Google debuted its own streaming service in 2013 as Google Play Music All Access, after Google Play music's initial debut in 2011. All Access was initially priced at $9.99, but in June of 2015, Google unsurprisingly unveiled an ad-supported, free version to differentiate itself from Apple's subscription Music service.

Rumors: New Apple TV to debut September 9th, ship in...

The Apple rumor mill is currently abuzz with chatter about a revamped Apple TV, and thanks to a new report from 9to5Mac, we’re getting a better sense of what to expect.

According to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, the new Apple TV will cost either $149 or $199, depending on what Apple’s executive team settles on, and will ship sometime in October. Gurman also says the current Apple TV model will stick around as a low-end option, since the new Apple TV won’t be price-competitive with streaming devices from Roku, Amazon, and others.

Previous reports indicated a seriously revamped Apple TV is on its way. Earlier this month, 9to5Mac reported that the new Apple TV will come with a retooled remote, built-in Siri, a new user interface, more powerful innards, and support for third-party apps, among other...

BMW: all models electric within decade

NASDAQ:

German luxury car giant Bayerische Motoren Werke AG or BMW Group is looking to go all-electric over the next 10 years due to the upcoming stricter carbon emission laws. Virtually every BMW model would be converted to electric drivetrains, including range-extending engines and plug-in hybrids.

The transition will see even the company’s top-selling 3 Series sport sedans turned into plug-in hybrids.

The company is weary of the stringent European Union regulations that greatly reduce the average carbon emissions permitted from road vehicles. They are said to be tougher than either North American or Chinese emission levels.

Some are calling this the “death of the internal combustion engine”. That is unlikely to happen any time soon but electric is the future. BMW is just getting out ahead of it.

Rough mockup of fourth Apple TV vs. third Apple TV by Michael Steeber

According to sources, the fourth-generation Apple TV will be priced below $200, and is on track to become available in October. Apple executives are apparently still finalizing the price of the revamped living room device, but the latest options call for a starting price point of either $149 or $199, both higher than the...

Spigen piggybacks on Apple event hype by selling ‘...

The iPhone accessories market is a competitive industry and companies will do anything to get ahead. Case manufacturer Spigen has put itself out there by already promoting iPhone 6S cases on its website and selling them on Amazon, weeks ahead of Apple’s official unveiling of the new phone.

Obviously, as the iPhone 6S exterior design is the same as the iPhone 6, most iPhone 6 cases should fit the new phones so advertising ‘iPhone 6S exclusive cases’ is more of a PR play than anything. The company is also teasing Rose Gold colored iPhones on its website, pictured above....

TIDAL blames Apple for banning stream of Drake...

As part of a charity music event raising money for children affected by Hurricane Katrina, Apple Music rival TIDAL streamed the event live on its website. However, when Drake took the stage to perform his set, the stream was abruptly paused. A message from TIDAL said that Apple had banned Drake from allowing his performance to be broadcast online, with TIDAL saying that Apple is “interfering with artistry” and apologizing for the “big brother” influence.

TIDAL made similar claims on its Twitter feed but it turns out these claims are simply untrue. Although it is true that Apple has an exclusivity deal with Drake for his new album, the contract does not stop Drake from streaming live performances....

A FreeBSD "Spork" With Touches of NeXT and...

There are a lot of open source operating systems out there; being open source, they lend themselves to forks, clones or near clones, and friendly offshoots. There are even services to let you customize, download, and (if you choose) bulk-install your own OS based on common components. Phoronix notes a new project called NeXTBSD that might turn more heads than most new open source OSes, in part because of the developers behind it, and in part because of the positive thoughts many people have toward the aesthetics of NeXTSTEP and Mac OS X. (And while it might be a fork of FreeBSD, the developers would rather call it a spork, instead.)

NeXTBSD was announced last week by Jordan Hubbard and Kip Macy at the Bay Area FreeBSD Users Group (BAFUG). NeXTBSD / FreeBSD X is based on the FreeBSD-CURRENT kernel while adding in Mach IPC, Libdispatch, notifyd, asld, launchd, and other components derived from Apple's open-source code for OS X. The basic launchd/notifyd/asld/libdispatch stack...

Come September, Apple TV Will Outshine the iPhone


About Apple's September event... Apple's annual September media event is an oxymoron -- it's become almost entirely predictable. One year it introduces a major new iPhone redesign and the next it offers incremental iPhone improvements. And make no mistake about it, despite last year's Apple Watch debut, at the core of the September event is the critically important iPhone. The obvious question is, what will be the special new feature to make it event-worthy? Answer: There won't be one. There will be several smaller improvements this year.

Google undermining Apple’s planned iOS 9 security

Those settings, which are slated to arrive when Apple launches its iOS 9 operating system in September, will require all content that arrives on an iPhone (via apps, ads or otherwise) to use an encryption setting known as “https.” The setting ensures that third parties can’t read or track what users are doing on their phones.

In a blog post this week, Google told AdMob users to get ready for the new Apple setting. But if they’re not prepared, Google said, they can use a few lines of code to override it.

It looks like 16 gigabytes will continue to remain the low end of storage for Apple’s next-gen iPhone.

The image comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer and matches analysis of iPhone 6S components obtained by 9to5Mac back in June, which showed Apple using 16 GB memory chips in preproduction units.

It was initially thought that Apple would bump the low end’s storage up appreciably, although early builds of iOS 9 indicate that the new operating system is more efficient with its storage space.

Apple takes Washington

Politico:

A private conference in Washington with the attorney general (in itself a rarity for many tech magnates) would have been unthinkable for Cook’s irascible predecessor, Steve Jobs, who actively disdained D.C. Cook, much as he sought to shirk Jobs’ shadow as CEO, had also endeavored quietly to rethink his company’s relationship with the nation’s capital, becoming a leader not only ready to engage its power brokers but challenge them openly when it mattered most.

Watching Cook in his dealings with Washington has been fascinating precisely because it’s something Steve Jobs hated and wouldn’t do. Cook seems more open and able to navigate the issues.

Lifehacker:

People say that “everyone should work retail or service at least once in their lives.” I couldn’t agree more. Like many people, some of my first jobs were retail service gigs. One in a department store, another in a bookstore. I’ve long since moved on, but I learned a lot about the nature of people—and how that battle between selfishness and empathy is something we all struggle with, every day.

I never worked long in retail but I was there long enough to know the jobs generally sucked. 99% of retail employees are good, hardworking people. Please treat them with the same respect you want for yourself.

Satisfy Your Growing Storage Needs with a 5TB...

There's no such thing as "too much storage," so we're always on the lookout for great deals on massive drives, and this morning we found one. B&H has the 5TB Western Digital Elements USB 3.0 external hard drive on sale for $129.99 with free expedited shipping in the United States. This is the best deal we've seen this particular drive yet, as it normally runs around $150. And don't let the lack of "Mac" branding fool you, this drive will work just fine with OS X if you format it with Disk Utility before using it.

Apple is continuing to tweak its Apple Watch showroom experience within Apple Stores. Upon the initial rollout of the Apple Watch in April, Apple Stores installed large glass tables as a showcase for the different Apple Watch variations. Customers could test drive the Apple Watch via a demo unit connected to an iPad mini or try it on at a series of try-on stations. Following a pilot program across select Apple Stores across the world, Apple has now begun a widespread rollout of a new Apple Watch testing program called Mobile Try-On, according to Apple Retail employees.

John Martellaro joins Jeff Gamet to look at the changes in Apple's iPod retail strategy and why we won't be seeing the end of the iPod touch, nano, or shuffle any time soon.

StellaService says Apple's customer service has...

A study by StellaService, which measures online customer service, indicates a decline in Apple's customer service in recent months.

The decline, as reported by Cult of Mac, mainly involves Apple’s phone, email and chat problem resolution scores. While Apple typically ranks highly in this category, this quarter the amount of time customers had to wait to chat to an Apple rep increased from 34 seconds to 63 seconds. 

Even when people do get to chat to someone, the successful chat resolution rate — referring to the questions answered satisfactorily — fell from 97 percent down to 94 percent. Customers also had to wait longer to speak to a person on the phone. Wait times increased to 121 seconds, although the resolution rate was much better, at 99 percent success.

However, as...

Tim Cook’s efforts to influence policy in Washington DC in ways that better serve Apple have been hard to miss during his tenure as CEO. Pushing the company’s strong stance on privacy has been met with great pushback from the justice department and Apple was unhappy with how the ebook pricing case against it went so it’s no surprise its lobbying efforts have climbed in recent years. Now Politico, a news site focused on politics, has dedicated a lengthy 4,000+ word profile on Tim Cook’s relationship with Washington DC over the last four years....

Apple to retire One to One Apple Store training...

Apple is planning to retire its long existing One to One training program within Apple Stores on September 28th, according to a memo sent this week to Apple retail employees. One to One launched in 2007 as a $99 per year subscription program where a Mac user could make appointments with a “Creative” at an Apple Store to learn more about using their Mac and creating content with either consumer or professional applications. Apple cites “fewer customers” signing up for One to One as the reason behind the service’s upcoming closure:

On September 28th, we will be ending One to One sales and renewals. Since 2007, there...

Apple Music loses key exec as former Beats Music CEO...

Former Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers joined Apple when the company bought Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s brainchild last year. He helped Cupertino launch its own streaming service, Apple Music, and spearheaded the popular Beats 1 live radio station. Now he’s done.

The Financial Times reported Friday that Rogers resigned unexpectedly just two months after helping to launch Apple Music. But he’s not leaving to work for a streaming music rival—Rogers is going to work for a European company in an entirely different industry.

iPhone 6s rumors: Hello rose gold, goodbye iPhone 5c

The yearly iPhone refresh is a fact of life, as unmistakeable a sign of fall as back-to-school sales and baseball playoffs. And one thing you can count on just as certainly as a new iPhone is the rumor mill spinning out of control leading up to its unveiling. The iPhone 6s is no exception.

To help make sense of the chaotic hearsay, we've collected every rumor that has surfaced about the iPhone 6s, from its reported specs to its guesstimated release date, and everything in between—as well as tried to discern the plausibly of the rumor. It’s been a long, rumor-packed summer, but Apple will finally take the wraps off its new phones on Sept. 9. Until then, here's what we've been hearing so far.

iOS 9 Content Blockers - Bring ‘Em On!

Apple's announcement of iOS 9 at WWDC included a feature that sent ripples through the online publishing community: iOS 9 will support third-party Content Blockers (as will/does Safari on OS X). The main goal of these, of course, is to give users the ability to filter out crap that slows down their (mobile) web experience. There's nothing wrong with that. They also (primarily) mean blocking ad-serving scripts. There's nothing wrong with that, either. In fact, I welcome it.

If you’re tired of just plopping your iPhone or Apple Watch on a table at night, this is a much better alternative. Meet Enblue Technology’s Premium One W2 dual dock and charging stand. Quite possibly one of the longest accessory names I’ve heard, but I’ll easily forgive that for the functionality it brings along…

If you’re thinking this looks familiar, it’s because my colleague Jeremy reviewed a different model a while back, which you can find here. This dock is awesome. There are no cables to mess with really and everything is clean and presentable. On the left side you’ll find a vertical riser...

New rumors hint at an Apple Car unveiling on Sept. 9...

A Seeking Alpha article by "Electric Phred" says there's a good chance we'll see the rumored Apple Car at Apple's Sept. 9 media event. However, if I were a betting man, I'd bet against it.

Why? Electric Phred notes a report that says: "Sidewalks on two sides of the venue are inaccessible to pedestrians. Enormous power generators are stationed on the Larkin Street side of the building, occupying a lane of parking spots."

This leads him to this conclusion: "What sort of unveiling needs a 7000 seat venue, weeks of work, and likely millions of dollars? This wouldn't seem to me to be just the unveiling of the iPhone 6s or the iPad Pro (which one rumor has sporting an Intel Processor). I am betting we may see the Apple electric vehicle. Since the rental on the venue...

I'm definitely expecting the next generation Apple TV to be announced at Apple's Sept. 9 media event. I'll be disappointed if it lacks 4K support. In fact, I have a suggestion for Apple for future Apple TVs, Macs and iOS devices: add support for the VIDITY platform.

A one-time purchase and download of a 4K Ultra HD movie to a VIDITY-enabled storage device provides playback without an Internet connection needed, as well as across other a variety of devices. It's complementary to existing digital entertainment platforms.

It shouldn't be difficult for Apple to support the platform and technology. VIDITY spokesperson Chris Saito told Apple World Today that any device that adopts and licenses the company's technology can be VIDITY enabled. If Apple wanted Macs, Apple TVs and iOS devices to be compliant, it could license the technology and implement it via...
