RE: Apple Updates GarageBand for Mac and iPhone: New Drummers, Apple Music Connect, Force Touch

I'm still waiting for them to bring back the Podcast track so I can upgrade. Don't worry, I'm not holding my breath.

RE: One Month Report: Why I'm Loving my Apple Watch

Yeah, sorry @wab95. We're having a caching issue on just this article and I keep having to flush it manually before comments show up. We're trying to find the root cause and working on a more permanent fix, but for now there may be delays before the comments appear on this article.

RE: One Month Report: Why I'm Loving my Apple Watch

They should be appearing now. Sorry for the issues.

RE: Mac Photos Beta Will Disappoint Aperture Users

Since it's come up here. I'll comment briefly, but if you're having technical issues with the site please always feel free to email webmaster@macobserver.com and we'll try to help. The auto-login does rely on cookies, so if you block cookies or clear cookies it can cause that feature to not work or to reset. Not assuming that IS what's happening, but one thing to consider.

RE: How to Type an Apple Symbol in iOS

It would be even better if Mac’s System Preferences Synced its Symbol and Text Substitutions with iCloud, so that the exactly same Keyboard Shortcuts would work on Mac and iOS!
Actually if you've enabled Documents & Data syncing in iCloud i believe the shortcuts should sync between your Macs and iDevices

RE: How to Type an Apple Symbol in iOS

Or what if @BurmaYank was going to travel to Phoenix, AZ? It helps to possibly have a "modifier" symbol in front of the shortcut. I choose a comma like ",az" because 1) you typically type a space after a comma, and 2) the comma in on the iOS keyboard on an iPad without having to go to the secondary "symbol" keyboard.

RE: How to Type an Apple Symbol in iOS

@BurmaYank: That woks if you use iCloud and have Documents & Data syncing turned on. I'm not sure that is going to carry over into iCloud Documents in iOS 8 or not. @Lee Dronick: As I mentioned in the article. It's font dependent. Not all fonts have the Apple symbol mapped to that unicode. The font here on TMO maps it to the Command () symbol as you discovered.

RE: Raspberry Pi: An Approachable, Fun Single Board Computer

I got one for Xmas in a "Make" kit from Radio Shack. It was nice because it included the OS already on an SD card. It also came with some add-on stuff including a breadboarding kit, a case, and a book. http://www.makershed.com/Raspberry_Pi_Starter_Kit_p/msrpik.htm I programmed it to recognize button presses on some hardware switches and trigger various audio clips. Now I'm thinking of trying it out as a PLEX Media Center Client by running RasPLEX, http://rasplex.com
