The day a shelter dog gets adopted is one of the happiest days of its life. No matter where an animal came from or what it’s been through, suddenly it knows that better times are ahead.

This is awesome.

4-year-old boy in UK uses Siri to get help for his...

Siri is an AI with a lot of talents, and it teamed up with Roman, a 4-year-old boy in the UK, to help him get help for his mother. While kids in the UK are taught to dial 999 to summon emergency services, Roman used a different method to call: he unlocked his mother's iPhone by pressing her thumb to her iPhone's Touch ID home button, then asked Siri for help. Here's a recording of the complete conversation between Roman and an emergency services operator:

Thanks to Roman knowing how to unlock his mother's iPhone, ask Siri to call for help, and then providing his home address to the police operator, officers and paramedics were able to show up, force entry into the house, and help Roman's mom regain consciousness before taking her to the hospital.

Metropolitan Police Chief Superintendent Ade Adelekan said that "Hearing this call brings home the importance of...

Opinion: A spring iPad event now seems unlikely, but...

A spring iPad event this year has so far been taken almost as established fact. Apple has held one annually in recent years, and we’ve heard multiple reports about what to expect this year – one of them even suggesting a specific date.

The flagship product expected to be announced at the event was a new 10.5-inch iPad with a micro-bezel design that would allow it to have the same external dimensions as the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

But recent events suggest to me that, while the 10.5-inch iPad is probably real, it’s unlikely it will be announced at a spring event. Instead, it’s more likely to be at WWDC – or even later …

I love the artwork here, glad they are still expanding the set to be ever more representational. As this set expands, we’re going to need better search tools. Scrolling through pages and pages of emoji is reaching a breaking point.

Text substitution is one solution. Keeping a page of recently used emoji (as iOS does now) is also helpful, though perhaps Apple could add in a pane of configurable favorites?

Note this, in bold letters on the Emojipedia page:

Apple ranks highest in overall satisfaction in the smartphone full-service carrier segment with a score of 840 (out of 1000), followed closely by Samsung (839). Apple ranks highest overall in performance and features dimensions, according to the J.D. Power 2017 Full-Service Smartphone Satisfaction Study, which was released today. Customer satisfaction is much higher among smartphone owners who use their device to operate other connected home services such as smart thermostats and smart appliances, notes the research group.

Overall satisfaction with smartphones is 49 points higher among customers with voice-activated home assistants such as Amazon Echo (881 vs. 832 on a 1,000-point scale) than those without such a device. Significant gaps also are seen among customers with a smart thermostat than without (865 vs. 831, respectively) and customers with a smart appliance than without (866 vs. 832). Overall...

The new alerts, flagged with help from independent fact-checkers, are designed to prevent users from sharing fake news stories unwittingly, but they will not prevent people from sharing the story if they still choose.

When you try to share a story that has been flagged as phony, Facebook will insert an alert at the bottom of the post creation window (pictured at top). The alert will include a red triangle with an exclamation point, and a message such as “Disputed by Snopes.com and Associated Press.”

As reported yesterday, Apple bought the Workflow app and team. This could be great news, assuming this signals a move on Apple’s part to open up the black box and give users the ability to automate pretty much everything their heart desires, something they’ve long been able to do on the Mac.

Federico Viticci, MacStories:

At this stage, it’s not clear what Apple’s plans for Workflow in the long term might be. I have a few theories, but this isn’t the time to speculate. I’ll say this, though: Workflow has been the driving force behind my decision to embrace the iPad as my primary computer. Workflow is a shining example of the power of automation combined with user creativity and its underlying mission has always been...

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

Following its release on Android today, Nintendo has also updated Super Mario Run on iOS. The update adds a host of new features and bug fixes and brings the app to version 2.0. The update comes months after the app’s initial release.

Headlining the update are new playable characters. Nintendo says the update adds different color versions of Yoshi. If you play with a certain color of Yoshi during Toad Rally, you can unlock more toads of that color.

Additionally, the update makes more of the game available for free. Nintendo says that by completing one of Bowser’s challenges, you can unlock the previously locked courses 1-4 and battle with Bowser. Furthermore, Nintendo says that if you “clear course 1-4,” you’ll get new courses to play in Toad Rally.

If you love the game, there’s just more to love. Me, I find the interface a bit of a mess. Lots to love, lots of frustrating design to go along with it.

I could go for this: Apple has filed for a patent (number 2017003048) dubbed “electronic accessory device” that would turn an iPhone or iPad into a full-fledged laptop. It involves systems and methods for “providing internal components for portable computing devices having a thin profile.”

More particularly, the present application describes an electronic accessory device available “to extend and expand usefulness of a portable computing device.” The accessory device — which has a niche into which an iOS device can be inserted — can have a form factor corresponding to a laptop, sporting data output resources such as a visual display and input resources. 

It can also include memory resources, which — if the invention ever materialized — would help overcome the storage options in iPhones and iPads. The accessory device would also offer additional functionality, such as a large display, enhanced audio capabilities, and input means such as a mouse, track pad and keyboard...

Apple will reportedly start assembling iPhones in India over next two months. The tech giant is said to be in talks with the Indian government for import-tax exemptions on components.

Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The company has opened its retail stores in a number of countries around the world, but not in India. The country has restrictive real estate investment laws for foreign companies.

What’s more, India’s Finance and Commerce Ministries rejected Apple’s request to sell used iPhones in the country. Also, India wants a commitment from the Cupertino, California-base company to bring manufacturing facilities to the country before the government will approve the company’s request to open its own retail stores.

A spokesman for Apple confirmed on Wednesday the company’s acquisition of DeskConnect, the developer of the app, and the Workflow app, but did not provide further details.

Workflow, developed for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, allows users to drag and drop combinations of actions to create workflows that interact with the apps and content on the device. It won an Apple design award in 2015 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

Some of the examples of tasks for which Workflow can be used are making animated GIFs, adding a home screen icon to call a loved one and tweeting a song the user has been listening to, according to a description of the app.

Albeit you’ll be able to snag the newly-announced 9.7-inch iPad on Friday, Apple has stated that customers who want to buy it in Apple Store and other retail locations will need to wait until “next week,” according to Apple.

Apple has provided a bit more information on the new iPad shopping situation. Orders placed on Friday, the first day of availability, will arrive the following week at some point, with no specific day given.

Other retailers, such as Target and Best Buy, have stated that they are expecting stock of the new 9.7-inch tablet around the beginning of April with orders starting on Friday, the same as the Apple online store.

Apple’s new iPad announced on Tuesday returns to the iPad Air’s thickness and includes a non-laminated Retina Display and larger battery than the iPad Air 2. An A9 processor drives the new unit, with 32GB of device storage — all available for $329 to start.

How to set permissions for items in macOS Sierra

You can set permissions for items on macOS Sierra if you wish. Permission settings determine who can view and alter files on the computer. You change permission settings at the bottom of the Info window for a file, folder, or disk in the Finder. 

(The Finder is the home base for your Mac. You use it to organize and access almost everything on your Mac, including documents, images, movies, and any other files you have.)

Okay, back to permissions. For example, you can change permission settings for a folder so that other users who log in to your Mac, or connect to it for file sharing, can view but not change files in a folder. To assign permissions to users and groups:

  • Select a disk, folder, or file, then choose File > Get Info.

More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world’s richest company—and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer.

On stage at the IEEE TechIgnite conference in Burlingame, California, on Wednesday, he gave a glimpse into how a tech legend thinks.

On open source

In the early 1970s, Wozniak read about phone phreaking, in which “phreakers” made free phone calls by using electronics to mimic the tones used for dialing each number. To learn how to do it, he went to the only place he knew that had books and magazines about computers: The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He went on a Sunday and walked right in. “The smartest people in the world don’t lock doors,” Wozniak said.

Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free plug-in a useful...

By Aaron Lee

Digital Anarchy's $149 Flicker Free plug-in for Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Apple's Final Cut Pro X gives video editors and visual effects artists a useful tool that fixes a wide range of footage affected with flicker or strobing. 

It analyzes on-the-fly, renders quickly, and easily produces flicker free footage. There are presets for different types of flicker, allowing it to fit into a variety of workflows.

Flicker is a problem that affects several types of video footage. Time lapse suffers from variation in exposures. Archival footage flickers because of old cameras or lights. Slow motion or high speed video can be affected by the flickering of electric lights. LED lights, TVs, and computer monitors cause flickering when out of sync with the camera.

Flicker Free deflickers all these types of footage and more. It analyzes the...

Hackers Claim Access To 300 Million iCloud Accounts...

A hacker or group of hackers calling themselves the "Turkish Crime Family" claim they have access to at least 300 million iCloud accounts, and will delete the alleged cache of data if Apple pays a ransom by early next month. Motherboard is reporting that the hackers are demanding "$75,000 in Bitcoin or Ethereum, another increasingly popular crypto-currency, or $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards in exchange for deleting the alleged cache of data." From the report: The hackers provided screenshots of alleged emails between the group and members of Apple's security team. One also gave Motherboard access to an email account allegedly used to communicate with Apple. "Are you willing to share a sample of the data set?" an unnamed member of Apple's security team wrote to the hackers a week ago, according to one of the emails stored in the account.

Apple’s Q1 product updates were announced this week without an official press event like what usually accompanies its bigger products refreshes. A new Product RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, a new 5th generation iPad, an updated iPhone SE, and new and updated Apple Watch bands and iPhone cases were all introduced.

There is still a chance Apple could hold a spring event for other new product updates with April rumored for a possible iPad Pro update unveiling. But are you planning on getting any of this week’s newly announced products?

Yay, new hardware! Apple skipped the event this time around, and unveiled a new iPad to replace the iPad Air 2, a red iPhone 7, more storage for the iPad mini 4 and iPhone SE, new Apple Watch bands, and a new iOS app that combines elements of Vine and Snapchat. Whew!

We'll have a review of the iPad when it ships, but don't worry that this is all there is. Apple still has the iPad Pro to refresh, and of course Tim Cook promised us pro Macs this year. The vigil continues...

MTS: The "laptop bag" that can save your...

It's a dangerous world out there. You can be enjoying yourself in a hotel, visiting a tourist site somewhere, maybe just picking up your bags at an airport or attending a meeting in an office building. The next thing you know, bullets are flying or bombs are going off. The MTS Multi-Threat Shield from Force Training Institute ($899, law enforcement discounts available) is an instantly deployed bulletproof shield that can also carry a laptop or tablet.

Did that get your attention? At $899, this isn't the bag for everyone. It weighs 8 lbs., so it's not exactly the lightest "computer bag" ever produced. But the lifesaving properties of the MTS -- the ability to "defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun and pistol caliber sub-machine gun threats" and even protect against high-powered rifles with an optional Level III insert plate -- can make it worth the price to anyone who needs ultimate protection.

MTS is...

Apple and Amazon take fight from smart home to hotel...

Amazon’s Alexa has successfully challenged Apple on your home turf—literally. The Echo and other various Alexa-equipped devices are rapidly becoming the go-to when you need assistance at home, though Apple’s HomeKit has the edge when it comes to automation and security standards. But the real battle comes down to Alexa vs. Siri—which voice-activated assistant is more useful? Now hotel chains are trying to decide for themselves.

The high-end Wynn Las Vegas resort chose Alexa last December, adding Amazon Echo devices in its suites. Now Marriott International is trying to decide between Amazon and Apple, according to a Bloomberg report. The JW Marriott in San Antonio, Texas has been testing Amazon Alexa-integrated devices since October as an operator of sorts—the conduit to room service and housekeeping. Alexa can also control the lighting in a...

Need to book an appointment? Soon you won’t even need to leave the Instagram app to do that.

In the next couple of months, Instagram is planning to give its users the ability to book appointments in-app, according to Bloomberg. Instagram hopes this new feature will give users more of an incentive to interact with business profiles. It will also help businesses better measure the impact of running an Instagram account, and potentially drive them to advertise more on the platform.

“When someone books an appointment, that’s not a ‘like’ or a ‘follow,’ that’s actual action,” Instagram’s head of business James Quarles told Bloomberg.

Hackers threaten to wipe millions of Apple devices,...

A group of hackers is threatening to wipe data from millions of Apple devices in two weeks if the company doesn’t pay them $150,000.

The group, which calls itself Turkish Crime Family, claims to have login credentials for more than 627 million icloud.com, me.com and mac.com email addresses. These are email domains that Apple has allowed for users creating iCloud accounts over the years.

Even though the Turkish Crime Family hasn't been in the media spotlight before, its members claim that they've been involved in selling stolen online databases in private circles for the past few years.

The group said via email that it has had a database of about 519 million iCloud credentials for some time, but did not attempt to sell it until now. The interest for such accounts on the black market has been low due to security measures Apple has put in place in recent years, it said.

In the original story, Pinocchio killed Jiminy...

Today I Found Out:

You probably already knew that Disney has a habit of taking dark, twisted children’s fairy tales and turning them into sickeningly sweet happily-ever-afters.

The 1940 version of Pinocchio is no exception. The movie is based on a story that appeared as a serial in a newspaper called The Adventures of Pinocchio, written in 1881 and 1882 by Carlo Collodi. Jiminy Cricket appears as the Talking Cricket in the book, and does not play as prominent of a role.

The Disneyfication of many of our favourite childhood stories might be a good thing. If you read many of the original stories of so much of what Disney has shown us, you’ll find they are not only significantly different but, in many cases, really

Is Setapp the future of Mac apps?

As more apps move to a subscription model, Setapp offers a “Netflix for Mac apps” experience that could be the way forward. One subscription with one monthly fee to get access to every app you need and also discover new ones, all curated so you only get the best options for the task at hand. Currently offering 69 apps (normally worth $2,227.29), you can use all of them through Setapp, free for the first month and $9.99/month after.

Even if you use just a few of the included apps often and the others when the need arises, the service makes a whole lot of sense versus subscribing to each individually or buying outright for what might be a one-time use. And you’ll never have to worry about updates as you get the latest and new apps as they’re added. There are also no ads or in-app purchases in Setapp. Here’s how it works:
