Sharing files between Macs and NAS drives and Windows PC’s has always been very easy, but Mavericks brought a slight change that has caused some problems for certain users in mixed PC and Mac environments.

Despite their slim and delicate appearance, Apple’s iDevices are pretty tough. I have dropped my iPad mini from to top of the fridge onto a tiled floor with no real damage – just a dented corner. In fact, in the five years that I have owned iDevcies, I have broken one screen, and that was [...]

Apple may not be snapping up big companies all over the place like Yahoo!, but it is buying lots of shares in one major corporation â€” itself. Last quarter, the Cupertino company spent $16 billion on 36 million of its own shares, which cost, on average, just over $444 apiece. That’s according to calculations made [...]

AAPL shares have dropped below $ 400 in early morning trading on Monday. The DOW and NASDAQ both opened to big losses as they dropped 220 points and 53 points.
The share price drop may also be due in part to a report this morning that Apple has significantly reduced iPhone orders for the remainder of 2013. AAPL shares dropped below $ 400 in April for the first time in over 16 [Read More...]
Last year it seemed like there was no end in sight for the rise of Apple’s stock price. Then things started to slip in October thanks to Apple Maps and the management shakeup, and it’s been all downhill from there.
Earlier this morning Apple shares were trading below $ 400 for the first time in over 16 months, as the stock has continued to slide from its high point of over $ [Read More...]
Dropcopy is a super simple clipboard sharing app which uses Dropbox for its storage. It comes in iOS (universal) and OS X flavors, and is almost as simple as copying on one device and pasting on the other. And because it uses Dropbox you can – theoretically – dive in and edit the raw snippets.
The Mac version is currently under review in the App Store, but the iOS app is already [Read More...]
The promise is simple: Take a small box, stuff in some flash memory and a Wi-Fi radio, and make the contents of that flash storage available to any device on the network via a web browser.
That’s the Packetta from King Jim – a USB dongle which would be just about ideal were it not for a few deficiencies.
The Packetta comes in 8GB and 16GB sizes, and is powered by USB (no battery). It requires [Read More...]
Apple shares took a tumble today, with a over six percent loss, making this the largest stock drop in a single day, making it the biggest one in four years. Analysts and other investors are blaming the sell-off and resulting stock price drop on many factors, including a recent forecast by an influential firm that Google’s Android operating system continues to gain ground, as well as unconfirmed reports that at least one [Read More...]
Apple’s new Lightning connector is the perfect accompaniment to the Thunderbolt port, but the trademark hasn’t always been owned by the Cupertino company. In fact, it had to “partially” acquire it from motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson, which uses it to cover motorcycle parts, protective helmets, and turn signals.
Patently Apple discovered the Lightning trademark applications in the EU Patent & Trademark Office [Read More...]
