TMO Daily Observations 2016-10-21: iPhone 7 Fire,...

An iPhone 7 in Australia caught on fire in a car, and now the media is comparing the incident to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 debacle. John Martellaro and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet to look at what happened, and to sort out whether or not it’s appropriate to compare this iPhone 7 to the Note 7 fires. They also compare Microsoft Surface sales to the current state of the iPad.

Here’s what you can buy at Apple’s special campus...

Apple is set to reveal new Macs on Thursday at what will likely be the last special event hosted at the company’s 1 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino. Early next year Apple’s giant Campus 2 headquarters will open and include a dedicated theater for these types of events, so the surprise Mac event is one last hurrah for the current Apple HQ.

And even though it may be about to be replaced with something bigger and better, 1 Infinite Loop does have something fairly new of its own: a dedicated Apple Store that reopened last fall. Apple’s campus store has always sold exclusive collectables like T-shirts and pens, and the Jony Ive-designed retail store adds Apple products just like traditional Apple Stores.

The shirt styles and souvenirs offered change regularly,...

Macs End Up Costing 3 Times Less Than Windows PCs...

An anonymous reader shares a report on Yahoo (edited): Last year, Fletcher Previn became a cult figure of sorts in the world of enterprise IT. As IBM's VP of Workplace as a Service, Previn is the guy responsible for turning IBM (the company that invented the PC) into an Apple Mac house. Previn gave a great presentation at last year's Jamf tech conference where he said Macs were less expensive to support than Windows. Only 5% of IBM's Mac employees needed help desk support versus 40% of PC users. At that time, some 30,000 IBM employees were using Macs. Today 90,000 of them are, he said. And IBM ultimately plans to distribute 150,000 to 200,000 Macs to workers, meaning about half of IBM's approximately 370,000 employees will have Macs. Previn's team is responsible for all the company's PCs, not just the Macs. All told IBM's IT department supports about 604,000 laptops between employees and its 100,000+ contractors. Most of them are Windows machines -- 442,000 -- while 90,000 are Macs...

Mac: Satechi Aluminum Wireless Keypad

Satechi’s popular Metallic Series lineup of accessories has a new addition in the form of the company’s Slim Aluminum Wireless Keypad ($40) — a rechargeable Bluetooth keypad designed to expand a user’s existing keyboard when crunching numbers — useful for working on Numbers or Excel spreadsheets, or in accounting applications.

Beats 1 gets a Facebook page

Beats 1 is Apple's free and global Apple Music radio station, and now the station has a new presence on the web -- a dedicated Facebook page

The station is currently highlighting an interview by Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe with Lady Gaga, complete with quotes and short video clips. The page itself isn't yet verified on Facebook, although the verified Apple Music account shared a post from the Beats 1 page.

That Apple Music Facebook page has over 2 million likes at this point, and up until now Apple has marketed Beats 1 on that page. In order to build up viewers for the Beats 1 page, the Apple Music account is now sharing its posts. Beats 1 has a very popular Twitter account, so it was odd that Apple didn't see fit to include the station on Facebook as well up until now.

iPhone 7 cellular performance test: Qualcomm's...

With the iPhone 7, Apple diversified its modem supply for the first time. The company chose Intel and Qualcomm to provide baseband chipsets for two variations on the phone, the Intel version with GSM/WCDMA/LTE and Qualcomm’s with GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE support. Qualcomm’s modem powers the Verizon, Sprint, and SIM unlocked iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. If you have one of those versions, congrats! Your phone is capable of much better cellular reception than the Intel model, according to extensive testing from Cellular Insights.

You can check out the full test results, methodology, hardware details, and analysis here, and it’s definitely worth a read for the more technically minded. The bottom line is that the Intel variant of the iPhone 7 Plus consistently underperforms the Qualcomm version in LTE throughput. Intel’s chipset doesn’t support...

The iPhone 7/7 Plus account for 43% of U.S. iPhone...

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were only available for the final two weeks of the third quarter, but it accounted for 43% of Apple's U.S. iPhone sales during the period, according to a report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP).

"In a quarter with only two weeks of sales, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus grabbed significant share of iPhones sold," Josh Lowitz, CIRP partner and co-founder, told Investor’s Business Daily News. "We attribute this to slow iPhone sales in the weeks leading up to the launch of these two new models, as well as a positive reception for the new 7 and 7 Plus models.”

CIRP said the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus accounted for 43% of total U.S. iPhone sales last quarter, with iPhone 7 at 31% and iPhone 7 Plus at 12%. The lower-cost iPhone SE, in its first full quarter of availability, had a 9% share of iPhone sales in the U.S....

∞ Apple’s TV boss: ‘Television needs to be...

Eddy Cue, speaking at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit (via Business Insider):

“I do think television needs to be reinvented. Today, you live with a glorified VCR,” Cue said. “The problem is the interface.”

“It’s really hard to use [a cable box or satellite TV]. Setting something to record, if you didn’t watch something last night, if you didn’t set it to record, it’s hard to find, it may not be available. There may be some rights issues,” Cue said.

“It’s great to be able to tell your device, ‘I wanna watch the Duke basketball game, I don’t care what channel it’s on.’ I just want to watch the Duke basketball game. Today you got to bring in the TV, go through the guide, find which sports programs or whatever — it’s just hard to do.”

The state of television is in flux. Unlike the music industry, which moved to online purchases and then streaming, the dominant TV business model has yet to emerge. Apple is exploring all sides, trying to find their...

China tallies highest revenue quarter the Apple App...

China has hit an industry record with the highest revenue quarter the Apple App Store has ever seen, according to a report from App Annie, a analytics services and market intelligence company.

“This past quarter was full of game-changing apps and unprecedented growth in revenue for iOS,” Lexi Sydow writes for App Annie. “ China shattered iOS revenue records with the highest reported this quarter to date for any country. China also not only maintained its spot as #1 for Games (which it earned last quarter), it is now the largest market in the world for iOS App Store revenue, earning a record $1.7 billion.”

Now leading the United States by over 15%, China’s growth is projected to climb further by 2020. To get the full report on China’s dominance in the App Store this quarter and other key trends, download the App Annie Index: Market Q3 2016.

As with the other products in Satechi’s Metallic Series, the Slim Aluminum Wireless Keypad has a premium aluminum construction, available in three finishes: gold, silver, and space gray. It’s...

UBS: domestic Chinese smartphone makers impacting...

In a note to clients, UBS analyst Steven Milunovich notes that devices perceived as comparable in quality and functionality to Apple's iPhone are cutting into sales of the iPhone 7 line in China. 

Milunovich notes that the greater China market represents about 25% of Apple’s revenue, much of it at relatively high-margins. However, Apple has been losing market share to domestic Chinese brands like OPPO, Vivo and Huawei. One bright note: the higher-margin iPhone 7 Plus seems to be out-selling the iPhone 7.

Band of thieves swipe $13K in iPhones from busy...

Apple Insider:

As reported by The MetroWest Daily News, police said the Apple Natick Collection outlet was the scene of a speedy burglary on Tuesday perpetrated by a group of seven unidentified individuals. Described as a “pack,” the suspects are believed to be teens or young men and women.


Wearing hoodies, the roving gang can be seen entering the mall at around 7:15 p.m., making a beeline straight for Apple. Once inside, the suspects gathered around display tables at the store’s entrance —iPhones are usually placed prominently on the sales floor to lure in passersby —ripped 19 iPhones from their security tethers and scrambled out. The heist was over in less than a minute.

This is not the first time this has happened. Apple is...

There have been predictions for years that China would eventually be a larger market for Apple than the USA. The weak Chinese economy means that it hasn’t yet happened in hardware, but the latest App Annie data says that it’s already got there on the software side.

The highlight of this report is certainly China overtaking the U.S to become the largest market in the world for iOS App Store revenue — earning over $1.7 billion in Q3 2016. We predicted in Q1 that China’s rapid iOS revenue growth would drive it right past the U.S well before year’s end — China is now leading the U.S by over 15%.

The rapid growth in Chinese spending – a 500% increase in two years – is in line with earlier predictions. The stats also illustrate the...

Sometimes it’s the patent filings that inform you about the next cool thing around the corner.

With just a week before Apple’s October 27th media event, a newly discovered trademark filing has been unearthed online, suggesting a potential name for the OLED panel on the new MacBook Pro. According to information rounded up, a trademark filed by a company called “Presto Apps America LLC” for a device dubbed the “Magic Toolbar” could be Apple’s name for the touch bar panel on its new MacBook Pro line.

The digging unearthed a company known as “Presto Apps”, which was incorporated on January 22nd of this year and a filing for the trademark on February 5th. The cost of the trademark application was furthermore estimated to be around €16,000.

China outpaces U.S. in iOS App Store revenue

The Chinese user base is apparently even more app-crazy than its U.S. counterpart.

According to a new report out this morning from app intelligence firm App Annie, the country earned over $1.7 billion in Q3 2016, which puts it ahead of the U.S. by over 15 percent. The U.S. had been the number one iOS market since 2010.

Today, Chinese consumers spend more than 5 times the amount they were spending compared with just two years prior.

The report also predicts that China will drive the largest absolute revenue growth for any country by 2020.

The estimations are likely accurate – App Annie said at the beginning of the year that if China’s rapid App Store revenue growth continued at the same pace, it would overtake the U.S. by year’s end. This has now occurred.

iPhone 7 Plus Qualcomm LTE Modem Significantly...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mac Rumors: With the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple elected to use LTE modems from two different sources, Qualcomm and Intel. The A1778 and A1784 iPhone models use a GSM-only Intel XMM7360 modem while the A1660 and 1661 iPhone models use a GSM/CDMA-compatible Qualcomm MDM9645M modem. Apple's decision has already caused some disappointment among customers because the GSM-only Intel modem is not compatible with as many carrier networks as the GSM/CDMA Qualcomm modem, and now independent testing conducted by Cellular Insights suggests there are some significant performance differences between the two modems, with the Qualcomm modem outperforming the Intel modem. Using an RS TS7124 RF Shielded Box, two RS CMW500, one RS CMWC controller, and four Vivaldi antennas, Cellular Insights created a setup to simulate LTE performance at different distances from a cellular tower using two iPhone 7 Plus devices, one with an Intel modem and one with a...

A new J.D. Power study published Thursday found that users who pay more for their smartphones report higher satisfaction than those who pay less for their smartphones. The study also found that among ATT and Sprint customers, Samsung phones ranked highest in overall satisfaction, while T-Mobile and Verizon customers preferred Apple iPhones. Jessica Dolcourt via CNET writes about the other conclusions made by the J.D. Power study: - Customers of ATT, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon (full-service carriers) report more satisfaction than customers on Boost Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile (co-contract carriers). - Full-service customers pay an average of $361 for their phones compared with prepaid customers' $137 average. -Customers who pay more for their phones report higher satisfaction. - This is likely because high-cost phones perform better.

Target Passes Walmart As Top US Corporate Installer...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Electrek: Target is the top corporate installer of solar power in the USA with 147MW installed on 300 stores. Walmart is close behind with 140MW, while Ikea has installed solar on 90% of its retail locations. The Solar Energy Institute of America (SEIA) report shows over 1,000MW of solar installed in almost 2,000 unique installations by the largest corporate entities in the country. Additionally these groups have more than doubled their installation volume year on year, with 2015 seeing a total of 130MW, while 2016 is projected to be closer to 280MW. Big box retail locations offer some of the best potential spaces for solar power to be installed -- on top of square, flat structures and in previously built parking lots. The average size of an installation by a company in this group is about 500kW -- 75X the size of an average residential solar installation. The RE100 organization has signed up 81 global corporations (many on the SEIA list)...

Don’t Hold Your Breath for an iPhone Edition

After my link today to Greg Koenig’s excellent explanation for why the new ceramic Apple Watch Edition does not presage the use of a similar material in next year’s iPhone (in short: Apple needs to produce up to one million iPhones per day, and the ceramic process Apple is using for the watch takes way too long to meet that demand), several readers asked if Apple might go the Apple Watch Edition route: make a special ceramic iPhone Edition that sells at a much higher price.

Apple certainly could do this. But I don’t think they would. I’ve often said that the iPhone reminds me of Andy Warhol’s great quote about Coca-Cola and America:

Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Service at Apple, isn't happy with the current state of how people watch TV. He said we currently live with a "glorified VCR," the interface of our current TV is the problem and we need to reinvent it. Cue pointed out a number of other issues he has with today's TV:"It's really hard to use [a cable box or satellite TV]. Setting something to record, if you didn't watch something last night, if you didn't set it to record, it's hard to find, it may not be available. There may be some rights issues," Cue said. "It's great to be able to tell your device, 'I wanna watch the Duke basketball game, I don't care what channel it's on.' I just want to watch the Duke basketball game. Today you got to bring in the TV, go through the guide, find which sports programs or whatever -- it's just hard to do."

Apple Will Likely Let the 2013 Mac Pro Quietly Die

There was a time when Apple was into powerful headless Macs for technical professionals. Those who wanted their own multiple displays and great expandability. Lately, Apple seems to have lost interest in that market and focussed on mobility. There is a smattering of hopeful signs, but John Martellaro thinks the Mac Pro is headed for the annals of Apple history.

Incase's Icon, Pop, and Textured Snap cases ($35-$40) for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the first Incase iPhone cases we've seen since the company was acquired by Incipio last year. All of these cases make the leap from iPhone 6s to these new devices. We received Icon for iPhone 7, Textured Snap for iPhone 7 Plus, and Pop for both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. All three cases have proper button coverage and cover all sides of an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.{/exp:char_limit}

Tech media godfather David Bunnell remembered

On Tuesday, October 18th, technology journalist David Bunnell, who also founded PC Magazine, PC World and Macworld, passed away in his home in Berkeley, California. He was 69 years old.

Bunnell, whose career included working at MITS in Albuquerque, New Mexico, worked alongside Microsoft founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen.

Bunnell attended the University of Nebraska from 1965 to 1969, graduating with a B.A. in history, was active in the anti-Vietnam war movement and was elected president of the Students for a Democratic Society.

He worked as a public school teacher in Southside Chicago from 1969 to 1971, with wife, Linda, who was also a teacher. The couple transferred to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota as teachers.

Over the course of his career, Bunnell...

Microsoft AI Beats Humans at Speech Recognition

Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence and Research Unit earlier this week reported that its speech recognition technology had surpassed the performance of human transcriptionists. The team last month published a paper describing its system's accuracy, said to be superior to that of IBM's famed Watson artificial intelligence. The error rate for humans on the widely used NIST 2000 test set is 5.9 percent for the Switchboard portion of the data, and 11.3 percent for the CallHome portion, the team said.

Automatic Lite: New lower-priced smart car adapter

A few years back, Automatic revolutionized the way that people drive by coming out with a small device that plugged into a car's on-board diagnostics (OBD) port, then linked via Bluetooth to a smartphone for automatic logging of trips, diagnosis of Check Engine Light codes, and other fun and useful functions. Today the company has introduced Automatic Lite, a $79.95 version of the adapter that does away with some of the more expensive, subscription-based functions of its more expensive sibling the Automatic Pro

Automatic Lite works with just about any automobile made in the US since 1996 equipped with the OBD. Plug it in, pair it to your iPhone over Bluetooth, and you're ready to roll. If the Check Engine Light in your car comes on, open the app and you'll find out immediately what's happening. Oh...

Report: iPhone 7 models w/ Qualcomm modem feature...

In this latest iPhone generation, Apple has brought to market two iPhone 7 variants: the GSM/WCDMA/LTE with Intel modem version, and the GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE version with Qualcomm hardware. A new report is highlighting the first performance differences between the iPhone 7 featuring Intel’s modem hardware compared to the iPhone 7 featuring Qualcomm modem hardware.

The report from Cellular Insights finds that iPhone 7’s equipped with Qualcomm’s MDM9645M modem, which powers the (A1660, A1661) Verizon, Sprint, and SIM-free models, features better cellular performance than the (A1778, A1784) Intel version. Not only that, but the Qualcomm version’s ability to take advantage of Ultra HD Voice has been disabled as well according to the report. more…

How switching to Macs is paying off for IBM

Last year, IBM made a bold decision. The company let its employees choose between a Windows PC or a Mac for their own work machines. IBM staffers prefer Macs, so the company bought up 30,000 of them. This year, IBM has 90,000 Macs in use. But Macs are expensive, as we all know, so IBM must be spending a fortune on making the switch…right? Apparently not.

IBM said Wednesday at the Jamf Nation User Conference that it’s actually saving money on each Mac: $273 to $543 per Mac over four years, compared to a Windows PC over the same time period. And no, that’s not because Microsoft is charging more. Fletcher Previn, IBM’s vice president of workplace as a service (yeah, that’s a real title), said Microsoft is giving IBM its best pricing ever. But Macs are still cheaper over their lifetime, and using them results in fewer service calls.

A Sprocket in your pocket: Hands-on with HP's...

Back when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s, taking selfies wasn't done with an iPhone. Instead, we usually had at least one friend who owned a Polaroid camera -- usually the Polaroid Swinger that was popular with teens. There's something really engaging about having a hands-on printed picture that you can keep or give to someone, and that's the idea behind the $129.99 HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer (affiliate link).

You always have your camera with you with the iPhone, and the HP Sprocket can fit easily into another pocket. It's smaller in terms of surface area than the iPhone Plus models (4.53 x 2.95 inches) and .87 inches thick. Weighing in at just 6.5 ounces with 10 sheets of paper...
