Billionaire Investor Carl Icahn Sells Entire Stake...

An anonymous reader writes: Billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn said he has sold his entire stake in Apple, citing the risk of China's influence on the stock. The report comes after Apple announced its first earnings decline in more than a decade, where Apple's revenue is dropping 26% year-over-year. Icahn is concerned with the barriers to trade that China's authoritarian regime might put in place. Icahn said he wasn't concerned with interference so much with the country's "relationship" with Apple. "The thing that I'm worried about here in China doesn't affect the whole market. I'm not talking about China's economic status right now. I'm talking about, could the thing with Apple escalate a little bit? And if that does, what does that mean to Apple's profits during the interim?" Icahn acquired a stake in the company almost three years ago, calling the investment a "no brainer." What caused him to sell his 45.8 million Apple shares (priced at $240 a share) was China's economic...

It was designed to enable developers to create apps that give users a more active role in managing their health. Apps developed through CareKit will let people track symptoms and medications, and share the information with their doctors to get a better picture of their health, Apple said.

Scosche conjures up the MagicMount PowerBank

Scosche Industries has announced the MagicMount PowerBank, which magnetically attaches to Lightning or micro USB-powered smartphones such as the iPhone to charge them when users are on the go.

It packs an internal 4000mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, capable of fully charging a dead smartphone, such as the iPhone 6/6s or Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, twice. Its built-in 2.1A output charges these devices safely and at the fastest rate possible, according to the folks at Scosche. The MagicMount PowerBank comes pre-charged and can be used right out of the box. It features four blue LED lights that indicate available battery power level.

The MagicMount PowerBank affixes to smartphones via “100% safe, powerful rare-earth magnets,” while the built-in Lightning or micro USB cable plugs into the device for charging. This connection provides a compact design.

The MagicMount PowerBank works with tablets such as the iPad, as well. It’s available now at...

FCC wireless auction begins, TV stations look to...

The groundwork for 5G communications in the United States has begun.

Or at least the carrier frequencies are beginning to be sold, thus allowing the infrastructure to be built.

Recently, television stations have volunteered to sell off their 126MHz “beach front” wireless spectrum to mobile carriers in an ongoing U.S. Federal Communications Commission auction, potentially bringing higher speeds and more reliable networks to customers.

The 126MHz spectrum represents the largest anticipated block for 5G networks according to comments made by the FCC on Friday. The FCC also stated that it is looking to auction off 10 blocks of 10MHz to mobile carriers and other interested bidders.

This low-band spectrum, in the 600MHz band, is...

The end of a bad week for AAPL

Just a few minutes ago, the closing bell rang and regular trading ended on the US markets. For Apple, it was a really bad week. How bad? Take a look at the 5-day chart:

At the beginning of the week, shares in AAPL were bouncing happily at about the $105 level and all was right with the world. Then what happened? Tuesday afternoon's earnings report showed an end to 13 years of continued record earnings, and the stock dropped like a rock in after-hours trading.

The rest of the week has been equally dismal, with hedge fund billionaire Carl Icahn dumping his holdings in Apple. For the week, Apple has dropped about $11.61 per share and lost about $61.6 billion in market capitalization. 

All is not lost, however. The company still had quarterly earnings of $50.6 billion and net income of $10.5 billion, both numbers that many companies would love to see. With a little luck and a lot of hard work, AAPL's share price will return to the high levels it has seen in the...

FBI Director in the Dark on iPhone Hack Details

FBI Director James Comey may have overstated how much the agency paid for the hack to get into San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook's iPhone 5c. Instead of the US$1.3 million he implied, the figure is reportedly actually less than a million dollars. Director Comey may not even know who the FBI paid, but that doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't know what's going on under his command.

The Smart Keypad accessory we looked at yesterday works to expand the capabilities of the original Smart Lock, and August has also recently released an entirely new standalone but companion product for the Smart Lock in the form of its new August Doorbell Cam — a home accessory intended to replace a standard doorbell with a smart device that provides two-way voice communication and one-way photo and video capabilities so you can see who is calling, even when you’re away from home.

FBI Bought $1M iPhone 5C Hack, But Doesn't Know...

An anonymous reader writes: The FBI has no idea how the hack used in unlocking the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone 5C works, but it paid a sum less than $1m for the mechanism, according to a report. Reuters, citing several U.S. government sources, note that the government intelligence agency didn't pay a value over $1.3m for purchasing the hack from professional hackers, as previously reported by many outlets. The technique can also be used as many times as needed without further payments, the report adds. The FBI director, James Comey, said last week that the agency paid more to get into the iPhone 5C than he will make in the remaining seven years and four months he has in his job, suggesting the hack cost more than $1.3m, based on his annual salary.

In a not yet released 2-hour interview with Automobile Mag‘s Georg Kache, Marchionne discusses the recent rumors of a FCA partnership with Google for self-driving cars and how the automaker wants to position itself in an industry disrupted by the likes of Apple, Google, Tesla and Uber. more…

“The next claim we hear is that we underpay compared to subscription services such as Spotify. But that argument confuses two different services: music subscriptions that cost £10 a month versus ad-supported music videos. It’s like comparing what a black cab driver earns from fares to what they earn showing ads in their taxi.”

GCHQ Has Disclosed Over 20 Vulnerabilities This Year

Joseph Cox, reporting for Motherboard: Earlier this week, it emerged that a section of Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the UK's signal intelligence agency, had disclosed a serious vulnerability in Firefox to Mozilla. Now, GCHQ has said it helped fix nearly two dozen individual vulnerabilities in the past few months, including in highly popular pieces of software like iOS. "So far in 2016 GCHQ/CESG has disclosed more than 20 vulnerabilities across a number of software products," a GCHQ spokesperson told Motherboard in an email. CESG, or the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, is the information security wing of GCHQ. Those issues include a kernel vulnerability in OS X El Captain v10.11.4, the latest version, that would allow arbitrary code execution, and two in iOS 9.3, one of which would have done largely the same thing, and the other could have let an application launch a denial of service attack.

As someone that often carries around a portable battery or two when on-the-go for extended periods of time (because I don’t particularly like the added bulk of using a battery case), this new MagicMount product from Scosche looks very interesting.

A super slim magnetic pad goes on your iPhone, and the battery pack then magnetically attaches to it when needed and connects to your device over a built-in Lightning connector. That gives you the benefits of a battery case by having the portable battery attached to the device, but also allows you to easily remove it once you’ve added enough juice to your device.

It really brings to the fore the fact that Apple Inc is completely different from AAPL.

External Link: Inside “Emojigeddon”

If you have noticed the ever-growing collection of emoji characters available on your Mac and iOS devices, the people to thank for them are members of the venerable Unicode Consortium, a non-profit group that has been working to standardize the character sets for all the world’s languages and writing systems since 1991. The recent work on emojis undertaken by the Consortium is not without cost, however: a number of members of the Consortium think that the emoji characters are distracting the group from focusing on other, more important work. The chronicles of “Emojigeddon” make for fascinating reading, even if you don’t know a PUNCTUS FLEXUS MARK from a CAT FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY.

This low-band spectrum, in the 600MHz band, is highly coveted by mobile carriers because it can cover long distances and penetrate walls and other obstacles. Mobile carriers have pushed for more spectrum as their customers’ network use keeps growing, and the low-band spectrum will help carriers roll out faster 5G service,...

New data from TrendForce shows that worldwide tablet shipments in the first quarter of 2016 totaled 35.2 million units, translating to a 35% drop from the previous quarter and a 7.9% drop from a year ago. Despite what many press reports insinuate, slowing tablet sales are affecting also manufacturers, not just Apple. Plus, the research group’s report has good news and bad news about Apple’s iPad Pro.

TrendForce notebook analyst Anita Wang said branded tablet vendors’ shipment results were mediocre following their impressive fourth-quarter performances that were supported by the peak season demand. As large-size smartphones continue to erode the tablet market, the trend of tablets becoming even larger has become more apparent, she adds.

Apple was still the leading brand by shipments in the first quarter with 10.3 million units shipped, amounting to a 36% quarterly decline and an 18.8% year-on-year decrease.

The Supreme Court has adopted amendments to a rule to give judges the authority to issue warrants to remotely search computers whose locations are concealed using technology.

The proposed move had been criticized by civil rights groups and companies like Google that said it threatened to undermine the privacy rights and computer security of Internet users.

The top court has approved changes to the Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure, including Rule 41, which with some exceptions prohibits a federal judge from issuing a search warrant outside of the judge’s district. The change in the rule was proposed by the Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure at the request of the Department of Justice.

The FBI paid under $1 million for the technique used to unlock the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters - a figure smaller than the $1.3 million the agency's chief initially indicated the hack cost, reports Reuters, quoting unnamedU.S. government sources.

The article adds that the FBI will be able to use the technique to unlock other iPhone 5C models running iOS 9 - the specifications of the shooter's phone - without additional payment to the contractor who provided it. The Justice Department unlocked the iPhone in March with the help of the contractor after Apple Inc refused to bypass the device's encryption features on grounds it could undermine security for all users.

In related news, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted unanimously to pass the Email Privacy Act, a bill that has the backing of a coalition of major technology businesses including Apple...

The Outback Solo a handsome, retro, functional iPad/...

When I pack my iPad or MacBook into WaterField Designs' Outback Solo, I feel a need to put on an Indiana Jones-style fedora or a cowboy hat. Yes, the waxed canvas version of the Muzetto line is that inspiring. 

The Outback -- which radiates quality and top-notch design -- is available in dark brown canvas, a choice of six accent colors and five sizes. With its retro look/feel, it's incredible to look at and touch. Even better, the Outback is as durable a non-padded bag as I've tried. When scratches and marks do appear, they can be softened by applying some heat from a hair dryer -- which only adds to its well-worn look.

The Outback Solo is a vertical messenger bag that sports one main compartment to hold the iPad, a back pocket for paperwork, a pocket under the flap, a zippered interior pocket for stashing cash, and an adjustable strap. A gold liner lights up the interior, which makes it easy to see contents. There'...

I'll take mine with pulp (PulpMotion, that is)

By Frank Petrie

So, you're getting tire of your homemade movies and wish there was something you could use to give them more "pop." Look no further than PulpMotion from Aquafadas. The easiest way to describe this app is to think of "themes"' in iMovie on Mac OS X (10.8 or higher). Aquafadas has taken the idea of "themes" to whole new heights.

PulpMotion is an $129 collection of animations that you can drag and drop onto your existing photos or movies into to complete the theme of your choice. Themes range from gorgeous title displays to striking animations; some artistic, some dazzling computer effects. 

There is sure to be something in the selection to suit your taste. From modern computer animation to family themes to drawn animation, all themes are of high quality. You can also add music to your masterpiece, from the user, friendly title bar/tool bar.

For the icing...

Streaming of Drake’s latest album Views has hit Apple Music, and will be exclusive to the streaming service for one week, the rapper announced on Beats 1. This confirmed an earlier Buzzfeed report.

Drake told Zane Lowe that the album is a very personal one, based very much on his own feelings about himself and his home city of Toronto.

I’m a very honest person. I can’t write fiction.

The short one-week exclusivity period was no doubt influenced by the fact that Drake was the most-streamed artist on Spotify last...

Today I’m pictured in a version of the popular “this is your brain; this is your brain on drugs” t-shirt. I received it at some Macworld Expo over the years, but, honestly, I can’t remember which one. Can anyone help me out?

In a new report, Reuters this evening is claiming that the FBI paid less than $1 million for the tool it used to unlock the San Bernardino gunman’s iPhone 5c. Apple, of course, denied to create a tool to do so, so the FBI went through a third-party to gain access. The report, citing “several U.S. government sources,” further claims that the technique can be used on any iPhone 5c running iOS 9.

Carl Icahn Isn’t Wrong about Apple in China

Carl Icahn told CNBC Thursday that he sold his considerable stake in Apple Inc.—some 0.8 percent of shares at his height—on concerns about Apple's business in China, though it might be more accurate to characterize it as concerns that China's government could have a deleterious affect on Apple's business in that market. Bryan Chaffin isn't always a fan of Mr. Icahn's, but in this instance, the mogul isn't wrong.

Carl Icahn sells entire Apple stake

But Icahn, who owned 45.8 million Apple shares at the end of last year, said China’s economic slowdown and worries about how China could become more prohibitive in doing business triggered his decision to exit his position entirely.

“We no longer have a position in Apple. Tim Cook did a great job. I called him this morning to tell him that and he was a little sorry, obviously. But I told him it’s a great company,” Icahn said. “In Apple today as opposed to six months or a year ago, in this one, there’s no need for activism because I think they have a great management. But you worry a little bit, maybe more than a little, about China’s attitude.”

Probably the best news Apple has had in a while.

I'll just share a link to the Bill of Rights in case any of our Senators need a refresher.

The patent filing, first spotted by AppleInsider, covers an iMessage feature that would highlight an autocorrected word. The person who’s reading your message won’t be able to see what you intended to type, but at least they’...

The brain child of industrial designer Yves Béhar and tech entrepreneur Jason Johnson, the original August Smart Lock was a revolutionary entry into the home automation market when it made its debut over two years ago — a smart door lock that brought iPhone integration to just about any deadbolt in an elegant design, and it seemed only natural that when Apple unveiled HomeKit, support for the August Smart Lock wouldn't be far behind. Announced last fall and released today, the August Smart Lock HomeKit Enabled ($229) is a second-generation version of the popular lock that sports the same classic design while adding ties into Apple's home automation ecosystem. Alongside the new lock, August has also released a new Smart Keypad accessory ($79) that provides the ability to unlock the August Smart Lock using a numeric code.

Uber might charge you extra for making your driver...

Next time you hail an Uber, make sure you’re ready to head out the door or it might cost you. 

Uber is considering adding new extra charges for passengers who make their Uber drivers wait longer than two minutes. According to The Wall Street Journal, these charges will accrue on a per-minute basis, starting from the time the Uber app notifies passengers that their ride has arrived.

In addition, Uber is decreasing the no-penalty cancellation window from five minutes down to two minutes. And passengers who make their drivers wait longer than five minutes without cancelling could be penalized with a $10 no-show fee. Basically, you’ll have two minutes to cancel the ride after requesting it, and two minutes to show up when it arrives, if you want to avoid these new extra charges.
