Opinion: Seven reasons why the IBM partnership could...

Wall Street seemed pretty unmoved by Apple’s announcement of its partnership with IBM, the pre-market share price barely twitching, and analysts pointing to the high level of existing iOS usage in the enterprise sector, suggesting that only trivial gains would result.

Part of the reason for that impression is the hype Apple has given to the penetration level of  iOS devices in enterprise. Back in January, Tim Cook described the numbers as “unbelieveable,” stating that the iPhone is used in 97 percent and of Fortune 500 companies and the iPad in 98 percent.

It doesn’t sound from these impressive figures that there’s much room for growth. But I think the reality is somewhat different … ...

Though it will not come as surprising news to industry watchers, a new report compiling sales channel data from 35 countries puts Apple, Samsung and China-based Xiaomi as the only three companies really selling smartphones. What may be surprising to some, however, is just how well the iPhone line is doing overall; in addition to the iPhone 5s being the clear winner as the top-selling model, the much-maligned iPhone 5c took fifth place, followed by the two-and-a-half-year-old iPhone 4S in sixth place....

jmcbain writes: According to an article on Recode, Apple and IBM have announced a major partnership to bring mobile services to enterprise customers. "The deal calls for IBM and Apple to develop more than 100 industry-specific applications that will run on the iPhone and iPad. Apple will add a new class of service to its AppleCare program and support aimed at enterprise customers. IBM will also begin to sell iPhones and iPads to its corporate customers and will devote more than 100,000 people, including consultants and software developers, to the effort. Enterprise applications will in many cases run on IBM's cloud infrastructure or on private clouds that it has built for its customers. Data for those applications will co-exist with personal data like photos and personal email that will run on Apple's iCloud and other cloud services."

The Beetle maker was an early adopter of iPod compatibility with its vehicles, but has done little with Apple since then.

KaOS Calms Down KDE


KaOS is an interesting and very efficient Linux distribution built around a refined KDE desktop environment. The KDE integration is much more controlled in KaOS than in other Linux choices. The latest release for this 14-month young Linux distro came in late June. KaOS is a bit of a rarity. It is independent of other distros -- not a direct relative of other Linux offshoots. That means it does not rely on repositories developed and maintained by larger Linux communities.

Adobe releases free font: Source Han Sans

In celebration of its 25th year of typeface development, Adobe has released Source Han Sans, a new family of free, open source fonts that harmonizes East Asian and Latin font designs. More than three years in the making, this is one of Adobe’s most complex font projects, requiring cooperation among five different companies to accurately represent the more than 65,000 glyphs (characters) required for typesetting in Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) languages.

East Asian fonts, which serve approximately 1/4 of the world’s population, are historically based on Chinese ideograms. They’re also large, complex and expensive—with far fewer style choices available than western fonts. Because of the huge scope of this project, Adobe worked with Google and three other companies to...

Apple and IBM's new partnership is an effort to support iOS in large businesses.

Andrew Cunningham

Apple and IBM are working together again. No, it's not a revival of PowerPC Macs—the two companies have entered into an agreement to strengthen Apple's position in large businesses using IBM's software, services, and partnerships.

The deal focuses mostly on things that will make iOS devices more palatable to people who are used to working with tightly controlled Windows PCs. IBM will offer "more than 100 industry-specific enterprise solutions including native apps" made specifically for the iPhone and iPad under the "IBM MobileFirst Solutions for iOS" banner, though the press release isn't specific about what kind of apps those will be or what they'll enable.

As far as prices go, for $45 a month, the plan gets you unlimited talk and text with 500MB of data. Should you need more data, you can pay for BRIDGE DATA, which runs $5 for another 500MB, $10 for 1GB, or $20 for 3GB. It’s important to note, however, that BRIDGE DATA expires after a predetermined number of days ($5 data after 30 days, $10...

Pathogens on a plane: How to stay healthy in flight

NPR:

If you’re going to pick up a pathogen on an intercontinental flight, it will probably be one hanging out on your seat or another surface, says Dr. Mark Gendreau, who specializes in aviation medicine at Lahey Medical Center in Peabody, Mass.

“When you look at most infectious diseases, the overwhelming majority are transmitted when you touch a contaminated surface,” he says. “You grab the door knob of the airplane bathroom, and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth.”

“But we’re not all doomed to get sick after a plane flight,” Gendreau says. “You can change behaviors when you’re traveling and substantially reduce the risk of catching anything.”

Alleged iPhone 6 battery problems solved via new...

Apple has solved battery problems for the iPhone 6 by turning to a new supplier, Taiwan's Simplo Technologies, says the Economic Daily News. The company was reportedly having trouble finding batteries that were both thin and flexible enough from previous suppliers Samsung and LG Chemical. It's not clear whether EDN is referring to the 4.7-inch iPhone -- most commonly labeled the iPhone 6 -- or the 5.5-inch model as well, which was already said to have had battery problems fixed....

External Link: Apple Denied Touch ID Trademark

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has denied Apple’s application to trademark Touch ID — the fingerprint-sensing technology built into the iPhone 5s. The reason why is that Touch ID is too similar to an existing trademark, KRONOS TOUCH ID, which the USPTO claims could cause customer confusion. Apple has six months to change the trademark or make a deal with Kronos, a workforce management solution company.

Nest, Samsung Spin Up Thread Smart Home...

Learning thermostat maker Nest, along with Samsung, ARM and a handful of other companies have teamed up to create a new wireless networking standard for smart home devices they're calling Thread. Instead of relying on traditional WiFi or Bluetooth, Thread uses ZigBee's 802.15.4-based wireless hardware, giving smart homes a network outside of the systems we're already using.

The Mac Observer Spin: WiFi and Bluetooth are already capable of handling the communication needs for most smart home devices, but the idea of a special network just for those does sound interesting. Unless Nest and Samsung can rope in and control ZigBee's fragmentation, however, Thread probably won't gain much traction.

A new manufacturer might have resolved the battery problem for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 handset.

Per Taiwan’s Economic Daily News and GforGames, Taiwan-based Simplo Technologies is said to have been able to craft batteries thin and flexible enough for the so-called “iPhone 6,” a feat apparently not able to be matched by current suppliers Samsung and LG Chemical.

Reports that Apple’s new 5.5-inch “phablet” may be delayed first surfaced in April. The device’s design is said to call for a battery less than 2 millimeters tall, a significant reduction from the...

The Mac Observer Spin: Considering how marketing-heavy Microsoft was under former CEO Steve Ballmer, it won't be any surprise to see a large percentage of Mr. Nadella's layoffs coming from there.
