New Apple TV Hardware Reportedly Coming in September

The long-awaited Apple TV refresh originally planned for June is coming this September, according to Buzzfeed, where John Paczkowski is now the managing editor of the site's San Francisco bureau. This time, "it's for real." The device's release is intended to prepare the way for another long-rumored product, an Apple streaming TV service, even though Apple is not yet ready to announce that service. The implication is that the new Apple TV will support it when it does get launched. The device will supposedly be slimmer, have a new touch-pad remote, a faster processor, more internal storage, and an Apple TV App Store. Let's hope this one's true! Check out Buzzfeed for more details.

Report: New Apple TV and SDK due in September, maybe...

One of the things Apple was supposed to announce at WWDC in June was a new version of the Apple TV, the company's now more than three-year-old set-top box. Days before the keynote, though, the New York Times reported that those plans had been postponed at the last minute because "the product was not ready." Today, a report from Buzzfeed, the same outlet that originally reported on the WWDC plans, says that a refined version of the same box will actually be coming out in September alongside Apple's next-generation iPhones and the final version of iOS 9.

The basic hardware sounds pretty much the same as it...

Apple Campus 2 to feature visitor’s centre,...

Silicon Valley Business Journal:

Apple has been criticized for the curvaceous project being closed off and suburban in its orientation (large earthen berms will block the public’s view of the campus from bordering streets). But the new public visitor’s center shows Apple is at least making a concession to the public’s great interest in the Spaceship.

The plans show a super-modern glass-walled structure topped by a carbon-fiber roof with extended eaves, punctuated by large skylights. On the ground floor: A 2,386-square-foot cafe and 10,114-square-foot store “which allows visitors to view and purchase the newest Apple products.” Stairs and elevators take visitors to the roof level, about 23 feet up. There, they’ll be able to behold the multi-billion-dollar campus.

There was never any doub that Apple would have some sort of area for the general public, similar to the present Employee Store. Whether it will be a full blown Apple Retail location where you can buy...

Amazon signs Top Gear’s Clarkson, Hammond, and May...

The Verge:

Former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have signed up for a new motoring show on Amazon Prime, set to air in 2016. The news ends months of speculation about the trio’s future on TV after the BBC refused to renew Clarkson’s contract following a “fracas” during filming this year. The deal is a major coup for Amazon’s streaming service, which lags behind rival Netflix, and although there are no details of how much the firm paid for the trio, a company insider told the London Evening Standard: “We have made a significant investment.”

It’s a three year deal and set for broadcast in 2016. Clarkson is a buffoon but there is no argument that the trio, even for non-car lovers, are a fun team to watch. I’m looking forward to seeing the new format and whether or not this version of the show is better or worse now that the boys will be free from the restraints of the BBC.

Simple Counter is a great tally app for iPhone and...

This week's featured app grew out of the developer's love of board games:

"When I was playing board games with friends," Sweden's Arvid Lunnemark told me, "we usually resorted to using pen and paper to keep score. We all thought that there just had to be an app for this. We were right, but we continued to use pen and paper. Why? Because in the end, pen and paper was simpler to deal with than any of the apps [we found]. It frustrated me that pen and paper could trump an iPhone, and as a result, Simple Counter was born."

An app inspired by gaming. How could I pass on that?

Simple Counter ($1.99, universal) has found a place on my gaming table, but its usefulness extends well beyond game night. The fifteen-year-old developer has made a useful, no-look counter that can be used to tally just about anything. Here's my look at Simple Counter for iPhone.

Opinion: How Apple News can improve so it doesn’t...

I’m not entirely sure why I’ve been rooting for iOS 9’s upcoming Apple News app to succeed. I’ve been a dedicated Reeder user since it debuted in the App Store, quickly dumped alternatives such as Flipboard and Pulse, and don’t need to change my daily news reading routine. But ever since Apple launched Newsstand in 2011, I’ve been waiting for a truly next-generation iOS news reading experience. Apple hasn’t just missed the boat on this; it actually sank the ship it launched, and lost a lot of talented sailors to rival companies that were developing digital book and magazine apps.

Stayin' alive with iFixit and ERI

Whenever a new product appears from Apple or most other major electronics manufacturers, one of the first things that iFixit does is to buy one of the devices and then tear it apart. They don’t do this for the sick thrill of it (well, maybe they do…), but for the purpose of creating detailed repair guides that any of us can use to fix our own devices. Now iFixit is teaming up with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI) to provide hard-to-find parts to keep your favorite Mac or iOS device alive.

ERI is the largest recycler of electronic waste in the world, handling over 250 million pounds of electronic gear every year. The equipment ranges from old, worn-out computers, digital cameras, smartphones, and tablets to items that — for one reason or another — were never even used.

Parts that iFixit sources from ERI will not only be tested, but...

So you can emote with your face while you type with your thumbs, as if you were on either side of a soundproof partition in jail, but the little phone you’re supposed to talk on wasn’t working, but you both had, say, iPod touches to text each other, but you couldn’t just Skype or FaceTime or Snapchat or Facebook Messenger or Hangout or Line or WeChat or whatever the kids are doing these days.

iPhone 6 vs OnePlus 2: Hands-on comparison [Video]

Today we’re comparing Apples to Oranges. Well not really, but instead Apple’s iPhone 6 to OnePlus’s new flagship killer on the block. Question is, does the OnePlus 2 bring enough to the table in order to take on one of the most popular smartphones on the planet?

Apple’s iPhone 6 may be nearly one year old, but that doesn’t mean anything in terms of performance with iOS. On the Android side of things, the OnePlus 2 features a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB of RAM, which makes the iPhone’s dual-core processor and 1GB seem kiddish, but both devices perform with ease.

We have two very different smartphone designs. Apple’s iPhone 6 is made up from all aluminum with a seamless metal and glass design, but like the OnePlus 2 there’s no...

Apple has published a behind-the-scenes look at Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 studio where Apple Music’s streaming radio station is broadcasted … on Snapchat of all places. Apple snatched up the ‘applemusic’ username on Snapchat earlier this summer, and now the company is using the account to promote its subscription music service and Zane Lowe’s radio show with short videos of the DJ broadcasting.

The first Snapchat Story features Apple Music branding over scenes from Apple’s recent iPhone marketing material including a drone-flyover beach clip and the skatepark scene Apple’s “Why iPhone” web page. The clip cuts to Lowe...

Hack: User pulls off ROM hack, runs Mac OS 6.0.1 on...

This is one of the cooler old-school projects out there.

And it seems to have worked.

Apparently, Reddit and imgur user “wowbobwow” was able to get Mac OS 6.0.1 running on an Amiga 500 computer. This was achieved by using an emulator called “A-Max” that allowed Mac ROM chips to be run on the Amiga.

Once this was done, the Amiga was able to execute the Mac code on the computer’s Motorola 68000 processor, which was the same processor shared by the Macs and Amigas of that era.

This doesn’t change the earth or find your car keys, but it is a really cool proof of concept for those of us who remember life under Mac OS 6.0.1 and the...

iPad appears to be a leaky lifeboat from the sinking...

IDC provided data today showing that although Apple's iPad continues to be the market share leader in the tablet market, its share has dropped markedly over the past year and the overall market for tablets is declining. 

This year, Apple shipped 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter (ending June 30), while the number for 2014 was 13.3 million units. That's a decline of 18 percent in one year. Apple's share of the overall tablet space dropped from 27.7 percent in 2014 to 24.5 percent this year. 

Apple's not the only company seeing a drop. Rival Samsung fell from 8.6 million units in 2014 to 7.6 million units this year, with a marketshare drop of one point down to 17% in 2015. So who is gaining share? Lenovo, Huawei and LG Electronics are all seeing growth year over year. Part of the growth might be in the 2-in-1 tablet ("touchscreen laptop") market, which is included in IDC's...

If you thought your NAND Flash-based solid state drive was fast, this will blow you away.

Intel and Micron announced 3D XPoint memory on Tuesday. The project looks into a joint endeavor into non-volatile memory technology the companies claim is the first major breakthrough in the space since the introduction of NAND flash in 1989.

3D XPoint is said to be up to 1,000 times faster than NAND with up to 1,000 times greater endurance, while packing in 10 times the density of conventional DRAM components.

The technology works as a stackable, transistor-less “three-dimensional checkerboard” architecture in which memory cells can be...

Photoshop CS6 Stragglers Out of Luck for Camera Raw...

It's no secret that Adobe left its Creative Suite 6 apps behind when it moved to Creative Cloud and annual software licenses, and if you've been holding out hope for extended support for the old versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, get ready for the bad news. Adobe says Camera Raw 9.1.1 will be the last version released that still offers Photoshop CS6 support. For people using Adobe's apps professionally, this is another reminder that Creative Suite 6 is now a relic and it's time to let it go.

The Mac Observer Spin: Dropping Camera Raw updates for Photoshop CS6 is yet another sign from Adobe they really want everyone to move to Creative Cloud. The fact that they offered CS6 ACR updates for this long is pretty amazing.

Apple’s iPad continues to lead the tablet market, according to new data from IDC, but its marketshare has dropped a few points year-over-year, and the overall market for tablets saw negative growth, based on units shipped globally. That’s according to second quarter 2015 unit shipments and marketshare over the same quarter a year ago, as Apple shipped 10.9 million units versus 13.3 million units during the second quarter of 2014. While the iPad continues to lead in the tablet space, IDC’s data shows Apple’s market share dropping nearly 3 points from 27.7% to 24.5% …Samsung, the number two player in the tablet space, similarly saw...

Apple Music in iOS 9 gets a much-needed redesign

Remember the good old days when the only thing you could do to a song was play it? 

When Apple Music first launched in iOS 8.4 on June 30, the streaming service was bombarded with hidden menus and a wild array of options. In fact, this “menus on menus on menus” design was one of our biggest complaints about Apple Music when it first launched. 

Well, if the iOS 9 public beta is any indication, it looks like Cupertino’s UX design wizards have started to clean up Apple Music’s messy interface. The iOS 9 update gives the Music app a subtle but much-needed makeover so you can spend less time browsing through options and more time actually listening to music.

Hands-on with Maps in iOS 9: Introducing public...

Apple’s native Maps app currently sits in a folder called Junk on the second page of my home screen, where I banished it as soon as it launched close to three years ago. At the time, I lived in San Francisco, but things haven’t changed now that I live in New York, for one huge reason: Maps lacked public transit directions. That’s how I get around the city, and while Maps points you to third-party apps like Embark and Google Maps for subway information, I need an all-in-one solution. Google Maps tells me how to get where I’m going by foot, in a car, or on the train, so it’s my go-to whenever I leave my apartment.

Incredibly, 3D XPoint isn’t just a theoretical product being developed, or an end-goal for a current project. It’s already in mass production and is expected to go on sale in 2016. Intel says the technology will enable a whole host of new applications, ranging from real-time disease tracking to 8K-capable gaming PCs if built into GPUs.

He did it using a product called A-Max that allowed the user to frankenstein Mac ROM chips and hook them up directly to the Amiga. That bit of geekerism then allowed the Amiga to execute Mac code directly on the Motorola 68000 (68K) processor in the Amiga-the same CPU in Macs of that day.
