How to exclude files from Time Machine backups

How to exclude files from Time Machine backups

Sometimes you don't want Time Machine to back up your files. Here's how to keep that from happening.

Time Machinee, Apple's built-in backup utility, is actually pretty smart about figuring out what to save and what to skip on your Mac. OS X by default excludes a whole bunch of stuff from Time Machine that Apple engineers know the Mac just doesn't need in order to work right after restoring from a backup. There are times, however, when you might want to make it a bit smarter. It could be big but temporary files that would just eat up space, or private files you don't want duplicated anywhere, even for back up. Either way, with a few simple tweaks, you can more storage capacity out of your Time Machine backup disk and spend less time backing up, too.

The future of WWDC will be streamed live

The future of WWDC will be streamed live

Not too many years ago it took what felt like months to get the session videos following WWDC. This year, it'll be near-instant.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference — WWDC 2015 — is set for June 8 at Moscone West. That means a week of sessions for developers, where Apple engineers give presentations on everything from the latest and greatest new frameworks to the core technologies that enable them. All with the goal of helping everyone make better apps.

Since not all developers can fit it into the physical building or get to every session, Apple provides videos that the developers can watch later and repeatedly. Over the least two years Apple, and its events and worldwide developer relations teams, have done everything they can to get those session videos posted just as fast as they can. This year, however, they're taking not just a step but a leap forward — this year some of the sessions will be streamed live.

Apple doesn't need $178 billion of cash to change the world

Apple doesn't need $178 billion in cash to change the world

Apple doesn't need $178 billion of cash to change the world

In order to see why Apple doesn't need $178 billion of cash for its business, it is crucial to examine how Apple operates and thinks about products.

Apple has a functional organizational structure, not one based on product groups or some other type of hierarchy. That makes it easy for the company to shift attention to new products as needed. Despite having 46,000 non-retail Apple employees, Apple is a nimble company able to respond to changing market dynamics quickly and efficiently. Apple's strengths include allowing ideas to be born from close collaboration at a very early stage and offering an environment that fosters the nurturing of fragile ideas through the development process. Many larger companies are simply unable to capture this type of "start-up" mentality. For Apple, large scale M&A with a significant capital footprint does not fit too well in such a structure.
