The Russian president said on Saturday Russia had suspended the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty after the US’s exit after Donald Trump accused Moscow of violating the pact’s terms. In a meeting with the head of Russia’s ministry of defence, Sergei Shoigu, and foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, Mr Putin gave his approval to plans which include the building of hypersonic land-based missiles as well as a ground-based version of the Kalibr (also known as Caliber) sea-launched cruise missile.

How to move photos to iCloud Photos without an up-to-date Mac

Macworld - Tue, 02/05/2019 - 08:00

iCloud Photos requires the use of Photos in iOS or macOS to sync images across all the devices with which you’re logged into the same iCloud account, as well as uploading them at full resolution to the central iCloud servers, where you can access them at iCloud.com.

But what if you have an out-of-date Mac, don’t want to convert an iPhoto library to Photos, or otherwise can’t get yourself in a position in which you can use the latest tools? For instance, some people have shifted entirely to using an iPad, but an iPad is not an effective way to upload an old iPhoto or newer Photos library to iCloud.

There’s a workaround, so long as you know someone with a Mac that you can use temporarily and they’re willing to set you up with an account. You can transfer your old Mac-based library to iCloud Photos, and then continue to use it solely via iOS and iCloud.com.

When Apple, Facebook, and Google fight, we all lose

Macworld - Tue, 02/05/2019 - 07:00

For a few hours last week, the internet collectively held its breath. After TechCrunch reported that Facebook had been flouting Apple’s Developer Enterprise Program by releasing a data-collecting “Research” app in the wild, it was revealed that Google was doing something similar. Both companies were seeking valuable data from iPhone users that Apple normally keeps locked up.

Apple had to respond. Not only were Facebook and Google openly disregarding Apple’s guidelines, they were skirting the iPhone maker’s very strict privacy rules by collecting gobs of data on how, when, and where people use their iPhones. And most importantly, they were stubbornly dismissing Apple’s very public promise that "What happens on your iPhone stays on your iPhone." In short, if Facebook and Google were doing it, how many other companies were?

Rest assured that the Apple doom train continues to chug along whether you choose to ride it or it ever stops at Cupertino or not.

Writing for Gizmodo, Rhett Jones says “Apple Is Blowing It.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Bart.)

“Blowing what?” you may ask. Let The Macalope assure you it is blowing all the things. Let us hasten to the enumeration of the blowings, for there are many blowings to be enumerated and we would not want to leave a single blowing behind.

State of the Union 2019: 5 things to look out for ahead of Trump's historic address

Top Stories - Tue, 02/05/2019 - 05:10

If Donald Trump's State of the Union address is at all similar to the speech he delivered to the US Congress last year, Americans can expect more false facts and fresh new controversies on Tuesday night.

The 2019 State of the Union address was pushed back a week from the originally anticipated date following a federal government shutdown — the longest of its kind in US history — triggered by Mr Trump’s demands $5.7bn towards building a US-Mexico border wall.
