How to switch carriers on the iPad Air 2's Apple SIM

For those of you who like to surf cellular networks on your iPad over the Wi-Fi variety, the Pad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 come with a special bonus: Apple's self-titled Apple SIM. The nano-SIM is identical to your typical iPad cellular SIM, with one key difference: It supports on-the-fly connections to multiple different cellular carriers.

Goal Zero has made a big name for itself as purveyors of a whole family of smartphone-friendly solar chargers, and we got a chance to check out some of their latest products, the Switch 10 battery stick and the larger Torch 250.

I had used some of Goal Zero's solar chargers on Android devices in the past, and wanted to have a go with their latest offerings before the sun was blotted out for 8 months with Canadian snow and woefully shorter days.

How to use Handoff on iPhone and iPad

How to use Handoff on iPhone and iPad

If you're running iOS 8 on your iPhone or iPad, you've got a new feature called Handoff, which is part of Continuity. The basic premise of Handoff is that you can start something on your iPhone, and pick up right where you left off on your iPad, or even your Mac, or vice versa. The best part is, as long as you've got Bluetooth enabled and your devices are all on the same wifi network, Handoff pretty much just works!

GT Advanced COO blames Apple for bankruptcy in detailed court declaration

GT Advanced COO blames Apple for bankruptcy in detailed court declaration

In a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for GT Advanced Technologies, the company's chief operating officer Daniel Squiller gave some explanation in a Supplemental Declaration to provide information about what went wrong in the deal that would have GTAT produce sapphire for Apple. Citing changes in specs later in the negotiation period leading to higher than anticipated manufacturing costs, an obligation to produce solely for Apple whereas Apple doesn't have to buy any of the sapphire produced by GTAT, and GTAT's inability to take control of the fabrication process from Apple, Squiller said that GTAT had no other choice but to file for bankruptcy.

Apple apparently doesn't want iOS 8 widgets to be smart

Apple tells developer of popular iOS 8 widget calculator to remove the widget

One of the coolest features of iOS 8 was the inclusion of support for widgets in the Notification Center on iPhone and iPad, but making full use of that feature has landed at least one developer in hot water. James Thomson, developer of the popular calculator app PCalc, was the recipient of a message from Apple informing him that having a widget in iOS 8 that performs calculations within notification center was not something he could do, and that it must be removed. This is in spite of PCalc being a featured app in the App Store for its calculating widget.
