Apple releases iOS and Yosemite updates to fix bugs...

If your iPhone 4s or iPad 2 have been slowing down since upgrading to iOS 8, today’s 8.1.1 update is designed to improve performance on those devices. The release isn’t as major as the feature-packed 8.1, which delivered Apple Pay to iOS devices, but it will fix a few bugs.

To install the update over the air, plug in your device and go through the standard Settings > General > Software Update routine.

OS X is also getting an update: 10.10.1 is here to fix Wi-Fi issues on Macs running Yosemite. Hundreds of complaints about Yosemite Wi-Fi problems have flooded Apple’s support forum since the OS upgrade was released last month. The complaints ranged from spotty connectivity to completely borked Wi-Fi.

A power user’s guide to OS X Server, Yosemite edition

Welcome to Yosemite Server.

Andrew Cunningham

OS X Server is in maintenance mode. That much was clear when Mavericks Server came out a year ago with just a handful of welcome-but-minor tweaks and improvements. The software hasn’t grown stagnant, really—certainly not to the extent of something like Apple Remote Desktop, which only gets updated when it’s time to support a new OS X version. But now OS X Server is changing very little from version to version, and since the untimely death of the Mac Mini Server, Apple isn't even selling any kind of server-oriented hardware.

Still, the Yosemite version of OS X Server changes enough to be worth revisiting. As with our pieces on...

On Friday, you’ll have the option to link your Spotify and Uber accounts within the Uber app. When a music-enabled car responds to your ride request, you can pull up your Spotify playlists within a bottom bar inside the Uber app and jam out. The partnership is launching in 10 cities at first, including San Francisco, New York, London, Stockholm, and Singapore, before rolling out worldwide in coming months.

Prior to the UnionPay deal, China’s iTunes Store customers were forced to set up pre-paid accounts linked directly to bank accounts — a process that was inconvenient and didn’t quick purchases easy.

Apple’s customers in China have been asking for UnionPay support for some time. The company’s senior vice president of Internet Software and...

Samsung Electronics agreed with Apple to produce application processors (APs) from next year for iPhones and iPads, sources said Monday.

The agreement means Samsung will become a primary supplier of APs to Apple, pushing its chief Taiwanese rival TSMC back to second place. From 2016, the company will supply 80 percent of APs used in Apple devices, and TSMC the remainder.

This may be the biggest step to something we used to call "thin client" computing, and eventually, it will expand vastly what we can do with products we currently use more for consumption than creation.

It certainly isn’t the first time Microsoft has put the Surface Pro 3 head to head with MacBooks in its advertisements. The company has been aggressively running the comparison ads poking fun at the MacBook’s lack of tablet-like features since it first compared the devices side-by-side live on stage at the introduction of its 12-inch Surface Pro 3 back in May.

Review: SurfacePad for iPhone 6 and iPad

Some people use cases on their iPhones, some people don’t. If you’re in the second group I’m going to give you reason to consider a case.

While purists don’t want to cover the iPhone 6′s smooth, elegant curves, it’s easy to scratch its beautiful retina display (and aluminum back) while bouncing around in a pocket, bag or purse with a set of keys – and whatever else you might have in there.

What to do?

The good news is that you don’t have to cover your iPhone with a flak jacket or suit of armor to protect your investment, there’s a nice middle ground.

Enter the SurfacePad for iPhone ($49.99) by Twelve South. Its a slim, leather, folio-type case that adds barely any heft and just enough coverage to protect...

Google Maps is one of the App Store’s unsung heroes, an app you probably use daily, yet you rarely think about or tell your friends to download. That’s because for so long it just came with our iPhones—it was there waiting for you to use when you powered up your new phone for the first time. 

But let’s not forget the Great Apple Maps Fail of iOS 6, when all of a sudden Google Maps was ripped from our clutches and we were instead left floundering with a tool that was only half baked. Google left us hanging for a few months before making Google Maps available as a third-party app in the App Store.

Hands On: DropTask (iOS)

Telecommuting is anything but rare these days, and for many people who have to work remotely on group tasks, it often becomes somewhat of a chore to try to stay in contact. Often, users are chained to computers or constant conference calls. DropTask by Think Productivity Ltd has a clever solution, allowing users to share a space within an app, where everyone is able to see the progress of the project from wherever they are....

AT&T ceases “permacookie” tracking program for...

There are consequences for when a wireless carrier installs something that apparently tracks its user base a little too closely with no convenient means of removal.

Per Macworld and ProPublica, wireless carriers Verizon and AT&T have been caught up in a privacy firestorm over their use of so-called “permacookies,” a method of tracking what their users do while browsing the Web with the intent of sharing that data with advertisers. Verizon’s permacookie program lives on, but AT&T has ceased the practice.

AT&T told ProPublica that its use of permacookies was “part of a test,” which has since wrapped up, but the...

China UnionPay is the largest bank card provider in the region, but the App Store has not supported the payment method up to now. Apple has announced that this inconvenience has now been resolved with customers in China now able to link their Apple ID with debit or credit cards from UnionPay.

The addition should help expand the reach of the App Store to even more customers, allowing Apple to bolster its number credit cards on file ahead of an Apple Pay launch in the country. Code references have already been found that show the iPhone 6 NFC element is ready to support China UnionPay purchases.

“Dollar for dollar, the Sound Blaster ROAR produces the best sound of any portable Bluetooth speaker I’ve heard.”

– Tom’s Guide

Thanks to Creative for sponsoring The Loop’s RSS feed this week.

How a pioneering journalist won a race around the...

Grantland:

Nelly Bly’s idea was to try to beat the time of Phileas Fogg, the hero of Jules Verne’s massively popular 1873 novel Around the World in Eighty Days. She’d send dispatches back to the paper, make an adventure out of it. Her editor was in favor, but the World’s business manager — who liked the concept — wanted to send a man.

“It is impossible for you to do it,” he told her. “You are a woman and would need a protector.” Even if she could travel alone, he said, she’d want to take too much baggage. “There is no use talking about it,” he insisted. “No one but a man could do this.”

“Very well,” she said. “Start the man, and I’ll start the same day for some other newspaper and beat him.”

With our world considered made so small with instantaneous communications, high speed train, plane and car travel, it’s hard to imagine what kind of true adventure, in every sense of the word, this would have been in 1889

Apple Disables Trim Support On 3rd Party SSDs In OS X

MojoKid (1002251) writes One of the disadvantages to buying an Apple system is that it generally means less upgrade flexibility than a system from a traditional PC OEM. Over the last few years, Apple has introduced features and adopted standards that made using third-party hardware progressively more difficult. Now, with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the company has taken another step down the path towards total vendor lock-in and effectively disabled support for third-party SSDs. We say "effectively" because while third-party SSDs will still work, they'll no longer perform the TRIM garbage collection command. Being able to perform TRIM and clean the SSD when its sitting idle is vital to keeping the drive at maximum performance. Without it, an SSD's real world performance will steadily degrade over time. What Apple did with OS X 10.10 is introduce KEXT (Kernel EXTension) driver signing. KEXT signing means that at boot, the OS checks to ensure that all drivers are approved and enabled by...

Heyday automatic journal

Heyday:

Heyday transforms the photos and videos on your iPhone into a beautiful journal, presenting you with a delightful way to rediscover your most important memories. And since life happens when you least expect it, Heyday automatically chronicles the places you go and the things you see so you’ll never forget a meaningful place or moment again.

I mentioned and did a bit of a video review of Heyday on the Your Mac Life show last Wednesday. I’m not a “daily journal” kind of guy but Heyday is great for “following you around” and noting the places you’ve been, collating the pics you took and, at your leisure, allowing you to add notes, thoughts and impressions after the fact. Free in the iOS Store.

GTK+ Developers Call For Help To Finish Cross-...

jones_supa writes OpenGL support under GTK is getting into good shape for providing a nice, out-of-the-box experience by default on key platforms for the GTK+ 3.16 / GNOME 3.16 release in March. For a few weeks now within mainline GTK+ has been native OpenGL support and as part of that a new GtkGLArea widget for allowing OpenGL drawing within GTK applications. Since that initial work landed, there's been more GTK+ OpenGL code progressing that right now primarily benefits Linux X11 and Wayland users. While good progress is being made and improvements still ongoing to the GNOME toolkit, GNOME developers are requesting help in ensuring other GTK+ backends can benefit from this OpenGL support. If you are using or planning to use GTK+ 3 on Windows or OS X, and you know how to use OpenGL on those two platforms, please consider helping out the GTK+ developers by implementing the GdkGLContext API using WGL and AppleGL.
