There are nearly as many ways to save photos to the cloud as there are camera apps in the App Store, but which one is right for you? Figuring it out can be a pain, but don't worry; we're here to break down the core features of eight of the top cloud-storage photo services (and warn you of any caveats to be aware of) including Adobe Revel, Shutter, Flickr, and more — and then decide which one is the best.
New Apple Watch info has been making the rounds recently, but this week was more about the cool and creative things going on in the world of Apple: turning your iPhone into an infrared camera, seeing an iPhone launched into space, and conceptual renders of a Mac that blends modern and classic sensibilities. We guess strapping iPhones to every part of your body is creative, too, but not in a good way.
CES is now behind us, but news associated with the show is still rolling in, such as how we'll need to own an Apple TV if we expect to use Siri to interact with HomeKit-compatible devices remotely. Elsewhere, we learn about some smuggling antics in China and Xiaomi's struggles with copycatting, as well as Apple's rankings on Flickr and new support for the Apple Watch in the iOS 8.2 beta.
Google's $35 Chromecast has been on a roll lately, adding support for a plethora of new apps and services. VLC users will be happy to know that they aren't being forgotten, with VideoLAN recently confirming in a forum post that Chromecast support is underway for the iOS app, with Mac, Windows, and Linux coming a little further down the line. If that just brightened your day, wait until you read today's recap!
Our Monday recap has at least a few good reasons to celebrate as Apple begins rolling out iTunes Radio abroad, Flickr bakes a cake for its 10th birthday and CBS warms up to Hulu Plus with a gaggle of classic television viewers are sure to love. But wait, there's more -- and you won't even have to order now to get these fine bonuses, folks...
Can it really be that we're at the end of 2013 and Yahoo-owned Flickr is only now getting around to allowing users to embed their photos into websites? That appears to be the case, but better late than never.
In case you didn't notice, Apple's Find My Friends app was updated Tuesday, effectively making the company's transition to iOS 7 styling complete — well, almost. A few of Cupertino's lesser-used apps, such as Keynote Remote, Logic Remote, iTunes Connect Mobile and iAd Gallery are still rocking iOS 6-style icons. Speaking of facelifts, we've got one from a venerable mapping app in today's recap, so let's dive and get started...
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
We’re continuing our series of Terminal 101s focusing on accessing and using Google’s services through the command line. Today, we’ll show you how to use Google’s photo-sharing service, Picasa. Like Flickr, Picasa lets you create albums of photos, tagging them along the way so you can find them later. Today, we’ll show you how to create an album, populate it with your photos, tag them, and even delete them, all through the Terminal.
Now here's an odd twist: AOL's gestating web-based Alto email service appears to be going in reverse, notifying iCloud users that they're dropping support for Apple-based accounts in December. The irony is that the rest of the email world seems to be bending over backward to support millions of iOS device owners, so AOL's move appears to be a bit of a head scratcher indeed. Find out more about it in today's recap!
