Hands On: Paste 1.1.0 (OS X)

10/06, 10:24am

Visually use and manage your clipboard history

There was a time when iOS didn't have copy and paste, yet despite Android users mocking us, we honestly weren't that fussed -- until we got it, and couldn't believe we'd functioned a single day without it. It's the same with clipboard managers for OS X: first you can barely register what the term means, you're that disinterested, but then you use one and, wallop, you're wondering why anyone would work without one. Yet people do, otherwise perfectly normal and sane people get through life without clipboard managers. Paste 1.1.0 could be the way to convince them, because it is a very visual clipboard manager: you see this and you understand right away.

Briefly: Apple buys Perceptio, adds new transit info to Maps

10/06, 1:50am

Sydney, Boston transit directions added in first post-iOS 9 expansion

On Monday, Apple quietly added two new cities -- Boston, Massachusetts and Sydney, Australia -- to its list of cities that include full transit information and directions. The Feature Availability page for iOS now shows a total of 13 individual cities with full transit data, with a generic "China" label to signify transit data for some 300 cities in China. The data for transit includes route maps, station maps (a feature not found with Google Maps), departure times and platforms or stops for ferries, busses, and trains.

Porsche opts for CarPlay only with latest Carrera models

10/06, 1:00am

Cites excessive data collection as reason for tech snub

Porsche has opted to support only Apple's CarPlay infotainment technology in its latest 911 Carrera and Carrera S models, blocking Android Auto support chiefly because Google demands detailed information from the vehicle's onboard diagnostics unit that is then sent to Google, compared to Apple's need only for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to tell CarPlay if the car is in motion. The carmaker was reportedly unhappy with Google's need to collect intricate data on the car's performance for no apparent reason.
