The terrifying picture above is a blister beetle photographed with a Macroscopic Solutions Macropod. The company’s website describes its product as “a rigid, portable photomacrography system, which allows the user to make razor sharp, fully focused photographs of small sized specimens at 18 to 26-megapixel resolution.”

What the Macropod can do is take multiple three-dimensional images, merge them together, and create a single ultra-hi-def image using its software.

Yosemite Spotlight Search Data Collection

Why you shouldn’t be worried that Yosemite is tracking you (and what to do if you are)

Why you shouldn’t be worried that Yosemite is tracking you (and what to do if you are)

By about 2 hours ago.

Following the official release of Apple’s latest desktop operating system, news broke that OS X Yosemite secretly sends Spotlight search data to Apple (including location information), even though the company doubled down on privacy and security more than once in recent weeks. However, things aren’t as bad as you might think, and Apple’s data collection is done in a specific way that actually prevents the company from tracking you. Finally, data collection isn’t covert because Apple clearly explains it, and it can be easily turned off if you so desire, something Apple also explains how to do. More →

Here’s how you can easily get iOS 8.1’s best new features on your Android phone

By about 2 hours ago.

Apple finally released iOS 8.1 to the public on Monday, and OS X Yosemite was released late last week to Mac users. That means that after months of waiting, users who own both a Mac computer and an iPhone can finally enjoy the complete Continuity experience that Apple first showed off this past June during WWDC. We’ve been using and enjoying Continuity with our iPhone but the recent release of iOS 8.1 is a great reminder that Android users have had this type of functionality for years now thanks to one great free app. More →

Android 5.0 Features

Android 5.0 will bring one of the new Moto X’s coolest features to all Android phones

By about 3 hours ago.

When we reviewed Motorola’s new Moto X last month, we didn’t mince words. All things considered, the second-generation Moto X was and still is the best Android phone on the planet. The customization options are unparalleled, the hardware and build quality are top notch, the display is beautiful and the performance is impressive. It really is the total package. The best things about the Moto X may be the great voice controls and other convenience enhancements Motorola added to Android on the Moto X, and now one of the coolest features from the Moto X is apparently coming to all top Android phones in Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

iPhone 6 Plus Sold Out

This is one ‘problem’ Apple is happy to have

This is one ‘problem’ Apple is happy to have

By about 4 hours ago.

Apple on Monday announced record results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus having played a crucial role despite being available in stores for only 10 days during the period. The company sold more than 10 million units during launch weekend, and that doesn’t even include China. The phones were released in the largest market in the world about a month later, where they were met with huge demand, with many buyers purchasing the phablet version, according to unofficial estimates.

Following its previous reports that largely said the same thing, Digitimes is again saying that Apple is going to increase iPhone 6 Plus manufacturing volumes in order to “satisfy strong demand from China.” More →

By about 4 hours ago.

In case you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for yourself or a special someone this Christmas, you should consider placing an order as fast as possible, to actually be able to have it shipped, wrapped, and neatly hidden underneath a Christmas tree. Otherwise, finding an iPhone 6, and especially iPhone 6 Plus, in stores right before Christmas is something less likely to happen, as Apple is selling everything it can manufacture. Tim Cook said during Apple’s Q4 conference call that the company can’t determine yet whether supply will meet demand this quarter. More →

By about 5 hours ago.

Apple absolutely crushed its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings. Even the most bullish estimates were light when Apple revealed on Monday that it racked up a massive $8.5 billion net profit on $42.12 billion in sales — both records for the September quarter. The company sold 39.3 million new iPhone handsets in the quarter, which was also a record that was undoubtedly made possible by Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch last month.

To congratulate his team on Apple’s record-smashing quarter, Cook sent the following internal letter to his staff: More →
