Another sign that Apple Watch is completely...

Lauren Thomas, CNBC:

Fossil Group’s latest financials show the watchmaker is clearly hurting from Apple’s encroachment into the traditional hardware sector.

Shares of Fossil closed down more than 20 percent Wednesday, following the company’s dismal first-quarter earnings report.

“Our results for the first quarter … continue to reflect a challenging retail environment and a watch category undergoing significant change,” Fossil CEO Kosta Kartsotis said on the earnings conference call.

Results like these fly in the face of naysayers, support the notion that Apple Watch is entrenched and is solidifying its hold on this market.

Apple patent describes using iMessage to talk to...

An Apple patent published today describes using iMessages instead of voice to interact with Siri in environments when speaking wouldn’t be practical.

This could span both ends of the spectrum, from very noisy environments like construction sites, where your voice cannot be heard, to very quiet ones like libraries, where you would disturb people by speaking. It would also be useful for people who don’t feel comfortable talking to their phone in public …

Apple looks to incorporate Siri further into Messages

Apple wants to incorporate Siri — its “personal digital assistant” even more into its Messages app on macOS and iOS devices. The company has filed for a patent (number 20170132019) for an “intelligent automated assistant in a messaging environment.”

In the patent filing, Apple says that it would desirable to implement a digital assistant (Siri) in a messaging environment (Messages). The messaging platform can enable multiple modes of input (e.g., text, audio, images, video, etc.) to be sent and received. A user request can define a request to Siri using a combination of inputs (e.g., image and text). 

Apple says this can increase the functionality and capabilities of the digital assistant,  providing a richer interactive experience between a user and a digital assistant. What’s more, a digital assistant in a message environment can enable the digital assistant to be a participant in a multi-party conversation where the benefits associated with the digital assistant...

Apple may be working on the next generation of the...

Apple may be planning a new version of the late, lamented MacSafe adapter. The company has filed for a patent (number 20170133787) for “flexible and breakaway mechanisms for connections.” And it might even be illuminated.

With the 2016 MacBook Pro line, Apple ditched the beloved MagSafe connector, which disengaged with the slightest amount of pressure. This saved many Mac laptops from a disastrous plummet when someone accidentally snagged the power cable.

The patent filing is for connectors that can withstand force and are easy to manufacture. They may include connecting portions that may move relative to other portions of the connectors to absorb force. The connectors may be designed to partially break in order to protect devices that may be connected to. They may be further designed to break in a controlled manner to prevent springs or other components that may be under compression from being dislodged from the connectors.

In the patent filing, Apple notes...

Apple plans major expansions at its Arizona and...

Apple is looking to beef up its services backend with major expansions at existing data centers in Arizona and Nevada, including a $1 billion investment that doubles its commitment to a Reno Technology Park facility, according to AppleInsider.

Construction of a previously planned "phase 2" addition to Apple's Mesa, Arizona, data center is underway. And the tech giant is expected to further increase the size of its Arizona data center in the near future as part of a "phase 3" expansion, adds AppleInsider.

Apple is repurposing GT Advanced's former sapphire plant in Mesa to produce cabinets for its other data centers. The nature of the product is not for end users but for other global data centers what will be supported from the site.

Additionally, Apple may purchase half of a city block in downtown Reno, Nevada for a 30,...

Apple’s interest in cars dates back to at least 2008, when Steve Jobs and ‘father of the iPod’ Tony Fadell discussed the idea. Project Titan appeared to be the company gearing up to finally create an Apple Car, but things seem to have changed since the first reports.

Apple has acknowledged it is exploring the area, but of course declined to say anything specific about its plans. Tim Cook joked about dodging the question back in the spring of...

Sonnet previews the Mac compatible Echo Express SE...

Sonnet Technologies has announced the launch of the Echo Express SE III, the newest member of the company's Echo Express family of Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express (PCIe) expansion systems. 

With full support for Thunderbolt 3, the Echo Express SE III is a compact desktop device that enables the use of up to three high-performance PCIe cards with Macs equipped with Thunderbolt 3 ports. Users of Macs equipped with 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, such as the new MacBook Pro, are able to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 2750 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth to support the most demanding, highest-performance adapter cards, according to Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies.

The Echo Express SE III features three x8 PCIe 3.0 slots, accommodates full-height, half-length+ (up to 7.75 inches long) PCIe cards, and connects them to one of the Mac's Thunderbolt 3 ports via the included 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable.

In-cabin notebook ban may soon apply to flights from...

The Department of Homeland Security may be expanding its notebook ban, forbidding notebooks in the cabins of all flights from Europe to the United States. News of the expanded ban, which could be announced as soon as Thursday, came from European security officials.

Passengers flying from Europe to the United States may need to store their computers in their checked luggage. The Department of Homeland Security has yet to announce a final decision on this matter, with Security Secretary John Kelly planning to discuss the matter with senators in a classified briefing on Thursday.

The DHS offered the following comment:

“No final decisions have been made on expanding the restriction on large electronic devices in aircraft cabins; however, it is under consideration. DHS continues to evaluate the threat environment and will make changes when necessary to keep air travelers safe.”

The notebook and tablet in-cabin ban was first announced in March. The ban...

If you’re interested in writing Visual Studio code on your Mac, this might be for you.

The M4 Stand for iPhone isn’t very practical, but it...

To be honest, Elago’s M4 Stand for the iPhone has little practical value, unlike the W3 Stand for Apple Watch, but it is kinda cool. You’ll have to decide if you want to spend $34.99 for a “kinda cool” case for the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 (alas, there are no Plus sizes available).

The M4 Stand’s gimmick is that you slide your iPhone into the stand (5.8 inches long, 4.3 inches wide, and 5 inches tall), “transforming it into an old Apple monitor.” Well, actually, the set-up resembles a “squished” version of an early, beige Mac. There’s a pass-through rail underneath the stand for connecting your Lightning cable for charging.

The M4 Stand is made with scratch-free silicone to prevent damage to your iPhone and cable. The material provides enough weight that...

MenuMate is your ‘menu bar everywhere’

When I click the scroll-wheel button on my mouse (or use the keyboard shortcut I've assigned it, Control + z), a fabulous little app called MenuMate puts the entire menu bar for whichever application I’m currently using right beneath my mouse pointer.

Here’s what it looks like with Microsoft Word:

It’s a one-trick pony to be sure, but it’s a damn good trick, and it costs a mere $4.99 (for a single license for up to three computers).

So, if you've ever thought it takes too long to mouse over to the menu bar, or wished you could make the menu bar come to you, be sure and check out MenuMate.

TSMC will be the sole supplier of A11 chips for the upcoming iPhone refresh.

The A11 chip is also expected to be included in the iPhone 7s spec bump phones, which will seemingly use the same chassis design as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, although this is not universally supported by the rumors.

Linksys jumps into the cable modem market and...

Cable companies can deliver very fast broadband service because the coaxial cable they use offers so much more bandwidth than the twisted-pair cable that DSL service relies on. And the cable companies will happily rent you the equipment you need, on top of the fee they charge you for internet service. But they can’t force you to use their equipment, so router manufacturers are building cable modems you can purchase. Linksys jumped into that market today with its CG7500, a two-in-one DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem/router.

Hackintosh: AMD or Nvidia for Final Cut Pro X? [...

If you’re looking to build a Hackintosh that can serve as a competent Windows gaming rig on the side, then a build powered by an Nvidia GPU is a good choice. In our most recent Hackintosh build, we paired an Intel i7 6700k with Nvidia’s fastest gaming GPU, the 1080 Ti.

The results weren’t all that surprising. Performance was good in a macOS environment even when using Nvidia’s beta web drivers. Performance was a lot better, though, in a Windows environment, where Pascal GPUs can really thrive.

If you’re interested in building a Hackintosh solely for video editing, however, then an Nvidia-powered GPU option might not be the best choice. Sure, Nvidia GPUs with their CUDA cores are generally superior for editing in an Adobe workflow,...

Review: The Amazing Hover Camera Passport

There are literally hundreds…if not thousands…of drones available for those who want to capture images taken from the air. The Hover Camera Passport (US$499.95) is something different; think of it as a camera that it happens to fly autonomously or under your control rather than a "normal" drone.

I was enthralled by this little drone when it first appeared as a self-crowdfunded pre-order item last fall. Apparently I wasn’t the only person who was excited about this device; it quickly went into production and is now sold exclusively at Apple stores. In fact, some Apple retail outlets are actually doing in-store demos of the Hover Camera Passport, as it’s safe to fly it indoors.

Let’s get some misconceptions out of the way. First, this is not competition to “semi-pro” drones like the DJI Mavic Pro or similar devices. It’s made to be a small and very safe aerial camera with limited...

We all know Google search is the best way to find news, concert clips, and funny cat GIFs, but when it comes to local happenings, it can be hit or miss. But a new feature baked into Google’s search tools on your phone is designed to fill up your social calendar.

In the latest update to the Google app on Android and iOS (as well as anywhere else you can find a search bar on your phone), you should begin seeing a new interface for local events. For example, when you search for “concerts this weekend” you’ll see a new Events tab at the top of your search results.

You’ll be able to quickly view events happening today, tomorrow, or next week, all presented in a calendar-style view that lets you easily see the date, time, and location. Tapping “more events” will expand the view to see additional dates, and you can tap again for more details or to buy tickets.

Slashdot Asks: Which Tech Giant You Can't Live...

In this week's column of NYTimes, Farhad Manjoo writes about the five largest technology companies in the world: Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet, the parent company of Google. As he notes, these companies have become the most powerful firms of any kind, essentially inescapable for any consumer or business that wants to participate in the modern world. This brings us to two questions: 1. Of the five aforementioned companies, tell us one whose services you don't need for work and for personal use. (In short, the company that doesn't matter to you.) Here's a poll where you can cast your vote. 2. On the same note, which company's services and products you can't ditch (for work / personal use)?

The ‘iPhone 8’ will have to displace the iPhone 6S...

According to ScientiaMobile, the upcoming “iPhone 8” will have to displace the iPhone 6s to become the world’s most used smartphone. The research group’s “Mobile Overview Report (MOVR)” notes that the iPhone 6S was the most used smartphone model in the world despite the iPhone 7 launch in September 2016.

According to ScientiaMobile, the iPhone 6S became the most used in February 2017 and is now at almost 8% of all global smartphone browsing. In comparison, the iPhone 6 peaked in popularity a year earlier, February 2016, at 14.6%, 488 days after launch. 

Today the iPhone 6S usage continues to grow despite the iPhone 7 launch. The iPhone 7 user-base is still on an upward trajectory, ending March at 3.6%, earning third place among iPhones. Given the size of the iPhone 6 user-base, “the upgrade potential for the iPhone 7 and 8 is significant if Apple can retain customers,” says ScientiaMobile.

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, the iPhone 7 was the world’s best-selling smartphone model in the first quarter of 2017. The research group estimates that Apple shipped 21.5 million units and captured 6% marketshare worldwide in the first quarter (Q1) of 2017.

“The iPhone 7 is by far the world’s most popular smartphone model, due to a compelling blend of user-friendly design, extensive supporting apps, and widespread retail availability for the device,” says Juha Winter, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics. “The iPhone 7 Plus, with its bigger screen and higher pricing, shipped 17.4 million units for second place and 5% marketshare worldwide in Q1 2017. Apple today accounts for two of the world’s top five smartphone models.”

Strategy Analytics says global smartphone shipments reached 353.3 million units in Q1 2017. Samsung managed to get two models in the top five during Q1 2017. The Galaxy J3 captured 2% global smartphone marketshare and...

New case listing hints at a 10.5-inch iPad Pro intro...

Urban Armor Gear appears to be preparing a case for the rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro. A stock system at an Apple Authorized Reseller shared with 9to5Mac shows a UAG Metropolis Folio Case “for iPad 10.5-inch” in three color combinations, with availability listed as June 2017. So we may see a new model iPad Pro introduced at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference.

A 10.5-inch iPad is expected to target education and business sectors. The beauty of the new size of Apple tablet (if it’s a reality) is that it’s the same size as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro but with a resolution of 2,024-by-1,668 (compared to the current 2,048-by-1,536) because of a smaller bezel. This works well for Apple because it means 9.5-inch iPad Pro accessories like the Smart Keyboard can be used with 10.5-inch version.

Mafia 3 blasts onto the Mac tomorrow

By Ric Molina of MacGamer

Aspyr has confirmed the final release date for Mafia 3’s Mac version. It’s coming tomorrow, May 11, and it will support Apple’s Metal API (application programming interface).

Metal is a core graphics technology that gives apps near-direct access to the GPU [graphics processing unit]. This means faster and more efficient rendering performance across the system. Metal bypasses the OpenGL framework — which on macOS is slooow, dragging high-end Mac apps and games down in comparison to their Windows counterparts. Apple must ensure that Metal doesn't lose its momentum.

Here's how Mafia 3 is described: “It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for.

“Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set...

I got rejected by Apple Music — So I redesigned it…

Visual designer and Northwestern University student Jason Yuan:

Earlier this year I applied and interviewed for a graphic design internship at Apple Music (an opportunity of a lifetime), and was turned down with a very kind letter stating that although they liked my work, they wanted to see more growth and training.

Jason’s solution? Redesign Apple Music:

What you’ll find below is a case study offering potential solutions to address some of Apple Music’s problems, as well as ideas for future development. My process was guided by qualitative user research, Apple’s official Design Principles, and my own designer intuition.

To me, there’s always value in a project like this, value in identifying flaws in an existing design, as well as in prototyping fresh design approaches. Feedback like this is a gift to the Apple Music team. Hope someone there takes a look.

The Fifth Avenue Apple Cube has vanished

Gothamist:

The famed Fifth Avenue glass Apple Cube is no more, at least for the foreseeable future. Though the cube existed just yesterday, this morning tipster Josh Weiner spotted a gaping chasm by the GM Building where the monument to interminable lines for the Genius Bar once stood.

And:

Apple apparently spent $2 million to take down the cube to help facilitate its massive expansion at the 767 Fifth Avenue space—the store plans to swell from 32,000 to 77,000 square feet in order to accommodate more tourists and their unending questions about iPads. Apple has temporarily taken up residence at the former FAO Schwarz space inside the GM Building, so instead of being full of expensive toys for children, it is now full of expensive toys for adults, and also children.

Click to the page, check out the picture of the Apple Cube deconstruction from above. Note the caption. Nice.

Apple acquires sleep tracking company Beddit

The company brought on sleep researcher Rob Raymann to its health team more than three years ago, according to LinkedIn.

Apple Support app updated to 1.1, adds new...

This could come in handy.

Apple has just released version 1.1 of its Apple Support app, the new version allowing users to schedule device repairs at Authorized Service Providers, not just Apple store Genius Bars. The integration greatly increases the number of service locations available to customers and is a welcome addition for users living in rural areas where the nearest Apple store might be hours away.

Such a change brings the app more in line with Apple’s web site, which began displays authorized repair providers as of December. The app offers users a list of repair venues that can be sorted by location, distance and available appointment. The scheduling process is identical to reserving a spot at the Genius Bar, with authorized facilities presenting open dates and times which can then selected by the customer.

In addition to the scheduling system modification, the app now supports Genius Bar reservations at Apple retail locations in China, Hong Kong,...
