Some say Siri has God-like powers.  ;-)
 
"Hey Siri, give us a hint."
The world asks Siri for a hint of what's planned for Apple's September 9 event ... ... and the Universe responds.

#ThingsYouCantAskSiri  "When is the next scheduled  #apple  event?"

On that note, does anyone maintain a subscribable google calendar or similar, for these (future, and ideally past)? It's not fair that our religious cult events aren't in the default set of calendars one can subscribe to for religious holidays like Apple keynotes and the like to look forward to. :-)

This will be a great idea if true. Allows the first generation Apple Watch to remain relevant for a very long time.
The latest rumor regarding the Apple Watch from AppleInsider has given a very good reason to buy one of these devices now! According to a new report from AppleInsider (via Czech website Letem Svetem Applem), Apple is working on adding new health tracking functionalities to the Apple Watch with new “smart band.” These new sensor laden smart bands are expected to connect to the hidden data port on the Apple Watch and will be able to monitor users’ ...

Can anybody explain what does this mean in following passage ?

1)"Design and develop iOS and Android applications, integrate with dynamic web services, and enable distributed networks of devices"

2)"deisgn and develop revolutionary code generation capabilities for mobile devices"

Confusion:
1) enable distributed networks of devices
2) code generation capabilities for mobile devices

Please clarify

Not everything which comes to a browser for a single site will arrive from the same server. A site has a network of servers providing different services and you need to create a cooperative architecture for all of these servers and networks to work in harmony and not clash. Think of what it takes to just verify a credit card identity and you'll realize there are a lot of steps in the process and a wide network of connected devices to consult just to confirm the card's owner.

As to code generation in mobile, this may have more to do with "byte serving" than with any kind of functionally dynamic code. With the wide range of devices (especially in Android's world) and the various implementations of systems, versions, and products it requires that a download for an updated or upgraded piece of software be tailored to suit the particular device making the request. So, if you want the latest version of ISS Tracker from NASA then a special version is complied "on the fly" with dynamic code to generate the special version which will run on your system and device. When you stop to think of the job it takes for a software maker to keep track of all the different versions of devices and systems it's overwhelming and a lot of work. So, if the service that offers the updated software can detect and modify the files for just the version you need it would be a kind of 'code generation' step which would make the experience seamless. This applies to both iOS and to Android as the device market expands and matures.

Hopefully that helps you understand.

If you were thinking of offering your skills in this area it would be a sign of not being qualified if you didn't know what all this meant. I'm certainly not qualified either.

Only advice I would give is to max out the storage. You won't regret it.

The hint is given by the text - "Hey Siri, give us a hint".  
Asking Siri anything in iOS 9 produces the coloured wavy line in the event logo.  It screams: "iOS 9 is coming!"  

...or perhaps even: "Siri is coming to AppleTV!".

No need to disagree +Randy Fox :-)  She is giving hints, not answers.  Siri is giving us a clue: her "wavy words", which anyone who has used the Beta version of iOS 9 will understand is the new look for Siri.  So Siri is hinting that iOS 9 is coming, in which her words have turned "wavy".

I have a problem. I would like to listen to the radio on my iPad from iTunes (Music). But the only free station is the B1, and I don't really like it. So I wanted to sync my iPad with my playlist containing the streaming radios, but, I'm sad, it's not possible. Have anybody any soluton for this?
Thanks.

I just asked Siri that question  (Hey Siri, can I get a hint about Sept. 9th?). Her reply:
   "Can you get a hint?   No.   You may, however, get a what what."

God I love that woman.

Need a fileserver for small office, old Mac Pro or NAS?

Background:
I run a small design studio with 5 macs, we have a 6th mac which is a 2005 G5. This we use as a file server. It is running 10.5.8 (client) and stores our project archives, and image libraries – plus we run a printer off of it which is shared across the network. It was originally setup with a software RIAD in it but after one of the slices died I changed to using CCC to back up one drive to another one a week (adequate frequency for our needs). I also weekly make a CCC clone onto an portable drive which I keep off site.

The G5 is getting a little old in to tooth now, and once a fortnight a fans turn on max and it will eventually need restarting and/or just crash.

Advice:
So there are a a few options as I see it.

1a:- Get a newer MacPro (pre 2014 model) and replicate the set up, use the drive bays to create a RAID and a CCC backup volume. Remain using the client OS.

1b:- As above but use the Server OS instead - any real advantage in doing this, as I don’t need anything complex in the setup?

2:- Get a new network printer and then either a Drobo 5N, a Synology DS415+ or something similar. If I went this route how easy is it to make a portable backup of the drives?

3:- Something else

What are your thoughts?

An anniversary

On August 24, 2011, Timothy Donald "Tim" Cook became CEO of Apple, Silicon Valley's epicenter of sales revenue and profitability.

Unsurprisingly Tim was born in Mobile, Alabama, USA.

After Steve Jobs passed away some media predicted the downfall of Apple. Contrary to expectations Tim boosted Apple's business. Today we can say that a tech visionary passed away and a business visionary took control and implemented a new kind of openness and delegated authority.

Tim, keep on refining the company's DNA.

Did you read my blogpost +Jeff Strupp?

Just some examples:

There is a soft-and hardware partnership with IBM, some services reportedly will be opened to the public,
Swift now is open source
(https://developer.apple.com/swift/blog/?id=29)
etc.
This all can be called a new openness.

Bendgate... But didn't Apple Downplay that fiasco entirely !? !? !?

Recall only 100 official reports said Apples CEO Tim Cook .
Not considered a problem


Yet here we are a year or so later and Apple are Announcing the new iPhone will be made stronger using a stronger grade aluminum ...

Obviously Apple deemed the Bendgate a legitimate problem #

So can Apple be Trusted to be upfront honest at the time of Customer Concern ...  or is it expected they Will continue to try and sweep it under the carpet ...???
