Power's 2014 smartphone satisfaction survey; Apple seeing a "sales boom in communist Vietnam"; rumor suggests we'll see a new MacBook Air next week, both 11 and 13-inch sizes; and the iPhone phablet said to be delayed because it is too thin for current battery technology; Apple applies for tech that allows interaction with 3D objects in mid-air, embedded authentication systems, environmental sensors, among others down in our Hardware/Software section; Macworld connects 36 drives to a Mac Pro, reviews results; Opera Coast iOS browser reviews at Time, and AppleInsider.

The drive works fine on the MBP/R, but drops off the [Mac Pro] USB frequently, giving the dreaded 'Eject this disk properly..' warning, sometimes getting corrupted enough to require reformatting and making it useless on the Mac Pro. I have tried it both without and with Seagate's seemingly superfluous Dashboard software, but it behaves similarly in either case." MacInTouch 5/25
