public beta testing for ios, macos and more

Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a way for you to access an array of exciting new software features on your Apple devices months before most Apple customers? Indeed, there is a way: joining the Apple Beta Software Program. This lets you test-drive the next major versions of iOS, macOS and tvOS months before their expected arrivals to mainstream audiences this fall. However, joining the beta program carries both benefits and caveats that are worth heeding before you go ahead. MAPPING OUT THE ISSUES THANKS TO APPLE MAPS Unlike many Apple services which we now take for granted, such as iTunes, iMessage and iCloud, the Apple beta testing program didn’t originate from Steve Jobs’ tenure at the Apple helm. Instead, it was a case of fruit, an apple or otherwise, growing…

bethel park native’s home videos become youtube sensation

Paul Petroskey - also known as “Weird Paul” - had been waiting for something like YouTube for decades. Petroskey considers himself the “Original Vlogger.”The 47-year-old Bethel Park native had hours of video tapes that he recorded in the ’80s and ’90s that included homemade music videos starring his family, a review of McDonald’s breakfast items, homemade award shows and whatever else the teenager found interesting. “As soon as YouTube came about, I said, ’This would be great. We didn’t have this when I was making these back in the ’80s,’” Petroskey says. “I wanted to put it on YouTube because I knew it would be something interesting for people, because not everyone was alive then and the people that were, not all of them had video cameras.” However, he had no idea how…

app store: turning ten and still getting better

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT It may seem hard to believe, but the App Store will turn ten this month. Whether you want to hail a cab, order a meal, split a bill, find a new partner or buy a house, there’s an app on the App Store for practically all of our needs, with new innovative technologies entering the market every day. Before the Store was released with the iPhone 3G, Steve Jobs was dead set against the idea, arguing third-party apps could damagethe reputation and performance of Apple’s hardware. However, when the late Apple founder took to the stage back in March 2008, he said that he knew developers wanted their software “in front of every iPhone user” and revealed “we’re going to solve that problem for every developer, big…

jessup man’s drone photography business flying high

From Lee Deangelis’ perspective, “once you get 100 feet up, everything looks better.” A full-time IT professional at the University of Scranton and self-described amateur filmmaker, Deangelis bought his first drone four years ago as the burgeoning technology began to take off among hobbyists. He hoped to experiment with new aerial perspectives and got the chance when Scranton Cooperage caught fire in June 2014, sending plumes of black smoke into the air above his Jessup home. “It was right outside my door, so I just happened to send the drone up and got some pictures,” Deangelis said. “And that’s when I knew that’s what I wanted to do.” In the years since, Deangelis has gone from drone enthusiast to chief executive officer of his own drone-photography company, Access Aerial, an LLC he…

tesla announces deal for shanghai factory

Electric car producer Tesla will build its first factory outside the United States in Shanghai under an agreement signed this week, becoming the first wholly foreign-owned automaker in China. Tesla Inc.’s announcement comes amid mounting U.S.-Chinese tension over technology and follows Beijing’s April promise to end restrictions that required foreign automakers to work through local partners. Tesla said construction would begin in the near future, once official permits are obtained. It said production would begin two to three years after that and eventually increase to 500,000 vehicles annually. No financial details were announced. A city government statement said the factory would be the biggest foreign investment to date in Shanghai, a base for joint ventures between General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG and a state-owned automaker. The signing ceremony was attended by Tesla chairman…

uber poised to make investment in scooter-rental business

Uber is getting into the scooter-rental business. The ride-hailing company said that it is investing in Lime, a startup based in San Mateo, California. “Our investment and partnership in Lime is another step towards our vision of becoming a one-stop shop for all your transportation needs,” Rachel Holt, an Uber vice president, said in a statement. Uber will add Lime motorized scooters to the Uber mobile app, giving consumers another option for getting around cities, especially to and from public transit systems, Holt said. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Lime co-founders Toby Sun and Brad Bao wrote in a blog that Uber’s “sizable investment” is part of a $335 million fund-raising round led by GV, the venture-capital arm of Google parent Alphabet Inc. They said Alphabet is among several new investors. The…
