Foxconn plans to cut its huge workforce due to higher labor costs [Update: No, it won't]

Foxconn plans to cut its huge workforce due to higher labor costs [Update: No, it won't]

Update: Foxconn has now told CNET that Reuters' story is "completely inaccurate and totally without foundation", adding, "As we continue to increase the application of automation in our operations, the magnitude of our employee recruitment is expected to decrease in the years ahead, but we have no plans to reduce our workforce numbers now or anytime in the future."

Original story: Foxconn, the main manufacturing partner for Apple, will reduce its huge workforce in the face of higher labor costs and lower revenues. The move comes even as Apple is expecting to reveal high sales for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus later today, both of which are made at Foxconn factories.

Hey Instagram, can we talk about your still-missing iPad app?

Hey Instagram, can we talk about your still-missing iPad app?

I've been using Instagram for a long time. I almost always post my photos to Instagram and then share from there to Facebook and Twitter. I use it enough that I've become somewhat inured to its common limitations — its rough edges and brick walls — most people run into every day. Hearing John Gruber discuss them with Ben Thompson on The Talk Show this week, however, made them all front-of-mind for me again. As such, here are five frustrations I currently have that I'd like to see Instagram tackle this year.

How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

Once you've posted a photo using Instagram, the incredibly popular social photo network, it's locked into its tiny filtered form. Instagram doesn't even let you download it after the fact — you need to screenshot it or resort to a third-part ripper, even for your own photos. What Instagram does let you do, however, is set it to save a high resolution "2048x2048" version of your final, filtered photo to your camera roll as you post it. (I put the resolution in quotes because it really seems to vary, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes higher.) To save those original photos, all you have to do is enable the feature.

Building classic Mac OS apps in OS X

Building classic Mac OS apps in OS X

We live in a modern era of Mac development, but behind that there's 30 years of legacy dating back to the original Mac in 1984. It's easy to ignore the millions upon millions of lines of code that have been written for Mac operating systems from System 1.0 forward, but you do so at the peril of forgetting just how flexible and elegant a framework Apple had developed over the years.
