Macintosh Magazine HFS Wrapper is a popular and reliable Mac OS X file system. The HFS+ volume could be made to contain within the HFS file system volume in a way that make it look like the HFS volume and not the HFS+ volume to your system. The HFS Wrapper file system proves beneficial in computers, which does not support HFS+ file system volumes.

In such critical situations, Mac Data Recovery is required to retrieve lost, missing or inaccessible data. In a practical scenario, when you run the Disk First Aid utility to make sure ... (more)

Tech Thoughts for 2013

Last year, we saw three trends making lots of noise and a fourth one closely following – Cloud Computing, Big Data, Mobility, and Social Networking for the enterprise. Let me comment on each one as we enter 2013. In cloud computing, the focus shifts to Platform as a Service (PaaS) as SaaS is now accepted into the mainstream. CRM and HR applications dominate the space with SalesForce.com and Workday as leaders. Microsoft, for example, is evolving its Windows Azure from a PaaS to Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Last year, it added persistent-state virtual machine support to Azure, allowing it to accommodate a wider variety of software, including Linux. Microsoft also introduced Hadoop for Azure and support for MapReduce. Amazon’s AWS stack now blurs the boundary between PaaS and IaaS. SalesForce.com wants to be a PaaS player via its Force.com platform for develop... (more)

4.7 Billion Mobile WebRTC Devices by 2018 | @ThingsExpo [#WebRTC]

Even though Apple and Microsoft haven’t commented on the new open source technology which delivers high quality audio and video capabilities to desktop and mobile browsers, major carriers such as AT&T and Telefónica, leading infrastructure providers like Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson and new WebRTC application providers in likes of Teledini and NetDev are driving the technology forward. Research analyst, Sabir Rafiq comments, “WebRTC brings many opportunities; ABI Research believes major trends will start to form within the enterprise market with WebRTC. Companies will be willing to implement the new technology to aid productivity and reduce communication barriers within the workplace.” ABI Research recognizes that there are significant barriers in the way of WebRTC technology becoming widely adopted. Firstly, Apple is not showing any interest in WebRTC, similar to ... (more)

Strategies for Winning Cloud Storage Wars: Google, Microsoft & Dropbox

It looks like Google wants to have the cloud to itself. In March, the company decreased prices for Google Drive and it is hoping to annihilate its main competitors, namely Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive. The battle for cloud supremacy has just started, and Google has once again turned the market upside down. The company slashed prices by 80%; users have 15 GB at their disposal in Google Drive Cloud Storage, which they can use for free. If you subscribe for 100 GB, you will be paying $1.99 rather than $4.99, and for 1 TB the price is $9.99/month instead of $49.99. OneDrive vs. Dropbox vs. Google Drive As opposite to OneDrive and Dropbox, Google’s storage services are incredibly inexpensive. Many users agree that the company is absolutely crazy for reducing the prices, yet they’re certainly not complaining. Surprisingly, Dropbox has higher fees than OneDrive; it charges... (more)

Damn You Google, Damn You Yahoo! Why D'Ya Do This to Us?

A strange dynamic has taken hold on the internet.  Just as people expect sunshine and air to be free, they also expect internet based software applications to be free.  Ok, maybe not completely free… they agree someone should pay, just not them.  Damn you Google, damn you Yahoo! why did you do this to us? With companies left and right offering full versions of their products for free,  users have been conditioned NOT to pay for anything.  This conditioning can be seen across everything from social media sites to messaging to business applications.  The problem with this as I see it is the negative impact on innovation. Users think that they win by getting free software or services, but do they really?  If you ask me the only real winners in the free ecosystem are the investors behind well funded companies.  By locking down markets with free offerings companies can ...

iPhone Developer Summit: iPhone Testing (or Lack Thereof)

On Monday, Apple announced a whole bunch of exciting and innovative new products.  Two of the more anticipated were the iPhone 3GS and version 3.0 of the iPhone software.  Both of these introduce interesting new features for iPhone users everywhere.  You can watch the entire keynote here. Apple’s keynote presentation went very well, but there were a couple of snags while demoing some of the new iPhone apps.  Two different apps had problems with their demos.  One app had an issue with some on-stage props, but the other simply stopped working in the middle of its presentation. The presenters for both apps recovered and continued to highlight other features of their products.  However, I can’t exactly fault them for having trouble.  In fact, what actually surprised me was that so many of the apps worked given how difficult Apple makes testing iPhone apps. Here’s rough... (more)

Nokia N97 Mini Leaked

Last month a Vodafone employee let slip the N97 would be getting a smaller counterpart, but obviously this wall was all rumours. Apparently though he was right and pictures and information have “leaked” onto t’internet. The noticeable difference is the smaller screen and chassis. The D-Pad on the keyboard has been removed and the 32GB of memory has apparently been dropped to 8GB although you can still upgrade no doubt with microSD. Unfortunately no date was leaked with it, but expect it to be Nokia’s attempt to draw back some customers from Apple, with a lower priced smartphone. The N97 is a great phone, will the mini live up to its big brother.
