The Interesting Dell + EMC Stories You Haven't...


I spent last week at EMC World talking to customers and both Dell and EMC employees, on the lookout for interesting stories that others hadn't picked up. I got a bunch that I think are fascinating -- stories about women in technology, billions of dollars of currently untapped revenue, and why every EMC and Dell sales rep effectively will have a dartboard with Meg Whitman's picture on it. One difference between Dell and EMC is that EMC is a typical male-driven, male-dominated firm where engineers are king. At Dell, Michael Dell personally has made it his mission to get more women into technology.

Microsoft Hits $1 Trillion In Total Cumulative...

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft has hit a major milestone: $1 trillion in all-time cumulative revenue. The finding was first spotted by Jeff Reifman, a tech consultant. According to him, Microsoft hit the milestone in its last quarter. Interestingly, Apple also hit $1 trillion in revenue in 2015. As for profits, Microsoft currently leads the chart with $265.2 billion with Apple trying to close in with $261.6 billion. "You might expect a company to announce a milestone like this and bask in this incredible accomplishment -- but not Microsoft," writes Reifman. "It chose to stay silent as it faces increased public scrutiny for holding $108.3 billion in earnings offshore (an incredible 41% of its all-time profit) and its history of tax dodging at home in Washington State."Microsoft blog MSPowerUser says it independently verified the numbers. According to which, Microsoft's total cumulative revenue as of last earnings call is 1001.569 billion.

Apple HomeKit may get an official controller app in...

With iOS 10, HomeKit users might not have to go hunting for third-party control apps anymore.

That’s because Apple is reportedly making a centralized HomeKit app of its own. This will allow users to manage their connected lights, locks, thermostats, and more through a single iPhone or iPad app, designed by Apple.

Under the current HomeKit system, users must download separate apps for all of the smart home devices they’ve installed. Each of these apps includes a HomeKit setup interface for creating rooms, scenes, and triggers, but features can vary from one app to the next, and users still have to bounce between different apps to control their devices manually.

Siri made the iPhone more responsive with artificial intelligence, but now its founders want to put AI in every device you own. Dag Kittlaus, who cofounded Siri, left Apple five years ago, but now he’s back with a new voice assistant named Viv that he predicts will change the way we interact with not just our phones, but our home appliances, cars, and more. Viv has gotten a lot of hype for a product that hasn’t shipped yet, but Kittlaus demoed Viv publicly for the first time at TechCrunch Disrupt on Monday.

As noted by AppleInsider, folks shopping on Apple's Canadian iTunes storefront can now donate to relief for victims of the forest fires in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

The company is accepting donations to the Canadian Red Cross in $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments. Apple doesn’t take a cut of the proceeds.

The wildfire continues to burn in the Fort McMurray area and NASA satellites continue to image the area. Fire conditions remain extreme in the province due to low humidity, high temperatures and wind according to the emergency updates being released by the Government of Alberta. 

More than 1,500 firefighters, approximately 150 helicopters, 222 pieces of heavy equipment and more than 28 air tankers are fighting the fires across the province. The fires have burned for several days and forced...

Creators Of Siri Demo Their Next AI Assistant Viv,...

A small company called Viv on Monday unveiled a "frictionless", artificially intelligent software also called Viv, which understands complicated human queries and connects with other apps to get your work done more conveniently and efficiently. Viv was demonstrated live at TechCrunch's Disrupt NY conference on Monday. Dag Kittlaus, co-founder of Viv, and creator of Siri, said that the idea behind it is to open the app to all developers so that they could leverage their technology. (Interestingly, under the realm of Apple, Siri, five years since first launched, is still not open for developers.) Ben Popper, reports for The Verge: The major difference between Siri and Viv is that the latter is a far more open platform. One of the biggest frustrations with Siri is that it has only a small number of tasks it can complete. For the vast multitude of requests or queries, Siri will default to a generic web search. Viv's approach is much closer to Amazon's Alexa or Facebook's Messenger bots...

Rumor: iOS 10 might include a built-in HomeKit app

Of all of the crazy and sometimes impressively cool rumors I've heard lately, none has made me happier than one that was floating around this morning. The rumor says that Apple will put its own HomeKit app into iOS 10, which is expected to be announced next month at WWDC 2016.

HomeKit, as you'll recall, is Apple's framework for home automation. For iOS users, automation devices that pass HomeKit certification have some very nice advantages -- easier setup, grouping by area or full home, creation of actions (for example, "I'm going to bed" turns off all lights and locks doors), and the ability to use Siri voice commands to perform all the actions. But there has been one fly in the home automation ointment: right now, every device includes its own app and although devices from one manufacturer should work on another's app, it's not always that simple.

An official Apple HomeKit app would be a big plus to...

Rumor: iPhone 7 to feature same length, width as...

The overall iPhone 7 shape and size may just be identical to that found in the iPhone 6s.

A purported sketch obtained by nowhereelse.fr points towards the next-generation smartphone having the same length and width as the iPhone 6s.

The drawing, which has yet to be verified, shows the iPhone 7 has the same 138.3mm (5.44 inches) length and 6.71mm (2.64 inches) width as the iPhone 6s, but the depth of the new smartphone is not listed for comparison.

The sketch also depicts a larger and slightly convex camera housing, suggesting that the iPhone 7 could possibly have a larger sensor and a nearly flush camera cutout.

To date, there have been conflicting rumors as to whether the next-gen iPhone will include a 3.5mm headphone jack, Smart Connector and dual-lens...

T-Mobile to begin roaming, other services in Cuba...

This is sort of nifty.

T-Mobile on Monday announced a deal with Cuban carrier Empresa De Telecomunicaciones De Cuba, S.A. (ETECSA) that will see its customers get access to voice, text and data while traveling to Cuba as well as lower rates on calls to landlines and wireless phones in the country from the US.

As of now, roughly 36.6% of Cuban-born wireless customers subscribe with T-Mobile.

Through the collaboration, customers will be able to make calls for $0.60 per minute from the US to landlines and wireless phones in Cuba via the carrier’s $15/month “Stateside International Talk” plan.

The announcement comes after a similar one by Sprint in November and both follow recent changes to US-Cuban relations implemented by the US government that allow US companies to do...

Take Control of Slack Basics: Chapter 10, Manage...

Perhaps the most compelling feature of Slack as a messaging platform is its support for integrations, which make it possible to have all your external Internet services report on their activities to Slack. And then there’s Slackbot, an automated team member that welcomes new team members, reminds you of upcoming events, and alerts you when someone mentions you in a channel you don’t follow. Bots and integrations are a big deal in Slack, and this chapter of “Take Control of Slack Basics” explains what you need to know.

Mobile device users installed nearly 156 billion mobile applications worldwide in 2015, generating $34.2 billion in direct (non-advertising) revenue. A new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that these figures will grow to more than 210 billion installs and nearly $57 billion in direct revenue in 2020.

Apple's App Store "ecosystem" captured nearly 58% of global direct app revenue in 2015, an increase of 36% year-over-year. Meanwhile, Apple's share of global app install volume was 15%, down nearly 8% year-over-year. 

The sheer volume of Android-based devices in use ensures a greater overall number of installs through Google Play, which captured about 60% of install volume and nearly 36% of direct revenue in 2015, according to...

Canalys: Apple still number one PC maker as market...

Worldwide shipments of PCs — as in personal computer, not just Windows systems — totaled 101 million units in quarter one (Q1) of 2016, as total volumes dipped by 13% year-on-year to their lowest point since Q2 2011, according to Canalys.

Apple continued to lead the market into the first quarter of 2016 with shipments of just over 14 million units of Macs and iPads, despite falling 17%. The Cupertino, California-Based company is the top PC maker because Canalys includes desktops, notebooks, two-in-ones AND tablets in their tallies. Most research groups don't include tablets like the iPad in their calculations of personal computer marketshare.

“The global PC market had a bad start to 2016 and it is difficult to see any bright spots for vendors in the coming quarters. The tablet boom has faded in the distance and the market is fully mature,” says Tim Coulling, Canalys senior analyst. “Global shipments declines are...

External Link: Marco Arment to Podcasters: “Be...

Podcast-client developer and podcaster Marco Arment has penned a response to the New York Times article about Apple’s tepid support for podcasting, warning podcasters to be careful what they wish for. Arment calls the New York Times article “ill-informed” and cautions that many of the suggestions therein could damage the podcasting medium. He warns that providing the listener data that some large podcasters want could make podcasting as intrusive and annoying as the Web, and he says that giving Apple more power over shows and revenue would have negative consequences. “It would not only add rules, restrictions, delays, and big commissions, but it would increase Apple’s dominant role in podcasts, push out diversity, give Apple far more control than before, and potentially destroy one of the Web’s last open media ecosystems.”

External Link: Apple at a Crossroads with Podcasting

More than a decade after Apple officially started supporting podcasts in iTunes, they are booming in popularity. In that time, however, little about how Apple manages the popular iTunes podcast directory has changed, which has some podcasters concerned. The New York Times reports that complaints include having to woo a single Apple employee in charge of promoting podcasts, not receiving enough listener data, and the difficulty of sharing podcast episodes to social media. As Google and Spotify add podcasts to their music subscription services, providing extra perks for podcasters, Apple may be considering changes, based in part on talks held with leading podcasters in a Cupertino meeting in April.

At last: an iPad Pro case with storage for an Apple...

Correct me if I’m wrong (and, dear reader, I know you’ll be glad to do so), but I think STM’s $59.95 dux is the first iPad Pro case that provides storage for the Apple Pencil via a fitted channel. This feature alone gets the case a big thumbs-up from Yours Truly.

After all, if you’ve paid 100 bucks for the (don’t-call-it-a) stylus, it would be convenient to have it handy at all times. Before the dux, I carried my Apple Pencil in a small, separate case along with my earbuds. Now the pencil is safely attached to the case that protects my iPad Pro and is easily, always accessible. (If only the dux had a pocket for my earbuds, I’d really be happy.)

Speaking of protection, the folks at STM say the case has been drop tested to meet the U.S. Military Spec 810G durability tests. Its protective polycarbonate and rubberized TPU bracket are designed to keep your Apple tablet safe...

Ubiquiti Networks, best known for building enterprise- and service-provider networking solutions, announced today it's formed a new division, Ubiquiti Labs, to research and develop consumer electronics devices. Ubiquiti Labs’ first product—dubbed AmpliFi—will be a $199 802.11ac router that will come with two pre-paired range extenders in the box when it ships this summer.

The company plans to offer two higher-end models as well. In a briefing last week, Ubiquiti Labs’ VP of Business Development Keenan Lewis told me “AmpliFi is our solution to the chronic Wi-Fi problems of the modern connected home. And homes are becoming ever more connected. A family of four can easily have 15 to 20 connected devices when you consider smartphones, tablets, and connected appliances. Consumers are looking for something more powerful than what’s been available.”

For the last few months I’ve been using my Apple EarPods for nearly every application that requires in-ear audio. I use my EarPods for monitoring while recording voiceovers, for podcasting, and for everyday music listening.

Absurd as it is, the last pair of headphones I’d owned, a pair of Sony MDR-7506’s, ended up developing a short in the cable. I simply never got around to replacing them in a timely manner.

Audio-Technica’s ATH-M50, and the updated ATH-M50x, have received rave reviews from tech sites, bloggers and YouTubers alike. The love that these headphones receive on a regular basis convinced me that the next pair of headphones that I tried needed to be these. Do they live up to the hype? more…

Lyft Plans Self-Driving Taxi Fleet By 2017

An anonymous reader writes:
Lyft hopes to launch a self-driving fleet of taxis as soon as next year, according to reports, arriving in the market years before Apple and Google. "There will still be a human 'driver' in the cars, as mandated by law for the time being," writes BGR, adding that eventually the driver will become obsolete. "But said human will be there solely in the event of a malfunction. Otherwise, Lyft's new vehicles will drive themselves."

Meanwhile, Fortune writes that most analysts believe it will be four years before Apple gets a car on the road, though they're moving in that direction and even hired a Tesla executive last month. They add that both Apple and Google are now eyeing at least 400,000 square feet of Bay Area real estate to use in the development of their self-driving fleets.

Siri Voice Actress Doesn't Use Siri

An anonymous coward writes: Susan Bennett, the actress who provided the voice of Apple's Siri assistant, says she "doesn't really" use Siri herself. "It's too weird," she says in a new interview. While she uses many Apple products, "I'm used to hearing my voice on radio and TV commercials and that sort of thing, but to hear my own voice coming out of this little computer phone is too strange."
Bennett says she recorded every sound combination in the English language one fateful July in 2005, working five days a week, four hours a day, but didn't know it was for Siri until six years later, in 2011, when another voice actor e-mailed,"Hey, we're playing around with this new iPhone. Isn't this you?" Bennett says she was "kind of horrified, because I hadn't been told... On the other hand, I was extremely flattered."

In the interview she also says she felt "dissed" when Siri answered one of her first questions, "What are you doing," with a disgusted "I'm talking to you..."...

Apple meets with podcasters

Late last month, Apple brought seven leading podcast professionals to the company’s campus in Cupertino, Calif., to air their case to a room full of employees, according to two people who were there. The people would speak only on the condition of anonymity because they had signed nondisclosure agreements. The company made no promises, the people said, but several pressing issues for podcasters were discussed in frank terms.

Apple has problems, there’s no question about that. I hope these types of meetings will help, but we’ll see—I have my doubts.

4th Time's the Charm for Uncharted


The final chapter in Sony's PlayStation 4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief's End brings the story of treasure hunter Nathan Drake to a satisfying conclusion, suggest early reviews. The game will hit retail outlets Tuesday. The game is the final title in the series, developer Naughty Dog has said. It seems that the studio went out all to ensure that the saga ended on a high note. It is not only among the best of the Uncharted titles, but also among the best yet released exclusively for the PlayStation 4, according to reviews.

A standalone iOS app for Apple’s HomeKit platform could finally arrive in iOS 10 as a new report claims an Apple employee on the company’s marketing team revealed plans for the launch in an online review. MacRumors found the mention (pasted below) within a product review related to HomeKit and says it confirmed the person that left the comment was indeed an Apple employee.

As I work in marketing for Apple, we test many Smart Home devices, especially for iOS HomeKit integration. […]

Some advice, there are many third party applications, most free, that offer more control and customization(s) with many Smart Home devices. “Yonomi” is a free app that I often use, “Home” is another which cost $14.99. Both offer support for many devices with more added daily (including Amazon “Echo”). The next version of iOS due this fall will have a...

Infinisys' Screen Studio for Mac OS X (10.6 or higher) is a solid tool for creating your own screen savers. My big concern regarding the app is that it hasn't been updated in two years. Will the next major Mac OS X update "break" it?

In fact, your Mac doesn't recognize it as an approved app. This means you'll have to go to your Security & Privacy preferences in the Mac OS X Settings app and select "Anywhere" from the "allow apps to be downloaded from" item. This, as Apple warns you, makes your Mac less secure. If that doesn't bother you, then download away.

Screen Studio lets you easily create professional looking screen savers for the Mac. Screen Studio comes with a large amount of clip art, including popular characters from After Dark, such as the Flying Toaster, Bad Dog, Boris and fish from the popular Fish module. It also comes with sound files, which facilitates the...

On the Roadie again with the Executive Backpack

If you're a road warrior who packs both a laptop and an iPad, Tenba's Roadie Executive Backpack should suit your traveling needs. It's great for photographers, filmmakers and anyone who hits the road with LOTS of tech gadgets.

The cascading sections nest together when zipped shut, so the bag always maintains a slim profile.

Streaming Surpasses CD Sales At Warner Music

An anonymous reader writes: The times are a changin'. "Warner Music Group has become the first major record company to report that streaming has become its largest source of revenue, surpassing sales of physical formats such as CDs and vinyl," reports Financial Times. Last year, Warner's streaming revenue surpassed its sales for downloads. It goes to show just how much of an impact streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music are having on the music industry. Warner is the third-largest record company and has embraced streaming more quickly than the rest of the industry. "This rapid transformation is evidence of our ability to sign, develop and market artists that thrive in the streaming world," said Stephen Cooper, Warner's chief executive. The company reports that total recorded music revenue grew 10 percent to $610 million in the first three months of the year. Overall digital revenue increased 20 percent to $328 million, offsetting declines in physical formats like CDs....

The new discount is available for those attending any eligible college and university —both undergraduate and graduate students — in the United States, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The discount is good for up to four non-continous years, so if students take time off, they can also pause their Apple Music student memberships.

Notable apps and app updates for May 6, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS Apps/Updates

Talkshow

Talkshow is a new social networking app that lets you host text-based discussions with the world. Create a "show", share it to invite friends and followers, and then enjoy the direction the discussion takes. Talkshows can be shared to the web, to Facebook, and to Twitter, so others don't even need to have the app installed to participate. It's a fascinating concept, and the universal app is free.

Apple Music Connect will reportedly be downgraded in...

Creating a social networks for artists may not be Apple’s forte.

Apple’s first attempt at this was Ping in 2012, an initiative to add MySpace-like features to iTunes. It went nowhere. Now, Apple is looking to de-emphasize Connect, the social feature in Apple Music that gave artists direct access to share music and videos on the platform. 

According to 9to5Mac, Apple is expected to “demote” Connect as part of Apple Music’s upcoming iOS 10 revamp. Connect has been a main tab in Apple Music since the streaming service launched last summer, but sources are now saying that the feature will be somehow integrated into the For You tab. At the time it launched, Apple cited Connect’s social capabilities as one of the distinguishing factors between Apple Music and other music streaming services.

Aging at Home, Part 2: Some Tech to Watch Over Me


When road maps for advanced care terminate in the familiar surroundings of one's home, as opposed to assisted living facilities and hospitals, technology can be as critical and comforting as human caregiving. Neither can replace the benefits the other brings. For individuals who would like to age in place -- their home or a loved one's residence -- it's critical to factor in new and upcoming technologies when having end-game conversations. They could make the difference between aging in place or in an institution.

MailButler adds some helpful ‘power’ features to OS...

Some folks don’t like OS X Mail, saying it doesn’t have enough “power” features. I’m a regular — and satisfied — user of the Apple app, but have found that you can beef it up with MailButler, the Apple Mail assistant by Feingeist Software GmbH. It simplifies, optimizes and streamlines working with emails.

The app adds features to the mail app that I never knew I needed before. For example, MailButler allows you to schedule an email to be sent at a specific date and time. For example, you can compose birthday emails ahead of the actual date. That’s convenient and much more personal than a quick message in FaceBook. You just define the exact date when you want to send the email, and MailButler takes care of the rest.

MailButler also allows you to convert your emails into notes. This includes formatting, file attachments, tags, reminder date and other meta information. Notes contain a direct reference to the...

Apple Music ditching “Connect” tab in redesign

In the iOS 10 Apple Music redesign, the Connect feature will follow Ping’s lead and will be demoted. Apple Music Connect currently exists as its own tab across the Apple Music interface, but multiple sources say that the feature will lose its tab and become integrated into the “For You” recommendations page.

I do hope this is true. Connect is the most useless thing since Ping. However, I hope that “integrated” into For You doesn’t mean that it will be mixed in with my recommendations—that would completely ruin the For You tab for me. Just kill Connect and be done with it.

How-To: Enable Aero Snap-like window snapping on...

Yesterday, we wrote a post about hiding the menu bar, and in the corresponding video tutorial, we used window snapping to highlight one of the benefits of a hidden menu bar. Afterwards, I received several tweets and emails asking how to perform window snapping, since this is not a feature that appears natively in OS X.

Window snapping allows you to position windows in specific areas of the screen, usually by dragging the window to the edge of the screen, causing the window to “snap” into place. This feature was first popularized by Microsoft’s Aero Snap on Windows. Even though Apple doesn’t natively support it, window snapping is available on the Mac via a variety of third-party apps. more…
