Former iOS Chief Scott Forstall Discusses Creating...

Former iOS chief Scott Forstall gave a rare interview last night at an event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, where he discussed the birth of the iPhone and his relationship with Steve Jobs.

Speaking to journalist John Markoff after an opening hour with original iPhone engineers Nitin Ganatra, Hugo Fiennes, and Scott Herz, Forstall's appearance was the first time he had spoken publicly since he was ousted from Apple in October 2012, following the botched launch of Apple Maps.

Scott Forstall (right) speaking to John Markoff

Forstall proved a charismatic storyteller on the night as he discussed his school education and his early career at Steve Jobs' NeXT, before moving on to his work on the first iPhone at Apple. The former iOS chief spoke with genuine warmth about his time with the company, but stopped short of offering any huge...

Apple CEO Tim Cook pushes for mandatory coding...

This is sort of nifty.

On Monday, at a technology summit with President Donald Trump, Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly suggested making programming a mandatory subject in the country’s schools.

Cook, who was among other tech executives, was among the representatives for the first gathering of the White House’s American Technology Council. Over the course of the meeting, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos suggested making more use of commercial technology, while Palantir CEO Alex Karp pointed to ways “big data” could be used to catch fraudulent federal spending. Palantir specializes in large-scale data analysis.

The American Technology Council, led by Trump advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner, was formed in May with the mission statement to “transform and modernize” government in the use of IT and digital services. Other firms represented at the meeting included the heads of Adobe, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, and Qualcomm as well as investor Peter Thiel.

Let’s see some love for iBooks, iBooks Author

In a June 19 article for The MacObserver, Andrew Orr asked Apple to not give up on iBooks in iOS 11. I’ll second that and add iBooks Author to the mix.

iBooks is a free ebook app that allows you to read publications purchased at the iBook Store. iBooks Author lets you create iBooks textbooks (as well as other types of books) for the iPad and Mac.

Orr was a little distressed to see no mention of iBooks at the recent Apple Worldwide Developer Conference. He’d like to see Apple make it easier to self-publish books in iTunes, offer monthly iBooks subscriptions, and more.

iBooks Author hasn’t received an update since January's 2.4.1 security update, and hasn't received a feature update since last September's version 2.4.  And yet, the software is used as much as it ever was, including in Apple's own new coding curriculum for...

By Frank Petrie

There are many ways to streamline your workflow on your Mac The most obvious example being automation. But there are other ways, as well.

My preferred method is using the Menu Bar. You can launch apps from there, you can run AppleScripts from there, you can perform a plethora of actions from there. (If anyone knows of how to run Automator scripts from there,  please let me know.)

Some repetitive tasks are mundane, like glancing at your Menu Bar for the time, weather, and such. All you need is the information quickly.  I’ve stumbled across a free Menu Bar app that keeps me from launching my Calendar app about 80% of the time. It’s called Itsycal.

Itsycal resides in you Menu Bar as an icon that displays the current date. It is a “companion” to your Calendar app. It utilizes all of you Calendar app’s information. All you need to do is click on the date icon and...

Millennials are the most experimental consumers

The older we get, the less likely we are to want to experiment with novel flavors and fragrances, according to research and consulting firm GlobalData (www.globaldata.com).

The research group’s latest report shows that younger consumers are the most experimental demographic, with GlobalData’s survey data showing that nearly four out five millennials globally say they enjoy experimenting with foreign products. This trend declines with age, with just 57% of those in the older “silent generation” (those born between 1925 and 1945) agreeing.

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,684,440) for “progressive rotational view” that hints that we may see more augmented reality apps such as Apple and IKEA are partnering on, not on just iOS devices, but Macs, as well.

Such apps will certainly be built around the ARKit that Apple introduced this month at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference. It allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.

Apple’s patent involves systems and methods for receiving and displaying images or sending the images for display include images having multiple key images of an object. Each key image depicts a perspective view of an item from a different angle around the object.

Vivaldi 1.10.867.38 - An advanced browser made with...

Vivaldi is a browser for our friends.

In 1994, two programmers started working on a web browser. Our idea was to make a really fast browser, capable of running on limited hardware, keeping in mind that users are individuals with their own requirements and wishes. Opera was born. Our little piece of software gained traction, our group grew, and a community was created. We stayed close to our users and to our roots. We kept improving our software, based on our users feedback, as well as our own ideas on how to make a great browser. We innovated and we strove for excellence. Fast forward to 2015, the browser we once loved has changed its direction. Sadly, it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place.

So we came to a natural conclusion:...

We must make a new browser. A browser for ourselves and a browser for our friends. A browser that is fast, but also a browser that is rich...

With iOS 11, Apple is delving into augmented reality in a big way, introducing an ARKit development platform that will allow developers to quickly and easily build augmented reality experiences into their apps and games.

The action cuts to what appears to be real videos and photos of an expecting family shot on iPhone. Those get made into a movie that the mother is watching years later. The tagline is, “Memories – movies made for you on iPhone 7. Practically magic.” I like the imagery and the analogy.

Why? For one reason, Google has more patents than most automakers on connected and self-driving cars. This is according to analytic firm Oliver Wyman’s new Automotive Manager released today.

“This is one of the most exciting times in the auto industry in decades, perhaps for a century. However, the excitement also brings challenges,” said August Joas, head of Oliver...

As noted by MacRumors, Apple has updated its Mac recycling program to partner with a new company, replacing longtime partner PowerOn with Phobio.

The company’s Recycle and Renew program allows you to recycle any Apple device online and at any Apple Store. For qualifying devices, you’ll receive a gift card online, and credit toward a purchase in-store. Apple will either refurbish the device for resale or recycle its materials to be reused.

Apple now directs you to Phobio's site from its Recycle and Rent page, and you can find your Mac by entering a serial number. After answering a couple of questions about condition, Phobio offers up a price estimate and lets users choose an Apple Store Gift Card, Paypal, or Virtual Visa Reward as a payment option.

Behind the scenes at the White House tech CEO meeting, Apple CEO Tim Cook told President Donald Trump that technology employees are "nervous" about the administration's approach to immigration, CNBC reports, citing a source familiar with the exchange. From the report: The source said the president told the CEOs on Monday that the Senate's health-care bill needs "more heart." That would be a second known instance of the president criticizing the GOP plan in private meetings. To that, the source said, Cook replied that the immigration approach by the administration also "needs more heart." Cook cited the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which is under review by the Trump administration. He also said people in tech and their co-workers were nervous about their status, and added that it "would be great" if the president could "send them a signal." Here's what executives of Amazon, Google, and Microsoft said.

Vivaldi is a browser for our friends.

In 1994, two programmers started working on a web browser. Our idea was to make a really fast browser, capable of running on limited hardware, keeping in mind that users are individuals with their own requirements and wishes. Opera was born. Our little piece of software gained traction, our group grew, and a community was created. We stayed close to our users and to our roots. We kept improving our software, based on our users feedback, as well as our own ideas on how to make a great browser. We innovated and we strove for excellence. Fast forward to 2015, the browser we once loved has changed its direction. Sadly, it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place.

So we came to a natural conclusion:...

We must make a new browser. A browser for ourselves and a browser for our friends. A browser that is fast, but also a browser that is rich...

Since the original iPhone, Qualcomm has supplied Apple with modems that enable the smartphone to, for example, connect to a Wi-Fi or LTE network. But as the iPhone has gained more features, Apple argues that Qualcomm has been unfairly "levying its own tax" on those...

To ensure you and your IT team can successfully integrate and update your IT policies, here are several features and considerations to keep in mind with your new cloud telephony solution:

What’s coming in tvOS 11, and what is still needed

Josh Centers posts about what’s new in tvOS 11, but then goes further, digging into what’s still needed.

I’d go further, and add the ability to support multiple Bluetooth interfaces, as I’ve written about here:

  • Pair two sets of AirPods to a single Apple TV: This would allow my wife and I to listen on headphones, each with a different volume level, a blessing for people with different hearing needs and for parents with sleeping infants.

  • Pass the audio through to HDMI while AirPods are active: This would allow someone with a hearing deficit to listen at a louder volume while the room gets the regular volume.

Terrific read.

New information about the lengths that Apple will go to in order to prevent and track down leaks has been shared online today by The Outline, which obtained a leaked recording of an internal briefing used by Apple to educate employees on the culture of leaks. Called "Stopping Leakers - Keeping Confidential at Apple," the presentation is said to last one hour and be led by a team of Apple's best security and communications experts including David Rice, Lee Freedman, and Jenny Hubbert.

The briefing was held for around 100 employees earlier this month and is believed to be the first of many such secretive events planned by the Cupertino company. The presentation included information on Apple's Global Security team, which employs an undisclosed number of investigators worldwide "to prevent information from reaching competitors, counterfeiters, and the press."

Benjamin Mayo, 9to5Mac:

The book claiming to explore the secret history of the iPhone, The One Device, is now on sale in physical form ($19 at Amazon). You can also preorder the ebook for Kindle and iBooks as well; it will be released digitally on Thursday.

The book in question is The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone. Here’s a link to the book on Amazon. Looks like the Kindle version is available now, though it seems like this might only be in the US.

Authored by Brian Merchant, the book promises to detail the ‘untold account’ of how the iPhone was made. It features anecdotes from ex-Apple executives and top employees about the development of the secret project, as well as an ‘undercover’ trip to Foxconn and more. Early reviews of ‘The One Device’ are mixed.

Apple is the top global vendor in IT

In the Gartner Global Top 100: IT vendors, Apple is the largest vendor with more than $218 billion in IT revenue — approximately $79 billion larger than the No. 2 vendor, Samsung Vendor Group. The top global 100 vendors in IT in 2016 are based on their revenue across IT (excluding communication services) and component market segments.

As enterprises increasingly digitalize their products and services, digital giants (Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) can become involved in, or even take over, the digital experience, according to the research group.

In iOS 11, App Store editorial comes out of the...

Jason Snell, Six Colors:

while the App Store has indeed had an editorial team for quite a while, Apple’s approach to App Store editorial has been nearly invisible. Editors select apps to highlight and might write short bits of text for use in collections, but for the most part the job has seemed to be more about curation than words.

This is not meant to disparage curation—it’s an important job and one of the ways the App Store can highlight the hard work of app developers who are making polished, impressive products.

Damn right! Curation is a skill and highly polished curation a valuable skill.

With iOS 11, though, Apple’s really showing that it has redefined what the App Store editorial team is for. In the redesigned App Store app in iOS 11, app highlights go way beyond buttons that would present an app’s App Store page when you tapped. The new Today tab is populated with full-fledged feature articles, with screen shots, videos, animations, pull quotes...

World’s first water park for people with disabilities

Mashable:

A new water park called Morgan’s Inspiration Island was designed for people with a wide range of disability identities — and it’s mind-blowingly accessible. The park, which opens June 17 in San Antonio, Texas, is fully wheelchair-accessible and hopes to welcome people with disabilities through careful consideration in design.

And:

The tropical-themed park features six major attractions, including an accessible river boat ride and a wide variety of splash pads — surfaces with geysers, water cannons, and rain curtains. Splash pads, unlike pools, are more accessible to people with mobility-related disabilities, but still provide the full water park experience.

And, notably, anyone with a disability is welcomed into the park for free.

This is amazing. Clearly, this was a labor of love, created with accessibility as a goal, rather than financial gain. Park founder Gordon Hartman did this for his daughter Morgan.

New FDA plan could mean big boost for Apple and...

Yahoo Finance:

When AAPL released the Apple Watch, it included a heart rate sensor. It has proven extremely accurate in testing, recently coming within 2% of the numbers reported by an electrocardiograph (EKG). However, AAPL has never marketed it as a medical device, because doing so would mean FDA certification.

Once under FDA regulation, the company would have to get each Apple Watch certified, in a process that could require months. Having to go through FDA certification would also reveal AAPL’s products before release — something the secretive company would hate — and could delay rolling out software updates.

But:

The FDA just announced its new Digital Health Innovation Plan, and it could change everything.

Noting that digital technologies used in consumer devices “have the power to transform health care,” the agency is trying to streamline the process needed for FDA approval. With a fall target for the pilot program, the FDA says it’s...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,684,341) for a flexible display that can be used as a self-updating digital newspaper. (By the way, the image shown is not of the device, but of a malleable LG plastic display; I included it to show one possible iteration of the Apple device.)

The invention relates to an apparatus and method to communicate multimedia documents or content to a mobile or fixed device over a wireless network. In particular, the mobile or fixed device may be configured as a digital periodical or advertising device to transmit and receive converted multimedia documents or content delivered using multimedia messaging service over a wireless network. A request to retrieve information from a server over a wireless network is triggered based on flexing the flexible display device and other gestures.

Beta version of NVMe driver in High Sierra builds...

Apple may have removed restrictions on the NVMe driver in the High Sierra beta, a move that might suggest that future Macs won’t be limited in which mass-storage flash drives may be used, possibly including both the “modular” Mac Pro and the iMac Pro.

The improved driver was first noted by the cool cats over at The Mac Observer. Through the improved driver, third-party NVMe drives could work on compatible motherboards without the need for a hacked driver.

At present, NVMe drives can only be used in assorted “Hackintosh” computers, as there are no official Macs with a standard NVMe drive slot. The beta for the new driver may resolve this issue, as on the vast majority of the motherboards tested by the community, the driver seems to be able to connect to all manufacturers’ NVMe drives.

Apple’s work on the updated driver could indicate that the company is looking to move beyond its current hardware and may adopt support for NVMe hardware, which has been found...

When it launches, the app will let customers choose which IKEA product they want and then use an iPhone or iPad powered by ARKit to see how the IKEA furniture looks in their own home before it’s purchased. IKEA has been doing this for years now, including an early version which required users to scan pages of an IKEA catalogue to view AR furniture, but the company said that Apple’s platform will greatly increase the consistency and quality of the experience.

Valdsgaard said that the app will support between 500 and 600 IKEA products at launch with more being added afterwards. The augmented reality experience will even directly play into the development and launch of new products, as Valdsgaard explained that the company plans to...

Scosche RH1060 are superb Bluetooth stereo headphones

Scosche's RH1060 Reference Grade Bluetooth headphones, at $199, are pricey, but they're the best all-around headphones I've ever used except for Apple's AirPods.

During use, I was astounded by the music quality. I'm not an audiophile, but the audio performance is impeccable. The bass is deep, the mid-range is warm and clean, the treble crisp, and the highs sound natural.

The RH1060 features 40mm drivers designed with a custom blend of mylar, precision wound copper voice coils and rare-earth neodymium magnets to create an extremely accurate musical reProduction.  A ported sound chamber Provides the exact air space necessary for optimal component performance.

'The One Device' Explores the Creation of...

As we noted last week, today marks the release of The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone, a new book from Motherboard editor Brian Merchant chronicling the development of the original iPhone. I've had a chance to read through the book before its launch, and overall it's an entertaining read, although it comes up a bit short in its promise to unveil the secret history of the landmark device.

The One Device is really a book in two parts, and the part directly covering the development of the original iPhone is actually only about 30 percent of the book, broken up into four chapters interspersed throughout. The remainder of the book covers topics that are related to the iPhone, but which are in most cases separate from the direct early iPhone history.

In the four chapters that cover the development of the iPhone, Merchant weaves together his own...

The Behind-the-Scenes Changes Found In MacOS High...

Apple officially announced macOS High Sierra at WWDC 2017 earlier this month. While the new OS doesn't feature a ton of user-visible improvements and is ultimately shaping up to be a low-key release, it does feature several behind-the-scenes changes that could help make it the most stable macOS update in years. Andrew Cunningham from Ars Technica has "browsed the dev docs and talked with Apple to get some more details of the update's foundational changes." Here are some excerpts from three key areas of the report: APFS Like iOS 10.3, High Sierra will convert your boot drive to APFS when you first install it -- this will be true for all Macs that run High Sierra, regardless of whether they're equipped with an SSD, a spinning HDD, or a Fusion Drive setup. In the current beta installer, you're given an option to uncheck the APFS box (checked by default) before you start the install process, though that doesn't necessarily guarantee that it will survive in the final version. It's also...
