The Mac Finder offers a variety of methods of merging two folders contents together into a single directory. One option allows users to join different directory contents together that contain files with the same names, using the ‘keep both’ function in OS X Finder.

This can be a little confusing at first glance, but after a bit of practice you’ll understand a bit more how the feature works and how you can use it to merge directory contents with files that share the same names together into a single folder, entirely by using the OS X Finder.

In today’s highly dynamic and even chaotic mobile realm there is little certainty in terms of roadmaps and release schedules. Apple, however, is still upholding the values of diligence and continuity and, as expected, a new wave of iPhones is inbound on September 9. In keeping with the long-standing naming convention, we can also be fairly sure that these will be the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus.

This means than in all likelihood Apple is going to continue its new phablet line, but there has also been mention of a successor to the infamous iPhone 5c. Previous rumors brought us info on the smaller smartphone and even a few alleged shots of its casing, but the estimated launch date was a few month after the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Samsung may be the biggest seller of Android devices, but it’s far from alone: there are now 1,300 brands behind the one billion Android handsets now in use across the globe.
OpenSignal, the maker of an app that gauges mobile signals, has released its fourth annual Android fragmentation report, which found a total of 24,093 different Android devices now in the wild, made by 1,294 companies.
It’s a vastly different picture to 2012: 1,000 of the brands that appear in this year’s survey didn’t exist three years ago. Now, there’s a growing number of Android device makers both large and small, chipping away at Samsung’s dominance and chasing the small slice of the industry’s profits that aren’t held by Apple.

Supercomputers are serious things, called on to do serious computing. They tend to be engaged in serious pursuits like atomic bomb simulations, climate modeling and high-level physics. Naturally, they cost serious money. At the very top of the latest Top500 supercomputer ranking is the Tianhe-2 supercomputer at China’s National University of Defense Technology. It cost about $390 million to build.

But then there’s the supercomputer that Joshua Kiepert, a doctoral student at Boise State’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department, created with Raspberry Pi computers. It cost less than $2,000.

No, I’m not making that up. It’s an honest-to-goodness supercomputer made from overclocked 1-GHz Model B Raspberry Pi ARM11 processors with Videocore IV GPUs. Each one comes with 512MB of RAM, a pair of USB ports and a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet port.

Last week, we released Windows 10 as a free upgrade in over 190 markets, taking the first big step toward upgrading 1 billion devices to Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Alongside Windows, we also delivered the Windows SDK and accompanying tools that you’ll use to build and submit Universal Windows apps.

Windows 10 introduced new APIs and built a platform that does much of the work to make apps more personal through adaptive UX, natural user inputs and cloud-based services. We also introduced a series of “bridging” technologies to enable developers to bring their existing iOS, Android, Web and desktop code and skillsets to the Windows Store, for which I’ll provide an update here.

While animations may have great visual appeal, they also make app experiences more intuitive and engaging. Animation can make an app feel more fluid and responsive by providing feedback on user interaction. This means that, for designers, creating authentic animations is increasingly becoming a part of the job description.
