Nice iOS 10 wish list video posted by MacStories founder +Federico Viticci. Also they have opened up a MacStories Lounge channel on Telegram. I downloaded the Telegram app and it's pretty cool. Don't know if I will use it for anything other than MacStories Lounge.


iOS 10 concept.(Full-res) I almost can't believe there was a time when the iPad didn't have Split View. Or that, for years, I thought Apple would never bring split-screen multitasking to iOS. More than any other iOS update before, iOS 9 has fundamentally reinvented the role of the iPad in my computing life. As I've […]

I would definitely like the "Dark Mode" - I prefer a  black background to the traditional white of Apple.
Yeah, Telegram - I don't see a need for it currently but I would never say never.

As details trickle out

I'm not sure who/what to believe anymore 🤔😱😂

Also read: http://iphone.appleinsider.com/articles/16/04/07/fbi-cant-unlock-anything-newer-than-the-iphone-5c-comey-reveals


Late yesterday Patently Apple posted a report titled 'President Obama Withholds Support for Encryption Legislation." In that report we noted that "The FBI isn't keeping its new iPhone attack secret from everyone. The FBI has already briefed Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) on the methods used to break into the iPhone at the center of Apple's recent legal fight. So what was revealed to the two Senators? Today we get a partial answer.

Here's the Sherlock Holmes portrayal that hooked me into the Sherlockian world in my teens: Ian Richardson who starred in TV movie versions of HOUN & SIGN. If memory serves me right, I believe they may have initially been shown in the USA on HBO.

Soon after seeing these portrayals, I cajoled my father into a special order of The Complete Sherlock Holmes in one volume (similar to volume in the included picture). Unfortunately, I lost that sentimental keepsake due to some minor flooding a few yeas ago.

On a brighter note, I recently purchased these adaptations on DVD and the flood of wonderful memories that have come flowing back are to be treasured.

This FBI nonsense may be the best thing to ever happen for  security!


As FBI tensions escalate, one of the architects of Signal will be an Apple intern as of this summer.

Agree completely, while we watch the new Steve Jobs movie on our Apple TV. 🎬

Scary, illogical thought

"The question is, to live in a civilized society, in a free society, and you want justice, you have to give up some of your liberties. And this is one that I think is reasonable for you to give up,"

Where we stop...nobody knows! Maybe we can give away all our liberties so we can live in perfect peace!

Apparently justice can't be had without relinquishing liberties. Too bad nobody told the framers of the Constitution & Bill of Rights. Ugh

iPhone selfie lighting issues

Just call me "pinhead". That's what happens when you're a selfie rookie. My daughter can't stop laughing and the concert is about to begin!

A Win?

I've become skeptical of a lot of things about our government spooks since the revelation of the scope of domestic surveillance programs like PRISM. This morning I'm skeptical: that the FBI didn't have a 3rd party solution at its disposal from the beginning, that it ever truly needed Apple's help to get the data, and that it was just concerned with this one phone.

Clearly, the Feds backed down when their emotional plea (they intentionally waited for a sensitive case...terrorism) didn't result in an overwhelming public relations win despite their efforts with blogging and appearing on late night tv to pitch their case.

In the legal world, you play not only to win but also to not lose. If there's a chance you lose a case that could set a precedent, you back off. The Feds backed off in this case, but only to try another tactic in the future. Privacy is a right about which we will have to remain vigilant.

It's amazing that an American company has to go to such lengths to secure its own equipment from its own government. This sounds like something that would've happened in the old Soviet bloc.


Apple may design its own servers to avoid government snooping | ExtremeTech
Apple is reportedly considering building its own servers to keep the government from intercepting and infecting them with various kinds of malware. Such a move would almost certainly raise the stakes in the company's ongoing battle with the FBI and NSA.

A Win

for Apple in the New York case mentioned as a side-story to the more publicized San Bernadino terror case. Key part of judge's rejection of the government's case:

“Nothing in the government's arguments suggests any principled limit on how far a court may go in requiring a person or company to violate the most deeply rooted values to provide assistance to the government the court deems necessary,”

The decision sets the stage for a bruising battle between the Apple and the FBI on Capitol Hill.

Taking a break from posting about the Apple vs FBI fight, here's a terrific little pro tip on how to save to PDF right from the print function in the share sheet. It requires the iPhone 6S as it involves using 3D Touch, but I have to say it's a really cool functionality and use of 3D Touch. 
Printing to PDF with 3D Touch. Note: this tip was first shared with Club MacStories members over a month ago in issue 16 of MacStories Weekly. We are sharing it today as a one-off sample. Subscribe now and don't miss out on more iOS tips and workflows. A hidden option of iOS' Print feature I've […]

The terrific MacStories has published a set of links to some excellent tech articles regarding the ongoing Apple vs Feds dispute. I've read a few already and this is some great reading on the topic.

Always in search of Truth
Introduction
Bio: Father of four and husband.  I grew up in Salamanca, NY and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor in Accounting from SUNY Fredonia.  I'm a little north of 40 and an unapologetic product of the 80's. Faith: A follower of Christ, I believe in being active within the Body and serve as our local church treasurer and on the board.  Biblical studies, especially digging into the Hebrew and Greek texts, are a treasured pursuit. Tech: An avowed techie, I enjoy anything relating to computers and mobile devices / gadgets.. iPhone owner.  Community: I'm very active in our local Little League program.  Besides assisting in running tournaments, I enjoy being the guy that nobody loves: the umpire.   History:  I have a keen interest in the American Revolutionary War and the nation's Founding, along with history in general.  Currently president of our local chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, I've tied this interest to another hobby of mine, genealogy.  Sports: I've grown up watching my beloved Yankees and the hometown Bills and Sabres.  I attend all the Bills home games, suffering through the last decade of futility that began with the infamous Music City Miracle forward lateral! Sherlockian: A boyhood obsession with the Sherlock Holmes stories has been rekindled as an adult. I love Sherlockian scholarship and am a proud member of the local Holmes society: An Irish Secret Society at Buffalo. Espresso: Coffee is one of my true passions.  Everything about the "bean" fascinates me: the story behind the growing process, the brewing methods, and the people.  For me, espresso is where it's at, and I am the designated home barista for the neighborhood.  With my trusty Rancilio Rocky and Silvia setup, I'm able to replicate (if I'm lucky) some of the results from even the better cafes I frequent when out of town. I've branched out to the Kalita Wave pourover system to produce fantastic cups of coffee. Physics: I love to read articles and books that touch on the expanding understanding of our world through physics.  I like to follow today's theoretical advances to see if they will be experimentally verified.  The ability to deeply understand the universe we inhabit is one of the greatest gifts we have been given.

I've seen every NFL team play a regular season game in person. I also attended the game where A-Rod slammed his 500th HR, although that probably deserves an asterisk at this point.
