The LG UltraFine 5K Display will go on sale in the U...

The LG UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as the high-end external display to use with the new MacBook Pros, is “currently unavailable” for order at Apple’s online store. However, Jen Langione, a senior account exec at LG, tells Apple World Today, that it will go on sale in early December at Apple Stores in the United States.

It will cost $974 through the end of the year — and $1,299 afterwards. The LG UltraFine 5K Display — which is 18.3 inches high, 24.6 inches wide, 9.4 inches deep, and weighs 18.7 pounds — boasts a 27.inch, 5120-by-2880 resolution, 14.7 million pixels, P3 wide color gamut, and 500 cd/m² of brightness. 

A single Thunderbolt 3 cable (included) provides up to 85W of charging power to your MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports. And three downstream USB-C ports (5 Gbps) offer additional connectivity and power to compatible devices and accessories....

The iPhone 7/7 Plus are boosting iOS’s market share...

The latest smartphone OS sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows 5.2% percentage point U.S. market share increase for iOS during the third quarter of 2016 to 34.2%. Both iOS and Android made gains across most of the EU5 countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom). 

However, Android posted a 3.3 percentage point decline in the US from 66.7% to 63.4%, while iOS share fell in Germany from 17.5% to 15% and in Urban China from 18.7% to 14.2%.

“In the US, the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models made an immediate impact, becoming the best-selling smartphones in the month of September at 17.1%,” sats Lauren Guenveur, Consumer Insight Director for Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. “Strong sales of the iPhone 7 and the lower-priced iPhone 6s, the second best-selling device in the US in September, contributed to an overall growth of iOS to 34.2% in the third quarter of 2016.

SwitchEasy’s GLASS is especially designed for the...

SwitchEasy’s GLASS is a new protective case designed specifically for the jet black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. Many metal cases on the market require screws to be disassembled. However, GLASS’s patented lock-release mechanism lets you take the phone out of the case with the slide of the button.

With a 7H hardness rating, GLASS protects the iPhone 7/7 Plus from nicks and scratches. It has an optical transparency rating of 90%, so the good looks of the Apple smartphone are still visible when using the case.

SwitchEasy designed a 1mm gap between the phone and the back of the GLASS case, allowing less than 13% of iPhone’s surface to come in contact with the case. It has a rigid case structure, composed of aluminum and glass.

With GLASS, SwitchEasy has introduced Pass-Through Nubs, a new way to enable a wireless signal to pass through metal casing. GLASS is available...

Apple Pay on the web is the fifth most popular...

Just over a month after launching Apple Pay on the web, new data from SimilarTech — as noted by 9to5Mac — shows Apple has already made it into the top five payment technologies online. 

SimilarTech is a website profiler, lead generation, competitive analysis and business intelligence tool providing technology adoption and usage analytics for the Internet. By adding web payment support, Mac users will be able to pay online in Safari using a “Pay with Apple Pay” button, and authenticate their purchase using Touch ID on their phone or watch. 

Previously, Apple Pay could only be used via some iOS apps or in a few selected retail stores. Also, iOS 10 added the option to use Apple Pay within Safari. So, when you check out online with Apple Pay, you'll touch your finger on the home button to complete the transaction.

SimilarTech’s platform tracks over 30...

The new MacBook Pro’s sales are through the roof

The new MacBook Pro may be controversial (and that’s an understatement), but Slice Intelligence reports that in the first five days of availability online, the latest model generated over seven times the revenue that the 12-inch MacBook did during its April 2015 launch. 

The new model’s sales already equal 78% of all the revenue generated by the 12-inch MacBook since it became available, and has accumulated more revenue than any other laptop this year., according to the research group, which has a panel of over 4.4 million online shoppers.

The new MacBook Pro has already outsold combined sales of the Dell XPS 13 and 15, which have been on sale for more than 10 months. It has also sold almost four times as many units as Microsoft’s Surface Book.

Up to four million Australians will soon be able to use Apple Pay following a deal Cuscal has made with Apple, reports news.com.au. Cuscal is an independent provider of payment solutions including card and acquiring products, mobile payments, fraud prevention, EFT switching and direct entry.

While Australia’s biggest banks continue to fight it out with Apple in an Australian Competition and Consumer Commission inquiry, more than 30 credit unions and small banks today will announce that their customers will be able to use Apple Pay. Cuscal managing director Craig Kennedy, in announcing the deal, called on the big banks and Apple to resolve their dispute for the good of consumers.

In July, Australia’s three largest banks (including the top lender, National Australia Bank), lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments...

You can now snag a refurbished iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus model from Apple.

The company has begun offering the refurbished handsets via its online store. The units are available in a variety of colors and capacities. Prices for an entry-level 16GB iPhone 6s start at $449, while a 16GB iPhone 6s Plus can be purchased for $529.

Those prices are $100 to $120 less than brand new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices, which are priced at $549 and $649 for 32GB of storage space. All refurbished iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models are unlocked and SIM-free, meaning they are compatible with all U.S. carriers.

Apple hasn’t exactly seen eye-to-eye with president-elect Donald Trump, responding dismissively to Trump’s call for a boycott of Apple products, and witholding support from the GOP convention. But it seems they do agree on one topic: allowing companies to repatriate profits from overseas subsidiaries at a reduced rate of tax.

Apple Now Sells Refurbished iPhones

In the past, Apple has only sold refurbished Macs, iPads and various niche devices on its refurb store. Now the company is officially selling refurbished iPhones, offering the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in its refurb store. 9to5Mac reports: Apple has sort of sold refurbished iPhones before, but those sales were relegated to an eBay store front and never fully acknowledged by the company. This is the first time that the company has offered iPhones on its official refurb store online. Customers will find the iPhone 6s in 16 GB storage varieties for $449.00. The larger iPhone 6s Plus is being offered in two storage varieties: 16Gb and 64GB for $529 and $589, respectively. It seems that all colors are currently available, which includes Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold. In the end, users can expect to save up to 15% ($110) by going the refurbished route, and remember that these devices come with a full 1-year factory warranty, which makes refurb units a great idea for budget-...

Here's some good news for Apple's iBookstore: the ebook market will more than double by 2020, according to Strategy Analytics. Increasing e-reading device penetration, more readily available content, new business models, and adoption in China will see the market's revenue top $16 billion in the next eight years, the research group adds.

"A clear trend in recent years has been the shift of e-reading from desktop computers to mobile, in particular to reading on smartphones and tablets.  At the same time, more readers are choosing multi-purpose tablets over dedicated e-readers as their primary ebook reading device," says David MacQueen, executive director, Apps and Media, Strategy Analytics.  

All in all, the research group expects ebook reading penetration to increase from less than 10% of the total population in 2013 to close to 25% in 2020. China, the biggest smartphone market in the world, has just begun...

CRU-DataPort eRazer Ultra useful for erasing hard...

By Aaron Lee

If you need to completely erase data from a hard drive, you need to check out the Drive eRazer Ultra from CRU-DataPort. Let me rephrase that: it’s a great device if you regularly have to erase data. It’s overkill for those who only do this occasionally — say, such as when they’re selling a Mac.

The eraser Ultra is a US$249. standalone hardware device that erases all data from 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch IDE/PATA and SATA hard drives faster and more securely than software solutions. Deleting a file or reformatting a drive won't permanently remove important information including credit card numbers, corporate and medical records, financial data, passwords or photos. Critical data remains accessible unless a proper tool is used to erase the hard drive entirely -- and you'll want to erase all that data before...

Sony’s compact RX1R II is a whole lotta camera, but...

For most people, an iPhone is all the camera you’ll need—it’s in your pocket wherever you roam, ready to capture (or ruin, depending on who you talk to) the special moments of your life. And with the announcement of every new iPhone, its photographic credentials creep a little closer to rendering a lot of compact cameras obsolete.

However, not everyone is content with the photos their smartphone is capable of grabbing, with their wee-image sensors and software trickery. I’m one of them. As much as I rely on my iPhone SE for photos while I blunder through my daily life, I prefer to use Sony’s RX100 Mark III when I need to take my photos to a higher level—like when I’m doing product shots, a review, or I want to capture a spectacular view while I’m on the road. It offers me the opportunity to take more-detailed, life-like photos in a larger, more edit-friendly file...

You’ve long been able to pick up a refurbished Mac or iPad on Apple’s online store, but never an iPhone. That changes today.

Apple just added refurbished iPhones, which it has typically used as replacements for broken devices, to its online store, so you can pick up a relatively new unlocked phone for a lower price.

The 7 and 7 Plus are too new to be included in the refurb store, but you can pick up an iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for as low as $449—that’s for the 16GB 6s. The 16GB 6s Plus is $529, and the 64GB 6s Plus is $589. Apple doesn’t actually sell those models in its regular store anymore, since bumping up storage space to 32GB and 128GB with the launch of the iPhone 7.

Ireland Will Bring the Fight Over Apple Taxes To the...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Digital Trends: The tax debate between Apple, Ireland, and the European Union may escalate in the next few months. According to recent reports, the Irish Finance Minister, Michael Noonan, will bring the debate to the EU court, a move that could trigger a years-long court battle. The battle stems from a European Commission finding that Ireland had been giving Apple tax breaks, something that has attracted a number of multinational employers to Ireland. The EU, however, has ordered the practices to change. After a three-year probe into Ireland's relationship with Apple, the European Commission ordered Ireland to collect $14.5 billion in back taxes from the company. That is the largest state-aid payback demand in history. The decision has been the subject of criticism, particularly from this side of the Atlantic. The U.S. Treasury Department says the decision is a threat "to undermine foreign investment, the business climate in Europe, and the...

This week the Irish government will formally submit an appeal against the European Commission's ruling that it must collect 13 billion euros in unpaid back taxes from Apple.

“The government fundamentally disagrees with the European Commission's analysis and the decision left no choice but to take an appeal to the European Courts and this will be submitted tomorrow," Ireland's finance minister Michael Noonan told a European Parliament committee in Brussels today.

Ireland is set to defend its tax system, which has remained attractive to other major U.S. technology companies, causing related European and U.S. issues for Google, Facebook and others. While Apple's...

The Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount from Square Jellyfish

Photo ©2016, Steven Sande

For those times where you want Siri (or Waze, or Google Maps) to give you directions, there's no better iPhone accessory than a car vent mount. The Jelly-Grip Car Vent Mount from Square Jellyfish (US$18.95, affiliate link) is a small vent mount that expands to hold even the iPhone 7 Plus, and it's perfect for those times when you want to use your iPhone in a rental car...or in your own car.

Design

The Jelly-Grip works with any car air vent with straight louvers. There's a small flat metal hook that can be extended by turning a knob, then retracted until it locks onto one of the louvers using the same knob. This ensures that the Jelly-Grip and your phone are going to stay in place, even when driving over bumpy dirt roads.

Connected to the mount by a ball-and-socket joint is a pair of spring mount "claws" that grip...

Huawei positioning to overtake Apple for the number...

China-based Huawei is now in a position to wrestle Apple for the number two spot for smartphone sales in EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) next year, according to the Canalys research group. In the third quarter, it grew its smart phone shipments by 70% annually. 

This marks the first time Huawei has shipped over 10 millionunits in EMEA in a single quarter, according to Canalys. It accounted for 14% of smartphone shipments in the region, behind Apple’s 15% and Samsung at 37%. Huawei has already shipped just over 26 million smart phones in EMEA this year, exceeding its total from full-year 2015, with the lucrative holiday season still to come.

Huawei remains a key player in developing markets in the Middle East and Africa, where its low-end devices are helping to increase smart phone penetration, according to Canalys. But its recent momentum is driven by Europe, where it grew 33% sequentially from Q2 2016 to...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,488,488) for “augmented reality maps.” If the technology ever sees the light of day (and I’d bet that it will) look for augmented reality (AR) features in the Maps app on the iPhone.

According to the patent, a user points a “handheld communication device” (which I’ll simply refer to as the iPhone from now on) to capture and display a real-time video stream. The iPhone detects geographic position, camera direction, and tilt of the image capture device. The user sends a search request to a server for nearby points of interest. 

The iPhone receives search results based on the search request, geographic position, camera direction, and tilt of the handheld communication device. The Apple smartphone visually augments the captured video stream with data related to each point of interest. The user then selects a point of interest to visit. The iPhone visually augments the captured video stream with a directional map...

Facebook users will be able to record smartphone videos that ape the style of famous artworks with a new feature unveiled Tuesday. Using a technique called style transfer, the feature takes live video and turns it into something that resembles the work of Van Gogh, Picasso and other artists.

That effect is probably familiar to people who have used the app Prisma, which uses similar techniques to change the look of photos. Prisma’s app can’t perform live filtering, and some filters require a connection to the internet. Facebook’s system can work offline and render live.

Those sources say that the Cupertino, California-based company is optimistic about the sales in the fourth quarter. The sources are reportedly seeing an increased shipment proportion of Apple's new MacBook Pro, and they expect Apple and the related revenues and profits to all enjoy growth in 2017.

In addition to the new Touch Bar-equipped 2016 MacBook Pros being among the most popular notebooks Apple has ever announced, the company has sold out of refurbished last-generation 15-inch MacBook Pros from its online store as the company introduces new models expected to ship to customers in the coming weeks.

A number of Reddit users noticed that several models of the refurbished last-generation notebook models had been available at discounted prices. That supply is apparently running low as customers snag up remaining stock.

You can still head to Best Buy to snag a unit for $1,509, which saves you $490 off the $1,999 price tag. This unit features the 2.5GHz quad-core model with 512GB flash storage for $2094, $405 off the old $2499 retail price.

If you thought the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was slick, Apple may be going the opposite route and creating a Jet White version for the handset.

The sixth color option is apparently in the works, though it comes from supply chain sources that “may be unreliable.”

Mac Otakara has accurately leaked information about Apple’s upcoming designs in the past, including the new Jet Black color and no 3.5mm headphone jack on iPhone 7. It was also correct about several other iPhone 7 details, including its naming, flush Home button, longer earpiece cutout, and lack of Smart Connector.

Still, there’s room for doubt and error as well. As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

LEGO Movie Videogame is fun if a little too familiar

By Aaron Lee

Feral Interactive's LEGO Movie Videogame — an adaptation of the hit film, The LEGO Movie — is fun if too familiar and too faithful to the movie.

Here’s how the game is described: “The LEGO Movie Videogame tells the story of Emmet, a seemingly average construction worker recruited by a group of insanely imaginative ‘Master Builders’ to bring down the over-controlling Lord Business, who insists everyone follow building instructions. Players can take on Emmet and over 90 other LEGO characters, harnessing the wonderfully creative powers of the Master Builders including Wyldstyle, Batman, Gandalf and the irrepressibly cheerful Unikitty."

If that sounds like a summary of the movie, you're right. In fact, the game uses clips from the film. That's part of the problem: the game reenacts the film's plot from beginning to end and feels like a retread rather than an extension of the movie. Despite this, the LEGO characters and their...

By default, your current location is displayed when you open the Maps app. You can zoom in and out of your location by scrolling with the Digital Crown, or pan around the area using your finger When you’re using the smartwatch for directions, it will make a ticking sound and use the Taptic engine to remind you when turn-based actions are necessary to continue navigation on the current route.

Facebook has agreed to pause its collection of WhatsApp user data in the UK as a result of a probe by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
