Threes!, Elevate, and Taylor Swift dominate iTunes...

Apple’s annual Best of iTunes list is the least controversial year-end retrospective, but that’s OK: This year’s winning apps, songs, TV shows, and movies are sure to please every friend and relative who finds an iTunes gift card from you in their stocking or mail box for the holidays.

Not surprisingly, Apple named blockbuster hit Threes! the top game of the year. Macworld staffers were just as obsessed with Threes! as Apple—we even compiled some tips to help you conquer this puzzler. Leo’s Fortune was Apple’s runner-up in the category. Monument Valley, Hitman GO, XCOM: Enemy Within, Rules!, Farmville 2: Country Escape, Micromon, and Crazy Taxi City Rush also made the list of best games of the year.

Apple is joining in on Computer Science Education Week with coding workshops and special events in its retail stores.

On December 11, U.S. Apple Stores will hold an “Hour of Code” workshop, aimed at teaching children the basics of computer programming. Availability is limited, however, and participants will need to sign up through Apple's website. (Additional events are happening at schools and other institutions around the country, and online tutorials are available as well.)

Apple is also holding special events at several of its larger Apple Stores around the world. Visitors to the Apple Store in New York's SoHo district, for instance, can listen to Hopscotch CEO Jocelyn Leavitt on December 10, and TouchPress co-founder Theodore Gray is scheduled to speak at Apple's Chicago store on December 8. For those who can't make it, Apple has...

Twitter to beef up reporting, blocking features

You’re about to get more controls for your Twitter account.

Last Tuesday, Twitter issued a blog post stating that the company would be enhancing its in-product harassment reporting and making improvements to “block.”

Everything that happens in the world, happens on Twitter – to the tune of more than 500 million Tweets every day. That can sometimes include content that violates our rules around harassment and abuse and we want to make it easier to report such content. So, we’re improving the reporting process to make it much more mobile-friendly, require less initial information, and, overall, make it simpler to flag Tweets and accounts for review. These enhancements similarly improve the reporting process for those who observe abuse but aren’t receiving it directly. And to enable faster response...

Apple manager gets year in jail, $4.5m fine for...

Onetime Apple supply manager Paul Shin Devine will spend a year in prison and repay $4.5 million for selling Apple's secrets to suppliers, the AP reports. Devine, who worked at Apple from 2005 until his arrest in August of 2010, pleaded guilty to wire fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering—and could have been sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison.

Working with Singapore resident Andrew Ang, Devine was accused of selling confidential information to companies that hoped to become Apple suppliers, and to suppliers trying to negotiate better deals with the company. Winning an Apple contract can be a make-or-break moment for a supplier, as we saw in the recent dust-up between...

FCC releases report on millions of smartphone thefts...

In a quick note on Twitter, the FCC reported that 59 percent of robberies in San Francisco involved theft of a smartphone. The report also stated that in 2013, 3.1 million Americans had smartphones stolen, up 93 percent from 1.6M in 2012.

In addition, only 22 percent of smartphone users installed software that can locate their phone, while 46 percent of robberies in New York in 2013 involved smartphones.

It’s a fairly lengthy report, but it might be good to read.

Beyond that, just be careful out there with your iOS or Android device, be sure to back it up either to the cloud or your Mac or PC, install tracking software on it and make sure its familiar weight is on you before you walk into a new place.

An iPod Moment Is About to Make Your PC Obsolete


I was at Dell's thin client briefing earlier this week at its new facility in California's Silicon Valley, and it clearly is feeling very confident, in light of HP's plan to split its company. There really have been only two major players in the thin client space for a few years, and they are HP and Dell, but since thin clients require both a specialized client focus and unique servers, splitting HP along those lines would seem to make its offering obsolete. The idea of a computing appliance has been attractive for a long time.

Even a man as visionary as Steve Jobs is going to have his hits and misses. In a bunch of interviews given around 1995 and 1996, Jobs was already predicting the importance of ecommerce.

About 15% of goods and services in the US are sold from catalogues or via television. All that’s going to go on the web and more. Billions and billions, soon tens of billions of dollars worth of goods and services are going to be sold on the web.

But as Business Insider noted from a 1996 Wired interview, he didn’t get everything right. It’s hard to even remember a time when Google wasn’t the first place we started when researching anything from a new gadget to traffic conditions, yet Jobs didn’t see us using the web as a source of...

The trouble with cheap oil

The New Yorker:

High oil prices would force governments, corporations, and consumers to find another way to power the world. It was a nice dream, but it’s over now. We are awash in cheap oil. Propelled largely by a boom in domestic production, due to hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,’’ and horizontal drilling, oil prices fell below $70 a barrel on Thursday—from a high in June of $112.12. Prices have fallen nearly every day for the past two months, and some economists predict that we will soon see oil selling for less than fifty dollars a barrel.

Domestic production isn’t the only reason prices are falling but it’s certainly true that cheaper oil just delays the inevitable.

Helmetless football? It’s the new practice at New...

Peter King:

The sight of players going into contact without helmets is jarring to observers accustomed to standard football drills. Players dive at tackling dummies, or push into blocking sleds, or wrap up a live runner without helmets. Their heads are bare, and so by instinct, they don’t lead with their heads.

“At first, tackling without a helmet doesn’t seem like the best idea, with the size of the guys we have around here,” says Cameron Shorey, a 6-5, 252-pound sophomore defensive end. “But when we started doing it, it made more sense to keep our heads out of the contact zone. We use our chests, use our legs, and absorb most of the force with our bodies, not our heads.”

I love football – I played it in high school – but I definitely believe we have to find ways to make it safer for the players’ brains.

Since the series' introduction in 1991, countless players have been stormed by barbarians, built the pyramids, and been nuked into oblivion (because of a coding bug) by the Indians.

Neglecting the Lessons of Cypherpunk History

Nicola Hahn writes Over the course of the Snowden revelations there have been a number of high profile figures who've praised the merits of encryption as a remedy to the quandary of mass interception. Companies like Google and Apple have been quick to publicize their adoption of cryptographic countermeasures in an effort to maintain quarterly earnings. This marketing campaign has even convinced less credulous onlookers like Glenn Greenwald. For example, in a recent Intercept piece, Greenwald claimed: "It is well-established that, prior to the Snowden reporting, Silicon Valley companies were secret, eager and vital participants in the growing Surveillance State. Once their role was revealed, and they perceived those disclosures threatening to their future profit-making, they instantly adopted a PR tactic of presenting themselves as Guardians of Privacy. Much of that is simply self-serving re-branding, but some of it, as I described last week, are genuine improvements in the...

Wired:

At a space shuttle launch, a front row seat is 3 miles away. If you want to get closer, you have two options: Be an astronaut, or be a camera. Photographer Dan Winters got a rare chance to explore the second option.

In 2011, after NASA announced it would be ending the shuttle program, Winters received permission to document the final launches of the space shuttles Discovery, Endeavor and Atlantis. He’s compiled that work in the book Last Launch. A shuttle launch is a violent event, yet Winters captured them with the same stunning intimacy found in his portraits. And while he had unparalleled access to make that happen, the logistics were tremendous. At WIRED by Design, the photographer explained how he got the shots.

Both the above video and the Wired article are fascinating looks at both the technical and emotional side of photographing these last moments of history.

Six Colors:

Apple’s getting its lunch eaten by competitors, and the hits just keep on coming. The most recent numbers have Google’s Chromecast and Amazon’s Fire TV pulling ahead of Apple’s set-top box, and you know what? They should be. Right now, they’re better products: they have support for more services, they have more flexibility, and they’re cheaper.

The Apple TV, on the other hand, hasn’t gotten a meaningful upgrade since 2010.

∞ Autocorrect canceling gesture

I am a fan of autocorrect. And I hate it, too.

I love autocorrect when it helps me properly spell a difficult or mis-typed word or when it speeds up my typing by properly predicting the next word I’d like to type.

Here’s a proposal to make autocorrect a bit better.

Gadget Ogling: Seeing E-Ink Everywhere, Breathing...


Welcome, dear readers, and set aside that last leftover-turkey sandwich for a short while as we explore the murky landscape of freshly announced gadgets. On the menu in our post-Thanksgiving edition are a pair of e-ink smart devices, wearables with a health focus, an intelligent home brewing kit, a kitschy kitchen product, and perhaps the most useless item we've included in this column to date. I really liked the concept of the YotaPhone when I covered it last year. Now the dual-screen Android phone is striking again.

New Yorkers protesting the recent decision of a grand jury not to indict the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner took their movement to Apple’s iconic glass cube on 5th Avenue earlier today.

Steve Wozniak on Designing Apple I and Apple II,...

Bloomberg interviewed Steve "Woz" Wozniak about the early early days of Apple Inc., or Apple Computer, Inc. as it was known back in the day. It's a fantastic interview (embedded below), and interesting things include Woz talking about his own pursuit of artistic perfection in the Apple I circuit boards. He said that he threw his own designs out the window and red one circuit board when he realized how he could reduce the number of drilled holes needed from eight down to five. He also downplayed Apple's garage startup myth. While Apple did spend a few weeks doing some work in Steve Jobs's parent's garage, saying, "there were hardly ever more than two people in the garage, and mostly they were just sitting around doing nothing productive." He also talked about Steve Jobs in the early days. It's the most interesting interview with Mr. Wozniak that I've seen in years.

Steve Jobs deposition reveals details of Apple’s...

The videotaped deposition of Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs was played in court today as part of the ongoing antitrust lawsuit involving the iPod, iTunes, and digital rights management. As CNET reports, the video revealed new details of Apple’s deals with record labels and why the FairPlay DRM was created.

Jobs said in his statement that because the record labels were afraid that a store like iTunes could lead to music piracy, they required Apple to create and implement a digital rights management...

Apple DRM Lawsuit Might Be Dismissed: Plaintiffs...

UnknowingFool writes The lawsuit involving Apple and iTunes DRM may be thrown out because the plaintiffs did not own the iPods for which they are suing. The lawsuit covers iPods for the time period between September of 2006 and March of 2009. When Apple checked the serial numbers of the iPods of the plaintiffs, it appears they were not manufactured during this time. One plaintiff did purchase an iPod in 2005 and in 2010 and has withdrawn from the suit. The second plaintiff's iPod was manufactured in July 2009 but claims purchasing another iPod in 2008. Since the two plaintiffs were the only ones in the suit, the case may be dismissed for lack of standing.

Apple on trial: company execs say DRM was forced on...

OAKLAND, Calif. — Top Apple executives were on the witness stand Thursday, contesting class-action lawyers' contentions that the company's copy-protection scheme was anti-competitive and illegal.

It was the third day of testimony in a long-running antitrust class-action suit that has finally headed to a trial. Plaintiffs representing a class of resellers and consumers say Apple's digital rights management (DRM) shut out competitors and illegally raised prices.

First up was iTunes chief Eddy Cue, who repeatedly pointed out that Apple didn't want DRM on its music at all. But big record labels wouldn't participate in an online music marketplace unless DRM was present, he said.

How Apple’s iPad Could Flourish Once Again

Apple's iPad sales have been declining. Everyone in North America and Europe who needs or wants one has bought one. Now, Apple is faced with the need to engage new, perhaps less affluent geographies. But also, crucially, there is the business of getting the iPad on a path to more capabilities, growing with user needs and expectations. The phenomenal sales of the MacBook Air punctuates this lack of iPad development and maturity. What's the fix?
