Stories of App Store success...and failure

GDC is giving developers on both sides of the App Store success story a chance to share their tales of triumph and woe.

Success in life isn't guaranteed, and that's especially true on the App Store, where fortunes can be made by developers that hit it big. But most developers aren't that lucky. This week's Game Developer Conference (GDC) is giving devs a chance to tell both sides of the App Store story: Unimaginable riches, and unimaginable heartache.

Apple Watch: Should you get one?

Apple Watch: Should you get one?

If you have an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, or iPhone 6 Plus, you can use the Apple Watch. But should you get one?

As we come closer to the Apple Watch's sale date, it's the big-ticket question. Most people need a phone. Many people need a computer. Like an iPad, however, the Watch feels like an extra accessory, and that can make it harder to figure out if you need it or not. So, let's break down the decision process and make it a little bit easier.

Apple to patch 'FREAK Attack' vulnerability in iOS, OS X next week

Apple to patch 'FREAK Attack' vulnerability in iOS, OS X next week

Apple to patch 'FREAK Attack' vulnerability in iOS, OS X next week

"FREAK Attack" is an SSL/TLS vulnerability disclosed by researchers on March 3, 2015 that can be exploited to force browsers into a weaker encryption state.

Attackers can theoretically use FREAK Attack to intercept what should be a secure HTTPS connection — the one with the lock icon in the address bar — and downgrade the encryption to "export-grade", which is much easier to crack. Safari, both on OS X and iOS, among other browsers, can be susceptible to FREAK Attacks, but Apple is aware of the exploit and moving swiftly to patch it:

"We have a fix in iOS and OS X," an Apple spokesperson told iMore, "that will be available in software updates next week."

Why the Mac may be poised for double-digit market share

Why the Mac may be poised for double-digit market share

Why the Mac may be poised for double-digit market share

As an analyst who studies the PC — personal computer — industry amongst many other categories, it's been fascinating to watch the story of the Mac unfold.

At a high-level, based on many of the theories taught in business school, the Mac should not be gaining share against the once dominant Windows PC ecosystem. For the 2000-2010 sales period, the Mac averaged 3% share of annual sales. Now, at the end of 2014 the Mac was just over 6%. It's been steadily rising as a percent of annual PC sales. I genuinely believe Apple's share of the PC industry is poised for growth but what dynamics have changed from a decade where they averaged 3% to a new era where they are poised for growth?

Garmin vivosmart fitness tracker review

Garmin vivosmart fitness tracker review

Garmin's next generation fitness tracker trades in a year's worth of battery life for notifications, a slimmer design, music controls, and more.

For some, the trade-off is a no brainer, for others, not so much.

Once you put on the Garmin vivosmart, all you have to do is link it up with the Garmin Connect app on your iPhone. Once that's done you can not only set goals and view activity right on your wrist, you can also view notifications from your iPhone, receive inactive alerts, and lots more. But all of that matters little if the hardware and software don't do their job. The results? Let's find out!

Mac Help: Should I buy the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro?

Mac Help: The poor old 13-inch MacBook Pro

Mac Help: Should I buy the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro?

The 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro (called the "mid-2012" model, in Apple parlance) is still available from Apple.

It costs $1,099, making it cheaper than a Retina model by $200. Given that it's an older, slower machine that hasn't been updated since 2012, it's easy to overlook. But it's also the only MacBook that still ships with an optical drive, and that can be appealing for education and travel. That's what prompted this week's Mac Help questions from J.R.

The iOS 8 animation curve

The iOS 8 animation curve

Following the introduction of iOS 7 back in June of 2013, a common complaint from developers and designers was that the system animations took to long to complete, making the interface feel slow.

Apple sped up the animations before release, but for some they still felt too slow. Since iOS 8 didn't fundamentally change the animations curves, that perception has lingered.
