This is a great breakdown on how the screen rendering works with the new phones, especially the iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple releases Swift 1.0 and you can now submit apps to the App Store.
Yet another musician trying to break into the technology business. Maybe Garth Brooks and Neil Young should have gotten together on the store thing?
Brooks’ beef with iTunes is that it is grounded in selling singles, while Brooks says he wants his music sold as complete albums to protect the songwriters and music publishers who depend on income from tracks included on those recordings.
The problem with his “beef” is that the market has shifted to singles away from albums. Kids these days…
This is the desktop monitor I’ve been waiting for.
And in this case, it’s the users and their passwords.
After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet. None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud® or Find my iPhone.
The fragmentation in the Android development sphere should really keep most developers off that platform until long after they’ve reached that successful stage.
Let me state up front that I have no problem with Android and see its own benefits. But in this context, startups should follow the lead of Instagram and only start dabbling with Android if and when there’s a solid base of millions on iOS and/or if it becomes a strategic chip for the startup.
I’d like to see a breakdown between iOS and Android users. I probably download an average of 3 apps per month. And most of those would be paid. If you factor in the free games and things my kids download it probably goes up over 10.
I love this kind of stuff. Even if it’s presentation is a bit of the click-bait kind.

Should be rolling out in the fall. Can’t wait! It’s also interesting to hear that Google will be rewarding HTTPS in search rankings.
First, Google just announced that they will begin taking into account whether a site supports HTTPS connections in their ranking algorithm. This means that if you care about SEO then ensuring your site supports HTTPS should be a top priority. Kudos to Google to giving webmasters a big incentive to add SSL to their sites.
