PSA: Bitcasa ending unlimited cloud storage, data will be deleted if not migrated by 15th Nov

9 to 5 Mac - Apple Intelligence - 2 hours 9 min ago

The (almost) free lunch promised by Bitcasa of unlimited cloud storage for just $99/year is coming to an end, and the company has also informed users that they will need to manually migrate all data to a new backend by 15th November or it will be deleted.

Bitcasa was able to offer low-cost “infinite storage” because it figured that most users would have only a relatively small proportion of unique content. As I mentioned in my comparative review:

The company estimates that most people have no more than 25GB of unique content on their computers, the rest – music, movies, etc – being content held in common with other people. For that data, Bitcasa stores only one copy of the file, with the rest of our backups containing a pointer to it.

But, says, Bitcasa, some people have been “abusing” the facility, which seems to be a reference to businesses storing large quantities of data in what is supposed to be a personal account.

While that may seem understandable, what is rather less so is giving users such a short time to migrate their data before it is lost, especially when the company’s support document recommends that people do this one folder at a time.

We recommend that you do not drag all your files and folders at once. Instead, drag one folder at a time and wait for it to complete before moving onto the next file/folder.

Those on unlimited subscriptions are being offered a choice of 1TB for the same $99/year, or 10TB for a rather eye-watering $999/year. The company says that only 0.5% of its subscribers have more than 1TB of data.

Tim Cook talks Apple Pay, Apple Watch and security on final day in China

9 to 5 Mac - Apple Intelligence - 2 hours 15 min ago

On the final day of Tim Cook’s four-day visit to China, he told state news agency Xinhuanet that Apple Pay was top of the list of things the company wanted to take to China.

“China is a really key market for us,” said the CEO. “Everything we do, we are going to work it here. Apple Pay is on the top of the list.”

Cook said that Apple would be working to understand the steps needed to bring the new service to China before meeting with local carriers, banks and merchants …

Cook also said that people would find the Apple Watch to be a must-have product.

“We are going to wonder how we ever lived without it,” said Cook, “That’s the real test of a great product: you wonder how you live without it. And I think that’s going to happen to the Apple Watch.”

Asked about Wednesday’s meeting with Chinese premier Ma Kai, in which Cook is believed to have delicately raised the issue of an iCloud phishing attack alleged to have involved the Chinese government firewall, the Apple CEO said only that the discussion had been “very open,” “fascinating” and “impressive.”

It was also revealed that the iPhone worker he spoke with at the Foxconn factory had been taking part in Apple’s Supplier Employee Education and Development (SEED) program, in which employees are offered free courses in English, computing and other topics.

Cómo aumentar el contraste en OS X Yosemite 10.10

Soy de Mac - 2 hours 50 min ago

El nuevo OS X Yosemite nos adentra en un mundo de opciones nuevas que pueden ser realmente útiles para los usuarios que nos gusta ‘cacharrear’ un poco la interfaz de nuestro nuevo OS X para cambiar o mejorar algunos aspectos. Apple nos por las cosas fáciles y no es necesario ser un experto para llevar a cabo estos pequeños cambios en las transparencias o en el contraste de nuestra pantalla, así que vamos a ver esta posibilidad con más detalle, para que sirve y la manera de activarla.

No todos los usuarios somos iguales y es evidente que los cambios en la interfaz de OS X Yosemite pueden gustar más o gustar menos, pero al menos podemos retocar estas pequeñas cosas en nuestro Mac para hacerlo un poco más personalizado a nuestro estilo y gusto. También existen herramientas de terceros para llevar a cabo pequeños cambios en la interfaz de nuestro OS X Yosemite como cDock.

Apple lo pone fácil si queremos aumentar el contraste del texto en nuestro Mac la tarea no es para nada complicada, de hecho está en las mismas opciones donde activamos y desactivamos las transparencias, así que veamos cómo activarlo. Lo primero es acceder al menú Preferencias del Sistema y después pulsar en Accesibilidad. Ahora en las opciones de Pantalla pulsamos sobre Aumentar contraste y listo.

Ahora se producen dos cambios significativos, el primero es que la posibilidad de activar y desactivar las transparencias se desactiva de forma automática y ya no es posible modificarlo (se queda en ese tono gris claro) vamos que se suprimen. Lo demás evidentemente es que cuando abrimos una ventana veremos un mayor contraste en el texto, aquí un ejemplo:

Ahora con el contraste activado:

Se puede ver el cambio en el texto además de los cambios en las transparencias de las ventanas y el Dock.

Former Apple retail head Ron Johnson raises $30M for intriguing online shopping startup

9 to 5 Mac - Apple Intelligence - 3 hours 15 min ago

Ron Johnson, who headed up Apple’s retail operations for almost 12 years, has raised $30M in funding for an intriguing-sounding online shopping service due to launch next year, reports the WSJ.

The new company is called Enjoy, and Mr. Johnson says its goal is to change the way people buy and use the “things that matter” in a world in which consumers start their shopping online [...]

Johnson is not giving much away about what Enjoy will offer, but said that it’s designed to help bridge the gap between offline and online shopping for more complex and expensive products.

Enjoy aims to help shoppers develop a connection with new products, in the way that Apple Stores let shoppers try its products. For example, Mr. Johnson said it is hard for customers to understand the capabilities of a new product like a GoPro camera from shopping online.

The Apple background doesn’t end with Johnson, who was SVP of Retail Operations from January 2000 to November 2011: he’s also brought on board Jerry McDougal, a former retail VP at Apple, and creative director Tom Suiter, who played a key role in the iMac campaigns and in-store graphics for Apple Stores.

WhatSize 6.0.8 - Find out what files are taking up all your HD space. (Demo)

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 3 hours 32 min ago


WhatSize allows you to quickly measure the size in bytes of a given folder and all subfolders and files within it. You would be surprised at how many useless files might be laying around on your hard disks. The files and folders are automatically sorted by size, with the biggest sizes first. WhatSize helps find out what files are taking up all of that space. Then it makes it really easy to remove or move those files. You'd be surprised how many useless files are lying around on your Mac's hard disk.

While the app is measuring a folder the user can browse the files within that folder and immediately see the size in bytes. Hidden files, cache files, directories will all show up with their corresponding size. This application is similar to the ancient NeXTSTEP, DarkForest.

Once the measuring of a folder has ended the user can also view the information by filtering for particular file sizes or types. The user can also move unwanted files and folder in the corresponding Trash bin similar to the Finder's Delete button.



Version 6.0.8: Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated.

Developer says Apple sent them pornographic image when rejecting app

9 to 5 Mac - Apple Intelligence - 3 hours 44 min ago

Apple’s developer guidelines on explicit content

An iOS developer said Apple demonstrated that their app could be used to surf for porn by sending them a screenshot containing a pornographic image. Carl Smith shared the story of the rejection of Wave, an app for browsing Instagram and public images, in a blog post.

It turns out Apple thought the best way to tell us our app could be used to surf porn was to surf for porn using our app. Then send us some pictures and say take a look at these! Except they said, “Please see the attached screenshot for more information.” So with no warning [...]

They sent us a picture of a guy masturbating.

The explicit image was attached to an email rejecting the app on the basis that the process for flagging inappropriate content was inadequate … 

With great irony, Apple’s email contained no warning that the attachment was pornographic.

But no, they just sent porn to our employees without warning. Porn that our employees found offensive.

A censored version of the photo appears at the bottom of the blog post.

Apple has guidelines for reviewers asking them to help developers understand the reason an app has been rejected by illustrating with screenshots where possible, but we suspect this particular example may contravene another Apple guideline or two …
