OS X 10.10.3 beta goes public, bringing the new Photos ap...

Yesterday, 08:50 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

If you're not an Apple developer and you'd like to try the new Photos app for OS X before it launches, now's your chance. Apple has added the 10.10.3 update to its public beta program for OS X, and the update brings Photos (and a bunch of new emoji) along with it.

Photos is a Mac analog for the iOS app of the same name, and it's meant to replace iPhoto as the basic built-in photo app to serve most users' needs. It will also be replacing Aperture, which Apple will stop offering when the final version of Photos is released. Power users will find that it lacks many advanced features, so current Aperture users should begin evaluating alternative software like Adobe Lightroom if they want software that will continue to be supported.

You should always take precautions before you install beta software, and that's doubly true here since you're updating your OS and importing your existing iPhoto libraries into a brand-new program. Make sure you have recent backups of your OS and of your photo libraries in case something goes wrong.

Apple has always allowed customers to test over-ear headphones (Getty)

Apple will begin allowing prospective customers to test out in-ear headphones prior to purchase within Apple Stores, according to several employees. Due to sanitation concerns, Apple has been reluctant to allowing customers to try out in-ear headphones, but a new solution called Demo Kits will solve this problem. Beginning this week, when a customer is interested in purchasing in-ear headphones, an Apple Store employee will have the ability to create a custom Demo Kit that holds up to six different models of in-ear headphones. These kits will include a fresh pair ear tips so that the try on process is sanitary…

The customer will be able to keep the ear tips regardless if they purchase the headphones. The customer can then plug the headphones into their iPhone or iPod to sample the quality before making their purchase decision. Apple told employees that 51% of surveyed customers have said that they would like to test out in-ear headphones prior to purchasing, so this move will likely spur an increase of in-ear headphone sales via Apple Store. Of course, with the upcoming Bluetooth Apple Watch, Apple will market Bluetooth headphones alongside the device for music and fitness applications.

The following headphones are available to try out with Demo Kits (Apple’s prices listed, but linked to better prices at Amazon): RHA MA450i ($49.95), urBeats ($99.95), Beats Tour ($149.95), JayBird BlueBuds X($169.95), PowerBeats 2 Wireless ($199.95), and the Bose QC20i ($299.95).

Nissan, Volkswagen & Daimler execs respond to Apple C...

It was only a matter of time before executives from various automakers responded to news that Apple is looking into developing its own electric vehicle. The first responses come from CEOs of Volkswagen, Daimler and Nissan during interviews at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and the Geneva car show this week.

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

CNET reports that CEO of the Nissan-Renault Alliance Carlos Ghosn responded positively to questions regarding reports of Apple’s electric vehicle project: ”If Apple does it, obviously it’s good news for us,” said Ghosn. ”The fact that a company outside of the auto industry wants to do electric cars is refreshing.” Nissan currently offers its own electric vehicle with the Leaf hatchback.

Daimler Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche (via Reuters) responded to similar questions of Google and other tech companies possibly manufacturing vehicles during this week’s Geneva car show. “Google and the likes want to get involved, I don’t think in the first place to build vehicles,” he said. “We have to understand that, and then to find our roles, to which extent they are complementary, to which extent we become dependent, to which extent we are competitors.” Zetsche previously addressed concerns last month of Apple’s potential electric vehicle plans while downplaying the threat.

That echoes comments from Volkswagen CEO who reportedly also welcomed the news of Apple’s car project as well as Google’s previously announced efforts to get driverless vehicle tech on the roads.

Reports of Apple’s plans to build an electric car first arrived last month. The Wall Street Journal followed up speculation over auto industry hires with claims that Apple had a team of hundreds employees working on an electric vehicle.

We later detailed several key members of the team, many of which joined Apple only recently from Tesla and other automotive related companies.

Apple today released the first Public Beta of the upcoming OS X Yosemite 10.10.3. The new release includes the iCloud-based Photos application for the Mac, new Emojis across the system, and simpler login to Google accounts for profiles with two-factor authentication enabled. This beta is labeled as build 14D87, which is the same as the second 10.10.3 beta for developers, which was released a week ago. The Public Beta is available in the Mac App Store Software Update tab for registered beta users. Apple plans to release the first Public Beta of iOS 8.3 in mid-March, according to sources. Thanks, DJ!

Review: CM4’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Q Card Cases are high-c...

Yesterday, 06:07 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

qcardcase-1.jpg?w=704&h=470

Our editors all have their favorite wallet cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Seth’s top pick is Pad & Quill’s Little Pocket Book, Ben’s fondest of Mujjo’s Leather Wallet Case, and up until now, my pick — based more on material quality than practicality — has been Twelve South’s BookBook. Each of these cases picks up where Apple Pay leaves off, carrying a handful of credit cards and a little cash for the (still numerous) times when wireless payments aren’t an option. But most of the cases haven’t properly balanced practicality and protection.

That’s where CM4’s Q Card Cases for iPhone 6 ($32-$40 at Amazon) and iPhone 6 Plus ($32-$40 at Amazon) come in. Their MSRPs are tied with the most affordable wallet cases I’ve previously seen for the new iPhones, combining the slim protectiveness of a TPU iPhone case with the look and feel of a leather wallet. While the standard $40 cases use realistic-looking faux leathers, CM4’s Limited Edition versions use genuine leather and pack-in simple plastic screen protectors for $60 each (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus). Below, you’ll see why it’s hard to go wrong with any of the Q Card Cases…

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

Key Details:

  • Each Q Card Case has the same three-card capacity.
  • For better or worse, the cards are partially visible on the back so you can push them out easily.
  • TPU material enables CM4 to achieve thinness and protection.
  • The iPhone 6 Plus has “covert” support for a video stand.

qcardcase-7.jpg?w=704&h=470

From my perspective, the key asset Q Card Cases offer is design neutrality. Unlike most of the competing wallet cases out there, the Q Card Cases look identical to regular playthrough (uninhibited front access) cases, and continue to work fully with third-party iPhone stands and accessories. There are six different colors to choose from, including gender-neutral and gender-specific options. Each one has full button coverage on the sides, a small ringer switch cutout, and a somewhat oversized rear camera hole. While the faux leather designs have a real leather-like grain, the dark brown genuine leather feels like smooth boots, and has a small metallic CM4 badge on the bottom.

qcardcase-5.jpg?w=704&h=470qcardcase-6.jpg?w=704&h=470qcardcase-8.jpg?w=704&h=470

One surprise is that the Q Card Cases’ card-carrying compartments are virtually identical from iPhone 6 to iPhone 6 Plus. Three cards fit inside tightly at first — give the material a little time to ease up, notes CM4 — though you can pop them upwards using a groove at the bottom. My only complaint about the compartment is that cards remain partially visible inside the case, though that has been an issue with most of the playthrough iPhone wallets we’ve tested. (Verus’s more plastic-heavy Damda Slide is a rare exception.)

qcardcase-9.jpg?w=704&h=470

Rather than expanding the iPhone 6 Plus’s compartment, CM4 used the extra height to include a thin slot that turns a credit card into a video stand, a legitimately great feature for the larger iPhone. It wouldn’t have been a bad idea to make the compartment a little larger for the big iPhone, though. Fitting cash into the compartment along with three cards isn’t easy at first, though as the material loosens up, you’ll be able to carry both around.

qcardcase-41.jpg?w=704&h=470qcardcase-3.jpg?w=704&h=470qcardcase-2.jpg?w=704&h=470

There’s no question in my mind that all of the standard $40 Q Card Cases offer great value for the dollar, particularly at their $32 starter street prices. The color options will legitimately appeal to men and women alike, as will the functionality: each Q Card Case manages to combine very good iPhone protection with a slim-line wallet that you’ll almost forget is there until you need it. Unless you’re really in need of the genuine leather, there’s no need to pay the premium for those models, as the standard versions deliver just as much class at more reasonable prices.
