Goodbye from MacNN, and Managing Editor Mike Wuerthele

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 5:00pm
This is it. The last unique words on the MacNN homepage, barring some miracle. Hey gang, I'm Mike Wuerthele, and I've been your host here for the last couple of years, so it's only fitting that I'm the one turning off the lights....

Rumor Roundup: Oh yes it is! Oh no it isn't!

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 4:00pm
As much as we lampoon some of the sillier rumors in this space, we do like taking a peek into the crystal ball of what might happen and picking out our favorites to bet on. As we all know, some of them come true, some of them never do, some may come true someday -- so they're like prayers, in a way -- and there is some fun in handicapping the likelihood of which camp a given rumor will fall. In recent years, the dead zone between the end of WWDC and the announcement of the new hotness(es) in the fall there comes a second "silly season" where analysts, pundits, and other assorted otherwise-unem...

Spotify claims app update rejection by Apple 'raises serious concerns'

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 3:59pm
Apple is abusing its position as gatekeeper to the App Store by blocking the latest version of Spotify's iOS app, according to a letter allegedly sent from the streaming company to Apple general counsel Bruce Sewell. A report claims Spotify general counsel Horacio Gutierrez is "causing grave harm to Spotify and its customers" by rejecting the iPhone app update, with Apple's billing system being at the heart of the complaint....

Best of MacNN: the MacNN Podcast, episode 25: My Stupid Cat's Fault

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 3:47pm
Editor's Note: there are many examples of our MacNN Podcast that we are proud of, but this one we picked as an example of "the best of MacNN" because it is so representative of what the podcast was about: comraderie, laughs, news, insight. Even though the podcast focused on stories that had already been reported on the site, it gave listeners both our analysis of those events as well as a look at the people behind the reporting. The good news is that the podcast will continue after MacNN's shutdown under a new name, so we hope previous listeners and new ones will join us for more banter, bad j...

Best of MacNN: Lawyer sues Apple for not preventing his porn addiction

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 12:47pm
Editor's Note: Over the last week, we have been highlighting some of the more memorable stories from MacNN's archive, re-running them and providing some updates on what happened afterward. While some selections have been important moments in the site's history, items such as the 2013 story of a lawyer suing Apple because it's devices didn't prevent him from viewing pornography are chosen for their sheer absurdity....

Hands On: macOS Sierra, part two

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 11:55am
In part one of this piece, we took a look at some of the headline features in macOS Sierra, coming later this fall. This time around, we examine some of the other features that Apple has baked into macOS Sierra. As we noted last time, there is a lot to like about what Apple is adding to the macOS mix with this latest update. Features like Apple Pay for the web, Auto Unlock with Apple Watch, Universal Clipboard, iCloud Drive, Optimized Storage, and Tabs are also worth a look, particularly as the latter is something I suggested to Apple a couple of years ago, and it's great to see them implement...

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 11:31am
A long-running store that provided Apple-related products and services is preparing to shut down in New York City, after 29 years of operation. Founded in 1987 and predating Apple's own retail empire by more than a decade, Tekserve has confirmed it is preparing to shutter its store and wind down its service center over the next two months, with around 70 people losing their jobs from the West 23rd Street store's closure....

Giveaway: Final reminder of all current MacNN Deals competitions

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 8:27am
Normally on MacNN, we point our readers at some of the giveaways happening over at MacNN Deals. Since this is the last giveaway post to grace the front page of this site, we thought that it would be best to highlight all the ongoing giveaways at the store rather than just one, giving you a final chance to know about everything that is up for grabs and to enter if you haven't already, including one competition we haven't had time to promote....

Bang & Olufsen unveils Beoplay H5 wireless earphones

MacNN Podcasts - Thu, 06/30/2016 - 6:58am
Bang and Olufsen has unveiled the first wireless earphones in the company's history, to go alongside its existing wireless headphone collection. The Beoplay H5 take the appearance of a cleanly-designed pair of in-ear earphones, with the two audio-producing sections connected by a braided cable and a compact remote section, minimizing the amount of extra bulk that typically accompanies wireless earphones to house batteries and radio components....

Best of MacNN: Detroit woman sues Apple, Nike for $5 billion

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 4:33pm
Editor's Note: as we count down the last days of MacNN, we've been picking some favorite stories to re-run. We've seen it all across these 21 years, and we've pointed to some of the biggest stories we've ever covered, but just as memorable are the oddball ones. This is another of those: the phrase "detachable beeper disc digital gym shoe computer wrist watch" won't leave our minds anytime soon, nor Ms. Washington-Gross' demand for $5 billion in recompense from Apple (and not anyone else in the wearable field, it would seem). The case was dismissed about a month after it was filed, but it lives...

Saying Farewell: Editor Charles Martin

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 3:37pm
Some of you may have a similar feeling when you find out that they have torn down your old childhood school, or when you see a picture of your old flame; there are a lot of happy memories, and everything turned out okay, but what was and could have been are a bit sad nonetheless now that they're gone. I have been really touched and a bit overwhelmed at the outpouring of well-wishes and memories from our readers, Twitter followers, FB buddies, fellow Apple-centric sites, and others around the world, and like you I wish things had turned out differently, but the feedback has made a bad week bett...

Fourth betas for OS X 10.11.6, iOS 9.3.3, tvOS 9.2.2 released

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 2:12pm
On Wednesday, Apple released both developer and public-tester versions the fourth beta for its next current-release update for OS X and iOS, and a developer-only fourth beta for tvOS. Developers are also expecting to gain access to a second beta for the major upgrades to these and watchOS in the near future, as it has been two weeks since the first beta was released at WWDC.

Best of MacNN: Apple unveils 'revolutionary' iPhone

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 1:11pm
Editor's Note: Today marks the ninth anniversary of the iPhone's initial sale to the public. On June 29, 2007, the smartphone that effectively changed the mobile phone industry, and arguably computing as a whole, overnight was put on sale in Apple Stores, though with this Best Of MacNN post, we're instead looking at an earlier event, namely when it was first unveiled onstage by Apple chief Steve Jobs during Macworld....

Hands On: macOS Sierra, part one

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 12:53pm
Apple's latest version of its desktop OS has picked up a rebrand, bringing it into alignment with its tvOS, watchOS, and iOS lowercase stablemates. The rebrand also suggests that Apple is going to settle into a pattern of continually evolving its desktop OS iteratively -- OS X is now macOS in perpetuity, with the internal codename now taking top billing. While it naturally picks up several new marquee features, the arrival of Siri on the Mac is by far the biggest news in macOS Sierra. Read on for our initial thoughts....

Man 'marries' iPhone in Las Vegas ceremony

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 12:19pm
While in no way legal or binding, The Little Las Vegas Chapel has played host to an unusual ceremony where a man named Aaron Chervenak had a commitment ceremony to "marry" his iPhone. While the groom himself did not comment, chapel owner Michael Kelly, who has overseen similar ceremonies involving pets "getting married" or "weed weddings" where people professed their love for marijuana, said the "iPhone marriage" was intended as a statement on society's dependence on the devices....

Apple gains patent for location-based smartphone control via infrared

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 11:38am
Apple has come up with a way to control functions of a smartphone, via infrared light. The recently published patent for "Systems and methods for receiving infrared data with a camera designed to detect images based on visible light" (9,380,225) suggests infrared light received by a sensor could be used to transmit data to the device, forcing functions to work in specific ways, or in some applications, temporarily disabling some elements entirely....

The Big Deal: Grab over $3,000 of photography resources for only $99

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 8:54am
For quite a while now, MacNN sometimes finds a deal that is too big or important to go into our other deal lists, and is deserving enough to be highlighted inside its own Big Deals post. Even though the clock is running out for MacNN, we're still going to point out the deals we think you will enjoy like we always have. Like last summer, we've found one of the largest photography bundles deals available, with the aptly named The Big Deal 2016 from Foto Promos....

Apple finances music videos to help secure exclusivity deals

MacNN Podcasts - Wed, 06/29/2016 - 8:01am
Apple is helping to fund the music videos of artists and bands, as part of its plan to gain exclusives for its streaming music service. Executives from both Apple and elsewhere in the industry advised to a report the iPhone producer has helped finance musical projects, including Drake's Hotline Bling and MIA's Borders videos, to not only get content for its subscribers not available anywhere else, but also to make Apple Music a more attractive place to be, in a similar vein to MTV in the 1990's....
