WaterField Designs rolls out Vitesse cycling musette

WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com) has announced the Vitesse, a cycling musette redesigned for multi-functional use.

Inspired by the classic bike musette, WaterField owner Gary Waterfield says he maintained the bag’s best features and added upgrades: enhanced comfort, improved materials and increased functionality. The resulting Vitesse is the quintessential bag for cyclists, commuters or travelers, he adds.

Like a classic musette, the Vitesse has one main compartment, but WaterField adds a bit of depth to it as well as two interior pockets, leaving space for wallet, phone keys and a few larger items—lunch, books, or a tablet or laptop in a sleeve....

Paragon releases free Paragon Boot Camp Backup

Paragon Software Group has announced Paragon Boot Camp Backup, a free Mac OS X based backup solution for Windows partitions on Mac computers.

It includes incremental imaging, file-level recovery, a scheduler, the ability to restore to a smaller target disk, automatic check of file system for errors, and more.

Chromebooks: cloud-centric, budget-friendly, fast-booting, secure computing devices that are more functional than tablets and less expensive than the average laptop PC are market changers, according to ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com).

In 2014, Chromebooks gained traction in North America, and are set to continue growing as streaming devices become more popular among consumers and purchasing entities. According to ABI Research, Chromebooks experienced 235% growth between 2013 and 2014, with shipments reaching 4.87 million in 2014.

"The rollout of cloud services and the 2009 global economic collapse created the opportunity for developers to provide a budget-friendly solution for consumers,”" says Research Analyst Stephanie Van Vactor.

Global devices shipments to grow 2.8% this year

Worldwide combined shipments of devices (PCs, tablets, ultramobiles and mobile phones) are estimated to reach 2.5 billion units in 2015, an increase of 2.8% over 2014, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com). In spending terms, the global computing devices market (PCs and ultramobiles) is on pace to reach US$226 billion, a 7.2% decline in current U.S. dollars, says the research group.

Stripping out the impact of exchange-rate movements (constant U.S. dollars), the global computing devices spending will decrease 3.1 percent in 2015. The global PC market is on pace to total 306 million units in 2015, a 2.4 percent decrease over 2014. 

"The fall in PC purchases is primarily due to expected price increases by vendors in Europe and other regions, which is forced by local currency depreciation against the dollar," says Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner. "The currency squeeze is forcing PC vendors to...

Public Wi-Fi hotspots to reach 7.8 million this year

Worldwide public Wi-Fi hotspot deployments have reached a total of 5.69 million in 2014, and will grow at a CAGR [compound annual growth rate] of 11.2% between 2015 and 2020, according to ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com).

This includes public Wi-Fi hotspots deployed by mobile and fixed-line carriers as well as third-party Wi-Fi service providers. ABI Research expects the number of worldwide carrier Wi-Fi hotspots will reach 13.3 million in 2020.

"Wi-Fi hotspot deployments have been surprisingly robust; more and more public locations have signed up on a free or 'freemium' basis. This has discouraged the participation of third-party operators in some locales because there is a need for the upgrade of service, coverage and legacy equipment, which is only beneficial for operators with significant economies of scale," comments Lian Jye Su, research associate at ABI Research,

According to the Sandler Research group (www.sandlerresearch.com), the global headphones market will see a 12.70% CAGR [compound annual growth rate] between now and 2019.

It’s in Vietnamese.
Still, it’s an unboxing video, a bit early and it shows the new 29-watt power brick, 2-meter charging cable and brand new USB Type C connectors.
The company appears to have eschewed the longer power cord that it includes with its other notebook, though the power brick does feature interchangeable plugs. Also gone are the flip-up winding posts that have long adorned Apple’s power bricks.

Accessible Apple: April Newsletter

===Accessible Apple===

By: Alex Jurgensen

Hello, and welcome to a new edition of the Accessible Apple newsletter. For those of us in the blind community, I have to sadly report that our cry for equal access to the new Mac OS and Newton has gone unanswered for yet another month. What's up with that, Apple?

Well, I guess that wasn't a surprise. I mean, it was them after all that changed APIs so much that the Alva Access Group decided not to update Outspoken (1). I'm really beginning to lose hope that someone will write a screen reader for the new Mac OS. At this point, the only way I could see the Mac becoming accessible again would be if Apple were to write their own screen reader in-house, but we all know that'll never happen!!!

In other news, there have been a number of exciting developments in the Assistive Tech world since I wrote last month's newsletter. It appears that most of the industry isn't waiting for Apple to catch up accessibility-wise and...

The entirety of the video is in Vietnamese, of course, but is still worth a watch to check out the design of the new MacBook, the USB-C adapter, and the edge-to-edge keyboard in someone's hands outside the confines of Apple's media event last month. Additional photos from the unboxing can be found on the Tinhte.vn official website, with the full video located on the site's YouTube channel. The new MacBook launches on April 10, and Apple has yet to announce whether it will be offering pre-...

Happy April Fools' Day 2015: HiRise Toast, Pets Unlea...

As happens every year on April 1, today is April Fools' Day, and readers should be wary of hoaxes and claims at both news and rumor sites. Today also represents Apple's 39th anniversary, with their partnership having officially been founded on this day in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. As has become tradition, a number of today's pranks have focused on Apple and tech, and here are a few of the more interesting ones to surface so far today. Keep in mind that some hoaxes may be mildly NSFW, so turning down your volume or watching later may be best if you are at work or in a public space. iFaxit Repair your Apple products using iFixit's repair manuals, now sent through fax.

Pandora CFO Calls Apple a 'Frenemy,' Says Music...

When Apple's CarPlay feature launched last year, Apple partnered with several music services to offer a variety of listening choices on the platform, including Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Rdio, and more. Noticeably absent from CarPlay was Pandora, but that appears to be set to change. Pandora CFO Mike Herring spoke to Fox Business Network yesterday and said Pandora will "definitely be in CarPlay" and integrated into the Apple Watch as well. Though Herring did not provide a timeline for the possible launch of a Pandora CarPlay app, his statement to Fox is the closest Pandora's come to revealing its plans for the platform. Last year, Pandora told MacRumors that Apple was a valued partner and though it did not have a CarPlay offering at the current time, it was...

Verizon Wireless Lets Customers Opt Out of Tracking '...

Last year, Verizon and AT&T made headlines when researchers discovered they had been engaging in some unsavory customer tracking techniques, using unique identifier numbers or "perma-cookies" to track the websites that customers visited on their cellular devices to deliver targeted advertisements, a practice called "Relevant Advertising." Following customer backlash, AT&T stopped using the hidden web tracking codes to keep tabs on the websites that its customers visited, but Verizon continued on with its Relevant Advertising program, which it's been using for approximately two years. While there was an option to opt out of Verizon's program, opting out did not stop the intrusive code from being inserted into the URLs of Verizon customers, leaving a security hole that could let advertisers exploit Verizon...

Apple and HBO recently inked a deal that will see Apple becoming the exclusive launch partner for HBO's upcoming "HBO Now" web-based streaming service, and in an interview with CNBC, HBO CEO Richard Plepler explained why the company chose to partner Apple. According to Plepler, the main reason why HBO opted to team up with Apple was due to the success of its existing cable-based service, HBO GO. 60 percent of HBO GO traffic comes from Apple devices, including the Apple TV, Macs, and the iPhone and the iPad. HBO GO apps have been available on iOS devices since 2011 and the service has been available on the Apple TV since 2013. Plepler also pointed towards the popularity of Apple devices as a...

Let them use OneNote—it could change their lives

Today’s post was written by Becky Keene, national board certified teacher for the Kent School District, Microsoft expert educator and master trainer.
When I talk to people about the power of OneNote, I have a real reason for my passion. I call OneNote, “The best app in all of education.” In the spring of 2005, I was preparing a group of students to present what they learned over the past school year to a group of about 100 families who were interesting in applying for our public school academy program. One student, who I’ll call Tony, volunteered to speak at the presentation. I was surprised because Tony had struggled in school that year, and I wasn’t sure what he would want to share. Tony was a student who qualified for several accommodations at school, including extra time, opportunities to redo assignments and assistance organizing his daily tasks. Not one to turn down a willing seventh grader, I said we’d love to have him present. When we gathered the student... | Read more »

Video showcases iOS app built with Xojo

Xojo Inc., the company formerly known as Real Software, has posted a video of an iOS app that was built with Xojo. Xojo is an object-oriented, cross-platform software development tool that enables developers to create software for OS X, Windows, Linux, the web and mobile.

The video showcases all the native controls and gives an overview of Xojo's support for building iOS apps. Building native iOS apps with Xojo is the same as building a web or desktop app as you do today. You can view the video at http://tinyurl.com/nvexpk7 .

A look at SkySafari for iOS, Mac OS X and 2012 DA14

This Friday, Feb. 15, a 180,000-ton asteroid with the thrilling name of "2012 DA14" will fly past the Earth. Don't worry, we're not talking a "Deep Impact" scenario. Which is good, right? And you can follow the asteroid using Apple devices.

The 50-meter space rock will come within 17,200 miles of earth -- that's closer than our orbiting geosynchronous communication satellites. Although we don't have to worry about a collision, the passage of 2012 DA14 is a record close approach to the Earth for an object of this size.

Southern Stars has released update to its SkySafari Plus and Pro apps for iOS, Mac OS X, and Android to let you track 2012 DA14. If you want to track the asteroid you'll want the updated apps. Why? Because the Earth's gravity affects the asteroid's orbit so severely, most desktop planetarium programs -- and all other mobile apps -- will completely fail to predict the asteroid's position correctly, says Southern Stars founder Tim DeBenedictis.
