The year's biggest loser was the American public

Even if we judge 2016 purely on the musical legends it stole from us, it would be an awful one. The truth is, this year has been rough by any standard. Our social networks, ostensibly designed to connect us, led us to turn on one another. Incidents o...

Germany Could Ding Facebook for Fake News


The frenzied 2016 election cycle mercifully is over, but Facebook's fake news problem isn't going away. The company may face steep fines in Germany if it fails to address it satisfactorily. A bill slated for consideration next year would establish fines of up to $500,000 euros per day for each day that a fake news story persisted after notification of its falsehood was provided. The legislation, which has bipartisan support, would apply to other sites as well, but Facebook clearly is its main target.

My 2017 predictions for the iPhone, iPad, Apple...

I've stared into my crystal ball and this is what I see happening in regards to Apple in 2017. Here’s what I’m predicting for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.

First, the iPhone. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (I don't think they’ll be dubbed iPhone 10 and 10 Plus, even though 2017 is the 10th anniversary of Apple’s smartphone) will debut in September. They'll have a glass casing, a bezel-less form factor, and wireless charging. 

The next gen iPhones will sport a curved OLED screen, a faster A11 processor, be completely waterproof, and have no Home button. The Home button function, as well as Camera and Touch ID, will, per the rumor mill, be integrated into the display. (These features probably won’t apply to the second gen iPhone SE, which will be Apple’s low-end smartphone for the budget conscious.)

I’m dubious about this, but the 2017 Apple smartphones will have at least one model with a 5.8-inch screen, according to a...

My Mac and macOS predictions for 2017

I've stared into my crystal ball and this is what I see happening in regards to Apple in 2017. First, let’s look at the Mac line-up, which was sorely neglected this year. 

The iMac will be revved with faster Kaby processors and get updated graphics. For the latter, I expect the AMD’s Zen processor in most models, and and AMD Polaris Graphics set in a high-end model. The new iMacs will also implement a True Tone display, which uses new four-channel sensors to dynamically adjust the white balance of the display to match the light around you for a more natural and accurate, paper-white viewing experience.

I don’t expect the basic design to change (can Apple make it any thinner?), though I think we’ll see a space gray all-in-one (and perhaps other colors). It’s possible that Apple may offer all Macs with flash drives only, dropping the Fusion drives. However, I think that Apple will continue to offer Fusion drives. In fact, if they’re truly wanting to...

Romantic images of bringing iPhone production back to the USA to create jobs were given a further blow today when Apple’s main iPhone assembler Foxconn announced that it has already deployed 40,000 robots on its production lines, and is working towards a goal of fully-automated factories.

Foxconn has already replaced more than half its workforce with robots since the launch of the iPhone 6, and the company’s Automation Technology Development Committee general manager Dai Jia-peng said that this was just the start of a three-phase plan …

Inventec expanding its capacity to met AirPod demand

Apple CEO Tim Cook has called the AirPods a “runaway success,” and maybe he’s not exaggerating. Apple is seeing strong demand for the wireless earpieces during the year-end holidays and its strong sales are expected to benefit the device's manufacturer Inventec, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report (as noted by DigiTimes). 

The article says Inventec —  a Taiwan-based manner of mobile devices, notebook computers, and servers — has recently started expanding capacity at its Shanghai plants in order to satisfy increasing demand for the earphones and the plants are currently working overtime to deliver orders.

AirPods are wireless headphones that allow users to listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV shows and movies, play games and interact with Siri. Apple says that advanced sensors know when you are listening and...

Some AirPods users cite issues with AirPods charging...

Apple’s AirPods have roared out the door and are getting good reviews, but there may be some battery issues to contend with for some users.

A number of users have reported that the charging case that comes with the headphones isn’t holding Apple’s advertised 24 hours of charge. In theory, the charging case should only lose noticeable amounts of charge when the AirPods are low on battery and recharging within the case, and when users flip the pack open to check battery levels or otherwise activate Bluetooth with a connected Apple device.

Users who’ve reported issues have stated that the AirPods case drains more than 40 percent of available capacity in only a few hours, with the AirPods at 100 percent inside and minimal Bluetooth activation.

In the case of Reddit user “severinskulls”, the issue was resolved via a replacement AirPods case. In most cases, the AirPods themselves are not facing any shortened battery life issues.

Consumer Reports is standing by its findings regarding the 2016 MacBook Pro battery’s sporadic performance.

The publication’s director of electronics testing, Maria Rerecich, offered the following comment when asked about possible retesting:

In this case, we don’t believe re-running the tests are warranted for several reasons. First, as we point out in our original article, experiencing very high battery life on MacBooks is not unusual for us – in fact we had a model in our comparative tests that got 19 hours. Second, we confirmed our brightness with three different meters, so we feel confident in our findings using this equipment. Finally, we monitor our tests very closely. There is an entry logged every minute, so we know from these entries that the app worked correctly.

Apple’s Phil Schiller has stated that Consumer Reports’ test results do not match the company’s extensive lab tests nor field data.

In turn, the company has offered the following...

Two further patent applications published today and spotted by Patently Apple show that Apple continues to explore the idea of bringing a Watch-style Digital Crown to the iPad and iPhone. The original patent application was published back in July, and the two additional ones published today further refine the idea.

Apple has generally been moving away from physical controls on iDevices, the iPhone 7 replacing the mechanical Home button with a touch-sensitive one, and the iPhone 8 rumored to be embedding it into the display. We’re also expecting to see a near bezel-free design next year.

It was for this reason that the idea initially seemed unlikely …

OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini RAID the perfect...

If you have a new MacBook Pro and, like me, don’t want all your info stored only “in the cloud,” the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini RAID is a great solution for expanding your available local storage.

It’s a traditional hard disk drive, not a solid state drive (though the OWC products are also available in SSD configurations), but you get good bang for your buck. A 1TB OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini RAID costs US$228.99, the 2TB version (which I tested) is $268.99, and the 4TB model is $329.99. Compare those prices to the $1,200 Apple wants to expand a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar to a 2TB PCIe-based SSD.

The OWC HDD is ready for demanding mobile workflows. This bus-powered unit (no driver required) comes with a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C connection, designed with the latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros in mind. Running at 7200RPM, it’s plenty fast and spacious...

Family blames Apple’s FaceTime for their daughter’s...

A family grieving the death of their daughter wants Apple held accountable for encouraging distracted driving with its FaceTime app, in a lawsuit filed Friday in Santa Clara County Superior Court. FaceTime is a videoconferencing app that Apple includes with its iOS and Mac devices. 

James and Bethany Modisette claim the Cupertino, California-based company had the patent for a safer version of the app, but chose to make the less safe version available with the iPhone 6. They say Apple is responsible for their daughter’s death because of its “failure to install and implement the safer, alternative design for which it sought a patent in December 2008 (later issued by the United States Patent Office in April 2014) to “lock out” the ability of drivers to use FaceTime on an iPhone while driving.

The dispute arises from events that occurred on Dec. 24, 2014, when the Modisettes and their...

MacBook 2016 Review – It’s going back

I can’t think of the last time I returned a new Mac. I’m a textbook early adopter and have always purchased new Macs (especially notebooks) day and date when they come out.

Like most Mac users on the planet, I eagerly awaited Apple’s 2016 MacBook Pro refresh – 500 days in the making. I chose the 13-inch MacBook Pro (over the larger, 15-inch) to replace an aging MacBook Air 13-inch in my fleet.

I ordered mine (MBP 13.3 Space Gray, 256GB, S3136LL/A) on October 27, 2016 and it arrived on November 18, 2016.

My use case

Laptops, like mobile phones, are extremely personal devices. Your mileage will vary.

My 13-inch MBP  is primarily for use on my lap. I have a large monitor/keyboard/mouse setup (when I need it) at home and work, so I don’t need the largest screen possible on my laptop.

I also use it on the couch, in my recliner, at the kitchen table, coffee shop, shuttle bus,...

According to Times of India, Apple plans to make iPhones for the Indian market in Bengaluru, the home of India’s startup scene.

The facility will start production from next April, the article adds, quoting unnamed “industry sources.” Local manufacturing will help Apple price its phones competitively as full imports attract 12.5% additional duty, according to Times of India.

In July, it was announced that Apple had agreed to lease more than 40,000 square feet of office space in Bengaluru, India, where the company plans to set up a development center And in May, the company announced a new initiative to...

Apple sells iPhones all over the world, but it builds them in China with the help of manufacturing companies like Foxconn and Pegatron. A particular Foxconn facility in the city of Zhengzhou, China, is the subject of a lengthy report in The New York Times today. The report details the complex series of tax breaks, subsidies, and other incentives that makes the Zhengzhou facility so uniquely suited to Foxconn's and Apple's needs.

When I powered on the Inateck BP2109 Portable Bluetooth Speaker ($37.99, Amazon affiliate link) and heard the charming voice of this little portable speaker, I was hooked. Let's take a look!

Inateck BP2109 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. Photo ©2016, Steven Sande

Design

Bluetooth speakers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and the BP2109 is what I'd call a "midrange" speaker. It's not tiny nor tinny like some of the little cylindrical speakers we see, but it's not a heavy monster either. It's a black rectangular shape with dimensions of 2.56 x 2.56 x 6.85 inches (6.5 x 6.5 x 17.4 cm), weighing in at 17 ounces (481.9 grams).

Combing through confidential government records and a swath of interviews, Barboza explores the complexities technology companies like Apple have to go through to make manufacturing a success overseas. At the same time, the piece highlights the difficulties companies will encounter when attempting to bring manufacturing back to the U.S.

Android Users Are So Committed that Exploding Note 7...

An anonymous reader writes: Like loyalty to a political party or hometown sports team, smartphone users are extremely passionate about their choices -- a commitment that led many customers to stick with Samsung, despite the disaster of its downright dangerous Galaxy Note 7. Earlier this week, mobile analytics firm Flurry published data from the holiday season, showing that Apple saw twice as many device activations as rival Samsung. Despite Apple's continued commanding lead in holiday sales of smartphones and tablets, however, the numbers suggested Apple's share was lower and Samsung's was slightly higher from last year. Attempting to explain the trends shown in the data, NPD analyst Stephen Baker told The Wall Street Journal he believes that Android loyalists are committed, and even dangerous exploding batteries in the Galaxy Note 7 were not enough to push significant numbers of customers over to the iPhone. "Most of those who bought or wanted to buy a Note 7 opted for a different...

How China built iPhone City, and the complexities of...

David Barboza, New York Times:

The state-of-the-art facility was built several years ago to serve a single global exporter: Apple, now the world’s most valuable company and one of China’s largest retailers.

The well-choreographed customs routine is part of a hidden bounty of perks, tax breaks and subsidies in China that supports the world’s biggest iPhone factory, according to confidential government records reviewed by The New York Times, as well as more than 100 interviews with factory workers, logistics handlers, truck drivers, tax specialists and current and former Apple executives. The package of sweeteners and incentives, worth billions of dollars, is central to the production of the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling and most profitable product.

And:

It all centers on Zhengzhou, a city of six million people in an impoverished region of China. Running at full tilt, the factory here, owned and operated by Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn, can produce...

While I’ve been a photographer since I was 14, when my bedroom became a darkroom with a bed in the corner, I’m a complete beginner where video is concerned. The closest I’ve ever got to video production was putting together a few exceedingly basic cycling videos in iMovie to share with friends.

However, since we live in an age when tech writers are increasingly expected to be video producers, and I love to learn new skills, I’ve set myself a new goal for 2017. At some point in the year, I want to be able to produce professional-looking review videos that wouldn’t look out of place when viewed alongside the output of my extremely skilled colleagues. I’ve upgraded to Final Cut Pro, and I’ll be taking you guys along for the ride – beginning with the demo video for this review.

Kanex launches new Apple Watch accessories

Kanex will use CES 2017 (running Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada) to introduce the two newest members to its growing line of GoPower Apple Watch accessories. The products are the GoPower Watch Stand, a magnetic charging stand, and the GoPower Watch Mini, a portable keychain battery. 

Each member of the Kanex GoPower family has integrated into it the same magnetic inductive charging connector used in the Apple Watch. This allows users to leave their other charger at the office, in the car, or packed for traveling. 

The GoPower Watch Stand charges and displays both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch models. An additional USB port on the back simultaneously charges an iPhone, iPad, or any other device. 

The Kanex GoPower Watch Mini charges an Apple Watch on-the-go and completely cord free. This magnetic charging disc starts charging at first contact. With 1,000 mAh of power, its lightweight...

Mujjo’s full-grain leather sleeves are now available for the new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros. They sport a combination of full grain vegetable-tanned leather and felt.

The leather fold-over closure – with a “one snap button” on the right – provides a simple closure to keep your device secure. The rivets are lined to keep your MacBook from touching anything but soft, thick felt. The integrated storage compartments allow you to store documents, earplugs, and other essentials. As an additional feature, Mujjo designed a leather brand tag inside the sleeve to double as an integrated card pocket to store your essential cards.

The sleeves are waxed to extend durability, and treated with aniline oil to enrich color tons. Prices are approximately US$60 for the 13-inch sleeve and $65 for the 15-inch sleeve.

AirPods remain in short supply

AirPods remain in short supply. A Wednesday afternoon inventory check by Barron’s showed only one store in the country — in Bridgewater, N.J. — that currently has the wireless earphones in stock, while Apple.com displayed a six-week wait for delivery.

During a visit to the New York Stock Exchange yesterday, CEO Tim Cook called the wireless earbuds "a runaway success," and said Apple was "making them just as fast as we can.” Of course, without giving any sales figures, it’s hard to know exactly what his definition of a “runaway success” is. And — let’s be honest — when has a new Apple product not been in short supply and back-ordered?

AirPods are wireless headphones that allow users to listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV shows and movies, play games and interact with Siri. Apple says that advanced sensors know when you are listening and automatically play and...

Patent report: earphones with magnets, Siri and the...

Apple’s AirPods do a great job of staying in your ears during exercise, according to most users (though my experience has not been as positive), but Apple is looking into “earphone assemblies with magnets for anchoring to a user,” according to a new patent filing (number 20160381448). Yep, that’s right. Magnets.

Here’s one way it could work, according to the patent filing (warning: run-on sentence ahead): An earphone assembly could “include a hook member including a functional component, a body, an audio output component positioned at least partially within the body, a first magnet physically coupled to the body, and a second magnet, wherein, when the body is positioned against the user's ear in a functional position that is operative to direct sound from the audio output component into the user's ear, the first magnet and the second magnet are operative to be positioned on opposite sides of a wall of the ear and are operative to be magnetically attracted to...

Apple wants the government of India to relax labelling rules so that it doesn't have to print product-related information directly onto devices to avoid cluttering up their minimalist design, according to The Economic Times. That's one of the concessions Apple has sought after expressing its intention to start manufacturing in India, the article adds, quoting an unnamed official. 

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) forwarded the Cupertino, California-based company’s request to the Department of Revenue and Department of Electronics and Information Technology in November for consideration, said another official. Apple has also sought tax incentives that are being examined by the finance ministry. The India government currently provides subsidies for investments in special...

Apple leads in holiday device activations, down 5...

The Christmas gifts have been exchanged, the Chanukah ones are being given this week and it looks like Apple is leading the pack in terms of smartphone activations for the 2016 holidays.

This year, 44% of new phone and tablet activations were Apple devices with Samsung seeing 21%. While Samsung is slowly growing in popularity throughout the holiday season, up 1% from last year, Apple devices continue to be the gift to give. Holding the third and fourth positions for activations are Huawei and LG; which is remarkable, as both manufacturers do not have an individual device within the top 35 devices activated. Their high rank is likely due to the fact that they have wide variety of devices and affordable options (hundreds of phablet and medium phones) for consumers to choose from.

As expected, phablet devices (5″ to 6.9″ devices) continue to chomp away at the medium phone (3″ to 4.9″) market share, although medium phones saw the most activations during the week...

Apple has entered the world of academia.

Last week, the company published its first scholarly research paper with an article covering methods of improving recognition in computer vision systems, marking a new direction for the traditionally secretive company.

The paper, titled “Learning from Simulated and Unsupervised Images through Adversarial Training,” was submitted for review in mid-November before seeing publication through the Cornell University Library on Dec. 22.

The article arrives less than a month after Apple declared that it would no longer bar employees from publishing research relating to artificial intelligence.

In the article, Apple describes techniques of training computer vision algorithms to recognize objects using synthetic, or computer generated, images.

The work describes training models based solely on real-world images, wherein models leveraging synthetic data are often more efficient given that computer generated...

Consumer Reports has responded to our comment piece on its surprising battery test results for the 2016 MacBook Pro, stating that it stands by its findings.

I observed that the high-end numbers seemed hard to believe, hitting almost double the battery-life claimed by Apple, and I wondered whether some flaw in the test regimen had led to erroneous results. I emailed the organization suggesting that it might like to repeat the tests, but Consumer Reports’ director of electronics testing Maria Rerecich has replied saying that she sees no need to do so …

iPhone 7 not good enough to capitalise on Samsung’s...

Analysts say that device activations show that Apple wasn’t able to capitalise on the dramatic recall of Samsung’s Note 7. Despite the damage done to Samsung’s reputation, and the opportunity that created for Apple to persuade owners to switch platform, most Note 7 buyers ended up replacing it with another high-end Galaxy phone, said Stephen Baker, primary hardware analyst at tech industry research firm NPD.

Samsung was able to fend off other Android competition, and Apple, too, thanks to Apple’s own lack of a wowing product this year.

Mobile industry consultant Chetan Sharma agreed with NPD’s assessment …

Wally iPhone Wallet Case lets you ‘hide’ your cards...

Distil Union’s U.S.$44.99 Wally Wallet case combines a wallet and iPhone case in a handsome, minimal design. It’s a fine product in its class (I’ve tried the version for the iPhone 7 Plus), though I’ve still not streamlined my life enough to ditch my traditional wallet. 

I have more than three cards (ID, rewards, bank, etc.), as well as a few (too few) bills in my wallet, so I haven’t made the move to a wallet case yet. Also, whether you can comfortably place an iPhone 7 Plus with a Wally Wallet installed in your pockets is another matter. It fits okay in the lower pockets of my cargo pants, but is simply too big to fit comfortable in my blue jeans pockets. 

However, I do know some folks who have made the move to a wallet case. The Wally Wallet should suit their needs well. It sports an integrated leather pocket to hold about four cards and some folded bills— without looking like a...
