Purism Laptops to Protect You from Surveillance...

SAN FRANCISCO - There's a new hardware company on the scene called Purism, and the name is a significant clue as to what the company is all about: pure software. At its heart, Purism is dedicated to providing computer hardware driven entirely by open source software so that users can "trust, but verify." Purism is putting itself in direct opposition to what it considers "surveillance capitalism." Bryan Chaffin has the low-down.

A Third Of Cash Is Held By 5 US Tech Companies

An anonymous reader writes: Moody's Investors Service released an analysis Friday that shows Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Cisco Systems, and Oracle are sitting on $504 billion, which is roughly 30% of the $1.7 trillion in cash and cash equivalents held by U.S. non-financial companies in 2015. Almost all of their earnings ($1.2 trillion) are stashed overseas in an effort to avoid paying taxes on moving profits back to the U.S. under the country's complex tax code. Apple has more than 90 percent of its money located outside of the U.S., according to its most recent filings. Moody's said in its report that "we expect that overseas cash balances will continue to grow unless tax laws are changed to encourage companies to repatriate money." Some of the other tech and Silicon Valley companies in the top 50 include Intel, Gilead Sciences, Facebook, Amazon, Qualcomm, eBay, Hewlett-Packard and Yahoo.

Apple Opens First 'Next Generation' Retail...

An anonymous reader writes: Apple has opened its new flagship store on Thursday in San Fransisco, throwing the curtain back on a design that puts a premium on hanging out over shopping. About 20 percent of the new store's space features an open Forum area where visitors can learn about Apple's various products. The new design is rolling out to stores in Brussels, Memphis and Guilderland, N.Y. "This is the next generation of Apple retail," Angela Ahrendts, Apple's senior vice president of retail and online operations, told media. "Fifteen years ago today Apple opened its first two stores and we're thrilled to mark the occasion with the opening of Apple Union Square in San Francisco," she said. "We are not just evolving our store design, but its purpose and greater role in the community as we educate and entertain visitors and serve our network of local entrepreneurs." The new stores were designed by Ahrendts and Apple's design chief, Jony Ive. "Among the other big changes in...

The Real Reason Apple Retail Stores Flourish

One of the classic Steve Jobs videos is his introduction to the first Apple retail store in Tyson's Corner, Virgina in 2001. In that legendary video, Mr. Jobs lays out his vision for what those stores would do for customers. Because other similar stores had failed, pundits assumed the Apple store would as well. Here are some observations by John Martellaro why Apple flourished.

Review: iClever Tri-Folding Backlit Bluetooth...

I’m not a major believer that Apple’s iOS devices can quite fully replace the PC and Mac in most scenarios, at least not for me, and not quite yet. I’m a keyboard fiend, using shortcuts on the keyboard almost more often than I use my mouse. These doubts were ready to be tested when I saw the progress that iOS 9 brought for third-party developers within the iOS ecosystem. With the new SDK, developers were getting the chance to integrate keyboard shortcuts into their iOS apps just like a Mac app. It was then that I knew it was time to start looking for a portable keyboard to take around with me.

This presented a new problem for me. There’s a vast amount of Bluetooth keyboards out there, and I didn’t want to just carry Apple’s bulky Bluetooth Keyboard around. I needed something with a full keyboard size, good battery life, and durability. After a few months of searching, and reluctance on spending money on what I considered an unknown, I gave up my hunt....

Flatev is a pod-based system for instant tortillas in the mold of a Keurig coffee maker. Insert a pod of fresh dough -- you have several choices, all organic -- then adjust settings for type of dough and desired crispiness, and 90 seconds later you'll have a fresh, warm tortilla. There's a heated drawer to keep your tortillas warm while you make as many as you need. Starting at around $200 for backers of its crowdfunding campaign, the machine itself seems a fair price.

Apple pulls iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro

Amid a growing number of complaints over iOS 9.3.2 bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pro models, Apple yesterday pulled the iOS 9.3.2 update. 9.7-inch iPad Pro users who have not installed iOS 9.3.2 no longer see the update, with iOS 9.3.1 now listed as the most current version of iOS 9 available for download.

Very specific problem for one model of the iPad. Weird.

BMW will finally integrate CarPlay later this year

This may not be the most exciting collaboration between Apple and BMW, but it’s one that needed to happen.

BMW is finally integrating CarPlay support in some of its models to be released later this year. According to 9to5Mac, this year’s BMW German catalog and price list mentions that the BMW 5X M and 6X M will feature “wireless” CarPlay. Previously, BMW was one of the last major car manufacturers to incorporate CarPlay technology in its vehicles. The vehicles and prices in the BMW catalog will roll out starting in August, and CarPlay support is expected in the second half of the year.

Apple is pulling iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro following reports that tablets were being bricked by the update. Affected tablets show the "connect to iTunes" message that iDevices display when put into recovery mode, but iTunes only displays an "Error 56" message and can't actually be used to restore the tablets. The bug doesn't appear to affect any other supported iDevices and the update hasn't been pulled for any other iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

According to MacRumors, Apple has now pulled iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, telling iMore’s Rene Ritchie that it’s working on a fix. As much as it pains us to say so, this is exactly why we always recommend waiting a week or so before installing Apple OS updates. For those of you with a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, sit tight, and iOS 9.3.2 should be back soon. In the meantime, you’re not missing much, since it had only a few bug fixes and security improvements.

OS X 10.12 may let you unlock a Mac using Touch ID...

Touch ID on the iPhone and iPad is such a handy and convenient security feature that would be a welcome addition to the Mac. But how would you implement it? Add a Touch ID hardware sensor to the keyboard? Seems like an odd fit for Apple design-wise.

According to MacRumors, Apple may have found a way: by allowing Touch ID on an iPhone unlock a Mac. The iPhone would use Bluetooth LE to connect to a Mac, and using Touch ID would work in place of entering a password. (An app called Knock already does something similar, letting you unlock your Mac with your iPhone or even your Apple Watch.) MacRumors also said that the Touch ID implementation would also work with the rumored Apple Pay for web browsers,...

The current rumor has it that Apple is looking towards a glass-backed iPhone for 2017.

Speaking at his company’s annual shareholder meeting, Horng said Apple plans to unveil an iPhone with a glass casing and a metal frame. He said the metal frame for the glass-exterior phone will require “advanced processing technology,” and that it won’t be cheap to manufacture.

Horng indicated that only “one model” will adopt the glass casing in 2017.

Siri isn’t the only thing that could come to OS X 10.12. A new report has indicated that Apple could add Touch ID support to OS X with 10.12 as well.

The rumor has it that Apple “could” be incorporating an auto-unlock feature into OS X 10.12 that would allow an iPhone to unlock a Mac when the two are in close proximity of one another. Much like how Apple Watch can bypass its passcode when near an unlocked iPhone, the OS X and iPhone feature would also use Bluetooth LE.

In addition to an iPhone unlocking a Mac, the report claims that it’s also “possible” that when an Apple Watch is in close proximity to a Mac, it could also unlock the computer. This is similar to the functionality provided by the third-party app Knock.

Rumor: OS X 10.12 to allow Macs to be unlocked via...

A report from MacRumors.com says that the upcoming version of OS X that will be previewed at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference will allow you to unlock a Mac via Touch ID on an iPhone.

Apple engineers are designing an auto unlock function that would allow an iPhone (and perhaps even an Apple Watch) to unlock a Mac when they’re near each other, eliminating the need to enter a password on a password-protected Mac, the article adds. The feature, which uses Bluetooth LE frameworks, will presumably work similarly to the automatic unlocking function on the Apple Watch, which allows an unlocked iPhone to bypass the passcode restriction on a connected Apple Watch. 

Chances that this rumor is true: 99%. I think Touch ID support and the addition of Siri will certainly be added to Mac OS X 10.12 (or will it be macOS 10.12).

Flaw Puts a Billion Wireless Mice at Risk


Wireless mice and keyboards are the perfect accessories for a world in which devices increasingly are shuffling off their connection coils, but those accessories -- especially untethered rodents -- also can create new threats for those who use them. One such threat is Mousejack. The attack exploits a vulnerability found in 80 percent of wireless mice. With $15 worth of off-the-shelf hardware and a few lines of simple code, a wireless mouse can be turned into a hacker's portal for all kinds of mischief.

2016 MacBook: a good ‘secondary Mac’ gets even better

My feelings about Apple’s 12-inch MacBook — see my review here — haven’t changed since its debut last year: it’s a great “secondary” Mac, but not a desktop replacement. 

Visually, the 2016 version of the teeny laptop looks exactly the same as last year’s model. Its main selling points remain its incredibly small size (at just two pounds and 13.1 mm thin, you have to wonder how they packed a Mac into that body) and gorgeous display (three million pixels and 2304 x 1440 resolution). What’s changed is that the new model has a bit more processing power and some extra battery life — two changes that certainly aren’t insignificant. It’s also available in “rose gold” — which to my eyes means “pink.”

The 2015 MacBook was powered by Intel’s Core M Broadwell processor, and the 2016 version features sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M...

Fair or fowl? We rank all 16 Angry Birds games

Whether or not it’s any good is another matter altogether—early critical reviews seem pretty mixed.

How to record video directly into iMovie in OS X

Sometimes it can be handy to record video directly into iMovie. To do so, start a new project and open the Import window by clicking the Import button in the toolbar. 

If you don’t see the Import button, click the Media button in the toolbar, and then click the Import button. If the Image Capture, Photos, or iPhoto window appears, close the window. But, wait, you say, I don’t want to import video, I want to record it directly into iMovie.

No problem. In the Cameras section of the Import window sidebar, select the built-in camera. A live video image from the camera appears in the Import window. To specify the event you want to record into, do one of the following:

Choose an existing event: Click the “Import to” pop-up menu at the top of the Import window and choose the event.

Create a new event: Click the “Import to” pop-up menu, choose New Event, type a name for the new event, and click OK.

Choose the open project: Click...

BetterZip 3 is a useful Mac OS X arching tool

By Aaron Lee

MacItBetter's BetterZip 3 is a handy Mac OS X solution for archiving. One of the coolest features is Direct Mode, which speeds up working with large archives by making archive preparation and recompression obsolete.

The archive password manager helps you work with encrypted archives by collecting a list of archive passwords in your OS X keychain. These can be used automatically whenever you open  encrypted archives. BetterZip 3 adds a password generator which suggests strong passwords whenever you need them.

When you open a file in an archive with the View command and edit it with an external editor, BetterZip will detect the changes and give you the option to update the archive.

Presets can store all the settings that can be applied to an archive, from the destination folder and archive format, to passwords and even a script to execute when the operation completed. After...

Fashion Friday: Think Different T-shirt

Over the years, I’ve collected lots of nifty T-shirts from trade shows I’ve covered — mainly the late, lamented Macworld Expos held in Boston, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Paris. Over the next few weeks I’ll be “modeling” some of the items in my collection.

This week I’m wearing a T-shirt that accompanied the launch of Apple’s classic “Think different” ad campaign. The slogan has been widely taken as a response to IBM's motto “Think”. It was used in a television commercial, several print advertisements, and a number of TV promos for Apple products. Apple's use of the slogan was discontinued with the debut of the iMac G4 in 2002.

The one-minute commercial (there was a 30-second ad as well, but the one-minute was the best) featured black-and-white footage of 17 iconic 20th century personalities. In order of appearance they were: Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison,...

Apple’s falling sales coupled to strong growth from emerging Chinese brands saw the iPhone’s worldwide market share drop just over three points from 17.9% in the first quarter of 2015 to 14.8% in the same quarter this year, according to Gartner.

Although a saturated smartphone market is part of the challenge faced by Apple, global smartphone sales did continue to grow, by 3.9% to 349M units.

Market leader Samsung also saw its share fall in the same period …

∞ My thoughts on Apple’s new retail store strategy

It’s not often that Apple invites journalists to its stores for a preview anymore, but today was a bit different. Apple not only unveiled its new San Francisco store, it also explained its new strategy for its major retail outlets.

As I sat listening to Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of retail and online stores, it became clear very quickly that Apple kept its attention to detail in the design of the location, but completely rethought how it functioned.

“Fifteen years ago today Apple opened its first two stores and we’re thrilled to mark the occasion with the opening of Apple Union Square in San Francisco,” said Ahrendts. “We are not just evolving our store design, but its purpose and greater role in the community as we educate and entertain visitors and serve our network of local entrepreneurs.”

Ahrendts said the company even thought about how sections of the Apple stores were named, like the Genius Bar. The word “bar” brings up thoughts of a...

Apple Union Square highlights new design elements,...

Apple has revealed its new store on San Francisco’s Union Square, offering many new features and services rolling out to Apple retail stores worldwide. The new store will open its signature 42-foot tall sliding glass doors to customers on Saturday, May 21 at 10 a.m.

While I’m not as afflicted as the story’s writer, I have many of the same issues. When I say/type the word “cube”, the vast majority of you will see a three-dimensional cube in your mind’s eye. I don’t have a mind’s eye. I see the actual word “cube”. It’s the only way I can visualize it. It’s probably why I have such an incredibly bad sense of direction. I can’t visualize the three-dimensionality of geography and place myself spatially. Maps mean nothing to me because I can’t imagine my place in the in the 3D space.

The Restricted Adventures of Raja

It seems like almost every day we hear about somebody badly mistreating a lost dog or cat. A sad situation from a few years ago when a 17 year old boy set a cat on fire was the impetus for Nicole Forsyth, CEO of RedRover, to work on creating an app and ebooks to teach children empathy towards animals. Here's Nicole talking about the way to get kids to think about animals and their emotions before committing acts of cruelty:
