Apple Watch battery life, CPU specs leaked

Some Apple Watch battery specs may have just surfaced.

Per 9to5Mac, sources with knowledge of the Apple Watch’s development have stated the specific performance targets Apple wants to achieve for the Apple Watch battery, but the actual numbers may fall short of those targets.

According to sources, Apple opted to use a relatively powerful processor and high-quality screen for the Apple Watch, both of which contribute to significant power drain. Running a stripped-down version of iOS codenamed SkiHill, the Apple S1 chip inside the Apple Watch is surprisingly close in performance to the version of Apple’s A5 processor found inside the current-generation iPod touch, while the Retina-class color display is capable of updating at a fluid 60 frames per...

Report: Apple Watch aims to last 19 hours per charge

If all goes according to plan, your Apple Watch should last about 19 hours on a single charge, according to the latest scoop from 9to5Mac.

The Apple-centric site reported Thursday that the S1 chip in the Apple Watch is similar in power to the A5 processor in an iPod touch, and the display has a refresh rate of 60 frames per second. That gives the watch impressive performance and a stunning screen, but it also means shorter battery life. According to 9to5Mac's unnamed sources, Apple really wants the watch to stand up to 2.5 to 4 hours of intense use (fitness-tracking, games, or apps), or three days in standby mode when the watch face display is off. The 19-hour goal is a combination of active and passive use—but mostly passive.

The problem I had with the older models was the digital artifacts that you heard in the models and when changing tunings. These guitars have regular magnetic pickups, so first and foremost, it is an electric guitar. All of the electronics can be turned off completely if you want to play it like that. When turned on, the electronics give the guitar something really special that you won’t find anywhere else, all with no artifacts.

In the realm of “cool/useful operating system tricks”, this ranks up pretty high.

The cool cats at TekRevue have posted a guide as to how to perform batch renaming in OS X Yosemite. This becomes handy as your number of files grows and you need a decent system for organization.

Prior to OS X Yosemite, Mac users looking to batch rename files in the OS X Finder would have to turn to third party tools. Renaming single files was simple enough, but if you had to rename multiple files, you’d need apps like Renamer or NameChanger.

With OS X Yosemite, however, Apple has integrated basic batch renaming capabilities directly into Finder. To use it, simply highlight or select multiple files in a Finder window, right-click (or Control-click) on the selected items, and choose Rename.

Review: STM Studio for iPad Air 2

STM has released a new version of its Studio ($40) case for iPad Air 2. The case, which is designed specifically for iPad Air 2, combines a snap-on polycarbonate hard shell back with a soft synthetic leather folio cover. Studio uses a magnetic closure that wraps around the case to keep it closed. The shell is thin, but as we've seen with most iPad Air 2 cases, it could probably be a bit thinner and still offer proper support while accentuating the device's profile. Studio's cover folds into a stand, as well. This new version of Studio is very similar to the original iPad Air version of the case; we'll keep the review brief.{/exp:char_limit}

Mac: Apple Logic Pro X 10.1

Apple’s Logic Pro studio app has become a staple in the professional recording industry, and the debut of Logic Pro X a couple of years ago made some huge strides in making the app even more accessible and polished. With the release of the latest update, Logic Pro X 10.1 ($200), Apple adds a handful of new advanced features such as an intelligent beat profile for electronic and hip hop styles, as well as some handy Yosemite integrations such as MailDrop and AirDrop support.

BlackBerry’s “net neutrality” plan: Force Apple to...

BlackBerry CEO John Chen laid out a net neutrality plan of his own yesterday in a letter to US lawmakers and in a post on the Canadian company's blog. One part of his proposal in particular has garnered attention: Chen thinks net neutrality rules in the US should force Apple and Netflix to make apps for BlackBerry hardware.

Net neutrality proposals generally focus on Internet service providers, banning discrimination against Internet content and applications. Chen wants makers of software to have to follow neutrality rules as well.

While BlackBerry makes its own messaging service available for multiple platforms, Apple has not returned the favor. Netflix has also "discriminated against BlackBerry customers" by not releasing a BlackBerry app. Chen wrote:

Could Microsoft's Foggy Windows 10 Plan Be Any...


The most important and daring move that Microsoft made Wednesday is far and away making the upgrade to Windows 10 free. Seems dirt-simple and intuitive on the surface, but it represents a startling and abrupt shift in both how users will relate to Microsoft and how Microsoft innovates with Windows going forward. As long-time readers know, I'm an unabashed Apple fan -- but I can appreciate a smart move when I see one, and no doubt about it, making Windows a free upgrade is a smart move. So what is Microsoft doing, exactly?

Review: CalDigit’s Mac hub Thunderbolt Station 2...

Despite USB 3.0’s growing popularity with consumers, Thunderbolt remains a viable alternative for professional users, particularly video makers willing to pay a premium for guaranteed high speeds. Over the past year, several Thunderbolt 2 hubs have come to market — boxes with one Thunderbolt 2 connection to a computer, one for a Thunderbolt accessory, and multiple ports to connect USB, audio, video, and Ethernet accessories. The idea: keep all of your gear hooked up to the hub, then use a single cable to connect it all to your Mac.

Known for large, heavy, professional-grade Mac accessories, CalDigit has just released Thunderbolt Station 2...

Former Beats Music CEO and current Apple employee Ian Rogers is participating in a charity fundraiser through the online auction site Charitybuzz. With the estimated value pegged at $3,000, the fundraiser has a starting bid of $600, and runs for two weeks starting today. The highest bidder will have the opportunity to meet the former Beats Music CEO in either Los Angeles (where Beats is headquartered) or Cupertino (near Apple’s campus) for a private lunch meeting.

Rogers isn’t the first high-ranking Apple employee to participate in a Charitybuzz auction, although his fundraiser may end up being the most affordable. Apple’s Eddy Cue similarly...

10 clear cases to show off your iPhone's design

Image by Macworld UK

Phone cases are a necessary evil. They add extra weight and thickness to your iPhone, and they cover up the pretty gold, silver, or space gray exterior you spent an extra five minutes picking out. But you suck it up, because it’s better to slap an ugly case on your iPhone than it is to pay for a pricey screen repair.

BlackBerry Messenger for iPhone (it’s OK to laugh)

If you can’t beat ‘em, tell the government to force ‘em to let you beat ‘em. That’s the approach BlackBerry CEO John Chen wants to take to mobile software development. Today Chen wrote in a blog post on the BlackBerry website that he believes the issue of net neutrality requires the government to not only promote and protect neutrality not only among wireless and broadband carriers, but also among app and content providers.

Chen argues that it’s pointless to tell Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, and other carriers that they can’t discriminate against certain data while still allowing applications and content providers to discriminate against certain platforms.

Twitter says that the tweets it shows are determined by engagement, as well as other factors. Users who spend a lot of time in the Twitter app already won’t see this new banner as often as those who only open the app every now and then.

Among the new additions to Logic Pro X in version 10.1 includes 10 new Drummers, the intelligent beat profile feature, focused on hip hop and electronic styles.

Google’s move to become a wireless carrier

The new service is expected run on Sprint and T-Mobile’s networks, two people familiar with the product say. Google is expected to reach deals to buy wholesale access to those carriers’ mobile voice and data networks, making it a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, they say.

I’m kind of ambivalent about this, to be honest. Google has never done a very good job selling phones, so I don’t know how they will make this work. I’m just having a hard time wrapping my head around it.
