Drone fans: FAA registration is back in force

We know that a lot of Apple World Today readers are techies who love drones, so this news will be of importance to you. As of yesterday, legislation was signed by President Trump that reverses an earlier court ruling and brings back the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) registration requirement for UAS -- unmanned aerial systems, AKA drones. 

If you registered a drone during the days when it was previously required, you don't need to register again because this bill reverses what was known as the "John Taylor case". However, if you asked for a refund and asked to be removed from the registration list, you will need to re-register if you received confirmation from the FAA that your request to be removed from the database was honored.

Registration is required for any flying device that weighs over 0.55 pounds (250 grams) and uses a ground-control system with a communications link. This includes RC transmitters or Wi-Fi links such as those used for controlling a...

Review: Optoma NuForce BE2 Wireless In-Ear Headphones

Recently, we reviewed the Optoma NuForce HEM Dynamic IEM and found that although it sounded good, its narrow sound channels didn't hold its ear tips well enough, making it all too possible to end up with ear tips left deep inside your ear canals. This week, we're trying a new headphone from Optoma's NuForce line — the BE2 Wireless.

iPhone X adoption outpaced that of the iPhone 8/8...

Apple hasn't released sales figures for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, or the iPhone 8 Plus, but a new chart shows the most expensive of the three is also the most popular.

Data from analytics firm Mixpanel — as noted by Business Insider — shows that iPhone X adoption outpaced that of its less pricey cousins in late November. iPhone X adoption currently stands at 4.76%, ahead of the iPhone 8 Plus at 3.59% and the iPhone 8 at 2.78%.

Mixpanel's data doesn't show sales figures, but measures people picking up the new iPhones and using apps that are integrated with Mixpanel's software development kit. Collectively, it looks like the three devices are selling well and on track to overtake iPhone 7 Plus adoption over the next few months, according to Business Insider.

Apple has announced the latest award from its $1 billion Advanced Manufacturing Fund. Finisar, a manufacturer of optical communications components, will receive $390 million as part of Apple’s commitment to support innovation and job creation by American manufacturers.

The award will enable Finisar to exponentially increase its R&D spending and high-volume production of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs).

Chamath Palihapitiya is the latest former Facebook executive to call the company out, saying at a recent Stanford appearance: “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works,” and expressing “tremendous guilt” for his participation. Palihapitiya certainly doesn't mince words: “The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works… No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem — this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem.” Palihapitiya, who rose to the position of vice president for user growth at Facebook, appears to have struck a nerve, since the company made the rare move of defending itself, saying “When Chamath was at Facebook we were focused on building new social media experiences and growing Facebook around the world.

By Douglas Walker

Did you know that iPhones (and iPads) have a built-in magnifier? It’s a feature that everyone will find helpful when print is tiny. It is especially useful for those of us with visual impairments. 

I use it all the time for everything from checking the temperature on my thermostat to reading medicine labels and even reviewing menus in a restaurant. Enabling the feature is really easy, too. Here’s how:

  • Open the Settings App.
  • Select General and then Accessibility options.
  • Select Magnifier and switch the toggle on (green).
  • Turn on Auto-Brightness, switching the toggle on (green).

This creates a shortcut for you to use whenever you’d like. Simply tapping the home button three times will now turn your back facing camera into a Magnifier

The upcoming iMac Pro will feature new security hardware in the form of a new custom chip dubbed the T2, serving as a secure enclave for encrypted keys, giving users the ability to lock down their Mac’s boot process and also handling system functions like the camera, audio control, and managing the solid-state hard drive.

Details about the new T2 chip were revealed by Caleb Sasser, cofounder of Panic.

Per Sasser, the T2 chip combines previously discrete functions, such as the system management controller, image signal processor for FaceTime camera, audio control, and SSD control.

Like the MacBook Pro’s T1 chip, the T2 chip features a secure enclave for data such as passwords. Sasser also noted that the hardware featured an encryption engine:

“This new chip means storage encryption keys pass from the secure enclave to the hardware encryption engine in-chip — your key never leaves the chip. And, they it allows for hardware verification of OS, kernel,...

All of these video-related hires are great news for Apple and its customers. My only question is will Apple allow all of these talented people to make great shows or will they interfere to the point where the shows just suck. We’ll see.

Apple’s AiPort firmware puts the whack on KRACK

Apple has updated its updated its existing AirPort devices with firmware updates that patches vulnerabilities to KRACK attacks that allow a malicious hacker to bypass WPA2 encryption on Wi-Fi networks and make a user's data easy to view. 

KRACK (Key Reinstallation AttaCK) can expose information shared on Wi-Fi networks, even over connections “secured” with data encryption and passwords. The vulnerability breaks WPA 2, the strongest and most common form of encryption used to protect data on home and business Wi-Fi networks.

Both firmware versions can be downloaded and installed via Apple's AirPort Utility on Macs or iOS devices. Version 7.7.9 is for 802.11ac hardware; the 7.6.9 version is available for 802.11n devices.

Apple patent allows your media and gaming...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,839,851) for “allowing media and gaming environments to effectively interact and/or affect each other.” Basically, it allows games on an Apple device — Mac, iPhone, or iPad —  to use and share data from your music and photo libraries.

Per the patent, a gaming environment can be affected based on one or more aspects of a media environment. For example, gaming content and/or the gaming experience provided and/or suggested to an individual can be tailored based on his/her musical profile effectively obtained from the media environment associated with the individual. 

Similarly, a media environment can be affected by a gaming environment. By way of example, musical content provided and/or suggested to an individual can be based on his/her gaming profile. 

In addition, an open media-gaming environment can be provided where various media and gaming components can be integrated together. For instance, an individual can...

The iMac Pro features the T2 chip, a bit of Apple...

Caleb Sasser, the co-founder of Panic, which makes macOS and iOS apps, has tweeted that the iMac Pro features some new Apple custom silicon: the T2 chip, which makes it the most secure Mac desktop ever.

It integrates previously discrete components such as the SMC, ISP for the camera, audio control, SSD control, a secure enclave, and a hardware encryption engine.

“This new chip means storage encryption keys pass from the secure enclave to the hardware encryption engine in-chip — your key never leaves the chip.,” Sasser tweets. “And, they it allows for hardware verification of OS, kernel, boot loader, firmware, etc. (This can be disabled…)”

Apple first started using secure enclave chips with the iPhone starting in 2013 with the iPhone 5s. However, this is the first time similar technology is being used on the iMac.

The rumor mill said the pro all-in-one would include an A10...

Fishball 360: An inexpensive way to shoot 360°...

Although I'm not a fan of crowdfunding projects right now (I've got well over $700 invested in two campaigns that may never ship...), I saw one today that caught my attention because it's inexpensive and it has to do with my fascination with 360° spherical VR photography and videography. It has the fun name "Fishball 360" and it's at 107 percent of its funding goal on Indiegogo with 11 days to go.

Unlike many of the VR cameras out there, the Fishball 360 requires no charging, no memory cards, no pairing and no firmware updates. The Fishball 360 clips onto the iPhone 7/7 Plus, 8/8 Plus or iPhone X, and then uses a proprietary system of fisheye lenses and mirrors to create a 360° capture. A free app then lets the user film photos and videos as usual...but with the ability to view them with a VR headset (not included) later.

Review: Shinola Canfield On-Ear Headphones

Writing reviews of consumer electronics can get a bit predictable. Cellphones, TVs, and even headphones from established manufacturers will receive iterative updates and only occasionally manifest as something truly new. Occasionally a lifestyle brand puts their name on a headphone, but you can always tell when their involvement doesn't go any deeper than the logo. Sometimes, however, a company can surprise us. Recently, Detroit-based Shinola — a watch and leather goods manufacturer named after a shoe polish company — released a series of headphones. We got a chance to try their Canfield On-Ear; they're quite good. {/exp:char_limit}
