Debunking the myth of the ‘real’ Robinson Crusoe

Like many of you, I read and was enamored of the novel and movie as a kid. I’d heard of Selkirk’s connection but didn’t realize it was mostly false.

iPhone 7 Plus: Portrait mode impressions on iOS 10.1...

I admit that I buy a new iPhone every year for the camera upgrades. My iCloud Photo Library is up to 14,633 photos and 1,261 videos and growing. Almost every one of those were captured with an iPhone so its camera matters to me. Last year’s iPhone 6s introduced Live Photos which I absolutely love. (This from November is just one of my favorites; you can view it on the web thanks to Tumblr’s new Live Photo feature).

This year includes Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus which intelligently applies a blur effect over backgrounds on still shots. Portrait mode photos often look like they were shot on dedicated cameras, not smartphones...

Apple shares balloon-filled iPhone 7 ad showing off...

Apple has just posted the latest iPhone 7 ad on their YouTube channel today, entitled ‘Balloons’ for obvious reasons. The video follows a balloon throughout various scenes as it eventually finds it way to other balloons, and into someone’s window. It’s only clear at the end that the ad spot is for the iPhone 7 with the balloon tie-in promoting the new Messages features on iOS 10.

Apple’s relationship with the pro community

I write Mac software for a YC company in the pro video space. Our new product started deployments a couple of months back, and a major source of problems has been the Apple platform — both hardware and software. It’s so bad that we’re actively working to move off the Mac completely. (I’ve spent 15 years doing Mac software, so this is a big deal for me.)

I’m so sad to see things like this. I use an iMac right now for music production, but many of the pros I know in the music industry are using older Mac Pros and have them locked into old versions of software.

FCC delays vote to make subscription TV available on...

Juli Clover writing for MacRumors:

Introduced in January by United States Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler, the proposal initially called for content providers to allow cable and satellite subscribers to access and watch cable content on any set-top box of their choosing, including the Apple TV, rather than being forced to lease a set-top box provided by cable companies like Comcast and Time Warner Cable.

That’s too bad. The pressure from cable companies against this proposal must have been incredible.

Apple’s AirPods don't go on sale until late October, but 12% of U.S. consumers surveyed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch say they intend to purchase ‘em, reports Business Insider.

Some of the reasons why some consumers might not decide to opt for the wireless earbuds are that their current headphones are good enough (56% of respondents) and that they're too expensive (40% of respondents.)

The wireless headphones use advanced technology and interact with Siri. They eliminate the hassles of wireless headphones, by just flipping open the lid of its charging case and, with one tap, they are instantly set up and ready to work with your iPhone and Apple Watch, according to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. Advanced sensors know when you are listening and automatically play and pause your music.

Apple’s first R&D Center in China to open this...

Apple is setting up its first R&D center in China in Beijing's Zhongguancun Science Park, according to a statement issued by the Zhongguancun Park Management Committee — and as noted by DigiTimes.

The R&D center — expected to be completed this year — has a registered capital of approximately US$14.994 million and will hire a total of 500 employees. DigiTimes says it will focus “on the development of computer software and hardware products, communication, audio and video devices, as well as advanced technologies for consumer electronics products and the information industry.” Plans for the center were first announced in August.

Zhongguancun, or Zhong Guan Cun, is a technology hub in the Haidian District of Beijing, China. It’s located in the northwestern part of the city and is often referred to as "China's Silicon Valley.”

Spotify launches in Japan

It its favor, it is the one mainstream streaming service in Japan that has a free-tier option for users. That goes some way to explaining why it has taken so long for the Swedish company to secure deals with record labels, but it could be a factor that helps its service gain some momentum in the country among users who are not used to paying for digital music consumption.

I wonder how this free tier on Spotify will affect Apple Music. Overall, Spotify has a solid reputation in the streaming business, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out in terms of subscriptions.

The South Korean firm has said the Note 7 phones that were sold starting on the official Sept. 1 launch date use a different battery than the recalled devices. But a string of reports by users in China, the world’s top smartphone market, that their Note 7s caught fire have dogged Samsung in a country where they have already fallen out of the top five in terms of market share.

It’s like Samsung is doing everything it can to screw up this recall. What they should do is recall all of the devices and replace them—that’s the only way to restore consumer confidence.

iPhone 8 likely to have glass front and back,...

Rendering via ConceptiPhone

The iPhone 7 has been out for just a few weeks, and the rumors are starting to swirl about the next-generation phone likely to be released next September. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is forecasting that Apple will use glass front and back panels similar to the iPhone 4/4s in the iPhone 8, mainly because demand for the new Jet Black iPhone 7 is exceeding supply due to manufacturing constraints.

The glass back would provide more scratch resistance than the existing aluminum Jet Black model, which Apple has told customers to use with a case to avoid "micro abrasions." Using an all-glass design would also make the glossy finish available to all colors of iPhones. 

All iPhones use a metal casing for durability; Kuo thinks that the new iPhone models will have either a stainless steel or aluminum casing, with higher-end phones likely to use stainless steel. Kuo has also...

Officially named the USB Audio Device Class 3.0 specification, this new release sets the standard for how audio should work over USB Type-C. The USB-IF hopes the new specification will be the “primary solution for all digital audio applications, including headsets, mobile devices, docking stations, gaming set-ups and VR solutions.”

Bill Atkinson, the legendary developer behind the original Mac’s QuickDraw graphics system and classic Mac apps like MacPaint and HyperCard, has been waiting for Apple’s forthcoming AirPods for years. Back in 2011, he gave a Macworld Expo presentation in which he explained why Siri belongs in your ear, which the AirPods will provide. Atkinson cites the Jane artificial intelligence in Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game” series as a model for Apple to follow. As for the future of Siri on the AirPods, Atkinson says, “Within a few years it’s going to be able to do lots of things: It will hear everything you hear, it’s going to be able to whisper in your ear.” For the moment, though, he’s realistic about Siri’s capabilities. “Siri is a bit of a joke now; it doesn’t really understand the meaning of conversations,” Atkinson admits. “That’s going to improve.”

According to reports collated by Digitimes, the center has a budget of about $15 million, with a long-term expenditure goal of $45 million over the next few years. The center is allegedly seeking to hire around 500 workers, with no particular focus beyond Apple products and software. The move mirrors similar setups in Japan, and Israel.

This is certainly good marketing for Apple, as every new Safari page opens as an ad for iPhone 7, Apple Watch, etc. But I set my home page up the way I wanted it. Not sure if this is an intentional move on Apple’s part or, perhaps, just a bug, a reset of the home page. But it happened without my installing anything new on my computer. And it is happening to others, though not to everyone.

Apple is looking into ways for your Mac and iPad and/or iPhone to work together in new, exciting ways. The company has filed for a patent (number 20160283063) for “content presentation and interaction across multiple devices.”

The invention involves an application that can generate multiple user interfaces for display across multiple electronic devices. After the devices establish communication, an app running on at least one of the devices can present a first set of information items on a touch-enabled display of one of the electronic devices. 

The electronic device can receive a user selection of one of the first set of information items. In response to receiving the user selection, the app can generate a second set of information items for display on the other electronic device. The second set of information items can represent an additional level of information related to the selected information item.

Logic dictates that a new OS update will be required for these new machines and if they were ready late September/early October, Apple would have added them to the September event.

Shake Shack founder integrates Apple Watch into new...

Daniela Galarza, writing for Eater:

NYC restaurateur, Shake Shack founder, and millionaire Danny Meyer is having a good week. He’s invested in a home-cooked food delivery start-up, introduced paid parental leave for all of his employees, and today almost single-handedly made the Apple Watch — a very expensive trophy gadget at best — relevant.

Trophy gadget? Um. No. But to continue:

When Meyer’s 30-year-old Union Square Cafe reopens in Manhattan next month, every floor manager and sommelier will be wearing an Apple Watch. And when a VIP walks through the front door, someone orders a bottle of wine, a new table is seated, a guest waits too long to order her or his drink, or a menu item runs out, every manager will get an alert via the tiny computer attached to their wrist.

This is a new use case for Apple Watch, an interesting idea. If it lives up to its potential, no reason this won’t spread to other restaurants and make the Apple Watch a standard element...

The UK's Largest Sperm Bank Is Now An App

Sperm bank? There's an app for that. The largest sperm bank in the United Kingdom -- the London Sperm Bank -- has released an official app that aims to "modernize the process of hooking prospective parents up with the biological material they need to make it happen," according to MIT Technology Review: The app is essentially just a mobile version of the filtered search function the London Sperm Bank offers on its website. But in doing something as simple as bringing its desktop services to mobile devices, the bank is making a play to further normalize reproductive technologies. The London Sperm Bank boasts that users will receive push notifications as soon as new donors are available, which could help speed things up for hopeful parents looking for a match. The road to conception can take years for people using reproductive technologies, so expediting any part of the process would be a welcome time-saver. But the bank has over 10,000 vials of sperm, so searching, even using filters...

The group is tasked with conducting research and promoting best practices. Practically, this means that the group of tech companies will come together frequently to discuss advancements in artificial intelligence. The group also opens up a formal structure for communication across company lines. It's important to remember that on a day to day basis, these teams are in constant competition with each other to develop the best products and services powered by machine intelligence. Financial support will be coming from the initial tech companies who are members of the group, but in the future membership and involvement is expected to increase. User activists, non-profits, ethicists, and other stakeholders will be joining the discussion in the coming weeks. The organizational structure has...

8Bitdo Goes Retro with Apple-themed Game Controller...

iPhone and iPad game controllers aren’t exactly news, unless they’re awesomely retro—like the AP40 from 8Bitdo. Their game controller has a classic NES look with a dash of Apple II thrown in, sports Apple’s iconic rainbow stripes, and the “AP40” name is a hat tip to Apple’s 40th anniversary. It’s a Bluetooth game controller you can use with iOS and Android devices, as well as the Mac, and it comes with a green Apple leaf plug for the USB charger port. As if that isn’t enough, it comes bundled with Apple II-shaped stand to hold the charger, your iPhone, or iPad. The AP40 is a Kickstarter project that’s already nearing its minimum funding level. Funding at the US$49 level gets you the AP40, and at $69 you get the controller and retro stand, too.

iMessage and metadata: What you need to know

There’s a story going around about Apple storing metadata associated with the iMessage service and, when obligated by a court order, turning that data over to law enforcement. The details of the story are accurate, as far as I know, but it conflates two very different things in order to create a sensational headline, which is unfortunate for people who want and need to be informed about important issues involving privacy.

Very good explanation from Rene.

In today's Apple news -- word of a hacker meeting at Apple headquarters today, a rumor that the Lightning port may be the next iPhone port to disappear, and an interesting piece of information on how Apple logs each of your Messages...although it can't read them. 

  • Apple invites a dozen or so top hackers to Apple HQ to get them up to speed on a new bug bounty program that could pay up to $200,000 for each vulnerability found
  • A patent filing today shows a new "optical port" that could be used on future iPhones, making a port-less iPhone a reality
  • Apple logs the IP address, date and time of every text message you send, and can provide that information to law enforcement officers upon request.

My prediction: new MacBook Pros, new iMacs, and a...

Apple is preparing to update several of its Mac lines in late October, led by a redesigned MacBook Pro, according to MacRumors. I think that’s about right and here’s the prediction of the Sellers Research Firm (that’s me): new MacBook Pros and new iMacs will be announced on Tuesday, Oct. 25. (I hope I’m wrong, and that it’s sooner, but that’s what my crystal ball shows.)

The revved pro laptops will purportedly be thinner, include a touch screen strip for function keys, and will be offered with more powerful and efficient graphics processors for expert users such as video gamers. The most significant addition to the new MacBook Pro is expected to be a secondary display above the keyboard that replaces the standard function key row. Instead of physical keys, a strip-like screen will present functions on an as-needed basis that fit the current task or application. 

In addition to redesigned MacBook Pro models, Apple...
