Hands On: iTunes U 3.0 (iOS)

06/25, 4:12pm

You know that MacNN likes to go the extra mile and stress-test, even pummel every application that gets a Hands On review. It's not enough to tell us a list of features, we want to see that those features do what they say they will. It's partly diligence, partly that we've been fooled by Windows software before. Apple today updated its iTunes U educational service and iOS to version 3.0, and made some notable changes -- and this obviously requires that we join a university that uses the software so that we can fully partake of the semester-long new features.

[Updated with comment from Apple] Apple has passively addressed the Confederate flag ban issue on the iOS and Mac App Stores, and has removed nearly every entertainment title with it in the application's iconography or preview graphics.

Living without the iMac

06/25, 11:00am

If you've got a 27-inch iMac that you bought between December of 2012 and September of 2013, go check out whether Apple wants it back. As MacNN reported, Apple has a new replacement program running to fix hard drive problems in some unspecified number of those machines. Do it now: it doesn't matter if your warranty or AppleCare is finished but you must do it now because the program will not last. You'll need your Mac's serial number and you'll need to head to this Apple support page. We did –– and right now, our precious iMac is off on a courier's van.

06/25, 9:45am

We are often going camping and taking technology with us. While we always do our best to take good care of our things regardless of our proximity to nature, it didn't strike us that maybe we need better protection for our mobile devices until we dropped one of our tablets in the mud.
