Established tech companies like Facebook may be losing their cool factor for today’s youngsters, but apparently the same isn’t true for Apple.

According to a new Piper Jaffray survey, young people are more loyal to Apple than ever — with the number of American teens using iPhones rising from 48% last year, to 61% in 2014.

These current figures double the percentage from two years back. Furthermore, 61% expect iPhones to be their next smartphones.

When you’re using OS X, you can search the web for any term you can right click on. You simply do so and then choose “Search Google for [highlighted word].”

In iOS, there doesn’t appear to be any way to do the same thing.

There is, however, a work around.

Hell Freezes Over: A Cool Fanny Pack Exists, And It Holds An iPad Mini

Hell Freezes Over: A Cool Fanny Pack Exists, And It Holds An iPad Mini

This is the Gallery Waist Pack. It’s the answer to the question, “What if we made a fanny pack for the iPad?”

That’s not quite as simple as it would seem. After all, the fanny pack is the preferred bag of the middle-aged and style-free. It’s the bag for somebody who values practicality over everything else.

And while the iPad is not completely the opposite of this, it is at least opposed to the beige pleated-pants crowd.

Mixing the two is like crossing the streams.

Oenophile App Drync Now On iPads, Adds Its Own Wine-Loving Social Media Platform [Daily Freebie]

drync-ipad

Vodka is great for fruity drinks and drunken stupors; and beer is what you nurse, alone at the edge of the bar, after you’ve been dumped.

Wine, on the other hand, is the ultimate social lubricant. So it makes sense that Drync, a sophisticated app for oenophiles (the sophisticated method to describe wine-lovers), has just launched its own social-heavy website to go along with its new iPad app.

Steve Ballmer’s Last Act Was To Unleash Office For iPad Unto The World

office_15_on_surface_by_brebenel_silviu-d55xb8o

Steve Ballmer. A total doofus, right? The man who said the iPhone was destined to be a failure, who thought the iPad was a dud, who stood in the way of Office being released for the iPad long after it was clear that Windows 8 was a total bust.

Okay, sure, Microsoft’s sweatiest ex-CEO was a bit of an idiot. But to be fair to the man, he did make his amends before he was forced out by incumbent CEO Satya Nadella. In fact, Ballmer’s last oleaginous act as CEO appears to have been greenlighting the release of Office for iPad.

Lightroom For The iPad Is Straight Up Amazing

Lightroom for the iPad is here. It’s called Lightroom Mobile, and it runs smoothly on anything down to an iPad 2 (or first-gen mini). You can use the app to edit and organize any photos in your Lightroom collections, and it syncs automatically (and near instantly) with Lightroom on your desktop (you’ll need to upgrade to v5.4).

And the price? It’s free, but only if you already subscribe to Adobe’s $10-per-month Photoshop Photography Program, which also gets you the desktop versions of Photoshop and Lightroom. There’s also a 30-day free trial to check it out.
