Have you been put out by the inability to export Apple Card statements in a format you can import elsewhere? Apple has finally made CSV export possible. The drama of the week came from Reuters, which published an article claiming that Apple dropped full encryption of iCloud backups at the FBI’s request; it seems more likely that Apple decided that being able to recover data for users who forgot their passwords was more important. Do you do a lot of work that requires small image sizes? Josh Centers reviews Realmac’s Squash, a fun and functional image compression tool available in the Setapp collection. Finally, Jeff Porten continues his CES coverage with a look at a robot suitcase, Wi-Fi gear that can also detect falls in a house without needing a wearable, and a bunch of wireless earbuds. Notable Mac app releases this week include ScreenFlow 9.0.2, Tinderbox 8.2.3, and SoundSource 4.2.
In the category of features that should have been present from the start, Apple has finally added a CSV data export capability for the Apple Card. Here’s how to get your data out. How you import it into your personal finance package is up to you.
Reuters is reporting that Apple dropped plans to offer a stronger encryption option for iCloud backups under pressure from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Image compression, fun? Realmac Software’s Squash manages to add a bit of joy to a dull class of utilities. Also, there are surprising differences between image compression apps.
Jeff Porten checks in from another train with the items he saw at PEPCOM’s Digital Experience at CES, including chargers and robots, but so far no charging robots.
