Google's ability to distribute new Android updates has always lagged far behind Apple's iOS, but the situation is even worse in China, where the "Lollipop" version 5.x, introduced in 2014 alongside iOS 8, has only reached about a fifth of all devices, two thirds the distribution it has achieved elsewhere.

Flux responds to iOS 9.3’s Night Shift feature, asks...

Apple earlier this week introduced the first beta of iOS 9.3 and included in it is a new feature called Night Shift. Night Shift uses your iOS device’s location and clock to automatically adjust the colors in your display, making them warmer and easier on the eyes at nighttime, which ideally would allow you to sleep better. When Apple announced this feature, people immediately noticed the similarity to the popular third-party app Flux, which was only briefly available for iOS last year before Apple shut it down. Now, the developers behind Flux have come out and offered a comment on Apple’s new Night Shift feature…

In a blog post, the Flux team...

Google's self-driving cars showed major safety improvements over the past year -- but there were dozens of incidents when test drivers had to intervene, the company said in a report recently filed with California regulators. There were 272 so-called immediate manual control disengagements due to a failure of the autonomous car technology, between September 2014 and November 2015, Google said in its report to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. However, the rate of that type of disengagement dropped significantly over the past year.

The new Square Reader goes for $49 with transaction fees set at 2.75% so you keep $97.25 out of every $100 sent through Square. Square’s app lets you create mobilized businesses on iPhones and iPads, and we’ve tested the new Apple Pay-ready reader to see just how easy it all is.

License to (not) drive

Steven Levy:

I press a button on the steering column, and a female voice accompanied by an icy synthesizer note — the kind of thing you hear when monorail doors are about to close — intones the word, “Autodrive.” Something catches in my throat; it may be the closest thing I’ll know to flying the Millennium Falcon when it thrusts into hyperspace. In truth, not much really changes. The Lexus rolls forward and rambles down a street in a neighborhood that is all streets and no buildings or people, a Potemkin village of roadways. There is an intersection ahead with a stop sign. The car stops. My foot has not touched the brake.

I am behind the wheel of a Google self-driving car.

There is no doubt autonomous cars are the future so these articles about the early days fascinate me. There are still a lot of issues, both inside the car and out, that need to be resolved before fantasy becomes reality though.

For kids of a certain age — say, 35 and up — it’s the stuff dreams are made of: more than 900 vintage pinball and arcade games, with almost no duplicates among them.

Although many of these machines once sucked quarters out of pockets at a dizzying pace — Dragon’s Lair alone likely drained more piggy banks of allowance money than anything else in 1983 — they’ll all be available to play for a single price this weekend at the Museum of Pinball in Banning.

How much fun would it be to spend a weekend in this place?

Public beta of iOS 9.3 now available

Earlier this week we mentioned some of the useful features that are being baked into the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, AKA iOS 9.3. Today Apple made iOS 9.3 available for public beta to those who are enrolled in the company's beta software program.

If you're not currently enrolled and would like to try out the features of iOS 9.3, you can sign up with your Apple ID. Note that like any pre-release software, installing iOS 9.3 can result in data loss on your device, so make sure that you're doing it only on a non-production machine that you wouldn't miss if something went awry... 

The installation process is quite easy and is done over-the-air, so if you have an unused iOS device that can run iOS 9.3 and you'd like a head start on finding bugs in the new OS, give it a try.

There's been a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth about the Sisyphean task of protecting privacy in the Digital Age, but that hasn't stopped innovators from searching for ways to preserve it. One of the latest ideas to emerge in the field is Privacy as a Service. As with many emerging technologies, the definition of "PaaS" -- which undoubtedly will be confused with Platform as a Service -- is in flux.The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency sees PaaS as a way to share data safely while preserving privacy.

Let the arguments begin.

A new bill proposed in New York could require that all phone manufacturers be required to implement a way for law enforcement agencies to access and decrypt user devices. This bill is somewhat similar to the Investigatory Powers Bill currently being debated in the UK, which Apple has voiced its opposition towards. Apple and Tim Cook have repeatedly stated that government agencies should not have any access to user devices or data, whether be through a built-in backdoor or other means.

The bill is currently making its way through the new York state assembly and specifically states that “any smartphone manufactured on or after January 1, 2016, and sold or leased in New York, shall be capable of...

MBLM: Apple Watch users view it as ‘non-essential,’...

MBLM, the “Brand Intimacy Agency” says its findings show that owners are cooling on the Apple Watch, viewing it as cool but non-essential, but are still optimistic about its future. 

“Overall, our panel members continue to like the watch. A few are happy with it; a few are indifferent; many have lost that loving feeling. Most view it as a watch that does some cool tricks,” says MBLM. “Expectations have become more realistic, and although some panel members are underwhelmed, few are completely disappointed.”

The watch appears to have an increasingly narrow cast for MBLM’s panel members. Most use it mainly for one specific function—notifications, the activity monitor, or answering texts and calls. The idea of wearing the watch some of the time (3–5 days per week) also seems to be growing in popularity. MBLM panel users are finding it agreeable as a part-time accessory. (By the way, I can...

External Link: Former NSA Boss Favors Encryption

End-to-end encryption has gained an unexpected ally: former National Security Agency head General Michael Hayden. In a speech, Hayden said that he disagrees with FBI Director James Comey, who has led the charge against encryption, adding “I actually think end-to-end encryption is good for America.” Hayden went on to say, “When was the last time you saw the success of legislation designed to prevent technological progress? It’s just not gonna happen.” Hayden’s support for encryption is an interesting twist that undermines the Obama administration’s argument, since Hayden isn’t exactly a champion of civil liberties: he once told reporters that the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not contain the phrase “probable cause” (it does).

According to The Intercept, things became heated between Apple CEO Tim Cook and Obama administration officials during a meeting over encryption. Cook said that the White House should come out in favor of no backdoors in encryption, and criticized the administration for a lack of leadership. However, the administration doesn’t seem to have been swayed by Cook’s argument, insisting on a “balance” between privacy and national security. The administration gave up on legislation that would have mandated backdoors back in September 2015, but the White House has continued pressuring tech companies to open up their encryption schemes to law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

Wallpaper, a website dedicated to “the stuff that refines you,” has named the Apple Watch Hermès as the best “life enhancer” of the year in its Design Awards 2016, calling it a “smartwatch pairing Apple’s pioneering innovation with Hermès’ uncompromising craftsmanship.”

Here’s what Wallpaper has to say about the smartwatch/band combo: “High style and tech smarts have never been more in sync than in this year’s surprise pairing: the Apple Watch Hermès. The initial Apple Watch launch, back in April, came close to breaking the internet (or at least the pavement outside Apple stores globally), and this latest amalgamation of craftsmanship and technology hit a luxury high when it was announced in September. So now, in addition to sleep tracking, step counting and waving for contactless payment, serious fashion cred is well within arm’s reach.”

Fassbender, Winslet grab Oscar nominations for...

Actress Kate Winslet and Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin picked up Golden Globe awards for their respective work in the movie Steve Jobs at the recent event, and that was widely seen as a prediction that the movie would be nominated in a number of categories for the upcoming Academy Awards presentation. The nominations are out, with Michael Fassbender picking up one for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Kate Winslet lined up for a second major win as Best Actress in a Supporting Role. 

Left out of the Oscar nods was Aaron Sorkin, probably because there is no category for "Best Fictional Screenplay Based Loosely on Real Events" in the Academy Awards. Likewise, Daniel Pemberton's score for the film was overlooked in the Oscar nominations, while it was in the running for the Golden Globes but lost out to Ennio Morricone's score for Hateful Eight.

The iOS app started the day by asking subscribers to sign up and join Apple Music (a force quit fixed for me but the problem persists) and iTunes on the Mac is also serving up error messages for a great number of users.

At the time of writing, Apple’s system status page hasn’t been updated to reflect any issues, but that usually happens a bit after the problem is recognized if at all. We’ll keep an eye on the status and update accordingly, but rest assured that if you’re a subscriber being asked to join again that it’s not just you and there’s a widespread hiccup in progress.

Incorporating a polymer switching material into lithium-ion batteries could prevent their overheating due to a process known as "thermal runaway," according to Stanford researchers. Lithium-ion batteries consist of an anode, a cathode, a separator and a flammable electrolyte. The separator melts when a large amount of heat is generated by overcharging or shorting, ultimately resulting in a thermal runaway. Pressures and temperatures can rise inside cells too fast to control using existing safety mechanisms.

The company posted NT$306.57 billion (US$9.15 billion) in net profit for 2015, a 16.2 percent annual increase. TSMC’s 2015 earnings per share was NT$11.82, compared with NT$10.18 the previous year, and its consolidated...

Patent application shows Apple Watch band that...

An Apple patent application published today reveals an idea for an interesting variation on the magnetically-closed Milanese Loop band that allows it to do much more than simply secure the Apple Watch on your wrist.

By using a careful arrangement of magnet orientations, the band can transform itself into a protective case when travelling, a stand on a bedside table or desk – or a Mac accessory …

In the standard band configuration, the band would...

Nvidia Blames Apple For Bug That Exposes Browsing In...

An anonymous reader points out this story at VentureBeat about a bug in Chrome's incognito mode that might be a cause for concern for some Apple users. From the story: "If you use Google Chrome's incognito mode to hide what you browse (ahem, porn), this might pique your interest. University of Toronto engineering student Evan Andersen discovered a bug that affects Nvidia graphics cards, exposing content that you thought would be for your eyes only. And because this only happens on Macs, Nvidia is pointing the finger at Apple."

Sharing and viewing Live Photos shot on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on the Mac has been tricky if not impossible until now. Previously the enhanced photos could only be viewed in Apple’s Photos app on the Mac, which limited sharing to iCloud Photo Sharing. Starting with the new OS X 10.11.4 beta released earlier this week, Live Photos can now be shared and viewed over iMessage using Messages on the Mac for the first time.

Before now Live Photos were diluted into still images, losing their audio and video. With the latest El Capitan beta, however, Live Photos can be sent from...

App Store games bring in $1B in revenue during...

December is always one of Apple’s biggest months of the year thanks to the influx of new devices people receive as gifts during the holiday season. The company often reports its highest device sales during this month, and as you can figure, the more people who are using iOS devices, the more people who are downloading apps from the App Store. App Store analytics company Sensor Tower has today shared its figures for the month of December 2015, and it was another record-setting month for Apple. Sensor Tower says that revenue for games in the App Store during December was nearly $1 billion.

According to the report, games in the App Store brought in nearly $1 billion in revenue during the holiday month of December. This is an 18 percent increase over the $...

A new bill proposed in New York could see that all phone manufacturers be required to implement a way for law enforcement agencies to access and decrypt user devices. This bill is somewhat similar to the Investigatory Powers Bill currently being debated in the UK, which Apple has voiced its opposition towards. Apple and Tim Cook have repeatedly stated that government agencies should not have any access to user devices or data, whether be through a built-in backdoor or other means.

The bill making its way through the New York state assembly specifically states that “any smartphone manufactured on or...

Report: Apple “stepping away” from iAd, giving...

(credit: Apple)

A report from BuzzFeed's John Paczkowski says that Apple is backing away from direct involvement in iAd, the mobile advertising platform it launched back in early 2010.

The company isn't killing the iAd platform, which serves relatively unobtrusive ads that don't force users to leave the app they're already in. Instead, Apple will reportedly disband its own internal sales team and require publishers to sell ads themselves. This is already an option for iAd users, as outlined in this developer document—you keep 100 percent of the revenue from ads you sell yourself, but if Apple sells the ads on...

Apple reportedly phasing out in-house iAd sales team...

Six years after launching its advertising platform, Apple is moving to phase out its in-house iAd sales team in favor of a new publisher-driven system, reports BuzzFeed News, quoting unnamed “multiple sources.”

iAd is a mobile advertising platform developed by Apple for iOS devices. It allows third-party developers to directly embed advertisements into their apps.

While iAd itself isn’t going away, Apple’s direct involvement in the selling and creation of iAd units is ending. “It’s just not something we’re good at,” one source told BuzzFeed News.

The company is reportedly is phasing out its iAd sales force entirely and updating the iAds platform so that publishers can sell through it directly. Publishers who do so will keep 100% of the revenue they generate.

Notable apps and app updates for Jan. 13, 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 for Mac OS X and iOS.

Mac OS X Apps/Updates

Report: Apple says it sucks at selling ads, will...

Apple’s rocky iAd advertising platform is about to see some major changes, says Buzzfeed’s John Paczkowski. According to the report, Apple plans to dismantle its iAd sales team and stop its role as a middleman between publishers and customers:

While iAd itself isn’t going anywhere, Apple’s direct involvement in the selling and creation of iAd units is ending. “It’s just not something we’re good at,” one source told BuzzFeed News. And so Apple is leaving the creation, selling, and management of iAds to the folks who do it best: the publishers.

Apple is phasing out its iAd sales force entirely and updating the iAds platform so that publishers can sell through it directly.

The big news, Buzzfeed notes, is publishers that play ball will take home 100% of the ad revenue generated rather than a ...

Apple Watch political oopsies: Jeb Bush’s ‘Batphone...

It’s no secret that former Florida governor Jeb Bush is a huge fan of his Apple Watch. Since the Apple Watch launched, the Republican presidential candidate has gone after the youth vote by showing off his Apple Watch and calling it a better option than Obamacare, despite labeling it unintuitive and power-hungry a few months later.

Jeb’s “iWatch,” as he often calls it, wasn’t dead earlier this week during an interview with the Des Moines Register’s editorial board, USA Today points out, as the presidential hopeful accidentally either placed or answered a phone call on it unknowingly. Jeb explained it away...

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...

Whatever it is, though, it's happening and you cannot stop it – not even with an application like this: but if PhotoWatermark can't prevent the copying of images, it can help photographers and artists considerably by adding identifying text to your image...

Sales of Macs look to be way up, iOS devices are selling much better in a key foreign market, and Apple's suppliers are flourishing -- all signs that point to better-than-expected quarter....
