Gaming and television seem to be where the smart money hangs out these days, plus it just happens to be the focus of more than a couple of the hottest stories this week. As Apple TV owners, we just wish Cupertino could move a little faster on some much needed app integration. Meanwhile, what else is going on?
Publishers continue to flock to Apple's iOS platform, and this week The New Yorker finally arrives thanks to Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite, along with an update to The Washington Post which adds a host of new features. But before you go sauntering off to read those, why not spend a few more minutes on MacLife.com and soak in the day's news for this terrific Tuesday, August 7, 2012?
We love our second-generation Apple TV (that's the black one), but mostly because we've hacked it with aTV Flash to add Plex, the media server client software that pretty much smokes Apple's own. But with the aTV Flash 1.7 update this week, Plex is gone, and now we're sad.
June has finally arrived, and with it comes a tidal wave of tech news for what’s generally a pretty lazy last day of the work week. We can’t report on everything, but we’ve managed to distill the day down to the five coolest stories you won’t want to miss -- so adjust your seats into a launch position and let’s dive right into this freaky Friday, June 1, 2012.
The Apple TV may continue to be a hobby for Apple, but it’s serious business for the folks at FireCore, LLC who offer the Seas0nPass and aTV Flash tools, which make it possible to make the little media player boxes learn some new tricks. The company has just pushed out aTV Flash (black) version 1.3, adding automated firmware backups and a host of new features.
Struggling to get through this mid-week “hump day” and coast into the weekend? Well, how about a gaggle of app-related news to get you all excited -- that’s exactly what we have for you today! Distraction-free web browsing dukes it out with Readability going free while Evernote Clearly adds the capability to Chrome, aTV Flash (black) hits version 1.0 and there are new iOS app updates for AIM, Camera+ and Gmail ready to be downloaded. Without further ado, here’s all the app news for Wednesday, November 16, 2011.
Second-generation Apple TV users, your little black box just got a lot cooler. FireCore has just pushed out a beta 7 update to its popular aTV Flash (black), which brings a host of new abilities to Apple’s otherwise locked-down media streamer -- including cloud backups for third-party settings, music playback and metadata views.
One of the great things about Apple’s second-generation Apple TV is that the software running it is based on the same iOS used in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad -- meaning that jailbreaking the box and installing cool stuff is only a few clicks away. If you think that requires a computer science degree, think again.
