A new report highlights Apple's involvement with wireless charging protocol specification Qi's organizing body, and claims that Apple's iPhone moves are driven more by marketing needs than by any particular drive for innovation in new products.

Comment: Apple struck exactly the right note with...

While we’ve all been able to follow the construction progress of Apple Park thanks to drone footage, the company kept us waiting a long time before finally revealing two things: what the campus would be called, and when employees would move in.

The name attracted quite a bit of attention, with some feeling that it was perhaps a little tame to describe such a dramatic building – but I think Eli Schiff hit the nail on the head.

With wireless charging rumored to be included in the new iPhone 8 later this year, Reuters has reported new details about the scope of Apple’s focus on wireless charging at the company. Apple already uses inductive wireless charging on the Apple Watch, but Reuters says there are multiple teams at Apple working on the technology.

An iOS app that never runs out of memory. Why is...

Jake Underwood, MacStories, reviewing Moment, an iOS app that takes video, but only keeps either the last 5 or 10 seconds and never runs out of space:

I set my phone up, pressed record, and after a couple of minutes ended the recording. When I opened Photos, the video was there immediately as a clip of the last 5 seconds I recorded.

First, this is a clever idea. It solves a real problem, that of capturing 5 to 10 seconds of video when space on your iPhone is low.

But to me, this raises another issue. Why is this app necessary? Surely Apple understands how frustrating this is. After all, Google built an entire ad campaign around never running out of space when that critical moment comes.

At the very least, why doesn’t the camera app warn you that space is low when it launches? Even better, why not reserve some...

Tim Cook, location, and the image of a corporate HQ

Wendy Lee, San Francisco Chronicle:

Cupertino is so populated by Apple employees that some people have jokingly called it “Appletino.” Later this year, Apple will open a visitor center, cafe and store to the public at Apple Park, which the city estimates could could draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

In addition to the campus, Apple will continue to have engineers at its buildings on Infinite Loop. Chief executive Tim Cook will move his office to Apple Park.

That last bit has been making the rounds. Seems obvious to me. Where else would Tim Cook keep his office?

More from Wendy:

Apple hasn’t revealed the total cost for the project, but Bloomberg estimated in 2013 that it could be near $5 billion. The design will help the company recruit, and also reflects how Apple is always pushing the envelope on technology, said Mina Chow, a senior lecturer at University of Southern California School of Architecture.

With your iPhone locked, ask Siri, “What’s my name?”

This is a bit of a public service announcement. I came across this tweet yesterday:

The poster tells the story of finding someone’s iPhone and discovering that she could see all her information, including her home address, on the lock screen. To read through this yourself, tap the embedded tweet (the one that says “I asked siri what’s my name.”)

Without judging the danger of having your phone number exposed on your lock screen, at the very least, it’s worth knowing if this info...

Deep list of top albums from a specific year

Have a favorite year for music? One year that you know better than all others? Perhaps the year when you first really connected with music, the first year that gives you true nostalgia?

With that year in mind, go to rateyourmusic.com and step through that year’s chart of top albums. No matter how well you know the music of your year, I think you’ll be surprised. And I’d wager you’ll find some highly rated albums you’ve never even heard of.

This is an excellent way to discover new music, especially if you are signed up for a service like Apple Music so you can start listening to these new albums immediately.

To get you started, here’s a link to the top albums of the year 2000. To switch to your year, just edit the URL.

The New York Times headline broadside on Apple...

What the hell was the New York Times thinking with this headline:

How to Decide Which Headphones to Buy (Hint: Not Apple’s AirPods)

If you only saw the headline, which is the case for many people, there’s an obvious conclusion: Apple AirPods are not worth considering, not worth even a look.

From the article itself, here’s Wirecutter’s headphone editor (Wirecutter is owned by the NYT) Lauren Dragan:

Ah, the AirPods. The current working term for those kinds of headphones is “true wireless.” Aside from not having a cord to tangle and being decent at taking phone calls, the AirPods didn’t improve much over the corded EarPods. The sound quality is the same (which is to say, meh, with no bass). Plus the battery life is less than a full day at work, so you had better remember to charge them at lunch time. And this for $130 more than a replacement pair of EarPods? I don’t think they’re fully cooked yet.

Ai-yi-yi.

This whole thing smacks of click-...

Tech Breakthroughs Take a Backseat in Upcoming Apple...

Stephen Nellis, reporting for Reuters: The new iPhone is expected to include new features such as high-resolution displays, wireless charging and 3-D sensors. Rather than representing major breakthroughs, however, most of the innovations have been available in competing phones for several years. Apple's relatively slow adoption of new features both reflects and reinforces the fact smartphone customers are holding onto their phones longer. Timothy Arcuri, an analyst at Cowen & Co, believes upwards of 40 percent of iPhones on the market are more than two years old, a historical high. That is a big reason why investors have driven Apple shares to an all-time high. There is pent-up demand for a new iPhone, even if it does not offer breakthrough technologies. It is not clear whether Apple deliberately held off on packing some of the new features into the current iPhone 7, which has been criticized for a lack of differentiation from its predecessor. Still, the development and roll-...

Drone Diary: A review of the DJI Mavic Pro, an ultra...

I’ve been keeping a watching brief on drones for some time. They had immediate and obvious gadget appeal. I mean, proper drones are both radio-controlled flying vehicles and high-end cameras – what’s not to love?

But decent ones are expensive, and I feared that they might be one of those things I’d find fun for a short time before the novelty wore off. I didn’t want to spend a four-figure sum on something that would soon be relegated to a cupboard.

Then a few family members got together to buy my father a DJI Phantom for his birthday, which gave me some hands-on experience. I was starting to get the itch, but still resisting. After all, what would I actually do with it?

Travel was the only situation I could think of where I might make use of one, but small ones were poor quality and high quality ones weren’t exactly compatible with my handbaggage-only approach to travel. Then along came the DJI Mavic Pro – a folding drone whose spec was virtually identical to...

Patent report: Apple NAS device, Touch ID replacement

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170054774) by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for a “network media device,” which hints at an Apple NAS device/home server, something I’ve long wanted. 

The patent describes a device that pulls multimedia data from one or more sources (e.g., a multimedia website or a multimedia server computer) at a first time, stores it to long-term storage within the device and transmits the stored multimedia data to one or more designated multimedia playback devices at a second time.

In the patent filing, Apple says that, with the increasing capacity and capability of personal computers, as well as improved multimedia interfaces for these computers, it’s become popular to use them as a repository for multimedia content, such as songs, movies, etc. 

Services such as iTunes and the substantially unlimited storage space provided by modern personal computer systems has resulted in an environment where many...

“Spaceship Campus 2” dubbed “Apple Park”, will open...

Apple’s upcoming corporate headquarters, long dubbed “Spaceship Campus 2” (which was awesome), has been renamed “Apple Park” and will open its doors in April, though the migration of more than 12,000 workers will take over six months to complete.

The facility is not yet completed, as constructions of buildings and parklands will continue through the summer, but by April enough will be done to begin hosting employees for work.

The facility, which was designed in collaboration with Foster + Partners, replaces 5 million square feet of asphalt and concrete with grassy fields, along with over 9,000 drought-resistant, California-native trees.

The site will also include more than two miles of walking and running paths, an orchard, meadow and pond within the massive ring. It will also be powered by 100 percent renewable energy, featuring 17 megawatts of rooftop solar, making it one of the largest on-site solar energy installations in the world.

Apple pay currently dominating mobile payments...

Apple Pay might just wind up on top.

A few years ago, when the technology was first introduced, it seemed like a vague idea. Today, according to new survey data released by Boston Retail Partners, Apple Pay is not only booming, it’s the mobile payments standard, surpassing PayPal, which had nearly a decade headstart. This, despite a much smaller market share than Android, and this despite continued ignorance as to the very existence of Apple Pay among consumers.

It may also be good for retailers in the long run.

In spite of a slow start, as of October 2016, Apple Pay transaction activity went up 500 percent over its combined 2015 numbers. While some data suggests Apple Pay interest has slackened since its 2014 launch, this data almost certainly reflects an early surge of interest at the launch of Apple Pay, followed by a maturing, growing base of committed, active users.

As the Boston Retail Partners’ survey indicates, roughly the same percentage of...

Twelve South has released a new model of its BookArc — which allows you to run your setup from the power of your Mac laptop while in closed clamshell mode — that supports the 2016 MacBook Pros. It’s a great product — except that it means you’re unable to use one of the laptop’s most heralded features: the Touch Bar.

To use you slide your laptop into the silicone slot, connect it to an external display, add a full-size keyboard and mouse to create a de facto desktop setup. Unplug the MacBook, and BookArc’s newly designed cable-catch feature keeps your cables from falling to the floor. 

If you don’t mind a lack of access to the Touch Bar (though I do mind), the $49.99 BookArc for 2016 MacBook Pros works well. It holds the laptop vertically vertically, freeing up desk space. Twelve South's stand also matches Apple's aesthetics. The BookArc is made from bead-blasted aluminum...

Apple's New Spaceship Campus Gets a Name, Lifts...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Apple has been building its giant new "spaceship" campus in the company's hometown of Cupertino, California, since December of 2013, and since then fans have paid obsessive attention to the structure. It gets buzzed by drones constantly, and the most popular YouTube videos of the building in progress have amassed well over half-a-million views apiece. The company announced today that the campus will be open to employees starting in April and that the building and environs now have a name: Apple Park. Apple says that moving the 12,000 employees who will work at the campus will take more than six months, and landscaping and construction on some buildings won't be done until the summer. The new campus mostly replaces the university-style Infinite Loop campus Apple has used since 1993, though Apple has said that it will also be keeping the older buildings. The new campus' cost has been estimated at around $5 billion. Apple will...

Rich Content Makes WhatsApp Look a Lot More Like...


Facebook has rolled out a WhatsApp update that could threaten Snapchat's share of the mobile app messaging market. The update allows WhatsApp users to share photos and videos through the app's status area. Moreover, like WhatsApp text messages, content shared through status updates is protected by end-to-end encryption. End-to-end encryption is a key distinction between WhatsApp and its competitors, noted Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT. "That's an important point for people sharing private messages with individuals and groups."

New ransomware program for macOS dubbed ‘Patcher’...

A new file-encrypting ransomware program for macOS is being distributed through BitTorrent websites, and users who fall victim to it won’t be able to recover their files, even if they pay, reports Macworld.

Written in Apple’s Swift programming language and dubbed “Patcher,” OSX/Filecoder.E masquerades as a cracking tool for commercial software like Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Microsoft Office for Mac and is being distributed as a BitTorrent download, the article adds. 

The application is generally poorly coded, ESET researchers said in a blog post. The window has a transparent background, which can be quite distracting or confusing, and it’s impossible to reopen the window if it is closed.

Field Notes Utility Edition

“Utility” features your choice of two often-requested but rarely-available body pages: Engineer Graph or Ledger. Engineer Graph features an 1/8-inch grid with bolder lines each half-inch. It awaits your schematics, assembly drawings, geometry homework, or dungeon maps. The Ledger version, of course, is ultra-handy for mileage logs, parts lists, to-do lists, or any sort of handwritten accounting.

I’ve used these notebooks for years for all of my interviews and notes while on the road. I’d highly recommend them.

iPhone Owners in US Spent $40 Each on Apps in 2016

Zoey Chong, writing for CNET: iPhone users in the US are spending more and more on apps and in-app purchases. Spending climbed to an average of $40 per person last year, according to research released Monday by Sensor Tower. This is up from $35 in 2015. Gaming continued to lead the way, accounting for more than 80 percent of Apple App Store revenue in the US. Spending in that category increased from $25 on average per person in 2015 to $27 last year. This may not be the biggest surprise, given that 2016 witnessed the rise of Pokemon Go, which crossed $1 billion in revenue worldwide last month.

Your LG UltraFine 5K need repair? You’ll go several...

If you have a LG UltraFine 5K display that has shielding issues and want it fixed, be prepared to go several days without an external display. After you contact LG support and enter lots of info, you’ll be emailed a shipping label to return the monitor for repair.

However, that repair will take 7-10 days. This involves a hardware problem in which Wi-Fi routers within two feet of the display may result in signal interference issues. The LG UltraFine 5K Display can be effectively unusable if placed near a router with some kind of radio interference causing the monitor to regularly black out and hang a connected MacBook Pro. 

Apple has delayed shipments for LG UltraFine 5K, a 27-inch model touted as the perfect display for 2016 MacBook Pros, and removed in store pickup options. New orders for the monitor will ship out in five to six weeks.

Apple reportedly co-developed the UltraFine 5K with LG. However,...

Apple’s new spaceship campus gets a name, lifts off...

Apple

Apple has been building its giant new "spaceship" campus in the company's hometown of Cupertino, California, since December of 2013, and since then fans have paid obsessive attention to the structure. It gets buzzed by drones constantly, and the most popular YouTube videos of the building in progress have amassed well over half-a-million views apiece. The company announced today that the campus will be open to employees starting in April and that the building and environs now have a name: Apple Park.

Apple says that moving the 12,000 employees who will work at the campus will take more than six months, and landscaping and construction on some buildings won't be done until the summer. The new campus mostly...

iOS 10 on 79% of active iOS devices

iOS 10 is now installed on 79% of active iOS devices, according to the latest adoption data shared by Apple. Sixteen percent are using iOS 9 and 5% are using an earlier version.

iOS 10.3 is currently in beta testing. The upgrade updates the file structure on an iOS device to the Apple File System (APFS). AFPS is optimized for Flash/SSD storage and features “strong encryption, copy-on-write metadata, space sharing, cloning for files and directories, snapshots, fast directory sizing, atomic safe-save primitives, and improved file system fundamentals.”

iOS 10.3 also includes a new "Find My AirPods" ability, additions to Siri, CarPlay improvements, and some changes to Maps. What’s more, Apple says that by the time iOS 10.3 is available to customers, developers will be able to respond to customer reviews on the Apple App Store.

Instagram has become something of an art form. To avoid cluttering your friends’ feeds, you have to pick the best photo from a day or an event, the one that perfectly encapsulates the experience. Then you artfully edit the image by choosing the perfect filter and tweaking it in advanced options. A sardonic or heartfelt caption rounds out the post, which you then share and wait for the likes to come rolling in. But today, Instagram is changing the game.

You don’t have to share just one photo per post anymore. In an update rolling out for iOS and Android users Wednesday, Instagram is lifting its limitations with multiple images and videos per post—up to 10, to be exact. This is a feature that Instagram actually launched two years ago, but was previously only available to brands.

Apple's new HQ, Apple Park, will open in April

In 2011, Apple CEO Steve Jobs showed the Cupertino City Council plans for his company’s new campus. Six years later, Apple Park is set to open.

Apple employees will begin the process of moving to the new campus in April, and in six months more than 12,000 people will work in Apple Park.

Jobs conceived of the 2.8 million-square-foot building, which evokes a flying saucer with panels of curved glass, and Apple will honor its late founder’s memory with a 1,000-seat auditorium named Steve Jobs Theater. Apple Park sits on 175 acres of land designed to be part nature refuge, part center for collaboration and creativity.

Apple

The campus replaces Hewlett-Packard’s concrete jungle with 9,000 trees, two miles of trails for employees to walk and run on, plus an orchard, meadow, and a pond. Apple claims its new HQ is the world’s largest naturally ventilated building and won’t need heat or air conditioning for nine months of the year. The building has 17 megawatts...

Flexihub software lets you share a Mac’s USB port

Flexihub is new macOS compatible software that lets you use any number of USB devices as you wish. It allows you to share a USB port from your old Mac or other computers and access them on — for instance — your laptop.

Flexihub allows accessing USB or serial devices plugged into network computers listed as nodes. It doesn’t matter where they’re located physically.

Once you insert a device, FlexiHub automatically detects its type and displays it — a phone, a storage device, a camera, etc. Serial devices are marked with a special indicator to differentiate them from USB devices.

You can restrict access to devices connected to your computer via USB or serial ports. Such devices won’t be listed as accessible to other computers, and only authorized users will be able to access them.
