Will you wait until early 2019 for the new Mac Pro...

The rumors have started flowing following Apple’s rare pre-announcement of an all-new modular Mac Pro it has in the works. The latest today claims to offer some intel on how long the project has been in development at Apple, giving some insight into a likely late 2018/early 2019 launch and shipping timeframe for the new computer that we still don’t know a whole lot about.

Was Apple’s announcement enough to keep you satisfied and give you confidence that it’s worth holding out for the new machine? Or will you be switching to a new machine for your pro needs? Perhaps those new iMacs Apple plans to ship later this year?

iPad as a 'Mac buddy' could benefit Apple...

In writing for OS News Thom Holwerda says that, in addition to a new Mac Pro and an iMac Pro, Apple is said to be exploring additional Retina MacBook Pro models without the Touch Bar, and other pro-oriented features, such as hooking an iPad Pro up to a Mac to use it as a Cintiq-like device.

My take: I can’t imagine Apple removing the Touch Bar entirely from MacBook Pros — unless there’s been major outcry against this feature. On the other hand, positioning the iPad as a Touch Bar for desktop Macs, as well as a drawing tablet could help sales of both Apple computers and tablets in a double “halo effect.” (You can currently use your iPad for such a purpose with the Duet Display.)

Such a move would mean added functionality for the iPad. It would also add some serious touch screen features to the Mac without the desktops or laptops having built-in touch screens,...

Why Nvidia’s upcoming Pascal drivers matter: The...

I’m currently in the process of building a new Hackintosh rig for 2017, so imagine how surprised and happy I was to hear that Nvidia is working on beta drivers for its GPUs with the latest Pascal architecture. Up until today, I had just settled on being relegated to a Radeon RX 480, or a Maxwell-era Nvidia card.

Not having Pascal drivers for the Mac certainly didn’t diminish the Hackintosh community, but it was significantly limiting in both options and creativity.

With today’s announcement, the Hackintosh just got exponentially more appealing. Nvidia’s announcement is positive for a variety of reasons: there’s the prospect of using an eGPU setup with a MacBook Pro, along with future prospects of Nvidia cards powering future Mac Pro hardware.

But on the immediate horizon, the announcement is most promising for Hackintosh builders. With this in mind, I wanted to share the build...

‘So-Called’

From a New York Times report by Alan Wong:

President Xi Jinping of China is not expected to be strolling the
manicured fairways of the Trump International Golf Club on
Thursday, sizing up his approach shot.

Mr. Xi is known to be an avid soccer fan, bent on transforming
China into a great power in that egalitarian team sport, but the
Chinese Communist Party maintains an ideological contempt for golf
as a rich person’s game.

That view, among others, places him at odds with President Trump,
who owns more than a dozen golf courses and whose so-called Winter
White House, the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., charges
more than $200,000 for membership.

Describing Mar-a-Lago as “the so-called Winter White House” is pernicious at best, and I would argue it’s downright outrageous. No news organization, let alone one...

The latest specs for the upcoming Xbox update, codenamed "Project Scorpio," suggest that it could take gaming to new extremes. Microsoft officially unveiled Project Scorpio at last year's E3, but it has offered few details about what gamers can expect, until now. Project Scorpio reportedly is ahead of schedule, but it is still at least six months away from a consumer launch. More details likely will be announced at E3 this June. Project Scorpio will be the most powerful video game console to date, according to Microsoft.

Rumor: Modular Mac Pro may not ship until early 2019...

When Apple revealed on Tuesday that the current Mac Pro will not see a major update and instead an all-new modular Mac Pro is being developed, the company stopped short of saying just when that decision was made and how long ago the new project started.

Apple said the modular Mac Pro won’t be available in 2017, but didn’t explicitly promise the new machine would be ready next year. OSNews managing editor Thom Holwerda believes the project actually started “only a few weeks ago” and won’t be complete as soon as we may expect.

Dumb refrigerator, meet Smarter FridgeCam

I'm beginning to think that there are some real advantages to the "Internet of Things". Just last night I was getting ready to cook a pasta dish, took some garlic out of the crisper bin, and was disgusted to see that it was quite green and fuzzy. Spoilage is a bad thing, as is not knowing when you're running out of items in your refrigerator. A new smart device from Smarter called the FridgeCam (US$149, available for pre-order) wants to take your old fridge and turn it into much more than just a hiding place for fuzzy garlic.

Smarter FridgeCam and an unusually clean refrigerator...

Instead of spending a lot more money on a connected refrigerator like those made by most of the major appliance manufacturers now, the idea is that you can give your current fridge a dash of intelligence with the addition of FridgeCam. It attaches to the door of any refrigerator, letting you see inside the fridge from anywhere with an internet...

Apple Taken To Court For Refusing To Fix Devices

Australia's consumer watchdog has begun legal action against Apple over claims it refused to repair iPads and iPhones previously serviced by third parties. From a report on BBC: It alleges that Apple made "false, misleading, or deceptive representations" about consumers' rights under Australian law. The case follows complaints that users were "routinely refused" repairs after an error disabled their devices. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) began an investigation after users complained about Apple's so-called "error 53", which disabled some users' devices after they downloaded an update to their operating system.

Malwarebytes: New iOS ‘malvertising’ pushes ‘free’...

Malwarebytes Labs reports that it's discovered a new scareware campaign targeting iOS users. The campaign pushes a “free” VPN app called My Mobile Secure via rogue ads on popular Torrent sites. 

According to Malwarebytes Labs, the page plays an ear-piercing beeping sound and claims the device is infected with viruses. Tapping the Remove Virus button opens the Apple App Store to download the app … and that’s when things go downhill.

According to the developer profile the company is a market research panel designed to understand the trends and behaviors of people using the mobile Internet. Malwarebytes Labs says this should be a red flag when applied to a VPN product, whose goal is to precisely anonymize your online activity by encrypting your data from your ISP, government, bad guys, etc.

When it comes to malicious adverts there’s a preconceived notion that malvertising mostly affects the Windows platform, and the bad guys seem to be taking advantage of that...

Nvidia debuts Titan Xp GPU, announces beta Pascal...

Nvidia has announced its $1,200 Titan Xp GPU [graphics processing unit], as well as news that new beta Pascal drivers are coming next week for the Mac. The company says it pushes more cores, faster clocks, faster memory and more TFLOPS than its predecessor, the 2016 Pascal-powered Titan X.

Stats for the Titan Xp include: 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4 Gbp; 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz; and 12 TFLOPs of “brute force.” Nvidia says its making the GPU open to the Mac community with new Pascal drivers, coming later this month.

What's more, according to 9to5Mac, Pascal-based GPUs will be Mac-enabled via upcoming drivers. This means that you will be able to use a GTX 1080, for instance, on a Mac system via an eGPU setup, or with a Hackintosh build.

Clips arrives for the iPhone and iPad

Apple has released Clips, a new app that allows iPhone and iPad users to create “expressive videos.” It lets you combine video clips, photos and music into videos to share with friends through the Messages app, or on Instagram, Facebook and other social networks.

Clips also introduces Live Titles, a feature that lets users create animated captions and titles using just their voice. Effects including comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters.

Clips lets users create multi-clip videos on iPhone or iPad without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools, according to Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. Touch and hold a single button to shoot live video and photos, or add them from the Photo Library. Then add artistic filters, speech bubbles, shapes or emoji.

Like other mobile video editing apps, users will be able to record video or take photos from within the app, and then stylize them with text, filters, speech bubbles, and emoji. You can also add elevator music as a soundtrack and create animated backdrops.

iMac rumors: Power to spare, late October release

Rumors are always suspect, especially when they're from a blog that few have heard about. But when those rumors coincide with what we'd all like to see and they're from a site that has a track record of finding references to unreleased Macs with macOS versions...well, they're worth spreading around. That's the case with a rumor from Pike's Universum, which cites a "little bird" that is "usually pretty accurate" as the source for details about the expected Pro-level iMacs that Apple hinted at early in the week.

The specs sound juicy!

Intel Xeon E3-1285 V6 processor as a top-end CPU choice. The processor hasn't been released at this time, but might be similar to the E3-1280V6 with integrated Intel HD Graphics P630.

Pebble owners are a devoted bunch, having crowdfunded the first big cross-platform smartwatch into existence and seeing it become the template that rival smartwatch makers would follow. But now that Pebble has been acquired by Fitbit and is presumably nearing the end of its life, Pebble users fretted that their watches would cease to work once Pebble dies. That’s not the case.

Pebble just rolled out an iOS and Android update that frees its watches from cloud-based online servers. That means when Pebble goes offline, your watch will still work. You’ll also still be able to install firmware updates sans server, including language packs, and side-load apps onto the watch.

Review: Apple’s $329 iPad is for people who have...

Andrew Cunningham

Apple isn’t shy about admitting it: the biggest feature of its newest iPad is the price. At $329, it’s $70 cheaper than the iPad Air 2 used to be, $270 cheaper than the smaller iPad Pro costs now, and $170 cheaper than the initial starting price of the iPad back in 2010. It’s a big shift, especially after a year-and-a-half where larger and more expensive iPads were Apple’s main focus.

That’s apparently where the users are. Apple told us that the iPad Air 2 was its most popular iPad, and it had been since its introduction in October of 2014. It was the most popular with enterprises, the most popular with small businesses, the most popular in schools, and the most popular with people who were new to the iPad altogether (more than half of all iPad Air 2 buyers were picking up their first iPad). And even after the introduction of the iPad Mini in 2012 and...

Power, a consumer insights, advisory services and data and analytics.

In features, Microsoft is the highest performer in three areas: variety of pre-loaded applications; Internet connectivity; and availability of manufacturer-supported accessories.

With attacks against Mac users growing in number and sophistication, endpoint security vendor F-Secure has decided to acquire Little Flocker, a macOS application that provides behavior-based protection against ransomware and other malicious programs.

Little Flocker can be used to enforce strict access controls to a Mac's files and directories as well as its webcam, microphone and other resources. It's particularly effective against ransomware, spyware, computer Trojans and other malicious programs that attempt to steal, encrypt or destroy files.

F-Secure plans to integrate Little Flocker, which it calls "the most advanced security technology available for Macs," into its new Xfence technology. Xfence is designed to  add behavioral-based protection to its existing endpoint security products for macOS.

Fluent: excitement for the Apple Watch has peaked

Apple is reportedly announcing the “Apple Watch 3” (shown in a fanciful mock-up by Market Exclusive) in the second half of 2017. When the Watch first hit the market in 2015, it was hailed as the next big thing - three years later does this excitement still hold? According to Fluent, the answer is no.

The people-based, performance-based marketing platform, just released its third annual Apple Watch Survey, which shows the ebb and flow of Apple Watch interest by the market since its inception. The watch has plateaued, according to Fluent. The survey shows that only current Apple Watch owners get how great of a product it is and nearly half of them don’t plan on upgrading. Non-owners view it more as an extra expense. This could cause trouble for Apple’s plans to increase the watch’s market share, according to the report. Key findings from Fluent include:

If Trump enacted his promised corporate tax reforms, Apple would likely repatriate the bulk of its $230B cash reserves held overseas, and see its profits jump by 16%. The prediction was made by Citi in analysis seen by Business Insider.

Trump’s tax reform plans include reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 15% in the US, and applying a tax of only 10% to the profits of US companies that want to repatriate cash being held overseas […] The proposals would make it likely that Apple would move its foreign cash back to the US in order to pay the least amount of tax. In the most recent quarter, Apple said it was holding $246 billion in cash, of which $230 billion was held in foreign subsidiaries.

The combination of the two would have a significant impact on earnings per share, says Citi …

Washington Post:

A group of reporters and editors from the student newspaper, the Booster Redux at Pittsburg High School in southeastern Kansas, had gathered to talk about Amy Robertson, who was hired as the high school’s head principal on March 6.

The student journalists had begun researching Robertson, and quickly found some discrepancies in her education credentials. For one, when they researched Corllins University, the private university where Robertson said she got her master’s and doctorate degrees years ago, the website didn’t work. They found no evidence that it was an accredited university.

“There were some things that just didn’t quite add up,” Balthazor told The Washington Post.

The students began digging into a weeks-long investigation that would result in an article published Friday questioning the legitimacy of the principal’s degrees and of her work as an education consultant.

On Tuesday night, Robertson resigned.

Notable apps and app updates for April 5, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

macOS Apps/Updates

Xeric Design has rolled out Cinematica 3, an update of its video management software for the Mac. 

The app lets you manage your video library in detail, keeping track of dozens of properties for each video. You can sort and search by multiple criteria and technical properties, customize keywords and collection icons, and use smart collections to catalogue all your videos. Version 3 adds a modern toolbar with more than a dozen options, support for AV Foundation and FFmpeg importers, new storyboard options including full Retina support, support for posters and text descriptions, and more.

Cinematic 3 requires macOS 10.10 or...

Fatdog64: More Bark Than Bite


Fatdog64 has the potential to serve as an alternative lightweight OS to Linux distros such as Puppy Linux, Knoppix and Zephyr. However, it has some critical usability issues that need to be fixed first. Fatdog64 seems to have lost its performance edge over earlier versions that made it more appealing as an alternative "frugal" Linux candidate. The numerous Puppy Linux derivatives and Knoppix have solid reputations for fast and efficient performance on older, less powerful desktop and portable computers.

Oh Samsung

Motherboard:

Last month, the CIA got a lot of attention when WikiLeaks published internal documents purporting to show how the spy agency can monitor people through their Samsung smart TVs. There was a caveat to the hack, however—the hijack involved older models of Samsung TVs and required the CIA have physical access to a TV to install the malware via a USB stick.

But the window to this sort of hijacking is far wider than originally thought because a researcher in Israel has uncovered 40 unknown vulnerabilities, or zero-days, that would allow someone to remotely hack millions of newer Samsung smart TVs, smart watches, and mobile phones already on the market, as well as ones slated for future release, without needing physical access to them. The security holes are in an open-source operating system called Tizen that Samsung has been rolling out in its devices over the last few years.

Panic on making a living building apps for iOS vs...

From long time macOS and iOS developer Panic (the folks who produced the excellent Firewatch game, mentioned yesterday):

If you remember, 2016 was the year we killed Status Board, our very nice data visualization app. Now, a lot of it was our fault. But it was another blow to our heavy investment in pro-level iOS apps a couple years ago, a decision we’re still feeling the ramifications of today as we revert back to a deep focus on macOS. Trying to do macOS quality work on iOS cost us a lot of time for sadly not much payoff. We love iOS, we love our iPhones, and we love our iPads. But we remain convinced that it’s not — yet? — possible to make a living selling pro software on those platforms. Which is a real bummer!

Australian regulator sues Apple over alleged iPhone...

Reuters:

The U.S. technology giant “bricked” – or disabled with a software update – hundreds of smartphones and tablet devices, and then refused to unlock them on the grounds that customers had had the devices serviced by non-Apple repairers, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said in a court filing.

And:

The regulator said that between September 2014 and February 2016, Apple customers who downloaded software updates then connected their devices to their computers received a message saying the device “could not be restored and the device had stopped functioning”.

Customers then asked Apple to fix their devices, only to be told by the company that “no Apple entity … was required to, or would, provide a remedy” for free, the documents added.

Apple patent hints at Apple Pencil support for Macs

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170097746) for a “collaboration system” that hints at use of an Apple Pencil on Macs via virtual whiteboards. The patent would allow remote participants during a conferenceto look at an electronic whiteboards which may be run as an application on a “personal computer.”

Of course, it’s possible that Apple is referring to the iPad as a personal computer. After all, the company has positioned it as a laptop replacement. 

Another interesting aspect of the patent is that written content will be stored inan electronic pen (the Apple Pencil) and, on demand, streamed from the pen to a collaboration server. Where the pen is configured to stream the information over the network to the collaboration server directly, it may do so. 

Alternatively, the electronic pen may stream the information to a computer 58 or other handheld electronic device associated with the pen user, which may process the data and/or relay the data to the...

Unwired Planet: Apple owes us $33 million

Unwired Planet told a California federal judge Wednesday it plans to seek $33 million in royalties from Apple in an upcoming infringement trial over three of its wireless, location and voice recognition patents, saying the amount is reasonable considering Apple wants $400 million from Samsung for patent violation, reports Law360.

In July 2016, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit handed down an opinion vacating in part a 2015 summary judgment that found Apple not in infringement of certain cellular and voice recognition patents by Unwired Planet. The company sued Apple in 2012, claiming a variety of Apple products infringed 10 of its patents for cellular data transmission, voice recognition systems, device provisioning...

Apple signs contact with its frenemy for ‘iPhone 8’...

Apple has reportedly signed a two-year contract with its frenemy Samsung for up to 92 million curved OLED panels for the upcoming “iPhone 8,” according to DigiTimes.

Based on the contract, Samsung Display will ship 70-92 million small-size OLED panels to Apple in 2017. This means that about 30% of iPhone devices shipped in 2017 will come with curved OLED panels, given that Apple currently ships about 200 million iPhone devices a year.

Japan-based Nikkei also reported that Apple has ordered 70 million OLED panels from Samsung Display. But to meet increasing demand from Apple, Samsung Display has been exerting efforts to ramp up its capacity to 95 million units.

And Taiwan-based Yuanta Securities Investment Consulting has estimated that shipments of new iPhone devices are likely to reach 100 million units in 2017, of which at least 55 million will feature OLED panels.

ACCC sues Apple over hardware repair policies...

Another day, another lawsuit. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has filed a federal lawsuit against Apple for allegedly disabling iPhone and iPad hardware repaired by unauthorized third parties. 

The Commission says the tech giant violated Australia’s consumer law by shutting down or “bricking” the devices with an iOS update, then telling customers the company wouldn’t fix the problem at no cost because their devices had been previously serviced by Apple, according to The Wall Street Journal. It’s seeking penalties, injunctions, declarations, compliance program orders, corrective notices and costs in its action against Apple.

Apple begins offering refunds for customers who paid...

If you happened to pay the initial $2.99 fee for Apple’s spiffy new Workflow app, App’s going to give you that money back along with tax.

Apple has apparently begun emailing iTunes customers who recently purchased Workflow to let them know that the app is now free and that refunds are imminent.

It’s unknown as to exactly when the purchase window is for refunds.

When Apple acquired the Workflow app in late March, a company spokesperson said Workflow would remain in the App Store as a free app, but didn’t say whether Workflow’s technology would be built into iOS.

If you’ve received an email about a refund for the Workflow app, please let us know in the comments.

Rumor: Apple to debut next-gen Apple Watch later...

The current rumor has it that Apple will continue to sell the Series 2 Apple Watch as well as release the unit, dubbed the “Series 3”, thereby offering a choice of two generations of Apple Watch at different price points.

According to inside sources, Quanta will remain the sole supplier of the Series 3 Apple Watch while a new supplier, Compal Electronics, will be added to the roster to continue production of older models.

The current Apple Watch models are solely handled by Quanta Computer. The next generation of Apple Watch is expected to be produced by Taiwan-based ODM while production of the existing second-generation Apple Watch will be partially given to Compal.

Compal, which refused to comment on the story, is presently one of the world’s largest contract notebook manufacturers, and last year shipped 5M wearable and Internet of Things devices.

The next generation Apple Watch is rumored to include an LTE version, which would allow for a data...

Twitter launched Thursday a ‘Lite’ version of its service that runs from the browser on a smartphone, in a bid to attract customers in emerging markets, who have flaky Internet connections or are wary of spending too much on data.

The micro-blogging service said that Lite had been designed as a Progressive Web App in collaboration with Google and is available at mobile.twitter.com, and does not require an app store. It is said to take up less than 1MB on the device.

Lite offers key features of Twitter such as the timeline, tweets, direct messages, trends, profiles, media uploads, notifications. With features like data savings, offline access to loaded content, resilience on flaky networks and fast load times, it is designed for emerging markets where networks are still patchy and data expensive.

It is seeking pecuniary penalties, injunctions, declarations, compliance program orders, corrective notices, and costs against Apple.

The Australian competition regulator and national consumer law champion started an investigation following reports relating to “error 53”, an inaccuracy which disabled some consumers’ iPads or iPhones after downloading an iOS update.

Apple is preparing its supply chain for the onslaught of next-generation iPhone sales in the fall, expected to be a bumper year with much anticipation for the radical ‘iPhone 8’ redesign. According to ETNews, via Digitimes, Apple has agreed a two year contract with Samsung Display to supply curved iPhone OLED panels.

Samsung is apparently upping capacity to as much as 92 million units in 2017, as demand from Apple rises.
