72 hours with CarPlay: Test-driving Pioneer's new aftermarket system

Over at Macworld, Susie Ochs spent a few days using one of Pioneer's new after-market CarPlay systems with her iPhone. Her thoughts?

CarPlay is cool, and if I was buying a car that had it, I would be stoked to use it—but I'm not going to upgrade the stereo that's in my 2006 Subaru to this aftermarket Pioneer system.

128 GB iPhone 6 Plus and sensational "recall" headlines

There are some incredibly sketchy, borderline irresponsible allegations coming out of Korea that claim there's a "huge potential recall" facing the 128GB version of the iPhone 6 Plus. There isn't. Certainly nothing that Apple has initiated and apparently nothing they themselves have come even remotely close to making a case for. So what's going on here?

How to start several CSS transitions at once

The following is excerpted from CSS Animation: An Interactive Guide by Vicki Murley.

You've seen several examples throughout this book where a single CSS property is animated. But to create more advanced effects, you may want to animate more than one property at a time. The previous section showed multiple ways to define transitions for multiple CSS properties, on the same element. For example:

Retina 5K: iMac Target display mode and Thunderbolt display

Two of the questions we're still getting asked a lot is whether the Retina 5K iMac can be used in "target display mode" as an external monitor for a new Mac Pro or MacBook Pro, or whether Apple will be releasing a 5K version of their Thunderbolt display any time soon. Sadly, as I tweeted right after the Apple's October Event, and later explained, the answer to the first question is, sadly, "no", and the answer to the second question is the same. Why is that?

NSFW: What's your favorite writing tool?

NSFW is a weekly op-ed column in which I talk about whatever's on my mind. Sometimes it'll have something to do with the technology we cover here on iMore; sometimes it'll be whatever pops into my head. Your questions, comments and observations are welcome.

Now that it's November, it's officially the start of NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month. Once again I'm going to be on the sidelines, though I alternately envy and pity those participating. NaNoWriMo has me thinking about the act of writing and how technology plays into it, both for me and for countless others.

On PCalc, widgets, and how the App Store works

Earlier today PCalc developer James Thomson was advised by Apple that he'd have to update his app to remove its Today view widget functionality. This comes over a month after PCalc, with exactly that functionality, was approved by the App Store review team and featured by the App Store editorial team. So, what happened?

Understanding CSS Transitions

The following is excerpted from CSS Animation: An Interactive Guide by Vicki Murley.

When the value of a CSS property changes, a web browser immediately renders the result of that change. For example, if you use JavaScript to change the value of the opacity property on an element from 1 to 0, the element immediately disappears. CSS Transitions allow changes in CSS property values to occur smoothly over a period of time, thus creating an animated effect.

In-depth look at CurrentC and the personal data they want to collect

Just as quickly as CurrentC popped into the limelight, questions arose around the companies intentions. Even though I don't have an invite for CurrentC's invite-only mobile payments and loyalty rewards system, I decided to take a look. I posted some initial findings on Twitter and a brief summary on iMore, but wanted to do a more in-depth technical post for anybody who was curious.

Why is the CurrentC app collecting your device information?

Over the last few days, CVS and Rite Aid have disabled NFC technology at their retail outlets to prevent customers from using Apple Pay. It's been reported that this is due to an existing deal in place with a system called CurrentC, which involves the use of an app, QR codes, your bank account, and their servers. Walmart recently explained MCX's — the consortium behind CurrentC — position to Business Insider as follows:
