Apple Patent Filing Points To a Keyboard With No Keys

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Digital Trends: Apple's patent, titled "Configurable Force-Sensitive Input Structure for Electronic Devices," was filed in September 2015 and was recently made available to the public on April 7th. It states that this all-in-one input interface consists of a metal contact layer, and a sense layer combined with a drive layer mounted underneath. According to the patent, the sense and drive layers detect a force exerted on the metal contact layer. This is accomplished by using an array of pixels on the sense and drive layers that determine an input location when active pixels are aligned on both layers. The user then gets a response to his or her action thanks to a haptic feedback module and a light guide layer that lights up the "keys" through extremely tiny holes in the metal surface. The components of the force-input sensitive "structure" are enclosed within the device's chassis; thus the only exposed portion is the contact surface itself....

New Drake album to be exclusive (initially) to Apple...

Drake — a rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor — is releasing his new album, Views from the 6, exclusively on Apple Music when it arrives April 29, notes Pitchfork. The exclusivity will be for a limited time, but there’s no indication of how long that will be.

Drake has been with Apple Music since its inception. His hit song Hotline Bling was first released on Apple Music before any other streaming service. Also, Drake’s OVO Sound radio show is an Apple Music exclusive, and currently only available on Apple’s Beats 1 radio station.

Don't expect Apple to give Apple Watch 2 a...

Every other year, Apple redesigns its iPhones. It looks like the Apple Watch will be on the same biennial hardware overhaul schedule, if KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is on target (and he usually is).

Kuo’s latest research note came out today with guidance on the Apple Watch 2, and he notes that the second-gen model will have “limited changes to form factor design.”

Expect internal improvements, though Kuo didn’t say what those might be. We can guess, though. Reports last summer indicated that an Apple Watch 2 was already in the works with a Wi-Fi chip that would allow the watch to function on its own without an iPhone nearby. That would make the device a whole lot more useful than...

Ford After Dark: Self-Driving Car 'Sees'...


Ford on Monday revealed that it has been testing its Fusion Hybrid autonomous research vehicle with no headlights on remote desert roads at night. While such a task would be quite perilous for a human driver, it was an important step in developing a fully autonomous vehicle, the company said. The test vehicle relied not on cameras, which require light, but instead on LiDAR technology for navigation. LiDAR worked with the car's virtual driver software to navigate the pitch-black and winding roads at the Ford Arizona Proving Ground.

Review: iPhone SE is just a (really nice) phone for...

There was a time just a few years back when the 4-inch screen was considered Apple’s big phone. After five generations of 3.5-inch screens, Apple made the iPhone taller in 2012 with the 4-inch iPhone 5. The width remained the same in a “common sense” move that maintained easy one-hand use for most people, and the 16:9 aspect ratio framed video playback perfectly. Two years later, Apple upgraded the iPhone with two new models: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, but no new 4-inch iPhone until now.

iPhone SE is the first upgrade to this size since the iPhone 5s in 2013. It’s a huge specs upgrade if you’re coming from an iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, or earlier. And in some cases like mine, iPhone SE is mostly on par with Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus flagships. But there are a few limitations of varying importance plus a few oddities that should be considered before buying … even with the relatively competitive price tag on iPhone SE.

iPhone SE users reporting Bluetooth sound issues

It's never nice to hear about problems with a new Apple product, but that's the case with the new iPhone SE. The Apple support forums are currently showing a number of reports of distorted sound during phone calls made with the iPhone paired through Bluetooth to a wireless headphone or car audio system.

The problem exists with both iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.3.1, and it's happening everywhere that the phone is being sold. Not every user is having the problem, so it could be associated with Bluetooth chipsets made by a certain vendor. Restoring the device, clearing and then restoring pairing, and other changes do not work to fix the problem.

Apple is aware of the situation and has given it a high priority for resolution.

Learning to Love Virtual Reality


At Nvidia's technology conference last week, I saw a variety of new technologies showcased. From deep learning systems -- computers that arguably are smarter than we are -- to self-driving cars that can drive better than we can, the technological advances on display made me feel just a tad inadequate. One way to get over my sudden concern over obsolescence was to check out the virtual reality showcase. With the realization of all the free time I'm likely to get, the prospect of computers doing what I used to do suddenly didn't look so bad.

Cellebrite, the company that is believed to have been hired by the FBI and successfully unlocked the San Bernadino shooter’s iPhone 5c, says that it is “optimistic” that it will also be able to access a locked iPhone 6.

Earlier this year, Italian architect Leonardo Fabbretti met with the company last week to see whether it could help gain access to his dead son’s iPhone. Before his death from bone cancer, 13-year-old Dama Fabbretti had added his father’s thumbprint to allow him access – but the phone required the passcode after a restart, and his father didn’t know the code.

Apple had told him it was impossible to access the iPhone without the passcode, but Fabretti stated that Cellebrite has already made progress.

Apple has included the additions at a steady clip in recent weeks, indicating that the company wouldn’t hold off and introduce them in bulk. Information for Sydney and Boston was added last year.

In the Brooklyn case, Magistrate Judge James Orenstein has already said that the Justice Department overstepped its authority in trying to use the All Writs Act of 1789. But in the Boston case, a federal judge has directed Apple to assist the FBI. In short, it ain’t over till the Supreme Court rules.

In an op-ed, Quartz's Mike Murphy writes that Apple Watch, the Cupertino-based company's first wearable device, hasn't been the success the company was hoping it to be. Apple unveiled the Apple Watch alongside the iPhone 6 at a media conference in September 2014. It wasn't, however, until April 2015 that the company began selling it. The Apple Watch has received a mixed response from people. While some have found the design premium-looking, almost everyone has complained about the battery life. Many have found the health-centric features of Apple Watch useful. though the lack of apps, in general, is a downer for many. Apple, which usually doesn't miss boasting sales number, remains tight-lipped on exactly how many Apple Watch units it has sold. Murphy writes: Every Apple product in the last 15 years or so has been two things: desirable and useful. They've made it easier for people to be creative, listen to a lot of music on the go, communicate with anyone in the world or find out...

Today is Eight Track Tape Day; celebrate accordingly...

Today is Eight Track Tape Day, which is designed to bring back fond memories of the sixties and seventies. During this era, eight track tapes — based on a magnetic tape sound recording — were very popular. 

America's love of the automobile, was a driving force in creating the demand for musical cassette formats. For those who grew up in this era, an eight track tape player in your home and your car was an essential. It was eventually — and, thankfully, replaced by cassette and other formats for storing music. Let’s be honest: eight-tracks were pretty crappy. The tape broke easily, and sometimes songs would just stop as the cassette jumped to the next track before the tune continued.

I had an eight-track player. And I was happy when cassette tapes replaced eight-tracks, and ecstatic when CDs arrived. I still like me some CDs, but also buy a lot of music at iTunes. 

But just about anything that followed was better than the eight-track.

WhatsApp outpaces iMessage on verification and...

Apple’s security and encryption strategies have received a lot of attention lately, from the way in which iOS devices’ data are locked down to how Apple doesn’t have the encryption keys the iMessage and FaceTime systems employ to secure its users’ communications to how Secure Enclave keeps our secrets secret. But WhatsApp, an app-based text, video, and voice service with a billion users, took the spotlight Tuesday with the news that its users have end-to-end encryption as well.

WhatsApp has a couple of legs—and maybe an arm or two—up on Apple, which has designed iMessage and FaceTime to exclude itself from the equation. Both Apple and WhatsApp, acquired by Facebook in 2014, can’t gain access to the encryption keys used to secure communications sessions. But WhatsApp’s approach and user interface go even farther, in ways that Apple should be considering—and, for...

The “surging popularity” of music streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube has lifted recorded music sales higher in Australia for the first time since 2012, according to Australian Industry Recording Association's annual wholesale revenue figures. The stats, seen first by Fairfax Media show a 5% jump in total revenues to $334 million, driven by a more-than-doubling in streaming revenues to $71.1 million.

Some analysts think this means end of a decade-long downward trend for the industry. The traditional media sector was hit first and hardest by the digital revolution, but could be the first to re-emerge with steady growth, though at lower levels.

Apple says it won’t sue the FBI for paying another firm for tools it used to hack into an iPhone owned by one of the San Bernadino, California, shooters, reports TechnoBuffalo. The iPhone maker says the method the FBI used won’t work on newer smartphones. 

Questions are still lingering over how the FBI found a backdoor into the device, but the agency reportedly hired Israeli-firm Cellebrite for technical assistance in accessing the phone. Until they were able to hack into the iPhone, government lawyers have insisted they needed Apple to write special software so that the FBI could bypass the security features on the iPhone being used by the shooter, Syed Farook, and obtain information critical to their ongoing terrorism investigation.

When Apple released iOS 9.3.1, it removed the ability to keep Night Shift and Low Power Mode enabled simultaneously. The ability to turn on both features was already hidden and only possible by using Siri, but the iOS 9.3.1 update made it so that Siri would disable one of them before enabling another.

We’ve found a workaround that once again allows you to use both modes at once. It’s not as easy as it once was, but it’s still fairly straightforward for those of you who desire to use Low Power Mode and Night Shift mode at the same time. more…

Communicating via digital means—such as text message or Twitter—can be a bit of a minefield. After all, without the nonverbal cues of face-to-face interaction, it can be hard to tell whether that period at the end of that text message was an attempt at good grammar or if the other person is just a jerk

But proper punctuation isn't the only thing subject to misinterpretation: Researchers with the University of Minnesota's Grouplens project found that the way different devices and platforms display emoji characters could completely change the perceived meaning of a message.

Caturday: Gracie has cold feet

Gracie. Photo courtesy of Don Moody.

One of our TUAW Caturday pinups, the gorgeous Gracie, is back again. Sadly, owner Don Moody reports that the new and more energy-efficient AirPort Extreme isn't to Gracie's liking.

“Thought I would send this fairly recent picture of Gracie sitting on the computer desk next to my MacBook Air and a couple of my Apple Displays. Some of you may remember Gracie from a TUAW Caturday picture of her sleeping on an Airport Extreme from October 2013. Since we upgraded our Airport Extreme from the previous model to the current model she no longer has that nice little warm surface to sleep on at her disposal. What’s really good about Gracie is she is very respectful of our computers and screens and does not lay all over the keyboards and mousepads. She’s a great cat and can be found around our Macs throughout the day. ”

Variation in Depiction of Same Emoji on Different...

How your device depicts an emoji depends on the operating system it is running. The same "smiley face" emoticon, for instance, appears slightly different when viewed on an iPhone, an Android-powered handset, and a Windows Phone-powered handset. This variation can cause miscommunication between people (PDF), a study by GroupLens Research has found. The research lab in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota said that sometimes this can cause people to misinterpret the emotion and the meaning of emoji-based communication "quite significantly." The conclusion reads: Emoji are used alongside text in digital communication, but their visual nature leaves them open to interpretation. In addition, emoji render differently on different platforms, so people may interpret one platform's rendering differently than they interpret another platform's. Psycholinguistic theory suggests that interpretation must be consistent between two people in order to...

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is text messages and iMessages. Sure, it’s possible to restore text messages if you’re willing to backup and restore the entire contents of your iPhone, but what if you wish to perform a fresh install of iOS and then restore messages?

Fortunately, backing up and restoring SMS texts and iMessages on an individual basis is possible, as long as you’re willing to take some time to follow our step-by-step guide.

UPPERCASE debuts KRADL for the 12-inch MacBook

UPPERCASE Designs has introduced its KRADL vertical stand for the 12-inch MacBook. It holds the laptop in a vertical position to free up desk space. It's available to match all three 12-inch Mac Book finishes: gold, silver and space gray.

The KRADL's design holds the laptop at seven degrees from vertical. The seven-degree tilt allows easier docking and removal of the laptop along with reduced wobble. Its shape makes the KRADL nearly "disappear" when the 12-inch MacBook is docked inside. An anti-slip silicone pad on the KRADL's base protects the desk surface and prevents movement.

X-Doria has expanded the Defense Shield for iPhone 6s and Defense Edge for Apple Watch with the introduction of its newest style: Sport. The Defense series merges polycarbonate, soft rubber and anodized aluminum.

X-Doria utilizes machined metal as opposed to plastic to ensure its Defense Shield provides military-level drop protection that has been tested to survive 6.6 foot drops on concrete. The perimeter of the iPhone is protected by machined aluminum while the inside is wrapped with soft rubber, protecting from drops and ensuring the metal never touches the device. 

The screen is protected from drops and surface scratches by an oversized raised lip, and the rear is shielded by a clear polycarbonate, protecting the device without covering it up. The snap-on construction requires no tools to assemble.

Defense Edge guards for Apple Watch combine a machined aluminum exterior and functional design, keeping the device protected...

Apple Won't Sue FBI To Reveal Hack Used To...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from ZDNet: Apple will not pursue legal action against the US government to discover how federal agents broke into an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters. Attorneys for Apple speaking on background during a media briefing call on Friday said that it believed the method used to unlock the iPhone 5c would be short lived. It follows similar comments by FBI director James Comey who said in a speech on Thursday that the hack used to unlock the encrypted phone works on a "narrow slice" of devices. Apple attorneys said that the company is "confident" that the security weakness that the government alleges to have found will have a "short shelf life." The FBI's hack in the San Bernardino case would not help agents access a newer iPhone 5s used by a drug dealer in New York, where Apple faces a similar case against the government.

The ACLU is undertaking a nationwide project to uncover information about All Writs Act warrants being issued “to attempt to conscript Apple or Google to break into personal electronic devices.” So far they’ve found more than 60 cases in 20 states, stretching back to 2008.

Apple polishes the developer portal

Developers logging into developer.apple.com have a nice, shiny new website to work with. The developer portal has been redesigned, not only bringing it in line with the general look and feel of the other Apple websites, but making it easier to find information and online tools. 

The left sidebar of the site now places most important information one or two clicks away. The sidebar lists program resources like membership details, certificates, IDs and profiles, iTunes Connect, CloudKit Dashboard, and Code-Level Support. Below, links with access to documentation, the developer forums, bug reporter, and news and updates are once again a tap away.

While it's not a total rewrite of the entire developer portal, to me it seems to make things a bit easier to find.
