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!
Has it really been 16 years since Yahoo! unveiled its own brand of email upon the world? Indeed it has, and the company isn't taking its sweet 16 for granted, with a massive overhaul of the entire experience on desktop and mobile.
There's still no official native iPad version, but the folks at Yahoo! today unveiled a significant update to the Flickr iPhone app, which takes direct aim at Instagram with tons of new filters and gives away pro editing features.
As if Apple's "mission statement" video that kicked off WWDC 2013 wasn't already a good indication, Cupertino is stepping up its efforts to show how its products affect users, rather than focusing on specific features as rivals such as Samsung continue to do. You can see what we mean in today's recap, which also details a few products disappearing off the radar. Find out why!
