Tip of the Day: Using your Apple Watch without your...

If you’ve got an Apple Watch, you’ve probably become accustomed to using it “fully online” with your paired iPhone within Bluetooth range, or by itself where you’re only tracking workouts and aren’t concerned about too much else. It’s easy for most of us to forget that the Apple Watch actually has its own Wi-Fi radio, and can actually connect directly to just about any Wi-Fi network — provided your iPhone…

Enlarge (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

A seven-month investigation by Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service has found that Apple's Russian arm illegally fixed prices for certain iPhone models, according to a report from the Financial Times. The FAS found that Apple told 16 retailers to "hold the prices" of these iPhones and that Apple would contact the retailers in the event that the company found their prices "inappropriate." Apple may have terminated agreements with retailers unwilling to meet those pricing guidelines.

The full report is posted in Russian here; affected phones include the iPhone 5S and 5C, the 6 and 6 Plus, and...

Rollout proposes a secure JavaScript injection...

iOS troubleshooting and update tool, Rollout.io, has published an open letter to Apple, proposing a secure JavaScript injection approval process, as a way to address Apple’s concerns from late last week regarding apps that use code-swapping frameworks like Rollout.

Here’s part of the proposal: “Just as full releases require a distribution certificate, developers will obtain a “Live Update Service Certificate” from Apple.

Just as Apple signs .ipa files, which are pushed to the App Store and then downloaded to end user devices, we propose Apple begin to sign Javascript code, which is returned to the developer, who can then push it directly to live devices. The Apple SDK would verify the signature authenticity and only execute verified code.

The Financial Times reports that Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service has ruled that Apple had illegally ordered retailers to fix prices of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 models. The Cupertino, California-based company purportedly instructed 16 retailers in Russia to set the prices at a certain amount and if a retailer was found to be selling the iPhone at an “unsuitable” price, Apple would contact them and order them to change the price or risk having the sales agreement terminated.

In a statement (as translated by 9to5Mac) the FAS said:

I’ve tried a handful of Apple Watch chargers in the past, such as Amber’s Watchcase Power Bank, but Ugreen’s offering may turn into my go-to Apple Watch charger from now on. The Ugreen Power Bank with Magnetic Charger not only features the portability that some Apple Watch owners are seeking, but it also features a built-in battery for wireless charging while away from a wall outlet.

And here’s something that you don’t always see when it comes to third-party offerings — a built-in magnetic charging puck, meaning there’s no need to provide your own charger. Not only will such a setup save you money, but it also keeps you from having to finagle with inserting or mounting Apple’s own charger.

Beware! A new RAT may try to scurry onto your Mac

Security researchers at Sixgill say they’ve encountered a post in one of the leading, closed Russian cybercrime message boards. The author of the thread announced a RAT [remote access trojan] dubbed Proton, intended for installation exclusively on Macs.

The author claims to have written the malware in native Objective C, the advantage being that the malware doesn’t require any dependencies. The author also claims the app is fully-undetected by any existing macOS anti-viruses currently in the market.

Proton RAT is apparently capable of running real-time console commands and file manipulation, keylogging, SSH/VNC connectivity, screenshot capture, webcam operation, and also has "the ability to present a custom native window requesting information such as a credit card, driver's license and more, according to the team.

The malware also boasts the capability of iCloud access, even...

Attack of the killer Grillbot

Image via Grillbot

Every once in a while it's fun to post a review of something that is tech-related but doesn't necessarily have anything to do with Apple. That's the case with the Grillbot grill-cleaning robot (from $74.17 - this is an affiliate link benefitting Apple World Today; if you buy one, we'll be reimbursed). I first heard about Grillbot during CES 2017 where it received more attention than most of the "real" tech items, and since I do a lot of grilling, I thought I'd try one out on my surprisingly dirty old gas grill.

I love robots! I was one of the early adopters of the Roomba robotic vacuum, although I've defected to the much superior (IMHO) Neato Botvacs. Soon I'll have a review of a "flying robot", the Hover Camera Passport. So it was only a matter of time before I'd get excited by a robot that would clean up years of carbonized animal flesh and grease on...

The best writing apps for your Mac, iPad and iPhone

Whether you are tentatively planning your first ever blog post or are a best-selling novelist working on your latest blockbuster, there are plenty of apps out there designed for writers. But as writers are sometimes known for their procrastination techniques, and choosing the right app could be the excuse for putting off work on your Great American Novel for several days, we thought it would be helpful to provide a few pointers.

All of the apps featured are available for both Mac and iOS, as I feel it’s important that you can work on the move as well as at a desk. In my comments, though, I’m focusing on the Mac versions as that’s the platform on which most people are likely to do the bulk of their writing.

The obvious starting point, of course, is the app Apple gives you for free: Pages. In fact, some might question why you would ever need anything else, so let’s start with this before considering some of the alternatives …

Up until now if you experienced problems with the software on your Apple Watch and the standard OTA method didn’t work, you were forced to visit an Apple Store to resolve the issue. In fact, I have a first-gen Apple Watch sitting on my shelf right now that I’ve not used for the past six months because I haven’t bothered to schedule an appointment at the Genius Bar.

The folks over at MFC claim to have a limited solution to this problem: the iBus Data Cable — a small little dongle that attaches to the maintenance port nestled inside the band reservoir on the Apple Watch. Many Apple Watch users probably have no inkling that such a port exists, but the team at MFC have engineered a dongle to take advantage of the I/O provided by this port to facilitate watchOS restores....

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Cisco have filed an amicus brief in support of Google, after a Pennsylvania court ruled that the company had to hand over emails stored overseas in response to an FBI warrant. From a report: An amicus brief is filed by people or companies who have an interest in the case, but aren't directly involved. In this case, it's in Silicon Valley's interest to keep US law enforcement from accessing customer data stored outside the US. It isn't clear what data Google might have to hand over and, last month, the company said it would fight to the order. In the brief, the companies argue: "When a warrant seeks email content from a foreign data center, that invasion of privacy occurs outside the United States -- in the place where the customers' private communications are stored, and where they are accessed, and copied for the benefit of law enforcement, without the customer's consent."

Let the iGlasses rumors revive. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,595,237) for a “head-mounted display apparatus for retaining a portable electronic device with display.” It’s for a headset that allows an iPhone to be mounted on it.

According to the patent, a portable device (the iPhone, although the iPod is also mentioned) can be physically coupled to the head-mounted display and worn on a user’s head. Each device “may be allowed to extend its features and/or services to the other device for the purpose of enhancing, increasing and/or eliminating redundant functions between the head-mounted device and the portable electronic device.” 

Apple says there’s is a need for an improved head-mounted display system, particularly a system that temporarily integrates or merges both mechanically and electronically a head-mounted device with a portable electronic device. Such a configuration would allow, among other things, e user to view media on a...

The problem seems to be that Withings is now owned by Nokia, which announced in January that it has filed a number of complaints against Apple in Germany and the U.S, alleging that Apple products infringe a number of its patents. Ilkka Rahnasto, head of Patent Business at Nokia, said that, since agreeing a license covering some patents from the Nokia Technologies portfolio in 2011, Apple declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple's products. 

The actions were filed with the Regional Courts in Dusseldorf, Mannheim and Munich in Germany and the U.S. District Court...

Mazda has yet to offer up specific details as to which models would get CarPlay first, but offered the following comment on the upgrade:

“Mazda has been a CarPlay and Android Auto partner since 2014, so it is no secret that we are developing both systems to interface with our Mazda Connect infotainment system.

Quoting unnamed “supply chain makers,” the article says that Apple moved ahead the production for the new size of iPad to March instead of an earlier timetable set for May-June and is expected to unveil the new tablet at a product event to be held “in early April” to mark the inauguration of Apple's new headquarters in Cupertiono, California.

Today, Digitimes is reporting that the 3D Touch module in the OLED iPhone will cost $15, an increase of 60% over existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. This supports the idea that the iPhone 8 will come at a premium, as Apple will have to increase prices to retain its margins …

The focus of Mark Cuban’s Q&A at South by Southwest was supposed to be about government disruption, and he was supposed to hype up the Austin-based insurance company The Zebra, one of his newest investments. But Cuban, everyone’s favorite love-to-hate billionaire entrepreneur and Shark Tank star, had a few other topics in mind. You might say that the charismatic Cuban disrupted his own session. Here are the five standout anecdotes, stories, and lessons he decided to share. 

President Trump is tech illiterate, and Cuban has stories to prove it

Cuban hates when people compare him to President Trump, but it’s easy to see why they do—they are both wealthy businessmen with reality TV shows. According to Cuban, even Trump thinks they’re alike—“[He] says we’re like the Bobbsey Twins,” Cuban said—but he wants the comparisons to stop there. He told stories about Trump’s lack of basic tech skills, detailing Trump’s preferred way to respond to Cuban’s emails. ...

Fiksu’s Bay Area usage data points to new iPad...

The new iPads are en route.

Or at least they’re apparently being tested in the Bay Area.

Per mobile marketing firm Fiksu, a number of new iPad models are being tested in the region. This jibes with rumors and a leaked investor note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that indicated that Apple is expected to update its 12.9-inch iPad Pro model, as well as introduce a new 10-inch or 10.5-inch model with a narrower bezel along with a 9.7-inch option.

The data comes from Fiksu’s tracking and attribution SDK, which is used by thousands of mobile apps today. As part of Apple’s testing process, it installs a variety of apps — from popular ones to the more obscure — which inevitably ends up including some apps that has Fiksu’s tracking in them.

Roughly a month ahead of the most recent iPad launches, Fiksu noticed new internal model names “6,3/6,4” and “6,7/6,8” being tested around Cupertino. This time around it’s seeing “7,1” “7,2,” “7,3,” and “7,4.”...

Playing the name game with Intel’s object...

Intel does a lot of the heavy lifting to power some of our most-used products, working silently behind the scenes to make things run. But South by Southwest is far from a subtle, behind-the-scenes kind of place—and Intel’s pop-up lounge was full of demos that showed off what the company is doing in the AI space.

My favorite demo may not have been flashy, but it showed off a key component of machine learning: object recognition. I held up a series of photos showing a wide variety of stuff—animals, people, vehicles, household items, plants—and the software correctly named it all. It also told me how confident it was in its answer, and many objects were named with 100-percent accuracy.

How to use Exposé in macOS Sierra

The Exposé feature of macOS Sierra lets you easily navigate through your window clutter by highlighting certain windows, giving you an overview of all open windows or clearing everything away.

It’s a built-in feature of the operating system that can give you fast access to any open window with a few keystrokes, temporarily hide all open windows, or scale all windows down so you can get an overview of all of them. Here's how to use Exposé.

Open a few windows to see Exposé in action. To show windows by application, press F10; Exposé highlights one application's open window(s) while dimming everything behind it. To toggle through other application windows, press the Tab key. Click a window to select it, or press F10 to return everything back as it was.

To view all your open windows, press F9. To select a window, click it. To return your view back to normal, press F9 again.

Press F11 to hide all open windows.

Red Clock for iPhone is a fine, if simple, alarm...

By Frank Petrie

Red Clock is a simply designed desk clock app. It is more accurately an all-in-one alarm clock and weather app. You have access to settings for over a dozen themes. The $1.99 app can viewed in either portrait or landscape. It has an "Info Bar" along the bottom that allows you to finely tailor any of your settings.

The clock has a night mode that is easily accessible by swiping down the screen. Or you can permanently set it from within settings. It can be set to either 12 hour or 24 hour mode. You can add seconds to the display, if you so desire.

I found the clock mode, while being pleasantly minimalist, to be something probably already in your arsenal. You can set the font from a regular, thin Helvetica to a purportedly bold version. But to be honest, I found the difference to be negligible.

As a weather app. while including some easily...

South by Southwest was the birthplace of Twitter, Foursquare, and Meerkat, the now-defunct app that kicked off the social livestreaming phenomenon. That’s why creators flock to Austin every year with hopes of striking it rich, and a handful of startups are selected to compete in the South by Southwest Interactive Innovation Awards. Before the winners are announced at the end of the conference, showgoers get to check out live demos during the Finalist Showcase.

We won’t know who is named the best-of-the-best until late Tuesday, but if we were judging, we know what our top lineup would be. And the nominees are…

HBO brought its best shows to life at SXSW with an...

With new seasons of Veep and Silicon Valley premiering in April and Game of Thrones scheduled to return for a 7-episode season in July, HBO used South by Southwest to promote all three with a themed escape room that was surprisingly awesome.

Escape rooms are mystery games where you have to solve puzzles to get out of a locked room. They’re popping up all over the country, and HBO jumped on the bandwagon by turning a downtown Austin event space into what looked like a television set. The set had three rooms, each a replica of a space from HBO’s three most popular shows. We had to find clues and solve them to “escape” each room in less than five minutes. Hilarity ensued. No prior knowledge of the shows was necessary to solve the puzzles, but fans were delighted by the details (when they weren’t scrambling to unlock each door in the allotted time).

Health data collected entirely from smartphones can be reliable, research from Mount Sinai Hospital claims. The researchers involved found — as noted by The Verge -- that Apple’s ResearchKit platform and an app for asthma were fairly accurate when compared to existing patient studies.

ResearchKit turns an iPhone into a tool for medical research by helping doctors, scientists and other researchers gather data more frequently and more accurately from participants anywhere in the world using iPhone apps. Participants enrolled in these app-based studies can review an interactive informed consent process, easily complete active tasks or submit survey responses, and choose how their health data is shared with researchers, making contributions to medical research easier than ever.
