Why Apple Really Has to Build its Own UHDTV

There's been a division of thinking in the past about Apple and a next generation TV experience. Will Apple simply introduce a new Apple TV, just another black box? Or will Apple make its own UHDTV? Some recent evidence suggests that Apple will make an actual TV.

Apple is seriously invested in developing VR-based gaming and/or interfaces, new job listings suggest. One calls for a game engineer with experience not just in VR but the latest game engines, with the purpose of creating software "combining state-of-the-art physics-based world simulation, visuals and Virtual Reality to enable Apple's development of next-generation product." Another listing asks for an app engineer familiar with the Oculus Rift VR headset as well as the Leap Motion gesture controller....

Revenues from online shopping on “Cyber Monday” surged 15.4 percent higher than last year, setting a new all time peak in U.S. ecommerce, with online mobile sales overwhelmingly driven by customers wielding Apple devices.

This doesn’t really surprise me that much. People seem to be very comfortable using their iOS devices for many things, including purchasing items from a variety of stores. This is something I see that sets Apple apart from its competitors—people have confidence in its products, which leads to confidence in doing other tasks, like shopping.

Airbus captures five $300m A350 jetliners flying...

Petapixel:

This September, Airbus took to the skies to capture photos of five of its massive test and development A350–900s. The photo shoot was meant to celebrate the certification of the company’s latest twin-engine, wide-body jetliner.

It was also probably one of the most expensive photo shoots we’ve ever come across.

At a cool $300 million for each of the five A350–900s, the cost of the subjects alone totals $1.5 billion dollars.

Any five element photo shoot is complicated. An airborne photo shoot is a thousand times more complicated. Doing it with five massive, quarter of a million-pound aircraft is utterly remarkable. Great video.

Review: Evollve Ozobot

We first saw Evollve's Ozobot ($50) at CES 2014, but we honestly weren't very excited. The tiny robot is designed to follow lines across a surface — a digital line on an iPad, or a line drawn on any piece of paper. But there's more to it than just that: Ozobot also reads the color of a line, and changes colors to blue, green, or red. Switching between these colors, users can input codes for the bot to follow. For instance, a short blue-green-blue dot combo means "turbo," while blue-red-green means "turn right." More advanced codes on digital screens use altering color combinations. Essentially, Ozobot lets users experiment with basic programming by way of a small robot. Two apps have been released so far for Ozobot. While one Ozobot retails for $50, we tested the $100 double pack, which includes both white and black Ozobots.{/exp:char_limit}

License to spy

Medium:

Every day tens of thousands of high-speed optical recognition cameras silently snap digital photos of plates, capturing in milliseconds an image of each tag and sometimes the driver as well. They are difficult to see if you’re not looking for them, but the sleek devices can be found clamped to patrol cars and the vehicles of debt chasers as well as mounted along streets and highways and in parking garages and shopping centers. A single reader, once activated, works furiously without assistance, capturing thousands of plate scans per shift.

But there are bugs.

We are being spied on in ways we don’t imagine, for reasons we can’t fathom and by “authorities” with little to no oversight.

After years of vowing not to bring Firefox to the iPhone and iPad, Mozilla is changing its tune—and is presumably willing to work with Apple’s rules.

“We need to be where our users are so we’re going to get Firefox on iOS,” Mozilla Release Manager Lukas Blakk wrote on Twitter. TechCrunch believes he was paraphrasing Jonathan Nightingale, Mozilla’s Vice President for Firefox, who revealed the plans during an internal company event.

Mozilla isn’t a complete stranger to iOS. Four years ago, the organization released Firefox Home, which synced bookmarks and tabs from other devices but was not a full-fledged browser. Mozilla shut down the app in 2012. While Mozilla now lets users sync their tabs and bookmarks with an online login, iOS users have been left out, potentially making Mozilla less attractive as a whole.

Under the terms of the deal, which kicks off Friday, a customer can bring a current AT&T or Verizon bill to a Sprint store and store representatives will set up a new plan that is half of the service portion of that bill (the cost of calls, texting and data).

Now DiskAid has become iMazing ($30), as what would have been DiskAid 7.1 is now iMazing 1.1. Redesigned with an iTunes 12-style UI, iMazing boasts complete iOS 8 compatibility, super-simple backups, and the ability to navigate your iPhone, iPad, or iPod’s hidden file system without the use of jailbreaks or other hacks.

An Australian court has rejected Apple’s appeal against the country’s refusal to allow it to trademark the term ‘App Store,’ reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The Registrar of Trade Marks refused registration of Apple’s “app store” trademark in March last year because it was too descriptive. Apple then appealed this decision in the Federal Court.

On Wednesday, Justice Yates ruled that Apple’s appeal be dismissed and that it pay the court costs of the Registrar of Trade Marks.

The ruling means that Apple is free to continue to use the name, but it cannot prevent other companies from doing the same. The court ruled that consumers understood that the term App Store referred to any online source of apps for any platform, and therefore there was no danger of consumers being misled into...

These companies—which use words like “neuroplasticity” to discuss the science behind these apps—claim that you can “improve your brain health,” “improve focus, speaking skills, processing speed, memory, math skills,” and “train memory, attention, and more.”

I demoed Alpine’s CarPlay-equipped aftermarket stereo, the iLX–007, in sunny Santa Monica, literally next door to the Hotel California. Yup, the place from the Eagles song, where “you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.” And that’s an apt location to try out this stereo, which, unlike the Pioneer AVIC–8000NEX, is CarPlay only, and thus iPhone-only. You could check out any other phones you like, but you could never leave your iPhone—unless you want to reduce your $800 CarPlay unit to a lowly AM/FM radio.

Apple loses appeal on 'App Store'...

On Wednesday in Sydney, Australia, a court ruled against Apple in an appeal by the iPhone maker to overturn a previous ruling that denied the company a trademark on the term "app store," despite the fact that Apple had clearly invented the term back in 2008. The fundamental problem Apple has had in trying to secure a trademark on the term is two-fold: the word "app" as short for "application" had been coined far earlier by others, and the burgeoning popularity of the phrase almost from the get-go has turned it into a generic description....

“Do they still exist?” Steve Jobs takes jabs at Real...

The ten-year-old lawsuit over whether Apple violated antitrust law by locking the iPod to its own iTunes software has finally gone to trial. In its first day before a jury, the case has yielded several new emails between Apple executives as well as a videotaped deposition of Steve Jobs, which was recorded in 2011 shortly before he died.

In the video, according to Reuters, Jobs was asked if he had heard of Real Networks, the company behind the RealPlayer software Apple had blocked from working with the iPod. Jobs took a quick jab at the music distribution rival and asked, “Do they still exist?”

A new study that monitored US holiday shopping from mobile devices between Thanksgiving through to Cyber Monday showed results exactly in line with similar surveys from last summer, noting that Apple iOS devices accounted for about 78 percent of orders, with Android accounting for only 21.6 percent of online sales from mobile devices. Analytics firm Custora noted the consistency between holiday and non-holiday buying patterns, with iOS and Android showing the same respective percentages last summer as well....

Swift Performance

With all the excitement around Apple's new Swift programming language we were curious whether Swift is suitable for compute-intensive code, or whether it's still necessary to "drop down" into a lower-level language like C or C++.

To find out we ported three Geekbench 3 workloads from C++ to Swift: Mandelbrot, FFT, and GEMM. These three workloads offer different performance characteristics:

  • Mandelbrot is compute bound.
  • GEMM is memory bound and sequentially accesses large arrays in small blocks.
  • FFT is memory bound and irregularly accesses large arrays.

The source code for the Swift implementations is available on GitHub.

We built both the C++ and Swift workloads with Xcode 6.1. For the Swift workloads we used the -Ofast -Ounchecked optimization flags, enabled SSE4...

Preparing for “Chip-and-PIN” cards in the United...

The New York Times:

The technology, which has a microchip in the card and requires consumers to enter a PIN at checkout, has been required in Europe and some countries elsewhere for about a decade. Now, Americans retailers and banks are preparing for the wide release of the technology, in a wholesale security upgrade that will cost billions of dollars. The change will start next year and is expected to take several years to complete.

It can’t happen fast enough. Most of the rest of the world is already protected by this tech.

Playing with fire to shoot a new burning log video

The Globe and Mail:

The first Shaw Fire log – Canada’s answer to what had been a sensation in New York since the 1960s – dates back to 1986; a way to broadcast content on a round-the-clock channel in Edmonton so employees could take Christmas off. Every year, Shaw’s vice-president of community programming invited his employees to his house for a party, and they taped a new fire log, which ran on a continuous loop over the holiday. It caught on elsewhere.

I’d be embarrassed to tell you how often this video plays on my TV during the holidays. Thanks to Lesley for the story link.

On Monday morning, the FBI seized 20 boxes of documents pertaining to a $1.3 billion iPad program from the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), according to the Los Angeles Times. The program, which was intended to give iPads to every student, teacher, and campus administrator of the nation’s second-largest school district, has met with many catastrophic difficulties, and this latest federal investigation led the new superintendent of the school system to shelve the project indefinitely on Tuesday.

The program first hit a bump in the road back in 2013 when a number of students “hacked” the iPads—which is to say they deleted profile information that designated the user as a...

The Defense Ministry has since denied the report from the newspaper Izvestia, but the bill has again opened the question of whether foreign-made smartphones and tablets are secure....

FBI Seizes Los Angeles Schools' iPad Documents

An anonymous reader writes: The Los Angeles Unified School District had a bold (and expensive) plan to outfit its students with top-of-the-line technology: its 650,000 students will be given Apple iPads to use for school work. The cost? $1 billion. Unfortunately for them, the project has been plagued with problems. Now, the FBI has seized 20 boxes of documents regarding the district's procurement practices and confirmed an investigation. "Hundreds of students initially given the iPads last school year found ways to bypass security installations, downloading games and freely surfing the Web. Teachers complained they were not properly trained to instruct students with the new technology. And questions were raised after emails were disclosed showing that then-Superintendent John Deasy had been in communication with vendors Apple and Pearson before the contracts were put to bid."

With rapidly declining market share in the web browser race since Google Chrome was released in late 2008, Mozilla appears set on capturing the hundreds of millions of iOS users with a Mobile Safari alternative. “We need to be where our...

Google's Made With Code initiative has unveiled its latest project, Holiday Lights. Made with Code is a project from Google to help encourage girls to explore coding and development, which is an initiative I have a well-documented soft spot for as well. This new project uses Blockly to create and animate a pattern for the lights seen during the National Christmas Tree Lighting this year. You can see the basics of the tree and how your choices of color and animation will look, then you can save your pattern. It's a fun way to learn a bit about code and maybe see your pattern used live! As a person who has spent more time than I care to admit on trying to program the lights at my house, my biggest concern here is how to get my hands on the code so I can do this in my front yard.

Gorilla Glass 4 and a new motion sensor might be the thing that saves your iOS devices from nicks, dents and scratches in the future.

Per Macworld and Forbes, Apple has recently published a patent that covers a “protective mechanism for an electronic device” that would use a motion sensor to tell the processor when your phone is in a freefall. The processor would then “alter the center of mass of the electronic device” so your phone wouldn’t fall on its most sensitive parts like the screen or camera.

“The protective mechanism may vary the angular momentum and/or orientation of...

It seems Apple has ordered yet another developer to make changes to his app’s Notification Center widget even after it was approved for sale and adopted by countless users. Previously the company’s indecisiveness on the purpose of widgets led to an app called Launcher being pulled from sale, and a similar fate was almost met by the popular pCalc widget until Apple changed its mind (again).

The widget in question today was created by developer Greg Pierce and is part of the popular note-taking app Drafts. The app allowed users to create new entries in the app by pressing a button in the widget, which then opened the app’s composer (in the app, of course).
