Fraudulent transactions attempted at Chicago Apple...

Six people from New York state have been charged in "an organized criminal enterprise" during which fraudulent transactions allegedly were attempted at an Apple store (pictured) in Deer Park, Illinois, Lake County authorities told the Chicago Tribune.

Christopher Covelli, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, said the suspects would fly into O'Hare International Airport, rent a car and go to Apple stores to attempt to make purchases with stolen identities and stolen credit cards. Between Wednesday and Sunday, six people allegedly tried to commit fraud at the store. The six were arrested and charged with multiple felonies. Authorities successfully recovered over $10,000 worth of stolen Apple products from the alleged suspects.

Bid now on the Celebration Apple I, the computer...

From the Celebration Apple 1 auction site:

The “Celebration” Apple-1 is an original Apple-1 pre-NTI board that has many unique features, period correct power supply, original Apple-1 ACI cassette board (also populated with Robinson Nugent sockets), early Apple-1 BASIC cassettes, original marketing material, and the most complete documentation set of the known Apple-1 boards.

The “Celebration” Apple-1 is extremely rare not only because of the scarcity of Apple-1 computers, but according to Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, no known PCB boards of this type were ever sold to the public. At this time, this is the only known Apple-1 to show the signs of starting out as a blank original-run board and not part of the two known production runs, so this board appears to be unique from all other known Apple-1 boards.

The “Celebration” Apple-1 was authenticated by Apple Expert and Historian, Corey Cohen. Mr. Cohen believes The “Celebration” Apple-1 has the...

FBI Launches Probe Into DNC Email Hack


The FBI on Monday confirmed it has opened an investigation into claims that the Wikileaks email dump of nearly 20,000 DNC emails over the weekend might be linked to the Russian government. Hackers connected to Russian intelligence agencies allegedly have been working to help tilt the U.S. presidential election. Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, made a bombshell allegation on Sunday, claiming that the hack of thousands of DNC emails that revealed efforts to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign was the work of Russian intelligence.

Art View is worth a look for Creative Cloud users

If you're a Creative Cloud or Creative Suite user, you should check out Code Line's Art View, a Quick Look enhancement that offers "quick answers to common questions."

It allows graphic designers to preview, inspect, and reveal dependent font and image files from within Apple's Quick Look preview feature. Art View works independent of other applications, so users who don't have graphics applications installed are still able to take advantage of its features.

The tool provides users with previews of design files that normally aren't compatible with Quick Look. It also provides info like what fonts, images and colors were used, and reveals dependent files.

Graphics files are visual by nature. By expanding the types of files that can be seen in Finder windows, dialog boxes and other applications, Art View helps improve the workflow of designers and people that work with them.

Art View is available as a free, 15-day demo and is available for purchase online...

Google Maps continues attempt to tempt back iOS...

While Apple Maps got off to a rocky start, with many of us opting to use Google Maps instead, it did manage to gradually win back our confidence – with three times as many users as its Google rival by the end of last year. But Google is working hard to tempt back iOS users with an improved user-interface and a new way to highlight where the action is when visiting a new city.

The most visible difference is that many road outlines have been replaced with solid color. This small change makes a surprisingly big difference to the clarity of the maps, as seen above. But it’s the new ‘areas of interest’ feature that may provide the greatest temptation to switch apps …

A study by Kansas State University says that people who spend more than six hours sitting each day are at higher risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Which means you need to be taking more standing breaks (at least once every 30 minutes) -- and perhaps using "healthier" chairs such as the BalanceBall from GaiamThe research involved 63,048 middle-aged men but US scientists say the findings are likely to also apply to women.

Chairs such as the BalanceBall Chair are designed to provide core strengthening, comfort and ergonomic back support and help to improve spinal alignment and reduce nerve compression. Studies on the benefits are inconclusive (see http://tinyurl.com/3kfkvrp), but if you decide to give one a try, the Gaiam product is reasonably price and well-designed.

Apple's Electric Car Project To Be Led By Bob...

An anonymous reader writes: Long-time Apple executive Bob Mansfield will lead Apple's electric car project, according to the Wall Street Journal. TechCrunch reports: "Mansfield stepped down from the Apple executive board in 2013, yet stayed around the company to work on, what Apple called, special projects. In this role he was reporting directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook. One of Mansfield's projects turned out to be the Apple Watch. Now it seems he will head-up Apple's car ambitions -- a project Apple has yet to publicly confirm. During Mansfield's tenure he lead the engineering teams responsible for numerous products including the MacBook Air, iMac, and the iPad."

The Case For a Shatterproof iPhone

The iPhone’s display is made of Corning’s gorilla glass. It’s durable, but not indestructible. As a result, most iPhone customers (try to) protect their investment with a case. Should Apple try to make the iPhone shatterproof?  Is it possible? Will a case be, someday, unnecessary? Or is an iPhone that can be damaged preferable in some respects?  Page two of Friday’s Particle Debris explores.

Ken Ray is the host and producer of several notable podcasts, including the Mac OS Ken shows. It’s not surprising that Ken started out in radio broadcasting. Early on, he was a behind the scenes person at a small radio station in Boston. There, he became operations director and learned a lot about radio tech without the on-air disc jockey pressure. He learned the station’s digital editing suite, and that led to producing some commercials and radio shows. Later, at ZDTV radio, he had the opportunity to interview some high-profile people: Jesse Jackson and Ray Kurzweil. It’s not hard to see how, after he fell into the world of Apple, he brought all his skills to bear into a whole suite of modern-day podcasts, including work with Rod Roddenberry, Gene’s son.

We noted in our coverage this morning that a two-week period typically occurs the time between the iPhone announcement and release date, which suggests a late August to early September Apple event assuming the September 16th date is accurate. So how does that date compare to past iPhone releases? Below we’ve compared every...

iOS 10 includes a lot of new flagship features, from iMessage apps to a Siri SDK, as well as a lot of small tweaks and enhancements. The WebKit blog is highlighting one of these small feature changes, which makes watching animated GIFs on the web way better with iOS 10.

A lot of GIFs today are actually encoded as videos as GIF itself is a very bad format for animated content despite its popularity. However, Apple has imposed many restrictions on how videos behave in iPhone Safari such as requiring user interaction for playback to start until now. Up until iOS 9, many websites displayed GIFs as elements but were held back by the limitations Apple enforced. With iOS 10, silent videos can now autoplay in the page, perfect for animated GIFs …

However, what has not been widely discussed is the impact of all this on the developers of augmented reality apps.

Two of the biggest barriers to having a personal weather station in your backyard have just disappeared.

It’s great for installing the OS on multiple Macs, because you don’t have to download the ~5GB installer onto each computer, and it serves as a handy emergency disk if your Mac is experiencing problems.

Forget iPhone 7 rumors! Let’s move on to the 2017...

The rumor mill is certainly in overdrive lately. We haven’t even seen the “iPhone 7” (or is it the iPhone 6SE?), and there new rumors about 2017’s “iPhone 8” (or will it be the “iPhone 7”). According to DigiTimes, next year’s Apple smartphone — which, for simplicity’s sake, I’ll simply refer to as “iPhone 2017” — may sport an iris sensor.

A successor to Touch ID, it would allow your smartphone to “recognize” you by your eye rather than your fingerprint. The iris is a thin, circular structure in the eye, responsible for controlling the diameter and size of the pupil and thus the amount of light reaching the retina. Eye color is defined by that of the iris.

And since we’re talking about the iPhone 2017, it will reportedly sport a major design overhaul whereas this year’s model won’t. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks it will have a curved glass body and will switch...

Report: Apple special projects guru Bob Mansfield...

Everyone wondering what exactly is going on with Apple’s rumored car project will rejoice at the latest development: Apple is reportedly bringing back legendary hardware engineering head Bob Mansfield to oversee Project Titan and the development of an electric vehicle.

Mansfield started working for Steve Jobs in 1999 and was still employed by Apple but had stepped away after developing the MacBook Air, iMac, and iPad. Those successful products are plenty for one lifetime. Mansfield had transitioned from leading the hardware engineering department to overseeing special projects three years ago. One of those projects? The Apple Watch. Mansfield is now back in the swing of things after some time away, according to the Wall Street Journal.

67 years of Lego sets

There are many of us—errr, people—who build stuff with Legos at all ages. Having grown up with loads of hand-me-down Legos (and having a Lego Wall-E sitting on my desk right now), I started to wonder how Legos evolved from the sets I remember from my childhood to what they are today.

Everyone loves Lego.

Suspect Required To Unlock iPhone Using Touch ID in...

An anonymous reader shares a report on 9to5Mac: A second federal judge has ruled that a suspect can be compelled to unlock their iPhone using their fingerprint in order to give investigators access to data which can be used as evidence against them. The first time this ever happened in a federal case was back in May, following a District Court ruling in 2014. The legal position of forcing suspects to use their fingerprints to unlock devices won't be known with certainty until a case reaches the U.S. Supreme Court, but lower court rulings so far appear to establish a precedent which is at odds with that concerning passcodes. Most constitutional experts appear to believe that the Fifth Amendment prevents a suspect from being compelled to reveal a password or passcode, as this would amount to forced self-incrimination -- though even this isn't certain. Fingerprints, in contrast, have traditionally been viewed as 'real or physical evidence,' meaning that police are entitled to take...

Apple turns over car project to Bob Mansfield

Bob Mansfield had stepped back from a day-to-day role at the company a few years ago, after leading the hardware engineering development of products including the MacBook Air laptop computer, the iMac desktop computer, and the iPad tablet. Apple now has Mr. Mansfield running the company’s secret autonomous, electric-vehicle initiative, code-named Project Titan, the people said.

Mansfield is a very smart guy and is well respected inside and outside of Apple.

Bob Mansfield bio from his former position at Apple

Bob Mansfield was always a happy face at Apple events in the past, when he showed off some of the amazing hardware that his team had invented. Mansfield retired a few years ago, and now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple has asked him back to lead the "Project Titan" team that's developing the fabled Apple Car.

Mansfield's former domain included the hardware engineering of the MacBook Air, the iMac, and the iPad. Now he'll be running the show for Apple's autonomous electric vehicle project. Apple hasn't officially spilled the beans about Mansfield's return, but Apple employees apparently noticed recently that all senior Project Titan managers were reporting to Mansfield. 

This is a good sign for Apple, if not for Mansfield. The last week saw reports that the intro date of the Apple...

Rumor: Apple to release next-gen iPhone on Friday,...

The latest iPhone 7 rumors are in, complete with reporter and leak enthusiast Evan Blass claiming the next-gen handset will be released the week of September 12th. Blass specifically cited that the new iPhone will hit the shelves on Friday, September 16th.

This would put it a bit earlier than usual, as the previous generation of iPhone was released on September 25th last year, the iPhone 6 debuted on September 19th in 2014 and the 2013 iPhone 5s was September 20th.

With a sooner-than-usual release date for retail availability, this also pushes the expected date for Apple’s media press announcement.

The typical window is a two-week wait between announcement and release. This is not feasible in the 2016 calendar assuming a Friday...

How Pokémon Go took 20 years to become an overnight...

This is the story about the ten levels John Hanke had to achieve in his life in order to create Pokémon Go.

Here are the first four levels:

1st Level up: In 1996, while still a student, John co-created the very first MMO (massively multiplayer online game) called ‘Meridian 59’. He sold the game to 3DO to move on to a bigger passion: mapping the world.

2nd Level up: In 2000, John launched ‘Keyhole’ to come up with a way to link maps with aerial photography, and create the first online, GPS-linked 3D aerial map of the world.

3rd Level up: In 2004, Google bought Keyhole and with John’s help, turned Keyhole into what is now ‘Google Earth’. That’s when John decided to focus at creating GPS-based games.

4th Level up: John ran the Google Geo team from 2004 to 2010, creating Google Maps and Google Street View. During this time, he collected the team that would later create Pokémon Go.

∞ iOS 10’s built in magnifying glass

One of my favorite features of iOS 10 is the built-in magnifying glass, super useful if you need to read some small print or get a close-up look at something tiny.

Before iOS 10’s Magnifier, to get a close-up look at some small print, say, I would open the camera, do my best to focus close in, take a picture, then hop over to Photos, and pinch out to zoom in on the details. That is now no longer necessary.

If you’ve got access to the iOS 10 beta, give this a try:

  • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility. You should see an item called Magnifier.
  • Tap Magnifier, tap the switch to turn it on, then exit settings.
  • Now, triple click the home button to launch Magnifier (You might also see an alert asking you to choose between Assistive Touch and Magnifier – Tap Magnifier).

Just like a magnifying glass, move your iPhone or iPad over the thing you’re trying to magnify....

Apple has agreed to lease more than 40,000 square feet of office space in Bengaluru, India, where the company plans to set up a development center, reports The Economic Times, quoting three unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

ARM: The $32B Pivot and Revolution

Jean-Louis Gassée, writing for Monday Note:

In the old days, circuits were prototyped by hand using a primitive breadboard. After the circuit was debugged and pronounced fit, it was translated into masks for printed circuit boards.

As integrated circuits grew to comprise thousands and then millions of logic elements, breadboards were virtualized: The circuit-to-be was designed on a computer, just as we model a building using architectural Computer Assisted Design (CAD).

A multibillion industry of software modules that could be plugged into one’s own circuit specifications soon emerged. Companies such as Synopsys, Cadence, and Mentor Graphics offered circuit design tools, and an ecosystem of third-party developers offered complementary libraries for graphics, networking, sensors… The end result is a System On a Chip (SOC) that’s sent off to semiconductor manufacturing companies commonly called foundries.

This was the fertile ground on which ARM has...

External Link: Verizon to Buy Yahoo for $4.8 Billion

Long-suffering Yahoo will sell its core business to Verizon Communications for $4.8 billion, a far cry from the $44.6 billion that Microsoft offered in 2008 and that Yahoo’s board rebuffed. Yahoo shareholders will retain roughly $41 billion in investments in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, plus a portfolio of about 3000 patents valued at about $1 billion. Yahoo began as a Web directory in 1994, later moving into search and then content, but with some stumbles and competition from the likes of Google, Yahoo got lost in the weeds. Marissa Mayer, an early Google employee and later high-ranking executive, was hired as CEO in 2012, but even bold initiatives like the purchase of Tumblr couldn’t stop Yahoo’s downward spiral. Verizon acquired AOL a little over a year ago, and the company has said that it will integrate Yahoo with AOL. It’s the end of an era, and we’re curious to see what Verizon will do with the Yahoo properties, notably Flickr, Tumblr, and Yahoo Finance.

Apple retained sixth place among laptop shipments in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, according to new data from the IDC research group, trailing HP, Lenovo, Dell, ASUS, and Acer.

New MacBook Pros are expected this fall and should reinvigorate Apple’s sales. Overall, personal computer shipments in the region (dubbed EMEA) performed above expectations, reaching 16.1 million units in the second quarter of 2016 — a 4.7% year-over-year decrease, notes IDC.

Laptops in EMEA posted good performance, stabilizing at -1.7%, according to the research group. In fact, notebook shipments in Western Europe went up by 4.1%, driven by the commercial segment that registered a 10.5% increase. This brought the growth of EMEA commercial notebooks into positive territory with a 3.7% year-over-year growth. In contrast, the consumer notebook market continued to decline. And desktop computers posted a 10.0% decline overall, in line with...
