Assuming you're in the mood to close out the year with a bang, there's nothing worse than having absolutely nothing to do on New Year's Eve. But whether you're looking to host something at home or find somewhere to revel in public, the App Store has you covered.
Are you one of those lucky guys or gals that got a shiny new iPad or iPhone for Christmas? We're so happy for you! We also know that in all the excitement of the holidays, there are a few things you might not have gotten around to doing on your new toy. Use this handy checklist to make sure your new device is ready to go as soon as you get back to the real world.
Apple has a history of placing easter eggs -- hidden, and sometimes funny objects, text, or apps -- in their hardware and software over the years. We've compiled a gallery of our favorite easter eggs that have appeared both in Apple hardware and software over the years. Read on and tally off how many you've seen!
Case in point: although the Mac’s market share is rising worldwide -- thanks in no small part to the halo effect of iOS devices -- desktop Macs contributed only $6.4 billion to Apple’s 2011 net sales of $108.2 billion. (Apple’s fiscal year wraps up at the end of September.) Savvy readers will have noticed that the $6.4 billion I cited was for desktop Macs only. MacBooks brought in over $15 billion, with sales up 36 percent over the previous year. While that may sound impressive, the new kid on the block, the iPad, bested all shapes and sizes of MacBooks taken together, earning $20 billion during the year. That’s impressive.
We lead such hectic lives that it’s all too easy to forget an important job until it’s too late. Whether it’s picking up the kids’ new school uniforms, booking the dog into kennels or checking your car insurance, almost every job has a due date and a priority. Each of these little tasks contributes to a much bigger chore: keeping them all in order.
We're hotter than ever rolling into the holidays, but maybe the news has slipped past you in all the heat and hustle and bustle. That's just what we're here for! We catch the stories that you might otherwise miss, and we stick them right in your stocking where you couldn't miss them if you tried.
Christmas Day is just around the corner, and that means one thing for iOS gamers: lots of new iOS owners. Why is that good news? Because companies are crawling over themselves to get a piece of this massive new influx of gamers. So while you might not see a ton of new games releasing this week, all the best older ones are on sale. Set aside some money this year and stock up on games for the next couple months.
Black and white is making a bit of a comeback, and you can create some surprisingly effective black and white images using the adjustment tools and effects in iPhoto. These might look a little basic at first, but the interaction between these two sets of controls is very interesting.
Making a successful film, whether it’s a big Hollywood blockbuster or a home movie, is all about timing. For action sequences with a lot of energy, you need quick, short clips. Longer shots are usually better suited for emotional scenes.
Even though iMovie is aimed at the casual filmmaker, you still have in your hands a powerful tool that is designed to offer you everything you need to edit fast and with precision. The fact that Apple has adopted the general interface for its new version of Final Cut Pro speaks volumes as to its belief that editing this way is easier than any other method invented, until now.
