How to use Find My iPhone: The ultimate guide

Find my iPhone, sometimes also called Find my iPad or Find my Mac when referring to the same app running on those devices, is a free service offered by Apple as part of iCloud. With it, you can track your iPhone, iPad, or Mac if it ever gets lost or stolen, lock it to make sure no one else can get into it, play an alert sound to help you find it, and even wipe it remotely if you're sure you won't be getting it back. It also enabled Activation Lock, which stops anyone without your password for using your device if it's ever stolen.

To use Find my iPhone all you need is the free app, iCloud.com, and this guide!

How to watch the 2015 NFL Super Bowl XLIX for free on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac

Super Bowl XLIX kicks off on February 1, 2015 at 3:30pm PT, 6:30pm ET. If you don't have tickets and aren't there to watch it in person, the next best thing is to watch it on as large a TV set as you can find, with as many friends, beverages, and snacks as possible. If you can't get home, to a friends, or to a sports bar, however, there are several ways you can watch on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac — or on your Apple TV via AirPlay. Thanks to rights and exclusivity agreements, it varies by region and even by carrier, but here are your options!

What would you change about Apple's Messages app?

What would you change about Apple's Messages app?

What would you change about Apple's Messages app?

Messages launched with the original iPhone as "SMS", because that's all it did at the time. Apple had Safari, so they didn't build an old-school WAP browser and it turned out an old-school WAP browser is what MMS used and needed. So, Apple built one and, once carriers stopped freaking out about the potential bandwidth, added it to the app. Then Apple did an end-run and announced iMessage, integrated alongside MMS and SMS in the Messages app, and running on data completely outside carrier control. They brought it to iPad and Mac. Most recently, Apple enhanced group messaging, added instant sound-bites, selfies, and with SMS-relay brought the carriers to iPad and Mac as well.

Now we want to know what you'd like to see next?

Apple Watch, WatchKit, and false expectations

Apple Watch, WatchKit, and false expectations

There's a blog post making the rounds about how useless Apple Watch is without an iPhone, how pessimistic its future is for developers, and how Apple hasn't delivered on what they "promised" at the event last September. In other words, it represents rage against a fantasy world very unlike the real one in which Apple very carefully set expectations at the event, on the product [preview pages, and in the developer resources that followed.

Still betting long on Apple

Still betting long on Apple

Still betting long on Apple

On the heels of Apple's Q1 2015 earnings, the company's stock reached a new all-time high of $120 during today's trading session. While I really don't care too much about short term stock price movements, this particular move in Apple's stock is a reflection of investor optimism following the most monstrous quarter ever seen.

It's true. In case you didn't catch the headlines from Tuesday, Apple's $18 billion quarterly profit for Q1 fiscal 2015 is the largest quarterly profit of any company in the world in all of history.

Plenty has been written following the quarterly report, so instead of rehashing all of the numbers I'd like to focus on what it all means to the stock longer term. I've been a shareholder of Apple since 2007 and haven't traded single share since that time. So when I look at technology companies from an investment angle I really do walk the long term talk. I think attempting to time the market is a recipe for disaster for most people (including myself), and I'd prefer to make decade plus long bets on quality growth companies. Apple still fits the bill for me.

How to view WebM video on your iPhone or iPad

How to view WebM video on your iPhone or iPad

Google's WebM video file format has become nichely popular in the years since its debut. As a royalty-free alternative to H.264 standard, it's used for high-quality-but-low-bandwidth videos on sites like YouTube, Reddit, 4chan, and the like. I'm not going to get into the reasons why people might prefer WebMs to gifs, MP4s, MKVs, or FLVs; frankly, I see it as a personal/site-specific preference. But here's the thing: those people who desperately want to view WebMs on their iPhone? They run into a bit of a snag when using a mobile web browser.

Because Apple's QuickTime player codec doesn't support WebM. That means no WebM videos in Safari, no WebM videos in Chrome (which uses the same WebKit-based rendering engine on iOS), no WebM videos in any third-party browser or any app integrating a web view.

But don't woe over WebM just yet: There's a third-party app to save you from your troubles.
