As simple as the concept might appear, approaches to today’s playlists are varied in a way that’s reminiscent of music itself. Computer algorithms or human curators? Editorial professionals or amateur compilers? Lesser-known upstarts or major-label stars? “The new radio,” as some have gushed, or just the latest repackaging of old formats? How it all shakes out could have long-term ramifications for the music-listening and music-making alike.
Ultimately, the best solution for me—and I stress, for me—has proved to be Numbers, for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s already on all my Macs and iOS devices. Secondly, while it may not be on par with the likes of Excel, it is remarkably powerful. And thirdly, well, it’s pretty and has a pretty gradual learning curve.
One thing I left out of my earlier post about iCloud Drive’s file deletion issue—but which is mentioned in the original source of the link—is that you can actually recover deleted files on iCloud Drive. But it’s not an obvious feature, because you can’t do it from the Finder, where iCloud Drive lives, or from your iOS device.
Coda 2.0 also introduces Panic Sync, for keeping your sites, clips, and credentials up to date between devices.
The text editor has added support for .DOCX file export, as well as several new options for backup to keep your work safe.
All in all, I’d say that — especially in Word, Excel and PowerPoint — the benefits of parity with Windows outweighs the loss of Mac distinctiveness. But unless you use Exchange, you might want to skip Outlook and use another email client, until Microsoft makes it friendly to people not employed at Goldman Sachs.
It’s an oft-repeated adage that with a camera phone, anyone can make a movie, but few filmmakers have lived up to the potential of the phrase quite like Sean Baker. His film Tangerine, the story of two friends who also happen to be transgender prostitutes, wowed audiences at Sundance and won over critics in the past few weeks with its theatrical release.
The ruling, from U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco, is part of a 2013 lawsuit alleging Apple should compensate thousands of store employees for the time taken to search their bags to ensure they did not steal any merchandise.
The entire universe of Chinese songs are classified into just two generes in Apple Music: Mandarin and Cantonese.
The job listing is for a “Program Manager, Search Engine Optimization.” The description of the job makes it clear that this is about marketing.
That it isn’t really an elephant — and I won’t tell you what it is — is of a perfect, witty piece with these performers’ self-dismissing, self-deconstructing style. In theory, a Penn and Teller show is spoiler-proof because they make a point of spoiling their own deceptions, and even encourage you to go online to find out more about them, but they are also showmen to their toes who like to surprise stylishly.
