    On this day in 1996 American conglomerate Cox Enterprises announced that it had become an equity owner in Digital Domain, a leading Hollywood special effects company. The move was supposedly done to heighten the use of special effects in media. The New York Times reported the deal as, “another step in the rapid convergence of various computer, software, entertainment and media companies.”

    Ownership of Digital Domain was then split into three groups, one of which included renowned movie director James Cameron, who later used Digital Domain in his blockbuster hit Titanic.

    On this day in 1946 John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert unveiled the much awaited ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) at the University of Pennsylvania. The ENIAC was among the earliest electronic general-purpose computers ever made. Designed by Mauchly and Eckert, it used some 18,000 vacuum tubes, occupied more than 1,500 square feet of space and weighed 30 tons. It was able to calculate 5,000 operations per second, making it one thousand times faster than electro-mechanical machines of the time. Its impressive computational power combined with its general-purpose programmability excited scientists and industrialists alike.

    It’s become an established fact that open source is the way to go when you want reliable, custom software solutions. But what’s also become abundantly clear is the fact that you can’t pick just any open source project. While the open source movement in itself is a positive one, not all open source projects produce positive effects for clients and users. Security risks and other such issues in some projects have proven to have damaging effects, and have also proven the necessity for proper vetting of open source projects.

    Knowing a good open source project from a bad one is a crucial skill, as choosing wrong can cost you big time. And if you are currently developing or maintaining a project, it’s just as important that you are fully aware of which kind your project is between the two, and what you can do to improve it.

    Four Defining Factors

    Evaluating the integrity and reliability of an open source project usually boils down to four major factors. By zooming in on these four factors you should have a pretty accurate idea of just how good or bad of a choice an open source project may be.

    1. Developers and Maintainers
      The first thing you have to look at are the people or company currently developing and maintaining the project. Do they have a good track record of keeping open source projects going? Are they currently using the software for their own purposes? These are often telling signs that a project will be well-maintained and will most likely be developed further.
    2. Popularity
      Generally the more popular or in-demand a project is the more likely it is to be maintained, if not by the original development team then by others who need it enough to take over the project. Now some equate popularity with a greater chance of security risks, but take note that popularity isn’t the only factor being considered here. When you consider the other defining factors along with the project’s popularity, you should have a fairly secure project in your hands. Also, a certain level of popularity means that security issues are, more often than not detected and patched quickly. Compared to a stagnant system hiding who knows what kind of security skeletons, you’d really be better off with a popular open source project.
    3. Update Schedule
      Consistent or frequent updates is another good sign, as this indicates that the project has regular contributors and that the team behind it is active and responsive to the needs of the community. If it stops attracting contributors and has a lot of open issues, then it’s probably not going to be a good project to invest in.
    4. Code
      The last but certainly not the least of the factors you have to look into when vetting open source projects is the code. Clean and well-thought out code is a good indication that there is a good team of professionals behind the project. And even if the original developers decide to let the project go, it would be likely that another company will take it and maintain it further because of of how solid its code already is.

    In a world where open source projects have become quite ubiquitous, vetting is essential. It keeps you from incorporating dangerous security issues into your codebase and is also a good incentive for developers and maintainers to continue improving their projects.

    On this day in 1956 American computer scientist Douglas “Doug” Ross presented a paper on Gestalt programming at the Western Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco. Ross is best known to have originated the term “CAD” for computer-aided design, and is considered by most to be the father of Automatically Programmed Tools or APT, the language that drives numerically-controlled manufacturing.

    For our February “Staff Pick” Project of the Month, we selected Xtreme Download Manager, a powerful download accelerator and video downloader. Recently we caught up with creator and developer Subhra Das Gupta, who shared some thoughts about the project’s history, purpose, and direction.

    SourceForge (SF): Tell me about the Xtreme Download Manager project please.
    Subhra Das Gupta (SDG): XDM is an open source download accelerator and video downloader / converter for Windows, Linux and Mac OS. It was designed to provide all the functionality of a commercial / paid application.

    SF: What made you start this?
    SDG: When I started this project, no free download accelerators were providing all the functionality (available in paid applications), you needed to buy a commercial application. And most of them were available for Windows only. I myself used some of the paid/trial ware, and it seemed a good idea to write a free program which would offer those features on Linux as well.

    SF: Has the original vision been achieved?
    SDG: Yes I think.

    SF: Who can benefit the most from your project?
    SDG: Anyone who is looking for a reliable Download Accelerator or Video downloader.

    SF: What core need does Xtreme Download Manager fulfill?
    SDG: Downloading files from the internet with the fastest possible speed; saving videos from the internet and converting them to different formats for playing on mobile phone or TV.

    SF: What’s the best way to get the most out of using XDM?
    SDG: Installing XDM and browsing the internet from your favorite browser. XDM will automatically handle downloads.

    SF: What has your project team done to help build and nurture your community?
    SDG: Supporting users and answering their problems/questions on the project’s forum.

    SF: Have you found that more frequent releases helps build up your community of users?
    SDG: Yes. Frequent releases are needed to provide bug fixes and add new features suggested by users.

    SF: What was the first big thing that happened for your project?
    SDG: Releasing version 5 with a completely new UI.

    SF: What helped make that happen?
    SDG: Lots of users suggested to improve the UI.

    SF: How has SourceForge and its tools helped your project reach that success?
    SDG: SF and its tools helped greatly. The project is solely hosted on SF, and the SF forums are used to assist users.

    SF: What is the next big thing for Xtreme Download Manager?
    SDG: Releasing version 8.

    SF: How long do you think that will take?
    SDG: 3 months at least.

    SF: Do you have the resources you need to make that happen?
    SDG: Yes.

    SF: If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently for Xtreme Download Manager?
    SDG: Create a more user-friendly UI.

    SF: Is there anything else we should know?
    SDG: XDM is being constantly under-developed and updated. So new feature suggestions and submitting bug requests are greatly appreciated. Submitting a translation for a new language will also help XDM to serve more users.

    On this day in 1984 the Apple Macintosh was released. Manufactured at an Apple factory in Fremont, California, the Macintosh was introduced to the public via an 18-page brochure included in various magazines in December 1983; followed by the now iconic Super Bowl ad directed by Ridley Scott and shown on the third quarter of Super Bowl XVII on January 22, 1984.

    The Macintosh used a Motorola 68000 microprocessor and had 128k of RAM, and was sold at around US$2,500 each. It came bundled with two applications: MacWrite and MacPaint. Its GUI was revolutionary at the time and led to its rapid adoption in various fields, selling over 70,000 units just one hundred days after its release.

For further information on FedBerry releases please visit fedberry.org or https://github.com/fedberry/fedberry.

    One of the primary rules of Apple punditry is that if Apple has a problem, then that problem must be existential.

    Writing for Computerworld, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols says “Apple is not as good as its bottom line.” (Tip o’ the antlers to @designheretic.)

    How can I say Apple is in trouble when it’s selling 10 iPhones per second?

    And not burst into flames? Uh, say it while lounging in a bathtub full of industrial strength firefighting foam? That might do it.

    Looking for an iPhone X case? Here’s what’s available at the online Apple store Sat, 24 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0800 Roman Loyola Roman Loyola

    The iPhone X is a marvelous device—a device with a glass shell. And as strong as that glass is, you probably want to do what you can to protect it, especially since you paid a lot of money for it.

    As of this writing, the selection in the online Apple store is pretty limited. Here’s what you’ll find. We’ll update this list as new products appear.

    Apple iPhone X Silicone Case

    What’s nice about this case is that it’s a thin covering that adds some grip to the slick iPhone X. It costs $39 and is available in black, blue cobalt, dark olive, midnight blue, pink sand, (Product) Red, rose red, ultra violet, and white.

    Apple AirPower wireless charging pad: Rumors of a March ship date Fri, 23 Feb 2018 06:38:00 -0800 Roman Loyola Roman Loyola

    Apple’s new AirPower is a wireless charging pad to help clean up the mess of charging cables for your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. Apple unveiled AirPower at its iPhone X Event, but the company didn’t provide much detail. We hope to fill the void here. We’ll update this article as we get more details, so stay tuned.

    Editor's note: Updated on February 23, 2018, with a report that AirPower may be available for purchase by the end of March.

    What is AirPower?

    AirPower is a wireless charging pad. There are several wireless charging pads on the market, but before the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, you had to use a special case with your iPhone in order to use a wireless charging pad.

    Months after the release of macOS 10.13 High Sierra, folks are still having problems with limitations of the new Apple File System (APFS) format required for SSDs that run High Sierra, and which you can optionally upgrade other drives to use. That includes your columnist, who biffed a Time Machine question that’s now updated for accuracy.

    Time Machine can work with APFS volumes, but the shape looks like this:

    HomePod: Apple's smart speaker has plenty of room to grow Fri, 23 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0800 Dan Moren Dan Moren

    With the addition of the HomePod to my arsenal of smart speakers, we’ve reached a dangerous tipping point in my household: there are roughly double the number of smart speakers as people. 

    The past couple weeks of living with the HomePod has given me a bit of time not only to see what the device has to offer right now, but has also helped me sketch out some ideas about where the future might be able to take it.

    5 reasons why iPad Pro won’t make you ask ‘What’s a computer?’ Fri, 23 Feb 2018 03:00:00 -0800 Leif Johnson Leif Johnson

    “What’s a computer,” a young girl asks in Apple’s latest change-the-world TV spot for the iPad. Toss aside your cynicism, and it’s easy to buy into Apple’s vision as she types stories, scribbles handwritten drafts, and produces precocious paintings on her eminently portable iPad Pro. A computer? The girl might as well be asking about Betamax or beepers.

    It’s been over a year since they were released, but AirPods are still the runaway hit in Apple’s lineup, rarely available for immediate shipping and selling out as soon as they’re available at most stores. And now, a new report says Apple is planning on making them even more desirable.

    According to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, Apple is eyeing a new version of AirPods for release this year which would bring a new chip and support for the hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ command. Currently, you need to physically tap one of the AirPods to summon Apple’s AI assistant.

    Why you can't use the Image Capture Mac app to delete photos on your iOS devices Thu, 22 Feb 2018 05:00:00 -0800 Glenn Fleishman Glenn Fleishman

    I often recommend the not-quite-hidden app Image Capture to people having trouble getting images transferred or sync from iOS devices, especially if they’re using iTunes sync. It’s a way to peer into photo storage on an iOS device, as well as camera cards and other places. (It handles scanners, too, but some readers have found in High Sierra that they had to use Preview with their scanner.)

    However, Macworld reader Larry wrote in asking about an article from July 2017 in which we noted that Image Capture also let you delete images directly from an iOS device. (Actually, it was another publication that wrote that article, but we’re happy to answer the question.)

    It’s mid-February and, as you may have noticed, many of your favorite shows are on a brief hiatus so there’s nothing on but reruns. Apparently even in Apple rumors.


    Writing for The Motley Fool, Evan Niu provides “More Evidence That iPhone X Demand Is Underwhelming.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Philip.)

    Like we needed any more after the thing. And the other thing.

    …Apple’s own fiscal first-quarter earnings release contained clues suggesting as much, the most notable being the fact that Apple reached supply-demand balance for iPhone X in December—just over a month after the $999 flagship phone was released.

    All forms of Siri are not created equal. While Apple’s AI assistant is available on no less than six different devices—iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Macs, and now, HomePod—its capabilities aren’t the same on each. Rather than give Siri the same brain everywhere, Apple has tailored Siri’s smarts to the device you’re using, so the answers you get will be different depending on what device you’re using—and in some cases there are surprising and frustrating limitations. I tested Siri across the Apple's whole family of devices with scads of queries. Here are some topline takeaways on what I found:

    Best true wireless earbuds: Free yourself from the tyranny of cords Wed, 21 Feb 2018 12:36:00 -0800 Séamus Bellamy Séamus Bellamy

    Earbud makers have been busy doing away with wires—a good thing whether or not your phone still has a headset jack. You no longer have to deal with cords if you don't want to. True wireless earbuds connect to one another and your audio source via Bluetooth.

    No wires mean no inline microphones or controls, but truly wireless earbuds sound just as good as traditional Bluetooth counterparts (for better or worse). They also boast all of the features we've come to expect from earbuds designed to work with your smartphone, tablet, or PC.

    Since Apple’s AirPods became a runaway hit, an endless stream of companies have rolled out their own true wireless earbuds and earphones. As you might expect, not all of them are worth your time or money—so we've got your back with buying suggestions to meet a wide variety of needs.

    Walmart's selling a white Philips Hue lightbulb for $10 today Wed, 21 Feb 2018 12:25:00 -0800 Ian Paul Ian Paul

    Today's a good day to stock up on light bulbs for your smart home. Walmart is selling a single Philips Hue White A19 bulb for $10—or for 33 percent off the usual price. This deal is particularly nice since you can buy the exact amount of bulbs you want. Previously, the best price we've seen is a two-pack for $30.

    The Philips Hue White A19 is a plain white LED bulb (read our review here). It doesn't have colors and doesn't come with a Philips Bridge. The Bridge is the go-between for the ZigBee-based Hue bulbs and a home network.

    Before iTunes 12.7, you could use iTunes for iOS syncing and backups, and iTunes could copy over downloaded iOS apps. Apple changed all that a few months ago with the release of iTunes 12.7. I suggested that a newly available feature in macOS 10.13 High Sierra could help cushion the blow of repeated downloads.

    If you needed to restore an iOS device, those apps would be copied locally, instead of downloaded from the internet. And with multiple iOS devices in a household all using iTunes, it seemed like iTunes 12.7 could require a lot more app downloading, which can affect people with limited bandwidth or charges for bandwidth overages.

    Merge Cube review: A clever but short-lived augmented reality toy Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0800 Andrew Hayward Andrew Hayward

    Augmented reality got a nice jump-start from Apple’s ARKit in iOS 11, which increased the visual quality and responsiveness of digital objects placed into your real-world view. But how about a physical object—one that you can hold, feel, and rotate—that can be transformed into almost anything via your iPhone’s camera? That’s what the Merge Cube has to offer.

    As high-tech as that might sound, the actual Merge Cube itself looks and feels like a squeezable stress reliever, making it both durable and kid-safe. It’s also impressively cheap—retailers like Walmart and Amazon have it for less than the $15 MSRP as of this writing. The Merge Cube is covered on all sides with shiny silver symbols, which help your phone track its position as you hold it in view of the back camera.

    We really admired the 2016 MacBook Pro when it first came out, and the then-new Touch Bar led us to say that it has the “best bits of iOS in a really great Mac.”

    It’s such a good machine that it’s still a smart buy just a couple of years later. If you’ve been looking to upgrade but aren’t quite ready to face the prices for a 2017 model (which is essentially the same notebook but with some under-the-hood improvements), you can now pick up one of the most powerful versions of the 2016 rig from B&H for an impressive $700 off Apple’s price.

    Apple releases iOS 11.2.6, macOS 10.13.3 update, and more to fix Telugu 'text bomb' bug Tue, 20 Feb 2018 10:33:00 -0800 Leif Johnson Leif Johnson

    Internet trolls had a great time causing Apple products to freeze last week thanks to a bug involving a specific character from India’s Telugu language. Fortunately, the party’s over now, as Apple released a barrage of updates that patch the issue on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and Apple TV boxes.

    Take our word for it: update your devices now. You’re most likely to encounter the bug on your iPhone and iPad, so be sure to get the iOS 11.2.6 patch on your device straight away.

    Apple’s had to deal with some high-profile bugs in the last few months, but this one, while obscure, was particularly nasty. All someone had to do was send a message with the specific character to an app like Messages, Facebook Messenger, or WhatsApp, and the app would freeze while Apple’s software struggled to interpret the character.
