YouTube to launch subscription music service

YouTube plans to introduce a paid music service in March, according to people familiar with the matter, a third attempt by parent company Alphabet Inc. to catch up with rivals Spotify and Apple Inc.

This will be a big thing for YouTube if they can convert a lot of the people that currently use the service for music—and there are a lot of them. I’m not convinced they can make those people pay for a service, but we’ll see. Considering many of the Google Play Music staff were moved to YouTube, it makes sense that they are going to cancel that service.

The future: the Mac and iPad will merge and run...

The always entertaining columnist, John C. Dvorak, writes in a new column dubbed “Apple is Ready to Ditch the Mac” that Apple is, well, ready to ditch the Mac as iOS is poised to replace macOS. However, the Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says he’s missing the big picture.

As he’s said before, Dvorak feels the Mac will be phased out and the whole line will be replaced by iPads. He admits that the Mac “is not dead tomorrow,” though he doesn’t say when we can read the obit. 

A more likely scenario: both the Mac and iPad will “die.” Actually, that’s not the correct term; “transform” is more like it. Just as the iPod (only available now as the iPod touch) transformed like a caterpillar into the iPhone, Apple’s desktop, laptop, and tablet line-ups will evolve into a merged form factor (or factors) that take the best elements of each with a user interface based on the...

Apple Has Ruined Its Podcasts App

Mike Pesca, host of Slate's daily podcast The Gist, writes about the recent interface changes to Apple's Podcasts app (condensed): Up until two months ago, the Apple Podcasts app was the only podcasting app I used. It gave me a nice, workable list of the shows I liked; let me know when those shows were updated; played the shows easily and without glitches; and offered the option of listening in double speed. I knew where everything was, and I thought of its shortcomings not as features the app was lacking but more like things one simply could not do with a podcast. If the Apple Podcast app wasn't great for sharing podcasts via email or text -- and it was not -- I told myself, "That just must be something that's hard for a podcast app to execute." I figured the best a podcasting app could do was to facilitate sharing the feed of a show, rather than the specific episode I was listening to. I never dared dream I could send a specific time within that episode. What sorcery is that? But...

That's still a very good deal, however. While this Easystore drive is part of Western Digital's exclusive line for Best Buy, its equivalents at Amazon and other retailers are currently selling for about $45 more. This discount also undercuts last week's sale price of $150.

This drive comes with USB 3.0, which WD says allows transfer rates of up to 5 gigabits per second. As with other WD drives, it comes with WD Backup (the company's automated backup software) to keep all the files on your PC in more than one place.

Using sysadminctl on macOS

macOS 10.13 brings changes to sysadminctl. You know those dscl scripts we used to use to create users? No longer supposed to be necessary (luckily they do still work). Now you can create a user with a one-liner, and do other forms of user management, such as enabling FileVault for a given user, or managing the guest accounts. However, you can’t do these tasks as root or via sudo. You have to do so with other admin accounts per Apple kbase HT208171 (in fact, this article has been in my queue waiting for that issue to be fixed – but keep in mind I’m not prefacing these with sudo in the below commands). In the below command, we’ll pass the -addUser option and then use -fullName to fill in the displayed name of the user, -password to send a password to the account and -hint so we can get a password hint into that attribute:

Text Replacements, an often overlooked iOS and macOS feature that automatically expands custom text snippets into longer phrases or whole sentences as you’re typing, should no longer be plagued with the widely reported intermittent syncing issues.

As first noted by Daring Fireball’s John Gruber, an Apple spokesperson told him back in September that an update that moves text replacement syncing to CloudKit was scheduled to roll out to iOS 11 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra users in the next month or so.

Brian Stucki, who first explained why Text Replacements didn’t sync reliably between iOS devices and Macs, has now confirmed in an update to his original post that snippet syncing now at long last works reliably across all devices running macOS High Sierra and iOS 11.

3 top reasons people dump Android for iPhone

Jonny Evans, writing for Computerworld, on the top reasons switchers are switching to iPhone, as laid out by Creative Strategies. Though the title might seem click-baity, the logic is thoughtful.

A taste:

Today’s smartphone user may have subscriptions with multiple such services. They are also likely to own multiple devices, and that’s where the problem emerges. In contrast to competitors, Apple’s platforms are far better at syncing passwords, settings, images and other items between all your devices using the same Apple ID. You can even set up a new iPhone just by tapping it with your old one in iOS 11.

That kind of convenience makes it so much easier for consumers rapidly engaging in a multi-device, multiple-service, cross platform digital existence. This sync extends across to Apple’s Macs, of course.

The hidden player spurring a wave of cheap consumer...

Farhad Manjoo, New York Times:

On the surface, the camera doesn’t sound special. Like home internet cameras made by Nest or Netgear, the Wyze device can monitor an area for motion or sound. When it spots something, it begins recording a short clip that it stores online, for access on your phone or your computer.

But the WyzeCam has one groundbreaking feature that no rival can match. It is being sold for such an unbelievably low price — $20 — that it sent me tunneling into the global gadget industry to figure out how Wyze had done it. That, in turn, led to a revelation about the future of all kinds of products, from cameras to clothes.

And:

Nest’s and Netgear’s comparable indoor cameras sell for around $200 each, while Wyze’s device goes for $20 plus shipping if you buy directly from the company’s website.

And, most importantly:

Wyze did not create a home internet camera for a tenth of the price of rivals by skimping on quality. Though the...

Apple patent filing involves ‘detecting activity by...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170347885) for “detecting activity by a wheelchair user.” It’s designed to help such folks keep track of their health and fitness activities using the Apple Watch and its Workout app.

The patent involves technology for collecting motion data of a user device located on an appendage of the user. Among other things it would track the energy expenditure of the user.

As noted in the patent filing, such activities involve repetitive motions of the arms. For example, pushing yourself in a wheelchair, rowing, push-ups and pull-ups, and assembly-line tasks may all involve repetition of a sequence of motions using the hands, arms, and wrists. An Apple Watch may be worn on the hand, wrist, or arm of the person performing the activity. Apple says it may be desirable to track activity by a wheelchair user for health, safety, or productivity reasons. 

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent...

Apple CEO Tim Cook places number five on the ‘Recode...

Apple CEO Tim Cook took the fifth spot in the Recode 100 list, which measures the publication’s choices for “the people in tech, business and media who mattered in 2017.”

Here’s what Recode has to say about Apple’s head honcho: 

Tim Cook is succeeding at an impossible task: Following the greatest-ever product visionary as Apple’s CEO. Yet six years after his mentor Steve Jobs died, Apple is thriving. And Cook is growing into his prominence as one of the business world’s most increasingly vocal good-guy CEOs.

For Apple, 2017 was a return to growth. After sales declines in 2016, Apple has now posted four consecutive quarters of year-over-year revenue gains — and it’s accelerating.

And that doesn’t even include a single iPhone X, the new version of Apple’s most important product, which launched in November and our sister site The Verge calls “easily...

But Apple VP Greg Joswiak has defended it as one of the company’s most impressive technical achievements …

A look at several Case-Mate, Silk cases for the...

By Laura Darnell

I recently had the opportunity to try out several iPhone X cases from Case-Mate and Silk. There are simply too many to critique in detail, but here are my impressions.

The Casemate Opal purse case- great for when I’m going out and wearing a dress without pockets. Not so great for talking on the phone. Awkward to talk while holding a clutch to your head and cumbersome to hold while texting. Holds phone and cards securely.

The Karate Mother of Pearl ($50) securely holds the iPhone X in place. And it’s durable. I dropped my phone with no damage, but the case is super hard to remove.

The temperature changing Casemate Mood ($50) is a little silly, but holds the iPhone X well. Alas, none of these cases allowed me to use an induction charger.

The Silk Pureview ($15) with its “diamond” skin is one of my favorites...

Amazon Prime Video app arrives for tvOS, supports...

You’ve been hankering for it and it’s here.

Months after Apple CEO Tim Cook’s announcement of it back at WWDC in June, the Amazon Prime Video app for the Apple TV is here. The app, which is designed for tvOS, may not show up in a tvOS app store search, but can generally be located by searching for “Amazon” in the tvOS app store, selecting the Amazon Shopping app, and finding the new Prime Video app in the “More by this Developer” section at the bottom of the page.

The app requires a third-generation or later Apple TV device to install and run.

Amazon Prime Video joins a number of other big streaming services, including Netflix and Hulu, that have tvOS apps. Previously, any Amazon Prime Video content could only play on an Apple TV through AirPlay from another device.

This may open the door for Amazon to sell the Apple TV again on its retail website. Amazon hasn’t sold Apple TV since 2015 and recently CEO Jeff Bezos said that the only way Amazon would...

Nikkei's information is in line with previous details shared by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who often has accurate insight into Apple's plans, though there is some variance in size predictions for the three devices.

Hands-On With the New Amazon Prime Video App for...

The long-awaited Amazon Prime Video app for the Apple TV finally debuted today after a wait that spanned six months since it was first teased at WWDC.

Apple's set-top box is one of the last platforms to support the Amazon Prime Video app, which is now available on third, fourth, and fifth-generation Apple TV models. We spent the afternoon checking out the new app for a hands-on look at its feature set.

If you've used the Amazon Prime Video app on an iOS device or on another platform like a console, the interface will be immediately familiar, organized into sections that include...

Apple Issues Security Updates for MacOS, iOS, TvOS,...

Catalin Cimpanu, writing for BleepingComputer: Over the course of the last four days, Apple has released updates to address security issues for several products, such as macOS High Sierra, Safari, watchOS, tvOS, and iOS. The most relevant security update is the one to macOS, as it also permanently fixes the bug that allowed attackers to access macOS root accounts without having to type a password. Apple issued a patch for the bug the next day after it was discovered, but because the patch was delivered as an out-of-band update that did not alter the macOS version number, when users from older macOS versions updated to 10.13.1 (the vulnerable version), the bug was still present. With today's update, the patch for the bug -- now known as "IAmRoot" (CVE-2017-13872) -- has received a permanent fix. All users who upgrade to macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 are safe.

No, Siri, John Travolta is not dead

Uh, someone needs to tell Siri that John Travolta isn’t dead. If you ask Apple’s personal digital assistant Hey Siri, how old is John Travolta,” you’ll be told that “John Travolta died January 3, 2009 at age 54,” as noted by Newsweek.

However, at 63, he’s alive and well. So why is Siri saying he’s deceased? As Newsweek notes, it’s possible that Siri is mixing up Travolta with his son, Jett, who died on January 2, 2009.

With the release of Amazon Prime Video for Apple TV, there’s now one less reason to switch inputs on your TV if you’re looking for something to watch. Prime Video has long been on other set-top boxes and even comes built-in to modern TVs, so it’s great to see Amazon’s catalog of movies and TV shows available to stream directly on Apple TV. For me, there are still two reasons to switch between my Apple TV 4K and the built-in apps on my TV for the best experience…

When Apple unveiled the HomePod this past June at WWDC 2017, I didn’t give it too much of my attention. As a design piece, it looked like something I’d be happy to put in my living room. As a product, I just wasn’t interested. Smart speakers in general have seemed like little more than a novelty to me, and I’ve resisted buying one… until now. Last week I welcomed a Google Home Mini into my life to see if it could change my mind. Here’s what I found…

Review: Ten One Design's new Mountie+ outshines...

A few years ago, accessory manufacturer Ten One Design came out with the Mountie, a small device that clamped onto the side of one device -- Mac, iPad, whatever... -- and allowed users to clamp another device like an iPhone onto the first device. While the idea is great, allowing a MacBook Pro user to use an iPad Pro as a "second screen", the original just didn't have the holding power to really make me feel confident that everything would stay attached. That problem is gone now with the advent of the new Mountie+ (US$34.95).

Mountie+. Photo ©2017 Steven Sande

The new Mountie+ uses a similar design to the old Mountie, with a pair of padded clamps -- one for each device -- and pads for each side that can be swapped out for a nice tight fit. The difference? There are TWO of those clamp sets and as you'd expect, it has much more grip -- a 2.6X...

Tom's Guide today shared its list of "2017 Innovation Award Winners," which of course includes the iPhone X, among other products like the Nintendo Switch, the DJI Spark, and the Amazon Echo.

Apple's iPhone X took the Tom's Guide "Best Overall" award for its Super Retina Display, Face ID, and A11 Bionic chip, and the site's iPhone X writeup includes some interesting commentary from Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of product marketing.

For the iPhone X's Super Retina Display, which incorporates the first-ever OLED panel in an iOS device, Joswiak says Apple had to "do a lot of engineering" to come up with "panels that were better" to address traditional OLED issues like oversaturated colors.

The iPhone X is using its own color management system, a folding panel design that stacks circuits for minimal bezel, and other technology improvements to outshine competing smartphone...

Apple: Learning with Privacy at Scale

Gaining insight into the overall user population is crucial to improving the user experience. The data needed to derive such insights is personal and sensitive, and must be kept private. In addition to privacy concerns, practical deployments of learning systems using this data must also consider resource overhead, computation costs, and communication costs. In this article, we give an overview of a system architecture that combines differential privacy and privacy best practices to learn from a user population.

The company’s new Expression Photo HD XP-15000 Wide-format Printer is billed as a top-notch photo producer, able to print borderless photos as large as 13” x 19”. The device requires six different Claria Photo HD ink cartridges — including new red and gray inks — to produce its wide color gamut, and features a 200-sheet front tray and a 50-sheet rear specialty tray for media like cardstock. Like most newer printers the Expression Photo HD can be used wirelessly, and for more routine document printing the printer offers automatic two-sided printing in a fairly small footprint.

There are two types of differential privacy: central and local. Apple has chosen to use the local setting, which means that data is randomized before being sent from devices, so that its servers never see or receive raw data from users.

When users set up their device, Apple explicitly asks users if they wish to provide usage information on an opt-...

Following the launch of Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV, Apple has increased its Twitter presence with a new account dedicated to all things Apple TV. The shift sees the old @iTunesMovies account rebrand with a new @AppleTV handle, and the first new tweet from the account promotes the Apple TV app and Amazon Prime Video support. You can still find tweets from the original account deep in the timeline while the old handle is now protected so it can’t be reused outside of Apple.

Rumor: work at Catcher hints at upcoming Apple AR...

Adding fuel to the rumors (which are almost certainly true) that Apple is working on an augmented reality (AR) headset, the company’s chassis supplier Catcher Technology has revealed it's working on a product line outside of its usual categories.

Catcher chairman Allen Horng tells DigiTimes that the company will start supplying chassis for a brand new product line outside of its existing work in making casings for smartphones and laptops. Since Apple has been showing interest in developing an AR head-mounted display (HMD), market watchers are speculating that this new product line could be connected with the US-based vendor.

Chances this rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me). 90%. It’s not...

Apple and Amazon Confirm Amazon Prime Video on tvOS...

Following the early morning launch of the long-awaited Amazon Prime Video tvOS app, both Apple and Amazon have now posted press releases about the launch, each confirming a few details about Prime Video on Apple TV.

Firstly, Apple's PR officially confirms that Amazon Prime Video does support Apple's centralized TV app. This means that users can use Siri Universal Search to find Amazon Prime Video content, and add it to their "Up Next" queue of shows and movies. Prime Video content will then appear within the TV app and users can immediately jump into their shows without needing to navigate to the Amazon app itself.

Apple dives to 84th place on Glassdoor’s Best Places...

Apple came in at 84th place on Glassdoor's 2018 Best Places to Work in the U.S. It’s the tech giant’s lowest finish ever.

The workplace review and ratings site lists 100 best places to work in the U.S. with 1,000 or more employees, and 50 small and medium companies to work for with less than 1,000 employees.

I’m not sure why Apple plummeted in the rankings. It’s placement on the previous 10 Glassdoor lists were 36, 25, 22, 35, 34, 10, 20, 22, and 19.

Glassdoor’s annual awards are based on anonymous, voluntary employee input about their workplace over the past year. Ratings are based on a five-point scale, 1.0 being very dissatisfied and 5.0 being very satisfied.

Apple earned a 4.3-star rating out of five during that period, compared to Facebook's leading 4.6-star rating. Glassdoor — which described itself as “the world's most transparent jobs and recruiting...
