AWT TV Episode 25: October 17, 2017

Wow - hard to believe that we're already up to our 25th episode of AWT TV! It's a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.  

No Apple announcements this week, of course, so we spent plenty of time talking about...whatever. 

After a slight bout of Internetitis (the livestream was acting weird), we got underway. Steve was on his third podcast of the day; the previous one (MacVoices) was all about the Apple Watch Series 3. That diverged into a conversation about Bear (bear-writer.com), a surprisingly good text editor that even has an Apple Watch app! Dennis brought up how his wife was able to use her older Apple Watch on a known network miles away from her...

A Better Finder Attributes 6.06 - Change file...

A Better Finder Attributes is the ultimate file-tweaking tool for OS X. It combines photo-shooting date and file date changing along with a few unique tricks of its own.

  • Change EXIF Timestamps at Will - A Better Finder Attributes 5 allows you to manipulate JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF CRW and CIFF EXIF timestamps at will by setting them to specific times or batch adjusting them by adding and removing time (useful for correcting the timestamps of images taken with a digital camera with a incorrectly set clock and to compensate for timezone changes).

Selling your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar? Apple...

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

If you’re selling (or generously handing down) your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Apple recommends an extra step when erasing your data before parting ways with your machine. This step requires an obscure Terminal command that you wouldn’t assume and isn’t required on Macs without the Touch Bar.

Here’s the Apple Support document titled What to do before you sell or give away your Mac.

Check out step 6, “If you have a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, clear its data”.

Begs the question, what is specifically stored in the Touch Bar that requires cleaning? Good to know that this step is necessary, but a bit of a mystery. Anyone know the specifics? Please do ping me.

Nice find, Zac.

UPDATE: And the answer is, this script removes your Touch ID data from your...

∞ Goodbye Uncanny Valley

[VIDEO] This is an amazing look at the state of the art in computer graphics, movie CGI. The video is embedded on the main Loop page.

From the Vimeo page:

It’s 2017 and computer graphics have conquered the Uncanny Valley, that strange place where things are almost real… but not quite. After decades of innovation, we’re at the point where we can conjure just about anything with software. The battle for photoreal CGI has been won, so the question is… what happens now?

I found the whole thing riveting. We are so very close to a world filled with conjured realities that are indistinguishable from real life. When that becomes our reality, what then? [H/T Kottke]

Here are Twitter’s latest rules for fighting hate...

Erin Griffith, Wired:

On Friday CEO Jack Dorsey announced plans to act more aggressively. Twitter will introduce new rules around unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorifies violence, he tweeted. To add a sense of urgency, the company is holding daily meetings on the issue.

And:

The new plans stop short of sweeping measures such as banning pornography or specific groups like Nazis. Rather, they offer expanded features such as allowing observers of unwanted sexual advances—as well as victims—to report them, and expanded definitions, such as including “creep shots” and hidden camera content under the definition of “non-consensual nudity.” The company also plans to hide hate symbols behind a “sensitive image” warning, though it has not yet defined what qualifies as a hate symbol. Twitter also says it will take unspecified enforcement actions against “organizations that use/have historically used violence...

The mathematical genius of Auto-Tune

Zachary Crockett, Priceonomics:

Auto-Tune — one of modern history’s most reviled inventions — was an act of mathematical genius.

The pitch correction software, which automatically calibrates out-of-tune singing to perfection, has been used on nearly every chart-topping album for the past 20 years. Along the way, it has been pilloried as the poster child of modern music’s mechanization.

And:

For inventor Andy Hildebrand, Auto-Tune was an incredibly complex product — the result of years of rigorous study, statistical computation, and the creation of algorithms previously deemed to be impossible.

And:

“The sampling synthesizers sounded like shit: if you sustained a note, it would just repeat forever,” he harps. “And the problem was that the machines didn’t hold much data.”

Hildebrand, who’d “retired” just a few months earlier, decided to take matters into his own hands. First, he created a processing algorithm that greatly condensed the...

Why Apple should make Mac chips: Windows 10 ARM...

Industry players, such as Microsoft, have arrived in Hong Kong this week for Qualcomm’s 4G/5G Summit, an annual event to strategize and discuss trends and technology developments.

One of the topics of surefire interest revolves around Microsoft’s upcoming ARM-powered Windows 10 laptop. In a glimpse into its battery life potential, Microsoft’s Principal Group Program Manager for Connectivity Partners, Pete Bernard, told Trusted Reviews that he only needs to “charge it every couple of days or so.”

Having multi-day battery life on a real, full-featured laptop would indeed, as Bernard puts it, be a game-changing innovation. Yet, when you consider how much better Apple’s...

Twelve South’s Mac Candle No. 2 Smells Less Like a...

Twelve South has a new candle in its Inspire line. Called Mac Candle N°2, the candle’s scent profile was developed to help, “clear your mind of clutter and stimulate creativity.” Which may be better than the first generation candle, which was supposed to smell like a new Mac. The Verge noted that last year’s candle got blind sniff test results ranging from “old grass” to “urinal cake,” which makes me wish I had bought one just to see smell for myself. The new candle, though, has a brand new “vessel,” which is quite lovely to look at, and, “strong notes of bergamot, lemon, and tarragon.” At $29.99, it might also help to know that an unspecified portion of the proceeds are going to FIRST, a STEM-oriented charity. In any event, I love Twelve South Mac and iOS accessories, and am...

Pixel 2 reviews — disappointing screens, bad color...

Rene Ritchie, iMore:

I’ve owned almost every Nexus and the original Pixel, but problems with the Pixel 2 display may force me to look elsewhere for my yearly Android fix.

I bought most of Google’s Nexus phones, starting with the Nexus One. I bought the original Pixel. I pre-ordered the Pixel 2 XL right after the event. Now I’m thinking of canceling that order. The reason? It seems like Google chose to ship bad displays on their flagship phones.

Rene follows up with a host of quotes from other reviewers, almost all from traditional Android bloggers. This was really surprising to me. I expected a best-in-class display at this price point.

Read the post, and dig into the other quoted reviews. I’m not sensing Google-bashing here, more disappointment at the screen performance from people who want to love their new Google phone.

Todd Spangler, Variety:

Snap, Snapchat’s parent company, is teaming with NBCUniversal to bring scripted programming — like short-form comedies and dramas — to mobile screens. The companies have established a studio joint venture to produce programming exclusively for the social-messaging and media platform.

And:

The companies have recruited Lauren Anderson, who has served as NBC Entertainment’s senior VP of current programming, to be the JV’s chief content officer. “Lauren was a great get for us,” said Mills, who has worked with Anderson on the NBC shows created for Snapchat. “She has tremendous experience, and instantly got what we were going for.”

Yet another twist in the unfolding story of what we’ll be watching in the future and who will hold the puppet strings. This is an industry in the midst of disruption. At some point, the models will settle down and we’ll see who is making money, long term, determine who survives, prospers.

Rumor: iPhone X component suppliers report improved...

The supply stream for the iPhone X may be where it needs to be.

Per sources close to the story, yield rates for some iPhone X have improved and become more stable, allowing for shipments of the upcoming smartphone to grow substantially after October.

The sources also reported that yield rates for key parts such as 3D sensing modules have improved as well.

The first batch of iPhone X handsets have already shipped out from Foxconn Electronics’ site in Zhengzhou (Henan, China), said the sources. With production yield rates for certain key components such as 3D sensing modules improving, shipments of the device have increased gradually and will meet Apple’s demand ahead of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, the sources indicated.

It’s also been reported that analog IC vendors have stated that chip deliveries for the iPhone X have been on schedule up to now, with orders fulfilled on time for the device in the third quarter. The same sources claimed...

Would you use a 15-inch iPad Pro?

Microsoft surprised almost everyone when it debuted new Surface devices yesterday (the rumor mill pegged 2018 as the time frame for a new update). The new models are more powerful, and there’s now a 15-inch Surface available.

Which makes me wonder: is there a market for a 15-inch iPad Pro? After all, Apple promotes the tablet as a potential laptop replacement (at least for some folks). And iOS 11 introduced some iPad Pro-targeted features such as true multitasking, a Files app, drag ’n drop, and more. All of these features are designed to enhance productivity.

Some folks find the 12.9-inch iPad Pro too unwieldly for use as a tablet. I don’t. Since I’m using my supersized tablet in lieu of a Mac laptop when I occasionally travel these days, an even bigger model sounds …. intriguing. 

I’d at least consider a 15-inch iPad Pro. Would...

Apple is granted a patent for ‘interface scanning...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,792,013) for “interface scanning for disabled users.” It involves improved input devices and methods for physically-impaired users. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that various types of input devices, such as keyboards, mice, track pads, and touch screens, have been developed to enable a user to interact with a computing device. While these traditional input devices provide users with a quick and intuitive way to interact with a computing device, they all require a significant amount of movement by the user. 

This presents a problem for physically-impaired users that lack the fine motor skills required to operate such input devices. For example, some physically-impaired users are unable to move a finger across the surface of a touch screen device and thus, cannot operate a touch-sensitive device, such as a tablet computer. Similar problems can arise with the use of a keyboard or mouse. Apple wants to change this.

How to browse without being tracked with macOS High...

With macOS High Sierra, you can browse the web without being tracked thanks to the new version of the Safari web browser, which uses WebKit, a layout engine software component for rendering web pages in web browsers.

One of WebKit’s features is Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP), which uses machine learning to identify and limit any tracking behavior in the Safari browser. Tracking can include third-party cookies and identification puts a 24-hour time limit on that behavior. You can turn it off or on this way:

  • In Safari, go to Safari > Preferences.
  • Click on the Privacy icon at the top of the window.
  • In the "Website tracking" section, you can click (or not) the option to "Ask websites not to track me." 
  • Check the boxes if you want these features implemented.
  • Close the preferences window.

If you can get around the whole using Windows thing, Surface Book 2 does have some impressive specs on paper…

Bear enables text editing, notes on any device from...

Being a tech blogger can be an expensive habit. You write about something, try it out, and the next thing you know you’re either buying a piece of hardware or installing an app. Yesterday’s AWT News Update included a little piece about a note-taking app named Bear from developer Shiny Frog that had been updated to include an Apple Watch app. The next thing I knew, I had installed it on my iPhone, iPad Pro, Macs and Apple Watch. 

The app is free to try, but to enable such important features as iCloud syncing, themes, and exporting files in certain formats there is a monthly ($1.49) or annual ($14.99) subscription fee paid through an in-app purchase. The monthly subscription includes a free one-week trial, while the annual subscription gives you a month to try out the features of Bear.

Now, what the heck do I need another writing tool for? Up until last week, I had used a competing app that has an annual subscription fee of $39.99. That app...

Microsoft today introduced the Surface Book 2, the second generation of its high-end notebook and tablet hybrid.

The new Surface Book 2 is equipped with Intel's latest eighth-generation Core processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 17 hours of battery life based on video playback.

Microsoft says those tech specs make the Surface Book 2 up to five times more powerful than the original Surface Book, and twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro, but it didn't specify which configurations.

Microsoft's comparisons to its primary competitor didn't end there. On its website, it said the Surface Book 2 has 70 percent more battery life than the latest MacBook Pro, which lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge.

3D Printed Moon Light Lamp Looks Like the Moon

I’m newly obsessed with the Moon Light. It’s a 3D printed lamp that looks like the Moon when it’s lit up. Interestingly, it doesn’t look much like the Moon when it’s not lit. There are tons of videos on YouTube from folks, and those videos look pretty much like the company’s promotion pics. It has a warm light and cool light mode, and you can the light and intensity with a touch. It recharges via a USB port, too. It comes in multiple sizes, with the smallest—3.5-inches—coming with a ceramic hand for a base. The larger sizes, up to 7.3-inches in diameter, come on a wooden base. That largest model is $79.99 on TheApolloBox, but I found it on Amazon for $45.99. The 5.7-inch model is $29.99 on Amazon. It’s...

Two weeks after first unveiling the Pixel 2 at an event in San Francisco, reviews of Google's latest smartphone have now been published online. Many of the reviews written on the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are positive, with multiple articles referring to the smartphones as the best Android devices on the market, as well as legitimate competitors to Apple's iPhone series. The only slight negatives appear to surround Google's decision to aim for functional, more iterative updates over flashier feature additions.

Like most reviews posted today, The Verge was more impressed by the design and look of the Pixel 2 XL than the smaller Pixel 2, calling the latter phone "humdrum" with "big, chunky bezels" that don't compare favorably to the XL's smaller bezels and larger 6-inch screen....

Gartner predicts iPhone X will boost smartphone...

Gartner is forecasting that worldwide smartphone sales will return to growth in 2018, with the iPhone X a key factor in the U.S., China and Europe.

Mobile phone sales are expected to return to year-over-year growth in 2018, with shipments totaling 1.9 billion units. Smartphones will represent 86 percent of total mobile phone shipments in 2018, up 6 percent from 2017.

We expect Apple’s iPhone X to be the sales driver in North America, China and Western Europe, despite its high price. “Given the late November availability of the iPhone X, we expect the iPhone’s replacement cycle to flow more strongly into 2018,” said Roberta Cozza, research director at Gartner …

Reuters: U.S. buyers favor iPhone 7 over 8

Reuters:

Apple Inc’s older iPhone 7 models are outselling the recently launched iPhone 8 ahead of the early November debut of the premium iPhone X, broker KeyBanc Capital Markets said, citing carrier store surveys.

Traditionally, new editions of the iPhone have sold quickly as fans queue for the latest upgrade, but early surveys have added to chatter that the iPhone 8 is not proving as popular as its predecessors.

  1. Not clear if this is true. These are not Apple’s numbers.
  2. If true, not clear if the motivation is demand for the iPhone X dimming demand for the iPhone 8, or a statement about the relative perceived values of the iPhone 7 vs iPhone 8.

No matter, this is the first time Apple has created this type of choice for the iPhone consumer, pitching a next generation product at the same time (give or take a month) as a new product that extends an existing line.

If you own a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display released in Mid 2012 or Early 2013, and your notebook qualifies for battery service, the repair should be free if you are willing to wait for around one month.

To check if your MacBook Pro battery needs service:

Click on the Apple logo in the menu bar. Then, click on About This Mac > System Report > Power. In the Health Information section, the condition should say “Service Battery.”

Rhino Camera Gear introduces ROV, a $229 compact...

The iPhone has long been well-regarded for its photographic capabilities, but as of late it’s becoming quite the outstanding tool for videographers as well. For example, with the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X, Apple has stepped up the device’s video feature set, adding both 24 and 60 frames per second options for 4K video capture.

But when it comes to capturing rich and dynamic video content, the iPhone hardware is only half of the equation. Apple devices, and smartphones in general, are benefited by a wide variety of add-on hardware, such as lenses, tripod mounts, filters and more. These tools can help iPhone videographers take their productions to the next level.

With this in mind, Seattle, WA-based Rhino Camera Gear, creators of the popular Rhino Slider for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, have built the ROV — a compact slider specifically with the iPhone in mind. Slider movement produces a...

I think I broke my Facebook

Cliff Kuang, FastCoDesign:

I systematically unfollowed every single person and organization in my network except the actual news outlets. That promptly turned my sprawling social network of friends, frenemies, and strangers into a mere news reader plugged into just a half-dozen publications. Problem solved! No more updates about people’s lives.

And:

There’s a follow-on effect that I didn’t realize either: If you unfollow people on Facebook, you drop out of their Facebook feed as well. So now, whenever I have something I really want to share–a new job, or the final draft of the book I’ve been writing for years–I’m met with crickets. I’m stranded on the digital equivalent of a deserted island.

And:

There’s no obvious way to get off this island. I could manually re-follow everyone I unfollowed. But even if I do that, I have no idea if Facebook automatically makes them follow me. For all intents and purposes, my Facebook is ruined.

And:

With the latest iPad Pro tablets, according to the company, when a user writes on the screen using the Apple Pencil, the screen begins to scan for input at a rate of 240Hz, or cycles per second. This is twice the peak refresh rate of the display (which is 120Hz).

Bent flexible displays may be bent to form front side displays and edge displays. Edge displays may be separated from front side displays or from other edge displays using patterned housing members, printed or painted masks, or by selectively activating and inactivating display pixels associated with the flexible display.

Companies were evaluated based on their transparency, commitment, performance and advocacy efforts in three critical areas: reduction of greenhouse gases through renewable energy; use of recycled materials; and elimination of hazardous chemicals.  

"Tech companies claim to be at the forefront of innovation, but their supply chains are stuck in the Industrial Age. We know they can change. Rather than fueling climate change, IT companies need to show the way forward, just like Google and Apple have done with data centers run on renewables," says Gary Cook, senior IT campaigner at Greenpeace USA.

Now the same publication says that chip vendors "were not aware" of any production delays or shipment cutbacks. The same reports say chip deliveries for the iPhone X have been on schedule. On the whole, chip orders for new iPhone devices will grow through the fourth quarter of 2017, and will begin to slow down in the first quarter of the following year, claims DigiTimes.

Apple has apparently nixed Beddit.

Beddit, the sleep monitoring system company purchased by Apple earlier this year, has had its product pulled from everywhere except Apple’s own retail stores and website.

The Beddit sleep tracker included a special sensor strip for your mattress that tracked your movement and respiration while you slept. It included a companion iPhone app where your sleep activity was logged.

Assorted readers have noted that the Beddit product has been “sold out” for more than a week, which stands as a fairly reliable sign that Apple may be killing off the product. Were Beddit’s products still being manufactured, Apple’s web store would have offered estimated shipping dates.

Apple is thought to be incorporating some form of sleep tracking through its own products. It’s unknown as to what specific products this could find its way into.

Apple confirms fix against “KRACK Attack” WPA-2...

Following the recent “KRACK Attack” Wi-Fi WPA-2 exploit, Apple has cited that it has addressed the issue in its macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS betas, but has yet to officially state as to whether a patch is en route for its AirPort series of routers.

Sources within the company have stated that the patch to remove hardware susceptibility was included in a “previous” beta of the current range of operating systems, indicating a release before Monday’s batch.

Given that the most recent firmware update for the AirPort routers was released in December of 2016, it’s presently unknown as to whether Apple would release a patch for the KRACK exploit for its AirPort routers.

The KRACK exploit itself takes advantage of a four-way handshake between a router and a connecting device to establish the encryption key. Properly executed, the third step can be compromised, resulting in the re-use of an encryption key —or in some cases in Android and Linux, the establishment of...

Kanex’s MultiSync Premium Slim is like a Magic...

Hey, Apple, I’m awaiting a Magic Keyboard with backlighting and a Touch Bar for use with my iMac. While I’m waiting, the Kanex MultiSync Premium Slim Keyboard for Mac & iOS will do, at least for the backlighting part.

The $79.95 keyboard’s MultiSync technology allows the Slim Keyboard to be shared among four (yes, four!) macOS and iOS devices. It uses a micro USB plug for juicing up, though I wish it implemented Apple’s Lightning port. After charging, you pair your devices and start toggling with one-touch switching. Everything is done wirelessly via Bluetooth 3.0, so no installation or drivers are needed.

The micro USB charging port is located on the back of the keyboard. The rear is also home to a physical toggle switch for turning the keyboard power off and on. 

The MultiSync Premium Slim Keyboard sports all of the familiar Mac keys and shortcuts, allowing you to adjust screen...

How to stop auto-play in macOS High Sierra’s Safari

With macOS High Sierra, Safari now stops auto-play for video with sound, so you can browse the web without annoying audio “pop-ups.” When you’re ready to watch, click the play button. 

You can customize your settings for specific websites — so articles always open in Reader, pages are zoomed in, and more. Control-click the URL, then choose Settings for This Website.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

iPhone X Parts Suppliers Reportedly on Schedule to...

Yield rates for some iPhone X components have improved and become more stable, allowing for shipments of the upcoming smartphone to grow substantially after October, according to sources from Apple's supply chain.

Yesterday it was reported that Apple manufacturer Foxconn has started shipping its first iPhone X units from its main plant in Zhengzhou, China. The same sources are now reporting improved production yield rates for key parts such as the 3D sensing modules, signaling the first positive indicator from suppliers previously struggling to meet Apple's demand.

The first batch of iPhone X devices has already been shipped out from Foxconn Electronics' site in Zhengzhou (Henan, China), said the sources. With production yield rates for certain key components such as 3D sensing modules improving, shipments of the device have increased gradually and will meet Apple's demand...
