Bose's latest earbuds are designed to help you tune in to the specific sounds you want to hear from the world around you. Hearphones are a sort of blend of noise-cancelling earbuds and hearing aids.
There are several presets in the app, with names like "focused conversation," "gym," "airplane" and "television." You can opt to crank up the volume on all sound or turn it down. You can block out noise or amplify it from certain directions. For instance, you might use it to help you better hear a specific person in a crowded place.

Patent report: Apple watchbands with haptic feedback...

Future Apple Watches may be (surprise!) even thinner. Apple has filed for a patent (20160371942) for a “band attachment mechanism with haptic feedback” that would transfer the smartwatch's haptic feedback mechanism from the device’s body to its wrist strap.

It’s for a system that includes a band, an attachment mechanism attached to the band, and one or more haptic devices included in the attachment mechanism. The attachment mechanism can attach the band to an electronic device. Additionally or alternatively, the attachment mechanism can attach the band to a wearer. The haptic device or devices are in communication with a processing device. At least one of the one or more haptic devices produces a haptic response based on an activation signal received from the processing device.

Apple has also filed for a patent (20160372960) for a “wireless charging station.” The invention is for a wireless charging system that includes a transmitter...

Apple Delays App Store Security Deadline For...

Reader Trailrunner7 writes: Apple has pushed back a deadline for developers to support a key transport security technology in apps submitted to the company's app stores. Officials said at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year that developers would have to support Apple Transport Security by the end of 2016. But on Thursday, the company announced that it has decided to extend the deadline indefinitely. ATS is Apple's collection of transport security standards designed to provide attack resistance for data that's sent between iOS and macOS apps and backend servers. It requires apps to support a number of modern transport security technologies, including TLS 1.2, AES-128 or stronger, and certificates must be signed using SHA-2. ATS also requires the use of forward secrecy, a key-exchange method that protects encrypted sessions even if the server certificate is compromised at some point in the future.

Brisk iPhone 7 sales expected to bring Apple best...

Santa apparently left Apple something nice under the tree this year. Brean Capital analyst Ananda Baruah thinks that Apple could end up the first fiscal quarter of 2017 (ending December 31, 2016) with earnings of greater than $76 billion. That figure would be better than the record set just last year. Of course, Santa may also be leaving a lump of coal for later in the year...

The good quarter expectations are based on increased purchases of the iPhone 7 Plus versus the iPhone 7 compared to the iPhone 6s, better than expected Mac sales, and the release of the Apple Watch 2 in September. That lump of coal? Brean Capital thinks that the growth will come at the expense of the second fiscal quarter of 2017, due to weakness in the Chinese market. 

Looking later in 2017, the company sees less demand for the new iPhone range expected in September. However, alleged Apple manufacturing documents that were leaked on Tuesday say that Apple will bring two upgraded iPhone 7 models...

”If we like Pixel so much, why ask people to buy Raspberry Pi hardware in order to run it?” Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton said in a blog post. “There is a massive installed base of PC and Mac hardware out there, which can run x86 Debian just fine.”

From a report on BetaNews: If you own a Raspberry Pi, you're probably familiar with PIXEL. The desktop environment is included in the Raspbian OS. The Raspberry Pi Foundation describes PIXEL as the "GNU/Linux we would want to use" and understandably so. It offers a smart, clean interface, a decent selection of software, the Chromium web browser with plug-ins, and more -- and from today it's available for PC and Mac. The version of Debian+PIXEL for x86 platforms is described as "experimental" but having taken it for a spin, it seems pretty stable to me. To run PIXEL on your PC or Mac, download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB memory stick, and boot from it. The desktop environment will load ready for use.

Even if you have gripes about AT&T, this should come in handy.

The free service, dubbed “Call Protect”, arrives with a free companion mobile app for iOS and Android that lets users setup temporary call blocking and get notifications about what’s been auto-blocked. The feature blocks spam calls at the network level before they reach a customer’s phone.

Call Protect also warns users about calls that emanate from a “suspected spam source”, giving them the option to accept or refuse the call. AT&T customers who are eligible for the service have to opt-...

You can now snag a refurbished first-gen Apple Watch at a pretty decent savings.

Apple has just posted its cheapest model, a refurbished Apple Watch Series 1 in a 38mm rose gold aluminum case, is only $229. Others, like stainless steel versions of the Apple Watch Series 2, are available for $509, or about 15 percent off. This move follows Apple’s recent decision to start selling refurbished iPhone models on its online store.

The discounts generally range between 14 to 16 percent off throughout the entire range of models.

Luxury goods buyers unfortunately won’t find the multi-thousand dollar Apple Watch Edition up for discount. The company notably left that eye-popping price tier, which originally included a 18-karat gold case and a five-...

It’s time for Apple to simplify its product line-up...

When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, he drastically simplified the product line-up. It’s time for the company to do the same again.

Upon Job’s return, Apple was selling a dozen versions of the Mac. His strategy was to produce only four products: one desktop and one portable device aimed at both consumers and professionals. 

That precise strategy won’t work today because Apple has more product categories, but the principal — a streamlined product line with more focus on quality and innovation — is still relevant. Here’s what I propose:

The Mac. The Mac line-up will follow Jobs’ vision. There will be one desktop for professionals (the Mac Pro) and one for consumers (the iMac). Under this scenario, the Mac mini will disappear. Of course, Apple could ditch the Mac Pro AND Mac mini (which I think will, unfortunately, happen) and offer an “iMac Pro” (state-of-the-art specs and more expandability than current models) and an “iMac.”

Uber relents, suspends self-driving car tests in San...

Uber has halted its self-driving car trials in San Francisco and agreed to work with state regulators on obtaining proper permits for 16 test cars. The move amounts to a climbdown by Uber, which had last week argued it didn’t need to obtain the permits.

That sparked a demand from the state that the cars be pulled off the roads immediately and a threat of legal action if they were not.

Uber had argued its cars didn’t require autonomous car permits because they didn’t meet the law’s definition of being autonomous. It said the cars require a driver in the front seat at all times, and so are not autonomous but more akin to Tesla cars with advanced auto-pilot software.

The Epson WorkForce ET-3660 EcoTank wireless all-in-one comes loaded and ready with up to two years of ink in the box. Or so says Epson. However, its predecessor, the ET-4550, did exactly that. In fact, in over a year, I’ve never replaced an ice cartridge.

That’s an incredible amount of ink — enough to print up to 11,000 black/8500 color pages, and equivalent to about 50 ink cartridge sets. The printer is designed for homes, home offices and small offices that print 300 to 400 pages per month.

My family goes through a LOT of ink each year as my wife and daughter print photos, recipes, coupons, etc. I need a printer that doesn’t threaten to break my bank account in ink cartridge purchases.

When replacement ink is needed, the cost for the WorkForce ET-3660 EcoTan will reportedly be as low as $12.99 per bottle, or $52...

Nokia on Wednesday filed lawsuits against Apple in Germany and in the U.S., alleging that the smartphone giant has infringed 32 of its patents.

Nokia’s five lawsuits follow an Apple lawsuit filed in California Tuesday. The U.S. company accused Nokia of working with patent assertion firms Acacia Research and Conversant Intellectual Property Management to “extract and extort exorbitant revenues unfairly and anticompetitively” from Apple and other smartphone makers. Nokia was not named as one of eight defendants in the Apple lawsuit.

From a report on MarketWatch: Nokia said Apple agreed to license a few of Nokia Technologies' patents in 2011, but has declined offers by Nokia since then to license other patents whose inventions have been used in Apple mobile devices, including the iPhone and iPad, and the Mac. The lawsuits, filed in a Munich, Germany, regional court and a district court in Texas, cover technologies such as display, user interface, software, antenna, chipsets and video coding. Nokia said it's in the process of filing further actions in other jurisdictions as well.

Let someone else besides Jony Ive have a go at...

A widely quoted Bloomberg report, quoting unnamed “people familiar with Apple’s inner workings,” says the “Mac team has lost clout with the famed industrial design group led by Jony Ive and the company's software team.” I don’t know if this is true or not. For all I know, Apple’s design guru may spend 25 hours a day thinking of ways to make better Macs.

However, if Bloomberg is correct, why not give someone else free reign to do something revolutionary with the Mac? What about Richard Howarth, Apple’svice president of Industrial Design?

He joined Apple in 1996 and has been involved in the design of nearly every Apple product since the original iMac. Howarth — who has a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Ravensbourne — led the design of each generation of iPhone and, most recently, the Apple Watch. 

As head of the Industrial Design group, he leads...

Simple automated Christmas lighting with BlissLights...

I usually put up my Christmas lights around Thanksgiving, and in the past that has meant putting LED light nets on some shrubs, running a string of lights along the gutter line of the house, and then changing out some security bulbs in the front yard with red and green lights. This year, my travels kept me from doing that so I had to figure out a way to get lighting done in minutes rather than hours. Fortunately, I was able to make the house look festive very quickly with BlissLights laser projectors ($139.00), HomeKit, and Siri.

How do BlissLights work? They are small laser projectors that use holographic laser technology to project thousands of tiny bright dots on a house or other "target". There are actually two different types -- BlissLights Motion and BlissLights Color. With the former, some of the light dots move and flicker, while with the latter the projector also uses LED lights to provide a background...

Nokia sues Apple, claiming patent infringement

Another day, another lawsuit. Nokia is suing Apple in Germany and the U.S. for (what else?) patent infringement.

"Since agreeing (to) a license covering some patents from the Nokia Technologies portfolio in 2011, Apple has declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple's products," Nokia says.

"Through our sustained investment in research and development, Nokia has created or contributed to many of the fundamental technologies used in today's mobile devices, including Apple products,” Ilkka Rahnasto, head of Patent Business at Nokia says. “After several years of negotiations trying to reach agreement to cover Apple's use of these patents, we are now taking action to defend our rights."

The Wi-Fi Bluetooth Sound Bar comes with a 3.5 mm mini cable for connecting to additional sound sources like computers or MP3 players. You can even enhance the audio of existing TVs or DVD players by connecting the included RCA cables.

The front panel contains system controls, including volume, input, mute and standby, but users can also control functions using the included battery powered remote (AAA included), which can also control tuning and bass, among others.

Powered via the included AC plug, Wi-Fi Bluetooth Sound Bar can also charge an iPod,...

Britain prepares tighter laws on drones after air...

In April, a British Airways jet was hit by a suspected drone as it landed at London’s Heathrow airport, while in August a passenger plane narrowly avoided being hit by a drone as it prepared to land in Cornwall.

There are a lot of very responsible drone owners, but like many things in life, there are a few that are so irresponsible, it gives everyone a bad name. Flying a drone anywhere near an airport or over a major fire when helicopters are trying to fight the fire is just plain stupid.

Facebook’s Live Audio sound promising for...

One of my favorite things to do with an iPhone is to broadcast from a remote location when the situation warrants. Just this past week our local county seat had an extended power outage lasting most of the day, and I was able to show live what the town looked like with all businesses and traffic lights dark. It’s not only enjoyable, but can perform a public service to others.

There are many times, though, when I would prefer to broadcast audio only. I often have situations where I am teaching a class or giving a talk. Others are interested in hearing, but there is no applicable video to send or that would be of interest. I’ve often searched for an app that would permit me to broadcast audio only and let me basically be a “radio” station where others can listen. My search has been in vain — but now that is about to change.

Yesterday Facebook announced a companion service to their Live...

Super Mario Run sets new sales records

Super Mario Run is already half way to projected first month download and revenue totals, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data. The game surpassed 25 million worldwide downloads in its four-day opening weekend of Dec. 15-18, while earning more than $21 million in global gross revenue during this same period. 

Nintendo’s title reached the 25 million installs milestone faster than any previous mobile game, a feat that we’ve visualized in the following chart. Pokémon GO, which previously held the record for fastest mobile game to 25 million downloads, took 11 days from its July 6, 2016 launch to reach that point—seven days longer than Super Mario Run. As of this writing, the iOS-only game remains No. 1 for iPhone downloads in 75 of the 80 countries where it’s ranking, and No. 1 for revenue in 23.

Super Mario Run breaks records, gets 40 million...

(credit: Kyle Orland)

Super Mario Run's $10 asking price and the Internet connectivity requirement may have earned it some poor reviews in the iTunes Store, but they haven't kept the game from being successful. According to a Japanese press release with quotes from both Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Apple's Phil Schiller, Nintendo says that the game has been downloaded more than 40 million times in its first four days. The app ranks number one in the "Top Free" charts in 140 countries and is in the top 10 in the "Top Grossing" category in 100 countries.

In Mario Run's case, a download isn't quite the same as a purchase, since the app is free to download but requires a...

Apple updates its AirPort Extreme software

Apple has released new versions of its router software: 7.6.8 for the 802.11n AirPort Extreme, and 7.7.8 for the 802.11ac AirPort Extreme. According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes an issue where the routers would not respond to the AirPort Utility when "Back to My Mac" is enabled. There are also security fixes.

You can install the upgrades via the AirPort Utility. If the routers are not visible as a result of "Back to my Mac" being enabled, disable the feature and reboot the routers. 

Apple is apparently abandoning the AirPort Express, the AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. However, the company ranks highest in overall satisfaction among wireless router manufacturers in a new study by J.P. Power.

Opinion: Will Apple switch from Lightning to USB-C...

When Apple launched the iPhone 5 with a new-fangled Lightning port – instead of the 30-pin dock connector that had been a standard feature on every previous generation of iPhone, as well as on iPods since 2003 – there was a great deal of outrage.

‘What about all the docks and speaker systems we own that have 30-pin connectors?’ was the question many asked. The decision was described as arrogant and unreasonable. Apple was accused of profiteering, by forcing everyone to buy new cables, docks and speakers.

Apple responded in three ways. It pointed to the undeniable technical superiority of the new port. It explained the difficulty of making ever slimmer devices with a port designed for much thicker ones. And it assured everyone that this would be the last change for a long time – that the Lightning port would be around for many years to come …

Like Djay 2 for iPhone, Djay Pro features a two-deck turntable interface, Spotify integration, and native support for external MIDI controllers. Djay Pro also relies on the iPhone 7’s haptic feedback for a more realistic sensation when scratching and scrubbing the waveforms, and 3D Touch is also employed so that DJs can set a cue point in the song without taking their finger off the waveform.

The Mac is in the back seat, especially the Mac Pro

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Interviews with people familiar with Apple’s inner workings reveal that the Mac is getting far less attention than it once did. They say the Mac team has lost clout with the famed industrial design group led by Jony Ive and the company’s software team. They also describe a lack of clear direction from senior management, departures of key people working on Mac hardware and technical challenges that have delayed the roll-out of new computers.

Combine this with Tim Cook’s response to employees in an internal memo:

“Some folks in the media have raised the question about whether we’re committed to desktops,” Cook wrote. “If there’s any doubt about that with our teams, let me be very clear: we have great...
