‘Real people’ do not want secure communications

Amber Rudd (The UK Home Secretary) has said “real people” do not want secure end-to-end encryption on messaging services.

In response, Renate Samson Chief Executive of Big Brother Watch said:

“Suggesting that people don’t really want security from their online services is frankly insulting, what of those in society who are in dangerous or vulnerable situations, let alone those of us who simply want to protect our communications from breach, hack or cybercrime,” she said.

She’s making an argument that fits her agenda. I don’t believe for a minute that people want less security on anything, especially these days.

Costly cyber attacks are having a bigger impact on corporate earnings and are becoming a fact of life for companies as Oreo cookie maker Mondelez, drug maker Merck and others said that a destructive “worm” attack in the last week of the second quarter disrupted operations.

It’s not just the immediate fallout of an attack that hits companies, it’s the earnings too.

Microsoft has announced that Windows Subsystem for Linux will emerge as a fully supported part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update when the OS ships later this year.

With the updated status, WSL can be leveraged as a day-to-day developer toolset, he said. Microsoft will continue to respond to WSL bugs and issues.

We see so many wireless speakers here at Apple World Today that it takes something special to turn our heads. Fortunately, we were given the chance to review a wireless speaker that not only has very cool vintage styling, but some features not found on other speakers. The Lofree Poison M (about US$70) began a Kickstarter campaign this morning and it surpassed its funding goal in minutes. Here’s our detailed review of the Lofree Poison M.

Design

The design is the big thing with the Poison M. It rocks a chrome grille on the front, and comes in four colors: Venetian Red, Pure White, Olive Green, and my personal favorite, Turquoise Blue. I grew up in an era when turquoise appliances were the big thing, so I just HAD to try one out in turquoise.

Apple Pay expanding to four new countries by the end...

One of the throwaway comments from yesterday afternoon's Apple earnings call (link to recording) was actually big news: Apple Pay will expand to Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the United Arab Emirates by year's end, meaning that the service will be available in 20 countries.

Apple CFO Luca Maestri made the comment during the conference call but didn't offer rollout dates for Apple Pay availability. However, he did note that all of the countries should have the payments service up and running by the end of the calendar year.

Back in February, Apple watchers believed that a rollout of Apple Pay in Germany was a done deal, as support documents included a full translation of the "About Apple Pay" info in German and German-language how-to graphics. However, reports from various sources claim that German banks aren't excited about paying Apple transaction fees and are pushing back on the service. ...

iOS 11 will drop support for 32-bit apps, and one app that had a lot of users concerned was Google Earth for iOS. The free app was sadly showing up as 32-bit, as it hadn't been updated in quite a while. Today, Google finally updated the app with 64-bit compatibility and added a bunch of new features at the same time. 

To begin with, Google Earth now has a stylish new app icon, that big blue marble you see at right. Google reports that:

The pleasantly alarming sounds of the Apple HomePod

If it weren't for developers, bloggers wouldn't have a lot to write about. Not only do we now have a really good idea that the iPhone 8 will have a bezel-less screen with a "notch" at the top for sensors, but we know what some of the alarm tones are going to sound like on the upcoming HomePod. 

Developer Avery Magnotti published notes on how to go through the HomePod's firmware based on the "accidental" prerelease build of audioOS (the operating system for the HomePod) that was recently leaked through Apple's public update servers. Based on that, Magnotti made a "video" (there's nothing to look at but a black screen) featuring a number of the beeps and tones that you'll hear out of the HomePod as it notifies you of various things:

So there you go! Enjoy the beeps of the day!

Days after Apple yanked anti-censorship tools off its app store in China, another major American technology company is moving to implement the country's tough restrictions on online content. From a report: A Chinese company that operates Amazon's cloud-computing and online services business there said on Tuesday that it told local customers to cease using any software that would allow Chinese to circumvent the country's extensive system of internet blocks (Editor's note: the link could be paywalled; alternative source). The company, called Beijing Sinnet Technology and operator of the American company's Amazon Web Services operations in China, sent one round of emails to customers on Friday and another on Monday. "If users don't comply with the guidance, the offered services and their websites can be shut down," said a woman surnamed Wang who answered a Sinnet service hotline.

Motherboard: Unpatchable hack that turns Amazon Echo...

Louise Matsakis, Motherboard:

The Amazon Echo can be turned into a spying tool by exploiting a physical security vulnerability, according to Mark Barnes, a researcher at cybersecurity firm MWR InfoSecurity. His research shows how it’s possible to hack the 2015 and 2016 models of the smart speaker to listen in on users without any indication that they’ve been compromised.

The issue is unfixable via a software update, meaning millions of Echos sold in 2015 and 2016 will likely have this vulnerability through the end of their use.

Barnes executed the attack by removing the bottom of the smart speaker and exposing 18 “debug” pads, which he used to boot directly into the firmware with an external SD card. Once the hack is complete, the rubber base can be reattached, leaving behind no evidence of tampering.

With the malware installed, Barnes could remotely monitor the Echo’s “always listening” microphone, which is constantly paying attention for a “wake word...

iOS 11, nav bar design changes, and the upcoming...

Fantastic speculation from Allen Pike.

The nav bar is the strip at the top of the display that allows you to navigate between views. It features buttons like “+”, “Edit”, “Done”, “< Back”, etc.

iOS 11 has changed the design of the nav bar, moving the title from the center of the nav bar to its own line, left justified, and to a much larger, bolded font size.

Allen posits that this change was made to accommodate the disappearance of a physical home button and the corresponding shrinking of the bezel, the growth of the screen to just about the bottom of the phone.

In Allen’s view, the nav bar will move to the bottom of the screen, on either side of the virtual home button.

I think he’s on to something. Read the post, look at the pictures to get your own sense of this.

iPhone shipments return to growth

Samsung continued to lead the worldwide smartphone market in the second quarter (Q2) of 2017 with shipments of over 79 million units, leaving growth relatively flat, according to Canalys. Apple held on to second place by shipping 41 million iPhones, increasing its annual shipments volume by 2%, despite anticipation building for a significant product refresh later in the year, notes the research group.

Worldwide shipments of 38 million units, growth of 20% for Huawei, helped it close the gap with the leading pair and get within three million units of taking the second place from Apple. Oppo and Xiaomi were the top performers in fourth and fifth spot, growing shipments 44% and 52% respectively. Over 340 million smartphones shipped in Q2 2017, an increase of almost 4% year on year. 

“The smartphone market continued to grow in Q2, despite India and China both slipping into decline,” says Canalys Research Analyst Vincent...

Are App Sizes Out of Control?

In a blog post, Trevor Elkins points out the large sizes of common apps like LinkedIn and Facebook. "I went to update all my apps the other day when something caught my eye... since when does LinkedIn take up 275MB of space?!" Elkins wrote. "In fact, the six apps in this picture average roughly 230MB in size, 1387MB in total. That would take an 8Mbit internet connection 24 minutes to download, and I'd still be left with 27 additional apps to update! More and more companies are adopting shorter release cycles (two weeks or so) and it's becoming unsustainable as a consumer to update frequently." Should Apple do something to solve this "systematic" problem? Elkins writes, "how does an app that occasionally sends me a connection request and recruiter spam take up 275MB?"

Analysts: Fears about ‘iPhone 8’ delay fade; Apple...

Seeking Alpha notes that fears about a delay in the new iPhone have faded after upbeat management commentary, says RBC analyst Amit Daryanani, putting Apple on track to be the first $1 trillion company. 

He adds that Apple’s “impressive guidance” suggests the release could come at the end of September. Daryanani keeps his outlook on the company’s stock at “Outperform” and raises the price target to $176 from $168.

JPMorgan's Rod Hall says the better iPhone outlook is likely thanks to two new LCD model 7s he expects will be shipping in September. The stock, he says, is now rebounding to "pre-delay" levels. He has lifted his Apple stock price target from $165 to $176.

Meanwhile, Piper Jaffray's Michael Olsen seems to concur. He’s boosted his price target to $190 from $158.

Why you can’t find your original Photos files

Glenn Fleishman, Macworld:

Photos, like iTunes and iMovie, doesn’t have a great way for you to access the media and other items that it manages, but there are some workarounds.

Apple gradually changed its app design to rely on library “files,” which are a special kind of folder, called a package. To the Finder, and for the purposes of copying and moving items, the library is a single folder. Inside, it contains all the sausage-making ingredients used by the apps, including original media files, modified ones (in the cases of Photos), project components, and one or more databases that track what’s inside the library.

Packages have been around forever. As Glenn says, this is a change in the way iPhoto and Photos stored their media.

Part of this is due to the nature of that media. Used to be, all photos produced a single jpeg. Over time, things got complicated, with live photos, bursts, undoable image editing, etc. Hard to not wrap that sausage making in a...

Apple’s financial results: The Charts

As he does, Jason Snell pulled together a host of charts laying out Apple’s financial results six ways from Sunday. Lots to process here.

My favorite is the very last chart, Apple revenue by product category. Some things I see:

  • Look at the difference between iPhone and the rest of the revenue categories. Great visual snapshot showing the incredible importance of the iPhone to Apple.
  • Look how tightly clustered the iPad, Mac, and Services are. They all depend on iPhone as an anchor, but all make critical contributions to the ecosystem and bottom line. Good to see the relative contribution of the Mac there.
  • Interesting how the labels were done. Each label was placed on an outlying part of its labeled line. Works well. Wondering if this was Jason’s handwork, or a smart chart app. Either way, nice detail.

Great work, Jason. Thanks.

I wrote yesterday that Apple’s Q4 guidance would give a big clue about iPhone 8 timing, but that it might not be easy to decode.

I said that one of the three possible scenarios would give the clearest steer: a guidance range significantly higher than normal for a ‘tock’ year. In that event, it would send a clear message that the iPhone 8 will go on sale in September, with at least enough availability to show up in the financials.

And that’s where I think we’re at, even if the numbers are not high enough to absolutely guarantee it …

How to customize and customize items in macOS Sierra...

There are four ways to view items in a Finder window in macOS Sierra: as icons, as a list, in columns, or in Cover Flow view. To choose a view, use the View buttons at the top of the Finder window. In the four views, there are additional ways to customize how your items are displayed.

For example, you can sort items, arrange icons, and resize columns. Your settings for sorting and arranging items in a folder apply until you change them. If you sort your Documents folder by Date Added, the next time you view your Documents folder, it’s sorted by Date Added.

To sort items, in any view, choose View > Show View Options, click the Sort By pop-up menu, then choose the sort order, such as Date Modified or Name. In List view and Cover Flow, move the pointer over the column name you want to sort by, then click it. Click the column name again to reverse the sort order.

Facebook Is Working On a Video Chat Device

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Facebook Inc. is working on a video chat device for the home -- the first major hardware product from its experimental Building 8 lab. Featuring a laptop-sized touchscreen, the device represents a new product category and could be announced as soon as next spring's F8 developer conference, according to people familiar with the matter. They say the large screen and smart camera technology could help farflung people feel like they're in the same room, which aligns with Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg's mission of bringing Facebook users closer together. The device is in the prototype phase but is already being tested in people's homes. Geared to the living room, the video chat device will feature a wide-angle camera lens, microphones and speakers that are all powered by artificial intelligence to boost performance, the people said. A version of the device in testing includes a thin, vertical stand that holds a large...

Apple's Shares Rise On Better-Than-Expected...

Apple reported a 7.2% rise in quarterly revenue on Tuesday, thanks to better-than-expected sales of its iPhones. "The company said iPhone sales rose 1.6% to 41.03 million in the third quarter ended July 1, above analysts' average estimate of 40.7 million units," reports Fortune. "Apple sold 40.4 million iPhones a year earlier." From the report: Apple's shares rose 4% in after-hours trading on Tuesday to $ 156.00.
Many customers wait for Apple to launch its new smartphones before deciding on upgrading or replacing their current devices, which usually results in iPhone demand tapering in the months before a release. The company forecast total revenue of between $49 billion and $52 billion for the current quarter, while analysts on average were expecting $49.21 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Analysts on average expect the company to sell 45.55 million iPhones in the current quarter, according to FactSet. Apple sold 45.51 million iPhones in the year-ago quarter...

HomePod's firmware has revealed several new features coming to the upcoming iPhone, such as a tap to wake function, facial expression and attention detection, and virtual home button. "Apple accidentally released the firmware over the weekend resulting in a frenzy of analysis about previously unknown features," reports The Verge. From the report: Developers including Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo have been tweeting their findings, notably the discovery of the new iPhone's bezel-less screen design. They've also concluded that the resolution for the iPhone 8 could be as much of a visual leap forward from current-generation iPhones as the iPhone 4's Retina display was from the original iPhone. Apple is using codenames for both its face recognition feature and the bezel-less phone, called "Pearl ID" and "D22" respectively. A potential "attention detection" feature is also mentioned in the code, with some speculating that may mean the phone will remain silent for...

Apple's third-quarter earnings soar on the back...

No new iPhone, no problem for Apple’s bottom line. The company just reported its third quarter results for fiscal year 2017 and they’re awfully good: $8.7 billion profit, or $1.67 per share, on revenue of $45.4 billion.

That breaks down to 41 million iPhones, a slight increase from the third quarter of 2016, when Apple moved more than a little more than 40 million handsets. Sales were down when compared to last quarter’s 50.7 million, however.

But the big surprise was the iPad. On the back of the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro released at WWDC in June, Apple moved 11.4 million tablets, its biggest non-holiday quarter for the tablet in more than two years. That’s an increase of nearly 30 percent from last quarter and 15 percent from Q3 2016. However, revenue from tablet sales was only up 2 percent,...
