Docker's No Flash in the Pan


Docker -- the open source application container technology that has drawn broad interest from the enterprise IT industry -- recently marked its second birthday since its launch in March 2013. Judging by its growth and traction thus far, and the example set by such open source projects as Linux, Hadoop, Android, OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, expect big things from this young open source software project and community. The Docker technology is being embraced by developers, prioritized by large enterprises, and questioned by central IT teams.

Apple has acquired database company FoundationDB, reports TechCrunch. FoundationDB is a company that "develops scalable and fault tolerant databases that support multiple data models." A notice on the company's site says that it has ceased to offer downloads after deciding to "evolve [the] company mission."

According to TechCrunch, FoundationDB may have been an attractive purchase for Apple due to its ability to handle ACID-compliant transactions (aka data transfers) quickly and its strong scalability. A company blog post suggested it could achieve 54 billion writes per hour at a cost-per-write of 3 nano dollars.

FoundationDB's attractiveness came in the speed at which it handled ACID-compliant...

HP Partnership With Apple's Beats Officially...

When Apple acquired Beats Electronics, several companies that had deals and partnerships with the headphone company were forced to sever their agreements, including Hewlett-Packard (HP).

At the time of the acquisition, HP was selling laptops with "Beats Audio" branded speakers, through a partnership with Beats that was originally established in 2011. HP was only allowed to continue development on products using Beats Audio technologies through the end of 2014, leaving the company without an audio partner and without the "cool" factor Beats brought to the partnership.

Ahead of the end of its partnership with Beats, HP began using its own in-house audio solution and ceased using Beats branding and logos, but it was unclear if that solution was based on Beats audio technology, as suggested by ...

Nice Canadians

We experience Canadian nice as soon as we reach customs. The US border guards are gruff and all business. The Canadians, by contrast, are unfailingly polite, even as they grill us about the number of wine bottles we’re bringing into the country. One year, we had failed to notice that our 9-year-old daughter’s passport had expired. They, nicely, let us enter anyway. The niceness continues for our entire trip, as we encounter nice waiters, nice hotel clerks, nice strangers.

We are generally nice people.

Until recently, the only way to deal with this would be to save…

USTelecom, the trade group that represents service providers impacted by the Federal Communication Commission's recent changes to preserve Net Neutrality, filed a lawsuit on Monday in hopes of overturning the new rules. The organization claims the FCC doesn't have the legal authority to regulate an open Internet and shouldn't be allowed to impose regulations outside of its purview on Internet service providers.

The Mac Observer Spin: ISPs said they planned to fight the FCC's Net Neutrality plans, so it isn't any surprise at all to see a lawsuit from an organization representing their interests showing up.

You're on an island that's sinking beneath your feet. Jungle, stone and sand are being consumed by the hungry ocean. Only a few rowboats stand between you and freedom on stable, neighboring islands. Rowboats and sharks. And whales. And giant sea serpents.

Did I mention the neighboring explorers who are trying to commandeer your boats?

This week we're looking at Survive: Escape From Atlantis from Stronghold Games, comparing the tabletop version and the iPad version. Survive is a family-friendly competitive game for three to four players ages eight and up. It takes about 45 minutes to play.

Survive has been a staple in my home for a couple of years now, and I was eager to try the iOS version when it was released. Spoiler: It's really disappointing. But let's start by focusing on the good. First, Survive for...

It’s worth a read for insight into the psychology of fashion sales, and to compare to how you’re treated if you go to check out Apple’s new wearable. The real question is if Apple will require that employees’ monochromatic t-shirts color-coordinate with their Apple Watch bands.

As the current Apple TV continues to add countless new and sometimes unfamiliar channels to the home screen, the out-of-the-box experience grows increasingly complex for new and existing users. The Apple TV home screen consists of colorful rectangles that represent various content providers for serving up entertainment over the Internet to your television, but actually finding something to watch can prove difficult and intimidating for even a seasoned Apple TV owner. Many of the channels require authenticating an active cable or satellite subscription to unlock full access while others are interest-specific likes sports or culture.

Apple TV’s user interface is meant to simulate an iPhone or iPad home screen with apps being channels and the theme optimized for the living room, and you can customize the app arrangement on your Apple TV similarly to your other iOS devices. While you cannot...

Using iMovie, Tally 2 and Audubon Birds to count and...

Every year since 1998, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society have hosted the Great Backyard Bird Count. The four-day event encourages bird watchers around the world to count and identify the birds they see. The crowd-sourced data is compiled and used to examine the distribution and abundance of birds worldwide. We recently set up a bird feeder in our yard and decided to participate in the annual event this year as part of our homeschool activities.

Capturing the birds using the iPhone Camera app

While my older kids ventured out into the cold winter woods to spy the rare birds, my younger set preferred to watch the bird feeder and count from the comfort of our kitchen. We needed to count all the birds we saw for 15 minutes, which posed a challenge as our birdfeeder is quite busy, even during the winter. As a result, we had to introduce some technology into the process to assist in the counting...

Instagram and an upset indie dev

Today, Instagram announced an app called Layout from Instagram. It’s described as “a new app that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image.” In 2012, I released an Apple Editors’ Choice app called Layout that lets you combine multiple photos into a single image. It was even named an App Store Best of 2012 app. Is it just me, or does it seem insincere for Instagram to release a similar app with the exact same name only differentiated by the inclusion of their company name? Do you think they’d be okay with me releasing an app called “Instagram from Juicy Bits?” Neither do I.

This happens way too often, but I don’t think there is a way to stop it.

Since the Office for iPad announcement last March, we’ve worked hard to bring the power of Office to every person, across every platform and device, so people can get things done on their terms.

This substantial increase in distribution has naturally brought some changes in the way people use Office, including how and when they need a subscription to Office 365.

In the same way we’ve tuned Office software to be great on different devices, we’ve also carefully thought through the use cases and business implications involved. We’ve analyzed how our products are used in the real world...

OneNote Class Notebook for blizzard bag management

Today’s post on OneNote for Education was written by Jerry Bradford, director of technology at Washington County Career Center, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.

When adverse weather affects Ohio’s schools, often closing is the only option. The Ohio Department of Education permits five calamity days per year before schools are required to make up additional missed days. On top of the five calamity days, schools can also implement up to three blizzard bag days. Blizzard bags are online assignments delivered by individual schools. Teachers post blizzard bag assignments to a school portal and students must submit their assignments no later than 10 days after returning to school. Blizzard bags must contain content relevant to each class on a student’s schedule and meet the same academic expectations and rigor as a normal school day.

Global teams and clients boost collaboration quality...

Today’s Office 365 post was written by Robert Butler, worldwide director information technology at Hay Group, a global management consulting firm.

Hay Group is all about people. We are a management consulting firm that helps our clients deal with every aspect of human resources, from identifying the right pay scales from country to country to developing executive skill sets. Many of our clients are multinational corporations that come to Hay Group because we understand what it takes to run a global business. After all, we have offices in 50 countries, with more than 88 sites. We know from experience how difficult it can be to establish global pay policies and overcome cultural issues.

Those clients often want their Hay Group consulting teams to mimic the global nature of their businesses, so our teams frequently need to collaborate both internally and...

Our favorite OS X launcher – Alfred

The Sweet Setup:

Being the new kid on the block can have its advantages, but only if you know how to leverage them properly. Our favorite — Alfred — is able to do just that when compared to LaunchBar, Quicksilver, and even Spotlight.

What Alfred does best is incorporate different features from its competitors and implement them in a distinctive, easy, and understandable way — all while offering more power for advanced users to take things further.

I’ve used Alfred for years and agree with this review. Even in its free version, it’s a great launcher but the Powerpack is well worth the price for power users.

Third-Party Mac Developers Begin Embracing Force...

Following its March 9 media event where it introduced "Force Touch" trackpad technology for the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro and upcoming 12-inch MacBook, Apple opened up the feature to third-party developers by delivering developer APIs starting with the third beta of OS X 10.10.3. The APIs will allow developers to support the ability of Force Touch trackpads to sense multiple levels of pressure and perform different actions depending on how hard the trackpad is being pressed.

Apple has already taken steps to build Force Touch support into its own apps, as outlined in a support document. At the simplest level, the new Force Touch trackpads support a new "Force click" functionality, which allows a user to click on an item and then press a bit...

Apple on Monday updated a section of its Apple Pay website, adding a new feature that allows businesses to order Apple Pay decals for merchants.

Clicking the link to order decals takes merchants to a new Apple Pay Supplies website where they can sign up to receive an Apple Pay kit that contains window and register decals.

The Apple Watch may see supply constraints before launch, but Apple should be prepared for them.

This is what one source has indicated, as Apple has seen similar issues. When the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debuted last year, Apple struggled to keep up with consumer demand for months.

That may happen again with the Apple Watch. One person familiar with Apple’s internal logistics shared this week that with all of the new technology introduced in the Apple Watch, the company has faced production issues with the wrist-worn device “at every stage of the development.”

This source said that while there may be some yield issues...

Several years after Steve Jobs’ untimely death, journalists — particularly ones who previously interviewed or covered Jobs — are still combing their archives for underreported facts or quotes that might justify new books on Apple’s enigmatic CEO. Naturally, the overlap with earlier works is significant, as new authors repeatedly acknowledge leaning on Michael Moritz’s (Return to) The Little Kingdom and Owen Linzmayer’s Apple Confidential 2.0, among many others.

.

Ken Baumgartner – 6’1”, 205 pounds, with a penchant for doling out punishment – was not the kind of guy you wanted to see angry. Baumgartner was a left wing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. More specifically, he was their enforcer; a man paid literally to inflict pain on opponents. But in 1992, the target of his aggression was not another player; nor was it a coach or referee. It was a videogame producer at Electronic Arts named Michael Brook.

‘Hi, I’m Ken Baumgartner,’ he said flatly by way of introduction. As a lifelong hockey fan, Brook already knew who he was, and indicated as much with a tiny flinch of a smile. Despite the recognition, the thuggish enforcer felt compelled to further introduce himself:

‘I’m the guy you gave a zero rating to for Intelligence.’

It works about as well as you might expect — with the Mac Plus taking minutes to load a Web page — but it goes to show that anything is possible.

Why I am buying the Apple Watch before I even see it

People are eyeing the Apple Watch for a variety of reasons. Its luxury appeal, its newness, and its utility as a smartwatch and fitness tracker are among the selling points of the device. My interest in the Watch does include its usefulness as a smartwatch and fitness tracker, but there are three other reasons that compel me to pick one up on day one.

Social Acceptability

The first reason is social in nature. I spend a fair amount of time in the company of other people where it is awkward to pull out my phone. I volunteer at a nature preserve where I help with summer running events and provide gear in the winter to individuals and families who wish to ski on the premises. I hate missing an important email when I am volunteering, but feel it is rude always to pull out my phone. This same uncomfortable situation arises in other social situations, such as dinner dates or meetings,...

Analyst: AAPL on Track to Hit $1 Trillion Market Cap

Cantor Fiztgerald analyst Brian White thinks Apple's future is so bright that he raised his 12-month target price for the company's stock from US$160 up to $180, which would put its market cap up over $1 trillion. He said the launch of Apple Watch, iPhone growth in China, and the iPhone and iPad maker's potential with its rumored electric car will all help to push the stock value higher.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple seems to be the darling of Wall Street and most analysts are very optimistic about the company's future. Topping the trillion dollar market cap mark would be huge for Apple.

Apple has in the past not looked kindly on companies offering MagSafe adapters for their products, but with a magnetic connection for audio rather than power, and Apple starting to move from MagSafe to USB-C, perhaps a new Kickstarter campaign might make it.

Magzet is a two-part magnetic kit for 3.5mm audio connections. One half is designed to remain in the audio socket (and cleverly manages to avoid cutting sound to the speaker when there’s nothing connected to it), the other attaches to your headphone jack. Once in place, it breaks away cleanly like MagSafe if you walk away from the device while still wearing your headphones.

Italian regulators have completed an investigation into allegations that Apple failed to pay €879 million ($964 million) in corporate taxes, according to Reuters.

Apple claims that it has paid all necessary taxes in countries that it operates and remains confident that the case will be resolved.

The investigations accuse Apple of booking profits generated in Italy through an Irish subsidiary in an effort to lower its taxable income base and save nearly €900 million from 2008 through 2013. Apple argues that it's "one of the largest tax payers in the world and paid every euro of tax it owed wherever it did business," and remains confident that the allegations are without merit and will be resolved....

Becoming Steve Jobs co-authors Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli told the NY Times that the public image of Steve Jobs got stuck in the pre-NeXT days, when he was younger and more hot-headed, because he chose to limit media contact after rejoining Apple.

I felt that the early stereotype of him as half-genius, half-jerk from birth had stuck around — it was set during his early years at Apple, and it had lasting power mainly because after 1987 he restricted press coverage.

There was, say the pair, nothing out there to portray the ways in which the post-NeXT Steve–Steve 2.0–had matured, echoing comments by another...

AUSTIN—Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine hasn’t even been widely released yet, and it’s already stirring the controversy pot. Early reviews have called it cynical (and similar in tone to Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs), Eddy Cue spoke out against this “mean spirited” film on Twitter, and rumors of Apple employees walking out of the theater have been circulating since the film’s premier earlier in March.

But in quiet a meet-and-greet with the press the day after the film’s first screening at the South by Southwest Film festival, director Alex Gibney said he didn’t set out to make a negative film—he just wanted to get a better understanding of the world’s fascination with this man.

New York is an iconic city with a rich history of innovation. I have a lot of family in New York and grew up visiting the city. Now that I’m living in Seattle, thousands of miles away, I don’t get to visit very often. However, I thought it might be fun to see if I could explore New York from the comfort of my desk using Excel. Through a little Internet searching, I discovered New York City’s “PLUTO” dataset. Created by the Department of City Planning, the PLUTO dataset includes information on every building in the city—more than 500,000 in total. I downloaded the dataset as CSV files and using Power Query for Excel, imported the data directly into Excel. I focused on the data file containing...

Instagram Launches ‘Layout’ App for Collages

Instagram announced Monday a new app called Layout for iOS (Android users can expect it in "the coming months"). Layout is a standalone app for making collages that can be posted to your Instagram feed, Facebook, or sent to other apps in iOS. It allows users to choose apps n the camera roll and then pick a layout pattern. The app auto-populates the photos into that layout, and the user can then swap photos out, rotate them, flip them, pinch to zoom, or drag them around. It includes a Faces tab that automatically detects photos with faces in them, and there's also a Photo Booth mode that allows you to take several photos in quick succession. Layout is a free app, and it's available now.

Glass Is Still a Twinkle in Google's Eye


Google hasn't killed Glass, its controversial Internet-connected eyewear, CEO Eric Schmidt said in an interview published Monday. In fact, Google plans to bring out a new version of Glass later this year, he said. Rumors of its demise seemed to be confirmed in January, when Google abruptly stopped selling the initial version of Glass, shuttered its Explorer program, and moved the project out of the Google X research lab. Under the reorganization, Tony Fadell, head of Google's Nest division, began overseeing the strategy of the Glass program.

Apple Doubles MacBook Pro R/W Performance

Lucas123 writes Benchmark tests performed on the 2015 MacBook Pro revealed it does have twice the read/write performance as the mid-2014 model. Tests performed with the Blackmagic benchmark tool revealed read/write speeds of more than 1,300MBps/1,400MBps, respectively. So what's changed? The new MacBook Pro does have a faster Intel dual-core i7 2.9GHz processor and 1866MHz LPDDR3) RAM, but the real performance gain is in the latest PCIe M.2 flash module. The 2014 model used a PCIe 2.0 x2 card and the 2015 model uses a PCIe 3.0 x4 (four I/O lanes) card. Twice the lanes, twice the speed. While Apple uses a proprietary flash card made by Samsung, Intel, Micron and SanDisk are all working on similar technology, so it's likely to soon wind up in high-end PCs.

1Password’s “open letter to banks”

1Password:

TD Canada Trust made quite a splash recently when it launched its redesigned iPhone app which disabled pasting in the password field. Users who embrace password managers for their online security were quick to point out their … well, ‘unhappiness’ with this decision. TD Canada’s original response to those users was unsettling.

I had something similar happen to me over the weekend. Canada Post limits passwords to “8 to 12 characters using only numbers and letters”. These institutions need to realize longer, more complicated passwords are better for security.

Apple has launched a new website today that allows business owners to order Apple Pay decal packs for their stores. Each of these packs includes two glass decals in different sizes, two register decals (also in different sizes), and a tool for affixing the ads to the appropriate surfaces.

Businesses can order up to five of these packs (for a total of twenty decals) absolutely free of charge, but those who need more than five will need to call Apple to place an order.

Earlier this month Apple made the Apple Pay logo available for download and provided a PDF explaining its guidelines for using the payment mark. In its guideline document, Apple specifies that the Apple Pay logo should be placed ahead of similar marks for other payment services like MasterCard and Visa.

There are also rules for sizing the icon for physical signs, mobile and desktop websites, and emails. The guidelines document and a vector...

A sample 3-photo collage from Layout.

And yea, verily, today Instagram also begat Layout (free), an iPhone app for making photo collages and send them out to the multitude. And it too is good.

How to Surf the Web on a Mac Plus

The Internet as we know it today didn't exist when the Mac Plus was introduced in 1986, so is it even possible to get one online and loading modern Web pages? Turns out the answer is yes, and Jeff Keacher did it just to show it can be done. It involved using a Raspberry Pi as a bridge to his network and some custom-rolled code to handle virtual host names instead of just IP addresses, and strip out CSS, Javascript, DIVs, and other newer stuff that wasn't around in 1986. In the end, Jeff's nearly 30 year old Mac was online and surfing the Web.

New iOS 8.3 Features: Speaker Calls With Siri, No...

The most recent iOS 8.3 beta was seeded to developers on March 12, but even though its been in the hands of testers for over a week, people are still discovering hidden features. Over the weekend, two new iOS 8.3 features were found, including an update to Siri and an update to app purchase settings.

With the iOS 8.3 beta 3 installed, users can now ask Siri to make phone calls using the iPhone's speaker. If you ask Siri to "Call [name] on speaker," the call will be made via speakerphone, enhancing Siri's hands-free capabilities. If you make the same request in iOS 8.2, Siri ignores the "on speaker" part and places the call as normal.

The new feature makes it possible to activate Siri while plugged in by saying "Hey Siri" and make a phone call, all without needing to touch the phone or put on a headset for hands-free operation.

Chrome for Mac no longer crashes when loading...

Users of Google Chrome for Mac are no longer vulnerable to strings of foreign-language characters that for more than six weeks triggered crashes each time the browser attempted to render them.

The forbidden three-character string was reported in February on Google's official Chromium developer site. To prevent her Mac-based version of Chrome from crashing before the bug report could be posted, the author uploaded the enigmatic string here. Sure enough, when opened with most versions of Chrome for OS X, the characters caused the tab to crash and display the familiar "Aw, Snap!" error message.

Late last week, reports of the denial-of-service string that must not be named emerged again. When viewed in TweetDeck and Apple's Safari browser, the string...

iRig 2: New and Improved Mobile Guitar Interface...

I've used the original iRig to play my guitars through my iDevices with IK Multimedia's AmpliTube and Apple's GarageBand (free) apps for years. It was a workhorse and a bargain at $39.99, but my one complaint was that it lacked an input gain control, so I had to record some of my guitars at lower-than-I'd-have-liked recording levels. iRig 2,the successor to my venerable iRig shipped last week, fixing my only complaint and adding new features like a 1/4" amplifier output jack, FX/Thru switch, and Android compatibility (not that I care)-all at the same low price ($39.99 - Amazon link). If you want to play your guitar through your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, I can't think of a better or more reasonably-priced way to connect it than iRig 2.

Many of us keep backups of our data on hard drives, using Apple's Time Machine, but how many of us keep multiple copies? And copies that are protected from not only disk failures, but also natural disaster? Estimates suggest 30 percent of people have never backed up their data, and the number of people who keep multiple backups is even lower.

With World Backup Day coming up, we teamed up with ioSafe and Synology to explore the consumer-oriented backup options they offer and to demonstrate the importance of keeping several copies of your data by simulating the effects of a house fire on the hardware.

If you're not familiar with ioSafe and Synology, ioSafe is best known for its disaster proof solutions, producing a range of hard drives that can withstand fire and water damage. Synology is...

Apple Makes it Easier to Target Ads on iTunes Radio

Apple's iAd service for selling advertising space in apps and on iTunes Radio finally added the ability to buy ads for the company's streaming music service without first going through the iAd sales team. The new system uses the same Workbench utility app developers rely on to push relevant ads to their customers.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple wants to make sure iTunes Radio is an appealing option for advertisers, and making it easier to target listeners with appropriate ads is one way of doing that. Apple says it isn't sharing any listener information with advertisers, which is good news for those of us who don't want to be the product yet again.

2015 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro models drop Windows 7...

The good news is that Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks are pretty nifty. The bad news is that they won’t boot Windows 7 in Boost Camp. Apple’s official support documentation has it that Boot Camp only supports Windows 8 and 8.1 on the new devices; however, official Windows 10 support will likely roll out later in 2015.

This is the second time Apple has decided to give Windows 7 the cold shoulder. The late 2013 Mac Pro also ceased to support Windows 7 in Boot Camp boot, but other Macs released 2014 did support Microsoft’s operating system.

Instagram’s new Layout app automatically generates...

Instagram today released a new app called Layout that lets users easily stitch together multiple photos by automatically generating layouts to make a collage of sorts.

When you open Layout, we automatically show you previews of custom layouts as you choose photos from your camera roll. To make it easier to find the photos you want, we’ve also added a Faces option that shows you all the photos in your camera roll that feature people.

While the app will suggest custom layouts for your photo collage, you can also customize the photos with editing controls for layout, sizing, flipping, and rotation.

Instagram also highlighted a feature of the app called ‘photo booth’...

Are Apple Watch orders being slashed as reported by...

Apple has allegedly slashed its initial order of Apple Watches in half, cutting the number of units from around 3 million to just 1.5 million, a new report out of Taiwan claims. As has previously been the case with Apple device launches, supplies of the new wearable are expected to be constrained due to manufacturing difficulties.

The problem seems to stem from Apple’s decision to switch to a new type of display for the watch. Those new AMOLED panels are...

Apple has released an updated build of the OS X 10.10.3 beta for both developers and public beta testers. The latest build is the same for both: 14D113C. Developers, however, also have access to Yosemite Recovery Update 3.0. OS X 10.10.3 includes the brand new Photos app which replaces both iPhoto and Aperture with support for iCloud Photo Libraries and an overhauled design. The first public beta for OS X 10.10.3 launched earlier this month, while registered developers have been testing the update due out this spring since early last month....

Apple Seeds Fifth OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite Beta to...

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of OS X Yosemite to developers, almost a month after seeding the first OS X 10.10.3 beta and just a week after releasing the fourth beta to developers.

The new beta, build 14D113c, is available for registered developers through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center. Yosemite Recovery Update 3.0 is also available.

With today's update, Apple has continued polishing the Photos for OS X app, and there are just two remaining known issues with the software, including an issue with favorites and a problem with missing thumbnails when restoring an Aperture-upgraded Photos library with Time Machine.

Earlier betas of OS X 10.10.3 have brought several new features to Yosemite, including the new Photos for OS X app. Designed to integrate...

Apple gives stamp of approval to new Steve Jobs...

Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about Steve Jobs, a new book is about to set the record straight with some help from Apple.

Becoming Steve Jobs, an unauthorized biography from Fast Company reporters Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli, wasn’t given the stamp of approval from Jobs himself, but the book—out on Tuesday—has plenty of support from Apple. CEO Tim Cook, design head Jony Ive, and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior VP of software and services, have all publicly bashed Walter Isaacson’s official look at Jobs, which was published after his death in 2011. Jobs picked Isaacson to write his biography and didn’t exert any editorial control over the end result, which painted the Apple cofounder in a largely unflattering light.

Microsoft is pretty much done with Windows 7, and now, so is Apple. The new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops introduced earlier in March will not run Windows 7 via Apple's dual-boot assistant, Boot Camp. According to Apple's support documentation, Boot Camp only supports Windows 8 and 8.1 on the new devices; however, official Windows 10 support will likely roll out later in 2015.

Office 2013 modern authentication public preview...

Today’s post was written by Paul Andrew, technical product manager for Identity Management on the Office 365 team.

Today we are pleased to announce that Office 2013 client modern authentication features have moved from private preview to public preview. This means the program is easier to join and production support is included for participants. Modern authentication brings Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based sign in to Office 2013 Windows clients. Previously, this was only available as a private preview for testing. Now modern authentication is available to any customer running the March 2015 or later update for Office 2013. It will continue to be off by default in the client, but can be enabled on Windows machines by participants in the public preview.

AWT Health Club Week One - Let's get moving!

By Bill Branson, National Cancer Institute, via Wikimedia Commons

It's a Monday, a good day to start a new project. Here at Apple World Today, we're trying a life-changing project that all of you can choose to participate in if you'd like… or not! It's called the AWT Health Club, and it's all about making healthy choices.

In the past 15 years, I've gained about 20 pounds. There are a few reasons for that; I have a sedentary job, I'm not a fan of exercise, and I love good food and beverages. There are some very compelling reasons for me to lose weight and become more active — I’m in my late 50's, my father has heart issues and diabetes, and I figure if I don't change my habits soon I will go down that same path.

Starting today, every Monday I'm going to publicly share my weight, my loss or gain for the week, my daily activity for the last week, and other health-related info of interest. I'll also share information about apps I'm using or trying out, whether or...

Images of Apple Wireless Keyboard With Backlight...

A new Apple wireless keyboard featuring backlight keys and a power button has been spotted on the Apple Online Store in Czech Republic and Hungary, with an identical Arabic version appearing on the U.S. storefront. The graphic render shows controls for adjusting the brightness of the backlight added to the F5 and F6 keys, as found on current MacBook models, while the eject key for CDs has been replaced with a power button.

Apple has not updated the product description for its wireless keyboard to match the new visualization, so it remains to be seen if this was simply a mistake or if the company will quietly refresh the keyboard...
