Why Apple’s laptops could use a little less...

As a company, Apple’s philosophy is often about pushing the envelope. And that’s great. It’s how we got the original Mac’s GUI, the iPhone, and other products and features too numerous to name. Apple likes to play up this revolutionary part of its history, and how it’s constantly trying to create world-beating products and not just move the needle slowly forward. It’s not imagine the late Steve Jobs summoning forth the adage often attributed to Henry Ford: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

Of course, the philosophy of innovation can go awry. Apple was so concerned about transforming the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro into an elegant, radical piece of machinery that it lost sight of what made that product appeal to its users. In a rare moment, the comapny even admitted it had taken the wrong approach.

Damage

Shawn posted this last night, but this hits very close to home for me, wanted to add my 2 cents.

Matt Gemmell:

No company has done as much damage to the perceived value of software, and the sustainability of being an independent developer, as Apple.

Not that other companies wouldn’t have done the same thing — they would have. It’s just that Apple was the successful one.

It’s resolutely the fault of us as consumers, and it’s actively encouraged by the App Store.

This is a scorcher. At its heart, this is about the iOS App Store’s race to the bottom, price-wise, and the difficulty of making a living as a developer in a “pennies for your work” market.

Matt does an excellent job laying out all the details. A core argument:

Has Apple created a huge market, in terms of potential customers? Absolutely. It’s just done so at the expense of its platform-invested developer community. Judging by the company’s value and income, it was a very wise...

Qualcomm could consider “nuclear option” in ongoing...

Things are getting ugly between Apple and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm, which has been in a heated dispute with Apple over patent royalty payment, may exercise the nuclear option by asking the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) to block iPhone imports.

At the root of the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm are cellular communication technology patents that Apple and others license from Qualcomm for a hefty fee.

The tensions, which have been brewing for months, finally hit a new peak in January when the Federal Trade Commission accused Qualcomm of anti-trust practices. Essentially the deals it was making with companies like Apple were considered unfair. Part of the issue was that Qualcomm was charging Apple a licensing fee for every single iPhone, whether or not every device used Qualcomm’s cellular technologies. As of the iPhone 7, Apple started mixing in Intel baseband processors to the iPhone mix.

A few days later, Apple filed suit against...

How to share calendars in macOS Sierra

With macOS Sierra you can share calendars with others who have iCloud accounts. You can also choose whether others can edit the calendar or only view it. If you also use iCloud Family Sharing, a Family calendar automatically appears in the iCloud calendar list. Everyone in your Family Sharing group can view and update the same Family calendar.

To share a calendar place the pointer over the calendar’s name in the calendar list, then click the Share Calendar button.

If you don’t see the calendar list on the left, choose View > Show Calendar List.

Click Share With, then enter the names or email addresses of people you want to invite to share your calendar.
You can also enter the name of a group in Contacts to invite all the group members.
If you don’t see Share With, click below the last name or email address in the Shared With list. If you see a Shared By [name] list instead of a Shared With list, only the person named can add people.

Google Docs phishing attack underscores OAuth...

Google has stopped Wednesday’s clever email phishing scheme, but the attack may very well make a comeback.

One security researcher has already managed to replicate it, even as Google is trying to protect users from such attacks.

“It looks exactly like the original spoof,” said Matt Austin, director of security research at Contrast Security.

The phishing scheme—which may have circulated to 1 million Gmail users—is particularly effective because it fooled users with a dummy app that looked like Google Docs.

Recipients who received the email were invited to click a blue box that said “Open in Docs.” Those who did were brought to an actual Google account page that asks them to handover Gmail access to the dummy app.

Apple becomes world’s number one wearables vendor

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global wearables shipments reached 22 million units in the first quarter of 2017 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 16% marketshare and became the world’s largest wearables vendor, overtaking Fitbit, thanks to the Apple Watch.

“Apple shipped 3.5 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, rising 59% annually from 2.2 million units in Q1 2016,” says Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics. “Apple captured 16 percent global marketshare and overtook Fitbit to become the world’s largest wearables vendor. The new Apple Watch Series 2 is selling relatively well in the U.S., UK and elsewhere, due to enhanced styling, intensive marketing and a good retail presence.”

Fitbit shipped 2.9 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, falling 36% annually from 4.5 million in Q1 2016. The company has lost its wearables leadership to Apple, due to slowing demand for...

Apple’s share of the $600-plus Chinese smartphone market is 80%, according to new data from Counterpoint Research

“The premium segment $600+ or 4000rmb remained flat annually but shrunk 33% sequentially. Apple’s share of this super-premium segment remains at 80%, with five out of the top ten model SKUs belonging to Apple,” says Research Analyst Mengmeng Zhang. “The 4000 rmb and above segment mostly peaks during the Apple iPhone launch quarter and shrinks for the rest of the year. This volatility is because of Apple and affects Apple, as competition in the premium space is still weak. Though we are seeing Huawei with its Mate 9 series and players such as Vivo trying to make some movement in this segment to attract premium Android users.

Smartphones shipments in China grew a modest 4% annually during Q1 the first quarter of 2017 and declined 20% sequentially. Oppo and vivo were the fastest growing brands...

Imagination said in April that Apple had notified the British firm it was developing its own graphics chips and would no longer use Imagination’s processing designs in 15 months to two years time.

I get why Imagination wants to hang on to Apple, but it makes a lot of sense for Apple to make its own chips. It has the facilities and technical people to make it happen. Doing so means that Apple doesn’t have to pay licensing fees to a third-party, which means it keeps more the money from each sale.

Imagination Technologies says it's started a "dispute resolution procedure" with Apple, its biggest customer, after failing to resolve a standoff over licensing between the two companies.

Apple will probably pay graphics chip designer Imagination Technologies just one third of its current royalty rate as the smartphone giant wind downs their supply deal over the next two years, according to estimates by the UBS research group.

Qualcomm, in a smartphone chip licensing spat with Apple, will reportedly ask a U.S. government agency to ban the import of iPhones into the country.

Qualcomm plans to ask the U.S. International Trade Commission to ban imports of iPhones, which are built in Asia, according to a Bloomberg Technology report. The news report cited an unnamed person familiar with Qualcomm's strategy. 

A Qualcomm spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the news report.

The USITC has the power to ban imports into the U.S. for patent infringement, and the agency is frequently used by patent holders as an alternative or addition to slow-moving patent infringement lawsuits in U.S. courts.

Apple is such a powerful company that, for third-party suppliers, it's hard not to become reliant on the cash that it pays you. Engadget adds: But when Apple says that it's done, choosing to move whatever technology you provide in house, the results can be really painful. Imagination Technologies is one such supplier, famously designing the iPhone's PowerVR graphics as well as pushing MIPS, a rival to ARM. But back in March, Imagination publicly announced that Apple was ditching it in favor of its own graphics silicon. Now, Imagination has revealed that it's going to take Apple to dispute resolution, maintaining that the iPhone maker used Imagination's IP without permission. It's the second chipmaker in recent months who believes Apple isn't playing fair, with Qualcomm counter-suing Apple in its own licensing dispute. Secondly, Imagination is going to have to sell off MIPS and Ensigma, two parts of its business that aren't as profitable as PowerVR. Gamers with long memories will...

Tim Cook announces $1 billion investment in “...

Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage at an Apple event in September 2015. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple plans to create a $1 billion fund to invest in "advanced manufacturing" jobs in the United States. CEO Tim Cook made the announcement last night in a CNBC interview with Mad Money host Jim Cramer, and he says that Apple plans to announce its first investment later this month. Cook wants the new fund to create a "ripple effect" in the job market—he says that the manufacturing jobs created directly by the fund will also create service jobs needed to support them.

"Advanced manufacturing" is a bit vague, but generally speaking it's an umbrella term that encompasses creating technologically advanced products or improving the...

It’s not just the iPad; tablet shipments declined 8....

iPad sales continued to shrink in Apple's fiscal 2017 second quarter that ended April 1, 2017 (approximately 8.9 million tablets compared to 10 million in fiscal quarter 2016), but it’s not just Apple that’s seeing tablet sales decline. And there's a glimmer of good news for the iPad Pro.

The worldwide tablet market once again contracted in the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17) with total shipments of 36.2 million, a year-over-year decline of 8.5%, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. The first quarter contraction marks the tenth straight quarter that tablets have experienced a decline over the same quarter a year earlier, with the previous five quarters recording double-digit drops.

The tablet market is comprised of two different product categories, which are...

WaterField debuts travel-ready Bolt Crossbody tablet...

WaterField Designs has debuted the Bolt Crossbody, a slim-profile vertical laptop bag designed for commuters, professionals and adventure seekers. Available in three sizes to fit MacBooks, iPads and other devices, each Bolt includes a built-in, padded laptop-tablet sleeve, an Apple Pencil slot and several pockets.

The bag holds a day's necessities, MacBook or iPad, water bottle, wallet and travel documents. An extra wide, zippered opening allows access to the main compartment that houses a padded laptop sleeve, and simple pockets to keep the Apple Pencil and smaller items accessible. A premium leather flap closes with a silent magnetic snap over an expandable front pocket. Inside, a hidden scratch-free Ultrasuede hutch cradles an iPhone 7 or a similarly-sized smartphone. 

For frequently-used items, a body-side pocket closes with a self-locking zipper for added security. The Crossbody's gold, water-resistant lining boosts visibility of bag contents. An adjustable...

FBI unable to access half of mobile devices, says...

FBI director James Comey yesterday told a Senate oversight committee that the FBI has been unable to access almost half of the mobile devices it tried to examine in the first half of the fiscal year, reports TechCrunch.

Comey said the FBI had been unable to access the contents of more than 3,000 mobile devices in the first half of the fiscal year, using what he described as “appropriate and available technical tools, even though there was the legal authority to do so.” He said that represented “nearly half” of all the mobile devices it had attempted to access in that time frame.

Comey made the statement in apparent support of the latest attempt at forcing phone manufacturers to provide backdoor access to the authorities …...

Apple patent involves the combination of dialogue,...

Apple wants to make it easier for content producers to combine dialogue, music and special effects and, especially, improve the intelligibility of dialog on TV sets. The company has been granted a patent (number 20170126343) for “audio stem delivery and control.”

It involves a system and method for playing back content that includes a video stream and a final audio mix that represents sounds for the video stream. An interface receives the video stream and the final audio mix. The final audio mix includes a dialogue stem and a music and effects stem that together represent an entirety of sounds for the video stream. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that sound program content, including movies and television shows, are often composed of several distinct audio components, including dialogue of characters/actors, music, and sound effects. Each of these component parts called stems may include multiple spatial channels and are mixed together prior to delivery to a...

Apple: Two million U.S. jobs. And counting.

Apple’s job creation web site:

The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states. Last year, we spent over $50 billion with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers and manufacturers. Since we launched the App Store in 2008, U.S. developers have earned over $16 billion in App Store sales worldwide. And we’re just getting started.

The site breaks the job numbers up as follows:

  • 80,000 Apple employees
  • 450,000 Jobs through our U.S.-based suppliers
  • 1,530,000 U.S. jobs attributable to the App Store ecosystem

The site also breaks the numbers down, state by state.

During a Wednesday evening interview with CNBC's Jim Cramer, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company has created a $1 billion manufacturing fund to help stimulate job growth in the U.S. 

He offered no details about the fund, but noted that the "advanced manufacturing fund" will come from the company's U.S. investment pool. He pointed out that Apple has to borrow money to fund domestic operations since most of the company's $256 billion cash is overseas. 

Also, the tech giant has launched a new Apple's new Job Creation webpage that highlights the company’s efforts to the U.S. workplace. It says: “The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states.

No company has done as much damage to the perceived value of software, and the sustainability of being an independent developer, as Apple …

Apple loves the little red dot

Straits Times, about the recently unveiled signage above the soon-to-open Singapore Apple Store:

The barricades in front of the upcoming Apple Store at Orchard Road’s Knightsbridge mall came down on Wednesday night (May 3).

But the store has not been unveiled. Instead, three icons – Apple, Love, Red Dot – adorn the tall store’s tall glass doors. It means Apple loves the little red dot, or Apple loves Singapore. There is also the wording Apple Orchard Road – the official name of the Apple retail store – below the icons.

Check out the pictures. I find the signage charming, some insightful localized marketing on Apple’s part.

Updated drone footage shows landscaping, solar panel...

The Apple Park campus edges ever closer to completion and a new drone video courtesy of Duncan Sinfield shows progress as landscaping and other touches are applied…

The overall footage still resembles a construction scene and there’s definitely more dirt than greenery at this point. Factor in a fair amount of machinery and it’s not quite completely arboreal, but it’s getting there.

Additional progress has also been made on the spaceship design with the solar panel roof, as well as Steve Jobs Theater and more. Windows are being installed along the outside of the building, while work continues on parking and other areas.

Apple originally announced that its new headquarters would be named Apple Park back in February, while the company also stated that the 1,000-seat auditorium would be named Steve Jobs Theater. While employees were expected to begin moving in during the month of April, it’s currently hard to tell if employees have moved in or are...

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Users of other 3D design applications can experience their designs with inStudio VR's industry standard file support.

It's been a while since we've had a giveaway, but we think you'll love this one! As a nod to "May the Fourth" (Star Wars Day), Apple World Today and AmpliFi have teamed up to give one lucky reader a free limited edition black AmpliFi HD Mesh Router valued at $349.

This is the same AmpliFi HD Mesh Router setup that our very own Dennis Sellers said was "another excellent candidate for an Apple router replacement." But it has one special difference -- it's black instead of the usual white case. 

Using advanced 802.11ac Wi-Fi, multiple self-configuring radios, and advanced antenna technology along with small plug-in mesh mesh points, you can see just how fast your connection is on the base station's display. An iOS app makes it fast (less than 60 seconds!) to...

As we get closer to WWDC, it’s fun to imagine what Apple might unveil, how close the rumors will be to reality, and how indignant we can get when it isn’t exactly what we’d wanted. This week we wonder about the Siri speaker, as well as the next version of watchOS. The key to both is better Siri performance than Apple’s ever managed to pull off so far, but we’re excited about the possibilities.

Elsewhere, everybody loves AirPods, malware’s gotta mal, and Kara Swisher absolutely demolishes Travis “Boober” Kalanick. Enjoy.
