It s certainly much easier to do for someone who spends all their time in a browser, for example, than someone heavily invested in the likes of Pages and Numbers.With that in mind, it s a good idea to take stock of what you need to move before you get started in earnest.Few things will confuse a veteran Windows user more than a glance at the way macOS and its Photos app arrange pictures and videos on the local drive.The good news is iCloud for Windows can download all your pictures, assuming you re using iCloud and not just keeping all your photos and videos stored locally on your Mac.The Google Photos uploader for macOS will spot your Photos library straight away, and you can use the Google Drive desktop client for Windows to get everything on your PC.In the case of Dropbox, there s not yet integrated support for a macOS Photos library, but you can still export your files to your Dropbox folder, and sync them from there.

With the right camera set up and a bit of luck, that photo you planned can sometimes turn out way better than you expected.Turns out SpaceX isn t only pretty clever at getting rockets back to Earth in one piece.The team can snap a mean photo, too.This latest image, showing its Falcon 9 rocket moments before it landed on a floating barge to complete SpaceX s recent successful return-to-flight mission, is a real cracker, with the gorgeous natural lighting helping to create a striking and somewhat ethereal image.The team always capture images and video of its rocket landings, and don t mind posting them online even when things don t go according to plan.But this latest shot, grabbed as the rocket passed fortuitously between the sun and the camera lens, is easily its best yet.

Venture capitalists in Hong Kong are calling for stronger support from governments, corporations and banks to strengthen the start-up ecosystem and boost innovation in the city.Speaking at the StartmeupHK venture forum on Tuesday, a panel of venture capitalists pointed out that Hong Kong needs to make banking easier for small companies looking to establish themselves in Hong Kong and build a stronger support system for small companies in order to compete with start-up hubs such as Singapore.The banking system needs to be fixed for start-ups, this is a fundamental issue for a number of companies trying to set up here, said Kent Ho, partner at venture capital firm Spectrum 28.It said that guidelines would be issued to banks regarding the opening of accounts to balance regulatory requirements and serving the public.Such issues are also why industries like financial technology fintech are so popular in Hong Kong, according to Steve Monaghan, limited partner at VC firm True Global Ventures.Fintech start-ups help to disrupt the core transactions in traditional banking systems and thus have much opportunity to tap into markets like Hong Kong or in areas where there is a lack of financial inclusion, according to Monaghan.

The Jony Ive-narrated introductory video for the Apple Pencil is without question the most cringeworthy video Apple has ever produced.Seriously, it s like a parody of an Apple video produced by Apple.Watch it again right here if you don t remember it.Ive speaks with such passion, diving deep into the intricate details and the magic behind the creation of… a friggin stylus.Sure, it s a nice stylus, but at the end of the day it s still… a friggin stylus.If you own an Apple Pencil, you re obviously comfortable with buying into pretty much anything Apple s selling jk, jk, it s so awesome!!

Prosecutors in South Korea are seeking a warrant to arrest Samsung Group's heir apparent Lee Jae-yong over bribery allegations related to President Park Geun-hye's close aide Choi Soon-sil.After being grilled for over 22 hours earlier, Lee admitted – for the first time in months – that his company did give money to Choi even if it was under pressure from the country's president.Since the scandal erupted – which led to the impeachment of Park – Lee had constantly denied giving money as a favour, even though he acknowledged that Samsung did make payments to two foundations linked to Choi.However, on 12 January he made a u-turn and said that Park had sought the money when they met privately in July 2015.The arrest warrant is still pending in court, where Lee is slated to appear on 18 January.If the warrant is granted the arrest will be a big blow for the scion, who would take over the company from his father, Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee – who has been unwell for some time now.

First up is confirmation that Colossus, NSTW, and Dopinder will all be returning.The two X-Men were confirmed by Collider, while Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed Dopinder's return during a Facebook Live QThe two also confirmed to Collider that Deadpool 2 will provide some groundwork for the X-Force movie, but it's not the primary purpose of the film.The intention is to make it a Deadpool movie, rather than using it as a platform to kickstart a new branch of the X-Men film universe.Since Carrie Fisher's untimely demise, there has been speculation on whether she will be digitally recreated in Star Wars Episode IX - given the tech's use in Rogue One.A report by Newsnight seemingly confirmed that Disney and Lucasfilm were negotiating with her estate to use her likeness, which Lucasfilm has since denied:We don t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address.

It might seem odd to those who live in more temperate climates, but snow is a thing that people eat, and it s mostly safe.With the right toppings, it can also be tasty.Maple syrup candy is a traditional snowy treat.Maple syrup taffy, maple syrup snow, whatever you want to call it, it s what happens when you pour maple syrup over freshly packed, fluffy, clean snow.The Kitchn has an easy recipe to follow, too.You boil a half cup of maple syrup in a small saucepan, allowing it to reach 235 F. From there, just drizzle over some packed snow.

Hopefully, all of you learned from Mobilegeddon in 2015 and Mobilegeddon 2 in 2016 that the updates Google makes to improve the smartphone user experience for the majority of Google searchers are not the end of the world.Still, I have seen a lot of articles focused on this topic in relation to Google s new mobile-first index, which will be launching finally this year — almost two years after Google s Gary Illyes referenced it at SMX West.All of these are fair questions, and you can find the answers here on Search Engine Land or at any of these fine sites.Google s Paul Haahr and Gary Illyes have both gone on record as saying they expect minimal changes in search results as a result of the mobile-first index, so it s highly unlikely that this event will be anything close to a Mobilegeddon 3.If you have a separate mobile site or use adaptive or responsive design and you follow Google s guidelines, you ll be fine.And if you follow the second and last point on this checklist, you have the potential to be even better than before.

Tell me if you ve encountered conversations like these before: We actually don t care about conversions; we just want organic traffic growth.We re re-branding and are no longer calling ourselves insert term .We re launching a new product today.Can you provide us tagging and content?I d like to tell you these situations are rare, but if you ve worked in the SEO consulting field for any period of time, you know they aren t. As SEOs, and especially for those on the agency side, you are often the last to know what s happening.

A set of photos show the next HTC smartphone – tentatively called the HTC U Ultra – and it s an interesting take.This smartphone appears to be a hybrid between past HTC designs and the LG V10 – or LG V20.Including a second display for icons, this device seems to have taken the idea that a second display was necessary – and ran with it.This device also has a relatively large set of features that make it look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Note.Along the back is a single camera lens and an LED flash array that seems to include laser autofocus.The LED flash and the laser autofocus – if that is indeed what we re seeing here – are set immediately to the right of the camera array or left, depending on how you re looking at it , and the whole array is centered.

St. Jude Medical stated on January 9 that it has begun deploying security updates to its Merlin.net Patient Care Network system.Reports surfaced in late 2016 that the Merlin@home transmitter used to monitor specific St. Jude Medical implanted devices could be hacked and potentially used to kill the patient.The implants in question span pacemakers Assurity and Endurity and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators Ellipse and Fortify Assura .Instead, they can be accessed through the Merlin@home monitor or in-office medical diagnostic equipment.The underlying problem is that the Merlin@home device does connect to the internet.More: Hackers can use heart-rate monitors to send jolts to cardiac implants, experts say

VIDEO WOES: Ads in the middle of videos could be about to ruin FacebookFacebook could be about to get a whole lot more annoying, with a new feature set to infuriate millions of users.According to new reports, the social media giant is about to start testing "mid-roll" video advertising ahead of a potential mass rollout.Mid-roll ads, as there name suggests, are adverts that automatically run in the middle of a video users are watching.NO COMMENT: Facebook has yet to comment on the worrying claimsWhile unlike the 'pre-roll' ads used on services like YouTube, these would not inhibit users jumping straight into the action of clips uploaded to their Facebook feed.

Rabattkodsbolaget Wrapp NTL gjorde en så kallad pivot 2014 och gick från att ha drivit en tjänst med digitala presentkort till att erbjuda rabatter till kunder som registrerade sina betalkort hos bolaget.Tanken är att Wrapp ska dra nytta av större förändringar på betalmarknaden och erbjuda lojalitetsprogram i likhet med till exempel flygbolagens bonussystem.I slutet av november i fjol kunde Di Digital rapportera att Wrapp hade skrivit på avtal med ytterligare ett gäng banker.Bankerna var La nsfo rsa kringar, Danske Bank Sverige, Collector Bank, Sodexo, finska Aktia och Nordea Finland.Nu står det klart att Wrapp även tog in kapital när avtalen skrevs på.De svenska bankpartnerna Länsförsäkringar och Collector Bank investerade 20 miljoner kronor respektive 10 Mkr i bolaget, rapporterar Breakit.

The iPhone has gone through many changes in 10 years - but which rumoured re-designs and features were the silliest?Getty ImagesAfter 10 years and over a billion devices in pockets across the globe, Apple's iPhone has firmly cemented its place in tech history as a landmark product as well as redefining what we think of when someone says the word "smartphone".Today 9 January marks the 10 year anniversary for the Cupertino giant's mobile phenomenon - a full decade since the late Steve Jobs stepped on stage at Macworld 2007 and unveiled the very first iPhone in all its multi-touching, visual voicemail-ing, text threading glory.The iPhone has gone through numerous design iterations over the years, bringing with it beloved features and innovations such as the App Store, retina displays, Siri and Touch ID.As the "cult of Apple" has grown alongside the iPhone's ascent, so too has the expectation every time a new phone emerges from one Infinite Loop - and in the smartphone industry, expectation always breeds one thing: rampant, often ludicrous speculation.From the first iPhone all the way to 2016's iPhone 7, the sheer volume of bonkers, mind-bending rumour-mongering has been a sight to behold.
