The Logic Pros: How to use MIDI hardware...

In this week’s episode of The Logic Pros, we are taking a look at how Logic handles external MIDI-based instruments in the real world. It really doesn’t get any easier than loading up your favorite soft-synth, but that doesn’t mean they are as fun or inspiring as the real thing. LPX has a handy feature that makes it so many of the most popular and sought-after external synths/MIDI-instruments can integrate just as smoothly:

Ok, so we have an external synthesizer or instrument, but how do we get it to work with our Logic studio without the need for...

Apple Patents Bank Account Balance Snooping Tech

An anonymous reader writes: Apple's latest patent filings shows that the company is looking into displaying advertising based on your available bank balance. If Apple moves forward with this type of technology it would be a complete 360 on its previous direction to not monetize everything they know about customers. Tim Cook has even said multiple times that companies are targeting consumers on multiple fronts and that he's completely against using customer information in this manner and its not the kind of company he wants Apple to be.

Silicon Valley Still Wrestling With Diversity Issues

An anonymous reader writes: As major tech companies come under increased scrutiny over the diversity of their workforces, many of them are focusing solely on the "pipeline" of workers educated in a computer-related field. They're pouring resources into getting kids to code, setting up internships, and even establishing mentoring programs for underrepresented groups. But experts say they're still failing to root out their own internal biases when making hiring decisions. "That bias shows up in recruiting, with companies drawing from the same top universities, where black and Hispanic graduates are still lagging behind other groups. ... The problem is particularly acute at start-ups, where black founders are just 1 percent of venture-invested firms, according to a 2011 survey by CB Insights." The tech companies are under mounting pressure to solve this problem, and the solutions they're pursuing won't show results quickly.

A new report out from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo includes some interesting details about Apple’s planned fall product releases. Firstly, Kuo expects iPhone shipments to fall in the current quarter as anticipation builds for the new iPhone dubbed the ‘iPhone 6s’, although apparently ‘Force Touch yields are low’ which may constrict availability at the beginning. For Apple Watch, following a report earlier in the year to expect new materials for Apple Watch casings, Kuo claims Apple will launch new Apple Watch Sport color options to match the new iPhone.

This includes anodizing aluminum in either yellow gold or rose gold to match the gold options on the iPhone 6s and create a faux-Edition Sport model. Third-party coating services already exist for the Apple Watch (...

Caturday: Casey, feline commander of the iMac!

Casey, photo by Maryann Trozzo

It's all in the timing. Sometimes we Mac-loving cat toys catch our furry buddies in the act of doing something that looks so human... In this case, Casey looks like he's checking out settings to make sure they're correct, but he's actually more interested in a fly that's landed on top of the iMac. Here's the scoop from Casey's loving human, Maryann Trozzo:

“This is Casey who was adopted from the LASPCA in Long Beach, Ca in November of 2013. He is now a little over 2 years old. He is the most charming of kitties, he comes when we call him and loves to play and chase treats. About a year ago I was working on a family members old iMac. A fly that got into the house landed on the top of the monitor and the resulting pictured happened. He look like he is studying what is on the screen, but you can barely see the tiny fly sitting on top. I hope you can download these pictures from Facebook.

Review: The Briefcase from Pad and Quill is a...

 

Being a writer and video creator, my bags are easily some of the most important possessions I have. The reason is obvious: they protect my essential tech and gear. I’m always super picky about which bags or backpacks I choose for this hefty task, and most of them come at a steep price. They hardly every look what you may call “good” though. I’m usually all about function over form when it comes to my bag decision. Choosing durability and features like pocket space usually means you’ll need to compromise on design.

With that said, I don’t consider myself a “briefcase” kind of guy. The style has just never been my thing because briefcases tend to be rather conservative on space and stiff in shape. So what’s with all of this talk over bags and briefcases? It just so happens that I’ve found a briefcase that’s actually kind of a bag, and it delivers...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Controller-based games don’t always translate well to touch devices, and Geometry Wars seems like it ought to be a prime example of that. While inspired by classic arcade games (especially Robotron: 2084), the series is built around the dual analog sticks of console gamepads, letting you easily steer your ship with one stick and fire with the other as you zip around the minimal, neon-tinged terrain. Precision is absolutely necessary, given the small stages and focus on amassing high scores.

iPod Touch performance preview: 500% better CPU, 900...


ars.AD.queue.push(["xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:[], collapse: true}]);

Smartphones and tablets have stopped changing all that much from year to year, which makes it easy to take for granted just how far they've come in such a relatively short time. One year of updates doesn't do much to impress anymore, but take three or four years of updates all at once and you'll have something to be impressed by.

Such is the case with the sixth-generation iPod Touch, which brings three years' and four generations' worth of processor improvements all at the same time. Jumping from an Apple A5 to an A8 results in an almost comically large performance improvement, though as we'll see, you're not quite getting iPhone 6 performance in an iPod-sized body.

The CPU

The iPod's A8 is running at around 1.1GHz, roughly 27 percent slower than the 1.4GHz A8 in the iPhone 6. When those phones were announced, Apple said the A8 was about 25 percent faster...

The camera behind the new Pluto photos

.

The Atlantic:

I talked to Lisa Hardaway, an engineer at Ball Aerospace in Colorado who led technical development of the one called “Ralph.” Ralph captures visible and some infrared light. When you see Pluto looking tan- and sepia-toned in the new, high-resolution photos, you’re looking at data captured by Ralph.

​Since it captures visible light, Ralph is in many ways comparable to the camera found in a phone or fancy DSLR. In conventional camera terms, it’s a 75mm lens at f/8.7. But it was far harder to build than a normal camera.

Hilarious that these incredible images we are getting from New Horizons are from a “Ralph”. An “Omar” or a “Brad” I could understand.

In praise of the iPod shuffle

Apple updated what’s left of the iPod line earlier this week. They bumped the processor and improved the camera on the iPod touch, and added some new colors. And they also added new colors to the iPod nano and iPod shuffle.

There’s something satisfying about listening to music or spoken word on a device that is so self-effacing.

You may wonder why Apple is still selling the iPod shuffle. After all, when you can have an iPhone that runs apps, takes photos, records and plays HD video, and uses GPS to give you directions—or an iPod touch with most of those features—why keep selling a tiny little device that does nothing more than play audio?

Once again, the coolest of cats over at iFixit have come through with teardown goodness, dissecting a brand new 2015/sixth-generation iPod touch to see what they could find.

The exterior of the device looks largely the same as the previous generation, but it’s the new guts of the device that make the difference.

During the teardown, the iFixit guys found the following:

- An A8 processor that had been underclocked compared to the iPhone version.

- 1 GB LPDDR3 RAM.

- A battery rated at 1043 mah.

- No external screws, ample use of adhesive inside the iPod touch.

- A smaller f/24 aperture.

Popular iOS and Android apps from companies like Walmart, ESPN, Slack and SoundCloud have been found vulnerable to password cracking, according to a recent report from AppBugs. The security firm found that dozens of the most popular apps are lacking, in that they allow you to make any number of attempts to login without restriction. These clearly opens up a gap for attackers who have the means to guess those passwords and gain access to your accounts.

The most secure apps will force you to reset your password if you don’t enter it correctly, or they’ll lock you out after you’ve made a certain number of attempts.

iFixit: New iPod Touch battery is kind-of-sort-of...

iFixit has just completed the sixth-generation iPod Touch's new gadget introduction cycle by tearing it apart to see what's inside.

By and large, the new iPod is pretty similar to the old one. Apple has changed essentially nothing about the outside of the device, so the way the components all fit together is mostly the same. The one notable change is related to the way the battery is secured in the case: "peel-out adhesive tabs" replace the more persistent adhesive from the fifth-generation model. You still need to heat up the adhesive securing the screen to the back of the case to get inside the Touch in the first place, but this...

Apple, Samsung in talks to help create standardized...

When Apple and Samsung aren’t actively suing each other, they can get some killer stuff done.

This may be what they’re trying to do, as the firms are reportedly in “advanced talks” with telecom operators from all over the world to launch new electronic SIM cards. These e-SIM cards would be standardized among both smartphone makers and come embedded in their devices, creating a “common architecture.” Unlike physical SIM cards, e-SIM cards offer more flexibility to users. Instead of being locked into a cellular plan, you will be able to sign up to a new plan or switch plans instantly.

The mobile carriers that are reportedly a part of the e-SIM initiative include AT&T,...

PSA: Apple Watch’s sapphire display cracks just like...

Yep, that’s a cracked Apple Watch display. Nope, it’s not actually an Edition, just plated, but the $549 and up steel model uses the same sapphire display as Apple’s $10,000 and up watch. And yes, the Apple Watch’s sapphire display reacts to accidental drops against hard surfaces just like iPhones.

In describing the craftsmanship of the Apple Watch, Apple calls sapphire “the second-hardest transparent substance after diamond,” adding that “that’s why we chose it to cover the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition faces,” but it still sells a $79 AppleCare+ warranty to cover accidental damage because sapphire is clearly not invincible.

Here’s what to expect if you accidentally break your Apple Watch display and what I learned about how easily it can happen…...

Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation game for iPhone/...

With the latest installment in the Mission Impossible series set for a theatrical release later this month on July 31st, an official iPhone and iPad game for the movie has just launched on the App Store.
Developed by Glu, the action/adventure game bears the same name as the film, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, and offers a number of free-to-play levels set in locations from the movie. The gameplay, a mix of first- and third-person action scenes that for the most part put you behind a firearm of some sort, seems to take a lot after other popular Glu developed titles such as Contract Killer.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…...

Apple Watch ads focus on daily life, travel

Apple released four new Apple Watch ads today, all of which continue with the common Apple meme of showing how devices are used rather than expounding of features. The first two seen here, Beijing and Berlin, show how useful the Apple Watch can be while traveling (at least if you've purchased a nice expensive data roaming plan for your iPhone...). Closer and Goals are much more focused on family and exercise respectively. Enjoy!

Logitech Logi BLOK designed to protect your iPad Air...

Logitech has a new label — Logi — and logo, and the first products under that new label are some iPad cases. These are protective cases and a shell in the Logi BLOK family, featuring bright colors and a radically new design.

The first product is the Logi BLOK Protective Shell, which will sell for $39.99 and is available for iPad Air 2 and all models of the iPad mini. Available in teal/blue (see image above), red/violet and black, it’s made of a flexible polymer with extreme squared edges — hence the BLOK name. The cases flex, allowing accidental drops from as high as six feet onto concrete with no damage to the iPad.

Next in the lineup is the Logi BLOK Protective Case for iPad Air 2 (image above). It features a similar design and the same colors as the Protective Shell, but also has a cover to protect the iPad’s display...

Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse: an Apple World...

I’ll start this review out with a frank admission: I haven’t used a mouse in years. But if any mouse has made me consider giving up the ol’ Magic Trackpad, it’s the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse (US$99.99). The MX Master’s wildly futuristic design, incredible comfort, and capabilities make it the most impressive pointing device I’ve used in years.

Design

The design of the MX Master doesn’t match the Apple “standard” design meme, but that’s OK. Instead, it features a dark gold and black color scheme with a multi-faceted area where your thumb rests. It looks more like a futuristic spacecraft from the upcoming Star Wars reboot than a computer poinitng device.

For a guy, I have quite small hands so I was a bit concerned that the bulk of the MX Master would make it difficult for me to use. That fear was unfounded. The MX Master fits perfectly in a cupped hand, with a...

Musician Neil Young has declared that he will be removing his music from all streaming services, due to poor audio quality. In a post on Facebook, Young claimed that streaming music sounds worse than FM radio, 8-track tapes, and Compact Cassettes. “Streaming is the worst audio in history,” Young said. In 2014, Young developed a competitor to iTunes, PonoMusic, which offers high-quality audio downloads, meant to be played on the company’s Toblerone-shaped music player, which Ars Technica called, “a tall, refreshing drink of snake oil.”

The federal government is partnering with ISPs such as Google Fiber, CenturyLink, Cox Communications, and Sprint. ConnectHome is being funded by private industry, nonprofit organizations and local leaders; the federal government will not be contributing any more money beyond the $50,000 allocated by the Department of Agriculture to deploy broadband to the Choctaw tribal nation.

Hours for iPhone announces integration with Freshbooks for easy time tracking and billing.

Hours is the time-tracking app that I reviewed back in October. It's very well done, with features like smart notifications, multiple timer support, color-coding to keep things clear, and handy reports that you can export to PDF or CSV. It's really a nice app.

Meanwhile, I've been a Freshbooks customer for years and it's quite nice that I can now send billable hours track with Hours directly to Freshbooks. As an existing Freshbooks customer, I can even export existing clients, projects, and tasks directly into Hours.

This is a nice partnership between two great services. Check it out and get to work.

Facebook tests buy button on Pages to help small...

If it seems like every social network wants you to buy more stuff, well, you’re not completely off-base. Now those efforts are moving beyond ads into actual buy buttons, with Pinterest and Twitter piloting efforts to let you buy items straight from your main feed. Facebook is putting its own spin on the shoppable social network by turning Facebook Pages into their own storefronts.

Facebook has tested buy buttons attached to sponsored posts in your News Feed, but this new initiative lets businesses turn their pages into e-commerce sites, Buzzfeed reported Wednesday. The move gives businesses a way to monetize their Facebook pages without paying for sponsored posts, and because every step of the transaction is hosted within Facebook, buying an item will presumably be easier for shoppers. Facebook is...

Apple may not have done much with its iPod shuffle and nano models outside of changing the color offerings, but it beefed up the iPod touch in a big way this week.

Apple also incorporated an iPhone M8 motion coprocessor for better activity-tracking and a new 64-bit A8 chip to make the unit that much faster. A new 1136 x 640 resolution Retina display rounds things out and makes the device that much more robust.
