Take Control of Slack Basics: Chapter 11, Be...

If you’re not careful, Slack can become yet another overwhelming communications channel that just adds to your stress. But with some clever configuration of notification options and thought about how your Slack team should operate, you can turn down the volume. Even better, you can centralize other communications streams in Slack, turning it into a dashboard from which you can track everything that’s happening in your organization’s world.

Wrapping Up “Take Control of Slack Basics”

We have two chapters for you this week, the latter of which is available for everyone to read. In Chapter 11, accessible only by TidBITS members, Glenn Fleishman explains how to tame Slack so it doesn’t make you less productive and how to use Slack as a central hub for all your online communications. Chapter 12, available for everyone, is actually the first chapter of Glenn’s companion book, “Take Control of Slack Admin” — it walks you through setting up your own Slack team.

Apple releases iTunes 12.4 update

Apple on Monday released iTunes 12.4, adding a new, simpler design element to its user interface along with standard bug fixes.

The new version also introduces a sidebar for easier navigation as well as a revamped media picker and may also include safeguards to protect users from an issue that could cause music stored in iTunes to be deleted. The deletion problem affected a small number of users and while Apple was not able to recreate the bug, the company promised “additional safeguards.”

This fix has yet to be officially confirmed by Apple and was not specifically mentioned in the release notes.

iTunes 12.4 can be downloaded through the App Store and its “Updates” tab. The program requires Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later to install and run.

Enlarge / iTunes 12.4. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple today released OS X 10.11.5, the fifth major update to OS X El Capitan since it was released last September. The company also released iTunes 12.4, a minor update that tweaks the user interface in an effort to simplify it.

The El Capitan update doesn't change much. There are quite a few security fixes and a few tweaks related to enterprise usage, but little in the way of user-visible changes. iTunes 12.4 is more noticeable change. It doesn't fix the core problem with iTunes—that having one program to handle local music, streamed music from Apple Music, TV and movie purchases, podcasts, and iOS device...

How I got those iTunes deletion bug blues...

I have to admit that I don't listen to a lot of music anymore. I prefer to write in silence most of the time, accompanied by the purring of a cat in my lap. When the recent reports of entire music libraries being deleted from Macs were first making the rounds, I really didn't think too much about it... until I wrote a post for another website and found out while doing research that most of my iTunes library was gone.

Now a bit of explanation. I do not use Apple Music and most recent articles have pointed out that Apple Music isn't the culprit -- it appears to be iTunes 12.3.3. My iTunes library was built up over a few years in the early to mid 2000s by ripping a large collection of CDs, all of which I still have. When iTunes Match became available in November of 2011, it seemed like a good idea -- I'd have the best possible recordings of those tunes that I already "owned" on my own Mac, for a relatively modest annual fee. 

For the past few years, whenever I'd pop out...

Apple releases OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update

If you were hankering for the release of OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan, it’s here.

On Monday, Apple released OS X 10.11.5, along with updates for its iOS, watchOS, tvOS and iTunes operating systems.

The update includes the following fixes and changes:

• Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set allowSpotlightInternetResults to False would cause Spotlight to use large amounts of CPU time.

• Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn to True would have no effect.

• Fixes an issue where only a single NetBoot image would appear in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences, even if multiple NetBoot images were configured on the server.

Apple To Launch Startup Accelerator, Three Apple...

Apple plans to set up three of its own retail stores -- the iconic Apple Store -- in India, reports FactorDaily. The stores will be setup in Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai in the next 18 months. The report adds that Apple also plans to unveil a startup accelerator in the country which would incubate ideas largely around apps built for iOS. The publication claims that these announcements will be made public later this week when Apple CEO Tim Cook visits India. With the growth of iPhone sales starting to decline, and India being one of the handful places to show an increasingly growing interest in its phone, Apple has shifted its focus in the recent months to actively target Indian market.

Tim Cook visiting India this week

Cook’s visit, following a trip to China, comes at a crucial time as Apple looks for new growth markets after posting its first ever decline in iPhone sales, and as India has denied it permission to sell refurbished phones – a move seen as key to appealing to price-sensitive local consumers.

This makes perfect sense considering how much Tim has talked about India lately.

Icahn said he still views Apple as a "great company," but concerns over the Chinese economy and government led him to sell off his shares. Last week David Tepper's Appaloosa Management also sold its stake in Apple, shedding more than 1.26 million shares.

Siri, Inc. had announced that their software would be available for BlackBerry and for phones running Android, but all development efforts for non-Apple platforms were cancelled after the acquisition by Apple.

Hands-on: Sony’s a6300 mirrorless camera makes a...

The iPhone can shoot 4K video, and now even the iPad can shoot 4K video. Yet, there are times when you need the flexibility and power provided by a standalone camera.

Standalone cameras have inherent advantages over smartphone cameras, despite the major strides made by iPhone photography over the last few years. Even with amazing third-party apps like FiLMiC Pro, which lets you adjust things like ISO and shutter speed, you’re still stuck with a constant aperture and fixed lens.

While smartphones have replaced point and shoot cameras for a vast amount of people, standalone cameras, especially ones with interchangeable lenses like the recently-released 24MP Sony a6300, still have their place.

In a statement to iMore, Apple confirmed receiving reports from users, stating that “in an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission.” According to the statement, Apple is looking into why this is happening, though its engineers haven’t yet encountered the issue themselves.

Earlier this month, an Apple Music user James Pinkstone claimed that the online music streaming service deleted 122GB of music from his library for no apparent reason. Several Slashdot readers noted they had also faced a similar issue or knew someone who had. The iPhone maker has now acknowledged a bug in iTunes that is apparently causing the glitch, however, it adds that it doesn't really know why "some" users are facing this issue. The Verge reports: The company confirmed that "in an extremely small number of cases, users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission." However, Apple was unable to reproduce the bug, indicating it doesn't really know what's going on here. The company adds: We're taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause.

Apple has officially acknowledged community reports of inadvertently deleted music, with users left with missing tracks in their libraries that may never be recovered, in a statement to iMore. The company says that it is pushing an iTunes update next week with ‘safeguards’ to pre-emptively target the issue but it cannot reproduce the bug as of yet in internal testing. This means the exact cause of the bug is still unknown and it is not guaranteed that the forthcoming iTunes software patch will fix the problem.

Mac Users Reporting Widespread System Freezes With...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mac Rumors: A large number of MacBook Pro owners running OS X El Capitan are reporting widespread system freezes since installing the 10.11.4 update to Apple's Mac OS. The problem appears to be concentrated on 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros (Early 2015) running 10.11.4. Users report that their system becomes totally unresponsive at seemingly random times, with no way to regain access to their Mac other than to force a hard reboot. The issue was initially reported by MacRumors forum member Antonnn on March 25, four days after Apple released what is the third update to the Mac OS. In Antonnn's case, the freezes have been occurring "about once a week," first when browsing in Safari, but then also during the use of other Mac apps, including Adobe Photoshop and several third-party browsers. The freeze seems to affect not only the screen and mouse cursor but also the Mac's Force Touch trackpad, which completely loses feedback. Apple Support is...

External Link: The Right to Bear… Encryption?

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is a favorite of gun owners, but could it also provide a constitutional basis for a right to encryption? That’s not as kooky as it sounds. As Motherboard’s Susan McGregor explains, the United States government has long considered encryption to be “munitions,” as was the case for Philip Zimmermann, developer of the PGP cryptographic software, when he was detained at Dulles International Airport in 1994. But if the Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right to own firearms, it might also support our right to use encryption. However, this line of reasoning opens up a family-size can of worms. For instance, could convicted felons be barred from using encryption? Furthermore, many privacy advocates may not be thrilled to find themselves on the same side of the table as the gun lobby.
