Amazon Prime Video could be coming to Apple TV at...

John Paczkowski writing for BuzzFeed:

Sources in position to know tell BuzzFeed News that Amazon’s Prime video app — long absent from Apple TV — is indeed headed to Apple’s diminutive set-top box. Apple plans to announce Amazon Prime video’s impending arrive to the Apple TV App Store during the keynote at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5 in San Jose, CA. A source familiar with the companies’ thinking say the app is expected to go live this summer, but cautioned that the hard launch date might change. Amazon had previously declined to even submit a Prime Video app for inclusion in Apple’s Apple TV App Store.

John certainly knows his stuff and this has been rumored before. It would be great if Amazon and Apple could get things worked out, release a video app, and get the Apple TV back in the Amazon store again.

New York will allow self-driving vehicle testing

“We are taking a careful yet balanced approach to incorporating autonomous vehicles on our roads to reduce dangerous driving habits, decrease the number of accidents and save lives on New York roadways,” Cuomo said in a statement.

Says a lot about the driving habits of many on the roads today.

Companies in New York must have a $5 million insurance policy, submit reports to the state, be overseen by the state police and pay the state police for supervising each test.

Testing also cannot take place in construction or school zones – which take up huge swaths of land in New York City – and must adhere to a predesignated route shared in advance with the state.

No doubt there will be challenges or suggestions from the companies developing the technology.

Apple and Amazon have settled (at least some of) their differences. Amazon Prime Video is officially making its way to the Apple TV.

In addition, Amazon.com will be start selling the Apple TV set-top box again after being banned two years ago.

Rumor: Amazon Prime to be announced for the Apple TV...

Apple plans to announce Amazon Prime video's coming to the Apple TV App Store during the keynote at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5, according to BuzzFeed News

The article, quoting an unnamed “source familiar with the companies' thinking,” says the app is expected to go live this summer, though the hard launch date could change. This would allow Amazon Prime Video subscribers to easily watch TV shows and movies from the service using Apple's set-top box.

As part of the arrangement between the two companies, Amazon will resume selling Apple's set-top box, adds BuzzFeed. If the rumor is true, this would be an about-face for Amazon. In June 2016, CEO Jeff Bezos said he only wants Amazon to sell devices that support Prime Video....

The Apple Watch can be used to help diagnose a...

In a joint study published today, app developer Cardiogram and researchers at the University of California, San Francisco said Apple Watch combined with Cardiogram’s algorithm showed the smartwatch’s sensors can differentiate between a normal heart rhythm and atrial fibrillation (AF). In fact, the study identified AF with 97% accuracy.

There’s hope that the Apple Watch combined with Cardiogram’s algorithm can help diagnose a potentially fatal heart condition. Over the past few months, the company has developed a preliminary algorithm to detect AF using the heart rate sensors on Apple’s smartwatch and Android Wear. Cardiogram’s Health & Heart Rate is a free app for the Apple Watch that helps users track sleep, stress, and fitness using your Apple Watch's built-in heart rate sensor.

"While mobile technology screening won't replace more conventional monitoring methods, it has the potential to...

Research shows the Apple Watch can detect an early...

The Apple Watch has already saved lives with its heart rate-monitoring, but it’s often unintentional. A person might feel symptoms like dizziness or shortness of breath, then check their heart rate to confirm something weird is going on. A team of researchers just proved that the watch’s heart rate sensor can actually detect an early sign of heart disease without any symptoms at all, a development that could change how people use their Apple Watches.

The Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor can accurately pick up atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rate that can lead to stroke or heart disease. Atrial fibrillation can be caused by a variety of factors, including high blood pressure, so the Apple Watch isn’t a diagnostic device. But its accurate heart rate sensor shows there is potential for the watch as a...

The day after the latest earnings call, CEO Tim Cook told CNBC's Jim Cramer that Apple is launching an advanced manufacturing fund, and seeing it with $1 billion. The fund's first investment should be announced soon, but Glenn and Susie are excited about the idea already.

Elsewhere, Amazon Prime Video might come to the Apple TV. Hulu Live is pretty promising already. And Twitter's getting into the video game too, just without any NFL games this coming season.

Apple to offer iTunes on the Windows Store

Also, Microsoft announced today that, with the new Xamarin Live Player, iOS developers can deploy, run, test and debug iOS apps directly from a Windows PC that runs Visual Studio.

Hearing Aid Pro: Hearing assistance with an iPhone

One of the "badges of honor" that comes along with advancing years is hearing loss. Whether it's medically-caused, the result of too many years of listening to loud music, or just plain old age, almost everyone gets to the point that their hearing isn't as sharp as it used to be. Hearing Air Pro (US$9.99) is designed to act as a hearing aid that runs on your iPhone, and since I was recently diagnosed with significant hearing loss in my left ear, I thought I'd give it a try.

The app is quite simple to use; connect a pair of earbuds to your iPhone, open the app, tweak the amplification, noise reduction, and other factors, then enjoy amplified hearing. The developer, iMect, says that "Hearing Aid Pro implements sophisticated audiology algorithms to solve your complex hearing needs." 

Now, why would someone want to use a $10 app to help out...

In a surprise announcement at the Build developer event today, Microsoft revealed it has been working with Apple to get iTunes listed in the Windows Store. It might not sound like an important addition, but iTunes is one of the most searched for apps that's currently missing in the Windows Store. USA Today veteran columnist, summing up the announcement, "Microsoft announces that iTunes (incl Apple Music and full support for iPhone) is coming to the Windows Store. Big get for Microsoft."

At the Windows 10 S launch event last week, it was revealed that Spotify is on its way, and during Thursday’s Build 2017 keynote, Windows chief Terry Myerson announced that iTunes—yes, Apple’s crown jewel—is coming to the Windows Store.

Details beyond that are scarce; Myerson simply said that iTunes will include Apple Music and “full support for iPhone,” whatever that means for a Windows Store app.

If there's one thing about the expected 10th anniversary iPhone that bloggers enjoy, it's that it is generating a lot of good fodder for posts. Today's rumors are extra-tasty, with a side helping of believability.

The first has to do with the expected processor for the iPhone 8 -- the 10nm A11 chips that will be manufactured by TSMC of Taiwan. Allegedly, TSMC has begun production of the new chips after solving issues with "stacking components in the backend integrated fan-out packaging process," according to DigiTimes

The next good news has to do with LG Innotek, which is reported to be supplying front-facing 3D facial recognition cameras for the next-generation iPhone (see concept image above by Benjamin Geskin). The devices are being made in a new $239 million South Korean facility that's dedicated solely to creating components for Apple products. The initial order for the cameras is...

Apple helps smartwatches grow 25% in quarter one

Basic band shipments, mostly fitness bands, fell 7% year on year to just over nine million in the first quarter of 2017 - the category’s first ever decline, according to Canalys. However, it was good news for Apple.

Leading vendors Fitbit and Xiaomi saw shipments fall worldwide, including in their home countries, notes Canalys. The research group says the trend comes as users switch to smartwatches for greater functionality. Smartwatch shipments increased 25% year on year to more than six million. 

The category now accounts for around 40% of the wearable band market, with growth largely driven by the Apple Watch, with its reinvigorated focus on health and fitness. Despite its high price, Apple’s smartwatch gained the top spot in the wearable band category in the first quarter (Q1) 2017, with 3.8 million units shipped worldwide and growth of 77%.

"Project Titan is likely to be a transportation platform—not a car but the entire experience," the UBS note said. "Jony Ive and Marc Newson are interested in car design, both exterior and interior."

The research group said the experts it had spoken to thought car ownership will plummet with autonomous driving. 

"Then who is going to own all these cars? It might be Apple, one plausible reason to keep a large cash balance," the note said. "For now the company is building expertise in core sensor, driving, and mapping technologies.”

The story that emerges when the music is stripped...

[VIDEO] Lori Dorn, Laughing Squid:

Mario Wienerroither has taken the famous half-animated video for the A-HA song “Take On Me“, strategically stripped the music out and dubbed in appropriate reactive sounds. Without the music, the lighthearted romance of the original video was gone and a more sinister theme took its place.

Video embedded in the linked Loop post.

It’s not exactly a traditional story, but it certainly is interesting. This was the first example of rotoscoping I ever saw. I think it still holds up after all these years.

Lauren Thomas, CNBC:

Fossil Group’s latest financials show the watchmaker is clearly hurting from Apple’s encroachment into the traditional hardware sector.

Shares of Fossil closed down more than 20 percent Wednesday, following the company’s dismal first-quarter earnings report.

“Our results for the first quarter … continue to reflect a challenging retail environment and a watch category undergoing significant change,” Fossil CEO Kosta Kartsotis said on the earnings conference call.

Results like these fly in the face of naysayers, support the notion that Apple Watch is entrenched and is solidifying its hold on this market.

An Apple patent published today describes using iMessages instead of voice to interact with Siri in environments when speaking wouldn’t be practical.

This could span both ends of the spectrum, from very noisy environments like construction sites, where your voice cannot be heard, to very quiet ones like libraries, where you would disturb people by speaking. It would also be useful for people who don’t feel comfortable talking to their phone in public …

Apple looks to incorporate Siri further into Messages

Apple wants to incorporate Siri — its “personal digital assistant” even more into its Messages app on macOS and iOS devices. The company has filed for a patent (number 20170132019) for an “intelligent automated assistant in a messaging environment.”

In the patent filing, Apple says that it would desirable to implement a digital assistant (Siri) in a messaging environment (Messages). The messaging platform can enable multiple modes of input (e.g., text, audio, images, video, etc.) to be sent and received. A user request can define a request to Siri using a combination of inputs (e.g., image and text). 

Apple says this can increase the functionality and capabilities of the digital assistant,  providing a richer interactive experience between a user and a digital assistant. What’s more, a digital assistant in a message environment can enable the digital assistant to be a participant in a multi-party conversation where the benefits associated with the digital assistant...

Apple may be working on the next generation of the...

Apple may be planning a new version of the late, lamented MacSafe adapter. The company has filed for a patent (number 20170133787) for “flexible and breakaway mechanisms for connections.” And it might even be illuminated.

With the 2016 MacBook Pro line, Apple ditched the beloved MagSafe connector, which disengaged with the slightest amount of pressure. This saved many Mac laptops from a disastrous plummet when someone accidentally snagged the power cable.

The patent filing is for connectors that can withstand force and are easy to manufacture. They may include connecting portions that may move relative to other portions of the connectors to absorb force. The connectors may be designed to partially break in order to protect devices that may be connected to. They may be further designed to break in a controlled manner to prevent springs or other components that may be under compression from being dislodged from the connectors.

In the patent filing, Apple notes...

Apple plans major expansions at its Arizona and...

Apple is looking to beef up its services backend with major expansions at existing data centers in Arizona and Nevada, including a $1 billion investment that doubles its commitment to a Reno Technology Park facility, according to AppleInsider.

Construction of a previously planned "phase 2" addition to Apple's Mesa, Arizona, data center is underway. And the tech giant is expected to further increase the size of its Arizona data center in the near future as part of a "phase 3" expansion, adds AppleInsider.

Apple is repurposing GT Advanced's former sapphire plant in Mesa to produce cabinets for its other data centers. The nature of the product is not for end users but for other global data centers what will be supported from the site.

Additionally, Apple may purchase half of a city block in downtown Reno, Nevada for a 30,...

Apple’s interest in cars dates back to at least 2008, when Steve Jobs and ‘father of the iPod’ Tony Fadell discussed the idea. Project Titan appeared to be the company gearing up to finally create an Apple Car, but things seem to have changed since the first reports.

Apple has acknowledged it is exploring the area, but of course declined to say anything specific about its plans. Tim Cook joked about dodging the question back in the spring of...

Sonnet Technologies has announced the launch of the Echo Express SE III, the newest member of the company's Echo Express family of Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express (PCIe) expansion systems. 

With full support for Thunderbolt 3, the Echo Express SE III is a compact desktop device that enables the use of up to three high-performance PCIe cards with Macs equipped with Thunderbolt 3 ports. Users of Macs equipped with 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, such as the new MacBook Pro, are able to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 2750 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth to support the most demanding, highest-performance adapter cards, according to Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies.

The Echo Express SE III features three x8 PCIe 3.0 slots, accommodates full-height, half-length+ (up to 7.75 inches long) PCIe cards, and connects them to one of the Mac's Thunderbolt 3 ports via the included 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable.

In-cabin notebook ban may soon apply to flights from...

The Department of Homeland Security may be expanding its notebook ban, forbidding notebooks in the cabins of all flights from Europe to the United States. News of the expanded ban, which could be announced as soon as Thursday, came from European security officials.

Passengers flying from Europe to the United States may need to store their computers in their checked luggage. The Department of Homeland Security has yet to announce a final decision on this matter, with Security Secretary John Kelly planning to discuss the matter with senators in a classified briefing on Thursday.

The DHS offered the following comment:

“No final decisions have been made on expanding the restriction on large electronic devices in aircraft cabins; however, it is under consideration. DHS continues to evaluate the threat environment and will make changes when necessary to keep air travelers safe.”

The notebook and tablet in-cabin ban was first announced in March. The ban...

The M4 Stand for iPhone isn’t very practical, but it...

To be honest, Elago’s M4 Stand for the iPhone has little practical value, unlike the W3 Stand for Apple Watch, but it is kinda cool. You’ll have to decide if you want to spend $34.99 for a “kinda cool” case for the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 (alas, there are no Plus sizes available).

The M4 Stand’s gimmick is that you slide your iPhone into the stand (5.8 inches long, 4.3 inches wide, and 5 inches tall), “transforming it into an old Apple monitor.” Well, actually, the set-up resembles a “squished” version of an early, beige Mac. There’s a pass-through rail underneath the stand for connecting your Lightning cable for charging.

The M4 Stand is made with scratch-free silicone to prevent damage to your iPhone and cable. The material provides enough weight that...

MenuMate is your ‘menu bar everywhere’

When I click the scroll-wheel button on my mouse (or use the keyboard shortcut I've assigned it, Control + z), a fabulous little app called MenuMate puts the entire menu bar for whichever application I’m currently using right beneath my mouse pointer.

Here’s what it looks like with Microsoft Word:

It’s a one-trick pony to be sure, but it’s a damn good trick, and it costs a mere $4.99 (for a single license for up to three computers).

So, if you've ever thought it takes too long to mouse over to the menu bar, or wished you could make the menu bar come to you, be sure and check out MenuMate.

TSMC will be the sole supplier of A11 chips for the upcoming iPhone refresh.

The A11 chip is also expected to be included in the iPhone 7s spec bump phones, which will seemingly use the same chassis design as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, although this is not universally supported by the rumors.

Linksys jumps into the cable modem market and...

Cable companies can deliver very fast broadband service because the coaxial cable they use offers so much more bandwidth than the twisted-pair cable that DSL service relies on. And the cable companies will happily rent you the equipment you need, on top of the fee they charge you for internet service. But they can’t force you to use their equipment, so router manufacturers are building cable modems you can purchase. Linksys jumped into that market today with its CG7500, a two-in-one DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem/router.

The Linksys CG7500 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem features a built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi router.
