In this week’s episode of The Logic Pros, we are taking a look at the Moog Sub 37. Another analog instrument from legendary synth powerhouse Moog, the Sub 37 takes it up a notch offering a much deeper feature set and refined workflow compared to its baby brother, Sub Phatty.

In last week’s review we found that Sub Phatty was a more than capable instrument that brings Moog’s world famous sound at an, all things considered, affordable price tag. While the Sub 37 will certainly be reaching into your pockets a little deeper, it comes with just about everything the Sub...

From the YouTube page:

Remember the first time standing on a high-dive at your local pool? It was a little terrifying, right? Maybe 10 feet high? Imagine what it would be like to stand on a platform nearly 59 meters high, taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and perched on a cliff above a tiny natural pool of water. Yeah…no thanks. But don’t worry, Laso Schaller’s POV of the jump is enough to make your stomach flip. Take a look at the man’s world record cliff jump, and prepare yourself for one of the gnarliest POV shots ever.

The whole thing was great to watch, but that POV shot at the end was thrilling. Full screen this puppy.

External Link: The Sordid Messiness of the Ashley...

At The Verge, Casey Newton explores just how messy things could get with the release of stolen information from AshleyMadison.com, a Web site for connecting people who want to have affairs. Other high profile breaches have mostly revolved around credit card numbers or other relatively innocuous (if financially troubling) pieces of data. But since the Ashley Madison data reveals — or could be interpreted to reveal — far more personal information, it opens up a family-sized can of worms. The takeaway, which may be too late for up to 36 million people, is that you want to be very, very careful about what sort of confidential information you share online, since even sites with the best of intentions can fall prey to determined attackers.

External Link: Adobe InDesign CC 2015 Stops...

David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepcion of InDesignSecrets have noted on their site that the current Creative Cloud version of Adobe InDesign no longer installs a wide array of fonts by default. Thanks to the Adobe TypeKit subscription that’s included with Creative Cloud, plenty of fonts are available, but by installing only three basic fonts (without even full bold and italic for Minion Pro), Adobe is making it hard for students who can’t necessarily install fonts at will, trainers who need to create documents that are usable on clean installations, people behind TypeKit-blocking firewalls or who are offline, and any designer who needs to configure a new installation by downloading fonts one at time. Cloud services have many advantages, but it’s important for companies to recognize the downsides as well.

‘It May Seem Silly’

Jon Evans, in a piece for AOL/TechCrunch headlined “Don’t Be Apple”:

There is so much to admire about Apple. They make superb,
beautiful products. Their amazing comeback story is unparalleled
in corporate history. […] So why do I think they represent so
much of what’s wrong with the tech world? It’s because they have,
I think, an almost Shakespearean tragic flaw: their obsession with
centralized corporate control of the devices they sell. […]

What could go wrong? Well, let’s get dystopically speculative for
a moment. Can you remember some of the most hyperbolic
overreactions to the fall of the World Trade Center, and how they
were welcomed by large swathes of the American public? Can you
imagine a future in which, following a similar tragedy, Apple
rolls over and becomes a de facto arm of surveillance states? I
sure can — and Apple’s...

Apple launches replacement program for faulty iPhone...

Apple's iPhone 6 Plus has the best camera of any iPhone (at least until we get new ones next month), but it's not completely problem-free. Apple has announced an iSight Camera Replacement Program for iPhone 6 Plus models sold between the phone's launch in September of 2014 and January of 2015. "A small percentage" of phones sold included a faulty part that could make pictures taken with the rear camera look blurry. The problem doesn't affect the standard iPhone 6, so the 6 Plus' optical image stabilization component could be at fault. The front-facing FaceTime camera is also unaffected.

If your phone fits this description, head to the program page linked above and enter your serial number. If your phone needs fixed, you can take it to an Apple Authorized Service...

Apple sued over Apple ID verification system

Another day, another lawsuit. A Nevada-base company called Verify Smart Corp. is suing Apple for — wait it for it — patent infringement. The company alleges that Apple's 2-step Apple ID verification system/process violates their patent, reports Patently Apple.

Verify claims Apple makes, uses, tests, markets and sells or otherwise provides a system and method for enabling a user to authenticate their identity when initiating an electronic transaction, using a one-time pass-code sent to the user's mobile phone. The company also alleges that Apple's two-step verification system is designed to enable secure transactions for their customers and infringes on their patent (number 8,285,648) for a "system and method for verifying a user's identify in electronic transactions."

If I’m counting correctly, this is the seventh lawsuit (two involving Shanda Games) filed against Apple this...

Apple announces iSight Camera replacement program...

Apple has started an iSight Camera replacement program for the iPhone 6 Plus. The company says it has determined that, in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry. 

The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015. If your iPhone 6 Plus is producing blurry photos and falls into the eligible serial number range, Apple will replace your device's iSight camera, free of charge.

The iSight camera is located on the back of your iPhone 6 Plus. If your iPhone 6 Plus is in working order and exhibits the symptom described above, use the serial number checker below to see if it is eligible for this program. This program only applies to the iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple Launches Free iPhone 6 Plus Camera Replacement...

Mark Wilson writes: Complaints about the camera of the iPhone 6 Plus have been plentiful, and Apple has finally acknowledged that there is a problem. It's not something that affects all iPhone 6 Plus owners, but the company says that phones manufactured between September 2014 and January 2015 could include a failed camera component. Apple has set up a replacement program which enables those with problems with the rear camera to obtain a replacement. Before you get too excited, it is just replacement camera components that are on offer, not replacement iPhones. You'll need to check to see if your phone is eligible at the program website.

Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard review: An...

The iPad accessory market is full of keyboards. Most of them double up as cases, they’re about as big as the iPad and they’re not well optimized for other devices. The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard is different. It’s small enough to carry around in your pocket when folded, and works with iOS, Windows and Android devices. What’s more, you can have it paired to two devices at once and switch between them with the press of a button. It’s safe to say that this is one of the most versatile and portable Bluetooth keyboards on the market. This review was written entirely on it.

When closed, the keyboard measures just 147.6mm wide, 125.3mm high and 11.5mm thin....

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek on Friday issued a public apology for poor communications regarding the company's new privacy policy. The new policy, which took effect Wednesday, immediately triggered alarm. Several tech publications railed against the terms, and Minecraft creator Markus Persson engaged Spotify CEO Daniel Ek in a Twitter debate that ended with Persson and others quitting the music service. In light of Ek's subsequent explanation, the debate now appears focused on whether the brouhaha was justified, or if Spotify's critics profoundly overreacted.

The cases are designed with military grade drop protection, and meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G drop test standards. That protection comes from a hard outside shell with a cushioning silicone wrapper inside and on the edges. There’s a slightly raised bezel to protect screens from drops right onto the phone face. With all of the protection, the Inked Luxury cases weigh in at only 1.8 ounces.

Hip-hop artist Dr. Dre’s controversial and storied past was bound to become an issue for Apple at some point after it bought the company he co-founded for $3 billion last year. Now Apple is hoping it can let the rapper’s history live in the past, which is especially tricky as it promotes the biofilm “Compton” depicting the rapper’s entrance into fame.

The biographical film, which was produced with close cooperation from Dr. Dre, has been criticized for omitting decades old allegations that the artist physically abused women. Today both Dr. Dre and Apple released statements addressing the controversy, Dre saying that he deeply apologizes for his actions 25 years ago and adding that “it has forever impacted all of our lives” while Apple said that “we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”...

Google Chrome 46 to include Mac-specific changes,...

If the current builds of the Chrome web browser have been driving you mildly nuts, Google might have some fixes on the way.

A test build of Google’s forthcoming Chrome 46 makes substantial improvements to the performance of the Web browser on the Mac.

The build appears to halve Chrome’s memory consumption, and make formely slow tabs much faster. At the same time, the browser also appears to consume fewer CPU and power resources.

The fixes are part of a wider effort to stamp out bugs, improve Javascript performance and provide better support for graphics on the Mac. Google has also been working on porting a Chrome OS feature...

This might be worth snagging.

1Password for iOS has been updated, version 5.5 allowing users access to a Touch ID button under the Master Password field so you can choose to sign in using your finger print even if you accidentally hit cancel on the first request. Tapping the fingerprint button prompts the system Touch ID unlock screen.

The new version also features an improvement to how the app can stay unlocked between uses in different apps. Previously 1Password’s extension in other apps required being unlocked by password, passcode, or Touch ID each time. Now, the 1Password extension and 1Password app share the same unlock time limits.

External Link: Apple Finally Acknowledges Dr. Dre’s...

Since the release of the film “Straight Outta Compton,” rapper Dr. Dre has been under fire for decades-old allegations of misogyny and violence against women. Dre, who has served as an executive at Apple since it acquired Beats Electronics last year, has issued a public apology to the New York Times. “Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again,” Dre said. Apple lent Dre support in a statement, saying, “Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago. We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

Declining movie attendance, higher ticket prices...

2014 was a terrible year for movie attendance, with audience numbers plunging to the lowest they've been in two decades, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ironically, this could be good news for Apple.

Approximately 1.26 billion consumers purchased cinema tickets between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014. That's the lowest number since 1.21 billion in 1995 and not that far ahead of 1994 (1.24 billion). The last time admissions fell below the 1.3 billion mark was in 2011, when only 1.28 billion people when to the movies.

What's more, a 2014 Harris survey of 2,311 adults polled online says that 68% of U.S. adults went to the movies at least once last year. However, two-thirds of Americans say they're going to the movies less often now than a few years ago, with a majority (57%)  adding that they prefer watching films at home over going to the theater. The main...

Spotify CEO: Sorry about our super creepy new...

Spotify is in full damage-control mode after the streaming music service’s new privacy policy spurred a wave of Internet outrage. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek apologized for the kerfuffle on Friday, and promised that the company is revising its privacy policy in the coming weeks to “better reflect” its intentions.

Spotify users were appalled when the company changed the terms of its privacy policy this week to allow the app to access your phone’s sensor data, photos, contacts, location, and voice controls. Why would a streaming music app need all of that information?

Samsung tries to lure away iPhone users with 30-day...

Samsung's sales have been sliding downward for a while now, and it's getting creative in its attempts to win new users. Today it announced an "Ultimate Test Drive" promotion targeted at iPhone users: Pay $1, and you can try a Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5 for 30 days on your choice of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile.

If that sounds appealing to you, visit the samsungpromotions.com site on your iPhone and choose your carrier and model. As of this writing, it looks like some of the phones are "not available" on AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile, but this may just be an early bug that gets ironed out as the promotion runs.

These phones will come with activated SIM cards so you don't actually need to stop using your iPhone to try one. Unfortunately...

Discovered this week by Wirtschaft and noted by Patently Apple, the trademarks “One More Thing” (1261461) and “Swatch One More Thing” (1261460) appear to have been filed for in November of 2014, published in Switzerland this May, and registered across 44 countries yesterday. Swatch has...

The Field Tote is rugged, handsome — and manly

Hey, men, WaterField Designs' US$119 Field Tote is a manly tote that's rugged and handsome and manly and …

Well, okay, it's basically a man purse. But — darn it! — it's still manly. Made of waxed canvas and full grain, distressed leather, the Field Tote has the looks, size and features for guys to use professionally or casually. Though it only weighs one pound, you can pack a lot of gear into this baby when you're hitting the road. It's flexible enough that, when empty, can be folded and stuffed inside another bag such as a suitcase.

The leather handles are long enough to sling the Field Tote over your shoulder. Yet they're short enough that you can carry the tote by your side without it dragging the ground. 

You can stow your MacBook or iPad in the Field Tote or stuff in your gym towels or magazines. There's a quick access pouch...

An anonymous reader writes: A vulnerability in Apple's iOS sandbox, which could affect personal information as well as configuration settings, has been discovered by Appthority's Enterprise Mobility Threat Team. It affects all mobile device management (MDM) clients, and any mobile applications distributed by an MDM that use the "Managed App Configuration" setting for private data. An attacker could potentially create a rogue app, perhaps masquerading as a productivity tool to increase the chances of it getting installed, and then distribute the attack by means of the iTunes store or "spear fishing" email attacks.

We are just weeks away from the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple’s newest addition to the iPhone lineup, but the fate of the iPhone 5c successor, a new 4-inch iPhone dubbed by the rumor mill as the ‘iPhone 6c’, remains unclear.

When Apple upped the screen sizes last year, it did not offer an update to the iPhone 5c. This has led much speculation that Apple was saving an update for the 4-inch iPhone to next year to allow the big screened iPhone 6 take the limelight. Since then, there has been many conflicting reports over the release of Apple’s next 4-inch iPhone. A Chinese media report indicates that Apple will actually release a smaller iPhone 6c in November.

Good movies, good games?

Once upon a time, truly not that long ago, nearly every big Hollywood movie release came with a console and portable game to match. They were often expensive ($50-60) and rarely very good, so the reputation of terrible movie games grew and lingered.

Nowadays, with the rise of mobile gaming, film studios have found it much more beneficial to release iOS games—usually free-to-play ones, too—to promote their flicks with less expense and many more potential players to reach. But are these games any good? Well, sometimes—but the middling reputation from the console days hasn’t disappeared. Here’s a look at the biggest iOS movie games of summer 2015, and whether they lived up to their namesakes.

Nothing Could Be Finer Than Point Linux


Point Linux 3.0, dubbed "Agni," combines a solid operating system with a traditional no-frills approach to performance and reliability. In several ways, Point Linux belies the criticisms of Linux desktop newcomers who find that Linux not simple and straightforward to use. Point Linux is easy to install. It has a clear interface. Everything works out of the box. Two reasons for this glowing assessment are Point's roots in Debian GNU/Linux and its integration of either the GNOME 2 fork desktop MATE or a slightly tweaked version of Xfce.

The ad marks the first time Apple itself has advertised Apple Pay, although some banks and credit cards have run Apple Pay ads independently.

In the ad, Apple touts that using Apple Pay is more secure than using a credit card, in addition it being faster and simpler than other payment methods. Apple also highlights the fact that Apple Pay is supported in over 1 million stores and counting.

"In this case, the hackers seemed to have taken all necessary precautions to protect their anonymity while utilizing the Dark Web via Tor," said Troy Gill, a senior security analyst with AppRiver.

Apple will reportedly debut a new, impressively revamped Apple TV at a September event, though the company hasn't firmed this. Hopefully the rumor is true because Apple's set-top box needs something to beef up sales.

Roku continues to lead streaming media device sales in the U.S. with 34 percent of units sold in 2014. Google is second with 23%, and new entrant Amazon overtook Apple for third place, says Barbara Kraus, director of Research, Parks Associates. 

On the other hand, the Parks Associates report says that Google Chromecast has 19 percent of the market, the Apple TV has 17 percent, and Amazon Fire TV devices have 14...
