U2 deal cost Apple in excess of $100 million,...

Apple's giveaway of the latest U2 album cost it over $100 million, sources tell the New York Times. The company is said to have paid the band and its music label, Universal, a blanket royalty fee, and on top of that promised a marketing campaign worth up to $100 million. That includes a worldwide TV campaign, which kicked off with a commercial shown during Apple's livestream on Tuesday....

iPhone 6 Sales Crush Means Late-Night Waits For Some...

Even after the months of hype and speculation, the behind-the-scenes development and manufacture, and then the announcement Tuesday, it seems Apple's servers weren't quite ready for the workout they got from would-be early adopters of its newest iPhone. Preorders through Verizon Wireless and AT&T largely started without a hitch at midnight, though some customers on Twitter have since complained about issues. Those problems were nothing compared to the issues experienced by Sprint and T-Mobile customers. The Sprint and T-Mobile sites were still down for many users nearly two hours after presales were slated to start. Access to Sprint's site faded in and out, while the T-Mobile site continued to display a form to register for a reminder for when the preorders began. Some people joked on Twitter that they "might as well wait for the iPhone 6S now." Apple's store itself was down for a few hours, too.

iPhone 6 Plus Pre-orders Sell Out, iPhone 6 Still...

If you're hoping to have an iPhone 6 Plus on September 19, your best option now is to wait in line at your local Apple Store or cell service provider store because Apple has sold out of its pre-order inventory only hours after starting orders. The smaller screen iPhone 6 is still available for next Friday delivery instead of the week or longer wait iPhone 6 Plus buyers are now facing.

The Mac Observer Spin: If you didn't want to get up far too early and fight with Apple's fumbled pre-order system, and you want to have a new iPhone delivered on September 19, it looks like you're buying the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. If you really want the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, you'll be waiting in line next Friday.

News: Apple delaying SMS Continuity until October?

New information found on Apple’s page on iOS 8 Continuity suggests that the company may be delaying the activation of the iOS 8 SMS Continuity feature until some time in October, possibly to coincide with the expected release of OS X Yosemite. Originally announced and demonstrated at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June, SMS Continuity will allow users with an iPhone and other iOS or OS X device to send and receive traditional…

Reports have surfaced that search engine Yahoo (and possibly others) were threatened by the US government to comply with PRISM surveillance requirements, or face a $250,000 per day fine in 2008. While Yahoo fought the demand through the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, it ultimately lost and complied with the order, which paved the way towards mass surveillance of Internet users....

Rumors talk 5K Apple monitor, multiple colors for 12...

Apple may be prepared to launch a 5120x2880 monitor later this year, says an LCD market research firm, WitsView. That would however be beyond the limits of the DisplayPort 1.2 standard used in Thunderbolt 2; even a Mac Pro can only support a 4K display at specific refresh rates. A more likely resolution would therefore be 4096x2160, DisplayPort's current maximum. At the same time, Dell has announced a 5K display, and whatever technology that uses could presumably be adopted by Apple....

Meet the 7 apps that will give your amateur...

If you want to become a world-famous Instagram photographer, or at least boost your follower and like counts, I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
There are seven highly effective habits of popular Instagram users, and none of them has to do with Instagram. (OK, one.)

Photographers, video personalities, fashion bloggers, and famous foodies use these seven apps to take their Instagrams to the next level, and you’d
never even know it. Instagram’s own filters go a long way toward making your lattes look far richer than they do in person, and a recent update added a slew of editing tools. But the
popular photo-sharing app doesn’t want to overload you with options, which is why its latest time-lapse feature...

iPhone 6 preorders plagued with problems

If you preordered an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus without any trouble last night, congratulations: You were one of the lucky few.

Apple, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon began taking orders for the new phones, which hit store shelves Sept. 19, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific/3:01 a.m. Eastern. The process is the same as it always was: Stay awake (or wake up insanely early) and spend an hour trying to get through the ordering process without punching your computer in frustration. But this year, preordering the iPhone was especially infuriating.

The Apple Store was reportedly down for up to two hours in some parts of the country—same for Sprint and T-Mobile. Verizon and AT&T’s sites were spotty. Some customers preordered without a problem, while others couldn’t add the phone to their carts. Verizon and Sprint were battling each other for your...

Following our report in July detailing Apple’s work on a new 4K display, today a report from Taiwan-based display researchers WitsView claims Apple will release a new 5K iMac by the end of this year.

Adding a little bit more weight to today’s report is the fact that Dell just announced a 27-inch 5120×2880 5K display that would be a likely candidate for a future Retina iMac panel if today’s rumors are true.

If you were wondering how much it cost Apple to give away a copy of U2’s Songs of Innocence album to every customer, the answer, according the the New York Times, is more than $100M.

To release U2’s album free, Apple paid the band and Universal an unspecified fee as a blanket royalty and committed to a marketing campaign for the band worth up to $100 million, according to several people briefed on the deal. That marketing will include a global television campaign, the first piece of which was a commercial that was shown during the event.

Yep, that album that ended up on many people’s iPhones...

The Apple Watch was not designed specifically for me...

A whimsical post with a valid message at its core. One value of the Apple Watch becomes evident when you receive a call or text and your hands/arms are busy/full:

To check that message or call all I have to do is lift my wrist and the gyro kicks in, turning the display on. Then I can simply glance at my wrist, rather than stopping the dogs to fish out the phone, to see if the message is important enough to drop what I’m doing. And I can then respond through the Watch rather than having to dig for the phone.

Exactly.

T-Mobile Joins iPhone 6 Pre-order Lineup

When Apple's just introduced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders started -- or at least tried to start -- just after midnight Pacific time, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint were option, but T-Mobile wasn't. That finally changed several hours later, which means not only can hopeful iPhone buyers pre-order the new model, but they can get an unlocked version that works with multiple carriers, too.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple's iPhone 6 pre-order process was a pain, and T-Mobile's absence when it launched just after midnight was frustrating for many potential customers. Considering how many people seem to want the new models, however, the T-Mobile delay probably won't have a negative impact on sales.

After years of annual rumors that each successive iPhone would feature NFC, there was understandable skepticism when the rumor rolled around again this year for the iPhone 6. It was looking like Apple might have put all its short-range communication eggs in one basket with Bluetooth LE.

Instead, of course, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus got NFC as the mechanism for Apple’s contactless payment service, Apple PayPando suggests that the company’s timing may not be entire coincidental.

While U.S. banks have so far ignored the more secure chip-and-pin cards used in Europe, sticking doggedly to magnetic strips and...

Apple is set to bring Apple Pay, its mobile wallet service, to China using a partnership with China UnionPay. @KhaosT on Twitter found references to the credit card type in iOS 8 code and now MarketWatch is corroborating with sources that a deal is in the works.

Apple announced Apple Pay as a US only service, coming to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in October with a software update. A deal with UnionPay would obviously mean Apple wants to bring the feature to Chinese iOS customers soon.

A review of 1,211 apps carried out by a coalition of privacy officials across 19 countries found that 60 percent of them failed at least one basic privacy test, reports the WSJ.

The officials found that 60% of apps raised privacy concerns, based on three criteria: They did not disclose how they used personal information; they required that the user give up an excessive amount of personal data as a condition of downloading the app; and their privacy policies were rendered in type too small to be read on a phone’s screen …

By then, many customers had started pre-ordering the new iPhones on the Apple Store app — also a hit-or-miss proposition for some. Inventory seemed to change suddenly,…

You Should Play: Zen Pinball

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Dedicated arcades are dead, for the most part—save for a few pinball machines and video game cabinets tucked away in corners of movie theaters, bowling alleys, laser tag facilities, or trendy arcade-themed bars. Despite this, video games haven't really suffered at all from the loss of arcade gaming: Arcade games are still on consoles, computers, phones, tablets, and more, and there are more games coming out now than ever before. But the same can't be said for pinball machines. They're expensive to produce and maintain, plus take up a lot of space. In other words, they're not exactly ideal for the average living room or bedroom setting.

Can you hear that? That’s the sound of me typing this article out on my new typewriter. Yes, it is still 2014. I’m just trying out Hanx Writer, a typewriter app for the iPad, brought to you by Tom Hanks. 

Yes, that Tom Hanks. Hanks collects typewriters and built this app as a bit of a passion project—in fact, if you download the app, you can read all about it in an opening letter written by Hanks himself. The fact that it is typed out in an old timey font makes it feel like Hanks wrote that letter just for you.

Many people are still unable to access the Apple Online Store to purchase Apple’s newest devices. Despite availability issues, many models are already selling out. Carrier websites are the first to be affected, naturally, as they always get less supply than Apple itself.

Both AT&T and Verizon are quoting three week shipping delays for the Plus, meaning customers buying now won’t get their phones until around the 7th of October. At the time of writing, the iPhone 6 is still available. At Apple’s own store, it seems like the 64 GB iPhone 6 Plus and the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus is now also...

As expected, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are both now available for pre-order on Apple’s online store and carrier websites, at least for some users.

Initial buyers seem to have the most luck on carrier websites as well as the Apple Store App. The store is almost an hour late in opening.

You can get the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 starting at $199 for the 16 GB model. Unlike previous years, there is no 32 GB option, which was replaced by a larger 64 GB model at $299 and a new 128 GB version for $399.

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus: Which one should you buy?

It’s iPhone buying season again and this year we’re faced with a very tough decision. Apple recently unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at its press event on Sept. 9, 2014 and as many rumors indicated, we now have a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model. Normally our choice would be narrowed down between color and capacity, but this year it’s much more than that…

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may seem very similar on the outside, but that’s not exactly the case. While the screen sizes may differ between these two models, there are also a few different features...

Sean Bonner says, “There’s no way for a brand to “insert themselves into a conversation” about a tragedy like this without it being bad.

“Today (or whatever other tragedy this kind of thing has happened with) isn’t the time for marketing. It isn’t the time for branding or getting people to pay attention to companies. It’s a time for people to interact with each other, and the only respectful thing for brands to do is stay out of it and wait for tomorrow to get back to business.”

How, when, and where to preorder the iPhone 6

Tonight’s the night. The hour draws near. Put on a pot of coffee and set an alarm. iPhone 6 preorders start at midnight.

But Apple isn’t the only place you can place your order. Big box retailers like Walmart and Best Buy will also take preorders, and of course your friendly carrier stores are eager to help you too. You probably already know what color and capacity you’re after, so now it’s a matter of figuring out where to actually place your order.

Apple

There’s something to be said about going right to the source. Preorders start at 12:01 a.m. on Friday (which is Thursday night, of course, not Friday night), and Apple has a trade-in program if you’d like to get a gift card for your old iPhone, and even offers ...

Of course, this isn’t exactly the most shocking or unexpected news. It would be hard to believe that Apple had hired a group of...

Apple's New iPhones: Ho-Hum and Controversial...


Apple's new iPhones didn't take center stage at its product launch this week. "The fact that they are ho-hum is interesting in itself," said Nick Spencer, a senior practice director at ABI Research. "Apple is now a company that follows rather than leads." Apple is "at least 18 months late with a large screen device," he pointed out. Further, its Apple Pay mobile payment feature is "not exactly new, although Apple may perform the characteristic trick of perfecting it so the consumer actually adopts it -- not a trivial achievement."
