Ask Slashdot: Why Do Most Tablet Specs Suck?

Slashdot reader Qbertino describes himself as a "happy tablet user," moving from an old HTC Flyer to his Yoga 2. But he notes that most other tablets "have laughable battery times," and "I've yet to find a tablet that does not give me storage or memory problems in some way or other, lasts for a day or two in power and doesn't feel chintzy and like it won't stand a month of regular everyday use and carrying around..." He asks why none of the manufacturers seem willing to offer more than one gigabyte of RAM -- and why they're so stingy with storage. "Where is the rugged 16GB RAM / 1TB Storage / 20-hour battery tablet?"

So leave your educated opinions in the comments. What are your thoughts on the current tablet market? And are they the ultimate all-purpose "convergence" device that Apple and Ubuntu seem to think they are?

Apple Is Fighting A Secret War To Keep You From...

It's no secret that Apple makes a ton of money by charging 'astronomical' fee for replacing and fixing display and other components of iPhone and iPad (as well as Mac line). For instance, the company charges $599 for replacing the display on the iPad Pro tablet. Which sounds insane when you realize that you can almost certainly purchase a new iPad Pro under $700. And this is what most people do. A Huffington Post article notes that this behavior has contributed significantly in "generating heaps of e-waste." Citing many advocates, the publication claims that Apple has "opposed legislation that could help curb it." From the report: The Huffington Post spoke with politicians in two states who support such legislation, and confirmed through government filings that Apple has lobbied on the issue. Four states -- Minnesota, Nebraska, Massachusetts and New York -- have considered adopting "right to repair" amendments, which would update existing laws regarding the sale of electronic...

Siri is widely expected to make up a big part of Monday’s WWDC keynote (alongside iOS 10, macOS 10.12 and more) but it seems like it is already inadvertently tipping the hat on what is going to be announce. Brian Roemelle found that by asking the voice assistant about “windows” on his phone, Siri would start referencing the “Finder” app in its responses.

Obviously, iOS doesn’t have a Finder app but OS X does. It seems like Siri is unintentionally leaking the unveiling of Siri for Mac ahead of schedule, or perhaps even a brand new Finder app for iOS 10 …

In a post on Medium, security researcher Inti De Ceukelaire explains how any developer could see the URLs you share in private Facebook messages. Even if you’re only linking to cat pictures, URLs sometimes contain sensitive information that you’re unaware of, such as names, locations, and even hidden keys. When De Ceukelaire reached out to Facebook, the company said that this was “publicly-documented and intentional behavior.” Long story short: be cautious about using Facebook Messenger, particularly for any sensitive communications!

My predictions for the WWDC keynote announcement

Apple will kick off its 2016 Worldwide Developer Conference with a keynote Monday at 12 a.m. (Pacific). Following are my predictions about what will be announced and previewed:

 

  • Upcoming versions of macOS (which I think will replace the OS X moniker), iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. Of course, this prediction is a no-brainer. 
  • Introduction of a Siri software development kit. 
  • Hints at Apple’s virtual reality plans.
  • The introduction of new MacBooks and MacBook Pros, though they won’t ship until August. The MacBook Air name will be displayed and we’ll simply have MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
  • The launch of a 5K Retina Thunderbolt Display.
  • However, my crystal balls says that we won’t see new iMacs, Mac minis, Mac Pros, Apple TVs, Apple Watches, iPhones, or iPads — or any Apple Car news. New iMacs, Apple TVs, Apple Watches, iPhones, and iPad Pros will arrive in the fall and an Apple video streaming service will arrive before the...

Dave Knott writes from a report via Popular Science: Popular Science has an article detailing Campus 2, Apple's upcoming headquarters, including a video with a tour of the complex which is still under construction. The Spaceship, as many have nicknamed it, is over one mile in circumference and when it is completed later this year it will house 13,000 employees. Its exterior will largely be composed of thousands of huge curved glass planes; the floors and ceilings will be constructed from hollow concrete slabs that allow the building to "breathe," bolstering its eco-friendly qualities. Campus 2 will run entirely on renewable energy, with rooftop solar panels providing an output of 16 megawatts of power and acting as the campus's primary energy supplier. Upon completion, the main building will have four stories above ground and three below, with numerous other facilities including seven cafes, a fitness center and a 120,000 square-foot theater where Apple will hold its famous product...

Google Announces Support of the Controversial TPP

An anonymous reader writes: Google has announced in a blog post Friday their support for the controversial Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP). Recode reports: "The trade agreement includes key provisions about the global passage of digital data, intellectual property and copyright -- measures that have drawn criticism from both the political right and left, including several outspoken tech groups. Google's endorsement isn't exactly full-throated, but its stake clearly demonstrates another key area of support with the Obama administration, to which Google is close." Google's SVP and general counsel Kent Walker wrote: "The TPP is not perfect, and the trade negotiation process would certainly benefit from greater transparency. We will continue to advocate for process reforms, including the opportunity for all stakeholders to have a meaningful opportunity for input into trade negotiations." The company has already shown support of the TPP behind the Internet Association, which...

Apple usually puts up banners teasing the announcements in the theme of the invites to build excitement for the show, often revealing tidbits about the new software OS’s. Apple has put a small logo up at Bill Graham but due to the split venue (and late scheduling), there’s a chance the banners tradition will not continue this year until after the Monday keynote at 10 AM …

Amazon to offer streaming music service

Amazon.com Inc is preparing to launch a standalone music streaming subscription service, placing it squarely in competition with rival offerings from Apple Inc and Spotify, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

The service will be offered at $9.99 per month, in line with major rivals, and it will offer a competitive catalog of songs, the sources said. Amazon (AMZN.O) is finalizing licenses with labels for the service, which likely will be launched in late summer or early fall, the sources said.

I sure hope Apple has its shit together because Amazon is a master at the cloud.

DeRay Mckesson is a widely known activist in the Black Lives Matter movement and a former candidate in the race for mayor of Baltimore. He’s a high-profile target, and someone finally figured out a way to crack his popular Twitter account—by hijacking his cell phone number, and getting it reassigned to a phone under their control. This was used to push out a message in his account in support of a candidate who he says represents the antithesis of his beliefs. Those tweets have since been deleted and Twitter has restored account access to Mckesson.

A recent acquisition by a site of what’s alleged to be 32 million Twitter passwords, coupled with other breaches, password-stealing malware, and other techniques may have led to his password being compromised.

Why your next iPhone could have Intel inside

Intel has missed out on the iPhone party until now, ceding big business to other chip makers in the process. But that could be about to change.

Apple will use modems from Intel in some models of its next smartphone, replacing chips from Qualcomm, according a Bloomberg report Friday. An Intel modem will go into iPhones for the AT&T Wireless network in the U.S. and in some international versions, the report says.

If true, it would be a big win for Intel, especially after its decision to cancel its upcoming Atom chips for phones. Intel has kept its modem business alive, in part because it hopes to capitalize on the upcoming move to 5G networks.

Apple is rumored to be preparing a refreshed MacBook Pro—if not for WWDC next week, then hopefully sometime this year—and even though these new models are expected to be thinner and lighter thanks to USB-C, not everyone’s excited.

USB-C has been touted as a new standard for connecting accessories and peripherals, but compatibility across the board is still hit-or-miss. And Apple putting only one USB-C port on the refreshed 2015 and 2016 MacBook models has caused headaches for Mac users. So much so that 9to5Mac even issued a public service announcement to warn us about how the “USB-C landscape as far as accessories and compatibility with your Mac is an absolute mess.”

He claims the tech companies have chosen to “engineer themselves out of criminal investigations,” and allowed cyber-criminals to operate with impunity. Vance wants Congress to take action to force Apple and Google to make their devices accessible to law enforcement agencies with a warrant.

“In my office alone, we now have 270 lawfully-seized iPhones running iOS 8 or 9 that are completely inaccessible,” he said, according to a copy of his remarks. “These devices represent hundreds of real crimes… that cannot be fully investigated, including cases of homicide, child sex abuse, human trafficking, assault, robbery, and yes—cybercrime and identity theft...

At Monday's Worldwide Developer Conference keynote, Apple will almost certainly preview the next version of Mac OS X — which will most likely be dubbed “macOS.” Hopefully, the company will concentrate on stability and performance issue, as well as bug fixes. Beyond those, here are some things I'd love to see:

 

  • Siri support. C'mon, Apple, Mac support for the "personal digital assistant" is long overdue. And I’m pretty sure we’ll see it announced during today’s keynote at 10 a.m. (Pacific).
  • Group video calling in FaceTime.

  • The return of Save As — without having to use a special keyboard command.
  • An expanded Disk Utility that can optimize and defrag Mac volumes.

The MacPaw team has conducted a survey of 670 Mac OS X developers, to learn their preferences on app distribution channels, revenue channels, tools they prefer to use, challenges they face, etc. 

When asked how they distribute their Mac apps, 22.68% said via the Mac App Store only, 34.90% said outside the Mac App Store only, and 42.42% used both methods. When asked where they got more revenue from, 52% said the Mac App Store, while 48% said outside the MAS.

When asked if they thought sharing 30% of revenue with Apple is worth the advantages of the MAS, 62.31% of developers said “no,” while 37.69% said “yes.”

About a third of the developers the Mac Dev team asked run their own business. More than 20% of them have tried the MAS, but left. The reasons for leaving:

  • Licensing limitations: 4%;
  • API restrictions: 4%;
  • Sandboxing: 6%;
  • No app bundles: 8%;

Unlike Qualcomm, Samsung, MediaTek, and other SoC manufacturers, Apple doesn't integrate an LTE modem into its iPhone SoCs along with the CPU and GPU, which means the company needs to order external modems. Those modems have historically been provided by Qualcomm, but according to a report from Bloomberg, Intel is officially being tapped as a second source of modems for the next iPhone.

The report indicates that iPhones sold on the Verizon network and in China will continue to use Qualcomm modems—it's unclear what this means for carrier-unlocked iPhones in the US, which can be used on any major...

Must-have apps for the iPad road warrior

Taking your iPad Pro and iPhone out on the road? These apps can help you get some serious work done without a computer. Whether you’re on a business trip and forced to connect to random Wi-Fi networks, or you’re spending the day at a local coffee shop for a change of scenery, you can remain productive while keeping your data safe and secure.

Protect your data

Something we hardly think about when we’re at home or in the office is someone snooping on our Wi-Fi traffic, looking for bits and pieces of personal information as we go about our daily tasks.

But when you’re using public Wi-Fi networks, you should constantly think about just that scenario. You’ve probably used one without even thinking twice about it—I know I used to all the time. But recently, I’ve started to use VPN apps when I’m not home, in an effort to protect my personal data.

Intel XMM 7360 LTE Modem

Intel, which has been suffering lately due to its lack of focus on the mobile market and its dependence on the declining PC market, just got a boost today with a report from Bloomberg stating that the AT&T and general GSM versions of the upcoming iPhone 7 will use Intel LTE modems rather than the Qualcomm units used in the existing handsets.

The Verizon version of the iPhone 7 will reportedly continue using the Qualcomm modems, as well as handsets that are sold in China. 

The report supports earlier information from Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopft that the company expected that a major client would move to another supplier for some of its modem requirements, and also follows repeated rumors that Intel would supply as much as 50 percent of Apple's iPhone modem needs. Apple also reportedly sent...

If this report is true, it’s a huge win for Intel. The company’s chip has been passed over for every major smartphone release. Being selected by Apple would go a long way to legitimizing the Intel’s mobile efforts, and would also line the company coffers quite nicely—according to Bloomberg, AT&T is expected to sell 22 million iPhones in 2016 and 23 million in 2017.

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

As a culture, we can’t help but love the 1980s. Blame it on the kids of that era growing up and creating so much of today’s entertainment, or maybe we just have a sudden appreciation for garish colors and synth-pop, but the influence of that decade’s entertainment just isn’t fading. And Neon Drive might be its biggest fan, at least when it comes to iPhone games.

Report: Apple to announce iMessage for Android at...

Apple may be ready to pop the Green Bubble.

A report from MacDailyNews suggests that Apple will unveil an iMessage app for Android at WWDC.  The site references a “a source familiar with the company’s thinking,” though cautions the timing is in flux and an announcement could actually come later.

Such a move is less the shocker now than it might have been in the past, given that Apple has three official apps in Google Play: Apple Music, Beats Pill, and Move to iOS (of course the latter is designed to get you off Android).

This could be really interesting.

Designer Martin Hajek has rendered a graphical simulation of a MacBook Pro incorporating an OLED touchbar, something that’s been rumored for the next-gen MacBook Pro, which has been anticipated for release later this year.

The concept shows what such an OLED system could look like in a current MacBook Pro and is pretty damn impressive.

Last month, industry mogul and KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities issued a note stating that the next-gen MacBook Pro might trade some of its function keys for a single OLED touch panel. This has been speculation, but Hajek’s renderings show how this might be pulled off and how various system functions could be controlled via this interface.

The new standard is also said to offer significantly wider support for smart home devices and enhanced Internet of Things (IoT) functionality, in addition to increased support for location-based connectionless services, such as assistive navigation beacons.

Opinion: Could Apple adopt Amazon’s Scout model to...

Novelists and app developers have a lot in common. An author puts a lot of work into writing a novel, but when it’s finally published it’s competing with millions of other books out there. Unless you’re a big-name writer, most people will never even get to know that yours exists.

You can try to be creative with your marketing. For example, I did a Kickstarter campaign for my first novel, 11/9, and included the opening scene of The Billion Dollar Heist at the end of it to drive sales through to that. But it’s impossible to compete with the big publishing houses.

The same is true of small-time app developers. Your app may be the greatest in the world, but it steps out into a world that already has around 1.5 million iOS apps and where nobody has ever heard of yours. And with Apple now allowing successful companies to buy even more App Store visibility through...

Twitter confirmed on Friday that it was notifying users whose valid login credentials were recently being passed around on the so-called ‘dark web.’ The account credential leak became public after LeakedSource published the collection on Wednesday. LeakedSource maintains a database of nearly two billion online account credential leaks.

Twitter said in a blog post that it had obtained the leaked data, and matched it against their records. As a result it identified “a number of Twitter accounts” for “extra protection.” Affected accounts have been locked and their passwords must be reset by the account holder. “If your Twitter information...

MacDailyNews reports Apple will announce iMessage for Android at Monday's Worldwide Developer Conference keynote event, reports MacDailyNews, citing unnamed “sources.” Currently, the instant messenger service is only available for iOS and OS X devices. 

iMessage lets you send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages over Wi-Fi, mobile phone Internet access, or other forms of Internet access to other iOS or OS X. It offers an alternative to standard SMS/MMS messaging.

Apple is increasingly focused on services which means opening up certain avenues beyond its own iOS and OS X platforms, according to MacDailyMews. For example, Apple has added person-to-person Apple Pay payments via Messages andreleased Apple Music for Android last November.

Woman Uses 'Hey Siri' To Call An Ambulance...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Networkworld: When Apple released the iPhone 6s, it included a great new Siri feature which enables users to activate the intelligent assistant via voice. Dubbed 'Hey Siri,' the feature is particularly convenient because the iPhone 6s' M9 motion co-processor is 'always listening' and thereby lets users use 'Hey Siri' even when the device isn't connected to a power source. Recently, Stacey Gleeson of Australia used the 'Hey Siri' feature to successfully call an ambulance while she was tending to her daughter Giana who had stopped breathing. "I picked her up and sat down with her on the floor," Gleeson said in an interview. "And as I checked her airways, I looked over and remembered my phone." Thinking quick on her feet, Gleeson said, "Hey Siri, call the ambulance." Fortunately, Gleeson managed to resuscitate her daughter while the ambulance was in route. And while it's impossible to know for sure, it's entirely possible that the time Gleeson...

According to the Japanese website Mac Otakara —as noted by AppleInsider — a Chinese supplier says the upcoming iPhone 7 will be available in dark blue, silver, gold and rose gold options. 

The article also says it’s "highly likely" that the space grey option will be no more. Finally, Mac Otakara says the iPhone 7 will use the same LCD glass as Apple’s current smartphones. 

Chances that this rumor is true (IMHO): 50%. I can see Apple adding a dark blue color, but I don’t think the company will ditch the popular space grey hue.

Landfill gas utilization traps the methane gas given off from landfill sites and either converts it into pipeline-grade gas or uses it to generate electricity. It’s doubly environmentally friendly, generating power from waste but also preventing the release of methane – a greenhouse gas – into the atmosphere …

External Link: Big Changes Coming to the App Store

Apple has informed select journalists of major changes coming to the App Store. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber summarized the changes as: shorter app review times, subscription-based pricing for all apps, and better app discovery. To make apps easier to find, Apple is promising a smarter Featured tab that omits installed apps, the return of the Categories tab, and paid search ads. Some of these changes may prove controversial, but it’s good to see Apple at least making an effort to improve the App Store experience. No mention was made of demo versions or paid upgrades for non-subscription apps, but since the new app subscriptions will have trial periods, it’s possible that Apple thinks the upcoming changes will suffice.

iPhone 7 to come in blue? Space Gray to be cast off...

According to Macotakara, Apple has plans to cut out the Space Gray version of the iPhone 7 this time around and replace it with a deep blue iPhone color. From my point of view, Apple has played so fast and loose with the term “space gray” that this deep blue might be an evolution of the color.

no antenna bands!

Seriously though. Apple has a blue iPod Touch (remember those things #TBT) which could serve as a base point for a deep blue iPhone but in reality I’m not putting a lot of hope in this one becoming real.
