4 reasons why USB-C would be awesome on the iPad Pro (and 4 reasons why it won't)

Macworld - Tue, 09/11/2018 - 11:33

With just hours to go until Apple’s Gather Round event, notable Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo dropped a juicy rumor on Monday that threw us for a loop. According to the analyst, Apple will changing the port on the new iPad Pro from Lightning to USB-C.

That’s major. We already expect the new iPads to get a significant redesign with super-slim bezels, no home button, Face ID, and no headphone jack, but this rumor leapfrogs them all. Switching to USB-C as the main I/O port on the iPad would be a monumental change for the tablet and would surely cause lots of feelings among fans. Here's why the reactions will likely be split right down the middle:

Brussels will not turn Hungary into 'country of migrants', rages Viktor Orban

Top Stories - Tue, 09/11/2018 - 11:14

Viktor Orban warned he would never allow Brussels to transform Hungary into “a country of migrants” on Tuesday, ahead of an unprecedented vote tomorrow in the European Parliament that could strip Budapest of its EU voting rights. MEPs will vote on whether to trigger “Article 7”, an EU law drafted to ensure respect for democracy and the rule of law, amid fears that Mr Orban is turning Hungary into a dictatorship.  “You believe you know better than the Hungarians themselves,” Mr Orban told MEPs, after arriving late at Tuesday's debate. “Hungary will be condemned because Hungarians have decided their country is not going to be a country of migrants." Hungary will become the first country to face the procedure because of a European Parliament vote, if it is passed by the required two-thirds majority. Poland is also undergoing the Article 7 process, but in its case this was triggered by the European Commission rather than a parliament vote. National governments must back any action and Budapest has already vowed to veto any punishment levied on Warsaw.   Mr Orban is at loggerheads with Brussels over mandatory migrant relocation quotas, as well as laws in Hungary cracking down on NGOs, the media and the Central European University. In an incendiary speech that exposed deep EU divisions, he claimed the “verdict was already written” by a “pro-migration majority”, despite his Fidesz party being a member of the European Peoples Party (EPP), the largest parliament group. “We will protect our borders and we will decide who to live together with. We have built a fence and we have stopped illegal migrants. Hundreds of thousands of them. We have defended Hungary and we have defended Europe," he said. "This is the first case in the history of Europe when a community has condemned its own border guard,” he added.  Perceived share of immigrants in national population “Thank God there is at least one European leader prepared to stand up for his principles, his culture, his nation and his people in the face of such extreme bullying,” said Nigel Farage, the MEP and former Ukip leader. “Come and join the Brexit club. You’ll love it,” he said, after telling Mr Orban he was at a “show trial”. Merkel's migration tensions | Read more There is speculation that EPP support for Mr Orban is splintering but British Conservative MEPs will vote against Article 7 because it “infringes the sovereignty of a member state”.  “Will you ensure that the values of this Union are more than just words written on a piece of paper?” asked Judith Sargentini, the Dutch Green MEP who wrote the parliament report that will be voted on. Mr Orban echoed Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras and Guy Verhofstadt, the federalist MEP, in predicting that next May’s European Parliament elections would be a battle between pro-EU and anti-migrant, nationalistic parties.

(Reuters) - A former Goldman Sachs Group Inc partner had raised concerns about some unethical practices at the bank before he left in 2015, the New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing people close to the matter. James Katzman, who led the bank's West Coast mergers-and-acquisitions practice, had used the whistle-blower hotline in 2014 to report on the investment bank trying to hire a customer's child and colleagues' repeated attempts to obtain and then share confidential client information, the paper reported https://nyti.ms/2CJ9wEq. The investigation was taken up by the bank's general counsel and Katzman was urged to move past his complaints by several senior investment banking executives, the newspaper reported, citing several people familiar with the interactions.

How to use the augmented reality Measure app in iOS 12

Macworld - Tue, 09/11/2018 - 09:00

With the introduction of ARKit in iOS 11, Apple put a stake in the ground in the mobile Augmented Reality race. Some of the best early AR apps used your phone to measure linear distances—a digital tape measure, if you will. 

With iOS 12, Apple is expanding it’s Augmented Reality capabilities with ARKit 2, and has built-in a new utility app called Measure to show what Augmented Reality can do. It’s a simple app that reliably measures linear distances, and obsoletes some of those early, simple AR measuring apps.

How to consolidate media from old apps into a single Photos library

Macworld - Tue, 09/11/2018 - 08:00

If you’ve used previous tools such as iPhoto and Aperture for managing your photos and videos, you can wind up with many libraries and miscellaneous files, and be unsure whether you have a definitive set of photos that’s not full of wasteful overlaps.

That’s the case for Macworld reader John, who has libraries across several software programs and piles of backups to boot. He’d like to consolidate everything in one place and de-duplicate, so he has an authoritative set. He wonders if he’ll wind up needing a huge drive to manage all this, too. (Probably!)

Apple offers no real help with this, except recognizing duplicates of certain kinds when importing images from another source. You need to turn to third parties for help. My best recommendation here is PowerPhotos from Fat Cat Software, a unique app that contains a lot of tools you might have hoped Apple would have built into Photos by now, including library merging and de-duplication of media. It’s $30 and it’s worth every penny.

Oslo Accords 25 years on: from hope to deadlock

Top Stories - Tue, 09/11/2018 - 07:05

Sealed with a handshake beamed across the world, the 1993 Oslo Accords were the first agreements between the rival Israelis and Palestinians and promised to end decades of deadly conflict. The all-smiles image of Arafat shaking hands with Rabin was a moment of hope, but 25 years after that bright day in Washington, relations between the two sides have soured and the deal -- which envisaged eventual Palestinian autonomy -- is deadlocked. Here is a look back at the landmark Oslo Accords.

On the eve of the presumed announcement of the fourth generation of Apple Watch, The Macalope thought it would be educational to look back at what people said about Apple’s most prominent entrant into the category that people literally said the company would go out of business if it didn’t compete in.

OK, he thought it would be funny to look back at what was said. But, then, isn’t laughter the best educator? Oh, wait, it’s the best medicine. Frankly, the horny one thinks that’s penicillin but, still, who doesn’t like to laugh?
