Apple Wins $120 Million From Samsung In Slide-To-...

Apple has finally claimed victory over Samsung to the count of $120 million. "The Supreme Court said today that it wouldn't hear an appeal of the patent infringement case, first decided in 2014, which has been bouncing through appeals courts in the years since," reports The Verge. From the report: The case revolved around Apple's famous slide-to-unlock patent and, among others, its less-famous quick links patent, which covered software that automatically turned information like a phone number into a tappable link. Samsung was found to have infringed both patents. The ruling was overturned almost two years later, and then reinstated once again less than a year after that. From there, Samsung appealed to the Supreme Court, which is where the case met its end today. Naturally, Samsung isn't pleased with the outcome. "Our argument was supported by many who believed that the Court should hear the case to reinstate fair standards that promote innovation and prevent abuse of the patent...

Supreme Court rejects Samsung appeal of patent loss...

The justices left in place a 2016 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that upheld a verdict that found South Korea’s Samsung Electronics Co Ltd had infringed Apple Inc’s patents on several popular features of the California-based company’s iPhone. Those included slide-to-unlock, autocorrect and quick links, which automatically turn information like addresses and phone numbers into links.

Stop stealing and pay the money.

Paradise Papers Leak Reveals Apple's Secret Tax...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BBC: The world's most profitable firm has a secretive new structure that would enable it to continue avoiding billions in taxes, the Paradise Papers show. They reveal how Apple sidestepped a 2013 crackdown on its controversial Irish tax practices by actively shopping around for a tax haven. It then moved the firm holding most of its untaxed offshore cash, now $252 billion, to the Channel Island of Jersey. Apple said the new structure had not lowered its taxes. It said it remained the world's largest taxpayer, paying about $35 billion in corporation tax over the past three years, that it had followed the law and its changes "did not reduce our tax payments in any country."

Leaked emails also make it clear that Apple wanted to keep the move secret. One email sent between senior partners at Appleby says: "For those of you who are not aware, Apple [officials] are extremely sensitive concerning publicity. They also expect the work that is...

Apple to allow introductory pricing for iOS, tvOS...

As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple is introducing a new Apple App Store pricing feature that allows apps that use auto-renewable subscription pricing to offer special introductory pricing for new customers.

The change was first mentioned in today’s iOS 11.2 beta 2 release notes and should be available for tvOS 11.2 as well. To wit: 

“Soon, you’ll be able to offer new customers a discounted introductory price for your auto- renewable subscriptions on the App Store. iOS 11.2 introduces new classes (SKProductDiscount and SKProductSubscriptionPeriod) and new properties on SKProduct (subscriptionPeriod and introductoryPrice) to provide details on the introductory pricing and billing period you’ve selected for your auto-renewable subscriptions.

With a Photo score of 101, the Apple iPhone X achieves the best results so far for still images, edging out the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the previous joint leaders in DxOMark’s Photo ranking, by one point. DxoMark is an industry standard for camera and lens image quality measurements. 

Compared to the cousin iPhone 8 Plus, the X improves noticeably on zoom performance, but also does better in terms of exposure, color, texture, noise and artifacts, according to DxOMark. Other key strengths in still image mode include very good exposures and HDR images, accurate color rendering, good detail with low noise, as well as a natural-looking bokeh effect in Portrait mode.

For video, the X doesn’t quite rise to the same high-water mark, achieving a video sub-score of 89 points, according to DxOMark. With its key strengths good exposure with fast convergence during lighting changes, accurate color...

‘NYT’: Apple is stashing much of its cash hoard on...

According to the New York Times, Apple is stashing much of its cash hoard on the small island of Jersey, which typically doesn’t tax corporate income. The tech giant has accumulated more than $128 billion in profits offshore that’s untaxed by the U.S. and hardly touched by any other country. 

An aerial view of the island of Jersey.

Jersey, officially the Bailiwick of Jersey, is a Crown dependency of The Crown located near the coast of Normandy, France. Not part of the United Kingdom, it’s a self-governing parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy, with its own financial, legal and judicial systems. Jersey is ranked as a tax haven by many organizations with the Financial Secrecy Index ranking Jersey as 16th, one rank behind the United Kingdom as of 2015.

Supreme Court won’t hear Apple v. Samsung round two

The colossal courtroom clash between Apple and Samsung over patents won't be making a second appearance at the Supreme Court.

The two tech titans went at it in front of juries in San Jose over the course of two blockbuster trials, held in 2012 and 2014. Both times juries returned verdicts in favor of Apple—the first ordering Samsung to pay more than $1 billion in damages, the second ordering a payment of $120 million.

News today concerns the second verdict. In 2016, the $120 million...

Broadcom offers to buy Qualcomm in a deal worth $130...

Broadcom has offered to Qualcomm in a deal worth $130 billion. The U.S. wireless and broadband giant said it would be willing to offer $70 per share in cash and stock for the world’s dominate supplier of broadband processors.

Broadcom expects a potential deal to take up to 12 months to settle, assuming regulatory approval. It’s uncertain how this might affect the ongoing Apple-Qualcomm legal battle.

In January, Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its technology.  However, Qualcomm denies the allegations and says Apple wouldn't have an iPhone business if it weren't for fair licensing of the company’s essential tech.

Qualcomm claims it went out of its way to offer alternative licensing (which Apple rejected), and that, in suing Qualcomm, Apple is motivated by reducing the cost to make iPhones.

iPhone X adoption is stronger than the iPhone 8, 8...

After a full weekend of sales for the iPhone X, the Localytics mobile engagement platform says that adoption of the next gen smartphone is stronger than that of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. 

The iPhone X grabbed 0.93% of the overall market share for iPhones after the first weekend of sales. This puts the X ahead of the 0.7% first weekend adoption for the iPhone 8 models, but still below the 2.3% market share that the iPhone 6 models grabbed back in 2014 and the 1.3% and 1.2% adoption experienced by the iPhone 6S and 7 models in 2015 and 2016.

While this may seem slightly concerning, it’s important to consider that there are significantly more iPhones in the market today than in 2014, notes Localytics. While the iPhone 6 was a major upgrade at the time, it didn’t pack the punch that Apple has introduced with the iPhone X. If Apple’s prediction that the 2017 holiday quarter will be one of its best ever comes true, it’s...

Analyst: Apple will offer two OLED iPhones in 2018

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple to offer two OLED iPhones with stainless steel cases in 2018. The launched iPhone X has an OLED panel and a stainless steel band.

He also predicts that the next phones will include both the Touch ID system, currently in the iPhone 8 models, and the X’s Face ID system. 

Touch ID was reportedly left out of the X due to issues getting the fingerprint sensor into the OLED panel. However, the Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) begs to differ. If Face ID is a big hit (as it seems to be) and works well, I expect all of next year’s iPhone models to go with it and ditch Face ID.

Nextdoor: Getting to know your neighbors with an app

The days of everyone in a neighborhood knowing and helping each other are over. Nowadays, especially in the suburbs, it's common for neighbors living right next to each other to not know each other's names. Nextdoor is a free iOS app that's attempting to turn this sad state of affairs around by using an easy-to-use social network to chat with neighbors. 

I've been using Nextdoor for about six months on my iPhone and have found it to be extremely useful to find out what's going on the neighborhood where I've lived for 33 years. You load the app, let it determine where you live, and then choose the neighborhoods besides your own that you wish to get information about. If there are neighbors near you who isn't using the app, you can request to have up to 50 postcards sent out asking neighbors to sign up the free service.

The iPhone X face mapping: Privacy risks (none) and...

Lots of interesting tidbits in the linked TechCrunch article. Here are a few highlights:

As we’ve covered off in detail before Apple does not have access to the depth-mapped facial blueprints that users enroll when they register for Face ID. A mathematical model of the iPhone X user’s face is encrypted and stored locally on the device in a Secure Enclave.

Face ID also learns over time and some additional mathematical representations of the user’s face may also be created and stored in the Secure Enclave during day to day use

And:

The key point here is that Face ID data never leaves the user’s phone (or indeed the Secure Enclave). And any iOS app developers wanting to incorporate Face ID authentication into their apps do not gain access to it either. Rather authentication happens via a dedicated authentication API that only returns a positive or negative response after comparing the input signal with the Face ID data stored in the Secure Enclave.

The U.S. Supreme Court today refused to step back into the never-ending patent battle between Apple and Samsung and declined to hear the latter’s appeal of a lower court ruling that reinstated a jury award of about $120 million in favor of Apple, reports Reuters.

The justices left in place a 2016 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that upheld a verdict that found Samsung had infringed Apple’s patents on several popular features of the iPhone. Those included slide-to-unlock, autocorrect and quick links, which automatically turn information like addresses and phone numbers into links.

This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied...

How to stop the capital 'I' from turning...

From the Department of Really Strange and Mystical Bugs comes this: Some iPhone users running the latest version of iOS 11 can’t type a capital "I." That means that millions of people who were trying to text their friends, “I got my new iPhone X!!” over the weekend were actually sending out this message instead: “A [?] got my new iPhone X!!”

The iOS 11.1 bug affects the autocorrect engine on phones, and changes a capital “I” to an “A” alongside an unreadable Unicode symbol. While it’s pretty low on the seriousness scale, it’s still an annoying bug to say the least. And it’s hardly uncommon. All over Twitter, unaware celebrities were posting “A [?]” all over the place. Apple, of course, is working on a fix, but in the meantime, there’s a workaround.

[VIDEO] From the App: The Human Story web site:

With the launch of the iPhone and subsequent devices, developers found themselves with a worldwide market hungry for their innovations: apps.

Yet, a renaissance needs cultivation, not exploitation. Ten years in, is the opportunity gone? Will artists find a way to create tools that elevate the human experience, or will the market be valued even above the impact to the future of the industry?

I am really looking forward to seeing this. Enjoy the trailer (embedded in the main Loop post).

If you updated your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 11.1 you may find that when you type the letter “i” it autocorrects to the letter “A” with a symbol. Here’s a workaround until Apple issues a fix:

  • Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.
  • Tap the “plus” sign.
  • For Phrase, type an upper-case "I". For Shortcut, type a lower-case "i."

iOS bug autocorrects letter “i” to “A” plus unicode...

Over the weekend, a steadily growing number of iPhone users were reporting a bug where they’d type the letter “i”, but iOS would autocorrect it to “A” plus a strange symbol (a “?” in a box).

Contrary to some rumors, this behavior is not spreading from phone to phone, or via Twitter. It is limited to iOS 11.1 and any spread is due to updates to iOS 11.1 and spread of awareness.

Apple posted this knowledge base article suggesting you do a text replacement for the letter “i”. Obviously, that’s a temporary workaround until Apple releases a patch, which should be soon.

As to the cause, here’s Jeremy Burge from Emojipedia:

What’s really going on is that the letter “I” is being appended with an invisible character known as Variation Selector 16 when auto-correct...

Apple’s official take on the iPhone X, off-angle...

From this Apple support document:

OLED technology delivers an incredibly high contrast ratio and high resolution. And with no backlight, OLED emits light through each pixel, allowing for a thinner display. The Super Retina display overcomes challenges with traditional OLED displays with its high brightness, wide color support, and has the best color accuracy in the industry.

If you look at an OLED display off-angle, you might notice slight shifts in color and hue. This is a characteristic of OLED and is normal behavior. With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behavior and can include “image persistence” or “burn-in,” where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for...

As noted by MacRumors, SquareTrade, a company that provides extended warranties for electronic devices, says the iPhone X is the “most breakable” Apple smartphone ever.

The company, which wants iPhone X users to purchase its two-year smartphone protection plan, says it conducted several breakability tests on the iPhone X, and found that its glass back and lack of a home button make it "the most breakable iPhone ever." The smartphone glass shattered when dropped on its front and back from a height of six feet, and the display also malfunctioned, claims SquareTrade. Conversely, Apple says the iPhone X has the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone.

How to quickly start writing notes on an iPad

When you’re struck by a brilliant idea (which usually happens to me around 1 a.m.), you don't want to slip away as you spend time unlocking your iPad and opening the Notes app. 

No problem. If you tap the Apple Pencil on the iPad's lock screen, you can start writing a note right away. Or you can simply tell Siri to "Take a Note" and she'll ask you what you want to say. The biggest benefit of the Notes app is that it links notes across devices using iCloud.  

Notes can also be password locked. If you’re using an iPad that supports Touch ID, you can unlock the note with your fingerprint.  

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

We love it when a deal comes along at the perfect time, and that's the "case" with this low cost protective case for the new iPhone X from Vista Shops. After you've spent your $999 to $1299 plus $199 for AppleCare+ and even more for sales tax, your credit card could use a rest. This iPhone X case is just $16.99. 

The case is simple, but provides protection for your iPhone X. You can get the case in black, white or pink, and each one comes complete with a clear back to show the world your Apple pride. A small lip edge surrounds the edge-to-edge screen of the iPhone X, offering some protection from face-down drops. On the inside, there are double-layered walls to absorb shocks and bumps.

My first impression diary pieces are usually exactly that: based on just taking it out of the box, setting it up and playing with it for an hour or three.

This time, however, my iPhone X didn’t arrive until the end of the day on Friday, by which time I was already out for the evening. So this time I’ve had a weekend of use, and have a bit more to say.

I previously outlined the reasons I was buying it, despite my fondness for the iPhone SE. As someone who loves the design of the classic iPhones (iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/SE), and who isn’t a fan of the 6/6S/7/8, the first question I had was what I’d make of the design of the iPhone X …

Why is my Mac slowing down over time?

By Jeff Graber

What do Macs and cars have in common? They require upkeep to stay in perfect condition.

When the miles per gallon on a car go down or the car begins going through oil at an alarming rate, then something has to be done. Macs are no different. The first sign that your Mac may need some TLC is if it begins to slow down.

What is slowing down verses normal operation?

Macs will slow down when performing complex tasks, or a number of tasks at any one time. This is perfectly normal, as the Mac divvies up tasks through its processors. You know you have a problem however when this problem persists over a period of time, even when the Mac is not actively doing something. Slow load times, extended start times for applications, and unresponsive windows are all signs that your Mac may be slowing down over time. So what causes this to happen?

Duplicate enhances the Mac Finder’s standard copy/...

By Aaron Lee

MacDaddy's Duplicate is a macOS hat enhances the Finder's standard copy and paste functionality by making them more efficient, as well as performing approximately 10% faster than stock copy and paste methods.

Duplicate can also copy large folders with no issues involving file permissions, as well as the ability to copy entire volumes, creating an exact duplicate bootable copy of the original volume. It installs itself as an option into the contextual menu that appears when you Control-Click or right-click a file, folder, or drive.

This makes Duplicate just as easy to use as the standard OS X copy and paste functions, while providing a copy and paste operation that is both faster and more efficient. Duplicate avoids failed copies with large folders, and users won't experience any issues with permissions as they sometime do with the standard Copy and Paste functions.

Whenever Duplicate is used to copy data, it makes an exact...

Apple Watches Were Crashing When Asked About the...

Yesterday MacRumor reported that "Asking Siri something like 'What's the temperature?' or 'What's the weather?' or 'Is it raining?' causes the Apple Watch to crash."
The issue has been documented in several threads on the MacRumors forums and on Reddit, and we've also been able to replicate it on our own devices. Complaints about the problem appear to have started this morning, and the bug is confirmed to be affecting both LTE and GPS Apple Watch Series 3 models as well as older Apple Watch models running watchOS 4.1. Not all Apple Watch owners in all countries are affected, but it appears to be impacting users in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The problem may have been caused by Daylight Savings Time, they reported yesterday, since "asking Siri about the weather tomorrow or next week doesn't cause a problem -- it's only questions about the current weather conditions that are resulting in errors."
Engadget confirms that "The issue appears to be over. We'...

The iPhone X cracked on the first drop

CNET:

I took our Space Gray iPhone X out to the sidewalk in front of CNET’s San Francisco offices: a place where many screens have met their doom.

Is it just me or are these kinds of “tests” utterly ridiculous? Of course glass things break when you drop them. Is this really a surprise to anyone?

Not good considering it was the first drop.

Is CNET really unclear how dropping things works? What difference does it make if it’s the first drop or the tenth? Do they think that the phone gets less durable the more you drop it?

Is the iPhone X more fragile than past iPhones? Tough to say, because none of our tests are scientific.

Then maybe you should leave the “testing” to those who can do it scientifically. Regardless, it seems to be pretty much common sense that, when you drop things, they sometimes
