Questionable leaks raise hopes that Apple will...

Reversible male "Type-A" USB plugs are not new, but they also aren't compliant with the cable's official specifications, which means that newly leaked Lightning cables showing reversible USB connectors probably were not made by Apple.

Google’s attempt to solve their jarring...

There are a number of reasons developers develop for iOS first, or avoid Android completely. Perhaps the top two reasons are OS fragmentation and device fragmentation, both of which drive up the development costs (more use cases to build for, more use cases to test for).

This post from GigaOM makes the case that Google has solved these problems, at least in part. The key is Google’s Play Services.

Play Services, introduced in 2012, is effectively a background download of core services required to run apps on Android. Putting the OS install numbers to one side for a moment, this is the stat that matters to developers – over 93 percent of all Android users are running the latest version of Google Play Services.

More importantly, Google has been slowly moving core Android features, APIs and app elements out of the OS and into Google Play Services — meaning developers can ensure their apps run smoothly (with all the new features they plan to implement) across all...

Rumor: Apple's 'iPhone 6' may include...

The latest component claimed to be from Apple's next-generation iPhone is a Qualcomm MDM9625 modem, which would boost cellular download speeds to 150 megabits per second, which would be 50 percent faster than the modem found in the iPhone 5s.

Today’s sketchy rumor: iPhone 6 to offer 150Mbps but...

Carriers have started rolling out faster LTE-Advanced networks, also known as LTE-A and LTE+. If today’s rumor is correct, the iPhone 6 will be able to take advantage of these faster networks, but will top out at 150Mbps rather than the maximum 300Mbps supported by LTE-A.

GforGames is citing a Geekbar post, suggests that the LTE modem in the iPhone 6 will be the Qualcomm MDM9625, which supports LTE-A but only up to 150Mbps.

To put the speeds into perspective, the LTE modem used in the iPhone 5s and 5c tops out at 100Mbps, so we’d see a 50 percent increase in speed rather than a 200 percent one.

It should be noted that the source of the rumor is the same one which yesterday got its ...

New videos and photo of purported reversible Apple...

We raised the possibility yesterday of the iPhone 6 including a redesigned USB to Lightning cable that allows the USB end of the cord to be inserted into a USB port in either direction. In other words, like the Lightning connector, the next Apple USB cable could be reversible. Leaks of the purported cables have been flowing quickly out of Asia-based areas surrounding the Apple supply chain, and now Sonny Dickson has shared a video of the cable in action. While the video does not show the iPhone actually syncing with the new USB cord, the video does show the cable being inserted in both directions into a standard USB port. This lines up with a recent...

Of course, it’s likely he also donated to the ALSA, given that he released the video later than the 24 hours participants are usually afforded. But hey,...

To wit: "What was your first Linux distro?" is the title of a recent "Voice of the Masses" poll, and throughout the blogosphere the nostalgic reminiscences have been pouring forth ever since. Some 100 bloggers used poll's comments section to proclaim their first Linuxy loves for all the world to hear. Others got teary-eyed recounting their first tender distro moments down at the Punchy Penguin Cafe.

Maps.Me is temporarily free, so grab it while you can

TUAW:

Why would anyone need another maps app when they already have Apple and Google Maps? The main reason is that both Apple and Google map apps need an internet connection. Yes, some map data can be cached, but all of your points of interest need the internet in order to appear.

Not so with Maps.Me. Once you load the app, you can download maps for anywhere (including hundreds of points of interest for any corner of the world) while you have an internet connection. When you get to your destination, everything is on your iOS device so you won’t be burning up those precious megabytes.

I can’t find my butt with a map and a flashlight so I always appreciate any app that can help. And for us Canadians who travel and get dinged with ridiculous roaming charges, anything that helps us use our iPhones offline while traveling while is welcome.

Life after death: Resuscitating a drowned iPhone 5

As I positioned the phone vertically, the boat rocked a bit from a small wave, and—you guessed it—the phone slipped out of my hands.

I watched my iPhone fall, land on the back of the boat, then sickeningly slide off the boat and splash into the water.

Not everyone is so lucky but the story of the near-death and complete resurrection of this iPhone is interesting.

Rockn Stompn for Musicians: Power Strip, Conditioner...

I went to the California World Guitar Show this past weekend (warning, that site blares music with no volume controls). In addition to more amazing guitars from the 1950s and 1960s than you can shake a stick at-check out this gorgeous 1963 Gibson SG or an amazing 1964 Firebird V- I saw a very clever device called Rockn Stompn. This is a power strip that conditions your power, something that's useful for live performances and studio recording alike. But that's not the clever bit. Rockn Stompn is also a power sequencer. The six plugs are arranged in three banks that will turn on in sequence. So you can have your pedal board plugged into the first bank so that it turns on first. Then a variable number of seconds later, the next bank turns on, and that's where you have you ramp plugged in. That means no popping. It's foot activated, so you can turn on everything (for multiple musicians) with just one stomp, and the delay for each bank is variable. It's very nifty. It's priced at $299,...

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple's long standing partnership with TBWA has produced several award winning advertising campaigns. We'll see if Apple can keep that up now that it's bringing more of its advertising efforts in house.

The design of the original Apple mouse

Jim Yurchenco was just beginning his incredible design career when he was asked to design a mouse for a revolutionary new computer Apple was working on, the Lisa.

Yurchenco started looking at other input devices to see how it could all be done more elegantly. He found his answer in an Atari arcade machine. Its trackball seemed perfect for the job.

The Atari machine differed from the Xerox mouse in a few key ways. For one, its trackball wasn’t forced up or down. Instead, it just floated. Yurchenco tried doing the same and found the mouse functioned just fine if you let gravity do the work. Moreover, it resulted in less friction and fewer parts. That was one key insight. The Atari machine also used optics to track the trackball’s movement, relying on interrupted beams of light instead of mechanical switches. By borrowing this concept, Yurchenco further streamlined the internal components. That was insight number two.

The third insight came in how you use the...

Rumor: Apple unlikely to sell sapphire display...

If you’re hankering for an iPhone 6 with a nigh-indestructible sapphire display, this may not be your year.

Per AppleInsider, J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall has issued a note to investors, in which he reacted to a report from last week suggesting that sapphire display costs remain high. The source of that rumor was The Wall Street Journal, which made highly questionable claims that suggested Apple remains undecided about whether to use sapphire displays on its next iPhone, which is expected to be unveiled on Sept. 9.

Hall noted that Apple’s sapphire partner, GT Advanced Technologies, has acquired a company known as Twin Creeks, which uses a...

Apple's "Misunderstood" iPhone ad, aired during the holidays last year, has been awarded a 2014 Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Commercial. The spot was produced with the help of TBWA/Media Arts Lab and Park Pictures, and features a boy who appears to be ignoring friends and family in favor of his iPhone, but is really shooting and editing a special video.

Review: Review: Ten One Design Magnus Air

Unlike the original Magnus, which was almost entirely made from iPad-matching metal, Magnus Air looks and feels substantially plastic—a reason that the price has dropped somewhat from the prior model. Beyond the plastic, Magnus Air also includes rubber, metal, magnets in the design. Although the list of materials could make for an awkward stand, Ten One Design has molded the components together pretty well.   Key to the design is a fairly…

Our green review unit isn’t currently offered as a color, but appears…

Rumors give iPhone 6 just 1GB of RAM, 1,810mAh...

(Updated with clarity on RAM issue, NFC chip) Schematics leaked by Chinese repair firm GeekBar may suggest that the iPhone 6 will ship with only 1GB of RAM, the same amount used in the iPhone 5 and 5s. If accurate, that figure would leave the device behind current high-end Android and Windows Phone devices, which typically have 2GB. Although Apple is known to optimize its hardware and software, this could mean that the iPhone 6 will have to halt background tasks and refresh browser tabs as much or more than the 5s, since it will have a higher-resolution 4.7-inch display. The schematics may...

Analyst: No Sapphire for iPhone 6 Display

If you're hoping your next iPhone will include a sapphire glass display, you may be waiting another year. JP Morgan analyst Rod Hall says the cost of synthetic sapphire glass is still too high, and that Apple won't be able to get the price down to a reasonable level in time for this year's iPhone 6 launch.

The Mac Observer Spin: GTAT is already running at least 2,600 sapphire glass furnaces for Apple, and may well have a nice stockpile, too. That's a pretty compelling setup for sapphire displays on the iPhone this year instead of next year.

Thrilling selfies taken from great heights

Some great selfies, some more dangerous than others, but thrilling nonetheless.

Maybe it’s because I just came across the 10,000th social media selfie I’ve seen this month that’s making me snap. It was another of those inane pics taken in the safe confines of a bar that looks like every other, so I burned the morning looking for more dangerously-shot selfies. In particular the famous ones I’d seen those Russian maniacs shooting high up in the Dubai sky.

Xiaomi's Next OS Looks Strikingly Similar To iOS

stephendavion writes Looks like Chinese device maker, Xiaomi, is taking its "Apple of the East" tag too literally. First, their CEO brazenly copies Steve Jobs' signature look, sitting cross-legged on the floor. And now, Xiaomi's latest version of Android shamelessly rips off iOS 7. MIUI 6, which is Xiaomi's upcoming edition of Android for its latest phones and tablets, looks almost exactly like Apple's operating system for iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch. It features the same bright color palette and a flat design. Heck, it even does away with Google's "app drawer" and puts all apps on your home screen. It's like the CEO handed iPhones to the design team and barked: "Here, copy this!"

The spot, created by TBWA\Media Arts Lab and directed by Lance Acord of Park Pictures, shows a teen at Christmas who seems anti-socially glued to his iPhone, though it turns out it’s for heartwarming reasons. It beat out four other nominees for the prize. Two of them were Super Bowl ads by Anomaly for Budweiser—”Hero’s Welcome” and “Puppy Love.” The other two were BBDO’s “Childlike Imagination” for GE and Wieden + Kennedy’s “Possibilities” for Nike.

The commercial took three days to shoot and was filmed in a historic house located on the edge of the River Valley in snowy Edmonton. Beautifully done.

How the Atari arcade system inspired the original...

Wired has an interesting profile out this morning on Jim Yurchenco, a now-retired engineer whose career virtually started with the task of helping create the first mouse for Apple and Steve Jobs:

Yurchenco was just a year or two out of school when he got a call from an old Stanford pal, David Kelley. Kelley had just started a new design firm and asked if Yurchenco might want to join as an engineer. That meant a proper salary—Yurchenco had been working at a medical tech start-up, being paid mostly in stock—so he agreed. The company was called Hovey-Kelley; Ideo was still a few years off at that point. But thanks to co-founder Dean Hovey’s relationship with Jobs, Apple became one of the young company’s first clients.

Nintendo rises after report Pokemon game to debut on...

This is a tricky piece of news.

Nintendo Co. (7974) jumped in Tokyo trading after its new Mario Kart 8 video game surpassed 1 million units in U.S. sales and affiliate The Pokemon Co. said an online trading-card game will be released as an application for Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPad.

The Pokémon game is owned by The Pokémon Company, which is affiliated with Nintendo (Nintendo has certain licensing and marketing rights) but not owned by Nintendo.

“We have been here many times before in regards to Nintendo’s tentative plans to introduce some of its characters for smart devices,” Amir Anvarzadeh, a manager of Japanese equity sales at BGC Partners Inc. in Singapore, said by e-mail. “This latest Pokemon cards plan which is already out on PCs is hardly a change in its direction.”

This is not quite correct.

Why Tesla Is the Best Car Company in the World


As an analyst in a market of experts, I'm known as a generalist, but if I have an area of particular focus, it is how to make customers love you. In the car space, there are two emerging vendors on the world stage: India's Tata, which now owns brands like Jaguar and Land Rover; and Tesla, the dominant provider of electric cars. Both companies are trying to make a dent in the world, and Tata is by far the larger and more capable of the two, but it is Tesla that is having a bigger impact.

Hoping for a curved Apple Thunderbolt Display? Check...

I’ve never been greatly convinced that curved TV screens are anything but a passing novelty. Watching TV is a social experience, so optimizing the viewing angle for just one person seems odd. But a curved monitor makes much more sense to me, enabling more comfortable viewing from a fixed position at your desk – especially as monitors get larger.

LG has just announced that it will formally launch the 34UC97,  “the world’s first curved monitor with an extra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio,” at the IFA in Berlin next month. The 34-inch ultra-wide monitor offers a 3440×1440 resolution, and – appealingly for Mac users – supports Thunderbolt 2 …

Gazelle is also running another promotion in tandem, temporarily raising prices offered for iPhone 5s. Gazelle will now offer up to $350 for an iPhone 5s in perfect condition. Obviously, arranging an iPhone trade-in sooner rather than later will...

Photos showing what are claimed to be components from a 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 have surfaced, although they don't exactly qualify as definitive proof that a super-size iPhone is on the way. The name that goes along with the big-screen model photos is a bit dubious, too: iPhone 6L.

The Mac Observer Spin: At this point, not seeing a 4.7-inch iPhone model this fall will be a big surprise. The rumored 5.5-inch model, however, still feels like a wild card.
