Report: Apple wants exclusive streaming rights from artists

Report: Apple wants exclusive streaming rights from artists

Apple is looking for exclusive content from big-name artists, says a new report. Specifically named were Florence and the Machine and Taylor Swift, but it’s possible Apple had even larger aspirations. In a recent interview, Kanye West hinted he recently turned down a multi-million dollar deal with Apple, though he didn’t really discuss what it entailed. The artists were approached to provide content for Beats Music, which has gone largely untouched since Apple purchased it last year. It’s also said to be the service Apple is leveraging for their rumored streaming service.

Apple Watch still shipping, but you’ll wait until June to get it

If you slept on the Apple Watch launch, you’re probably going to need some morning coffee before you read this. While a lot of people were tucked away in bed during the Apple Watch overnight launch, some stayed up. Some waited up (or woke up early) to order their Apple Watch, and it’s causing some supply/demand issues. If you want to order your new wrist-bound wearable, you can. It’ll just take until June before you actually see it arrive at your house.

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Well, that was definitely quick. In fact, you could say it was just a wee bit late. The Apple Store is back in business and to the surprise of no one, new products are available for grabs. Sort of. While you can indeed already order the new MacBook, the Apple Watch is a different matter entirely. You can put in an pre-order now if you already know the right configuration you want, or schedule an appointment to try it out. When you will actually get it on your wrists, however, is a different story.

Apple Watch Edition may be confined to 53 outlets globally

Apple Watch Edition may be confined to 53 outlets globally

The Apple Watch is coming, just like Winter. Unlike the bitter cold of winter, however, a lot more people are looking forward to it. But it seems that as we inch closer to that glorious hour, more and more of the fine print of the smartwatch's availability are being revealed. Supplies of the Apple Watch might not be able to keep up with the demand, so says Apple itself. If that wasn't bad enough, it seems that the already rare, because expensive, golden Apple Watch Edition might be even more limited, not just in supply but in location as well.

iTunes update brings better support for Photos

iTunes update brings better support for Photos

In our preview of Photos for OS X, the line “Photos has two advantages there out of the gate, and it's both faster and easier to use than the software it replaces” was (and is) telling. Photos is just plain better than iPhoto in so many ways, and Apple is keen to take advantage of it quickly. Now that the new software is out for both OS X and iOS, Apple is also updating iTunes to aide with syncing photos in Photos across all your devices.

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

Well it's about damn time the MacBook grew up. For years now, many of us OS X devotees have peered over the fence with envious eyes as Windows machines were given far more portable form-factors. Lenovo has been leading the pack in svelteness, and Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 has been appealing with its detachable keyboard, but at the end of the day Windows simply doesn't do it for me. The arrival of the new MacBook, however, meant those days of coveting notebooks could be long gone, with Apple taking the proven design of the MacBook Air and cutting out every last scrap of excess until - for the most part - only the features that matter remain. That's the theory, at least; I took the MacBook on the road to see if it was also the same in practice.

Apple Watch may be tough to get (at first), says Apple Store chief

Apple Watch may be tough to get (at first), says Apple Store chief

The Apple Watch is coming tomorrow. Unlike ‘Winter’ in Game of Thrones, we know when Apple Watch is landing. As you may know, getting one might be a bit tough at first, but Apple is putting Store staff through their paces, and have created some interesting new rules to make sure those who are actually interested in buying an Apple Watch can. The onlookers who might try one on still can, but ordering won’t be so simple. Still, Apple is strongly cautioning the Apple Watch you want may not be available for purchase, whether you jump through the right hoops or not.

Apple tipped in Dryft startup acquisition

Apple tipped in Dryft startup acquisition

Apple has acquired Dryft, the startup behind the keyboard apps, at least according to some sleuthing work that has been performed and unnamed sources. If true, it was an exceptionally quiet acquisition, with it being said it seems the acquisition happened in 2014. Apple skirted around confirming the rumor, saying instead its boilerplate response about occasionally buying smaller tech companies -- a canned response many are assuming means "yes" without any explicit confirmation of such. If true, it appears it may have been a talent grab.
