Carly Fiorina Calls Apple's Tim Cook a '...

HughPickens.com (3830033) writes "David Knowles reports at Bloomberg that former Hewlett-Packard CEO and potential 2016 presidential candidate Carly Fiorina called out Apple CEO Tim Cook as a hypocrite for criticizing Indiana and Arkansas over their Religious Freedom Restoration Acts while at the same time doing business in countries where gay rights are non-existent. "When Tim Cook is upset about all the places that he does business because of the way they treat gays and women, he needs to withdraw from 90% of the markets that he's in, including China and Saudi Arabia," Fiorina said. "But I don't hear him being upset about that."

In similar criticism of Hillary Clinton on the Fox News program Hannity, Fiorina argued that Clinton's advocacy on behalf of women was tarnished by donations made to the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments where women's rights are not on par with those in America. ""I must say as a woman, I find it offensive that Hillary Clinton travels...

Apple to release super-high resolution 'iMac 8K...

In a rather unusual reveal, a supposed "iMac 8K" has been outed in a press release that was published by Apple display supplier LG, suggesting the all-in-one desktop will get an even higher resolution screen this year.

LG publicly claims Apple will release ‘iMac 8K’ with...

Last week, Apple’s biggest display partner LG Display published an explainer on 8K (7,680 by 4,320 resolution) screens, claiming that the specification is the future of display technology. LG has already demonstrated 8K monitors at CES in Las Vegas, and notes that the panel boasts 16 times the number of pixels as a standard Full HD screen. Strangely, however, LG’s document explicitly says that Apple is working on an 8K version of the iMac (emphasis ours):

It has become clear that Japan is planning to launch an 8K SHV test broadcast and then promptly restructure the UHD service. Apple has also announced that they will release the ‘iMac 8K’ with a super-high resolution display later this year. Korea is also preparing to offer an 8K service demonstration at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. LG...

Freemium Field Test: Fast & Furious: Legacy...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

If you’re one of the millions of people that flocked to see Furious 7 this weekend, you might be eager to relive some of the big-screen thrills on your iPhone or iPad—and Fast & Furious: Legacy is ready and waiting for you. Here’s the bad news: It’s a free-to-play game that features multiple currency systems, timers that force you to wait for arbitrary reasons, and fair bit of grinding needed to unlock faster cars and later content.

The best cross-platform writing apps for Mac and iOS

iOS devices have completely changed the way we write. Not only has iOS given us the flexibility to quickly jot down our thoughts wherever and whenever they strike, it's fundamentally flipped our expectations of the humble text editor. In an effort to maximize every pixel of screen real estate, developers rethought what was necessary for productivity and efficiency on our mobile devices, from the size of the canvas to the way we interact with buttons, bars and ribbons. 

The result left us with minimal, distraction-free environments where the only things that matter are our words. And as formatting bars and font menus became obsolete on our iPhones and iPads, a funny thing happened: They became less important on our Macs, too. From iAWriter to Pages and even Microsoft Word, the streamlining of the word processor has created a world of smart, lightweight interfaces built to adapt to whatever device we happen to be using.

This week's sponsor: Macphun Software's...

Our sponsor this week is Macphun, and we’re thrilled to be a launch partner for a powerful new Mac app to bring noise-free clarity to your photos — Noiseless.

Noiseless uses advanced imaging technology to eliminate the pixelation and graininess that’s common to digital images shot in situations with poor lighting. Noise occurs when digital cameras automatically increase their ISO sensitivity to correct for low-light conditions, adding grain and speckles to the images. Noiseless automatically compensates for those conditions, and advanced users can make adjustments to preserve details of images or selectively reduce noise.

Does it work? Absolutely! I have been using Noiseless over the past week, and it’s incredibly easy to use. In most situations, all you need to do is drag and drop an image onto Noiseless. After a...

Reach for the Sky, Pando

Mark Ames took the aforelinked SF Chronicle report on Apple’s policy of not hiring convicted felons (or those facing pending felony charges) to work on the construction of its new campus and Pando’d the hell out of it, starting with the headline: “As Tim Cook Criticizes Indiana, Apple Imposes Labor Discrimination in Its Own Backyard”. I’m not saying Apple’s no-felons policy is sound — I don’t know — but I feel safe saying that not hiring felons for construction jobs is not even in the same ballpark as a statewide law allowing for discrimination against people based on their sexuality.

Ames:

Roughly 30 percent of Americans have a criminal record — arrest...

Apple Maps adds hotel reviews & images from...

Over the past few days, it appears that Apple Maps has gained support for in-app reviews and images from two new sources. Since its launch, Apple Maps has only supported reviews of businesses from Yelp, but now it appears that the app is integrating user content from TripAdvisor and Booking.com for hotels, as seen below.

At this point there does not seem to be any criteria for when you will see content from Yelp, Booking.com, or TripAdvisor. Although, Booking.com seems to be far more prevalent internationally than the other two sources. No matter which of the three sources appears, however, you’ll see both images and reviews from only one source, with no option to view data from the other two within the app.

As of this post, Apple has not acknowledged the addition of Booking.com and TripAdvisor data to its Maps...

Tiny loves to watch the fish swim and splash on the Cat Fishing app on her iPad. She also loves to stand between me and the screen of my desktop mac for tickles and scratches. ”

They play out like tutorial videos and are labeled "Guided Tour," followed by what specifically the video is showcasing. Currently, there are four Guided Tour videos available, one of which is a general introduction to Apple Watch labeled "Guided Tour: Welcome." It's the longest video of the bunch at 4 minutes and 45 seconds.

Anyone who is "on the bubble" about whether or not to get an Apple Watch will be able to spend up to 15 minutes with one later on the 10th at Apple Stores in the launch countries. As mentioned earlier this week on the AWT News Update, those interested in purchasing the luxury Apple Watch Edition will get special treatment. 

We anticipate that the online Apple Store will shut down at about 9 PM PT on April 9th so that the site can be prepared for the launch and onslaught of orders.

With pre-orders and demos of the highly-anticipated Apple Watch only one week away (FINALLY!), several sources have acquired information on the cost of AppleCare+ for the newest member of the Apple family. AppleCare+ is going to be a good idea for this wrist-borne wonder, as accidental damage from swinging your arm into something -- a table, a car door, you name it -- is a very real possibility.

MacRumors published what are claimed to be internal Apple documents about AppleCare+ pricing for the devices, which unsurprisingly appear to vary based on what model of Apple Watch you're buying. The entry-level aluminum Apple Watch Sport will get coverage at the relatively bargain price of $59, the stainless steel Apple Watch will be protected for $79, and the gold Apple Watch Edition? Well, if you have to ask...

At launch on April 24th, the Apple Watch will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan.

60-Second Tips: Changing the default name of an iOS...

When my husband and I purchase a new iPhone or iPad, the older models are handed down to our children who are old enough to have a smartphone or tablet device. As a result, our family now has a total of 6 iOS devices that we sync to iTunes and connect via Apple's Family Sharing and iCloud accounts.

To ensure we can identify each phone in our growing collection, we change the name of each device from the default "iPhone" or "iPad" to a new name that is unique to each device.  In today's 60-second tips, I demonstrate how to change the default name of an iOS device so you can easily recognize it in iTunes, Find My iPhone and other services.

Report: Apple Watch Edition extended care plan will...

Anyone planning to spend upwards of $10,000 on an Apple Watch Edition should be prepared to spend quite a bit more for extended service and warranty coverage.

Apple will charge $999 for an AppleCare+ plan that extends the Edition’s exclusive support perks from two years to three years, 9to5Mac reports.

Edition buyers who forgo AppleCare+ will still get a special setup hotline and two years of round-the-clock phone support. They’ll also be covered for two accidental damage incidents in those first two years, minus any service fees and taxes. The $999 AppleCare+ plan extends those benefits for a third year.

The iPad turns five: A look back at all nine of...

The first iPad came out five years ago today. Lately, most of what you hear about the tablet is that sales are in a slump, and it’s true: year-over-year sales have been down for four straight quarters, and, in a couple of weeks, we’ll find out whether it will be five straight.

But even a slumping iPad is still a formidable sales juggernaut—Apple sold a total of 63.4 million iPads in those four quarters, generating $27.8 billion in revenue. It’s not a patch on the iPhone, which can sell more units than that in a single quarter, but the tablet lineup is still generating a lot of money for Apple.

Today we’re taking a quick walk down memory lane, revisiting our reviews of each iPad and remembering what each model is best remembered for.

Pastimes: Get out to the ballgame with Major League...

Pastime (noun): an activity that someone does regularly for enjoyment rather than work; a hobby; his favorite pastimes were shooting and golf. 

This Sunday, the Major League Baseball season will begin as the St. Louis Cardinals visit the Chicago Cubs at a newly renovated Wrigley Field. Major League Baseball is doing a great job of embracing mobile technology, and as such, Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) has created some groundbreaking apps over the years. Whether you follow every game of your favorite team all season, or just occasionally take yourself out to the ballgame, MLBAM's apps are worth considering. Let's take a look:

MLB.com At Bat (free, with a variety of in-app purchases)

This is MLB's marquee app, one that is in its eighth season. A universal app, MLB.com At Bat is one-stop shopping for baseball stats, box scores,...

Samsung will apparently be producing the A9 processor for Apple.

A report released on Thursday confirmed that Apple is contracting Samsung to manufacture A-series processors expected for inclusion in next-generation iPhone handsets.

Citing sources close to the story, Samsung is slated to fabricate Apple’s forthcoming system on chip design, potentially dubbed “A9,” bound for this year’s iOS device lineup. If true, Samsung would reclaim a position currently filled by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, the world’s largest chipmaker.

Anker specializes in accessories that deliver uncommon value. Like gigantic batteries that cost as little as small ones. Six-port USB chargers that are less expensive than two Apple one-port chargers. And iPhone battery cases that outperform rivals sold for twice the price. So it’s only natural that the company would leverage its power expertise to go beyond resuscitating little Apple devices and assist with real emergencies. With roughly the same footprint as its Astro E7 — a battery capable of fully recharging any iPad Air twice — the same-priced ...

Tests find Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, HTC One M9 just...

Remember all the grief Apple and iPhone 6 owners went through last fall when they found that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be bent, thereby resulting in “Bendgate”?

The same is apparently true for Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone and the HTC One M9.

A recent video issued by third-party warranty firm SquareTrade showed the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge bending under no less than 110 pounds of pressure and the One M9 to bend at 120 lbs of pressure.

Although the Galaxy S6 Edge’s pressure limits are comparable to the iPhone 6 Plus’ testing, the Galaxy’s screen ended up cracking under the pressure instead of slightly bending similar to Apple’s...

More affordable AppleCare+ coverage will also be offered for...

It’s always a difficult task when comparing iOS and Android devices, but this year it may be more important than ever. Samsung has finally stepped up its game with the Galaxy S6, and now we have something that is truly comparable to Apple’s iPhone lineup. Today we’re getting into the ultimate comparison between Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Apple’s iPhone 6…

Apple iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 specifications

In this comparison we’ll be looking at hardware, design, software, camera performance and specialty features that each device offers. Before we get into that, let’s talk about specifications.

Opinion: How soon is too soon for an Apple Watch 2?

Apple’s upcoming retail overhaul for displaying the Watch

A lot of my techie friends are saying that the entry priced-Apple Watch Sport will be their pick next month, and not because of the exterior look. The theory is that Sport is the cheapest way to experience Apple’s new product category in 2015, and since the second-gen Apple Watch will inevitably be upgraded, why pay a premium this year for nicer materials such as stainless steel and sapphire glass?

Despite the Apple Watch’s desire to marry jewelry with technology, it hasn’t lost the baggage gadgets carry, namely the reality that they’ll be outdated and replaced in a relatively short period of time. If the Apple Watch evolves anything like the original iPad did when it became the iPad 2, the differences could be dramatic.

Personally, when...

This is pretty cool. Drexel University has installed an iPad rental vending machine that can be accessed by university students and neighboring residents.

The rental period lasts four hours, and all data entered by the customer is expunged when the device is returned.

The Trace starts out like all good murder mysteries do: You play Baltimore police detective Sam Pearce, investigating an apparent suicide that turns out to be a murder. You’re aided by your lab partner, Alex, who checks in occasionally via phone, and a forensic flashlight that you can use to examine objects for clues, such as blood, fibers, and fingerprints. As you discover clues, you start to piece together a larger web of questions, which ends up leading you to the answer of whodunit?
