BlackBerry World kicked off in Florida today, where RIM finally gave us a peek behind the veil of its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system. Almost immediately, the Canadian handset maker was criticized for not innovating enough, with BB10 described as shades of the late, great webOS and having more in common with iOS and Android than Microsoft’s Windows Phone, which may be the only hope mobile users have for a refreshing new OS. Ready for the rest of the day’s news? Then read on to find out what’s making headlines for Tuesday, May 1, 2012.
For the past few years, whenever I launch iPhoto, I get a popup that there are “3 photos that have not been recovered.” This happens without any devices plugged in to my Mac, and there are no photos displayed in the recovery window. What can I do to correct this problem?
March is rapidly winding to a close, but it continues to be an eventful month full of software updates (Retina Display and otherwise) and Apple-centric news galore, which today includes the release of audit results from Apple’s controversial manufacturing at Foxconn, as well as a detailed study on Cupertino’s tactical moves in the smartphone patent wars against Android. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to reading the news for this Thursday, March 29, 2012.
Slideshows are a great way to show off your pictures, and they’re really easy to set up in iPhoto. There’s a range of preset themes to choose from which take care of all the settings. The presets are good, but they can be a little overpowering. Fortunately you can set up slideshows manually and have more control over the final result.
Apple’s pro audio users were blessed with a couple of software updates on Tuesday, while a “highly reliable source” claims that Cupertino is hard at work putting a new iPhoto 9.2.3 patch on the fast track to address stability issues with this month’s update.
We made the move to a Mac last October and we love it so far. There’s just one big problem: we cannot produce high-quality prints from within iPhoto. We have an Epson Stylus RX620 printer, and have the latest drivers installed on the Mac. Do I need a new printer that is more compatible with the Mac? Or is there some other way that I can get the highest quality prints from iPhoto?
Boy, those new iPads sure are hot stuff, huh? Hot selling items that seriously get hot when you use them. Apparently Retina Display does come with its prices, and all those pixels generate a lot of heat. So, there's plenty of heat where Cupertino is concerned.
Good googly-moogly, it’s already hump day! And judging from social gaming giant Zynga, it must be a good one for the folks over at OMGPOP, whose popular Draw Something app (and 34 other titles) have just been snapped up in an acquisition. Anyone feeling up to acquiring an overworked tech blogger or two? We work really hard and we don’t require much care and feeding, honest! Well, no takers here, it seems… so let’s get busy spreading the news for this wonderful Wednesday, March 21, 2012.
Apple’s new iPhoto for iOS may be just the thing you’re looking for to sprinkle fairy dust magic across your digital images, but you’ll still have to do some of the heavy lifting yourself, particularly when using the brush tools. Here’s what you can do -- and how to get started using them on your own iPad 2 or new iPad.
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...
