MEGA Sync Client for Mac OS X

MEGA Sync Client for Mac OS X

Finally a desktop cloud sync client that doesn’t suck.

The long awaited release of MEGA’s Mac OS X sync client is here and yes it is OS X Yosemite ready.  The battery impact is low, and the upload speed is just as incredible as using it through Safari/Chrome so there’s no worry of sacrificing anything you need.

With MEGA sync creating it’s own directory folder in the sidebar of your Finder you…

Apple’s Micro Social Network iMessage

Apple’s Micro Social Network iMessage

With Facebook on the way out like MySpace, Twitter staying true to tweeting and Google+ still being the redheaded step child, people are wondering where to turn to next.  Instagram is nice but you don’t really care about pictures of your friends kids, and liking those pictures just becomes a fucking job.  People are wondering what is next?  Will it have people to follow?

Well.  Yes and no.  Apple…

Apple’s Small iCloud Disappointment from WWDC 2014

Apple’s Small iCloud Disappointment from WWDC 2014

icloud LogoWith WWDC 2014 being a massive deal for developers, and iCloud getting a huge boost by turning into iCloud drive, there were some disappointments at least on my end.

Why was I disappointed (slightly)?  Because Apple did what Mega Syncalready does.  Being able to save files that aren’t really iOS accessible to a cloud device via e-mail or Safari (what have you).  Given that iCloud backs up your…

iOS 8, OS X 10.10 and Developer Rumor WWDC Preview

iOS 8, OS X 10.10 and Developer Rumor WWDC Preview

With iOS 7 being a huge leap for Apple, iOS 8 may be complimentary to it instead of a radical addition of features.  Rather the focus may be more on OS X, and the long outdated design of the desktop.  iOS 8 is expected to have HealthBook to go along with the iWatch that should release this Fall, but here’s more on what to possibly expect.

iOS 8 May Add Multi-Screen/PiP Functionality

With rumors getting heavier about the iPhone 6, and even stronger rumors of an OS X re-vamp in design to closer match the subtle layer style of iOS 7/8.  Rumors are also coming around of iOS 8 including multi-screen or picture in picture functionality, but with limited use as to iPhone generations.

A post from anonymous information sharing platform Secret claims an ex-disgruntled Apple employee leaked the EarPods headphone secret that will have integrated heart rate and blood pressure sensors, along with an iBeacon.  As this is just a random post, it’s a fairly accurate idea to an insightful view on how Apple plans to bring biometrics into play.

Now the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a built in heart rate monitor (primarily software) as they use the same technique the iPhone 5S uses to measure heart rate by pressing your fingertip against the iPhone camera/dual LED flash.  This however, will introduce automatic readings of heart rate and blood pressure sensors in the most logical and accurate of arteries the Carotid.

Seeing as how when a person is checked for a pulse they usually check the carotid artery (neck), which is just where the current EarPods drape over with their cord.  This will leave a person handsfree to Siri their heart rate and blood pressure as they are exercising for instance.  No more picking up your phone and using the camera to check your levels.

Apple’s new EarPods will have sensors in them, for heart rate & blood pressure. Also iBeacons so they don’t get lost. They will require the lightning port, it’s why the audio jack was moved to the bottom. 

It stores the data in a similar way to thumbprint point data, fully encrypted and nothing identifiable. But nice to send to your doctor to keep track of at which point your blood pressure started rising for example.  

Redesigned remote too. Extra mic for better noise canceling.

It is plausible to say that there will be 2 versions of the EarPods with slight re-designs.  One with just a redesigned remote and mic for better noise canceling, and the other carrying those along with the blood pressure and heart rate monitors at a higher price tag.

Apple has had remnants of patents filed from 2006/2007 of sensors being implements to products to collect physiological data, so this is nothing insanely new as far as technology is concerned.  However, it is extremely convenient for keeping up with your doctors if you suffer from health problems or are just basically a health nut.

Since iOS 7′s release a HealthBook has been heavily rumored for iOS 8 with a mass amount of health-related information.  The upcoming heavily rumored iWatch is expected to have biometrics included, and this can launch a unified health related technology platform for Apple that has been rumored for years now.

A close concept from @AppleInternal‘s twitter account via @downhoard this morning (US time) showcases the iWatch prototypes and screenshots of the home screen.

Now there are some notes to point out:

  • The iWatch C looks like it came from a cereal box with the wrist band
  • The first iWatch ad shown in the gallery has Vodafone NL
  • The premium version of the iWatch looks very sleek and classy, but Apple may have a slap bracelet that reflects the current leather look in their iPhone 5S cases
  • iWatch C store ad looks distorted
  • Screenshots are very plausible however as they mimic the iOS 7 look and feel (also missing a comma in the digital clock screenshot)

So yet another but yet possibly close concept to the Apple iWatch has been released, but the iOS 7 screenshots look close to what could be the UI of the iWatch.

This is a far shot from the slap bracelet outlined in their patent Application from back in February 2013, but it could be a great competitor still for the Samsung Galaxy Watch that is currently available to the public.

Watch out (no pun intended) and look out for 3D rendered leaks, and follow @MacMurmur on twitter for more as Apple news develops.

Comcast Streaming TV to Apple TV in 2015

Comcast Streaming TV to Apple TV in 2015

comcast-logo

Comcast will be streaming live TV through Apple TV in 2015 as per a inside source.  Comcast has been in talks with Apple for a long time going, and the only thing holding Apple from streaming is Comcast’s infrastructure.  Comcast definitely has the technology to stream TV to the Apple set-top box, but it’s still in it’s infancy as far as being able to handle the data.

Possibly one of the best puzzle games ever made, Monument Valley from ustwo  has hit the top charts on the iOS App Store.  Using geometric visuals to throw your perception, this puzzle game is guaranteed to have you going, “Woah! Whaaaat?!” by the mind boggling designs.  If you’ve dabbled in 3D then prepare for a mobile masterpiece with the complexity of the manipulative world full of optical illusions.

Rather than spoil the story, let us just talk about the sheer addictiveness and fun from playing a tripped out M. C. Escher experience.  At first you might check your drink and think somebody slipped you some crazy hallucinogen, but have no fear it’s all an illusion to begin with.  The careful attention to detail is noticeable from the splash game when you first launch the app.  Crisp, clean and well-timed animation sequences give a relaxing yet mentally intriguing experience bending perception like no other.

Basically you need to navigate princess Ida around Crow People by manipulating the world around you to find your path in the maze.  The ability to rotate your game play and manipulate is subtle yet in a perfect position to make you look for clues in unorthodox visual perceptions.

The sound effects are clean, precisely timed and pleasant to the ear, so there’s no worry about annoying sounds that are repetitive.  You’ll have 10 brain screwing puzzles to navigate and manipulate which is pretty good when you consider the overall quality of the game and the challenge it gives.  In some examples below in the gallery you’ll see how one level (same colors) can drastically change when you’re only about half way done with getting through it.

Not being a big fan of most puzzle games on iOS I found this to be surprisingly one of the best games I had ever played on an iPhone or iPad. There’s no score.  No leaderboards.  Just brain teasing fun.  You can even save your favorite puzzle visuals by screen shot in the game from the Top Left navigation menu.  Share it instantly with friends from Facebook or Twitter and show them what they’re missing out on.

Now it is fairly short for some people, but there is a big chance that we could see more puzzles added in later dates.  It will run you $3.99 (US) on the App Store [Direct App Store Link]
