Djay for Apple Watch puts decks on your wrist


Desktop, laptop, tablet, phone and (now) watch. That’s a list of things you can DJ (or rather, djay) on, thanks to a multi-platform update to the eponymous(ish) app from Algoriddim. As Apple Watch (kinda) hits stores this week, you’ll be able to update Djay 2 for iOS (the Watch version isn’t a standalone app) so that it works with your new timepiece. Of course, features are stripped back, but you can do most things you need to keep the music flowing, such as browse your iTunes library, add and sync tunes to a “deck” or use Force Touch and have the software do it all for you (aka “Automix” mode). It’s a tough life for the wearable DJ. If you prefer to mix on the other devices we listed, Algoriddim has updates for you, too.

If you’re too cool to be seen DJing with a watch, maybe then perhaps djay Pro‘s new features are more your style? The latest version of the Mac app adds the ability to mix videos — whether that’s music videos themselves, or VJ-style visuals to go along with your tunes. The visuals can be fed to an external display, or even piped over Airplay — a feature with “house party” written all over it. If you prefer to leave the laptop alone, and do your thing on real decks, there’s also native support for a slew of Pioneer’s pro DJ kit. High end gear found in most clubs — including the CDJ2000/CDJ900 and XDJ1000 — will act as a controller for djay Pro out of the box, including advanced features like Slip Mode, waveform display and showing cue points. The same update also bundles in support for higher quality Spotify music (320kbs files) if that’s your preferred source of music.

The Pro update is free for existing owners, (djay Pro costs $50), and a premium Spotify account is needed for the integrated features. Djay 2 for iPhone ($3) and iPad ($10) will be free for a week — go go get it.

Google Chrome for iOS gets easier to use with one hand


Pull to refresh in Chrome for iOS

Don’t like that Chrome makes you use two hands to comfortably surf the web on your iPhone 6? Your life just got a bit easier. Google has updated Chrome for iOS so that you can pull down to not only refresh web pages, but open and close tabs. At this rate, you might only have to reach up when you want to type in a site address. There’s also a Today View launcher widget that includes voice search, suggested answers for common searches and support for password managers like 1Password and LastPass. All told, you should spend more time browsing and less time stretching your fingers — that’s a worthwhile upgrade in our books.

LA’s school board would like all of that iPad money back now, please


Look up the word bungled in a dictionary, and you’ll find the definition of the word, so if you want to see what it looks like in practice, head to L.A.. The state’s problematic program to get iPads into the hands of low-income students has backfired so spectacularly the school district is now looking for a complete refund. According to the L.A. Times, the state’s education board has been having secret meetings with lawyers and has already told Apple and Pearson that it won’t accept or pay for future deliveries of tablets and software.

The $1.3 program has attracted plenty of controversy, and even the FBI has been called in to investigate if a dodgy deal had been made. The paper has also dished the dirt on an internal report from March made by program director Bernadette Lucas. She found that only two out of the 69 schools in the program used the software created by education partner Pearson. The company draws plenty of fire, and is accused of not producing enough content and giving little thought to students whose first language wasn’t English.

Apple and Pearson may be the most notable names on the district’s shit list, but similarly nasty letters have also been sent to Lenovo and Arey Jones for similar projects. The paper’s report ends by saying that the school districts are hopeful that affordable and useful technology will make its way into education, but until that point, officials have just authorized the purchase of new mathematics textbooks.

The iPad for poor people has arrived, here is our review


All right. Well, take care yourself. I guess that’s what you’re best, presence old master? A tremor in the Force. The last time felt it was in the presence of my old master. I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to finding their secret base. A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master.

Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him. I can’t get involved! I’ve got work to do! It’s not that I like the Empire, I hate it, but there’s nothing I can do about it right now. It’s such a long way from here. I call it luck. You are a part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away!

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. Leave that to me. Send a distress signal, and inform the Senate that all on board were killed. Red Five standing by.

I find your lack of faith disturbing. A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master. Hey, Luke! May the Force be with you. Red Five standing by. Red Five standing by. Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them.


The new concept spyder

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid. I find your lack of faith disturbing. The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers. As you wish.

Thanks for looking at our theme.

I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. Oh God, my uncle. How am I ever gonna explain this? As you wish. Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone. You mean it controls your actions?

Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. Ye-ha! The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.

Just going down the street

Apple finally realized that audiobooks aren’t music


An audiobook in iOS 8.4

Have you scratched your head wondering why Apple would put audiobooks in iOS’ music player, rather than… y’know, a book app? So has Apple. Besides a redesigned music app, the early iOS 8.4 beta also moves audiobooks into iBooks, where they arguably should have been all along. You’ll also get must-have playback features like chapter selection and a sleep timer. It’s not certain when 8.4 will be ready for the public (WWDC, perhaps?), but it’s already obvious that this is much more than a simple bug fix.

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference begins June 8th


WWDC 2015

If you’re wondering what Apple will do next with its mobile devices and the Mac, you won’t have to wait too long to find out. The tech giant has announced the 2015 Worldwide Developer Conference, which starts on June 8th. It’s not providing too many clues as to what will be there, but you can apply for tickets now — and you’ll have the option to stream sessions live if you can’t make it out to San Francisco. It’s safe to say that the event will include news on software for the Apple Watch, iOS and OS X, and it won’t be shocking if Apple has something to say about a new streaming music service or a next-generation Apple TV. Whatever happens, you know we’ll be there to give you the full scoop.

Apple’s iOS 8.4 beta includes a brand-new music player


iOS 8.4's music app

Think that iOS’ music player is overdue for a remake? You’re going to get your wish. Apple has released the first iOS 8.4 beta to developers, and its centerpiece is a shiny, new Music app. The refresh includes at least a few long-sought changes, including some borrowed from iTunes: There’s a mini player that sticks around while you’re browsing, global search and an “Up Next” song queue. You’ll also see a sleeker iTunes Radio interface that helps you discover new tracks. There’s no sign of the Beats-based music service rumored to come alongside 8.4, but that’s not supposed to show up until Apple’s developer conference at the earliest — if it exists, it’s probably going to stay under wraps for a little while.

Every UK House of Commons member is getting an iPad


iPad Air 2

When the UK’s Members of Parliament get down to work following the election in May, they’ll have more than just a new government on their hands — they’ll have a tablet, too. The Parliamentary tech team is handing out cellular-equipped iPad Air 2 units to all 650 House of Commons MPs so that they have a secure way to do business wherever they are. While 209 of them already had iPads, this move makes them standard issue.

The effort could do a lot to advance technology in the House, but it’s also receiving a lot of flak. Cost is probably the big issue: while the committee decided that iPads were “competitively priced” given the goals (cellular data, security and a long lifespan), the plan will cost £1 million (roughly $1.5 million) over five years. It should theoretically save money versus printing hundreds of copies of paper documents, but the savings could be larger with lower-cost hardware. Also, Shadow Cabinet Office minister Chi Onwurah isn’t happy with the focus on iOS — Apple’s platform is already part of the House’s practices, but Onwurah would prefer a device-independent approach. Like it or not, though, Britain (and really, the world) is about to find out how well the iPad works as a common legislative tool.
