Facebook’s rumored camera app sounds like a Snapchat...

Facebook is reportedly building a new camera app that crosses the spontaneity of Snapchat with live streaming.

The Wall Street Journal’s unnamed sources describe the app as a “camera-first” format, similar to Snapchat. Users who are shooting a video may also be able to switch to a Facebook Live stream. This would not be a separate network, but rather a way to feed more photos and videos into Facebook proper.

Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program now an option...

Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program has a couple of advantages: You can upgrade your phone every year directly through Apple, and the monthly fee you pay includes AppleCare+ protection. But Apple restricted upgrade sign-ups to in-store purchases—until now.

Today when you go to buy a new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus online, Apple’s upgrade program isn’t just an option—it’s the default selection. Instead of paying your carrier a monthly fee to buy an iPhone, you can pay Apple $32.41 a month for a 16GB 6s or $36.58 for the 6s Plus with no money down. You’ll still have to pay your carrier for voice and data. T-Mobile customers have to upgrade in-store, but eligible AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon customers can sign up for the program online.

Liveblog: Apple’s Q2 2016 earnings call starts at...

iPhone sales account for a huge chunk of Apple's revenue, so slower iPhone sales means a lot less revenue. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple will report its earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 at 5pm EDT/2pm PDT/10pm UK, and as usual Senior Technology Editor Lee Hutchinson and I will be following along with the call and providing charts and commentary. Apple is expected to report its first year-over-year revenue decline since 2003, mainly due to lower iPhone sales.

Apple's own forecasts predict revenue between $50 billion and $53 billion, well short of the $58 billion it earned in Q2 of 2015 though still higher than the $45.6 billion in revenue it earned in Q2 of 2014. The outsized success of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year set a tough benchmark for the company, and pent-up demand for the...

Dropbox wants to stretch desktop file storage to...

Dropbox has a futuristic vision for how its users will be able to share massive files and have quick access to them on their computers, without their hard drives overflowing.

The cloud storage company announced a new initiative at its Open conference in London on Tuesday called Project Infinite. It's a push to create a new Dropbox interface that allows users to see all of the files they've stored in the cloud in their computer's file explorer without requiring them to keep local copies of each document, image, spreadsheet or other file. 

With Project Infinite, users will be able to manage their files in the cloud by moving them around inside the Mac OS X Finder or Windows File Explorer, just like they would any local files that are taking up space on their hard drives.

Toontrack release Classic Rock drum grooves

Still to this day, the pummeling grooves of John Bonham, Ian Paice, Keith Moon and Bill Ward continue to inspire writers and underline the fact that in classic rock, the drums are – and should be – loud, obnoxious and play as much of a leading part as anything else in a song.

I have quite a few of these drum groove libraries from Toontrack. They do a great job with them and I’ll be adding this one to my collection.

As these economic forces bear down on DIYers, the market will shudder hard and eventually reboot. Here's how that will work.

Well, there were too main reasons: Apple Pencil and Smart Connector.

Apple has already confirmed that iPhone sales are slowing, but things may be worse than they seem. In a Monday research note, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that he doesn’t expect the iPhone to have a very good year. In fact, shipments are expected to fall to 190 million, less than the 193 million iPhones shipped in 2014.

Shipments do not equal sales, but there’s reason to believe that declining shipments and declining sales are related. Apple has been selling iPhones for years now, and presumably can anticipate demand for new devices. The typically reliable Kuo outlined reasons for his prediction, including the lack of “many attractive selling points for the iPhone 7,” 9to5Mac reported.

While it’s been estimated that the Apple Watch has sold 12 million units within the device’s launch year, it’s hard to know exactly how many have gone out the door or what’s in store for the next generation.

Either way, a new rumor has it that that Apple Watch 2 will include cellular connectivity and a beefier processor so apps will load more quickly. That might mean yet another data plan to pay for, but the watch would function on its own instead of being tethered to an iPhone.

Other features that would make the Apple Watch 2 more compelling would include GPS and a longer battery life as well as additional health-companion aspects.

Review: OWC’s Aura PCIe flash storage lets you...

As an owner of a Late 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina Display, it’s slowly beginning to show its age. However, I find that this machine, an i7-powered rig with 16GB of RAM, is still plenty powerful for the applications that I run on a day-to-day basis. For example, with Final Cut Pro X, it’s not the fastest machine in the world (it lacks dedicated graphics), but it’s still plenty competent when it comes to editing and exporting 4K videos.

The biggest bottleneck that I’ve encountered with this computer is its storage capabilities, and that’s something I’ve been trying to deal with since the day I purchased it. With only 256 GB of flash storage, space has been hard to come by since day one. That wouldn’t be so bad if there was a way to upgrade the amount of internal storage, but sadly there has been no upgrade solution…until now.

Back in early March, OWC made a splash by announcing the...

Why Is the PC Industry Trying to Kill the PC?


Every time the "PC is dead" topic comes up, an old Monty Python movie comes to mind, and I'll bet you can guess which one. PCs are on almost every desk, and the installed base is measured not in the hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands -- it is measured in the hundred millions. Brian Krzanich, Intel's latest CEO, last week announced a massive layoff tied to the company's missing its quarterly numbers, and once again the alarm sounded. Was the PC is dead, or was Intel's miss just another new-CEO mistake?

External Link: iBooks Store and iTunes Movies Shut...

Apple has had a smoother time rolling out its online services in China than other tech giants, but that may be coming to an end. Only six months after being introduced in the country, the Chinese government has shut down the iBooks Store and iTunes Movies services. The shutdown is thought to be due to the government’s desire to keep the Chinese people away from Western culture. “We hope to make books and movies available again to our customers in China as soon as possible,” said an Apple spokeswoman.

External Link: U.S. Government Drops iPhone Fight in...

Last Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice dropped its legal bid to force Apple to unlock an iPhone linked to a New York drug case. The FBI said that it had managed to get the iPhone’s passcode, making a court order unnecessary, but on Monday another reason came to light: the New York court had denied the government’s request. It’s starting to look like the government is using iPhones it already has access to in order to seek out precedent-setting court rulings, but dropping the cases when the chances of winning look slim.

Report: Faster Apple Watch 2 may feature built-in...

Apple Watch has been on the market for a year now, and The Wall Street Journal has a new report in which it compares the product’s estimated sales to the original iPhone’s in its first year. Apple has never released hard Apple Watch sales numbers as it does for iPhones, iPads, and Macs, but WSJ says twice as many Apple Watches have been sold during the first year as iPhones during its first year. Apple sold 192.3 million iPhones during its first four quarters on the market.

Obviously that’s not an apples to apples comparison, but it’s one way to paint Apple Watch positively as iPhone has taken off with quarter after quarter growth until now. Tomorrow Apple is scheduled to release its quarterly earnings report covering the January through March...

It’s fine to get lots of notifications from Slack in a low-volume team or one where you need to stay up to date on everything that’s happening, but as traffic increases or you need to focus on other tasks, Slack’s notification controls will become increasingly important. Glenn Fleishman explains how Slack thinks about presence and how you can set the notifications to meet your need in this chapter of “Take Control of Slack Basics.”

Home, one of the best HomeKit apps for iOS, gains 3D...

Apple doesn’t include a Home app for HomeKit like it does a Health app for HealthKit, but Matthias Hochgatterer’s Home app is a worthy solution for anyone diving into Apple’s Siri-controlled home automation platform. In testing various HomeKit-compatible smart accessories, Home for iOS has been a critical piece of the puzzle in making everything work correctly and reliably.

Siri controls HomeKit, but third-party apps from various accessory makers are needed for creating scenes and triggers that really make home automation come to life. Eve does the best job of making one app for all HomeKit accessories, but a dedicated HomeKit app with excellent support for all...

iFixit releases teardown report of 2016 12-inch...

The cool cats at iFixit have just completed the full teardown of Apple’s new 2016 12-inch Retina MacBook. While the notebook is essentially the same as the previous generation, there are some notable differences.

First, Apple replaced a tri-wing screw with a much more common Phillips screw, although it continues to use its proprietary Pentalobe screws on the exterior of the case. In the teardown, iFixit noted that it discovered hinge screws for the device which are “filled with some sort of substance that disintegrates when you insert a screwdriver.” The site speculates that it appears to be an Apple effort at “tamper-evident screws,” which in theory could allow the company to know if a third-party or DIY repair attempt has been made voiding warranty.

Review: The Dux for iPad Pro is a lightweight,...

Ever since the iPad Pro came out, it seemed like an obvious third-party accessory would be a case that could also hold a Pencil. However, six months on, the number of iPad Pro cases with good Apple Pencil compatibility is still pretty small. You are by no means spoilt for choice if you are looking to buy an iPad Pro case with Apple Pencil holder.

The Dux ($59.95) is a solid attempt at such a case, a lightweight 12.9-inch iPad enclosure providing some protection against drops and bangs, with an Apple Pencil holster on the side. Its simplicity is refreshing, but that brings with it some shortcomings. Read on for my review.

The iPhone 7, expected to debut later this year, is not believed to be a major design overhaul from the iPhone 6s, but that doesn’t mean it won’t include some substantial exterior changes, at least according to one sketchy Chinese rumor site. The reports indicate that the iPhone 7 could feature a digital touch-sensitive Home button, essentially making the iPhone front completely flush, replacing the current physical clicky hardware button. This would help make the iPhone 7 completely waterproof and dustproof, via Storm …

The DOJ had pledged to fight on after a judge ruled the government’s use of the All Writs Act to compel Apple’s assistance was illegal, but dropped the case after obtaining the passcode to access the device from a third-party. That leaves a 50-page ruling supporting…

Apps designed with the native SDK that launched with watchOS 2 have…

Our friends over at iFixit are doing their ritual teardown of Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook, and while the new device is essentially the same as the previous generation save for some refreshed components, the repair guide site also noticed some tweaks as far as repairability goes.

Most notably, Apple replaced a tri-wing screw with a much more common Phillips screw, which is always a plus for allowing easier repairs, although it continues to use its proprietary Pentalobe screws on the exterior of the case. That might be the only new positive for the updated MacBook, however, as iFixit also notes that it discovered hinge screws for the device which are “filled with some sort of substance that disintegrates when you insert a screwdriver.” The site speculates that it appears to be an Apple effort at “tamper-evident screws,” which in theory could allow...

.related-stories { display: none !important; }

Designing a portable gadget is all about compromise. The main tension is between power and portability: how light can I make this phone without making it unacceptably slow or killing battery life, and how fast can I make this laptop without making the battery and necessary heatsinks and fans too large to comfortably carry around?

Every laptop you can buy exists somewhere on this spectrum, and the new version of Apple’s Retina MacBook still prioritizes portability over pretty much everything else. At...

Apple’s organizational crossroads

Ben Thompson, writing for Stratechery:

I do believe that Apple’s products — their devices anyways — are superior, particularly if you value the finer details of industrial design, build quality, and little UI details like scrolling and responsiveness that seem so simple but are so hard to get right. And, frankly, it’s not surprising that Apple is good at this stuff for the exact reasons laid out above: everything about the company is designed to produce integrated devices that don’t sacrifice perfection for the sake of modularity.

But…

The problem is that everything that goes into creating these jewel-like devices works against being good at services.

Apple is more and more a services company. Very interesting analysis.

The Bloomberg report describes how the factory is managing its workforce, tracking hours via automated systems, and tackling labor issues like overtime. This is the first time Pegatron has allowed official press to photograph the insides of the factory, where 50,000 people work on the floor.

Today is National Pretzel Day; celebrate accordingly

Today is National Pretzel Day. To help you celebrate, I’ve rounded up some pretzel-related apps for the iPhone and iPad (sorry, but I couldn’t find any pretzel related apps at the Mac App Store).

Available for the iPhone and iPad at the Apple App Store are:

  • Sugar Cafe - Pretzel Maker. Break out your cooking skills and choose a tasty pretzel recipe. From chocolate pretzels to marshmallow pretzel salad, there are lots of recipes from which to choose. Sugar Cafe - Pretzel Make is free, but does tout in-app purchases. 
  • If you want to make “virtual” pretzels, check out Make Pretzels! In the game you drag ingredients from the kitchen and put ‘em in a bowl. You can mix, roll dough, bake, and decorate your creations. Make Pretzels! is free, but does offer in-app purchases.

Beyonce’s ‘Tidal exclusive’ album, Lemonade, now...

Initially billed as an exclusive to Tidal, Beyonce’s new Lemonade album is now available to buy on iTunes. Jay-Z’s streaming music service had been touting the album as an exclusive location to listen to Beyonce’s latest music. Whilst Tidal maintains exclusive streaming rights, the album is now being freely sold for download elsewhere.

Tidal has attempted similar stunts in the past, with Kanye famously stating his album ‘The Life of Pablo’ would never be on Apple Music and would be exclusive to Tidal. However, a track from the album soon showed up on Apple’s services a few weeks later. There is currently a class action lawsuit forming around the false claims of exclusivity.
