ISS Cargo Lost in SpaceX Falcon Flameout


The SpaceX CRS-7 rocket failed minutes after Sunday's launch, blowing up in mid-air.
Just after T+2 minutes, when the craft's altitude was 32 km, its speed was 1 km/second, and its downrange distance was 30 km, its flight path apparently began curving downward. Three explosions then occurred. "There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted. "The Falcon line has been a remarkably reliable launch vehicle," said Frost & Sullivan analyst Mike Jude.

Apple has just announced that its fiscal third quarter earnings call will take place on Tuesday, July 21st at 2PM PT/5MP ET. The call will report earnings from the three month period ending this month.

Last quarter, Apple announced sales of 61.1 million iPhones, 12.6 million iPads, and 4.5 million Macs. The company reported revenue of $58 billion, including $13.6 billion in profit. Apple didn’t disclose sales for the Watch last quarter, and it seems unlikely that the company will do so this quarter either.

Apple will be hosting a conference call with investors and press and will also live stream audio from the call on its website, which of course we will have live coverage of. The live broadcast of the call will be available...

Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ Will Stream Exclusively on...

Dr. Dre's The Chronic will stream exclusively on Apple Music, according to Rolling Stone magazine. Dr. Dre works for Apple these days, and is a part of the company's Apple Music team. The album was Dr. Dre's first solo effort after leaving N.W.A., and it was released in 1992. The rapper turned media mogul won the digital rights for the album from his former record label, Death Row Records, in 2011. Since then, it has not been available on streaming services since that time. The Chronic joins Taylor Swift's 1989 as exclusive streaming titles for Apple Music.

Apple reportedly planning increased storage in next-...

The Korea Times today reports that Apple is in negotiations with Samsung to have the company supply the flash memory for the next-gen iPhone models. Currently, the flash storage is provided by Toshiba, SK hynix and SanDisk. The report also notes that Apple is looking to increase the storage capacity of its iPhone models.

Apple currently offers the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants. Today’s report suggests that Apple, rather than working to go beyond the 128GB amount, will increase the storage of the mid-tier models. The most logical move would be to cut the 16GB variant and make a 32GB model the entry-level option. The report, however, doesn’t go into that much detail.

Samsung and Apple are in negotiations over...

If you want an Apple Watch stand, you can choose from three major materials: plastic, wood, or metal. The universally affordable plastic options tend to look a bit cheap when paired with the Apple Watch — particularly non-Sport models — while the pricey wood ones are somewhat polarizing, sparking a roughly equal mix of “love” and “hate” responses. From what I’ve gathered from readers, metal is the most popular Apple Watch stand option, with...

How-To: Move your playlists from Spotify, Rdio, and...

With the launch of Apple Music just around the corner, music lovers currently subscribed to competing services like Spotify and Rdio may be looking to jump ship and give Apple’s offering a try. Apple first confirmed in a Beats Music FAQ that there will be a Beats Music update that allows users to import their libraries to the newer service, but users with music collections elsewhere seem to be out of luck without any official migration tool.

Thankfully, there’s an unofficial route to import all of your playlists from multiple services to Apple Music, but you’ll need to act before the 30th if you don’t already have a Beats Music account as Apple could turn off new subscriptions (and trials) at any moment.

DisplayMate: Less reflective Apple Watch Sport is...

The Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition have sapphire crystal covering their displays, but the lower-cost Apple Watch Sport uses Ion-X glass instead. Both were chosen for durability, but they also reflect different amounts of light. After having previously analyzed the OLED display used in all three watch models, Dr. Raymond Soneira at DisplayMate just published a detailed shootout comparing the display performance of an Apple Watch to an Apple Watch Sport.

While both the watches tested (42mm Apple Watch versus 42mm Apple Watch Sport) use the same OLED screen, they appear different in ambient light, since the sapphire crystal covering the Apple Watch is more reflective than the Ion-X glass on the Apple Watch Sport. DisplayMate measured the reflectance of the Apple Watch Sport to be 4.7 percent, and the Apple Watch was 8.2 percent...

Fitbits are outselling Apple Watches … for now

Bloomberg uses Slice Intelligence data to show that Fitbit is actually still doing well as Apple Watch orders begin to level off from launch day highs. In fact, the data from Slice, however accurate that is, shows that Fitbits are actually outselling Apple Watches.

But it is hard to compare the two: Apple’s costs $350-$400 to start, where Fitbits start at around $55 and only go up to $250.

But the same could even be said for $99 Pebble watches really. Or Android Watches which often start below $99 for...

The Automobile as We Know It Is Dead


There's a massive number of efforts going on to kill the car as we know it. Among them are efforts to make it a tiny self-driving box that we'd likely be embarrassed to be seen in, efforts to make it highly customized and amazing, and efforts to change its fuel from gasoline to CNG, electricity or something else. There is no doubt that the car as we know it soon will be dead. The question is whether we'll love or hate what replaces it, and I wonder if our children will look back at what we've done and praise us or curse us.

Rumor: Apple begins manufacturing of next-gen iPhone...

Whatever the next-gen iPhone is packing for features, they’re apparently building it right now.

This is the rumor, as Apple has started early production of its next-generation iPhone models that will retain 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch form factors and integrate Force Touch technology.

A Bloomberg article has sources close to Apple suppliers stating that they’re in the midst of an early manufacturing run of the company’s next iPhone models, which will bring pressure-sensitive Force Touch technology to the device.

The Force Touch feature was first deployed with the Apple Watch and incorporates sensors installed around the...

The 1992 album joins Taylor Swift’s “1989” as another big-name album currently only streaming on Apple Music. Years of legal battles even kept “The Chronic” off Dre’s own Beats Music. Dre was granted proceeds from digital sales of the album in a 2011 court victory, but the album…

DisplayMate runs full comparison between glass,...

Dr. Raymond Soneira went bananas yet again, this time pulling out all the stops and testing the Apple Watch glass and sapphire displays.

The testing seeks to answer the question as to whether there’s a visual difference between a watch that uses sapphire versus glass? If the two were held up side by side, the one with a glass crystal would be about 20 percent brighter than the one with sapphire (due to fundamental principles of optics that reduce its light transmission), so it appears somewhat darker and duller, particularly because the light has to pass through the crystal twice.

As such, what are the tradeoffs to using a sapphire display,...

Apple Music is coming to Sonos by the end of the year

The Verge:

Sonos let its fans know weeks ago that the company’s multi-room, wireless speakers would not support Apple Music at launch. But there is some good news: we now know that Apple and Sonos are trying to make it a reality. A Sonos spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge that the two companies are working together to bring Apple Music support “before the end of the year.”

I’ve never used the Sonos system but those I know who have rave about it. Good to see they and Apple are going to work together. Also interesting to see Apple confirm this “rumor”.

Production is said to be underway for the next iPhone models, and it looks like the new version’s big selling point will be Force Touch.

Apple is reportedly adding the pressure-sensitive displays already found in the Apple Watch and 12-inch MacBook to its iPhone line-up, unnamed sources told Bloomberg. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be the same size and have the same look as their 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch predecessors, so manufacturing is expected to be hiccup-free—though the new displays could throw a wrench in the process.

The company will reportedly be releasing iOS 8.4 at 8 AM on June 30th which includes the newly revamped Music app to support Apple Music. This is slightly earlier than the usual 10 AM release window. The change in scheduling seems to be in service of Beats 1, Apple’s worldwide radio station, which will start streaming from 9 AM on the same day.

AWT Health Club: Ahoy there, mateys!

MS NAUTICA AT ANCHOR IN NUUK, GREENLAND. PHOTO ©2015 Steven Sande, All Rights reserved.

This is my first Health Club post in a while. Between some family issues and then going on vacation, it’s been difficult to get the time to write about health-related apps and topics. I’m currently on a cruise, which is usually considered the antithesis of a healthy vacation. We have a few days at sea (I’m currently between Greenland and Iceland…) so it’s the perfect time to talk about staying healthy while traveling.

As I mentioned, a luxury cruise isn’t the best place to think about living healthy. There is a lot of temptation to eat too much, drink too much, and sit around not doing much. It can be the same on a land trip as well; think of those driving trips where you’re packed into the car for hours between points A and B, only getting out to pump gas into the tank, go to the bathroom, and collect more junk food. 

There are ways to up your game, though...

Apple Music Coming to Sonos Later this Year

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple wants its new streaming music service to be a success, so it isn't a big surprise to hear they're working on Sonos compatibility. It's interesting that whatever Apple has done to Beats Music to turn it into Apple Music is breaking Sonos compatibility.

If Apple pulls this off it'll mean good news for those who want matching in Apple Music but not iTunes Match, as it'll save them $25 per year.

In this week’s episode of The Logic Pros, we wanted to dive deeper into Logic Pro X’s Drummer. Considered by many to be a tool for kids, amateurs and even the lazy, Drummer is a much more versatile and customizable feature than you may think. In fact, I would argue it might be one the most interesting and powerful additions to LPX, not to mention one that Apple just hands out for free.

Whether its the slightly embarrassing drummer names or the preset stigma that surrounds it, Drummer tends to be overlooked and, in my opinion, quite underrated.

Apple Music launching 8am Pacific Tuesday, allows...

As Apple Music’s first day approaches, we’re learning a bit more about the details of the launch, and of the service itself. Eddy Cue even took to Twitter on Sunday to answer individual questions, and reveal an iTunes Match-like feature of Apple Music, for uploading songs that you own that aren't already available to stream.

As MacRumors reports, Apple Music Senior Director Ian Rogers wrote on his blog that Apple Music and the required iOS 8.4 update will become available starting at 8 a.m. Pacific time Tuesday, with Beats 1 programming beginning an hour later. Rogers later edited his post to remove any mention of a launch time, but he also mentioned an 8 a.m. start time in a Tweet from Saturday.

iOS 8.4 launches at 8 AM PT on 6/30, Beats 1 an hour...

Eric Slivka at MacRumors notes that Apple Music senior director Ian Rogers made a revealing blog post this weekend, announcing the launch times for iOS 8.4 and the Beats 1 "radio station" on Tuesday, June 30. iOS 8.4 is expected to show up at 8 AM PT, with Beats 1 going live an hour later at 9 AM PT.

Rogers discussed his life in music in the post, saying then that "Tuesday morning we’ll be unveiling the next chapter. Please make a note to upgrade to iOS 8.4 at 8am PT Tuesday, June 30th and listen to the first Beats 1 broadcast at 9am PT. Here’s a Facebook invite to make it easy for you to say yes, you’ll be there, and invite all your friends. See you there."

Apple Music coming to Sonos speakers ‘ASAP’, says...

Apple Music senior director Ian Rogers — ex Beats Music CEO — has announced on Twitter that integration with Sonos for Apple Music is coming as soon as possible. Although Beats Music did have native support on the popular internet-connected speaker system, there have been no announcements about a partnership with Apple Music so far. In the tweet, Rogers confirms that there will be no Sonos integration at launch.

This will be slightly disappointing for Beats Music users who rely on the feature, until the companies catch up ‘ASAP’. In early June, a Sonos representative said:

“Sonos will not have Apple Music on it at launch but we fully expect to support them when they’re ready to focus on the home listening...

iOS 8.4 to be released 8 AM PT on Tuesday, iTunes...

Apple directors have been somewhat talkative over the weekend about the imminent release of Apple Music. Former Beats Music CEO, who now works as a Senior Director of Apple Music, blogged about the product’s launch. He reminisces on the history of digital music and radio saying that seeing Apple Music on stage at WWDC ‘it was hard not to feel like the last 20+ years was leading to this day’.

Interestingly, Apple will be releasing iOS 8.4 at 8 AM on June 30th which includes the newly revamped Music app to support Apple Music. This is slightly earlier than the usual 10 AM release window. The change in scheduling seems to be in service of Beats 1, Apple’s worldwide radio station, which will start streaming from 9 AM on the same day.

Meanwhile, Eddy Cue has also been leaking some tidbits...

The antitheft Kensington Security Slot has been gone from all MacBooks aside from the classic 13-inch model for years now as Apple’s notebook designs have gotten increasingly thinner. Without that slot making a return, third party solutions like Maclock’s The Blade are needed to secure an unattended MacBook and prevent theft. Today we’re taking a look at The Blade and how it can secure even Apple’s thinnest notebook, the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display....

iPhone 6S New Feature: Force Touch

I'm not sure if Force Touch enough to convince an Android user like myself to switch, but there are definitely some interesting possibilities for app developers. A challenge for App developers will be to make apps compatible with both Force Touch iPhones and non-force touch iPhones. (Here's the Bloomberg report Forbes draws from.)

Caturday: MacPaw's Purr-Driven Development

Fixel and Hoover. Photo by Zyafa via Instagram

We already know that cats rule the Internet; now we're beginning to find that they're behind the scenes in a growing number of OS X and iOS software development companies. Julia Petryk from MacPaw sent us not only a wonderful email about office cats Fixel and Hoover but links to a bunch of fantastic photos, too! Here's her email:

You’d think that work at a progressive IT company takes some serious tech skills. But MacPaw, an app development company, has successfully proven this theory wrong. In MacPaw, you don’t even have to be human, let alone a techie, to make it to the official employee list. *

AppleCare+ Now Covers Batteries That Drop To 80%

Mark Wilson writes with news that Apple's AppleCare+ plan has been updated to address one of the biggest worries that people have about products with non-removeable batteries, and that become very expensive paperweights when the juice runs out. From BetaNews: "Previously, the extended warranty only covered batteries that would hold 50 percent charge or less. Now this has been updated so that you can request a free replacement within the coverage period if your device's battery is only able to hold 80 percent of full charge. The new terms to no apply to everyone — it all depends on when you bought your Apple device. If you bought your iPhone, iPad, iPod or Apple Watch before April 10, 2015, you're stuck with the old terms. I wish this change applied to my MacBook Air, with which I'm lucky to get 90 minutes of battery power.

Review: Akitio’s Thunder2 Dock fits a 7-port...

Up until recently, Thunderbolt 2 docks could mostly be described as “seen one, seen them all.” I’ve continued to like the idea of docks that fuse Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, and other peripherals together in a single Thunderbolt-to-Mac connection, but the docks I’ve tested from Belkin, Elgato, and Kanex are so similar in looks and features that they’d be hard to tell apart in a lineup. CalDigit’s dock looked very different from the rest, but functioned almost exactly the same. No Thunderbolt 2 dock has been small enough to consider “portable,” and CalDigit’s design is downright bag-defiant in shape.

That’s why it’s great...

Gadget Ogling: Vertical Vinyl, Kid-Friendly Video...


I enjoy music as much as anyone, though I'm no real audiophile and I have not an enormous passion for one format over another. I admire the romance of vinyl but find it unwieldy and cumbersome when digital recordings work just fine for me. The Floating Record turntable is beautiful, though, and I'm almost tempted to race to my record store to stock up on vinyl to play on one of these. Instead of playing records in their usual flat position, Floating Record clamps them in place vertically, so as to display them while they're playing.

Sid Hartman: Twins farm system suffering drought
No doubt Twins fans have been spoiled after the team has dominated the division, winning six of the past 10 American League Central titles under manager Ron Gardenhire.

Until this year, a Gardenhire-managed Twins team never had been more than eight games behind the leaders in the division.

However, sooner or later a season like this was going to happen, with the farm system finally running out of talent to feed the big club.

There aren t any players the caliber of a Torii Hunter, Johan Santana, Justin Morneau, Michael Cuddyer, Joe Mauer or Jason Kubel ready to come up from the farm system.

A scout recently put it this way, They ran out of gas after having it their way in the division for so long.

Low Power mode in iOS 9 saves battery life by...

Technology is a story of compromises and tradeoffs. We want devices with big, pixel-dense screens. We want snappy performance and lots of RAM. But we don’t want to have to keep one nervous eye on the battery-life indicator, or have to top off just to make it through the day.

iOS 9 includes a battery-saving Low Power mode, a first for Apple. This will let you flip one switch to eke out maximum power savings. iOS will shut down background activity and reduce performance to get you as much as three extra hours before the battery finally goes kaput. On Friday, MacRumors used Geekbench 3 to quantify just how big of a performance hit you can expect.

Self-Driving Cars Avoid Collision, as They Should


Two self-driving prototype vehicles, one operated by Google and the other operated by Delphi Automotive, earlier this week avoided a collision in Palo Alto, California. Neither car touched the other, but the incident spurred a number of rattled headlines over the so-called "near miss." In actuality, both vehicles responded as they were supposed to, the companies said in response to the media brouhaha. The incident occurred on Tuesday when John Absemeier, director of Delphi Automotive's Silicon Valley lab, was a passenger in his company's Audi Q5 as it drove along San Antonio Road.
