One of the real shortcomings of the Reminders app on iOS is the fact that you can’t share your to-do lists directly from your iPhone or iPad. If you want to collaborate with someone else on a Reminders list, you have to use the iCloud Web page or the app on your Mac. Thankfully, though, there are a few excellent programs out there that allow you to share your to-do list with other people, and they’re free to download on the App Store.
My guess is that labels who are allowing their music to be streamed will take advantage of this Apple Music Start Date to ensure sales in the first months after an album is released. But this highlights the fact that Apple Music users may not be able to stream new releases; it will depend on each label, and each album.
Apple's Safari is a great web browser, but there are many reasons why you may want to use another one on your iPhone or iPad (or even on your Mac). You may use Google services a lot, and find that Chrome helps you be more efficient; or you might want to use another browser because it's faster, or because it offers more privacy.
We'll surely delve into these major new components in the weeks and months to come. For now, however, let's take a look at some of the smaller changes that iOS 9 brings to the APIs we already know and love.
Too many companies run interviews the way they always have, with resumes, white boards and gut calls. We described our initial ideas about how to do better than this in our manifesto. Well, a little over a month has now passed. In the last 30 days, we've done 300 interviews. We've started to put our ideas into practice, to see what works and what doesn't, and to iterate on our process. In this post, I'm going to talk about what we've learned from the first 300 interviews.

When did the meaning of 'workshop' change from a place where things are made and crafted, to where Post-it notes full of shite multiply.— Joel Avery (@Joel_Avery_UK) June 18, 2015

A new iOS 9 feature added in beta 1 was only discovered when users attempted to update to beta 2 earlier today. This new feature will allow the operating system to intelligently delete applications if you don’t have enough free space to perform a software update. Once the update is complete, the apps will automatically be reinstalled and your data will remain intact.
Apple Music, the hardware giant's soon-to-launch streaming service, has landed an eleventh-hour coup, striking deals with the independents’ digital rights organization Merlin and with Martin Mills’ indie powerhouse Beggars Group, sources tell Billboard.
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group, which oversees the development of the wireless communication standard, announced Tuesday that Apple has become a “promoter member” of the group, giving the company new power to guide Bluetooth’s development. Promoter members are given a continual seat on the group’s board of directors, and are also the only membership class that can vote on its corporate matters.
Lisa Jackson, former head of the Environmental Protection Agency and Apple's top executive on environmental issues, will become the company's lead on all policy initiatives, including the environment, education and accessibility. Her new title will be the vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives.
In a memo to employees, Apple chief executive Tim Cook said that Jackson's new role is in line with the company's dedication to "leaving the world better than we found it."
IBM and Box plan to work together on three key initiatives: transformation of enterprise work, international reach and security and new content rich apps and solutions. This latter area of focus will impact IBM's MobileFirst for iOS apps. Moving forward, the MobileFirst initiative is expected to lean on Box's cloud APIs for content management and storage.
An experimental algorithm out of Facebook's artificial intelligence lab can recognise people in photographs even when it can't see their faces. Instead it looks for other unique characteristics like your hairdo, clothing, body shape and pose.
This is going to totally impact the Hollywood stunt-double industry.
I don't have any luck in using any of Apple's Bluetooth mouse. Honestly, I wish there is a wired-version of the Magic Mouse.
A number of studies suggest that much pleasure can be derived from actively anticipating a vacation: looking at photos of the places you plan to visit, reading about the culture, making dinner reservations, or simply imagining yourself enjoying your time there.
Maintaining pleasure after a great vacation is more challenging.
