Review: SanDisk Dual USB Drive connects with the 12-...

Cloud syncing services like Dropbox and iCloud Drive connect most of our devices nowadays, and AirDrop offers fast data transfer between Macs for smaller files… when it works. Physically moving files from one machine to another using a drive in the middle, or sneakernet, remains the most reliable way to quickly move files between Macs for many. Without a proper adapter, Apple’s 12-inch MacBook doesn’t fit into this workflow though. That’s where SanDisk’s Dual USB Drive (Reg. $49.99, Best Buy $39.99) comes into play.

Dual USB Drive conveniently works with both USB-C MacBooks and traditional USB ports on other Macs or PCs, all in a tiny package with plenty of storage…

Simple geometric banners depicting iOS, OS X and ‘...

MacStories’ Federico Viticci has posted an interesting image of WWDC banners from the second-floor of Moscone West, the WWDC event venue.

These images show Apple highlighting its three platforms: iOS, OS X and watchOS. These banners do not follow the same pattern as previous years with dramatic photography in rectangular banners. These are more like full-height wall posters with simpler geometric logos. Each image has the name of Apple’s OS written in a light font-face (the image is not clear enough to see whether this is Sans Francisco) on a simple background of multicoloured translucent shapes.

What’s particularly striking about this photo is that it confirms a rebranding of Apple’s smartwatch operating system. On Apple’s current public marketing, the Apple Watch is described as running ‘Watch OS’. By these...

Apple Music and the Terrible Return of DRM

An anonymous reader writes: Apple's rumored music streaming service looks set to materialize soon, and a lot of people are talking about how good it might be. But Nilay Patel is looking at the other side — if the service fits with Apple's typical mode of operation, it'll only work with other Apple products. "That means I'll have yet a fourth music service in my life (Spotify, Google Play Music, Prime, and Apple Music) and a fourth set of content exclusives and pricing windows to think about instead of just listening to music." He points out Steve Jobs's 2007 essay on the state of digital music and notes that Jobs seemed to feel DRM was a waste of time — something forced on Apple by the labels. "But it's no longer the labels pushing DRM on the music services; it's the services themselves, because locking you into a single ecosystem guarantees you'll keep paying their monthly subscription fees and hopefully buy into the rest of their ecosystem. ... Apple Music might be available on...

Apple may change its 30/70 revenue split for media...

The Financial Times reported on Friday that Apple is in talks with media companies to revise the traditional, across-the-board 30/70 revenue split that Apple imposes on sales of media within its ecosystem.

For the last decade, Apple has taken 30% of the revenue that app developers, publishers, and subscription services make on iOS. But sources told the Financial Times that Apple is considering taking less than that on content purchases, especially through Apple TV and Newsstand. App store terms will remain the same for developers, but media subscription services like Hulu and HBO Now, as well as publishers like Time, The New York Times, and Conde Nast, could stand to benefit. (Disclosure: Ars Technica is owned by Conde Nast).

This week, we're giving you a look at two of the office cats at design house and accessory manufacturer DistilUnion, Pemba and Louie. Here's what one of their human office mates, Lindsay Windham, had to say about the feline co-workers:

“So, here’s one of DJ Pemba taking control of the iPod classic on our “vintage” Apple HiFi. This beauty is still our all-time favorite looking speaker, and we’ve kept it fresh by connecting it to the Apple AirPort so we can stream tunes from our iMacs. It’s a musical Apple paradise, basically.

And have I updated you: we now have gray Wally Cases?! It’s my favorite leather so far (and not just because they match the studio kittens – modeled here by Louie.”

Given the widespread adoption of Bluetooth wireless for in-car telephone calling and music streaming, it would be easy to write off Lightning connector-equipped car accessories as… decreasingly important. Any recent car with Bluetooth audio probably also has a USB port built in for Apple device charging and audio output, letting many people integrate iPhones, iPods, or iPads with cars using nothing more than a budget Lightning-to-USB cable.

But that’s not true for everyone. At CES in January, Griffin showed two new car accessories designed to help Apple users whose cars lack USB ports and Bluetooth. iTrip Bluetooth (aka iTrip Bluetooth Aux) hit stores a couple...

Apple Pay launched in October with high expectations and two core challenges: The limited number of people who can use it by virtue of which iPhone model they own, and the limited number of stores that accept the service. Apple has touted stats like this one: Apple Pay accounts for $2 of every $3 spent using contactless payments. It certainly sounds impressive. But Reuters surveyed 98 of the nation’s top 100 retailers (the remaining two sell online only) to find out just what those companies think of Apple Pay, and whether the service will ever gain widespread acceptance.

comScore today has released its latest data regarding smartphone market share. The analytics firm says that 188.6 million people owned a smartphone during a three-month period ending in April.

The company saw a 1.8 percent increase in market share this time around, going from 41.3 percent in January to 43.1 percent in April.

Of the top 5, LG is the only other manufacturer to see an increase, rising from 8 percent to 8.4 percent. Samsung, Motorola, and HTC all three saw a decline in market share. Samsung, still ranked number two, fell from 29.3 percent to 28.6...

Subsidized AT&T iPhone no longer available...

Since the days of the first iPhone in 2007, Apple has sold the smartphone -- set up for AT&T service ---- as a subsidized purchase. In other words, you'd buy your iPhone for a discounted price with a 2-year AT&T contract, say $199 or $299, as opposed to $599 and $699 for a non-subsidized phone. Well, it appears that those days are over. Last night, Apple removed the option of purchasing a new iPhone on a two-year contract with AT&T from the online Apple Store. Instead, all purchases are now done with AT&T's Next plan using a monthly fee.

On the plus side, the Next plan makes it much more simple for iPhone fans to move to the newest model at the end of 12, 18 ,or 24 months by bundling the unsubsidized price of the phone with a service plan and then splitting that cost into a monthly fee. There's also no required down payment.

The pricing for a 16 GB iPhone 6 starts at $21.64 per month without a voice and data plan, while the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus starts...

Apple is planning to alter its pricing formula for subscriptions in a major change that will benefit subscription-based apps and services like Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, and more, reports Financial Times. Apple is said to be considering changing the 30 percent fee that it currently charges and is discussing new commercial terms with media companies.

At the current point in time, all apps and in-app subscriptions work on a 30/70 split. Apple gets 30 percent of what's paid for an app or service, while the company or developer offering the app gets a 70 percent cut. That means when someone purchases Netflix through the Netflix iOS app, Apple gets over $2 of the fee paid. At the same time, Apple has disallowed direct links to outside subscription sign up services within apps, ensuring it gets its fee.

Review: Incase’s DSLR Sling and Pro Packs are...

Eventually, pocket-sized cameras will compare in low-light performance to today’s large and expensive DSLRs. Although pro photographers will have moved on by then to even more powerful large cameras, the vast majority of people will see no need to carry big, heavy lenses and camera bodies around. The iPhone’s ascendance demonstrates that “eventually” is at least foreseeable, even though it’s not happening in the near term.

Serious photographers won’t be giving up their DSLRs any time soon, and in fact will be toting plenty of camera hardware — many times, along with a laptop — to any event or destination important enough to photograph properly. Over the years, I’ve learned that the “ideal bag” for my personal needs is one that can hold my camera, several lenses, and whichever MacBook I’m using. Having hunted for the ultimate carrying solution for both computer and photo gear, the best solutions I’ve found are made by Incase.

Your iPhone and iPad need power, and recent devices are equipped with the handy slimline Lightning adapter. When you get a new iOS device, it comes with the standard Apple Lightning cable and an AC adapter. But cables get lost or broken, so chances are quite good that eventually a replacement cable will be needed. Today I'm taking a look at two Lightning power accessories: the Tylt Ribbn 4.8A Car Charger (US$49.99) and the Scosche FlatOUT LED charge/sync cable ($19.99). Both of these accessories have one thing in common -- flat MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad) compliant cables.

Tylt Ribbn

The Ribbn might be pricy for a car charger and cable, but it has two things going for it -- first, a 3-foot (1 meter) flat ribbon cable is almost impossible to tangle and second, the ability to provide 4.8 Amps of current allows for fast charging...

Ahead of the introduction of Apple's new streaming music platform, Financial Times has shared some key details about the service, confirming it will be called simply "Apple Music." With the launch of the service, Apple will be largely abandoning its iTunes branding, using the name only for the online store.

As has been previously shared, Apple will not be offering a freemium ad-supported listening tier like Spotify, and will charge $9.99 per month for the service. Apple plans to draw customers in by offering a three-month free trial, much longer than the 30 days competing services offer.

A new report by the Financial Times suggests that Apple is looking to change the 70/30 revenue share for certain types of App Store apps. The report claims that Apple wants to change the way revenue is distributed between developers and Apple for music, video and news apps.

The report is a bit circumspect as the timing of the change does not seem to be related to any particular incident, although potentially Apple is forced into cutting the share due to potential anticompetitive complaints with Apple Music, to be announced next week.

Developers hoping to make more money...

Watch these fabulous flying rays

BBC:

Closely related to sharks but with long, flat bodies and wing-like pectoral fins, they are ideally suited to swooping through the water yet seem equally at home in the air, so much so that they have earned the name “flying rays”.

Mobula rays can reach heights of more than two metres (6ft 6ins), remaining airborne for several seconds, but their landings are much less graceful, creating a loud bang as they belly-flop back into the sea.

The video on this page is spectacular. I’d love to go scuba diving with this group but I’d be afraid of a 5.2 m (17 ft), 2,000 lbs ray landing on me.

Apple Pay survey finds many retailers still...

Apple has invested a lot into its Apple Pay mobile payments solution since its launch last fall. Since launching in October, the payment method is already accepted at more than 700,000 retail locations, according to the company. Reuters today has published a new report in which Apple says that Apple Pay will be accepted by half of the top 100 merchants in the United States by the end of this year, with more planned in 2016. Currently, a fourth of the top 100 retailers support Apple Pay.

According to a retailer that Reuters contacted, Apple has been pushing its mobile payment service aggressively to retailers. The retailer, which remained anonymous and has no plans to accept Apple Pay, said this:

“They have been pushing hard and it’s been that way for months. They have called and tried to persuade us even after...

Skype for Web Beta now open to US, UK users

Skype is an extremely popular way for people around the globe to connect to each other through messaging, audio calls, and video calls. But up until now, the service has always required a standalone application on your Mac. Back in March, Microsoft opened a beta of a web-based Skype service to a small number of users; now that beta has been opened to anyone in the US and UK.

To use Skype for Web Beta, users must either have a Skype account or sign up for one. The only software on your favorite Mac will be your browser (Safari, Chrome or Firefox are all supported) and a small browser plug-in. Pointing your browser to http://web.skype.com walks users through the setup process, after which they're ready to call friends and family around the world.

The experience of using Skype for Web Beta is surprisingly similar to that for the full-on Mac application, and I found it to work quite well for both video and audio calls...

Working through the National Retail Federation's top 100 United States merchants, of which Apple said "about half" would begin to accept Apple Pay this year, Reuters found the company's predictions may be "too optimistic," with many retailers remaining skeptical about Apple Pay.Since then, the company...

On Monday, June 8 beginning at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET, Apple executives will be taking to the stage at Moscone West in San Francisco to launch the 2015 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). We'll be providing coverage of all of the announcements as they happen through a Google Hangout, but today we're providing you with an idea of what we think will be the top items of discussion. 

Mac OS X 10.11

OS X 10.11 is expected to focus on system-level improvements that'll increase the stability of the Mac-based operating system. One area of improvement outside of performance tweaks may be Control Center, which could be overhauled with Bluetooth, WiFi and Do Not Disturb controls similar to iOS. 

iOS 9

Similar to OS X 10.11, iOS 9 also is expected to bring under-the-hood improvements for performance and stability purposes. Apple will likely continue its focus on smarter...

Apple Store No Longer Sells iPhone With 2-Year...

Apple overnight removed the option to purchase a new iPhone on a two-year contract with AT&T on the Apple Online Store, eliminating the ability for customers to purchase an iPhone for a subsidized price of $199 or $299 through the carrier. Apple now sells iPhones on AT&T exclusively through the AT&T Next carrier financing program, while two-year contracts remain available through Verizon and Sprint.

AT&T Next allows a customer to purchase a new iPhone for $0 down and make equal payments for 12, 18 or 24 months until the full price of the smartphone has been paid, at which point the device can be traded in for a new iPhone. The full price breakdown for each iPhone model on AT&T Next, available through both the Apple Online Store and Apple Retail Store, is listed below.

iPhone 6

Semi-autonomous features like adaptive cruise control (ACC) and traffic jam assist (TJA) represent early real-world tests for human-machine interaction (HMI).  At their best, when operated correctly in proper conditions, ACC and TJA completely control all acceleration, braking, and steering, removing some of the cognitive load from the driver.  From an HMI perspective, this presents the challenge of how to convey control and status information on a number of different subsystems, in an immediately clear and meaningful way to users.

Days before Apple is expected to announce its rebranded and revamped version of Beats Music at WWDC, the Cupertino company is still negotiating terms with music labels, reports Bloomberg. Last month, it was also reported that the two sides had not reached a deal.

The labels are pushing to get a larger chunk of revenue than they receive under their current deals with Spotify Ltd., a competing streaming service, people familiar with the negotiations said. Both sides want to complete a deal before Apple’s June 8 annual event in San Francisco for more than 5,000 developers, according to the people, who asked not to be named because the talks are continuing.Currently, labels receive 55% of Spotify's $9.99 monthly rate while publishers take 15%....

ConnochaetOS is a nice entry into a pure, free Linux experience. Most people mistakenly equate open source with "free," as in pay nothing. Experienced Linux users know, however, that the open source concept separates the price of the software from the cost of obtaining enterprise-level modifications and support. The notion of "free" does not mean there's no cost to get it. Open source licenses prevent anyone from selling or owning the code. They allow the software to be used, modified and shared under defined terms and conditions.

In a letter received by the leaders of AltConf, it was revealed that Apple is cracking down on the live streaming of its WWDC video content at events other than its own. AltConf, which is a community-based developer conference being held in San Francisco the same week as WWDC, had planned to stream content from WWDC in its Viewing Room, but received a letter from an Apple legal representative which demanded that AltConf cease all plans to stream Apple content.

This firm represents Apple Inc. (“Apple”) in certain matters. Apple has recently learned that AltConf 2015 (“AltConf”) is promoting its intent to stream live content from Apple’s WWDC events, including the Keynote address, and is charging $300 for guaranteed spots in the viewing area for the live streams.

The first ad features the Galaxy S6 Edge and focuses on how the curved display of the device is “useful.” Samsung touts that the S6 Edge lights up on the side when someone calls, while the iPhone 6 simply vibrates. Because a strobing light is definitely more useful than a vibration…

The ad also mentions how the side of the Galaxy S6 Edge is useful for viewing notifications and other content, while the side of the iPhone 6 is simply home to the volume buttons and mute switch.

Next-gen Apple TV won’t surface at WWDC, not ready...

It looks like Apple won’t be unveiling a next-gen Apple TV at WWDC this year.

In spite of copious rumors that Apple would introduce an updated set-top box, it seems as if the device isn’t ready yet. The New York Times’ Brian X. Chen writes that Apple has postponed its plans because the product is “not ready for prime time.”

The event was rumored to show off new Apple TV hardware, including an improved remote control and a tool kit for developers to use to make apps with. But those plans were postponed partly because the product was not ready for prime time, according to two people briefed on the product.

Apple has not introduced a new version of...

One way to be autopkging the Jenkins

Picking up where we left off with Jenkins, let’s look at one possible workflow to get autopkg projects working. Specifically when paired with Munki, this requires a bit more thought, but the Jenkins ‘workspace’ model and sane use of variables allows us to make one all-purpose script for most contingencies we’d deal with. As those that have been following my saga trying to support the Lync recipe may be aware, upstream ahem changes (read: drunken interns wildin’ out on the XML) can cause recipes to fail. If you’re used to running autopkg with the list verb, and one recipe succeeds before another fails in a new and exciting way that isn’t yet caught by error-handling, you could have products that already were pushed to the munki repo but the MakeCatalogs recipe never ran. Since the catalog isn’t rebuilt, this leads to the dreaded __1 naming getting appended to the product… without it actually being available to customers.

One way to remove points of failure is to...
