In this feature-packed issue of TidBITS, photographer Jeff Carlson compares two new solutions for cloud-based photo management: Apple’s Photos and Adobe’s Lightroom CC. Josh Centers once again catches up with the snoops, detailing new bills in Congress, recently revealed surveillance programs, a ranking of presidential candidates on mass surveillance, and more. Finally in FunBITS, Geoff Duncan explores a Google tour of the legendary Abbey Road Studios, where some of the most celebrated rock albums were recorded; don’t miss his spectacular audio version! Notable software releases this week include Fantastical 2.0.4, ChronoSync 4.6.1 and ChronoAgent 1.5.2, Downcast 1.1.10, and Safari 8.0.6, 7.1.6, and 6.2.6.
We want photos on the Mac and on iOS devices to seamlessly find their ways into our photo libraries, but until recently that was essentially impossible. Apple’s Photos for OS X and Adobe’s Lightroom CC include cloud-based options for synchronizing photos among devices, but take different paths to reach that goal.
A lot has happened since our last installment. Several key bills are being debated in Congress, a new surveillance program has been revealed, presidential candidates have offered their input, the snoops are moving on Silicon Valley, and a high-profile leaker had his day in court.
Google’s interactive tour of London’s Abbey Road Studios pulls back the curtain on one of the music industry’s most-storied spaces… without being too much of a hard sell.
