the power mac g4 line – macstories
the tower form factor may be a thing of the past, at least until the new mac pro shows up next year, but for years, if you needed the most powerful and flexible machine money could buy, the power mac was the only way to go.for almost five years, the heart of the power mac was the powerpc g4 chip. starting in 1999 it clocked at just 350 mhz, but by the time the power mac g4 line was retired, a tower with dual 1.42 ghz cpus could be ordered. in that time frame, things like gigabit ethernet, superdrives, and wi-fi became mainstream.the power mac g4 came in three distinct cases over the years it was available. each style of machine saw several revisions while in service, bringing the total number of models to 10. that's a lot of computers to cover, so let's get started.graphitethe original power mac g4 borrowed a lot from the `blue and white` power mac g3 that preceded it. the g4's case was dubbed `graphite,` but the basic design was the same, complete with its plastic handles and side door that opened to grant easy access to all of the internal components of the machine.the similarities run deeper, however. the 1999 models were in two families.at the low end, the `power mac g4 (pci graphics)` 400 mhz model actually shared the logic board from the g3. it ran for just $1,599 and came with a 10 gb hard drive, 64 mb of ram, and a cd-rom drive.the high-end 500 mhz `power mac g4 (agp graphics)` came with an all-new logic board design and included agp-based graphics, airport...

the castro you’ve always wanted – macstories
castro has long been one of the premier podcast clients on ios, and its excellent version 2 – with an innovative triage system and delight-inducing design touches – helped solidify it as such. those strengths in 2.0, however, were mitigated in part by the absence of a few key features that competing podcast apps tout. that changes with castro 3.if you're unfamiliar with the app, castro's centerpiece feature is a triage system involving an inbox and queue. the premise is that, with the rising popularity of podcasting, there are more great podcasts available than ever before. if you subscribe to lots of shows, the standard episode management tools found in competing apps likely aren't sufficient. with castro, by default new episodes of shows land in your inbox, and can then be sorted to the top or bottom of your queue and downloaded, or archived if they're not of interest to you. it's an elegant solution to the problem of podcast overload, and, thanks to customization options that allow you to make certain shows populate the top or bottom of the queue automatically, it's a system that works for you, tailored to your listening preferences.castro's triage system clicked with me the first time i tried it, and i used the app daily for nearly a year. eventually though, i became more selective about the portions of podcasts i listened to, and castro's lack of chapter support sent me elsewhere. i've seen comments from other prospective castro users who were similarly turn...

google introduces youtube premium and youtube music subscription services, retires youtube red moniker – macstories
google seems to have an affinity for constantly rebranding its products, and today is the latest example of that. soon, youtube red will be replaced by the more costly $11.99/month youtube premium service – the good news is that premium members will get all the benefits of youtube's new music service thrown in too. and if you're an existing red subscriber, or sign up quickly before premium launches, you can lock in the existing $9.99 monthly rate and still get all the benefits of premium and music.youtube music is google's attempt at taking on streaming services like apple music and spotify directly. launching may 22nd, youtube music will have both a free tier and a paid, $9.99/month option. the main focus here is the paid plan though, as it will be the only way to enable background listening – a pretty important feature for music. paid subscribers will also benefit from downloads and ad-free listening.youtube music will launch with a new mobile app and desktop player, and use google's intelligence to power advanced search capabilities and an aggregation of different song versions you may not find elsewhere. in a confusing move, google play music will continue to exist as a separate service from youtube music, but if you're a subscriber to the former, you get the latter service at no extra cost.as someone who uses youtube regularly, but not enough to justify a red subscription, the new premium plan definitely seems like a more attractive all-around product, despite t...

in march, apple lead a swift playgrounds course at the texas school for the blind and visually impaired. today, which is global accessibility awareness day, apple announced that is partnering with schools in california, texas, new york, florida, illinois, and massachusetts: beginning this fall, schools supporting students with vision, hearing or other assistive needs will start teaching the everyone can code curricula for swift, apple’s powerful and intuitive programming language. tim cook, apple’s ceo, said: “apple’s mission is to make products as accessible as possible,” said tim cook, apple’s ceo. “we created everyone can code because we believe all students deserve an opportunity to learn the language of technology. we hope to bring everyone can code to even more schools around the world serving students with disabilities.” in addition to existing ios accessibility features, apple is augmenting the everyone can code curricula with tools and resources targeted at students with visual and hearing impairments.

twitter announces new end-of-life date for apis and pricing that affects third-party apps – macstories
in april, twitter delayed a transition to a new api that was expected to have a significant impact on third-party twitter clients like twitterrific and tweetbot. the delay came in the wake of an outcry from users of third-party twitter clients prompted by developers who banded together to encourage users to complain to twitter about the api changes that were set to take effect on june 19, 2018. today, twitter announced that those changes would go forward on august 16, 2018 – about two months later than originally planned.yesterday, in an interview with sarah perez of techcruch, paul haddad of tapbots, the maker tweetbot, said: “twitter has a replacement api that – if we’re given access to – we’ll be able to use to replace almost all of the functionality that they are deprecating,” he explains. “on mac, the worst case scenario is that we won’t be able to show notifications for likes and retweets. notifications for tweets, mentions, quotes, dms and follows will be delayed one to two minutes,” haddad adds. he also says that tweets wouldn’t stream in as they get posted, but instead would come in one to two minutes later as the app would automatically poll for them. (this is the same as how the ios app works now when connected to lte – it uses the polling api.) in addition to announcing transition date, twitter announced pricing for its new api, and it’s expensive. a subscription covering 100-250 users will cost $2899/month, which works out to over...

tweetbot 3 for mac review – macstories
tapbots has released tweetbot 3 for mac, which overhauls the app’s design, provides greater flexibility to manage multiple columns and navigate different parts of twitter, and includes a dark mode. for the first time since it was introduced in 2012, tapbots has also made version 3.0 a separate paid app, which means that existing and new users alike will have to pay $9.99 for the update.designalthough tweetbot 3.0 retains the basic look and feel of its predecessor, nearly every interface element of the app has been adjusted in some manner. starting with the timeline view, the compose button has been moved to the bottom left-hand corner of the window, replacing the multi-column button. previously, it was in the top right-hand corner next to the search button, which made it easy to click search inadvertently when you meant to compose a tweet and vice versa.tweetbot version 2.5 (left) and version 3.0 (right)individual tweets have a different look too. media included in quoted tweets is more prominent, retweet information has been moved to the top of a tweet, and tweet details show whether the person tweeting follows you. however, the most noticeable change is the dedicated row of light gray buttons along the bottom of each tweet for replying, liking, retweeting or quote-tweeting, and performing account or tweet actions. previously, a tweet’s buttons were only visible if a tweet was selected or moused over.the last two buttons in the row consolidate account and tweet-related a...

distraction dimmer™ for mac [sponsor] – macstories
clear away the clutter with hazeover for mac. it’s the distraction dimmer that helps you concentrate on one thing at a time by reducing visual clutter on your mac’s screen.hazeover dims everything on your screen except the window you’re working in, reducing mental overhead and helping you focus. how much the background is dimmed is controlled by turning a clever dimmer knob in the app’s preferences. you can set the effect to be subtle, or turn it up to really block out the clutter. dimming can also be adjusted from your mac’s menu bar.when you’re working a big project, it’s easy to wind up with dozens of windows scattered across your mac’s display. it’s handy to be able to get to those windows quickly, but they can also become a distraction making it hard to focus on the task at hand. this is an especially big problem with large displays and multi-screen setups.with hazeover, you don’t have to manage all those windows to eliminate distractions. dimming the background means you can enjoy the convenience of leaving windows open, without the visual mess. better yet, dimming is automatic, highlighting windows as you switch to them and dimming the rest.hazeover is also especially nice at night when it reduces the harsh glare from the background of your screen. it looks great with the dark menu bar and dock too, bringing the long-rumored macos dark mode closer to reality until apple implements something at a system level.this week only, you can eliminate distrac...

apollo 1.2 is packed with redditors’ feature requests – macstories
today a big update launched for apollo, the reddit client for ios that i once said `may just be the best designed social feed app i've ever used.` version 1.2 isn't focused so much on major new features, but instead a huge wealth of small improvements based on feedback from the reddit community that make for an even more delightful user experience.apollo's new jump button is a quick way to jump between top-level comments and save yourself some scrolling. progress bars for gifs and video runtimes on thumbnails provide a better sense of context when browsing. there are new settings options to change which browser links open in, to view videos directly in the youtube app, and more. and lots of under-the-hood tweaks simply make the app faster and more responsive than ever before.for a visual peek at these changes and more, developer christian selig put together a great video, linked below. the full 1.2 release notes are available on the app store, and in selig's launch post on reddit.

apple cancels data center project in ireland – macstories
in 2015, apple announced plans to build a data center in athenry, ireland. the facility was designed to run on renewable energy like other data centers apple operates around the globe. however, the irish project ran into problems from the start.according to techcrunch, concerns about the center’s environmental impact and effect on the electrical grid slowed the project down. then, after apple received the approval of the galway county council to begin building, individual objections were lodged and the disputes wound up in the irish courts. with the prospect of appeals that would continue to prevent it from commencing construction, apple decided to cancel the project.in a statement to techcrunch, apple said: “we’ve been operating in ireland since 1980 and we’re proud of the many contributions we make to the economy and job creation.  in the last two years we’ve spent over €550 million with local companies and, all told, our investment and innovation supports more than 25,000 jobs up and down the country.  we’re deeply committed to our employees and customers in ireland and are expanding our operations in cork, with a new facility for our talented team there,” the company said in a statement provided to techcrunch. “several years ago we applied to build a data centre at athenry. despite our best efforts, delays in the approval process have forced us to make other plans and we will not be able to move forward with the data centre. while disappointing...

valve announces game and video streaming apps for ios and android – macstories
valve has announced that during the week of may 21st, it will release steam link, an ios app that allows gamers to stream steam games over wired ethernet or 5ghz wireless networks to an apple tv or ios device. the app will support the steam controller and mfi controllers like the steelseries nimbus. although the bandwidth necessary to stream games will preclude users from streaming on mobile networks, steam link provides greater flexibility to gamers who would otherwise be limited to playing on macs and windows pcs. the app will also be available on android devices.valve also announced that it will release steam video on ios later this summer. valve sells tv shows and movies, but this is the company’s first mobile solution for viewing that content. valve says users will be able to stream videos over wifi and lte networks or download them to ios devices for viewing. like steam link, valve’s video app will be available on android too, but a firm release date has not been announced yet.

google introduces news app for ios to replace newsstand – macstories
yesterday at the keynote for google's i/o developer conference, the company introduced a news app launching soon for ios and android, which will replace the existing google play newsstand app. the app is rolling out some time in the next week, but here are the highlights for what it'll contain.like apple news, the landing page for google news is called for you, which is where google aggregates stories based on your interests. the second tab, headlines, is strictly about the biggest stories in the world each day. these stories will be the same for everyone within a given geographic region, with no personalized curation at all. finally, favorites and newsstand give you quick access to the publishers you follow, including the ability to subscribe to publications from directly within the app.for the most part, google news is a close imitation of apple news – it has a similar layout, and a similar design with white backgrounds and a heavy focus on photography. the way it best differentiates itself is a feature that i think is the highlight of the app: full coverage. when you're reading a story and want to gain more insights and perspectives on the same topic, tapping the 'full coverage' option opens a view that aggregates a wide array of sources covering a variety of angles on that story. it's one way google is aiming to promote solid journalism while gently combating filter bubbles. based on the examples that have been shown so far, full coverage will list stories on an e...

last week my wife and i ventured to new york city for a vacation, and in the time leading up to that we planned out our agenda with the help of google street view. unfortunately, our planning took place just a couple weeks too early to benefit from the newly released streets 4 by futuretap.streets is an ios and watchos app john reviewed upon version 3's release. it provides an immersive, touch-friendly way to navigate google's street view data. and in version 4, that experience has been upgraded with drag and drop support on ipad, a new live panorama mode, and optimization for the iphone x's display.drag and drop enables you to drop in a location from apple maps, a contact that includes an address, or any other linked address to load up nearby panoramas in streets. my favorite feature enables dropping in any geotagged photo, which streets will identify the location of so it can show you existing 360º images of the same or a nearby area – an easy way to discover great captures from other photographers.live panorama mode can be toggled on by tapping the rotating circle icon in the top-right corner. once activated, it offers a new interaction method for exploring street views. rather than swiping around on the screen, simply move your device in the space around you and the visible street view area will change with your motion.whether you're planning some time away, or simply want to explore the world from the comfort of your couch, streets is the best way to do so on ios....

the fragmentation of ios’s ui design – macstories
benjamin mayo on the state of iconography in apple’s built-in ios apps: my gripe is there is no consistency, no structure or logic to this. apps introduced later sometimes use rounded icons, sometimes not, sometimes create all-new custom glyphs of their own. incredulously, you could open flagship apps like messages, mail and safari and have no idea apple was even playing with bold icons as a conceptual change. these apps adopted the ios 11 large bold navigation bar title formats, but their icons and glyphs have stagnated for more than four years at this point. mayo uses eight examples of apple’s action icon to emphasize the design inconsistencies.since ios 7, each revision of ios has felt like a tentative design experiment, with icons in a handful of apps moving in different directions. the trouble is, apple doesn’t seem to have settled on a clear winner among the several options tested, which has begun to make the ui feel directionless. although rumors seem to indicate that a design refresh of ios is at least another year off, i hope we’ll start to see indications of where ios design is going this year at wwdc.

pocket casts acquired – macstories
pocket casts, one of the most popular cross-platform podcast clients (and among the top ones listeners use to download episodes of appstories), has been acquired by a consortium of public radio stations and podcast companies. here's shifty jelly's russel ivanovic, writing on the company's blog: today we’re excited to announce a partnership with some of the biggest producers of podcasts in the world to take pocket casts to the next level. we’ve had a lot of companies in the past contact us about acquiring us and or pocket casts and we’ve always had one simple answer for them: thanks, but no thanks. in talking to each of them it was obvious that they didn’t have the best interests of our customers or us at heart and as much as cashing out and walking off into the sunset is a nice ideal, it’s a crummy outcome for all of you and in turn for us. you see we care so damn deeply about what we’ve built and our relationship with each and every one of you that we know deep down inside that would just eat away at us. that’s why when a combined group comprised of wnyc, npr, wbez and this american life approached us with the goal of partnering for the good of the entire podcast industry, we knew that this opportunity was something else entirely. everything from their not for profit mission focus, to their unwavering belief that open and collaborative wins over closed walled gardens resonated deeply with us. together we have the passion, scale and laser focus needed to ...

cardhop from flexibits got an update to version 1.1 today, and it packs in some pretty great improvements for an incremental update.if you missed it before, cardhop is the app from the makers of fantastical that does for contacts what fantastical did for calendars. all your contacts are managed from your menu bar, and you're never more than a few keystrokes away from sending an email, making a call, sending a text, or anything else contact-related. type `email elle` and it will find elle's card, pick the first email address, and hitting enter will fire up a new email in mail (or your favorite mail app). type `call mom home` and handoff a call to mom's home phone number. it's far more powerful than that, but i'll refer you to john voorhees' great writeup back in october for the overview.cardhop 1.1 comes with some fixes and improvements, not least of them being parsing and formatting support for french, german, italian, spanish, english, and japanese. but the two updates that i personally find the most useful are smart groups and printing support.smart groups are what you probably imagine – a group of contacts based on a set of criterion that automatically updates as contacts change to match (or fail to match) those criteria. it opens up a few interesting organization and productivity schemes, but my first interest is in pseudo-tagging. i can now add @tags in contact's notes field and have them sorted into one or more smart folders, reducing my need for a large nu...
