Google Pixel 2

Today, along with a new family of hardware products [link], we’re introducing Google Pixel 2. We want you to be able to ask even more from your phone—so we’re giving you the highest-rated camera ever that helps you take great pictures and interact with the world around you, all-day battery life, and an Assistant that understands you better and helps you get more done.

I’m not sure about Google’s camera claims, but features like Google Lens sound interesting.

BuildZoom article outlines costs, details of Apple...

Apple Park, the new headquarters of Apple in Cupertino, California, is an pricey project. The final price tag for the new campus has been estimated at near $5 billion, and now BuildZoom has captured information from building permits that shows the costs of each of the major buildings on the site.

Image via BuildZoom.

As you'd expect, the circular "spaceship" main building is the most expensive part of the facility, weighing in at $427,570,867. The Steve Jobs Theater has been described by most attendees at the September 12 product reveal as a "perfect" building, and the cost of the structure shows why. The 1,000-seat theater, lobby and hands-on area cost $179,437,885 -- the second most costly part of Apple Park.

Employees can enjoy the fitness center, which at $16,731,000 is...

Google Home Mini and Google Home Max

Today, we’re welcoming two new products to the Google Home family: Google Home Mini is small and mighty for hands-free help in every room. And Google Home Max is our biggest and best-sounding Google Home ever. They’re both radically helpful, and packed with the power of the Google Assistant, including some brand new features.

I haven’t seen or used either of these products, so I’ll reserve judgement. I have seen and listened to Apple’s HomePod and I know how good it sounds for music. There’s still a lot of questions to be answered with the HomePod, but I think I’ll wait until it’s released.

External Link: Yahoo: All 3 Billion Accounts...

Remember how Yahoo was hacked back in 2013? And how, in December 2016, the company said that 1 billion accounts had been compromised? Well, that turns out to have been an understatement. Yahoo is now admitting that every single one of the company’s 3 billion accounts was hacked. Word on the street is that the best response isn’t to delete your account, since it will eventually be recycled and could potentially be used against you. Instead, it’s better to change your password to something unique and enable two-factor authentication (which Yahoo calls Account Key). And if you ever used your Yahoo password on other Web sites, be sure to give them new, unique passwords too!

Camera+ 10 is released, adds depth editing, "...

Of all of the camera apps on the App Store, probably none has been around longer or been used as much as Camera+ ($2.99). The app, which boasts over 10 million users, has been developed by LateNiteSoft for a while, and the company has now taken over marketing of Camera+ from Taptaptap. Camera+ 10 is a major update that was released today, adding a pile of features to what was already a powerful app.

To begin with, Camera+ now takes advantage of the depth information that's available from dual-lens iPhones like the iPhone 7 and 8. The developer has added support for that depth information to most of the editing tools in "The Lab". A photo taken in Depth Mode -- what LateNiteSoft calls Apple's "Portrait Mode" -- can be edited based on depth. For example, a foreground item can be saturated with color, with the background being desaturated. The result? More emphasis on the foreground item....

EU takes Ireland to court over Apple taxes

The European Commission said on Wednesday it was taking Ireland to the European Court of Justice for its failure to recover up to 13 billion euros ($15.3 billion) of tax due from Apple Inc, a move labeled as “regrettable” by Dublin.

Both Apple and Ireland are appealing the ruling that any money is owed, so this seems a bit heavy-handed by the EU.

AWT TV Episode 23: October 3, 2017

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.  

Starting off tonight's episode, Steve apologizes for spacing out last week's episode... that's the problem with getting old. :-)  

But the big discussions have to do with several new Apple products. Marty starts off with the Apple TV 4K, which he bought...and returned. The device works well with Apple content, but as he noted, it had a tendency to take other content at lower resolutions and do a poor job of upscaling it to 4K, making the images almost unwatchable. 

Steve discussed the Apple Watch Series 3, which (if you've read his online review) is a solid improvement over the original Apple Watch. We discuss the cellular capabilities of the watch, the speed of it, and the incredible...

Safari for iPhone and iPad is an incredibly capable mobile web browser despite its simple, straightforward user interface. It is the browser of choice on iOS — in large part because it is the one pre-installed — but very few people know everything you can do with Safari.

We’ve rounded up all the Safari long press tips and tricks below, so you can take advantage of all the different shortcuts and features it offers.

The amazing story of an emerging GIF empire

Nicole Laporte, Fast Company, on GIFs and the Emmys:

Then came the night’s biggest, and most controversial, moment: Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer rolled a faux presidential podium onto the stage to deliver a send-up of his infamous “largest audience” speech he gave the day after President Trump’s inauguration. Immediately, the Giphy crew began to splice the scene into GIF form. Part of Giphy’s genius lies in not posting the obvious clip, so Spicer himself wasn’t of much interest. Rather, they surveyed the sea of shocked and bewildered faces in the audience, looking for gold. They found it in Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky, her entire body contorted into an OMG expression—eyes bulging, neck veins popping—as she craned out of her seat for a better view of the strange performance. Within minutes, the editors had the three-second clip uploaded onto Giphy. It began to trend almost immediately. A week after the show, it’d been viewed more than 13 million times.

John Voorhees just celebrated a major milestone in his life. He left his full time job as a lawyer to dedicated himself to his indie empire, as a developer, podcaster, and blogger. If you’ve ever had similar thoughts, this is an inspirational read.

One tiny nugget, where John talks about that moment when his app got Federico Viticci’s attention:

As the end of 2014 approached, I made a mad dash to finish Blink. By this point, I had managed to get Federico’s attention when I’d posted a late-night teaser video on Twitter of my URL schemes in action. Five minutes later, he sent me a direct message:

And Federico’s response:

Oh man, wow. Please make this universal and let me in the beta as soon as possible! ❤

This is a wonderful read. I have to say, stories like this make me really glad to be a part of this particular community.

MLB pilot program uses iPhone and Apple Watch for...

Fitz Tepper, TechCrunch:

Today the MLB announced that the Oakland Athletics are piloting a new NFC ticketing solution which lets fans enter the stadium by tapping their phone (or Apple Watch) to a ticket scanner – just like you’d do to use Apple Pay.


The pilot lasted for a six-game homestand starting Sept. 22nd after iOS 11 launched, and was the first time a professional sports event supported contactless tickets in Apple Wallet.

This is big for Apple Pay, Apple Watch, and Apple Wallet. I’d expect this to roll out to more, if not all teams next season. Just a matter of time before this moves to other sports, as well.

Smart profile of Apple’s commitment to silicon

Horace Dediu, Asymco:

The Apple A11 Bionic processor has 4.3 billion transistors, six cores and an Apple custom GPU using a 10nm FinFET technology. Its performance appears to be almost double that of competitors and in some benchmarks exceeds the performance of current laptop PCs.


Apple has come to the point where is dominates the processor space. But they have not stopped at processors. The effort now spans all manners of silicon including controllers for displays, storage, sensors and batteries. The S series in the Apple Watch the haptic T series in the MacBook, the wireless W series in AirPods are ongoing efforts. The GPU was conquered in the past year. Litigation with Qualcomm suggests the communications stack is next.

A name you’ll be hearing more and more of is the person who runs this silicon engineering effort for Apple, Johny Srouji. This is a great read.

Lots of intent numbers to process. Small survey size, but not hard to see this as representative.

Interesting to see how many people have their eye on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Laurene Powell Jobs buying big stake in Wizards,...

Washington Post:

Laurene Powell Jobs, a billionaire philanthropist, entrepreneur and president of the Emerson Collective, is buying a significant stake in Monumental Sports & Entertainment, a sprawling $2.5 billion complex that includes the NBA Wizards, NHL Capitals and Capital One Arena, people familiar with the deal said.


Through her sizable investment, Powell Jobs instantly commands an influential position in the male-dominated ownership circles of the “Big Four” professional sports leagues. Very few women’s names stand atop the ownership list of the NBA’s 30 franchises: Jeanie Buss of the Los Angeles Lakers, Ann Walton Kroenke of the Denver Nuggets and Gail Miller of the Utah Jazz.


Powell Jobs, 53, is one of the wealthiest women in the world, estimated to be worth about $20 billion. Much of that comes from her stock in Apple, the iconic company co-founded by her late husband Steve Jobs, who died in 2011. She also owns 4 percent...

If you had a Yahoo account in 2013, there’s a 100 percent chance that you were hacked.

Yahoo’s parent company has revealed that the massive data breach that occurred in August of 2013 affective all three billion Yahoo accounts that existed at the time.

Previously, Yahoo said the hack affected 1 billion accounts, or a third of all accounts. Verizon now says new intelligence suggests the attack was much larger, compromising all Yahoo accounts in 2013.

Following Verizon’s acquisition of Yahoo, Verizon received new intelligence and now believes, following an investigation, with the assistance of outside forensic experts, that all Yahoo user accounts were affected by the August 2013 theft.

Information stolen from the accounts included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, hashed passwords, and both encrypted and unencrypted security questions and answers. Clear text passwords, bank account information, and credit/debit card information...

Apple patent filing is for 3D user interface effects...

Future iOS and macOS devices could sport a 3D interface — or at least an interface with three-dimensional elements. The company has filed for a patent (number 9,778,815) for “three dimensional users interface effects on a display.”

Here’s Apple’s summary of the patent: “The techniques disclosed herein may use various sensors to infer a frame of reference for a hand-held device. In fact, with various inertial clues from accelerometer, gyrometer, and other instruments that report their states in real time, it is possible to track a Frenet frame of the device in real time to provide an instantaneous (or continuous) 3D frame-of-reference. In addition to--or in place of--calculating this instantaneous (or continuous) frame of reference, the position of a user's head may either be inferred or calculated directly by using one or more of a device's optical sensors, e.g., an optical camera, infrared camera, laser, etc. With knowledge of the 3D frame-of-reference for the display and/...

Apple changes the definition of ‘on’ and ‘off’ in...

During the iOS 11 beta I noticed a strange bug: I’d turn off Wi–Fi in Control Center and it would turn itself back on. After doing this multiple times, I filed a bug. Turns out that it wasn’t a bug, it was working as intended.

This is problem for me because I turn Wi–Fi off when I leave the office so that my iPhone won’t try to connect to the building’s Wi–Fi (or that of a passing Google bus). When your iPhone can’t connect reliably to Wi-Fi, it leaves the device in a state of limbo and data packets stop flowing.

When I leave the office I flip up Control Center and turn off Wi–Fi. When my iPhone would inevitably stop receiving data, I’d check Wi–Fi and notice that it had been turned back on. It’s Wi–Fi disobedience, essentially.

Rather than giving us a feature that many have requested (3D Touch the Wi–Fi icon and select from available networks) Apple nerfed the feature and made it worse.

From the report: Incredibly reliable leaker Evan Blass has published pictures and details of Google's upcoming Pixel 2 smartphones on VentureBeat. He has also confirmed that neither device will feature a headphone jack, which means users will have to rely on a USB-C adapter or Bluetooth. It also means Google will no longer be able to put out Pixel ads that take sly swipes at the iPhone's missing port. Blass says both Pixel handsets will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset -- the same one found in the Galaxy S8, the LG V30, and other 2017 flagships -- not a faster Snapdragon 836 processor as originally...

External Link: Philips Adds HomeKit Support to Hue...

In iOS 11, Apple allows device manufacturers to retroactively add HomeKit support to existing home automation devices that rely natively on other standards. Philips is taking advantage of that change and has added HomeKit support to the Hue Smart Tap Switch, Hue Smart Dimmer Switch, and Hue Smart Motion Sensor. HomeKit support does require a second-generation Hue Smart Bridge, but all three of those devices need the Hue Smart Bridge to operate anyway. In theory, you should be able to use these Hue switches and sensors to trigger any other HomeKit device.

Former Intel CEO Paul Otellini Dies At 66

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Engadget: Paul Otellini, Intel's previous CEO, died in his sleep on Monday, the company announced this morning. He was 66. Otellini served as Intel's fifth chief executive from 2005 through 2013, and leaves behind a legacy of the company's dominance in x86 processors. Notably, he also worked with Apple as it moved away from PowerPC chips and adopted Intel's wares. After retiring in 2013, Otellini revealed one major regret during his tenure: not working hard enough to get Intel's chips in the iPhone. Consequently, Intel mostly missed on the smartphone revolution.

Otellini joined Intel in 1974 and served various roles throughout his career, including chief operating officer from 2003 to 2005. He would go on to spend almost 40 years at the company. He was an intriguing choice as CEO, since he was the company's first non-engineer to hold that role.

iOS 11 is barely two weeks old, and it’s already received its second update. Apple on Tuesday released iOS 11.0.2, one that you’ll want to install if you’re a frequent user of FaceTime or often make phone calls.

iOS 11.0.2, according to the release notes, “Fixes an issue where crackling sounds may occur during calls for a small number of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices.” The update also fixes a problem that causes photos to be hidden, and fixes an issue with S/MIME encrypted emails, where attachments would not open.

Before installing the update, back up your iPhone. The update won’t install unless you have a Wi-Fi connection. When that’s done, you can install the update by tapping the Settings app and then General > Software Update. Then tap the Download and Install link at the bottom of the release notes. (For some reason, Download and Install was dimmed for me, which meant I wasn’t able to activate the installation even though I was connected to Wi-Fi. I had to...

When in the Messages app, users can tap the YouTube iMessage app to view a list of recently watched videos or tap the "Search YouTube" field to look for a specific video topic. Tapping on the video thumbnail places it right into the Message stream where it's possible to add a comment or just hit the Send button.

The Message recipient just needs to tap the app to start watching the video right in Messages. There's also an "Open App" link if the user would like to view the video in the YouTube app (see image below).

It's not clear how long this deal will last, so if you're interested, buy one sooner rather than later.

Accessory designer Twelve South always steps up to the plate when there’s an Apple-related problem to be solved. In the case of the new CaddySack ($49.99), the problem solved is what to do with all of those cables and adapters that are a necessity with the USB-C MacBook and MacBook Pro. 


As part of the iconic BookBook family, the CaddySack looks like a leather-bound book. The leather exterior is a deep chocolate color, embossed on the spine with decorative touches and gold-leaf (probably faux…) highlights. Like the other BookBook accessories, the CaddySack is classy and well-made.

Open the zipper that closes the case with the leather zipper pull, and the interior is just as nice. A black and gray herringbone material lines the interior, while bright red elastic bands expand to keep everything tightly in place during transit. There’s...

macOS market share up, iOS down (slightly) in...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for macOS rose while iOS dipped (slightly)  last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.35% of the global market share in August, up from from 5.94% percent in July (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 90.61%.

iOS had 32.34% in September. This compares to 65.53% for Android, 0.87% for Windows Phone, and 0.49% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.
