Showtime’s Standalone Streaming Service Coming To Roku, PlayStation Vue

When Showtime debuted its standalone streaming service aimed at cord cutters last week, there was some speculation that Apple had  scored another exclusive for its platform, similar to its deal with HBO NOW, as Showtime noted it would initially be available on Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPod touch and Apple TV. It appears that Showtime was not locked into an exclusive deal after all, as the network announced today that the new service will also become available on Roku and Sony’s PlayStation Vue at launch.

Capcom Announces Mega Man Legacy Collection, Reveals E3 Lineup - IGN

Titled Mega Man Legacy Collection , this bundle from developer Digital Eclipse will feature "faithful reproductions" of all six original Mega Man titles, along with a Challenge Mode, which remixes gameplay segments from all six games. It will also feature a Museum Mode, containing a "comprehensive collection of history, high-res art and original concept pieces."

Apple Announces News Reading App

The app resembles Flipboard, a popular app that pulls content from users' social media accounts and presents it as a sleek digital publication of its own, allowing people to read the links they'd see on Twitter in a kind of digital magazine. For years there has been speculation that Apple or Twitter would buy Flipboard. By building its own version, Apple is creating a way for people to start associating their news-reading routine with their phones, rather than with applications that are easily accessed through other smartphone platforms. 

Swift 2.0 - Swift Blog

We are excited about the opportunities an open source Swift creates for our industry. Baked-in safety features combined with excellent speed mean it has the chance to dramatically improve software versus using C-based languages. Swift is packed with modern features, it’s fun to write, and we believe it will get used in a lot of places. Together, we have an exciting road ahead.

Apple's New Music Service Relies on Features, Not Free. So Those Features Better Be Awesome.

Hard to imagine it will be. Apple will almost certainly get some new releases for big-name artists before other people. But exclusives aren’t a new idea. And they don’t last long. Because while the music labels that own the music are happy to give a distributor a short-term boost in exchange for a check, they want to make sure they can sell their stuff in as many places as possible.


Probably the most profound dissimilarity is we didn’t design or build the human body. Consequently, we don’t fully understand how it works or how to fix it when it breaks. Placing sensors in or on the body isn’t trivial, unobtrusive, or without risk. Human beings have limited options when it comes to Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) — when an organ fails, generally we can’t simply order a replacement off the shelf. However, rather than weakening the case for the IoLT, these “shortcomings” make the case that much more compelling. If we only get one machine, and the proper maintenance of that machine is literally a matter of life and death, then it would seem we’d want the best sensoring and component service contract we can get. The case for the IoT is actually more compelling for living things than it is for manufactured products.

Apple To Launch New Flipboard-Like App, While Newsstand Goes Away

At the same time, Apple is going to do away with Newsstand, the app that stored and distributed newspapers and magazines, which some partners complained tended to bury its content. Individual publishers will sell apps within the app store like any other developer. This follows on the steps of familiar efforts from Facebook and Snapchat, as well as Flipboard, to publish content directly on their own apps.

Waiting for WWDC 2015? Our full roundup of everything Apple may reveal

There’s an elephant in the room, and it’s name is Beats. Apple bought Beats Music for $3 billion last year, but so far, nothing has come of the acquisition. However, WWDC may be the stage on which Apple launches the future of music-streaming on iOS. We’ve heard so much about the new service that we have a huge roundup post about all the latest rumors, and with just hours to go before the event, Sony Music CEO Doug Morris has seemingly confirmed its arrival in an interview.

Netflix lands Brad Pitt movie 'War Machine,' is now in another league

With an A-list actor in his prime signing on to partner with Netflix first, the streaming network has broken its last barrier to becoming a fully realized Hollywood content producer and distribution model.

Apple finally puts female executives on stage

It shouldn't be a notable event, but it is: an Apple developers conference with female executives appearing on stage. Jennifer Bailey, a 10-year Apple veteran and vice president of Apple Pay, described the new changes to the company's  mobile payments system (including support for the UK ) and vice president of product marketing Susan Prescott  outlined the company's News app . The conference isn't over yet though, and we hope we might see more from Apple's female exec team — including former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts.

4 ways retailers can improve supply chain management

To gain further visibility into the supply chain, “implement RFID,” says Melanie Nuce, vice president, Apparel & General Merchandise, GS1 US , a supply chain standards organization. “A more precise level of inventory visibility ensures the retailer knows where their product is in the supply chain. Standards, such as Electronic Product Code (EPC) enabled Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), are allowing leading retailers to pinpoint their inventory in real time,” she explains. “By using RFID, a retailer can inventory 20,000 items per hour at 99 percent accuracy or higher. All of this means a simpler, more efficient way to deliver on the promise to the consumer.” Furthermore, “by combining RFID-enabled inventory and source tagging with smarter, more sophisticated electronic article surveillance (EAS), retailers gain real-time insight into the supply chain, from what is available to sell via online and in-store channels to how much is needed on the shelf,” adds Sell.

Apple to rename Apple Watch operating system as 'watchOS'

The image is quite blurry but as you can see they seem to highlight Apple’s three platforms, namely iOS, OS X and watchOS. Until now, Apple has officially called the Apple Watch operating system as Watch OS, but based on the banner it looks like Apple is planning to rebrand it as watchOS .

Apple Watch apps will get much more useful with WatchOS 2

Why this matters: The Apple Watch is an exquisite piece of hardware, but one that can be extremely frustrating to use. Users are frequently confronted with loading screens, as third-party apps struggle to load everything they need from a paired iPhones. And when these apps finally load, most of them are of limited utility. The new powers that Apple is granting to app makers, along with some added features in WatchOS 2, should go a long way toward turning the Apple Watch into a useful accessory.

Apple's WatchOS 2 update brings native apps, new features

Along with native apps, Apple also revealed a spate of new features coming to WatchOS 2. To start with, you'll be able to reply to emails directly from the Watch, assuming you don't mind the tiny screen. There's also a bunch of new watch faces, including a Photo face that can be customized with your own images, and a Time-lapse Photo face that shows the passage of time at spots like the Big Ben clock.

Liveblog: Apple’s WWDC keynote starts at 10am Pacific on Monday

WWDC is always a launching ground for the next versions of iOS and OS X. Apple will share their biggest new features and the general direction for each release, will issue the first of half-a-dozen-or-so developer betas for both operating systems, and aim for a release in the fall. We'll also probably get an update on the Swift programming language and on the Apple Watch's native SDK .

The lost year of Beats Music and how that may not matter for Apple - CNET

Fewer people in the US visited Beats Music in April than a year earlier, right before Apple unveiled its takeover, making it the only service among the six main competitors in online streaming music to see that traffic fall, according to traffic scorekeeper ComScore. Internet radio service Pandora, on-demand streamer Spotify, user-uploaded audio site SoundCloud, and subscription services Rhapsody and Rdio all had increasing visits to their sites and apps across desktop and mobile between May 2014 and April 2015 -- while Beats' unique visitors slipped to 1.1 million from 1.4 million. By comparison, April saw Pandora rack up 86 million visitors and Spotify reach 38 million.

Halt and Catch Fire: "New Coke" Review - IGN

Watching Cameron and Donna work out their difficulties on the fly is engaging, but watching Cameron make the same mistakes over and over again is growing frustrating. If it was a case of both sides being right – Cameron’s decisions by the seat of her pants or Donna’s more logical business-minded solutions – then I could bare it. Instead, Cameron is always in the wrong and has refused to learn her lesson. Bringing in Bosworth could’ve been a great call on her part, but that decision proved fruitless. It was odd to see that storyline go nowhere other than to show Bos’ disconnect with the world at large. It would’ve been more interesting to see him confront the challenge head on and try to bring some organization to the Mutiny chaos.

Spotify plans to match Apple Music’s very cheap family plan

Apple rolled out its  new music service today . It has the very original name of Apple Music. Onstage the company said it would transform the listening experience for fans, and the creative act for artists. But by and large the service offers features you can already find in the market. The one place where did draw a line in the sand was on price. Apple offers a family plan that can be shared by up to six people for $14.99. Spotify and Rdio also offer family plans, but those cost $14.99 for two people, and $29.99 for five.

It’s a lost opportunity to personalize the content, as well as to build the relationship. But that’s not the only fatal flaw. "When it's obvious that you wrote the note ahead of time and planned to drop it off as you left, it drains much of the significance of the gesture and turns it into one that conveys only, ‘I'm checking a thank you off my list,’" Green says, referring to her first point.

The Paradox of the Proof

This foundational stone is one that mathematicians are proud of. The community works together; they are not cut-throat or competitive. Colleagues check each other’s work, spending hours upon hours verifying that a peer got it right. This behavior is not just altruistic, but also necessary: unlike in medical science, where you know you’re right if the patient is cured, or in engineering, where the rocket either launches or it doesn’t, theoretical math, better known as “pure” math, has no physical, visible standard. It is entirely based on logic. To know you’re right means you need someone else, preferably many other people, to walk in your footsteps and confirm that every step was made on solid ground. A proof in a vacuum is no proof at all.

iOS 9 will run on all iOS 8-compatible devices - CNET

Of course, just putting someone in the program doesn't guarantee that they'll succeed in getting permanently off the street. "Clearly it's challenging," says Murray. "You're asking someone to change their life. There's not anybody who wants to be on the streets, but there are people who find it difficult to do the things that you need to do to be off the streets. There are things that you and I take for granted—we have to get up, we have to go work, brush our teeth, follow society's rules about drugs and alcohol. People have to decide they want to do this, and that is difficult."

Apple Maps in iOS 9 adds public transit, local business search

Speaking from the stage at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference, senior vice-president Craig Federighi mentioned that Maps will soon provide dedicated maps and directions for public transit systems in a number of cities like San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, London, Paris, and over 300 locations in China. The company has gone as far as incorporating detailed surveys of individual subway stations into its data—a feature that makes the directions provided by Maps more accurate and timely.

New Ping Identity Platform Includes Apple Watch Authentication

Ping is trying to redefine itself to offer a more comprehensive policy-based approach to security with authentication at its core. While it is not necessarily breaking new ground (except perhaps that Apple Watch piece), it has put together a broad approach to authentication. What’s more, because it’s policy driven, it removes much of the burden that has traditionally fallen on the end user.

Penny Dreadful: "Glorious Horrors" Review - IGN

The great, gelling "Glorious Horrors" brought most everyone awkwardly together for a big bash at Dorian's pad - a celebration that wound up being as much about Lily's "debut" as it was for its intended, Angelique. Quick question first. Did anyone else think, for a second, that Vanessa might show up with John Clare on her arm? I mean, she mentioned his name to Victor in an earlier scene and she and John even shared that dance together last week. Sure, the show would really have had to sell the hell out of it since it would've taken a healthy dose of convincing to get John to "debut" as well, but the idea did cross my mind. And then John would've seen Victor and Lily and he would have gone nuts with rage know the scenario.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet.
