Hands On: Localscope 4.3 (iPhone)

07/01, 10:20am

We may have been looking at this the wrong way: previously, we've described this app -- now updated to Localscope 4.3 -- as a competitor to Where To?, and we've said that its rival wins. For apps you use to find a place and then get to it, Where To is better -- but maybe we were wrong to regard them as direct competitors.

Living without: iMac – part two, it's back

07/01, 10:14am

Last week we told you what happens when Apple recalls your iMac, pulls it out of your hands in order to do its recently announced 3TB hard drive replacement. We also told you that if your iMac is from between December 2012 and September 2013, you should check Apple's site about this and get it sorted. Get it looked at and seen to. However, we then said we expected that this week we'd be telling you: "it came back, we signed more paperwork, we got on with our work." There was more to it than we'd expected though and that's only half because we went through more withdrawal symptoms than we imagined possible.

Sprint lifts 600kbps video stream restriction on All-In plan

07/01, 10:06am

Sprint has backtracked on its decision to limit the bandwidth of video streams in a recently launched plan, following online complaints. The All-In plan, launched just yesterday, will no longer have the video-specific rule in play, which prevented subscribers from watching streaming video at higher bit rates than 600kbps, with the carrier having to find other ways to prevent its network from being heavily used.

Hands On: Dragon Jump 1.0 (iOS)

07/01, 8:02am

We were born a few centuries too late to become knights -- the kinds that guard castles, tilt in jousts, and of course, slay dragons. That doesn't stop us from wishing for the glory days of yore, however. If you've ever wanted to protect a castle of your own, we suggest that you check out Dragon Jump, a game for all the modern-day knights out there.

It's that time again -- Apple has hit us all with a flood of releases, and leading the pack are Apple Music and Beats One. Join Managing Editor Mike, MacNN Editor Charles, and writer William for a discussion of all the hits, misses, and we discuss if we should keep the wheel in the sky turning for what's on tap, or if Apple's new offering is little more than a rainbow in the dark.

Briefly: QuickTime Windows update, Apple Q3 call announced

06/30, 9:30pm

In addition to an avalanche of updates ranging from major to security-patches-only, Apple has released QuickTime 7.7.7 for Windows, the first update to the multimedia technology since early April. The update fixes a clutch of security issues with the QT Media Foundation, which could allow a maliciously-crafted file to lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. The root cause of the issue, multiple memory corruption issues, were addressed through improved memory handling.

Hands On: White Noise 5.8 (iOS, OS X, Android)

06/30, 6:57pm

Remember those scenes in the 1992 comedy Cousin Vinny, where Joe Pesci's character couldn't sleep in the rural quiet of the small country town he was visiting. He didn't get a good night's rest until somebody sent him a recording of his New York neighborhood at night. Noise can either keep you awake, or lull you to sleep. White Noise by TMsoft is an app that provides ambient soundscapes, paired with an alarm clock and the ability to record and loop our own "perfectly quiet" environment sounds. We tried out White Noise for iOS on our iPhone 5, and we were often surprised and delighted by the experience.

Sprint launches 'All-In' plan that limits video stream bandwidth

06/30, 6:26pm

Sprint has launched a new price plan today that it hopes will make the cost of the service simpler to subscribers signing up to it. At the same time, the carrier has also come under fire for including a policy in the "All-In" plan's small print, limiting the amount of data transferred for specific types of network traffic, a move which some may consider to be against the basic principles of net neutrality.

Mac users seeing request to upgrade to unreleased iTunes 12.2 [u]

06/30, 4:53pm

[Update: iTunes 12.2 now released at 6PM ET] While iOS users are experiencing changes related to Apple Music, Mac users are also seeing things fall into place, but at a far slower pace. Before Mac users will be able to use Apple Music and listen to Beats 1, they will have to upgrade iTunes from the current version 12.1.2 to version 12.2 -- an update which is currently unavailable to download by users, and is conspicuous by its absence on a day when Apple has overloaded it servers with a plethora of major, minor, and security updates.
