When Apple first launched iWeb, a new wave of beginners were able to quickly and easily design an attractive website on their Mac and upload it to the web via MobileMe. In recent years, however, iWeb has seen little attention in terms of updates when compared to iLife’s big hitters like iPhoto and iMovie, and MobileMe, along with its web hosting features, has been shut down and replaced by iCloud. The end looks close for iWeb.
Have no fear, however, the online service Squarespace (from $12 a month) provides you with a simple interface which you can write posts and upload images.
I have an iMac at home with all of my downloaded iTunes music, plus Quicken and other apps requiring Rosetta, running on Snow Leopard. I recently purchased a 13-inch MacBook Air running Snow Leopard, and have another iMac for work that came with Lion installed. With MobileMe, I was able to keep all of these machines in sync. However, I’m worried that when MobileMe is completely discontinued, I won’t be able to keep the machines in sync with my iOS devices. I cannot do without my Rosetta apps on Snow Leopard. Will it be possible to keep all of my devices in sync without upgrading to Lion?
iPhoto for iOS introduces a clever new way to share you photos with loved ones courtesy of Journals, a feature which debuted on the mobile app and will presumably arrive on the Mac with the next major update as well. Flummoxed by using Journals? Take a deep breath and read on...
As if Friday wasn’t busy enough for everyone trying to get their hands on a new iPad, developers had an extra treat waiting for them when they returned home: A second beta of the forthcoming OS X Mountain Lion, adding iCloud sync for Safari tabs and requesting permission before accessing contacts.
You can't wait for tomorrow. That new iPad is going to be everything your heart has desired since the first iPad landed in your lap. But before you go out and purchase the whole kit and caboodle, you'll have to do a few things to make sure you can seamlessly move your data over to a new device. Forget starting over from scratch, here's how to properly migrate to the new iPad.
Looking after a big iTunes library can be a problem. We started ripping our CDs in the early days of the iPod when disk space was still at a premium, and as a result a good chunk of our library consists of poor quality, low bitrate MP3s. It’s enormous, too, and fear of losing the lot means we’re constantly spending cash on ever larger hard disks. And then there’s syncing.
Following on the heels of CEO Tim Cook’s updates on Siri, the App Store and iCloud, Apple’s Eddy Cue moves on to discuss the new Apple TV, which brings 1080p video playback from iCloud and a “gorgeous” new interface.
Apple unleashed a blast of new product announcements at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, with a new Retina Display iPad, updated apps and more. Best of all, current users won’t have to wait for these improvements -- some of them are arriving today.
Well, well, well… what have we here? An invitation to a special Apple media event in San Francisco next Wednesday, March 7 at 10am PST. Sounds to us like a new iPad is incoming, although there are also plenty of rumors about a third-generation Apple TV (not the kind with a display, mind you). But hey, maybe we’ll get some improvements to iTunes Match as well, judging from this “adaptive streaming” report below. Here’s a look at the rest of the day’s tech news for Tuesday, February 28, 2012.
Apple takes a break from the voiceovers traditionally used in their television commercials with the new “iCloud Harmony” spot, which offers a quick glimpse into how the free service can enhance the lives of iOS device users. Spending big money to advertise a free product? Priceless.
