∞ It’s not just about closing the rings with Apple...

Apple Watch is an incredible device for many reasons, but none are as great as how it helps people track their exercise and movement. The watch does this by using rings—closing the rings means you had a great day of standing, exercising, and movement. But what if you don’t close the rings? […]

One of the best ways to learn about new audio equipment — other than reading our reviews — to attend local meetups and trade shows. At these events you can of often find expensive and rare gear to test, but here's a pro tip: if you attend a headphone meetup and only play with the gear, you're doing it wrong. The best part of headphone meetups is the people you meet. At CanJam 2017, we had the chance to talk with Dan Wiggins, creator of Periodic Audio's new line of in-ear monitors, to a level of extreme geekery. Dan sent us his entire product lineup to test; though not without flaws, we think they sound great.{/exp:char_limit}

Feature Request: Meal logging from Apple’s Health app

Apple’s Health app in iOS 10 prominently displays Nutrition as one of the four main categories on the Health Data dashboard, but adding detailed information currently requires a third-party meal logging app with HealthKit support. Apple recommends a variety of solutions that work well including Lifesum and MyFitnessPal, but ultimately a native meal logging feature and first party food database would make the Health app much more useful.

Google Assistant may appear on iOS soon

This is the era of AIs, with Siri from Apple, Cortana from Microsoft, Alexa from Amazon, and Google Assistant from Google now appearing in devices from smartwatches to PCs. Android Police is reporting that Google Assistant will soon be launching on iOS as a standalone app. How soon? The app may be announced as soon as this week at Google's I/O Conference.

According to the site, Assistant for iOS will be US-only at launch. As noted in the post, adding "Assistant to the world's second-largest mobile OS would like encourage more developers to integrate with the app's functionality."

Assistant launched Google's own Pixel phone last year, and has quickly spread to other devices such as the Google Home "smart speaker", apps like Google Allo, and most Android phones. I personally have found Google Assistant to be one of the better voice-...

Apple has just released iOS 10.3.2 to the public, following around a month and a half of beta testing that began shortly after iOS 10.3 came out. It's available as an over-the-air update or through iTunes for any devices that run iOS 10: the iPhone 5 and newer, the fourth-generation iPad and newer, the iPad Mini 2 and newer, both iPad Pros, and the sixth-generation iPod Touch.

Like the intervening iOS 10.3.1 update, the release notes for 10.3.2 only say that it "includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad," which suggests that the release is primarily focused on security updates.

New 10.5-inch iPad may debut alongside Siri Speaker...

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is typically a parade of software announcements, not hardware. While we’re expecting iOS 11 and the next version of macOS to take center stage, rumor has it Apple plans to switch it up and announce two new devices: the Siri Speaker and a refreshed iPad Pro.

Apple hasn’t said anything about either product, but rumors and speculation from well-placed sources have all but confirmed the Siri Speaker, Apple’s answer to Amazon’s Echo. And while we’ve been hearing about a redesigned iPad for months now, the 2017 iPad released earlier this spring didn’t exactly push the iPad lineup forward (but that $329 price tag is pretty sweet).

Although Apple seems to be somewhat slower than other PC manufacturers in terms of moving new Intel processors to its laptop and desktop lines, it's always news when we hear word of a new Intel processor line. A leaked presentation photo shows a new high-end Core i9 processor using Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X architectures that may be announced by Intel in June.

The alleged Intel presentation showing Core i9 processor details

The slide appeared on the Anandtech forums, posted by user "Sweepr". The slide shows four Core i9 chips -- two in the i9-7900 range and two in the i9-7800 range -- along with a pair of Core i7 chips. Although the speed of the top end i9-7920X chip was not revealed in the slide, the processor is expected to have 12 cores, 24 threads, and 16.5MB of L3 cache.

Apple launches tvOS 10.2.1

Apple has upgraded tvOS, the operating system for the Apple TV, to version 10.2.1. It offers bug fixes and performance tweaks.

The operating system was recently revved to version 10.2, which provided an accelerated scrolling feature to the Siri remote so you can scroll through lists of content faster.

watchOS ticks to version 3.2.2

Apple has revved watchOS to 3.2.2. The upgrade focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements to the Apple Watch's operating system. 

The previous release (watchOS 3.2) added Theater Mode and SiriKit. The former lets Apple Watch owners disable the "rise to wake" function on the watch, but still notify them with haptic feedback of notifications without illuminating the watch display. 

SiriKit enables apps to work with Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant,” so users can get things done with content and services using just their voice. In addition to extending Siri’s support for messaging, photo search and phone calls to more apps, SiriKit also adds support for new services, including ride booking and personal payments.

watchOS 3.2.2 must be performed through the Apple Watch app on a connected iPhone, and the watch must be on the charger, and have over 50 percent battery remaining.

AAC, which Apple likes, is now the preferred...

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, , a division of the state-funded German research institution that bankrolled the MP3's development in the late '80s, has officially halted its licensing program for "certain MP3 related patents and software," effectively making the MP3 music format free for developer use. Apparently, the last of the patents expired, which is the reason that it is no longer licensing the format.

The development of MP3 started in the late 80s at Fraunhofer IIS, based on previous development results at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Although there are more efficient audio codecs with advanced features available today, the format is still very popular among consumers. 

However, most state-of-the-art media services such as streaming or TV and radio broadcasting use modern ISO-MPEG codecs such as the AAC family or in the future MPEG-H, notes the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits. Those can deliver more features and a higher...

Voip-Pal.com has announced its intent to increase the damage claims in its lawsuits against Apple, Verizon and AT&T. Over the past few months the company says it’s been reevaluating the initial damage calculation claims made in its February 2016 lawsuits and has “determined its initial claim for damages was calculated using a significantly lower royalty monetization model than has been used in actual court awards of recent patent infringement cases.”

Voip-Pal claims that “Apple, Verizon and AT&T were regrettably unwilling to engage in discussion of licensing the company’s intellectual property and technology.” It’s a publicly traded corporation that acquired Digifonica International Limited in 2013 in order to fund, co-develop and complete Digifonica's suite of patents.

In the aftermath of ransomware spread over the weekend, Zeynep Tufekci, an associate professor at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, writes an opinion piece for The New York Times: At a minimum, Microsoft clearly should have provided the critical update in March to all its users, not just those paying extra. Indeed, "pay extra money to us or we will withhold critical security updates" can be seen as its own form of ransomware. In its defense, Microsoft probably could point out that its operating systems have come a long way in security since Windows XP, and it has spent a lot of money updating old software, even above industry norms. However, industry norms are lousy to horrible, and it is reasonable to expect a company with a dominant market position, that made so much money selling software that runs critical infrastructure, to do more. Microsoft supported Windows XP for over a decade before finally putting it to sleep. In the wake...

Right now, The Journal says Nintendo plans to introduce the game after a mobile version of Animal Crossing debuts in the “latter half of 2017.” The Zelda title would roll out after that, but it’s not clear if that means it will appear in time for the holidays or in 2018.

Did Disney ruin Pixar?

Christopher Orr, The Atlantic:

A well-regarded hollywood insider recently suggested that sequels can represent “a sort of creative bankruptcy.” He was discussing Pixar, the legendary animation studio, and its avowed distaste for cheap spin-offs. More pointedly, he argued that if Pixar were only to make sequels, it would “wither and die.” Now, all kinds of industry experts say all kinds of things. But it is surely relevant that these observations were made by Ed Catmull, the president of Pixar, in his best-selling 2014 business-leadership book.

Yet here comes Cars 3, rolling into a theater near you this month. You may recall that the original Cars, released back in 2006, was widely judged to be the studio’s worst film to date. Cars 2, which followed five years later, was panned as even worse. And if Cars 3 isn’t disheartening enough, two of the three Pixar films in line after it are also sequels: The Incredibles 2 and (say it isn’t so!) Toy Story 4.

Nintendo is reportedly planning to expand its mobile gaming efforts following the success of 'Super Mario Run' and 'Fire Emblem: Heroes' on iOS, with the Kyoto firm said to be bringing 'The Legend of Zelda' to the platform in the future, along with rumors of another 'Pokemon' title for smartphones also apparently on the way.

10 Years of iPhone — A Developer’s Perspective

Long time iOS developer Adrian Kosmaczewski lays out the evolution of the iPhone and the App Store from the wild west earliest days through the ten years since.

This is a fantastic read, full of interesting details. No development background required. And smack dab in the middle of it is a book I wrote with Jeff LaMarche, complete with the very first of many fruit cross-sections to adorn Apress’ line of iOS/Mac development books.

I still remember reacting to the first cover shot they sent our way:

“Wait, you want to put a piece of fruit on the cover? Why?”

“It’s Apple related. So fruit. Get it?”

Many, many arguments later, that fruit cover stuck and turned out to be iconic in its own small way. The book sold, helped a lot of people get started, so ultimately it did its job. And Jeff and I had a helluva ride.

Apple reveals its plans for a flagship retail store...

It was back in January that we first heard that Apple was planning a new flagship retail store in Milan, Italy, with an outdoor amphitheater – and the company has now confirmed those plans.

It will be a square full of ideas. We are incredibly happy to be in the center of Milan, a town that for centuries combines creativity and innovation. In the coming months we will work to give you a new Liberty Square: an open space for everyone to take a break, meet with friends, discover new interests.

The store will sit beneath the amphitheater, and you’ll enter it using a...

Lyft riders may get early taste of self-driving tech...

Cars driving for ride-hailing service Lyft may soon sport lidar sensors alongside the pink logo and Amp dash display.

The company is teaming up with Alphabet's Waymo subsidiary, the autonomous vehicle business spun out of Google. 

Details on the deal, reported by the New York Times and later confirmed by the two companies, are vague.

Under the deal, the companies will work together on pilot projects and product development efforts to make autonomous vehicles mainstream, the newspaper said, citing two anonymous sources.

But Lyft has made no secret of its interest in self-driving vehicle technology.

Last March General Motors invested $500 million in the company and then in May said they would work together to test self-driving electric Chevrolet Bolts on the roads.

Nintendo will be adding a Legend of Zelda game to its growing list of iOS titles, The Wall Street Journal reports. Sources said the game is set to be released after the iOS Animal Crossing title debuts later this year, but warned that Nintendo could always change the timing and order of its releases. The Animal Crossing game has already been delayed once. No information on pricing was mentioned, and the company has dabbled in different pricing models,…

iPad mystery

Jean-Louis Gassée digs into the mystery of the bell shaped iPad sales curve. From rollout in April of 2010 through the first quarter of 2014 the curve was rising. Since then, the curve has been steadily falling, though it is still too early to truly see the impact of Apple’s new, low-price iPad strategy.

A great read, with some thoughtful explanations (see the iPad’s “lean back” consumers and “elongated upgrade cycle”).

Apple will open the Piazza del Liberty Apple Retail store in Milan “soon,” according to AppleInsider. First announced in January, it’s described as “one of the most innovative and technological Apple Stores in the world.”

Apple’s plans depict an outdoor amphitheater where it plans to host culturally focused events throughout the year. In fact, the Cupertino, California-based company has purportedly already agreed to host eight public events per year with potential for at least an additional 4 events per year.

Apple’s amphitheater is said to be “the heart of the square.” The entrance of the store will be marked by a glass screen made from a waterfall. The interior is also said to be fully modernized and redesigned.

With the opening of the store, Apple will have 498 retail stores in 22 countries and an online store...

Microsoft: Lessons from last week’s cyberattack

Microsoft Blog, on the WannaCrypt ransomeware attack:

The WannaCrypt exploits used in the attack were drawn from the exploits stolen from the National Security Agency, or NSA, in the United States. That theft was publicly reported earlier this year. A month prior, on March 14, Microsoft had released a security update to patch this vulnerability and protect our customers. While this protected newer Windows systems and computers that had enabled Windows Update to apply this latest update, many computers remained unpatched globally. As a result, hospitals, businesses, governments, and computers at homes were affected.

And:

This attack demonstrates the degree to which cybersecurity has become a shared responsibility between tech companies and customers. The fact that so many computers remained vulnerable two months after the release of a patch illustrates this aspect. As cybercriminals become more sophisticated, there is simply no way for customers to protect...

Rumor: Apple to announce Siri-connected speaker...

It’s a rumor, but there might be some truth to it.

KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that there is a more than 50% chance of Apple releasing a Siri Speaker, an all-new category for the company, at the Worldwide Developers Conference starting June 5th. In addition, he says that there is more than 70% chance of an all-new design 10.5-inch iPad Pro to be announced at the keynote.

Along with this, Apple is expected to make inevitable operating system announcements in the form of iOS 11, macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4. KGI has not offered insight into what functionality or changes the new software will bring but it does include some notes about the predicted hardware unveilings.

KGI described the rumored 10.5-inch as an all-new design. The company stated that Apple will announce the new tablet at WWDC is based on the fact it expects mass production of the 10.5-inch iPad to start in late Q2, which is close enough to the conference date. Leaks from accessory...

The WannaCry ransomware attack may have been exploiting a vulnerability in Windows, but the lesson it provides – the importance of keeping both computers and mobile devices updated – is one applicable to all of us, Apple users included.

WannaCry itself targeted a vulnerability that had existed in Windows all the way through from XP to the latest Windows 10. Microsoft issued a patch to fix the issue for Windows Vista onwards back in March, but many organizations failed to update.

The scale of the attack – which caused widespread disruption around the world – should be a wake-up call to consumers, businesses and governments alike …

Apple invests $200 million in Corning’s Harrodsburg...

The glass on your Apple devices could be on the verge of becoming that much stronger.

Apple announced that the company has put $200 million of its $1 billion U.S. manufacturing fund into Corning’s Harrodsburg, Kentucky glass-making plant.

Corning has manufactured the glass that Apple has used in iPhones and iPads since day one.

Corning’s Gorilla Glass, introduced in 2007, played a huge role in the development of Apple’s devices. Corning will be able to leverage the $200 million investment, which will go toward equipment, glass processing, and research and development, to make new versions of its extra-strength glass. Apple at one point was testing sapphire glass from a different manufacturer, but that plan flamed out after the sapphire was found to be too weak for use in iPhones. The company went back to Corning, and Gorilla Glass has remained a staple.

The Apple-Corning business relationship has reportedly created close to 1,000 jobs in the U.S. It’s...

By Chris Gannon

Coremelt’s $99 TrackX is a powerful third party plug in for use with Final Cut Pro X.  I’ve been using TrackX now for a few weeks and have come to truly appreciate the possibilities that TrackX offers.  

It took some time for me to figure out how exactly this program worked. Track X does provide some very helpful tutorials that I would highly recommend, especially for a FCPX novice like myself. In the end however I was able to figure out how to use the program.  

One suggestion would be to shoot video with TrackX in mind. I had a lot of trouble trying to use video that I already had on my Mac. If the lighting wasn’t just right or if there was a little interference then TrackX couldn’t keep up with the object. Even though it takes two to three times as long as the video to initially track, I didn’t really find that to be too long or a problem.  There were times when I was trying...

Apple files for patent for improved app store...

Apple wants to improve searches in its various app stores, as evidenced by a new patent filing (number 20170132294) for, well, “app store searching.” The improved search method would distribute data to create an association between a first application and a first set of other applications in an app store.

The association would be used to provide search results in response to a search query that specifies the first app by name so that the search results include the first application and the first set of other app. The distribution data would indicate the number of downloads for applications in the app store that resulted from each search query in a set of search queries.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, in recent years, downloading of apps from an on-line app store has become increasingly popular. The number of apps has increased significantly, and therefore users have a large number of apps available to them. However, this large number can make finding an app...

There is a solid decade of evidence that, for Apple, being behind is a competitive advantage.
