Snapchat finally updated with iPhone 6/6 Plus support

While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released nearly three months ago, some high-profile developers have taken incredibly long to update their apps with native resolution for the larger screens. Look no further than Snapchat, which has finally been updated with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support in an update released today.

The latest version of the popular ephemeral messaging app, in which users can share photos, videos and instant messages with others that disappear after a customizable length of time, also received enhancements in other areas, including improved captions, the ability to change the color of, pinch to resize and drag around special text and stacked filters.

Snapchat was bumped to version 8.1.0. The update is...

Review: Vers Audio 1Q Bluetooth speaker

Bluetooth speakers are cropping up all over the place in a variety of sizes and styles. One such offering is Vers' 1Q, a Bluetooth-enabled speaker with a hardwood exterior. Vers took their project to Kickstarter, promising to create an attractive, portable product that takes advantage of wood's inherent acoustic properties. Upon their successful campaign, Vers brought two 1Qs to the market, one in ash and one in walnut. But how does Vers' 1Q stack up to other Bluetooth speakers? Find out in our review....

Apple fighting media requests to air Steve Jobs...

As we noted earlier today, several media outlets have filed a motion that would allow them to air the videotaped deposition of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs that was played for jurors in the ongoing iPod antitrust lawsuit. Now the Verge reports that Apple is fighting back against the motion, with the company’s lawyers accusing the media of wanting to see “a dead man.”

As Apple attorney Jonathan Sherman put it:

The marginal value of seeing him again, in his black turtleneck — this time very sick — is small. What they want is a dead man, and they want to show him to the rest of the world, because it’s a...

Starting December 10, T-Mobile will offer unlimited talk, text and data for two lines in a new $100 per month plan -- or 10 GB of total data with unlimited talk and text for four-line plans at the same price, Electronista has learned. The move comes backed up by a poll of cell phone subscribers which claims, among other things, that 81 percent of those polled said they found promotions offered by providers such as AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint to be confusing. T-Mobile President and CEO, John Legere, described the two new offerings as being "simple and saner" alternatives to the competition, altho...

Real vs Apple lawsuit resumes with new plaintiff

A 10-year-old lawsuit between audio software maker Real and Apple, that was nearly derailed when both plaintiffs were found to have been mistaken about when and how they bought their iPods, is back on track following the discovery of an eligible person -- a 65-year-old ice dancer who bought an iPod nano in 2006. The case, which could have been dismissed if a qualified plaintiff wasn't found quickly, told the court that she had used iPods to help her practice ice-skating maneuvers. The judge, however, still noted that Apple now has "an appealable issue" should it lose the case....

adding client machine into xsan 3.1

Forums: Troubleshooting

Hi All,

I can't seem to add client machines to Xsan server. at the add computer menu, I would click add remote computer, then enter in ip address and click ok. Got past authentication menu, to the choose roles. Not placing a check mark, since I don't want that workstation to be MDC, hit continue and this is the pop up error I'm receiving.

XSAN is on 10.244.128.xxx network, and client is on 10.244.40.xxx. Both on subnet of 255.255.252.0

another strange thing is when I hard set manual IP address on the client machine, it would drop off the network. Only way to bring it online is using DHCP and Xsan is complaining that client needs to be on Static.

Any help would be appreciated!

Apple dashboard says iOS 8 now runs on about two-...

According to Apple's App Store Distribution dashboard for developers, iOS 8 was running on 63 percent of all iOS devices as of December 8, 82 days after its release in September. The operating system's adoption rate still lags behind iOS 6 and iOS 7's, but it's up a solid 16 percent since we took a look at it two months ago and it now runs on a clear majority of active iDevices.

As we wrote previously, iOS 8's adoption is likely being limited by a bunch of factors: the fact that the update requires a substantial amount of free space to install, early evidence that it was a bit buggy and a bit slower on older hardware, and the fact that there's just more old iOS hardware...

Maelstrom 3 Still Works on Yosemite, Still Free

Maelstrom 3. Think Asteroids for the Mac. The old Mac. Mac OS. Pre-OS X. It's free, and lots and lots of Mac users wasted many a person-year playing it, but the thing is that it still works on OS X today. Maelstrom 3.0.6 fires up just fine on OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite in all its 640 x 480 glory, as noted by TMO member paikinho and shown in the accompanying screenshot. Note that it's not signed-if you have your System Preferences > Security & Privacy settings are set to allow apps downloaded from the "Mac App Store" or "Mac App Store and Identified Developers," Yosemite will squawk. You can launch it by changing those preferences (which I am not advising you to do), or by trying to launch it and then giving it individual permission in the Security and Privacy settings.

T-Mobile announces new $100 unlimited 2-line data...

AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon need to watch out. The “uncarrier” has announced yet another couple of reasons they hope will get you to ditch your current cellular provider for T-Mobile. Today, CEO John Legere and his cohorts have come out to announce that T-Mobile is now offering a 2-line family plan that comes with unlimited talk, text, and 4G data, for $100 a month.

Referencing the fact (at least according to T-Mobile) that “75% of people “hate” monitoring their families’ data usage,” the company wants to offer a plan that’s affordable and yet gives customers the freedom not to worry about how quickly they’re eating gigs. The new plan costs a family of 2 $100 per month, but more lines can be added for an additional $40 apiece.

Additionally, the company has  resurrected its $100 per month plan for four lines,...

An Illustrated History of (Mac) OS X

The folks at fournova Software GmbH have published An Illustrated History of Mac OS X. This a wonderful and whimsical collection of images that incapsulates each version of OS X from Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah to OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Each one incorporates a cat (or other element, in the case of Mavericks and Yosemite) to represent the OS, but each one also includes other reference points that represent the major changes in that version of the OS. Looking at them was an excellent reminder of when things happened, like Safari in Panther and Intel in Tiger. The screen grab below is for Snow Leopard. There's a written description accompanying each image to fill in any gaps. For those keeping score at home, fournova makes Tower, a git client for version control in OS X.

The evolution of Apple’s iOS cameras has been fairly linear: Apple improved their image quality, added video recording capabilities, and dropped in a small collection of filters, but otherwise hasn’t radically changed their features.

Just in time for the holidays, Seek Thermal Inc.’s new Seek Thermal Camera for iOS ($199) is offering a fundamentally different type of camera for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Using a Lightning connector, the Seek Thermal Camera adds affordable thermal photography and videography features to any late-2012 or newer iOS device – the heat-sensitive sort of vision best-known from the Predator movies. While it’s not case-compatible, this accessory is otherwise the most practical thermal camera currently available for iOS devices. (An...

While the update itself won’t bring your ringtones back from the dead, Apple has another way to restore missing purchases: After you install the update, follow Apple’s ringtone restore link (itunes.com/restore-tones) on your device, which will redirect you to iTunes. Follow the on-screen prompts from there.

Let’s go crazy: Inside the making of Purple Rain

The Verge:

In an age where fans expect direct relationships with the artists they love, Prince has turned himself into a reclusive legend. But 30 years ago, he was still a young artist on the cusp of releasing his greatest record — and former Vibe and Spin editor-in-chief Alan Light’s Let’s Go Crazy: Prince and the Making of Purple Rain documents how the record and film came to be.

I’m all kinds of biased as a huge Prince fan but I think the album is still amazing and listen to it at least once a month. The movie doesn’t hold up as well but it’s still a lot of fun to watch every now and then.

iOS 8.1.2 released, will keep your ringtones from...

Apple posted iOS 8.1.2 this afternoon, the second patch for iOS 8.1 and the fifth for iOS 8 overall. The update is available for all devices running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus; all iPads except the first-generation model; and the fifth-generation iPod Touch. Download the update over-the-air or through iTunes—the latter is the better option if your device doesn't have enough free space to install the update.

This one looks pretty minor—the only listed bug fix is for an issue that could cause ringtones purchased through iTunes to disappear from your device. They won't do that anymore, and visiting a "Restore Tones" page on your phone should restore them if you've been affected by the problem. Any other bugs that have been patched are apparently too minor to mention.

YouTube’s app for Apple TV gets major overhaul

Sure, Apple hasn’t done anything major with its Apple TV streaming device in a while, but that doesn’t mean content channels are neglecting it entirely. YouTube announced an update to its Apple TV channel on Tuesday, introducing a complete design makeover and some new features.

The design looks similar to YouTube’s channels found on the Roku and other streaming services, with crisp video thumbnails and tools for easy discovery. New features for the Apple TV include personalized recommendations based on other videos you’ve watched, predictive search, and the ability to subscribe to specific YouTube channels. YouTube’s video announcement calls it “the full YouTube experience, right from your TV.” Sounds about right.

The history of tech in Boston

Apple started slowly rolling out the feature to its iCloud beta site for select users earlier this year before pulling it, but it now seems to have replaced Google for all users of iCloud.com’s Find My iPhone feature (pictured above).

Artcurial Motorcars:

The Collectors’ Car Department at Artcurial has discovered 60 collectors’ automobiles, all major marques dating from the early days of the motor car through to the 1970s. Found following fifty years of lying dormant, the Baillon collection will be sold by Artcurial Motorcars in the first part of the traditional sale at Retromobile Salon, on 6 February 2015, in Paris. These motor cars have been tucked away in a property in the West of France, under makeshift corrugated iron shelters and in various outbuildings.

One of the cars, a Ferrari 250GT SWB California Spyders, is one of only 60 ever built. Another, a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport Frua, is one of just three ever built.

The Netherlands’ beloved racist Christmas tradition

All Day:

Christmas isn’t just about family, feasts, presents, and charity—Christmas in the Netherlands, Belgium, and a few other places round there is also about this odd form of play-acting that the international community has more or less agreed is hugely racially offensive.

I first heard of this tradition many years ago when asking around about other cultures and other countries traditions. A Dutch-born listener to my podcast told me about “Zwarte Piet”. Of course, I didn’t believe them. There’s no way the people of the Netherlands, who Canadians have always had wonderful relations with due to shared history, could be such racists.

Oh, but they can. And they literally revel in it.

Maybe they’ll find someone better, but she could have been good in this.

According to Variety, after beginning discussions to join “Jobs” before the Thanksgiving break, actress Natalie Portman has parted ways with the female lead in the Steve Jobs biopic.

“Jobs” currently stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs and Seth Rogen as Steven Wozniak with Danny Boyle directing. Aaron Sorkin penned the script with Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady producing.

The pic is based on the Walter Isaacson biography and was originally set up at Sony before Universal picked it up out of turnaround when Sony let it go.

Production is expected to start in the spring and while sources don’t have an exact reason why Portman passed, other than news probably breaking before...

Apple makes great phones, tablets and computers; earphones not so much. The ones that come free with the iPhone look attractive, but they’re pretty much worth what you pay for them when it comes to sound quality.

Great sound, though, doesn’t come cheap, which is why a pair of premium headphones or earphones can make the perfect gift for someone who loves their music but perhaps doesn’t have the budget to really splash out on themselves.

If you’re buying for a musician, check out the more studio-oriented recommendations in our music gift guide. For those who will mostly use their headphones while on the move, read on …
