around mass transit systems for a few years now. The company was rumored to...

Review: Apple iPhone Lightning Dock

Apple's new iPhone Lightning Dock ($39) is the company's first since 2013's iPhone 5s Dock and iPhone 5c Dock. As one would expect, this new dock is compatible with the company's newest iPhones, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. While the previous two docks placed the Lightning connector in a recessed slot, the Lightning connector here is extended, allowing for greater case — and device — compatibility. Also included on the back of the dock is an audio-out port — the port uses the phone's headphone volume controls for connected headphones or speakers. The dock doesn't come with a Lightning cable, so you'll need to supply your own, which is accommodated by an input on the back of the dock.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple’s update to Watch OS 1.0.1 was intended to improve the performance of several fitness-related functions, but also appears to have introduced a bug. Instead of the Apple Watch recording your heart rate every ten minutes, many users – including myself – are seeing large gaps in the data.

My readings for yesterday afternoon and evening, shown above, contain four gaps of more than an hour. Two of these gaps span times when I was cycling, when the data would have been most relevant. Users in an Apple Support Communities thread (via EverythingCafe) are reporting the same thing … ...

It’s tempting to lump every car game in with the racing genre, but Does Not Commute really is a different kind of experience: It’s more of a driving game than a racer. And really, it’s a defensive driving game, because there are a lot of crazies out on the roads. You should know—you’re controlling every one of them, after all.

An iPhone 5c saved the life of a 25-year-old gunshot victim, according to British police (via Business Insider). The victim, who has not been named, was shot at close range with a shotgun and suffered serious abdominal injuries, but survived thanks to the iPhone 5c in his pocket taking the main force.

Detective Inspector Gary McIntyre from Cheshire Police said: “Fortunately, the victim’s mobile phone took the brunt of the shot and, as a result of this, he survived. This is remarkable – had that phone not been in his pocket at that time he would undoubtedly have died.”

The shooting happened when the victim approached a group of teenagers who had shut off the...

Smart uses for smart albums in Photos for OS X

While it may be satisfying for the OCD within you to manually organize your digital mementos into albums in Photos, you can automate the process using smart albums. These albums self-populate based on criteria you set, so when Photos detects an image that matches your criteria, it’s automatically added to the smart album (just like iTunes’ smart playlists).

Smart albums are insanely handy. For example, you can create one that collects all the pictures you take that include a certain keyword, say, comicon, that fall within a certain date range and that are tagged as favorites. Or how about an album that gathers all the pictures of your kids that also includes the keyword vacation? In this column, you’ll learn how to make smart albums and discover a few ideas on how to use them.
