Of the various cloud storage services out there, we're most partial to Dropbox. The interface is simple, the uploads fairly quick, and the app works beautifully. Plus, with their open API, Dropbox can sync with tons of our other apps and software making it our number one floating hard drive. Today, it seems, is update day.
If you’re a FileMaker Go user, your hump day just got a little bit brighter: Apple subsidiary FileMaker, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of a 1.1 update to both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad versions of FileMaker Go which bring some welcome new features.
On the heels of a survey this week that claims most iPhone users in the U.S. are perfectly content to stick with AT&T should Apple’s handset wind up with other carriers, the telco’s CEO also appears to be thinking, “Don’t worry, be happy.”
Some of us here at Mac|Life headquarters have a penchant for loud, dancey music. Sometimes, those beat-ific artists have special mixes that are not yet available for purchase in the iTunes or Amazon MP3 store, which is really unfortunate. But then we'll find a YouTube video of the song (usually paired up with a static visual of the artist) and repeatedly groove to that downloaded FLV file, though this process can become a bit tiresome overtime. What if we want to take the song with us on the go and load it up on our iPods? Fortunately, that's what audio extractors are for, especially free ones.
Read along to find out how to extract the audio from your FLV files, and keep the music alive.
If you're looking for a feel-good story that provides a view into the advantages of paying for a MobileMe account, travel, intrigue kind-hearted airline employees and evil-doers, we'd suggest taking a trip over to CNN's website. They've posted a story that details the epic saga of a young family who, thanks to MobileMe's Find My iPhone service and the actions of a Southwest Airlines manager, were able to recover a forgotten iPad from the other side of the country.
If you listen closely, you can hear the drums of war beating once again. Follow the sound on the wind and you'll be led to the faraway land of Cupertino where it's clear that Apple is none too pleased with Sanho Corporation, makers of the increasingly popular line of HyperMac external battery products for just about every Apple product under the sun. It seems that Apple's beef stems from the fact that many of the products from the HyperMac line include MagSafe adapters for connecting to power-hungry MacBooks, MacBook Pros and MacBook Air. In addition, they also utilize Apple's 30-pin dock connector to move juice from their batteries on to every iOS device under the sun. This might not be an issue if Sanho had asked permission to do so. However, as you may have guessed by now, they didn't.
While the world waits and wonders if a Verizon iPhone even exists -- a game we’ve been playing since 2007 when the device first launched -- a new survey suggests that AT&T might have less to worry about from losing its exclusivity than previously thought.
iOS App Store piracy could be right around the corner for non-jailbroken devices if the source code of a new iPhone app falls into the wrong hands.
