Has coffee gotten too fancy

For some, it’s a staple of the American morning: a comforting routine, a good deal. Anything that costs more than $1 is needlessly expensive, a waste of money — the coffee from a deli, diner or doughnut cart is all you need to start the day. For others, the $1 cup is suspiciously cheap. Maybe it tastes bad, or its production does harm to the land and is unfair to laborers. If you have to pay more, then that is probably a reflection of a drink’s true cost.

I just want a plain cup of black coffee.

Apple updates TestFlight, its iOS app testing...

Apple has released an update to TestFlight, its free iOS app testing platform that’s part of iTunes Connect. It now provides multiple build support, enhanced group capabilities, and improved tester management—making it even easier to test your apps.

TestFlight now lets you distribute and test multiple builds at the same time, so testers can choose from a number of builds to test. What’s more, TestFlight groups have changed. 

Apple says you can now do more with them, like create groups of TestFlight users, and each group can test a different build. To get you started, Apple has added all of your existing external testers to the group “External Testers,” which you can edit at any time.

Testers can continue testing a build when it goes live on the App Store. Apple says this minimizes disruptions. iTunes Connect users can also access all active builds, letting them seamlessly compare...

Concept imagines Apple’s upcoming modular Mac Pro...

Following Apple’s pre-announcement of a new modular Mac Pro it has in the works, there has been a lot of speculation about how Apple could implement such design changes. Will it stick with a design similar to the current cylinder, aka the trash can? Or perhaps it will return to a more classic Mac tower or box design, or something new entirely, in order to accommodate the machine’s so-called “modular” design that will allow easy upgrades for key components.

Imagining the possibilities, the folks over at Curved.de put together the concept below.

According to one analyst, Apple is facing a significant bottleneck in the production of the bezel-less iPhone 8. As the device’s front is expected to be mostly screen (and almost no bezel), the Touch ID sensor is being re-engineered.

Cowen and Company’s Timothy Arcuri is claiming that yields of a new fingerprint sensor that would be integrated into the iPhone 8 screen are low (via AppleInsider) and that Apple may consider other less-exciting designs if the production problems cannot be solved.

After being met with some initial legal pushback over Spotty’s name and close resemblance to the official Spotify app, it was unclear what the future might hold for Chang’s highly-anticipated creation. Since then, the app has been visually updated and rebranded as Snowy.

But give credit to Spotify, because instead of overreacting and using the company’s significant legal resources to shut the project down, the Stockholm, Sweden-based company has agreed to collaborate with Chang to help fill in an obvious void on Apple...

Are Chromebooks Responsible For PC Market Growth?

From a report on The Verge: IDC claims the PC market is "up slightly," recording its first growth in five years. It's a tiny growth of just 0.6 percent, but it's a flattening of the market that Microsoft and its PC maker partners have been looking for after years of decline. While percentage growth looks good on paper, it doesn't always tell the whole story. Over at Gartner, another market research firm that tracks PC sales, the story is a little different. Gartner claims PC shipments declined 2.4 percent in the recent quarter. There's a good reason for the disparity between IDC and Gartner's figures, and it involves Chromebooks. IDC's data includes Chromebooks and excludes Windows tablets, even machines with a detachable keyboard like the Surface Pro. Gartner counts Windows-based tablets as PCs and excludes Chromebooks or any non-Windows-based tablets. Without IDC providing the exact split of Chromebooks sold vs. Windows- and macOS-based machines, it's impossible to know exactly...

Last year Apple patched iOS after cyber researchers from the UK demonstrated that a malicious webpage could use iPhone sensors to detect a passcode. The technique was so accurate that the team had a 100% success rate at working out 4-digit PINs within five attempts, reports Engadget.

You might think your phone’s movements are random, but they apparently create distinct patterns. During their tests, they were able to crack four-digit PINs on the first guess 70 percent of the time and 100 percent of the PINs they used by the fifth guess.

The attack vector was made possible, explained the study’s lead author Dr. Maryam Mehrnezhad, because mobile apps and websites were able to access sensor data without permission …

Qualcomm has “slammed Apple with a slew of counterclaim”s in California federal court on Monday, alleging the iPhone maker is lowballing license terms for Qualcomm’s standard essential patent technology, breaching cooperation agreements and making billions of dollars off of other companies’ innovations, reports Law360.

In January 2016, Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology.  The same month saw the Federal Trade Commission file a complaint in federal district court charging Qualcomm with using anticompetitive tactics to maintain its monopoly in the supply of a key semiconductor device used in cell phones and...

Apple drops from first to fifth place in Laptop Mag’...

In as much as you may love your Apple notebook, Apple’s wares seem to be on the decline according to Laptop Mag.

The publication, which has awarded Apple the top spot in its annual survey since 2010, placed Apple’s notebooks at fifth place alongside Acer but behind Lenovo, Asus, Dell and HP.

The magazine had the following to say about Apple’s recent products:

To pick the winners, losers and also-rans, we evaluated the 10 biggest laptop brands to determine which offer the best combination of quality products, cutting-edge innovation, helpful support, sleek designs and strong value. Because of its modest review scores, expensive products and lack of ports, Apple fell all the way down to fifth place after receiving top honors every year since the Best and Worst Brands debuted in 2010.

Apple’s lowest scoring category turned out to be ‘Value and Selection’, albeit Apple, in recent years was cited for providing a ‘good, better, best’ portfolio with a limited...

Analyst: Apple may be developing its own power...

Apple may be developing its own power management chips according to a report from German private bank Bankhaus Lampe.

The report, which was released on Tuesday, precipitated a sharp drop in the share price of Dialog Semiconductor, which functions as Apple’s current supplier.

Per analyst Karsten Iltgen:

“The teams of both companies collaborate very closely and thus, Dialog cannot be replaced by a third-party supplier. However, Apple itself could replace Dialog.”

Iltgen’s analysis cited 16 different job openings on Apple’s website for analog/power management engineers for the design center in Munich alone.

She also noted that industry sources have apparently spotted manufacturing samples for power management circuitry for Apple within the region. “The timetable seems to point to a potential application of the chips in the iPhone as of 2019,” the report said.

The rumor also reflects events transpiring in the U.K., wherein Apple seems to be...

Apple’s Clips sees over 500,000 downloads in its...

Apple’s new, free Clips app saw between 500,000 and a million downloads, according to estimates from app store analytics firm App Annie — as noted by TechCrunch. Sound good, right? Still, Clips hasn’t yet broken into the top 20 apps by ranking in the U.S. App Store’s Top Charts.

The day after its debut, Clips climbed to No. 28 in the App Store, its highest rank so far, per App Annie’s data. However, during its launch weekend, the app dropped down the charts. By Saturday, it was No. 39 in the U.S. By Sunday, 40. Today, it’s 53.

Clips allows iPhone and iPad users to create “expressive videos.” It lets you combine video clips, photos and music into videos to share with friends through the...

Enlarge / Nvidia's Pascal-based GTX 1060. (credit: Mark Walton)

Last week, when Nvidia announced its new top-end Titan Xp GPU, it also said that it would be releasing macOS drivers for the new card and the company's entire Pascal-based GPU lineup. Today, it has released version 378.05.05.05f01 of its Mac driver, a beta that will allow Macs (and sort-of Macs) to support those cards for the first time.

The driver should support all Pascal-based graphics cards under macOS Sierra, including the GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, 1080, and 1080 Ti, as well as the Titan X and Titan Xp. It also supports many older GeForce and...

Apple to open first Taiwan retail store in the...

Apple will open its first retail store in Taiwan in the Taipei 101 mall, reports Focus Taiwan, quoting an unnamed “industry insider.” There's no info on an opening date. The Apple store will be spread over 1,322 square meters on the ground floor and the first basement level of the mall in Taiwan's tallest skyscraper, the article adds.

Taipei 101 is a skyscraper in Xinyi District, Taipei. The building was officially classified as the world's tallest in 2004, and remained such until the completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2009. Taipei 101 comprises 101 floors above ground, as well as five basement levels.

With the opening of the store (and others in the works), Apple will have 494 retail stores in 22 countries (if I’ve counted correctly) and an online store available in 39 countries.

United Airlines Gives Appalling New Meaning to...


United Airlines' self-made firestorm spread on Tuesday, as a video showing a passenger being forcibly dragged off a plane continued to make the rounds on social media. The passenger had refused to comply after being told he'd been bumped off the Sunday flight. The incident sparked international outrage, including calls for a boycott of the airline and for CEO Oscar Munoz to step down. Anger has been particularly intense in China. United's share price has fallen in response to the debacle, taking more than $700 million off the company's books.

Hands-on: Powering the MacBook Pro with an eGPU...

As we reported earlier this morning, Nvidia has released its long-awaited Pascal beta drivers for the Mac. These drivers make it possible to use graphics cards from the company’s popular 10-series lineup, which include the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, among other hardware.

This release has major implications for legacy Mac Pro, Hackintosh, and eGPU users. It means that we can now use the latest Nvidia hardware to drive our machines graphically. It means taking a relatively underpowered computer like the 13-inch 2016 MacBook Pro, and running games at high settings with respectable frame rates.

We plan on testing out the beta drivers more extensively in the future, but for quick testing purposes, we decided to try powering our 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Pascal-based GTX 1050 Ti. What...

Qualcomm Says Apple Broke Contract, Hindered...

Qualcomm has filed a 139-page rebuttal of a lawsuit lodged by Apple in January in which the US chipmaker counterclaimed that the iPhone giant was "misrepresenting facts and making false statements." From a report on ArsTechnica: It alleged that Apple had "breached" and "mischaracterized" deals it had in place with Qualcomm and accused the Tim Cook-run firm of interfering with the chipmaker's "long-standing agreements" with iPhone and iPad manufacturers, such as Foxconn. In a statement, Qualcomm said, "Apple effectively chose to limit the performance of the Qualcomm-based iPhones by not taking advantage of the full potential speed of which Qualcomm's modems are capable. Apple's actions were intended to prevent consumers from realizing that iPhones containing Qualcomm chipsets performed far better than iPhones containing chipsets supplied by Intel."

Thanks to the generosity of Dwight and Franklin Shih of Colorado, I had the fun yesterday of unboxing and booting up a working 2004 12-inch PowerBook G4.

A Big Problem With AI: Even Its Creators Can't...

Last year an experimental vehicle, developed by researchers at the chip maker Nvidia was unlike anything demonstrated by Google, Tesla, or General Motors. The car didn't follow a single instruction provided by an engineer or programmer. Instead, it relied entirely on an algorithm that had taught itself to drive by watching a human do it. Getting a car to drive this way was an impressive feat. But it's also a bit unsettling, since it isn't completely clear how the car makes its decisions, argues an article on MIT Technology Review. From the article: The mysterious mind of this vehicle points to a looming issue with artificial intelligence. The car's underlying AI technology, known as deep learning, has proved very powerful at solving problems in recent years, and it has been widely deployed for tasks like image captioning, voice recognition, and language translation. There is now hope that the same techniques will be able to diagnose deadly diseases, make million-dollar trading...
