Apple has started a replacement program for 3 TB hard drives in some 27-inch iMacs, and the company has also made the Apple Watch available for pickup in Apple retail stores. That’s perfect timing, since we’ve just released Jeff Carlson’s comprehensive “Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course.” Developer Vemedio has pulled the plug on its popular Instacast podcast client, but Josh Centers suggests some alternatives. Adam Engst warns that iCloud Photo Library could cause cellular data overages, and that repairing your Photos library could trigger another large upload. Michael Cohen examines the Revisions app for Dropbox, which offers a better interface for Dropbox file recovery. Finally, Josh takes you on a tour of the Pandoland conference, which brought Silicon Valley to Nashville. Notable software releases this week include Lightroom CC 2015.1 and Lightroom 6.1, Default Folder X 4.7.2, ChronoSync 4.6.2 and ChronoAgent 1.5.3, Audio Hijack 3.1.1, and Mellel 3.4.
Apple is replacing 3 TB hard drives in 27-inch iMacs sold between December 2012 and September 2013.
Go deeper than Web articles with our latest Take Control book, Jeff Carlson’s “Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course,” which may be the first documentation of the Apple Watch that’s comprehensive, independent, and based on real-world experience.
After limited initial supplies, many Apple Watch models and bands are now available in retail Apple Stores, though you must still initiate orders online.
Vemedio, developer of the popular Instacast podcast client, is closing up shop. Josh Centers recommends a few alternatives.
If you use or are considering using iCloud Photo Library, be careful, since the initial download to an iPhone could cause cellular data overage charges, and repairing your Photos library could result in another bandwidth-hogging upload.
With Revisions you can monitor activity in your Dropbox folders to find, view, compare, and restore previous versions of files.
At the tech conference Pandoland, Silicon Valley meets Music City. Tennessee native Josh Centers visited to get a behind-the-scenes look at the tech industry.
