Apple has made GarageBand, iMovie, Numbers, Pages and Keynote free to all Mac and iOS users on the App Store. All of the programs have been free since 2013 with a new Mac or iOS device purchase (and by extension to any other device owned by the user since all purchases are shared between multiple devices courtesy of the App Store), but now the company has made them free to anyone. With the exception of iMovie, the latest versions of all the apps require…

Sonnet's Echo Express III-D, Echo Express III-R...

Sonnet Technologies has announced that its $899 Echo Express III-D (desktop) and $999 Echo Express III-R (rackmount) Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express (PCIe) three-slot expansion chassis are now shipping with full support for Thunderbolt 3. 

With the new interface, both systems enable users of Mac® computers equipped with 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, such as the new MacBook Pro, to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 2750 MB/s of PCI Express bandwidth to support more fully even the most demanding, highest-performance adapter cards, says Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies.

The III-D and III-R Thunderbolt 3 editions support the use of every Thunderbolt 3- and macOS-compatible PCIe card available, including professional video...

For other iCloud accounts, the storage settings panel simply doesn’t load at all, instead displaying an error. Apple has not announced any changes to iCloud storage tiers, so this is most likely a server-side bug …

The hot new Hip Hop producer that does everything on...

Wired, talking about Steve Lacy:

Last year, he was nominated for a Grammy for executive-producing and performing on the 2015 funk-R&B-soul album Ego Death, the third release from The Internet and Lacy’s first with the band. He’s a sought-after producer, featured on albums like J. Cole’s “4 Your Eyez Only” and Kendrick Lamar’s new “Damn.” Earlier in 2017, he released his first solo material, which he’s playing as part of the setlist for The Internet’s worldwide tour. (Somewhere in there he also graduated high school.) The only connection between his many projects? All that music is stored on his iPhone.

And on his process:

He paged through the drum presets in GarageBand for a while before picking a messy-sounding kit. With two thumbs, he tapped out a simple beat, maybe 30 seconds long. Then he went back to the Rickenbacker. He played a riff he’d stumbled on while tuning, recording it on a separate GarageBand track over top of the drums. Without even playing...

Apple to cut royalty rate payments to Imagination...

Apple will probably pay graphics chip designer Imagination Technologies just one third of its current royalty rate as the smartphone giant wind downs their supply deal over the next two years, according to estimates by the UBS research group — as noted by Reuters.

UBS analysts predicted that Imagination would become loss-making by fiscal 2019 without any Apple royalty contributions. They add that the British chip designer will have to consider potential cost-cutting moves to redress the balance.

According to the Financial Times (which requires a subscription), Apple plans to stop using Imagination Technologies intellectual property within two years, ending its royalty payments. The tech giant is working on its own...

A real old Mac Pro vs. the coming Mac Pro

Daniel Pasco, renegade polymath:

I use a 5k iMac for work and am interested in VR production and gaming. Some friends told me to build a dedicated Windows box and others suggested building a Hackintosh, but I was sure there was a better way to get what I wanted.

So I turned a 2009 Mac Pro I picked up off of Ebay for $1300 into a superb professional workstation, gaming, and VR platform, simply by adding an SSD drive and a new video card.

This is a pretty cool idea. Read Dan’s post to see how the machine stacks up as a VR platform (spoiler: very, very well).

But read on, as Dan shifts gears, focusing on the Apple’s coming Mac Pro:

I realized that the corner that Apple has painted us into is just another “sweet solution” (similar to Jobs proposal that we develop web apps for iPhone instead of native apps).

I can do the work that Apple feels is appropriate with a 5k iMac, but the massive pile of external disks and their power supplies stacked...

‘Bon Appétit’ shoots the annual May travel issue...

First, Condé Nast Traveler announced it had shot its first magazine cover with an iPhone 7 Plus. Now Bon Appétit, the publication where “food and culture meet,” says it’s done the same. 

The magazine shot the cover of its May travel issue using the Apple smartphone. Creative director Alex Grossman ventured to Oaxaca, Mexico's Tlacolula Market in search of a way to photograph the issue issue. With a dual-camera system and wide color capture, iPhone 7 Plus captured a beautiful image that reflects the way many of us take and share our travel pictures today, he says.

"The iPhone lens is how we look at photography now," says Grossman. "It changes the whole process and feel of a photo shoot, making it more intimate, less invasive, more nimble. We wanted to create something our reader would relate to."

New York Times: Why you should wait before buying...

Brian X. Chen:

When a splashy new smartphone hits the market, consumers often weigh whether to place an order right away or to wait and see how others react to the device.

But with the Galaxy S8, Samsung’s first major smartphone release since the spontaneously combusting Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued last year, there isn’t much of a debate. Your best bet is to wait to buy the roughly $750 device — not just for safety reasons, but also because other uncertainties surround it.

I just can’t help but wonder if this next bit had anything to do with the Times’ take:

Samsung declined to provide an early review unit of the Galaxy S8 to The New York Times

No matter the logic, this does feel a bit like spite. And Samsung, what were you thinking here? You gave a review unit to the Wall Street Journal, but not the Times?

A few weeks ago Blizzard announced the upcoming summertime release of StarCraft: Remastered, giving a facelift to the classic RTS and its beloved Brood War expansion. Alongside that announcement came other interesting news though: The original (not remastered) versions of both StarCraft and Brood War would be made free sometime in April, alongside a new 1.18 patch.

That time has come. Blizzard dropped the 1.18 patch late on Tuesday, adding in a borderless windowed mode, tweaking some back-end code, correcting some long-standing bugs, improving compatibility with Windows 10, and more.

Rumor: Apple to continue supplying Lightning to 3.5...

Apple seems likely to continue bundling a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter with its new lineup of iPhones this fall. The inclusion, which was implemented with the release of the iPhone 7 last fall, was put into place to help ease the transition to a handset without a traditional 3.5 millimeter headphone jack.

The news is according to a research note out today from Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis who speculates that Apple will likely drop the complimentary adapter sometime in the future, possibly with the 2018 lineup.

Curtis offered the following comment in his notes:

Debate whether Lightning adapter stays in box, we believe it stays this year but goes away at some point, potentially in the 2018 model

Curtis’ research appears to originate from supply chain sources, the report noting that Apple supplier Cirrus Logic will act as a source for the bundled adapter.

Last fall, Apple included both a Lightning to 3.5 millimeter headphone jack...

System 7.0.1/early Macintosh emulator now available...

This is about as true a labor of Mac love and geekiness as it gets.

The cool cats over at the Internet Archive have worked out an in-browser emulation engine for early models of the Apple Macintosh.

While there are certainly predecessors to the computer desktop paradigm, the introduction of the Macintosh brought it to a mass market and in the 30 years since, it has been steadily adapted by every major computing platform and operating system.

The archive itself features a curated set of applications, games and operating systems from 1984 to 1989.

The story of the creation of the operating system and the Macintosh itself are covered in many collections at the Archive, including this complete run of Macworld magazine and these deep-dive Macintosh books.

The archive is a 40 megabyte download that features System 7.0.1 and a rather rich recreation of the MacOS experience of 1991.

Apple granted patent for ‘linked user accounts’

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,626,720) for “linked user accounts” that would allow separate Apple ID user accounts to be linked into a group of linked user accounts so that content items assigned to each of the user accounts can be accessed by each user account in the group. 

Linking user accounts in this way allows the individual user accounts to share content items while also retaining their individual properties such as username, password, preference data, etc. This allows each user account to retain the content items assigned to the user account when the user account is unlinked from the group. 

According to the patent filing, linking user accounts can be restricted according to linking rules that dictate how many user accounts can be included in a group, when a user account can be added or removed from a group, etc. A master user account can set parameters restricting content items accessible to the user accounts in the group, as well as money spent...

PhotoSweeper is a fine companion to the Mac’s Photos...

I take photos. Lots of photos. I snap most of 'em with my iPhone 7s Plus (a great digital camera, by the way). My Photos library has approximately a million images (well, okay, I’m exaggerating). A lot of them are duplicates, or very similar, and should be trashed. But I'm too lazy to undertake the process manually.

Enter PhotoSweeper, a $9.99 photo finder for macOS 10.10 and higher. It works with Photos and Adobe Lightroom. The app helps you find and eliminate duplicate or similar images. Photos are compared regardless of their sizes or formats and are grouped by similarity. PhotoSweeper works quickly and efficiently, and is a great tool for taming your photo library and retrieving always-valuable disk space.

The interface is a breeze to use. It boasts a single screen that offers easy access to all features. Just drag and drop folders to allow PhotoSweeper to scan and find...

Working Smarter: your keyboard could be the key

If you happen to do your typing on any Apple keyboard, you might want to consider a different keyboard. There’s nothing inherently wrong with Apple keyboards, mice, and trackpads except that there are alternatives that do the same things better, faster, or more elegantly (at least for me).

I type noticeably faster on almost any keyboard that has longer key travel than Apple’s keyboards—one with taller keys that travel up and down more than Apple’s—which have notoriously short throws. If you’re a decent touch typist, you might want to try other keyboards to see if they improve your speed and/or accuracy as much as they do mine.

My keyboard of choice is the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, a relic I’ve relied upon for over a decade. It’s not even a Mac keyboard, but the key travel and bounce are superb, and the...

Notable apps and app updates for April 19, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Zevrix Solutions has announced Graphic Inspector 2.2, a feature update to its quality control solution for images and vector files. 

The software solves the problem of quickly locating files with specific resolution, color, spot channels, fonts and other attributes. The app can also search metadata, report image compression, and save search criteria in workflow specific presets. Version 2.2 lets users select image editing app of their choice instead of opening files with default program.

Graphic Inspector can be purchased from the Zevrix website for $19.95. It’s free with purchase of PDF Checkpoint or InPreflight Pro for Adobe InDesign. A demo...

StarCraft Is Now Free, Nearly 20 Years After Its...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from TechCrunch: Nearly two decades after its 1998 release, StarCraft is now free. Legally! Blizzard has just released the original game -- plus the Brood War expansion -- for free for both PC and Mac. You can find it here. Up until a few weeks ago, getting the game with its expansion would've cost $10-15 bucks. The company says they've also used this opportunity to improve the game's anti-cheat system, add "improved compatibility" with Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, and fix a few long lasting bugs. So why now? The company is about to release a remastered version of the game in just a few months, its graphics/audio overhauled for modern systems. Once that version hits, the original will probably look a bit ancient by comparison -- so they might as well use it to win over a few new fans, right?

Tiny Core: Small Footprint, Big Potential


Tiny Core Linux 8.0, released last week, is a minimalist Linux OS built from scratch with a focus on being as small as possible. That means you should be able to run this Linux distro on a wide range of legacy machines. The tradeoff for ultra smallness, however, often is a not-so-powerful OS that can leave you longing for better options. The Core Project is based on a highly modular system with community build extensions or applications. This is more a set of building blocks than a finely tuned distro.

Facebook already integrates with Apple Music in the main app with a song sharing feature dubbed Music Stories. It lets users share tracks from Apple Music directly to the Facebook feed where music can be previewed inline and opened in Apple Music.

Mac: Overmacs PhotoSweeper 3.0

If you’re anything like us, you probably have more duplicate photos laying around your Mac than you know how to deal with, especially considering the multiple tools Apple has created over the years for managing photos. We’ve been through iPhoto, and then Aperture, and now the macOS Photos app, and since digital memories are often precious, it’s not uncommon to be a little reluctant to trash a folder of photos unless you’re absolutely certain that you’ve got a copy somewhere else. So unless you’re hardcore about spending time keeping your file system and photo libraries in pristine order, chances are you’ve got duplicate folders of photos sitting around in dusty corners of your filesystem. Enter PhotoSweeper 3.0 ($10), OverMacs’ latest update to our favorite app for dealing with duplicate photos across all of your libraries and filesystems. Version 3.0 adds a great new “side-by-side” view that lets you much more easily compare photos from two distinct sources, ensuring...

Logitech Pop programmable buttons get HomeKit support

I have some HomeKit lights and smart plugs in my house, but I have to put them in low-traffic areas because I am the only member of my family who’s both willing and able to use an iPhone or an Apple Watch to turn on a lamp. Everyone else insists on using their hands. So old fashioned.

Logitech to the rescue. The company announced Monday it was adding HomeKit support to a new version of the Pop, a small button you can program to act as a light switch or trigger a HomeKit scene. If I place a Pop button next to every lamp I have plugged into a smart switch, my family can press that to turn the light on or off. As it stands today, if they use the lamp’s own control to turn it off, that lamp stays off, and HomeKit can’t turn it back on, which effectively breaks any HomeKit scene that includes that lamp,...

Mac and iOS users with old hardware can now get some of Apple's fundamental software for free. According to a report from MacRumors, the iWork and iLife suite of apps, including iMovie, Numbers, Keynote, Pages, and GarageBand for Mac and iOS, are now listed as free in the App Store.

Previously, users with old hardware had to pay for each app. Individual programs cost between $5 and $20 each, which would add up if a user with an old Mac or iOS device wanted to download and use both suites. In 2013, Apple made iWork and iLife apps free for new Mac and iOS customers, but that meant you had to purchase a...

ecobee3 lite adds room sensor compatibility

The ecobee3 lite smart thermostat gained a new capability today -- like the "full-fledged" ecobee3, the lite version now talks to ecobee's room sensors. The capability was added with an automatic firmware update that was pushed to the devices, and existing owners of the ecobee3 lite can now purchase room sensors at just $79 for a package of two.

This was one of the most-requested features for the ecobee3 lite, as it gives users the ability to monitor and control temperatures in multiple rooms, and brings the perfect temperature to the rooms that matter the most. 

The ecobee3 lite smart thermostat is available for $169 in the USA ($219 in Canada) from ecobee.com, Amazon.com and Amazon.ca. Starting on May 15, it will also be available at Home Depot, Best Buy and Lowes stores.

Previously, all of these apps were provided for free to customers who purchased a new Mac or iOS device, but now that purchase is not required to get the software. Many Apple customers were already likely eligible to download the software at no cost if they had made a device purchase in the last few years.

Facebook is making it possible to hang out with your friends in virtual reality using Spaces, a new app the company launched Tuesday for the Oculus Rift. The app will allow people to join a shared, immersive video call, represented by a personalized avatar.

Using Spaces, people can hang out around a virtual reality table, share three-dimensional drawings and use the Rift’s built-in microphone to chat with one another. Users can also surround themselves and their friends with 360-degree photos and videos from Facebook’s library of content.

People who don’t have a Rift headset can also be included in a Spaces hangout by using Facebook’s Messenger video calling functionality. Users will be able to view a Space from their smartphone, and have their video call shown inside the virtual reality environment.

Facebook's efforts to embed camera functionality in all the apps it runs isn’t just a push to crush Snapchat. The company will be using those cameras as a way to create a developer platform for augmented reality, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed Tuesday.

Developers and artists can work on building augmented reality camera lenses with AR Studio, a new development environment that Facebook released in closed beta. The environment offers users tools to make it easier to create augmented reality scenes like masks and other overlays that react to the scene around them.

Starting Tuesday, artists can also design custom frames for the Facebook camera that will overlay images over a photo or video, much like Snapchat's current platform for its lenses.

Many AWT readers own Epson printers; the company has been supplying printers to the Apple world since the early 80's, and now most people are familiar with their all-in-one printer/scanner devices.

Apple To Launch Three New iPhones This Year:...

Apple is reportedly building three new iPhones, though the one with the most new features might not launch until a couple of months after the others. According to a report on Bloomberg, Apple is testing three new phones that it plans to launch this fall, including two with the same screen sizes as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The third iPhone, which may be named to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone's launch, is said to pack a new design with a stainless steel frame and curved glass. It's said to feature an embedded fingerprint reader and use OLED panels from Samsung and may have a screen that takes up most of the front of the smartphone's face. From the article: Apple also tested a more ambitious prototype with the same slightly curved front and steel frame, but a glass back with more dramatic curves on the top and bottom like the original iPhone design from 2007, one of the people said.

Many of us were expecting updated iPad Pros last month, but they may be coming soon. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro stock situation appears to be dwindling, with nearly no stock of popular models in high-volume stores, and an expected refresh date across the board of May 16, according to AppleInsider.

The article says that spot-checks of 20 Apple Retail stores show decreasing stock levels or no stock at all at retail. And Apple’s online store is completely sold out of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. 

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Quo has predicted thatApple will introduce three iPads this year: a 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2 and a "low-cost" 9.7-inch iPad, along with a new bezel-free, mid-size model in the range of between 10 and 10.5 inches.

The 12.9-inch update will reportedly feature the True Tone display introduced with its 9.7-inch...

Smartphones know an awful lot about us. They know if we're in a car that's speeding, and they know when we're walking, running, or riding in a bus. They know how many calls we make and receive each day and the precise starting and ending time of each one. And of course, they know the personal identification numbers we use to unlock the devices or to log in to sites that are protected by two-factor authentication. Now, researchers have devised an attack that makes it possible for sneaky websites to surreptitiously collect much of that data, often with surprising accuracy.

While Maps is far and away the most popular tool for traversing the globe, Google hasn’t forgotten about its other project, Earth. And just in time for Earth Day, Google is giving it a major upgrade.

In an event at the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City today, Google took the wraps off the new Earth project for Android and Chrome. The fruits of nearly two years of labor, the new app’s marquee feature, called Voyager, enhances the way you explore the planet, adding tours guided by “some of the world’s leading storytellers, scientists, and nonprofits.”

For example, you can now take a journey though through jungles with BBC Earth or learn about chimpanzees in Gombe National Park from Jane Goodall. Google says there are “more than 50 immersive stories in Voyager, and more added weekly.” Google has also added a fun new “I’m feeling lucky” button into Google Earth, which will take you to a...

Uber Central lets businesses hail a car for you

Uber wants businesses to do away with shuttle buses for customers, and has launched a new service aimed at making it easier for companies to hail cars on other people’s behalf. Called Uber Central, the software lets users request cars even for people who don’t have accounts with the ride-hailing company.

Here’s how it works: company employees who have access to the Uber Central console input a customer’s name and phone number, along with their pickup and drop-off address. After that, they can request a ride from Uber’s menu of services, or save the data as a draft for easier use later.

The Uber Central dashboard, which is available worldwide, also lets employees track the status of rides. It’s built on top of Uber for Business, a version of the ride-hailing platform that has been built for use by companies rather than individuals.

A large patent-holding company called Unwired Planet reached a settlement with Apple at 1:00am on Monday, just hours before a jury trial was set to start in San Francisco. A jury had already been selected but was dismissed on Monday morning after the parties' lawyers told US District Judge Vincent Chhabria about their settlement.

Unwired Planet is the patent-holding remains of early mobile company Openwave, which acquired several hundred US patents from Ericsson in early 2013, with Ericsson getting 20 percent of any patent settlements. Later that year, Unwired Planet sued Apple.

In 2015, Judge Chhabria ruled that Apple didn't infringe the four patents at issue in the case. Chhabria's ruling was mostly overturned...
