MLB’s Bob Bowman Streaming Live At Disrupt NY — The MLB's streaming arm, MLB Advanced Media, was founded in 2000 and has been streaming live video to the web longer than anyone. MLBAM got so good at live that it's been tapped by HBO, Sony, EPSN and many others to handle their streaming efforts.

Apple Acquires Durable Database Company FoundationDB — Apple has acquired FoundationDB, a company that specializes in speedy, durable NoSQL databases, TechCrunch has learned. A notice on the FoundationDB site notes that it's no longer offering downloads of its database software. Financial terms of the deal were not available.

Square Cash Opens Its Door To Businesses, Introduces $Cashtags — Square is expanding its Cash product to allow businesses to accept payments. In addition, Square is announcing a new identity system called Cashtags (technically $Cashtags) that allows people to claim a unique address that can be used by anyone to send cash directly. I've been waiting for Cash to expand to paying businesses.

MLBAM's Bob Bowman On HBO, Apple And Streaming All The Things — On March 9th of 2014, millions of HBO subscribers huddled around their device of choice and tried to watch the season finale of the smash hit True Detective. The service was swamped under the wash of demand and fell over. The backlash was swift and merciless and people had to turn to traditional cable to get their fix.

Empathy Machines — The annals of live video are littered with cautionary tales. For every hype-driven social video startup that had a coming out party at South By Southwest, there is a matching tombstone. On The Talk Show earlier this week I talked to host John Gruber about Meerkat.

Apple’s New MacBook’s Trackpad Does Not Move — If you've been scouring the coverage of Apple's new MacBook, you'll probably already know this. But I did an informal poll and a lot of folks did not, so I thought I'd mention it. The new trackpad does not move, at all. When you 'click' it, it 'clicks', but it doesn't actually click.

TC AppleCast 8: Our Video Recap Of The Apple Event — On Monday, Apple held a special event focused on the all-new 12-inch MacBook with a Retina display, and the Apple Watch, providing us a deeper look at the smartwatch's software. The special event merits a special podcast, so we got Matthew Panzarino, Darrell Etherington and Kyle Russell together to capture the magic on video.

Apple’s ‘Spring Forward’ Watch Event Live Blog — At 10 AM PT on Monday, March 9, Apple will be hosting an event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, and the Apple Watch will probably be the start of the show.

Selling A Wearable Apple — "Oh, Apple's making a luxury watch thing, of course it hired the CEO of Burberry to pitch it." That's the common line of thinking when it comes to how Apple will change its retail operations to sell the watch.

The Apple Watch Is Time, Saved — With $45 Million In Funding, Augmented Reality Platform Blippar Is Rethinking Search Over the course of investigating the Apple Watch, I've spoken to several sources who have spent extended time with it. There are a lot of interesting details, some of which we'll get into.
