It’s that time of year again: CES, the mega-event in Las Vegas where every company except Apple releases its upcoming product roadmap. 9to5 has six people on the ground this year, and we’re covering big ticket items, as well as searching for the sort of hidden gold nuggets only the massive CES can deliver.

Qardio, maker of award-winning, smartphone-connected healthcare accessories including the already-available QardioArm wireless blood pressure monitor, was nice enough to sponsor us this year.

Tumblr Co-Founder: Apple's Software Is In a...

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...

There’s got to be some truth in here somewhere.

The image, said to be captured from a Foxconn factory, was released Sunday evening. The report states that a person claiming to be a Foxconn factory worker captured the image, which represents an alleged 3D rendering of the anticipated device.

iBeacon manual goes into the wild, appears on FCC...

Apple probably didn’t intend to have its iBeacon design go into the wild.

Still, it’s an interesting piece of hardware.

Per 9to5Mac, a user manual designed for developers detailing the iBeacon hardware has become available via the FCC web site and visible via appadvice.com.

The Apple iBeacon mounts to a wall with a standard screw. There is an LED on the underside of the unit, which reports battery condition and general status. Although there is no mention of battery life, it probably lasts several months (Bluetooth Low Energy doesn’t drain much power) and can be recharged via micro-USB.

A switch on the side device allows it to be...

Security researcher demonstrates Thunderbolt...

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...

We know that health gadgets and apps are the new black, but you have to wonder whether things might be getting just a little out of hand when the latest one to appear on crowdfunding site Indiegogo is essentially a hi-tech way to determine whether your breath smells …

Ok, the Breathometer Mint is a little more than that, measuring your hydration level too, and the company behind it is keen to point out that the breath analysis can be an early pointer to risks to your teeth as well as your social standing.

Breath analysis specialists Breathometer says the device measures Hydrogen Sulfide, Methyl Mercapthan and Hydrogen Disulfide levels in parts per billion to determine whether you may have dental problems.

Apple’s marketing aims given priority over software...

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.

We don’t need major OS releases every year. We don’t need...

CES: Oh, the Amazing Things You Will See


Writing a CES teaser is a bit difficult because I actually know a great deal about what will be announced, but I can't share the details because I'm bound by a variety of ironclad nondisclosure agreements. However, I can comment in general about the product categories you are going to see opened up at the show, and I have to say you'd better lock up your wallet because much of this is cool and you'll likely want it. Fortunately, given how broke we generally are after the holidays, most of this won't be showing up for months.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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...

Forums: TroubleshootingTags: Xsan 4

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.

Alpine to debut iLX-007, the first in-dash system...

Alpine always did have some nifty stuff in its product line.

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.

Is it ok to cheat airlines if it saves you money?

Businessweek:

Would you “scam” an airline’s ticketing policy if it saved $25? $70? $400?

A federal lawsuit is bringing public attention to “hidden city” ticketing, the technique of buying an airline ticket between two cities with a connection but ditching the rest of the trip. Say, for example, you want to fly from Boston to San Francisco but notice that a ticket from Boston to Seattle—with a connection in San Francisco—is cheaper. Once your flight lands in San Francisco, you prance out of the airport at your intended destination, pocketing the savings.

Airlines hate this maneuver—which has been around for decades—and argue that it violates the terms of the sale.

I’m normally not a fan of “scams” but the airlines have screwed us so often and in so many different ways, I’d have no problem using this method to save money.

iDict brute-force security tool for hacking iCloud...

This may be worth keeping an eye on if you’re concerned about iCloud security.

Per 9to5Mac, a new tool submitted to developer web site GitHub claims to be able to perform password dictionary attacks on any iCloud account, seemingly able to evade detection from Apple’s rate-limiting security that is supposed to prevent such dictionary attacks from happening. In September, Apple reported it had closed one such hole that allowed brute-force attacks to occur.

The source code for the tool has been released onto GitHub. Upon inspection, the tool is somewhat crude in its complexity. It simply tries every possible word in its 500-long word-list as the password for a given iCloud account email. This means whilst it will...

Tunity turns your iPhone into headphones for your TV

Tunity:

Tunity allows you to hear a muted TV’s audio directly to your mobile device. It acts just like a wireless headset – no need to purchase an expensive set.

Scan the TV and let Tunity locate and match the audio and stream it straight to your iPhone or iPad.

I used this app on New Year’s Day during ESPN’s broadcast of the Rose Bowl game (GO DUCKS!) and it worked great. I can see it being very useful in a sports bar with dozens of TVs set to different game broadcasts but no audio to listen

Marriott plans to block personal wifi hotspots

Boing Boing:

Marriott is fighting for its right to block personal or mobile Wi-Fi hotspots—and claims that it’s for our own good.

The hotel chain and some others have a petition before the FCC to amend or clarify the rules that cover interference for unlicensed spectrum bands. They hope to gain the right to use network-management tools to quash Wi-Fi networks on their premises that they don’t approve of. In its view, this is necessary to ensure customer security and to protect children.

If Marriott’s petition were to succeed, we’d likely see hotels that charge guests and convention centers that charge exhibitors flipping switches to shut down any Wi-Fi not operated by the venue. The American hotel industry’s trade group is a co-filer of the petition, and Hilton submitted a comment in support: this isn’t just Marriott talking.

I don’t travel often but when I do, I won’t be staying in a Marriott any more.

iCloud.com Photos beta pulls disappearing act, no...

It’s hard to say exactly what’s happening here, but sometimes Apple makes changes with no warning.

Per AppleInsider, the beta iCloud.com Photos application is no longer available to access via the website, as a vague “early 2015″ launch date for a new Photos for OS X app also looms.

The iCloud Photos app had been available in beta form since last October, when it first debuted. In the following weeks, Apple had gradually added features, such as the ability to manually upload photos to the cloud.

But now, Photos for iCloud.com is no longer available to access. Manually entering the URL for the app returns the error: “Can’t load Photos. There was a problem loading the application.”

Apple’s unreleased iBeacon hardware exposed in user...

Way back in July, Apple registered FCC certification for a new piece of iBeacon Bluetooth hardware. Naturally, 9to5Mac covered the release of wireless certification documents for the hardware. It was unclear by those filings the nature of the product, whether it was targeted at use in Apple Stores, some form of developer testing equipment or something else entirely. The product was never made publicly available for purchase, for unknown reasons.

However, time has elapsed such that the rest of Apple’s submitted documents are now available to the public. Vitally, this includes a user manual which immediately signals that this iBeacon hardware was meant for developers, presumably to test iBeacon integration in their own apps. It’s unclear, though, if this is meant to be...

"A host of me-too apps have been introduced to the market since Instagram was launched. Filters are becoming a competitive advantage for Instagram so I suspect you'll see it develop more filters as time goes on because that's the real value of their service," noted IDC Research Director Chris Chute.

Going direct to the URL for the Photos app (iCloud.com/#photos) seems to try and load the app but fails with an error message: “Can’t Load Photos: There was a problem loading the application.”. Although this is only speculation, it seems like Apple’s...

Apple Faces Class Action Lawsuit For Shrinking...

An anonymous reader notes that Apple is being sued over claims that iOS 8 uses too much storage space on the company's devices. "Ever wonder why there never is enough space on your iPhone or iPad? A lawsuit filed this week against Apple Inc. alleges that upgrades to the iOS 8 operating system are to blame, and that the company has misled customers about it. In the legal complaint filed in California, Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara accuse Apple of "storage capacity misrepresentations and omissions" relating to Apple's 8 GB and 16GB iPhones, iPads and iPods. Orshan has two iPhone 5 and two iPads while Endara had purchased an iPhone 6. They contend the upgrades to the operating system end up taking up as much as 23 percent of the storage space on their devices."

Apple increases iOS and Mac Developer Program...

Apple has quietly increased the cost of its iOS & Mac Developer Programs in some EU countries with price hikes confirmed for at least the UK and Germany. In Germany, the programs are up from the previous €80/year to €99/year, while in the UK pricing has been adjusted from £60/year to £79/year.

While the price increase is already live in at least the UK and Germany, pricing for the program in the US remains at $99/year.

Apple requires app developers to enroll in its developer programs for both the iOS App Store and Mac App Store in order to distribute apps through the stores and access Apple’s developer tools alongside early iOS and OS X releases.

It’s unclear if the change could be a result of currency fluctuations or perhaps a...

Opening the packaging, unwrapping the cellophane, untwisting the cable ties, and key-cutting tape is as much a part of the technology ritual as meditating on which device to buy in the first place.

But that first whiff of silica gel and plastic-infused air can seem a little sterile. Technology has come to mean sleek, metallic, and smooth, impersonal by definition of its mass production.

This Christmas I've found the perfect antidote: a selection of handmade wooden products from Grovemade. As described on the website, the team is "a family of creators—close knit and a little crazy—handcrafting goods at our workshop in Portland, Oregon."

Stornext MDC and Yosemite

Forums: General Xsan TalkTags: Stornext MDC Yosemite Downgrade Xsan4

We received a new MacMini with Yosemite 10.10. We need to hook to Stornext 4.3.3 MDC to work as a client to move files between our various Stornext 4.3.3 SAN volumes. It has Xsan4, which we see is not supported. The plan was to go from MacMini to Atto Thunderlink 2162 to Stornext MDC and attach with 16 GB FC.
Since Xsan4 is not listed as compatible with Stornext 4.3.3, is it possible to either downgrade to Xsan3, or to go back to Mavericks to get Xsan3? We weren't anticipating the Xsan4 issue. We just need a client on Xsan to talk to the Stornext 4.3.3 MDC and SAN volumes.
