Don't want retailers shutting down NFC? Tell them with your Apple Pay-powered wallet!

Don't want retailers shutting down NFC? Tell them with your Apple Pay-powered wallet!

Apple Pay launched last week. In store, it's a secure way to pay for items using existing NFC technology, authorized by Touch ID fingerprint technology. It in no way precludes the use of other NFC-enabled payment systems, including credit and debit cards, or other platforms or apps. It's easy to use, lightning fast, and extremely customer friendly. It's also private, not releasing transactional information beyond what the retailer needs to process the payment. So, CVS and Rite Aid are both going so far as to disable NFC support in general just to make sure no one tries to use Apple Pay in their stores. Yes, they'd rather hobble their transactional systems entirely than let their customers use Apple Pay. They'd rather use their own system, CurrentC, which looks about as insecure, non-private, and poorly architected as you'd imagine it would.

Twitpic iOS app shut down but Twitter will keep domain and pictures online

The journey of the Twitpic online photo service has apparently reached an end. After a trademark dispute with Twitter, the service said it was shutting down in September, but later it claimed it had found a company willing to buy them and keep Twitpic going. Then that deal apparently evaporated. Today, Twitpic announced that Twitter has now agreed to take over its domain and, more importantly, will keep all of Twitpic's old photos online.

How to use Calendar for iPhone and iPad: The ultimate guide

Calendars help you keep track of what you're doing and when, which is why it's always been one of the core apps on mobile devices from the earliest PDA (personal digital assistants), to the latest iPhones and iPads. That why, when iOS launched in 2007, it included a Calendar app. Whether you simply use Calendar by itself, or whether you sync it via iCloud, Google Calendar, Microsoft, or something else, it's the default way to add and find appointments and events.

Retina iMac vs. Mac Pro: Which Mac powerhouse should you get?

Apple's introduction of the Retina iMac marks the first time that a desktop Macintosh has gotten the "Retina" treatment, and it's nothing short of stunning, capable of displaying 5K resolution.

What's on Georgia's iPhone 6 Plus right now!

What's on Georgia's iPhone 6 Plus right now!

Yes, I opted for the new iPhone 6 Plus because I've always wanted a bigger screen. A much bigger screen. And now I have it. For gaming, for watching videos, for surfing the web, it's just so much better that I'm willing to sacrifice the ability to easily type one handed. And yes, my Home screen is still pretty much default — I'm lazy! — so I'm including some of my favorite apps from my second screen as well. And yes, I still don't update applications very often. I don't like change. I don't like learning new interfaces, and I don't like that I can't go back to a older version of an app if anything goes wrong. It's my iPhone after all, and I get to use and abuse it just the way I want!

NSFW: Shut up about the new Mac mini, already

NSFW: Shut up about the new Mac mini, already

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.

I've seen endless bitching in blogs and social media about the new Mac mini Apple unveiled last week. So much so that I've seen some people recommending that you forget about the new Mac mini all together and get the older model if you can find it. That's incredibly stupid, because it ignores the actual needs of a lot of people who buy these things. Let me explain.
