The Battery That’s Lasted 176 Years

I’m pretty darned nerdy. I’ve watched my share, your share, and all of your neighbors’ share of the Science Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, Nova, Discovery Channel, and every other sciency-nerdy thing I could get my eyes on. But I’ve never heard of the battery that’s been running for 176 years. Come on, that’s cool! It’s been ringing a bell all that time. Billions of time. We have only a loose idea of how it’s built, and we can’t figure it out without destroying it. Anyway, Sally Page tells us all about it in this marvelous video. Also,

A new report from China Labor Watch, a labor rights watchdog and advocacy organization, says there are are continued workers’ rights violations at factories owned by Pegatron. Pegatron is an electronics manufacturing company that develops mainly computing, communications and consumer electronics to branded vendors, including Apple.

“Working conditions are terrible, and workers are subject to terrible treatment. Currently, Apple’s profits are declining, and the effects of this decline have been passed on to suppliers,” writes China Labor Watch. “ To mitigate the impact, Pegatron has taken some covert measures to exploit workers. This report is based on interviews with Pegatron workers and a comparative study of 2015 copies of paystubs collected in 2015 and 2016. Through our investigation, we have found that Pegatron has taken some surreptitious measures to pass Apple’s...

An anonymous reader writes: The main question when picking a new phone is whether to choose an Android one or an iPhone. A new study coming from Blancco Technology Group sheds some light on which devices are the most reliable, based on reliability. The study entitled State of Mobile Device Performance and Health reveals the device failure rates by operating systems, manufacturers, models and regions, as well as the most common types of performance issues. The report reveals that in Q2 2016, iOS devices had a 58% failure rate, marking the first time that Apple's devices have a lower performance rate compared to Android. It seems that the iPhone 6 had the highest failure rate of 29%, followed by iPhone 6s and iPhone 6S Plus. Android smartphones had an overall failure rate of 35%, an improvement from 44% in Q1 2016. Samsung, Lenovo and LeTV were among the manufacturers with the weakest performance and higher failure rates. Samsung scored 26% in failure rate, while Motorola just 11%....

Overall satisfaction with paid streaming video service is highest among cord stackers—customers who subscribe to a traditional cable/satellite service in addition to streaming video service—according to the J.D. Power 2016 Streaming Video Satisfaction Study.

The inaugural study measures overall satisfaction among customers who have used a subscription- or transaction-based streaming video service within the past six months. The study measures customer satisfaction by examining six key measures (listed in order of importance): performance and reliability; content; cost of service; ease of use; communication; and customer service. Scores for each measure are reflected in an index based on a 1,000-point scale.

The study finds that although the number of customers who cut the cord on pay TV is growing, the majority of streaming video customers still purchase a paid TV service in addition to a streaming video service. Three-fifths (60%) of streaming customers are...

Review: Distil Union Stanley Stand

Distil Union's Stanley is a flexible leather stand for iPhone. Mostly a maker of wallets and wallet iPhone cases, Stanley is a foray into something different for DU. Stanley is a simple stand — a flexible one-piece leather stand which comes in a variety of colors. (The "aqua" stand we received is a nice departure from all the black stands and docks we see regularly.) An iPhone can be docked in portrait or landscape mode, and a small hole in the back of the stand allows a Lightning cable to be passed through for charging. Distil Union also includes a 6' USB extension cable with Stanley. The stand can be folded up into a flatter shape when traveling to take up a small amount of space.{/exp:char_limit}

It has become the backbone of large enterprises, and it is installed in government systems and embedded in devices worldwide.
The Linux operating system started out as an alternative to other platform architectures in use on mainframes and enterprise back-ends. It has grown into a major mainstream computing platform.

Malware Sold To Governments Helped Them Spy on...

One of the world's most evasive digital arms dealers is believed to have been taking advantage of three security vulnerabilities in popular Apple products in its efforts to spy on dissidents and journalists, reports The New York Times. (Editor's note: the link could be paywalled, here's an alternate source). From the report: Investigators discovered that a company called the NSO Group, an Israeli outfit that sells software that invisibly tracks a target's mobile phone, was responsible for the intrusions. The NSO Group's software can read text messages and emails and track calls and contacts. It can even record sounds, collect passwords and trace the whereabouts of the phone user. In response, Apple on Thursday released a patched version of its mobile software, iOS 9.3.5. Users can get the patch through a normal software update.The Washington Post reports that these "zero-day" flaws were previously used by the governments to take over victims' phones by tricking them into clicking...

If you’re a fan of Elton John, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, or Calvin Harris—and you don’t already have a subscription to Apple Music—you might want to sign up for your three-month free trial right around now. These artists will perform for the Apple Music Festival, which this year will require an Apple Music subscription.

Social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat have become the best means of communication for many people, and now it seems that Apple wants to cash in on that trend. According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is looking to "capitalize on the popularity of social networks" by developing a video-sharing app for iPhone and iPad. The new app, which is reportedly in development for 2017, would let users quickly take, edit, and share video by using one-handed controls on their mobile device.

The video app sounds a lot like Snapchat in terms of features: users can record a video and then apply filters to it, doodle, or place text over it, and then send it to friends via the contact list or existing social networks like Twitter. According to anonymous sources...

Plagued by crashing apps, Wi-Fi connectivity and other performance issues, the iOS failure rate more than doubled to 58% in the second quarter of 2016, compared to its 25% failure rate in the previous quarter, the report claims. Out of the 58% of iOS devices that failed, the iPhone 6 had the highest failure rate (29%), followed by the iPhone 6S (23%) and iPhone 6S Plus (14%). Findings suggest “that software bug updates, hardware defects and smartphone operating system market share growth may have contributed to the...

Global tablet shipments will bounce back 16.3% sequentially to reach nearly 47 million units in the third quarter, but the volume will still be down over 10% compared to the same quarter a year ago, according to DigiTimes Research.

Despite the absence of new models for the second half of 2016, Apple will see its tablet shipment dip only slightly on year to 9.5 million units in the third quarter thanks to steady demand for 9.7-inch iPad Pro, adds the research group. (Note: the Sellers Research Group — that’s me — expects a second generation 12.7-inch iPad Pro to arrive before the holidays.)

While non-Apple tablet vendors will benefit from inventory build-ups in the third quarter, most brands still remain conservative about their business outlook. Among them, Samsung Electronics will see its shipment momentum fade during the peak season as its new entry-level and mid-range models will face increasing competition...

Rumors of an “Apple Car” continue unabated. Whether or not we see a full-fledged Apple-branded vehicle, the company is working on automotive technology. The company has been granted a patent (number 20160148897) for a “head unit” with auser-programmable button (physical or virtual) that would interact with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

A head unit in an vehicle can be programmed to use with the audio system. It could be used to bookmark a particular radio station. Modern head units are capable of utilizing the functionality of devices such as iPhones and iPads.

Apple says there’s a need to provide a “fast, efficient, and intuitive way for users to use affordances of a head unit to bookmark functionality on a connected phone or tablet.” The company’s plans call for a head unit to be able to request context information from an iOS device and store the context info in a physical or virtual button on the head unit.

Apple has also been granted a...

$19 billion: the ‘worst-case’ bill Apple could face...

JP Morgan, an investment banker for Apple, has said that the worst-case outcome of a long-running European Commission investigation into the legality of Apple’s European tax arrangements could be a back-tax bill of $19B. It had previously been estimated that the bill might amount to $8B.

The estimate was made as the US Treasury Department warned the European Commission about taking action against US companies over tax avoidance allegations, reports the BBC

Microsoft’s iPhone keyboard takes aim at Google with...

Verge:

Microsoft has released a big update for its Word Flow keyboard on the iPhone this week. The biggest addition is a new search interface that lets you find GIFs, emoji, images, contacts, and anything from Bing search results without leaving the keyboard. Microsoft’s GIF search feature copies the animated pictures into your clipboard, allowing you to paste them in. Word Flow will even pick out GIFs from words you type, so if you say “deal with it” in a message you’ll get a GIF icon that brings up the relevant image.

Interesting to see the keyboard as a point of search competition between Google and Bing.

Apple buys out vintage software collection on eBay

MacRumors:

An Apple collector who was selling his vintage Apple software collection on eBay received a surprise earlier this month when Apple itself bought out much of his software inventory for its software archives (via MacGeneration).

According to seller “Marcoguy,” he made several listings of various Apple CDs and received a message from someone asking to buy a dozen discs. When he went to ship the package, he noticed it was going to 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California, Apple’s corporate address. Upon asking the buyer about the purchase, he was told that Apple maintains a lab at its headquarters containing archived materials. “We were missing some of the disks that you placed on eBay,” wrote the buyer.

Fascinating.

Bloomberg: Apple to take another swing at social

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc., seeking to capitalize on the popularity of social networks, is developing a video sharing and editing application and is testing new related features for its iPhone and iPad operating systems.

The early plans are part of a newly directed focus to integrate social networking applications within Apple’s mobile products and are a response to the success of social media-focused companies such as Facebook Inc. and Snapchat Inc., according to people familiar with Apple’s strategy. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

And:

Now Apple is starting to develop a video sharing app that allows users to record video, apply filters and drawings to the media — much like Snapchat does — and send it to contacts or via existing social networks such as Twitter Inc., according to the people familiar with its development. The software is currently being designed to be used mostly with one hand and with the intention that video could be shot, edited...

Bloomberg says it’s a response to the success of social media-focused companies such as Facebook and Snapchat. The video sharing app, due next year, will purportedly allow users to record video, apply filters and drawings to the media -- much like Snapchat does -- and send it to contacts or via existing social networks such as Twitter.

The software is currently being designed to be used mostly with one hand and with the intention that video could be shot, edited, and uploaded in less than one minute, according to Bloomberg. The article adds that the app is being...

Hmmm, this logo sure looks familiar

Wired:

Google is in the midst of rolling out its newest mobile operating system, Android N, and with it comes a new logo. And it looks maybe a little … familiar? The N that folds over itself like a piece of ribbon? Graphic design trends—like all trends, really—come and go. And right now designers can’t get enough of these 3-D visual identities. Look around and you’ll begin to notice colorful, angular graphics that wrap around and fold over themselves like materials from a craft store.

Follow the link, scroll through the sequence of logos. There’s definitely a trend emerging here.

String in macOS Sierra beta code points to possible...

It’s the beta code that sometimes points out nifty Mac hardware to come.

Next-gen Macs may support USB 3.1 Gen 2, enabling peripheral speeds up to a maximum 10 gigabits per second according to code strings found in the latest macOS Sierra beta build.

A string in the Sierra beta mentions SuperSpeed+, a term reserved for Gen 2 ports. In fact it also specifically cites the 10-gigabit speed cap, twice as fast as Gen 1.

It’s thought that Apple could include USB 3.1 Gen 2 on future iMacs and MacBook Pro notebooks, which are expected to be announced sometime this fall. Support seems likely for Thunderbolt 3, which is cross-compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 2 and offers native speeds up to 40 gigabits per second, and DisplayPort...

Call it a gimmick if you must, but I'm very much into the idea of having a pizza box that doubles as a turntable. Pizza Hut partnered with Novalia to make the box, which includes pitch and volume controls, a mixer, and touch-sensitive decks. Using printed electronics, DJs can crossfade, rewind and even scratch. The box pairs with smartphones and computers using Bluetooth and works with DJ software. I'm glad this is not a set of true physical turntables, as the idea of placing delicate vinyls anywhere close to a greasy pizza box makes me queasy.

As of this week, Tim Cook has been permanent CEO of Apple for five years, which gives the punditocracy an excuse to opine ad nauseum about whether Cook is Apple’s best CEO ever or a poor excuse for Steve Jobs. Our take: let the numbers speak for themselves. Thanks to charts developed by Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research, you can see just how Apple has evolved over the past five years. You can see just how dominant iPhone unit sales and revenues are, how the Services category is growing, the importance of China to Apple’s fortunes, and more.

Mobile augmented reality users to approach 200...

Juniper Research says the mobile Augmented Reality (AR) market, is set to increase dramatically from 60 million unique users in 2013 to nearly 200 million in 2018. If Apple plans to get into the market, now is an opportune time.

The market will expand from the early adopting gaming segment and navigation based utility to becoming an integral part of the consumer’s ecosystem, according to the research group. Despite initial trepidation and single use applications of the technology, Juniper forecasts AR to become a key future platform for communication and commerce.

AR has a potential to engage a new generation of consumers in a unique manner, combining the personal nature of mobile devices with the Internet’s wealth of accessible information. Juniper’s report finds that as the market matures, the app ecosystem is set to expand rapidly over the forecast period.

iHome SD63 earphones look great, sound okay

iHome's SD63 retro-style, hi-fidelity stereo headphones are cool looking, but didn't sit on my noggin especially well and lacked some oomph in the bass department. 

The SD63 headphones feature plush ear cushions and a headband, a six-foot coiled cord, volume control and pivoting earcups, all complemented by stylish chrome accents and design details. They look good -- though they're not quite as retro as I'd like -- and are comfortable. The earcups swivel for single-sided or freestyle monitoring. However, they never sat well on my head, tending to tilt out slightly from the bottom of my ears, which didn't help audio quality (more on that in a minute). 

The rotary volume control on the earcup housing is convenient. I never could get the volume up really high, though that's probably a good thing, as it will keep the careless from blowing out their eardrums.

This year’s event will not only be available on Apple’s product lineup but also PCs, and for the first time through the Apple Music App on Android which launched in November of last year. That means a much wider audience. Today, Apple announced the headlining lineup …
