News: Apple releases iOS 10.3.2 beta to developers

Only one day after the public release of iOS 10.3, Apple has already rolled out a new iOS 10 beta to its registered developers. The first new beta, interestingly numbered iOS 10.3.2, has a build number of 14F5065b and according to the release notes includes little other than fixes for SiriKit car commands. New betas of watchOS 3.2.2 and tvOS 10.2.1 were also released to developers today, with similarly sparse release notes indicating only bug fixes…

Planescape: Torment is still one of the all-time great RPGs. I should know—I just replayed it in January in preparation for the then-impending launch of spiritual successor Torment: Tides of Numenera.

If only I’d waited two more months though, eh? Today a countdown timer at planescape.com (cheekily titled “Plan Escape”) was supposed to tick down to zero and pull back the curtain on Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition, coming to PC, Mac, and Linux later this year. Then uh...well, the trailer leaked early. Best laid plans.

Too Much Communication


The world is a smaller place because we have so many ways to connect and communicate, but it has created a generation gap, a gap of classes and perhaps even a culture gap. This may seem like a serious contradiction; after all shouldn't more means of communication bring us closer together?
The obvious answer is yes, but unfortunately this is not the case -- in part because so many technology start-ups have tried to create the next way to connect with friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

How to save emails from Mail to Notes as PDFs on iOS

I’m really good at managing my inbox (for personal email at least) and rarely leave messages there for keeping. Most emails go in a receipt folder or get deleted, I aggressively unsubscribe to mailing lists and mark spam as junk, and special messages are archived for keeping.

Occasionally I’ll have a message with important information that I don’t need right now and will want to easily reference in the near future. I’ve tried flagging but I don’t entirely understand how the feature is supposed to work between iOS and the Mac.

Usually I just leave the email in my inbox, but what I’d like to do is save the message somewhere with other important information like Apple’s Notes app. Luckily this is possible on iOS, but it’s a bit confusing to discover…

Think of it as a physical version of the table with elements you can actually pick up and hold. Element Blocks includes four blocks: iron, copper, aluminum, and titanium, along with a machined display stand. The blocks are about an inch on each side and are at least 90% pure, and their element symbols and weight are laser engraved. The project has already reached funding levels with about two weeks left to go, and you can get yourself an Element Blocks set for US$38.

iOS 10.3 will probably make your iPhone feel faster

The Verge:

Apple released iOS 10.3 yesterday with a new modern file system, but like any software update there are many undocumented changes. One particular change has been revealed through Apple engineer Renaud Lienhart‏, who works directly on the iOS operating system. “iOS 10.3 feels ‘snappier’ because many animations were slightly tweaked & shortened, for the better,” says Lienhart on Twitter.

Here’s the tweet:

Hands-on with the updated Apple TV Remote app

Unfortunately one of my main complaints about the initial Apple TV Remote app release — the lack of software volume controls — has yet to be addressed. I understand that the hardware version of the remote utilizes its built in IR blaster to communicate with a television, but it would be nice if there was a software provision for adjusting volume via the app.

UPDATE: As noted in the comments and on Twitter, this is an HDMI issue. If the TV supports HDMI-CEC, the remote can control volume.

iOS 10.3 can save you some serious storage space

If you have not yet upgraded to iOS 10.3 you might want to consider doing so. One of the main features of iOS 10.3 is the new Apple File System. 

You can search online and even view the keynote from 2016’s Worldwide Developer Conference to see many of the advance features of the Apple File System that make it a better and more modern file system. It replaces HFS Plus, which was introduced in 1998 and which was based on HFS from 1985. 

Apple needed a new more modern file system and Apple File System should suffice for years to come and brings a common file system to all Apple products from the Mac to the Apple Watch. (The Mac will receive this updated file system later this year.)

One benefit from the new file system and the way it stores files is that you will probably see an increase in storage. On my 256GB iPhone 7 Plus I gained almost 12GB of storage. I made sure to not add nor delete any media or apps between the times I checked.

Users can adjust the color, tone and creative look of a video as easily as adjusting a photo, he adds. The built-in media browser allows users to play multiple videos side-by-side.

Patent report: speaker protection, battery usage...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,609,450) for a “method and system for monitoring temperature for speaker protection.” The goal is to prevent possible damage to speakers in Apple’s macOS, iOS and watchOS devices.

In the patent filing,  Apple notes that electronic devices have a speaker box, acoustic chamber that includes the speaker port and at least partially encloses a speaker driver. The speaker driver includes a diaphragm, a voice coil, a magnet unit and a yoke. 

For audio to be played, current is applied to the speaker driver which causes the voice coil to generate heat. The voice coil in the speaker driver is coupled to the magnet unit and thus, the heat from the voice coil is transferred to the magnet unit. The amount of power that may be applied to the speaker box is limited by the resilience of the magnet unit to heat. 

Overheating any magnet will cause structural or mechanical damage to the magnet and may result in its...

The rumor claims that Siri will be able to learn a user’s habits. The digital personal assistant’s capabilities will be extended beyond its current limited command pool by stacking multiple queries and offering different actions depending on the context, according to The Verifier. For example, Siri's integration into iMessage means it will be able to offer suggestions relevant to the ongoing conversation, such as where to dine out, how to get there, and one-step Uber taxi booking.

Both of the new systems will use the same router, but will have different satellites. The router is an AC2200 model supporting two spatial streams up and down on each frequency band to support one 2.4GHz network with to 400Mbps of bandwidth, a 5GHz network with up to 866Mbps of bandwidth, and a third 5GHz network dedicated to data backhaul with up to 867Mbps of bandwidth.

A few highlights:

In 2016, Apple audited 705 suppliers and compliance with a 60-hour maximum work week reached 98%, an all-time high. Apple also tripled the number of supplier sites in the Energy Efficiency program, resulting in the reduction of over 150,000 metric tons of carbon emissions — the equivalent of taking 31,000 cars off the road for a year.

And:

For the first time, Apple suppliers achieved 100% UL Zero Waste to Landfill validation for all final assembly sites in China. Since 2013, Apple’s Clean Water program saved over 3.8 billion gallons of fresh water, enough to provide every person on the planet with 18 glasses of water.

And:

Apple’s responsible sourcing efforts expanded beyond conflict minerals to include cobalt for the first time. For the second year in a row, 100% of Apple’s tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold (3TG) smelters and refiners are participating in independent third-party audits.

Rumor: Apple Watch 3 to add LTE, SIM card support

Susquehanna Financial Group semiconductor analyst Christopher Rolland says in a note to clients — as noted by Barron’s — that the next gen Apple Watch will include a SIM card and support LTE (a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals).

“Apple may be employing VOIP and data across a CAT-M1 connection for superior battery life,” he writes. “Apple will tout interoperability with the company’s AirPods (now on back order till May) to make and receive phone calls (perhaps a small win for Maxim with amps in each ear bud).”

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) predicts that the Apple Watch 3 will add LTE support for cellular connectivity, but there’s no way it’s going to make room for a SIM card. Instead it will use its own, small Apple SIM. It’s a proprietary subscriber information...

How to hide (and ‘unhide’) folders in macOS Sierra

Have some private files that you don’t want to risk anyone else seeing? You canhide ‘em with macOS Sierra, though you’ll have to use Terminal. The tool provides text-based access to the operating system, in contrast to the mostly graphical nature of the user experience of macOS, so not everyone wants to tamper with it.

However, if you’re willing to use Terminal, here’s how you hide your files:

Press the Command and Space keys simultaneously. Type the word “Terminal” and press Enter. A terminal window will open.

In the window, type in this command: chflags hidden

Press the space key.

Drag the file or folder you want to hide from the Finder and drop it/them into the terminal window. (The 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.)

When you want the hidden files to reappear, you’ll have to use Terminal once more. Open...

StopKnot can free you from earbud tangle hell

It's time to address one of the major problems of our time for anyone not using wireless earphones such as Apple AirPods: earbud tangle. You know what I'm talking about. 

You've finished listening to your tunes on your Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod, so you wrap up your earbuds and slide them into your pocket, purse or backpack. Later when you remove them, they've somehow entangled themselves into a ball of knots that takes an eternity to untangle.

Enter the StopKnot, one of those it's-so-simple-why-didn't-I-think-of-that solutions that solves one task brilliantly. It's a flexible band that slides onto your headphone cable allowing you to secure both of the ear pieces and the audio jack together when you're not using them. When you're ready to use your earbuds again, just slide the ring and they're ready to go — with no need for untangling.

The StopKnot costs $9.99 for a...

Ransomware scammers have been exploiting a flaw in Apple's Mobile Safari browser in a campaign to extort fees from uninformed users. The scammers particularly target those who viewed porn or other controversial content. Apple patched the vulnerability on Monday with the release of iOS version 10.3.

The flaw involved the way that Safari displayed JavaScript pop-up windows. In a blog post published Monday afternoon, researchers from mobile-security provider Lookout described how exploit code surreptitiously planted on multiple websites caused an endless loop of windows to be displayed in a...

Ignore that call from “Apple” about an iCloud breach

Earlier on Monday, my wife let me know that “Apple Support” had called about iCloud security. She was dubious, and rightly so. “Apple” then called five more times (and counting). Suffice it to say, it wasn’t Apple, but fraudsters trying to piggyback on reports that a major breach of iCloud credentials could render hundreds of millions of accounts vulnerable.

Apple says no such breach occurred, and security researchers, like Troy Hunt of HaveIBeenPwned.com, say the group trying to extort Apple likely has reused credentials from other sites’ password leaks. (We recommend turning on two-factor authentication at iCloud regardless.)

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money). 

Helplessly falling through the clouds at a rapid pace towards the dirt? Terrifying. Controlled falling, on the other hand? Potentially exhilarating. And that’s the kind of sensation that Sky Dancer taps into, blending a familiar behind-the-back endless runner approach with the less-familiar feeling of dropping large distances to platforms below.

"There should be no place for terrorists to hide," she said. "We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp -- and there are plenty of others like that -- don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other."

A new report brings back the speculation that Apple is working on a pair of augmented reality glasses, and paints Facebook as a direct competitor.

Previously, Apple’s AR efforts were linked to the iPhone, and Facebook seemed occupied with the virtual reality capabilities of Oculus. Now, both tech giants are eager to create an AR wearable, according to the report.
