OpenSwitch Moves Under Linux Foundation Umbrella


The Linux Foundation on Wednesday announced that it has taken the OpenSwitch Project under its wing. OpenSwitch last year began as a joint project of Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Broadcom, VMware, Accton, Intel and Arista. OpenSwitch is an open source, Linux-based network operating system, or NOS, that works with enterprise-grade switches from multiple vendors. OpenSwitch removes interoperability issues and complex licensing structures that are inherent in proprietary systems.

Former Apple ad guru Ken Segall says company is...

Ken Segall, the former Apple ad consultant who coined the iMac name, wrote the copy for the famous ‘Think different’ campaign and authored the book Insanely Simple, says that Apple is beginning to lose touch with its heritage of simplicity. He gave his assessment of Apple’s ‘state of simplicity’ in a piece for the Guardian.

Though Apple’s customers remain fiercely loyal, the natives are getting restless. A growing number of people are sensing that Tim Cook’s Apple isn’t as simple as Steve’s Apple. They see complexity in expanding product lines, confusing product names, and the products themselves.

While the Guardian‘s headline makes the piece seem entire critical, it’s actually very balanced …

The Logi BASE is a good charging device/stand combo...

Logitech's Logi BASE is the first device to charge your iPad Pro (either the 12.9-inch or the 9.7-inch version) through the Smart Connector. In fact, Logitech is the only company (at least, of which I’m aware) that’s taking advantage of the connector, so it deserves kudos for supporting new Apple technology.

Beyond that, the $99 BASE is also a good charger/cradle combo (keep the “combo” description in mind as you read this). Magnets in the charging cradle guide your iPad Pro into place to align with the Smart Connector. Just drop your Apple tablet in, and you’re good to go. One downside to the Logi BASE is that you’ll have to remove a Smart Keyboard to attach it. The Logitech device occupies the Smart Connector, and there’s no passthrough option or any extra port.

The Logi BASE displays an iPad Pro at a 70-degree angle for viewing while the tablet is charging. With it sitting...

With CopyLess for OS X, you may not copy less -- but...

If you need more power than the build-in Mac OS X clipboard offers, but not as many bells and whistles as ClipBuddy, check out CopyLess. It offers plenty of clipping/pasting power for most Mac users.

If you're like me, you get irritated by constantly have to jump between applications to copy and paste things. CopyLess rids you of this nuisance.

CopyLess is a no-brainer to use. Just copy text, images, files or other data formats and you can access, preview and paste whenever and wherever you wish. 

You can instantly paste any items from CopyLess to the active application -- or just put the item to the system clipboard to make the item available for the...

Fashion Friday: My OS X Jaguar T-shirt

Over the years, I’ve collected lots of nifty T-shirts from trade shows I’ve covered — mainly the late, lamented Macworld Expos held in Boston, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Paris. This is the last week I’ll be “modeling” some of the items in my collection. I’m shown wearing my OS X Jaguar T-shirt from the launch of OS X 10.2.

Released on Aug. 23, 2002, it was the third major release of OS X. Jaguar added such features as MPEG-4 support in QuickTime, an Address Book, Inkwell for handwriting recognition, and Apple Mail. It also included the first release of Apple's Zeroconf implementation, Rendezvous (later referred to as Bonjour), which allows devices over a network to discover each other and display available services to the user, such as file sharing, shared scanners, and printers.

Apple Reportedly Developing 5K Retina Thunderbolt...

MojoKid quotes a report from HotHardware: If you head over to Apple's website, the Cupertino outfit will happily sell you a 27-inch Thunderbolt display for $999, at least until its inventory runs out. Word on the web is that it's nearly out of stock and Apple doesn't plan to replenish them. Instead, Apple will launch a new version of its Thunderbolt monitor, one that's been upgraded to a 5K resolution and has a discrete GPU stuffed inside. It's an interesting product actually, if you think about it. Depending on the task, it can take some serious graphics muscle to drive a 5K resolution display. It amounts to over 14.7 million pixels (5120x2880), compared to Apple's current generation Thunderbolt display which runs at 2560x1440, or less than 3.7 million pixels. Apple's thinking is likely that if it integrates a GPU capable of driving a 5K resolution into the display itself, it won't have to worry about trying to balance graphics performance with thin and light designs for its...

Minecraft Tops 100 Million Sales

An anonymous reader writes: Mojang has announced today that its game 'Minecraft' has passed 100 million sales across all platforms, including PC, Mac, consoles and mobile. Nearly 53,000 copies of the game have been sold every single day around the world since the beginning of the year. What may be even more impressive is the fact that more than 40 million people actively open up a Minecraft world each month and play around with a blocky axe, shovel and sword. According to Wikipedia, Minecraft is the second-bestselling video game of all-time next to Tetris. Tetris has sold a whopping 495 million copies, so don't expect Minecraft to earn the number one spot anytime soon. Minecraft did acquire Mojang almost two years ago, and there has been no word on a sequel as the company continues to release Minecraft for new platforms like HoloLens and Samsung's Gear VR. Soon, there will even be a version made just for China too.

Yesterday, well-respected venture capitalist Mary Meeker released her annual Internet Trends Report. Inside the over 200 slide PowerPoint were some interesting numbers relating to the continuing battle between iOS and Android. As we reported last night, Meeker’s report showed iOS continue to decline in marketshare, while Android continues to gain. In many ways, the current split between Android and iOS in terms of market share and unit shipments is very similar to the split between Mac and PC shipments and marketshare. And it’s been a long time coming for Apple.

Apple’s current Thunderbolt Display, as impressive as it is, is on its way out.

Following up on previous rumors, Apple looks to be running out of stock for the unit with no signs of replenishing inventory. A new set of rumors has it that Apple’s next-gen Thunderbolt Display will offer a 5K resolution display of 5120 x 2880 pixels. Sources have also indicated that Apple will take the display in a surprising direction, specifically suggesting that Apple plans to integrate a dedicated external GPU into the display itself.

The idea of a GPU within a display is pretty new, but this might be the new standard for Macs in the future. Due to the immense graphics needs required to push 5K worth of pixels, normal super high-resolution displays require connected...

Apple may not have to pay $533 million to Smartflash. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on May 26 invalidated two of three patents owned by Smartflash, which won the award after a jury trial against the iPhone maker in February 2015, reports Bloomberg.

The patent agency found that the two patents never should have been issued in the first place because the idea of storing and paying for data is an abstract concept, not a specific invention. In March, the agency said the same thing about a third Smartflash patent.

However, as Bloomberg notes, the ruling doesn’t end the case. Smartflash can ask the Patent Trial and Appeal Board to reconsider. If that that doesn’t work, the patent holder can file an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Even though Amazon has previously hinted at making a Prime Video app for the Apple TV, don’t hold your breath for it to appear anytime soon. When asked at this year’s Code Conference why Amazon doesn’t sell streaming media boxes from Apple and Google, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said, “When we sell [streaming] devices, we want our player — our Prime Video player — to be on the device, and we want it to be on the device with acceptable business terms.” As many have suspected, there appears to be some concession Amazon wants from Apple before releasing an Apple TV app. What that could be is unknown; Apple does require a 30 percent cut of sales made through apps, but Amazon could easily circumvent that by requiring users to sign up for Amazon Prime outside the app.

Apple might put a GPU right inside the Thunderbolt...

A Thunderbolt Display will run you a cool grand, but Apple hasn’t updated the external monitor/laptop dock in about five years. If you’re in the market for a second screen, you might want to hold off, because rumor has it that the Thunderbolt Display is getting a huge upgrade this year—and we just might see it at the Worldwide Developers Conference this month.

WWDC isn’t typically a hardware-palooza, but 9to5Mac is reporting that the refreshed display might take the stage for one big reason: a GPU baked right inside. Why on earth would Apple do that? Well, the display is rumored to be 5K with a 5120x2880 resolution. The MacBooks you connect to a 5K display likely won’t have the graphics processing power to take advantage of that insanely high resolution. The (rumored) solution: integrating the GPU inside the display.

Virtual Reality -- AKA VR -- is getting a lot of press this year thanks to the overpriced and non-Mac-compatible Oculus Rift VR headset.

Brittany A. Roston, writing for Slashgear: In 2014, smartphone shipments grew a massive 27.8-percent, and the next year, 2015, smartphone shipments grew by 10.5-percent. The International Data Corporation (IDC) expects that we'll see a substantial slowdown in shipments this year, with 2016 (possibly) ending up at around only 3.1-percent. According to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, this year will probably see about 1.48 billion smartphone shipments, a number that is estimated to climb to 1.84 billion by 2020.According to IDC, Android will see a YoY (year-on-year) growth of 6.2%, whereas Apple's iOS will drop by 2% this year. Also this year, the average selling price of an Android handset will be $218, which IDC expects to fall below $200 in 2019.

Worldwide tablet shipments are expected to decline for the second straight year in 2016, dropping 9.6% compared to 2015 volumes, according to a new International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker forecast. However, that will change in 2018, adds the research group.

The tablet market in totality has seen its peak and will face down years in 2016 and 2017, followed by a slight rebound in 2018 and beyond driven by detachable tablet growth. Right now the detachable category only accounts for 16% of the market and IDC expects it to reach 31% in 2020.

Tablet life cycles have proven to be more like PCs a few years back, which is likely to be somewhere around four years, notes the research group. Tablet manufacturers, both large and small, are slowly shifting focus toward the detachable tablet market segment, which...

Apple Releases First Preview of Swift 3.0

DaGoatSpanka quotes a report from MacRumors: Apple yesterday released the first preview build of Swift 3.0, a major update to Apple's open source Swift programming language. Swift 3.0's official release is expected to come in late 2016 after proposed changes are finalized. The Swift 3.0 preview can be downloaded from the official Swift website. There are versions of Swift 3.0 available for Xcode 7.2, Ubuntu 14.04, and Ubuntu 15.10. [Swift 3.0 is not source compatible with Swift 2.2 as it introduces source-breaking changes, but going forward, the goal is to make Swift 3.0 source compatible with future Swift language updates.] Swift 3.0 will likely be shown at Apple's upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

Apple has today launched its Back to School deals for students. Similar to last year, Apple will bundle a free pair of Beats headphones with the purchase of an eligible Apple product for college. If you buy an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro or MacBook Air, you get a free pair of Beats Solo2 wireless headphones worth $299. iPad Pro, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 buyers can get a free pair of Beats Powerbeats2 wireless headphones, worth $199 retail.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases surface, show off...

Cases claiming to be designed for the next-generation iPhones, currently being dubbed the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, have been released online today. Although the cases do not show anything drastically different to what we’ve been hearing for months, with most of the chassis mirroring the appearance of the iPhone 6s, it is interesting nonetheless to see the design formalized into cases that are apparently going to be on sale by the end of the month.

The case renders include a depiction of what the dual camera system on the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus could look like, suggesting that it will have a binocular-esque appearance of two camera iris holes side-by-side with a sizeable gap between them. The camera flash and rear microphone are also aligned horizontally. The iPhone 7 Plus case also includes space for the 3-pin Smart Connector on the back of the device — more pictures after...

The once-per-year release of Voyager Live, which hit servers last month, is an Xubuntu-based distribution showcasing the Xfce 4.12.2 desktop environment. Its features include the Avant Window Navigator, a limited Conky desktop display of basic system information, and more than 300 photographs and animations that can be used as desktop backgrounds.

Never one to shy away from provocative opinions, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the Re/code conference that Apple may have left it too late to compete effectively in the autonomous car field. He also said that not all companies exploring the idea appreciate the scale of the undertaking.

I think they should have embarked on this project sooner. I don’t think they’ll be in production sooner until 2020. Is that too late? […]

The sheer scale of automotive manufacturing is hard to imagine until you see the plants. The size of the industrial infrastructure is astonishing.

Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends Report for 2016 became available this evening, and as usual it serves as a great tool to analyze the ongoing battle between Android and iOS. Apple saw its first ever decline in revenue last quarter and Meeker’s report definitely takes that into account. One slide from  the report shows the marketshare and average selling point difference. As usual, Android has a commanding lead in marketshare and shipments, while Apple dominates in ASP. There are a few differences this year, however.

In 2015, Apple Pay usage totaled $10.9 billion, but the majority of that was in the United States.

Enlarge / The current (chunky, old) Thunderbolt Displays. (credit: Apple)

Remember the Thunderbolt Display? Because sometimes it seems like Apple doesn't; it's been nearly five years since the last time the monitor-plus-laptop-dock was updated, and it's increasingly an anachronism as high-resolution Retina displays take over the lineup. For some time now, the Thunderbolt Display has actually been larger and heavier than the 27-inch iMac, which has a whole computer inside of it.

One of the roadblocks to releasing a new 5K Retina-capable version of the Thunderbolt Display is the DisplayPort graphics interface, which in its current iteration (1.2) is only capable of driving a...

After tying with Samsung last year in terms of smartphone satisfaction, Apple has (barley) edged past its rival to take the top spot this year, according to a new American Customer Satisfaction Index report — as noted by CNET.

In 2015, both companies scored 80 out of 100 for customer satisfaction. This year Apple inched up to score 81 out of 100, while Samsung stayed where it was the year before.

Apple was the only major phone maker to improve in customer satisfaction, according to the ACSI, which attributed the improvement to its large-screen models, introduced with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Among the top smartphones for customer satisfaction...

Google will help people find lost iPhones

Google is giving iPhone users another way to find their misplaced devices -- by searching the Web for it. 

Soon, when iPhone or Android users enter "I lost my phone" at Google.com, the search engine will respond with options that will allow them to ring the device, or locate it on a map. Right now, users can already get access to that functionality through Google's My Account feature, which serves as the nexus for people to understand and access the information connected to their Google account.

Unlike Apple's Find my iPhone, Google's phone location feature isn't capable of locking an iPhone or remotely erasing it. Still, it may be a useful feature for someone who have misplaced his phone and just wants to figure out where it is.

According to a document on Onyx Solar’s website, Apple “has decided to commit itself to OnyxSolar’s designer photovoltaic technology for its new stores. The first of these is located in the heart of San Francisco, the company’s home town.”

Photos have leaked depicting alleged components destined for the rumored redesigned MacBook Pro, giving us a look at the thin body of the device, the space where a rumored OLED touch panel will be positioned, and its possible ports.

Notable apps and app updates for June 1, 2016

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.

Mac OS X Apps/Updates

Tension Software has introduced Menu Calendar 1.0 for Mac OS X. The tool makes a small calendar available under the menu bar in any running app.

Clicking Menu Calendar’s icon under the menu bar not only shows a small standard calendar that you can use to navigate inside any month, it also makes available a small area under the calendar for date calculation. You can add (or subtract) days, months, years and the app will instantly show the resulting day.

You can also optionally select from the menu to have Menu Calendar launched any time you log in to your Mac.

The app requires Mac OS X 10.10 or higher. It costs $1.99 and is available at...

If you get your home internet connection via your local cable provider, then it may be wise to invest in your own cable modem. Why? Have a look at your bill. If the cable company provided you with a modem, you might notice that it’s charging you a monthly lease fee.

This leasing option seems to be more common in the US, but investing in your own modem could end up saving you money in the long run. Outright owning a modem also means that you can sell it once you’re finished using it.

Saving money isn’t necessarily the only benefit of purchasing or upgrading your own modem. It may be possible to achieve significantly faster download and upload speeds by taking advantage of new hardware advancements....

Comment: One year later, Apple Watch has kickstarted...

For all of its shortcomings, the Apple Watch has redeemed itself for me with its fitness and health tracking features. I wear it primarily because it’s a watch but I like (the idea of) having Siri always there plus access to important alerts instantly. The sports watch part can be ignored if you’re not interested, but being one device means its still there if you decide to explore activity tracking later.

That’s been my experience. I generally ignored activity tracking for the first year, but decided at the end of March to use the start of April as a reason to pay attention. The Activity app uses week- and month-long streaks to mark achievements, so the start of a new month (like today) can be motivating.

My real goal was to lose weight using Apple Watch as a motivator. Two months in, I’ve been very happy with the results so far and have...

Apple releases Swift 3.0 preview 1 ahead of WWDC

If you’re a Mac or iOS developer, this is huge.

Prior to the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has release Swift 3.0 preview 1, the tech preview for the latest version of its Swift programming language.

According to the Swift-Evolution GitHub page, the primary goal of Swift 3.0 is to “solidify and mature the Swift language and development experience.” As it turns out, this also means that there will be source breaking changes this time around, but Swift 3.x and 4+ are said to hopefully remain as source compatible as possible.

Developers can grab the preview as well as implement it into Ubuntu 14.04, 15.10 or directly into Apple’s Xcode. With WWDC 2016 coming in the following weeks, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to believe that later Xcode betas might have the...

Podcast 510: No more 16GB iPhone?

The iPhone doesn’t even get announced at WWDC—well, not typically, anyway. But this year the run-up to WWDC is silly with iPhone rumors, and Glenn and Susie are in a tizzy about two in particular. One is that we may finally see the end of the era when iPhone storage started at a paltry 16GB. The other is that we may see the end of the tick-tock cycle for iPhone upgrades—this year’s iPhone is rumored to keep the same form-factor as the iPhone 6 and 6s, with a bigger redesign pushed out to 2017.

Elsewhere, don’t make billionaires angry. Don’t buy into that study about rats getting cancer from smartphone radiation. Don’t worry about that ridiculous anti-encryption bill proposal, since it looks to be DOA. Don’t be surprised if Apple buys a cable company someday. And don’t miss the Macworld WWDC Happy Hour.

As I noted yesterday, a revamped Apple Thunderbolt Display could be announced at the upcoming Worldwide Developer Conference. If not then, almost certainly whenever new MacBook Pros are introduced (probably in August). A new rumor says the displays could include an integrated GPU.

A GPU, or graphics processing unit, is a single-chip processor that creates lighting effects and transforms objects every time a 3D scene is redrawn. These are mathematically-intensive tasks, which otherwise, would put quite a strain on the central processing unit (CPU).  Removing this burden from the CPU frees up cycles that can be used for other tasks.
