External Link: The App Store Rule Apple Ignores

The App Store has a number of rules that Apple stringently enforces, but as developer Marco Arment points out, there’s one it outright ignores: the ban against using push notifications for promotional purposes. Apple itself violated this rule during its Apps for RED campaign, sending a push notification to iOS users from the App Store app to announce it.

News: Report: MacBook-sized “iPad Air Plus” planned...

Speculation as to the actual size of a larger next-generation iPad is continuing, as a report from Japanese magazine Mac Fan (via MacOtakara) purports to offer specifics as to the device’s dimensions and features. A schematic suggests a design nearly identical to the iPad Air 2, only with a larger 12.2” screen and a total of four speakers spread across the top and bottom of the tablet for orientation-agnostic stereo sound. Mac Fan claims…

Canaccord Raises AAPL Target on Demand for High-...

Demand for Apple's recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still high, Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley is raising his target price for the company's stock from US$120 up to $135. That demand is targeted mostly at the higher capacity 64GB and 128GB models, which he says offer higher profit margins.

The Mac Observer Spin: Consumers were clearly ready for bigger screen and higher capacity iPhones, and that demand doesn't seem to be letting up. It's looking like Apple will be able to sell iPhones as fast is it can make them through the holiday buying season.

Journalist-Tracking Uber Exec Gets Vague Hand Slap


Uber has disciplined a company executive accused of using an internal tool to track a journalist's whereabouts, it said. The company offered no details about the nature of that reprimand, however, or about the possibility of taking similar action against another executive who publicly suggested the possibility of targeting journalists with a smear campaign. Attention focused on Mohrer last month when a reporter accused him of using an internal tool called "God View" to look up her travel data as she made her way to a meeting with him.

They have a mock up video of the possible larger, next-gen iPad.

Per MacRumors and Nowhereelse.fr, YouTube user Canoopsy has created a video showing how an iPad Air Plus with those dimensions would measure up to Apple’s other devices including the company’s current iPads, iPhones and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Some reports have noted that the larger iPad would carry a 12.9-inch display, however it’s also been suggested that Apple will opt for a 12.2-inch screen. A 12.2-inch iPad Air Plus is of course shown to be much bigger than Apple’s current line of iPhones and bigger than the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2, as it even approaches the display size of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The iPad Air Plus is said to...

SwiftKey announced on Tuesday that it has collaborated with Intel on an ambitious project for the past two years: improving the communication system of Stephen Hawking. The custom keyboard maker makes it easier for the well-known scientist, who has motor neurone disease, to predict full words, based on a small sensor activated by a muscle in his cheek.

SwiftKey has integrated its technology into Hawking’s communication system to provide him with tailored predictions and autocorrections, citing that the scientist’s mistakes are much different than those of the average smartphone user. Hawking is an accurate and precise speller, whereas many users of the keyboard are sending fast, sloppy texts or tweets.

The show will feature Woz testing futuristic gadgets hands-on. The press release says it “introduces the audience to facilities where science fiction is quickly becoming reality.”

That’s all that’s known so far and reporters are reaching out to producers and and Steve Wozniak alike himself for more information. It’s unknown when or where it will air (it looks like they pitched it to Discovery already) but this pedigree should be pretty nifty.

The Free Software Foundation launched an anti-DRM campaign in 2006 called "defective by design." Apple's iPod was immediately a focus. Free Software Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO—This morning, Apple will begin a duel over claims that it used copy-protection schemes known as "digital rights management," or DRM, to illegally manipulate the market for iPods. The lawsuit, filed nearly 10 years ago, puts some legal firepower behind activists' claims that the copy-protection DRM is "defective by design."

Lawyers representing a class of nearly eight million consumers will put their case to a jury of eight men and women in an Oakland federal courtroom. The plaintiffs say that Apple's "FairPlay" system "locked in" its customers,...

Now Elgato’s back with the Thunderbolt 2 Dock ($230), a remixed version that looks mostly the same but adds throughput to accommodate Thunderbolt 2-equipped Macs and accessories. Still made from aluminum with a black plastic core, the Thunderbolt 2 Dock rearranges and enhances its predecessor’s ports, shipping with a power supply, 1.6-foot Thunderbolt cable, and either one U.S. or two European wall plugs, depending on where it’s purchased.

The video by tech channel Canoopsy shows the iPad Pro mockup compared in size to everything from the iPhone 5 through to the iPad Air 2 – then places it against a 13-inch MacBook Pro, showing that it is almost exactly the same height and just a little less wide.

The idea of a 12.2-inch display was first posted by MacOtakara, which also suggested a 7mm thickness. Most previous rumors had pegged the screen size at a slightly...

At any given moment in the immensely popular Call of Duty first-person shooter games on consoles and computers, you might blast your way through a crumbling near-future city, dominate worldwide competition in frantic online shootouts, or survive a horrific zombie uprising with a small group of allies.

By contrast, Call of Duty: Heroes (free) for iPhone and iPad finds you tapping your way through menus, watching your automated soldiers fire assault rifles at large buildings until they blow up, and waiting for timers to tick down. Quite a difference, no? Veterans of a certain lightweight freemium strategy approach will recognize this as a modern-military themed take on Clash of Clans, and no doubt, Activision hopes that audience will move from one big brand to another.

The new Mac mini is quickly turning into a disaster

Tekrevue:

So, what does this mean? At best, it means only very modest improvements for some models, certainly less than most would expect from a system as old as the 2012 Mac mini. At worst, it means a dramatic decrease in performance, with some 2012 configurations absolutely destroying their 2014 counterparts in multi-core workflows.

The good, bad and downright ugly of the latest Mac mini. Not a machine I have a lot of faith in recommending.

The truth about sharks

The Independent:

Turn off the spine-tingling music and forget everything you thought you knew about this solitary, “mindless killing machine”. Sharks have individual personalities. They socialise, choose best friends and create social networks of unusual complexity. They can be trained by humans to complete simple tasks, much more quickly than rabbits or cats, for instance, and retain the knowledge for much longer.

Sharks also teach each other new tricks: how to find food, identify predators and charm mates. Like sea turtles, some travel huge distances to return to their own birthplace, again and again, to give birth themselves. Most don’t need to swim continuously to survive. And rather than being near-blind and reliant on smell, which is the general perception, they in fact have advanced sight. They feel pain. And the boldest sharks face a greater risk of dying before adulthood.

Why does any of this matter? Well, we’re killing about 100 million sharks every...

Review: Uniq Transforma for iPad Air 2

Uniq's Transforma ($45) is one of the few iPad Air 2 cases we've seen so far that is specifically designed for Apple's newest full-sized iPad — it won't work with the thicker first-generation iPad Air, which is a good thing from our perspective, as the case is noticeably thinner than earlier cases. The folio-style case features a magnetic folding lid that transforms into a stand for viewing the iPad Air 2 in a number of angles, including portrait mode, and the magnet also activates the iPad Air 2's sleep/wake function. As with many folio cases, the buttons are left exposed on Transforma, as is the iPad's speaker grille.{/exp:char_limit}

It connects to an audio source via Bluetooth, plus it levitates. Drop in Luke Skywalker with a helmet over this eyes, and you can have yourself a proper SciFi shindig. The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker ships in January for $199. Stack Social has it on preorder for $195-when your speaker levitates, you don't have to discount it much. But this week only it's $179.99. So check it out and start counting down the days until it ships.

Cyber Monday Brings Sweet Deals for Video Gamers


A batch of great online deals on Cyber Monday, on the heels of strong Black Friday sales at traditional brick-and-mortar stores, could make Microsoft's Xbox One video game system the big winner in the run-up to the holidays. The video game console headed into its second holiday season in second place to Sony's PlayStation 4, but Microsoft has introduced a number of bundles to draw in gamers. Both systems saw strong pre-holiday sales after their respective launches last year, but Microsoft could have an early edge this time around.

Review: Magpul Field Case for iPhone 6

We've seen Magpul's Field Case ($17) a number of times before, and it's now been released for the iPhone 6. The American-made flexible thermoplastic case provides basic protection, as well as retaining the same look and feel as previous versions of the Field Case, last seen for iPhone 5/5s — refer to that review for further details. Field Case includes volume control and Sleep/Wake button coverage. Some users may want to note that Magpul is primarily a manufacturer of firearms and firearms accessories, which may influence your interest in this product; as always, we're reviewing the iPhone case strictly on its own merits.{/exp:char_limit}

10-Year-Old iTunes DRM Lawsuit Heading To Trial

itwbennett writes Plaintiffs in the Apple iPod iTunes antitrust litigation complain that Apple married iTunes music with iPod players, and they want $350 million in damages. The lawsuit accuses Apple of violating U.S. and California antitrust law by restricting music purchased on iTunes from being played on devices other than iPods and by not allowing iPods to play music purchased on other digital music services. Late Apple founder Steve Jobs will reportedly appear via a videotaped statement during the trial, scheduled to begin Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Holiday gift guide: Making music with your iPhone,...

It doesn’t take much to get up and running recording music on your Mac, iPad, or even your iPhone. With a few pieces of additional hardware and the right software, it’s easier than ever to have a home recording setup that, thanks to iOS and some great third-party apps, is as simple and as intuitive to use as iOS itself.

How speakers make sound

Animagraffs:

Speakers push and pull surrounding air molecules in waves that the human ear interprets as sound. You could even say that hearing is movement detection. So what makes a speaker travel back and forth at just the right rate and distance, and how does that make sound?

I thought I knew how speakers worked. After watching this cool web page, I realized I had no clue how speakers worked.

Apple’s Latest iPhone Headache: Crescentgate

Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have already been through the media ringer for being too easy to bend, and now there's a new issue to latch onto called Crescentgate.

Review: Speck StyleFolio for iPad Air 2

Speck's folio-style case for iPad, StyleFolio ($40), has returned for iPad Air 2. Reviewed for iPad Air last year, the updated StyleFolio actually fits both iPad Air models, as there are cutouts for both the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 — note the microphone holes in the center of the case. The camera hole has also been elongated to accommodate the microphone next to the iPad Air 2 camera. Other than that, the faux-leather case is very similar to the previous edition, with built-in stand functionality, a plastic clasp to keep the lid closed, and front-facing speaker vents.

Emails, video by Jobs may back plaintiffs in iPod...

Evidence from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is likely to be central in an antitrust case against the company set to go to trial tomorrow, notes the New York Times. The plaintiffs charge that Apple's now-defunct DRM restrictions on iPods -- which limited people to loading music bought on the iTunes Store or ripped from a CD -- represented anti-competitive behavior, in turn leading to higher prices. Jobs recorded a video deposition prior to his death in 2011, which the plaintiffs' lawyers intend to use alongside emails written by the CEO....

It’s a rumor at this point, but an interesting one.

Per MacRumors, Japanese magazine Mac Fan has published some possible schematics depicting the design of the larger-screened “iPad Pro” or “iPad Air Plus” in its January issue, which have been shared by Mac Otakara along with some information about the upcoming device.

The schematics suggest the tablet will include a 12.2-inch LCD display, and it points towards dimensions of 305.31mm x 220.8mm x 7mm, or 12 inches x 8.7 inches x 0.28 inches, which is in line with previous rumors about the larger tablet. Many rumors have suggested a size of 12.9-inches for the larger tablet, but this is the second report from Mac Otakara that has suggested the device will...

What If Jaguar and Tesla Merged?


OK, I know you are just back from Thanksgiving vacation, if you are in the U.S., and you likely are still stewing about what your drunk uncle said during dinner. So, since you probably are in the mood, I thought I'd toss out an idea that has been percolating in my brain that I plan to annoy folks with at my Thanksgiving dinner: What if Jaguar and Tesla merged? Both firms are pushing hard into the market, and while they are using very different strategies, they'd likely both do a lot better if they would adopt parts of each other's.

It’s Cyber Monday and there’s a decent chance at savings if you know where to look.

Per 9to5Mac, T-Mobile just announced a few special iPhone deals available for today. As of now, the carrier is offering discounts on the iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 5c, allowing users to upgrade to a higher capacity model at no additional cost.

For the iPhone 6, for example, T-Mobile is offering a 64GB model for the cost of the entry-level 16GB model, allowing users to save US$100 off the US$750 the device usually sells for. The company normally sells the 64GB model for US$749 or US$99 down and monthly installments.

The carrier has a similar deal on the iPhone 5s offering a 64GB model for the price of the 32GB model (US$599), as well as the iPhone 5c with 32GB models for the price of the...
