Apple’s Tim Cook has been very public about his stance on gay rights.

Eyefi Review: Hands-On With the Mobi Pro 32GB WiFi-Connec...

Today, 07:13 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Popular WiFi-connected SD card manufacturer <a href="http://www.eyefi.com....com">Eyefi</a>recently released a brand new product, the <a href="http://www.eyefi.com/go/mobipro">Eyefi Mobi Pro</a>. For those unfamiliar with Eyefi, the company makes WiFi-connected SD cards to give people a way to quickly transfer photos from their cameras to their Macs, iPhones, and iPads, even when a WiFi network is unavailable. <br/> <br/> The company's newest card, the Eyefi Mobi Pro offers 32GB of storage, support for RAW file transfers, and a wireless transfer feature that lets users selectively choose which photos to upload. When used on a home WiFi network, the Mobi Pro lets users transfer images at high speeds, but when away from home, it creates its own WiFi hotspot, so it's always possible to get pictures from the SD card to an iPad, iPhone, or Mac. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefiincamera-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443684" /> <br/> <em>MacRumors</em> went hands-on with the new Eyefi Mobi Pro SD card to check out all of the new features and to figure out whether or not it's worth the $99 price tag. <br/> <br/> <h2>What's in the Box</h2> <br/> The Eyefi box contains one 32GB Class 10 SDHC WiFi card, a USB card adapter that's used to configure the Mobi card, and an activation card that lets the Mobi Pro pair with desktop and iOS apps. The card also allows users to sign up for a free year of access to Eyefi's cloud service, which allows unlimited photo uploads and storage. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefiinthebox-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443680" /> <br/> <h2>Setup</h2> <br/> The Eyefi box directs users <a href="http://www.eyefi.com/go/mobipro_setup">straight to a setup website</a>, which makes finding the setup steps easy. The website has instructions for setting the Mobi Pro up to connect to a mobile device or a computer. <br/> <br/> <!--more--> <br/> Connecting the Mobi Pro to a mobile device first requires a download of the accompanying Eyefi app. On iOS, the app is called <em><a href="http://appshopper.com/photography/eyefi-mobi">Eyefi Mobi</a></em> and is available for free in the App Store. Once installed, the app asks for an activation code, which is included in the box, and it will ask you to install a provisioning profile to allow the iPhone to recognize the Mobi Pro card. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefiappsetup-800x709.jpg" alt="eyefiappsetup" width="800" height="709" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443692" /> <br/> From there, you need to put the SD card in the camera, snap a few pictures, and leave the camera on while you go to the Settings app on your iPhone. Navigate to WiFi and choose the Mobi Pro card network. You'll need to enter the activation code as a password, but the app doesn't specify that, which makes setup a bit more difficult than it needs to be. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefiwifi.jpg" alt="eyefiwifi" width="799" height="709" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-443693" /> <br/> Connecting the Mobi Pro card to a Mac is a similar process, and involves downloading the <a href="http://www.eyefi.com/download">Eyefi Mobi Desktop app</a> then following many of the same activation steps. On the Mac, you don't get a full app -- just a mini app accessible from the menu bar. Plugging the Eyefi card into a Mac with the included USB adapter will bring up some advanced setup settings, letting you add a home network to make uploading photos at home easier. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/macapp.jpg" alt="macapp" width="494" height="460" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-443681" /><em><center>Eyefi Mac app</em></center> <br/> Both the iOS and Mac apps will prompt you to connect the Mobi Pro card to an Eyefi Cloud account. You get a free year of Eyefi Cloud service with the purchase of a Mobi Pro card, and it's $59 per year afterwards. It's not a bad deal because you get unlimited storage and it supports both RAW and JPEG files. <br/> <br/> Eyefi Cloud is not required to use the Mobi Pro card, but it's useful because it syncs photos across all devices and makes them available through the Eyefi Cloud website. <br/> <br/> Setting up the Mobi Pro isn't exactly hard, but it's not entirely straightforward. Documentation is not as clear as it could be, and there were some quirks we found confusing. For example, connecting to the Mobi Pro's WiFi required a password that turned out to be the activation code, but that information wasn't listed anywhere. As another example, when we downloaded the Mac app from the Eyefi site, it downloaded an older version of the software that did not auto update. <br/> <br/> <h2>How it Works</h2> <br/> Once set up, the Mobi Pro card is simple to use. When away from home, the card will create its own WiFi network, so photos (or videos) can be uploaded to an iPhone, iPad, or Mac even when WiFi is not available. Connecting to the card's WiFi is done through the Mac's WiFi bar or the iPhone's settings menu, just like any other WiFi network. When connected, all photos you've taken will be transferred to the device you're connected to (one connection is supported at a time). <br/> <br/> If you're away from WiFi and upload your photos to your iPhone using a direct connection, you can go on to upload those photos to the Eyefi Cloud over cellular if your data plan allows for it, making them accessible anywhere right away. <br/> <br/> In the advanced settings menu, accessible by plugging the Mobi Pro into a computer, you can also set it up to work with a home WiFi network by adding your network's name and password. With your home WiFi network added to the card, it will use your home WiFi to automatically upload photos to the Eyefi Mac app without the need to connect your Mac directly to the card. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefimacsettings-800x629.jpg" alt="eyefimacsettings" width="800" height="629" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443683" /><center><em>Eyefi Settings menu, accessible via the Mac app</em></center> <br/> Once you get home from a photo shooting session, just open the Mac app and turn your camera on to get all of the photos that you shot from the Mobi Pro to the Mac. If you've also signed into Eyefi Cloud, photos will upload to the cloud, which also makes them accessible through the iPhone app. If you're shooting at home, photos will transfer to the computer automatically for easy editing as long as the Mac app is open. <br/> <br/> So basically, you've got multiple ways to get your photos to every device quickly depending on how you want to use the Mobi Pro card. If you do a direct connection to the iPhone app and enable cloud syncing over cellular, photos will be transferred to the iPhone, uploaded to the Eyefi Cloud and accessible on a Mac via a browser. If you wait until you get home, you can transfer the photos to your Mac, where they'll also be uploaded to Eyefi Cloud and available on the iPhone. <br/> <br/> Whenever you're uploading photos from your camera to an iOS device or Mac, the SD card slot on the camera needs to be activated. On most cameras, power is set to shut off after approximately 30 seconds to preserve battery, so this will need to be extended in the camera settings menu to make sure the card stays on. Leaving the camera on to transfer photos can drain the battery faster. <br/> <br/> This isn't much of a problem with JPEGs because the file size is relatively small and it takes just seconds to transfer them, but it can be an issue when uploading larger RAW files because those take a bit longer. It's wise to keep an extra battery on hand if you're planning to use the Mobi Pro to upload a lot of files when away from home. <br/> <br/> <h2>Features</h2> <br/> Speed wise, the Mobi Pro is a class 10 SDHC card, so it supports read speeds of 13MB/s and write speeds up to 23/MB/s. That means it can record full 1080p video or consecutive high-quality still photos. When shooting RAW, we had no issues taking multiple burst photos, and there were no issues recording 1080p video. <br/> <br/> Physically, the card is similar to a standard SD card, and it should be noted that it is more durable than previous-generation Eyefi cards that were prone to breakage. As with most SD cards, there's a physical write protect switch on the side. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyeficard-800x599.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="599" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443686" /> <br/> Eyefi's Mobi Pro card supports several image and video formats, including RAW. RAW files will be uploaded to the Mac automatically, but when you try to transfer RAW files to the iPhone app, they'll be converted into JPEGs. The full RAW files will then need to be transferred to the Mac later, but they can also be uploaded to the cloud via the iPhone if you're signed into the Eyefi Cloud service. <br/> <br/> One of the new features unique to the Mobi Pro is selective transfer, which lets you choose the photos that you want to sync to your devices. With previous Eyefi cards, uploading photos was an all or nothing deal, but that's not the case with the new card. To use selective transfer, you need to enable it using your Mac and then choose photos to keep using the "protect" feature in your camera's settings. You need to individually flag each photo with the protect option, which isn't the most elegant solution, but it's nice to have the option if you only want to sync a handful of photos. <br/> <br/> The Mobi Pro, like all of the Eyefi SD cards, is compatible with a wide range of cameras. Companies like Olympus, Nikon, and Canon even have Eyefi support built-in to their cameras. You can check whether your camera is compatible <a href="http://www.eyefi.com/cameras">using Eyefi's site</a>. <br/> <br/> <h2>Eyefi Apps</h2> <br/> The Eyefi Mac app is basically just used to facilitate photo transfers and to adjust the Mobi Pro's settings, but the <em>Eyefi Mobi</em> iOS app has a few more features. Unlike the Mac app, it will display all of the photos that you've uploaded from your Mobi Pro card, and if you're signed into the Eyefi Cloud, it'll display all of your cloud photos too. <br/> <br/> There are some basic editing tools for cropping and straightening photos built in, plus it organizes all of your photos into albums by date. It also supports tags, includes EXIF info, and lets you delete info. Settings within the app give you the option to send photos you've uploaded to the camera roll, and there's also a setting to import photos you've taken on your iPhone, giving you a way to get all of your photos, taken on camera or iOS device, into the Eyefi Cloud if you're using that. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/eyefiapp-800x709.jpg" alt="eyefiapp" width="800" height="709" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443687" /> <br/> <h2>Customer Service</h2> <br/> During our testing of the Mobi Pro, we ran into a major bug that caused the card to be nearly unusable and unable to connect to a home WiFi network. It wasn't being recognized by the Mac app because as it turns out, our card was never activated properly. This was an error that came up during the activation process, and it turned out to be an error the Eyefi team said it hadn't seen before. <br/> <br/> We had a conversation with an Eyefi product manager who, with the help of engineers, talked us through reactivating the Mobi Pro card and then pushed a fix so it wouldn't happen again to other users. As we had a review unit, we obviously got straight to the top of the customer service ladder, but we were impressed with the company's support database and its willingness to spend several hours on a Friday night fixing an obscure bug. <br/> <br/> <h2>Who's it For?</h2> <br/> The Eyefi Mobi Pro is a card that's suitable for DSLR users who want a way to automatically transfer RAW and JPEG files to their computers or mobile devices. On average, a 32GB class 10 SD card can be purchased for under $20, so at $99 for the Eyefi Mobi Pro, you're paying quite a premium for convenience. <br/> <br/> Is that extra money worth it? It depends on your workflow. If you want a way to quickly get photos from your camera to your iPhone, the Mobi Pro is a good solution. If you need a way to get photos to your Mac or iOS device even when you don't have Internet, the Mobi Pro does that. If you don't want to hassle with removing the SD card from your camera and plugging it into your Mac after a long day of shooting, the Mobi Pro will upload them automatically, and for some, the time saved will make the Mobi Pro worth the money. <br/> <br/> For computers that don't have SD card slots, like Apple's upcoming MacBook, the Mobi Pro will be especially useful, especially during the early months when no SD card adapters exist. <br/> <br/> Many DSLRs and mirrorless cameras these days come with built-in WiFi. If you already have a WiFi-enabled camera, the Mobi Pro may make less sense, but many WiFi cameras are somewhat more limited. For example, with Olympus' line of mirrorless cameras, you can upload to iOS via an app, but there are no options for automatically syncing all photos to the desktop. <br/> <br/> If you're going to get a Mobi Pro SD card, keep in mind that it works best with the Eyefi Cloud service. With Eyefi Cloud, all of your photos are available on all of your devices almost instantaneously for quick sharing and editing, and that's a benefit that can't be overlooked. You get a free year with purchase, but you're probably going to want to keep using it after storing a year's worth of photos, so take into account the $59/year charge. <br/> <br/> <strong>Pros</strong> <br/> <ul> <br/> <li>Uploads photos automatically at home</li> <br/> <li>Uploads photos via direct connect when no WiFi is available</li> <br/> <li>Convenient</li> <br/> <li>Supports RAW and JPEG files</li> <br/> <li>Eyefi Cloud makes photos available everywhere</li> <br/> </ul> <br/> <strong>Cons</strong> <br/> <ul> <br/> <li>Setup is a bit confusing</li> <br/> <li>Expensive</li> <br/> <li>Some battery drain</li> <br/> <li>Selective transfer is time consuming</li> <br/> </ul> <br/> <h2>How to Buy</h2> <br/> Eyefi's new Mobi Pro 32GB WiFi SD card can be purchased from <a href="http://www.eyefi.com/go/mobipro">the Eyefi website</a> for $99.99. That price includes a complimentary year of the company's Eyefi Cloud service, with unlimited syncing and storage.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/44df5806/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/224850946117/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44df5806/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

Tim Cook calls out controversial Arkansas and Indiana leg...

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Twitter today shared Apple’s opposition to a controversial new law in Indiana while calling on the governor of Arkansas to veto legislation before it becomes law. Both laws relate to religious freedom protection but have been criticized as enabling LGBT discrimination.
http://rss.buysellad...65&c=1443425163
Apple joined a crowd of companies publicly opposing similar legislation passed by the state congress in Arizona last year before its governor decided to veto the bill rather than signing it into law.
Apple has championed diversity and equality through participation in initiatives like the annual Pride parade in San Francisco while promoting the message of inclusion at the company.
Tim Cook, who became the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company last year after penning an essay on the subject, has frequently called on the United States Congress to pass LGBT protection legislationthat would protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees from being fired because of sexual orientation. Cook last year made a sizable personal donation to an LGBT initiative that operate in Arkansas.

Apple is open for everyone. We are deeply disappointed in Indiana's new law and calling on Arkansas Gov. to veto the similar #HB1228.
&mdash; Tim Cook (@tim_cook) March 27, 2015

Around the world, we strive to treat every customer the same — regardless of where they come from, how they worship or who they love.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Speaks Out Against Indiana's '...

Today, 06:35 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple CEO Tim Cook today sent out a series of Tweets condemning Indiana Governor Mike Pence's decision to sign a controversial "religious freedom" bill into law, saying Apple is "deeply disappointed" in the move and "open for everyone."

Apple is open for everyone. We are deeply disappointed in Indiana's new law and calling on Arkansas Gov. to veto the similar #HB1228.— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) March 27, 2015


The religious freedom legislation that was approved by Pence on Thursday could let businesses turn away gay and lesbian customers by citing "religious freedom." The approval of the bill has earned Indiana national attention, and much of it has been negative, with organizations and companies throughout the United States vowing to stop supporting the state.

Senate Bill 101 prohibits state or local governments from substantially burdening a person's ability to exercise their religion -- unless the government can show that it has a compelling interest and that the action is the least-restrictive means of achieving it. It takes effect July 1.

Along with Apple's condemnation, the NCAA has questioned the impact the legislation will have on future sporting events, Salesforce has vowed to halt expansion plans in the state, several conventions typically held in Indiana have said they will find other venues, and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee spoke out against the decision and barred all non-essential publicly funded City employee travel to the state.

In his tweets, Cook also called for Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson to veto H.B.1228, a similar bill that was recently passed by the Arkansas state senate, and he reiterated Apple's own commitment to equality and its efforts to treat every customer the same, regardless of "how they worship or who they love."

Around the world, we strive to treat every customer the same — regardless of where they come from, how they worship or who they love.— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) March 27, 2015


Cook came out as gay last October, but even before then, he's had a long history of supporting equality and speaking out against discrimination. In 2013, he lectured on equality at his alma mater Auburn University, and during that same year, both he and Apple publicly supported the Employment Nondiscrimination Act.

Under his direction, Apple released a statement in support of Supreme Court gay marriage rulings, and Cook also led Apple to march in support of the LGBT community during the 44th annual Pride parade in San Francisco.

Slack has been hacked

Today, 05:43 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Coppertino Announces LOOP Music Locker With Support for H...

Today, 05:25 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<a href="http://coppertino.co...Coppertino</a>,the company behind the popular <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/06/vox-music-player-launches-on-the-mac-app-store-free-upgrade-for-macrumors-readers/">VOX Music Player for Mac</a>, has some major announcements to share exclusively with <em>MacRumors</em> readers today, including its upcoming expansion to iOS, an update to the VOX Mac app, and the launch of an all new music storage service, LOOP. <br/> <br/> LOOP is a new cloud-based music locker service that will be built in to both the VOX Music Player for Mac and the upcoming VOX iOS app. Unlike most music lockers available, LOOP will support any type of music file, including FLAC, and it offers unlimited storage. Songs stored in LOOP can be streamed in full quality to any device with the VOX Mac and iOS apps, and music can also be cached for playing offline. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/voxloopformac.jpg" alt="voxloopformac" width="648" height="574" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-443655" /> <br/> Many of the popular music lockers like iTunes Match or Google Play Music limit the number of songs that can be uploaded and only support a few file types. iTunes, for example, only supports MP3 and AAC, while Google Play Music supports MP3, AAC OGG, and WMA. You can upload FLAC music files to Google Play Music, but they'll be transcoded to MP3. LOOP can play them natively, but access to high quality music files comes at a cost -- the service is priced at $49.99 per year or $4.99 per month, which is a bit more expensive than Google Play Music (free) and iTunes Match ($24.99/year). <br/> <br/> Along with LOOP, Coppertino's iOS app is big news, because it's the first time the VOX Music Player has expanded beyond the Mac. Like the Mac app, the iOS app will play any type of music file and it's deeply integrated with the LOOP music service, giving users access to all of their uploaded songs and albums. Like the VOX Music Player for Mac, the iOS app will be available for free -- only the LOOP music storage service costs money. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/voxforiphone-800x689.jpg" alt="voxforiphone" width="800" height="689" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443658" /> <br/> Coppertino's new music service, its upcoming iOS app, and the updated Mac app are still in testing and aren't quite ready for launch, but the company wants to get <em>MacRumors</em> readers involved in the beta testing process with early access to the apps and to LOOP music storage. <br/> <br/> The <strong>first 700</strong> <em>MacRumors</em> readers who are interested in checking out the LOOP music storage locker and the new VOX apps for Mac and iOS <a href="http://coppertino.com/vox-loop-beta-subscription-macrumors">can sign up on Coppertino's website</a>. Those of you who are interested just need to enter an email on the Coppertino site and the company will send a link to download the apps and instructions on signing up for LOOP. Testers will need to install both the iPhone app and the Mac app to take part in the beta program. <br/> <br/> During the beta testing period, <em>MacRumors</em> readers will get free access to the LOOP music locker to test it out and can opt for a longer free trial period after the service launches. <em>MacRumors</em> readers will also get an option to purchase access to the LOOP service at a discount, dropping the price to $34.99 for the year instead of $49.99. <br/> <br/> Coppertino's existing <a href="http://appshopper.com/mac/music/vox">VOX Music Player for Mac</a>, which will get an update with the LOOP service in the near future, can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free.

'Wunderlist' for Apple Watch Brings To-Do Lists,...

Today, 05:00 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Wunderlist has provided a closer look at its Apple Watch companion app, which appeared on the App Store on Thursday ahead of the device's launch next month. The app is designed with a unique Home View that provides access to your most important items first, with four buttons that display a bird's eye view of your to-do lists, agenda and reminders on your wrist.

Wunderlist for Apple Watch delivers a hand-free experience in situations where you might normally use your iPhone, such as while shopping at a supermarket and checking items off your grocery list, or when using smart voice input to add to-dos for an upcoming meeting. The combination of Glances and real-time notifications ensure that you will stay up to date with important things during your day, be it during your morning commute, at the office or at home.

"As you move through the day, you won’t even have to open Wunderlist on your Watch to get stuff done. Just take a look at our Glance during breakfast to review your most important to-dos for the day. Thanks to Wunderlist’s real-time notifications, a subtle tap on your wrist will let you know what your colleagues are working on during your morning commute, and remind you to pick up the milk on your way home from work."

Wunderlist for Apple Watch features custom animations for interacting with the app, and its developers have carefully considered which font sizes, layouts and interactions would work best with limited screen real estate. The result is a design that was inspired by Wunderlist's brand-new colorful sidebar icons, with the majority of the user interface consisting of white text on a black background.

Ultimately, the developers behind Wunderlist for Apple Watch wanted to create software that gets out of your way, all the while providing multipurpose functionality for managing your day-to-day life. Apple Watch, and by extension the wrist, provides a more natural setting for to-do apps such as Wunderlist and Todoist, so it will be interesting to see how developers build upon these apps in the future.

Wunderlist [Direct Link] is free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.mf.gif
