Comcast takes another crack at being a mobile...

While we mainly hear about the four main wireless carriers whenever a new phone is released, there are many more providers out there than just Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Now an industry giant is looking to join the fray: Comcast.

As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, the cable TV giant will finally jump into the wireless phone market with an Xfinity Mobile service that had been previously reported. The move comes at a time when the lines between cable and telecommunications are becoming increasingly blurred, with AT&T recently launching the...

With an overall satisfaction score among tablet owners of 855 (on a 1,000-point scale), Microsoft’s achievement is largely due to its top rankings in the features and styling & design factors, according to J.D.

F-Secure buys Little Flocker to combat macOS...

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:

Under Trump tax plans, AAPL would repatriate $230B...

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.

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...

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.

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.

It’s seeking penalties, injunctions, declarations, compliance program orders, corrective notices and costs in its action against Apple.

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.

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.

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.

Apple shares new demos of its proposed WebGPU...

Earlier this year, Apple proposed a new GPU on the Web Community Group to work towards more powerful graphics on the web. The WebGPU standard Apple proposed is much more object-oriented than WebGPU and allows developers to create and store objects that represent state. Additionally, it allows for objects that can process a broader set of commands. This reduces the work needed to perform during a drawing operation.

Now, Apple has shared a WebGPU prototype and demos to show developers what the new standard is capable of…

Forget Apple. Xiaomi CEO Now Wants to Be More Like...

Xiaomi says it's misunderstood. Once compared with Apple for its sleek smartphones and charismatic leadership, the Chinese startup is seeking an image makeover as it tries to recover from a sales-growth slide. From a report: And the brand its billionaire co-founder Lei Jun wants to be compared with: Costco Wholesale Corp., the Issaquah, Washington-based warehouse retailer that sells everything from wine and diamond rings to bulging boxes of cereal and fruit at knockdown prices. Xiaomi's revenue will probably reach $15 billion this year as the Beijing-based maker of products ranging from pens and air purifiers to TVs and smartphones adopts a new business model and fine-tunes operations, Lei, 47, said in a recent interview. "We are not Apple," Lei, clad in a black polo shirt and blue jeans, said at Xiaomi's Bengaluru office in India, its biggest overseas market. "We have the same value system as Costco. We want users to enjoy better products at an affordable price."

iPhone 8 rumors: Launch date has been pushed back to...

We’d forgive the iPhone 7 for feeling a little underappreciated, 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.

Athleticism has never been my strong suit. I didn’t play any sports growing up and I don’t closely follow any today. I only started being physically active one year ago thanks in large part to my Apple Watch, and even then running has not been something I’ve enjoyed. Until recently that is…

I’ve been running with Apple Watch Nike+ ($379-$399) and tracking my workouts with the Nike+ Run Club app. My super short review is that I think any Apple Watch Series 2 is an excellent running watch while the NRC app has some kinks to work out. More on my experience below.

Lawyers win again in latest privacy class-action...

Enlarge

Twitter, Yelp, Instagram, Foursquare and a few other apps are agreeing to a $5.3 million settlement to an invasion-of-privacy class action in which the companies' apps were accused of accessing the address books of iOS users without their knowledge or consent. About 30 percent of the deal likely will go to the lawyers who sued—about $1.59 million. The remainder is earmarked for the estimated 7 million members of the class. If distributed evenly, that's about 53 cents for each class member—and within the ballpark of distribution ratios of other Silicon Valley privacy class-action settlements.

The lawsuit (PDF) was filed in 2012 and alleged that the apps engaged in "unconscionable,...

Why iOS 10.3.1 is a "must-install" update

This week's iOS 10.3.1 update might have seemed anticlimactic by comparison to the original 10.3 update, but a quick look at the security notes issued for the update shows a very good reason why every owner of an iOS device running 10.3 should install the new update immediately.

The update patches a vulnerability discovered and documented by Gal Beniamini of Google Project Zero in which "an attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip". This vulnerability took advantage of a bug in the code in Broadcom's Wi-Fi stack, which Apple uses in its devices.

At this point, Craig Young of cyber security firm Tripwire's Vulnerability and Exposures Research Team is suggesting that anyone with a device with an affected Broadcom chip -- which includes the iPhone 4 and newer, all iPads and all iPod touch devices -- should disable Wi-Fi in public spaces until a fix is...

Senior Vice President Phil Schiller told a handful of reporters in a discussion at Apple's offices in Cupertino, California, on Tuesday that the tech giant company has no plans for touchscreen Macs, or for machines powered solely by the kind of ARM processors used in the iPhone and iPad. 

However, executives left open the possibility ARM chips could play a broader role as companion processors, something that showed up first with the T1 processor that powers the Touch Bar in the new MacBook Pro. The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) still thinks we’ll see Apple-developed chips in Macs at some point in the future. A February Bloomberg report, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” saidApple...

GIPHY Says: The most fun you'll have all day!

OK, this is without a doubt one of the most fun apps I've played with in a while. You know GIPHY, the app that lets you search for or submit GIF animations? Well, they've just shipped GIPHY Says, a free app that takes a short video of you or someone else talking, then turns it into a GIF complete with a cartoon balloon of your words.

No, you don't need to type in the words. GIPHY Says uses the speech recognition capabilities of your iPhone and turns what you say into text automatically. Within seconds,  you can be annoying friends, relatives and co-workers with your latest GIF creations. 

GIPHY Says takes videos in both landscape and portrait orientation -- I just did these examples in landscape because they're easier to embed on a web page. My only wish? That the app would allow you to switch to the rear camera.

Comment: Apple’s announced intention to design its...

Apple’s announcement earlier this week that it plans to design its own GPUs for future iPhones and iPads did more than signal bad news for Imagination Technologies. It also added weight to the idea that Apple will at some point want to ditch Intel chips in Macs in favour of its own design of ARM-based CPUs.

The arguments in favor of Apple designing its own Mac processors are exactly the same ones that led the company to design its own A-series chips for iOS devices. Apple gets total control – something the company values highly.

Control of costs is part of it, of course. Tim Cook in particular got to the position he’s in today in large part by demonstrating a mastery of the supply-chain, and a significant goal there is to keep costs as low as possible in order to maximise margins. Apple eliminates royalty...
