Firm that won $450M iBooks pricing case against...

Despite its apology and cheaper battery replacement pricing, Apple is still facing scrutiny for how it slows down older iPhones in conjunction with battery wear. Joining the growing number of cases against Apple, consumer-rights law firm Hagens Berman has filed a class action suit against Apple for “secretly” installing a “feature to intentionally slow down” the iPhone.

If that law firm sounds familiar, it’s because Hagens Berman was the firm behind the infamous $450 million iBooks price fixing case against Apple…

Netgear's Orbi Outdoor Satellite extends your...

Netgear has a new (and pricey) addition for your Orbi Home WiFi System. The company recently announced the Orbi Outdoor Satellite. As its name suggests the basic idea is to extend your Wi-Fi network beyond the house and into the yard. That way you’ll never again drop your connection while taking out the garbage. The weatherized device is available now with an MSRP of $330.

Netgear says a single Outdoor Satellite adds an additional 2,500 square feet to an Orbi network. Designed for both home and commercial deployment (the latter when paired with Netgear’s Orbi Pro for Small Businesses), the RBK50Y can separate guest and employee traffic. It also offers a dedicated admin network.

Apple Product Delays Have More Than Doubled Under...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Wall Street Journal (Warning: source may be paywalled; alternative source): Of the three major new products since Mr. Cook became chief executive in 2011, both AirPods earbuds in 2016 and last year's HomePod speaker missed Apple's publicly projected shipping dates. The Apple Watch, promised for early 2015, arrived late that April with lengthy wait times for delivery. Apple also was delayed in supplying the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, two critical accessories for its iPad Pro. The delays have contributed to much longer waits between Apple announcing a product and shipping it: an average of 23 days for new and updated products over the past six years, compared with the 11-day average over the six years prior, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of Apple public statements. Longer lead times between announcement and product release have the potential to hurt Apple on multiple fronts. Delays give rivals time to react, something...

The iPhone 8 tops the 2017 MMNPL survey

The 2017 Memorable New Product Launch (MMNPL) survey, conducted by Schneider Associates and Sentient Decision Science, ranked the top 10 product launches consumers recognize as most memorable. Topping the list is the iPhone 8. Yep, the 8, not the 10.

The highest ranked products of the 2017 MMNPL survey are the iPhone 8 (#1), Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (#2), Nintendo Switch (#3), Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino (#4), Google Home (#5) Dominos Bread Twists (#6), Google Pixel (#7), Taco Bell Double Stacked Tacos (#8) Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa (#9) and Microsoft Surface Laptop (#10).

This year’s results also indicate:

SecureBoot and the iMac Pro

One of the areas that Apple has made big improvements with the release of the 2017 iMac Pro is the introduction of SecureBoot. SecureBoot is a process where the firmware validates the bootloader prior to loading. It is at the start of the chain of trust that ensures that code that gets run (drivers, kernel, applications) is known and validated. It all starts with the initial boot and with the release of the iMac Pro, Apple introduced SecureBoot to ensure that the initial bootloader is trusted.

Timothy Perfitt takes a deep dive into Apple’s SecureBoot and the new iMac Pro.

It was the acquisition of legendary music producer Jimmy Iovine as part of the Apple team, and his high-profile connections and visibility has helped Apple grow its music service into a major player.

But it appears Iovine’s time at Apple is coming to an end. A report by Billboard says the recording giant will leave Apple in August, which just so happens to be when the shares he received as part of the Beats sale fully vest. Iovine joined the company along with Dr. Dre and Trent Reznor, both of whom hold still hold senior positions at the company.

Jimmy Iovine To Leave Apple Music in August: Report

An anonymous reader shares a report: Look for Jimmy Iovine to leave Apple Music in August. The former Interscope CEO joined Apple in 2014 after selling Beats, the the music service and electronics business that he and Dr. Dre co-founded, to the tech giant for $3 billion. It is believed his departure is timed to his Apple shares fully vesting, sources tell Billboard. Iovine's ties to Apple go back to 2003 when he first met Apple founder Steve Jobs and exec Eddy Cue, and was a key proponent of Apple's iTunes and iPod. Apple Music, Apple's subscription streaming service, has expanded to more than 30 million paying subscribers since its June 2015 launch. That success is, in part, due to Iovine's focus on content, including developing original programming.

Upcoming $50 Neutrogena SkinScanner gets the skinny...

The silly season of CES is upon us, with all sorts of interesting and sometimes questionable products being announced. Today's example? The Neutrogena SkinScanner, which is going to be demoed at CES next week and should be available in the summer of 2018 for $50. 

For those who are obsessive over "pores, fine lines, wrinkles and moisture levels" in their skin, the SkinSensor uses "12 high-powered LED lights, a 30x magnification lens and highly accurate sensors to measure above and below the skin's surface." Once it's done looking at your skin, the companion Skin360™ app will produce a Skin360 score that tells you how you're doing on the moisture, pores and lines fronts in the battle for a perfect complexion. 

You then have the opportunity to share the score ("Wow, Muffy! I have an 85 score today!!!) or tap an "Improve" button that will tell you what Neutrogena products you can purchase and...

The T2 chip makes the iMac Pro the start of a Mac...

Jason Snell, Macworld:

The T2 processor isn’t doing the heavy lifting in the iMac Pro—that’s the Intel Xeon processor with between 8 and 14 processor cores. The T2 is the brain behind that brain, running the subsystems of the iMac Pro from a single piece of Apple-built silicon. The result is a simplified internal design that doesn’t require multiple components from multiple manufacturers.

Jason does a nice job here, digging into what makes an iMac Pro different than its ancestors. Pay special attention to the section “Boot twice for safety”. Very interesting.

Wall Street Journal talking Apple product delays

Tripp Mickle, Wall Street Journal:

Of the three major new products since Mr. Cook became chief executive in 2011, both AirPods earbuds in 2016 and last year’s HomePod speaker missed Apple’s publicly projected shipping dates. The Apple Watch, promised for early 2015, arrived late that April with lengthy wait times for delivery. Apple also was delayed in supplying the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, two critical accessories for its iPad Pro.

The delays have contributed to much longer waits between Apple announcing a product and shipping it: an average of 23 days for new and updated products over the past six years, compared with the 11-day average over the six years prior, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of Apple public statements.

Apple has shown enormous, unparalleled growth during Tim Cook’s reign as CEO. The demands on the supply chain and the complexity of production have increased dramatically during that same period. And while there have been...

As we've been learning all week, Apple explains that the bugs are related to a CPU feature called speculative execution, which seeks to boost speeds by operating on multiple tasks at the same time: “To increase performance, the CPU predicts which path of a branch is most likely to be taken, and will speculatively continue execution down that path even before the branch is completed. If the prediction was wrong, this speculative execution is rolled back in a way...

Apple: those $25,000 daily sanctions are a bit harsh

Apple asked a California federal court on Wednesday to nix a $25,000-per-day fine, arguing that the sanctions imposed by a magistrate judge last month for delays in producing documents in the antitrust litigation against Qualcomm were unduly harsh.

The tech giant has been ordered to pay $25,000 each day it fails to produce evidence related to an FTC case against Qualcomm, per the orders of U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathanael Cousins. The fine started Dec. 16.

The suit accuses Qualcomm of forcing Apple to use its chips in exchange for lower licensing fees, which unfairly excludes competitors. The...

Apple has confirmed that its devices are affected by the much-discussed "Spectre" and "Meltdown" processor exploits, whose revelation has depressed Intel stock for two days and given a boost to AMD.

"All Mac systems and iOS devices are affected, but there are no known exploits impacting customers at this time," the company said in a forum post. "Since exploiting many of these issues requires a malicious app to be loaded on your Mac or iOS device, we recommend downloading software only from trusted sources such as the App Store."

The company plans mitigations "in the coming days" for Safari, to defend against Spectre, and says it's already released mitigations in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2 to help defend against Meltdown. However, the Apple Watch isn't affected...

Apple files for patent for ‘social reminders’ on its...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 2018007538) for “social reminders” on iOS, watchOS and, perhaps, macOS devices. In the patent filing, Apple nots that electronic devices can display reminder alerts that remind users to take certain actions at certain times. 

For example, a meeting reminder reminds a user to attend a scheduled meeting. A conventional reminder is created by specifying a date and/or time with a reminder message. The reminder may then be displayed at the specified date and/or time. However, Apple says that conventional reminders aren’t as helpful when it’s impractical for the user to specify a date and/or time ahead of time. 

According to the patent filing, social reminders can be set to trigger based on social interactions of users. For example, a user may request to be reminded to discuss a certain discussion topic with a particular phonebook contact, when the user next encounters the contact.

In some embodiments, a method for managing social...

Apple product delays have more than doubled under...

Delays between Apple announcing a product and shipping it to customers have more than doubled under Tim Cook’s watch, according to a WSJ analysis.

Of the 70-plus new and updated products launched during Mr. Cook’s tenure, five had a delay between announcement and shipping of three months or more, and nine had delays of between one and three months. Roughly the same number of products were launched during Mr. Jobs’ reign, but only one product was delayed by more than three months.

The averages bear out the paper’s claim, though also illustrate the rather small difference for a typical product launch …

Coping with data loss and recovery

By Jeff Graber

It always seems that disaster will strike at the most inopportune time. Ask anyone who has lost an important paper before submission, and they will tell you a tale of loss and woe. The truth is, that no matter how good our technology gets, there’s always room for something to go wrong. This is because technology is inherently complicated, and data acquisition, storage, and retrieval isn’t perfect.

If you are coping with data loss, then don’t lose hope. There are options out there that you can take advantage of. Below is a brief guide that will help you through the steps you need to take to understand the problem, create a plan, and find a solution to retrieving your data.

 The Toll

 One reason why losing your data is so terrible is that it’s an emotionally draining realization. Many people lose cherished photographs, papers, and other wonderful reminders of their past.  In addition, stored music, movies,...

Concerns about the performance hit of mitigating the security flaw in Intel, AMD and ARM processors appear to have been dramatically overblown.

The initial report in The Register suggested ‘a ballpark figure of 5-30% slow-down,’ but Intel now says that the performance impact ‘should not be significant,’ with Apple and others agreeing that this is the case …

How to restore a disk image to a disk in macOS High...

You can use the Disk Utility in macOS High Sierra to restore a disk image to a disk. A disk image (.dmg file) is a file that looks and acts like a mountable device or volume. 

However, proceed with caution because your first have to erase the disk. If the disk image has multiple partitions, you must restore each partition individually.

To restore a disk image with a single volume to a disk:

  • In the sidebar, select the volume that you want to restore, then click the Restore button or choose Edit > Restore. This is the volume that is erased and becomes the exact copy.
  • Click the Restore pop-up menu, then choose the volume you want to copy. If you’re restoring from a disk image, click the Image button, then navigate to that disk image.
  • Click Restore.

To restore a disk image with multiple volumes to a disk, you must partition the destination disk, then restore each volume individually.

  • Open the disk image by double-...

Where the Meltdown and Spectre bugs are now affecting billions of processors around the world, Intel has not stated that forthcoming firmware updates and software patches will render Intel-based computer systems “immune” to these issues.

The company has stated that updates have been issued for the majority of Intel processor products introduced within the past five years, and by the end of next week, more than 90 percent of processor products from the last five years will be patched.

For Mac users, Apple has already addressed some of the vulnerabilities in the macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update, and will cover any further vulnerabilities in macOS High Sierra 10.13.3.

Jimmy Iovine to leave Apple Music in August

The former Interscope CEO joined Apple in 2014 after selling Beats, the the music service and electronics business that he and Dr. Dre co-founded, to the tech giant for $3 billion. It is believed his departure is timed to his Apple shares fully vesting, sources tell Billboard. Apple declined to comment.

Apple bought Beats, and Iovine, for his connections in the industry and that has helped Apple get a strong foothold with artists. I’m not really sure what Iovine’s departure would mean for Apple Music because his daily role has diminished over time.

Apple on ‘speculative execution vulnerabilities in...

Security researchers have recently uncovered security issues known by two names, Meltdown and Spectre. These issues apply to all modern processors and affect nearly all computing devices and operating systems. All Mac systems and iOS devices are affected, but there are no known exploits impacting customers at this time. Since exploiting many of these issues requires a malicious app to be loaded on your Mac or iOS device, we recommend downloading software only from trusted sources such as the App Store. Apple has already released mitigations in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2 to help defend against Meltdown. Apple Watch is not affected by Meltdown. In the coming days we plan to release mitigations in Safari to help defend against Spectre. We continue to develop and test further mitigations for these issues and will release them in upcoming updates of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.

Everything you need to know is on Apple’s web site.

iMac Pro Teardown Highlights Modular RAM, CPU and...

Popular repair site iFixit has acquired an iMac Pro and opened it up to see what's inside. They tore down the base iMac Pro with an 8-core processor, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. Mac Rumors reports the findings: iFixit found that the RAM, CPU, and SSDs in the iMac Pro are modular and can potentially be replaced following purchase, but most of the key components "require a full disassembly to replace." Standard 27-inch iMacs have a small hatch in the back that allows easy access to the RAM for post-purchase upgrades, but that's missing in the iMac Pro. Apple has said that iMac Pro owners will need to get RAM replaced at an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider. iFixit says that compared to the 5K 27-inch iMac, replacing the RAM in the iMac Pro is indeed "a major undertaking."

Apple is using standard 288-pin DDR4 ECC RAM sticks with standard chips, which iFixit was able to upgrade using its own $2,000 RAM upgrade kit. A CPU upgrade is "theoretically possible," but...

Rumor: Apple Music’s Jimmy Iovine is leaving Apple

Billboard reports that Apple Music exec Jimmy Iovine will depart the tech giant in August, around the time his company shares have fully vested. He joined Apple in 2014.

Iovine is a record producer best known as the co-founder of Interscope Records and chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. In 2006, Iovine teamed with Dr. Dre to found Beats Electronics (formerly known as Beats by Dr. Dre), a company which produces audio products and operated a now defunct music streaming service. The company was purchased by Apple for $3 billion in May 2014. Since the start of his career, Iovine has been involved in the production of more than 250 albums.

Intel says it’s developed and is rapidly issuing updates for all types of Intel-based computer systems — including personal computers and servers — that render those systems immune from both exploits (referred to as “Spectre” and “Meltdown”) reported by Google Project Zero. 

Intel says it’s already issued updates for the majority of processor products introduced within the past five years. By the end of next week, the company expects to have issued updates for more than 90% of processor products introduced within the past five years. In addition, many operating system vendors, public cloud service providers, device manufacturers and others have indicated that they have already updated their products and services.

Apple has announced that App Store customers around the world made apps and games a bigger part of their holiday season in 2017 than ever before, culminating in $300 million in purchases made on New Year’s Day 2018.
