GoPro Whittles Down Hero4 Action Cam


GoPro's latest action cam features something the company's fans haven't seen for eight years: a product redesign. The company on Monday announced the Hero4 Session, a 1-inch cube video camera that weighs just 2.6 ounces -- less than half the heft of an iPhone. Unlike previous GoPro models, you won't need a case to protect it from getting wet. It's designed to withstand a soaking in up to 10 meters of water. However, while the camera is light in weight, it's also light on features -- and a heavy on price.

Review: TempTraq Wearable Bluetooth Thermometer

TempTraq, a Blue Spark Technologies company, has released the TempTraq Wearable Bluetooth Thermometer ($25), also known simply as TempTraq. A sticky patch designed to constantly monitor a child's temperature, TempTraq is worn directly on the skin, with the tip of the patch placed under a child's armpit. It uses Bluetooth to send live readings to a free app when a linked iOS device is within 40 feet. The app also allows users to track multiple children with multiple patches, and take notes, among other features. The patch is designed for one-time use, which makes the $25 price tag hard to swallow.{/exp:char_limit}

Rick Perry and the Texas vs. California Tech War


A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting to do a CNBC slot on the Apple Watch in Asia -- the entire smartwatch class is having a lot of issues -- and I ran into Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, as he was coming out of the studio I was about to enter. For some reason, I thought he was going to be a typical entitled stuck-up jerk, like a lot of folks in his position are, but he wasn't. We started chatting about technology and jobs, and how he'd been focused as governor on getting tech companies to move to Texas from California.

What Apple Music Connect needs to succeed

Apple Music’s Connect is designed to foster connections between artists and fans, but there’s not much to love yet on either front. For listeners, Connect is pretty bare-bones and hasn’t offered much in the way of new content. Musician and iOS app designer Dave Wiskus says it’s not great for artists yet, either.

In a Friday blog post, Wiskus detailed his near-disastrous attempt at uploading a new song to share on Connect.

Embedding a song to share on the platform is riddled with difficulties, a far cry from the ease of uploading to SoundCloud. Artists have to make the clip they want to post available in My Music, which requires importing the track to iTunes (which can be its own special kind of hell). Posting the track can be glitchy—the form artists have to fill out wouldn’t allow...

News: Report: iPhone 6S may be slightly thicker than...

An alleged schematic revealed by Engadget Japan alludes to the iPhone 6S as being slightly thicker than the iPhone 6. If true, the 6S will be 7.1 mm thick, a very slight increase over the existing iPhone 6’s 6.9 mm profile. The increase in size could be explained by rumors that Force Touch will be making its iPhone debut in the new model. Sources have claimed that any change to the 6S won’t be big enough to alter how existing iPhone 6…

How to catch every song Beats 1 plays

Thanks to Twitter, you can find every song that gets played on Beats 1

Here's a scenario you might find familiar. You're listening to Beats 1 when a great song comes on that you haven't heard before. You try to add it to your collection but it's not available. You search the iTunes Store but it's not there either. In the meantime, the song is over. What was it again? Drat, I forgot. Oh well. 

I was complaining about this on Twitter this morning when Kristoffer Tsinontas pointed me to the Twitter account Beats1 Plays. This unofficial account live-tweets every track that's being played on Beats 1. In the scenario above, I could simply hop on Twitter and see the very song I missed. 

Regarding those songs we can't add to our libraries, I'm not sure...

Leaked iPhone 6S schematic shows minimal exterior...

If nothing else, a leaked schematic should do the trick.

The cool cats at Engadget Japan have published what’s apparently a schematic of the upcoming iPhone 6S, which came from a source in the Chinese supply chain. The schematic shows a handset with only minimal changes from the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

In truth, the changes to the handset’s thickness appear to be imperceptible, as the thickness marked on the schematic is 7.1mm – just 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 6, and the exact same thickness as the iPhone Plus.

With these relatively unchanged numbers, it seems possible that your current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus case will fit the new model...

The real voice of Siri explains her work

“A Siri-like voice is still, at this point in time, very robotic,” she says. “The pitch is a little bit lower…it’s not as evenly paced as if you were speaking naturally.” She told me that few people recognize her on the street, since her speaking voice is different.

Developer Nolan Lawson has penned a followup to his “Safari is the new IE” blog post, apologizing for some of it, but emphasizing his original points that Safari is not keeping up with Web standards, Apple is too secretive, and Apple acts like a monopoly by not allowing other rendering engines on iOS. But most of all, he’s frustrated with Apple’s lack of interaction with the Web developer community. Lawson links all of the recent meetups and conferences, which Apple has skipped, to the fact that the Web is fast becoming the world’s most advanced cross-platform application runtime.

For those outside Europe who may not have seen too much news coverage, a combination of a long history of low levels of tax collection and the global financial crash has left Greece unable to pay its international debts. To prevent a collapse of the Greek banking system, the government has put strict controls in place, including maximum cash withdrawals of €60 ($66) a day – and a...

How Apple Music Can Disrupt Users' iTunes...

An anonymous reader writes: Early adopters of Apple Music are warning others they could get more than they bargained for if they intend to download tracks for offline listening. Since Apple Music is primarily a streaming service, this functionality necessitates turning on iCloud Music for syncing purposes. The way Apple syncs files is to scan your library for known music files, and if it finds one, the service gives your account access to Apple's canonical copy. Unfortunately, this wipes out any custom edits you made to the file's metadata. For those who have put a lot of time into customizing their library, this can do a lot of damage to their organizational system. Apple's efforts to simplify and streamline the process have once again left advanced users with a difficult decision to make.

Apple will also begin training its U.K staff on supporting Apple Pay on July 12th. Apple has begun enabling its mobile point of sale systems in England-based stores to take NFC payments and has been preparing materials to promote the Apple Pay launch in stores. It is plausible that different stores will have different launch dates, but the presence of the same, at least tentative, date makes July 14th a very possible widespread start date.

How-To: Go beyond OS X Photos + make amazing wall...

Apple knew it had something special to share with the world when it released iPhoto in 2002: in addition to printing 20″ by 30″ poster-sized photos, the original iPhoto’s “most stunning feature” (according to Apple) was a page layout tool that quickly turned digital photo collections into printed hardcover books. These were Apple’s acknowledgements that tangible photos still had value in a digital era, and it subsequently added calendars, greeting cards, softcover books, and letterpress cards to iPhoto. Apple’s newer app Photos for Mac hides these options under the File menu at the top of the screen, and hasn’t expanded on them, a shame considering how nice the results look.

But apart from including the poster options in 2002, Apple never added “large-format art” to the list of things its photo apps could produce. Back in 2002, digital cameras were so low-resolution that they struggled to...

Square Enix Pulls, Apologizes For Mac Version of...

_xeno_ writes: Just over a week after Warner Bros. pulled the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight due to bugs, Square Enix is now being forced to do the same thing with the Mac OS X version of Final Fantasy XIV (which was released at the same time as Batman: Arkham Knight). The rather long note explaining the decision apologizes for releasing the port before it was ready and blames OS X and OpenGL for the discrepancy between the game's performance on identical Mac hardware running Windows. It's unclear when (or even if) Square Enix will resume selling an OS X version — the note indicates that the development team is hopeful that "[w]ith the adoption of DirectX 11 for Mac, and the replacement of OpenGL with a new graphics API in Apple's next OS, the fundamental gap in current performance issues may soon be eliminated." (I'm not sure what "the adoption of DirectX 11 for Mac" refers to. OS X gaining DirectX 11 support is news to me — and, I suspect, Microsoft.) Given that the game...

Really it's all about the looks here. Developer Manish Dudharejia has managed to get all of the functions on a single screen, even on the Apple Watch. The result is colorful and friendly...a far cry from the utilitarian calculators I remember as a kid that were more function than form.

Use

Moveo Calc isn't a scientific calculator, so don't expect to find advanced calculations. But for quick, back-of-the-napkin math, it's fully capable and nice-looking to boot.

Apple ships a calculator app of course, but Moveo Calc is so friendly and colorful, you may choose to use it instead. As a free app, you can...

How to watch The Tour De France

Digg:

This Saturday, July 4, The Tour de France starts. And you should watch it.

Granted, out of all the sports, professional cycling is, by far, the most impenetrable to outsiders. There are so many questions: Why do they all ride together in a group? Why doesn’t just one guy jump ahead and leave everyone behind? If there’s only one winner, why are there teams? What’s with the different jersey colors? Aren’t all of these guys on steroids? All understandable!

But read this humble primer to cycling’s most prestigious — and most grueling — race, and we promise that you will relish waking up at 8 am to watch a bunch of men in spandex ride bikes through the French countryside.

I love this race. The spectacle, the scenery, the drama, the controversies, all add up to a month of great viewing. I wouldn’t ride a bicycle if you paid me and the sport is, like boxing and The World Cup, tarnished (almost) beyond redemption but I’ll still watch every second of it...

An inside look at America’s weirdest Independence...

Politico:

“The hot-dog contest is a physical manifestation of the concept of freedom,” said George Shea, the mastermind behind the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. “The contest has come to represent the spirit of July 4th itself. That is why people go to the event. It is kind of a pilgrimage to the center of July 4th and the center of freedom.”

More than 30,000 fans of the absurd will pack the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues to watch the annual feeding frenzy—the Super Bowl of eating contests.

I love America but I don’t understand the fascination with competitive eating in general and certainly not with this particular event. It’s actually been broadcast on ESPN. If this is the “spirit of July 4th”, I fear for that spirit.

The week in “iPhone 6S” rumors: Same body, faster...

September is only two months away, and that means three things: summer will turn to fall, network TV shows will return from hiatus, and we'll probably get some new iPhones.

The iPhone rumor business is a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year grind, but as we draw nearer to the actual release of new phones, the rumors tend to get more accurate. So accurate, in fact, that actual surprises at Apple's product events tend to be few and far between. Rather than re-post everything that comes across our desk, we'll periodically round up the best-sourced and most plausible rumors as they crop up. By the time September actually rolls around, we'll know most of what there is to know long before it's announced on stage.

It’s an “S” year

This shouldn't come as a surprise, but this year's iPhone likely focuses on internal changes, retaining the basic external design of the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We'll settle on calling it the "...

How-To: Record live Beats 1 radio shows on your Mac...

Apple’s Beats 1 global radio station went online this week, and its programming is already grabbing plenty of headlines. The challenge: just like conventional radio, the station doesn’t (yet) offer on-demand recordings of complete past shows. If there’s a DJ, specific artist, new show, or interview you’re really interested in hearing, you’ll need to tune in live… or, if you have a spare iOS 8.4 (or soon, iOS 9) device, you can use this handy guide to record Beats 1 shows using OS X’s free built-in app QuickTime Player. Read on for the details…

Start by turning Auto-Lock off on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch by going to the Settings app, then General > Auto-Lock > Never. Next, open the Music app on your iOS device, go to the Radio tab, and hit...

First full-length “Steve Jobs” trailer released

This actually looks pretty good.

On Wednesday, Universal released the first full-length trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic. The movie, directed by Danny Boyle and penned by Aaron Sorkin, delves into Job’s personal life, his product launches and his struggles regarding his relationship with daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs.

The trailer also gives more in-depth looks at Jeff Daniels and Kate Winslet, especially, as John Sculley and Joanna Hoffman, with various through-the-years glimpses of Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. The movie is slated to hit theaters on October 9th.

What to play this weekend: Adventures of Pip

Here, let me show you how this is done.

Let me set the scene for you. PAX East, 2015. My 10-year-old and I visit the Tic Toc Games booth, where a playable demo of Adventures of Pip is set up. He picks up the controller and begins playing this fun, retro platformer. He's doing well, and clears the first major hurdle. He figures out the first puzzle on the first try. "No one has gotten that on the first try," the developer says. A small crowd has gathered.

He beats the next hurdle, and the next. Puzzles are solved. The princess is rescued, the demo level beaten. First try, first life.

"Well @#!", says the developer.

Today, Adventures of Pip is among the best new games in Apple's App Store and deservedly so. My child's prodigious video game skills (my wife and I are so proud) shouldn't dissuade you from guiding heroic young Pip through the crumbling...

Rumor: Apple Watch 2 to retain similar appearance to...

The current rumor has it that the Apple Watch 2 will look pretty much the same but run for a longer period of time.

And that’s a decent thing.

Apple’s second-generation Watch is unlikely to see any external changes, a Thursday morning report from South Korea suggests, with the company instead focusing on tightening up internal components in order to fit a larger battery.

Following up on yesterday’s report that Apple is working with South Korean firms LG and Samsung to produce thinner OLED displays for its Watch revamp, the new rumor is that Apple is working on a larger battery for the wearable.

"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" by Tears for Fears will forever remind me of riding in my then girlfriend's crappy Oldsmobile Omega, windows down, sun shining, off to have some fun.

Van Halen's "5150" brings me back to away games with my high school soccer team.

Nitzer Ebb's "Join In The Chant" recalls my first year living in Boston.

These summer anthems are inextricably linked with time, place, and feelings: speeding in the Olds, the camaraderie of teammates, a new adventure beginning.

All of it was fueled by radio.

When I was young I listened to Rock 107 in Scranton, Pa. Later I'd love WFNX in Boston, and of course VMFM at Marywood University. But...

The Tour de France's Tech Transformation


The 102nd running of the longest sporting event in the world, the Tour de France, begins Saturday. The race first took place in 1903, and it has continued every year since, except during WWI and WWII. In the 112 years since that first race, the technology utilized by the riders has changed dramatically. Today, the racers ride bikes with frames made of advanced carbon fiber. They have a total of 22 gears to help climb mountains and sprint to the finish line, and they can communicate with their team managers over race radios.

To truly unlock discovery a serviceâs users need to be able to learn from each other. The world is full of stories where like-minded-yet-anonymous people have tipped one another to the next great band.

Review: Paste, a simple, effective and pretty...

You know how it goes: you copy a link, or a piece of text, intending to paste it – then you get distracted and copy something else before you get the chance. You then have to find and copy the first item again. A clipboard manager solves this problem by saving a history of the items you copy, letting you paste in any one of them later.

There are plenty of clipboard managers around (a quick search of the Mac App Store found 34 of them), and you might think that when you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ’em all. But where Paste stands out is in using a colorful interface with large previews, intended to make it easy to identify the item you want to paste. I’ve been trying it out for the past few days …

It appears Apple may agree: Patently Apple notes that the company today applied for a patent for a method of transferring money from one iPhone to another.

Using electronic devices (such as cellular telephones) that communicate wirelessly, two individuals can make person-to-person payments. In particular, an individual using an electronic device may identify another...

To entice users to check out Apple Music, Apple is providing three free months of the paid service at launch. These paid features include access to the Apple Music streaming service, unlmited track skipping in Music Radio and full access to Music Connect social network. Similar to most trials, Apple automatically will charge you for your first month of paid service when that trial period ends.

If you want to enjoy the trial without being hit by a surprise credit card charge in three months, you should take a few minutes now and turn off the auto-renew option before you forget.

  • Launch the Music app on your iPhone or iPad
  • Tap the profile icon in the upper left corner
  • Select "View Apple ID" and login to your iTunes account
  • Tap "Manage" under the Subscription header

When Apple showed up to the portable music device industry in 2001, the computer maker didn't have the advantage of being earliest to market. It had to win out by way of simplicity and usability, which its innovative, touch-sensitive click-wheel accomplished heartily.

Apple has since tried to replicate that click-wheel simplicity—albeit through entirely new interfaces and control methods—with varying levels of success, from amazing (iPhone) to lukewarm (Apple Watch). This week saw a relatively smaller launch of the new Apple Music app, and while it doesn't quite compare to a hardware rollout, it's...
