Patent report: vehicle collision avoidance system,...

We know that Apple has sent a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) acknowledging that it is working on self-driving cars. Its timing could be impeccable. Now the company has filed for a patent for an autonomous vehicle collision avoidance system.

Patent number 20160358485 is for “collision avoidance of arbitrary polygonal obstacles.” In the patent filing Apple the goal is to generate a steering force to dodge obstacles every time one is close enough to block the passage. Steering behaviors help autonomous agents move in a realistic manner, by using simple forces that are combined to produce improvisational navigation around the agent's environment, the company adds. 

Here’s the summary of the patent: “In general, collision avoidance techniques are disclosed that operate even...

∞ Jimmy Fallon plays Super Mario Run and Zelda:...

This was delightful, infectiously fun. Turns out, Jimmy Fallon is pretty good at this game. Great marketing for both Super Mario Run and the Nintendo Switch, which they showed off midway through the video, with Jimmy getting a chance to explore the open world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Switch.

I love that they had Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto in the audience to watch. My favorite part of the show was Miyamoto playing the Super Mario theme with the Roots. [VIDEO and links in main Loop post]

Apple adds ABC and Disney to its Single Sign-on...

Apple has added ABC and Disney to its Single Sign-on feature in tvOS 10.1 and iOS 10.2, reports The Verge. Both the Watch ABC and Watch Disney apps for Apple TV and iOS will now automatically log you in if you’ve entered your cable or satellite credentials into the new settings menu.

When tvOS 10.1 and iOS 10.2 become available (they’re now in beta testing), Single Sign-on will be available for eight cable subscription options: DirecTV, Dish, Hotwire, Sling TV, CenturyLink Prism, Hawaiian Telecom, MetroCast, and GTA. With single Sign-on, users only have to sign in once on Apple TV to enjoy immediate access to their favorite video channels that are included as part of their pay-TV subscription. Once a user is signed into one network app, any other app on Apple TV from participating pay-TV providers will automatically log the user into all other supported apps requiring...

Apple asks Beijing court to lift a ban on the iPhone...

Apple argued in a Beijing court on Wednesday that its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus mobile designs don’t copy a Chinese product and should be allowed to be sold on the Chinese mainland, reports China Daily.

In May the Beijing Intellectual Property Office halted sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, reasoning that the Apple smartphonesls infringed the design patent of a Chinese cell phone model produced by Shenzhen Baili Marketing Service Co. The iPhone was too similar to Shenzhen’s 100C phone (pictured), according to the Beijing Intellectual Property Office.

Yang Pu, Apple's attorney, said during the hearing at the Beijing Intellectual Property Court that the design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has 13 differences compared with the 100C. "Average consumers can distinguish them easily,” he said.

Interestingly, Shenzhen apparently is no longer operating...

The National Hockey League and Apple are reportedly...

The National Hockey League has informed teams that it’s seriously negotiating a a partnership with Apple that could see iPads and other technology become commonplace on team benches, reports TSN, quoting three unnamed “sources familiar with the matter.”

The article adds that the NHL has been in talks for “several years” with Apple and Microsoft, but that the talks with Apple have accelerated after similar talks between the company and the National Basketball Association didn’t pan out. 

The NHL had sought at least $5 million per year from Apple, but the technology company has a long-standing resistance to paying for sponsorships, according to TSN. The hockey organization wants to build on a model employed by the National Football League, which convinced companies like Motorola and Bose to pay millions of dollars so that team coaches and other...

Apple VP Jennifer Bailey got onstage at the Code Commerce Series and spoke, interview style, about the current status of Apple Pay.

If you have even the slightest interest in Apple Pay, this is worth watching. Jennifer is well spoken, really knows her stuff, and offers some projections on where Apple Pay is going. For example, she proposed that in 2017, two thirds of the top 100 retailers will accept Apple Pay.

A few years ago, I wrote about Craig Federighi being a natural presence on stage. He’s confident, self effacing, well-spoken, and passionate. He does a terrific job representing Apple.

To me, Jennifer Bailey has that same personality. I think she’d be great on stage at an Apple event. She certainly breathes life into Apple Pay discussions.

Bluetooth 5 officially adopted; look for products in...

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) officially adopted Bluetooth 5 as the latest version of the Bluetooth core specification this week. Key updates to Bluetooth 5 include longer range, faster speed, and larger broadcast message capacity, as well as improved interoperability and coexistence with other wireless technologies. 

Bluetooth 5 continues to advance the Internet of Things (IoT) experience by enabling “simple and effortless” interactions across the vast range of connected devices, according to the SIG. Key feature updates include four times range, two times speed, and eight times broadcast message capacity. 

Longer range powers whole home and building coverage, for more robust and reliable connections.Higher speed enables more responsive, high-performance devices. Increased broadcast message size increases the data sent for improved and more context relevant solutions.

Bluetooth 5 also includes updates that help reduce potential interference with...

Americans are paying Apple millions to shelter...

I’m not a fan of the article’s title, but it is definitely an interesting read. At its core:

Taking advantage of an exemption tucked into America’s Byzantine tax code, Apple stashed much of its foreign earnings—tax-free—right here in the U.S., in part by purchasing government bonds, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. In return, the Treasury Department paid Apple at least $600 million and possibly much more over the past five years in the form of interest, a Bloomberg review of its regulatory filings shows.

And:

Blaming U.S. companies for following the tax code, however complex or flawed, is misguided, says Richard Lane, a senior analyst at Moody’s Investors Service.

“If these companies don’t need the money in the U.S., there’s no incentive to give Uncle Sam” that money in taxes, he said. “What sane chief financial officer, who’s doing their fiduciary duties to shareholders, would pay money to some entity for no good reason? If there...

Compared to existing Bluetooth 4.2 protocol, Bluetooth 5 offers four times the range, two times the speed, and eight times the broadcast message capacity, bringing whole home coverage and more reliable connections between connected devices.

With the debut of Bluetooth 5, SIG’s Bluetooth naming convention will drop all references to version and point number going forward, simplifying marketing.

Bluetooth 5 devices will be available within the next two to six months, indicating...

You might be able to snag movies that are currently in theaters as well as pre-order them months ahead of time via iTunes.

Apple is apparently in negotiations with movie studios to allow customer to rent movies at home for a premium shortly after they hit theaters.

The deal is apparently focused on allowing Apple to offer home rentals for new movies two weeks after they’re released in theaters. Currently, most new movies are available for renting on iTunes after a short period of only being available for purchase.

21st Century Fox, Warner Brothers and Universal Pictures all confirmed over the past week that they are looking to offer high-priced, home-video rentals of new movies shortly after they open in theaters.

I’ve always appreciated the HiRise line of products, but Twelve South has kicked things up a notch (pun intended) with the HiRise Duet. The latest iteration of the charging stand/dock powers your iPhone and Apple Watch simultaneously. This saves some desktop real estate and eliminates a bit of cord clutter.

I use my iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch Series 2 with the HiRise Duet. This means only one power outlet has to be connected. The charging stand has an integrated Lightning connector and a Watch Charging Disk, so does double duty. The HiRise Duet works with most iPhone cases and sleeves attached to the smartphone — although if you have a really thick case, it could be a problem.

It also works with the Apple Watch in NightStand Mode, which makes it convenient for beside use. (When you use Nightstand mode, your Apple Watch displays the date and time, along with the remaining charge. If you...

Mineral Database for macOS is a useful reference tool

By Aaron Lee

Mineral Database is a Mac app from Tasa Graphics Arts that provides a useful reference for students, educators, professionals, or anyone interested in minerals.

You can search for minerals by selecting physical properties, optical properties, Dana number, Dana class, or many other classification and occurrence criteria. Or you can browse the mineral photo galleries. You can also search for color, hardness, and streak in field and classroom uses.

You can use the app as a companion to a polarizing light microscope by searching for birefringence or refractive index. With Mineral Database, you can dentify your unknown mineral through use of any or all 54 search criteria. The comprehensive search feature allows mineral identification by using known physical properties (such as color, streak, luster etc.) or crystal and optical properties.

The National Hockey League has informed teams that it is in late-stage negotiations to strike a partnership with Apple that could see the company’s iPads and other technology become commonplace on team benches.

The NHL had been in extended talks with both Microsoft and Apple over whose tablets would be used by teams, but an NHL source suggested that it is now almost certain that the iPad will be chosen …

Apple Is In Talks With Hollywood For Early Access To...

Apple is talking with Hollywood studios to try and get iTunes rentals of movies that are still playing on the big screen. According to a report from Bloomberg, "some studio executives have been pushing to allow home rentals as early as two weeks after theatrical debuts and are considering a deal with iTunes as one option." Bloomberg reports: The most recent talks are part of longer-running efforts by Cupertino, California-based Apple to get new movies sooner, two of the people said. Such an arrangement could help iTunes stand out in a crowded online market for movies, TV shows and music. While the iTunes store helped Apple build a dominant role in music retailing, the company hasn't carved out a similar role in music and video streaming. Hollywood studios typically give theaters exclusive rights to new movies for 90 days or more before issuing them on DVD or making them available for online purchase. One of the concerns about iTunes is whether it will be a secure platform for...

I love Rube Goldberg machines, and according to Guinness World Records, we have a new largest one in the world. It was built by Latvian e-commerce company Scandiweb in (and for the people of) Riga. It’s purpose—aside from beating the world record—was to light a Christmas Tree. The video (below) is 4 minutes and 44 seconds, and most of it is the machine doing its absurdist thing. One of the things I like about this one is seeing the process. It’s an enormously long Rube Goldberg machine, but most of it consists of individual panels of multiple steps. Make the panels work and then “all” you have to do is worry about connecting those panels. One way or another, it’s a fun watch. Check it out. The link is to Guinness’s webpage for the record.

Your answer to that might vary based on your experiences in stores today—after all, the Apple Store lets you check yourself out with the iOS app, which can feel either freeing or like someone's about to tackle you before you reach the door. Amazon is experimenting with a convenience store that's staffed by sensors instead of a clerk, and Glenn and Susie have plenty of thoughts.

Apple might offer iTunes movie rentals two weeks...

New movies could be coming to iTunes just days after the theatrical premiere.

Apple is reportedly pressing film studios to make movies available to rent on iTunes just two weeks after they’re released in theaters. According to Bloomberg, Warner Bros., 21st Century Fox, and Universal Pictures are looking into allowing for these earlier home-rentals and are considering striking a deal with Apple to have them on iTunes.

The deal is far from finalized, however, and the movie studios could end up choosing another platform, like Amazon or Google Play, according to the report. So, it sounds like the studios are looking to pick just one platform to exclusively offer earlier rental as a way to secure a better licensing deal.

T-Mobile's 'Digits' Solution Lets You...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: T-Mobile just revealed its answer to ATT's NumberSync technology, which lets customers use one phone number across all their connected devices. T-Mobile's version is called Digits and it will launch in a limited, opt-in customer beta beginning today before rolling out to everyone early next year. "You can make and take calls and texts on whatever device is most convenient," the company said in its press release. "Just log in and, bam, your call history, messages and even voicemail are all there. And it's always your same number, so when you call or text from another device, it shows up as you." When it leaves beta, Digits will cost an extra monthly fee, but T-Mobile isn't revealing pricing today. "This is not going to be treated as adding another line to your account," said COO Mike Sievert. "Expect us to be disruptive here." And while its main feature is one number for everything, Digits does offer T-Mobile customers another big...

Review: Brydge 12.9 iPad Pro Keyboard

Brydge's Brydge 12.9 ($189) is, as you might expect, a keyboard for the 12.9" iPad Pro. Made out of aluminum, the Bluetooth keyboard has hinges which attach to the iPad, giving it a laptop look when in use. Keys are backlit, with three levels of lighting. The top row of keys is devoted to iOS functions, such as screen brightness, playback, and volume. Brydge claims the Brydge 12.9 lasts for three months before its battery needs recharged via micro-USB (a cable is included). Brydge 12.9 comes in space gray, gold, and silver.{/exp:char_limit}

I’ve been a major fan of Apple’s Health app since its original launch and have continuously looked for reasons to use it. I believe that the first step to a healthy life is being proactive versus reactive, which is why my interest was piqued when Qardio reached out asking if I wanted to review their QardioArm and QardioBase products. A smart portable blood pressure monitor, and a smart scale was something that definitely fit into my “DIY preventative care” ideology. Qardio’s products are designed to fit into a modern health focused lifestyle, but let’s see what that means for the product’s themselves.

Now, with the rise of the internet and the ability of customers to communicate and warn each other much more quickly, there’s no way Iomega could have hidden the issue for as long as they did.

T-Mobile is no stranger to shaking up the mobile world, having previously unveiled unlimited video streaming, streamlined data plans and hassle-free device upgrades, and now it has a new Un-carrier trick up its sleeve: a single number for all your devices and multiple numbers on a single device.

Called Digits, the unique program lets you share your T-Mobile number with any Internet-connected device, including smartwatches, computers, and tablets. As the company explains in its press release, “Just log in and, bam, your call history, messages, and even voicemail are all there. And it’s always your same number, so when you call or text from another device, it shows up as you.”

Apple looks to bring in-theater movies to iTunes...

21st Century Fox Inc., Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. and Comcast Corp.’s Universal Pictures all confirmed over the past week that they are looking to offer high-priced, home-video rentals of new movies shortly after they open in theaters. Some studio executives have been pushing to allow home rentals as early as two weeks after theatrical debuts and are considering a deal with iTunes as one option, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.

One option is a premium-priced online rental for new movies, at prices of $25 to $50, a possibility under consideration at the studios, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

I think this would be great, and I’d be willing to pay a premium to be able to rent movies that are still in theaters. However, $25 is a bit rich for me. I’d wait until they dropped the price to about half of that.

Amazon wants customers to be able to leave their wallets at home and still go shopping, as long as they have their smartphones on hand.

The online retail giant is opening up a brick-and-mortar store in Seattle called Amazon Go, and the store uses a mix of sensors and computer learning to track what items customers pick up and to automatically add them to their Amazon accounts.

Amazon identifies each customer using a QR code, which individuals scan before entering the store. The store offers groceries, ready-made food, and Amazon meal kits. Currently, Amazon Go is only accessible to the company’s employees, but Amazon says it will open its doors to the public in early 2017.
