The fate of iPhone's sapphire screen looks...

New iPhones with scratch-resistant sapphire glass seemed like a sure bet just a couple of months ago, but a new analysis suggests that new screen material was always a long shot.

As DisplayMate's Raymond Soneira wrote, sapphire isn't just expensive and difficult to manufacture. It also has nearly double the reflectance of glass, making the screen harder to read in bright sunlight. It's also a brittle substance that's more prone to shattering than glass, despite its scratch resistance.

Xsan with NetStor NA381TB

Forums: Hardware

Good Evening.
I would like to understand the possibility to build a low cost Xsan system using an hardware chassis called NetStor NA381TB
You can see a presentation of the item here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuqfVN_bliI

As you can see, with a MacMini and a thunderbolt connection, i can have up to 96TB storage in Raid, using an Areca card.

My question is the following:

Until today i've always used fibre channel switches (Qlogic or Brocade).
If i mount 1 or 2 atto FC card (dual or quad port), can i build an Xsan system with 4 or 8 clients connecting directly the optical cables from the Fibre Channel cards of the chassis to the clients?

Thank you very much for your time

FTC suing AT&T for throttling unlimited data...

#BREAKING: FTC sues @ATT for deceptive & unfair data throttling (promising unlimited data & then slowing speeds).


  (@FTC) October 28, 2014

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has announced that it is suing AT&T for “deceptive and unfair data throttling”. The FTC’s announcement seems to target AT&T’s practice of lowering data transfer speeds for customers with unlimited data plans versus customers with tiered data plans now offered. From the FTC’s press release:

“AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances, it has failed to deliver on that promise,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. “The issue here is simple: ‘unlimited’ means unlimited...

4 key takeaways (and 1 non-news tidbit) from Apple...

Apple doesn't make a habit of revealing major news at other company's conferences, but that doesn't mean Tim Cook's appearance at WSJD Live had nothing noteworthy to speak of.

In typically coy fashion, Apple's CEO hinted at future plans, gave status reports on current products and explained the company's overall strategy. Here are some of the major takeaways, plucked from the Wall Street Journal's liveblog of the conversation.

A solid-sounding start for Apple Pay

Apple's new payments service launched on October 20, and Cook said users activated 1 million credit cards in the the first 72 hours. The number sounds impressive, and Cook said the early ramp-up looked “fantastic,” but keep in mind that Apple sold 39 million iPhones...

The great Twitter takeover: How your favorite apps...

Twitter has long had an uneasy relationship with developers who want to tap into the network’s wealth of information to make their own apps better. (See: the 2012 API changes.) But the company’s new suite of tools, called Fabric, is designed to do just that: it offers Twitter’s crash analytics tool, access to Twitter's mobile ad network, and a kit full of ways to put Twitter itself at the heart of any iOS or Android app.

The network opened its Twitter kit to developers ahead of launching Fabric last week. Already tens of thousands of developers around the world are using the tools, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said during Monday’s third-quarter earnings call. Early launch partners are putting the new tools to good use, reaching more than a billion iOS and Android users already, Costolo said. So...

OPEN SESAME

iFixit

There’s new Apple hardware out, and the people at iFixit are once again doing what they do best: disassembling the living crap out of it and posting pictures. This time, they’ve carefully torn down a new Retina iMac into its component pieces, and the images are illuminating.

The Retina iMac’s construction is essentially identical to the previous non-Retina iMac. There are no screws here: the thin aluminum body is glued to the display with a long strip of custom-cut adhesive. Prying that away gives you access to the machine’s internals, but then you’re left with the conundrum of how to get the machine back together when you’re done—the factory adhesive strip isn’t very reusable once it’s been removed...

As Apple Pay rolled out last week, making your checkout experience that much easier at several retailers, some retailers reacted by disabling the feature because it runs against their business interests.

Just another day at the Apple doom mines over at Business Insider.

Hybrid IKEA Desk Could Get You Off Your Duff


IKEA last week introduced a new desk that can be raised and lowered with the push of a button to accommodate both sitting and standing positions. Part of IKEA's Bekant line, the desk serves as a hybrid alternative to traditional desks designed purely for sitting or standing. "This desk promotes a healthy work environment by getting people on their feet," said Karen Haas, IKEA's U.S. sales leader for Workspaces. "With the Bekant electric sit/stand underframe, you can ... change your work position as often as you like, keeping your body active."

iPad Air 2 estimated to cost $275 in materials,...

A report from IHS, via Re/code, has costed out the various components of the iPad Air 2. Naturally, these prices are estimates — the exact nature of the deals Apple negotiates with its suppliers are not common knowledge. The report says that the iPad Air 2 costs Apple $275 in materials, with the screen making up the largest share with costs around $77.

This culminates to a very similar bill-of-materials to the last iPad Air, which IHS estimated was worth $264 in components. This leads to an implied profit margin of 45 percent, but obviously there are more things that have to be accounted for than parts alone...

Apple is eyeing a possible partnership with China’s biggest e-commerce player Alibaba Group that could help bring the company’s Apple Pay service to the country.

“We’re going to talk about getting married later this week,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook at the The Wall Street Journal’s technology conference on Monday.

Cook made the comment after he was asked by the moderator about a possible “marriage” between Apple and Alibaba’s Alipay, an online payment service from China with 300 million registered users.

Cook later said he admired Alibaba’s founder Jack Ma, and added, “If we can find some areas of common space, I love it. I love partnering with people like that.”

Favorite apps: How to Cook Everything, the (almost)...

We write reviews when a great new app comes out, but there are also older ones that we think worthy of recommendation, and How to Cook Everything is one of those.

I’m a decent enough cook, but not an instinctive one: I follow recipes to the letter. If it says to put something in the oven at 170 degrees for 15 minutes, you’ll find me carefully setting the dial and starting a timer, not casually spinning the dial to roughly the right temperature and glancing in ten minutes later to decide that’s good enough.

But there are times when first I need to decipher exactly what the instructions mean. What’s the technical difference between dicing and chopping? Is sautéing the same thing as frying? And what exactly does it mean when it says ‘prepare the chiles’?

If you find yourself empathising with these types of questions, How to Cook Everything may just be the...

CVS Says it Can’t Take Apple Pay, Evaluating Options

Apple doubles down on R&D and acquisitions as it...

Apple’s annual report, filed today, confirmed the obvious: music sales through its iTunes Store have declined. The company did not give a figure, noting only that the drop was more than compensated for by growth in app sales, but a recent WSJ report put the decline as high as 14%.

Growth in net sales from the iTunes Store was driven by increases in revenue from app sales reflecting continued growth in the installed base of iOS devices and the expanded offerings of iOS Apps and related in-App purchases. This was partially offset by a decline in sales of digital music.

The fall in music downloads was of course the primary motivation behind the company’s largest acquisition, the purchase of...

The Retina iMac and its 5K display…as a gaming...

"What's gaming like on the retina iMac, Mother?" "PRODUCING 4K SCREENSHOT TO DEMONSTRATE."

A few weeks ago, Apple updated its iMac desktop line with "Retina" displays—an Apple marketing term used to denote LCDs with a pixel density high enough that individual display elements are invisible to the unaided eye at typical viewing distances. On Apple’s iPhones, the "Retina" moniker means a PPI of at least 300; for MacBook Pro portables, it means about 220. The new iMac’s 27" 5120x2880 LCD panel has a PPI of 218, putting it just below the 15" MacBook Pro’s 220 PPI.

Those numbers translating into a stunning screen is unsurprising, and now that I’ve got one on my desk to play with, I’ll absolutely add my voice to the chorus of other reviewers saying that the new iMac looks amazing. I haven’t yet attached a colorimeter to the display and gone to town—that’s coming in the next few days—but here’s the color space information right out of the box:...

Images claiming to be from a leaked copy of the next version of Outlook for Mac have appeared on the Chinese site cnBeta, which may hint at an impending release for the long-awaited update to the Microsoft Office suite. The program is said to be called "Outlook for Mac 16," and may suggest that the next major Office revision for Mac may be be released alongside a new Windows version.

Debian's Civil War: Has It Really Come to This?


Well it seems no matter how loudly we here in the Linux blogosphere try to hum a happy tune or discuss cheerful FOSS matters, we just can't seem to drown out the shouts and screams coming from those standing too close to the Systemd Inferno. Stand back, people! It's dangerous! The embers, of course, had been hot for some time already before the blaze flared sky-high a few months ago. Now, the conflagration appears to be completely out of control. Need proof? Two words: Debian fork.

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.

Earlier today, Apple CEO Tim Cook was inducted into the Alabama Academy of Honor today, and during his acceptance speech he took some time to address several issues. The first issue was that of racial equality and his admiration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s efforts to promote equal treatment for all.

Cook moved on to slam the state of Alabama, saying that “our state and our nation still have a long way to go before Dr. King’s dream is a reality.” He said that Alabama specifically had taken “too long” to begin making changes and that its...

How to make Yosemite look like System 7

Yes, OS X Yosemite is sexy, modern, and a far cry from what Apple desktops ran 20+ years ago, but that doesn't mean there's no value in nostalgia. Way back when Macs ran on CPUs with speeds of 33MHz (or even less), OS 7 -- also called System 7 -- was...

Paris / New York

Vimeo:

Paris & NY, like many large cities, have a lot in common ; transport, infrastructure, national monuments. I wanted to explore not only these comparisons but also the differences, in order to expose the beauty and individuality of each. What you cannot deny is the vibrancy and explosion of character each city has and I thought split-screen with timelapse would be a good way to help convey this.

Turns out, it’s an ad for British Airways but it’s still a fun thing to watch especially when you consider the effort that had to go into pre- and post-production.

But does he cheat a little bit at the end with the “LOVE” sculpture? Isn’t that in Philadelphia?
