CM Batch JPEG Date Changer 2.0.4 - Correct image creation and modification date and time.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 6 hours 8 min ago


CM Batch JPEG Date Changer can cover you if you replace your camera batteries and forget to change the camera clock, or set the wrong date or time at the change of the year. There are applications out there which let you batch change all the file dates to a single date time which would not make much sense. Moreover, those only change the creation and modification date but the digitized date and time in the EXIF header remains unchanged. The EXIF date is important when uploading to the web, especially one of the many cloud-based photo storage services. This application lets you change the date and time different ways:

  • You can set all dates and times to be the same (if you want) or just change the date and leave the time as they are.
  • You can also use the Date Maths feature which lets you add or subtract days, months, years, hours, and/or minutes from the current photo dates.
  • You can sync all the dates to either the creation, modification, or EXIF date.
  • You can also change each photo date and time individually; the choice is really yours to make depending on the situation.

CM Batch JPEG Date Changer requires a two-step process which first lets you review the changes to the dates before applying them so as not to make yet another mistake which could ruin the day. Once you are happy with the changes, click the "Change Now" button and let the application do its magic. The images will not be modified in any way; it is only the file-creation and modification dates and times which will be changed: the date and time within the EXIF meta header.

[iOS 11 Change] Caches Directory no longer counts towards total app size

iOS Programming - 6 hours 29 min ago

When you view the size of each app in iPhone Storage (Settings -> General -> iPhone Storage) you can only see the App bundle size (.app folder) and the size of the Documents folder. Caches Folder (<Application_Home>/Library/Caches) size is no longer taken into account.

So, for e.g., if you have a game app that has 100MB size and a 1GB DLC that is downloaded at launch, you'll see that the game size is 100MB and the Documents & Data section is empty, since the DLC is redownloadable, so it must be placed in the Caches Directory. This is not how it used to be until iOS 11.

I assume this is because the OS can always clear the Cache folder for some applications that are not frequently used, if the user needs more disk space. But still, atm iOS 11 users cannot know now much an app actual size is.

Was this change documented somewhere ? I don't see any mention of this in the release notes. We used to use this feature to test how much data our apps store in the caches folder. Now i'll write app a simple function to display this size inside the app, but still, seems like an important undocumented change.

Cook says 'people weren't paying attention' but vows to let users turn off iPhone throttling

MacCentral - 6 hours 34 min ago

In an interview with ABC News to tout Apple’s new jobs strategy, second U.S. campus, and repatriation of some $250 billion in overseas cash, Tim Cook also spoke for the first time about the iPhone battery issue, offering an apology, a little blame, and an upcoming fix.

Apple has already come clean on its practice of slowing down older iPhones to prevent against unnecessary shutdowns, but Cook put a slightly different spin on things, saying “a lot of people weren’t paying attention” when Apple originally released the iOS 10.2.1 update that started throttling chip speeds. At the time, this is what Apple had to say in a statement provided to TechCrunch:

File Juicer 4.66 - $18.00

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 6 hours 40 min ago


File Juicer is a drag-and-drop can opener and data archaeologist. Its specialty is to find and extract images, video, audio, or text from files which are hard to open in other ways. In computer forensics this is called carving.

It finds and extracts: JPEG, JP2, PNG, GIF, PDF, BMP, WMF, EMF, PICT, TIFF, Flash, ZIP, HTML, WAV, AVI, MOV, MP4, MPG, MP3, AIFF, AU, WMV, or text from files which contain data in those formats.

Lossless extraction... File Juicer does't convert the images/sounds/videos it finds, but saves them unchanged in their original format if possible. (See the manual for details.) This is useful:

  • if you want to extract the images/sounds/videos from a PDF or Word document;
  • if you have old files you can no longer open with current applications;
  • if you receive emails with attachments you can not open;
  • if you have corrupt files or databases;
  • if you have damaged or accidentally erased flash cards for your digital camera;
  • if you receive "self extracting" EXE files designed for Windows;
  • or if this is just faster than copying and pasting from the file.


Version 4.66:
  • Fixed excessive use of memory when juicing mailbox files, which made it very slow


  • OS X 10.9 or later

OnTheAir Node 3.6 - Next generation playout and ingest engine for the Mac.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 7 hours 2 min ago


OnTheAir Node is Softron's next generation playout and ingest engine for the Mac. It has been designed to be an inexpensive, reliable and customizable video server that has an open client-server architecture. OnTheAir Node can be controlled remotely over the network. One client computer in a control room can control multiple OnTheAir Node playout servers located in the machine room.

With its unequaled openness, OnTheAir Node brings a new era to the world of Mac based playout servers. OnTheAir Node allows third party applications such as Traffic and Media Asset Management solutions to easily take control of a reliable playout server with real-time media cataloging and validation.

OnTheAir Node will launch automatically at start up and will resume operation, even after a power loss. it will run on any Intel based Mac equipped with a video card (AJA ,Blackmagic Design or Matrox) installed in the MacPro, Xserve or MacBook Pro.

OnTheAir Node is coming with the same playout engine as Softron's flagship product OnTheAir Video, so with the same reliability OnTheAir Video has proven over the years. OnTheAir Node will not only output video to any of the available video output on the Mac, and allow it to be controlled remotely, but it will also catalog the available assets in one or more scan folder and it will inform any of the client application (OnTheAir Live or OnTheAir Manager) when a new asset arrives or is deleted. It will also check for validity and compatibility. Information on the clips is provided as XML, making it easy for any other third party application to retrieve the clip's characteristics. (Ex: video codec, audio sample rate, creation date, last modification date, finder label etc.)

OnTheAir Node's open architecture will allow any third party application as Traffic or Media Asset Management software to control the playout and see the list of available media. OnTheAir Node uses Telnet for its communications meaning that the protocol is a proven and open standard that doesn't need any special requirements.



Version 3.6:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.10 or later.
