Understanding Apple’s marginalization of the Mac

Those of us who “love” our Macs or need them to make a living certainly have tre[idation with the seeming lack of direction Apple is showing with the Mac. I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom or that the Mac is going away any time soon though.

Apple Captures Record 91 Percent of Global...

Apple has captured a record share of profits in the global smartphone industry in the third quarter, according to new research, despite grappling with falling iPhone sales. From a report on CNBC:Third-quarter smartphone operating profit reached $9 billion globally of which Apple took 91 percent of the share, Strategy Analytics said in a note on Tuesday. This amounts to $8.19 billion for the U.S. technology giant. Apple has the highest profit margins in the smartphone industry thanks to a loyal brand following and the ability to price its iPhones at a premium. And the figures come even after Apple reported three straight quarters of iPhone sales declines. Sat a long way behind Apple is China's Huawei which managed to grab 2.4 percent of global operating profit share in the smartphone market, accounting for $200 million, according to Strategy Analytics. Chinese start-up brands Vivo and OPPO are in third and fourth place, both capturing 2.2 percent of global smartphone profit each....

Kanex GoPower Watch is a handy portable battery pack that can charge your Apple Watch on-the-go without extra cables or adapters. That’s because it features an MFi (Apple certified) Apple Watch magnetic charger on the battery pack, which makes it an all-in-one solution. It’s rather pricey for a portable battery pack at $99, but it gets the job done if you want the most convenient way to power your Apple Watch over a weekend away from electricity.

In an interview with the New York Times, President elect Donald Trump says he told Apple CEO Tim Cook that he wants the company to build iPhones and other products in the U.S. — and is willing to offer a large tax cut to make it happen.

Here’s his statement: I got a call from Tim Cook at Apple, and I said, ‘Tim, you know one of the things that will be a real achievement for me is when I get Apple to build a big plant in the United States, or many big plants in the United States, where instead of going to China, and going to Vietnam, and going to the places that you go to, you’re making your product right here.’ He said, ‘I understand that.’ I said: ‘I think we’ll create the incentives for you, and I think you’re going to do it.

Federal auto safety regulators want Apple and other makers of handheld devices to add a driver mode to modify or block certain apps and features to keep a driver’s attention on the road, according to the New York Times.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is introducing the initiative due to growing concerns about the distractions posed by smartphones and other gadgets that Americans are using while behind the wheel.

“Your smartphone becomes so many different things that it’s not just a communication device,” Anthony Foxx, secretary of the Transportation Department, said in an interview. “Distraction is still a problem. Too many people are dying and being injured on our roadways.”

The guidelines call on manufacturers like Apple and Samsung to design future operating systems that limit the functionality and...

Analyst: 2017 iPhone will have a glass case and...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks the 2017 iPhones will sport a glass case and wireless charging. 

“We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging. In order to ensure a superior performance, we believe it is most appropriate for EMS suppliers to develop and make the wireless charger because then a comprehensive test can be conducted,” he writes. “As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger.

Whether Apple plans to include a wireless charging cable with every smartphone is unclear, but he predicts that production will start at an introductory level next year and ramp up going into 2018. In a...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone profits reached US$9 billion in total during the third quarter of 2016. Apple dominated and captured a record 91% share of all smartphone profits worldwide, note the research group.

“We estimate the global smartphone industry realized total operating profits of US$9.4 billion during Q3 2016,” says Linda Sui, director at Strategy Analytic. “Apple’s ability to maximize pricing and minimize production cost is hugely impressive, and the iPhone continues to generate monster profits. Huawei, Vivo and OPPO are the next three most profitable smartphone vendors globally this quarter, but they are still a long way behind Apple.”

Three of the world’s top four most profitable smartphone vendors are currently Chinese. Huawei, Vivo and OPPO have not only improved their smartphone product lineups this year, they have also enhanced their...

Last year, Apple SVP of Retail Angela Ahrendts said the company was backing away from Black Friday promotions because “being good to your employees will always be good for your business.”

iOS developer creates functional version of “Doom”...

The Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro notebooks has its fans and its detractors, but the fact that developer Adam Bell was able to run a copy of the classic shooter “Doom” on it is nothing short of awesome.

Keep in mind that since the Touch Bar is essentially a mini Apple Watch jammed above the notebook keyboard, there’s no reason it too can’t get involved. Bell stepped up to the plate for this one, uploading the following killer video to YouTube:

Granted, the Touch Bar’s 2170 x 60 resolution doesn’t make it easy, although the game’s sound effects are so evocative you could presumably navigate levels based on audio alone. In a more useful iteration, Bell also dropped Doom’s HUD onto the Touch Bar, which certainly fits a lot better, but would be a bit of a pain to use...

Satechi introduces new Smart Charging Stand

Satechi has introduced the Smart Charging Stand, a multifunctional four-port USB charger. It sports one internal USB charging port and three USB ports on the base of the stand. 

The stand includes three adapters for the Apple Watch, Fitbit Blaze and smartphones. To use, you choose choose the required adapter, fasten it to the station lid, then you can juice up your devices.

The AKG Y50 on-ear headphone beats the competition

At first glance, the US$99.95 AKG Y50 looks like a Beats wannabe. However, place it on your ears for a listen and you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how good the on-ear headphone sounds. It Beats (pun intended) every headphone that I've tested in its price range.

The Y50's closed-back, ear-cup design is lightweight, comfortable, and cancels out all external sound. The headphone appears to be relatively rugged despite its streamlined build. 

A 1.2m detachable cable connects to the right earcup, providing freedom of movement and allowing you to use the Y50 with a variety of devices. The inline remote/mic keeps things hands-free. Unfortunately, the remote is a single-button model so you can't adjust the volume with it though you can, of course, navigate tracks, play or pause music, and answer and end calls depending on the number of taps you perform on the remote...

When the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar were announced, I was intrigued by the prospect of replacing my 27-inch iMac AND 12-inch MacBook with one machine. I haven’t made the plunge just yet (I want to see how those LG UltraFine displays look and work); however, I sold my MacBook and purchased one of the new 15-inch MB Pros. 

I’ve been using it instead of my iMac as my primary work machine for the past five days. When it comes to performance, I’ve noticed no slow-down at all.

My 27-inch iMac with Retina Display has 16GB of RAM, a quad-core 3.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor, an AMD Radeon R9 with 2GB of memory, and a 2TB Fusion Drive.

KGI: Apple to incorporate wireless charging into ‘...

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, the 2017 iPhone will add wireless charging for the first time. Instead of plugging in a cable, iPhone 8 owners will be able to charge their batteries using an inductive pad similar to how the Apple Watch charges. Although many Android phones support wireless charging with plastic and metal chassis, the report says Apple’s switch to a glass casing for iPhone 8 will enable wireless charging at fast speeds with minimum disruption from frequency interference.

The report says that Apple may not bundle a wireless charger with every model — it may be limited to the more expensive, higher-capacity SKUs — but expects Apple to adopt wireless charging aggressively through 2018. Plans are up in the air at this point, of course, but buyers of the low-end models may find they have to buy an additional accessory if they want to charge their phone wirelessly.

A new bug in iOS has surfaced that will cause any iOS device to freeze when trying to view a certain .mp4 video in Safari.

We won't link the infectious video here for obvious reasons, but you can take our word for it when we say that it really does render your device unusable. It's not apparently clear as to why this happens. The likely reason is that it's simply a corrupted video that's some sort of memory leak and when played, iOS isn't sure how to properly handle it, but there's like more to it than that. Because of the nature of the flaw, it isn't specific to a certain iOS build. As you can see in the video below, playing the video on an iPhone running as far back as iOS 5 will cause the device to...

India: Apple Pay to be available to customers who...

Apple is teaming up with Ola, India’s largest ride-hailing company, to make Apple Music available to customers who order a ride, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Ola — which also announced partnerships with Sony, Qualcomm and Audio Compass —  said the service will be made available in some of its vehicles as part of a platform called Ola Play. When passengers book an Ola ride, they will be able to interact with an in-car tablet to control the vehicle’s air conditioning, music, watch videos and even read ebooks. 

“Cars were initially built for the driver,” Ola Chief Executive Bhavish Agarwal said during a news conference reported on by India media outlet YourStory. “But with ride-sharing, the control needs to be there for the passenger...

The Apple Daily Report for Nov. 22, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

According to numerous reports said to be out of Apple headquarters, the company's Chief Design Officer Jony Ive hasn't contributing much to Apple's consumer goods design as of late, and has been more interested in architecture and similar projects for the last few years.

According to a New York Times piece, Apple now directly employs 80,000 people in the U.S. The company also uses 69 supplier facilities in 33 states to manufacture parts for its products employs 6,000...

Notable apps and app updates for Nov. 22, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

macOS Apps/Updates

Celemony has released Melodyne 4.1, an update of the audio editing app for macOS and Windows. This update brings improvements to all editions, including a new playback type for high-pitched monophonic instruments, a command for separating notes as trills and additional keyboard shortcuts.

On Jony Ive’s Role at Apple

Abdel Ibrahim, writing for AppAdvice:

In the latest episode of The Talk Show, John Gruber
discusses with Six Colors founder, Jason Snell, about Jony Ive’s
role in the company and how it’s changed in the years since Steve
Jobs’ passing. He specifically makes mention that he’s heard that
Ive’s role has changed in a way where he’s not as much involved in
the design of physical hardware as he used to be.

I’ve heard that he has lately been checked out or not as directly
involved with product design and that he’s been largely focused on
architecture, meaning the spaceship campus and the new stores. And
that maybe the other top-level executive who’s been working the
most with Ive is Angela Arhendts.

The comment comes on the back of Apple releasing...

Don't play this video link unless you want your...

Beware the 5-second video that will bring your iPhone to a complete halt.

This week, a corrupt video link with the potential to crash any iOS device started making the rounds. Clicking on the MP4 link in question will play a video that will cause your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to overload and eventually freeze to the point of making the Home button, the power button, and the touchscreen totally unresponsive. The only way to get your iOS device working properly is to perform a hard reset.

According to The Verge, clicking the link generates a loop that will force your iPhone to crash about 10 seconds after the short video ends. The Verge tested the link on several devices running iOS 10.1, as well as the iOS 10.2 beta. They all became unresponsive.

Apple announces a one-day sale for Black Friday

Apple doesn’t always get in on Black Friday, the unofficial shopping holiday the day after Thanksgiving. In some previous years, the company has offered modest discounts on some products, or a free gift card with purchase, but last year the company sat Black Friday out all together.

This year, Apple’s in. The company announced a “one-day shopping event” with a teaser on its website. We just don’t know much else.

Apple’s online store already suggests gift ideas for various people, like add-on iPhone lenses for photography buffs, microphones and instruments for musicians, and game controllers and high-tech toys for kids. So Apple could organize its sale by the people on your shopping list, or just help you find the perfect accessories for people who own iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple TV.

A little more than four months after moving to a new apartment, I'm at long last about to start setting up my office. Goodbye, Ikea dining table. Hello, fancy new desk. When I actually have my new setup, I'd like to have a monitor at long last to complement my laptop. AOC's latest is under serious consideration. The AG352QCX is a 35-inch, curved behemoth with two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI 2.0 input, VGA, DVI, audio in and out ports, and DisplayPort 1.2. That's plenty enough for most people's purposes.

The best 4K & 5K USB-C and Thunderbolt 3...

We already gave you the rundown on requirements for connecting your old DisplayPort and HDMI displays to the new MacBook Pro, and if you need a new monitor now, the best option going forward is probably to go all-in on USB-C. That goes not only for MacBook Pro or 12-inch MacBook users, but also anyone who wants to be future-proofed as Apple moves to Thunderbolt 3 on other devices going forward (most displays have HDMI and/or DisplayPort for your other Macs). 

These are the best 4K and 5K USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 displays available so far:

Fedora 25 Now Available -- Makes It Easier To Switch...

Reader BrianFagioli writes: After the release of both alpha and beta versions, Fedora 25 is officially here and ready for production machines. If you aren't familiar with the popular Linux-based operating system, please know that it is the distribution of choice for the founder of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds. One of the most endearing qualities of Fedora is its focus on only offering truly free open source software. Also, you can always count on a very modern version of the Linux kernel being available. Despite having very up-to-date packages, it is always very stable too. My favorite aspect, however, is the commitment to the GNOME desktop environment; other DEs are available, though. The team says, "Fedora 25 Workstation now makes it easier to for Windows and OS X users to get started, with Fedora Media Writer serving as the default download for those operating systems. This tool helps users find and download the current Fedora release and write it to removable media, like a...

Nope, Apple will never license iOS

In a 2014 article for ZDNet, Senior Technology Editor Jason Perlow said that, with consumer iPad growth tapping out, Apple needs to do the "unthinkable" to push into a line of business applications and vertical markets. The "unthinkable" is licensing iOS.

However, this will never happen. Perlow says that, for Apple to grow tablet share, it has to expand into additional markets. And the largest market of opportunity is enterprise line of business applications and verticals. He may be right in that regard, but Apple will NEVER license iOS under CEO Tim Cook's leadership. That's a lesson he learned from his mentor, Steve Jobs.

In 1997, after returning to Apple, Jobs killed the Mac clone program implemented by former CEO Gil Amelio. The program was intended to expand the market penetration of the Mac. From 1995 through mid-1997 companies such as Power Computing, Motorola, Radius, DayStar, and UMAX made desktops running...

Apple's new MacBook Pros have gotten some negative feedback (see my review on Monday), but their hardware upgrades and new Touch Bar are expected to make them hot sellers. In fact, with the shipment growth, Apple is expected to return as the fourth largest vendor worldwide in the fourth quarter, according to the DigiTimes Research Group.

Combined shipments of US-based top-tier vendors - HP, Dell and Apple - will account for over 50% of worldwide shipments, notes DigiTimes. Although Chromebooks and China-based brand vendors are expected to perform weakly in the quarter, worldwide notebook shipments are estimated to reach 41.65 million units in the fourth quarter, up 6.4% sequentially thanks to, in part, demand from the year-end holidays is expected to pick up strongly.

Facebook's latest experiment: Helping you find...

Facebook says it’s not a media company, but it just might be turning into a Wi-Fi finder service. Users of the social network’s iOS app report seeing a new feature in the More section that lets them find nearby public Wi-Fi access points.

The feature does not appear to be widely available at the moment, which means this is probably something Facebook is only testing. The social network tests numerous features all the time but this one is particularly notable.

As The Next Web points out, helping users find public Wi-Fi could enable more people to use Facebook Live. If your cellular connection isn’t strong, a nearby Wi-Fi location can be a big help—unless, of course, your Facebook Live broadcast is dependent on your specific location.

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). 

Gameloft’s Asphalt racing series plodded along for nearly a decade, releasing several entries that were fine but never quite great—and then Asphalt 8: Airborne bucked that trend to a rather startling degree. The 2013 release finally launched the series into the upper echelon of mobile racers, delivering the best arcade driving experience on iPhone and iPad, plus it sold for only $1 at launch. Just a couple months later, it was turned into a free-to-play game.

Here’s another idea for saving the Mac from Apple

It’s been suggested that Apple needs to bring back the Mac clone program or else show its personal computer line some serious love. Here’s another good idea:

 Adam C. Engst, in a TidBITS column dubbed “Understanding Apple’s Marginalization of the Mac,” says Apple could make a Mac division a wholly owned subsidiary of the company a la FileMaker, Inc. Here’s his suggestion:

“Apple … could take FileMaker Inc. as a model. FileMaker, which emerged from the ashes of Claris, is a wholly owned subsidiary, but since the needs of the database development market differ significantly from those of Apple’s other markets, it has presumably made sense to give FileMaker more autonomy than other apps. Even if FileMaker’s independence is a historical accident — I don’...

It was reported yesterday that Apple is disbanding the division of the company responsible for its wireless networking products: the hard drive-equipped Time Capsule and both AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express routers. The report was given additional credence by recent discounts and the fact that the products haven’t been updated in more than three years.

On one level, the decision seems like a no-brainer for Apple. The company is in the premium product basis. Back in the days when Wi-Fi was a new thing, it made sense for Apple to boost adoption rates by offering...
