Tim Cook announces $1 billion investment in “...

Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage at an Apple event in September 2015. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple plans to create a $1 billion fund to invest in "advanced manufacturing" jobs in the United States. CEO Tim Cook made the announcement last night in a CNBC interview with Mad Money host Jim Cramer, and he says that Apple plans to announce its first investment later this month. Cook wants the new fund to create a "ripple effect" in the job market—he says that the manufacturing jobs created directly by the fund will also create service jobs needed to support them.

"Advanced manufacturing" is a bit vague, but generally speaking it's an umbrella term that encompasses creating technologically advanced products or improving the...

It’s not just the iPad; tablet shipments declined 8....

iPad sales continued to shrink in Apple's fiscal 2017 second quarter that ended April 1, 2017 (approximately 8.9 million tablets compared to 10 million in fiscal quarter 2016), but it’s not just Apple that’s seeing tablet sales decline. And there's a glimmer of good news for the iPad Pro.

The worldwide tablet market once again contracted in the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17) with total shipments of 36.2 million, a year-over-year decline of 8.5%, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. The first quarter contraction marks the tenth straight quarter that tablets have experienced a decline over the same quarter a year earlier, with the previous five quarters recording double-digit drops.

The tablet market is comprised of two different product categories, which are...

WaterField Designs has debuted the Bolt Crossbody, a slim-profile vertical laptop bag designed for commuters, professionals and adventure seekers. Available in three sizes to fit MacBooks, iPads and other devices, each Bolt includes a built-in, padded laptop-tablet sleeve, an Apple Pencil slot and several pockets.

For frequently-used items, a body-side pocket closes with a self-locking zipper for added security. The Crossbody's gold, water-resistant lining boosts visibility of bag contents. An adjustable...

FBI unable to access half of mobile devices, says...

FBI director James Comey yesterday told a Senate oversight committee that the FBI has been unable to access almost half of the mobile devices it tried to examine in the first half of the fiscal year, reports TechCrunch.

Comey said the FBI had been unable to access the contents of more than 3,000 mobile devices in the first half of the fiscal year, using what he described as “appropriate and available technical tools, even though there was the legal authority to do so.” He said that represented “nearly half” of all the mobile devices it had attempted to access in that time frame.

Comey made the statement in apparent support of the latest attempt at forcing phone manufacturers to provide backdoor access to the authorities …...

Apple patent involves the combination of dialogue,...

Apple wants to make it easier for content producers to combine dialogue, music and special effects and, especially, improve the intelligibility of dialog on TV sets. The company has been granted a patent (number 20170126343) for “audio stem delivery and control.”

It involves a system and method for playing back content that includes a video stream and a final audio mix that represents sounds for the video stream. An interface receives the video stream and the final audio mix. The final audio mix includes a dialogue stem and a music and effects stem that together represent an entirety of sounds for the video stream. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that sound program content, including movies and television shows, are often composed of several distinct audio components, including dialogue of characters/actors, music, and sound effects. Each of these component parts called stems may include multiple spatial channels and are mixed together prior to delivery to a...

Apple: Two million U.S. jobs. And counting.

Apple’s job creation web site:

The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states. Last year, we spent over $50 billion with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers and manufacturers. Since we launched the App Store in 2008, U.S. developers have earned over $16 billion in App Store sales worldwide. And we’re just getting started.

The site breaks the job numbers up as follows:

  • 80,000 Apple employees
  • 450,000 Jobs through our U.S.-based suppliers
  • 1,530,000 U.S. jobs attributable to the App Store ecosystem

The site also breaks the numbers down, state by state.

Apple to launch an ‘advanced manufacturing fund’ for...

During a Wednesday evening interview with CNBC's Jim Cramer, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company has created a $1 billion manufacturing fund to help stimulate job growth in the U.S. 

He offered no details about the fund, but noted that the "advanced manufacturing fund" will come from the company's U.S. investment pool. He pointed out that Apple has to borrow money to fund domestic operations since most of the company's $256 billion cash is overseas. 

Also, the tech giant has launched a new Apple's new Job Creation webpage that highlights the company’s efforts to the U.S. workplace. It says: “The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states.

Apple loves the little red dot

Straits Times, about the recently unveiled signage above the soon-to-open Singapore Apple Store:

The barricades in front of the upcoming Apple Store at Orchard Road’s Knightsbridge mall came down on Wednesday night (May 3).

But the store has not been unveiled. Instead, three icons – Apple, Love, Red Dot – adorn the tall store’s tall glass doors. It means Apple loves the little red dot, or Apple loves Singapore. There is also the wording Apple Orchard Road – the official name of the Apple retail store – below the icons.

Check out the pictures. I find the signage charming, some insightful localized marketing on Apple’s part.

Updated drone footage shows landscaping, solar panel...

The Apple Park campus edges ever closer to completion and a new drone video courtesy of Duncan Sinfield shows progress as landscaping and other touches are applied…

The overall footage still resembles a construction scene and there’s definitely more dirt than greenery at this point. Factor in a fair amount of machinery and it’s not quite completely arboreal, but it’s getting there.

Additional progress has also been made on the spaceship design with the solar panel roof, as well as Steve Jobs Theater and more. Windows are being installed along the outside of the building, while work continues on parking and other areas.

Apple originally announced that its new headquarters would be named Apple Park back in February, while the company also stated that the 1,000-seat auditorium would be named Steve Jobs Theater. While employees were expected to begin moving in during the month of April, it’s currently hard to tell if employees have moved in or are...

This is the same AmpliFi HD Mesh Router setup that our very own Dennis Sellers said was "another excellent candidate for an Apple router replacement." But it has one special difference -- it's black instead of the usual white case. 

Using advanced 802.11ac Wi-Fi, multiple self-configuring radios, and advanced antenna technology along with small plug-in mesh mesh points, you can see just how fast your connection is on the base station's display. An iOS app makes it fast (less than 60 seconds!) to...

Apple announced today plans to create a $1 billion fund to promote creation of advanced manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Cook told CNBC in an interview that Apple will announce the first investment later in May.

Because if we can create many manufacturing jobs around, those manufacturing jobs create more jobs around them because you have a service industry that builds up around them," the CEO said. Apple has already created two million jobs in the United States, and Cook showed no signs of shrinking the tech giant's reach. "A lot of people ask me, 'Do you think it's a company's job to create jobs?' and my response is [that] a company should have values because a company is a collection of people. And people should have values, so by extension, a company should. And one of the things you do is give back," Cook said. "So how do you give back?

Qualcomm Is Seeking US Import Ban For iPhones

Qualcomm is seeking to block the sale of iPhones in the U.S. after Apple decided to stop paying them billions of dollars in licensing fees for smartphone chips. Bloomberg reports: Qualcomm is preparing to ask the International Trade Commission to stop the iPhone, which is built in Asia, from entering the country, threatening to block Apple's iconic product from the American market in advance of its anticipated new model this fall, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. The ITC is a quasi-judicial agency in Washington that has the power to block the import of goods into the U.S. and processes cases more quickly than federal district courts -- the venue in which the companies are accusing each other of lying, making threats and trying to create an illegal monopoly. The escalating legal dispute revolves around patents Qualcomm holds that let it to charge a percentage of the price of every modern high-speed data-capable smartphone,...

I see no chance of this happening, but Qualcomm, hacked off over Apple’s decision to stop paying it billions of dollars in licensing fees for smartphone chips, will ask a U.S. trade agency to ban the imports of iPhones, according to Bloomberg, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the company’s strategy.

The world’s dominant supplier of baseband processors is purportedly preparing to ask the International Trade Commission to stop the iPhone, which is built in Asia, from entering the country. This threatens “to block Apple’s iconic product from the American market in advance of its anticipated new model this fall,” the article adds.

Apple has filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, the world’s dominant supplier of baseband...

ecobee3 lite smart thermostat: HomeKit-compatible,...

As part of our continuing coverage of the so-called "Internet of Things" and Apple HomeKit, Apple World Today recently had the opportunity to do a hands-on review of the ecobee3 lite smart thermostat ($169, affiliate link). This thermostat is a lower-cost alternative to the new ecobee4 smart thermostat with Alexa that was just announced today, and for those who don't want a device "listening" to them all the time, it's perfect.

Design

Small & Smart

The old thermostat is at top, while the ecobee3 lite is shown below. There is a LOT more intelligence built into the ecobee3 lite.

The first thing that hit me about the ecobee3 lite was just how small it was. It's just 4.3 inches (109mm) on a side, and the optional room sensors are even smaller -- just 1.7 inches (44mm) on a side. 

The display is one of the clearest LCD touchscreens I've seen outside...

Have iPhone 8 rumors stopped you from buying a new...

Apple announced yesterday that it sold 50.7 millions iPhones during the most recent quarter which disappointed Wall Street because it was a slight year-over-year drop instead of growth. China performance and a “pause” on iPhone sales are partly “due to the earlier and much more frequent reports about future iPhones” according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Supply chain rumors about the so-called iPhone 8 have been surfacing for over a year now — months before the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus debuted — but have they been a factor for you not buying a new iPhone recently?

Beware of the Google Doc phishing attack

There are two reasons why this thing is so tricky. For one, it looks legit: An invitation to view a Google Document appears to come from an existing contact. But when a person clicks on the link, the attack immediately replicates itself—meaning, it has the potential to spam all of that person’s contacts with the same message. The second reason it’s so tricky is that it’s unclear what the attack is attempting to do. Phishing is often a way for bad actors to gain unauthorized access to a person’s email or other private accounts, but it’s not yet clear what’s motivating this attack.

I received this about 30 minutes ago. I didn’t open it.

Uber fights for self-driving car future

The ride-services company is contesting Waymo’s accusation that former Waymo engineer and current Uber executive Anthony Levandowski took technical secrets from Waymo and used them to help Uber’s self-driving car development.

If it were proven that Levandowski and Uber conspired in taking the information, that could have dire consequences for Uber, say legal and ride-hailing industry experts. Uber’s $68 billion valuation is propped up in part by investors’ belief it will be a dominant player in the emerging business of self-driving cars.

The man at the heart of this dispute, Anthony Levandowski, was given $250 million worth of Uber stock the day after he left Google’s self-driving program. While suspicious, that in itself doesn’t mean Uber is guilty of anything. Google also says that Levandowski stole 14,000 confidential documents before leaving the company. That one could hurt.

iPhone 8 rumors: Announced in June or delayed '...

We’d forgive the iPhone 7 for feeling a little under-appreciated, since it seems like all anyone can talk about these days is the next iPhone. After all, 2017 marks the iPhone’s 10th birthday, so Apple is reportedly gearing up to make its anniversary edition extra special.

We’ll keep track of the latest rumors and how plausible they are, and we’ll put them in one spot (this one!) so you can pop on over whenever you want to read the latest.

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or the iPhone 7s or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like the next phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don’t expect the headphone jack to return.

The Northern Hemisphere is warming up as summer approaches, and Amazon and Anker have a deal today to gear up for blasting tunes in the backyard. Right now, Anker’s ultra-popular SoundCore Bluetooth speaker is on sale for $28.79 at Amazon when you apply coupon code ANKSPK77 at checkout. That price is within spitting distance of last fall’s all-time low of $27, and in general a very good price for this budget speaker.

The SoundCore features two 3-watt speakers and a built-in microphone for hands-free calling, and supports both Bluetooth 4.0 and an auxiliary line-in connection. It has a reception range of 66 feet, and a 24-hour/500 song playtime on a single charge from the 4400mAh battery. It’s also fairly light and compact, weighing 0.78 pounds and measuring 6.5 x 1.5 x 2.1 inches.

Odds appear good that Apple will be joining Amazon and Google in the smart speaker competition with a Siri-powered device it plans to introduce at WWDC next month. The new home-AI product reportedly will have excellent acoustics with one woofer and seven tweeters, and the processing power of an iPhone 6. Its price tag likely will be higher than Amazon's Echo, which sells for $179. The speaker may have a camera, and it likely will control other devices -- locks, lights, appliances, curtains and such -- by voice commands issued through Siri.

Apple could cut the capacity of DRAM in its upcoming anniversary iPhones with the rising prices of storage and memory components hitting its profit margins.

Those prices, in turn, could impact the memory capacity of the next iPhone. Trendforce, which tracks SSD and DRAM pricing, predicted the iPhone 8 will be capped at 3GB of DRAM.

The Sellers Research Group (that's me) says there’s 0% chance this will happen. WWDC will focus on the latest versions of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS and preview new Macs (as well as new iPad Pros, if they're not released before then). I predict the next the next gen iPhone will be unveiled at a special event in September and go on sale in October or November.
