Think Retro: Apple's Adjustable Keyboard harks...

You’ll recognize the picture above if you’re a Mac user of a certain vintage (does secret Vintage Mac User handshake), but anyone who came to Apple this century is probably looking at it with more questions than answers. Is it broken? What is with that space bar? And, possibly, oh my gosh, were Macs really ever that beige?

It’s a keyboard of course; the Apple Adjustable Keyboard. And it doesn’t have to look quite so alarming. It’s hinged at the top so you can if you like have it completely straight:

…or pull it apart so it’s angled. Why? Ergonomics. Formal touch typists—by which I mean typists for whom typing is the major focus of their job, not typists who wear pinstripes and address people by their surnames—were taught that the correct way to type was to always have their fingers resting lightly on the “home keys,” keeping the hands still and stretching and curling the fingers to reach the other keys. That’s why to this day keyboards...

TMO Daily Observations: 2014-12-02

Remember the iPod? There's a antitrust class action lawsuit that does, and it's finally getting its day in court. Bryan Chaffin and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet to offer their take on the case, talk about a very cool levitating speaker, and they take a side trip into the audio world to talk about the Leslie Speaker.

RadioShack suffering widespread iPhone shortages

RadioShack outlets across the US are suffering from extremely low iPhone stock, despite the critical holiday shopping season, according to Seeking Alpha. Most models aren't on shelves, and in many cases stores lack any iPhones to speak of, forcing people to use a "Ship to Store" option that takes several days. RadioShack doesn't sell the iPhone on its website, which simply directs iPhone shoppers to physical outlets....

How Apple’s new patent could keep your phone’s...

We’ve all been there: Your iPhone slips from your grasp or jumps from your pocket, and instead of landing on its case-ensconced back, it hits the ground face first. The once pristine screen is now covered in hairline cracks.

You can pay Apple out of pocket to replace the glass or turn to a third-party repair shop for a cheaper fix. Corning’s forthcoming Gorilla Glass 4 is designed to prevent smartphone screens from shattering on impact, though it won’t offer perfect protection from damage. But Apple has its own screen protection strategy in mind, if a new patent granted Tuesday is any indication.

Apple versus Real DRM antitrust trial testimony...

The Apple versus Real anti-trust trial centering around Apple's use of FairPlay DRM to block other music stores has begun, as expected. Lawyers for the complainants continue to claim that changes in iTunes blocking other companies' music stores from functioning on the iPod allowed Apple to raise prices. Real's attorneys seek $350 million in damages in the long-postponed suit that dates back nearly a decade. The trial, expected to last three weeks, is being held in the Oakland, CA federal courts....

Apple itself violated this rule during its Apps for RED campaign, sending a push notification to iOS users from the App Store app to announce it.

Canaccord Raises AAPL Target on Demand for High-...

Demand for Apple's recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still high, Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley is raising his target price for the company's stock from US$120 up to $135. That demand is targeted mostly at the higher capacity 64GB and 128GB models, which he says offer higher profit margins.

The Mac Observer Spin: Consumers were clearly ready for bigger screen and higher capacity iPhones, and that demand doesn't seem to be letting up. It's looking like Apple will be able to sell iPhones as fast is it can make them through the holiday buying season.

Journalist-Tracking Uber Exec Gets Vague Hand Slap

Attention focused on Mohrer last month when a reporter accused him of using an internal tool called "God View" to look up her travel data as she made her way to a meeting with him.

Per MacRumors and Nowhereelse.fr, YouTube user Canoopsy has created a video showing how an iPad Air Plus with those dimensions would measure up to Apple’s other devices including the company’s current iPads, iPhones and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Some reports have noted that the larger iPad would carry a 12.9-inch display, however it’s also been suggested that Apple will opt for a 12.2-inch screen. A 12.2-inch iPad Air Plus is of course shown to be much bigger than Apple’s current line of iPhones and bigger than the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2, as it even approaches the display size of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

SwiftKey has integrated its technology into Hawking’s communication system to provide him with tailored predictions and autocorrections, citing that the scientist’s mistakes are much different than those of the average smartphone user. Hawking is an accurate and precise speller, whereas many users of the keyboard are sending fast, sloppy texts or tweets.

The Free Software Foundation launched an anti-DRM campaign in 2006 called "defective by design." Apple's iPod was immediately a focus. Free Software Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO—This morning, Apple will begin a duel over claims that it used copy-protection schemes known as "digital rights management," or DRM, to illegally manipulate the market for iPods. The lawsuit, filed nearly 10 years ago, puts some legal firepower behind activists' claims that the copy-protection DRM is "defective by design."

Lawyers representing a class of nearly eight million consumers will put their case to a jury of eight men and women in an Oakland federal courtroom. The plaintiffs say that Apple's "FairPlay" system "locked in" its customers,...

By contrast, Call of Duty: Heroes (free) for iPhone and iPad finds you tapping your way through menus, watching your automated soldiers fire assault rifles at large buildings until they blow up, and waiting for timers to tick down. Quite a difference, no? Veterans of a certain lightweight freemium strategy approach will recognize this as a modern-military themed take on Clash of Clans, and no doubt, Activision hopes that audience will move from one big brand to another.

Marvel app allows developers to turn sketches into...

This could turn into something nifty.

Per TechCrunch, UK startup Marvel, which created an app that lets you turn sketches into app “prototypes” — had just one and a half month’s runway left after burning through the majority of a £60,000 investment from Haatch, has raised a £525,000 seed round from Connect Ventures, app studio ustwo (makers of iOS game Monument Valley, amongst other endeavours), and various angel investors, including Roberto Bonanzinga, Andy McLoughlin, Richard Fearn, and Jeremy Yap.

To that end, Marvel co-founder Murat Mutlu has stated that the startup’s mission going forward is to “lower the barrier” to prototyping.

To achieve this, Marvel’s web, iOS and Android apps let you turn sketches, wireframes, and Photoshop...

Mac: G-Technology G-Drive USB

G-Technology continues to produce great hard drives with Mac-inspired designs, always sold at premiums due to their superior materials and reliability. Now there’s an option if you’re looking for an external hard drive that won’t break the bank: the company’s new G-Drive USB ($160-$400). Available in 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, and 6TB capacities, these new models provide a much more affordable alternative to the standard G-Drive by focusing solely on USB 3.0 and eliminating the more expensive and increasingly niche connectivity options such as Firewire 800, eSATA, and Thunderbolt.

The new Mac mini is quickly turning into a disaster

Tekrevue:

So, what does this mean? At best, it means only very modest improvements for some models, certainly less than most would expect from a system as old as the 2012 Mac mini. At worst, it means a dramatic decrease in performance, with some 2012 configurations absolutely destroying their 2014 counterparts in multi-core workflows.

The good, bad and downright ugly of the latest Mac mini. Not a machine I have a lot of faith in recommending.

The truth about sharks

The Independent:

Turn off the spine-tingling music and forget everything you thought you knew about this solitary, “mindless killing machine”. Sharks have individual personalities. They socialise, choose best friends and create social networks of unusual complexity. They can be trained by humans to complete simple tasks, much more quickly than rabbits or cats, for instance, and retain the knowledge for much longer.

Sharks also teach each other new tricks: how to find food, identify predators and charm mates. Like sea turtles, some travel huge distances to return to their own birthplace, again and again, to give birth themselves. Most don’t need to swim continuously to survive. And rather than being near-blind and reliant on smell, which is the general perception, they in fact have advanced sight. They feel pain. And the boldest sharks face a greater risk of dying before adulthood.

Why does any of this matter? Well, we’re killing about 100 million sharks every...

Review: Uniq Transforma for iPad Air 2

Uniq's Transforma ($45) is one of the few iPad Air 2 cases we've seen so far that is specifically designed for Apple's newest full-sized iPad — it won't work with the thicker first-generation iPad Air, which is a good thing from our perspective, as the case is noticeably thinner than earlier cases. The folio-style case features a magnetic folding lid that transforms into a stand for viewing the iPad Air 2 in a number of angles, including portrait mode, and the magnet also activates the iPad Air 2's sleep/wake function. As with many folio cases, the buttons are left exposed on Transforma, as is the iPad's speaker grille.{/exp:char_limit}

The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker: $179.99...

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen: the Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker. It's a speaker that's a globe and it levitates. Seriously. It levitates. It floats in mid-air while it plays music or acts as your speaker phone, or whatever. Magnets are frakking cool. Check out the video in the deal listing to see it in action. It connects to an audio source via Bluetooth, plus it levitates. Drop in Luke Skywalker with a helmet over this eyes, and you can have yourself a proper SciFi shindig. The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker ships in January for $199. Stack Social has it on preorder for $195-when your speaker levitates, you don't have to discount it much. But this week only it's $179.99. So check it out and start counting down the days until it ships.

Cyber Monday Brings Sweet Deals for Video Gamers


A batch of great online deals on Cyber Monday, on the heels of strong Black Friday sales at traditional brick-and-mortar stores, could make Microsoft's Xbox One video game system the big winner in the run-up to the holidays. The video game console headed into its second holiday season in second place to Sony's PlayStation 4, but Microsoft has introduced a number of bundles to draw in gamers. Both systems saw strong pre-holiday sales after their respective launches last year, but Microsoft could have an early edge this time around.

We've seen Magpul's Field Case ($17) a number of times before, and it's now been released for the iPhone 6. The American-made flexible thermoplastic case provides basic protection, as well as retaining the same look and feel as previous versions of the Field Case, last seen for iPhone 5/5s — refer to that review for further details. Field Case includes volume control and Sleep/Wake button coverage.

10-Year-Old iTunes DRM Lawsuit Heading To Trial

itwbennett writes Plaintiffs in the Apple iPod iTunes antitrust litigation complain that Apple married iTunes music with iPod players, and they want $350 million in damages. The lawsuit accuses Apple of violating U.S. and California antitrust law by restricting music purchased on iTunes from being played on devices other than iPods and by not allowing iPods to play music purchased on other digital music services. Late Apple founder Steve Jobs will reportedly appear via a videotaped statement during the trial, scheduled to begin Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

How speakers make sound

Animagraffs:

Speakers push and pull surrounding air molecules in waves that the human ear interprets as sound. You could even say that hearing is movement detection. So what makes a speaker travel back and forth at just the right rate and distance, and how does that make sound?

I thought I knew how speakers worked. After watching this cool web page, I realized I had no clue how speakers worked.

Apple’s Latest iPhone Headache: Crescentgate

Review: Speck StyleFolio for iPad Air 2

Speck's folio-style case for iPad, StyleFolio ($40), has returned for iPad Air 2. Reviewed for iPad Air last year, the updated StyleFolio actually fits both iPad Air models, as there are cutouts for both the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 — note the microphone holes in the center of the case. The camera hole has also been elongated to accommodate the microphone next to the iPad Air 2 camera. Other than that, the faux-leather case is very similar to the previous edition, with built-in stand functionality, a plastic clasp to keep the lid closed, and front-facing speaker vents.
