This includes fixing a problem that caused some matched tracks to be listed as Apple Music tracks by mistake.
I installed the update, and it hasn’t fixed anything for me.
If you’re subscribed to Apple Music, why does the Store only play previews, not the full song?— Ben Millett (@benmillett) July 13, 2015
We don’t need managers to impose time discipline upon us—we do it ourselves because we’re so busy. It seems the only option in the face of the demand-and-expectation tsunami hitting us each day. So we schedule and cram our time, squeezing all the efficiency we can out of each day. Time management, we believe, is the solution to our busyness: if we could organize our time better, we’d be less overwhelmed, happier, and more effective. We are completely wrong on all three counts, and it’s damaging our lives and our careers.
Dr. Steiner-Adair is especially concerned about parental failure to pay full attention to their children “at critical times of the day, like when taking children to and from school. This should be a cell-free zone for everyone — no Bluetooth for parents or devices for the kids. The pickup from school is a very important transitional time for kids, a time for them to download their day. Parents shouldn’t be saying, ‘Wait a minute, I have to finish this call.’ ”
Likewise, she said, when parents come home from work, “they should walk in the door unplugged and use the first hour they’re home as time to reconnect with the family. Kids hate the phrase ‘just checking’ that parents frequently use to justify a very rude, infuriating behavior.”
Nine months after its release in the U.S., Apple Pay will be available to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch users in the UK on Tuesday, local time, with support from more than 250,000 retail locations and eight major banks.
It seems Apple Pay's UK debut didn't go off without a hitch on Tuesday, as HSBC customers are not able to use service despite the bank's status as an official launch partner. In a related development, Barclays did an about face and announced upcoming support for Apple's contactless payment solution.
Here’s a brilliant – and infuriatingly addictive – way to lose a few hours in the app-osphere: the new (and free!) iPhone and iPad app from London Sinfonietta and Touchpress dedicated to Steve Reich’s Clapping Music. OK, so it’s not based on a behemoth of classical music like the Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony app, one of Touchpress’s previous iOS blockbusters, but Clapping Music is arguably an even better fit for interactive technology.
This update adds a new kind of brush stroke called Dynamic Touch, which simulates pressure sensitivity by examining the size of the finger input that touches the screen. Larger surface area produces thicker strokes on the canvas. Similarly, using just the tip of a finger results in fine lines in the app.
With the Internet running out of standard 32-bit IP addresses (known as IPv4), the switch to IPv6 – which offers 128-bit addresses – has been quietly underway for some time. Apple says this work has now progressed sufficiently for IPv6 to be considered mainstream, and it is prioritizing the use of the new addressing system in the public betas of both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11.
I’ve been hesitant to write this post because I worried people wouldn’t want to hear from a company that just went through layoffs. But, I hope someone will get value from hearing what we went through. I had never been through layoffs so I didn’t know what to expect.
I want to focus on the obligations that quickly emerged once we decided to shut down this part of our business.
From our perspective, we the computer scientists and mathematicians, the central obstacle is still that we don’t have a good definition of fairness.
Those affiliate groups, which include Tribune and Sinclair, are being told by the networks that if they opt in and offer their feeds, they will be able to share in the added revenue the Apple streaming product will produce, sources tell The Post.
“Apple has a lot of reach and this is a good opportunity,” said one network source.
