Luis Perez has a detailed breakdown on the accessibility features coming with iOS 7. Good stuff Apple.
We’ve an underused Casio LK-93TV at home and the announcement of GarageBand ’09 (as part of iLife ’09) got me pretty interested as there seems to be music tutorial features in the package. Connecting the Casio keyboard to GarageBand ’08 didn’t seem to work however, which then prompted me to do a search and I found out Casio don’t make Mac drivers for their keyboards (supposedly).
I then found a link to a MIDI driver here which enabled GarageBand ’08 to recognised the USB-connected Casio and now everything’s working fine. Thanks a lot to ferland francois for taking the trouble of coding a solution!
Very funny post on The Onion on the new Macbook Wheel. I want one!
Mike Chambers has announced that Growl is soon to be Adobe AIR-friendly. Growl is one of those add-ons you need to install when you get a Mac, so this is a very good thing to happen for Mac AIR users.
About bloody time; Apple remove the NDA from their developer programme.
“We have decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for released iPhone software.
We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect, so that others don’t steal our work. It has happened before. While we have filed for hundreds of patents on iPhone technology, the NDA added yet another level of protection. We put it in place as one more way to help protect the iPhone from being ripped off by others.
However, the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone’s success, so we are dropping it for released software. Developers will receive a new agreement without an NDA covering released software within a week or so. Please note that unreleased software and features will remain under NDA until they are released.
Thanks to everyone who provided us constructive feedback on this matter.”
The first step in competing with the much more developer-friendly Google Android platform?
