TidBITS#1270/27-Apr-2015

We’re pleased to welcome a new sponsor: Automatic Labs, makers of the Automatic car adapter and iPhone app, which help you drive safer and smarter. For a limited time, TidBITS readers in the United States can take 20 percent off the $99.95 purchase price. Speaking of money, Apple is drowning in it, reporting record profits for Q2 2015. Apple said nothing about Apple Watch sales in the earnings call, but the TidBITS crew is here with our first impressions of the new device. Also on the Apple Watch beat is Security Editor Rich Mogull, who explains why the Apple Watch could lead to better security with less fuss. Finally, we’re happy to bring you the second edition of Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of the Mac Command Line with Terminal,” which adds 50 pages of new content for anyone who wants to use OS X’s Unix underpinnings better. We even put the book to use right away, with an article explaining how you can eliminate drop shadows from OS X’s screenshots. Notable software releases this week include Nicecast 1.11.4, iMovie 10.0.8, OmniFocus 2.1.3, Hazel 3.3.5, iMac Graphics Update 1.0, Fantastical 2.0.3, KeyCue 7.5, BusyCal 2.6.6, and BusyContacts 1.0.3.
