The Belkin MIXIT Lightning to USB Keychain

I usually don't get very excited about reviewing charging cables, but I made an exception for Belkin's MIXIT Lightning to USB Keychain (available for as little as $22.47 through Amazon -- affiliate link). This durable Lightning to USB cable is now on my crowded keychain and has come in handy more than once, and I think Apple World Today readers will like it, too!

The design of the MIXIT Lightning to USB Keychain is brilliant -- a durable and lightweight aluminum casing connected to a keychain ring holds a pivoting 3-inch (7.62 cm) Lightning to USB cable. When the cable is parallel to the aluminum casing, both ends are protected from damage from your keys or other objects in your pockets. 

When you need a cable, just reach into your pocket and grab the keychain, flip to the MIXIT, and swivel the cable 90 degrees. It's a...

When a hostile country regularly lobs missiles into the ocean with the stated objective of transforming a U.S. state into a radioactive cloud, we have a problem. One "oops" and we could suddenly become a 49-state nation again. However, approaches to North Korea largely have been in-the-box thinking: economic sanctions that require China's cooperation; military and assassination options that would trigger retaliation that likely would result in a lot of us glowing at night; and revolution efforts that have little or no chance of succeeding.

Once upon a time, there was a Mac app developed by Apple that made creating beautiful and functional websites easy. Sadly, Apple dropped iWeb in 2011, leaving a lot of customers high and dry without an easy way to create and maintain their websites.

Apple may not open retail stores in India before 2020 even though it’s currently scouting for locations, according to The Economic Times. Why?

Apple wants to open premium retail stores at prime locations either in a mall or high street in New Delhi and Mumbai. The Indian stores will be nearly double than that of its average global store size of 8,500 square feet and will be the biggest single brand electronics store in the country, nearly 7-10 times that of rival Samsung, according to The Economic Times

The desired size of the stores may also be contributing to the delay. 10,000-15,000 square feet of prime...

In their report — as noted by Forbes — the analysts found that there was high demand for the Apple Watch and AirPods.

 Finally, the analysts at the firm conclude that despite their expectations of flat iPhone sales in the June quarter, other Apple products like the Watch and AirPods could make up for the slack in the June quarter. Incidentally, AirPod demand is said to be exceeding supply by six months, according to Raymond James.

Gruber: Speculation regarding the pricing of and...

John Gruber, Daring Fireball:

I created a bit of a stir the other day when I suggested the OLED iPhone “Pro” could start at $1,500.

Let’s take a serious look at this. $1,500 as a starting price is probably way too high. But I think $1,200 is quite likely as the starting price, with the high-end model at $1,300 or $1,400.

And:

You can’t talk about iPhone specs and pricing without considering scale. It’s not enough for Apple to create a phone that can be sold for $649/749/849 with 35 percent profit margins. They have to create a phone that can be sold at those prices, with those margins, and which can be manufactured at scale. And for Apple that scale is massive: anything less than 60–70 million in the first quarter in which it goes on sale is a failure — possibly a catastrophic failure.

In short, new iPhones aren’t defined by what Apple can make for a certain price, but by what Apple can make for a certain price at a certain incredibly high...

Video game publisher, Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Tim Conkling, have made the strategic digital board game, Antihero, available on macOS and Windows systems.

Set against the backdrop of a gas-lit Victorian underworld, players assume the role of a Master Thief, and employ underhanded and ruthless tactics to dominate the city and outwit their opponents. The game includes a story-driven single player campaign and a Skirmish-vs-AI mode to help would-be thieves practice their skullduggery skills before going face to face with online opponents.

Antihero also includes two online game modes. Casual Matches are asynchronous affairs; players can take their time to their next move, and have multiple games running simultaneously. In Live Match, players face their opponents in real-time, with a turn-timer upping the pressure dramatically! Experienced thieves can set up custom “House Rules” to tailor matches to their tastes.

The game includes a story-driven single player campaign and a Skirmish-vs-AI mode to help would-be thieves practice their skulduggery skills before going face to face with online opponents.

Comment: Could the iPhone 8 really cost $1200-1400?

There’s been much speculation about the price of the iPhone 8. There have long been reports that the price may exceed $1000 – and even those who think it won’t quite reach this level do expect it to be very close.

When we wondered whether a thousand dollars might be a psychological barrier, there were mixed views. Fewer than 15% of you said you’d ‘happily’ pay a 4-figure sum. Around 30% of you said you’d reluctantly pay it, and almost half said that was just too much.

But John Gruber has been stirring up speculation that the price may be even higher …

Hey, Imagination, welcome Apple to the neighborhood

Apple is renting a 22,500 square-foot office in St Albans, a “stone’s throw” from Imagination’s headquarters, where it plans to use the office to develop its own graphics technology as it ditches Imagination, reports the Telegraph

This has led to fears that it will poach talent from the British company. And it will certainly increase tensions between the feuding firms.

Imagination disclosed in April a warning from Apple that it would cease to be a customer within two years, ending its royalty payments. However, the Cupertino, California-based company tells Bloomberg that it first issued a warning in 2015.

“We began working with Imagination in 2007 and stopped accepting new...

Federico Viticci and John Voorhees have a podcast called AppStories which I quite like. This particular episode is an interview with David Lawrence, the mastermind behind Rehearsal, an app that is used by top Broadway and Hollywood actors (like Kevin Bacon, Clark Gregg – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Avengers, etc.) to learn their lines.

This is a fascinating listen. One takeaway is that the acting community has settled on iOS as an unofficial standard, enough of one that Rehearsal has never been ported to Android.

Side note, David Lawrence played the Puppetmaster for three seasons on the original Heroes series. Here’s a link to the interview . Enjoy.

Rumor: Next-gen iPhones may not feature inductive...

Apple’s 2017 iPhone models might not feature inductive charging after all.

Per a tweet by Mac guru John Gruber, a tipster has indicated that that the new charging technology “might be late” and not launch until iOS 11.1 is released.

Gruber has likened the delay of wireless charging to the delay of Portrait Mode on the iPhone 7 plus. While Apple demonstrated Portrait Mode when the handset was being unveiled, the feature wasn’t made available to the public until iOS 10.1, a month after the device’s release.

It’s also been rumored that the next-gen iPhone could include a form of “long-range” wireless charging, although recent reports have stated this might be an inductive charging feature. Leaked schematics have hinted that the iPhone 8 will include wireless charging capabilities based on the Qi technology.

CEO Robert Hwang of Wistron, Apple’s primary iPhone manufacturer in India, let it slip last month that the iPhone 8 will include wireless charging,...

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone could also arrive in new...

Apple’s next-gen iPhone handset is now rumored to arrive in four difference colors, including a new reflective “mirror” version that’s never been seen before.

The rumor comes from a tweet posted by Benjamin Geskin, who said the handset will come in four total colors, one of them new. He also posted an iPhone 6s mirror-like case to to offer an idea of what the reflective design might look like.

Since Geskin only identified one color as new, it’s thought that the other colors might be similar to the six different shades currently offered on the iPhone 7 handset.

Currently, the iPhone 7 comes in jet black, black, silver, gold, rose gold, or (Product)Red. The red version launched earlier this year as a special edition, while the jet black shade was new for the iPhone 7 series.

Apple previously offered a space grey model of iPhone, but replaced it with matte black starting with the iPhone 7.

Panolapse is effective time lapse software for macOS

By Aaron Lee

The Panolapse time lapse software for macOS boastsadvanced features to support professional photographers. The program simulates camera motion using software-based perspective-correction. It also packs tools for deflickering, animating panoramas, and auto-exposure.

The deflicker tool enhances smoothness of a video sequence by analyzing pixel-level brightness of each image, and then averaging out the brightness of each frame over time. The Panolapse software has support for animating 360-degrees equi-rectangular panoramic image files, enhancing its movement simulation capabilities.

Panolapse's RAWBlend feature can automatically tune the brightness of a series of images over time to create a smooth gradation. RAWBlend works by analyzing an image's metadata, calculating its light value from the image file's embedded camera settings such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO...

The Silicon Valley giant has planted its flag by renting a 22,500 square-foot office in St Albans, a stone’s throw from Imagination’s headquarters. It plans to use the office to develop its own graphics technology as it ditches Imagination, leading to fears that it will poach the British company’s most talented staff …

In iOS 11, Apple offersa better way to know what apps are users, which will hopefully lead to apps that are better behaved.

Apple’s guidelines for background location services allow for updates of specific needs, such as with navigation or fitness apps. But there’s no realistic way for Apple to know precisely how apps are tracking data, so the company has to rely on outside reports. A couple of academic...

The image the leaker provided is just an iPhone in a third-party reflective case, but it offers some idea of what a purported "mirrored" handset might look like if Apple decided to offer such a design as part of its color options.

Apple’s market share for renting and selling movies on iTunes is down to between 20% and 35% after being over 50% about five years ago, reports The Wall Street Journal, quoting unnamed “people with knowledge of the matter.”

Market share gains were recorded by Comcast and Amazon through its Prime service over the same time period. Across the industry, video on demand movie rental revenue in the U.S.fell 4% to $1.8 billion in 2016, while digital movie purchase sales slowed to a 21% growth rate.

Apple didn’t deny the market share statistics, but told the Journal that it focuses on providing users with content from subscription services like Netflix and HBO through the App Store. The Apple spokeswoman also said that movie rentals and purchases have increased over the last year, hitting their highest level in more than a decade.

TinkerTool 6.2 - Expanded preference settings for OS...

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.

With this design, it is no problem to use TinkerTool in professional networks where users have restricted permissions.

All preference settings changed by TinkerTool can be reset to Apple's defaults, or to the state that existed before using the tool. No dangerous background processes are used for TinkerTool's operation. You may send bug reports here.

Nest Founder 'Wakes Up In Cold Sweats'...

theodp writes: Fast Company's Co.Design reports that Tony Fadell, who founded Nest and was instrumental in the creation of the iPod and iPhone, spoke with a mix of pride and regret about his role in mobile technology's rise to omnipresence. "I wake up in cold sweats every so often thinking, what did we bring to the world?" Fadell said. "Did we really bring a nuclear bomb with information that can -- like we see with fake news -- blow up people's brains and reprogram them? Or did we bring light to people who never had information, who can now be empowered?"
Faddell added that addiction has been designed into our devices, and it's harming the newest generation. "And I know when I take [technology] away from my kids what happens," Fadell explained. "They literally feel like you're tearing a piece of their person away from them-they get emotional about it, very emotional. They go through withdrawal for two to three days." Products like the iPhone, Fadell believes, are more...

Gartner: global device shipments will decline 0.3%...

Worldwide shipments of personal computers (PCs), tablets and smartphones are expected to exceed 2.3 billion units in 2017, a decline of 0.3% from 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. The market is forecast to return to growth in 2018 with a 1.6% increase in shipments, according to the research group.

"Overall, the shipment growth of the device market is steady for the first time in many years," says Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner. "PC shipments are slightly lower while phone shipments are slightly higher — leading to a slight downward revision in shipments from the previous forecast."

PC shipments are on pace to drop 3% in 2017, but the rate of decline is slower than in recent years, alleviated by Windows 10 replacement purchasing. Prices for components such as DRAM memory and SSD hard drives continue to rise, creating headwinds for the global PC market and — to a lesser extent — the smartphone market. The impact of component pricing on PCs is being reduced...

Apple patent filing hints at AirPods with biometric...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,699,546) for “earbuds with biometric sensing” that hints at future AirPods with enhanced capabilities. The invention involves earbuds configured with one or more biometric sensors. 

At least one of the biometric sensors is configured to be pressed up against a portion of the tragus (prominence on the inner side of the external ear, in front of and partly closing the passage to the organs of hearing) for making biometric measurements. 

The housing of the earbud can be symmetric so that the earbud can be worn interchangeably in either a left or a right ear of a user. In such an embodiment, the earbud can include a sensor and circuitry configured to determine and alter operation of the earbud in accordance to which ear the earbud is determined to be positioned within.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that users of portable electronic device (iPhones and iPads) have shown increasing interest in biometric tracking biometric...

AlertSec, a cloud-based encryption company, has announced results of a new cybersecurity survey revealing that laptops, though they usually contain more sensitive and personal data than smartphones, are less frequently encrypted than other mobile devices. 

AlertSec surveyed more than 800 U.S.-based consumers to learn about the current state of laptop versus smartphone and mobile device encryption, as well as to explore the various cybersecurity risks that users may be exposed to and how much they know about their own personal computer security preparedness.

Overall, the survey found that most people don’t have much knowledge about the security tools they are using and can’t even guarantee what sort of security software is installed on their own laptops. In fact, more people could guarantee the use of ad blockers and anti-virus protection software than could guarantee that encryption software designed to protect...

During the day, computer screens look good - they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9 p.m., 10 p.m., or 3 a.m., you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun. It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer.

Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically.

Wireless Charging Accessory Might Not Ship Until...

Apple's upcoming 2017 iPhone lineup is expected to include an inductive wireless charging feature enabled through a standalone charging accessory, and new information shared by Apple blogger John Gruber suggests the accessory might not ship alongside the iPhones in September.

In a tweet shared this evening, Gruber says he's heard that the inductive charging accessory will be sold separately rather than included with the iPhones, a rumor we've heard previously, and that it might be shipped later in the year alongside an iOS 11.1 update.

I’ve heard that inductive charging will (a) be sold separately, and (b) might be late, waiting for iOS 11.1 (a la Portrait mode last year). https://t.co/N65dHMNQIJ

Speculation on the Pricing of and Strategy Behind...

I created a bit of a stir the other day when I suggested the OLED iPhone “Pro” could start at $1,500.

Let’s take a serious look at this. $1,500 as a starting price is probably way too high. But I think $1,200 is quite likely as the starting price, with the high-end model at $1,300 or $1,400.

First, consider the problems Apple faces with any new iPhone. Here are the prices for the iPhone 7:

  • iPhone 7 32 GB: $649
  • iPhone 7 64 GB: $749
  • iPhone 7 256 GB: $849

And 7 Plus:

  • iPhone 7 Plus 32 GB: $769
  • iPhone 7 Plus 64 GB: $869
  • iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB: $969

These prices have remained unchanged ever since the “Plus” era began with the iPhone 6 models in 2014. Apple reports its company-wide profit margin each...

Reality Bytes: A Highflying Tech Entrepreneur...

An anonymous reader shares a WSJ article: Entrepreneur Jia Yueting likes to say that Apple is outdated, China's big technology companies are innovation-killing monopolies and his company, LeEco, is the real industry disrupter. That swagger served Mr. Jia in building an empire that sprawled across seven industries, from online video content to smartphones to electric cars. By having the ambition to take on Apple, Tesla and Netflix all at once, Mr. Jia seemed to embody the boundless promise of the huge China market. And investors responded favorably. Deal makers like HNA Capital and Legend Holdings bought in, as did the city government of tech hub Shenzhen, as well as movie director Zhang Yimou and other celebrities. British sports car maker Aston Martin joined up to develop electric vehicles. The U.S. state of Nevada promised $200 million in incentives for Mr. Jia's electric car venture, Faraday Futures, to build a $1 billion plant there. And LeEco unveiled a $2 billion deal to buy...
