Finally Apple has cleaned up the App Store

Finally; finally; Apple has removed broken and outdated apps from the App Store. I always hated when you go looking for an app, find one that sounds perfect, and then you find out it hasn’t been updated in two years. Or you find an app that sounds super promising, but it has some bad reviews. And they you realize the developer hasn’t done anything since iOS 5. Hopefully this will make much easier to find apps and reward developers that are keep their applications up to date.

AnandTech Reviews the 6TB Western Digital RedPro HDD

AnandTech has a good writeup taking a look at the 6 TeraByte version of Western Digital RedPro Drives. These are the 7200 rpm versions of their Red NAS line designed to be in racks with up to 16 drives with firmware tuned for NAS applications.

I’ve been using some of the 3TB non-Pro versions in my Drobo 5N for some time now with good results. I don’t need the extra speed and heat that the Pro models have. I also only need drives tuned to work together in a box with 5 or less bays in it.

Macalope vs. The Apple is a religion cult

Once again the Macalope skewers the “any people that support Apple are brainwashed cult members crowd.” The funny part is that those who spout this are just as loud and fervent as the so called ones they say belong to a “cult.” I’d say they are members in a religion of their own, “I hate Apple more than anything.”


ArsTechnica: Dell XPS 13 Review

Ars Techinca has a review of the brand new Dell XPS 13. I have to say it looks absolutely beautiful and looks functional to boot. Working with a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro everyday makes you appreciate the light weight and size. Maybe I can get work to buy me one of these and hand down the Yoga to one of the young new devs. 🙂
