If you’re listening to Beats 1 and hear a track you like, the Now Playing screen will identify it for you, or you can use the contextual menu to add it to My Music or view it in the iTunes Store. But if you were driving or busy doing something else, and want to identify the track that just finished playing, you’re out of luck unless it’s part of a featured playlist.
That’s the problem web developer Callum Jones has just solved in a really simple but neat way: he’s created an @Beats1Plays Twitter account that simply tweets the name of the track and artist of each song played on Beats 1. Even if you can’t stop what you’re doing until ten minutes later, you can simply scroll back through the feed.

Popular music sharing app SoundCloud is getting an update on iOS that brings a number of new features to make for a better overall listening experience.
Among the new features, users can now select to ‘play related tracks’ from anywhere in the app: “let our improved algorithm create an endless stream of similar content from the 100 million tracks on SoundCloud. As easy as tapping Play Related Tracks.”
Another new feature that offers an improved listening experience is a Shuffle button for both your created playlists and songs you’ve liked. Here’s how you can shuffle tracks from within a playlist:
The updated app also gets a few other welcomed tweaks including the ability to add or remove tracks from playlists from within the app, and a new option to repost and share tracks from your liked tracks or from within search.
The updated app, version 184.108.40.206, is available on the App Store now.

Two new reports out of Asia this morning purport to shed light on improvements coming to Apple’s next-generation Apple Watch and the iPhone 6S.
According to a report out of Korea (via Naver/Digital Daily), Apple has decided to source flexible OLED screens for the Apple Watch 2 from both Samsung and LG, prioritizing improved outdoor visibility rather than changing the screen size, shape, or resolution. Outdoor screen visibility is a particular issue for the more reflective, sapphire-faced Apple Watch and Edition, which noticeably reduce the underlying screen’s apparent brightness compared with the glass-faced Apple Watch Sport. The report also claims Apple is more concerned about thinning components than reducing weight, in order to make room for a larger battery.
A second and more questionable report out of Taiwan, allegedly posted to microblogging site Weibo by a Foxconn employee before being pulled and recirculated by PhoneArena, claims to offer a series of additional details regarding the upcoming iPhone 6S. As detailed below, a new pink color, higher-resolution cameras with Force Touch simultaneous video/photo modes, and a faster Touch ID fingerprint scanner are all said to be on tap…
- Apple considered a rose gold iPhone 6S to parallel the similarly-colored Apple Watch Edition, but instead has settled on a pink aluminum with a white front.
- Touch ID has been increased in speed by roughly 30% over the iPhone 6, making fingerprint scanning a less-than-1-second (yet accurate) process.
- The front FaceTime camera will supposedly have a 5MP sensor.
- The rear camera will supposedly have a 12MP sensor and again protrude from the back of the iPhone’s chassis. Apple apparently tested a 16MP sensor in early versions of the iPhone 6S, but moved to a 12MP version later in the production cycle.
- In addition to supporting 4K video and 240FPS slow-motion recording, the iPhone 6S will use Force Touch to let you record bursts of still photos during video recording.
- iPhone 6S will have 2GB of RAM, but 16GB of storage will remain the minimum capacity.
The alleged details are posted for interest, but as the actual source of the iPhone 6S claims is unclear, it should be taken with a liberal handful of salt for the time being.
Reports earlier this year have previously mentioned the new pink color option in testing.

“The way in which that film was shot was extraordinary… extraordinary,” said Winslet, whose excitement for the project bubbled to the surface during her recent press tour for A Little Chaos. “Each act is continuous 45 minutes backstage of real time at each launch that Steve Jobs made during those time periods — ‘84 was the launch of the Macintosh, ‘88 was the NeXT computer, ‘98 was the iMac. Each act takes place backstage and literally ends with him walking from the wings on to the stage to rapturous applause."Winslet continued to comment on the way director Danny Boyle actually shot the movie, describing takes that would last as long as nine minutes, "sometimes even longer." She ends with comparing star Michael Fassbender's dedication to memorizing 182 pages of dialogue to the work of actors and actresses on a Shakespearean stage production, except twice as hard.
“We have nine-minute takes, sometimes even longer,” Winslet continued. “I think there’s a scene that Michael and Jeff had that was about 14 pages, so it really went for 11 minutes of continuous dialogue. It’s not unusual for an actor to learn huge passages of dialogue when you do a play. But it is unusual for an actor like Michael Fassbender to learn 182 pages of dialogue of which he’s on every page. It’s like Hamlet, times two.”Conversations surrounding the movie have been circulating thanks to yesterday's release of the first full-length trailer, which gave fans their first in-depth look at Fassbender, Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen in the new movie. Universal will most likely release another look at the movie before its debut, which is still three months away on October 9.
