Apple Fifth Avenue store reportedly to include a...

Apple's store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan will include a "very unique area" for broadcasting its Beats 1 radio station, as part of ongoing renovations, according to MacRumors, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the matter.”

It's possible that Ebro Darden, one of three Beats 1 radio anchors, could broadcast at least some of his shows at the Fifth Avenue store once it reopens, the article adds. Currently, he appears to broadcast from a studio in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. 

The Fifth Avenue Apple retail store in midtown Manhattan is expanding from 32,000 square feet to 77,000 square feet. The store has become iconic and identifiable by a large glass cube that sits on street level. Visitors looking to buy Apple's products descend underground, where they can try out iPhones and iPads, make purchases, and have their products fixed at the Genius...

One developer’s wish list for a new Mac Pro

I can’t speak to what the other five types of users need, but I have a pretty good idea of what I’d want as an iOS developer who uses a Mac every day. Not that anyone in Cupertino is asking me, but if they did I’d say this is my dream Mac.

A very nice article on what’s needed from a developer’s point of view.

Many of us were deeply disappointed when Apple appeared to be exiting the display business last summer.

Not just because we want matching aesthetics and the reassurance you get with an all-Apple setup, but also because there was no obvious third-party replacement. All Apple said at the time was that ‘there are a number of great third-party options available for Mac users,’ but without pointing to anything in particular.

When the company finally did make an official recommendation in the form of the LG UltraFine 4K and 5K monitors, it wasn’t exactly a great one. Not only are the monitors extremely un-Apple-like in their grey plastic cases, but a serious technical fault first identified by us led to the...

Bit City lets you mold a metropolis from your iPhone

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

If the original Tiny Tower was NimbleBit’s homage to the classic SimTower, then the new Bit City is clearly its take on the better-known SimCity. In both cases, the mobile “tribute” offers a significantly streamlined version of the same core premise, and this time around, you’ll gradually build up your city simply by tapping menus and amassing coins.

Apple patent application hints at waterproof next-...

Sometimes it’s the patent applications that offer the most insight.

A recently published patent application from Apple highlights the notion of a future AirPods case that could also serve as a wireless charging dock for the iPhone and Apple Watch.

The patent application depicts the AirPods charging case doubling as a charger for a variety of products, including the Apple Watch, MacBook, iPhone, and iPad.

Apple’s notes within the patent application indicate that the inductive pad could be used to provide “wireless” charging to other devices, as detailed here:

“Such devices can include, for example, portable music players (e.g., MP3 devices and Apple’s iPod devices), portable video players (e.g., portable DVD players), cellular telephones (e.g., smart telephones such as Apple’s iPhone devices), video cameras, digital still cameras, projection systems (e.g., holographic projection systems), gaming systems, PDAs, as well as tablet (e.g., Apple’s iPad...

White issued the following comments in his research note to investment banking for Drexel Hamilton:

Our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3D sensing technology, but still in time for the December holidays. This is not the first time that we’ve heard about a potential delay with a new iPhone; however, our contact was so emphatic about the delay that we are taking this data point more seriously. Since it is only April, this situation could improve. Essentially, our contact believes customers will be able to pre-order the new 5.8-inch iPhone 8 along with the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones in September; however...

For $35 per month, you get local channels for the major broadcast networks, as well as popular cable networks. As with traditional cable, shows are not generally ad-free. The first month is free, and Google will give you a free Chromecast after your first payment. YouTube TV includes six separate accounts, so everyone in the family can have their own cloud DVR library. Interestingly, YouTube TV is primarily mobile-focused, though you can use a Chromecast to watch on your TV. In our informal Twitter poll about TV streaming services, respondents were most interested in YouTube TV over DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and Sling TV.

RetriCAM: a fun iOS camera app with real-time filters

By Aaron Lee

The cameras that comes with the iPhone 7 and, especially, the iPhone 7 Plus are fantastic. And you can spice up your photos even more with Note-Ify Apps' RetriCAM, which also works with the iPad and iPod touch. And it’s free.

The app lets you apply more than 50 different filters in real time when you're taking pics. You can prefer the filters on-screen before you apply any of the effects, which is a handy time-saver.

RetriCAM lets you apply a white or black border to your photo if you wish. Filters are divided into five categories: Chic (which includes a cool Polaroid effect), Silver, Vintage, Deep, and Special. Vintage effects, despite their names (Darwin, Galileo, etc.) don't add what I consider "vintage" effects, but apply colorized touches, which I didn't care for.

The Deep filters allow you to apply even darker color layers, but I...

McAfee: Big Spike In Mac OS Malware In 2016, Mostly...

An anonymous reader quotes Fortune:
Security firm McAfee released a report this week that showed a big jump in 2016 regarding malware hitting the Mac operating system. The McAfee report said there were 460,000 malware instances affecting the Mac OS in the fourth quarter of 2016, an over 700% jump from the previous year during the same quarter. McAfee's new report confirms similar research by other cybersecurity firms in recent years that show an increased prevalence of malware affecting Apple computers. Essentially, as more people buy Apple computers, there are more possibilities for malware to infect the machines. But while an over 700% surge in malware may sound frightening, it should be noted that "the big increase in Mac OS malware was due to adware bundling," the report's authors wrote.

This month the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Samsung that reveals a dramatically reinvented Phablet concept that on paper is one of the most advanced smartphone patent filings that I've seen from the company to date. Either Samsung engineers are dreaming up a storm or Samsung has something very radical in the making. The form factor offers a large retractable display that scrolls back into the base of the device so that it could easily fit a user's pocket or a small purse. In addition, the radical design doesn't use a traditional OLED display but rather some kind of display that requires two projectors to present its content. In one version ...

Gartner: worldwide end-user spending on devices will...

Users of personal computers, ultramobiles (which includes iPads, tablets and Chromebooks) and mobile phones are buying new devices at higher average selling prices (ASPs), resulting in growth in end-user spending in 2017. The Gartner research group estimates that end-user spending will increase by 2% in 2017, to nearly $600 billion in current U.S. dollars. 

Spending on mobile phones will represent 67% of that figure. Gartner estimates that ASPs for computing devices and mobile phones will increase by 2%for two main reasons. First, component price increases are continuing into 2017 (mainly for personal computers but also to some extent for phones), which is resulting in more expensive products. Second, users' interest in value and higher quality phones is increasingly overriding their desire for low prices.

"Across the world, the device market is becoming less price-sensitive," says Ranjit Atwal, research director at...

Apple patent involves location-based user services...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9615202) for “determining a significant user location for providing location-based services.” It involves systems, methods, and program products for providing services to a user by an iPhone based on the user's daily routine of movement. 

The Apple smartphone determines whether a location cluster indicates a “significant location” for the user based on one or more hints that indicate an interest of the user in locations in the cluster. The iPhone can perform adaptive clustering to determine a size of area of the significant location based on how multiple locations converge in the location cluster. 

The device can perform various tasks that are location specific. For example, a map application executing on the mobile device can cause the mobile device to display a map. A marker on the map can indicate a current location of the iPhone. Upon receiving a user input selecting the marker, the mobile device can display points of...

  • 172 million Americans (or 54% of the population) have accidentally visited a website that infected their computer with a virus. A lack of awareness of which websites are phishing for their personal information or contain spyware, malware, or other threats leaves users exposed.
  • 70 million Americans (or 22% of the population) wish their devices were protected from online threats such as viruses, phishing, and malware. Other users are either unaware that such threats exist, or don't know how to conduct safe searches, blacklist or whitelist domains, or filter content.

Jay-Z quietly removes catalog from Apple Music and...

Both Spotify and Apple Music users today have noticed that albums from hip-hop artist Jay-Z, who happens to be owner of competing music streaming service Tidal, have been removed from the services.

It appears that most of the artist’s original albums have been removed while some content where he is a featured artist or collaborator, and perhaps not the sole owner of the content, remains available for streaming. Tidal representatives have not officially announced the move, but Spotify’s support team is confirming the removal to users of the service on social media (via MacRumors).

Shawn Carter, known professionally as rapper Jay Z, appears to have removed his entire solo album collection from Apple Music overnight. Now, when searching for "Jay Z" on Apple Music, only songs in which he collaborated with other artists are available to stream on the service in the United States and elsewhere.

Jay Z co-owns Tidal, a rival streaming music service, so his decision to remove his discography from Apple Music could be for competitive reasons. Kanye West, another stakeholder in Tidal, also implied that there might be some animosity between Apple and Jay Z in a series of tweets last year.

Jay Z's albums appear to have been removed from Spotify recently as well, so his decision might be unrelated to any potential feud with Apple. Spotify on Twitter today...

Apple, ‘Saturday Night Live’ teaming up for ad spots

Apple has made a deal with NBC that will see Saturday Night Live creating humorous commercial content that will air during commercial breaks on the show, reports Variety

The comedy show is teaming up with brands like Verizon and Apple to create special content to make the show both more appealing to advertisers and more compelling to watch live, the article adds. During the April 8 and April 15t broadcast of Saturday Night Live will see a spot for Verizon written by “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost and featuring cast member Kenan Thompson.

Think of Clips, Apple's new, free app that allows iPhone and iPad users to create “expressive videos,” as “iMovie Lite.” It lets you combine video clips, photos and music into videos to share through the Messages app, or on Instagram, Facebook and other social networks.

Clips is easy to use — once you get the hang of it, as menu layouts are a bit confusing at first. And the pretty-but-unhelpful introductory video is more like an ad than a tutorial. Once you open Clips, you’re presented with interface with an empty timeline at the bottom of the screen.

You touch and hold the Record button to … well, record. You can record video, or snap a still frame and then zoom in for a closer look. To get started touch and hold the Record button. 

In my first several experiments with Clips, it seemed you had to keep holding down the Record button to record or even import a video. Eventually, I discovered...

Jason Koebler, reporting for Motherboard: Apple has taken new and extreme measures to make the iPhone unrepairable. The company is now using software locks to prevent independent repair of specific parts of the phone. Specifically, the home buttons of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are not user replaceable, raising questions about both the future repairability of Apple products and the future of the thriving independent repair industry. The iPhone 7 home button will only work with the original home button that it was shipped with; if it breaks and needs to be replaced, a new one will only work if it is "recalibrated" in an Apple Store.

The report from Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White (via CNBC), claims that Apple’s expected high-end 5.8-inch model in the new iPhone 8 could be delayed beyond September due to difficulties related to the 3D sensing technology rumored to debut on the device:

An excerpt from White's research note with investment banking firm Drexel Hamilton, obtained by MacRumors:Our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3D sensing technology, but still in time for the December holidays.

A joint study by ad agencies J. Walter Thompson and Mindshare has suggested that Siri is seen as lagging behind other intelligent voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home.

Apple is a voice pioneer, having launched Siri in 2011, but is increasingly seen as a laggard. While it has integrated Siri into wearables (the Apple Watch and AirPod), its challenge is a comparative lack of machine-learning capabilities and user data to make a voice assistant intelligent. Its strategic focus on data privacy and security reflects this.

The study, based on the behaviors and attitudes of more than 1,000 UK smartphone owners, also provided a bunch of insights into who is using voice assistants and how …

Everyone’s favorite cable and Internet provider, Comcast, has announced that it is entering the U.S. cellular carrier market with its new Xfinity Mobile service. Xfinity Mobile will use Verizon’s network and will offer unlimited data, talk, and text for $65 per month by the middle of 2017. Xfinity X1 subscribers with top-tier packages will be able to get service for $45 per month. Signups will be restricted to customers in Comcast’s current service footprint, and initially limited to those with Xfinity broadband service. We had originally attributed the recent wave of unlimited wireless plans to competition from T-Mobile after the FTC prevented its acquisition by AT&T, but insider knowledge of Comcast’s plans could offer an alternative explanation.

That’s troubling news for Apple, which has spent the past two years pushing the iPad as a professional-level platform.

Several tech companies agree to a $5.3 million...

Several tech companies — including Twitter, Yelp, Instagram and Foursquare Labs — have agreed to pay a consolidated $5.3 million to resolve a putative class action pending in California federal court accusing them of violating user privacy through their apps that took advantage of an iOS feature that uploaded details from users' contact lists, reports Law360.

The settlement agreement was filed earlier this week in a San Francisco federal court. Not counting attorney's fees, the settlement will be provided to qualifying claimants, defined as anyone in the U.S. who downloaded and used the apps between 2009 and 2012. In addition to the companies previously mentioned, Kik, Path, Gowalla and Foodspotting are all involved in the settlement.

Interested in building a Hackintosh? Your GPU...

Jeff Benjamin, writing for 9to5Mac:

I’m currently in the process of building a new Hackintosh rig for 2017, so imagine how surprised and happy I was to hear that Nvidia is working on beta drivers for its GPUs with the latest Pascal architecture. Up until today, I had just settled on being relegated to a Radeon RX 480, or a Maxwell-era Nvidia card.

And:

With today’s announcement, the Hackintosh just got exponentially more appealing. Nvidia’s announcement is positive for a variety of reasons: there’s the prospect of using an eGPU setup with a MacBook Pro, along with future prospects of Nvidia cards powering future Mac Pro hardware.

As I’ve mentioned before, if you do decide to build a Hackintosh, start here.

YouTube won’t allow ads until videos hit 10,000 view...

Starting today, we will no longer serve ads on YPP videos until the channel reaches 10k lifetime views. This new threshold gives us enough information to determine the validity of a channel. It also allows us to confirm if a channel is following our community guidelines and advertiser policies. By keeping the threshold to 10k views, we also ensure that there will be minimal impact on our aspiring creators. And, of course, any revenue earned on channels with under 10k views up until today will not be impacted.

Cell phone depreciation takes the smallest bite out...

What is your cell phone worth? We all know how much we paid for our phones, but what is it worth today? Like cars, cell phones depreciate as soon as you buy them.

Depreciation data from tech-buying site Decluttr.com shows that Apple’s iPhone models depreciate at a slower rate than the rest of the competition. The Samsung Galaxy S7 lost 50% of its value after just one month on the market. In comparison, the iPhone 7 only lost 34% in the same time period

Newer iPhone models hold their value better as each version is released. The HTC One M9 lost 65% in value in just the first month of being released, making it the biggest depreciator. In fact, HTC performed the worst out of all brands overall in the Decluttr study.

Western Digital announces My Passport SSD, drive...

This could be interesting.

Hard drive manufacturer Western Digital on Thursday announced its My Passport SSD, its first portable SSD with a built-in USB-C port.

While the USB-C connection does require a bundled USB Type-A adapter, when connected to either USB-C or USB 3.x, it can hit speeds of up to 515 megabytes per second. The drive, unfortunately, is not Thunderbolt 3-compatible.

The drive includes Western Digital’s proprietary backup software as well as a WD Security app that can be used to lock the drive with 256-bit AES encryption. It can, of course, also be reformatted to use with Apple’s Time Machine feature.

Design-wise the drive is said to fit in the palm of the hand, but be engineered to survive drops up to 6.5 feet.

The My Passport SSD will be available in 256 gigabyte, 512 gigabyte, and 1 terabyte models with prices around $100, $200, and $400, respectively. A launch date has yet to be revealed.

Rumor: Next-gen, modular Mac Pro may not be...

As dead sexy as the idea of a revamped Mac Pro might be, it might not see the shelves until 2019.

Current rumors have Apple designing a modular Mac Pro, albeit Apple has stated that it won’t be available in 2017. The rumors point towards a design that might not be available until 2019.

Citing anonymous “people and sources who know their stuff”, OSNews’ Thom Holwerda writes that Apple’s decision “seems to have been made only in recent months” following professional user response to the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the lack of Mac Pro updates.

Holwerda also points out that issues with LG’s UltraFine 5K display pushed Apple to invest in its pro hardware. LG eventually resolved those issues, but a new Apple branded pro display is coming alongside the module Mac Pro according to the company.

Apple is also rumored to be integrating the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil closely with macOS in such a way is a neat idea on its own regardless of the Mac Pro...
