Apple’s Logic Pro X update shows just how powerful the new Mac Pro is

Apple has released an updated version of Logic Pro X, its professional music production software. The software is now souped up to show off the capabilities of the new Mac Pro, with improved responsiveness and a huge increase in the amount of tracks it can support in a project file.

The man who predicted Antennagate is no longer at Apple

Apple’s had a few public embarrassments in recent years — AirPower, the MacBook’s unreliable butterfly keyboard, and the iPhone slowdown saga come to mind — but it’s been a minute since since the original tech scandal of “Antennagate,” when the iPhone 4 had a tendency to drop calls if you held it in certain ways. Today, The Information is reporting (and AppleInsider is corroborating) that Apple VP of engineering and wireless specialist Rubén Caballero has left the company, which is notable for a couple of reasons. First, The Information reports he was the driving force behind Apple’s in-house 5G modem…

Is social media addiction breaking up marriages in UAE?

Top reasons for divorce included infidelity, lack of communication, job loss, social media, and unrealistic expectations. Social media addiction is taking a toll on family life, with husbands and wives glued to their phones instead of interacting with each other and their children. And, according to a judicial official in Abu Dhabi, this lack of real communication at home has been leading to disputes ­and, worse, divorce. Dr Saeed Al Darmaki, director of family guidance and alternative solutions at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, said they were witnessing a high…

Apple Watch FlickType Gesture Keyboard App Makes Typing A Breeze: Is It Any Good?

A screen as small as an Apple Watch is not designed for written interactions. That didn’t stop rival manufacturers, like Will.i.am and his Dial smartcuff from including a tiny QWERTY onscreen, for instance. But it was hard to type accurately on such a small set of letters. FlickType on Apple Watch, before you type the first letter.DAVID PHELAN So, the recent release of FlickType, a free Apple Watch app, a few months ago, added considerable versatility to the Watch.

For some people, their phone is the only computer they need

I’m writing this blog post from my phone. Well, not completely from my phone as there’s a bit of formatting needed that’s just too difficult to do without a keyboard no matter how much Zanax there is in the world. But I’ve written enough of it to say that I did it from a phone and not feel like I’m bending the truth. 60 minutes of working from a phone and I call uncle. I’m not cut out for it. Why I’m doing it from my phone is something I want to…

Computer Science Demand Is Soaring Due To Tech Bubble 2.0

A team of young computer programmers. Photo credit: GettyGETTY For the past several years, I’ve been warning that the tech startup boom (and the surge of interest in “coding”) is actually a dangerous bubble that is driven by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s ultra-loose monetary policies since the Great Recession. A recent New York Times piece called “The Hard Part of Computer Science? Getting Into Class” describes how young people are clamoring to study computer science: Lured by the prospect of high-salary, high-status jobs, college students are rushing in record numbers to…

After single use plastics, smartphone hoarding is the new habit we need to break

The plastic ban is here Let’s be honest, saying goodbye can be hard. And judging from our behaviour, that sentiment even rings true when it comes to parting ways with our old smartphones. Australians are holding on to their old phones for longer, rather than refurbishing or recycling them — and it’s having real environmental consequences. Nearly half (45 per cent) of Australians intend to recycle their old device but this motivation drops off with only one in 10 actually following through, according to new research by MobileMuster, Australia’s government-accredited…
