Belkin releases USB-C Car Charger with USB-PD...

This could be interesting.

Accessory maker Belkin has launched what it claims to be the first USB-C car charger to support USB-PD (power delivery), dubbed the “USB-C Car Charger + Cable”. While there are already multiple USB-C car chargers on the market, generally priced around $10 to $15, that also support quick-charging features of advanced USB-C devices, Belkin’s device supports not only 5V (the traditional max voltage of USB), but 9V over USB-C thanks to its implementation of the new USB-PD spec.

This, in turn, makes it better suited for charging some notebooks and tablets.

Oddly enough, Belkin doesn’t claim an ability to charge a MacBook in its press release, though it does tout “faster or higher power outputs” for charging a Chromebook Pixel, Pixel C, or an iPad...

Slashdot Asks: Is the App Boom Over?

Quartz did a story in 2014 in which, citing comScore's data, it noted that most smartphones users download zero apps per month. Two years later, the data from Nomura reveals that the top 15 app publishers saw downloads drop an average of 20% in the United States. While there are exceptions -- Uber and Snapchat continue to attract new users worldwide -- it appears that developers are finding it increasingly difficult to get new people to download and try their apps. Recode reports: But now even the very biggest app publishers are seeing their growth slow down or stop altogether. Most people have all the apps they want and/or need. They're not looking for new ones.What's your take on this?

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off on Monday, and it all begins at 10am Pacific at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. While the bulk of the actual developer sessions will be happening at the nearby Moscone Center, Apple has moved the opening-day keynote to a larger venue to make room for more attendees.

Even given the iPhone announcements in the fall, WWDC is usually Apple's biggest event of the year, the one where we see the direction in which Apple's increasingly unified platform is moving for the next 12 months. We already know that we'll be getting our first looks at new versions of iOS, OS X,...

Apple SVP Phil Schiller: Huge iOS App Store changes...

Apple’s App Store problems are well-documented. It’s difficult to find apps, even when searching for them by name, and it’s tough for developers to stand out from the millions of other apps in the store. At next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple will officially announce its overhauled App Store.

Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, spilled the beans on those changes in a Wednesday interviews with The Verge and Daring Fireball. First, a new App Store subscription model will reward developers who can keep paying customers around for longer than a year. Apple will slice its cut of their subscriptions to 15 percent from the standard 30 percent after the first year. The company is planning to encourage all developers to explore the subscription model—and...

Podcast 511: WWDC predictions, Apple TV love, and...

We’re just days away from the WWDC 2016 keynote, and it’s time to talk (and talk, and talk) about what might be announced, what probably won’t be announced, and what we really want Apple to announce, however unlikely. Be sure to join us for the live blog Monday morning—the keynote starts at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.

Elsewhere, Glenn made a Mac 911 FAQ because it turns out about half the questions he gets are the same handful of questions. We’re both loving the Apple TV more than ever, as articulated by Jason Snell in a recent column. Instagram is finally using the real iOS Share sheet, so we also pause to praise how great the Share sheet is at linking up apps. Then speaking of awesome apps, Glenn has written two books about Slack, which is one of those apps it’s easy to love but so powerful that it’s hard to take full advantage of. Oh, and speaking of taking advantage, T-Mobile wants you to eat Domino’s every Tuesday forever—for free.

The New App Store: Subscription Pricing, Faster...

“We’re doing something a little different this year. We’ve got a bunch of App Store/developer-related announcements for WWDC next week, but frankly, we’ve got a busy enough keynote that we decided we’re not going to cover those in the keynote. And rather, just cover them in the afternoon and throughout the week. We’re talking to people today for news tomorrow about those things, in advance of WWDC, and then developers can come and be ready for sessions about these things, with knowledge about them before the conference. We haven’t done this before, but we figured, what the heck, let’s give it a try.”

So started my phone call with Phil Schiller yesterday.1 Doing something a little different, indeed.

All of the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models are expected to be equipped with Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, while USB-A, MagSafe 2, and Thunderbolt 2 ports found on existing models will allegedly be removed.

Apple To Offer iOS Developers 85-15 Revenue Split;...

Apple says it will now take a smaller cut of commission from app developers provided they have customers who stick with their subscription model for longer than a year. Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, told The Verge in an interview that the company will revise the 70-30 split for such developers to 85-15. In addition, the company will also begin showing search ads for apps in its iOS App Store search results. Also, the company says it is speeding up app review times "to the point where 50 percent of submitted apps are now reviewed in 24 hours, and 90 percent are reviewed within 48 hours." From the report: If the new subscription model becomes widely adopted, it will represent a fundamental shift in the economics of the App Store. Developers will be incentivized to sell their apps for a recurring fee instead of a one-time cost. It could change the way consumers pay for certain apps, but it also presents a massive opportunity for developers, many...

Enlarge / A late 2008 MacBook Pro with El Capitan, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD upgrade feels a whole lot more modern than it should. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

I took a vacation last month. I traveled some. I read a lot. And I refurbished an old late 2008 MacBook Pro, one of the original aluminum unibody models. I completely took it apart, dusted it out, put it back together, and stuck in a memory and SSD upgrade. This is the kind of thing I do to unwind.

There are lots of differences between this thing and a new MacBook of any stripe. They’re smaller and they’re thinner and they’re faster and they have better screens, better performance, better batteries. But once you’ve put in a few more modern parts and plunked a fresh install of El Capitan onto the SSD, it feels a whole lot like a modern...

Google releases Motion Stills for iOS, uses...

The animated gif is by no means dead.

It’s just become high res looping video clips.

On Tuesday, Google announced the release of Motion Stills, an iOS app from its Google Research division that takes stabilized GIFs and creates looping videos out of them that can be shared via messaging or social media.

The app cites that it’s able to achieve a 40x speedup by using techniques such as temporal subsampling, decoupling of motion parameters, and using Google Research’s custom linear solver, GLOP. This, in turn, adds additional speed and conserves storageby computing low-resolution warp textures to perform real-time GPU rendering, just like in a video game.

From here, Motion Stills separates the background from the rest of the scene...

External Link: Does Siri Embarrass You in Public?

Since Siri debuted on the iPhone 4S, voice assistants have become all the rage, with Amazon, Google, and Microsoft all following suit. Apple put Siri on the Apple Watch and the fourth-generation Apple TV, and rumors suggest that Siri may come to the Mac in the next version of OS X. A survey of 500 consumers by research firm Creative Strategies shows that most people have at least tried Siri, with only 2 percent of iPhone users having never used Apple’s digital assistant.

How heavily is Siri actually used, and in what contexts? According to the study, 70 percent of iPhone owners use Siri only infrequently, which is a little sad to hear, but the more interesting statistic to emerge is that many iPhone users are too embarrassed to talk to Siri in public, with a vanishingly small 3 percent of iPhone users saying they do so. This might account in part for why the living-room–based Amazon Echo is doing so well — 39 percent of smartphone consumers say they use voice assistants at...

The T-Mobile Tuesdays #getthanked app gets tanked,...

T-Mobile chief executive John Legere is known for his colorful language. But after the mobile carrier’s T-Mobile Tuesdays app failed to deliver the freebies Legere promised, customers probably dropped a few F-bombs of their own.

(Update: At 4:45 PM, T-Mobile sent a text saying that the T-Mobile Tuesdays app was working again. PCWorld has confirmed that it is.)

As of about 9:45 a.m. PT, the T-Mobile Tuesdays app failed to hand out coupon codes for the Domino’s pizza, Wendy’s Frosty, and Vudu video rental that Legere promised a day ago as part of T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 11 promotion. Some users, including PCWorld contributing writer Ed Oswald, reported that the app went right to a connection error page.

Asus' Zenbo made its debut at last month's Computex computer show. At the same time, Asus launched a program that provides devs with access to the Zenbo SDK. Zenbo will be priced at US$600, but Asus did not announce when it will be available to consumers.

Apple Music adds an NBC Sports Radio livestream...

One thing that's been missing from Apple Music is a 24/7 sports talk radio station for sports junkies. Well, sports fanatics, your prayers have been answered! Apple Music today added NBC Sports Radio, featuring live sports talk with pesonalities like Mike Florio, Rodney Harrison, Amani Toomer, and Chris Mannix. 

The new service isn't the only live news or talk station available -- those have been available from BBC World Service and NPR for a while. The new station is available to stream via the iOS Music App or in iTunes on a Mac or PC. 

NBC Sports Radio is available for all users without a subscription, as part of the iTunes Radio service that's part of Apple Music. We're expecting to hear more about other enhancements to Apple Music next week as part of the WWDC 2016 keynote on Monday, June 13.

Instagram recently added a long-awaited feature to its iOS app that will make life easier for budding and experienced users of the photo-sharing service. The latest version of the app, which rolled out on Monday, adds the ability to share from other apps to Instagram, as first spotted by iMore.

Previously, Instagram would only grab images from your device’s camera or the built-in Photos app. Now, however, you can create an image in your favorite third-party photo app, and then share it directly to Instagram.

Sharing to Instagram is live.

Rumor: Apple to incorporate dark mode into iOS 10

WWDC is just around the corner and with it, some fairly intense speculation as to iOS 10’s user interface has come about.

One rumored concept that’s gotten some attention is the idea of a potential dark mode to be released with the new operating system. As such, a set of concept images has been leaked, the concept showing a system-wide dark mode is depicted in the images, offering up an example of what darker backgrounds would look like in Messages, Mail, Contacts, News, and more.

It’s been speculated that the feature could be set to automatically activate when the sun sets, darkening the entire operating system as is currently done in the Maps app.

The site images a dark mode that would extend to built-in Apple apps and system menus, as well as third-party apps using a potential dark mode API.

Following an update on Monday, Instagram now allows users to share photos and videos directly to Instagram on iOS without having to first launch the app. Instagram version 8.2 includes an iOS extension that lets you share both photos and videos from Photos and other iOS apps directly to Instagram. The feature also lets you write a caption to accompany the photo or video, but filters and other editing features will still require launching the full app.

To enable the new extension, update to the latest version of Instagram, tap the share button and swipe to the far right of the colored app icons then tap ‘More’. Toggle Instagram on, arrange it on the list where you’d like it placed, then tap done. Now Instagram will appear in the share sheet where sharing photos is supported. This...

If you want to run a clone of Microsoft Windows to escape the drama of upgrading to Windows 10, try ReactOS -- but do not expect it to be a fully functional replacement. ReactOS is a free, open source operating system built on the design principles found in Windows NT. ReactOS is a Windows clone and not a Linux distro. However, the release last month of version 0.4.1 brings this unique open source project one step closer to its goal of providing users full compatibility with Windows software on a free OS made almost from scratch.

The GhostStand is a scarily good stand for an Apple...

If you have a 12-inch Apple MacBook, you might as well display it with style. One way to do so is with Twelve South’s GhostStand.

The $34.99 stand elevates the tiny laptop to a more comfortable viewing angle — around six inches off a desk. This makes it handy for pairing the MacBook with a keyboard and mouse if (unlike me) you use it as your main computer. 

My 12-inch MacBook sits on is GhostStand next to its big brother, a 27-inch iMac.

 

The folks at Twelve South say the GhostStand makes it appear your laptop is levitating. That’s a bit of hyperbole, but it does facilitate a “lighter than air” atmosphere. Plus, its two sets of soft silicon rails will keep your MacBook from sliding off. 

However, when you’re ready to go (and you didn’t buy Apple’s tiniest laptop to leave it at the home or office, did you?), just unplug your power cable and any USB-C cords,...

Not many people get a new computer every single year, but now that Apple has OS X on a yearly update cycle, our computers can feel refreshed and renewed while we bide our time waiting for new MacBook Pros or MacBook Airs.

New features add convenience and speed up tasks we do all the time, and developers can get new tools to delight us with their own apps too. This year’s WWDC keynote is bound to hold some surprises, and here’s what we could see in the next OS X—er, excuse me, MacOS. Or whatever it’s called.

Future Phones May Use Vacuum Tube Chips As Silicon...

An anonymous reader writes: A team of researchers want to replace transistors with vacuum tubes. Vacuum tubes are nothing new, however the ones in development at Caltech's Nanofabrication Group are a million times smaller than the ones in use 100 years ago. "Computer technologies seem to work in cycles," Alan Huang, a former electrical engineer for Bell Laboratories, told the New York Times. "Some of the same algorithms that were developed for the last generation can sometimes be used for the next generation." Dr. Axel Scherer, head of the Nanofabrication Group, said to the New York Times on Sunday, "Ten years ago, silicon transistors could meet all our demands. In the next decade, that will no longer be true." He argues silicon transistors can only take us so far. Vacuum tubes, for comparison, use tiny metal tubes that can control the flow of electricity. They're especially intriguing to researchers as they can provide a better solution to silicon transistors as they can consume...
