Google last week released its E2EMail encryption code to open source as a way of pushing development of the technology. "Google has been criticized over the amount of time and seeming lack of progress it has made in E2EMail encryption, so open sourcing the code could help the project proceed more quickly," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT. That will not stop critics, as reactions to the decision have shown, he said. However, it should enable the company to focus its attention and resources on issues it believes are more pressing.

Apple says it’s temporarily stopped buying cobalt (used in lithium ion batteries) mined by hand in Congo while it continues to deal with problems with child labor and harsh work conditions.

Last year, Apple pledged to clean up its cobalt supply chain, but the tech giant said it wanted to avoid hurting the Congolese miners by cutting them off. Mining provides vital income for hundreds of thousands of people in what is one of the world's poorest countries. Now, Apple tells the Post it’s...

NeXTWORLD poster signed by Steve Jobs could fetch...

A rare NeXTWORLD Expo poster signed by Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction. The color 24 x 30 poster promoting the inaugural NeXTWORLD Expo held at San Francisco's Civic Auditorium and Brooks Hall on Jan. 22–24, 1992, is signed in the upper border in black ink by Jobs. 

Having resigned from Apple in the fall of 1985, Jobs founded the NeXT project, a computer and software company aimed at the markets of business and higher education. The first NeXT Computer was introduced in 1988, and the smaller NeXTstation two years later. While the computers themselves saw subpar sales, the NeXTSTEP operating system and development environment proved highly influential.

Apple purchased NeXT in 1997 for $429 million and 1.5 million shares of Apple stock, with Jobs, as part of the agreement, returning to the company he had co-founded in 1976. The consignor of this piece worked for Canon USA and was demonstrating the NeXT computers in a booth...

f.lux 39.94 - Adjusts the color of your display...

f.lux makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow? Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen? During the day, computer screens look good - they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9 p.m., 10 p.m., or 3 a.m., you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun. It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically.

Apple Cracks Down Further On Cobalt Supplier in...

Last year, a Washington Post investigation found several instances of miners -- including children -- labored in hazardous, even deadly, conditions at Congo's artisanal cobalt supply chain. Amnesty International and other human rights groups also have alleged problems. Earlier this week, British broadcaster Sky New published an investigation that alleged continued problems in the cobalt supply chain. The Washington Post now reports: Apple said it has temporarily stopped buying cobalt mined by hand in Congo while it continues to deal with problems with child labor and harsh work conditions. The Post connected this troubling trade to Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Company, a Chinese firm that is the largest buyer of artisanal cobalt in Congo and whose minerals are used in Apple products. Last year, Apple pledged to clean up its cobalt supply chain, but the tech giant said it wanted to avoid hurting the Congolese miners by cutting them off. Mining provides vital income for hundreds of...

Apple Is Expanding Its War With Qualcomm

Apple has opened a new front in its global patent war with Qualcomm. From a report: The Cupertino, Calif.-based company has sued Qualcomm in a U.K. court, accusing the chipmaker of violating patents and design concepts Apple owns. Details on exactly which patents Qualcomm has violated and why Apple believes Qualcomm has violated the patents were not disclosed in the public court records, according to Bloomberg, which earlier reported on the lawsuit. The lawsuit is the latest in a string of disputes Apple and Qualcomm have engaged in around the world. The main dispute resides in the U.S., where Apple has accused Qualcomm of using its position as a prominent chipmaker to hurt competition in the mobile marketplace. Apple, which has used Qualcomm chips for its iPhone's wireless connectivity, claims Qualcomm owes the company $1 billion in rebates the chip maker allegedly held back after Apple spoke to South Korean regulators about Qualcomm's business practices.

An 81-Year-Old Woman Just Created Her Own iPhone App

After 43 years working in one of Japan's leading banks, 81-year-old Masako Wakamiya has launched an iPhone app called "Hinadan" that shows users how to stage traditional dolls for the Hinamatsuri festival. From a report on CNN Money: She says she felt compelled to do something after noticing a shortage of fun apps aimed at people her age. "We easily lose games when playing against young people, since our finger movements can't match their speed," Wakamiya told CNN. The retired banker asked a bunch of people to create games for seniors, but no one was interested. So she took matters into her own hands and achieved something many people half her age haven't done. "I wanted to create a fun app to get elderly people interested in smartphones," she said. "It took about half a year to develop." Wakamiya started using computers at age 60 when she was caring for her elderly mother and finding it difficult to get out and socialize with friends.

Apple reportedly looking for a ‘transformative...

Senior Apple executives — including Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services— have reached out to some of Hollywood’s most successful TV and film producers recent about going to work for the tech giant, according to the New York Post. The article claims the Cupertino, California-based company is looking for a “transformative acquisition and not just a deal to buy TV shows.”

“They talked to Sony and Paramount last week. They are preparing something big,” The Post says, quoting an unnamed source.

Apple has dipped its toes into original programming with Planet of the Apps and Carpool Karaoke, which it will offer via an Apple Music subscription.

The company considered a buyout of Time Warner in late 2015, but it didn’t pan out. And, of course, there’s ongoing speculation that Apple plans to launch its...

Out of 12.6 million mobile devices shipped to primary and secondary schools in the U.S., Chromebooks accounted for 58 percent of the market, up from 50 percent in 2015. Meanwhile, school shipments of iPads and Mac laptops fell to 19 percent, from about 25 percent, over the same period, while Microsoft Windows laptops and tablets stayed relatively stable at about 22 percent.

If you haven’t ordered the Nintendo Switch yet, you’ll have to wait a few weeks, and that might not be a bad thing. Launch days are always a mess.

Apple will use its own Authentec algorithm combined with Privaris glass identification technology to redesign a new fingerprint ID solution instead of Synaptics' Natural ID touch fingerprint sensor or Qualcomm's Sense ID fingerprint technology for its OLED “iPhone 8,” reports DigiTimes, quoting unnamed “industry sources.”

Apple acquired AuthenTec, a company that makes fingerprint sensors and identify management software, as well as a handful of chip foundries, in 2015. The Apple designed "built-in fingerprint sensor device" will almost replace the current TouchID capacitive touch technology.

Privaris primarily makes tiny fingerprint readers that attach to your key chain. In 2015, the company transferred 26 of its 31 patents to Apple.

Production for the new OLED iPhone is unlikely to start until September due to the redesigned fingerprint ID solution, says DigiTimes. This...

At an operating system level, Chromebooks continue to gain market share, reaching 58% in 2016, up from 50% in 2015. The strong combination of affordable devices, productivity tools via G-Suite, easy integration with third party platforms/tools, task management/distribution via Google Classroom and easy device management remains extremely popular with US teachers and IT buyers alike.

Comment: Offering a 32GB iPhone 6 as an entry-level...

Apple has an interesting tightrope to walk when it comes to entry-level products. While you and I may choose Apple products because we like the UI, the ecosystem and the designs, a large chunk of the company’s customer base automatically buys Apple simply because it is seen as the most premium brand. They may not know the specific benefits of Apple products, but they are – to quote an old ad slogan for a lager – reassuringly expensive. If they cost more, they must be better.

Indeed, in many markets, being seen with an iPhone, iPad or Mac bestows social status for that very reason, making them aspirational products.

Apple cannot afford to dent that premium image by offering low-end products, but at the same time it needs to bring in new customers to maintain growth. So far, its approach to doing this has seemed to me to be smart. But offering a 32GB...

Apple sues Qualcomm in UK court

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. sued Qualcomm Inc. in a U.K. court, adding to lawsuits across the globe in a sprawling battle over patents and licensing fees between the iPhone developer and the largest designer of mobile phone chips.

And:

Apple is separately suing Qualcomm in California, accusing it of monopolizing the market for chips for wireless devices and withholding $1 billion in retaliation for cooperating with South Korean antitrust authorities.

At the heart of the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm is a push by phone makers, with support of some regulators, to reduce the patent royalties Qualcomm charges. Qualcomm gets the bulk of its revenue from selling chips, but more than half of its profit from a separate licensing business.

Sprawling. Exactly.

Bare Bones to retire TextWrangler, fold features...

If I read this right, Bare Bones Software will take all of TextWrangler and fold it into the demo version of BBEdit. When your free 30-day demo expires, you’ll still have basic BBEdit features and ALL of the TextWrangler features.

Smart move, and respectful of the user base. And it still doesn’t suck.

Apple adds second-generation Apple TV to “vintage”...

As much as you may love your second-generation Apple TV, it’s now on Apple’s “vintage” and “obsolete”products list, thereby rendering it ineligible for repairs in most parts of the world.

With the new change, the only places where service and parts may still be available are in Turkey and California, where the device is still classified as “vintage” according to an Apple support document. Vintage devices are defined as being made over 5 but less than 7 years ago, and the category typically excludes products from support except where required by law.

For all other places, the second-generation Apple TV has been declared “obsolete”, which generally refers to products discontinued more than seven years ago.

The second-generation Apple TV launched in September of 2010 with production ending in 2012, when it was replaced by the third-generation unit.

Apple is already largely distancing itself from the third-gen model, providing minimal updates. A fourth-...

Rumor: All three 2017 iPhone models to feature...

It’s thought that all three upcoming iPhones will both retain the Lightning connectors but add USB-C Power Delivery for faster charging. The rumors currently state that Apple will release an all-new OLED model with a larger L-shaped battery and updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo offered the following comment in his most recent note:

New 2H17 models may all support fast charging. We believe all three new iPhones launching in 2H17 will support fast charging by the adoption of Type-C Power Delivery technology (while still retaining the Lightning port). A key technical challenge lies with ensuring product safety and stable data transmission during a fast charge. In order to achieve that goal, we think Apple will adopt TI’s power management and Cypress’s Power Delivery chip solutions for the new iPhone models. We note the OLED version may have a faster charging speed thanks to a 2-cell L shaped battery pack design...

The Cloud just had a thunderstorm … now what?

By Denis Goodwin

We’ve all heard about and likely experienced the impact of the most recent Amazon S3 outage, and while it’s easy to pick on Amazon for the wide-spread fallout this outage caused, that’s not the point. Whether your business critical apps are hosted on AWS, Azure, GCP, or any other cloud or hosting platform, you need to be monitoring those apps. The impact of the AWS outage shows us how much companies rely on cloud and hosting providers, like AWS, for the critical applications their customers and employees use every day.

How to stop pop-up ads in macOS Sierra’s Safari

Do pop-up ads annoy you as much as they annoy me? If so, you can stop ‘em fro popping in macOS Sierra’s Safari web browser. Here’s how:

Start by closing any pop-ups that are open on your Mac. Press the Close button on the pop-up. If the pop-up reappears or will not close, you can click the “x” on the tab or close the entire Safari window.

Close Safari. The next time you open the web browser, hold down the Shift key while Safari opens. This prevents Safari from automatically reopening any windows.

Digitimes is today reporting that Apple has developed a custom fingerprint sensor replacement for Touch ID, which will allow Apple to offer biometric fingerprint recognition in the iPhone 8 — a device that is rumoured to have no bezels at all. The report describes the component as a ‘built-in’ sensor which very much implies that it is integrated into the screen.

Rather than use Synaptic or Qualcomm technology, Apple will reportedly be building its own system using Authentec algorithms and Privaris glass tech. Strangely, the report also says that the iPhone 8 will not go into mass production until September …

Amazon S3 disruption was caused by human error

The Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) team was debugging an issue causing the S3 billing system to progress more slowly than expected. At 9:37AM PST, an authorized S3 team member using an established playbook executed a command which was intended to remove a small number of servers for one of the S3 subsystems that is used by the S3 billing process. Unfortunately, one of the inputs to the command was entered incorrectly and a larger set of servers was removed than intended. The servers that were inadvertently removed supported two other S3 subsystems.

It’s good that Amazon got to the bottom of this and let all of its customers know exactly what happened.

With Apple Music at 20M Users, Spotify Hits 50M...

Spotify this afternoon announced that it has hit a new milestone, reaching a total of 50 million paying subscribers. That's up from 40 million in September, suggesting Spotify is growing at a rapid pace despite the surging popularity of Apple Music.

As of December, Apple Music had over 20 million paying subscribers, and if the service has been growing at its typical pace, that number could now be somewhere around 22 million. Apple Music had 15 million subscribers in June of 2016 and 17 million subscribers in September of 2016.

Thank you to our 50 million subscribers....

Netgear's R6300v2 dual-band 802.11ac router is...

If you’ve been waiting for an dual-band 802.11ac router to drop below $100, you’re in luck. Amazon is selling the Netgear AC1750 R6300v2 smart router today for $70. That’s about $22 off Amazon’s list price and well below other online retailers, and a return to the lowest price we’ve seen.

The R6300v2 has a few features in common with Netgear’s R6400, which we reviewed in August 2015—though the two routers look nothing like each other. Like the R6400, the discounted R6300 features a maximum throughput of 1300 Megabits per second on...

Report: iPads, Macs both losing ground in the U.S....

Apple’s iPads and Macs — which accounted for about half of the mobile devices shipped to schools in the United States in 2013 — are steadily losing ground to inexpensive Chromebook laptops, according to a new report from Futuresource Consulting.

In fact, devices running iOS and macOS have hit a new low, falling to third place behind both Google-powered laptops and Windows devices in the education market, notes the research group. However, sales of mobile computers in the U.S. K-12 sector continued to develop in 2016, with annual shipments growing 18% year-on-year in 2016, reaching 12.6 million units, up from 10.7 million in 2015. Futuresource Consulting says the outlook for 2017 is also positive with market shipment growth forecast to remain in double figures.

At an operating system level, Chromebooks continue to gain market share, reaching 58% in 2016, up from 50% in 2015. According to Futuresource...

It looked like Smartflash LLC had Apple right where it wanted it after a jury awarded the patent-holding company $533 million—one of the largest patent verdicts in history.

The dreams of patent riches have gone up in smoke after a panel of appeals judges ruled that all three of Smartflash's patents are invalid as overly abstract. At this point in history, a one-employee patent-holding company with no novel legal argument has an...
