Twitter Lite is a faster, smaller Twitter built for...

Twitter launched Thursday a ‘Lite’ version of its service that runs from the browser on a smartphone, in a bid to attract customers in emerging markets, who have flaky Internet connections or are wary of spending too much on data.

The micro-blogging service said that Lite had been designed as a Progressive Web App in collaboration with Google and is available at mobile.twitter.com, and does not require an app store. It is said to take up less than 1MB on the device.

Lite offers key features of Twitter such as the timeline, tweets, direct messages, trends, profiles, media uploads, notifications. With features like data savings, offline access to loaded content, resilience on flaky networks and fast load times, it is designed for emerging markets where networks are still patchy and data expensive.

Australian regulator takes Apple to court over...

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has commenced proceedings in the Federal Court against Apple Australia and its U.S.-based parent company, Apple, for allegedly making “false, misleading, or deceptive representations” about consumers’ rights under the Australian Consumer Law.

It is seeking pecuniary penalties, injunctions, declarations, compliance program orders, corrective notices, and costs against Apple.

The Australian competition regulator and national consumer law champion started an investigation following reports relating to “error 53”, an inaccuracy which disabled some consumers’ iPads or iPhones after downloading an iOS update.

The latest McAfee Threat Report shows that macOS malware grew by 744% in 2016, with around 460,000 instances detected. Behind the headline number, though, are a couple of reassuring facts.

First, while Mac malware is on the increase, it is almost a rounding error when viewed alongside Windows malware. All malware detected last year combined totalled more than 600M instances. Of this, around 15M examples were mobile malware – almost all of it Android …

How to change your desktop picture in macOS Sierra

My Mac’s desktop is so cluttered with files and folders that it’s impossible to see the desktop image. However, if yours isn’t and you want to change the desktop picture, it’s easy to do.

In the Desktop & Screen Saver preferences, you can change the image displayed on your desktop. Your Mac comes with dozens of desktop pictures to choose from, but you can also use your own pictures, or choose a solid color. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Desktop & Screen Saver, then click Desktop.

Then find the picture you want to use. To use a picture that comes with your Mac, select Desktop Pictures below Apple. To use a solid color, select Solid Colors below Apple.

If your image is in another folder, click Add the plus sign, navigate to and select the folder, then click Choose. Click the picture you want...

Apple reportedly signs two year deal with Samsung to...

Apple is preparing its supply chain for the onslaught of next-generation iPhone sales in the fall, expected to be a bumper year with much anticipation for the radical ‘iPhone 8’ redesign. According to ETNews, via Digitimes, Apple has agreed a two year contract with Samsung Display to supply curved iPhone OLED panels.

Samsung is apparently upping capacity to as much as 92 million units in 2017, as demand from Apple rises. Apple uses OLED in Apple Watch and the MacBook Pro Touch Bar already, but the iPhone 8 represents the first time the company will use the display technology in the iPhone, it’s biggest product.

OmniOutliner 5

OmniOutliner now comes in two editions: Pro and Essentials. The Pro edition has all the power that we’ve always brought to OmniOutliner, with support for multiple columns, attachments, focus, automation, and so on—and for version 5 we’ve added even more, with advanced filtering, word count, typewriter mode, customizable keyboard shortcuts, and so on.

For the new Essentials edition, our goal was to introduce the joys and benefits of outlining to a much broader audience than our core Pro customers. Our focus for this edition was on making OmniOutliner much simpler, and much more affordable.

Ken Case and the folks at Omni are just great people and developers.

Judge warns Uber in self-driving car lawsuit

“I’ve never seen a record this strong in 42 years,” [U.S. District Judge William] Alsup said. A hearing on Waymo’s request for an injunction on Uber’s self-driving program is scheduled for May.

Waymo sued ride services company Uber earlier this year, claiming that former Waymo executive Anthony Levandowski downloaded over 14,000 confidential documents before leaving the company to join Uber. Waymo said Uber benefited from those documents and has sued for damages and to stop Uber from using the technology Levandowski allegedly stole.

Additionally, it allows for objects that can process a broader set of commands. This reduces the work needed to perform during a drawing operation.

Xiaomi says it's misunderstood. Once compared with Apple for its sleek smartphones and charismatic leadership, the Chinese startup is seeking an image makeover as it tries to recover from a sales-growth slide. From a report: And the brand its billionaire co-founder Lei Jun wants to be compared with: Costco Wholesale Corp., the Issaquah, Washington-based warehouse retailer that sells everything from wine and diamond rings to bulging boxes of cereal and fruit at knockdown prices. Xiaomi's revenue will probably reach $15 billion this year as the Beijing-based maker of products ranging from pens and air purifiers to TVs and smartphones adopts a new business model and fine-tunes operations, Lei, 47, said in a recent interview. "We are not Apple," Lei, clad in a black polo shirt and blue jeans, said at Xiaomi's Bengaluru office in India, its biggest overseas market. "We have the same value system as Costco. We want users to enjoy better products at an affordable price."

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or the iPhone 7s or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like the next phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don’t expect the headphone jack to return.

About 30 percent of the deal likely will go to the lawyers who sued—about $1.59 million. The remainder is earmarked for the estimated 7 million members of the class. If distributed evenly, that's about 53 cents for each class member—and within the ballpark of distribution ratios of other Silicon Valley privacy class-action settlements.

Why iOS 10.3.1 is a "must-install" update

This week's iOS 10.3.1 update might have seemed anticlimactic by comparison to the original 10.3 update, but a quick look at the security notes issued for the update shows a very good reason why every owner of an iOS device running 10.3 should install the new update immediately.

The update patches a vulnerability discovered and documented by Gal Beniamini of Google Project Zero in which "an attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip". This vulnerability took advantage of a bug in the code in Broadcom's Wi-Fi stack, which Apple uses in its devices.

At this point, Craig Young of cyber security firm Tripwire's Vulnerability and Exposures Research Team is suggesting that anyone with a device with an affected Broadcom chip -- which includes the iPhone 4 and newer, all iPads and all iPod touch devices -- should disable Wi-Fi in public spaces until a fix is...

No, you don't need to type in the words. GIPHY Says uses the speech recognition capabilities of your iPhone and turns what you say into text automatically. Within seconds,  you can be annoying friends, relatives and co-workers with your latest GIF creations. 

GIPHY Says takes videos in both landscape and portrait orientation -- I just did these examples in landscape because they're easier to embed on a web page. My only wish? That the app would allow you to switch to the rear camera.

Comment: Apple’s announced intention to design its...

Apple’s announcement earlier this week that it plans to design its own GPUs for future iPhones and iPads did more than signal bad news for Imagination Technologies. It also added weight to the idea that Apple will at some point want to ditch Intel chips in Macs in favour of its own design of ARM-based CPUs.

The arguments in favor of Apple designing its own Mac processors are exactly the same ones that led the company to design its own A-series chips for iOS devices. Apple gets total control – something the company values highly.

Control of costs is part of it, of course. Tim Cook in particular got to the position he’s in today in large part by demonstrating a mastery of the supply-chain, and a significant goal there is to keep costs as low as possible in order to maximise margins. Apple eliminates royalty...

Report: Apple Watch Series 3 late this year;...

A supply-chain report backs an earlier claim that the next-generation Apple Watch – which would be dubbed the Series 3 if Apple retains its existing naming scheme – is scheduled for launch in the second half of this year. It also suggests that Apple will continue to offer a choice of two generations of Apple Watch at different price points.

Digitimes reports that while Quanta will remain the sole supplier of the new model, a new supplier, Compal Electronics, will be added to the roster to continue production of older models …

Thursday night NFL games now stream on Amazon Prime...

Thursday night NFL games streamed with stunning success on Twitter last year, but for the season, football’s jumping ship. The NFL and Amazon announced they’ve reached a $50 million agreement for streaming rights to 10 Thursday Night Football games for the 2017 season—a five-fold increase over the $10 million Twitter paid for last year’s games.

The agreement’s a major win for Amazon, which has been pushing hard to expand its TV offerings. It’s a bummer for folks who’ve ditched cable, though. While Twitter streamed TNF games to the world, making them freely available to cord-cutters even if watchers weren’t Twitter users, Amazon’s NFL livestreams will be limited to paying Amazon Prime subscribers. An Amazon Prime subscription costs $100 per year.

Rumor: ‘Apple Watch 3’ to ship in the second half of...

The “Apple Watch 3” is expected to ship in the second half of the year, according to DigiTimes Research. Based on past releases, this makes sense. The report says that Taiwan’s Compal Electronics will join Quanta Computers, also based in Taiwan, in making the Apple smartwatch.

Apple is estimated to have shipped 11.9 million Apple Watches in 2016. This gives the Cupertino, California-based company 49% of overall smartwatch shipments, according to the Canalys research group.

The fanciful images accompanying this article are courtesy of “Daily Star” and “SmartStockNews.”

Susquehanna Financial Group semiconductor analyst Christopher Rolland said in a March note to clients that the next gen Apple Watch will include a SIM card and support LTE (a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals).

Scania — a major Swedish automotive industry manufacturer of commercial vehicles, specifically heavy trucks and buses — is introducing Apple CarPlay to the new truck generation's infotainment system. The company is among the first in the industry to offer Apple CarPlay in heavy trucks.   

"Scania's infotainment system will work with Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while on the move," says Björn Fahlström, vice president, Product Management, Scania Trucks. "Apple CarPlay support is being introduced in June 2017, and earlier devices can be updated, provided that they have voice recognition. By intro­ducing this functionality, we will offer even more driver comfort and increased safety. For truck drivers, who spend a lot of time behind the wheel, everything that makes life on the road easier, simpler and safer is very much appreciated...

The capability to pay with Apple’s mobile payment system to send money transfers through the Western Union app in the United Kingdom is planned for later this year. Today, 60 percent of all Western Union digital money transfer transactions globally are initiated via a mobile device, says Khalid Fellahi, senior vice president and general manager, Western Union Digital.

Apple, Samsung draw a line in the sand over $400...

Apple and Samsung “dug trenches” in California federal court Monday for the latest battle in their long-running war over smartphone patents, laying out arguments for how a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on Apple’s nearly $400 million damages award should be applied, reports Law 360.

In January Samsung told the Federal Circuit that Apple was flat wrong in arguing that a recent U.S. Supreme Court finding on design patent awards didn’t disturb its claim on a $400 million award, saying it took “chutzpah” for the iPhone maker to try to stop Samsung’s new trial. In December 2016, the Supreme Court sided with Samsung, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American...

I dug into Christoph Kabisch’s new iBook with zero expectations. A look back at the original iPhone? How good could this be?

As it turns out, the book was a fascinating read with lots of detail, both in word and images. I owned the original iPhone, was there when it was announced and rolled out. I thought I remembered the details, but this book made it clear how much slipped out of my memory.

When you read it, be sure to tap on each image. Some move to a larger frame, others are 3D models that rotate.

The book is only 99 cents. Here’s a link. Worth it for the pictures alone. A terrific journey back in time.

New Siri patent

Patently Apple:

In the future, if Siri doesn’t recognize the voice of the owner of the device, accessing Siri or the computer associated with it will be impossible.

And:

Today a user will say “hey Siri” and Siri will respond. In the future, the command to call up Siri may be customized to your voice. For instance, a user sets up Siri to recognize the phrase “Hey there, Boss.” The customized phrase and the voice must match what’s in Siri’s database before the digital assistant will respond. The customized phrase is technically referred to in Apple’s patent filings as a “Lexical Trigger.”

And:

In the future, in order to access Siri, a person will have to know a passcode, use a fingerprint or be recognized by the system via face recognition. Unless your iDevice recognizes you on multiple security levels, Siri will remain unresponsive to commands or requests.

As long as I can turn this off via a setting, this seems like a natural evolution....

You asked for it, we brought it back. When we ran a deal last month for a 3 pack of 2-in-1 Lightning to Headphone Jack Charging Cables for $21.99, we didn't realize how popular it was going to be. Apparently there are a LOT of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus owners who need the convenience of being able to charge their phones while listening to music on headphones. We've brought back the deal for a limited time.

That price tag is 56% off the regular retail price of these cables from Sky Innovations. Here are some of the details:

  • Use your existing wired headsets or headphones w/ your new iPhone
  • Enhance audio experience by allowing wired listening

Rumor: ‘iPhone 8’ might not launch until October or...

Normally, new iPhones launch around September. However, a report from the Chinese language site, Economic Daily News (as noted by MacRumors.com), says the “iPhone 8” may not arrive until October or November because suppliers are encountering "technical issues" because of differences in the display lamination process and challenges involved in integrating the 3D sensing front camera system. 

The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) says that this rumor makes sense. And I think we’d all rather that Apple take time to get the new smartphone just right instead of trying to meet an arbitrary deadline.

Also, in regards to the next generation iPhone (shown in a fanciful mock-up), that have been rumors that it will cost upwards of $1,000. However, in a note to clients — as noted by 9to5Mac — UBS analyst...

Tim Berners-Lee wins $1 million Turing Award

MIT News:

MIT Professor Tim Berners-Lee, the researcher who invented the World Wide Web and is one of the world’s most influential voices for online privacy and government transparency, has won the most prestigious honor in computer science, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) A.M. Turing Award. Often referred to as “the Nobel Prize of computing,” the award comes with a $1 million prize provided by Google.

Tim Berners-Lee changed the world as much as anyone else in the computing or business world. Folks like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk etc. all changed the world, no doubt. But all of them became incredibly wealthy in the process. Nice to see this announcement.

We’ve been hearing conflicting reports about the likely retail cost of the iPhone 8. Some reports have suggested that the price could exceed $1,000, the price reflecting its premium positioning in the line-up thanks to features like an OLED screen and augmented reality.

A report yesterday contradicted this, suggesting that the price will actually remain in three figures, somewhere around the $850-900 range.

Does this kind of difference matter … ?

NFL and Amazon reach one year deal, Thursday night...

Wall Street Journal:

The National Football League has reached a deal to stream 10 Thursday night games with Amazon.com Inc., the online retailer that is aggressively trying to position itself as a premier source of entertainment content.

The one-year agreement is valued at around $50 million, according to people familiar with the matter. That price tag represents a fivefold increase over the NFL’s agreement with Twitter Inc. for the same number of games last season.

To me, this deal makes much more sense than last year’s Twitter deal. The Twitter deal seemed like dipping a toe in the waters, an experiment with no real end goal. With Amazon, the deal seems more practical, a move to drive traffic, to increase Amazon Prime signups. Note that the games will still be available on TV via CBS and NBC.

Not sure this kind of move would ever make sense for Apple, unless buying an Apple TV was the only way you could watch Thursday Night Football.

Recently published patent application shows how...

Apple may be looking to bring both the Touch ID and Touch Bar features to an updated version of the Magic Keyboard.

A new Apple patent application, or at least some form of the application, shows a device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit. In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device.

This change would address one of the main concerns expressed about the Touch Bar on the 2016 MacBook Pro, in that its advantages would become moot if the user were using an external keyboard.

Apple has also been rumored to have been holding discussions with dynamic keyboard maker Sonder, so there may be some interesting things coming down the pipe in this area.

Apple offers slight speed bump for current Mac Pro,...

Apple’s pro-grade machine got a bit of a speed bump today, albeit it might not be the overhaul that users were expecting.

The tower, which has remained without an update for more than three years, is still available with the two base models retailing for $2,999 and $3,999. The lower-end model jumps from from a quad-core Xeon CPU to a 6-core one, and gets dual G500 GPUs (an upgrade over the G300 GPUs), while the step-up model gets an 8-core CPU (up from 6) and dual D700 GPUs (up from the D500). At present, there’s still no onboard USB-C and no Thunderbolt 3, which means it still won’t be able to run the LG UltraFine 5K display.

Apple also stated that new, pro-level iMacs are due later this year.

Apple has stated in past interviews with senior vice presidents Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi that “The current Mac Pro … was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it” and engineering, wherein the company has apparently “designed ourselves...

I’ve been testing Yunmai’s $66.99 YUNMAI “intelligent body composition scale” for about a week and find that it’s iPhone integration is helpful and it’s very accurate in tracking your weight. However, like every other “smart scale” I’ve tried, it doesn’t accurately measure body fat. More on that in a second.

The YUNMAI keeps track of body statistics through a free iOS app that can be downloaded to an iPhone (alas, there’s no iPad support yet). According to the folks at Yunmai, it records body statistics through bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), a method of estimating body composition. BIA measures weight, fat, body mass index (BIA), muscle, visceral fat, bone mass, water, basal metabolic rate, body age and protein

The YUNMAI sports four pressure sensors and four human body sensors for its readings. The iOS app keeps track of daily, weekly, monthly and yearly weight changes, allowing you to set weight goals and...

Apple patent filing hints at iPhones with flexible...

There have rumors that the “iPhone 8” will have a flexible display. I’m a little dubious, but the company has filed for a patent (number 9614168) for a “flexible display panel with bent substrate.”

In the patent filing, Apple says it may be desirable to bend an edge of a display to hide inactive display components along the edge of the display from view. However, the process of bending a display can create stresses within the structures of the display. For example, bent metal traces may become stressed. Stress-induced damage such as cracks may adversely affect display reliability. Apple says it would “be desirable to be able to provide improved displays with bent portions.”

Here’s Apple’s summary of the patent: “A display may have an array of organic light-emitting diodes that form an active area on a flexible substrate. Metal traces may extend between the active area and an inactive area of the flexible substrate. Display driver circuitry such as a display driver...
