Apple Pay already accounting for one percent of all...

A study by research firm ITG suggest that Apple Pay -- introduced only last month -- is already accounting for one percent of all digital payments. The firm also noted that those using Apple Pay increased spending using mobile payments, and tended to use the technology frequently -- resulting in a jump in sales at top merchants that accepted Apple Pay, such as Walgreens, Whole Foods and McDonald's. Each of the three retailers grabbed double-digit shares of the Apple Pay pie....

Which Stars Will Shine Brightest in Apple's...


The end of the year is a natural time to look back -- and then forward to the year to come. Apple started 2014 slowly but more than made up for it in the long haul, introducing the Apple Watch, Apple Pay, Mac OS X Yosemite, iOS 8, an iPad Air 2 with a super-fast processor, the massively selling iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus, and a luscious iMac with a 5K Retina screen, which, it turns out, is priced less than some 4K monitors. Gushing adjectives aside, what is truly interesting or groundbreaking? What is going to be meaningful in 2015 and beyond?

A new report from ITG has revealed that Apple Pay was responsible for 1% of the total digital payment dollars spent in November. The study also found that 60% of new Apple Pay customers used the service multiple times throughout the month, while competing services like PayPal see only 20% of customers do the same.

Additionally, the research found that shoppers who took advantage of Apple Pay used the service for around 5.3% of their future credit card transactions, accounting for about 2.3% of the total dollars spent on their credit cards.

On average, Apple Pay users used the NFC-powered payment system 1.4 times each week. At businesses where they had previously used Apple Pay, 66% of...

The Open Invention Network, or OIN, is waging a global campaign to keep Linux out of harm's way in patent litigation. Its efforts have resulted in more than 1,000 companies joining forces to become the largest defense patent management organization in history. The Open Invention Network was created in 2005 as a white hat organization to protect Linux from license assaults.

Hands On: Airmail 2 (OS X)

Staying on top of emails, especially when there are multiple accounts involved, is unpleasant. Of the many mail clients out there (such as Mail, included with OS X), each tries to offer users its own spin on staying ahead of the curve. Airmail 2.0, released earlier this year, provides a client designed for Yosemite, supporting iCloud, MS Exchange, Gmail, Google Apps, IMAP, POP 3, and more. We got a hold of Airmail 2.0 (which we will simply refer to as "Airmail" going forward) to take a look for ourselves, and see if this email client stands out from the crowd....

What's the most sought after wearable tech device? That would be the Apple Watch-a device that isn't even scheduled to ship until some time next spring. Apple's unavailable smartwatch beat out Google, Samsung, and Fitbit as the wearable device people most want to buy, according to a study by Ipsos MediaCT.

The Mac Observer Spin: Polls like this are great news for Apple and horrible for their competitors because it shows consumers are more interested in buying a wearable device that has even shipped than products that are already on the market.

Tylt's Energi Sliding Power Case ($100) is the first battery case we've seen for iPhone 6, though we have seen a previous version of Energi before, for iPhone 5. Energi comes with a simple standalone case, which can then be inserted in a larger 3200 mAh battery sleeve with a built-in Lightning connector for charging on the go — the two pieces work together as a bigger, thicker case. While the design here is similar to the previous Energi case, the battery now has a higher capacity, and the inner case offers more protection than before. The sleep/wake buttons and volume controls are now covered, as are the top and bottom of the phone. A micro-USB cable is included for charging the battery. We'll have a full review shortly.{/exp:char_limit}

GIFT GUIDE 2014 – The TrackR bravo

Have you ever said “I wish there was a way to call my keys.” I used to say it all the time while scrambling through my couch cushions looking for my car keys (usually making me late to get somewhere.)

Enter the Bluetooth tracking tag. Introduced in 2009, these small Bluetooth ‘fobs’ can be attached to anything from keyrings, to bags, to kids. Once paired with your smartphone you can find them using the Bluetooth feature on your smartphone via an app. They’re undeniably handy.

My favorite tag – in an overcrowded market – is The TrackR bravo ($29, pre-order).

[I've been testing a pre-production of The TrackR Bravo design and it has the potential to be the best Bluetooth tracker on the market. If you can't wait until Bravo ships in January, keep on reading to find out about TrackR's...

Your website could be doing a lot more harm to the planet than you think. It might seem like a flash on a screen couldn’t cause much damage, but every small feature of your site has a discernible impact on the environment, with more complex features requiring greater resources to maintain. Over time and in great quantities, it adds up. Many factors - from the color palette you choose to where you host your site - can influence your site’s carbon footprint.

Designing more environmentally friendly site for your business lets your customers know you have an ethical stance that reaches beyond the balance sheet. Plus, going green can also make your website more efficient, allowing users to access your content more quickly.

I’ve worked at a lot of different jobs in my life, but there are a few I’d never like to try: picking crops on a farm, working in a chicken processing plant, and working in any kind of factory. The relentless assembly lines and the noise of the machines would be hard to deal with. Even those factories without deafening machines still seem like harsh places to work, if only because of the cadence they impose on employees.

Whatever device you’re reading this article on was built in a factory, most likely in China. In this country, not known for its pleasant working conditions, all the major computer manufacturers have their devices built and assembled. Including Apple.

There wasn’t really a market for hybrid batteries and external flash drives until this year, when Mophie’s Space Pack seemingly came out of nowhere, impressively nestling 16 or 32GB of additional flash storage inside a 1700mAh iPhone 5/5s battery case. But having demonstrated the value of combining these features together, Mophie’s $150 to $180 asking prices were high enough to keep some people away, and the requirement of an iPhone 5 or 5s was similarly somewhat limiting.

Imation is trying something different with its Link Power Drive, a small plastic box with a silver top and white base. There are 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models...

Wouldn’t selection in a complex button layout — such as the keyboard — be much more usable if you could make the cursor move in any direction instantly? Wouldn’t it be awesome if the Apple TV remote control was a smooth clickable trackpad, like the one on the MacBook, that allowed for these behaviors without having to look at a second screen?

Following the airing of a BBC show depicting poor working conditions in the Pegatron factory making iPhones Apple CEO Tim Cook said the situation was misrepresented, and that he's "deeply offended." The report showed factory workers forced into extended shifts and ongoing safety issues.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's a safe bet that Apple will have a new report out soon detailing its ongoing efforts to improve working conditions in China, and hopefully Panorama's "Broken Promises" special will help accelerate the process. It's important that Apple is called to task for poor factory conditions at its suppliers, but it's also important other companies using the same facilities get called out, too.

First Look: Just Mobile TopGum

Just Mobile is billing its TopGum ($80) as "the sophisticated backup battery" for iOS devices. The sleek aluminum 6000 mAh battery features a built-in cable with a Lightning connector attached. TopGum offers dual output charging, as the Lightning cable can recharge devices at 2.4A, while a separate USB port provides 1A charging. The included micro-USB cable can be used to recharge the battery itself or, optionally, to charge devices from the battery. Also included is a small dock for charging the battery — the micro-USB connector can be plugged into the dock so the battery can charge upright while docking on three small pins. Just Mobile claims TopGum can fully charge an iPhone up to three times, and charge an iPad mini up to 75 percent. The battery comes in two colors — a silver and gold that match Apple's device colors.

Although there has been widespread suspicion that North Korea engineered the hack, Johnson said the U.S. is "at this point ... not prepared to officially say who we believe was behind this attack."

The value of Apple Pay in one stat: almost half of...

Apple Pay may be more convenient than carrying around a whole bunch of different cards, and contactless payment is certainly very quick and easy, but it’s the security which is arguably the greatest benefit. Your actual card details are never stored in your phone or on an Apple server, and only a one-time code is sent to the payment terminal. Retailers never see your card details.

Just how important is this? A WSJ/NBC News poll reveals that a full 45% of Americans have been told by a retailer, bank or card company that their card details have been stolen in a data breach.

In the past year alone, major breaches have been reported at Target, J.P. Morgan Chase, Home Depot, K-Mart, SuperValu and others […] 

Some 45% of Americans said they had received such a breach notification letter from a...

Review: MOTA’s new Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus...

I have to give MOTA a pat on the back for what it has achieved with the Battery Case for iPhone 6 Plus, the first such accessory we’ve tested for Apple’s largest iPhone. Despite its generic name, the Battery Case is handsome, well-built, and at $90, a steal relative to the lower-capacity $100 and up versions we’ve seen for the iPhone 5 and 5s. Critically, despite a 4000mAh rechargeable cell inside, it’s also surprisingly easy to hold and pocket, even though it adds thickness to the already-too-large iPhone 6 Plus.

But there are a couple of caveats, too. The case isn’t Apple-licensed, so there’s always the risk that it might have some...

The full BBC documentary on working conditions in iPhone factories has been unofficially uploaded to YouTube. It probably won’t be too long before it gets pulled, so if you want to see it, watch it while you can – we’ve embedded the full video below … 

The program alleged that Pegatron factories were breaking “standards on workers’ hours, ID cards, dormitories, work meetings and juvenile workers.” Workers are filmed sleeping at their workstations, with one worker claiming he hadn’t been allowed a day off in 18 days.

Apple replies to changing prices in Russian...

When in doubt in a fluctuating market, it never hurts to shore up the prices.

Per 9to5Mac, Apple on Friday informed developers that it is has changed the pricing of apps and In-App Purchases in the Russian App Store, following changes to exchange rates. The recent ruble-dollar rates have fluctuated so wildly in recent weeks that Apple has been forced to take the Russian Apple Online Store down completely, as it reviews pricing for its products.

Obviously, it is easier to adjust prices in the App Store so a complete takedown was unnecessary. A 99 cent app now costs 62 Rubles. This means that apps have increased in price by nearly 100% this year in Russia, roughly in line with foreign exchange rate changes. As of right now, the Russian Apple...

If you could kick in a few Kickstarter shekels, it could lead to a really interesting book.

We’ve just been informed that Mac user Scott Stowell is looking to complete a book about design and computers called “Design for People”, which discusses design from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.

The Kickstarter video looks interesting and, at present, the campaign is less than US$6,000 away from meeting its US$50,000 goal.

Take a gander and if you want to check out the larger project, head over to designforpeople.com and see what you think.

McDonald’s Supersizes Sales with Apple’s iBeacon Tech

Fast food giant McDonald's has been testing Apple's iBeacon technology in some of its Columbus, Ohio, locations and that's translating into bigger sales. The four-week program say 18,000 redemptions for products features through iBeacon notifications, and a notable increase in sales, too.

The Mac Observer Spin: McDonald's is an excellent test platform for iBeacon because the company already has an efficient system for tracking sales, so any changes are easy to see. It's also a great example of how effective iBeacon can be for retailers and restaurants hoping to find new ways to boost sales and improve customer service.

In a letter to UK staff, Tim Cook is said to have been “deeply offended” by allegations made in a BBC undercover documentary that Apple had broken promises over the working conditions in Pegatron’s iPhone factories in China, reports the Telegraph.

In an email to around 5,000 staff across the UK, Apple senior vice president of operations Jeff Williams said both himself and the chief executive were “deeply offended by the suggestion that Apple would break a promise to the workers in our supply chain or mislead our customers in any way”.

Multi-functional and elegant designs for everyone

This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases has a focus on versatility. These cases can carry your credit cards, provide a comfortable way to watch movies, and more. Plus, of course, we included a selection of classy cases for everyday use.

Apple

Although this isn't a new case, it's worth a mention—especially as we approach the holidays. Apple's Leather Case (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $45 to $49) is a hard-shell case with a premium leather upgrade. The case features a soft microfiber lining that cushions your iPhone, and sports a raised bezel to prevent scratches to your screen when placed face-down on a flat surface.

Hands On: Snapselect photo management app (OS X)

Apple's professional photo manager, Aperture, had its advantages over its biggest rival, Adobe Lightroom -- and it is a shame the former been dropped (to be replaced with a new app, Photos for Mac, early next year). One thing Aperture was really good at was adding photos - so much so that we tended to do it over and over. Just not intentionally. One thing it was bad at, by contrast, was helping you find duplicates -- so a big photo library quickly became an unmanageably enormous one. Snapselect intends to fix this for users of Aperture, Lightroom, iPhoto -- and anyone who has tried to handle p...
