iPhone 8 dummy unit shown off in hands-on video

Last month we saw what may be the closest thing so far to the iPhone 8 design expected to be introduced later this year, and today what appears to be the same dummy unit has surfaced again in a hands-on video. The dummy unit shows off the edge-to-edge 5.8-inch display and taller body rumored for the iPhone 8, although this particular unit appears to have a little heft to it too.

Apple and Nokia bury the hatchet

A litigation brawl between Nokia and Apple over intellectual property has ended just five months after it started.

The companies said today they have settled all outstanding litigation and agreed to a patent license. While exact financial terms are confidential, Apple will be making an up-front cash payment to Nokia, followed by additional payments over the course of the agreement.

"This is a meaningful agreement between Nokia and Apple," Maria Varsellona, Chief Legal Officer at Nokia, said in a...

How to remove a Windows Boot Camp installation from...

In a previous tutorial we showed you how to create a macOS Boot Camp partition for installing Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro. The process, while not difficult, can be slightly time consuming, especially if you have a slow Internet connection for downloading Windows 10.

Outside of the time it takes, another downside associated with creating a Boot Camp partition is that it can take up a significant amount of space on your primary drive. Since some Macs are fairly limited when it comes to internal storage space, having a large Boot Camp partition can make it tricky to manage storage space in macOS.

In this follow-up tutorial, we show you how to remove the Boot Camp partition from your Mac, which allows your primary macOS partition to reclaim its space. Unlike the Boot Camp creation + Windows 10 installation process, removing a Boot Camp partition couldn’t be...

There’s a $399 3D Printer on Kickstarter

3D printing is poised to be affordable by a lot more people, and there’s a project on Kickstarter speaking to this trend. It’s called Neva, and it’s a $399 3D printer from established 3D printer manufacturer Dagoma. Actually, there are $299 Early Bird pledge level available as of this writing that will net you a Neva, but the retail price for the device is set at $399. In addition to being inexpensive, it’s designed to be operated with just one button. They’re also made in California, and the bases themselves are 3D printed. The video below is a tad weird in that the narrator tells you lots of things and then says, “but we won’t” tell you that thing. It’s interesting anyway. The project blew past its funding goal of $50,000 in a few hours (earning more than $10,000 in pledges while I wrote this Cool Stuff Found). That speaks to the desire that many people have to be able to 3D print on their own desk.

It no longer appears likely that Apple's overseas earnings can be repatriated back to the United States at more favorable tax rates this year, as plans for tax reform--including deep cuts to health care spending aimed at enabling a huge tax cut--have been delayed. On the other hand, unsettling political news is also having an adverse affect on the US dollar, creating an unanticipated side effect: a more favorable currency exchange environment for Apple's foreign earnings.

Which iPhone upgrade program is the best?

While Apple has a relatively small number of iPhone variants to choose from compared to many smartphone manufacturers, the amount of ways to buy an iPhone can be overwhelming. With most carriers in the U.S. moving away from two-year contracts and subsidized devices, full-price or installment plans are the primary ways to purchase an iPhone.

Since all installment plans or iPhone upgrade programs from the major U.S. carriers and Apple offer 0% interest, these options can be a good fit for a lot of consumers. While many of these plans are relatively similar, they all have their differences. Follow along for a detailed breakdown to find out which iPhone upgrade program is best for you.

SoftRAID 5.6 with Easy Setup released for macOS

OWC Holdings, a division of OWC, has launched SoftRAID 5.6, an upgrade of the RAID software featuring SoftRAID Easy Setup­. The feature is designed to make it easy to create a RAID system (redundant array of independent disks) from scratch to keep your files protected against disk failure and achieve faster data access. 

SoftRAID’s Easy Setup guides less technical users through the process of creating SoftRAID volumes, automating the process of configuring disks and making recommendations to help users setup their SoftRAID system. All users have to do is decide what the RAID volume will be used for and how much space to use (with hints from the application) -- SoftRAID Easy Setup does the rest.

Additional new features in SoftRAID include the ability to monitor USB and FireWire disks for failure and impending failure and translation to Simplified Chinese (for both the application and documentation), in addition to the 5 other languages SoftRAID already supports:...

Apple is testing a next-generation wireless technology dubbed “millimeter wave” that could potentially radically increase the speed and bandwidth of a cellular connection, according to Business Insider.

Millimeter wave, which is also known as extremely high frequency (EHF)  or very high frequency (VHF) by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), can be used for high-speed wireless broadband communications. Millimeter wave is an undeveloped band of spectrum that can be used in a broad range of products and services like high speed, point-to-point wireless local area networks (WLANs) and broadband access. In telecommunications, millimeter wave is used for a variety of services on mobile and wireless networks, as it allows for higher data rates up to 10 Gbps.

External Link: Unrelated Supreme Court Decision...

Since the 1990s, the Eastern District of Texas has been the preferred hunting ground for patent trolls. Judges in that district have been friendly to those who hold patents they never intend to use outside of litigation, so nearly 45 percent of patent infringement suits were filed there in 2015. But thanks to a unanimous Supreme Court ruling, the Eastern District of Texas’s time in the patent litigation limelight may be coming to an end. In TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods Group Brands, the Supreme Court ruled that defendants should face patent litigation in the state in which they’re incorporated. For instance, if you wanted to sue Apple or many other tech companies for patent infringement, you’d have to do so in California. Courts in other states won’t be as friendly to patent trolls, so this seemingly unrelated Supreme Court decision may have the side effect of reducing frivolous patent lawsuits.

Feature Request: iPad Workouts Dashboard for Apple...

I sometimes use my iPad at the gym to watch videos or read iBooks to pass time while exercising with the elliptical or treadmill. The tablet form factor is sleek and doesn’t draw attention to itself, and the iPad usually lays over whatever screen the gym equipment offers.

This works well because I usually ignore the heart rate trackers and progress indicators on exercise equipment and just rely on my Apple Watch for workout data. I glance at my wrist to check my progress and view metrics while using the iPad for entertainment.

Over the weekend I used a hotel gym that offered exercise machines with large screens and an easy-to-use interface, however, that made me think of how the iPad could be used for more…

Review: Mytek Brooklyn Digital-to-Analog Converter

Some years ago, the electronics market could be cleanly divided into "professional" and "consumer" gear. Consumer devices were cheaper and prettier, but their pro counterparts did more and were more reliable. Consumers then started to develop a taste for pro-level gadgets, regardless of whether they "needed" the extra power. Manufacturers responded by creating a new class of device — the "prosumer" model — which has grown in popularity to the point that nobody really questions whether high school kids "need" Macbook Pros. The Brooklyn DAC from MyTek is a little like the Macbook Pro in that it is well-designed, feature-packed, beautiful, and expensive. We think it's awesome.

‘The Spy Who Loved Me’

Chris Murphy, writing for CNN back in 2013 on the “greatest James Bond scene of all time”:

Despite this wealth of choice, a series of Bond experts, and one
of the film’s legendary producers, are in no doubt as to which
scene should be anointed the best ever.

And given the recurring role that skiing has played throughout the
life of Bond, it should comes as no surprise our panel’s chosen
encounter occurs on the slopes. “I would argue the most iconic
sequence is in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, when Bond shot straight off
the edge of a cliff at Baffin Island in Canada,” Ajay Chowdhury,
editor of the James Bond International Fan Club, told CNN.

“We saw him fall and fall, and when the Union Jack parachute
opened up and the theme tune kicked in, the world cheered.

Earlier this year IKEA announced a collection of smart lights named (in the usual IKEA manner) TRÅDFRI. Now the company has announced that HomeKit support is on the way for those lights.

As translated from the Swedish press release: 

“IKEA smart lighting is a Plug & Play solution, which means that no new electrical wiring and no electrician are needed. All it takes is replacing a light source with a TRÅDFRI LED light source.

Nokia Uses Lawsuit To Make Apple Its Friend

Apple has settled a patent dispute with Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia and agreed to buy more of its network products and services. The deal means Nokia will get bigger royalties from Apple for using its mobile phone patents, helping offset the impact of waning demand for its mobile network hardware. Nokia's shares were up by seven percent following the announcement. WSJ puts things into perspective: Nokia's deal with Apple follows a highly unusual playbook: using a lawsuit to win business from your adversary (could be paywalled). When the first iPhone was unveiled a decade ago, Apple became a major competitor to the Finnish group, which was then the world's leading mobile-phone maker. As Nokia's business dwindled, the companies became legal antagonists. Now they are set to become business partners. The settlement announced Tuesday involves Apple paying Nokia a lump sum plus royalties for each device it sells using Nokia's technology. This is broadly the same kind of...

But like the PC wars of the 90s, Apple isn’t content with such a slim slice of the market. While it has had a Move to iOS app in the Play Store for a while now, Apple is now taking the fight directly to Android users with a new campaign devoted to switching.

As such, ‘The Bell’ (via Korea Herald) is reporting that Apple has agreed a deal with Samsung to supply OLED panels for the ‘iPhone 9’. The report claims the phones will include larger 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch OLED displays …

Really, Huawei, you’re calling your new devices ‘...

Huawei has introduced a trio of new MateBooks laptops. Yep, that’s the name. One would almost think that Huawei wants folks to confuse their devices with “MacBooks.”

The MateBook X, MateBook E and MateBook D will begin shipping over the summer. They’re, respectively, a 13.1-inch laptop, a hybrid tablet/laptop device, and a 15.6-inch notebook. 

They may be good gadgets, they may not. But Huawei loses points for the name. And if they’re called MateBooks, they’re mates to what? Desktop systems? As in the Australian use of mate for a friend? If its the latter, that’s strange since Huawei is based in China.

And guess what colors they’re available in: Prestige Gold, Space Gray, and Rose Gold. Sound familiar?

Ikea entering the HomeKit smart lighting business

Ben Lovejoy, 9to5Mac:

Smart bulbs from the market leader Philips start at $25 per bulb for white and $50 for color, a price that soon adds up if you’re looking to fit out your entire home.

But all that is set to change in the summer as Ikea has announced that its smart lighting system will be HomeKit-compatible as of the summer. Ikea’s smart bulbs start at just $11.99.

And:

The existing product line is limited to white bulbs, but once you’ve bought the gateway for $79.99 (which includes two bulbs), you can add smart bulbs at prices ranging from $11.99 for a 1000-lumen E28 bulb, through $14.99 for a 400-lumen E12, $17.99 for a 980-lumen E27 to a $19.99 G10 spotlight. Dimmers and motion sensors are also available at similarly affordable pricing.

Ikea getting in the game brings down prices, legitimizes the sector, and will help popularize the concept of adding smart bulbs to your home.

Apple patent filing hints at iPhones (and Macs?)...

There’s more evidence that the Apple Pencil will come to the iPhone in a new patent filing (number 9,648,7040) for “devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces wth a stylus.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes the use of touch-sensitive surfaces as input devices for computers and other electronic computing devices has increased significantly in recent years. Touch-sensitive surfaces include touchpads and touch-screen displays.

User interfaces can be manipulated with either finger or stylus inputs. Apple says that finger inputs are more common than stylus inputs, in part because existing methods that use styluses are “cumbersome and inefficient.” Obviously, the company feels the Apple Pencil helps overcome such limitations. And the patent mentions use of the device with not only iPads, but also iPhones and iPad touches. Interestingly, it also mentioned the macOS.

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent &...

‘Big and loud’ not the intention with flagship D.C....

Washington Business Journal:

Apple representatives say their plans for the historic Carnegie Library will respect and improve the building’s historic architecture.

“Some of you may say ‘Apple! I don’t want to see another glass box. We had enough of that with the Spy Museum,'” Apple development lead Michael Brown said of the International Spy Museum’s failed 2014 plan for the Carnegie Library.

And:

Brown, along with reps from architect Beyer Blinder Belle, gave a closer glimpse at Apple’s plans during a National Capital Planning Commission historic preservation meeting last week. Apple has a letter of intent with Events D.C., the District’s sports and convention arm that runs the building, to operate a global flagship store in the 63,000-square-foot building. Apple would take up most of the circa-1903 building, sharing space with the Historical Society of Washington and Events D.C.

I do find it interesting that Apple will be sharing this space....

Apple’s self-driving car spotted on freeway

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

For the last few weeks, Apple has been testing its autonomous driving software in three Lexus RX450h SUVs, which have been photographed around the San Francisco Bay Area. This morning, MacRumors reader Andrew was able to capture some video of one of the SUVs, giving us our closest look yet at the vehicles Apple is using to test its system.

Not sure how much we can draw from this. I think it’d be more interesting to get a closeup look at the camera rigging and the computers inside the car. I suspect we’ll eventually have WWDC sessions that focus on self-driving car APIs.

Gartner: iPhone sales were flat year-over-year

Global sales of smartphones to end users totaled 380 million units in the first quarter of 2017, a 9.1%  increase over the first quarter of 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. Mobile phone buyers are spending more to get a better phone, resulting in the rise in average selling prices of types of phone, according to the research group.

Samsung's smartphone sales declined 3.1% in the first quarter of 2017. Sales of iPhones were flat, which led to a drop in market share year-over-year from 14.8% global marketshare in the first quarter of 2016 to 13.7% in the first quarter of 2017. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) expects the upcoming “iPhone 8” to reverse this trend.

Chinese manufacturers such as Huawei, Oppo and Vivo have seen their combined global smartphone market share in the first quarter of 2017 account for 24%, up seven percentage points year-on-year.

iPhone SE tops customer satisfaction survey

Apple is still in the lead among cell phone manufacturers with an American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) score of 81 (out of 100). This year, the top smartphone brand is the 4-inch iPhone SE with a score of 87. 

The Galaxy S6 edge+ ties the iPhone 7 Plus in second place (86), while the Galaxy S6 edge takes third (85). Motorola’s Moto G and the LG G4 trail behind with scores of 75 and 73, respectively. The lowest-rated model, however, belongs to Samsung – the Galaxy Core Prime (70).

“Over the past few years, the general trend for smartphones has been toward larger screens,” says ACSI Managing Director David VanAmburg. “But apparently, consumers were craving a new iteration of a smaller, less expensive phone as the iPhone SE – Apple’s first update to a 4-inch phone since 2013 – comes in first in ACSI this year.”

How to force the Finder to restart in macOS Sierra

Represented by the blue icon with the smiling face, the macOS Sierra Finder is the home base for your Mac. You use it to organize and access almost everything on your Mac, including documents, images, movies, and any other files you have. However, sometimes you need to restart it if it's acting ornery or if you’re installed an app that requires a restart. To do so:

  • Open the Finder.
  • Click the  menu and hold Shift on your keyboard.
  • Click Force Quit Finder.

Or you can:

  • Hold the ⌥ (alt/option) key on your keyboard.
  • Right click on the Finder icon in your Dock.
  • Click Relaunch.
