I don’t use WhatsApp but if you do, Fleishman does a good job of explaining the false headlines and how you can keep yourself secure on the platform.
Interesting list. There aren’t many places in the bottom half I’d actually want to live in though.
From a music industry perspective, what Apple is attempting to do is extraordinarily messy and difficult and mostly out of their control.
Apple: “Feel the magic of AirPods on iPhone 7”
This makes the kid in me very sad (I still remember the first circus I ever saw as a little kid in Nova Scotia) but the adult is happy the animals will no longer be forced to perform.
I watched some of this yesterday and it’s very cool.
Not “potentially”. Definitely. It’s just a matter of when. I predict at/by WWDC 2017.
I didn’t see the dramatized version of the O.J. story but I really enjoyed this documentary about it.
I agree with Fleishman. When CR found its results to be so out of whack with what would be expected, they should have held off publishing their results until they figured out the issue.
We’ve all seen that video so it’s great to hear from someone involved as to the story behind it and the early iPhone development.
I’ve known Sal for years and there is no better person in the Mac Community. I wish I could go to this event.
Today, it seems like anything that can be imagined can be done through CGI but in the days of silent films, they had to use old school technology to create the “special” effects.
This is an oddly specific job posting.
This video, even with its annoying as hell music, shows what truckers go through trying to drive in winter conditions. I don’t envy them. This road is the Trans-Canada Highway about 30 miles east of where I live. I love riding that road in the spring in summer (it’s one of the prettiest in British Columbia) but you couldn’t pay me enough to drive it in the winter.
As a Nova Scotianer, I’d never seen an Amish buggy until, while riding my motorcycle through Pennsylvania, I came through a curve and saw a large pile of “dirt” in the middle of my line. Rear tire hit the dirt and squirted out from under me. Freaked me out. I looked behind me and realized it wasn’t dirt but horse manure. As I got ready for the next curve, I thought, “Where the hell did that come from?” Looking through the curve ahead, I saw the buggy in the road and literally laughed out loud. I slowed and came up behind the buggy and saw two small children in the back, facing rearward. It was a “buggy station wagon”! The kids waved to me, I waved back and then passed the buggy, still laughing inside my helmet.
As a motorcyclist, this is really interesting and I desperately want more information. This is not a production bike though. It’s very much just a proof of concept at this point. But, if it does come to market, it might help riders, especially beginners, deal with those low speed manoeuvres that can be so difficult.
I love this ad if only because they do it in Greek with English subtitles. I think that’s kind of cool of Apple.
There are a lot of articles you can read today about the launch of the iPhone ten years ago but very few of them will be with one of the principles involved.
The closer we get to self-driving cars, the more inevitable (unfortunately) this will become.
This video shows the announcement at the 2007 Macworld Expo. I was in the room and it was an amazing experience but, ten years ago, none of us could have predicted how the iPhone would literally change the world.
I’m not a big gamer but everyone should be able to find one or two games on this list they’d like to play.
In honour of Chinese New Year, Apple has posted these absolutely gorgeous wallpapers for you to download.
Don’t shed a tear. All of them make more in one year, “disappointing” or otherwise, than most of us will see in our lifetimes.
Ignoring Recode’s breathless “showing just how much power that country has over tech firms” (that’s been obvious for a very long time), it does shows who is more important to Apple.
Canada is celebrating its 150th Birthday in 2017 and this free pass is a great way to visit some of the most beautiful national parks in the world.
I hope there’s a special place in hell for people who abuse animals and another for those who willingly buy animals from such places. I’ve had several dogs and cats in my life (I got my latest one a few weeks ago, a 5-year-old cat named Wallace who is “The World’s Clumsiest Cat”) and every one of them has come from the local version of the SPCA. WARNING: The story includes some disturbing and heartbreaking images of abused animals.
“Cars at the frontier of technology” is both a good thing and a bad thing. At least for those of us in North America, cars are still an important part of life and not just a way to get from point A to point B. But the increasing reliance on technology, to drive sales if nothing else, may be outstripping both a driver’s and our government’s ability to comprehend the direction we are heading.
I love Disney movies but I bet most of you are like me and look fondly upon even the animation styles of the early films, crude as they seem to be by today’s standards.
