This Week's SponsorUnite 4 - Turn websites into apps on your Mac.
Apple is rumored to be readying an update for the Apple Watch and Apple TV featuring TV Kit (http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/18/apple-readies-first-significant-apple-watch-updates-tvkit-sdk-for-apple-tv/).
We complain about arranging Apple Watch apps which is the firstest of world problems (http://www.imore.com/how-rearrange-apps-your-apple-watch).
A 15-inch MacBook Pro with Force Touch may not be long off, as well as a 27-inch iMac update (http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/18/new-15-inch-macbook-pro-imac-27/).
The first trailer for “Steve Jobs” with Michael Fassbender is out so we can argue about another biopic, yay (http://variety.com/2015/film/news/steve-jobs-trailer-michael-fassbender-aaron-sorkin-1201499261/).
Clearly, it’s no “iSteve” (http://www.macworld.com/article/2035456/review-funny-or-dies-isteve-will-tickle-apple-fans.html). But it’ll be better than “jOBS” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq5q9aoZi4s).
Apple has bought GPS and navigation firm, Coherent (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/05/17/apple-coherent-navigation-acquisition/).
We foget how turn-by-turn works on the Watch, but it’s 12 quick taps for right, three pairs of two for left (http://www.macworld.com/article/2915572/apple-watch-how-to-use-maps.html).
Our thanks this week go to Animoto (http://animoto.com/therebound), the easiest way to create, edit and share your videos. True story: Moltz used Animoto to make a video of his wife and son doing karate and was amazed at how easy it was. He uploaded his video and pictures (Animoto can also pull them from your Facebook, Instagram and Flickr accounts if you want) to Animoto, picked a theme… and that was it. Animoto did the rest and it turned out really well. You can try Animoto for free for 14 days and remember to use the code “REBOUND” to get 15% off a Pro account when you sign up at http://animoto.com/therebound.
Our thanks also to Aspiration (http://aspiration.com/rebound), a different kind of financial firm. Their idea is pretty simple – take everything you don’t like about investing, and do the opposite. Traditional Wall Street firms work for mostly millionaires. At Aspiration, their investments investment strategies are built for the middle class. Signing up takes as little as $500 and five minutes of your time. You choose the fee you pay them – even if that is zero. They don’t make a cent other than what you decide they deserve. And Aspiration is the most charitable financial firm in America. Check them out and sign up at Aspiration.com/rebound.
