Upcoming version of Adobe Creative Cloud to add...

Ahead of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show next week, Adobe has revealed new features across its Creative Cloud tools for video editing, motion graphics, audio and collaboration. The CC tools are compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems.

Media and entertainment companies are combining these advanced content creation capabilities with Adobe Primetime (a TV platform that helps broadcasters, cable networks and service providers “create and monetize engaging and personalized TV and film experiences”) to help deliver TV and video content across screens. With Adobe’s digital marketing tools TV networks and pay-TV providers can drive viewer acquisition, engagement and monetization as audiences embrace “over the top” (OTT) content via connected devices such as the Apple TV, Sony PlayStation, Roku and Microsoft Xbox.

In the next release of Creative Cloud – available in early summer – Premiere Pro CC will add new virtual reality capabilities, including “...

Here’s another reason to upgrade from iOS 9.3 to iOS...

While iOS 9.3 fixed a bug that "bricked" iOS devices when the date was set to Jan. 1, 1970, and iOS 9.3.1 fixed flitches with iOS 9.3 there’s a variation on iOS 9.3 that can remotely brick later devices as soon as they connect to a WiFi hotspot, reports KrebsonSecurity.

Researchers say they’ve proven how easy it would be to automate the iOS bricking attack over a network, so that potential victims would need only to wander within range of a hostile wireless network to have their Apple devices turned into useless bricks. So if you haven’t upgraded to iOS 9.3.1, do so immediately.

Survey: employees choose Apple products for work

Organizations are increasingly offering employees technology device choice, and when given the choice people choose Macs, iPhones, and iPads for work, according to a survey of executives, managers, and IT professionals on choice programs in the workplace by JAMF Software, which specializes in Apple device management. 

Defined as giving employees the freedom to choose among brands of computer hardware and/or mobile devices for work, employee choice programs have gained prominence in the modern business landscape. Over half (61%) of survey respondents say their company has implemented a choice program, which can include employer-owned devices, BYOD (bring your own device), or both. Eighty percent say they should become a standard in business, demonstrating that choice programs are here to stay.

When given the choice, employees prefer Apple. Survey respondents attribute Apple’s ease of use as the number one reason for selecting...

Apple offering iPhone leasing plans for corporate...

Apple has begun offering corporate customers in India two-year lease plans for the iPhone SE and iPad starting at 999 rupees (about $15) per month, reports The Economic Times. The Cupertino, California-based company is also offering iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S on similar leasing plans for two years at Rs 1,199 (about $18) and Rs 1,399 (about $20) a month, respectively.

Corporate users can, at anytime, move from one iPhone to another, and pay the change in monthly fee as per the model. Apple has had this model running in India for over a year, but the company “appears to be driving it this time around, given the increased India focus and great sales results the fastest growing smartphone market has produced last year,” according to The Economic Times.

Apple has also sought permission from the...

Analysis of retailer data in Japan indicates that early buyers of the iPhone SE are favoring the 16GB model over the 64GB one, possibly suggesting that the majority are buying on price. Life science researcher Naofumi Kagami says that this is particularly interesting as you’d expect early sales to be skewed towards early adopters, who tend to opt for the higher tiers.

Next Apple Watch Will Be More 'S' Than 2


Most of the changes in the next version of the Apple Watch will be on the inside and not the outside of the case, according to an investors note issued Monday by Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. While he was short on details about what the internal changes for the watch might be, the analyst's comments are consistent with rumors circulating last summer that the design of the next version of Apple's wrist computer would remain essentially unchanged, with some improvements in battery life and its display's outdoor visibility.

Juli Clover:

Teen interest in Apple’s iPhone continues to grow, according to data gathered by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster in the latest semiannual teen survey. 69 percent of teens surveyed own iPhones, up from 67 percent in the Fall 2015 survey. 75 percent of teens queried expect their next device to be an iPhone, up one percent from the previous survey.

This is very important. These are the people that Apple is relying on to purchase the iPhones of the future.

A number of oPhone SE early adopters have reported audio issues with Bluetooth phone calls when the smartphone is paired with a vehicle or wireless headset. The issue extends to GPS voice navigation for some, but streaming music over Bluetooth appears to be unaffected.

The users claimed to be experiencing distorted, staticky, or inaudible phone calls when using an iPhone SE over Bluetooth. Many of those affected noted that their previous iPhone model had “crystal clear” audio quality.

One user, who went by the handle HickDead, offered the following feedback regarding the issue:

Apple recently pulled most third-party apps for the popular social-news site Reddit from the App Store, drawing the ire of many of the site’s users, especially since the just-launched official Reddit app was spared. Apple apparently suddenly decided that it didn’t like that many of these apps — some of which had been in the App Store for over a year — contained a switch that let users choose whether or not to display content tagged NSFW (Not Safe for Work). However, Apple has now readmitted many of those apps in which the developer has removed that switch — users must now control access to NSFW content via the Reddit Web site preferences. Apparently, even an NSFW switch is, in Apple’s view, Not Safe for the App Store, which seems overly paternalistic.

AirPlay has been a standard iOS and OS X feature for years, but it’s not an open standard.

But HTC’s upcoming HTC 10 smartphone will include AirPlay support out of the box, integrated into the HTC Connect service. This is presumably being done without Apple’s involvement, so it will be interesting to see how well the HTC 10 sends audio and video to Apple TVs and other AirPlay receivers.

Opinion: Here’s what I’d do to rationalize Apple’s...

Apple has long been about simplicity and minimalism. Steve Jobs’ philosophy was effectively that usability trumps choice. Sure, you lose the ability to customize your iPhone or iPad in the way you can an Android device without jailbreaking it, but what you gain in return is a device that is both more reliable and a lot more secure.

Jobs applied that same philosophy to Apple’s product range. When he returned to Apple in 1997, one of the first things he did was to rationalize the company’s product lineup, paring it back to the essentials. In 2008, he proudly told Fortune that “Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we’ve got less than 30 major products.”

Apple has, for the most part, maintained that approach ever since, famously saying ‘no’ to a thousand product ideas for every time it says ‘yes.’ But I still think there’s a little more work to be...

Bez (free, $7.99 in-app purchase to unlock all features) is designed to create and export vector graphics on Apple's tablets, and it looks like a winner.

According to Juicy Bits founder Michael Swanson, Bez has its roots in a search for new features to add to Halftone 2 -- a perennial Editor's Choice in the App Store and the flagship app of Juicy Bits.

According to Gartner, the Mac’s worldwide computer market share was 7.1% during the quarter, up 1.5% year-over-year. In the U.S., Apple has 12.7%, up from 11.9% a year ago. Gartner’s stats are based on global sales of 3.1 million Macs in the first quarter of 2016.

Many folks weren’t happy when Apple replaced its old dock connectors with the reversible Lightning cable (so imagine the outcry if the rumors of upcoming iPhones eliminating the audio jack are true), but Lightning has made life easier for iPhone and iPad users. The MicFlip, which is purportedly the world’s first reversible micro-USB cable, is designed to do the same for Android (and other non-iOS smartphone) users.

The MicFlip (pronounced “Mike-flip”) works in any orientation, so it’s work whenever you attempt to plug in a micro-USB device — even if you’re fumbling in the dark. Featuring a hardy aluminum shell, gold plated plugs, and a braided cable (that’s strong and tangle free), the $19.99 cord is available in 20cm, 100cm, and 200cm version and silver, gold, and red/black flavors. 

If you have an Android smartphone, you’ll love the handy MicFlip. Or you could switch to an iPhone and really...

London’s Met Police abandons plan to issue 15-20,000...

London’s Metropolitan Police service has apparently abandoned plans to issue iPad minis to 15-20,000 frontline officers after spending a total of £6M ($8.58M) on a trial of just 641 devices. This means that the trial ended up costing the taxpayer £9,360 ($13,397) per iPad.

The Inquirer obtained the information using a Freedom of Information request.

The Met spent £1.2m on hardware during that time, including the iPads and supporting servers and accessories, £4.1m on custom software development, which included the databases to support mobile operations, £600,000 on business and management activities and £100,000 on licences. The costs also include the replacement of 12 tablets during the trial period …

2016 may be the year that WiGig finally takes off (...

Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com) says 2016 may be the year in which 802.11ad (better known as WiGig) finally takes off. But will it arrive on Macs this year?

WiGig isn't aimed at replacing your wireless network. Instead it's designed to aid your existing Wi-Fi by providing a fast, direct link between devices. More on that in a moment. 802.11ad marks the coming of 7Gbps wireless. Data transfer rates are purportedly over 10 times the maximum speed previously enabled within the IEEE 802.11 standard.This involves fast speeds over short distances; 802.11ad will deliver 7Gbps speeds over 60GHz frequencies.

WiGig is so fast that it can be used as a "wireless bus extension." In other words, it can wirelessly substitute for hardware inside your Mac. Imagine a hard drive sitting on your desk -- or near your desk -- but not physically connected to your computer. If both your Mac and the HD were WiGig enabled, the...

MAZ launches Home platform for the Apple TV

MAZ, a New York City-based startup, has released a new platform called Home, which is designed to enable any media provider to distribute their video content on an Apple TV.

CEO Paul Canetti says that, in many ways, Apple TV is reminiscent of the early days of iPhone, where the App Store enabled newer and smaller brands to emerge and establish an audience. Using MAZ's Home platform, “brands of any size can quickly and easily create apps with a fraction of the time and cost it would take with traditional custom development,” he adds.

"There were phones before apps, but no one remembers them,” Canetti says. ”The way we thought about phones back then is the way we think about TV today. Apps are going to dramatically change that, and we want to make sure that anyone with video content can be at the forefront of that change”

Following on the heels of recent MAZ product releases like Wear, a platform for...

As of early April, you can now play PlayStation 4 games right on your Mac. It’s not emulation, and no, the Blu-ray discs won’t work in your computer… assuming you even still have an optical drive. Oh, and you’ll need a PlayStation 4 console, of course.

Sound complicated and/or convoluted? Surprisingly, it’s not: Thanks to the latest system update released for PlayStation 4, it’s now possible to stream games directly from the console to your Mac or PC over an Internet connection. With the Mac installer and a PS4 gamepad, you can tap into the digital and disc-based games on the most popular game console on the market today.

As for its reasoning for removing the apps, Apple says they violate clause 18.2 of the App Review Guidelines, which relates to NSFW content…

Cellebrite Is Developing Roadside Police '...

An anonymous reader writes: Cellebrite, the company many believe helped the FBI crack into the iPhone 5c belonging to a San Bernardino terrorist, is developing a roadside "textalyzer" device to help law enforcement determine whether someone involved in a motor vehicle accident was unlawfully driving while distracted. As reported from Ars Technica: "Under the first-of-its-kind legislation proposed in New York, drivers involved in accidents would have to submit their phone to roadside testing from a textalyzer to determine whether the driver was using a mobile phone ahead of a crash." The textalyzer allegedly would keep conversations, contacts, numbers, photos, and application data private in an effort to get around the Fourth Amendment right to privacy. "Cellebrite has been leading the adoption of field mobile forensics solutions by law enforcement for years, culminating in the formal introduction of our UFED FIELD series product line a year ago," Jim Grady, Cellebrite's CEO, said...

Apple Patent Filing Points To a Keyboard With No Keys

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Digital Trends: Apple's patent, titled "Configurable Force-Sensitive Input Structure for Electronic Devices," was filed in September 2015 and was recently made available to the public on April 7th. It states that this all-in-one input interface consists of a metal contact layer, and a sense layer combined with a drive layer mounted underneath. According to the patent, the sense and drive layers detect a force exerted on the metal contact layer. This is accomplished by using an array of pixels on the sense and drive layers that determine an input location when active pixels are aligned on both layers. The user then gets a response to his or her action thanks to a haptic feedback module and a light guide layer that lights up the "keys" through extremely tiny holes in the metal surface. The components of the force-input sensitive "structure" are enclosed within the device's chassis; thus the only exposed portion is the contact surface itself....

Every other year, Apple redesigns its iPhones. It looks like the Apple Watch will be on the same biennial hardware overhaul schedule, if KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is on target (and he usually is).

Kuo’s latest research note came out today with guidance on the Apple Watch 2, and he notes that the second-gen model will have “limited changes to form factor design.”

Expect internal improvements, though Kuo didn’t say what those might be. We can guess, though. Reports last summer indicated that an Apple Watch 2 was already in the works with a Wi-Fi chip that would allow the watch to function on its own without an iPhone nearby. That would make the device a whole lot more useful than...

Ford After Dark: Self-Driving Car 'Sees'...


Ford on Monday revealed that it has been testing its Fusion Hybrid autonomous research vehicle with no headlights on remote desert roads at night. While such a task would be quite perilous for a human driver, it was an important step in developing a fully autonomous vehicle, the company said. The test vehicle relied not on cameras, which require light, but instead on LiDAR technology for navigation. LiDAR worked with the car's virtual driver software to navigate the pitch-black and winding roads at the Ford Arizona Proving Ground.

Review: iPhone SE is just a (really nice) phone for...

There was a time just a few years back when the 4-inch screen was considered Apple’s big phone. After five generations of 3.5-inch screens, Apple made the iPhone taller in 2012 with the 4-inch iPhone 5. The width remained the same in a “common sense” move that maintained easy one-hand use for most people, and the 16:9 aspect ratio framed video playback perfectly. Two years later, Apple upgraded the iPhone with two new models: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, but no new 4-inch iPhone until now.

iPhone SE is the first upgrade to this size since the iPhone 5s in 2013. It’s a huge specs upgrade if you’re coming from an iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, or earlier. And in some cases like mine, iPhone SE is mostly on par with Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus flagships. But there are a few limitations of varying importance plus a few oddities that should be considered before buying … even with the relatively competitive price tag on iPhone SE.

iPhone SE users reporting Bluetooth sound issues

It's never nice to hear about problems with a new Apple product, but that's the case with the new iPhone SE. The Apple support forums are currently showing a number of reports of distorted sound during phone calls made with the iPhone paired through Bluetooth to a wireless headphone or car audio system.

The problem exists with both iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.3.1, and it's happening everywhere that the phone is being sold. Not every user is having the problem, so it could be associated with Bluetooth chipsets made by a certain vendor. Restoring the device, clearing and then restoring pairing, and other changes do not work to fix the problem.

Apple is aware of the situation and has given it a high priority for resolution.

Learning to Love Virtual Reality


At Nvidia's technology conference last week, I saw a variety of new technologies showcased. From deep learning systems -- computers that arguably are smarter than we are -- to self-driving cars that can drive better than we can, the technological advances on display made me feel just a tad inadequate. One way to get over my sudden concern over obsolescence was to check out the virtual reality showcase. With the realization of all the free time I'm likely to get, the prospect of computers doing what I used to do suddenly didn't look so bad.
