Simple automated Christmas lighting with BlissLights...

I usually put up my Christmas lights around Thanksgiving, and in the past that has meant putting LED light nets on some shrubs, running a string of lights along the gutter line of the house, and then changing out some security bulbs in the front yard with red and green lights. This year, my travels kept me from doing that so I had to figure out a way to get lighting done in minutes rather than hours. Fortunately, I was able to make the house look festive very quickly with BlissLights laser projectors ($139.00), HomeKit, and Siri.

How do BlissLights work? They are small laser projectors that use holographic laser technology to project thousands of tiny bright dots on a house or other "target". There are actually two different types -- BlissLights Motion and BlissLights Color. With the former, some of the light dots move and flicker, while with the latter the projector also uses LED lights to provide a background...

Nokia sues Apple, claiming patent infringement

Another day, another lawsuit. Nokia is suing Apple in Germany and the U.S. for (what else?) patent infringement.

"Since agreeing (to) a license covering some patents from the Nokia Technologies portfolio in 2011, Apple has declined subsequent offers made by Nokia to license other of its patented inventions which are used by many of Apple's products," Nokia says.

"Through our sustained investment in research and development, Nokia has created or contributed to many of the fundamental technologies used in today's mobile devices, including Apple products,” Ilkka Rahnasto, head of Patent Business at Nokia says. “After several years of negotiations trying to reach agreement to cover Apple's use of these patents, we are now taking action to defend our rights."

Powered via the included AC plug, Wi-Fi Bluetooth Sound Bar can also charge an iPod,...

Britain prepares tighter laws on drones after air...

In April, a British Airways jet was hit by a suspected drone as it landed at London’s Heathrow airport, while in August a passenger plane narrowly avoided being hit by a drone as it prepared to land in Cornwall.

There are a lot of very responsible drone owners, but like many things in life, there are a few that are so irresponsible, it gives everyone a bad name. Flying a drone anywhere near an airport or over a major fire when helicopters are trying to fight the fire is just plain stupid.

Facebook’s Live Audio sound promising for...

One of my favorite things to do with an iPhone is to broadcast from a remote location when the situation warrants. Just this past week our local county seat had an extended power outage lasting most of the day, and I was able to show live what the town looked like with all businesses and traffic lights dark. It’s not only enjoyable, but can perform a public service to others.

There are many times, though, when I would prefer to broadcast audio only. I often have situations where I am teaching a class or giving a talk. Others are interested in hearing, but there is no applicable video to send or that would be of interest. I’ve often searched for an app that would permit me to broadcast audio only and let me basically be a “radio” station where others can listen. My search has been in vain — but now that is about to change.

Yesterday Facebook announced a companion service to their Live...

Super Mario Run sets new sales records

Super Mario Run is already half way to projected first month download and revenue totals, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data. The game surpassed 25 million worldwide downloads in its four-day opening weekend of Dec. 15-18, while earning more than $21 million in global gross revenue during this same period. 

Nintendo’s title reached the 25 million installs milestone faster than any previous mobile game, a feat that we’ve visualized in the following chart. Pokémon GO, which previously held the record for fastest mobile game to 25 million downloads, took 11 days from its July 6, 2016 launch to reach that point—seven days longer than Super Mario Run. As of this writing, the iOS-only game remains No. 1 for iPhone downloads in 75 of the 80 countries where it’s ranking, and No. 1 for revenue in 23.

Super Mario Run breaks records, gets 40 million...

(credit: Kyle Orland)

Super Mario Run's $10 asking price and the Internet connectivity requirement may have earned it some poor reviews in the iTunes Store, but they haven't kept the game from being successful. According to a Japanese press release with quotes from both Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Apple's Phil Schiller, Nintendo says that the game has been downloaded more than 40 million times in its first four days. The app ranks number one in the "Top Free" charts in 140 countries and is in the top 10 in the "Top Grossing" category in 100 countries.

In Mario Run's case, a download isn't quite the same as a purchase, since the app is free to download but requires a...

Apple updates its AirPort Extreme software

Apple has released new versions of its router software: 7.6.8 for the 802.11n AirPort Extreme, and 7.7.8 for the 802.11ac AirPort Extreme. According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes an issue where the routers would not respond to the AirPort Utility when "Back to My Mac" is enabled. There are also security fixes.

You can install the upgrades via the AirPort Utility. If the routers are not visible as a result of "Back to my Mac" being enabled, disable the feature and reboot the routers. 

Apple is apparently abandoning the AirPort Express, the AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. However, the company ranks highest in overall satisfaction among wireless router manufacturers in a new study by J.P. Power.

Opinion: Will Apple switch from Lightning to USB-C...

When Apple launched the iPhone 5 with a new-fangled Lightning port – instead of the 30-pin dock connector that had been a standard feature on every previous generation of iPhone, as well as on iPods since 2003 – there was a great deal of outrage.

‘What about all the docks and speaker systems we own that have 30-pin connectors?’ was the question many asked. The decision was described as arrogant and unreasonable. Apple was accused of profiteering, by forcing everyone to buy new cables, docks and speakers.

Apple responded in three ways. It pointed to the undeniable technical superiority of the new port. It explained the difficulty of making ever slimmer devices with a port designed for much thicker ones. And it assured everyone that this would be the last change for a long time – that the Lightning port would be around for many years to come …

Like Djay 2 for iPhone, Djay Pro features a two-deck turntable interface, Spotify integration, and native support for external MIDI controllers. Djay Pro also relies on the iPhone 7’s haptic feedback for a more realistic sensation when scratching and scrubbing the waveforms, and 3D Touch is also employed so that DJs can set a cue point in the song without taking their finger off the waveform.

The Mac is in the back seat, especially the Mac Pro

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Interviews with people familiar with Apple’s inner workings reveal that the Mac is getting far less attention than it once did. They say the Mac team has lost clout with the famed industrial design group led by Jony Ive and the company’s software team. They also describe a lack of clear direction from senior management, departures of key people working on Mac hardware and technical challenges that have delayed the roll-out of new computers.

Combine this with Tim Cook’s response to employees in an internal memo:

“Some folks in the media have raised the question about whether we’re committed to desktops,” Cook wrote. “If there’s any doubt about that with our teams, let me be very clear: we have great...

Through the teardown, iFixit cites a multitude of closely knit components within the AirPods, along with a few “quality issues” within the charging case that may be the reason for the months-long delay of the wireless headphones.

The teardown began by separating the speaker portion of the AirPod from the rest of the device, uncovering a miniature coaxial cable and two IR proximity sensors, which allow the AirPods to detect whenever they’re inside an ear, and play/pause music accordingly.

iFixit cited a “waterfall of glue” inside the base of the AirPod that essentially surrounds the charging point for the...

The new MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, which have a different connector than that of USB-A devices and cables like the iPhone sync cable. That means you need to buy an adapter. Depending on your devices, you may need to buy several adapters.

Sparkle gives Mac users a great way to build website visually, a natural fit for people who don't think in symbols and don't want to be constrained by predefined templates. Former iWeb users will find themselves at home with Sparkle, going well beyond what iWeb offered.

For example the menu system scales from manual set up to fully automatic with synchronization to the website structure, whereas image galleries not only generate @2x and @3x retina images, but they generate a full set with thumbnails, for each image, for each device.

External Link: Is the Mac Struggling Inside Apple?

Over at Bloomberg Technology, Mark Gurman lays out the case that Apple is indeed marginalizing the Mac internally, as we had suggested recently. Gurman cites numerous sources within the company who have revealed troubling changes. These days, the Mac hardware team gets less face time with Jony Ive’s design group, and managers have become more likely to float multiple competing ideas, meaning that time spent on losing designs ends up wasted. On the software side, Gurman says that there is no longer a dedicated Mac operating system group, with all engineers on a single team and many of them focusing on iOS first. Even Apple employees are asking if Mac desktops remain strategically important, which prompted a response from Tim Cook that was positive, if vague.

Apple’s Wireless AirPods Were Worth the Wait

AirPods, Apple’s cordless versions of its iconic EarPods, are finally here. Julio Ojeda-Zapata spent time with the Bluetooth earbuds and found them to be worth the wait. Their audio quality is not spectacular, but voice calling works superbly, and wireless pairing with Macs and iOS devices is painless.

FINsix announces Dart-C charger for USB-C laptops

FINsix has announced the DART-C, which it says is the world’s smallest charger for USB-C laptops such as the 12-inch MacBook and 2016 MacBook Pros. It’s a 65-watt laptop charger that’s up to four times smaller and lighter than a traditional A/C adapter. 

The additional built-in USB port allows for simultaneous charging of another electronic device, like a phone or tablet. The DART-C will be available at FINsix.com and other resellers beginning in January 2017 for a price of US$99.99. A USB Type-C cable will also be available at FINsix.com as an accessory to previous DART owners for $34.99. Like the DART launched in September 2016, DART-C comes in a variety of colors, including blue, gunmetal, magenta, orange, and silver.

iFixIt tears down Apple’s AirPods

The gang at iFixIt, which tears apart tech products and looks at their innards, has torn apart the new Apple AirPods. Here are the highlights:

A set of AirPods contains three batteries, one in the case and one in each earpiece. The earpiece battery is a 93 milliwatt hour battery, which is about 1% of the charge capacity in an iPhone 7. The battery in the case weighs in at 1.52 Wh—about 16 times the power capacity of the earpiece batteries.   

iFixIt’s X-ray imagery (provided by Creative Electron) shows quality issues in the AirPod case’s processor. Excessive empty spaces in the solder, known as voiding, “could be evidence of low quality standards, or a rushed product release.”

Accessing any case component is impossible without destroying the outer casing, earning the AirPods a 0/10 on iFixIt’s repairability scale.

Update: As of December 20, Apple has officially extended these discounts on USB-C accessories (including the monitors) to the end of March 2017. All other details about the discounted pricing is the same as before.

Original story: Apple is offering an olive branch to new MacBook and MacBook Pro buyers annoyed that their old stuff won't work with their new laptops. The company is discounting most of the USB-C cables, dongles, and accessories it sells in its online and retail stores. The downside? The discounts only last from now...

Patent report: woven Apple Watch bands with images...

Future Apple Watches could have woven display bands that display image. Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,521,885) for a woven fabric includes light transmissive fibers woven into the fabric to provide a visual display. The fabric may be used as a tether to releasably connect a portable electronic device to a user. The light transmissive fibers may transmit light to convey information to the user. The fabric may also be used as part of the housing of an electronic device.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that modern portable electronic devices may be carried by a user or they may be removably attached to the person of a user by means of straps or other tethers which may be decorative tethers. These tethers prevent the user from dropping or losing the device and function as a convenience to the user.

Apple says that, while useful for such purposes, these tethers are generally decorative and serve no useful information providing, or other...

Apple In Talks With India To Manufacture Locally

Apple is in talks with India's government to explore making products locally, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, as the U.S. firm aims to make deeper inroads in the world's second-largest mobile phone market by users. From a report: India Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to boost technology manufacturing in the country through his 'Make in India' initiative. His government in June exempted foreign retailers for three years from a requirement to locally source 30 percent of goods sold in their stores. The Journal said Apple, in a letter to the federal government in November, outlined manufacturing plans and asked for financial incentives.

Apple reduces prices on USB-C adapters

Update: Apple has extended the discount pricing on USB-C adapters to March 31, 2017. (This story originally posted on November 4, 2016.)

Apple on Friday made life a little more affordable for anyone buying a new MacBook Pro. The company has lower the prices for many of its USB-C adapters, which are necessary for users who want to connect their devices to the new laptop. But the price cuts only last until the end of this year.

The new MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, which have a different connector than that of USB-A devices and cables like the iPhone sync cable. That means you need to buy an adapter. Depending on your devices, you may need to buy several adapters.

The Mac has a great future. Apple is losing interest in the Mac. Jony Ive is bored with the Mac. A flurry of reports all claim differing states of the Mac.

In a post to an employee message board obtained by TechCrunch, Apple CEO Tim Cook had this to say: ““Some folks in the media have raised the question about whether we’re committed to desktops. If there’s any doubt about that with our teams, let me be very clear: we have great desktops in our roadmap. Nobody should worry about that.”

Cook cited the far better performance of desktop computers, including screen sizes, memory, storage and more variety in I/O as a reason that they are “really important, and in some cases critical, to people.”

Sometimes it's just not worth it to peek behind the curtain and find out how the magic happens. That's the feeling you get from iFixit after the teardown champs took on their latest challenge: Apple's AirPods.

These tiny wearables pack a lot of power into a small space. They've got Bluetooth, beamforming microphones, optical sensors, a motion accelerometer, a 93 milliwatt battery (we'll get to that), and speakers. It's no surprise there's little room among all those components for grace and an easy entry point.

LG UltraFine 5K Display now available to order

The LG UltraFine 5K Display, which Apple touts as the high-end external display to use with the new MacBook Pros, is finally available to order for US$974. Orders were initially estimated to ship in 3-5 business days, but that’s quickly slipping. 

However, Apple has extended the $974 pricing until March 31. After this, the price will be $1,299.

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.

When Apple unveiled its latest MacBook Pro models, making particular reference to their ability to drive multiple 4K and 5K monitors, some wondered whether the company was readying itself to exit the desktop market – as it has already done for displays.

Even Apple’s own employees appeared to share this concern, with one asking on the company’s internal Apple Web system ‘Are Mac desktops strategic for us?’.

Tim Cook was quick to offer reassurance, stating that the desktop market was ‘very strategic’ for Apple, and that the company has ‘great desktops in our roadmap.’ There were, though, a couple of problems with this assurance …

Apple reportedly in talks to manufacture in India

Apple is reportedly discussing with the Indian government the possibility of manufacturing its products in the country. In a November letter, the Cupertino, California-based comps y outlined its plans and sought financial incentives to move ahead, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Making goods such as iPhones locally would allow Apple to open its own stores in India, helping build its brand in a country where it has less than 5% of a booming smartphone market. Getting a foothold in India has been a challenge for Apple. The company has opened its retail stores in a number of countries around the world, but not in India. The country has restrictive real estate investment laws for foreign companies.
