why apple doesn’t need a ‘revolutionary’ iphone


in apple’s most recent earnings call, tim cook revealed that the iphone 7 and 7 plus set a record for the most iphone sold in a single quarter. together, these iphones sold over 78 million units and made over $54 billion, ending apple’s three consecutive quarters of declining iphone sales. in this week’s episode of the iphone show, let’s explore what the the success of the iphone 7 means for the future of the iphone. after all, the iphone 7 was originally criticized for being “boring.” but if a boring iphone can still make billions of dollars, does apple have any motivation to take a risk and create a “revolutionary” device? or perhaps apple did take a big risk with the launch of the iphone 7, by giving the plus models exclusive features like the dual- era system that can take p os in p






how to find your saved smart folders in the finder


smart folders are a terrifically powerful and underused tool in the finder. select file > new smart folder, and you can create a set of criteria that produce the results right in the window for actions that include selection and deletion.however, when you save a smart folder if you opt to leave it out of the finder sidebar, it’s dropped by default into a saved searches folder. that folder isn’t linked by default anywhere. if you remember the name, a spotlight search can find it again. idgthe saved searches folder contains all your smart folder settings.but you can also reach it by path:in the finder, choose go > go to folder.enter ~/library/saved searchesand there you are! you can double-click any item in that special directory. to modify the smart folder, click the actions (gear) me

the case of the mac that self-plays youtube videos


jeff spivack writes in a story of terror: my macbook pro (running el capitan) woke us up at 6:30 this morning. it was playing youtube videos all by itself. i don’t think anyone had been using the computer in the past 24-36 hours, but i do leave it on and awake all of the time. when we had gone to bed, there were no youtube videos playing. jeff says the video was playing in a safari window, and he checked by holding down the back on to see how many videos it had gone through—he found at least 20 urls in the list! he selected the oldest item, and got an error at youtube that the video didn’t exist, and that page didn’t appear in the history. “is my mac possessed?” asks jeff. i have a few suspicions about what happened, and it’s not your fault. youtube added a “feature” around early 2015

what file service should you use with network drives and time machine?


what kind of networked volumes formatted with which methods can you use with time machine? a reader queried me on twitter, trying to understand from their past experience and apple’s current documentation, and i agree that it’s not very clear, because of apple’s inclusive but non-specific language. apple used to favor the apple filing protocol (afp) file service for network drive sharing, local and remote. however, it’s deprecated afp in favor of the windows-compatible server message block (smb) format, which is what’s typically used with network-attached storage (nas) devices and non-apple wi-fi routers that allow usb-connected drives.
