On Jeff Williams and Apple’s Executive Team

Neil Cybart, writing at Above Avalon:

One thing became abundantly clear after analyzing Apple’s recent
earnings report
: Jeff Williams is doing a phenomenal job. As
senior vice president of Operations, Williams is tasked with
making sure the Apple machine is well-oiled and in tip-top shape,
not only capable of producing more than 100 million iOS devices in
a quarter, but building flexibility into the system to handle
annual hardware updates that would make most hardware companies
quiver with fear. I considered Jeff Williams as Tim Cook’s
successor before Cook finished his first day as CEO
, and I
feel even more confident about that today....

After years of failing to do much more than embarrass Samsung Electronics in legal battles over patent infringement, Apple has rapidly obliterated Samsung's mobile division profitability, rendering it as barrenly unprofitable as every other Android or Windows licensee with razor thin margins in the phone, PC and tablet market.

Apple has released a new update for iTunes on OS X that introduces support for a Notification Center widget. The widget will allow users to control their music and buy songs from iTunes Radio directly from the system-wide panel.

iTunes 12.1 also includes a “quick tour” feature that runs on the app’s second launch. It’s the same quick tour that has been available on Apple’s website since last year, but it is now included natively in the app to help users get acclimated to the new design.

It's no Twitter, but Plague is an infectious...

We’re used to social networks where we follow people and view what they post: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others depend on each user connecting with others in order for content to be shared. Plague doesn’t work like that at all, but it can be addictive despite its limitations.

Plague is a new paradigm for sharing information. Through its free iOS and Android apps, users post cards, containing text (140 characters), photos, and/or videos, and “infect” other users who are nearby. These users, in turn, decide whether they want to spread the cards to other users near them: swiping up shares a card, and swiping down ignores it. Each user has an “infection index,” which increases as they participate, and which determines how many people their shares will infect.

SpaceX Video Stirs Excitement for Falcon Heavy


SpaceX on Thursday released a computer-generated animation demonstrating how the three Falcon 9 cores of its Falcon Heavy rocket, scheduled for launch later this year, would return to Earth. The boosters would land vertically at a selected site. The Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful rocket in the world, being able to lift more than 53 metric tons, or 117,000 pounds, into low earth orbit. That's equivalent to a Boeing 737 fully loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel, and it is more than twice the payload of the next closest operational space vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy.

Review: Harman Kardon Soho Wireless Headphones

Harman Kardon's Soho Wireless ($250) is a new Bluetooth on-ear headphone set — a newer version of the company's prior Soho Slim wired headphones. Soho Wireless has a similar look with a leather finish, but it has a different feel when wearing. In addition to Bluetooth, the headphones add NFC and a rechargeable battery. Hidden touch-sensitive controls on the outside of the right earcup control volume and playback, while the Bluetooth button, 3.5mm audio input, micro-USB port, and microphone can be found on the bottom of the same earcup. Harman Kardon includes an audio cable and a micro-USB cable for charging, along with a soft carrying case. The headphones come in black, brown, or white.{/exp:char_limit}

China Demands Back Door into Computers, Software

Tech companies hoping to sell computers, smartphones, tablets, and software in China are facing some serious hurdles now that the country is demanding they build back doors into their products, comply with invasive audits, and hand over proprietary and secret source code. The Chinese government is justifying the move by saying it's necessary to ensure western countries aren't spying through technology, but it may also be a ploy to push those companies out in favor of in-country tech makers.

The Mac Observer Spin: China wants hardware and software back doors to access our private and encrypted data, as does the United States and United Kingdom. This is bad for consumers, and won't likely end well.

1Password's update highlights the difference...

An update to 1Password brings time-based one-time passwords (TOTP for short) to its iOS app. A one-time password is typically used as a second element in two-factor authentication (2FA), a subject I’ve written about many times in this column. But, as noted in a sensible and honest post by AgileBits, 1Password’s developer, a second factor isn’t always a second factor.

A TOTP requires a seed code that, when transformed through an algorithm that includes the precise current time, produces a number that’s converted into a short code, typically six digits long. In order to use a TOTP at a site that offers it, you walk through its enrollment process, which involves scanning a two-dimensional QR Code and generating one-time backup or recovery keys. The QR Code graphically represents...

This morning, a number of developers signed in to Apple's iTunes Connect service only to be greeted by a list of apps that didn't belong to them. TechCrunch has a good roundup of tweets from affected developers—it seems that whenever developers signed in with their credentials, they were being granted access to other developers' accounts at random.

As of about noon Eastern today, Apple took the service down to resolve the problem. It also looks like developers won't be able to submit new apps or invite new testers to TestFlight while iTunes Connect is down. Affected developers can check Apple's System Status page for developers for updates while they wait for the problems to be resolved (no other developer services appear to be affected by the outage).

Around the world, there are trees that have been growing for a much longer period of time than famed arbors like Methuselah or General Sherman. Some of these beautiful ancients may not look like much — some appear to be mere saplings, compared to the gigantic redwoods.

Trees have always fascinated me. As a kid, I would climb the oaks in our neighbourhood and sit up there for hours. I still love walking among them and feeling their presence.

The monster iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, and Apple Pay

Om Malik wrote a great piece on the iPhone 6 Plus and also reflected on the upcoming Apple Watch and thoughts on Apple Pay:

It looks like Apple is going to ride the iPhone wave for a while, perhaps right through the launch of the Apple Watch, which I suspect is going to provide the big lift.

Agreed.

That said, I am not bullish on the watch, mostly because when I saw it, the software looked incomplete by a mile. It lacked that usual Apple software pop!

There is no doubt that when Apple introduced the watch, the software wasn’t ready. It’s ready now.

I wish Apple had spent more time making Apple Pay realize its true potential, because it could change how we purchase and thus define a new era for the company.

I believe they are, in the background. Typically, Apple will release something slowly and then it takes off. This is exactly the strategy I see Apple taking with Apple Pay—under promise, over deliver.

It has a date — sort of. And it has a price — mostly. But less than three months before its release, the Apple Watch is still enigmatic in ways that the similarly pre-announced iPhone and iPad were not. Apple still hasn’t said more than one thing (“starting at $349″) about how the 34 different Watch models will be priced, and despite hiring a new team of sales executives from the fashion and watch worlds, no major changes are obvious at the Apple Stores where the watches will be sold.

With year-on-year sales down 18%, and a reduction in average selling price meaning revenue was down 22%.

Redmond has had Outlook clients for the mobile platforms before, but these have been front-ends for the Outlook Web App, Microsoft's HTML front-end to Exchange. The new client is something new: it's based on the Acompli e-mail and calendaring client. Microsoft bought the then 18-month old Acompli late last year for an estimated $200 million.

Announcing the app's availability, former Acompli CEO Javier Soltero, now on the Outlook team, said that Acompli users dip into the app for, on average, 24 seconds at a time. Much of the time, they perform what Microsoft calls e-mail triage: deciding whether an e-mail should be deleted, flagged for follow-up, or merely marked as read. Similarly, meeting invitations can be quickly accepted,...

Apple, Samsung now tied for the title of world'...

The 74.5 million iPhones sold over the last three months of 2014 didn't just help Apple report the highest quarterly profit of any publicly-traded company in history, they also propelled the Cupertino giant into a first-place tie with Samsung as the largest smartphone maker in the world.

Following on the heels of a record-breaking quarter for Apple, Strategy Analytics has crunched the numbers and crowned Apple the king of the smartphone vendors for Q4 2014—or rather, one of the kings. It seems the Cupertino company managed to tie rival Samsung for the title.

Both companies shipped 74.5 million handsets during the quarter, though Samsung still outsold Apple in terms of the annual total by a hefty margin. Those quarterly sales gave both companies an equal marketshare of 19.6%.

Strategy Analytics notes that this is the first time since...

One of the most interesting things from Apple's conference call, however, had to be when Mr. Cook revealed the Rosetta Stone for understanding Apple's timing.

There's a GHOST in Linux's Library


Patches for GHOST, a critical vulnerability in glibc, the Linux GNU C Library, now are available through vendor communities for a variety of Linux server and desktop distributions. Qualys earlier this week reported its discovery of GHOST, a vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely take control of an entire system without having any prior knowledge of system credentials. Qualys security researchers found the GHOST flaw and worked closely with Linux distribution vendors in a coordinated effort to develop a patch for all affected systems.

How Facebook is using autoplaying videos and ad tech...

Scrolling slowly through News Feed, you’ll see a slew of videos. Some are from your friends. Others are ads from brands you like. All of them play automatically. Facebook now sees 3 billion video views a day, a fun fact that could have a huge effect on the network’s bottom line.

More than 50 percent of American Facebook users who visit the network daily watch one video per day, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said in the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call on Wednesday. (It counts as a view if you watch a clip for three seconds or more.) And as Facebook decreases the number of ads it shows, it has to make sure the ads you do see are high-quality, ones that you’ll actually respond to. The network is now commanding 335 percent more money for fewer ads based on the power of its ad targeting tech, which hooks into a level of detail about you that only Facebook (and maybe your best friend) has access to. Video ads, which...

In other words, you can’t actually punch a number in anywhere on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or even Apple’s website. If you have an active iPhone, that device’s phone number automatically gets used…

A law enforcement campaign to compel Google Inc. to disable a feature in its popular Waze traffic app that lets drivers warn others about nearby police activity shifted Wednesday when a sheriffs’ organization openly complained that the app not only puts officers’ lives at risk, it also interferes with the ability to write speeding tickets.

So it’s OK for government officials and corporations to track us but not OK for us to track them?

Tech-Savvy Cubans Build Their Own Private Internet


Because Cuba's government makes it difficult for all but a handful of Cubans to access the Internet, people in Havana and other parts of the country reportedly have linked thousands of PCs to create an informal network known as "StreetNet," or "SNet" for short. The network was built with commercially available equipment. The PCs are connected by WiFi antennae and Ethernet cables strung across streets and over rooftops. SNet's main uses appear to be sharing gossip and news, accessing popular TV shows and movies, and playing online games.

How America got addicted to road salt — and why it’s...

Vox:

There are huge benefits to salting the roads. One 1992 study found that spreading salt can reduce accidents by 87 percent during and after a snowstorm.But road salt also comes with major downsides: Salt is corrosive, chewing through cars, trucks, concrete, and steel bridges. Worse still, when all that salt dissolves and washes away, it steadily accumulates in rivers and streams. Other times, moose and elk get attracted to the salt and wander onto roads, raising the risk of crashes.

We have similar issues here in Canada with road salt and its affect on cars and the environment. That last sentence came to light for me while riding my motorcycle in the Banff National Park. I came around a corner and there was a herd of massive elk in the middle of the road, licking the salt off the pavement. It created a very high Pucker Factor, to say the least.

When Apple released WatchKit in November giving developers time to prepare apps for the upcoming Apple Watch, it included the custom San Francisco font displayed on the Watch. Shortly after, instructions appeared on GitHub showing how to install the San Francisco font from the Apple Watch onto a Mac with OS X Yosemite since Apple changed the system font from Lucida Grande to Helvetica.

Unfortunately (but unsurprisingly), it appears that someone (Apple?) has forced that project to be removed from GitHub citing copyright issues since Apple owns the San Francisco font and distributes it only for use with Apple Watch,...

How one of the best films at Sundance was shot using...

The Verge:

Plenty of amateur films have been shot using iPhones, but by all reports, this is the first movie at the Sundance Film Festival to be shot almost entirely on an Apple device. It was a decision that indie writer and director Sean Baker made to accommodate the film’s small budget. But you’d never guess the camera, to look at it: Tangerine was shot in a widescreen, 2:35:1 aspect ratio, and its camera zooms through the streets of LA with a fluidity you’d never expect from a handheld device. And yet despite his camera of choice, Baker says the iPhone made for a good partner. “It was surprisingly easy,” Baker says. “We never lost any footage.”

Another interesting story about the functionality and versatility of the iPhone.

USA Today:

On Jan. 28, 1985, at A&M Recording Studios in Hollywood, following the American Music Awards, more than 40 artists gathered to record a song Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson had written to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa. Most of that show’s winners — including Cyndi Lauper, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, the Pointer Sisters, Kenny Rogers and the Jacksons — participated.

This was a pretty big deal at the time. Part of the magic is that they managed to keep the whole production a complete secret until the song was released.
