Apple removing ad blockers that install root...

Apple this evening has removed a handful of apps from the App Store that install root certificates of their own. By installing their own root certificate, the app developers could theoretically gain access to encrypted traffic from users. Among some of the apps being removed are a select number of ad blockers. The ad blockers that have been removed are ones that block content both in Safari and in other apps.

The process that developers went through to be able to block ads in third-party apps is basically setting up a VPN where all traffic is run through the developer’s servers to remove the ads. This is a process that, obviously, could be used for malicious practices...

Apple begins selling unlocked, SIM-free iPhone 6s...

Two weeks following the initial launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple has added a new purchasing option for the devices to its online store. Starting today, customers can buy an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus SIM-free, unlocked, and without a carrier…

Apple explains on its online store that purchasing a SIM-free iPhone means customers do not have to sign a contract commitment with a carrier, nor do they have to deal with carrier financing. It also notes that the device does not come with a nano-SIM, meaning that customers can go to a carrier of their choice and get a SIM, assuming the carrier supports the wireless bands the iPhone has. This, of course, means that the entire cost of the device must be paid upfront.


The SIM-free iPhone comes...

Elon Musk: All charged up in Berlin


Handelsblatt: Apple just hired some of Tesla’s most important engineers. Do you have to worry about a new competitor?

Musk: Important engineers? They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the “Tesla Graveyard.” If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.

Handelsblatt: Do you take Apple’s ambitions seriously?

Musk: Did you ever take a look at the Apple Watch? (laughs) No, seriously: It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn and say: Build me a car. But for Apple, the car is the next logical thing to finally offer a significant innovation. A new pencil or a bigger iPad alone were not relevant enough.

Yet another person who should know better being dismissive of Apple. Remember when cell phone manufacturers said it’s not easy to make a phone and that Apple...

Apple told TechCrunch, however, that its internal data shows a modest 2-3 percent difference as a whole, and that benchmark testing procedures are not an accurate way to measure battery life.

Facebook Tests New Button-Pushing Plan

Facebook on Thursday announced a pilot test of "Reactions," a way to respond to posts on the network in a more nuanced way than its Like button allows. The new feature is live in Spain and Ireland. CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously alluded to the eventual landing of a Like alternative, although he said it would not be a much-requested Dislike button. Facebook had good reasons to resist a Dislike button, with all of its attendant negativity. The new Reactions bar addresses the spirit of the user requests with a "more expressive Like button," said Chris Cox, chief product officer at Facebook.

The Mac now has 14.8% of the U.S. personal computer...

Apple's computer line continues to increase its share of the personal computer market. What's more, the Mac has set a new record in the United States.

Apple saw its worldwide Mac sales rise 1.5 percent over the third quarter of 2015, while U.S. shipments jumped 7.3 percent, according to Gartner Inc. That's the highest ever market share Apple has ever achieved in United States' PC market, beating the previous record of 13.4 percent.

The research group says Apple now has 7.6 of the global PC market — up from 6.9 percent in the third quarter of 2014. The news is even better in the U.S. Gartner says Apple's market share here grew 7.3 percent year-over-year and now stands at 14.8 percent.

Rose gold is the fastest selling iPhone model among...

New iPhones in rose gold, a color Apple CEO Tim Cook said he hoped would appeal to Asian consumers, sold faster than all other new iPhones after sales started at midnight in Taiwan, reports the Central News Agency (as noted by, a global investment newswire). Retailers Tsann Kuen and STUDIO A sold out of rose gold by 1:20 am.

Tsann Kuen sold out of the rose gold 64G and 128G iPhone 6S and 64G 6S Plus in half an hour. It sold all 128G rose gold 6S Plus handsets in 80 minutes. Rose gold was more popular than expected among men, the company, which 1,000 new iPhones in all models for the first batch, said.

STUDIO A sold out all iPhone models in an hour, with rose gold running out of stock first. The rose gold models sold out in Japan 20 minutes after going on sale there and, in China, the black market price for the rose gold 6S Plus peaked at CNY 21,000 (USD 3,310) in September, notes the Central News Agency, Taiwan's...

Tip of the Day: Enabling iCloud Drive app in iOS 9

Although Apple first debuted iCloud Drive in iOS 8 last year, it was implemented merely as a hidden file system designed to be used only within apps specifically designed to support it; unlike on OS X Mavericks, there was no iOS-based option to directly browse through your iCloud drive, making it a completely impractical replacement for something like Dropbox or Google Drive. The good news is that Apple has opened this up with iOS 9 by adding a standalone,…

Users of Microsoft’s Office for Mac 2016 who upgraded to Apple’s OS X 10.11, aka El Capitan, have become increasingly frustrated by repeated crashes of the Office applications, angrily denouncing Microsoft, and to a lesser extent, Apple, on the former’s support forum.

“It’s called Office ‘2016’ because that’s the expected date it ‘might’ work, although when in 2016 is not clear, assuming we are using the Gregorian calendar!” wrote someone identified only as “bluedolphin” in a Tuesday message on the longest thread dedicated to the crash issue.

Apple responds to A9 chip battery life

Apple’s statement:

With the Apple-designed A9 chip in your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you are getting the most advanced smartphone chip in the world. Every chip we ship meets Apple’s highest standards for providing incredible performance and deliver great battery life, regardless of iPhone 6s capacity, color, or model.

Certain manufactured lab tests which run the processors with a continuous heavy workload until the battery depletes are not representative of real-world usage, since they spend an unrealistic amount of time at the highest CPU performance state. It’s a misleading way to measure real-world battery life. Our testing and customer data show the actual battery life of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, even taking into account variable component differences, vary within just 2-3% of each other.

“Chipgate” scandal erupts for iPhone 6s, 6s Plus...

Well, you can’t release a new iPhone without at least some scandal.

This year it may come down to the processor inside your new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.

In the new “Chipgate” controversy, Apple may have shipped a series of processors that could affect battery life with the handset.

Apple, which used two suppliers (Samsung and TSMC) to build the chip, is facing feedback in which users are reporting that those with the Samsung chip could have up to 20 percent less battery life. Apple has yet to respond to the controversy.

For consumers, the problem is there is no way of telling which chip you will get when...

Lyft built its reputation on friendliness. From pink mustaches and fist bumps when the ride-hailing app launched three years ago to carpooling and tipping today, the company wants everyone, both drivers and passengers, to be happy. Today, Lyft rolled out three perks for drivers that will make passengers feel good about using the service—or persuade them to work for Lyft themselves.

The company is partnering with Hertz to offer daily, weekly, and monthly car rental discounts to Lyft drivers who don’t have access to a car, whether it’s in need of repairs or they don’t own one at all. The company is piloting the partnership program in Las Vegas, where Lyft was finally allowed to launch just last month after a years-long stalemate.

Silicon Valley will barely recognize the ‘Steve Jobs...


Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin uses actual events to take the audience on an imagined — as in, fictional — series of fast-paced exchanges in the minutes before the curtain would rise on the introduction of each product.

But the writer and director weren’t looking to create a biopic that rigidly adhered to the details of Jobs’s life — rather, they wanted to create an “impressionistic portrait” that drew from real-life events.

The story is populated by events that never happened — such as a dramatic reimagining of preparations for the Mac’s demo in which it blows up in rehearsal, instead of declaring, “Hello, I am Macintosh. It sure is great to get out of that bag” — and long, stinging exchanges that aren’t drawn from any of the six biographies written about Jobs.

I’ll still see the movie but will be disappointed if only because I would have preferred more “reality”. Steve Jobs was such a fascinating person that his life story,...

The Next Web:

Lightroom for mobile on iOS can now be used locally on your phone or tablet without the desktop Lightroom app, without a Creative Cloud Photography Plan subscription and even without an Adobe ID. The same feature is coming soon to Android.

This move is part of an overall desire to broaden the audience. By letting people use Lightroom for mobile without Creative Cloud, Adobe is making the app competitive with other popular standalone photo editing apps like Snapseed or Pixelmator’s mobile version.

I use and love the desktop version of Lightroom and this will be another tool I can use when I’m out and about using my iPad.

Not All iPhone 6s Processors Are Created Equal

itwbennett writes: Apple is splitting the manufacture of the A9 processor for its iPhone 6s between TSMC (~60%) and rival Samsung (~40%) — "and they are not created equal," writes Andy Patrizio. For starters, Chipworks noted that Samsung uses 14nm while TSMC uses 16nm. A Reddit user posted tests of a pair of 6s Plus phones and found the TSMC chip had eight hours of battery life vs. six hours for the Samsung. Meanwhile, benchmark tests from the folks at MyDriver (if Mr. Patrizio's efforts with Google Translate got it right) also found that the Samsung chip is a bigger drain on the phone's battery, while the TSMC chip is slightly faster and runs a bit cooler. So how do you know which chip you got? There's an app for that.

Verizon iPhone users still clinging on to their grandfathered unlimited data plans will shortly face a $20 price hike. The wireless carrier confirmed to CNET that it plans to raise the price of its old unlimited plan, meaning grandfathered customers will face a monthly data plan charge of $49. The price increase will take place once each individual contract expires…

VZW shifted away from unlimited data back in 2011, and since then, virtually all customers have moved on to the limited, tiered data plans as perks were taken away from the older plans. Only a very small number (less than 1%) of its subscriber base are still unlimited. Interestingly, ...

Lightroom for the iPhone and iPad is a pretty powerful image editing app, but has always required a Creative Cloud subscription, and that you use the Mac version of the app, too. As of Thursday that changed because Adobe turned Lightroom for iOS into a truly stand-alone app that doesn't even require a Creative Cloud subscription.

The Mac Observer Spin: Adobe wants to own the creative tablet market, and taking away the Creative Cloud requirement for Lightroom is another example of that. Adobe was also a part of Apple's iPad Pro unveiling, has other creative apps for the iPhone and iPad, and sells its Ink and Slide stylus for the iPad. Adobe is playing for keeps.

Let's have a Mac keyboard/mouse/touchpad with...

One of the iPhone 5's groundbreaking features was the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which helps eliminate the need for passwords. The iPhone 6s/6s Plus upped the ante with the 3D Touch feature. So when will the Touch ID/3D Touch sensor make it to the Mac's keyboard/mouse/touchpad?

Touch ID offers a way to securely unlock your iPhone with the touch of a finger. Built into the home button, it uses a laser cut sapphire crystal, together with the capacitive touch sensor, to take a high-resolution image of your fingerprint and intelligently analyze it to provide accurate readings from any angle.

The Touch ID sensor recognizes the touch of a finger so the sensor is only activated when needed, preserving battery life on the iPhone. Touch ID can also be used as a secure way to approve purchases from the iTunes Store, App Store or iBookstore.

Imagine being able to do this on your Mac with a keyboard, mouse or touchpad built with a...

Overflow helps you organize, free up the Mac OS X...

Sure, you can place the Applications folder in the Dock, but it's easier to use Overflow (US$14.95) from Stunt Software because, with it, you view only what you want, not everything in the Applications folder. 

The Mac app (for OS X 10.5 and later) offers a nicely arranged palette that can be resized. In Overflow -- now up to version 2.5.9 -- categories allow the software to hold as many items as you want. The full keyboard control, including a hot key to bring up the main window, adds the ability to use the application entirely without the mouse. A dock menu gives access to any items stored in Overflow directly from the dock.

Items can be added to the Overflow palette by either adding via the editing function, or dragging and dropping to the Overflow icon on the Dock or to the palette. To use the program, you simply click on its Dock icon, and click on the app, doc or folder...

How to mute video ads in El Capitan's Safari

Don't you hate it when you have several open browser tabs in Safari and one of 'em is blasting you with unwanted music or an ad? You can eliminate the problem with Safari in Mac OS X El Capitan. 

You can mute music/noise without knowing which tab it's coming from — and right from the Smart Search field in the web browser. If you’re listening to audio in one tab and another website starts to play, you can mute the one you don’t want to hear. And if you want total silence, you can mute all audio from your browser, too.

To hush audio, find the audio icon in the smart search bar. Click it, and you'll see an option to mute the offending tab. Click it again to start the audio.

To disable the sound for all other tabs while still listening to one, you should:

  • Click and hold the sound icon on the tab you want to hear.

As expected, Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jony Ive today took the stage at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Ive shared the stage with famed director, writer, and producer J.J. Abrams. During his time on stage, the Apple executive spent a decent amount of time discussing the life of the late Steve Jobs, who passed away four years ago this week.

Regarding the time when Jobs passed away, Ive remarked that he “was faced with this wall of grief.” Perhaps as a slight jab at recent films that have portrayed Jobs in a negative light, Ive also...

Retuning Rdio: Why I Dropped Apple Music

Microsoft’s retail stores flounder

Nearly six years have passed since Microsoft began opening retail outlets patterned after Apple’s blockbuster retail locations. However, the now 116 Microsoft Stores are still a pale imitation to Apple’s own retail network of 460 locations, often featuring more employees than customers as the firm’s products have failed to excite and attract buyers.

This was a sad attempt to copy Apple’s success and it didn’t work. Microsoft under Ballmer tried to copy Apple in a number of ways and they all failed miserably.

AWT News Update: October 7, 2015

Today's news sounds more like Apple is a media company than a consumer electronics firm:

  • Amazon is rumored to be in discussions to bring a competing live TV streaming service to its world, similar to the service that will be available for the 4th-generation Apple TV
  • ABC News shows video of a "kinder, gentler" Steve Jobs prior to this Friday's limited distribution kickoff of "Steve Jobs"
  • The movie's director thinks Apple and other tech companies are scary
  • Synology is known for making network-attached storage, but they've just announced two new watchOS apps.

Adobe teases 12 future features for its apps...

At its 2015 MAX program, Adobe showed off 12 new projects that are part of its “Sneaks” program. Essentially, Sneaks are ideas and features that the company is working on behind the scenes that could eventually make their way into Creative Cloud products. Adobe notes that the deciding factor in whether or not these features make it into products is whether or not users “make some noise” for these previews…

First off is a new feature called Monument Mode. This feature uses a new algorithm to distinguish moving objects from fixed ones and allows the user to click on the moving objects to...

App for Rating People Draws Withering Scorn

Canadian businesswoman Julia Cordray's plan to launch Peeple, a Yelp-like app that would let people post reviews about other people, has drawn fierce criticism in the tech press and the blogosphere, including a petition against the app's launch and a Twitter campaign to boycott it. "It's a legal and ethical minefield," said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, a research director at 451 Research. "Critiquing views, opinions, products and services is one thing; critiquing a person is quite another."

Apple tops U.S. companies 'exploiting'...

Apple sits atop the list of U.S. companies that are taking advantage of global tax havens, according to the Center for Tax Justice's analysis of SEC filings. 

U.S. multinationals in the Fortune 500 doubled the assets they hold in foreign subsidiaries between 2008 and 2014, taking advantage of loopholes in U.S. and foreign laws to keep $2.1 trillion out of sight of tax authorities, the report says.  As for Apple, it held $70 billion more held offshore in 2014 than in 2013, the Center for Tax Justice says. 

"Apple has booked $181.1 billion offshore — more than any other company," says the report. "It would owe $59.2 billion in U.S. taxes if these profits were not officially held offshore for tax purposes. A 2013 Senate investigation found that Apple has structured two Irish subsidiaries to be tax residents of neither the United States, where they are managed and controlled, nor Ireland, where they are incorporated. This arrangement ensures that they pay no tax to ...

Review: Trident Case Aegis Pro Case for iPhone 6/6s

Trident Case's Aegis Pro Case ($35) is a two-piece hard plastic case for iPhone 6s. Aegis Pro includes button coverage and, interestingly, built-in rubber covers for the headphone and Lightning ports. A lanyard loop is also included on the side of the case, though no lanyard comes with the case. A stick-on screen protector is also included. We don't see too many straightforward plastic cases these days, so the look and feel is a bit different compared to the many TPU options out there (Aegis Pro only has a very thin TPU layer inside its shell). But the case doesn't feel flimsy. Aegis Pro comes in blue, black, or pink.{/exp:char_limit}

Philips Smart Hub Embraces Siri, HomeKit

Philips on Monday unveiled Hue Bridge 2.0., which integrates the company's smart home products and iOS's HomeKit, giving users the ability to dictate to smart things from a Siri-enabled smartphone. Replacing its round predecessor, the square Hue Bridge 2.0 is compatible with Philips' legacy smart lights and controls. It's a mutually beneficial relationship: HomeKit can reach Hue lamps and lights, while homes already kitted out with Philips' smart lighting gain the ability to automate their Internet of Things devices via iOS.

Beats Pill speaker gets an Apple-flavored redesign


The first Pill has sold more than a million units since its debut in 2012. Though it’s a hit, it’s gotten long in the tooth and the audio quality is really poor. That makes the Pill the perfect thing to tear down and rebuild. (Also, Bluetooth speakers are way easier than headphones.)

The result, the Beats Pill+, sounds much better, looks much better, and is a far more enticing product than its predecessor. It’s more than just a new piece of mobile candy. It’s an opportunity for Apple to show the extent to which it can shape the design of hardware coming out of its subsidiary.

We won’t know for sure until reviewers get units in hand for testing but the early comments from the Beats demo sound promising. I don’t read anything that makes me want to give up my Libratone Zipp speaker though.

Canonical Plays With Internet of Toys Idea

Canonical last week announced plans to launch the Internet of Toys, an open source initiative calling on toy makers, hackers, Internet of Things fans and innovators to build the next generation of Web-accessing toys. Participants will build the next generation of toys around open source tools such as Cylon JS, Gobot, Snappy Ubuntu Core, Snapcraft, ROS and Erle-Spider. "The idea is that any toy, for kids and not-so-kids, can be app-enabled and have an app store and, potentially, peripherals," said Maarten Ectors, a vice president at Canonical.

Podcast 477: Hello iPhone, good-bye Watch

Susie just got back from vacation, with tired arms and a rose gold iPhone 6s. Glenn sold his Apple Watch and is in the process of upgrading his iPhone the old fashioned way—by selling it and buying a new one for full price. Buying iPhones got more confusing this time around than ever, and we can't help talking about it, even in advance of Dan Frakes's visit planned for next time.

Obviously, that's not all we talked about: Microsoft dropped the ball right off the top of El Capitan, and Amazon got tough on which streaming box will be sold in its online superstore. (No spoilers! Ha.) Plus, if ad blockers charge you to block ads, and advertisers to remain unblocked, isn't everyone losing but the ad blocker?

∞ Steve Jobs: “Marketing is about Values”

ideaMachine Studio:

We stumbled upon the Steve Jobs “Think Different” marketing campaign speech in light of the new movie release this weekend. As animators, we were really struck when he paused for a good while before he said “… marketing… is about values.” We could see in his body that this thought weighed on him. And, in fact, that thought would determine the direction of Apple for the next two decades.

For Jobs, Apple was not about “making boxes for people to get their jobs done.” He and his executive team needed to be about something more. They needed to think beyond the equipment… beyond the dollars, toward something more. They needed to live in service to a higher calling. It’s hard to hear this speech without being moved. Not just because we are hearing a speech from a dead man, but because we know what Steve Jobs is saying is true. Our studio was challenged by this very real moment. Were we just clocking in and clocking out? Were we living from dollar to...

“Moments” is Twitter’s latest attempt to make its...


Twitter’s strength has always been hosting conversations around live events, but it’s not always easy to find them. Doing so often requires some savvy, juggling multiple tabs within Twitter’s app—not to mention knowing the right hashtags and accounts to follow.

Moments is designed to untangle some of these complexities by relying on curation to surface such conversations. Both Twitter’s staff and its partners—including NASA, Major League Baseball, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and BuzzFeed—will package tweets into collections, which will show up under a new tab called Moments.

I don’t know if I’d describe “Twitter’s strength” in that way but anything Twitter can do to make the service “less confusing” to new users is good for the company and will help keep the investor wolves from their door. Personally, I don’t find Twitter all that confusing but then again, I’ve been using it from the beginning. Am I wrong? Is Twitter confusing for new...

Apple and Beats release the Pill+ speaker

Apple and Beats have released the Pill+, the first speaker made since the latter was bought by the former. Apple purchased Beats last year for US$3 billion.

The Beats Pill+ costs $230, comes in either black or white, and will be available at and authorized Beats retailers next month. The Beats Pill+ is slightly larger than the original Beats Pill speaker and boasts a stereo active 2-way crossover system. Tweeter and woofer separation uses the same acoustic mechanics found in professional recording studios around the world.

The folks at Beats claim the Pill+ speaker has a 12-hour battery life. The Lightning cable and power supply purportedly provide a full charge in three hours

Additionally, Beats has announced the Beats Pill+ app for iOS or Android devices . Available for the iPhone and iPad for free at the Apple App Store, it allows you to manage your speaker with your fingertips. Using the...

Disney animators test out iPad Pro, comment on “...

This is pretty interesting.

Apple apparently allowed Pixar’s staff to play around with the upcoming iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. A week later, Apple let Disney’s Feature Animation studio take a crack at it.

The animators commented that the device’s screen surface has “tooth,” or textured roughness, to augment drawing feel.

Using iPad Pro’s 12.9-inch workspace, in conjunction with the pressure and position sensing Apple Pencil, animators like Paul Felix recreated classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Olaf from “Frozen.” It is unclear if the screen design is part of the shipping product, as Apple has not officially discussed the reported tweak....

Beddit Sleep Tracker adds an Apple Watch app

When it comes to wellness, one aspect that is often overlooked is the quality and quantity of sleep that a person gets. There are a number of activity trackers that aim to quantify how well you're sleeping by figuring out how many times you toss and turn during the night, but they're only looking at external factors. The Beddit Sleep Tracker Smart (US$149) goes much further than those activity trackers by actually monitoring cardiac contraction forces through ballistocardiography. This detects individual heartbeats of one or two sleepers, as well as breathing rhythm and any respiratory issues a sleeper might be having. The results are displayed on an iPhone app, and now the device has a companion Apple Watch app.

The Beddit sensor is actually a thin band that is placed under the sheets on a bed, so there is no need to wear a device to bed. The Sleep Monitor Smart uses Bluetooth Smart to communicate your nightly readings to...

Current rumors are pointing towards new iMacs and the unicorn of current technology, the iPad Pro, over the next week and next month.

Recent reports indicate that Apple will be introducing an updated 2015 iMac next week. The models could arrive in the stores as early as October 13th, albeit supplies may be somewhat limited until production ramps up in November.

The 21.5-inch iMac will have a resolution of 4096 x 2304. Code discovered in OS X El Capitan has pointed towards Broadwell chips with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 and AMD Radeon M380 – M395X discrete graphics for the new iMacs.

The current rumors suggest that the new 21.5-inch...
