MailButler review: The supercharged personal assistant for Apple Mail

Critics are quick to dismiss Apple’s built-in Mail app on OS X, but I prefer Mail over the new kids on the block, simply because it works and doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. Of course, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some features in those rival apps I’d like to see make their way into Mail; the ability to schedule outgoing emails for a later date or save messages to Evernote, for example. As it turns out, I don’t have to abandon an old favorite for greener pastures to get these cool features.At your service Billed as “your personal assistant for Apple Mail,” MailButler is a bundle of plugins that extend the capabilities of Apple’s email client. I’m talking about new features like uploading attachments to cloud services other than iCloud Drive, following up on sent emails that have gone unanswered, and both of my wish list features noted above.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

A literal double standard: iPhone memory demands

You’ve heard, of course, about the Apple double standard, where a different set of rules apply to Apple than every other company out there because…. well, because Apple, that’s why. Writing for Mashable, Stan Schroeder takes the Apple double standard a little too literally. “Hey, 32GB iPhone 7, I already hate you.” (Tip o’ the antlers to 10at10.) Rumors of the base iPhone 7 sporting 32GB aren’t good enough for Schroeder. I expect the iPhone 7 to be among the best phones out there, and to achieve that, Apple would finally have to do something unexpected—even if it’s so simple as jumping from 16GB base storage to 64GB for the cheapest option.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

What’s hidden in plain sight? Hidden media in Photos for OS X

Dan Wieder wanted to track down a mismatch for his daughter between the images stored on her Mac and what was being synchronized via iTunes to an iPad: Looking in the album, she can see it has 1,308 photos. But when it syncs to the iPad, only 1,026 photos get synced. I tried the usual things with removing the photos from the iPad and resyncing, rebuilding the Photos Library, etc. So far, it still said 1,026 photos were synced. I asked Dan to check whether or not the images were externally referenced, something that Photos allows, but which isn’t always obvious. And which shouldn’t have made a difference in syncing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Microsoft’s new iOS app can bring your toy car collection online

One of the tough things about having an awesome collection of physical objects is that it can be difficult to share them with people far away. After all, what good is having a collection of dolls action figures taking over your house if you can’t foist them on someone halfway across the globe?That’s a problem that Microsoft Research Cambridge is trying to solve with the private beta of a new iOS app called Thinga.Me. It’s an app that lets users clip objects out of digital photos and then arrange them on virtual shelves for easy sharing online. The company has a few examples of how it works already, showing off different collections of figurines, family photos, bottles of beers and pottery on the Thinga.Me website. It’s all powered by computer vision technology that Microsoft Research has built to separate individual objects from the background of photos called GrabCut.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

For the middle of summer, so much is going on! Glenn and Susie (just back from vacation) are joined by staff writer Caitlin McGarry to discuss the death of our favorite Facebook app ever, Facebook Paper. And then while we're at it, we chat about what Spotify's problem is and why Apple absolutely should buy Tidal. In security news, the iCloud hacker plead guilty, making us wonder about the proper penalties for phishing. Apple's Gatekeeper is causing headaches again. And Glenn explains why just putting tape over your MacBook's microphone isn't going to do anything.
