While no one wants to see tragedy on the scale of what happened last week in Japan, it’s heartening to see how people can come together in the wake of such events, with Apple’s retail stores in the country helping offer solace.
While AT&T hasn’t had much to say about the iPhone 4’s new Personal Hotspot feature since it was unveiled in January with the Verizon model, the company has finally broken its silence and confirmed that the feature will indeed work with next week’s iOS 4.3 update.
You don't have to feel singled out because you didn't go the way of the iPhone. It's okay that you made this choice--Mac|Life supports your decision to side with Google in the mobile wars (well, at least until your contract is up...um, right? Kidding!). And while you may already be privy to all the popular, cross platform apps like Evernote, Meebo and the official Yelp app, there are a select few other Android apps there that can make your experience a little more Mac-like, without the need to sacrifice your open source loving ways.
It’s not likely that existing AT&T iPhone 4 owners were too jealous when Verizon announced they were getting the device -- at least not until the company showed off the new Mobile Hotspot feature. As it turns out, if you happen to be running a beta of iOS 4.3, you can access it from AT&T as well.
Rumors and reports, hype and excitement, two sides to two different coins, but ones always in evidence when it comes to new Apple products and refreshes of the old. As we get closer and closer to the usually scheduled release announcements, both coins get hot hot hot on both sides and all around.

It seems like everything's got Wi-Fi these days: smartphones, tablets, weather monitors, baby monitors--even children's toys. More than we'd like to admit it, if it weren't for Wi-Fi, we might not know what's going on at all times of the day.
But there are other uses for Wi-Fi than merely surfing the internet. More specifically, Wi-Fi can be used to stream movies, control your Mac and--hey!--get you on the internet when you're in a far away country. This week, we highlighted three free apps that stream movies between your Macs, let you control iTunes or Apple TV with your iOS device and find a Wi-Fi hotspot in Sweden without even connecting to the internet.
First introduced at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the folks behind AirStash have returned with some new superpowers for their pocketable wireless flash drive, including media streaming and WebDAV support.
I currently have four computers (one Mac G4 and three PCs) wired to a Netgear wireless router. I recently acquired a Mac Pro. Where I want to keep and use the new computer will make running a new cable impractical. I’ve asked several Mac users how to make the computer wireless, but they all have different answers. How does one make a Mac Pro wireless?
The golden days of radio haven’t died – they’ve just... changed. Nowadays, anyone can log on to any number online radio stations and listen to the exact kind of music they want to hear. Unfortunately, this usually limits listening to your computer — or in some cases, your phone. Enter the Grace Allegro Portable Wi-Fi Internet Radio. This bad boy comes with over 17,000 free radio stations, can be used as an alarm, and can even be battery powered making it really, truly portable. In short, you want this.
If you thought that Verizon was just going to prop the iPad up with their other offerings and leave it at that, think again -- the telco has just released their first commercial touting the magic combo of the iPad with MiFi.
