Samsung’s Galaxy S8 prepares Apple fans for all the...

Today was an exciting day over at 9to5Google as Samsung unveiled a suite of new features coming to their new Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices. What made today’s announcements uncanny was just how many features Samsung unveiled in their new Galaxy S8 that we’ve already heard reported for the upcoming iPhone 8. The Galaxy S8 may not be iPhone fans want today, but it surely prepares them for what we may be seeing later this year.

The ISP Coup, an Apple VPN, and Samsung’s Bixby...

ISPs performed a coup against consumers, and they did so in collusion with one of America’s major political parties. Bryan and Jeff are two tense geeks about it. Their solution would be for Apple to launch a VPN integrated into Apple’s products. And then there’s Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and that company’s delusions of software relevance. Oh, and Bixby, which could eventually succeed in making Samsung relevant.

While Spotify may lead in terms of subscribers, it’s already been proven that Apple Music can dominate even with its smaller user base. A new report from analytics firm Verto further highlights the sometimes underestimated reach of Apple Music.

The report shows that Apple Music comes out on top in terms of monthly unique users, thanks in large part to the three-month free trial Apple offers.

Notable apps and app updates for March 29, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Samsung just took the wraps off its new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones in a bid to make people forget about last year’s exploding Note 7 disaster. While the Galaxy S8 has a few things working against it—namely that it runs Android—Samsung gave its new flagship an impressively slick redesign. We wouldn’t mind if Apple lifted a few of the S8’s features for its 10th anniversary iPhone.

In fact, Apple is reportedly working on a few of these features already. We’re not saying that Samsung looks at Apple product rumors to define its own roadmap, but…anything’s possible.

Ahead of the debut of Apple’s previously announced Carpool Karaoke TV series on Apple Music next month, Spotify is planning what sounds a lot like a knockoff of the series with its own show called “Traffic Jams,” Variety reports.

But instead of having celebrities and musicians perform a song karaoke-style, Spotify is going to have artists produce a song in a moving vehicle (innovation!). It’s hosted by comedian DoBoy who will also drive the vehicle while the artists perform in the back. So, in other words, it’s exactly like Carpool Karaoke. Not a great look for Spotify’s answer to Apple’s original content plans. The first show is set to debut April 4th and feature artists T-Pain and Southside:

Apple World Today Video Review: IK Multimedia iRig...

Last week, we took a look at the IK Multimedia iRig Studio Mic, a compact microphone made especially for recording sound from iPad or iPhone. The mic received a five-star rating (the top rating we give in reviews), so I was looking forward to reviewing the latest version of software designed just for the mic -- IK Multimedia iRig Recorder 3 for iOS ($7.99 plus in-app purchases). 

Sadly, I can't say as many good things about iRig Recorder 3 as I could about the iRig Studio Mic. The app comes in two flavors -- free and a $7.99 version. Right off the bat, I'd suggest getting the free version because you still have to make some significant in-app purchases in order to get the app to do anything useful.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign the Republican-pushed bill. But Senator Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, said he will introduce new legislation to require the FCC to pass new ISP privacy rules.

What Killed Adobe Flash?

An employee, who claims to have worked on the development of Flash, writes: Apparently, the world settled on the "One True Cause" for why Flash "died". Take for example this blogpost by John Gruber about FedEx... it ends with this consideration on Steve Jobs' "Thoughts on Flash": "If it had been an angry rant, it would have been easily dismissed without needing to be factually refuted -- "That's just Jobs being a prick again." The fact that it wasn't angry, and because it was all true, made it impossible to refute." Impossible to refute. There's no doubt that this was the beginning of the end for Flash, right? Except that this is utterly wrong. I worked on Flash, and I worked on the thing that actually killed Flash. It is my strong belief, based on what I observed, that Steve Jobs' letter had little impact in the final decision -- it was really Adobe who decided to "kill" Flash. Yes, Flash was a bad rap for Adobe, and Steve's letter didn't help. But ultimately, what was probably...

Great job by Guilbert Gates and the Times multimedia team. The songs load instantly, stop on a dime, making it easy to quickly shift gears, control the pace. I love this.

That’s right — you now can replace either of these apps’ default icon with one featuring your favorite team’s logo instead.

These are terrific examples of custom icons at work. Makes me wonder if Apple implemented these in response to requests from MLB and the NHL.

Apple clears through almost 350 security...

Apple cleaned house via a slew of operating system updates on Monday, pinning down nearly 350 known vulnerabilities between its changes to iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

Starting with iOS 10.3, Apple’s latest version includes Find My AirPods, Apple’s new file system, CarPlay, and a few other small visual tweaks. With nearly every update Apple does, they also include a handful of security fixes that easily go unnoticed by the user. iOS 10.3 is no exception with over 85 different common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) listed.

In one case, the iOS 10.3 update patched a security hole that allowed attackers to spam Safari with a ‘Cannot Open Page’ dialog. Lookout, a cybersecurity company, learned of the attack after one of their users complained of losing control over their browsing experience. The dialog was meant to trick users into eventually paying money to “unlock” their Safari browser.

Another update for both iOS and macOS repaired a vulnerability in...

Elon Musk Plans to Build a Human-AI Interface


Tech visionary Elon Musk, who currently helms both Tesla and SpaceX, has launched a startup, Neuralink, dedicated to developing technology that will connect human brains directly to a computer.
This venture is in its very early stages, Musk confirmed. Neuralink, which Musk is funding privately, is a medical research firm that aims to develop "neural lace" -- a technology that could allow the implanting of small electrodes into the brain. Musk reportedly has recruited leading academics in the field to work with the company.

Comment: I don’t believe Apple is dumb enough to...

The iPhone 8 reports to date mostly point to Apple embedding the Home button and a new type of fingerprint sensor into the display itself, as a way to lose most of the ‘chin’ of the device. Today, however, the sketchiest of reports suggests that the company will instead move the existing Touch ID sensor to the rear of the phone.

The report mixes this in with a raft of things we’ve heard before. Glass backs, vertical cameras (which would be horizontal when used in the more common landscape mode) and...

BoostEngine Portable Car Jump Starter can charge my...

iClever’s $65 BoostEngine Portable Car Jump Starter is described as a “powerful, compact power bank with the ability to jump start dead car batteries and charge phones, cameras and other devices.” The problem is that it wouldn’t jump start my vehicle.

The gadget has a 15000 mAh and 600A power bank that’s supposed to let you jump start your vehicles up to 20 times. However, I tried to jump start the (extremely) dead battery on my old, six-cylinder Ford Ranger and got no response at all. There wasn’t even a hint that ol’ pickup might spring to life.

Obviously, I can’t recommend the BoostEngine Portable Car Jump Starter as …. well … a car starter. However, its “quick charge” technology did juice up my iPhone and iPad Pro quickly. 

The folks behind the BoostEngine say it can “charge phones and other devices at up to 75% faster than other chargers.” I didn’t find it to be THAT fast, but it did the job quickly...

Congress dismantles Internet privacy rules, allowing...

The U.S. House of Representatives has followed the Senate in voting to repeal privacy rules that can prevent broadband providers from selling customers’ internet-browsing histories and other data without their permission.

On Tuesday, the House voted 215-205 to do away with the privacy rules that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission passed last year. The rules had yet to come into effect.

They require broadband carriers to first obtain opt-in approval from customers before using and sharing their sensitive personal information, such as web browsing history, geo-location data and what applications they've used.

How to use Night Shift in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra 10.12.4, introduced this week, added Night Shift, a feature brought over from iOS. It helps you reduce the amount of blue light you're exposed to during the evening by shifting the display of a Mac to a more yellow tone.

Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be disruptive at night. The proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown and may affect sleeping patterns.

Apple hasn't made it especially easy to figure out how to implement Night Shift in macOS, but here’s how you do it:

  • Open the System Preferences app.
  • Click Display.
  • Select Night Shift.

You can turn Night Shift on or off. Set it to come on from sunset to sunrise — or you can use the Customize options to implement it for the hours of your choosing.

You can...

Many features of the iPhone 8 have been well documented at this point, with a general consensus on a 5.8-inch OLED screen on a chassis with almost no front bezel, along with wireless charging, 3D-sensing front camera and much more.

However, the ‘bezel-less frame’ has left one rather big open question. What happens to the Touch ID sensor? There have been murmurs of Apple integrating the fingerprint sensor below the display glass. This sounds cutting-edge and modern, but has not been well substantiated. A report coming out today...

Sometimes It Really Is the Cover-Up

Brian Solomon, writing for Forbes about Uber’s South Korean “karaoke/escort bar” scandal:

If true, that incident would be bad enough, but it appears to have
emerged solely due to Uber’s attempts to cover it up. According to
Holzwarth, Emil Michael called her three weeks ago as the news
about Uber’s workplace culture became a full-fledged scandal.
Michael allegedly asked her not to speak to the press and to
pretend the visit was simply to a regular karaoke bar. From The
Information
:

When Mr. Michael called, he told her that “things have been
really rough out here,” referring to Uber’s issues. He then said,
“Remember that night in Korea?” There are reporters, he said, who
