Finding Nemo ranks up there with my favorite Pixar movies. Here’s hoping that Finding Dory lives up to expectations.

A solid start, bringing back Ellen and Albert Brooks. The core is intact. The video is embedded in the main post.

First impressions of the iPad Pro

iPad Pro (back), iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 2. Photo©2015, Steven Sande

It was a bit of a surprise to me yesterday when I went to order an iPad Pro and found out that I could pick it up at my local Apple Store. After an abortive attempt to get the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular version in Space Gray, I was able to get that model in silver. So, does it fulfill the expectations everyone had for the biggest iPad yet?

It's definitely an iPad, and the size will astound you. The photo at the top of this post shows an iPad mini 2, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro. The 12.9-inch display honestly makes the Pro seem huge by comparison, but the weight of the large unit really doesn't feel that bad. Even with that display, the iPad Pro weighs just 1.57 pounds for the Wi-Fi edition, adding just .02 pounds more for the cellular modem. If those weights sound heavy, just remember that the original 9.7-inch iPad in the Wi-Fi + 3G edition from 2010 weighed 1.6 pounds.

The screen is pretty...

Yahoo rolls out slick new search results exclusively...

Yahoo’s deal to be the default search engine in Firefox is nearly a year old and over that time Yahoo’s search market share has crept up and down. Now, the company is trying to use exclusive features as a way to entice more U.S. Firefox users to stick with Yahoo.

Anyone in the U.S. searching for items such as movies, songs, and sports from the Firefox Awesome Bar or search box will see a new search layout on Yahoo. The most obvious change is that the top of the results page now has a banner of images and video related to the search.

Firefox finally comes to iOS

At long last, Firefox has come to iOS. Rather unusually, this is the first version of the Firefox browser that does not use the Gecko layout engine, instead using iOS's built-in WebKit-based layout engine. The app is available as a free download from the App Store.

Way back in 2010, Mozilla released an app called Firefox Home for iOS. This app didn't include a Web browser; rather, it just used Firefox Sync to pull down your browsing history and bookmarks from your desktop installation of Firefox. Home was retired way back in 2012—and then... there was nothing for a very long time. In December 2014, Mozilla finally announced that Firefox would be coming back to iOS—and this time, it would actually contain a Web browser.

Firefox for iOS has a pretty...

NetNewsWire Updates Solid But Fail to Impress

NetNewsWire was the king of Apple-centric RSS readers long ago, but has lately been overshadowed by the likes of Feedly and Reeder. Now, publisher Black Pixel has revived the newsreader app for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and even the Apple TV. But these apps feel like also-rans in their current forms.

Future water resistant Apple devices could force...

Apple is working on water resistant (if not quite waterproof) OS X and iOS devices according to a new patent filing (number 201503269659) at the U.S. Patent & Trademark office. The invention, dubbed “liquid explosion from an orifice,” would expel water from speaker and microphone cavities using varied electric charges and acoustics. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, typically, at least some portion of the cavity or chamber of a portable device’s acoustic chamber is exposed to the external environment to allow acoustic signals to be transmitted to or received from the surrounding medium. However, because the cavity or chamber is exposed to the external environment, liquid or moisture may accumulate or become trapped in the cavity or chamber, which may impair the performance of the acoustic module. Apple wants to alleviate that problem in its iPhone, iPad, and Mac laptop lines.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “...

EyeFi, the company behind the popular SD cards that carry WiFi support, has today announced that it has acquired OkDoThis. OkDoThis is a popular photography app on iOS that aims to inspire photographers to take a taking pictures daily and offering a platform on which they can share and discuss photography. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In a press release, EyeFi explained that the acquisition of OkDoThis allows it to more directly engage with photographers. With the OkDoThis team on board, EyeFi will be able to work to integrate social features into its own apps and products.

OkDoThis is a widely praised app on iOS that has amassed nearly 400 ratings and has a 4 and a half star average. Most recently, it was updated with iPad support and 3D Touch...

Users Balk at Mobile App Permission Requests

The Pew Research Center on Tuesday released a report on permissions and mobile applications found in the Google Play store. The number of permissions requested by a mobile app can be a deal breaker for six out of 10 smartphone users, Pew found. Applications request permission from users to access a variety of functions on a smartphone -- accessing the Internet, for example, or using the device's camera. Most apps can't function without permissions, but a good number of them also personal gather data about users, Pew said.

Outback Solo offers stylish protection for a 12-inch...

WaterField Designs has served up another elegant carry case with the Outback Solo for the 12-inch MacBook. It's a handsome, practical US$109 case made of waxed canvas and premium leather.

Not only does it hold your MacBook with style, it’s great for carrying an iPhone and iPad mini, as well. Two front pockets hold a smartphone or smaller tablet, items such as wallets and keys, and a charger for an overnight trip. An optional strap ($19) transforms the case into an over-the-shoulder bag. I’d recommend springing for this as it's extremely handy when you’re hoofing it.

The Outback Solo is durable and offers substantial protection. It cradles the MacBook Air with two layers: neoprene enveloped in highly water-resistant, tan waxed canvas. If you need a Mac Book case that's both stylish and rugged, the Outback Solo fills the bill.

The research group says Xcode beats Android on all measures on which it was evaluated. Developer tools are an important component of platform support and Apple's end to end system for app development to distribution is the reason the platform boasts some of the most advanced applications, says David MacQueen, executive director of Apps Research, Strategy Analytics.

iPad Pro comfortably outperforms iPad Air 2 in...

ArsTechnica has been putting the iPad Pro through its paces in a whole raft of benchmark tests, comparing it to other iOS devices as well as to MacBooks and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4.

When it comes to other iPads, nothing comes close in Geekbench tests. In single-core tests, the iPad Pro gets an overall score of 3233 against 1831 for the iPad Air 2. The much newer iPhone 6S gets closest, at 2537.

In multi-core tests, the differences look far more modest, but there’s a twist … 

While the A8X chip in the iPad Air 2 uses three CPU cores running at 1.84GHz, Apple has managed to comfortably outpace it using just two cores running at around 2.25GHz. So while the...

You can now get the alternative web browser Firefox for iPhone and iPad in the App Store. Except its not really Firefox as you know it on the desktop, because the underlying engine is all WebKit, not Mozilla’s Gecko renderer like it is on the Mac. This is the same as the iOS Google Chrome app — the App Store rules require browsers to use the Safari WebKit engine. This isn’t really a bad thing, the WebKit rendering core is the industry leading mobile (and desktop) engine.

You might want to use Firefox for iPhone and iPad if you use Firefox on the Mac, due to UI similarities for the browser chrome or just for syncing convenience. The Firefox app will sync bookmarks, open tabs across all your devices by logging...

Apple CEO Tim Cook: "Microsoft Surface Book...

MojoKid writes: Apple CEO Tim Cook isn't making any friends on the PC side of the aisle this week. Cook took to the interview circuit this week to heavily promote the release of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro and didn't waste any time kicking some dirt in the eyes of PC consumers around the world. When questioned on his thoughts about PCs, Cook wondered, "I think if you're looking at a PC, why would you buy a PC anymore? No really, why would you buy one?" Many would take issue with those comments. But we'll leave those comments behind, because Cook decided to set his targets on the current darling of the PC community — the Microsoft Surface Book. Even though Cook says that his company's relationship with Microsoft is "really good," he went on to say that the Surface Book "tries too hard to do too much" and that "it's trying to be a tablet and a notebook and it really succeeds at being neither." It will be interesting to see Mr. Cook's reaction as sales figures for the device roll in...

iPad Pro unboxing and first impressions [Video]

Today we’re taking a look at the iPad Pro. On the surface, it may look like a giant Netflix machine, but well… it kind of is. This is the biggest iPad ever without a doubt, that packs a 12.9-inch display and obviously has a much larger footprint when compared to the iPad Air 2, this is larger by 78 percent actually. But enough with the small talk, let’s take a look inside of the box..,

As far as specifications go, Apple’s iPad Pro is packing the A9X processor inside, with 4GB of RAM, and either 32GB or in my case 128GB of internal storage. As I mentioned, there’s a 12.9-inch display with a resolution of 2732 x 2048 which is good for 265ppi.

Apple in talks to develop a person-to-person payment...

According to unnamed sources speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is looking to expand Apple Pay to include a person-to-person payment option in order to compete with services like PayPal’s Venmo or Google’s person-to-person payments through Google Wallet.

The sources said that no deals have been struck with any banks yet, but the WSJ notes that heavy-hitters such as JP Morgan Chase, Capitol One, Wells Fargo, and US Bank have sat down with Apple to discuss the possibility of a partnership. Several banks, like Chase, already have a person-to-person payment function through their own website or app.

One source told the paper that a person-to-person option could get off the ground as early as next year.

Apple is in talks with major banks on an extension of its Apple Pay service that would allow person-to-person payments.

The discussions are continuing and it’s unclear whether any banks have struck a deal with Apple, reported The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, citing “people familiar with the talks.”

The newspaper said the envisaged service would allow users to send payments from their checking accounts to others using their phone and isn’t imminent. It said one person had told it the service could launch in 2016.

Apple is in discussions with U.S. banks such as J.P. Morgan Chase, Capital One, Wells Fargo, and U.S. Bancorp to develop a mobile person-to-person payment service that would compete with PayPal’s Venmo platform, reports The Wall Street Journal, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the talks.”

The article describes the talks as ongoing and notes that it’s unclear if Apple and any banks have struck a deal. If — and that’s with a capital I — the deals are worked out, the service could launch next year. The WSJ says that, under the current discussions, Apple wouldn’t charge the banks for participating in its person-to-person payment service, which is different from Apple Pay in which the banks pay Apple for each transaction.

Person-to-person services like Venmo and Square Cash...

iWorks: A whole lotta updatin' going on

Along with a totally new device (the iPad Pro) coming out today, Apple today released updates to all of the iWork apps both on iOS and Mac OS X.

The updates primarily do two things: provide bug fixes for compatibility with Microsoft Office documents and make the apps more stable on both platforms. 

The Mac update fixed an issue in Keynote when exporting presentations as images, and another with master slides that included links. Pages on the Mac can now open some Microsoft Word documents that were previously impossible to open, and resolves an issue that prevented the use of Look Up for words in lists. Numbers can now open more Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

On the iOS side, Apple fixed Keynote for an issue when opening presentations that contained many images, and Numbers got a fix for a problem where documents wouldn't open to the last saved position.

Early iPad Pro reviews: Apple's massive new...

The iPad Pro is a giant iPad. The 12.9-inch addition to Apple’s tablet line-up went on sale today, and according to early looks at the Pro from a few major publications, the massive iPad will be familiar to anyone who’s used one of its predecessors.

But its big display, while the most noticeable of the Pro’s features, isn’t its only selling point. Critics say the Pro’s 4GB of RAM is the reason why iOS 9’s trio of multitasking features—Split View, Picture-in-Picture, and Slide Over—are extra useful and lightning fast on the new tablet compared to older ones.

Podcast 482: Who does the iPad Pro work for?

The iPad Pro: (huh, good god, y'all) who is it good for? Absolutely everyone? Absolutely no one? Or somewhere in between? Glenn and Susie discuss the upcoming mega-tablet, and how it was probably inevitable even though it's not going to *halt the sale of computers,* no matter what kind of jive Tim Cook manages to say with a straight face. (There's a weird little nugget of potentially bad news buried in that same interview, actually, that got totally overshadowed by the hyperbole, which is a shame.)

Elsewhere, we discuss some proof-of-concept ransomware for the Mac (that's bad), the cool-sounding new HDR app from Macphun (that's good), and some awesome tips for the new Apple TV, which got its first update this week, which reminded us all—hey, you can't back this thing up, can you? Aw geez, here we go again. (Also, Glenn still has fiber internet. Shocker.)

Early looks at Apple's gargantuan new tablet have begun to trickle in, with most reviewers coming to relatively similar conclusions: the iPad Pro is an excellent machine and the best iPad yet, but iOS means it won't be a laptop replacement anytime soon.

Apple to launch 1,000 new jobs in Ireland

Apple plans to hire an additional 1,000 workers in Ireland, reports Reuters. Ireland's main foreign investment agency, the IDA, says the Cupertino, California-Based company will add 1,000 jobs to its office in Cork by mid-2017 from 5,000 at present. 

Finance Minister Michael Noonan told Reuters that the company had also added 1,000 jobs in the past year. He said the deal showed that the controversy around Apple's tax deal "hasn't affected their enthusiasm for Ireland".

"I think they are bringing a lot of intellectual property onshore too, but that's less clear," he said.

The EU, Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency, has claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big companies avoid tax in other countries, including EU members. The...

Mac ransomware is nothing to worry about—for now

Apple computers haven’t been impacted by ransomware, a pervasive and insidious class of malware that encrypts files on a computer in exchange for a ransom.

That’s not because Apple’s operating system is any more secure than Windows; it’s more that malware writers haven’t gotten around to writing ransomware for OS X since infecting Windows machines has been so profitable.

However, a Brazilian security researcher, Rafael Salema Marques, decided to show how easy it would be for malware writers to target OS X in a polished experiment that took him a couple of days.

IHS: iPad Pro shows Apple’s long term commitment to...

With today’s launch of the iPad Pro, Apple is making a long-term commitment to the tablet, according to Rhoda Alexander of IHS Technology, a provider of global market, industry and technical expertise. 

“With a mid-November launch, Apple may struggle to reach the three million mark on sales of the new iPad Pro, but supply is likely to be more of an obstacle than demand,” she says. “With the current 2015 production outlook targeting a figure slightly below two million units demand could easily outstrip supply.”

In 2013 11-inch and larger tablets accounted for just 3.1 million units in an overall market of 241 million. That’s a figure equal to shipments of the original iPad in its first quarter on the market. In 2015 that number is expected to pass 10 million units, with a solid boost from the new iPad Pro.

“With 200 million units in the 2015...

The iPad Pro

First impressions last a lifetime, goes the adage. You’re going to have to forget your first impressions of the iPad to understand the iPad Pro.

When Apple introduced the original iPad in 2010, it was explicitly positioned in a new role for a device — somewhere between an iPhone and a MacBook. That seems obvious, but the problem, for the iPad, is that people loved their iPhones and MacBooks. The only way iPad would succeed, Steve Jobs said, was if it were “far better at doing some key things” than either an iPhone or MacBook.

Apple succeeded. Simply by nature of having a bigger display, the iPad was better than the iPhone for numerous tasks — watching videos or reading long-form text, to name just two. No one would dispute that bigger displays are better for certain tasks — you can prove the...

iPad Pro review: Mac-like speed with all the virtues...

Enlarge / The iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, and Apple Pencil. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

This year, Apple seems to want to push the iPad and the Mac as close together as it can without actually combining them into a single product. Earlier this spring, the new MacBook brought a super slim profile, a Retina display, and a simple-to-a-fault one-port-for-everything design to a fanless computer that still runs OS X. And now, the iPad Pro is bringing a MacBook Air-level processor, more memory, a larger screen, and a first-party keyboard accessory to a big tablet that still runs iOS 9.

It’s Apple’s take on the same basic idea as Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup, and just as Microsoft has advertised the Surface as “the tablet that can replace your laptop,” Apple is...

∞ Review: iPad Pro

I’ve been using the iPad Pro for just over a week now and I’ll tell you, I’m more impressed than what I thought I would be. The first question I set out to solve was “who is the target market for iPad Pro?” While I thought that would be a difficult question to answer, it turned out to be quite simple. More on that later.

16 weird, crazy apps for the new Apple TV

The good, the bad, and the ugly

If you have one of the new Apple TVs, chances are that any non-game apps you’ve downloaded are media streaming apps, like Netflix or TED. It’s the Apple TV, after all.

But that hasn’t stopped developers from creating apps for this new platform that have nothing to do with watching films or TV shows—or, indeed, much to do with reality or common sense, it would sometimes appear. We’ve scoured the entire tvOS App Store to find those apps that can charitably be described as “pushing the boundaries” of what you might want to do on a 55-inch screen in your living room.

As demoed by Apple on stage, the latest instalment of Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero Live, is now available on Apple TV. It’s just like classic Guitar Hero, a three-lane rhythm based game, but modernised with better visuals, ‘real’ band members, enhanced crowd reactions, and more.

On the iPhone and iPad version, you can play two trial songs for free or pay $50 via In-App Purchase to unlock the full game with 38 additional songs. However, on Apple TV, the game is completely non-functional without the controller accessory. You have to buy the controller for the game to work at all. Incidentally, you can...

You can now install popular automatic screen...

With iOS 9, it is now possible to install screen brightness app Flux (or f.lux). Flux adjusts screen brightness and color depending on the time of day automatically, so you aren’t blasted with bright light at bedtime or early in the morning. Due to App Store restrictions, Flux has been only available on the Mac OS X platform until now. Whilst it isn’t available through the App Store, you can now download and install the Flux beta for iPhone and iPad by sideloading the app through Xcode on the Mac.

It sounds complicated but it’s actually really easy to do. Apple lifted the developer limitations on device app sideloading earlier this year, so it’s completely free. Until Apple relaxes App Store policies, this will be the only way to do this. Read the...

Popular live streaming app Periscope has today announced a major update for its iOS app, bringing with it a handful of new features and optimizations for Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The update bumps the app to version 1.3 and was detailed in a blog post on Medium by Periscope.

First off, the update introduces a new version of the app’s popular Global Map feature. This capability was originally introduced back in June with a handful of limitations. The Global Map didn’t originally show replays and was limited to showing 250 total broadcasts. Now, the app is capable of showing more streams, as well as replays. Live streams are denoted by red dots, while blue dots represent replays from the last 24 hours.

Popular Instagram client removed from App Store for...

Apple today has pulled a popular Instagram client from the App Store after it was found to be harvesting usernames and passwords. First noticed by developer David L-R on Twitter, the Instagram client InstaAgent has been pulled from the App Store. The app, downloaded more than half a million times, touted that it would let you see who had been viewing your Instagram profile.

David L-R notes in his tweets that InstaAgent was sending account information, including usernames and passwords, unencrypted to a remote server that was not connected to Instagram officially in any way, shape, or form. In extreme cases, InstaAgent was using that login information to post photos to users’ accounts without their consent.

The app seemingly had passed Apple’s review process without...

Deep Learning App Targets Malware

Here's the problem with most programs aimed at killing malicious software: They need someone to tell them something's malicious. What if, however, the programs had the smarts to identify bad code on their own? That's what a company called Deep Instinct says its security solution, launched last week, can do. The offering works its magic with a technology called "deep learning." "Deep learning draws its inspiration from the human mind. It organizes itself into a structure of synthetic neurons," explained analyst Bruce Daley.

Apple Pay has been around for a little over a year, but it’s still difficult to know which stores let you bust out your iPhone or Apple Watch to pay.

Pay Finders is a free iOS app to help you find a store near you with the NFC technology needed to accept Apple Pay. It’s not the first app of its kind, but its creator, entrepreneur Brian Roemmele, told Re/code that he hopes to make it be the most accurate by using crowd-sourced data from Apple Pay users, as well as the business owners themselves.
