Understanding how iCloud stores data

Macworld - Mon, 05/28/2018 - 08:00

Contrary to what you might think, Apple's iCloud isn’t a central storage system. Rather, it’s a synchronization system that requires data remain on the end points, such as your Macs and iOS devices. Deleting data off end points manually typically deletes it from iCloud’s central servers, used to manage sync, and from every other connected device.

Macworld reader Tom wrote in asking about this topic, which is extremely confusing, as some iCloud services can reduce storage required in varying ways, but you have to use their interfaces to let them manage it automatically. If you delete items manually, they’re just removed.

Tom asks:

Is there any way to create folders (or an album) in iCloud, store files in that space, but delete the files from the general Photos group?

Harry and Meghan to visit Canada on honeymoon, reports suggest 

Top Stories - Mon, 05/28/2018 - 07:52

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to spend their honeymoon at the Royal family's favourite Canadian cabin, according to US reports.  Harry and Meghan will travel to the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta, Canada, for their first holiday as a married couple, TMZ reported.  However, a spokeswoman for the lodge said they were "not currently booked for a stay".  Angela Moore, regional director of public relations, said: "We are declining further comment at this time, as our top priority is always the safety and privacy of all of our guests. We appreciate your understanding." The lodge they were rumoured to be staying in is the 6,000 square foot Outlook Cabin, which has previously hosted the Queen and Prince Philip in 2005 as well as the Queen Mother, who visited in 1939 with King George VI. The £2,000-a-night lodge comes with a conservatory and veranda, private parking, a terrace with a barbecue, six bedrooms and six bathrooms.  It was rebuilt following the exact floorplan of the original, after being destroyed in a fire in 2000. The resort's brochure says the cabin "exudes the elegance and grandeur that has welcomed King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939 as well as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in 2005." Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: The story of their relationship, in pictures The cabin is nicknamed "the Royal retreat" and can cost from around £2,000 up to around £5,000 a night, according to online booking websites.  It adds: "Supreme comfort is present in every detail of the comfortable bedrooms, enclosed verandas and two majestic stone fireplaces that warms both the dining room and great room - the perfect place to entertain family & friends or celebrate a special occasion." There had previously been suggestions that the couple would opt for an African destination for their honeymoon, given both Harry and Meghan's interest and experience in charity work on the continent.  The entrance to the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Credit: George Rose /Getty Images North America  They took a romantic holiday in Botswana shortly after they first met in the summer of 2016, before visiting southern Africa again the following year.  However, the Duchess has a longstanding connection with Canada, having lived in Toronto for several years while filming the series Suits.  A spokesman for the Royals declined to comment. 

Tweetbot 3 for macOS review: Twitter app pushes forward in usefulness and design

Macworld - Mon, 05/28/2018 - 07:00

The new Tweetbot 3 for macOS remains fundamentally the same, though it has modest but noticeable improvements and new features that give the app a little more sparkle. For example, a new autoplay mode for animated GIFs and embedded video lets you mouse over to start the playback instead of requiring a click, though audio fortunately still requires one. (The feature can be disabled.)

IDG To start an animated GIF, all you need to do in Tweetbot 3 is move your cursor over the image. Tweetbot 3: Usability

The app’s approach focuses on what would now be called “classic” Twitter: a chronologically organized timeline with the newest tweets at the top, and an option to autoscroll as new tweets appear. Like other third-party apps, Tweetbot 3 doesn't show Twitter ads.

It's surely a stunt out of a Hollywood film. A man's dramatic climb up the side of a building to rescue a child in Paris earned him widespread praise, plus a meeting with French president Emmanuel Macron. SEE ALSO: NASA shares the story of how a SpaceX launch completely melted this poor camera 22-year-old Mamoudou Gassama, an undocumented Malian migrant, took less than 40 seconds to scale four floors of an apartment block in the city's 18th arrondissement on Saturday afternoon.  Videos of the incident were widely shared on social media, showing Gassama being cheered on by a crowd of onlookers. "I saw all these people shouting, and cars sounding their horns. I climbed up like that and, thank God, I saved the child," Gassama said, according to AFP. "I felt afraid when I saved the child... (when) we went into the living room, I started to shake, I could hardly stand up, I had to sit down." Firefighters arrived later at the scene. A spokesperson for the Parisian fire department told AFP it was fortunate "there was someone who was physically fit and who had the courage to go and get the child." The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, congratulated Gassama for his "act of bravery" on Twitter, and said she had called him personally to "thank him warmly." "He explained to me that he had arrived from Mali a few months ago dreaming of building his life here," Hidalgo added in another tweet. Il m'a expliqué être arrivé du Mali il y a quelques mois en rêvant de construire sa vie ici. Je lui ai répondu que son geste héroïque est un exemple pour tous les citoyens et que la Ville de Paris aura évidemment à coeur de le soutenir dans ses démarches pour s'établir en France. — Anne Hidalgo (@Anne_Hidalgo) May 27, 2018 "I told him that his heroic act is an example to all citizens and that the city of Paris will obviously be very keen to support him in his efforts to settle in France."  An online petition has been started to help push immigration authorities to receive Gassama's papers. A presidential spokesperson told AFP that Macron will meet Gassama on Monday morning. Authorities say the child's parents were not at home at the time, according to France 24. The child's father has been placed in custody, and will face court on Sunday evening for neglecting his parental responsibilities.

By Sofia Menchu SAN JUAN OSTUNCALCO, Guatemala (Reuters) - For Claudia Gomez, the 19-year old indigenous Guatemalan who was shot last week by a border patrol officer, the chance for a better life in the United States outweighed worries about a crackdown at the border, her family said on Sunday. Gomez grew up in the village of San Juan Ostuncalco, surrounded by cinder block homes built with dollars sent home by relatives in the United States and a road the community had paved with a collection of remittances. Interviewed at their home, her parents said she had set off despite what they had heard about tougher policies toward illegal immigrants under U.S. President Donald Trump.

One Harvey Weinstein accuser says she won't celebrate his arrest in a must-read thread

In the days following Harvey Weinstein's arrest, some within the entertainment industry have posted a statement released by Time's Up — the organization created in the wake of the scandal.  Others, like actress Annabella Sciorra, have taken things a step further. Sciorra was one of the women to come forward in Ronan Farrow's follow up stories featured in The New Yorker. On Sunday, she shared that she felt the farthest thing from celebratory when she heard the initial news about his arrest.  SEE ALSO: Harvey Weinstein hands himself in to police in New York "The law finally caught up with Harvey Weinstein on Friday and charge him with multiple counts of rape and sexual assault," she tweeted.

"The public statement from his lawyer was intended only to denigrate all the brave women who came forward and spoke out against him." "All that says is, money buys VIP treatment in the justice system no matter how serious or violent the crimes," she tweeted, after referencing his "million dollar bond."  Compare that to the case of Kalief Browder, who was denied bail after being accused of a misdemeanor, then spent four years in Rikers, over half of it in solitary confinement, awaiting a trial that never occurred. — Annabella Sciorra (@AnnabellSciorra) May 27, 2018 "Compare that to the case of Kalief Browder, who was denied bail after being accused of a misdemeanor, then spent four years in Rikers, over half of it in solitary confinement, awaiting a trial that never occurred," she went on, referencing the tragic case of Browder, who ultimately committed suicide at the age of 22 because of mental distress due to his incarceration.  "If there was truly 'equal justice under the law,' Harvey Weinstein would be behind bars in Rikers today, waiting for his own day in court, not free to roam New York, his other hunting ground, wearing an ankle bracelet," Sciorra wrote.  If there was truly ’equal justice under the law’, Harvey Weinstein would be behind bars in Rikers today, waiting for his own day in court, not free to roam New York, his other hunting ground, wearing an ankle bracelet. — Annabella Sciorra (@AnnabellSciorra) May 27, 2018 Mira Sorvino, who has been a vocal Time's Up supporter and came forward with her own Weinstein story in 2017, chimed in and thanked Sciorra for her words.  This thread is so important.
