CES 2015: Olloclip debuts 2X telephoto lens + CPL...

Having released an updated iPhone 6/6 Plus version of its popular 4-in-1 Lens late last year, Olloclip arrived at the 2015 CES with two important new items to show: a new iPhone 6/6 Plus version of its previously excellent Telephoto and Circular Polarizing Lens for iPhone 5/5s, and completely redesigned versions of its lens accessory-compatible cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Separately, Seek Thermal – maker of the $200 Seek Thermal Camera reviewed on 9to5Mac last month – has just shown a second version of the temperature-sensitive camera that’s set to be released in the next few months. Currently unpriced but planned to...

OtterBox unveils durable, 2600mAh Resurgence power...

OtterBox has today revealed its Resurgence power case for the iPhone 6 at CES 2015. The company made its first foray into the iPhone power case market with the Resurgence for iPhone 5/5s, so it only seems fitting for the company to continue iterating on the case. OtterBox touts that the Resurgence for iPhone 6 doubles the battery life of the smartphone, while also offering military grade drop protection.

The Resurgence case packs 2600mAh of battery power and utilizes an auto-stop functionality that automatically turns off the case once the device has reached a full charge. The case is made up of a polycarbonate material that improves impact resistance and makes the device better protected for drops...

CES 2015: Avi-on shows sub-$60, next-gen smart home...

How often is merely showing up with a working lightbulb enough to attract a crowd? At a dimly-lit event held tonight by the Bluetooth SIG ahead of the 2015 CES, Avi-on demonstrated such modest magic using an early implementation of Bluetooth mesh wireless connectivity.

The company’s upcoming Bluetooth light switches ($30-$35), light dimmers ($40), and lightbulbs ($20) will be the backbone of an upcoming home lighting system from General Electric, and promise to eliminate the need for in-wall light switch wiring.

Xsan 4 - Volumes not appearing in Server app after...

Forums: TroubleshootingTags: Xsan 4

I'm running Xsan 4 and here is my issue. I've been having issues with my open directory settings in that I was unable to make any changes, I believe something became corrupted in some way. In any case, failover to my backup MDC was not working properly and I could not successfully add new profiles to clients as it would not authenticate. I had to destroy and recreate my open directory config on my primary MDC (I did archive everything). When I turned Xsan back on in Server app, the SAN volume mounted on the primary MDC, but the all of the data in the Server app is blank. It shows the connection as active, but shows that no volumes are configured, and also shows no servers.

So, the volume mounted on the primary MDC and it mounts...

CES 2015: iHome debuts HomeKit SmartPlugs, Flask...

Every year, top-ranked Apple speaker maker iHome comes to CES with an impressive array of new products — including something to show off Apple’s latest technology — and it isn’t disappointing at the 2015 CES. In an advance briefing before the show officially opened, iHome revealed its first Apple HomeKit product, SmartPlug ($40), as well as some daring new speaker and headphone designs…

…like the first speaker we’ve seen hidden inside a beautiful drinking flask. It’s called Flask, and comes in coat pocket- ($50) and home bar-sized ($100) versions. Even the smaller version sounds really good given its size, and the flask cap twists to adjust the volume. All that’s missing is the ability to actually hold fluids. Read on for more.

Today at the Consumer Electronic Show, the satellite TV company Dish announced the next step in that direction. Sling TV is a service that lets you watch cable TV channels over the internet.

Crucially, the Sling TV lineup includes ESPN, the nation’s most popular cable channel and a must-have for sports fans. And unlike some other streaming services, you can sign up for it without getting a conventional cable subscription.

Volkswagen confirms plans to launch CarPlay support...

Volkswagen, at CES 2015, has finally announced what it plans to do with both CarPlay and Android Auto. The German auto manufacturer has confirmed that it will begin shipping cars with CarPlay capabilities later this year in its 2016 models. We reported back July of last year that Volkswagen and Apple were in talks to bring CarPlay to VW’s 2016 models.

CarPlay will run on Volkswagen’s MIB II dash electronics in the United States and Europe. Volkswagen will also make its MirrorLink software available later this year. Android Auto and CarPlay support will be launched under the company’s App-Connect label.

Advertisers to get a glimpse of Apple Watch promise...

Reuters:

At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, mobile-marketing firm TapSense plans to release an Apple Watch ad-buying service. The service will provide a first glimpse of how businesses can serve up ads on the watch, even though the gadget will not be available until later this year.

At issue: the same qualities that render the watch exciting to Madison Avenue, such as the ability to detect customers approaching a store and to zap an ad directly to their wrists, also risk alienating those customers.

Before any one panics and screams about ads on the Apple Watch (oh, too late – they already are), keep in mind this is a “service” being offered to developers to include in their apps and there is no indication that Apple will allow such functionality. And, even if Apple does, I can promise you it will be an entirely opt-in process. Apple is not going to allow developers to push ads at you without your permission.

Report: Apple will start selling unlocked iPhone 6...

Now might be the time to consider upgrading your iPhone, if you haven’t already. According to 9to5Mac, Apple will begin selling SIM-free, fully unlocked versions of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the U.S. on January 6. They should be available in both Apple’s brick-and-mortar retail stores and online store.

Why this matters: Currently, Apple requires you to buy the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus alongside a contract with your carrier—or unlocked and unsubsidized if you’re with T-Mobile. Making the iPhone available without a SIM card means that customers can use the phone with any carrier around the world, or switch carriers at any time without having to worry about compatibility.

Apple schedules Q1 2015 earnings call livestream for...

Apple has just announced its fiscal Q1 2015 earnings call will take place on January 27 to report earnings for the three months ending in December of last year.

As always, Apple will be hosting a conference call with investors and press and will also live stream audio from the call on its website.

Last quarter, at its Q4 2014 earnings call, Apple announced revenue of $42.1b with sales of 39m iPhones, 12.3m iPads, and 5.5m Macs. At the time, Apple provided  guidance between $63.5 billion and $66.5 billion for its upcoming Q1FY15 quarter.

Year-over-year, Apple will be looking to beat its Q1 2014 report that included $57.6b in revenue on sales of 51m iPhones, 26m iPads, 4.8m Macs, and 6m iPods. As is the case every year, quarter to quarter the company...

Being original

Om Malik:

How to find originality in a “networked society” is on my mind, because I have recently come across three individuals who have been original for such a long time. During a conversation for my new art project, Pi.co, Frank Clegg, a US-based bag maker put it best when he said, “If I make something different, then I don’t really have any competition. Either people like what I do, or they don’t like what I do.” Such a simple statement, but so hard to implement, because many find such comfort from hiding in the herd.

This is exactly how I see Apple. They make products that we don’t always know we need—people are going to like them or they won’t. Either way, it’s going to be different.

mrspoonsi writes Respected developer Marco Arment is worried about Apple's future. In a blog post, he writes, "Apple's hardware today is amazing — it has never been better. But the software quality has taken such a nosedive in the last few years that I'm deeply concerned for its future." Arment was CTO at Tumblr, before he left to start Instapaper. "Apple has completely lost the functional high ground," says Arment. "'It just works' was never completely true, but I don't think the list of qualifiers and asterisks has ever been longer." He blames Apple prioritizing marketing for the problems with Apple's software. Apple wants to have new software releases each year as a marketing hook, but the annual cycles of updating Apple's software are leading to too many bugs and problems, he says: I suspect the rapid decline of Apple's software is a sign that marketing has a bit too much power at Apple today: the marketing priority of having major new releases every year is clearly impossible...

As great as Thunderbolt is, there are vulnerabilities to consider.

Per 9to5Mac, a security researcher speaking at the Chaos Computer Congress in Hamburg demonstrated a hack that rewrites an Intel Mac’s firmware using a Thunderbolt device with attack code in an option ROM. Known as Thunderstrike, the proof of concept presented by Trammel Hudson infects the Apple Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) in a way he claims cannot be detected, nor removed by reinstalling OS X.

Since the boot ROM is independent of the operating system, reinstallation of OS X will not remove it. Nor does it depend on anything stored on the disk, so replacing the hard drive has no effect. A hardware in-system-programming device is the only way to restore the stock firmware.

Apple has already...

Apple is now so focused on marketing-driven goals that its software quality has “taken a nosedive” in the last few years, argues a blog post by Instapaper creator and former Tumblr lead developer Marco Arment.

[OS X is] riddled with embarrassing bugs and fundamental regressions [and] I fear that Apple’s leadership doesn’t realize quite how badly and deeply their software flaws have damaged their reputation

People are sticking with OS X not because they love it, he suggests, but because Windows is worse and desktop Linux is too much hassle.

The issue, believes Arment, is that Apple is so focused on releasing a major new version of OS X each year that it is making it impossible for engineering teams to maintain quality.

NVIDIA sets the bar high for Apple’s A9 chip as...

NVIDIA has thrown down the gauntlet to Apple in the mobile chip power stakes. While the A8X chip used in the iPad Air 2 has so far blown away the competition, NVIDIA has shown off benchmarks indicating that its new mobile superchip, the Tegra X1, leaves it standing.

The benchmark data shared with SlashGear were heavier on graphics than hard data, but appear to show that the chip significantly outperforms the A8X, with NVIDIA saying that it will offer “silky-smooth 60fps 4K video.” The one number the company did share is that when throttled back to match the GPU performance of the Apple chip, power efficiency was 1.7 times better.

It should be noted that NVIDIA is comparing actual A8X performance in the iPad Air 2 with its...

Belkin has announced four new products for its WeMo home automation range, with a focus on home security. You won’t be able to get your hands on them for a while, though: they aren’t set to go on sale until the second half of the year.

All four new products are sensors, capable of sending alerts to the WeMo app and triggering other WeMo devices such as switches, plug sockets and lightbulbs … 

The four new devices are:

  • Door/window magnetic sensor, triggered on opening
  • Room motion sensor, a more sophisticated version of the existing movement sensor
  • Alarm sensor, which monitors dumb alarm devices like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Keychain sensor, designed to alert you when your kids leave or ...

Review: Ultimate Ears’ larger Megaboom 360-degree...

At CES today, Logitech subsidiary Ultimate Ears (UE) announced its Megaboom Bluetooth speaker.  Yes, it is a bigger, louder version of the popular UE Booms. That means it comes with apps that do things like equalize, set alarms and pair to stereo, with new features added all the time. The Megaboom also shares the 100-foot Bluetooth range and ability to pair with up to 8 devices with its smaller sibling.

But the bigger and louder sound of the Megaboom also comes with some nice extras not found in the other models. Megabooms are waterproof like crazy (IPX7). Bring it into the shower. Knock it in the pool (the shallow end, anyway). NBD. The MegaBoom also has a whopping 20-hour battery life but still charges via MicroUSB. Smart.

The cost: $299 is a significant $100 premium over the...

Withings debuts Activité Pop smartwatch, brings an...

Withings announced its new Activité Pop smartwatch today during CES. While the original model will set you back $450, the new “Pop” version will only cost you $150. For that much lower price you’ll gain the same fitness-tracking functionality of the original, including compatibility with the Health Mate mobile app. Oh, and an eight-month battery.

A secondary hand on the face of the watch provides a simple way to quickly check how much of your daily exercise routine you’ve completed. The Activité Pop can measure many activities, from running to swimming, and even monitor your sleep cycle. It even has a silent, vibration-based alarm to help you wake up.

On top of all of this, you’ll also be able to get the Pop in three new colors:...

Griffin debuts iTrip Aux Bluetooth, updated Twenty...

Griffin unveiled a series of new accessories for mobile devices today during the Consumer Electronics Show. The first of these accessories is the iTrip Aux Bluetooth, which combines a standard 3.5mm audio cable with a Bluetooth reciever powered by the cigarette lighter in your car, allowing you to stream your music wirelessly to your car’s stereo, even if you don’t have a Bluetooth equipped car.

The iTrip Aux AutoPilot, a sister device, works using a Lightning cable to charge your iOS device while using the data connection to access your music library, which is then played through the same 3.5mm jack as the Bluetooth model.

Both accessories retail for $49.99 and are available from Griffin’s website starting today.

Parrot introduces CarPlay-powered RNB6 infotainment...

Parrot today introduced its new infotainment system, currently known only by its model number, “RNB6,” that features a 7-inch 720p display. The system runs on a custom build of Android, but has full support for the iPhone’s CarPlay feature, allowing control of your cell phone’s key functions through your dashboard.

Even without a phone connected, the system offers onboard navigation (integrated with the dashcam), phone call capability (presumably over Bluetooth unless connected via CarPlay or Android Auto), vehicle diagnostics, music and climate control, and more.

The usual Parrot audio features are also included, such as the ability to customize the system’s audio playback to provide optimal sound for the number of passengers and their locations in the car.

Apple has lost the functional high ground

Marco Arment:

Apple has completely lost the functional high ground. “It just works” was never completely true, but I don’t think the list of qualifiers and asterisks has ever been longer. We now need to treat Apple’s OS and application releases with the same extreme skepticism and trepidation that conservative Windows IT departments employ.

I hate agreeing with Arment but sometimes, he’s bang on. I believe in this case he is. From embarrassing software updates to apps that simply don’t work properly or well – Apple’s poor quality and functionality of the Mail.app being just one of many examples – the assessment that “We don’t need major OS releases every year” is something many of us hope Apple listens and pays attention to.

Review: Incipio’s offGRID Express is the most...

If I had to choose one word to describe how Incipio’s past iPhone offGRID battery cases felt, it would probably be “svelte,” as they were all impressively thin and gently curved. Starting today, Incipio is shipping its first offGRID case for the iPhone 6, and it notably trades “svelte” for “edgy” design. Offered only in matte black, it’s called offGRID Express ($80), and Incipio claims it’s the first Apple-certified iPhone 6 battery case that’s actually available for consumers to purchase. This time, the back is somewhat angular, due in part to a larger battery pack than prior models, and the sides are equipped with the fancy metallic button protectors rival Mophie has only offered in its most expensive Juice Packs.

Incipio’s message is clear:...

The render is rather boring, but an additional row of speaker holes — shown on the top side of the device — is visible. This supports the rumor that the larger iPad, commonly dubbed ‘iPad...

Must-have gadgets you don’t need will glimmer at the...

Bloomberg:

CES, the world’s largest trade show, is far from a hit-making machine. While the technology show is a leading indicator of trends and attracted 160,000 attendees last year, many products debuting at the event take years to get into consumers’ living rooms — if at all. The last time the event had a true stand-alone sensation was when Microsoft debuted the Xbox game console at CES in 2001.

I’ve been to several CES shows and they are a huge, hectic mess. Everyone in the tech media knows “the real show” is the behind the scenes deals made largely in private and in secret. But that isn’t sexy so the media hypes ridiculous products and their own presence at the show as if it actually means something to average consumers. It’s a shame to the show and a disservice to their readers when the media won’t be honest and objective in their assessment of what CES offers.

Thanks to my friend...

Apple now says Watch ‘coming early 2015′ for several...

 

Update: Apple has reverted all of these changes listed below. Aside from the US site, the respective pages for all other regions now say that Apple Watch will be ‘Available in 2015′ again. The change to early 2015 seems to have been a mistake.

Apple’s online pages for Apple Watch have today been updated with a slightly narrower timeframe for several European countries. Previously, whilst the US site stated ‘Coming Early 2015′, localized pages in the UK and other regions were less concrete, simply stating that Apple Watch would be ‘Available in 2015′.

This has now changed for several European countries, including the UK, France, Spain, Germany and Italy. Leave a note in the comments if you catch any more affected countries. The change means that these region-specific pages now mirror the US pages (after...

Editorial: Will Apple Watch begin as a monster...

…Time will tell…

As we begin 2015 — the year Apple has promised to release the Apple Watch it showed last September — there’s a somewhat comical debate underway in the media: how big of a success will the Watch actually be?

Although I’m not personally planning to buy an Apple Watch, three decades of using Apple products and over a decade of reviewing them have taught me that Apple now has only three types of launches: gigantic hits, hits, and near-hits. And those phrases are all relative.

Two of Apple’s “least popular” product families, the Apple TV and iPod, have sold in quantities most companies would kill for. These are devices that haven’t been meaningfully updated in several years, and many people have called the iPod “dead,” despite sales of 14 million units in the past year. Even as a semi-successful “hobby,” the Apple TV reached around 10 million customers in the last year, a larger group of users than the typical company can achieve...

2015 is the year of the Apple Watch

Dan Frommer:

From Apple’s financial followers to the culture pages, expect few technology topics to garner as much attention in 2015 as the Apple Watch, which is set to launch “early” in the year.

Why? Because it’s not just a new gadget. Several people, companies, and entire industries are counting on it to be a hit. Without hyperbole, the Apple Watch has the potential to create new billionaires and to change the way people live.

Here are a few reasons—from micro to macro—the Apple Watch is shaping up to be the launch of 2015.

I don’t know about “Year of the Apple Watch” but I do believe it will eventually be a hugely successful category for Apple, much like the “slow burn” of the iPod.

In a recent development, Alpine has announced that it will be debuting its 2015 product lineup at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The lineup will also feature the iLX-007, the first in-dash product dedicated to Apple’s CarPlay technology.

Other new products will feature new applications for the 9” truck and SUV AVN systems including Dodge Ram, Toyota Tundra and Jeep Wrangler and Rear-Seat Entertainment system with direct HDMI input to allow streaming video from a connected smart phone or tablet.

If you’ve had a chance to play with Alpine’s recent product lineup or know of a good vehicle-based audio system that hooks into iOS’ features, please let us know in the comments.
