"Was all this legal? Absolutely not!"

Popcorn Time is a new app to stream movies over BitTorrent – for free

Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 1.14.41 PMChances are, the biggest deterrent against movie piracy in the mainstream was the general skill  required to actually find a working torrent of quality, find a working piece of BitTorrent software, and actually completing the download. If that sounds familiar to you would-be-movie-pirates at heart, take notes: a new application, Popcorn Time, has just surfaced for all three of the major desktop platforms – Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux – that makes streaming pirated movies over BitTorrent as easy as clicking a single play button.

Torrent sources are found and curated by the developers behind Popcorn Time, assuring that movies streamed are not only of extremely high video and audio quality, but also stream fast and without any sort of ridiculous load times typically associated with movie piracy. As you may expect, Popcorn Time is currently streaming some extremely well known and award winning movies, some of which have yet to even be released on Blu-Ray, DVD, or other official sources – including Gravity, The Hunger Games, American Hustle, and much more.

Interested? The developers would like to kindly remind you that movie piracy is “probably” (ie.,almost certainly) illegal wherever it is in your country, so as per usual use this at your own risk and discretion. Download links are at the source below.

iOS 7 inspired design, 64-bit enhanced

Apple announces completely rewritten iWork applications for Mac and iOS

On top of announcing new versions of Apple’s iLife suite for both OS X and iOS today, Apple has also announced an entirely rewritten suite of iWork applications for both OS X and iOS. Both come with new designs and are enhanced for 64-bit systems, such as the newest Mac lineup as well as the iPhone 5s.

On the iOS side of things, iWork gains a new iOS 7 inspired user interface. Apple has also made these applications more powerful and convenient to use, bringing a (much requested) toolbar to iWork while using it in portrait mode – previously, the toolbar was only available while using iWork in landscape mode. Keynote gets new, dynamic transitions and effects while Numbers gets new dynamic number crunching and dynamic graphs.

Both iWork for iOS and iWork for Mac are available starting today, entirely free of charge with the purchase of any new Mac or iOS device. Presumably, these updates will also be free of charge for existing owners of iWork.

iWork for iCloud has also been updated to include some of these new features and designs. On top of that, iWork for iCloud also gains real-time collaboration functionality akin to what Google has on their Google Docs on Drive software. Despite all of these improvements, the software is still considered to be in beta.

New iPhoto, iMovie, Garageband

Apple updates iLife for both iOS and OS X

Apple has today updated their entire iLife suite for both iOS and OS X, bringing a whole new iOS 7 inspired design that natively fits in with iOS 7’s native user interface. iLife for iOS appears to be most significantly updated, bringing in features that were previously exclusive to the Mac versions of the applications in prior versions.

iMovie and Garageband for OS X have also been given a radical redesign once again, departing from the radical designs that each have retained over the past couple of years. iMovie has given prominence to slow motion video this time around, allowing iPhone 5s owners to better take advantage of their 120fps HD video cameras. Garageband meanwhile gets a new automated feature known as “Drummer”, which appears to dynamically create new rhythms that fits with tracks.

iLife is free with the purchase of any new Mac or iOS device, and each version of these applications are available starting today.
