An Apple filing with the FCC looks very much like it might be a new 4K UHD, 5th generation Apple TV just in time for the December holiday period.  It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that the old 4th generation Apple TV from October 2015 had been delayed. And now we may be getting what we really wanted all along just one year later.

Apple Watch Series 2: A Swimmer's Perspective

As a lifelong swimmer, I found the addition of 50-meter water resistance and swim workout tracking in the Apple Watch Series 2 to be a welcome improvement that made the new watch a must-have upgrade for me. While the original Apple Watch was not rated for swimming, many users had no issues regularly using it in the water, although its lack of built-in swim tracking features limited its usefulness.

With Apple Watch Series 2, Apple has not only upgraded the water resistance with new gaskets and seals to make it suitable for swimming, but added new Pool Swim and Open Water Swim workouts to help track your progress. As part of the Apple Watch Series 2 introduction earlier this month, Apple highlighted how it worked with swimmers in the company's fitness labs...

External Link: 500 Million Yahoo Accounts Stolen

Yahoo has announced that information associated with at least 500 million user accounts has been stolen by what the company believes is a state-sponsored actor. If you have a Yahoo account, you should change your password immediately and enable two-step verification. In addition, if you use Yahoo as your primary email provider, you should change the passwords for any online account tied to your Yahoo email address, since the thieves could have used password resets to gain access to those accounts as well. More so than any other recent example, this breach shows the importance of using a password manager like 1Password or LastPass to create and enter a separate strong random password for every site.

Fix your headphone dongles with iOS 10.0.2

Apple released iOS 10.0.2 to the general public today, the first update for iOS 10 since it was released last week (10.0.1, not 10.0, was the version number of the first public build).

The update's main fix is for the Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle that ships with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Headsets plugged into the dongle could become unresponsive if plugged into an idle phone for more than five or so minutes. Getting the headset and any volume or playback controls to work again required unplugging the dongle and plugging it back in. With today's update, that should...

The cargo was redirected, but not in time to avoid minor delays in residential deliveries of these packages. None of the phones were returned to their origin or routed on extraneous legs of the journey to their final destination.

Well, I never! iOS 10's voicemail transcription...

Anyone who has looked at automatically-generated subtitles on YouTube can tell you that asking a computer to describe what a human says can lead to hilarious results. Now, Apple has brought that issue to iOS 10 with support for transcribing voicemails.

It’s a cool feature that makes it easy to know what your Aunt Matilda said about the gastrointestinal problems her dog is having, without actually having to listen to a three-minute-long, blow-by-blow description. But be careful about trusting it—or reading the transcriptions around sensitive eyes.

I learned that the hard way Thursday when someone left me a message about a reorder special on a wine club shipment. Except my iPhone didn’t hear it that way, proudly telling me about “wearing your c**k s**t.”

Apple Is Getting Ready To Take On Google and Amazon...

An anonymous reader writes: Siri may soon be making the jump from your pocket to your end table. Apple has been working on a standalone product to control internet-of-things devices for a while, but a new report from Bloomberg suggests that the company has moved the project from a research phase to prototyping. It would theoretically be pitted against other smart-home devices, including Amazon's sleeper hit, the Echo, and Google's forthcoming Home Hub. According to the report, Apple's device would be controlled using its Siri voice assistant technology. It would be able to perform the same functions that it can complete now on iPhones, Macs, and other Apple products, such as being able to tell you when the San Francisco Giants are next playing, or possibly send a poorly transcribed text message. The device would also be able to control other internet-connected devices in the home, such as lights, door locks, and web-enabled appliances, as Google and Amazon's products can. It would...

The Galaxy Note7 recall put a dent in Samsung consumer confidence, with 34% of current customers saying they won't buy another smartphone from the brand, according to Branding Brand, a mobile e-commerce platform. Of these customers, 81% have always owned a Samsung or Android smartphone.

Most Samsung owners who say they are ready to switch will choose another Android phone (57%), but many will move to an iPhone (34%). Of current Samsung owners, 21% were previously iPhone owners. 

Following the September 15 U.S. recall of the Galaxy Note7 — due to concerns over faulty batteries that may explode in these devices — Branding Brand surveyed 1,000 Samsung smartphone customers to understand consumer confidence and loyalty with the brand. Of the Samsung customers that will stay loyal to the brand, 77% say it's because they don't want to learn a new phone. Other reasons Samsung customers cited for staying loyal with the...

Apple Submits Mystery 'Wireless Device'...

Earlier this week, we spotted an Apple filing for a nondescript "wireless device" pass through the FCC ID database. Apple characteristically requested permanent confidentiality for most of the documents in the filing, including photos, user manuals, and schematics, so the entry largely remains a mystery.

What we do know is the device has a model number of A1844, which does not line up with any existing Apple products. A regulatory label shows the device has two Torx screws on the back plate of the device, which appears to have at least two slightly curved edges. The device has an electrical rating of 5.5V to 13.2V.

Test reports completed by UL Verification Services also reveal the wireless device has Bluetooth and NFC, although Wi-Fi is not mentioned.

iOS Safari, Android Chrome, tweaked to enable video...

Jack Marshall, writing for The Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. and Google made tweaks to their popular mobile web browsers recently to enable video content to play automatically in web pages, provided audio is muted.

The changes could result in a boost in mobile video consumption for online publishers if they allow their videos to play automatically, and it could unlock new revenue opportunities as a result.

For marketers, the tweaks will enable them to automatically play video content when potential customers visit their websites.

Autoplay means you consume your data plan simply by visiting a site. Some sites hide the video, making it invisible, and others place the video at the bottom of an article, ensuring you’ll need to scroll through the entire article to get to that elusive pause button.

It’s unclear how consumers will react to having videos play automatically on mobile webpages. Some industry observers suggest Facebook’s introduction of...

Apple Watch Diary: Transforming the user-interface...

Apple used the word ‘courage’ recently to describe its decision to remove the headphone socket from the iPhone 7, and much fun was poked at the company by those who missed the reference. But what I personally found far more courageous was Apple effectively admitting that it got the original Apple Watch user-interface badly wrong, and completely revamping it in watchOS 3.

Glances never worked. They were supposed to be a fast way to see information from your favorite apps, and to go on to quickly open those apps when required. In reality, neither objective was achieved: data was slow to load, and so were the apps.

And the side-button for immediate access to contacts was simply the waste of a button. Using the Watch Dick Tracy-style for phone calls was never more than a novelty, and sending scribbles and the like to contacts was even more of a gimmick.

So Apple...

Daily Deal: iPhone 7 Razor Armor Shockproof &...

It's available in five colors! 

If you were one of the lucky folks to get a brand new iPhone 7 during the last week -- especially that Jet Black model -- then you'll want to take note of today's AWT Deals Shop bargain. We've partnered with ZeroLemon for their iPhone 7 Razor Armor Shockproof & Scratch Resistant Case for just $21.99.  

Sure, that iPhone 7 is water-resistant on its own, but it can still suffer the consequences of an accidental drop. That's where Razor Armor comes in handy, giving a double layer of polycarbonate interchangeable shell, combined with a soft TPU inner frame. All of this protection only adds 0.15" to your phone, and still provides full accessibility to all the iPhone 7's ports (including...

Feature Request: iPhone 7 stereo speakers amplify...

Not only is the iPhone 7 capable of outputting louder sound, but it also features two speakers that are capable of producing true stereo output.

The two speakers — one in the bottom of the iPhone, and one in the earpiece — are a first for an iPhone. Although the iPhone 7 doesn’t feature the four-speaker ensemble found on the iPad Pro, it is capable of producing true stereo-separated sound that your ears can perceive while the phone is oriented in landscape mode.

There’s just one problem. Unlike other apps, the iPhone Music app doesn’t yet support landscape mode…

Bloomberg: Apple stepping up plans for Amazon Echo-...

Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is pressing ahead with the development of an Echo-like smart-home device based on the Siri voice assistant, according to people familiar with the matter.

Started more than two years ago, the project has exited the research and development lab and is now in prototype testing, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing unannounced Apple projects. Like Amazon Inc.’s Echo, the device is designed to control appliances, locks, lights and curtains via voice activation, the people said. Apple hasn’t finalized plans for the device and could still scrap the project.

There were breaths of a rumor that this device would see the light of day this year, but they faded away. I’d like to see a device like this as a living room or kitchen information anchor, well integrated with iOS and macOS. The key is to make sure only one device responds when you trigger it with “Hey, Siri”.

Gurman doesn’t say what the smart home device will be, but presumably it will be some kind of speaker. The aim is for the Siri device to control smart home appliances—presumably via HomeKit—similar to the Echo. The Siri device would likely also be able to carry out the same tasks that the personal digital assistant already does on the iPhone and iPad. ...

Ryan Jones noticed an interesting change with Apple’s reported battery life specs.

First, take a look at the image in this tweet.

Note the focus on wireless with the iPhone 7, a word not found in the same iPhone 6s and 6s Plus specs.

From Ryan’s tweet:

Stereo speakers crush battery.

1 hr playback > 10%. Possibly why Apple changed the battery life specs to “wireless”.

Interesting. Clearly, onboard speakers will always chew up more iPhone battery than wireless headphones.

Why? The iPhone speakers are consuming the onboard battery, while the wireless headphones draw from their own batteries, not counting against the battery life measurement for the iPhone itself. There is a nominal drain for Bluetooth communication, but that’s not nearly as big a drain as driving...

Apple Watch Hermès Series 2 models, released on a pre-order basis last week, are now officially available for purchase both online and in stores.

Apple offers seven different Hermès models designed with handcrafted leather, including three with Single Tour bands, two with Double Tour bands, one with a Single Tour Deployment Buckle, and one with a Double Buckle Cuff. Prices range between $1,149 and $1,499 in the United States.

The new models serve as a refresh to last year's original Apple Watch Hermès lineup, released in October 2015. The new Series 2 models have the same custom Hermès watch face, but beyond that and the bands, the Hermès models are identical to regular Apple Watch models.

iOS 10 moves some of your stuff around a little and makes other stuff look a little different, but fundamentally it acts very much like what you’re used to underneath those new notification bubbles and 3D Touch gimmicks.

But layered underneath those cosmetic changes are some features that push your apps even further, beyond just their icons, into various corners of the operating system. It’s easy to look down your nose at Widgets and iMessage stickers, but when they’re combined with extensions, you begin to see a system where you have access to information from ESPN, Weather, Uber, and much more, all without opening those apps at all. It’s like Android’s widgets, but with a developer ecosystem that might actually be...

Reuters: Japan’s antitrust watchdog considers action...

Yoshiyasu Shida , writing for Reuters:

Japanese regulators are considering taking action against Apple Inc over possible antitrust violations that may have helped it dominate the nation’s smartphone sales, government sources said, a move that could hit the company’s profit margins in one of its most profitable markets.

In a report published last month, Japan’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) said that NTT Docomo, KDDI Corp and Softbank Group were refusing to sell older surplus iPhone models to third party retailers, thereby hobbling smaller competitors.

This seems more about resellers than Apple. But:

Apple was not named in that report, but two senior government sources told Reuters that regulators were also focusing on Apple’s supply agreements with all three carriers.

Under those deals, surplus stock of older iPhones is kept out of the market and sent to overseas markets, such as Hong Kong, according to industry sources.

Pyle Audio takes on home automation with Smart Robot...

One of the few home automation product categories that I find really useful is home robotics, particularly with robot vacuum cleaners. I've owned robot vacuums since the days of the first Roombas, and they're perfect for tidying up rooms while getting other work done. Pyle Audio is moving into this space today with the new $289.99 Smart Robot Vacuum with Built-in Camera, which features not only six different cleaning modes, but an HD camera that can show you -- via an iPhone app -- what just got cleaned up under that couch!

As a robot vacuum owner, I can see a lot to like about Pyle's Smart Robot Vacuum. There are twin side brushes that are quite long, perfect for getting into corners that most other robot vacuums leave untouched. At 3.4 inches tall, the Smart Robot Vacuum can squeak under a lot of beds, couches and chairs that would block competing robots.

The six cleaning modes represent a spectrum of ways that...

Perhaps it's time for Apple to introduce its own cellular network and make plans for data only cellular towers. When Apple first introduced the first iPhone, some pundits thought our favorite tech company might do just that. 

Considering how current companies are increasing their data cost to users, and given Google's expansion into the wired Internet service business, perhaps Apple should begin using its horde of cash to purchase bandwidth and towers around the U.S. 

FaceTime has an audio-only capability, and iOS devices are consuming a huge amount of data. Such a move could be a game changer for mobile computing in this country -- possibly the world. Talk about thinking different.

How to open ANY app in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra really doesn’t want you to run apps that weren’t purchased from the Mac App Store. Before the latest version of the Mac operating system, you could allow apps to be downloaded from the Mac App Store, identified developers, and “anywhere.” The latter option has vanished in Sierra. However, there are still two ways to do this.

First, download the app and move it to your Applications folder. Right-click on its icon and select Open. After you select Open, Sierra will frantically warn you that the app is “from an unidentified developer” and ask if you’re really dumb enough to open it (well, okay, so it asks if you really want to open it). If you do, click Open; if you don’t, click Cancel. 

There’s a second way. Download the app and move it to your Applications folder. Launch it, and you’ll get the same warning. However, you’ll only be presented with a blue “OK” button. Click it and you’re taken to the Finder. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy...

Signs You’ve Hit Your Stride In IT

My latest post is up over on Huffington Post. It starts a little like this:

You work hard, you work harder, and then you get a montage. The montage starts when you get hit in the face with a pizza by the other engineers on your team. Then you get a little better as Bon Jovi or Tina Turner belt out a power ballad just for you. Then things start to click. You catch the bugs before you compile, you close all the tickets in your queue, and finally you get carried out of the office door on the shoulders of your coworkers, given the key to the city, and promoted to Grand Puba. It’s awesome.

19-Year-Old Jailbreaks iPhone 7 In 24 Hours

An anonymous reader writes: 19-year-old hacker qwertyoruiop, aka Luca Todesco, jailbroke the new iPhone 7 just 24 hours after he got it, in what's the first known iPhone 7 jailbreak. Todesco tweeted a screenshot of a terminal where he has "root," alongside the message: "This is a jailbroken iPhone 7." He even has video proof of the jailbreak. Motherboard reports: "He also said that he could definitely submit the vulnerabilities he found to Apple, since they fall under the newly launched bug bounty, but he hasn't decided whether to do that yet. The hacker told me that he needs to polish the exploits a bit more to make the jailbreak 'smoother,' and that he is also planning to make this jailbreak work through the Safari browser just like the famous 'jailbreakme.com,' which allowed anyone to jailbreak their iPhone 4 just by clicking on a link." Apple responded to the news by saying, "Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks iOS."

Yahoo confirms 500 million accounts compromised

Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) confirmed on Thursday data “associated with at least 500 million user accounts” have been stolen in what may be one of the largest cybersecurity breaches ever.

The company said it believes a “state-sponsored actor” was behind the data breach, meaning an individual acting on behalf of a government. The breach is said to have occurred in late 2014.

At Least 500 Million Yahoo Accounts Hacked in Late...

Yahoo today confirmed that "at least" 500 million Yahoo accounts were compromised in an attack in late 2014, leaking customer information like names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birthdates, hashed passwords, and both encrypted and unencrypted security questions and answers.

Yahoo does not believe unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information was accessed, as that data is not stored in the system that was hacked. According to Yahoo, account information was stolen by a "state-sponsored actor" and the company is working with law enforcement on a full investigation.

Starting today, Yahoo will notify all affected users and is asking them to change their passwords immediately if passwords have not been changed since 2014. All compromised security questions and answers have also been invalidated. Yahoo has laid out a set of recommendations...

Review: SmartX Galaxy ZEGA Starter Kit

There's been an interesting market developing over the past few years for iPhone-controlled toys, beginning with Parrot's original AR.Drone in 2010 and moving on through a series of smaller drones, battle tanks, rovers, rolling balls, and more. While each of these have had their own merits, most of the toys we've seen in this category have generally been simple remote control devices with open-ended play and no specific "gaming" element behind them. This makes Galaxy ZEGA, a new entry into the market from Chinese startup SmartX, all the more interesting, as the company has gone quite a ways beyond the simple RC model into creating an interactive game that mixes real-world play with a more typical gaming experience, extending on-device gaming into the real world. It's currently available for pre-order and should be available soon — it was released in China in 2015.{/exp:char_limit}

Tuplejump’s website has been taken down following the acquisition, but a Wayback Machine capture of its about page has the company describing itself this way:

“A few years ago people realized that the volume of data that businesses generate was becoming unwieldy. A new set of technologies to handle this huge amounts of data cropped up. We were one of the early adopters of these ‘big-data’ technologies. Having helped Fortune 500 companies adopt these technologies we quickly realized how complicated they were and how...
