Limelens: Unique accessory lenses for iPhone and iPad

Limelens "The Captain" (left) and "The Thinker" (right) lenses. Photo ©2016 Steven Sande

Over the years I've probably reviewed at least 30 different accessory lenses for the iPhone and a handful for the iPad. Generally, the accessory manufacturers have some way of aligning the lens with the camera lens on the iOS device, generally using either some sort of clip or special case. Today I'm looking at the Limelens Lens Set (US$49.99 sale price) from Capetown, South Africa-based Limelens that's a bit different in that it works with just about every iPhone or iPad made.

Design

The design of the Limelens accessory kit is pretty smart. You look at a chart and find your device to see which of three small plastic stick-on clips to attach to your iPhone or iPad. For example, an iPhone 5s uses a "B" clip while an iPad mini 2...

Apple paid Japanese suppliers more than $30 billion...

Apple says it paid Japanese suppliers more than $30 billion in 2015, “highlighting its economic contributions to the country in an effort to drum up support in tough times,” according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Some 865 Japanese companies furnished Apple with parts, materials and services during the year, the company's Japanese unit reported. Apple Japan currently employs 2,900 people, and claims to have created or helped create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

Approximately 532,000 developers in Japan worked on software for Apple hardware last year, with over 80% handling applications for iPhones and iPads, notes Nikkei Asian Review. These developers received $9.6 billion for their efforts in 2015.

NextWork: Apple could sell six million Apple Watch...

Apple may sell as many as six million Apple Watch 2 unit’s within its first few weeks of release, if a new NextWorth survey — as noted by Computerworld. Of course, Apple hasn’t even announced an Apple Watch 2 yet, but I’m predicting (hoping?) that we’ll see it along with an “iPhone 7” announcement sometime between Sept. 9 and Sept. 12.

The Apple Watch 2 (pictured here in fanciful mock-ups only) is predicted to sell more devices in the first 6 months than the original device has sold since it's launch,” a NextWorth rep told Computerworld. The findings are based on a NextWorth survey across 540 current smartwatch or fitness tracker owners. The survey found that:

  • Fifty percent of current Apple Watch owners say they’ll upgrade;
  • Twenty-two percent of non-smartwatch...

Review: Could the Syllable D900s be your first...

As time has gone on and increased reports of Apple’s next iPhone lacking a headphone jack have persisted, I’ve begun to delve deeper into the future of what consumer audio playback on iOS could be. Though headphones have found their way into nearly all levels of the consumer market in the past few years, I wanted to imagine what this headphone jack-less future could look like. I decided to start with the affordable, and what I would consider entry-level, Syllable D900s true wireless earbuds.

Instagram Stories is Facebook's most obvious...

Facebook has been after Snapchat and its huge userbase of teens for years, but nothing can slow the growth of the super-popular ephemeral messaging app. As the old adage goes, if you can’t beat ’em or buy ’em, take their best features and put them in your own product. This time, Facebook is blatantly copying Snapchat Stories and adding an identical feature to Instagram that starts rolling out to iOS and Android on August 2. It’s called Instagram Stories. Yep.

Like Snapchat Stories, Instagram Stories allows you to shoot and share photos and videos in a story that vanishes after 24 hours. You can up your creativity game by adding text, drawings, or emojis. The new feature is in a separate tab from your main feed, which you can continue to share images to as normal. Instagram will put updated stories from people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed so you won’t miss a new post. Perhaps Stories is...

Aussie cyclist wants to raise awareness of the...

Gareth Clear of Bondi, Australia shows the burn caused by an iPhone battery explosion. Photo from Sydney Morning Herald. 

The lithium-ion batteries used in almost all of our portable electronics are wonderful. They pack a lot of power into a small volume and can hold a charge when not being used. But as 36-year-old Australian mountain biker Gareth Clear found out, a broken battery can rupture and cause serious burns.

Clear was going on a ride and fell off of his bike when his foot slipped off the pedal as he was about to start moving. The fall damaged his iPhone, and then things went downhill from there. Said Clear, "I just saw smoke coming out of my back pocket... and then all of a sudden I felt this surging pain. I just remember looking at my leg and I had this black discharge all down my leg and...

Harley Quinn’s back story

This weekend, the movie Suicide Squad goes into wide release. Early buzz is, the movie is terrific. I can’t wait to see it.

The New York Times, on one of the main characters, Harley Quinn:

How did Harley become one of the most popular female characters in the DC Universe? In part, by cleaning up her act, or what passes for clean in her world. In several incarnations — most notably, her foray into video games — Harley has been a true supervillain, maiming and killing with unbridled glee. Now she’s more of an antihero, as in “Suicide Squad,” where she and a team of bad guys take on even worse guys in “Dirty Dozen”-style missions.

If you are a fan of the character, the movie, or the genre, this article is worth the read, chock-full of Harley Quinn background.

The Radar that brought the water pistol emoji to iOS...

Yesterday, Apple announced the addition of more gender diverse emoji in iOS 10. One emoji in particular, the handgun, got a lot of press attention when it was replaced by a water pistol.

Back in June, this radar (Apple’s internal bug-tracking system) was filed:

The current “pistol” emoji is a realistically rendered lethal weapon. As the spec doesn’t require it to be this way, Apple would be doing a service to society by changing this image to a plastic toy gun, such as a bright pink or green water squirter.

Solid suggestion, glad for the change.

No need for a Hackintosh, here’s how to breathe new...

Andrew Leavitt, writing on Medium:

You need only spend $171 for your anemic 27” iMac to run macOS Sierra, boot in seconds and open applications in a blink. Or you can buy a used one and upgrade it for just $500 starting from scratch. You really only require the latest models if you are working frequently with 4K video.

A machine that was originally built in 2009 can easily perform past another 5–10 years with a few straightforward upgrades. CraigsList has these computers lightly used for as little as $325 if you are patient. For another $171 in parts you can rock a machine almost matching today’s specs. And if you are presently struggling with an older iMac the decision is even easier (c’mon, it’s less than $200 and just an hour of tinkering). It’s fun and you might even learn something. Keep in mind that a new 27 iMac has a base price of $1800 (that’s with a 5K screen but no SSD and only 8GB of RAM). Boom, you just saved $1300.

Goodbye, Hello: Firefox casts off its built-in video...

Firefox’s built-in video chat component, Firefox Hello, appears to be destined for the scrap heap. Developers of the popular browser plan to remove Hello from the browser as early as Firefox 49, which is scheduled for release in mid-September.

Mozilla hasn’t made an official announcement about the change but developers are discussing the feature removal on a Firefox bug tracking thread, as first noticed by web developer Sören Hentzschel (German language link).

The removal of Hello will first show up in early test builds of Firefox Aurora for Android 50 and Nightly builds of version 51, according to the thread on bugzilla. Then beta builds of Firefox 49 will lose it. That plan appears to be already in progress. At this writing, the latest Firefox Nightly build did not have Hello built-in;...

How to use Digital Touch and handwriting in iMessage...

The Messages app has undergone a lot of changes in iOS 10. Much of the evolution is hidden behind two icons, just to the left of the iMessage text field (just to the right of the camera icon).

There’s a lot to play with here. Just be aware that some of the actions will send without a specific confirmation. So if you are going to experiment, you might want to warn the person on the receiving end. For example, if you tap the Digital Touch icon (two fingers on a heart), then scribble out a sketch or two finger tap, the scribble or kiss will be sent immediately, without any staging. This is not a complaint, just an observation.

All that said, the linked post from Rene Ritchie talks you through some of these features. I love this path for Messages, looking forward to seeing more of this.

The world’s largest SSD is now shipping for $10,000

The Verge:

That’s where the Samsung PM1633a SSD comes in, clocking in at a massive 15.56 terabytes (or 15,360,000,000,000 bytes) of storage. Such power comes at a price, however, with preorders for the 15.56 terabyte behemoth coming in at around $10,000. The 15.56 TB size is not only the largest SSD ever made, but the largest single hard drive ever, finally breaking the 10 TB barrier that spinning disk drives seem to be capped at.

The drive’s small size and huge storage capacity means that you’d be able to outfit a standard 42U server storage rack with 1,008 PM1633a for a cool 15482.88 TB (over 15 petabytes) of storage, to presumably store a spare copy of the known universe. (Assuming you can afford the $10,080,000 price tag for such a setup.)

Patent report: multimedia control center, 3D mapping...

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights: 

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,405,438) for a “multimedia control center.” Since the patent’s origins go back to 2005, it may simply involve the interface for iTunes; however, it could also involve Front Row.

 

Front Row was Apple’s Mac media center app for navigating and viewing video, photos, podcasts and music. It was abandoned in Mac OS X 10.7. But why? The Mac still plays host to the majority of our photos, music and home video. I’d love to see it, or a replacement, return.

Techniques and systems for centralized access to multimedia content stored on or available to a computing device are disclosed in the patent. The centralized access can be provided by a...

Apple had previously said that the app had set a new record for launch week downloads, but had not revealed the number – though one analyst estimated that the game could be worth as much as $3B to Apple over a 1-2 year timeframe. Interestingly, that success doesn’t appear to be at the expense of other games, as overall revenues across all games saw dropped only briefly.

Coloud headphones: No. 8 vs. No. 16

If you want a quality pair of headphones but aren’t willing to shell out mad cash for sound quality that is only noticeably better for studio engineers . . . yeah, I said what everyone is thinking …. then Coloud’s No. 8 and No. 16 headphones could be a great option for you.

Both pair of headphones sport a user friendly, built-in mic and remote. I did find it useful to read the instructions on how to use the button remote to get the most benefit from it. Below you will find a screen grab from Coloud’s website showing how to get to most out of this feature.

Another great feature both headphones share is the unique tangle-free system (pictured below). The flat cable, paired with the ZoundLasso, create an easy-to-store, tangle-free convenience. However, I feel this is one of those unnecessary features that is just there for bragging rights when, in reality, no one really uses it. Or maybe that’s just me.

Former Apple PR exec Natalie Kerris leaving new gig...

Over a year ago, longtime Apple senior public relations executive Natalie Kerris left the company. Kerris worked at Apple for 14 years and was responsible for the company’s PR during several crucial eras, including the launch of the iPhone. While Kerris didn’t initially specify what she would do after Apple, it was announced in February of this year that she was joining Twitter to lead its communications department. Now, BuzzFeed News reports that Kerris is leaving Twitter after less than 6 months.

New Apple ad touts iPad Pro as a computer replacement

I love it! A new Apple ad released today shows how the iPad Pro can be used to do many of the same things as a "real computer," which is my personal belief and the reason I use the big tablet as my "laptop" of choice: 

The ad, titled "What's a computer?", shows the iPad Pro being used with hands and fingers, Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard with a variety of productivity apps from Microsoft Word to what appears to be a note-taking app. Ending with the tag line "Imagine what your computer could do if your computer was an iPad Pro," the 30-second video shows just how many of the usual "computer" functions can be performed with ease on the powerful tablet. 

Members of a pair of Apple user groups -- Washington DC's Apple Pi and Denver's Macintech -- already know how I feel about the iPad Pro as my laptop replacement through a presentation I've made to them. It's nice to see that Apple agrees that the iPad Pro IS a computer.

Apple Replaces The Pistol Emoji With A Water Gun

Apple has a announced a number of new emoji changes on Monday, but the most controversial new change is that the pistol emoji will be replaced with a green water gun emoji in the company's upcoming iOS 10 operating system: The water gun swap is not Apple's first foray into cartoon gun control. Earlier this year the governing body in charge of emojis nixed a proposed rifle emoji. It was one of a number of possible new additions, but Unicode Consortium members Apple and Microsoft argued against the Olympics-inspired gun, according to Buzzfeed. Last year, an organization called New Yorkers Against Gun Violence started a campaign to get Apple to replace its version of the pistol emoji. It launched a site, disarmtheiphone.com, and sent an open letter to remove the firearm emoji "as a symbolic gesture to limit gun accessibility." As it stands, Microsoft is the only major software company to use a toy gun emoji instead of a pistol emoji in Windows -- Google, Samsung, Facebook and Twitter...

Apple makes a really good ad for Microsoft’s Surface...

Apple has a new 30-second ad out for the iPad Pro. The tablet, which it explicitly and repeatedly calls a "computer," has "a keyboard that can just get out of the way" and "a screen you can touch and even write on." Apple stops just short of calling the iPad "a tablet that can replace your laptop," but if you lift the voiceover verbatim (the iPad Pro is mentioned by name in the text but not in the voiceover) and play it over footage of a Surface Pro 4, you have a pretty good ad for a Microsoft product.

Stretching the traditional definition of "computer" has always been part of the pitch for the iPad Pro. Apple CEO Tim Cook calls the iPad Pro "...

Uber Sees the Cartography on the Wall


With an eye on its future, Uber last week announced it was increasing its investment in mapping. "The ongoing need for maps tailored to the Uber experience is why we're doubling down on our investment in mapping," said Brian McClendon, Uber's vice president of advanced technologies. McClendon didn't reveal how much Uber will invest in its mapping initiative, but news reports have pegged the figure at $500 million. Uber began putting mapping cars on the road last year, and this summer it expanded the program to Mexico.
