Driving around the Apple Car theory

Speculation is raging that Apple will enter the automotive market with the Apple Car. Maybe so, but I think there’s a chance that it’s not going to happen — at least in the way many folks expect. However, you will see an ever-increasing Apple influence in automobiles.

In fact, a Slashdot article from way back in 2012 (yep, these Apple Car theories have been driving around for a long time) opines that Apple’s revolution should be IN your car instead of the company making its own automobiles. The article looked at the "sorry state" of car makers' stereo and navigation systems and concluded: 

"It's clear that most of the auto companies that offer more than a car stereo want to lock you into their interface and services -- as awful as they are. The rest don't care. The aftermarket stereo and nav systems are no better. Stuffed with even more buttons and light-show gewgaws, they're sure to keep your eyes off the road and...

Nintendo claims non-Mario games chosen for mobile...

Many Nintendo fans were disappointed when the company chose to launch a new game Miitomo for its first move into mobile, rather than the popular Super Mario series. The company later revealed that it will be bringing existing Nintendo game franchises to iOS later this year, but again, no sign of Mario. Instead, we can expect Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem.

China’s booming middle class bodes well for Apple,...

Apple CEO Tim Cook still sees great potential in the Chinese market despite a drop in its revenue from the country in the first quarter.

In an interview to Jim Cramer of CNBC’s Mad Money program, Cook said Monday that the middle class in China is expected to boom from 50 million people five years ago to almost 500 million in the next five years. “This is an unprecedented growth of the middle class,” said Cook, adding that he “could not be more optimistic about China.”

To a question from Cramer, Cook said it was an error by him not to to mention the figures about the burgeoning Chinese middle class during the company’s recent earnings call.

Purported iPhone 7 component leak disagrees with...

The iPhone 7 had been rumored to be dropping the analog 3.5 mm headphone jack, in favour of wireless Bluetooth or Lightning cable headphones for audio output. However, a new iPhone 7 component leak posted on Weibo disagrees with previous reports, depicting a board that includes a 3.5mm jack (in the top right of the photo above).

The 3.5mm jack is large (relative to the thinness of the phone), dates back more than a hundred years and has been superseded in terms of signal quality by the modern digital solutions, so it is plausible that Apple would want to abandon it. However, the idea of removing the port has been controversial (with complaints about existing accessory compatibility). This Chinese...

Business Insider report on the smartwatch market is forecasting that the Apple Watch will by 2020 account for around 40% of sales in the luxury watch market, which it defines as watches costing at least $350.

As evidence for this, it cites a consumer survey showing growing interest in the Apple Watch among owners of traditional watches, 27% of those who already wear a watch saying that the added functionality of Apple’s wearable appeals to them. The report also notes a trend away from simpler fitness bands toward full...

The AluFrame from Just Mobile is an elegant aluminum shield case for the iPhone 6 and 6s Plus. It protects the Apple smartphone from damage without hiding its design. 

The AluFrame also boasts a rubber inner lining to protect the iPhone's own aluminum bezel. It's easy to install. Fit the Apple smartphone in the piece that protects the bottom and right edges. Rotate the other arm around and snap the two segments together. To remove, just press the top of the catch mechanism and pull. Once the AluFrame is installed, you still have access to all your iPhone's ports and buttons.

The AluFrame comes with a screen protector, as well as a film to protect the back of the iPhone. As always, when using a "peel and apply" screen protector, I had a devil of a time getting rid of the air bubbles. But perhaps you're more talented than I.

My one complaint: though the Just Mobile case's interior is...

Opinion: Smart Connector is the future but Apple...

Alongside the iPad Pro last November, Apple introduced a new connectivity option for users with the Smart Connector. Originally, Apple only touted the connection as being good for easily pairing things like keyboards to the iPad. We’ve since learned a little more about the capabilities of the three-pin connection, but overarching details are still vague.

Last month, I had the chance to try out the LOGI Base dock with Smart Connector support. Prior to using it, I was totally unaware that the Smart Connector was capable of charging the iPad Pro, albeit it at a slightly slower pace. Using the LOGI Base, however, intrigued me. What are the actual capabilities of Smart Connector?

RadTech releases ProCable UHD Lightning cables

RadTech has always had good stuff and this could come in handy.

The company has just released the ProCable UHD Lightning, a charge and sync cable for all Lightning port-equipped devices. The cable itself is braided to prevent tangling and uses oversized, crush-proof aluminum connectors, yet is designed to last longer than most Lightning cables to date.

The ProCable UHD Lightning arrives in 18″, 6 foot and 10 foot lengths, which retail for $12.95, $16.95 and $24.95, respectively and are warranted for life.

If you’ve tried the ProCable UHD Lightning and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.

Why your iPhone-unlocking fingerprint is susceptible...

Should you be able to plead the Fifth when a judge forces you to use your fingerprints to unlock an iPhone?

That’s the latest ongoing debate in a Los Angeles courtroom after a judge compelled a woman in custody to use Touch ID to unlock an iPhone. Legal experts are arguing that this goes against the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination because the authorities would then have access to potentially-incriminating personal data stored on the device.

The debate started after authorities obtained a search warrant for Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, the girlfriend of a suspected Armenian gang member, to use her fingerprints to unlock an iPhone seized from a home in Glendale, California. The iPhone in question was enabled with Touch ID sensor technology.

Leef iACCESS microSD card reader. Photo©2016, Steven Sande

There are a growing number of accessories that use the microSD card standard as storage for photos and videos. These tiny cards can store up to 200GB on a card the size of a fingernail, which explains their popularity in action cameras like the GoPro and on a growing number of drones. Leef now has an iOS microSD reader called iACCESS (US$49.99) that speeds the transfer of video and photos from your favorite cams to your iPhone or iPad, and can also act as virtually unlimited storage for your device by simply popping in other cards.

Design

iACCESS uses a "J" design similar to the company's popular iBridge USB/Lightning storage device, but it's a bit wider on the vertical part of the "J". That width is apparently there for stability of the iACCESS when connected, as well as...

Rumor: iPhone 7 could sport a Smart Connector

The Japanese site Mac Otakara says the upcoming iPhone 7 (the mock-up is courtesy of iPhone-Tricks.com) will sport a Smart Connector, which could mean a Smart Keyboard for the next gen Apple smartphone.

The Smart Connector — introduced with the iPad Pro — allows peripherals to be attached magnetically and requires no cords, pairing, or plugs. The Smart Keyboard is made by Apple and attaches to the iPad Pro (both sizes) to offer a physical keyboard.

Odds on the iPhone 7 having a Smart Connector and Smart Keyboard: 30%. I don't think it will happen. Do we really need a physical keyboard for our smartphone — even if it’s one of the iPhone 6s Plus models?

It was more like they were watching a great tennis player and seemingly concluding, "damn, what luck!" As Liam Neeson says in the movie Taken, it requires a particular set of skills to do what Jobs did. While not as smooth, refined or product-focused as Jobs was, Donald Trump is showcasing that same set of skills.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have batteries with 1715 mAH and 2750 man, respectively.

The iPhone 7 is said to share a similar appearance to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models, but incorporate a thinner body and redesigned antennas. A major chassis design change is currently expected for the ‘iPhone 8’ in 2017.

If there was one thing I would have sworn you could never interest me in trying, it was yet another Bluetooth earpiece. There are about a zillion of these available (well, 45,322 according to Amazon), and for the most part my view has always been that if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ’em all. Stick them in your ear and get tinny, one-eared sound that is hopeless for music but does the job for hands-free phone calls when you don’t have access to an installed setup in your car.

But I had to admit that the Schatzii Bullet is rather smaller and more stylish than most, with a cute charging system that goes some way toward making up for the somewhat limited battery-life that inevitably accompanies such a small device. It seemed worth a try …

Court orders woman to use her fingerprint to unlock...

Here we go again. A Los Angeles court has okayed a warrant for the FBI forcing a woman to unlock an iPhone equipped with Apple's Touch ID fingerprint technology, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The woman is the girlfriend of an alleged Armenian gang. The court order compelled her to press her finger against an Apple iPhone that had been seized by the FBI. The phone contained Apple's fingerprint identification system for unlocking, and prosecutors wanted access to the data inside it.

This “marked a rare time that prosecutors have demanded a person provide a fingerprint to open a computer, but experts expect such cases to become more common as cracking digital security becomes a larger part of law enforcement work,” adds the Times.

What that means is that users who get a push notification sent to their iPhone in order to approve a login can now authenticate the attempt using their fingerprint. It's an added level of security on top of the two-factor authentication capabilities in Verify, which is useful for organizations that want to keep logins even more secure without worrying about inconveniencing users.

NetMarketShare: OS X up substantially in April,...

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for Mac OS X rose in April, while that of iOS dipped.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, Mac OS X had 9.2% of the global market share in April, up substantially from 7.77% percent in March (that’s global market share; in the US it’s over 13%). This is an an all-time high by NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 89.23% as of April.

iOS had 28.62% of the mobile operating system market share in April, down from 32.28% in March. This compares to 61.8% for Android, 3.96% for Windows Phone, and 2.1% 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...

Comment: Atari co-founder’s ‘easy to learn,...

I’m not much of a gamer, but I think Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell may have put his finger on what is often missing from mobile games – a lesson he last week told the Guardian many have yet to learn from the early arcade games.

“When you look at mobile and arcade gaming, they’re identical,” Bushnell says. “Mobile has some of the same game constraints for the player, and that ‘easy to learn, and difficult to master’ metric.” This common phrase is, as it happens, known as ‘Bushnell’s law’ – he first uttered it in 1971 while making his preliminary steps into the arcade business with seminal coin-op Computer Space.com

That lesson – dating back to the days when Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak created Breakout for Atari – was something arcade games designers had to learn if they...

Forget the Apple Car; I want my iMow and my iSaw

Forget the Apple Car. I want Apple to enter the lawnmower, chainsaw and weed eater markets.

For years I've used Apple products and they work 99.9% of the time with no fuss. Not so with all the yard equipment I've owned.

For instance, my Yard Mower quit on me last week. I was mowing my lawn with the push mower, which had been treated to fresh oil and some nice ethanol-free gas. Despite the love bestowed up on it, it belched once and refused to do any more work. It's been on strike since that day.

Last autumn I was using a chainsaw to slice up some small, fallen trees in the yard. The chainsaw fell apart. Literally. The bar detached itself from the body and fell to the ground. Apparently, it was a mechanical suicide.

And don't get me started on weed eaters. They only work when they feel like it.

Admittedly, I'm not mechanically inclined when it comes to small engine repair. And Apple certainly isn't going to enter this market.

Too bad. I can...

Envoy Pro EX is a slick and handy solid state drive...

Other World Computing's OWC Envoy Pro EX is one of the slickest solid state drive solutions around and a fine accessory for Macs with limited storagecapacity. Designed for high performance storage and/or backup, it's powerful and portable -- small enough, in fact, to fit into a coat pocket, backpack, or briefcase.

Inside the Envoy Pro EX is a SandForce Driven OWC Aura Pro 6G SSD that offers real world sustained reads up to 436MB/s and writes up to 429MB/s. The USB 3.0 interface can bus-power the drive so an AC power adapter isn’t required.

Aura Pro SSDs utilize Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of the commonly utilized Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be "synced" with the SSD processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput. 

Additionally, the Aura Pro SSD utilizes DuraWrite Technology and intelligent block management to ensure endurance and...

FBI granted federal court warrant forcing suspect to...

For the first time in a federal case, a suspect has been ordered to use her fingerprint to unlock her iPhone using Touch ID. The LA Times reports that a federal judge signed a warrant allowing the FBI to compel a suspect in an identity theft case to to unlock the phone just 45 minutes after her arrest.

Authorities obtained a search warrant compelling the girlfriend of an alleged Armenian gang member to press her finger against an iPhone that had been seized from a Glendale home […]

In the Glendale case, the FBI wanted the fingerprint of Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, a 29-year-old woman from L.A. with a string of criminal convictions who pleaded no contest to a felony count of identity theft.

The warrant is consistent with a 2014 case where a Virginia District...

Today is Baby Day, which celebrates, well, babies. At least I think it does. I couldn’t find any info on the origin of this “holiday,” but, hey, a day that celebrates the enjoyment and care of young infants is a good thing. To celebrate, I’ve picked out three baby related apps for the Mac and three for iOS devices.

Available at the Mac App Store:

Baby Tracker is a $0.99 app that allows you track your pregnancy and estimate when the new addition will make his or her entrance into the world. You can track weight, height, head circumference, heart beat, BMI, and more.

 

Gestational Age is a $8.99 due date calculator. It’s designed for gynecologists and obstetricians, but can also be used by expectant moms.

The 10 Mac games you need to play from April 2016

April's Mac games

What always impresses me each month as I put together our picks for new Mac game releases is how diverse of a selection we have each and every few weeks. For example, April’s selections are headlined by a strategic role-playing game set against the end of the world, a frantic co-op shooting game with fantastical weapons, and a tough-as-nails puzzler about cooking sausages.

A new lawsuit filed against gyroscope and accelerometer supplier for Apple, InvenSense, accuses the company of failing to tell investors about the concessions it made to secure a recent deal. InvenSense parts are used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; executives should have warned investors, the suit alleges, that Apple was given a "sweetheart deal" that would hurt profits. "Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...
