New 15-inch 2.5 GHz MacBook Pro unboxed and compared...

Apple’s new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is here and available in a few different configurations. We’re take a closer look at the 2.5 GHz model with 16GB of RAM, and 512 GB of internal storage today, but also comparing some benchmarks to Apple’s two other 15-inch configurations for this year.

This MacBook features slight improvements in the battery department, makes the switch from NVIDIA to AMD for discrete graphics, faster internal storage, and also includes Apple’s new Force Touch trackpad as we’ve seen with other MacBook releases this year….

You won’t find any surprises inside of the box. Included is a quick start guide, Apple stickers, microfiber cleaning cloth, 85W MagSafe...

Chase Bank iPhone app now lets you log in with Touch...


Nearly a year after Touch ID support for third-party developers was announced for iOS 8, major bank Chase has added fingerprint login support to its iPhone application. When you launch the new app update for the first time, the application will ask you if you’d like to turn on Touch ID support. The bank warns that some functions will still require you to enter your password, but this upgrade should still make the app quicker to navigate for many use cases. The app has also gained complete support for the iPhone 6 Plus...

Caturday: Norwegian cats love their Macs

Last week's Caturday cat of the week was Leo, a beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat who was in the process of updating her MacBook Pro to the latest Mac OS X 10.10.4 beta. Maybe this is a trend, or maybe all cats in Norway have MacBooks, because this week we're bringing you a sweet Norwegian kitteh who appears to be working on this MacBook Pro! The photo is courtesy of Jørn Aune, who tells us:

“Norwegian cats seem to love Macs. I was called in to help a friend with his MacBook, but we had to wait for another user to log off first. I dont know if this cat knows how to use a computer, or if this MacBook just feels like a warm and cozy place to be, but the cat seemed to like sitting there. I don’t know what kind of breed this cat is.”

Judge certifies class action against SiriusXM over...

The Hollywood Reporter:

A huge lawsuit against SiriusXM over its performance of pre-1972 sound recordings is officially no longer just about Flo & Eddie of The Turtles. On Wednesday, the high-stakes litigation took another major step forward after U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez granted a motion for class certification.

Big implications.

Apple says Watch OS 1.0.1 attempts to record heart...

Apple Watch running the original 1.0 software rather reliably recorded a user’s heart rate every ten minutes. With Watch OS 1.0.1, users noticed that heart rate records were no longer being kept as frequently. This was initially thought to be a bug but Apple has now clarified that this is intended behaviour on its website.

The updated website says that ‘Apple Watch attempts to measure your heart rate every ten minutes, but won’t record it when you are in motion or your arm is moving’. The original version of this feature did not care about arm movement.

This has caused some complaints...

Review: Incase’s Reform Sling Pack is a perfect fit...

For the right task, Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook is both an ultra thin notebook and a powerful machine considering its size. Following my initial evaluation in April, I’ve been using it for work almost exclusively (aside from my podcasting setup for Happy Hour, which doesn’t benefit from being portable).

Similarly, the newly released Incase Reform Collection Sling Pack hides a surprising amount of use in a small and ergonomic profile. Typical of Incase’s bags and carrying cases, Sling Pack sports a trendy design fit for your Apple gear and accessories with cleverly placed stash pockets found throughout. Unlike previous products from Incase (and anyone else for that matter), Sling Pack is made of a new eco-friendly material…

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

With distinctive art, weird premises, and humorous dialogue, LucasArts classics like Full Throttle, Monkey Island, and Grim Fandango earned a devoted following on the PC. But sadly, the studio ceased making games in 2013, ending the era of a trusted brand in game development. Luckily for us, Double Fine Productions and Tim Schafer, one of the masterminds behind the original, stepped up to re-master Grim Fandango for an entirely new generation of fans, bringing this much-loved classic over to mobile with ease. Even if you’re new to the franchise, here are three reasons...

Media streaming is becoming an ever-crowded market thanks to players like Chromecast, Sling, Apple TV and Roku. We can add another player to the mix with Lenovo Cast, which will become available in August. The puck-shaped accessory can stream 1080p video to your TV from your smartphone, tablet or computer. What's compelling about this is it can display just about anything you have on your smartphone through DLNA and Miracast capability. That should make it a bit more versatile than a Chromecast, which, outside of some app integrations, is run from a Chrome browser.

Opinion: Google’s new Photos may just have won my...

Google Photos

My relationship with Apple’s hardware is simple: I’m happily locked in, and not changing platforms any time soon. But my relationship with Apple’s software is complex: I want to love it, but every time Apple decides to “throw everything away” and “start over” with an app, it’s disruptive — and for many users, unnecessary. From my perspective, users weren’t complaining that Apple’s popular photo apps iPhoto or Aperture were hopelessly broken or even deficient in major ways, yet Apple discontinued both of them last month to release Photos, a bare-bones alternative no one seems to love. On the relationship scale, I didn’t abandon Aperture; Aperture abandoned me (and a lot of other people).

So yesterday’s announcement of the free cross-platform photo and video storage app Google Photos couldn’t have come at a better time. Apple has...

Apple thought it was being subtle by sending unmarked, camera-equipped vans around a handful of American cities earlier this year, but news of the effort immediately sparked our curiosity: What’s the Cupertino company up to? Will we see a self-driving Apple car in the future?

As cool as that sounds, our bet was on a more likely answer: That Apple plans to revamp Maps with its own 3D maps and street views in an effort to compete with Google. According to a new report from 9to5Mac, that’s exactly what the company is up to. Apple has been acquiring companies and doing doing under-the-radar mapping work to build out its own map database by 2017.

Perhaps more importantly, the new invoice format includes a description of what device the purchase originated from, which...

Wood Chips: Electronics May Go Back to Nature


"Wood chips" takes on new meaning with a new green technology, cellulose nanofibril, or CNF, developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Products Laboratory and detailed in a research paper published this week. The "chips" in question are indeed made mostly of wood -- but they are also computer chips. As of 2007, about 3.2 million tons of electronic waste was being generated each year, the researchers noted.

Should ad blockers be legal?

Fortune:

Do you like the idea of an internet without advertising? You can join the soaring ranks of people who install ad blocking software to scrub out banners, pop-ups, and more. But not everyone will be happy about that.

A report this week by media analyst Frederic Filloux warned that web publishers face a crisis as ad block rates shoot up, and consequently block an important means of revenue for online publishers. Between 15 to 17% of the U.S. population reportedly use ad blockers, and the number is double that for millennials. The numbers are even higher in Europe, and up to 80-90% in the case of specialty tech and gaming sites.

The popularity of ad blockers is understandable: For consumers they make web pages look nicer, and they can improve browser speed and screen for malware too.

Of course they should be legal. What should be illegal is poorly coded sites and ads that encourage so many people to use ad blockers.

Documentary photographer Doug Menuez was given the rare opportunity by Steve Jobs himself to document what was happening inside NeXT, the computer platform development company Jobs created after being ousted from Apple in 1985. From there, Doug spent the next three years observing Jobs build a company from the ground up.

“He wasn’t a positive manager a lot of the times, but he was a great teacher.”

Leaving aside my issues with the poorly written headline, this is the guy who shot some of the most iconic images of Steve Jobs. His comments in general and on Jobs in particular are very interesting and well worth the read.

Where to go for computer tech support

Consumer Reports:

If you want an army of geeks you can count on to tame an unruly computer, you’d better buy a Macintosh: Apple tech support is by far the most effective of any computer brand’s. With most Windows PCs, there’s only a 50-50 chance that a manufacturer’s tech support will do the trick.

It’s no surprise that Apple had the highest score for overall user satisfaction. In fact, the company has been top-rated every year since we first asked consumers about tech support back in 2007—even though Apple provides just 90 days of free phone and online tech support, compared with one year for most Windows PC companies.

If you’ve been around for any length of time, it’s easy to find/tell horror stories about poor Apple tech support but, at least in the past ten years, my experience with them, whether online, on the phone or in the Apple Stores, has been uniformly positive. I used to work in tech support and it’s a thankless, hard job. But Apple doesn’t treat...

Siri saves the day when a bug locks you out of Messages.

Siri to the rescue! According to a new support document Apple added on Thursday, the best way to regain access to your messages is by asking Siri to do it for you. First, ask her to read your unread messages, then have her reply to the offending message. Your reply can be anything at all—the fix is actually sending the message. That will let you back into Messages, where you can swipe left to delete the thread.

The fundraiser works to address the larger issue of why only 20 percent of software engineers are female and why that percentage is even lower among mobile app developers.

The same is true of technology classes in schools, wherein there are few opportunities for girls to explore high-tech fields that aren’t already dominated by males.

In case you missed it, Google launched a new mobile payment service at its annual I/O developers conference Thursday. It’s called Android Pay. But didn’t Google already have a mobile payment service? Yes, yes, Google Wallet. That’s not going away—in fact, it’s getting a reboot as a peer-to-peer payment service—but Android Pay works a lot more like Apple Pay than Google’s last attempt.

That’s a good thing. Google Wallet required you to wake your phone, open the Wallet app, and enter a pin number if you decided to protect the app with a passcode, all before waving your phone near the payment terminal. That’s a lot of work.

"We knew we could do a great job on this, and develop something that our customers would expect for the Mac platform."

Apple's inclusion of VoiceOver reflects the company's commitment to ensuring every one of its users can access its products, regardless of their accessibility needs.

As a long-time user of the Mac and someone who now depends on Screen Access Technology, I can speak first-hand to VoiceOver's effectiveness. The software has become the primary way I access all of my daily computing tasks.

Apple has issued a workaround for the recent Messages bug, which causes iPhones to reboot and Messages to repeatedly crash after a specific, strange string of unicode characters is received via text. In an official support document, Apple recommends using Siri to re-open the Messages app. Users are instructed to ask Siri to “read unread messages,” then to reply to the malicious message. Messages should then be able to open again, and users…

Sharing files between a Mac 512Ke and an Apple Watch

OK, it's not really syncing, but this little hack by Niles Mitchell is still a lot of fun. What Niles did is to take his vintage Mac 512Ke, get it talking to a PowerBook G3 "Wall Street" as a networking go-between, and then set up an action using Workflow on the Watch to go to the URL of an image stored on a floppy disk connected to that old Mac. The result? The Watch grabs the file off of the floppy and it appears on the display of the smartwatch. Cool!

Practical? No, not really. But it is amazing to me that Apple's latest device can talk to a 30-year-old Mac and actually do something. Enjoy the video, and visit Niles' website for more vintage Mac fun

Apple dropped the ball on photos. Big time.

For years, Apple products were my default photo locker, gallery, and sharing tool. Now I’ve switched to Google, but only because Apple forced my hand. My workflow was simple: shoot photos on my iPhone and dSLR, sync everything to Aperture and share from there.

Here’s a brief timeline on how Apple went off the rails with photos:

Another app called Photos

The first is Google Photos, a free app that was described as Gmail for your photo collection. That is, you get unlimited free storage, and the app has machine learning and image recognition technology to help you find the photos you’re looking for, even if you didn’t meticulously tag and sort them yourself. Just dump everything in and search for specific people, places, and even things. Photos can find every image you’ve taken of a beach, or just the photos you...

Throwback Thursday: The "personal organizer...

Back before the Newton MessagePad made a splash in 1993 as the first "Personal Digital Assistant", several consumer electronics companies were making handheld devices designed to do all of the things that we take for granted now on our iPhones and Apple Watches -- take short notes, check our calendar, make appointments, and look up phone numbers. One of these devices was the Casio B.O.S.S. SF-8000 -- one of which I have in my Museum of Obsolete Technology. 

B.O.S.S. stood for "Business Organizer Scheduling System." This device came out in 1990 at a price tag of about $260 (equivalent to about $480 now). It had a real keyboard rather than the flimsy membrane keyboards used by some other organizers. The display was a 32-character by 6 line LCD, the contrast of which could be adjusted with a small thumbwheel. The picture below is taken from eBay, where you can still find these devices available for sale.

So how much storage did this device have? A whopping 64K! The...
