Rumor: Apple to debut 4K iMac in mid-October, will...

Current rumors are pointing towards new iMacs and the unicorn of current technology, the iPad Pro, over the next week and next month.

Recent reports indicate that Apple will be introducing an updated 2015 iMac next week. The models could arrive in the stores as early as October 13th, albeit supplies may be somewhat limited until production ramps up in November.

The 21.5-inch iMac will have a resolution of 4096 x 2304. Code discovered in OS X El Capitan has pointed towards Broadwell chips with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 and AMD Radeon M380 – M395X discrete graphics for the new iMacs.

The current rumors suggest that the new 21.5-inch...

Twelve South’s new BookArc for MacBook sports...

Twelve South’s family of BookArc stands for MacBooks are perhaps its best-known products, having debuted alongside the company back in 2009. Today, BookArc received a substantial redesign in the form of BookArc for MacBook ($50), which now is sized to properly support every current-generation MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro from 11.6″ to 15″. Interchangeable silicone inserts promise that the new BookArc “will be the perfect home for your current (and future) MacBook for years to come.”

The new BookArc is made from bead-blasted silver aluminum that matches the looks of most MacBooks, with a polished chamfered edge mimicking the design cue Apple introduced in iPhones, iPads,...

Meet Beats Pill+, the first Beats speaker made under...

Apple’s influence on Beats hasn’t been seen in the audio company’s products since last summer’s acquisition, until now. Beats is getting ready to release a brand new Bluetooth speaker that has Apple written all over it (metaphorically, of course—the signature Beats logo still speaks loud and clear).

The Beats Pill+ is the first speaker produced under Apple, and it shows, according to The Verge. The $229 speaker still looks like a pill, but it comes in a simplified black or white, topped with four buttons and compatible with Apple’s Lightning chargers. The Verge notes that the Pill+ has a 12-hour battery life and will ship alongside a Pill+ app for iOS and Android that will let people sync their devices to the speaker or link one Pill+ to another.

Microsoft debuts Surface Book hybrid, could give the...

Microsoft has come a long way with its Surface tablet.

The Surface Book, which debuted earlier this week, is built more like a traditional notebook and a recent New York press event showed the unit appearing like a variant of the classic 13-inch white MacBook made of metal, not polycarbonate plastic.

The hinge is unique in that it’s based around a “dynamic fulcrum” design that moves smoothly without much effort.

The Surface Book features a glass touchpad with multitouch as well as backlit keys that are quiet and comfortable.

The big surprise here is that the screen pops off, making this a notebook-first hybrid, rather than...

QuickPark: A remedy for parking tickets, available...

Regardless of what I said about Shazam on the Apple Watch, there may not be a "killer app" for the wearable platform yet. But if you take Shazam, some of the health apps, fun apps like Swarm for Watch and the new QuickPark for iPhone and Apple Watch (free) and lump 'em all together, you have a bunch of apps that make the "need" for an Apple Watch very compelling. 

QuickPark does two things very well: it remembers where you parked your car and it reminds you of when your parking meter (if you're parked at one) is expiring. Between those two functions, you should keep yourself from walking around in circles trying to remember where the heck the car is and getting parking tickets when you show up at the car just after the meter attendant slips a ticket onto your...

How to Enable Wi-Fi Calling on Your iPhone

Now that AT&T says it can flip the switch and give iPhone owners Wi-Fi calling, we need to turn it on in our phones. That's easy to do, and assuming AT&T has enabled Wi-Fi calling in your area, lets you use broadband Wi-Fi connections whenever you have a weak cell signal. Read on to see how to turn it on.

AT&T gets a Green Light to Enable Wi-Fi Calling

AT&T customers who still rely on a MicroCell for reliable iPhone connections on calls (like me) are a step closer to getting Wi-Fi calling support. The FCC approved AT&T's waiver request, which means the carrier can start rolling out the feature nation-wide.

The Mac Observer Spin: The days of needing an AT&T MicroCell look like they're coming to an end. It's kind of funny that AT&T is using its own FCC waiver approval for Wi-Fi calling to slam T-Mobile and Sprint for failing to apply for theirs.

DDoS Attacks Create Smokescreens for Larceny

Distributed denial of service attacks have evolved from protest tool to criminal weapon.
More than one in three DDoS attacks are used to plant malware or a virus on company systems, and 40 percent of them result in data theft, according to NeuStar's semiannual DDoS attack and protection report released last week. "Until two years ago, DDoS attacks were really seen as just a disruption and annoyance tool," said NeuStar Senior Security Manager Joe Loveless. "There's more purpose behind the attacks now than simply to be disruptive."

C'mon, Apple, update iMovie for El Capitan (and...

Apple has released an update of iMovie for iOS devices that can edit 4K video, which the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus can record. However, iMovie for OS X El Capitan hasn't received a similar upgrade. Also, what's (not) up with all of Apple's iWork apps?

Sure, it's nice to be able to edit 4K videos on the iPhone and iPad. Still, I suspect more folks do their video editing on the Mac. Perhaps Apple hopes those who wish to edit 4K video in Mac OS X will spring for the US$299.99 Final Cut Pro X app; however, feature parity between the iOS and OS X movies of iMovie would be extremely useful. 

As for the iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, and Numbers), they need an upgrade. As Dan Moren pointed out in a Macworld editorial, none of the iOS...

You can use Spotlight to find out the local weather — or the weather conditions in another city. Type in "Weather in [location]." For instance, if I want to find the weather in my location, I'd type in Weather in Nashville, TN."

You can find online videos. Type in "[name of] video" in Spotlight.

(credit: 401(K) 2012)

More than any other American company, Apple holds $181.1 billion in offshore accounts, according to a Tuesday report released by Citizens for Tax Justice, an advocacy group.

Other major American tech firms—including Cisco, Google, Hewlett-Packard, and Oracle—are among the largest companies that are using legal but questionable tax tricks to keep money overseas and effectively pay little to no American federal corporate taxes.

Citizens for Tax Justice concluded: "Multinational corporations’ use of tax havens allows them to avoid an estimated $90 billion in federal income taxes each year."

Mementum an easy-to-use voice recorder for Mac OS

If you need to record and edit voice memos on your Mac, there's no easier tool for doing so than Mementum (US$4.99) from AllGoritm. It lets you record vocal memos, then sort your recordings by categories. You can also write accompanying text notes. With version 1.1 it adds new keyboard shortcuts and interface improvements.

Wall Street Journal Review of Google Now on Tap in...

I've been extolling the virtues of Google Now for a couple of years-it's Android's best feature; it's Google giving back something from pillaging our digital lives for profit; and it's a feature Apple will have a hard time matching because the iOS maker doesn't make us the product. Apple narrowed the gap with iOS 9 and Proactive, but Google is still ahead in this one area. The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern has spent a week with a pre-release version of Android Marshmallow, the next major update to Android, and she wrote extensively about how Google Now gets even better with Google Now on Tap. Marshmallow will take forever and a day to propagate out to users (Lollipop is even now only at 23.5 percent of Android users who use Google Play), but for those who get it, it seems like a solid mobile operating system. Her review is a good read.

Disney Artists Tweet and Periscope about Apple’s New...

Apple is doing a little iPad Pro pre-release reach out to artists at Pixar and Disney, and project manager Paul Hildebrandt at Disney tweeted a photo showing some of his team playing with the device (via iMore). Jeff Ranjo, a Disney artist posted a video to Periscope of his hands-on time with the device and Apple Pencil, the stylus designed to go with iPad Pro. Listening to Mr. Ranjo talk about the two devices, I can't help but feel iPad Pro is going to have a major impact on the world of graphic design, animation, and art, regardless of its uses in other applications and disciplines.

Apple brought in some cool new toys. If I could get the artists to put them down then I could get a turn.

Porsche picks CarPlay for new 2017 911 Carrera/...

Yeah, this is a 2016 model. But it's the Lava Orange color I want. Thank you.

The latest generation of Porsche's iconic 911 Carrera and Carrera S will be supporting only one infotainment system -- Apple's CarPlay. The carmaker could have done what so many other manufacturers are doing, giving auto buyers a choice between CarPlay and Google's Android Auto. But Porsche decided against it, according to Motor Trend, because of Google's tendency to gather too much data for nefarious uses.

Google wants any car manufacturer that uses Android Auto to agree to hand over information from the onboard diagnostic unit (AKA OBD2) relating to vehicle speed, throttle position, coolant and oil temperature, engine RPM and more. CarPlay only wants to know if a vehicle is in motion. 

Motor Trend wonders if Google is using that data collection to grab intelligence...

While complex alphanumeric passwords have been available in iOS for years, most users found them to be too much trouble, so Apple reasoned that going from a four to a six-digit passcode was a more sensible compromise for improving security,…

This is the third straight year of a boomBOTTLE release from the company, following 2013's original boomBottle and last year's smaller boomBOTTLE H20. As one might imagine, the new "+" in the speaker's name denotes Scosche's move in the opposite direction — this is the tallest boomBOTTLE yet. The new boomBOTTLE+ comes with dual 50mm drivers and a passive subwoofer. The Bluetooth speaker comes with a micro-USB cable, small strap, carabiner clip, and a 2.4A wall charger. boomBOTTLE+ comes in three different colors.{/exp:char_limit}

Design-wise, these new models will be very similar to the non-4K iMacs, but will boast a 4096x2304 screen resolution. This exact screen resolution was first spotted in El Capitan Developer...

Apple planning to launch new 4K 21.5-inch iMac next...

With September’s iPhone release in the rearview and the iPad Pro set for an early November launch, Apple is ready to add some new Mac hardware into its fall product line. Apple is currently planning to announce new 21.5-inch iMacs with 4K screens next week, according to multiple reliable sources. While the new computers are likely ready to begin showing up in stores as soon as Tuesday, October 13th, Apple will ramp up larger quantities for November, according to the sources, so finding one early on may be a slight challenge.

The new 4K iMacs will physically look like the current non-4K version, so the highlights of the upgrade will be the new 4096 x 2304 screen and much faster...

News: Apple releases fourth iOS 9.1 beta, third tvOS...

Less than a week after the last iOS 9.1 beta release, Apple has now released a fourth beta of iOS 9.1 to developers. iOS 9.1 appears to be primarily focused on adding developer-level support for features such as 3D Touch and Live Photos on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, with this latest beta focusing on fixing a number of issues from prior betas. Registered iOS developers can download the iOS 9.1 beta from Apple’s Developer site; a public version…

Rock Jaw Alfa Review: Replace your EarPods with...

The Rock Jaw Alfa Genus V2 headphones ($49.90) are not especially meant as a replacement for EarPods, but that’s how I see them. Apple’s bundled EarPods have a lot of positives. They are ‘cheap’, lightweight and small. You can chuck them in a bag or pocket without worrying too much. This is in stark contrast to Beats on-ear and over-ear headphones, for example, which are expensive, bulky and heavy. However, EarPods leave much to be desired in regard to sound quality.

It turns out the Rock Jaw Alfa’s fill this gap nicely. They have the same portability as EarPods but with a focus on also providing great sound to listen to. They aren’t...

Adobe Lays Out a Feast at Its MAX Picnic

Adobe raised the curtain on two mobile apps and a basket of product upgrades at its MAX conference in Los Angeles. Both new apps -- Photoshop Fix and Capture CC -- are free, but they initially will be available only to users of Apple's mobile devices. Photoshop Fix includes some commonly used Photoshop features -- exposure, contrast and saturation control, as well as object and blemish removal. It also has a tool for altering parts of a face. For example, you can widen eyes, suggest a smile, or perform a virtual rhinoplasty on a visage.

Philips announces Hue Bridge 2.0 lights with HomeKit...

This definitely smacks of the nifty.

Philips on Monday announced its first HomeKit-enabled product, the Hue Bridge 2.0, an updated version of its original Hue Bridge. With the Hue Bridge 2.0, its line of Philips Hue lights are able to work with Apple’s home automation platform, allowing all existing and future Hue bulbs to be controlled with Siri voice commands.

Spoken commands like “Turn lights red” can be used for specific colors, while commands like “Set the lamp to 30 percent” can be used for dimming. While users have long been able to use the Philips Hue app to set custom light sequences, these commands can now be spoken via Siri as well as control an...

Apple fixes app slicing issue with iOS 9.0.2 update...

Well, there’s good news if you’re developing iOS apps.

Apple has just announced that its app slicing issue has been fixed. This will allow for device-specific versions of apps to be delivered when downloaded by users running iOS 9.0.2 or later.

For those of you unfamiliar with app slicing, this is a delivery method that allows for the optimal installation of an iOS or watchOS app to be delivered to a user’s particular device, with minimal footprint. This optimization, called app thinning, lets developers create apps that use the most device features, occupy minimum disk space, and accommodate future updates that...

Twitter makes current events easier to follow with...

After months of floundering to find a new CEO and shore up its user base, Twitter is having the best week ever. First, the publishing platform confirmed that cofounder Jack Dorsey is retaking the helm as CEO of the company he created. Now Twitter is officially rolling out a feature that will make it much easier for people to find the best and most important tweets of the day without having to hunt for them.

The new tool is called Moments, and it will be easily accessible in a new tab on Twitter for iOS, Android, and the web. Rolling out today for U.S. Twitter users, Moments will offer a curated list of current events in a variety of categories—news, sports, entertainment, etc.—and let you tap through to see more information about the moment and the most relevant tweets about it. Those tweets can be text only, or they can include GIFs, videos, photos, and Vines. Each Moment will include...

Google’s Fall Event Echos Apple’s Event

Google and Apple, once very different, are more alike every day.

Microsoft acknowledges crashes under OS X 10.11 El...

The good news is that Microsoft has acknowledged the massive crashes between Office for Mac 2016 and the newly-released OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

The bad news is that they don’t have an estimated timeline for a fix.

In an emailed statement, a Microsoft spokeswoman said the company is looking into the problem.

“We know that some users may be experiencing issues with Office 2016 for Mac running on El Capitan,” the statement read. “We are actively investigating the matter with Apple. Until there is a fix, we recommend people install the latest updates to Office 2016 for Mac using Microsoft AutoUpdate.”

OS X 10.11 El Capitan was...

LEGO Doctor Who Available in December

If you've ever asked "Why can't I buy a LEGO Doctor Who TARDIS," now you have the answer: Because it isn't December yet. LEGO's first ever Doctor Who set, spawned from a LEGO Ideas submission, goes on sale December 1st. The US$59.99 kit includes the TARDIS exterior and control room, 11th and 12th Doctor minifigures, Clara minifigure, a weeping angel, and two Daleks. LEGO has licensing rights for Doctor Who, so it's a safe bet we'll see more kits with other Doctors in the future. Or maybe the past. Time is so wibbly wobbly.

Apple Buys AI Company Perceptio

Apple snatched up another company to help make our iPhones smarter. This time it's Perceptio, a company that's been working on advanced artificial intelligence systems capable of running on smartphones without relying as much on remote servers for data processing.

The Mac Observer Spin: Google Now can do a lot more than Apple's Proactive to anticipate our needs. Combining Perceptio and Vocal IQ tech, however, could help turn our iPhones into powerful assistants in our pockets. It's pretty clear Apple wants to outdo Google Now and maintain our privacy at the same time.

Why is there no News app for El Capitan?

iOS 9 added a News app (think of it as Apple's version of Flipbook and Zite). A companion app for Mac OS X El Capitan would seem like a natural, but it's nowhere to be found. 

In iOS 9, News compiles articles you've expressed interest in from several sites.  Stories are pulled from a range of sources, from top news organizations to indie publications. Stories are chosen for you based on what you like to read. Apple says that the more you use News, the better it gets at picking out just what you’ll want to see. 

You can share articles with others and save them to read later. Thanks to iCloud, stories are saved on all your iOS devices, so you can start reading something on your iPhone and pick it up later on your iPad. It would be nice to also be able to do this with a Mac.

You can set up News to provide a continuously updated feed of stories that are collected based on your likes and...
