Apple’s Photos app may restore iPhoto editing features — Happy Leap Day! You won’t get this opportunity for another 4 years so maybe you should do something you don’t normally do … anyhow, Apple is rumoured to be planning big changes in its Photos applications for both OS X 10.12 and iOS, more closely aligning the capabilities of the iPhone and Mac apps while restoring some functionality previously found in iPhoto and lost in the transition to Photos. Key editing features that were axed included brush correction, adjusting the brightness of a selected portion of an image, the ability to flag pictures and EXIF data editing.

Excellent iMac hub idea needs help — If you own an iMac, you know it’s hard to reach the USB ports in the back. Enter the ExoHub, which can work without a power adapter. You can connect your iMac to the hub in three steps. Once connected, you have get access to four USB 3.0 ports, one rapid charger, and an SDXC card slots the iMac base sits on it exactly. If you back the project, you can receive an ExoHub and/or a MacBook stand – you get a bargain as well as a great enhancement to your Mac (I did so). Kickstarting is cheaper than retail – for example, they’ll ship you an ExoHub for US$89 instead of its retail shipping price of US$129once the unit goes into production.
