‘Inferior to a Laptop in Almost Every Way, Unless...

Joshua Topolsky pretty much trashed the iPad Pro in a series of tweets last night:

Couple of tweets about the new iPad and iOS 11. It is inferior to
a laptop in almost every way, unless you like to draw.

If you think you can replace you laptop with this setup: you
cannot. Imagine a computer, but everything works worse than
you expect. […]

But this doesn’t COME CLOSE to replacing your laptop, even for
simple things you do, like email. AND one other thing. Apple’s
keyboard cover is a fucking atrocity. A terrible piece of
hardware. Awkward to use, poor as a cover. Okay in a pinch if you
need something LIKE a keyboard.

I agree with almost every single word in Topolsky’s thread — but I also think he’s completely wrong.

Here’s what I mean. Me, personally, I find a MacBook way better for almost every single thing I do that I consider work...

Why I’m still surprised the iPhone didn’t die

ZDNet:

What surprises me isn’t how popular the iPhone is now, but that it survived the first couple of years to become the influential cash-generating machine that it has become.

I’m just going to come out and say it — the original iPhone was junk. I know, that’s a scandalous thing to say, but to say otherwise is to do a disservice to the memories of the awesome handsets of the time. Call quality was terrible, it didn’t support multimedia messaging, and data speeds were slow even for 2007 because Apple chose not to support 3G.

I would usually say pieces like this are revisionism but the author, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, is someone whose writing I know and like and, upon reading it, you remember just how limited the original iPhone was. But his reasonings for why it eventually succeeded are

In a blog post, venture capitalist Gene Munster says iPhone growth will peak in fiscal year 2019, then slowly decline as “Apple Glasses” emerge. He thinks those glasses, an AR-focused wearable, will be released mid-fiscal year 2020. 

“We believe Apple see’s the AR future as a combination of the iPhone and some form of a wearable,” Munster writes. “With an average sale price of $1,300 we expect initial demand to be limited at just over 3m units compared to 242m iPhones that year.

He also forecasts that Apple’s AirPods will be "bigger than the Apple Watch" over the next decade as the product evolves from simple wireless headphones to a wearable, augmented audio device. 

“While both AirPods and Apple Watch should continue to grow, we see AirPods contributing about the same amount of revenue as Apple Watch by FY22. We expect the AirPods ASP to increase from $159...

WOW! Apple’s single sign-on feature for iOS, tvOS...

Wide Open West (WOW!) now supports Apple’s single sign-on feature for iPhones, iPads, and the Apple TV. It’s the ninth largest cable TV provider in the U.S. The company also offers landline telephone and broadband Internet services.

With single sign-on, users only have to sign in once on Apple TV to enjoy immediate access to their favorite video channels that are included as part of their pay-TV subscription. Once a user is signed into one network app, any other app on Apple TV from participating pay-TV providers will automatically log the user into all other supported apps requiring authentication. 

During the single sign-on process, customers can view a page of all the authenticated apps that a pay-TV provider offers to more easily discover, download and enjoy all of their favorite video channels. Any network-TV app can take advantage of this technology to enable single sign-on and simplify the process for their...

Ruling on Irish Apple data center delayed due to...

It was thought that a hearing regarding opposition to Apple's proposed Athenry, Ireland data center would conclude on June 23rd, but the decision is apparently on hold thanks to a "lack of judges" to hear the case. The news broke on the Galway Bay FM radio station when a six-person advocacy group from "Apple for Athenry" arrived to attend the hearing and found it was closed. 

The court hasn't rescheduled the hearing, but the radio station says it believes that a final ruling will be made by June 30. The hearing was requested when Allan Daly, an American-born environmental engineer, raised objections to the data center based on what he believes will be strains to the Irish electrical grid and a perception that Apple isn't going to deal with greenhouse gas emissions from the data center.

The data center had originally been approved by Irish...

Cyberattackers Kick Down a Few Parliament Email Doors


The United Kingdom's Parliament on Monday reported a cyberattack on its email system over the weekend, when hackers attempted to access user accounts without authorization. Due to the "robust measures" in place to protect the legislative body's accounts and networks, fewer than 1 percent of the 9,000 accounts on the network were compromised, officials said. Accounts that were compromised had weak passwords that did not conform to guidance on creating strong passwords from the Parliamentary Digital Service. Individuals with compromised accounts have been notified and investigators are determining if the victims lost any data.

You may have missed out on last night's live AWT TV, and that's a sad thing. However, we always point you in the right direction for watching the show after the fact, and that's the case today. Last night's show had a slightly more structured format than usual, as well as a different venue for Steve -- he was outside for the recording!

We started off with a discussion of four news items from the past week, then Marty took it from there with a detailed and fun look at using Messages. If you're not using Messages stickers and apps to take full advantage of the app, then you're really missing out. Even Steve -- who uses the app every day -- learned something he wasn't aware of.

Steve then discussed the 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, which he has benchmarked using Geekbench 4 as being about 10 percent faster than last year's model. The device is slender, fast...

Apple granted a patent for ‘glove touch detection’

Do you find it aggravating when, in cold weather, you have to remove your gloves to use the touch features of your iPhone or iPad? Apple wants to change that and has been granted a patent (number 9,609,417) for “glove touch detection.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that touch sensitive devices can be used in environments where an object touching a surface of the touch sensitive device can be separated from the surface by a barrier. For example, a user can be wearing a glove on one or both hands or can have a bandage on one or more fingers.

The barrier can create a separation between the object and sensors of a touch sensor panel and degrade the sensors' ability to identify the object as touching the surface of the touch sensitive device. This, of course, is a problem. (Interestingly, a laptop is show in the illustration of touch devices in the patent filing.)

Here’s Apple’s (somewhat tech-speak heavy) summary of the invention: “In some examples, in addition...

Dell, Fairphone, and HP are the only companies that make spare parts and repair manuals available to the public, while products from brands such as Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft are among the least easy to repair and upgrade, according to Greenpeace’s latest IT product guide

Greenpeace, in partnership with iFixit, assessed over 40 best-selling smartphones, tablets, and laptops launched between 2015 and 2017. Seventeen IT brands were represented in the study. The assessment is based on iFixit’s repairability score, which considers the time required to repair the product, the device’s upgradability and modularity, as well as the availability of spare parts and repair manuals.

“Of all the models assessed, we found a few best-in-class products, which demonstrate that designing for repairability is possible. On the other hand, a number of products from Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft are increasingly...

A few tastes:

Essentially, an API does all the hard work for the programmer. This is true here probably more so than in any other API. ARKit provides services for each of the problems listed above. In each case, the incredible work of interpreting the real world scene, all the artificial intelligence programming that has been done, all is hidden under the hood, and the programmer just needs to request a description of nearby surfaces. Placing the model into the scene will subject it to the automatically detected light sources and resize it as it is moved in relation to the viewer, or the user moves the viewing device around...

A cyberattack the world isn’t ready for

Nicole Perlroth, New York Times:

The strike on IDT, a conglomerate with headquarters in a nondescript gray building here with views of the Manhattan skyline 15 miles away, was similar to WannaCry in one way: Hackers locked up IDT data and demanded a ransom to unlock it.

The Wanna Cry attack made huge headlines. The IDT attack did not.

But the ransom demand was just a smoke screen for a far more invasive attack that stole employee credentials. With those credentials in hand, hackers could have run free through the company’s computer network, taking confidential information or destroying machines.

This is a huge issue. The premise is, there are many of these attacks and they are almost all undiscovered, allowing the attacker to build up a treasure trove of employee credentials. The attack was allegedly carried out using cyberweapons stolen from the NSA.

Scans for the two hacking tools used against IDT indicate that the company is not alone. In fact...

How to check your iPhone battery percentage in macOS...

Did you know you can check your iPhone battery from your Mac? Well, you can.  Here’s how:

Make sure your Mac and iPhone are both using the same iCloud account and have Bluetooth enabled.

Hold down the Option key and click the Wi-Fi icon in the Mac menu bar. After a second or so, your iPhone will show up in the Personal Hotspot section even if you’re not using it to set up a personal hotspot. If you’re not using it as a personal hotspot, that option will be in light grey; if you are using the iPhone for that purpose, Personal Hotspot will be in bold letters.

The battery icon and signal strength is display. However, if you mouse over your iPhone's line, a small menu will appear that shows the exact percentage of battery you have left.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

Is the physical location of data becoming irrelevant?

I've said this before and haven't changed my mind that I would never trust all my data to be stored in the cloud. The Gartner research group says that the physical location of data still matters, but will become increasingly irrelevant and will be replaced by a combination of legal location, political location and logical location in most organizations by 2020.

Historically, people equated physical proximity with physical control over data and security. Although everybody knows that locally stored data can be accessed remotely, the desire for physical control still exists, especially among regulatory bodies. Gartner advises organizations not to dismiss concerns about physical location, and instead balance the discussion with other types of risk. 

That may be. However, Yours Truly will always have several physical back-up copies of his important data, as well as a cloud back-up.

Apple has scooped up SenSoMotoric Instruments (SMI), a Germany-based company that makes eye tracking hardware and software. The deal was first reported by MacRumors and confirmed by Axios.

SMI provides eye tracking systems for scientific research, professional solutions and original equipment manufacturer applications. The eye trackers can be combined with motion tracking systems, EEG, and other biometric data. They can be integrated into virtual reality environments, head-mounted displays (such as the Oculus Rift), simulators, cars, or computers as a measurement or interaction modality.

The acquisition could help Apple with its efforts in augmented and virtual reality....

Recommendations in Setapp to be released June 27

Setapp, the first Mac app-subscription service is launching a personalized AI-based recommendation system dubbed App Advisor tomorrow (June 27). Every time a user launches the service, it will come up with app suggestions from the Setapp collection. 

According to Oleksandr Kosovan, founder and CEO of Setapp, the recommendation models rely mostly on:

  • Collaborative filtering, used to determine the users’ preferences from historical usage data. If two customers use largely the same set of applications, their tastes are likely to be similar. 
  • Content-based filtering, used to recommend the applications that are similar to those that a user used in the past. 

A single monthly subscription of $9.99 with a free trial month. With a referral program one can get up to six months of free subscription.

Apple puts autonomous tech in the Hertz driver’s seat

Apple is leasing some vehicles from Hertz Global to use for autonomous testing, according to Bloomberg. Documents on file with the California Department of Motor Vehicles indicate that Apple will use Lexus RX450h sport utility vehicles for the testing.

When Apple received its license to test three autonomous vehicles from the state’s DMV in April, the documents listed Donlen as the lessor and Apple as the lessee. A half-dozen vehicles have been testing Apple’s autonomous technology on public roads in and around the San Francisco Bay area for at least a year, a person familiar with Apple’s project told Bloomberg earlier this year.

The news breaks on the same day that an autonomous vehicle testing partnership between Avis and Google property Waymo was also unveiled.

During his appearance onstage at a Cisco event, Tim Cook commented on the safety of using Apple and Cisco products together rather than a competing device from Alphabet. He said the companies will “spend some energy on” achieving these discounts and customers choosing the more secure product partnership should “reap that benefit.”

The arrangement between Waymo and Avis will be based on vehicle storage and light service while Waymo will retain vehicle ownership. In contrast, Apple’s deal with Hertz will include leasing a small number of Lexus RX450H vehicles, the same model it has been using since the California Department of Motor Vehicles approved Apple to test self-driving technology.

The United States of Amazon


Amazon's significant expansion into yet another market -- this time, grocery stores -- dominated many of my conversations last week. Clearly, Amazon warned us. I've been here before -- you see, back in the 1990s, when Amazon was just books, I was running the company's e-commerce unit. I got into an argument with one of the analysts focused on Amazon, who believed the company wouldn't go beyond books. I argued that the model it was using could -- and would -- expand to other things, but even I wasn't thinking broadly enough.

Forget the (still unreleased iPhone 8). That’s yesterday’s news. We need rumors about 2018’s “iPhone 9.”

Oh wait, here’s one: LG Innotek is setting up flexible printed circuit board (PCB) production, with the goal of becoming a primary supplier for next year’s Apple smartphone, according to the Korea Economic Daily.

Quoting unnamed “industry sources,” LG Innotek has almost completed the development of flexible PCBs and is likely to break the ground for related facilities in the latter half of this year. If the rumor is true, does that mean more flexible iPhones?

Most likely. PCBs have the potential to replace multiple rigid boards and/or connectors.
