New Apple Park drone footage emerges, shows work on...

The latest drone footage of the Apple Park campus, shot by Matthew Roberts, reveals the
visitor center taking shape, the reassembled historic barn, the lake/pond looking almost ready to be filled with water and additional greenery that’s been added.

The newly-planted trees help define what the space will be, and with the inclusion of them in the interior of the ring, this helps flesh out what the final green areas will look like.

Additional work has been done inside the glass-enclosed entrance to the Steve Jobs Theater, and viewers can see the visitor center, located across the street, starting to take shape. This will combine an on-site Apple Store with a cafe open to the public.

The large pond/small lake inside the ring has giant sheets of waterproof membrane laid out in the center, suggesting that water will soon be pumped into it.

Interestingly, Apple, which promised to protect and faithfully reassemble the historic Glendenning Barn...

The state of Mac gaming

Gaming on the Mac is terrible, right? That has been the consensus among gamers for a decade-plus—Ars even declared Mac gaming dead all the way back in 2007. But in reality, the situation has gotten better. And after Apple dedicated an unprecedented amount of attention to Mac gaming at WWDC 2017, things might be looking up for Mac gamers in the coming years.

Apple patent shows an iMac with slots for recharging...

I don’t think this will happen, but Apple has been granted a patent that shows an iMac with a recharging slot of a removable battery for an iPhone, iPad, Magic Keyboard, and Magic Mouse. The patent (number 20170200988) is for a “battery charging system and mobile and accessory devices.”

It involves a method and system for recharging batteries for wireless electronic devices. The system includes a host machine — that would be the iMac — providing charging slots and wireless devices coupled to and powered by a batteries. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that an “apparatus or method” is needed that can that can reduce or help users manage the power requirements of the plethora of wireless devices. The company says it would be helpful to have an apparatus or method that can reduce the time wireless devices are taken out of commission as their batteries are re-charged and that it would be helpful to have an apparatus or method that streamline the process of charging the...

Comment: Suggestions that Apple is still undecided...

John Gruber has succinctly summarised my own doubts about claims that Apple is still in the process of making hardware decisions about the iPhone 8 at this late stage. In particular, that no final decision has yet been made about whether or not to include Touch ID, or replace it altogether with face-recognition.

I think it’s bonkers to think that Apple is still working on hardware decisions like this in the middle of July […] Hardware doesn’t work like that. Many of the decisions related to the hardware on this year’s new iPhones were made two years ago …

Although there have...

Edifier MP700 offers high-end audio in a portable...

By Aaron Lee

Cheap portable speakers are all about compact size and mainly focus on making the music streaming from a phone louder, without a strong focus on sound quality.

However, the $229.99 Edifier MP700 delivers a high-end audio in a portable package with two drivers and two silk dome tweeters for balanced sound. 

The streamlined design has a full length handle, so it’s (relatively) easy to carry considering it’s 11 x 4.3 x 2.6 inches and weighs 3.5 pounds. Plus, it can double as a stand to angle the speaker for improved listening. 

The MP700 produces clear, strong music with built-in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Dynamic Range Control (DRC) for balanced, but powerful, 36 watts of sound. It features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that delivers up to eight hours of listening time per charge. Unfortunately, there's no battery level on the speaker...

iMac: Everything you need to know about Apple’s all-...

The iMac is a direct descendant of the very first Mac, and it’s often the computer that longtime users think about when they think about the Macintosh. The iMac’s all-in-one design is popular and iconic.

The iMac is great for both novices and demanding users. It can handle general-purpose and heavy-duty tasks equally well. It’s ideal for someone who needs to buy a complete computer setup (keyboard, mouse or trackpad, and display) and wants to maximize workspace efficiency.

The current iMac lineup was released in June 2017 during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. While the new iMacs might look the same on the outside as its predecesors, they’re quite a bit different inside. It starts with the screen: Apple says the new iMacs have the “best Mac displays ever,” upping the brightness to 500 nits to make them 43 percent brighter while bringing support for a billion colors. You’ll also get faster Intel Kaby Lake...

Hyperloop One on Wednesday announced that it had conducted a successful first test of a specially designed vehicle to travel in a vacuum environment. The company achieved controlled propulsion and levitation of a Hyperloop One vehicle at 70 mph on a 315-foot test track in the Nevada desert. The test vehicle reached nearly 2Gs of acceleration during its brief 5.3 second test run on the specially built track. A comparison has been drawn between the Hyperloop accomplishment and the Wright Brothers' first test flight in December 1903.

“It’s the launch of what they’re going to be doing in the near future,” Lucas told Fairfax Media, which owns The Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s got to do with how the watch will sync with gym equipment and your vital stats like heart rate and calorie output.”

In addition to a faster processor and longer battery life, cellular connectivity has been a rumored addition to the Apple Watch. SIG analyst Christopher Rolland believes...

CDW's got a pretty good deal right now for ultrawide curved display fans. The retailer's selling the 34-inch Acer XR341CK for $550. That's quite a drop from this monitor's initial $1,100 asking price back in 2015, and it's better than the best price you'll find elsewhere. For example, the going rate in Amazon's marketplace is about $150 more.

The specs on Acer's ultrawide IPS panel are a mix of great and respectable. It has a 4ms response time, which is about what you'd expect on an IPS display. It also has a 75Hz refresh rate. Speaking of which—this monitor comes with AMD FreeSync technology. This allows compatible AMD graphics cards to sync their refresh rates with the monitor. The end result is less screen tearing and image stutter. (By the...

Other views show continuing work on the atrium (which has huge opening glass doors) and some outside shaded areas for employees, the circular pond inside the "spaceship" which is about ready to have water added, the huge visitor center / Apple retail store that is across the street, and the historic barn that was rebuilt on the site near the employee fitness center.

External Link: Verizon Users: Change Your PIN...

In the latest high-profile security breach, PINs associated with 6 million Verizon accounts were exposed on an unsecured server, along with subscriber names and cellphone numbers. The information came from call logs from people who had contacted Verizon customer service in the last 6 months. Verizon asks for a PIN when you call in to make account changes, so an attacker with that information could not only make unwanted changes to your account, but also hijack your account in such a way as to intercept text messages used for two-factor authentication. (Better 2FA options include a system like Apple’s, which relies on an Apple-managed communications channel to devices you own, or an authenticator app like Google Authenticator, Authy, or 1Password.) If you use Verizon and particularly if you know you have contacted the company recently, log in to your Verizon account or call Verizon (yeah, we get the irony) to change your PIN as soon as possible.

The BIAS Twin Delay, Modulation, and Distortion pedals are Positive Grid’s new line of professional effects stompboxes designed for maximum tone versatility. All three pedals feature the same incredible tone of the award-winning BIAS Pro pedals in a compact 2-button pedal format.

I love Positive Grid’s software, but I haven’t tried their hardware gear yet. From what I’ve seen, it’s great sounding though.

∞ Amazon to take on HomePod with next-gen Echo

Devindra Hardawar, writing for Engadget:

Amazon is working on a new Echo that will improve on the first speaker in practically every way, a source tells Engadget. And, not surprisingly, it’s aiming to take some of the hype away from Apple’s HomePod.

Comment: Until holodecks arrive, AR not VR will be...

While I’m generally more of a hard-SF fan, I’m not above a little lighthearted fun where sci-fi is concerned – so I can enjoy a good Star Trek episode as much as the next person. And there are a couple of Star Trek toys I think most of us would like to see: replicators and holodecks.

Replicators as the kind of ultimate Amazon Prime, putting anything you might want into your hands instantly. Holodecks as a way to experience any sights and activities you could ever wish, without even having to leave the building.

But while VR might be the first stepping stone toward holodecks, I think it’s augmented reality rather than...

For example, I texted the words “send me cake” and got a text back (in about 30 seconds) with a pic of Wayne Thiebaud’s “Dessert Tray”.

SFMOMA has about 35,000 pieces in their collection, only a fraction of that on display at any moment. This gives you random access to the entire thing. Fun!

∞ Another peek at ARKit’s future

This video shows a more sophisticated bit of ARKit, letting you walk around a room and quickly map out the floorspace. While this app might not widely useful, it does show the tip of a pretty large iceberg.

For example, imagine walking/measuring around your entire house and ending up with a reasonably precise set of up to the minute blueprints. You might feed those into another app and place/rearrange furniture to get a sense of what will fit and what works where. You might use the numbers to order the precise amount of carpeting you need, or take your app to a store to make sure that bookshelf will fit in that corner.

Take a look. ARKit is a big deal.

Feature Request: Help us identify where audio alerts...

macOS is very flexible when it comes to alerts. System Preferences allows us to choose on an app-by-app basis whether we want alerts that stay on the screen until dismissed, banners that display for a few seconds and then auto-dismiss, or no alerts at all.

We can choose whether or not apps play sounds. We can decide whether or not we want their alerts to show up in the Notification Center. And we can tell the Mac whether or not to add a badge to the app icon, for example to show how many unread emails we have.

So you might think that with all these different options at our disposal, there isn’t anything more that we could want. But there is just one more thing I want – and I want it rather a lot …

∞ Amazon Prime Day’s chess move against Apple’s...

The chess move? Amazon used the heavily promoted Prime Day to sell as many Amazon Echo devices as they possibly could, in part in an effort to disrupt Apple’s entry into the market with December’s HomePod rollout.

Brian Sozzi, writing for The Street:

Amazon said that it sold three times as many Echo devices worldwide midway through Prime Day. Imagine what the grand total looks like seeing as Amazon was hawking the smart speaker for a low, low price of $89.99. What this means to Apple is rather simple to understand: Amazon has managed to stuff more homes with Echos in front of Apple’s major HomePod launch. Hence, if you bought a discounted Echo why in the world would you want a HomePod, too?

While I do agree that Amazon is doing everything they can to maximize...

12 sweet cases for the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro

Cover it up

Image by Case-Mate

Apple’s new 10.5-inch iPad Pro hits a sweet spot for many—it’s big enough to offer productivity gains, yet small enough to still be pretty portable. If you’re using the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro as a laptop replacement and toting it all over town with you, you’ve probably realized this by now: You need a case or some sort of protection for it. It’s still an iPad, after all, not a laptop, and that big, bright, 10.5-inch screen is easily damaged. But don’t worry—we’ve got your back. Here are some of the coolest cases on the market.

Editor Paul Machliss has cut some difficult movies. You’ve seen his work if you’ve ever seen the quick edits in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The World’s End, both personal favorites.

From the linked Premium Beat article:

For the film to work just right, Machliss had to be on set editing to verify that the timing of each shot was perfect: “To make it work you had to sort of be there at the moment of creation . . . I was there every day of every moment of every take. Edgar would do a take and yell ‘Cut!’ and then from the other side of the set go ‘How was that Paul?’ . . . and sort of wait until you went . . . ‘Yes it’s good.’ Then he felt he could move on. The advantage, of course being, we knew that six...

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone to use specialized laser with...

It’s a rumor, so part of it must be true…

Apple is said to be working on implementing a specialized rear-facing laser system in its upcoming “iPhone 8” that will facilitate augmented reality applications, like those produced with ARKit, as well as faster and more accurate autofocus capabilities.

Per a source close to the story, Apple will apply VSCEL technology to the rear-facing camera. This system, in turn, calculates distance to a target using light pulses and time of flight (TOF) measurements, would allow for extremely accurate depth mapping, a plus for AR applications.

Apple’s current system ARKit utilizes complex algorithms derived from optical information provided by the iPhone’s iSight camera.

It’s thought that the rear-facing laser will also aid in faster and more accurate autofocus capabilities. Similar systems have been employed in digital SLRs and compact cameras for years, but have only recently made their way to small form factor...

Apple patent involves facial recognition on devices...

The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) is 99% sure that, despite some rumors, Apple isn’t ditching Touch ID on the upcoming “iPhone 8” in place of facial recognition identification. However, the next generation smart phone may boast both technologies. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170199997 for “embedded authentication systems in an electronic device.” (Interestingly, the graphics for the article also show a Mac. Hmmmm.)

The authentication system may include one or more sensors operative to detect biometric information of a user. The sensors may be positioned in the device such that the sensors may detect appropriate biometric information as the user operates the device, without requiring the user to perform a step for providing the biometric information such as facial recognition instead of providing a fingerprint sensor in a separate part of the device housing).

Working while traveling is no easy task, but ZAGG’s Rugged Messenger wireless Bluetooth keyboard makes it a bit easier for owners of Apple's 9.7-inch iPad. It’s a durable, detachable case for the tablet that offers a keyboard, multi-device pairing, wireless connectivity, and a kickstand. Since Apple doesn’t offer a keyboard for the non-pro tablet, this will be a must-have accessory for some folks.

The Rugged Messenger’s rechargeable battery purportedly lasts up to two years between charges; we’ll have to take ZAGG’s word on that, as I’ve only been using the case for four weeks. What’s more, a sleep/wake function helps preserve the battery when the keyboard is not in use. 

The Island-style keys offer a relatively natural typing experience, and the Rugged Messenger conveniently folds flat to cover the keyboard. However, keyboard backlighting would have been nice for those who...

Using the Disk Utility in macOS Sierra, you can create a blank disk image for storage. A disk image (.dmg file) is a file that looks and acts like a mountable device or volume. You can fill an empty disk image with data, then use it to create disks, CDs, or DVDs.

To create an empty disk image:

  • Choose File > New Image > Blank Image.
  • Enter a file name for the disk image, add tags if necessary, then choose where to save it. This is the name that appears in the Finder, where you save the disk image file before opening it.
  • In the Name field, enter the name for the disk image.
  • This is the name that appears on your desktop and in the Finder sidebar, after you open the disk image.
  • In the Size field, enter a size for the disk image.
  • Click the Format pop-up menu, then choose the format for the disk:

If the disk will be used with Mac computers, choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive,...

Patent trollin’: Uniloc sues Apple one more time

Another day, another lawsuit. AppleInsider reports that Uniloc, a “patent troll,” has filed yet another suit — actually two, against Apple claiming, naturally, patent infringement.

Filed with the patent holder friendly Eastern Texas District Court, they relate to intellectual property reassigned from 3Com and involve AirPlay and Continuity.

Previous lawsuits allege infringement of patents reassigned from Hewlett-Packard and 3Com that involve a method by which a temperature sensor is used to monitor battery heat during charge and discharge events. Current is subsequently limited to prevent overheating and extend the life of the battery. Uniloc claims the Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Apple Watch all use temperature sensors to moderate battery charge and draw, and infringe the patents.

The sound quality of the HomePod has been a key focus for Apple in its marketing for the smart speaker device, openly comparing it to the inferior audio of the Amazon Echo at WWDC. However, the HomePod isn’t launching until the end of the year and Amazon isn’t standing still.

Engadget sources report that the next Echo will include multiple tweeters inside, which should result in a dramatic improvement in sound. It also seems like the device will look more like a HomePod than the current Echo, substituting hard plastic cylinder for ‘cloth-like’ rounded shell.
