Atlas Obscura:

it’s September, and hurricane season is once again upon us. Since it is an El Niño year with cooler than normal temperatures across the tropical Atlantic, everyone is hoping for a low-drama season.

However, as AccuWeather reports, we may not end up being so lucky. Indeed, it is likely that a few tropical storms will track northerly, and make life a living hell for pleasure boaters and working crews alike.

While you may never set sail on the seven seas, why not watch some terrifying, yet mesmerizing videos of ships stuck in storms from the safety of your computer screen?

As a Nova Scotianer, I love the sea but these videos make even the sailor in me queasy.

High school students have a lot to keep track of throught the day, from academics to extracurriculars to the all-important social life. In this post we're going to look at hitting the books, staying on top of things and preparing for what's next. Here is our list of iPhone and iPad apps for high school students.

Numerical (universal, free with in-app purchase) The self-professed "calculator without equal" is literally that: There's no equals button. "The equals button was invented when calculators were the size of furniture. It's time to move on," its developers say. Numerical displays the results of your calculations as they're entered and maintains a history that's one swipe away.

Numerical also offers plain-language errors, which is very helpful and different. If you make an error, it's explained in human-readable English. Nice! With several themes to choose from and a...

Podcast 472: There's a new smartwatch in town

The event is official, and we are officially stoked. This week's news is all about what Apple is getting ready to reveal: a new iPhone or two, the new Apple TV, and release dates for the new OSes. We've been enjoying the new proactive features in iOS 9 that predict which apps you'll want to use at which times and places, and that's one reason we like Nuzzel, a service that predicts what you'll want to read based on what your friends are sharing. Glenn has an interview with Jonathan Abrams, the CEO, about designing a social news app for every device.

Our final discussion is about Android Wear on iOS. Susie's testing it out, and while it can't hold a candle to the deep, OS-wide integration of the Apple Watch, Android Wear on iOS does a few things right. On-device curation of notifications is huge, and knowing when your watch will be fully charged is a nice touch too. Here's hoping Apple takes a little inspiration from Android Wear's more mature platform for future watchOS...

How iTunes Movie DRM-Removal Software Keeps Me Honest

I like to watch a lot of movies on a lot of different devices. Some of those devices are made by Apple, like my iPad and Apple TV, while some are made by TiVo, Roku, Panasonic, Sony and others. I need my media portable; not just portable in the mobile sense to take with me when I travel, but portable in the sense that I can't have limits on which of my devices will play any given movie. There's a way to do that with iTunes Movies, just be responsible when you do.

With Skylake here, I expect new iMacs next month (...

Intel has officially introduced the sixth generation Intel Core processor family, often referred to as Skylake. The processors will certainly appear in new iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and 12-inch MacBooks. The question is "when?"

The 12-inch MacBook launched in April. The 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air were revved in March, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro was updated in May. So I'm predicting no new Mac laptops until early 2016. (However, I'd love to be proven wrong.)

However, the iMac was last updated in October 2014, so I'm expecting a refresh of the all-in-one late this month or next. Most likely we'll see a 21-inch iMac with a 4K display. As for the 27-inch 5K beast, it's likely to be revved with Skylake processors and, if KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo is correct, even better screens with an LED phosphor material called KSF that will boost color saturation.

Considering the 12-inch MacBook as a laptop for...

I’ve been using the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display since its debut. Is it a good laptop for students? Yes — but only if the student, or the person buying it for him/her, is willing to pay top dollar for its incredible svelteness and gorgeous screen, while overlooking its shortcomings. 

The entry level, 13-inch MacBook with Retina display offers more oomph for the same price, while you can save money with either model ($899 or $1,099) of the MacBook Air or the non-Retina display MacBook Pro. 

That said, here's no denying the Retina display is gorgeous and the small design of the MacBook is an incredible feat of engineering. The laptop's display (with a 16:10 aspect ratio) is stunning and pops with clarity. The MacBook's physical resolution is 2304 by 1440 pixels. This means that, at standard “...

The sixth-gen iPod touch excels on all levels

Both of my kids are addicted to social media and, by proxy, the devices made of aluminum and glass that provide access to them.

For the past several months, my youngest daughter has complained of a very sluggish third-generation iPod touch. It was certainly getting long in the tooth; she couldn't even install the latest version of iOS. The meager 8GB of storage meant she had to continually uninstall and reinstall apps in the hopes of freeing up enough space.

Feeling her pain, I agreed to purchase her one of the new sixth-generation iPod touch devices from Apple. While some question the validity and purpose of a new, uber-fast iPod in 2015 (when so many people have opted for a smartphone), my daughter couldn't be happier. Apps that previously would crash or exhibit extreme sluggishness now load and execute in record time.

I'll spare you the hardware spec details of the latest touch, but suffice it to...

Another reason why Apple might want to enter the...

Earlier this week I commented on the rumors that Apple might product original video content. Here's another reason why our favorite tech company might want to do just that: the online digital video market is growing rapidly. As the accompanying chart, based on data from Statista’s Digital Market Outlook, illustrates, the growth potential in online video is much bigger than it is in digital music. 

Annual revenues from video streaming and downloads are expected to grow by more than US$6 billion between 2014 and 2020 – almost four times the expected growth of the digital music market. Considering that subscription-based streaming is the primary growth driver in the online video market, it would make sense for Apple to get into the game before Netflix, Amazon and Hulu can run away with the market.

Sketchy report: Apple may plan a return to glass-on-...

Digitimes report, which seems to be drawing a lot of conclusions from minimal information, suggests that Apple may be planning a return to glass-on-glass touchscreens for next year’s iPhones. Apple used so-called G/G technology for its early iPhones, switching to in-cell tech for the iPhone 5 onward.

The short piece suggests that the move is mostly motivated by supply constraints for higher-resolution in-cell displays, but also suggests that the rumored plan could be geared towards bezel-free displays. Glass suppliers Corning and Asahi are said to have sent samples to Apple.

G/G touch panels may also help Apple develop bezel-free smartphones as in-cell touch panels reportedly are struggling with touch sensitivity on the edges.

As yet, Apple does not have an official retail presence in Austria.

Ahead of a next-generation Apple TV expected to get an official unveiling at Apple’s press event next week, this concept from Andrew Ambrosino imagines a revamped user interface for the device.

We’ve reported extensively on the yet-to-be-announced, next-generation Apple TV and much of the concept from Ambrosino takes into account our reports regarding new features for the device. Most notably, we reported that Apple is currently planning Siri support, a new dedicated remote control, App...

Gear: Knomo Kinsale Soft Leather Messenger Bag

Knomo’s new Kinsale Soft Leather Messenger Bag ($250) can hold up to a 13” MacBook. The front and sides of the messenger bag are covered in smooth leather that lives up to its “soft” name. The leather front flap and the back pocket both shut with strong magnetic closures — the pocket can barely fit an uncased iPad Air. But it’s not like you’ll necessarily need that pocket to store a full-sized iPad, as the bag…

Tip of the Day: Getting Directions from a Calendar...

In many cases, it’s the little things with the Apple Watch that make life easier, especially for users who are always on the go with busy schedules. If you’re frequently hopping between meetings, you may find it useful to know that you can actually get directions to your next event right from the notification on your wrist. Simply force-touch on the alert when it comes up (or the appointment if you’re viewing it in the Calendar app)…

Now available at the online Apple Store: DJI Phantom...

Drones are big business. Whether you're a news organization trying to get shots of the new Apple headquarters building, a surfer wanting to get a different video angle, or a pro mountain biker who wants video for her sponsor, drones are providing high quality video with altitude. Now Apple's getting into the act, adding the DJI Phantom 3 Professional (US$1,259.95) and DJI Phantom 3 Advanced ($999.95) camera drones to the accessory lineup.

Both of these drones are iOS-connected, and feature high-end capabilities like GPS location lock, auto piloting, and -- on the Professional model -- a 4K UHD video camera. The DJI GO app, available for free for the iPhone or iPad...

New App Marries Android Wear Smartwatch to iPhone


Google on Monday rolled out Android Wear for iOS, allowing consumers to pair the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2 and above with an Android Wear watch. They'll be able to check phone calls, messages and notifications; track fitness; and use Google Now instead of Siri to get smart help from their iPhones. Using Google Now instead of Siri is "a cute touch," observed Jeff Orr, a senior practice director at ABI Research. "You're not asking Siri a question -- you're asking Google Voice."

Sneaky adware caught accessing users’ Mac Keychain...

Last month, Ars chronicled a Mac app that brazenly exploited a then unpatched OS X vulnerability so the app could install itself without requiring people to enter system passwords. Now, researchers have found the same highly questionable installer is accessing people's Mac keychain without permission.

The adware taking these liberties is distributed by Israel-based Genieo Innovation, a company that's long been known to push adware and other unwanted apps. According to researchers at Malwarebytes, the Genieo installer automatically accesses a list of Safari extensions that, for reasons that aren't entirely clear, is stashed inside the...

Instagram updates private photo messaging to be more...

We all know a picture is worth a thousand words, so it’s surprising Instagram didn’t let you send photos back and forth—until now.

On Tuesday, Instagram updated its in-app messaging feature, Instagram Direct, so that you could reply to a private photo message using a selfie or video taken on the spot. Direct messages are now also threaded so you can continue conversations and view the messaging history between you and your friends. In addition, Instagram Direct now lets you share a public Instagram photo directly with a friend. Previously whenever you’d stumble upon a funny, inspiring or relevant Instagram pic that made you think of one of your friends, you had to tag that person in a comment using @-mentions. Instagram noticed that about 40 percent of comments included this @-mention, so the app decided to make it easier to share a photo directly with a specific person or group of...

If you find that you regularly need to put together fliers, newsletters, and brochures on a regular basis, you may want to take a look at Belight Software’s new update to Swift Publisher 4 ($15), a desktop publishing app that makes it easy to get great results from without breaking your software budget. You can choose from over 270 pre-designed templates, use grids and place your own guides for precision layouts, and set up an unlimited number of layers to achieve complex designs. Sophisticated column layouts, text styles, and gradient and freehand shapes and strokes are also included, along with a library of over 2,000 clipart images and the ability to import photos directly from iPhoto, Aperture, and now in the latest version, the new OS X Photos app.

The most timeless songs of all time

Polygraph:

This is a story about proving, with data, that No Diggity by Blackstreet is timeless.

Until recently, it was impossible to measure the popularity of older music. Billboard charts and album sales only tell us about a song’s popularity at the time of its release.

But now we have Spotify, a buffet of all of music, new and old. Tracks with fewer plays are fading into obscurity. And those with more plays are remaining in the cultural ether.

As with all lists like this, we’ll never agree completely on its makeup but it’s still interesting to see which songs are being played and their frequency. Jason Kottke has created a Rdio and Spotify playlist of songs from the article.

GoPro app for iPhone & iPad gets smart editing...

The official GoPro app for iPhone and iPad gets an update today which brings a new smart editing feature to let users create and share clips instantly from within the app. Previously users resorted to third-party apps for similar functionality with GoPro camera hardware.

The new feature will let users instantly create edited versions of their videos that come in at 5, 15, or 30 seconds. You’ll be able to drag the timeline to select what 5, 15, or 30 second portion of your video you want to isolate. Once you’ve selected your clip, you’ll be able to instantly share to Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other social sharing options available in the app.

The updated app, version 2.9, also receives an “improved camera software update process” and a number of bug fixes and other improvements.

You can grab the updated app for iPhone and...

Instagram enhances its Direct messaging feature w/...

After mostly letting it sit stagnant for nearly two years, Instagram is ready to show its Direct messaging feature some love. Instagram Direct, which lets you share photos, videos, and messages privately with other Instagram users, was seen as a play at Snapchat and similar apps when it launched in 2013, but it’s so far experienced limited appeal within the photo sharing app. Now Instagram hopes to change that with new features including message threads, giant emoji, sharing from your timeline, and more.

Back to school with a repurposed MacBook

Image from DCComputerWarehouse.com

Back to school means much more than getting new clothes, notebooks, and a box full of unused Crayola crayons. For a lot of students, it’s time to get a computer of some sort, and what better computer than a MacBook? But for parents on a budget, dropping at least a thousand bucks on a new MacBook is out of the question. Never fear, since it’s pretty easy to take even an old MacBook and update it so it’s a perfect school computer.

The perfect student Mac: A MacBook

A perfect Mac for a young student is a 2007 - 2009 MacBook with an Intel processor. That’s a key point; in order to run recent versions of Mac OS X, you’ll want to make sure that the MacBook has an Intel processor and not a G4 or G5 CPU. Old MacBooks available online from resellers for as little as $180, and usually require very little work and money to bring them up to speed.

Why a MacBook and not an iMac or Mac mini? It all has to do with...

LinkedIn, the popular social network for connecting business people, has announced that its messaging experience is getting a serious design overhaul from today. Unlike the previous inbox, messages will no longer follow a traditional email format. Instead, it’s turned towards a messaging app design similar to Facebook Messenger.

LinkedIn has built everything from scratch, from the ground up with a cleaner, streamlined look with a brand new chat-style user interface. You can chat with contacts individually or send group messages, and conversations are organized around the people who are important to you. What’s more, you’ll be able to send documents, images, stickers, emojis and GIFs in your messages.

Apple is reportedly looking to create its own movies or TV shows as it tries to make a mark on the streaming video landscape.

Apple also may have placed an “unprecedented bid” on former Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond earlier this year, though they ultimately signed with Amazon last month.

Several media executives told Variety that they’ve had talks with Apple, and Apple reportedly bid on the new show from the former hosts of Top Gear (Amazon won in the end). Such a move could put Apple at odds with Apple TV mainstays like Netflix and Hulu.

Maybe it’s Time for Apple’s Own TV Studio

Netflix wants to be the next HBO, and it looks like Apple may want to be the next Netflix. Apple may be planning on offering its own original content through Apple TV, much like the streaming video service Netflix does today. The idea that Apple may be planning on launching its own exclusive content isn't new, but this is the first time it's come up recently-and it's finally something the iPhone and iPad maker might be able to pull off.

Beats President Luke Wood, who runs the audio products side of the business, told Mashable that the acquisition was a great fit because the company shared DNA with Apple.

We’re looking at our little audio slice of the world and trying to focus on creating a stellar product experience. I think that’s also the fundamental DNA of everything Steve wanted to accomplish at Apple. By product experience, that includes ID, design, technology, innovation, simplicity. Those are always things that have been fundamental to our DNA, too.

He said that the early days of low-quality digital music resulted in a ‘lost generation’ for premium audio, but that we now live in a very different world … ...

Your iPhone and iPad may one day alert you to special offers at stores you're visiting or are near. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,125,014) for "location-based ticket books." It most likely involves the Wallet app in iOS 9 that's replacing the current Passbook app.

According to the patent, an iOS device can present a virtual ticket to a service provider based on a location of the device. The device can receive a virtual ticket for accessing a service from a service provider. The virtual ticket can be associated with a signal source. The signal source can be pre-programmed to broadcast a beacon signal that includes an identifier identifying the signal source. 



The signal source can be placed at a venue where the service is available. The mobile device, upon arriving at the venue, can detect the beacon signal from the signal source. In response, the iPhone...

Future iMacs may have more glass in their design and...

Future iMacs may sport glass in the rear as well as for a display cover. They may also sport illuminated, wireless keyboards like those on Mac laptops.

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,125,298) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for "fused glass device housings" that may be used to cover a display and other internal electronic device components. Jony Ive, Apple's design guru, is listed as one of the inventors.

In the patent filing, Apple doesn't say why replacing aluminum on devices such as iMacs would be desirable (perhaps it's just cooler looking). However, the company says that the use of glass should be used with care so as not to add extra size or weight to the device. The patent could also refer to a Thunderbolt Display, which is way overdue for a 5K upgrade.



Patent 9,123,485 is for a backlit keyboard assembly. A keycap assembly is mounted into...

I keep a box with around 20 iPad styluses next to my desk, so every time a new stylus arrives, I can easily compare it against its predecessors and rivals. There hasn’t been much functional innovation in the category for a couple of years, but stylus form factors, batteries, and buttons have changed, generally getting simpler and smaller after each generation. Even so, Adonit’s new Jot Dash ($50) surprised me. It comes less than 6 months after the release of Jot Script 2 (reviewed here), but looks and feels a lot different from its predecessor.

Future iPhones, iPads and Macs may serve as smoke detectors to provide security for homes and offices. Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,123,221) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for "wireless device networks with smoke detection capabilities."

According to the patent filing, and iOS or OS X device may use a built-in smoke detector may use the smoke detector to monitor for the presence of smoke. If it detects smoke, the iPhone, iPad or Mac could issue an alert or take other "suitable action."



For example, the iOS or OS X device could transmit alerts to nearby electronic devices and to remote electronic devices such as electronic devices at emergency services facilities. Alerts could contain maps and graphical representations of buildings in which smoke has been detected.
